I love audio books ! I love reading too and turning real pages but my attention is definitely shorter now than it used to be.
And the best thing with audio books is that it doesn’t weigh a thing when you travel! and when I listen to an audio book, I can take notes at the exact same time! Oh goodies !!! 100% P.L.E.A.S.U.R.E
My recent purchase was ‘You can heal your life’, by Louise L. Hay.
I’d read her book years ago but decided it was time for me to go back to it.
We never have too much of Louise Hay in our lives! 🙂
The book was actually offered to me by a very good friend of mine. She knew I needed it then. And that’s the beauty of books! you have them, you share them, you sometimes notice that you don’t really need them anymore but that someone else does … and so you gift them…
Anyways, this brings me to the subject of the day:
In the last few years, I have been facing personal obstacles and difficulties. As a result, they brought; confusion, sadness, anger and other feelings.
I realised negative emotions had been building up for some time and like a volcano, they started boiling up – ready for eruption.
Recently, I was able to identify and understand some of them… So I thought why not sharing this with you. It could help you too!
We sometimes need HELP and time out to figure things out.
Let me reassure you now. We are humans. So – by definition- we are imperfect. But if we do have feelings, whether positive or negative, I think it is pretty good! at least we are no robots… And it probably means that we are NO sociopaths either! 🙂
>>> I’m looking up the internet to catch the correct meaning of a sociopath – and make sure I’m not just saying stupid things here … well you might be interested in knowing that sociopathy depends on your level of empathy, so your ability to feel for others and a somewhat limited conscience. So the term here is a bit odd and misused but I’m sure you’ll get the gist <<<
Anyways, back to the analysis.
Once you notice and identify your feelings. See if you understand the cause… Then LET GO ! 🙂
- IDENTIFY the feelings. What are they ? How does it express itself ?
- UNDERSTAND the cause
- LET GO
I’ve suffered from arthritis many times in life and from an early age. It comes and goes. And unfortunately, comes again …
Then there is the pain in the wrist… and the shoulder … sometimes the left side, sometimes the right (depending on the scenarios …)…
I know now and understand it has something to do with the rigidity (limitations in my mind, ways of thinking,…) and stubbornness. And cherry on the top: I AM A CONTROL FREAK 🙂
Does that sound familiar to you too???
Like most people, I struggle ‘letting go’ and seem more limited with my thoughts than I imagined. I hate to admit it, but I am very stubborn.
And I would probably say that one of my biggest challenges is FEAR.
Rigidity comes from fear. The fear of loosing control. The fear of what’s coming next not complying exactly with what I imagined in my mind… The fear of failing, failing at life, at the idea of my life and where I should be by now…
Like anybody, I have ups and downs too.
And sadly, we are not all the same in regards to those: Hormonal imbalances, bipolar disorders, troubles sleeping, and so many more…
In my ‘up’ moments, I truly believe I can. I feel amazingly positive, strong and creative.
But as soon as the ‘down’ hits back, it all suddenly becomes CRITICISM. And self limitations/ sabotage:
“I can’t” or “I don’t care anymore” or other excuses like “it’s not happening, because I don’t deserve it” or “because it’s not for me”, or “not the right time for me” … blablabla … and the best of all:
“The Universe is deciding. So it must be that it is not the right thing/time for me”.
Today I want to say: ENOUGH is ENOUGH !
To quote Louise Hay;
I want to create A LOVING, CARING, JOYFUL,PROSPEROUS & HEALTHY LIFE for myself.
‘Whatever is happening out there is only a mirror of our own inner thinking...
No matter what the problem is, our experiences are just outer effects of inner thoughts.‘ and ‘Believe it or not, we do create our thoughts.‘
But ‘THOUGHTS ARE JUST THOUGHTS. & THOUGHTS CAN BE CHANGED.’ ‘Thoughts create feelings. If you don’t have the thought, you won’t have the feeling...
Also, We can’t change the past. The past is over and done. But we can change our attitude towards the past. So, we can change our thoughts about the past.‘
‘Resentment, criticism, guilt and fear are our worst enemies. They cause major problems in our bodies and in our lives.
These feelings come from blaming others and not taking responsibility for our own experiences. If we are all responsible for everything in our lives, then there is no one to blame.’
‘On a physical level;
- Resentment long held can become the disease we call cancer
- Criticism can often lead to arthritis
- Guilt always looks for punishment and punishment creates pain
- Fear and the tensions it produces can create baldness, ulcers and even sore feet…
When we are in a state of panic, it is very difficult to focus our minds on the healing work. So We have to TAKE TIME OUT to dissolve the fears first.
Forgiving and releasing resentment can resolve even cancer.
To release the past, we must be willing to forgive. We need to choose to release the past and forgive everyone (ourselves included). We may not know how to forgive… but the very fact we are WILLING TO forgive, begins the healing process.‘
Now, let’s practice! STOP blaming ourselves AND others ! And work on letting go of what doesn’t do us & the world any favour.
Be aware of your thoughts and what you put out in the World.
START FORGIVING AND RELEASING THE PAST ! Tomorrow may be too late…
