Somethings To Think About ...
Anecdotes, thoughts, sayings and bits of information for your day.

Changing Your Thinking...

"Working with Negativity"

"HOW you choose to shape your thoughts will determine your outlook on life. Remember, negativity is like excess baggage. It can wear you down and hold you back!"


Changing your Consciousness...

"Up From The Depths: A Technique For Change"

Some days you just wake up and don't feel well. Perhaps it's physical or it may be emotional and/or spiritual. Whatever the case may be, you are faced with the prospect of having to do somehting about it. There are simple techniques and methods for altering your state of consciousness. Here is one:

Simply lie down on a comfortable surface or sit up in a semi-reclining fashion. Make sure that you have pleasant music playing in the background. Music, especially modern atmospheric types, can penetrate the barriers that stand in the way to deeper consciousness and altered states. As you recline and allow the music to penetrate your symptoms and your defenses, begin talking out loud. Give free reign to the natural flow of your thoughts, images and feelings. If you are not too blocked and defended, the flow of consciousness will lead to a cathartic, emotionally expressive and abreactive experience.

Now, what does that mean? It means that the thoughts and feelings which were blocked, will break through into tears and sobbing. Your inner truth will become your outer reality. What was once your depressing reality is now being replaced by a deeper truth, coming from expression of your real self.

You might consider this a breakthrough. But it is just, merely, an alteration of your emotional, mental and spiritual state. This is an exercise in learning how to take care of your self..... Your real, inner self.


Dealing with Obsessions...

"Taking Action"

Obsession is nothing but concealed emotional pain. If you cathart, abreact, cry out, or scream your way into the pain, eventually it is released from your system. Then the obsession begins to lessen and disappear.


Relationships ...

"What Goes Up Can Come Down"

All relationships run the risk of possibly going from positive to negative; i.e., going from a honeymoon stage to disillusionment. What goes up can come down. Learning how to resolve problems requires careful scrutiny and possible modification of one's own reactions.Talking things out seems to be one course of action for solving interpersonal problems. However, most people do not wish to feel uncomfortable and will withdraw from some situations in order to stave off uncomfortable feelings and consequences. Contact is a major key element in problem solving.


Negative Thinking ...

"What Do You Tell Yourself?

You are the creator of your thoughts of satisfaction and dissatisfaction. How you choose to shape your thoughts can determine your outlook on life. The good news is that you can change your thoughts by changing the "way" you think.

All choices can work for your benefit. Even adversity can create an equal and greater opportunity or outcome. One choice is to change what is going on inside of your mind. Changing your situation may or may not in itself create satisfaction, but you can choose to feel satisfied inside by what you tell yourself.

Start saying to yourself, "I am satisfied". Say it over and over again. "I am satisfied". All changes and choices that you make from this point on will be grounded in satisfaction, not negativity. Say, "I am completely and thoroughly satisfied. No matter what seems wrong, I'm satisfied. Finding fault with my life leads to discontent. I choose not to find fault. I choose satisfaction. Everything is as it is supposed to be for right now. I can choose to be satisfied or dissatified. I am responsible." Try it ...


Bit and Pieces ...

"Repression"

The more repressed a person is, the less s/he is aware of that repression. Ironically, the more aware that s/he is of inner repressed feelings, the more access there is to his/her deep memories, emotional truths and early pain.
