Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down – Karen Carpenter –

It always fascinates me how many ways we limit ourselves on a daily basis. We have created a belief in limitation and when we put boxes around situations they become true for us. Some people feel that they will always have the same sickness that their parents have… or they will die at the same age their parents did… or that true love will not happen to them. Some people feel rainy days make them depressed.. while others thrive when it rains… love to go play in it… and knows that the flowers benefit tremendously. After having my own business for so many years, I was so shocked when I returned to the corporate world and realized how many people are living in small mindsets. One guy spent the entire day on Monday trying to wake up. All day long on Monday he would complain that he was so tired… and on Wednesday, he was happier because it was the middle of the week and on Friday he was preoccupied by what he and his kids were doing for the weekend. He spent his time walking around the office and just looking at what others were doing. It appeared he would only work three out of the five days he was at work. I guess we could say that if anything… he was consistent. However, he robbed an employer that paid him good money by a reality that he created for himself and then he wondered why he was not a great success.

Think this week about your beliefs and how you set yourself up. Do you say before you even enter a week how tired you are going to be… or before you ever date a new person that love will let you down.

Change the patterns that keep you from realizing your highest potential.

People often think of affirmations as glorified “positive thinking.” In Unity, we believe the words we declare to be our truth become our truth.As we grow spiritually, we become more aware of the words we use to define ourselves.We become sensitive to the seeds we are planting in our daily lives.

Higher State of Mind

Higher State of Mind

So many people have come to accept death as a way of life. People die a little each day when they get up in the morning and start their day with the focus of what is missing, then they go to get the newspaper which tells them there is not enough oil, air, life, and…

Prayer Paths

Prayer Paths

In one region of Africa, the first converts to Christianity were very diligent about praying. In fact, the believers each had their own special place outside the village where they went to pray in solitude. The villagers reached these “prayer rooms” by using their own private footpaths through the brush. When grass began to grow…
