Can one of the most traumatic experiences in your life make you stronger? You bet it can! Maybe not initially, but, it is impossible to go through a divorce, a job loss, or a health crisis and not be a changed person. The key is it IS up to you. Will you cave in and let your life completely fall apart? Or will you take charge and become the best, strongest person you can be and create a life you only previously dreamed about.  Read the 7 ways loss makes you a stronger person.

The shocking moment I learned of my husband’s infidelity left me devastated. After 21 years of marriage everything was falling apart. I did go through a dark period and had trouble getting out of bed in the morning. But, one day I thought this is not how I want the rest of my life to be. It took time, but, today I am a better, stronger person and wake up feeling happy and grateful for the life I created. And you can do the same!

1. You will learn to live in the present moment. By staying in the present moment you can avoid all the “What ifs?” about your future and just deal with your life day by day. When the stress would be overwhelming, I would stop and take a few deep breaths. This simple tool worked wonders for me and helped me to stay centered and present.
2. You will learn to say “no” with assertiveness. Be protective of your time and nurture yourself through the transition and afterward. It is ok to relate to others in a different way and it is ok to say no without guilt attached to it. Treat yourself with kindness and love. Before my divorce, my priorities took a back seat. I put everyone else first, gradually that changed and I can now say “no.”
3. You will learn that alcohol or drugs do not numb the pain. They may help ease the pain temporarily, but, one day you will allow yourself to feel the hurt. This is the beginning of healing, forgiving, and moving on. You are alive and can create a positive outcome.
4. You will learn to face your fears. Fears do not go away, we need to walk up to them, embrace them and then, they will fall away. Consider fears to be your friends, they are helping you to grow stronger.
5. You will learn that change can bring gifts. It is a gift of a new life. Live your dream. Develop your passions. Get out, get moving and try new things.
6. You will learn that you will survive. With this survival comes a new you that can handle just about anything. Imagine all the doors and possibilities that will open up for you. Dream big, you deserve it.
7. You will learn that forgiveness is vital. Forgiveness does not mean you condone someone’s behavior, it cuts the ties. Do not be a prisoner to your past. Let it lose and let it go.

Try to stay positive with your thoughts and action. We attract what we think. Expect the best and you will receive the best! Endings are also new beginnings.

What does success mean to you? Success is different for everyone. To one person, it might be lots of money. To another, a powerful position. To another a wonderful, loving relationship. Using the magic of believing with creative thinking, you can achieve success.

Lot of people work hard, but, are not successful. Hard work alone is not enough to achieve you dreams. You must believe in them and have a very clear picture of what it is you want. A vague picture of success will not bring it to you. You must have a burning desire to achieve your objective of success.

Aimlessly drifting through life, like a log going down a river, will not bring you your desires. You must first determine in very clear terms what it is you desire. You must visualize it and clearly picture yourself as successful.

The visualization charges your sub-conscious mind. Our sub-conscious mind is a powerhouse of energy and has the resources to give you the strength, courage and faith to reach your dreams. That is the magic of believing. You must see yourself as successful and believe it for the sub-conscious mind to do its job.

1. The first step is to get a very clear picture what you want.
2. Next, write it down and refer to it often. Get the burning desire!!
3. Wait patiently for your sub-conscious mind to do its job.

Some questions to help you develop that clear desire.

What is your goal?
What will your life be like after you have achieved everything you want?
How does it feel?
Who is there with you?
What are your ideal surroundings like?
What can you smell?
What do you look like?
What are you wearing?

Start today to put those goals for success in concrete terms. Feel it, believe it. That is the magic of believing and it works!

Your Mind Can Enhance Your Beauty

By: Gloria Marie

single happy strong, the law of beauty, control your thoughts, advice for divorced women

The power of our thoughts have tremendous effects on our outer beauty. Our thoughts shape our faces. The Law for Beauty is the same as the Law of Attraction. The thoughts you put out will manifest on your face and body. The good news is that you can control this and your mind can enhance your beauty.

The health and beauty industry has sales of $55 billion annually. Most women in the United States spend $215 a year on cosmetics. To get ready in the morning, 25% of men and 21% of women spent over 30 minutes to get out the door. When going out at night 42% of women spend over 30 minutes getting ready. In 2013, in the United States, there were 15.1 million cosmetic procedures.

Obviously, we spend a lot of time and money on ourselves and our beauty. Why not spend some of this time learning to control your thoughts? It would parlay into spending less on beauty supplies, because your beauty would shine from within.

We have the age of the body and the age of the mind. Someone that has cheerful thoughts will have a cheerful face without the need for external enhancements. To preserve your beauty, have thoughts of health, vigor, and love. To become unattractive have thoughts of weakness, disease, and depression.

Thoughts can be like a magnet; you attract that which you think. If someone has a scowl on their face, that is an indication of their thoughts. Our face is an advertisement to our thoughts.

Expect to grow old, hunched over and decrypted and you will. Your wish will be granted.

How to Change:
1. Spend some time looking in the mirror and saying positive affirmations. I feel great. I love and approve of myself. I will send love to everyone I meet today.
2. Repeat similar affirmations in the evening.
3. Smile! Smile! Smile! Smile often and smile at everyone you encounter.
4. When negative thoughts arise, immediately shut the door on them.

With this practice, you will notice a difference in your facial features. Learn to use the power of your thoughts wisely.

The Way of Abundance

The way of abundance is through our words because they manifest into our lives. We are conditioned and brought up using phrases. Some of them are so ingrained into our sub-conscious mind that we may not even be aware of them. “Too good to be true.” “You have to work hard for your money.” “Money does not grow on trees.” “My luck won’t last.” “I am desperately looking for a new job.” Do any of these sound familiar?

Most of the time, we are not even aware of using phrases like these. The tape recordings in our minds are programmed for many years. But, once you become aware of your words and thoughts, you can begin to change them.

The examples I gave above will positively, absolutely manifest into your life, if you believe them and if you say them enough. Your wish is the Universes’ command. Instead of the above phrases, how about the following:

I am fully equipped for the Divine plan of my life; I am more than equal to the situation.

God works in unexpected and magic ways. I have perfect confidence in God.

I do not limit God by seeing limitation. With God all things are possible.

I am fearless in letting money go out, knowing God is my immediate and endless supply.

The above sentences help to put your confidence in God. With prayer and gratitude, you can change your beliefs and increase your faith. To believe is to have faith a thing is true. In the beginning a thing is belief, and if held to, it because faith. Believe and have faith in God’s invisible supply. Do not depend on only the visible supply of this Earth.

Recently, a friend of mine needed money for his son’s college tuition. For many months, he would complain how broke he was and that he had no money. He felt that he would only have the money for the tuition, if he could sell a property he owed. He was limiting his beliefs and the power and magic of God. Of course, the property did not sell and he was unable to pay the tuition. His wish was granted!

Start today to attach yourself to God. Let your wishes be granted in magical, unexpected ways.
