Daily Nugget #137
a penny for your thoughts?
what are YOU thinking?
how about now?
are you so deep in your distractions
that you miss the turn?
even miss the whole day?
many days in row
only to re-appear somewhere else on your timeline.
‘hey, how’d i get here?’
they can be consuming
present moment wrecking
among other things…
what are these thoughts
where did they come from?
why the hell are they dominating my experience?!
do you ever experience this?
moments like this?
would you like some tools to tame the thought monster?
the ultimate control freak of the universe!
you must realize that you are lost in thought
bullied by them.
you can take back your mind.
a few methods that work.
choose what most resonates.
1. start paying attention.
are you here? or are you in your thoughts?
if you are caught in their web
you feel a downward spiral
start reaching for a thought that feels better than the one you are thinking.
switch ‘how will THAT ever be possible?!’
‘anything is possible.’
‘oh, i don’t deserve that. i’m not worthy.’
‘of course i deserve everything my heart desires!’
2. grab that pesky thought
yep. add it to the pile of shit that you discard at your feet
that turns to compost and nourishes you and your life.
3. notice where your thoughts are coming from?
are you pulling away from this moment?
are you dipping in to the past?
‘oh, why did i do that
stay with that person?!’
are you dipping in to the future?
‘that will never work out.
i’m afraid of what might happen.
hold the phone!
oh the freaking what ifs and should’ve’s
(wow i’ve never used a double (‘) before!).
when you start paying attention to where your thoughts are coming from
you can pay attention to if they are based in Fear or Love & Trust.
4. when you have a thought
notice if it comes from a place of fear?
a place of trust and love.
if it is based in fear
compost it and move on.
move on, baby!
you are WAY to powerful
have WAY too much potential
to be waisting any more time dwelling in Fear.
False. Evidence. Appearing. Real.
yep. that’s all fear is.
