Thoughts are a powerful thing. We can either let our thoughts run on audio pilot or we can conscientiously choose our thoughts.
I have experienced verbal, sexual, emotional, and physical abuse during my life. If I am not careful I get lost in patterns of negative thoughts and despair. One thing leads to another and I forget that I get to choose my thoughts.
During this journey of self discovery I have found there is a cycle I go through. One of Discovery then either Releasing or Excepting that discovery which then leads to Creation. If I am running on audio pilot I go into survival mode and everything seems hard. Sometimes my thoughts spiral out of control and I go deeper and deeper in to despair. My depression and anxiety seem to be overpowering.
This cycle is not easy and at times we will meet resistance and pain. We can even be triggered as we move through the cycle that may cause us to stop practicing and moving through the cycle. Prayer, meditation, essential oils, and therapy assist us through the process. I have discovered that healing is a daily practice, not a destination. We need to love ourselves and be patient with the process.
2006 I was introduced to The Secret a film and a book presented by Rhonda Byrne. The Secret shares amazing real life stories of regular people who have changed their lives in profound ways by applying “The Secret” or the laws of the Universe. The secret or law is that whatever we focus on is what shows up in our life. In other words our thoughts become our reality. Mike Dooley said, “Thought’s become things, choose them wisely.”
I have to chose my thoughts and words carefully. I asking myself the following questions without figuring them out:
- Who Am I?
- What do I want to create?
- What do I enjoy doing?
- What Am I choosing by my thoughts and actions?
Through this practice thoughts will create the reality. They will change the way we view life and the world. We get to choose these thoughts each and everyday. Each day that we choose to put what we are learning into practice we will just get better at creating our reality with more precision.
We need to remember to take time for ourselves care and be patient as we fine tune the practice these skills. As we choose our thoughts carefully and hold on to the ones that bring us joy they will serve our higher purpose.
I declare I am the possibility of love, light, clarity, and joy. I am abundant, grateful, powerful and healed. I choose to play big, create a life I love, and I hold the space for others to do the same.
Everyone has his or her own journey. We each have our own triggers and interpretations of life. My intent is to add in the healing process not cause anxiety or pain. Our experience may be similar but they are each unique. Even though many people could have been at the same event each person experiences and remembers those events through our own eyes and will recall the event differently. My blogs will be from my perspective of my life. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. I am not a Doctor, Counselor or Therapist. I believe it is important to work with Doctors, Counselors and Therapist along with Essential Oils, Energy Healing and spirituality to find health, healing and balance.
