Thriving Women: How are your thoughts today?
Posted on Jan. 5, 2005 at 9:51 a.m.
Hello Thriving Women,
How are your thoughts today? Check in with yourselves for a moment and review the kind of thoughts and inner dialogue you are experiencing. According to research, we think the same thoughts over and over. We think an average of 60,000 thoughts a day, and most of them are the same thoughts we had the day before and the day before that. Our thinking can become ruts of negativity or foundations to a new life. Think new thoughts every day. Think creative thoughts. Think of new ways to do old things.
Our consciousness is like a garden. Whether the garden is the garden in our yards or the garden of our minds, the most important first step is to build good soil by getting out all the weeds, all the rocks, all the debris that you can find. In our minds, begin by removing every negative thought and belief you can find.
Then plant some good beliefs, some really good, positive thoughts. Affirm what you want to have in life, and there will be nothing to stop you. Your garden of thoughts will grow most abundantly. As our thinking changes, we develop more self-worth and self esteem, and then we begin to allow life to bring to us all the good it has in store.
The following is a healing meditation by Louise Hay:
I am willing to see the magnificence of me. I now choose to eliminate from my mind and life every negative, destructive, fearful idea and thought that would keep me from being the magnificent woman that I am meant to be. I now stand up on my own two feet and support myself and think for myself. I give myself what I need. It is safe for me to grow. The more I fulfill myself, the more people love me. I join the ranks of women healing other women. I am a blessing to the planet. My future is bright and beautiful.
Remember: The smallest positive change in your thinking can begin to unravel the biggest problem. Have a wonderful week, beloved women, thinking positively about yourselves and visualizing yourselves soaring forward into your best life.
