People often ask me how to manifest their desires. One person asked how it was possible to stay positive when faced with the prospect of losing his house.

Imagine you're in a car barreling towards the edge of a cliff. There's already a lot of energy and momentum racing forward. The only way to save yourself from an untimely death would be to halt the vehicle and go in a different direction, away from the cliff.

This is the same kind of thing that's happening when you have an illness or your home is facing foreclosure.

A method of practice that can be incredibly helpful in moving past limiting beliefs are Law of Attraction Affirmations. The energy of your negative experience has been in place for quite some time as a result of longstanding attitudes of lack and unworthiness. The reason you aren't experiencing a positive attitude is because you have not harnessed your own personal power over your emotions and thoughts. Chronic thought patterns of limitation and negativity have caused you to be in your current position.

There is a bright side: you have the power to change your self and your life for the better. I'm not going to kid you and say changing is easy, it's not. Telling yourself positive things isn't going to change your ingrained belief patterns about who you are and what life should be for you. A Law of Attraction Coach can help you release self-defeating beliefs and start you on the right track towards manifestation. Repeating positive affirmations is a good practice, but it's not going to change the guilt or shame you've had since "that life-changing event." Energy is the only language that the Universe understands, it sees past your impression management and your public mask. Your thoughts transmit and your emotions attract. The only way you can change your circumstances is if you change how you think and grab hold of your power. Just take it one piece at a time.

The first place you can start is analyzing your current level of appreciation and gratitude. Make lists of all the things you're grateful for every day. Don't just do this when you feel bad. Step back and take responsibility for the fact that things are the way they are because you haven't been paying attention.You are not just a victim to everything that happens to you. You're much more powerful than you realize. Join forces with an accountability buddy.

There has never been a better time to halt a self-defeating mindset. You'd be surprised how easy it can be to change your life. Just be patient, persistent and keep track of the shifts you see around you. You'll prove it to yourself that you can change your life.
