What Are You Telling Yourself?

Mental health

It’s our obligation as vibratory beings to raise out of our perpetuated thought pattern and look at our situation from a different perspective…

Without notice, it arrives. The vulnerability and discomfort of one’s current space, removed from what once felt warm and calming. Fear seeps into every crevice of the mind. Static and exhausted until resolution can be achieved. Breath aligns mind with body and, with each exhale, the scaling of gray begins to peel away. I am back home. I am safe…

Recognize, accept and let go.

It’s a strange feeling, maybe you’ve felt it before. When walls wear thin, thoughts may come creeping in… feelings of anxiety, distress, confusion and fixation. But I began to pull myself out of this place, the first step being recognition. I recognized my thoughts as they appeared, without judging them as good or bad. I then began to accept my thoughts. In the world in which we all live, we experience unparalleled stimuli, constantly bombarded by intense energies. While thoughts materialize in your mind, it’s crucial to remember that you are not your thoughts. They are simply an experience. From that acceptance grows freedom. You can then let go of those thoughts… centering your mind with your breath, maybe counting to ten, and moving on.  

Remain grateful for every emotion.

It’s our obligation as vibratory beings to raise out of our perpetuated thought pattern and look at our situation from a different perspective, aiming to be better every day. Fixating on negative emotions will only trap you in that space. Rather than feeling pity, or sulking in our feelings, we should always hold gratitude for every emotion, whether pleasant or disturbing. Once we achieve that gratification, every feeling becomes an experience from which to grow. For me, it took one quote to shift my reality completely.

“Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.” — Lisa Hayes  

Empower yourself and take action.

Start focusing on new thoughts, thoughts of empowerment. Write down personal goals, and replace ‘I will’ statements with ‘I am’ statements. “I am powerful, I am strong, I am free.”  Remember that everyone is fighting the good fight, so there’s no need to compare yourself to others. We are all on our own journey, unique to our being. Identifying with something you think you are is only aligning yourself with that frequency over and over again. Tell yourself a new story. It will take time and will require practice. But results require action.

So, what are you telling yourself?
