What’s your superpower?
My superpower is my imagination.
I have the ability to paint the most incredible pictures in my mind that ultimately come to fruition. Ever since I was a little kid, I would lock myself in my room and write stories, create Radio shows and act out my dream life.
I would flip through magazines and pick out my designer clothes or watch MTV cribs and argue that my house was the best on the block.
I have the ability to SEE the silver lining in any and every situation.
Kinda like the Rose that grew from concrete, I choose to focus on the things I wanted to see and leave behind anything that did not serve my higher vision.
My imagination allowed me to live on Central Park North (110th street) in a high rise building with beautiful vistas of lower Manhattan and a doorman. When the reality is, I grew up in low-income housing in Harlem and those doormen were drug dealers. Who constantly stood in front of the building and monitored the comings and goings of everyone.
But my imagination allowed me to tell a different story. I choose to focus on the fact that I lived a few blocks from Central Park and envisioned myself with Condo near the MET. And it wasn’t like I lied but I just stretched the truth - you know bent it a little bit.
I was naive to what was really going on around me but it kept me safe - it kept me believing in BEAUTY OF THE WORLD.
I have an innocent to me because I’ve always believed everything is working out for my highest good. So I told myself what I needed to HEAR to get through life.
I mean give a kid a break and allow her to have a normal childhood but the thing I love most about my imagination is that it’s a key component to the Law of Attraction training.
Any law of attraction teacher will say - You have to begin to tell the story of your life as you WANT it to be and NOT how it has been or currently is.
Even as a little kid, I told the story of HOW I wanted my life to be, so it’s no coincidence that my life is constantly growing and evolving - giving me everything I desire because I FOCUS ON WHAT I WANT.
I don’t waste time looking at how things currently are because that’s based on previous thoughts and there is NOTHING we can do to change that.
The debt your in is based on PREVIOUS financial choices.
The extra weight you put on is based on PREVIOUS dietary choices.
The lack of success you experience is based on PREVIOUS fears.
Everything you are currently experiencing is based on PREVIOUS thoughts, beliefs, and ideas and it’s useless to waste time over the past. The BEST use of your resources is the present moment and the thoughts, beliefs, and ideas you have now.
Quit blaming yourself for things in the past - when you have an opportunity right now to change them. Give yourself permission to tell a new story - the story of how you WANT it to be.
Focusing on what you REALLY want to manifest in your life.
It is as simple as rephrasing the words you use every day -
I hate my body — I love my body.
I never have enough money — I always have enough money.
Men are evil — I attract the most incredible men.
I hate my job —I am fortunate to do work Iove.
CALL IN WHAT YOU WANT.
Honestly, ask yourself every day “what do I want”?
Then deliberately FOCUS your time and energy on those thoughts, telling a more high vibe story. You will create an abundance vibration into the Universe and your life will start to radically change - offering you everything you’ve been focusing on.
— I know you may be shaking your head in disbelief but think about what you’ve been focusing on thus far - all the negative ISH you think about every day is totally your life. You don’t have the money, job, car, relationship or health that you desire because you CHOOSE to focus on it not being here.
So that’s what you get - nothing.
Change your words. Change your vibration.
Begin to look for reasons to feel good - before you even get out of bed in the morning - find three reasons to feel good. They can be anything - like I’m glad I’m alive, my bed is so warm and comfy, I’m thrilled I got a Good nights rest - totally anything that will put you in a high vibe state.
Thoughts create your reality.
You know when people say they woke up on the wrong side of the bed, it’s because they are focusing on the wrong things. They are already thinking about how they have a long day ahead of them, all the things that won’t go right or what little sleep they got.
Constantly searching for reasons to complain — resulting in more things to complain about.
What you focus on expands - focus on what you want to calll in your life — PROSPERITY 🙌🏽🙌🏽
