Everyone wants to have or do different things, but nobody is willing to become a different person. Yet often, becoming someone different is essential in order to experience our dreams. You know what who you are is already attracting. You can see it in your life. That's your current vibration - who you currently are. And that will bring more of the same. Because that's the law: vibration precedes reality. So if you want to experience something else, you're going to have to change who you are. Of course, your true Self, can never be changed, I'm simply talking about the "you" that is your perspective.
There are many ways to change yourself.
Action...repetitive action, habits, etc will over time change you.
New thoughts, new feelings, new focus, new perspectives..can change you.
Affirmations can change you. But that is up to you, depending on how you use them; they're simply a tool for you to use.
Letting go of old beliefs OR creating new ones will change you.
Changing your identity, will change you.
Very good post Astro!! Yes Vibration precedes reality
One thing I will mention here is that you are not becoming a different person. I've had many healing clients who had a ton of fear around that idea, of healing themselves and becoming someone else.
The idea is to understand that you are still going to be you, just a better version of you. That better version has less fear and more allowing than the current version. That better version has let go of whatever didn't work and didn't feel good, so that now the better version does what feels the best and does work for you. =)
Yes, I addressed that in my original post when I said that the real self never changes.
To clarify: who we really are, Awareness, never changes. But who we are not - aka our identities, is always changing. The question is: if you radically change your personality are you the same person? Having experienced multiple different personalities, I'm inclined to say no. However the idea of being your best self is helpful.
As Louise Hay says, you don't necessarily need to know how to change, you just need to be WILLING to change. The Universe and your inner being will take care of the rest.
Interesting to see an old post of mine bumped. But a good reminder for myself! This is always fresh and useful.
I have used Affirmations to great success for years and years....even though I have not always acknowledged it!
