There was a time in my life that I lived in fear and lack. I left a top position with the Psychological Research Department of a major university to start out on my own doing psychic readings full-time. I knew that it was my calling and that I needed to pursue my life path.
Although excited, I quickly started slipping into a deep depression. My family was used to living a certain way and within a few years of leaving my position I was close to being destitute. My clients were struggling financially, so I was giving free readings trying to help, but did not realize the disservice I was doing to them, my family, and myself. I struggled with the awareness that my abilities as a psychic were God-given, while I was charging for my services.
During this time, I was also dealing with the pain that my decision was causing my children. Not only were they hurting due to our financial difficulties, but also some of their friends were no longer allowed to play with them. The word psychic was enough to scare their friend’s parents. Rumors began spreading about me being a ‘witch’ and a ‘Satan worshipper’. Although this could not be further from the truth, I found myself constantly defending my family and myself. I was continually listening to angry and judgmental people speaking from a point of ignorance, along with the negative feedback from my own subconscious mind. I felt alone, in pain, and sadness was my constant emotion. I would read for my clients and give them clarity, counseling, and hope, yet I ignored my Guides and their messages to me.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything ~ George Bernard Shaw
On a particularly difficult morning, I decided to go back to the basics. I had to make a decision and I decided to take the advice I was giving my clients. I stood staring in the mirror with my stack of unpaid bills in one hand and my small note cards with positive affirmations in the other, and I cried. I repeated my affirmations through the sobbing and felt so silly, ridiculous, and hopeless reading aloud how fortunate I was and how I had the ability to manifest wealth and joy.
The wonderful thing about positive affirmations is that they can change your personal energy instantly. Although I had a long way to go, I stopped crying during my positive affirmation sessions within a few days and began to feel better. They also change the energy that you put out into the Universe and I noticed this positive change within my family. I kept constant attention on my own thoughts throughout the days and quickly discovered that most were negative. I began to replace every negative thought with a positive one. I brought my total consciousness to every decision no matter how big or small. I made sure each decision I made honored me. Period. I revamped my own head and energy.
Within a few months, I was on my way to overcoming my self-defeating thoughts and patterns that had become my security blanket and constant companion. I discovered that my limiting beliefs were a safety net that kept me in a victim mentality so much that I believed being abused by people and situations was out of my control. I was using these negatives to explain and justify my misery.
Positive affirmations are now an ingrained habit that I practice every single day, no matter what. I also do not ignore my intuition or messages from my Guides pertaining to me. We all have intuition. We all have the ability to turn our lives into joyous and productive ones. We are all connected by the energies of the Universe and by practicing positive affirmations, we connect to the higher vibrations and rise above the negativity that stunts our emotional growth and keeps us from achieving our dreams and goals.
