Do you believe everything your mind says?
Perhaps a little subtler than millenniums ago, but our brains have Velcro for negativity & Teflon for the positive. An axiom in the beauty business is, do a great job & 5 people notice & give a compliment, give a bad haircut & they tell 250 people. It’s that critter brain in action.
Negativity, ‘stinkin-thinkin’ makes a bigger longer lasting impression than our positive affirmation of value, esteem, certainty, & seems to run off at the mouth as chronic complainers, worriers, glasses that are half empty, & spreaders of the gossip from radio station K-LACK broadcasters of bad news.
It’s not just psycho-babble but brain researchers are finding that’s how we are wired, but isn’t it time to rewire the critter brain. Turn off or turn down the volume, “Change channels”, as Yanet Gonzalez says.
Easier said than done?
Good question. Yes the question is the answer. It’s about Questions for Success.*
Who says my thoughts are anything other than mine & them being true are subject to question.
What’s another way to look at this? How else can I think about this? It is not necessary to question every thought, only the ones we begin to believe. It’s back to the question of “What do I want to Believe?” What do I want to believe about me, the world, my thoughts, & my life?
You can & do control your thoughts & beliefs by the questions you ask yourself. These are not always beliefs about right & wrong, or good & bad, but everyday beliefs we believe are so real they control our life.
They’re held in place by the watch dogs of stinkin-thinkin, ALWAYS, NEVER, HAVE TOO, MUST, CAN’T, and chief of ego security BLAME.
The cursed identity that finds it’s your fault. Us New Ager’s can become very subtle in how we have transformed our blamer into It’s in the food’, retrograde mercury, generic genetic issues, high/low blood sugar, obstructed Qi, a bad hair day, or WHATEVER.
Ask & ye shall receive.
