Guiding Thought

The world awaits my expression!  I am here to align with my purpose, participate with life, and share my Self. With each moment I spend cultivating My Own Loving Presence to be attuned with my Inner Divine Mind’s expression, the more I encounter the Perfect Spiritual Idea in my life activities. I choose to be aware! I choose to understand! I choose to know! I choose Life.

 

Sharing

I’ve been spending a lot of time really working hard to keep my mind on “good thoughts”. I used to have a sign in my car that read, “think good thoughts”, as a daily reminder. But there is a difference between reminding myself to think good thoughts and actually maintaining my mind in a constant flow of good thoughts.

It’s that constant flow that I have been working on a LOT lately, using mantra, kirtan, meditations, books, these Journeys. This is what my phone, playlists, YouTube, and headphones are for these days: keeping a constant flow of good thoughts going into my ears, into my head, into my mind, into my consciousness.

The thing is, there is this one area in my life that seems to be a supply of “negative”-thoughts (negative=destructive, “lower”, not life-affirming, critical, judgmental). I’m in this space of physical reality, in which the situation is not something I can easily, readily change (though I am working on it); it’s not something I want consciously; it’s not something I feel like I have any control over. It’s more something I am enduring, something I am aware of as a life-lesson (hopefully!), something I just keep telling myself, “This too shall pass.”

[Let me note, that this thought, “…the situation is not something I can easily, readily change” is limiting me and holding me back…and so, I choose to change it, and declare: This situation is transforming as I write this. The negativity is transmuting into love and light, my highest good is here, now.]

Every time I let my guard down and stop thinking good thoughts, the negative thoughts about this situation seep in. It surprises me how much I can feel it! It’s like I can feel the cloud of negativity descend, feel my body slump. But the negative thoughts just arrive…and sometimes…I let them spin me for several minutes before I reign in my mind and re-start to think good thoughts.

I have become very protective of my mind, of my thoughts. I have been experiencing how fragile I can be, how easy it is to slip and let my mind be overrun with random thoughts, many of which spin into this negative area.

I love this Guiding Thought: The world awaits my expression!  I am here to align with my purpose, participate with life, and share my Self. With each moment I spend cultivating My Own Loving Presence to be attuned with my Inner Divine Mind’s expression, the more I encounter the Perfect Spiritual Idea in my life activities. I choose to be aware! I choose to understand! I choose to know! I choose Life.

How life-affirming! How Self-affirming!

I love thinking good thoughts. They lift my heart, they lift my energy, my mind feels free and uncluttered. I am learning how much it matters to think good thoughts, to guard my mind against negativity, to maintain a constant flow of positive thoughts, and an equally constant transmutation of negative thoughts.

Imagine where I’ll be when I am beyond this particular situation, and all the energy I am using for protection and guarding my mind against this situation, will be freed to create and flow into something stellar and amazing!
