Say what you need to say OR thank you John Mayer

I have a smart phone (sometimes I call it my smart ass phone) that has all of my music on it.  I usually select Shuffle for the variety.  However, it plays what it thinks I need to hear vs. what I want to hear.  Recently, “Say” by John Mayer has become a personal favorite of my phone.  There is a line that says “Say what you need to say” and this line has come to mean many things for me, including today’s lesson.

I am going to share with you one of the easiest, most basic way to bring more positive experiences, love, prosperity, health, etc. into your life and that is to say, by speaking out loud what you want. There are two ways to speak situations and things into your life. Everyday sayings & planned sayings.

First let me clarify something you do not have to believe what you are saying, you just have to say it.  My bachelor’s degree was in Psychology and there are a number of methods for changing unwanted behaviors.  One method entails changing the person’s mind to change their behavior, thereby changing their world. Saying what you want can and will change your behaviors & change your experiences, your world. Why does this work because you are using your gift of oral “prophecy” to create.

Everyday sayings

Your everyday words, utterances are powerful because when you speak you are usually in a relaxed state and there are no mental blocks to their manifesting. Be careful because your casual words can bring about results that you may or may not want.

Consider my personal example. I have been saying for years that I will not look old. I do not mind getting older but I do not want to look older.  Most people think my adult daughter and I are sisters and never accurately guess my age. I have recently lost weight and people say I look even younger. Casual remarks spoken over time will manifest results in due time.

Use your words carefully.  Always say something positive about yourself like, “I am so lucky” versus “I never seem to get a break.”

Words spoken about others can also create conditions.  So use your words to predict good for others. For example you can say, “I predict that you will find the house that you have been looking for.”

Planned Sayings The second way to bring about change is by using planned words, otherwise known as affirmations. There is enormous power in words and one boldly stated affirmation describing the positive experience you want in your life will help you claim it quickly.

Affirmations How To:  Set aside time everyday and say out loud bold words describing the good you want in your life.  Declare your words with confidence & happiness.  Repeat for a number of times, over a period of time. I can not say how many times or for how long, you will know when to stop–also known as releasing.  Once released know that your words are working for you.

I walk for exercise most days and I have two affirmations that I use. I repeat first one a number of times, for a few minutes and then I say the next one a number of times for a few minutes.  First I say, “With every step I take I loose fat, weight and inches”  and next II say a poem I made up. “1×9 and I look & feel fine.” “1×5 great sakes alive” “1×3 woo look at me” “1xx, 1xx, 1xx this is it” I have not changed my diet much and  have lost  fat, weight and inches. ….. and yes I am loosing weight.

Let me know how it’s going for you.

Hatch Art House Does It Again

I am still new at selling my artwork (I have done a lot of art but I use to just give it away.).  So now I think when I sell a piece, there should at the very least be a public announcement. I really think there should be a news break on all channels and a formal announcement should be made, but hey I will take what I can get.  So here goes HATCH ART HOUSE has sold another one of my artworks and for those keeping score that’s 2.

Thank you “Hatch”.

Today I am working on another project, which means I leave you to enjoy some of my newest art works. The first two are Door County photos and the last two are the same photo done two different ways.  What’s your fav.

Oh what a life we lead

Since I have spent so much time getting ready for the Hatch gallery opening I have not spent as much time on my blog resources so today will be an “Anything Goes” day and Thursday I will feature a guest artist.

In our home we all have jobs to do.  Even though Maya is only 2, here she is doing the dishes and washing the windows.

Here is Bobby on the way to his bedroom.

And of course when someone is bad we have a time-out room.

OR  these are photos from our visit to the Madison Children’s Museum.

Try something different

1st GOOD NEWS: I have found a local printer and will have prints from my posts available in a about a week (meaning in time for the holidays), at my Etsy shop.

Sometimes doing the same thing the same way gets a little, dare I say, boring. Sometimes you have to look at the same old thing in a new and different way.  Sometimes you just have to ….

You can not expect new results when you keep doing the same old behaviors.

Todays photographs are all in Sepia tones.

I forgot to mention that the counting hands in yesterday’s post were curtesy of my top executives (my grandchildren, they are two and four.)

Count your blessings

As I have gotten older it bothers me more and more that we seem to go right from Halloween to Christmas.  What happened celebrating to Thanksgiving.  Giving thanks.  My daughter suggests that the reason Thanksgiving is not celebrated more is because there is nothing to sell.  What has happened to us that we as a people have minimized giving thanks.  So on this “Anything Goes” Thursday I am suggesting that we all take a few minutes and count our blessings.

Do not wait for a crisis to be aware of the blessings in your life.

Sometimes blessings are in disguise

Count your blessings instead of your crosses; count your gains instead of your losses.
