Have you ever thought about your thoughts? Have you ever thought about how your thoughts make you feel? Often times it’s our thoughts that stimulate our feelings. If you think about how someone disappointed you, you may feel sad or upset, however if you think about the person who helped you move something or watched your children while you ran an errand or some other good deed, then you may feel a sense of love and connection. So it’s evident our thoughts have a lot to do with our feelings. This week let’s take a minute to examine our thoughts. Are they mostly positive or negative? Do they leave you feeling good or bad?
It may seem weird to examine your thoughts but you will find that you gain clarity and peace of mind when you are more in control of what you are thinking. Here’s an exercise you to help. On a blank piece of paper draw a line down the center to make two columns. Use the left hand column write down your “negative” thoughts then on the right hand column write a list of your “positive” thoughts. Your positive column may be small but notice how you feel when you think about those thoughts.
Now that you have separated your positive and negative thoughts you will begin to notice them more and more. In fact carry your list with you throughout the day so you can add to it on either side. Then at the end of the day cut your list in half lengthwise so the columns are separate and burn the negative side so all you have left is the positive side. Then take the positive side and place it in a prominent place in your home or workplace. Repeat the exercise everyday for 5 days. You will end up with 5 positive lists. Try not to repeat anything on the lists. Now for the next two days keep reading your positive lists and let the good feelings affect your attitude, your relationships, and your connection to Universal Source Energy and all things good and beautiful.
