The Power of Now
When I started my personal recovery and transformation over twenty years ago, I realized early on what I was thinking was directly impacting the path I traveled. I started using affirmations and I must admit being a type “A” personality, I had practically wallpapered my home in them. Everywhere I turned there were yellow patches. I was desperately trying to change that screaming egotistical little voice inside of me that I call mini me. Her name is Louise. Louise is always reminding me that I should of, was less than or never going to. She thrives on negativity and she loves suffering. Happily, I now manage Louise but it took time and effort. Giving my ego an identity helped me to recognize my negative thinking.
I want to share with you a wonderful small book by Eckhart Tolle, “Practicing the Power of Now”. It was instrumental in teaching me to let go of the past, stay out of the future and fully experience the present. Now my emotions and my thoughts are in alignment, allowing me to be a better woman than I thought I could be. As you discover who you really are, you open yourself up to a life of greater achievement and to experience all the good life has to offer. Now all the positive energy I put out there is what the Universe is sending back to me.
