We can’t change negative thought patterns overnight but what we can do is practise a little at a time, and then a little more again, to change our thoughts for the better. Find that feel good feeling of whatever it is you want to see in your life - a happier relationship, a new job, world peace, whatever it may be, and have a little daydream about how lovely it will feel. Let yourself imagine it and how great it is going to feel when that becomes a reality in your life.
Your brain cannot differentiate between what is your current reality, what is a memory, or what is a projected future wish. It will automatically reflect back into your life whatever you give your most attention and energy to.
Make a point of daydreaming for a minute or two, a few times a day. Instead of worrying about things, give yourself a little breather and say, I’m going to think about this instead, about how wonderful it’s going to be. Actually I’m going to think about it as if it’s already happened and immerse myself in the sensation of how good that feels. And I’m going to just sit here and smile at how wonderful it is.’
And for those of you who say, ‘Well this is just silly. I’ve got the weight of the world on my shoulders and I can’t be indulging in foolish daydreams’, we say – ‘That’s exactly what you need to do to get the weight of the world off your shoulders and to bring into your life what you do want!’
