Hello, my friends!
It has been a tough winter in the Haus-headquarters for colds. We have generously shared colds back and forth for what seems like 2 straight months (hence why you haven’t heard from me in two weeks)! I have a lingering cough that won’t go away (but makes me sound kind of sexy!).
It’s 4:00 am and since I can’t sleep very well, I thought I’d get up and write to you. Lately, I’ve been listening to Joe Vitale on The Law of Attraction. I used to be one of those people who were cynical about the whole thing. I wrote it off as too woo-woo or unrealistic.
If you look it up on Wikipedia, you may find other cynics out there who write it off too. How can thinking about some goal and behaving as though you’d already achieved that goal, cause the Universe to make that goal happen?
The truth be told, I like others, just didn’t understand it. I am still a student and still learning but the LOA is not unlike… well…real life.
Have you ever noticed that when you think negative thoughts, you feel unpleasant and when you feel unpleasant you tend to take actions inconsistent with what you really want? And when you take actions inconsistent with what you really want, you end up with results you don’t want to have?
Our brains are thinking ALL. THE. TIME.
But we don’t often stop and think about what we are thinking. We get caught up in the default mode of THINK-FEEL-ACT. I have proven to myself, but only 100% of the time, that when I think I am going to fail at something, I fail at it 100% of the time.
The opposite is true too. When I make peace with my anxiety and I think that while it accompanies me (it often does), it’s not my enemy and it’s not going to take me out, it doesn’t.
Call it the Universe or call it the human BRAIN.
It works the same for all of us.
The brain is an interesting thing. Whatever you habitually think gets stored in your subconscious mind. Once your subconscious mind accepts an idea, it begins to execute it. It brings it forth into your experience.
Do you ever stop and think: What is the upside of negative thinking? (some of us call it “realistic” thinking or get confused and call our thinking “the facts” – but more on that another time)
I haven’t yet found the benefit of believing my negative thoughts. Have you?
Where else do you struggle with the THINK-FEEL-ACT default mode?
Come share with me on my FB Group HERE.
This year I plan on being more visible and I am going to be there answering your questions and giving you my 2¢.
Hope to see you there.
