If you knew for absolute certainty that your thoughts DID create the life you live how would you think differently?
Our thoughts are so incredibly powerful be mindful of how y
ou use them
Growing up my mum would always recite Henry Fords quote “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right”
How many times have you talked yourself into being poorly?
Or reminding yourself that you can’t do something only to be proven right.
It’s so easy to allow negative thoughts to lead the way.
STOP for one second
You have a choice - YOU choose your thoughts
It’s easier said than done I hear you yell
Here are two really quick tips to help guide you out of a negative thought pattern.
Tip one - Question your thoughts
When you feel you can’t move away from the I can’t, I’ll fail, I’m scared, crowd, I invite you to pick up a pen and paper and write down the negative thought. NOW challenge that thought.
Is it fact? What can I do about it? What’s the opposite of this thought?
When you challenge your negative thought you regain your personal power, you're telling yourself that you don’
t believe that thought.
For example, you’ve got a cold and your lying in bed reminding yourself every 5 minutes how rubbish you’re feeling
Thought: I feel poorly
What can I do about it: Rest, soothing bath, drink plenty of fluids, have a warming, nourishing soup, do all the easy things on my to-do list, read a book
What’s the opposite thought: I am healthy
Suddenly you’ll feel brighter (the symptoms may not have disappeared but you’re back in the driver's seat)
You’re back in control
Tip 2 - Take an instant vacation
Sit comfortably, somewhere quiet, light your favourite smelling candle or and this works wonders, dig out your favourite smelling suncream and rub it into your chest and arms
Inhale and exhale slowly and take yourself to your favourite destination the place you feel most relaxed and happy, visualise everything the sights sounds smells, the people you meet
Stay here for as long as you can
When you come out write everything you saw down - how do you feel?
Being in awareness of your thoughts is beautifully freeing, it creates a calm and uncluttered mind, it brings clarity which allows motivations and inspiration to work together in perfect harmony.
