If you are having trouble letting go of past hurt and pain and it keeps knocking at your door, perhaps it’s time to create a new stronger version of you. And it’s not as hard as you may think. It’s just a matter of harnessing imagination with intention, and focusing on it ~ creating an image in your mind of the new stronger you, engaging with it, feeling it, and holding it every day as often as possible.
But don’t make it hard work. Make sure you feel good when you are doing it. Play with it ~ create anticipation, fun and joy. What fabulous outfit are you wearing, what fun thing are you doing, how passionate do you feel, how vibrant are the people around you? Imagine it with intention, feel it delicious anticipation, and be it with heavenly joy. And then hold it for as long as you can.
For when you feel good and make it fun, your whole being will begin to resonate with the harmony and joy of it, and the Universe will line up more and more matching joy, and you will move closer to your vision.
The new you will become stronger and stronger. Everything you learn will be added to the new you ~ every time your self esteem bursts through with joy, every time you love yourself a little more and every time you choose to feel good it will be added to the new you until one day, the new you will be stronger and more powerful than what was before. The attachment to the past will be gone, replaced by something so much better. And then it will be easy to say, “That was then, and this is now”.
