When you take a good look at yourself in the morning what do you see? Someone who is not thin enough? Not smart enough? Not pretty enough? Why is there always that sense of lacking something? Why can’t we look in the mirror and see the beauty encompassing our being…the radiance within that shines so brightly if we simply allow it to be seen?

You can change your beliefs at any given moment. You can move away from the scarcity mindset into a feeling of gratitude for the abundance in your life simply by focusing on the positive instead of the negative. Deepak says, “Finding a path back to your source is a matter of letting life settle down to where it wants to be. What you seek, you already are.” When you stop looking for change outside of yourself and turn inward and simply allow for the realization of your unique talents and gifts, you unlock your unlimited potential.

Like a present waiting to be unwrapped, that beautiful gift lies dormant inside until you choose to reveal it. Start at the source and seek all the answers from within. Don’t follow someone else’s map. Don’t wait for a miracle. Follow the flow of your awareness. Don’t resist what is ready to manifest inside if only given the chance. Open yourself to the unknown and stop censoring what you intuitively know to be true. Reach beyond yourself and be genuine and speak your truth. The truth will set you free of your ego and self-limiting beliefs. Let the center be your home. According to Deepak Chopra, the next time you see your life from a place of lack, instead you can:

– Say, “This situation may be shaking me, but I am more than any situation.”
– Take a deep breath and focus your attention on whatever your body is feeling.
– Step back and see yourself as another person would see you.
– Realize your emotions are not reliable guides to what is permanent and real. They are momentary reactions, and most likely they are born of habit.

This change of perspective will bring an awareness which allows the fight between good and evil, and us and them to calm down in their clashes to make way for a world in which your beautiful self can emerge…a world you deserve to call home.
