When we are anxious, we are out of communication with universal energy. We are stuck on the Roller Coaster of Life. We become a hostage of our own life.
The only way to escape this hostage situation is to go deep within your own mind and grant yourself grace.
Stop beating yourself up.
Agree that you fall short of your real potential and move on.
Acknowledge instead that the power to accomplish comes from the Creator. It comes from God, not us. Take the burden off your shoulders.
You are not your family’ expectations.
You are not a victim of your culture.
You are not the sum total of your own past criticisms.
You are much, much bigger than any current circumstance.
DROP THE AFFIRMATIONS.
Affirmations come from man and are weak. “Every day in every way, blah blah blah.”
Instead use prayers and mantras to change your circumstance and your life.
Prayers and mantras are of Divine origin and carry Divine power and truth.
When you say a prayer or mantra, you aren’t relying on your own piddly mental faculties but the power of the Divine Creator.
If you are unsure of what to pray, try the prayer of Jabez in the Old Testament:
And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying,
Oh that thou would bless me indeed, and enlarge my property, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou would keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me.
And God granted him that which he requested. (KJV)
