ACT AS IF EVERYTHING YOU DESIRE IS ALREADY HERE.
TREAT YOURSELF AS IF YOU ALREADY ARE WHO YOU’D LIKE TO BECOME.
~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Recently, I’ve experienced waves of overwhelming discontent with myself & my life. A big jumble of cloudy confusion & scattered dissatisfaction. There is such a strong pull toward fulfillment, purpose, truth, self-empowerment & self-love. Such a strong yearning to expand & be my highest self. But discouragement & uncertainty of how to do that & be that.
I felt like I needed to get crystal clear, straight forward & honest about exactly what I want & who I want to be. I felt like I needed to step up, take control & empower myself to create what I want for myself. I am alive, here on this earth to live life fully & to be myself fully & freely, so how can I do just that? How can I free myself of any blocks, any bondages, any self-imposed limits, anything holding me down? How can I create myself & create my own life?
So I sat down & started writing out a list. At the top of the page it said,
What do you WANT? WHO do you want to BE?
TREAT YOURSELF AS IF YOU ALREADY ARE WHO YOU’D LIKE TO BECOME….
And then the list began. A list of whatever came to me, whatever visions I saw in my life situation, my personality, my relationships, my actions, my work, my service, my hobbies, my creativity, my love, my joy, my projects, my abilities, my finances, my body, my mind, anything & everything. All of it written in present tense. “I am this, I am that. I’m so happy & grateful now that __________.” Specific & down to the point. Clear image & feeling in mind & heart.
After I finished my list, I was amazed at how I immediately felt more confident, powerful, creative, inspired & hopeful. Whether it makes sense in the limited mind or not, I keep looking back to the list to remember to treat myself as if I am already that, or as if I already have that, or as if my life is already like that. It is the beginning of manifesting those things & being who I am meant to be in my full potential. Faking it to make it. ;)
And I am seeing things happen & change in my life, things I wrote down on the list. I am seeing my power, truth, love & confidence come through in my way of being, my personality, my relationships. I’m beginning to see changes & shifts in my life situation, my work, my mind & body. I’m beginning to see shifts in my perception of the world & of myself.
If I start to notice myself reverting back to old patterns that stunt growth & keep me held down, I remind myself of the list. I treat myself & act as if I am already who I’d like to become. I am beyond my old limits. I am already whole. Then I start to feel & see the shift. This is how I free myself. This is how I take the lead in my own life & create with power that is beyond what the limited mind can comprehend.
We are all moving forward. We are all expanding. We are all meant to be powerful creators & leaders of our own lives.
Get clear about what you want & who you want to BE. Start now. Life is NOW. Don’t be stuck & imprisoned by the past & all it’s old limits. Remember who you are, know your value & self-worth. Know that you deserve everything that you want & everything you want to BE in this life. Treat yourself as if you are already whole, as if you already have it all. Fake it ’til you make it. Move fearlessly into the unknown & let it become known. Let it flow, let it happen.
