As many of you know, I am always searching for self help outside the box. Last night I watched a DVD with my hubby that a friend gave us. She also gave us the book "You Can Heal Your Life" by Louise Hay. She was trying to help us change the tendency to speak negatively about things in general.

The principal is that if you have negative self talk, you get negative life experiences. But as you change your self talk to positive affirmations, then your life will attract those types of life experiences. Not to say it is without challenge, but keeping positive is so vital to experience a truly happy life. There are hundreds of similar teachings out there, but I thought I would get serious about giving this one a try.

Here are some samples of Affirmations to say to ourselves to help us over come different things in our lives. It will sound weird at first, but the author encourages us to do it in a mirror and talk to ourselves, face to face. Then as we grow, to gain the emotions to back it up and soon we will find we are taking steps that are in sync with our affirmations. Kind of cool! Can't hurt to give it a try.

Problem: Depression
Probable Cause: Anger you feel you do not have a right to have. Hopelessness
Affirmation: "I now go beyond the other people's fears and limitations. I create my life"

Problem: Hip Problems
Probable Cause: Fear of going forward in major directions. Nothing to move forward to.
Affirmation: "I am in perfect balance. I move forward with ease and with joy at every age."

Problem: Hyperglycemia Mellitus
Probable Cause: Longing for what might have been. A great need to control. Deep sorrow. No sweetness left.
Affirmation: "This moment is filled with joy. I now choose to experience the sweetness of today."

Problem: Hypoglycemia
Probable Cause: Overwhelmed by the burdens in life. What's the use?
Affirmation: "I now choose to make my life light and easy and joyful."

Problem: Infection
Probable Cause: Irritation, anger and annoyance
Affirmation: "I choose to be peaceful and harmonious."

Well, the list goes on…it is huge and covers all kinds of things.

NOW, I am not saying do this and ignore your doctor or stop meds. I am not saying that this is a CURE for your diabetes. It is just a way to keep a positive thought process when you are dealing with some of the harder knocks that life throws our way.

Negativity is a difficult habit to break, but the results are well worth all of the effort it takes. Life takes on a whole different flavor when you are expecting good things instead of hunting for the bad things.

Expectation is the key. Worry revolves around doubt and fear of bad things happening. That is an expectation and if we throw that out there, we get it back.

For so many years I have focused on the loss of my job, my home and nearly all that I it is time to turn that around.

Funny how things have changed. Just in this month, my work load has increased by 100% and is growing each day. My overall feeling of well being is growing and when that feeling is there, the choices I make in my daily life become better. It is wonderful.

It is hard to do to start with but gets easier with time. Every time you are caught in a negative situations or you think something negative about someone or catch yourself saying something negative turn it around immediately to something positive ie:

I praise and bless you, (them) and send out feelings of love, joy and peace. I wish you (them) perfect health/all the best in the future. THIS IS A FACT.

I send out STRONG, LOVING, POSITIVE ENERGY OUT into the Universe. To encircle and enter into every Human Being, Animal, Plant life and Inanimate Object. Let that energy be so strong it sparks of each others’ energy like a strong electric current, and lights up the whole Universe with STRONG, LOVING, POSITIVE ENERGY. THIS IS A FACT.

Or think of something/someone that brings you immense pleasure or makes you feel really happy. It immediately shifts your energy back to Positive.

My husband and I call it seeding the universe. We sow seeds of good and expect good to grow from it. Some seeds grow faster than others, but they all grow. I think my time in the garden helps me with this visual. When I plant tomato seeds in the soil, I expect a tomato plant to appear. When I plant good health seeds in the universe, I expect good health to grow.

YES—-I have practiced this type of thinking for years…and it seriously works. However, I am now being tested…I am so stressed about falling behind on last year's taxes and on this years, I don't know how much more I can take—YEAH, it's VERY stressful, as I could lose both my jobs—-I doubt that will happen—I have checked into that…found out it won't, but it's making me real paranoid—I have never fallen behind like this with taxes—-I am going to get one hell of a letter in the very near future from the IRS—-I am barely above poverty line and I work 2 jobs, but I keep trying in this case, TRYING super hard to stay focused on the positive—-I am literally busting sweats from the stress—-earlier today, my biggest nightmare flashed across my mind—-what if my wages get garnished? I'd be fired from at least one of my jobs—my full time one if this nightmare of a thing were to happen, I went over everything—-they won't just go in and garnish my wages unless I'm 2 years late—even still, to even THINK about that possibility sent a HUGE SURGE of SHEER " OH MY GOD" into me—-I'm going to be praying probably the hardest I have every prayed this week—-tonight and so on and so forth.

Contact the IRS, they will work with you to set up a payment plan. We found ourselves in a similar situation a few years back and they set up a payment plan for us.
