The Inner Critic in all of us.

This morning as I was drinking coffee and reading random blogs, I stumbled on SunEGrl's blog post about.... Mind-Body and Image...http://sunegrl72.blogspot.com/2009/01/mind-body-image.html
In her post, she really touched a chord with me, she wrote:  
"I think a big part of losing weight is a mental challenge and learning to love yourself no matter what your size."  
She got me thinking about what I am telling myself about my body image. I have been working diligently at trying to lose my divorce weight for almost two months now. My weight has been a roller coaster of ups and downs during these months.  I have noticed that I am being my own worst enemy- not my ex, as I have stated publicly and steadily! What a messed up A-HA fricken moment to wake up to! Thank you sunegrl- lol

I've been doing some self help techniques to help me feel better about my self. Have you ever used the stream of consciousness journal writing technique? My best friend turned me on to a few self-help books, one in which is called: The Artist's Way.

The book is a twelve week program, with three steps that once completed in the 12 weeks will change your life.... I'm on week one right now and I can tell you "The Morning Pages" technique is really getting me to see just how terribly mean I am to myself and spirit. 
Every morning you are forced to take the first hour of your waking time and write from your stream of consciousness, in a journal, by hand. It is not a writing assignment, but rather a truth telling assignment of what you are subconsciously and mentally telling YOURSELF. No need for proper grammar, good spelling, or penmanship.... What is encouraged is honesty, the mumbo-jumbo- mixed up-incoherent words, thoughts, and feelings that go through your head on a regular basis. You just write…write…write… every little thing that whispers in your ears, and screams at you in the silence of the morning.
I have noticed since taking on this lesson, that I am really down on myself. I treat myself like a piece of garbage, I am a broken record brainwashing myself to believe I am ugly, insignificant, useless, a wreak, fat, dumb, old, worthless and hopeless. 
 Now on to the positive part of these morning exercises- you go back and rewrite every negative thing you tell yourself, and turn it around into positive statements, thus- you are rewiring your stream of consciousness, and allowing your spirit to guide you, instead of letting all the horrible, agonizing, and uncontrollable personal events from your past guide you.
If you are interested in pursuing the artist within you… and when I say artist- I mean the artist of your life script from the present moment… please comment here, and let me know if you have a copy of this book, and how the lessons are going for you. It would be great to meet others on this personal journey.

I'm attracting my dream home.

I'm working on the NEWLY divorced me....vision board.

In creating your vision board, you need to be as specific as possible.

I have many pictures on it displaying:  my perfect weight and size, my passion for videography, and the ultimate video camera. I also included journalism and media awards, as I love to write and perform.

I even have a picture of myself speaking with my ex-husband, showing gratitude for all the lessons he taught me while being with him.

One day soon, he will hear me say, "I am getting recognition and PAID to do what I love. Everything I expressed to you about what I wanted in my life, and how I planned on helping my family, well I am now living my dream and couldn't be happier, thank you!"

Today, I found my dream home, and printed out the picture shown here, from:http://www.scottsdalefineproperties.com/article_details.php?articleID=6
to include on my vision board.

The palm trees you see in it, and that winding pool of cool water with the fountains-- oh my, yes I can totally see my family living it up and entertaining at our backyard pool party!

This picture, includes the perfect 80' degree Arizona weather, and my broker, Leslie is in it.
(Remember, you need to be as specific as possible when doing work with the Universe.) Make it as detailed and as real as possible.

If you too, are creating a vision/focus board to attract what you want in this life, here is a little help to get you thinking BIG! Go visit:Scottsdale Arizona weather
There, you will find a potpourri of high-end properties to help you visualize your family basking in the beautiful weather, living your dreams.

Shopping online at high-end realty sites for my dream home helps me to believe, like Cinderella, that "what ever you dream, will come true."
