Many people are still battling their minds. If you are one of these people you are not alone. Most of us were not taught to be positive, we were taught to worry. Old belief patterns (mistakes…regrets…fears…life in general) creates imprints in our mind. Once we get started it can be hard to dig our way out of the rabbit hole. The thing is YOU are the only one who controls your mind and you have the power to change it. You are the only one who can change it.
It takes practice, but with time you can become the master of your mind.
Below, I have created 3 easy steps to guide you. Do these steps daily and watch how quickly you can identify a thought before it overtakes you. The more you do this the easier it becomes. Then, there will come a time when you will hear the negative thought or worry as it is just entering the mind and you will have the power to shift it.
1. “Look at the bright side” – Become the watcher of your thoughts and if they’re not positive, gently guide yourself into a more uplifting conversation.
2. “Take a moment” – Listen to your thoughts as if you were your own best friend. When the thoughts are running wild, breathe in and out slowly. Give yourself a pep talk.
3. “Creative imagery” – Imagine your mind is like a playground. Create images or ideas that make you feel good.
Do this for 21 days straight. It takes time to create a new habit. Retrain and master your mind today, then watch your whole world change!
