Believe me when I tell you that the universe pays attention when you speak. Many moons ago I wished for a tall, good looking man who dressed up nice and would shower me with flowers; I have a serious weakness for them it’s insane. I used to tell my colleagues almost everyday how my handsome prince would come for me and guess what, months down the line I was in a relationship with a guy who fit those specifications to a tee. Like how was that even possible?
I remember this one time I tagged along when my friend when she was going to court. I was heavily pregnant at the time and when I saw the women standing in line for Child Maintenance issues I said; “One day I will be standing in line too given the drama we are always going through with the father of my child”. Again I tell you, the universe pays attention, I was in that exact same line 5 years later going through the most. I spoke this into existence and I don’t even know why I was surprised when it actually happened.
Thankfully, there are some pretty good things that have happened. The one time I was going through pictures on the internet and wishing for a holiday. Something about the Christmas holiday makes me feel like travelling. I had my eyes on Cape Town and told myself it was going to happen and it did! My sister is the best for making it happen and you should find yourself a sister just like her!
From my experience when it comes to self talk, the more positive things you say to yourself the better your experience outcomes. When I started my fitness journey I was outspoken; most people didn’t understand how a “big” woman could have so much self love but they were never ready for the extra confidence that would come once I lost the weight. I used to go for my runs without music just to have a chance to speak to myself and encourage myself throughout the run. I would tell myself things like:
- You’ve got this, just one more kilometer to go
- Wait till you do your weigh in tomorrow and see how much work you have put in
- They are not ready for the after run photo I am going to post on Instagram
- Who would have thought I would ever run 10K
- The way I am smashing that cellulite on my thighs right now though
- Girl you are on fire did you hear that pace on the voice over!
You see, all that self talk got me to push myself and my body to the limit. Imagine if I had been telling myself negative things. This body would have never come to life, it’s a pity I can’t show it to you, it’s still illegal to walk around naked this part of the world.
I have a whole list of other positive things that I have asked the universe to grant me after I realised she actually pays attention. No more random negative thoughts because I certainly don’t want to end up in situations I will dearly regret. Lately I ask for good health, success, financial security, a whole Land Rover Discovery (in red of course), to be the first Nike Woman in Zimbabwe and a rich husband. Speak things into existence people!!
In whatever you do, be good to yourself. Speak of all the beautiful things about yourself and those around you and the universe will also respond positively.
What are some of the things you speak into existence? Have any of them come to life, care to share?
