"No matter what the situation, remind yourself 'I have a choice'."~Deepak Chopra
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
We are often very curious about what others think about certain topics: a situation we have in front of us, a person, or even about ourselves. We are always so interested in the opinions of others. But, the truth is, we should be most interested in our very own thoughts. In fact, you should be observing your very own thoughts and opinions right now and all day long. Ask yourself, “What am I thinking about at this very moment?” And more importantly, "How do these thoughts make me feel?"
Why is this so important? Because whatever you are thinking about (and your perspective about it) right now is causing you to feel a certain way. So, when you empower yourself by putting your focus and priority on feeling good, you pave the way to your next positive experience.
You want to be sure that you are taking care of you and your future experiences by choosing the best possible thoughts (words and actions) of love, gratitude, and fun in the only moment that matters, NOW. When you do, you begin to create new and better situations and circumstances in your life. You begin to live life more in the flow, moving with the current. Life is supposed to be easy and fun... and this is the way!
How can you do this? Simply take your focus out of your head and think with your heart.
1. Put your hand on your heart and feel it beating.
2. With your hand in place, repeat to yourself (out loud is most powerful, but you can also say it quietly): "I love myself," or "I love you, (your name)." Repeat again and again to deepen the feeling.
3. As you breathe, imagine the air that you are breathing in is love that flows to every part of your body. As you exhale, see love leaving your heart and flowing up to your brain.
In order to raise your energy to a place where you feel really, really good, repeat this over and over again. Keep going. As the endorphIns release into your brain, you will begin to feel better, more calm, more creative, and more empowered to make this moment, this day, and your life into something amazing!
