In elementary school, it's a wonder why we don't get formally introduced to our minds - the wonder, magic and sheer magnificence of it is astounding. The mind literally shapes our lives.
What is the blueprint of your mind? Take a second, look around and your life will tell you. Our thoughts create our life. That's good news because we can change our thoughts and work with our subconscious. We must if we want new, dynamic experiences.
Thoughts are Food
Thoughts feed us and fuel us or they weigh us down. Thoughts lead to feelings and feelings can be light and exhilarating or heavy and disempowering.
We need to carefully choose our thoughts and see where we've been harboring fugitives. For instance, if our self esteem is not where we'd like it to be, and we keep disqualifying ourselves for that job, that vision, that [fill in the blank]...we need to weed out the thoughts and practices that lead us down the well worn path of negativity. Our story won't change until we drop thoughts that no longer serve our highest good.
To create a new experience:
We begin by simply noticing. Notice and report whenever you catch yourself telling yourself something that doesn't empower you. You can say, "Oh there it is. I'm comparing myself again."
So we drop the disempowering thought. It's like taking out the garbage. Garbage will start to smell and grow mold and invite unwanted critters. Negative thoughts create smelly, old storylines.
We replace the negative thoughts with high vibe thoughts in the present tense: "I'm a wildly successful yoga teacher creating limber Brooklynites everywhere." You get the idea...
Nature abhors a vacuum so we take care to replace the negative thoughts with positive ones. Be daring -set the bar high!
