InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

June 11, 2024

The focus for today is:

I change my focus and create a new
and empowering energy flow.

Today's inspiration was written by Michelle Madrid:

There’s a coaching mantra that I adhere to in my life and in my work. It’s the same mantra that I use to awaken my coaching clients to the importance of focus: Where focus goes, energy flows. Our focus creates our experience; it shapes our reality.

This mantra also links back to Bruce Lipton’s theory in his book The Biology of Belief. There is a connection between mind and matter! What we hold in our mind — along with the thoughts and beliefs we focus on — impacts the quality of our health and our emotions and our ability to thrive.

 I didn’t know, for a very long time, that I could change my focus and create a new and empowering energy flow. You possess the same ability.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Unwanted and Unwelcomed? Where Focus Goes, Energy Flows
     Written by Michelle Madrid.

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of consciously choosing your focus (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
It is so easy for us to focus on "doom and gloom" scenarios with our job, our relationship, our health, our finances, etc. etc. I suppose that comes from our upbringing... but the bottom line is that it denotes a lack of trust in the Universe, in Spirit, in our lives, in our Self. So when you find yourself focusing on something other than what you truly desire, change your focus. Affirm one of many sayings that will help re-center you in the wonderful possibilities available to you. One of my current favorite affirmations is: "I am safe. I am protected. I am well-taken care of." 

Our focus for today: I change my focus and create a new and empowering energy flow.
