Whether you’re reading this in the morning or at the end of your day, I invite you to take a moment and reflect on your thoughts for the day ahead or the thoughts you have had. Is your anticipated day one of dread, doom and gloom or thinking back over your day has your focus been on wellness or illness?
Wellness isn’t just about physical health, our minds are powerful creators and depending on the direction of our thoughts they can either lift us up or pull us down. It’s the same for illness. No one wants to be ill, feel poorly or out of sorts though what we can do is focus on getting well, taking actions to help ourselves by eating the right foods, exercising, getting out in nature and taking our intention to one of healing and wellness.
If for any reason you can’t physically get out to do these things what you can do is to take your mind on an amazing holiday as often as you like until you feel re-charged and energised. If the Caribbean is your desired location take your mind there right now, notice the blue of the sky, the feel of the warm sand on your feet, the smell of the sea, the taste of salt in your mouth from swimming or resting at the waters edge, the sound of the waves lapping on the sure…hmmm….bliss wouldn’t you agree.
It’s true to say many people walk about ‘unconsciously’, meaning they may not even be aware of there thoughts until someone like me comes along and asks…”are your thoughts working for you, yes or no?” If what you are thinking makes you feel lousy, the good news is you can change your thoughts, after all you are the creator of your thoughts are you not?
In my line of work I get to meet some amazing people who are ready to master their thoughts as well as their lives. These people have woken up from the unconscious walking around letting their negative thoughts rule them and instead show up ready to unlearn the negative hypnotising they have been doing to themselves.
Words are powerful creators, including the words we say in our heads as well as the ones we speak and share. Would you really talk to another person the way you do to yourself?
It’s not until we explore our negative thoughts and patterns of behaviour including our thinking do we become enlightened that we have the choice. We can focus on illness or wellness, it’s really quite simple.
I invite you to make a pact with yourself from today, whenever you find yourself going off on a tangent or thinking about the things that make you feel drained, unhappy, angry, fearful or emotionally upset, change your focus to the thoughts which lift you up. Give yourself a healthy dose of encouragement, support, reassurance, love and kindness and notice how much better you feel when you turn your thoughts to wellness.
Here to guide you are the key questions from The Spotlight Process. A unique technique which I have developed to bring your thoughts into balance.
1. Where is my thinking right now? (Past, Present or Future?)
2. What proportion of my thinking is negative?
3. How does it affect me when I focus on the negative?
4. Where is the evidence that what I think will happen will happen?
5. What do I want instead of thinking or feeling this way?
6. Coming from my heart instead of my head what would love do here?
Need a helping hand to further master your thoughts? There is a whole chapter on The Spotlight Process in my first book Find YOU, Find LOVE along with a chapter on EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to support you in finding emotional freedom.
Because I love to give and want you to succeed this guided meditation ‘Negative Memory Release’ will support you in moving forwards towards health and wellness. It’s the first download you come to when you reach the downloads page, scroll down until you find it. Enjoy…
So, love your day and love your life by simply changing your thoughts.
Your future self will thank you for it…
From my heart to yours, with love,
