The First Magic Mind Switch - "Clean Out the Clutter"
Free your mind from negative clutter and create more space for a powerful positive mind.
Negative mind clutter takes up a lot of space. This clutter consists of things like worry, fear, day dreaming, hurt, anger, resentment, insecurity, low self image, regret, and all sorts of unproductive things. It's like a seriously de-fragmented computer hard drive, slowing things down and preventing good programs from working at all.
Getting rid of negative mind clutter is essential for building your positive mind. Too often we ignore negative thoughts and just push them to the back of our minds hoping they'll go away. Unfortunately, negative mind clutter won't go away until you clean it out. As long as clutter is floating around in your head it's causing subtle damage to your living.
If you allow negative clutter to remain unchecked, almost no amount of positive input can displace it for long. Negative thoughts often overpower positive thoughts in hand to hand combat.
So what's the solution? Complete and total elimination. You need to wipe out the enemy and start clean. Only a mind that's free and clear of negativity can take full advantage of positive input. Starting fresh each day with a clear mind and feeding it with positive input will help you to operate at peak performance. The result is a positively charged mind that attracts phenomenal results.
Turn on your first positive mind switch by writing out a "What's Bugging Me Now" list. In order for this switch to work you MUST write your list down on paper.
The act of writing it out is the very process for getting clutter out of your head, freeing you from it's damaging affects. Until you write it out on paper the clutter remains in your head shuffling around from place to place, constantly resurfacing. Here's what you do...
Take out as much paper as you need and on the top of the fist page write the following phrase. "What's Bugging Me Now?". Then simply write out everything that's on your mind.
Write about your worries, fears, anger, hurt feelings, regrets, anything that comes to mind. Write and write until you cant think of anything else. After you write about something that's on your mind, write down why it bothers you. Do you feel neglected, resent getting older, want to be appreciated, are you hurt, are you angry because things aren't going as planned, are you worried about the future, are you afraid? Just dig deep enough to find out what's bugging you and why it bugs you.
Next ask yourself, "what can I do about it?". You can always do something positive about it. You can accept the things you can not change, you can pray for those who hurt you, you can strive to do better going forward, you can find someone less fortunate than you are and help them, you can turn it over to the care of your Higher Power, and trust Him to work it out for your good. You can always do something positive about the things that bother you.
Granted, for some of you this first list may resemble a book! That's good! That just means you have a lot of clutter to remove. All the more reason you must do this list. You will quickly realize that subsequent lists become quite small and manageable.
The idea here is to get negative thinking out of your head and out into the open where you can see it for what it is, "the worst use of your mind, time, and energy". At the end of your list write the following words. "I turn all these things over to the care of the Highest Power in the Universe to take care of, from this moment on I let go of all these negative forces and trust all things will be worked out for my best possible good".
Do this list at the beginning of each day in order to give yourself the best possible start. If you really want to increase your results, do a second list right before you go to bed. This will put you in the optimal mindset for a good night sleep. Practice using this switch for the next seven days. Notice how it changes you. Notice how it makes you feel? Sense the freedom that comes from this switch.
Throughout the week strive to avoid things that will add clutter to your mind. Don't watch or listen to negative, violent, or hateful programs. Avoid watching or listening to the news, as the focus is often disturbing. Learn to accept the fact that you can't change world events, you can only change yourself. However, changing yourself will change your world and many of the circumstances that directly affect you. Spend as little time as possible around negative, complaining people. Strive not to do things that would violate your conscience. As the old saying goes, garbage in garbage out. Try to keep your mind clean and sharp.
Constantly feed your mind with positive books, tapes, and conversations in order to stay at peak performance. You'll be proud of yourself. If you slip back into an old pattern, write out another list as soon as you can. Don't let negative thinking hang around long enough to do any damage.
You'll be delighted with the pleasure that comes from the proper maintenance of your valuable mind.
Remember to practice this powerful positive mind switch daily to enjoy attracting positive opportunities into your life. Enjoy!

The Second Magic Mind Switch - "Gratitude Produces an Optimal Attitude".
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
Melody Beattie - Author
It is only when we become envious of what we don't have that we become unhappy. We often fail to realize that the majority of people in the world live from birth to death in abject poverty. These masses often live without the basic food, clothing, housing, education, and transportation we take for granted. Even the poorest among the industrialized countries are wealthy in comparison.
It's important for our well-being and happiness to be thankful for what we do have. In gratitude our lives are at peace, without it we become dissatisfied even with abundance all around us.
Turn on the second switch by writing a list of everything you have to be grateful for and continue to add to it as you think of new things.
Your list can include food, clothing, protection, sun shine, rain, eyes to see, ears to hear, knowledge, experience, health, family, home, job, car, indoor plumbing, toilet paper, and so on. Write down anything you wouldn't care to be without, everything you can think of. Never focus on what others have that you don't, it serves no good purpose. Your goal is to focus on what you do have no matter how much or how little for now.
When you think you're done review your list. Size doesn't matter because you'll be adding to it over the next week.
As you review your list remember to think of all the people around the world that have less than you do. Think of the starving and homeless, the terminally ill, those ruled by dictators, without freedom of choice or will. Think of the majority of human kind in China, Africa, and India, often without basic necessities. Be thankful you are not one of the majority of human beings living from birth to death trapped in terrible circumstances.
Look at your list of things to be grateful for and give thanks for what you've been blessed with. See how it changes your outlook.
Continue to add to the list throughout the week as you begin to find more things to be grateful for. Sense how this switch makes you feel. How does it change your perspective on life?
When you combine this powerful mind switch of gratitude with the first mind switch of cleaning out mental clutter, you begin to transform yourself and your life into something wonderful!
Remember to use these first 2 magic mind switches daily to enjoy attracting positive opportunities into your life. Just these first 2 switches, practiced daily, will make a huge positive change in your life!
