Recipe For Life, thoughts are things

An Interesting Thing About Recipes

This thought hit me this morning.

As a person who has a lot of cookbooks, I was thinking how I get inspired by them but you end up going back to the same recipes or go-to foods more often than not.

And then it hit me! This is like our thoughts and habits. Our brains work in patterns, repetition, and it always likes the familiar. This is why it is so easy to run trains of thoughts that may or may not serve us.

One thought attracts another thought and once you start you are on a roll. So thoughts are like recipes. We use the same ingredients (familiar thoughts) and we run our programs (the recipes.)

Now the question becomes is your thought recipe serving you or disempowering you? Are you running and making good recipes or are they self destructive recipes, kind of like unhealthy food? 🙂

So if you catch yourself using thought patterns that are not for your highest good, the secret is to disrupt the brain pattern and switch to a new recipe. One technique that I use is my very own quote “I control my thoughts, they don’t control me”. I have developed a habit of catching my thoughts and then switching them. The more you do it the easiest it gets. These new thoughts start to become your go-to recipes… your new recipes. 🙂

And the good news is just like when you find or develop a new recipe you love, you love it! Same with thought recipes, once you start using thought patterns that are good for you, it feels great and you want to use them more! Woo hoo!

Happy Recipe Creation!

Mel Robbins, thoughts are things

Reset Your Mindset

Want to change your life for the better immediately? There is a way to do this that makes perfect sense and ties in with the science of the brain.

This morning I listened twice to a Youtube video by Mel Robbins that is AMAZING. It’s a keeper for sure! I listened the first time just to listen, and the second time I took copious notes because I’m all about studying and applying things in my life that are going to make things run smoother and make me happier. Oh ya, bring on the JOY for me!

I also, listen and take notes for the students that I teach through my Infinite Possibilities workshops and the sharing I do via blogging like this and through my social media channels.

I WANT to make a difference in the world and to most of all EMPOWER people to have better lives by controlling their thoughts and leveraging their beliefs. My favorite quote by me is “I control my thoughts, they don’t control me!” And this quote ties in perfectly with the information in this video. I will share the link at the end of this blog post so you can watch it too and start changing for the better immediately!

❤ ❤ ❤

I highly recommend it

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mel talks about how there are two modes we use with our thinking: Default or Autopilot and my favorite which is Deliberate Thinking! Deliberate thinking is what we want to master. We need to basically decode and change the neuro pathways and programs that we have created through the programming of our past. This programming often comes from others and then we attach to it and rethink it over and over again and it is now our default program. But the good news is we can change these programs or ways of thinking and switch to deliberate thinking!

I am not going to say anymore, I will just recommend that you watch this 10 minute video and use it to change your life for the better starting RIGHT NOW!!! I will be saving this video for future use for myself and anyone who I can help by sharing it with them.

I’d love to hear your thoughts too!

Infinite Possibilites, Intention, The Secret

Maggie’s Pledge for Infinite Possibilities in Your Life


This is a pledge that I recently wrote for the students in my Infinite Possibilities classes which are all about the art of living your dreams and the art of changing your life. I thought it was worth sharing for everyone in my realm to enJOY if it resonated with them.

I hope that you find it beneficial and that these affirmations in the form of pledging, helps YOU to access the art of living and creating your life with deliberate intention and that your life becomes bigger and better than your wildest of dreams! 🙂

Infinite Possibilites, Law of Attraction, manifesting, Visualization

Remember When…..

So here I am on a Sunday morning preparing for my Week 2, Infinite Possibilities class tomorrow night. The class is on beliefs but I was reflecting on the content from last week where we covered that ‘thoughts are things’ and we started to implement visualization or ‘adult daydreaming’ as I like to call it. 🙂

I think we can all relate to how easy it was to daydream when we were children. It is interesting to see that it can be very difficult for many adults to start this process again. After many years of running programs in our minds about how we think life is or should be, and what we expect is what we get, we somehow lose that childlike wonder.

I found this note from Mike Dooley, who writes “The Notes from The Universe” and thought it was perfect…

Remember when as a child,

just the site of the swing set, or a pony, or a Hula-Hoop would get your heart racing and your imagination somersaulting? And without even thinking in words you felt that surely the world revolved around you, that you were the most blessed creature ever to live, and that having fun was all that really mattered?

Well I still wonder how you knew so much, at such a tender age.

Tallyho,

The Universe

P.S. To me, at times it’s as if there is only you. Actually… all the time.

*******************************************

I hope you enJOYed this note from the Universe as much as I did today and happy adult daydreaming! Woot Woot!!!
