As we move into a new year it usually means New Year's resolution, but just for a moment let's do something different.
Let's throw away the good intentional but never carried out multitude of resolutions like changing our eating habits, losing weight, or making more money (you get the picture)! Instead I purpose that you focus on a single change that will affect your life more than any resolution that bores you in a few weeks could ever!
In my practice as a Metaphysical Practitioner I'm often asked how to turn negative chatter in your head around. Since we know how important it is to maintain a positive attitude. I thought it time to address the issue of chatter and negative self-talk. You know what I'm talking about that voice inside your head that is always judging you. The voice that is the first thing you hear when you drop something or stub your toe. It's the voice that says "I'm stupid" "I can't do anything right".
These negative statements have more of an impact on your subconscious mind and your life than you can imagine. Because your subconscious mind runs the show. Ninety percent of every new experience is based on what is seeded or programmed in your subconscious. These ideals are developed from patterns and habits formed from childhood, genetic cellular memory, past lives, and even from the beginnings of our existence. We learn from our parents, other people, and events we experience as we grow up. Some of the things learned may have served us as children, but no longer serve us as adults. Others are the product of difficult or traumatic experiences held in our subconscious or memory banks, and have left a legacy of negative beliefs and thought patterns. Our thoughts and our words are energy and therefore have the power to change our lives.
This negative voice is something we all have, and at times struggle with, but you can take control of it and let your positive attitude shine through and thus create the life you deserve!
I'm going to give you two ideas you can use to turn off the negative voice and turn on the positive one, so that it can become the dominate voice you hear.
First, you have a negative message come through say "Cancel thought, Cancel thought, Cancel thought" or "Delete, Delete, Delete" and then replace that negative thought with a positive one. You don't need to say it aloud. For example, if your negative voice says "I can't do this, it's to hard for me", think "Cancel thought, Cancel thought, Cancel thought, and then follow that with "Nothing is to hard for me when I put my mind to it, in fact I can do anything"!
Right now, of course you're thinking "this is to hard for me". Think about this, you did not get here over night and so it's going to take practice and effort to reprogram yourself! Everything takes practice , and as you may be thinking this is silly, your persistence will pay off, and before you know it , not only will this become automatic for you, but your negative thought will diminish greatly.
