Stressed? Try this Quick Hack!

A Handy Go-To for Dealing with Stress

One of the things I have learned about putting things out to the universe or praying or whatever you want to call it, is that it works but there are ways that work better than others.

Today I will share my favorite go-to prayer that I use often and share with others often.

We all go through stressful situations in life. It’s not a matter of if we will, we will!!! Count on it! It is how we transition through these times that calls for the best use of our time and energy.

So without further adieu here is my go-to:

“Thank you God/Universe/Jesus/Source/You Fill in the Blank/ for already solving this problem for me.” And then you let it go! What we hold in our field with fear and dread stays attached to us and attracts more! This is why you want to declare that the problem or situation has been resolved and do so with Gratitude! Β When you say it, put in lots of grateful feelings along with the words and mean it! And then you release it!

How do you let your problem go? You do whatever it takes to shift your attention off of it.  Go to a movie, read a positive book, watch a video that raises your vibe, talk to a friend about ‘something else’, not the problem, tell a new story about how things ARE working out for you, etc. etc. Do whatever you must do to detach and shift your energetic and emotional attention to the matter. And then you let the Source that you believe in, solve your problem. It is important to note, that your problem cannot be solved if you keep putting out the energies that are associated with what you don’t want!

So in a nutshell we say the prayer acting as if the problem has already been solved, we do so with mucho gratitude and then we let it go!

I hope you find this helpful and also helpful to know that we all go through stressful times in life. You are not alone.

In Love & Light

Dealing with Muddy Waters

muddy water

One of my favorite quotes is from Alan Watts “Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”

How often do we tend to stir up situations when the water is muddy and make them worse by giving them attention and energy? Lest we forget another great quote: β€œWhere Attention goes Energy flows; Where Intention goes Energy flows!”
James Redfield

There are many reasons we do this but some that come to mind are:

1) We over-analyze and read more into situations than we need to. For example, maybe someone did not react in a way you expected or they said something you found to be off. Maybe they are having a bad day or they are sick or depressed or whatever, it matters not. We don’t have to react or stir up the waters unless we CHOOSE to. This is where the quote comes in… ‘Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone”. When we leave it alone it can give US peace and clear the waters perhaps.

2) Our egos jump in and we need to ‘be right’ or to feel we have control of a situation. πŸ™‚ What about that saying “Do I want to be ‘right’ or ‘HAPPY’? Choosing happy means you let the waters clear and do not give it energy or attention.

Take a look at the picture in this blog post and perhaps use it as a tangible reminder to consciously CHOOSE how you react to ‘muddy water’ situations. Do you take your stick and stir it up and make it worse? Or do you send the situation Love and let it rest? Choices, choices. We always have choices. πŸ™‚
