Month of January/February 2007
Achieving your Dreams through the Power of your Mind 

As 2007 arrived, what did you dream for? Prosperity? Health? Harmony? Whatever you wished for, you can manifest in your life, but only if…Yes, there is an “if”… To be able to manifest anything in this world, you must first believe it in your subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind holds the key to our expressing and manifesting in this world. So, in order to create that new job or more money or getting rid of that illness, we must first access our subconscious mind and make sure that it accepts our wish. How do we do this? First, we need to understand that only because we wish something or because we think we deserve something, it does not mean that we automatically can manifest it in our lives. Nor can our dreams become reality but just praying. We must also believe it with our subconscious mind. The Universe can’t bring anything to us unless we open the doors of that mind. In other words, deep in our minds, we must hold the belief that we are worth it, that we are special, that we are children of God and that, therefore, it is our birth right to have all the abundance, the peace, and harmony in this world. Instead of seeing ourselves as deserving, beautiful and powerful beings, most of us see ourselves as not good enough, with low confidence, low self esteem. This is the part we must first change. We must begin to believe with all of our hearts the truth of who we truly are, beautiful, powerful, deserving. We must believe this with more than our conscious mind, we must believe it with our subconscious mind and with our hearts. 

Our subconscious mind loves and understands images, and so a very effective way to communicate with this part of our mind is through images, or what we call, visualization. Think of your subconscious mind as a garden where we have planted many things. We have planted good beliefs, and unknownly, some not so good. Let’s call the good beliefs flowers, and let’s call the not so good, weeds. We want to feed the flowers and get rid of the weeds. Here is a good way to work with this garden in your mind. Every morning as you awaken, stay in bed for a few minutes and create an image in your mind. Imagine a garden filled with beautiful flowers. Imagine that the different variety of flowers represent different areas of your life, like prosperity, abundance, good health, good relationships, etc. Without giving much attention look at the weeds, observe them too. Come up with your own images, your own ways of removing the weeds, those areas you want to remove from your life, such as low self esteem, a life of financial difficulties, illnesses. See yourself killing these weeds, unrooting them in your own way. Now, feed the flowers knowing what they represent. Send them love, water them, give them sunshine. See the flowers become bigger and more beautiful. Feel the joy in your heart as you see the flowers grow. Do this every single morning and do the same as you fall sleep at night. If you have time, take a couple of minutes and do at noon too. There is no such a thing as too much visualization. The more you do it, the faster you will see results. Remember that it is very important to feel emotions as you visualize, to feel the joy and happiness of knowing that the garden is becoming more and more beautiful. During the day, do not give power to the weeds by thinking of the negative aspects of your life, only focus on the positive, on your blessings. Remember that your thoughts will be feeding either the flowers or the weeds. We want to make sure we starve the weeds and feed the flowers. You have the most powerful mind, have fun this year creating what you deserve. Happy gardening and many blessings to you.
