How many times have you heard someone say you need to think more positive.
Although you may agree with that, the problems comes down to how do we do that.
I like to think of it like learning to ride a bicycle. By repeating the process over and over, our muscle memory takes over and we can ride a bicycle easily without thinking about it.
The same repetitive thoughts that are actively engaged in positive thoughts can become automatic, also. When we learn to ride a bike, we put our concentration on the task at hand. When we concentrate on positive thoughts, they can become spontaneous, too
I have been listening to Joe Dispenza recently. He has been researching positive thoughts and the impact it has on our mental and physical health. I like that his research is scientifically based showing negative thoughts are addictive. The good news is that there is a way to change these grooves in the brain. We can train our minds to see a more positive present and future.
I have been meditating for the past 12 years and see that my life has become easier by being able to stop negative thoughts and look towards the positive. My relationship to my friends, family, and money has improved greatly in challenging situations.
Learning the simple technique of pausing can be life changing. We are able to respond wisely when we allow the mind to reset and see things more clearly.
The feelings are real but often the story is not.
See for yourself, experiment with cultivating more positive thoughts and look at the results.
