My brain has been doing 360’s the past year. I am forced to really look at what thoughts are going through my head, acknowledge the emotion and just let it be and let it sit and simmer and then let it dissipate. The notion of suppressing emotions is familiar and now I realize it leads to stress and not so good feelings that bubble up eventually so you might as well get them out when they come the first time. I also realize that we all have a very powerful tool. Our monkey minds can be tamed and trained into thought that can serve the self in a healthy way. We often think of money and status and size and gaining respect as external things that need to be achieved to have or feel powerful. WE often look externally as well for approval and confidence and self worth. All we really have to do is tap into our minds and create our own scenarios and that can be reality. Power rests within our thoughts. The idea is to stop being reactive and start being a creator. Truth.
It’s crazy how you can have a thought and feel one way then instantly change your thought or talk to someone that sheds light on a different thought and your bad feelings can fade away. I guess it ’s like exercise, the more you do it the better trained your mind will get. I think I understand the concept of mind, body, soul better too. Sheepishly, I admit I am just now fully understanding this concept better. I have been in the health and fitness industry for years…. I guess you can say we are always learning.
Think Better. Do Better. Be Better. Stay Better. That would be my 2020 new motto! It’s all about getting in alignment with your spirit and learning how to stay there more often than not. Leading with love. Being appreciative. Being so in alignment that no-one or nothing really bothers you cuz you are SOOOO in alignment with your SELF. THAT is my dream and focus for 2020. It involves not caring what others think about you. Feeling free in your own body. Feeling comfortable in your own skin. Feeling light as opposed to heavy. Feeling happy and healthy and energetic and flowy! Yes that’s what I wish. Now I just gotta keep reminding my brain.
I have clarity around this matter and yes I am still learning and growing and expanding. It will never get done and I am okay with that. Everything is ok and always working out for us. I am happy to have a brain that functions with great memories. I am happy to have 5 senses that help life seem more fulfilled and experiential. I am happy these senses can feed my mind and help out with this positive power of thought idea. So grateful.
So I guess the next time you wake up ask your brain how you can create the best day ever! Perhaps lay in silence when you first wake up and see what space you can create in your mind that is full of blankness. Kinda like if you were to wake up and erase the chalkboard and look at it all blank. Then as the day goes by you fill it with positive thought. Yes meditation and sleep can help with this process. They are like a reset and the cool thing is we get to do it every single day! It is true! Every day is a new day, a fresh start, a moment to contribute positive to your thought, a moment to be compassionate towards yourself, a moment to love and live free in your own reality. We create what our life can be so it is worth it to take time to utilize our power of thought and be the most happiest and powerful creatures on earth and beyond.
I used to surround myself with quotes and stuff and realized that was the start to retraining my brain. The true expansion and change takes place when you put the words into action and live them out and actually believe them. It is a process that takes place within yourself and only has to do with yourself and nobody else. You have the power to expand your horizon to why not? Why not start to live fully? Why not create sunshine for yourself and others every day? WE are our own power and sometimes we let other people places and things and situations cloud our thought. It's ok we are human and that is part of the learning and growing process. Be gentle with yourself and love yourself enough to know that greatness exists within you already and all you have to do is tap into it. It's awesome! It's like a class where you already have an A and ll you have to do is keep the A.
Not sure how to get started? Well, maybe wake up tomorrow and try to lay in bed and meditate and see what happens….
i figured if i let this slideshow repeat over and over it would help us retrain our brains... :)
