RESET YOUR MINDSET!

Resetting your mindset can be a really powerful tool in helping you create a life exactly how you want it. It's amazing (and a little scary) how many opportunities, coincidences, people and circumstances we block if we're not in the right frame of mind. 

We have so many thoughts in a day and as life gets busier, it's so much harder to control these thoughts and to keep our frame of mind clear and positive. Keeping your mind clear and positive creates a ripple like effect out into the Universe (otherwise called a frequency) and what you're thinking about, will then come about.

It's the Law of Attraction! 

HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TO CHANGE MY MINDSET?

You need to change your mindset if you're struggling with the following:

  • Jealousy
  • Being stuck in a rut (Physically, socially or in your mind) 
  • Time management (Managing your time equally between work, family and social life)
  • Thinking negatively
  • Talking negatively
  • Doubting yourself
  • Lack of inspiration and motivation
  • Unsure of which path to take
  • Turning to your phone/computer/social media when you're overwhelmed 

SO, HOW DO I RESET MY MINDSET?!

Well, there's a few things but let's start with this. 

You have to WANT and be WILLING to change. 

Just like any problem you might have, you're not going to be able to change unless you really want to. 

Get yourself to a point of NEEDING this change. Visualise yourself after this change and feel the feeling of relief and completion. 

Really think about what resetting your mindset means to you. Why did you choose to read this blog and start on the pathway of resetting you mindset? Do you need to clear your headspace? Stop judging people? Focus on something in particular? Begin to think more positively? 

TAKE SOME TIME OUT

I get that life is busy, but in order to clear your head, you have to clear your time. If you're studying - take a study break, if you're a parent - get a babysitter, if your work hours are demanding - take a personal leave day. Your mental health is so important. Small problems like getting overwhelmed or constantly thinking and talking negatively can effect your mental health in big ways down the track. (Even if you don't think it's a problem now.) 

Do yourself a favour by taking a day or a few hours out to re-asses your life and your mindset. This hour or two of self help can be life changing. 

JUST SIT 

If you're into meditation:

Take at least half an hour to meditate in a quiet place with no distractions. Calm your mind, visualise yourself releasing negative energy and breathing in a white light of positive energy. 

Try to get yourself to a state of nothing, so you're seeing nothing and you're thinking nothing. Ask the Universe (or whatever you believe in) to clear your mind and to help you focus on what is important. If you don't know what you need to be focusing on in your life, ask for guidance. 

Guided meditations that I recommend: 

(This is just music, but the frequency (852 Hz is connected to the principle of Light, and Light is a higher form of bioenergy.

This frequency can be used as a means for opening up communication with your higher self and awaken your intuition and inner strength. This frequency can be used to cleanse trapped negative energy and dissolve fear, overthinking and worries.)

If you're not into meditation: 

Still find a quiet calm place to sit. Take in your surroundings and think about what you love about your life, and what you don't. Become clear about how you want to spend your time and how you want to use your energy. 

You could also try one of the guided meditations above and see if you like it! I used to turn my nose up at meditation, but after I tried it and experienced instant results it was hard to stop! 

BE GRATEFUL

The Law of Attraction states that you cannot attract anything new into your life if you're not 100% grateful for what you already have. Now, you can't be cheeky with the Law of Attraction. You can't just say 'okay yeah, I'm grateful for my house,' but be thinking in your mind 'I hate this old dump.' It's not going to work like that. 

You need to get yourself to a state of being SO genuinely grateful. Do what you need to do to get there. What about the memories that house has given you? The happy times you spent in it? How the paint reminds you of your family home growing up. Look around, and do whatever it takes to get yourself to a state of gratefulness. 

Now write down everything you're grateful for. This is SO powerful. I'm talking EVERYTHING from the safety and health of you and your family, to the money in your bank account, to the clothes you own, to the book you're going to read that night, to the person that smiled at you earlier, to the time you have to relax etc.  

If you haven't read my blog on the 30 Day Gratefulness Challenge - Click here. - It literally changed my life! 

LET GO OF THE SMALL STUFF

One of my New Years Resolutions was to stop sweating the small stuff, and I tell ya what! I am loving it. Now that I'm making a conscious effort to focus on the positives and not giving small issues the time of day, I realise how much time and negative energy I was wasting stressing on these tiny things! Think about all the times you have wasted in the past stressing about things that don't matter at all now. 

VISUALIZE

Visualisation is not only fun, inspiring and exciting, it is productive! Visualising what you want puts you on an amazing frequency and sends you on the way to receiving the good stuff in life! 

Visualising can be done at anytime - while meditating, while on the bus, while reading or while on your lunch break. Although, the most powerful time to visualise is when you first wake, or when you're about to fall asleep. 

For those of you who don't know what visualising is, it's basically imagining what you want. Creating a little movie in your mind and playing it out exactly how you want your life to go. Remember, your mind can't tell the difference between imagination and real life - so trick it!  

