Don't Complain and Don't Explain

While listening to Wayne Dyer this week, he reminded me of a scripture in Job which tells us how to make our dreams come true. It says, "For God does speak - now one way, now another - though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn them from wrong doing and keep them from pride."

When God gives us a vision, we must make that vision our priority. We must have tunnel vision each and every day, and we must treat our vision like 'Super Glue' and never allow anyone or anything to distract you from the vision that God has placed in your heart.

Don't allow anyone to tell you what's possible or isn't possible for you. This really does work. It's called faith. Scripture says it's "Calling those things that be not as if they were."

When you go to bed, remember that scripture. Our subconscious mind is most conscious when we are asleep. It's so important that we take the last few minutes of our day to visualize what we want in our lives. We must prepare ourselves for having our instructions sealed for the night.

Usually, we use our final minutes to review circumstances in our lives that we don't like, we think about the people who hurt our feelings, and situations that we wished weren't taking place. We fill our minds with all of that junk before we drift off to sleep.

Scripture reminds us that our mind is listening to what it is we want to attract. When we fill our minds with junk, we're going to get it! Our mind is open to suggestion. Whether the thoughts are good or bad, our mind will give us exactly what we continue to think about.

When we program our subconscious mind to go over all of those things that we don't want to happen - the possible loss of a job and the terrible economy - we hurt ourselves.

Instead, program your mind to say: "I am well; I am God's child; "I am content; "I am blessed." Always be grateful and never unappreciative.

Let's say for example, someone gave you money to go out and buy exactly what you wanted for your home, yet you purchased items that you didn't want. Then, you wonder why your house is filled with stuff that you don't want - that's what happens when we continue to think negatively.

So, during the last five minutes, just before you fall off to sleep, even if you don't believe it yet, let go of the negativity, and begin thinking about what you want as if it already exist!

Get rid of the junk! Get rid of the negative comments that individuals have hurled at you over the years. Let all of the negativity go.

You are the creator of your future. Ask yourself, "How would I feel if the vision God has given me were to come true?" Whether it's about losing weight, or about unhealthy habits, about eating too much: ignore all of that, and say: "I am healthy; I am well; I am happy, wealthy and wise."

Call those things that are not as if they were. Remember, if it doesn't feel natural, it's not going to work. You've got to be able to see, feel and believe yourself already in possession of it. However, you must be realistic. What God has for you is for you, but some things are not for you. God knows best.

As long as you are having any thoughts of condemnation or criticism toward any of God's children, you are being judgmental, and it will block your blessings. Let go of the judgment, condemnation, and criticism then your dreams will become a reality. We cannot think negatively about any of God's children when we want our dreams to come true.
