Entering the flow of well-being is all about getting your thoughts out of the way. The only thing that prevents you from having everything you want and feeling as good as you deserve is negative thought.
Getting out of the way involves two steps, but they're really two sides of the same coin–you can't have one without the other.
A huge (if not only) source of negative thought is a lack of love for yourself. To stop negative thoughts, you must come to know your inherent perfection.
Stop caring about what others think. Do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. Embrace your uniqueness. To truly love yourself, you must understand your individuality as well as your infinite nature. You have your individual perspective to contribute your own unique expansion to the universe. That is your value as an individual. Yet, you are one with everything else. We are all the same source energy. We are all part of the whole.
As individual persons, we are the spines on a koosh ball. It doesn't matter what the spine looks like or does, only that it's there. The koosh ball is source energy. God. We are one and the same. We all have access to the same infinite intelligence, because we are infinite intelligence.
You cannot love God in entirety without first loving yourself in entirety. You cannot feel pure love for that which surrounds you until you feel pure love for yourself. You cannot be God without loving yourself as the God you already are.
2. Stop ALL negative thoughts
The only things preventing the flow are your beliefs. And beliefs are just thoughts you think a lot. Any time you have a negative thought, let it go. You don't need your negative thoughts. They do not define you. They do not protect you nor keep you safe. Negative thoughts feel comfortable, but only because you're used to them. Positive thoughts will become more comfortable over time. Give yourself permission to let those negative thoughts go. You don't need them anymore.
When you're able to let negative thoughts go, you'll stop blocking the stream. You don't have to change anything about yourself; just think a different thought. The universe will take care of everything. That thing that's bothering you? You can let it go now. Picture yourself dropping it and walking away. It's already gone.
