Have you ever heard of the phrase, “Change your thoughts, change your life” ? Easier said than done, right?
We know that having a positive mindset and joyful thoughts are the keys to accessing the abundance of whatever it is we desire; Success, love, happiness, health. But why is it so difficult to change our thoughts? Think about it. Have you ever been in the midst of an argument with your partner, friend or children? Your emotions have gotten the better of you and you are angry or hurt. How easy is it, in that moment, to decide to be happy? Its not. But it can be!
By understanding and bringing awareness to the fact that our minds are conditioned to respond to situations based on past experiences, we can bring forth new possibilities for how we can interpret our world. The key to changing our thoughts is to reprogram our conditioned mind so that we may offer a new set of beliefs for interpreting our world.
To quote The Work of Byron Katie, begin to ask yourself “Is it true?” These three magical words hold the power to reprogram how we think by questioning our conditioned mind. Next time you are confronted with a fear, thought or situation, instead of defaulting to your early programming, ask yourself “Is it true?” and watch a new life of thoughts emerge.
