Affirmations For Change

Tribal Wolf Patterns Colored by SpringwolfCreating Positive Thought Patterns

We all set up recurring thought patterns in our subconscious that affect how we live our life. These patterns could be self doubt, a lack of confidence, or emotional perspectives based on how you interact with others. These thoughts can come from societies preconceived notions about the kind of person you are, from family and friends, and from your own views about situations you have experienced in your life.

Allowing these thought patterns to reside in your subconscious, allows them to dictate your choices in life, which at times can be detrimental to self-growth and enlightenment.

One way to help bring about change in your life is to focus on replacing negative thinking with positive thinking through affirmations. Instead of “I hate being fat” for instance, start telling yourself “I am beautiful” or “I am working to become the healthy person I want to be”.

Affirmations are a way of reprogramming the subconscious to think differently and to automatically react in a more positive way when trigger situations occur in your life. Continue reading

Evolving The Spirit

Karma isn’t the only thing that can set up thought patterns and actions in your life. How you think affects the way you feel. Our own thought patterns effect the health of our body, mind and spirit.

When you’re creating an uneasiness or “dis-ease” in your body, by the way you think, feel and approach each situation in your life, you create energy that will manifest in your physical body. So each emotional thought pattern is really an underlying “cause” of a physical illness, or emotional situation in your life.

We all set up recurring thought patterns in our subconscious that affect how we live our life. These patterns could be self doubt, a lack of confidence, or emotional perspectives based on how you interact with others. These thoughts can come from societies preconceived notions about the kind of person you are, from family and friends, and from your own views about situations you have experienced in your life.

If you are a person who has been through many failed relationships, you could develop a thought pattern that causes you to expect failure in any new relationship that comes your way. Which is a way to set up a self fulfilling prophecy, even when your own “expected perception” is wrong. Continue reading

Optimism And Healing

Overcoming Life’s Hurdles

Overcoming Life's HurdlesHow we look at the world around us is based on perspectives that we form through our experiences and how those experiences impact our life. But it is also formed by the type of people we surround ourselves with. From childhood we mimic the views and attitudes of our parents. In adulthood we learn to think for ourselves, value our own opinions and have more control over our views, emotions and responses. The choice is up to us.

Being optimistic doesn’t mean you live in a fantasy world where everything is wine and red roses. It means being able to look beyond the doom and gloom to find the positive element in all things and focus energy on that. All situations have some element of good, but we rarely see what that is until we’re well beyond the event. If we allow ourselves to heal and get beyond it, that is. Continue reading

You Can Only Change Yourself

But That Will Change How Others Respond To You

Introspection & ChangeEveryone knows the adage “You can’t change others” or “You can’t learn lessons for others” when dealing with negative situations. Those wise old sayings come from centuries of experience passed down from one generation to the next. But it seems in our desire to be helpful and show compassion we have to be reminded of their message constantly. If you continue the same patterns of response, you are allowing others to control your emotions and direct your path. They don’t have to change you, because they have the ability to manipulate you through their own actions and your consistent patterns of response. They already know how you’re going to react, because you’ve done it so many times before. In doing so, you become an enabler and through your own actions, you promote the negative behavior you want changed in the first place.

This can occur in any type of relationship. It’s more often associated with relationships that are impacted by addiction. But it can also occur in work situations with a boss, or co-worker. Continue reading
