I still remember not believing this when I first learned about this concept. I was filled with angry because I was also told that I create my own reality. This was in my early 20’s and I felt like I turned 81 when I was 18. My body ached all over, my mind raced with endless negative thoughts and I shuddered at these words. My life was a red hot mess that I called a “nightmare” and I was in the thick of it.
Little did I know at the time that this would later save my life.
You may have heard this before and perhaps you may believe it or not. I certainly did not want to believe it at first, but there was something inside me that kept egging me on over and over. I’d wake up in a cold sweat from a nightmare – remember I use to call my life a “nightmare.” Then I would not be able to get back to sleep for hours. It was in the wee hours of the morning that I finally gave in and decided to “prove that person wrong!”
Yes, I know, not what you’d expect me to say. Well, I took out my pens and papers and I was all fired up. Yea, right I said, my Words Have Power. Well, I’ll show you how much power they have – I was very sarcastic when I said this and then I added I’ll create money out of thin air. Really, I had nothing to loose because I wasn’t exactly sure how I was going to pay my rent, feed myself or take care of my baby. I was even to the point where I choose to eat crackers so I could grind up the fresh vegetables as I made my baby’s meals.
Deep down I secretly wanted to believe it could be that simple, but the tears from all of the negative thoughts, all of the times I was spit on in school, all of the times I was bullied just kept me from seeing that I could be great and that I could have an impact on the world.
First I was told to get rid of my negative thoughts and words. I was to take a piece of paper and write down every nasty, rotten, horrible word that I have heard, been told, have believe, or have said about myself. I was enraged as I wrote more and more. I wrote so hard that some areas were ripped through with my pens.
Second, I was told to take out a big black marker and put a huge X from corner to corner. I made two X’s because I wrote on both sides of the paper! Yes, I had that much in me and I did this exercise numerous times.
Third, I was told to rip up this paper into tiny pieces. I ripped this up like a mad women. I felt possessed at the time.
Fourth, I was told to Burn this paper. I put this all in a large coffee can and went out into my gravel driveway to set this thing on fire. I even burned the ashes by adding some rubbing alcohol to them and relight them.
Strangely, I felt a rather odd calming starting to take place in me. I mean really, I felt calm for the first time in my life. It was strange for me to feel this way to say the least.
I remember my mentor telling me, “Your words have power, they will make you or they will break you.”
You know what, my words and thoughts were breaking me and I felt like death was just a few steps away from my door.
I was reminded that, “Words have the power to make you wealthy or make you poor.”
My poverty was so extreme at the time. I was poor since my parents divorced shortly after my sister, Vicky, drowned.
After this burning of my negative thought, I set to work by writing down positive ones from You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. It was at the end of Chapter 3 of that book that I obsessed over:
“In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete. The past has no power over me because I am willing to learn and to change. I see the past as necessary to bring me to where I am today. I am willing to begin where I am right now to clean the rooms of my mental house. I know it does not matter where I start, so I now begin with the smallest and the easiest rooms, and in that way I will see results quickly. I am thrilled to be in the middle of this adventure, for I know I will never go through this particular experience again. I am willing to set myself free.” ~ Louise Hay
This book saved my life as well as the hundreds of other books, the mentors, teachers and trainers that I have worked with since then. And honestly, I really did start creating money out of thin air. I always balanced my checking out to the penny, but still I’d start having money in my account that I simply could not account for. I’d start finding money everywhere I went. I’m not talking about pennies, I mean twenty dollar bills. Then I was able to open my mind enough to start my first business. I use to help individuals that were recovery from injuries and surgery with cleaning, cooking, running errands, etc. I am so grateful I was proven wrong!
I’ve been able to test what works and what did not work. From there, I created my own variety of the best and that is what I used to create my programs.
Can you imagine being able to take my 20 years of trial and error and use only what works and get it down pat within 3 to 6 months? That would save you a whole lot of money, time, and frustration won’t it?
