Your brain is a great tool, but sometimes your mind can drive you crazy. It can get into repetitive loops with the kinds of thoughts that bring you down or hold you back. Or, it can just spin out of control. If you are like most human beings, you are experiencing both.
Here is a simple way to retrain your brain and let go of these negative patterns of thinking: Continue reading
You know that negative thoughts are unhealthy. Dangerous too. They keep you spinning in a false world so that you miss your real life. They re-wire your brain and personality. Steal your hope. And, energetically set you up for making them come true.
After awhile, negative thinking becomes a habit, maybe even an addiction.
When you decide you want to change, you label these thoughts as bad. You judge them. Resist them. Fight with them. And, this battle only feeds them more.
And then, you judge yourself. Or, just give up.
There is another way. A more loving way.
Simply return to the present moment and align your head with your heart.
This is how you do it:
- Take a deep breath.
- Bring to mind something that warms your heart, like a loved one, cute puppy, or something you are grateful for. Focus on it. Feel it. Savor it.
- Repeat as necessary.
At first you may need to repeat this often, but eventually it becomes your new habit.
A few tips:
- Using the same image for something that warms your heart each time creates an anchor to the present moment and an eventual short cut to get there.
- If negative thoughts try to interrupt the process, don’t resist them. Just let them gently float away.
- Be gentle and loving with yourself as you create this new way of being
Aligning your head and heart in the present moment opens the door to true internal peace and personal power.
What could be better than that?
