We have all heard the saying….”Your thoughts become your reality.” I absolutely agree with the fact that we must stay positive even in the worst situations. I also know, by my own personal experience, that sometimes that’s just not possible. Let’s face it, life is hard at times. We may feel like we just won’t or can’t make it thru. It may also feel like the snowball effect: where your problems just seem to be getting bigger and worse with no end in sight. Have you ever stopped to think…is that all in your thoughts or is that really your reality?
You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this? Let me first tell you about my amazing friend and my Hypnotherapist. Her name is Shelly Clayton and her company is H2O Hypnosis. I’ve had 3 sessions with Shelly and she literally has changed my life for the better. I had an issue that I’ve struggled with for over 30+ years. After meeting with Shelly, I am no longer a slave to this limited belief I had in myself. Shelly is amazing at what she does and I’d highly recommend her if you have anything you’d like to stop, start, continue or be better at. With that being said – I met with Shelly a few days ago and told her I felt that the hypnosis was “wearing off”. She took her time in explaining how our conscious mind is so powerful that we look for evidence to find what we are looking for. Make sense? It sure did to me!
After this conversation, I began thinking of the saying “your thoughts become your reality”, and how a positive attitude intergrades with it. It’s so true! Take a minute to think about this…. our lives SUCK if we look for the evidence for what sucks in your life or what is going wrong in our life or what could be better. The more you look for negative evidence, the more you will find – no matter what! So that’s where the positive attitude with this saying comes in. If you train yourself to think and look for evidence of all the good things in your life, even if it’s so small it may seem insignificant, you will start to feel the reality of positivity. And then your reality and your thoughts are now in line with each other. After training your brain to do this, it will become a habit (takes 66 days to create a habit) and your overall life will feel more positive. This then will have the snowball effect of so many good things happening in your life (mainly because you are not giving the negative things any thought).
Be grateful and acknowledge the tiny things (evidence) in life that are in line with being positive. Let the contrary roll-off. We are all born with a finite number of minutes; make the most of those minutes by perceiving the positive in each and every one!
I’m going to end today’s blog by recreating the above quote in my own words….”your positive evidence becomes your positive reality” – Leticia Martino.
