I don’t like to say this but the other day I was having some of those feelings. The icky type like low self esteem, insecurity, jealousy, comparing myself to others, you know what I mean. (Yes, I had PMS, surprise surprise, right?) Well I could only put up with feeling crappy for so long before I finally pulled out my tools to do something about it. We really are the creators of our own reality after all, why wouldn’t I change this?? So I lay down on the floor with a pad of paper and began doing some writing exercises to work my way into feeling better by reprogramming my thoughts. Soon after I was able to work my way up to writing the following statement:
“I am a strong, sexy, beautiful and special person. There is no one like me. There can be no comparison.”
Wow, I felt better! It’s good to be reminded that I can change my frame of mind any time I want. I can change my life instantly just by changing the way I view it. I can change how I feel on any subject. I am the Master of my fate and the Captain of my soul and I’m going to enjoy the hell out of this ride!!!
P.S. I also wrote “I am a Hot Sexy Bitch” which didn’t feel so bad either 😉 Give it a try, it feels great! And, you won’t have to go through the silly embarrassment of admitting it to the world in a blog either! haha
So if you ever have a subject you want to change your view of or your feelings about, which as we know is the only way to allow anything to change, try writing or talking yourself into feeling better about it. Here is a very easy exercise:
Write a statement of how the subject currently feels. For example: “I hate bugs, they torment me. They are everywhere and I feel powerless to get them out of my house. Their bites are so annoying and they are dirty and gross in my kitchen!” Then slowly begin writing statements that feel a tiny bit better, you don’t have to take the leap all at once. Remember you’re reprogramming your mind. Examples:
“While I may hate them, I suppose there are worse things than bugs”
“At least I don’t live where huge rodent-size bugs live!”
“Ew at least there are no rodents in my house!”
“I know that I’m really not a victim of anything, certainly not insects”
“I know that bugs do some good things like, um, spiders eat other bugs!”
“Oo at least I don’t have spiders in my house! They are outside and I really appreciate that”
“I guess I don’t get bitten all that often, and it probably only annoys me when I’m already annoyed by something else!”
Each thought feels a tiny bit better than the last. In this way you slowly ease your own inner tension about something, letting it soften and soon your are writing about what a sexy bitch you are and you are ready to rule the world!
