Up to 60 000 thoughts enter our mind every day!
That takes up a lot of our energy, doesn’t it?!
If not all!
Sometimes we feel exhausted,
Sometimes we feel drained,
sometimes we feel heavy,
sometimes we see no light at the end of the tunnel,
just because we can’t get our mind to stop racing.
keep coming back like a boomerang,
seem to multiply every split second!
You feel as if your head is going to explode.
You feel as if the thoughts are in control.
And they are!
As long as you don’t say STOP:
they WILL rule your mind,
It is up to you to put an end to their reign,
because they will never abdicate!
First say out loud:
Repeat it as many times as necessary to stop that train of thoughts coming in and swirling around like leaves in a storm.
The moment you feel they’ve stopped for a second:
You take over.
You start deciding which ones can stay and which ones must go.
You ask yourself:
What thoughts are helping me?
What thoughts are supporting me?
What thoughts are useful to move on?
What thoughts make me happy?
What thoughts are about things I can actually change?
Work with those thoughts.
Only let those thoughts stay.
When useless, negative, draining thoughts try to enter your mind again:
thank them for showing up,
then tell them you don’t need them anymore,
and give them permission to leave your head,
You may think this is stupid,
you may think this is childish,
I don’t care:
You have to acknowledge the useless thoughts first before letting them go.
Because pushing thoughts away,
will only make them come back.
The more you push them away, the harder they will come back.
you have to recognize them,
tell them you don’t need them anymore,
in order to let them go.
You get to decide what thoughts you let in.
Give energy to:
thoughts that are serving you:
thoughts that make you take action,
thoughts that help you move forward,
thoughts that keep you vibrating on a higher frequency,
thoughts that keep your energy on a high level
thoughts that expand your heart.
It will take practice and a lot of determination
because thoughts are stubborn little buggers.
begging you to let them in again.
Say ‘no thank you’!
Train yourself in recognizing the difference between:
positive, action-oriented thoughts
and negative, energy-draining thoughts.
Welcome the first and
thank and dismiss the latter.
Don’t give up,
Keep training yourself!
After a while,
you’ll become very skilled in choosing the helpful thoughts.
My invitation to you all this week is:
Check in with your thoughts.
Start seeing the difference between thoughts.
Train yourself in reacting to them as we said before:
Welcome the positive, action-oriented thoughts
Decline the negative, energy-draining thoughts.
Give yourself the peace and quiet of a restful mind.
The more selective you become with your thoughts,
the more energy you will feel flowing through your body,
the happier you’ll feel,
the more peaceful you’ll feel.
Where focus goes, energy flows.
Focus on the positive thoughts and the energy will flow freely.
Thank you all for reading me.