EXPECT GOOD STUFF

To receive and to fully change your mindset you need to believe that you're worth it all. You need to EXPECT all of this amazing stuff. If you don't believe, you won't receive! 

Wake up every morning with a thankful heart knowing that good things are on their way to you.

MANTRAS

It doesn't just end after this little session unfortunately. You can't just take an hour out and your hard work is done. While the time you take to complete these steps will play a huge part in resetting your mindset and you will feel instantly refreshed, you need to remind yourself each day about what you want and who you are. 

Self talk is a vital exercise in your minds health. Telling yourself you are something and believing it is SO powerful. 

Figure out what mantras work for you and for what you want. Say them over and over, and really BELIEVE what you're saying! 

Some examples:

  • I am loved
  • I am focused
  • I am succesful
  • I am healthy
  • I am worthy
  • I am abundant
  • I am happy
  • I am relaxed
  • I believe in myself
  • My mind is clear
  • I only focus on the good
  • I am finding it easy to stay positive
  • Everything is working out how it should
  • I am thankful for the Universe's guidance
  • I am thankful that everything is under control

5 ways to make today AMAZING

If it were up to us, we would want everyday to be an amazing day. If it were up to us, we would want everyday to be inspiring, fun and uplifting! If it were up to us, we would only want to be surrounded by amazing people and exciting opportunities. Well guess what, it is up to us. It's up to YOU! 

No one else can determine how your day is going to go. It's completely up to YOU. You can choose to have a good day, or you can choose to have a bad day.

Unfortunately we can't control what happens around us, but we can control how we react to it! By being positive you are going to lessen the chances of negative things happening around you, but at the end of the day, other people's lives, are other people's lives. Not yours, not your problem.

Now, back to making today amazing! I always remember this section from 'The Secret'... In Aladdin, you know how the Genie says, 'your wish is my command?' Think of it like this...YOU are Aladdin, and the Genie is the Universe. All along, this fairytale had the Law of Attraction down pat! To receive, you need to believe. Think of it as shopping online. You put your order in, pay for it, and then you 100% believe your package is coming right? Treat the Universe exactly the same! Tell the Universe what you want, and believe that it is coming your way. 

The power of the mind is so incredibly amazing. We literally have the power to control our lives. YOU have the power to do whatever you want in this world.

YOU have the energy you need to manifest your dreams.

You might be thinking... yeah well eventually I will manifest my dreams, and maybe one day I will get the money, or the car or the lifestyle I want. Yes... true. But start today! Small changes result in big and exciting things! 

So today... you wake up, and you want to have an AMAZING day... You want to be your best, most positive self, and you want to attract all the good, unbelievable, incredible, exciting opportunities, people and things in the world. YOU CAN! AND YOU WILL! 

Here are five ways to get started and make today AMAZING: 

  • GRATITUDE! - Say your thank yous! You're not going to attract anything new into your life if you're not thankful for what you already have! Start your day by saying out loud what you're thankful for. (It's amazing how articulating what you're thankful for makes you realise how lucky you are. It puts you in a positive mindset for the day ahead!) Check out my 30 day Challenge which explores this a bit further here: 30 Day Challenge
  • VISUALISE! - What do you want? Spend a minute, 2 minutes, 30 minutes, however long you can, visualising EXACTLY what you want. Not only does this get you excited and motivated, but you're moving forward in more ways than you can imagine. Remember... the brain can't distinguish what is imaginary and real... so trick it!
  • DISTRACT YOURSELF - While having time to meditate, relax and visualise is amazing, one of the main rules of the Law of Attraction is to LET GO! (To let go of your wish, and to trust that it is coming.) I never understood how I was supposed to 'let go' of something that I wanted so badly! Until I did it. I got busy, and forgot... and then BAM! It came to me. So distract yourself with work, with friends, with all of the things that make you HAPPY! 
  • TREAT YOURSELF! - I've said it once and I'll say it again. Stop stressing over the money or time you 'don't have,' stop feeling guilty for eating bad, or not finishing your work that day. We're allowed to fall behind, we're allowed to be lazy, and we're allowed to spend our hard earned money! If we were never lazy, we wouldn't know what it feels like to be productive! If we never spent our money, we wouldn't know how good it felt to earn it! If we never ate bad, we wouldn't get to experience those fun times where we can let loose and indulge!  
  • TRUST THE UNIVERSE! - And finally... trust! It's so exciting that we have a higher power to lean on. For some it might be God, a loved one in Heaven, the Universe, or something completely different! TRUST that you're being guided. If you're having a bad day, or if you're not feeling inspired... remember, the Universe has a plan for you. This is just a little detour, and one day we will understand why it happened. We all have our own path, and we're all on our way, or are already there. If you're on your way, enjoy the journey, if you're already there, be thankful! 

I hope you enjoyed today's blog!
