This week is off to quite a start. So much to do to for a productive, successful week, following a very busy weekend. Thoughts have already begun to creep in. "Will I have enough time to get such and such done?" I just had to take a breath and remind myself how toxic worry can be.
Worry is a manifestation of fear and can set you up for attracting the very things you do not want. And who wants that?
We have all experienced the big "W", though some have a tendency to make it their life's work to fret. Have you been around someone who worries about things that may or may not happen many years from now? It's a draining experience, isn't it? Worry is a self-created state of unnecessary fear that wraps its hands around our throat and chokes the very life out of us. No fun.
When we feel as if we're not in control, worry moves in. For instance, mummy worries about me driving long distances, pole dancing the apparatus if it's over 8 feet, hell, going outside. I get it, believe me. As a parent, I'm sure it's never ending. However, chronic worry is a need to feel useful and in control and ensures stress and all its accompanying unpleasantries.
Just as worry uses our vast imagination, so does the antidote to worry. Lets attempt to live in the best case scenario. Visualize the outcome you wish to see. Generate peace as opposed to nervousness and unease. Confront the situation that is bringing up this feeling for you and take your power back.
I'm about to give you gold. Make sure you catch it!
"The Untethered Soul" by Michael A. Singer
This book has slapped me in the face and snapped me out of my trance. That isn't to say I'm in any way perfect. I have to remember to remember. I still pick it up and read it when I'm going through my stuff. It will really helps you to access the tools to get the hamster off the wheel, thereby creating inner peace and a positive outlook on life.
Aaaaahhhhhhh. I feel so much better. Let me know how you like the book. I look forward to hearing from you.
