Lisa... Great post... thanks for the reminder. I am generally a very positive person... I've learned to "change the channel" on my thinking to make adjustments... LOL.

Thanks for another great post Lisa!! I was just thinking this morning how keenly aware of any negative thoughts I've been. I'm grateful, because it makes me stop, "cancel" that thought, and replace it with something positive or something I do want. I've been aware of neg. thinking for years, but I didn't really realize that when we think about what we don't want, that sets an intention as well. Everytime I hear myself saying I hope I don't this or I hope this doesn't happen, I can turn it around and set an intention for what I do want to happen. It's proven very successful!

Lisa, Thank you for another excellent post.

We are not trees." "Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity." -- Louis Pasteur, Chemist and Microbiologist
As always, Lisa, an excellent post! As soon as we catch ourselves thinking of what we don't want, this is a great way to immediately bring your attention back on what you do want. Wayne's books keep getting better and better, and The Power of Intention is one of my favorites.
Thanks for sharing this.

I have been listen to that audio book the past few days. It's very inspiring and keeps my thinking in the right place. Thanks for the quotes...again. You are a blessing to the group...
Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.

This is great information from Wayne Dyer's book, The Power of Intention. I think this is where a lot of people get "stuck"...they are focusing on what they want to get rid of, instead of what they want to attract in their life. Make it a great day. Lisa
Thinking about what's missing in your life. To match up with intention, you first have to catch yourself in that moment you're thinking about what's missing. Then shift to intention. Not what I find missing in my life, but to what I absolutely intend to manifest and attract into my life...with no doubts, no waffling, and no explaining! Here are some suggestions to help you break the habit of focusing your thoughst on what's missing. Play a version of the match game, and match up with the all-creating force.
No match: I don't have enough money. Match: I intend to attract unlimited abundance into my life.
No match: My partner is grouchy and boring. Match: I intend to focus my thoughts on what I love about my partner.
No Match: I'm not as attractive as I'd like to be. Match: I'm perfect in the eyes of God, a divine manifestation of the process of creation.
No Match: I don't have enough vitality and energy. Match: I'm part of the ebb and flow of the limitless Source of all life.
This isn't a game of empty affirmations. It's a way of matching yourself to the power of intention and recognizing that what you think about, expands. If you spend your time thinking about what's missing, then that's what expands in your life. Monitor your inner dialogue, and match your thoughts to what you want and intend to create.
All the mental energy you spend complaining about "what is"...to anyone who will listen...is a magnet for attracting more of what is into your life.
No Match: I hate this place we're living in; it gives me the creeps. Match: I can see our new home in my mind, and I intend to be living in it within six months.
No Match: When I see myself in the mirror, I despise the fact that I'm nearsighted and out of shape. Match: I'm placing this drawing of how I intend to look right here on my mirror.
No Match: I dislike the work I'm doing and the fact that I'm not appreciated. Match: I'll act upon my inner intuitive impulses to create the work or job of my dreams.
No Match: I hate the fact that I'm sick so often and always seem to be getting colds. Match: I am divine health. I intend to act in healthy ways and attract the power to strengthen my immune system in every way I can.
