We have an amazing ability to change our thinking and ourselves … but it can be tantalizingly difficult to do so!
Why? Because our own thinking and beliefs get in the way.
One way of looking at this is to turn to science and then think of yourself as a human magnet.
You attract what you think about. You become your thoughts.
Take a moment to consider: “Are my dominant thoughts serving me, holding me back or making me miserable?”…
Neuroscience research shows that we can create new neural pathways in our brain that change our thinking to support our well being and happiness.
⊕ The more we think negative thoughts, the more these neural pathways will be reinforced, and the more we will struggle with them.
⊕ The more we think positive thoughts the more these neural pathways will be reinforced and the better we will feel.
Ask yourself: “Do I want to feel like this?” “What thinking do I really want to reinforce”?
In a world where reality is created by our thoughts, when we change our thinking we can watch and experience a new reality unfold.
We can reinforce these neural pathways with practice…. and feel so much better for it 🙂
Choose to take positive actions: Listen to inspiring music … Sing along … Get your body and senses involved so the cell memory can also reinforce the positive element … Walk in nature … Cuddle … Listen to a TED talk or inspirational meditation CD … Read a book that inspires you and creates positive thoughts and feelings … Be around inspiring and happy people … Actively choose how you want to feel and what to attract more of.
I’m not advocating trying to escape challenging feelings and discomfort. They are a natural part of the highs and lows of life. Its your choice. When you notice your thinking is caught in a negative spiral, come into the present moment, pause and reframe.
This is life in balance.
Let it be a mindful choice what you want to attract and how you want to be in life.
