By thinking about what you want, it enters our subconscious, which may or may not surface into conscious thought. If you allow your thoughts to remain conscious, and think about that intensely. Then you will attract those things to which you are thinking.
If you are to change your life you must attract what you want. The secret to your own success lies within understanding your strengths first as a human, than as a unique human.
To think about your thoughts, is to be conscious.
To make decisions for your life, is to have will.
To influence your life, you must use empathy.
And to practice empathy, you must love yourself.
Do you see how you must always work from within?
Everything else about your own human experience, is because you brought it into your life.
That’s the action part… Don’t get get mad at me yet, just keep reading.
For lack of the official definition, when I say intention I mean that which is willed into action by empathy or greed.
These are the only options Will has. I mentioned that I’m practicing turning “good to wanted” and “bad to unwanted” within my conscious thoughts. And it’s because I want to change how I intend on living a more loving, purposeful life. If my intention is to bring that which I “Want” then my will will easily decide to take action upon which will intentionally bring me what it is I want. That’s easy to get.
The tough one to crack is the word “bad” because it’s “bad”. And not all things that are bad, are ACTUALLY bad. They are just things that you don’t want. And when it comes to things that are bad there are also the associations with fears, resentments, emotional grudges, and more negative attractions. With these bad thoughts come feelings that are powerful, and can derail your will. Second guessing your actions because of fear, anger, or false truths can and will attract only more of which you do not want in your life.
For these reasons, when I think of something I “don’t want” I can easily dismiss it. It’s much more enjoyable to think about that which I want. Where what is “bad” I as a human, tend to over think which ruins any of my true intention for that which I want.

New post in the Life of Purpose series, writing about the Universal Law of Attraction. Specifically actions, the choice between good and bad, and willing yourself to choose love! #lifespurpose #motivationmonday #luvlifewlee #luvlife #lovinglife #selflove #lawofattraction #universallaw
For a small exercise I want you to think of something that you think about all the time…
The thing that is the worse, the baddest habit, the one thing in life you can’t seem to change about yourself – that you don’t like. And I want you to ask yourself in this moment that if you didn’t consciously think about that unwanted trait/habit/imperfection at all. If it … would have any relevance to any other part of your life?
For example, maybe you really don’t like the bad names that others call you at school, work, or social environment. Maybe its your best friends nickname for you? And secretly, you don’t like the way it feels to you. But if you didn’t think that it was bad nickname, would it be? Is it the name? The word? The tone? The friend? What is it exactly that you find that you don’t want to occur any longer. If you were to stop thinking about it today, and dismiss it completely. That either a) you would no longer be troubled by the nickname or b) the nickname would no longer be repeated by your friend. As if they forgot it themselves.
Another example might be, if you really hate the size of your garage or shed. Like, it’s totally crazy to you to even have a garage that small! And it drives you mad, absolutely can not stand, to even go out there because it’s so upsetting that the space is “too small to use”.
So let’s pretend that you completely forget the fact that it’s small, and every time you think about it you dismiss the “fact” that it’s “small” from your thoughts. The garage wouldn’t change shape at all. But for the sake of this exercise in thought, let’s admit that soon you wouldn’t care if it was big or small and you would find a way to use the space. Back to an original point, the garage would no longer be big or small, it would be as it is.
I’m going to talk about this more tomorrow but in the mean time, I want to you to try to “not think about the bad stuff”.
I mean it. Try not to. Filter your thoughts for a while. And I don’t want you to dwell on them, I want you to accept how they make you feel briefly and then dismiss them. Or even better, transmute them into something you do want.
I have so many bills today pay today.
Instead think about all the things you have in your life that you love and thank yourself for the opportunity to care for your financial assets.
Take breaks when you pay these bills after each one and think about the hard work you’ve put in as appreciation of the bill you paid. If you do not find joy in this bill, then you must ask yourself if it is worth having at all.
If it’s the electricity then gosh by golly, we must not loose gratitude for this amazing technology!
If it is the internet, thank the world for this amazing opportunity you have to read and write a blog or interact with loved ones far away from you.
If it’s an entertainment bill then be thankful you have these memories to look back on, and plan your next outing with care.
If it’s a bill for your car/transportation than of course, be thankful you have this luxury! And be proud that you have this asset in your life!
Bills and expenses for assets that do not bring you joy, should not be paid. Be mindful about where you are spending. (I should take my own advice!)
What about your life do you think is “good or bad”? Is it REALLY?
What about something “big or small” that may just be of the wrong perception right now?
