I fill my mind and heart with Love, aligning with the Light of Truth. Steadfast and focused on my own Loving Presence, I live in the peace of fulfillment of my own Divine Identity.
There are days when I like to dissect the Guiding Thoughts, breaking them down word by word to see what they are made of (so to speak). There are days when I like to read them somewhat superficially, repeating them without much thought. There are days when the Guiding Thoughts feel confusing and I feel like it takes a lot of effort to understand even the most basic phrasing. There are days when the Guiding Thought acts like a guided visualization and I see/experience the words. There are days when reading the Guiding Thought seems to open a channel within me and I can feel energy within me moving in a new or different way.
I am thankful that today the Guiding Thought felt like a guided visualization and helped me to shift my energy. Guided visualizations can be very effective, even if they are not done perfectly. I was not in any state to think about the Light of Truth, my own Loving Presence, or my Divine Identity perfectly today. It’s been a day of (I hate to admit) worry and anxiety—and I did not even realize it, until I did the Guiding Thought/Visualization.
After about 5 minutes of the visualization, I “saw” the state that I was in. I understood how unproductive, ineffective, and self-indulgent worry and anxiety are. There is nothing to do, there is nothing to think, there is nothing to want; there is nothing that my own Divine Identity can allow through me when I am not open to allowing Its Presence.
Interestingly: I just wrote about this process two days ago (though I did not talk about it as a process, nor did I put it in this order). 1) I was spinning. Boy was I spinning! And the thing is, I knew it, but didn’t really recognize it. I knew it, but I was not aware. 2) I became aware. Doing the Guiding thought gave me a contrast: it showed me what I was doing and gave me an alternative. The alternative gave me a choice: what kind of thoughts do I want? 3) I changed my thoughts with the help of the Guiding Thought. I did not have to. I could have become aware of what my mind was doing, without changing my thoughts. But, when the contrast is that clear, I see no reason to stay in an anxious spinning state of mind.
