Hope your week is starting off perfectly. Mine is, we got some snow over the weekend and if you know me, you know, I LOVE THE SNOW :)
The last couple of weeks I have gotten several emails about quieting the mind. Sheee Hooo!!! Lots of resistance there ;) It's okay though, actually it's perfect. No one should attempt to or learn to quiet their mind until they are ready. It's all in the attitude.
Attitude is the construct of our likes and dislikes.
Attitude is the perspective one has towards a person, place, or thing.
Those are just definitions that I Googled, he he he...
The way I define attitude is your thoughts, feelings, and actions towards anything. Any thing you think, feel, or do is not neutral, it is positive or negative.
What I am trying to say is, if you think you can meditate, you can. If you feel good about meditation, you will meditate. If you just meditate, it will get easier.
The reason I am saying all of this is because stress is doubt, fear, and worry and if you meditate you can calm your thoughts of doubt, fear, and worry. At first, when you quiet your mind, you will really notice your unhealthy thoughts.
Many of my clients tell me, after they learn to meditate and quiet their mind, that they didn't realize how negative their thought process is. When you discover this, you can turn it around.
Did you know that we have at least 60,000 thoughts a day?
People really believe that they know what they are thinking. If we knew what we were thinking, we would make ourselves think thoughts like, "I can be, do, have anything my heart desires," and believe it! And then pursue what we want to be, do, and have.
When you meditate, and quiet your mind, you can notice those limiting beliefs like, "I am not pretty enough, skinny enough, smart enough, or energetic enough to do this or that."
When you destress yourself, you discover your stressful habits, which are usually your thought processes, and then you eliminate them by replacing them with healthier and more powerful thoughts.
So I am trying to create some persuasion for meditation here. Quiet your mind, calm yourself and your body, discover your unhealthy thoughts, question those thoughts, and turn them around.
Attitude is everything when you wanna destress yourself.
You gotta believe you can meditate and see the benefits of meditation. You gotta feel good about meditation, and you will do it. You gotta just do it, and it will get easier.
YOU GOT THE POWER!!! JOO CAN DO IT!!!
That's all I got...
Have a super duper alli ooper week, and don't forget to have fun and be playful.
