Your "thinking" or "self talk" enters a creative YES field one hundred percent of the time whether you know it or not. We live in a creative universe and the creative field of the Universe doesn't know a joke from a prayer, It just says YES. You may already know this but let's talk about it again.
If we can just remember that with every thought we have there is a staff of servants ready, willing, and able, to carry that thought out, we would choose our thoughts more carefully, wouldn't we? When we say to ourselves "Oh God, I can't take this anymore", the Universe says "OK!" The Universe then makes sure you cannot take that anymore. It can't change anything for you because you have not asked that anything be changed. If you say "Oh God, I am not going to take this anymore" and then ask "What can I do to change it?", the Universe is happy to show you. Doors will be opened and changes will come, as fast as YOU LET THEM.
