Healthy and positive thoughts help us make and keep our friends as well create harmony in our lives.

Keep your attention focused on something positive this holiday season and good things will begin to happen.

Your experiences in life mirror your belief system back to you.  So in order to change your experiences you must change your beliefs.

How can we accomplish this for the holiday season?  We can accomplish this by adjusting or changing the beliefs that do not serve us well.

Beliefs are:
Thoughts you accept as true become your beliefs.  So let us incorporate the following beliefs into our lives:

  • The holidays are going to be full of togetherness and joy this year.
  • The children are going to be pleasant and cooperative this holiday season.
  • Our marriage is going to be supportive and joyful this holiday season.
  • We will be comfortable and have plenty in the area of money this holiday season.
  • We are going to enjoy our families and the holidays this year and always.

What beliefs are creating your experience?

Homework assignment.  Before the Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas and New Year’s holidays, write down three thoughts that you have.  Next write down three beliefs you have.  Be thoughtful about this assignment and notice them.  Now write down three thoughts you want to have or you want to continue to have.  Say them everyday and BELIEVE them, for now you know you have the power to think whatever you choose and it will matter in your life since our thoughts create our life experiences.  Tell your children your new positive thoughts.  You are their teachers.  We want to be the best teachers in the world for our children, since they are our jewels, and we must keep them safe and in a good place.  We must teach them hope and we must teach them that they have the power to create their lives.

Enjoy your new thoughts and beliefs this holiday season and let us see what comes of this new lesson. 

Have healthy, joyful and safe holidays this year.
