Have you ever noticed how your goal of thinking positive doesn't always seem to work?
Do you ever you want something so bad that it hurts? Like it's somehow impossible for you to have? And as time goes by you start thinking that you're not doing enough or you're not worthy of this thing that you see so many others enjoying.
Oh, it can get so frustrating and can put you in a tailspin of negative thoughts and feelings. Before you know it, one negative thought leads to another as it takes you in a downward spiral of more and more feelings of inadequacy. Why is thinking positive so hard?
Or, maybe you do trust that you can have all those big dreams and heart desires; the love, the job, the friends, the fun and you really do believe the Universe is on your side! Yet, sometimes you catch yourself monitoring every thought – even getting a little obsessive with trying to keep them positive when it seems as if it's taking so long to get your dreams out of your head and into your physical life. Know what I mean?
You start to doubt this thinking positive thing. You keep track of time and compare yourself to others which often creates more doubt.
You begin to doubt if you're doing all the right actions. You question your confidence. You get confused at whether you're listening more to your intuition and divine guidance or just overthinking and following what society says you must do, or must be or have to believe or whatever….ugh.
Yep, I know, been there.
When I fall into this mode, I remember that I must, must let it go! Easier said than done. This is why I chose "letting go" as my yearly theme. My intention is to practice it more and more- the letting go part. To put a conscious spotlight on what I need to let go of which generally comes down to self-doubt, limiting beliefs, and trusting the outside world more than my inner knowing.
So, I meditate to help me.
I didn't always know how. In the beginning it was weird to say it out loud – "I meditate." But not any more, I know it works. It is a practice of clearing my mind of clutter, garbage, negative self-talk and to stop all the craziness going on in my head!
On the road to quietness, I found it helped to get some inner reprogramming. To HEAR what aligns with my higher self and to ALLOW myself a few moments to cherish and explore my dreams. For example, I started using guided meditations. They helped a great deal! Hearing the right words that keep me from taking a downward dive into a endless pity party. But rather to create an expansion of the dreams that I was savoring.
I have complimentary guided meditation to share with you from Meditainment that will inspire and help you to let go and get back in your positive groove! Please listen to this, you'll be glad you did. Maybe even choose to listen to every day – which I highly recommend! This is for you darling!
