Don’t Invite The Nasties To Dinner!!!

“Know that you can always choose the thoughts you allow in your mind, so make the effort to replace disempowering, weakening thoughts with those of a higher spiritual frequency. It is your choice!”

– Dr. Wayne Dyer

You know I write a lot about this and I will continue to do so. Thoughts are things and we can CHOOSE which ones we want to focus on.

Yes, I know thoughts just randomly pop into our minds and that is okay. It is the ones we entertain that matter.

Think of it this way, if you had a dinner party and some of the guests that you invited were not suited to your way of being, or they were rude or nasty or anything that was negative. Would you keep inviting these people to your table?

A woman with a knife and fork in her hands with an angry look on her face.

NO! So why would we do it with our thoughts?

There is a magical combo that works well but it means that you have to practice self-care as well.

When you have a thought or multiple thoughts that are not serving you, recognize it, and then CHOOSE a new thought. However, with that said it is much easier to do when you are in a place of ‘feeling good’.

Do Things That Make YOU Feel Good

Therefore, do things every day that make you feel good and that show nurturing and caring for your body, mind and spirit. For example, I started my morning by reading more on the power of gratitude in my life. I am sipping on warm lemon water now and I have some peaceful and Zen type of music on.

It doesn’t matter ‘what’ you do, just do things that show you that you are sacred and loved!!!!!

When you feel better about yourself it is much easier to pivot your thoughts when those nasties arise.

So I leave you with the goal of two things today:

  1. Do MORE things for YOU today that nurture you and make you FEEL GOOD
  2. Consciously be AWARE of your thoughts and start replacing the nasties with BETTER thoughts.

Okay, I hope you found this helpful and have a great day everyone!

And please remember that if you are really struggling, it is always OK to reach out for help. That my friends is nurturing yourself too!

Big Hugs to All!

Dealing With Anxious Thoughts

“You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you”. Dan Millman

You might be thinking the above statement is an impossible feat, but I encourage you to think of thoughts in another way and it might be helpful for you.

Thoughts Are Things

We often say that “thoughts are things” and it is true. So if this is indeed true and thoughts are just things just like a coffee cup is a thing, a laptop is a thing, a t-shirt is a thing, etc. etc.

So with that said, if things are things, we may have things in our lives, but we don’t become our things.

Instead we USE our things. We use the coffee cup to drink coffee, or water, or tea, or to drink whatever we decide from it.

We wear the t-shirt but we don’t become obsessed with the t-shirt. We use it for a purpose and we take it off when we want to or when we are done using it for the day.

Therefore, if we looked at thoughts more as things that we can use for what we choose, just like the coffee cup, or the t-shirt we can take them off when we don’t want to think them anymore, just like the t-shirt.

Or in kind, like the laptop we can use our thoughts to formulate sentences, paragraphs, or even entire stories just like a laptop and its programs have the power to do!!

You get the idea here. USE your thoughts (the things) for your highest good and stop using them when they are no longer serving your or causing you pain.

CHOOSE New Thoughts!

The easiest way to pivot your thoughts is to divert them to new ones…. just like things. If you were wearing a t-shirt and spilled something on it, you would go and change it!

So change your thoughts to new ones!

Here is a link to one of all-time favorite posts I did about changing your thoughts:

And more from my “Thougths are Things” Collection that you might enJOY and find helpful.

I hope that you found this helpful. I really enJOYed it myself and as always surprised myself while writing it. I really do believe we are just channels when we write, paint, do art, sing, or whatever form of creative art we choose. It’s fun stuff and I hope you do more of that too! 🙂

Have a great day everyone!

Worry Not…

“If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today.”

– E. Joseph Cossman

Do you just love that quote like I do? Right?

How much time do we lose in life to worry? Whatever the answer that comes to mind, it’s too much!

It reminds me of the saying about not letting thoughts live rent free in our heads. If they are not positive thoughts that are serving us, they have to move out! Same for worry. Sorry, I don’t need you here in my life and head.

What do I need you might ask? How about filling that space with peace, comfort, JOY, happiness, trust, HOPE, laughter, and more?

Now that is a better plan isn’t it? 🙂 And if we know that we probably won’t remember what we were worrying about last year on this day, we can see how unimportant a lot of worry really is.

All we have is the here and now. We hear that all the time but it really is true. Yesterday does not exist (not here anymore) and tomorrow, as we know, never comes and is not promised to anyone so let us live each moment in as much peace and JOY as we can and this means SORRY WORRY BUT YOU HAVE TO GO! 🙂

Living Fearlessly, love, worry, Worry Less

Worry Less & 𝐿❤𝓋𝑒 𝑀🌺𝓇𝑒

“We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable.It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives”. ~Maya Angelou 

Anytime we are in fear we are not in the frequency of ‘Love’. Worry stems from fear. There are two emotions that all others emotions spring from and these are ‘Fear’ and ‘Love’.

Worry is from the side of FEAR and when we worry about others we project fear and worry onto them as well. Sometimes we worry about things that might happen and this also just causes unnecessary fearful thoughts.

Energy in Motion

The very BEST thing that we can do for ourselves or our loved ones, is to try our best to think thoughts of 𝐿💗𝓋𝑒 and well-being.🌞 And it is interesting to note that E-Motions are ˜”°•.˜”°• Energy In Motion. •°”˜.•°”˜ Energy in motion is a powerful force. We want that force to be positive and conducive.

Think about this for a minute and see if you agree with me. Was there a time or is there a time now when someone that cares about you has told you that they are or were worried about you? Or have they constantly nagged at you about something? How do you or did you feel?

Did you feel heavy, sad, or remorseful? I bet you felt some form of these fear based emotions.

The best thing we can do to support others is to do it through Love. It is okay to want the best for others but there are ways to support and offer to ‘hold space’ for someone that is better than worrying and thinking fearful thoughts.

I can remember the exact moments in my life when people have told me that they were worried about me and why. I loved these people dearly but at times these moments felt like sucker punches to my soul. I have also realized that I too have done this to others so even in writing this I am reminded to try harder to be more loving and supportive in my thinking and approaches when sharing concern.

Worry Breeds Worry

The very best thing we can do for anyone is to hold them in the light and to see them through the eyes of Love. Worry breeds worry and fear breeds fear. It is a fact. Let us choose Love and have Love attract more Love and Light and Healing.

I hope you have found this introspective or helpful and know that I send YOU, the reader, thoughts of 𝐿💙𝒱𝐸 and HOPE and Courage and whatever other positive thoughts that hold frequencies that stem from 𝐿💙𝒱𝐸 and are directed YOUR way. 🙂
