This has been the biggest revelation of all in my positivity feast so far.
Working as a hypnotherapist and coach, I know all too well the importance of letting things go, but did not realise that I was not taking my own advice!
I have now finally realised that by flooding my mind with good feeling thoughts I have begun letting go of the habit of thinking bad feeling thoughts.
It truly is amazing!
I learnt in India that one of the most important things to learn in order to be happy, is to live life without attachment to the outcome. Something I knew was a good idea in theory but the reality is that as a western woman, I am attached to the outcome of lots of things!
My job is to help people learn to be happy and healthy and of course I want a good outcome for everyone I work with.
But the lesson I have learnt is to not take the outcome personally.
I teach skills, pass on my knowledge and help people the best I can, then what they do with that is up to them.
I can do nothing more than my best for each and every client.
I had some more personal learning about this earlier this year, a situation tried to teach me this lesson for quite a few months but I was so caught up in my own ingrained habits of fear-based thinking, that I was clinging on to the outcome and was set on a path bound for (what to me felt like) failure.
So, I made a change, I decided to focus on making myself feel good every day no matter what & in doing so, I let go of those patterns of bad feeling thoughts & finally let go of the outcome.
The outcome I feared happened and it turns out that was the best thing. More and more I feel that life unfolds exactly as it should, and the whole experience played out as it did to teach me the most about myself.
I realised that I am the only one who can or will ever make ME happy, and when I am truly happy, regardless of the conditions around me, others who are also on the path of happiness will be drawn to me and I to them.
All is well in my world!
My goodness, I love this stuff!
I thought I knew about the power of the mind, but it is only with personal experiences, breakthroughs and revelations can you really understand.
I can’t wait for the next!
