Seven Excuses and Correcting Affirmations from Excuses Begone!

If you attempt to figure out how your Source of being (God) thinks, the first thing you need to do is get rid of the ego. When you observe how creation takes place, you see that Source energy is all about giving, while your ego is all about getting. So aligning with Source energy means taking the focus off of “What’s in it for me?” and shifting to “How may I serve?”

When you say “gimme, gimme, gimme” to the universe, it uses the Law of Attraction to say, “gimme, gimme, gimme” to you. You subsequently feel pressured, put-upon, and out of sorts because so many demands are being made of you. It is out of this vortex that you create excuses that only serve to keep you stuck and striving to meet the ego’s demands: “I’m not strong enough…I don’t deserve it…I don’t have the energy…I’m scared…It’s too big…” and on and on. Shift to a new alignment now, one that puts you in rapport with the creative universal mind.

You can begin by thinking like God, and follow up by acting like God. Take the focus off of gimme, gimme, gimme and place it on “How may I serve? What may I offer? How can I help?” When you do, the universe will respond similarly, asking, “How may I serve you? What may I offer you? How can I help you?”
