You all know how it goes. That cycle of stinking thinking. That thing that happened to you years ago that made you think a negative thing about yourself or another person or even a group of people and now, YEARS later you still think the same thoughts about it.
For example. Your dad left your mom before you even knew about him. Mom said he was worthless and all the men in her life were jerks who eventually broke her heart and left. You carried that thought and experience with you of “All men are jerks!”
I know this is a girly example, but men I what if you grew up with a dad who never told you how proud he was of you. Or the things you did were never good enough, those things are damaging and can cause you to struggle in relationships, jobs etc. These stories we have told ourselves as a result of events can serve us or tear us down. We have to learn to break that cycle and insert new ideas and patterns in order to get new results.
It takes a lot of self-examination, painful emotions even, and creating new thought patterns.
If this post touched you and you want to begin a journey of healing your thought patterns and getting some freedom, I would love to go deeper with you. You can pop over to my website http://www.coaching805.com and set up a free consultation with me.
It’s only natural that we are not going to agree with everyone and visa versa. Some people are more hurtful in how they disagree, though.
I also find some jobs make us more vulnerable to public criticism. Having your own business, wanting to have your own business, politics, blogging, writing, parenting. The list goes on and on.
People’s criticism and sometimes cruel words can knock us down and keep us from doing what we love, or we can choose the higher road and bless and release these people from our lives.
It is a simple, but powerful action. It’s an act of self-love more than one of forgiveness. It is a quiet yet powerful way of say “I am successful, loved, and worthy and another’s opinion does not affect me in negative ways because I don’t let it.”
When someone posts a negative comment on your social media, or says something to your face, or tells a mutual friend something that is hurtful, take a deep breath. Imagine yourself putting that thought or words into a bag. Tie it up real tight and throw it away saying “I bless and release you and your words.”
It’s so freeing and healthy! Can’t wait to hear how this helps you all!
For the second time today I have read/heard “The world needs more of YOU” from two unrelated people…I call that a moment people.
In reflection I got to thinking “What do I have to offer the world?” um A LOT! I am a life changer, a hope giver, a lover, and a friend. A few years I ago I would have been stuck on the whole “what do I have to offer?” part instead of turning it around and making it about the world and the impact that I happen to have on it.
YOU are needed. Your gifts, talents, crazy hair, thick thighs, too long legs, unorganized, weird, smart, fun, awesome, imperfect self. Who cares what your physical flaws are or are not. If you have character flaws work on them for yourself and the world around you. Take what you do have, wrap it up and give it to the people around you. Start making a change today. Don’t wait until the new year, or after Christmas or tomorrow, NOW!
This is defintly a call to action. This is a challenge from my heart to yours.
If this spoke to you in anyway and you want to go deeper, I am here for you.
When our bodies are worn out we know. We are tired, energy levels are low, we are cranky. Generally sleep, rest, and relation are helpful but do you know what it is like when your soul is worn out and tired?
“The soul was not made to run on empty. But the soul doesn’t come with a gauge. The indicators of soul-fatigue are more subtle: • Things seem to bother you more than they should. Your spouse’s gum-chewing suddenly reveals to you a massive character flaw. • It’s hard to make up your mind about even a simple decision. • Impulses to eat or drink or spend or crave are harder to resist than they otherwise would be. • You are more likely to favor short-term gains in ways that leave you with high long-term costs. Israel ended up worshiping a golden calf simply because they grew tired of having to wait on Moses and God. • Your judgment is suffering. • You have less courage. “Fatigue makes cowards of us all” is a quote so ubiquitious that it has been attributed to General Patton and Vince Lombardi and Shakespeare…” Soul Keeping
The one that JUMPED out at me was You are more likely to favor short-term gains in ways that leave you with high long-term costs. Is it just me or have you ever felt this way. You just want to get a task done and over with or you start being ok with the pleasure and reward you get from small or simple things.
I want to challenge all of my readers to assess if they are tired and worn out and worn down to figure out why? Where is it coming from. Is it your body or your innermost soul. How can you fix it and start the rejuvenation process?
I didnt mean for this to be too deep but as a life coach health of body, mind, and soul are very important to me and most problems people face stem from the innermost part, the soul.
If you want to start working through some stuff and get on the right track I would love to help you. Lets set up a free consultation and working on finding some peace, joy, and vision.
