You know. The things you just don’t want to deal with. The things that are robbing you of your creativity and joy.
Challenges. Disagreements. Debt. Sickness.
All of these are realities of life, and the idea of “just disappearing” them is not what Belief Re-patterning is about. Pretending something is fine when it is not is not OK, it isn’t healthy nor reasonable.
What is healthy, reasonable, and what Belief Re-patterning IS about is shifting the energy of the feelings around those things. Acknowledging the “ick” and then refocusing your perception – creating a “pattern interrupt”. Stop banging your head against at the wall that doesn’t move and turn to look out the window. There is always a wall and there is always a window.
There will always be challenges. Acknowledge, then focus on your accomplishments.
Disagreements are real. Acknowledge. then notice where you experience agreement.
Debt is draining and is real. Where can you notice abundance?
When I was really sick I hurt all over. Everything seemed to be wrong. And then I began to turn my attention to what did feel ok in my body – sometimes it was as simple as saying to myself “My eyelashes feel fine and are doing an awesome job of keeping dust out of my eyes.”
Or “My fingernails are protecting my fingers well”
I know – it seems simple and maybe a bit silly. But it worked because your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between big or small, real or imagined.
Let the “ick” feelings point you toward something better.
What you want more of instead of what you don’t want.
What I discovered was that the “ick” no longer ran my life.
This weekend, in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, we move to Daylight Savings. Notice it isn’t called “Let’s disappear an hour” Focus on what we are creating. More light.
The hour simply gets dropped – and however you feel about this practice, you can use it to your advantage.
First acknowledge what you have in your life that you don’t want
Then determine how you would rather feel.
Clutter could point you toward creating more clarity.
Frustration reminds us to feel calm.
Overwhelm might be nudging me toward relaxation.
Next, mindfully place what you would like to “disappear” into that hour tonight
Then create more of whatever supportive feeling you would rather experience.
Reinforce by finding examples of the supportive feeling.
It may seem awkward or weird or even trite at first. Trust me –instead of being mired in the things you don’t want by implementing this simple practice you will become very good at focusing on what you DO want.
I forgive myself for believing I need to hang out in the “ick”
This “ick” could be inviting me to shift my feelings to… (clarity, happiness, calm – you decide!)
I choose to put the old “ick” into the disappearing hour, and consciously create…
One way I could feel… today is by…
I remember feeling… when I… (use your memory to create the uplifting feeling with a specific example)
I am consciously creating more…
I am so grateful to my mind for helping me create more…
Here’s to moving toward the light – in a mindful, practical and easy way. You can, and you will. Your mind is super powerful.
Decide to engage the power.
