You have to believe to receive… such a familiar phrase this time of year. Maybe you have caught yourself saying this to your kids or you recall this being said to you.
When it comes to creating an amazing life, being able to dream and visualize is the first step. Cultivating every detail leaves us with a sense of destination and that’s where the magic is… because having a destination stirs up the energy to get started. As Frank Lloyd Wright puts it “ The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen”. And here’s the cool science stuff that backs that up; Neuropsychologists have found that the brain learns what to expect next – whether it eventually happens that way or not. When our brain expects something will happen a certain way, it often achieves exactly what it anticipates. For that reason its so important to hold positive expectations in your mind. When you begin to believe that what you want is possible – your brain will actually take over the job of accomplishing that possibility for you. Better than that, your brain will actually expect to achieve that outcome.
Believe that the universe if filled with kindness and compassion and you will find kindness and compassion all around you. Believe that life gives you a second chance and you will see new opportunities surrounding you. Believe that you can overcome anything that is put in front of you and you will overcome everything. Believe and you shall receive.
