MY CREATIVE WORKSHOP


MY CREATIVE WORKSHOP

I like being here, for I recognize the value and power of this time. I feel very good as I am here. And as I see myself, I see myself as a sort of total package, one that I know is of my own creating, and certainly one of my choosing. I’m full of energy, tireless, really, moving through life experience with no resistance. I see myself gliding about in this picture of self, moving in and out of my car, in and out of buildings, in and out of rooms, in and out of conversations, and in and out of life experiences. I am flowing effortlessly, comfortably, and happily.
I see myself attracting only those who are in harmony with my current intent. And I’m becoming more aware of what I desire. When I get into my vehicle and I’m moving to a place, I see myself arriving at that place healthy, refreshed, and on time, and prepared for whatever it is that I’m about to do there. I see myself dressed to perfection in the manner I choose.
And it’s nice to know that it does not matter what others are doing, or what others are thinking about what I’m doing. What IS important is that I’m pleased with me. And as I see myself in this picture of self, I certainly am.
I recognize that I’m unlimited in all facets of my life. I have an unlimited bank account. I am experiencing no financial limitations. I’m making all my decisions based upon whether I want the experience or not, not based upon whether I can afford it.  I know that I’m a magnet attracting whatever level of prosperity, health, or relationship I choose.
I choose absolute and continuing abundance, for I understand that there is no limit to the wealth in the universe, and that by my attracting abundance to me, I’m not limiting another. There’s enough for everyone. It’s not necessarily about putting a big stash away. For whatever I want or need, I can easily bring into my experience. There’s an unlimited supply of money and prosperity of all kinds available to me.
I see myself surrounded by others who, like me, desire growth, who are drawn to me by my willingness to allow them to be, do, or have whatever they’re wanting. I see myself interacting with others -- talking, laughing, and enjoying that which in perfect in them while they’re enjoying that which is perfect in me. We’re appreciating each other. No one is criticizing or noticing unwanted things.
I see myself in perfect health, in absolute prosperity, appreciating this physical life experience, which I wanted so very much as I decided to be this physical Being
It’s glorious to be here, making decisions with my physical brain but accessing the power of the Universe through the power of the LAW OF ATTRACTION. And it’s from this marvelous state of being that I now attract more of the same. It’s good. It’s fun, I like it very much.
And now, my work for this day is done. I will leave my CREATIVE WORKSHOP and I’ll set out, for the remainder of this day, looking for more things that I like, My work is done for today.
