“We become what we think about, most of the time”~ Earl Nightingale
What seeds are you planting into the garden of your mind?
In my yoga sessions, I often explain how our thoughts shape our reality. If you are continuously in a negative state of mind you’re not only preventing yourself from enjoying this gift of life, you can possibly be rushing to an early death.
Studies have proven that stress plays a huge factor in creating dis-ease in the body. Heart problems, anxiety, weight problems, cancers, digestive issues, and depression can all be linked back to our thoughts and mental well-being.
Change Your Thoughts And You Can Possibly Change Any Outcome
But How Do I Change My Thoughts?
Good question. Research suggests that we silly humans experience 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts per day. That fact alone can be hard to process.
You and I both know that most of our thoughts are repetitive. Some make sense, other thoughts make absolutely no sense at all.
WHY am I thinking this?
I bet you’ve asked yourself this at one time or another.
When you begin to understand the mind you learn that many of our thoughts are habitual and if you want to change the results in any given area of your life you must change the old habitual patterns of behavior.
This can be done successfully through a process called Paradigm Shift (I’ll touch on that in another post) but below are my trusted tips on turning a negative into a positive.
Here’s what I practice & preach…
Understanding that they are “just thoughts” and every thought can be changed, I immediately replace it with a positive thought.
Sound simple? It really is. It takes practice but I promise if you begin to become aware of your negative thoughts and quickly replace them with a positive thought, things will begin to shift in your life.
I usually use gratitude and prayer to turn my – into a + 🙂
