What I've been up to?? My Self Development Journey

Helurr there. I know you all are like she's always on a new discovery of something. If not hair then self discovery. Which in my opinion there is nothing wrong with either. So lately I have been feeling like something was missing in my life. I have always believed that I am destined to do more. And this is with everything. I am in school now because I was told by God to do so. But every now and then I feel like I should be doing more. Like having a career in the field that I am supposed to be in. What I am in the process of learning now is that nothing is a complete waste of time. There is a reason for everything. Where ever you are right now is where you need to be, no matter how much you hate it. Believe it or not that is getting you where you need to be.

So that's where I was stuck at in my life. I don't necessarily need to know what's in store, but I needed to change what I was doing. Because obviously what ever I was doing wasn't enough. And that was another thing I was dealing with, I was praying a lot. So I felt like by looking for another way, outside of God, to help me was cheating. Crazy right. But everyone I'm sure goes through this at some point or another in their lives. When you're trying something new that is not seen as"Godly" then you shouldn't do it. Here is how I got out of this feeling. God sends people to us in many forms, whether it is a book, or a seminar they here to help us. There is always a reason that we are where we are at every moment. So who not but God could that right!? He put me in the right position to see a video to reawaken my desire. A BURNING DESIRE to be more than I am today.

As I am questioning all of these things I came across a video by Dulce Candy about self help books she's been reading. I've always read books like how-to or trying to find yourself. But I stopped because I felt they weren't working. Which now I know the reason they weren't working. I wasn't really applying the techniques everyday as I had learned to do. So here I am watching her vid on the book haul she made. And I am like really. Yes this is what I needed. Like a jump on things. That one video got the ball rolling for me to watch and read all of these things about the law of attraction and manifestation. I guess most people would consider me an artsy type of person. A free sprinted butterfly if you will. Since doing more research on self development these key words kept popping up (and continues to pop up): manifestation, desire, energy, gratitude, awareness, subconscious vs unconscious, focus, visualization, abundance, and attraction.

I have found so much information on everything above. Esp the law of attraction. I am also reading 3 books (two audio and 1 pdf): Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill, Miracles now by Gabrielle Bernstein, and Creative Visualiztion by Shakti Gawain. All of these books tie into what I was looking for. And although I am not completely finished with them I can definitely say they are great for self development. I also recommend watching videos on youtube esp Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Sammy Davis has really great videos. Or google the keys words from above. So far my has changed completely and I have noticed a different attitude in the way I think now versus the way I used to think. I am also getting back into meditation and Yoga.

The next few posts will be reviews and finds of the books I am reading/listening to. I can't wait to share my findings.
