Create Affirmations
Create affirmations that match up with your revised worldview, such as:
  • The assistance I need is on its way.
  • The right people are going to show up.
  • All things are possible when I decide to have faith.
  • I banish all doubt.
Instead of looking for what's wrong with the world, begin to look for what's right. When you lose faith or when something happens to you that just shakes it a bit, begin to ask yourself, "What is the lesson here?" Usually, after enough time passes, you can look back and say, "Oh, now I get it." For example, most alcoholics can look back on the years they were drinking and say, "Now I know why I had to go through that to get to this place." And most breakups help you become a better person in your next relationship.

When you lose everything, a time will come when you realize why you had to have that experience. Try to bring that realization into the present moment. Ask: "What is the lesson in this for me now? How is this going to help me become a person who is going to fulfill my own destiny?"
