Keys to Consciously
Creating Your Future:
Changing Gears and Switching Thoughts
by Jackie Lapin

Are negative thoughts and energy habits keeping you from a happy and abundant future? Unwittingly, you may be an UnConscious Creator rather than a Conscious Creator. UnConscious Creators can’t comprehend why their life is falling apart, why their employment is unsatisfying, and why they can’t find the right partner. They feel angry, victimized and depressed. UnConscious Creators are accidentally manifesting their own misery!

The Art of Conscious Creation by Jackie Lapin

On the other hand, Conscious Creators have a clear vision for what they want, and have faith that everything will turn out all right.  They continuously emit kind, loving, positive energy -- regardless of what happens. Not everything goes perfectly for Conscious Creators, but their trajectory remains in a positive direction. When confronted with a challenge, Conscious Creators recognize they have a choice in how they handle it -- both in their emotional and real worlds. With this enlightened outlook and vision, they contribute to manifesting a better world for everyone! Conscious Creators allow their positive energy to open amazing pathways for them!

If you wish to join the ranks of Conscious Creators visualizing and manifesting a satisfying life, you must leave behind negative “energy habits.” Here are a couple ways to accomplish that:

Switching Thoughts -- Monitor your thoughts. If you’re thinking something negative, flip it around to a positive. Change from: “I hate that my vacation was cancelled” to “Now I can tour those museums near my home that I’ve wanted to see for a long time.”  Switch from: “I got dumped by my boyfriend” to “I learned a lot in that relationship and look forward to applying it positively in the next one.” Don’t fixate, dwell or rehash the past.  Don’t blame, fume, pass judgment or feel victimized. Instead, feel empowered to act with positive intent.  Think how you can become a more compassionate, better person for yourself and others. Be the upbeat, positive person everyone likes to have around -- the person seemingly blessed by the world. The path to a promising future starts in your mind.

Change Your Words -- Your mind must guide your tongue. Before speaking, think. Instead of saying things that imply your own limitations and failures -- or someone else’s -- choose carefully the words you use. Put them in a positive light. Speak with endless possibility and faith in the future. Refrain from expressing complaints or gossip. Speak with consideration for others and use words to create a positive bridge, even when there is disagreement. Words that flow from your mouth should be the footsteps to a great future.

Go for a Walk -- Keeping on the topic of footsteps…If you feel a funk coming on, go for a walk. Use the stroll not to dwell, but to adjust attitude. Listen to the birds, look at the trees and adore the sun. Think how wonderful life is and how you can make it better. Let the emotion relax you. Allow the goodwill to wash over you. If music makes you upbeat, walk with your iPod tuned to your favorite songs.

Love the Moment/Be in the Moment -- To stop negative rehashing of the past or fixation on the future, do something novel -- BE IN THE MOMENT. Listen to what’s going on around you, take a deep breath, smell the roses, cuddle your pooch. Enjoy that very moment and love it for being present.

Imagine Joy -- Maybe it wasn’t a great day, but let’s still imagine joy. Kick up your feet and recall some fantastic moment in your life. Better yet, create a vision of the future that will bring joy.  Allow yourself to revel in that experience. The emotion of joy will attract even more joy.

Conduct Random Acts of Kindness -- Really want to feel good about life? Then help somebody. It may be someone you know and love, or a person you’ve never met. Just be nice and it will raise your positive energy. Do it more than once and it’ll become habitual in a good way!

Walk a Mile in Someone Else’s Shoes -- Before jumping down someone’s throat, put yourself in their shoes. Maybe that person has an ill family member, hasn’t had the benefit of your level of education, or came from a different culture with unique values. It is always better to initiate interaction from a position of understanding and compassion, and your own stock will rise in goodwill and positive energy.

Surf the Love Vibration -- Conscious Creators generate waves of love in their world. Be kind and loving. Tell someone how much they mean to you.  Don’t forget to love yourself. Surfing the Love Vibration lets you resonate with the Universe and ride the wave of goodwill, good fortune and joy.

Interact with High Energy People -- Change the folks you hang out with. Find people who are upbeat, optimistic, thoughtful and kind. Look for fellow Conscious Creators…they may teach you something!

Be True to Yourself -- If you are dissatisfied with your career, relationships, your status in the world; leave behind that which troubles you by finding a new path; or change the situation using positive thoughts, energy, deeds and diplomacy. Most of all, be true to you and don’t be afraid to ditch a miserable situation.  Be honest with yourself about what is and isn’t working in your life.

Give Yourself a Break -- Negative energy isn’t always directed outward. Remember to not be too hard on yourself.  Forgive yourself; recognize that it’s OK to be “imperfect” and that you are truly an amazing being! Go ahead and ask your friends what they love about you.

Present an Attitude of Gratitude -- Count your blessings each and every day. Say thanks to the Universe for all the good in your life, and remember how incredibly fortunate you really are.

Do these things and you’ll clear the path to becoming a Conscious Creator, manifesting the future you desire!
