ALM 37: What’s Your Story?

What’s your story?  Are you conscious of the story you tell yourself?  Chances are you are telling each person you meet this same story over and over again, and it just might be a negative story.  Does this sound like you?  I’m broke.  I hate my job.  What you’re essentially saying is that you’re a victim.  Perhaps these limiting beliefs have become ingrained in your mind.  If so, you are putting this negativity out into the world and the universe is responding to your vibration by giving it back to you ten-fold.

So how do we shift the story?


Some thoughts are so ingrained, we’re not consciously aware of what we’re speaking into existence.  Often times we desire one thing, but the story we tell is the quite the opposite of our desire.  First you need to get clear about what it is that you want.  Write down what you want in specifics and create incantations for yourself.


A mantra is something you say to self over and over and is similar to an incantation.  Say it to yourself several times throughout the day to keep your thoughts in check.  For example, my new mantra is “Thank God I’m rich.”  Speaking this mantra helps to put me into a state of gratitude and wipes away the negativity.


In addition to adopting a mantra, you can build your gratitude by following a few other steps.  Take time each evening to write down three things for which you are grateful or three magical moments that occurred during your day.  Consider listening to peaceful music or soothing nature sounds to help you ease the transition into a peaceful state.  Give thanks and see things as though they have already manifested for you.  When you embrace a state of gratitude, your negative outlook shifts to a positive one.

Following these steps will help you become aware of your limiting thoughts and beliefs and will assist you in replacing your old story with a new, more empowering one.  Adopt an “I AM” statement that embodies your new story.
