If so, did you think about the absolute best future in the world for you?
Did you take time to quiet your mind?
Did you notice your fearful thoughts?
Did you create mantras/reminders that you are a child of God with a spirit and that you can do all things with God? If not, get to gettin'!
You are the most important person in your life, and you are the only one who can make or break your life. Therefore, make your life by doing a few things for yourself, okee dokey?
You may be thinking, "doesn't everybody say yes to all of those questions?" Or, you may be thinking, "everybody says yes to those questions!"
This may be true, and chances are most do all three of the above either once in a while or all the time.
The next week, I was with the same group and they were arguing that people have to be stressed. One guy even told me getting stressed is good. Seriously!?! Hello!?!
STRESS IS THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF EVERY ILLNESS!
Well, stress is just fear. Actually, we were discussing anger, which is stress, and it shows up for three reasons; first because of the fear that one won't get their way, second because that person believes he or she will not be able to handle it (whatever their mind thinks 'it' is), and third because it becomes a habit, aka a mood of the mind.
Believing that you have to become angry is just a belief. I know many people who never get angry, including me. Sure my anger can be kindled, but within milliseconds, poof, it's gone.
The week before, I had discussed anger, how to get rid of it, and that it is totally possible to get rid of it. These same individuals I discussed this with agreed because they consciously were hearing what I was saying.
The next week they forgot all of it and argued against what they agreed with a week earlier because of the mood of their mind and their deep subconscious beliefs. My, my, I could go on and on about this stuff...
That, my friend, is just a belief, and quite a humongous illusion.
You can enlarge your vision, you can retrain your brain, and you can overcome worry, control, and distrust.
I know this with all my heart and soul because I have seen so many people do it, with a little help, a willing heart, and an open mind.
Sheesh! The reason I am probably so good at relieving peoples' crises, and despair is not only that I have had years of practice but, when people are at the end of their rope, they are so desperate they will try anything.
Have you ever heard about people who had to reach their lowest to do anything to lift themselves up? Well, my friend, I believe in prevention, and that means preparation.
I am a firm believer, and I teach my clients this as well, in practice being fully present in faith.
What the heck does being fully present in faith mean? It means to be fully present at the moment, and without fear. I practice this daily in my meditations, and I am pretty darn good because practice makes nearly perfect.
There you have it! My ramble on how to destress your life with faith in others.
Until the next post...
