Fact: the Universe is wildly abundant.
I don't know about you, but I go through times where I'm down right confused about what the Universe has in store for me. I spend my time and energy fumbling for answers, whining and complaining, when really I should shut up and notice the gifts I'm given each and every day.
Upon recommendation from my yoga cowgirl friend Kathy Judd, I started reading Pam Grout's book E-Squared: Nine Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality. The concepts of the book are not new, but she does a good job of making them tangible. In fact, the idea that your thoughts create your reality can be found in...wait for it...The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Yep, that's right. Master Patanjali spoke of these same concepts thousands of years ago. In truth, these ideas appeared in sacred texts way before Master Patanjali wrote them down. Pam Grout's version is a modern take on the power of your thoughts with valuable energy exercises you can do to see the results for yourself. Give it a try and you'll be a believer before you get through the first chapter.
Basic premise: Ask and ye shall receive.
Basic roadblock: We don't believe, so we don't receive.
Basic fix: Be receptive and trust that everything is perfect.
