If you put a penny in a jar for each thought that comes and goes through your mind every day, you would be quite rich. And soon you would run out of storage space for your jars.
You see, thoughts come and go and we do not have control over what they are.
If you decide to sit down for an hour and record every thought, you will discover how random this process is and how thoughts appear out of nowhere. And you will also discover that keeping up with them is quite impossible.
I used to believe that I could learn to control my thoughts and choose to think only the good, positive and uplifting ones. But that seemed to be a futile attempt.
Thoughts come and go. The only thing that I can truly do is choose not my thoughts, but whether to believe them or not.
If I choose to believe that a negative, diminishing thought depicts reality my energy drops and my mood changes. If I choose to ignore it, it has no effect on me.
Here’s my invitation to you: allow your thoughts to come and go and do not buy into them.
Is your body in need of some healing? Is your life in need of healing?
Every single change you make for the better counts a lot. Your decision to pay attention to yourself, to your body, to your feelings and your thoughts will add to your overall improvement.
Like pieces of domino arranged to create a domino effect, each little step will make the next one possible.
Although this might seem like something too small or too obvious, each step counts.
So wherever you are in your body and in your life, whatever challenge you are facing right now, take one small step and envision its power for the future steps, which might not be possible without you making the very first one today.
Do you pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you?
This short video is an invitation for you to take a little break right now and tune into your body. Does it feel at ease or is it tight and uncomfortable? Are you in pain or are you enjoying a flexible body that moves with ease and grace? Are you facing physical issues that are more serious than discomfort and tightness?
Do you want to heal your body? Be willing to examine your life with compassion and love.
Once you figure out what is not working in your life and start to take the steps to align your life with who you truly are, your body will be ready to heal.
Feels like too much work and too overwhelming a process?
Your health is your BIRTHRIGHT!
You have every right to be healthy, abundant and happy!
Limiting beliefs: I wrote about this topic many times, but because I see it everyday with my clients, I want to make the point again.
Your body will follow where your mind is willing to go.
It is that simple, but it is not that easy. Most people do not know that they can change their belief systems in such powerful ways that vibrant health, abundance and wealth, as well as fulfilling relationships will be their new, day to day experience.
What do you believe about your body, its health and capacity for healing?
Are you willing to shift your beliefs and perception so that you can heal?
Every day, in my work and outside my work, I see people struggling with various health issues; people who have – like every single one of us – an innate capacity to heal, but cannot do so because they do not think and feel in healing conducive ways.
Just in case you are curious, epistemology is a branch of philosophy concerned with the nature and scope of knowledge, especially with reference to its limits and validity, also referred to as the “theory of knowledge”; it is the study of knowledge and justified belief.
This quote explains why people do not heal (among other things) and the justified belief they have about their bodies:
“The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think.”
The way the physical body works is the way nature works: leaning towards balance and equilibrium, healing and health. Your physical body, mine and everybody else’s poses extraordinary healing abilities.
The problem with not healing versus healing is the way we were taught to think about it.
I do recommend it wholeheartedly but want to warn you that it will challenge the way you think about yourself, your thoughts, your successes and failures, your relationships and about life as you know it.
Here’s one of the many things Smart says that really grabbed my attention:
” You’re feeling your thinking, not what you’re thinking about…”
