The most recent research reveals that the number of thoughts you have each day number more like this: 6,200
> THE STUDY <
Well, it probably means that you have a working brain that can think thoughts and be aware of feelings, too.
And you have a brain that is working enough so that you can read these words...and possibly understand the meaning of the words.
So, you can do what I am going to tell you to do.
What is that?
When you become aware that you are thinking thoughts and/or feeling feelings, I want you to notice that you are thinking thoughts and feeling feelings.
In that moment when you "wake-up" and catch yourself actually noticing you are thinking a thought and/or feeling some emotion there is an opportunity to make a choice.
This choice "thing" is a big deal. It is huge, stupendous, powerful...life-changing.
You MUST acknowledge to yourself that you have caught yourself in the act of thinking and/or feeling.
Now you make a choice. You get to choose what you will think. The next thoughts you have will be the ones you decide to entertain in your own mind.
You get to consciously choose what you will think next.This such a big deal.
For the few remaining moments, before your mind submerges itself back into unconscious thinking and/or feeling, you will be in control of your mind.
You will be able to notice the options available to yourself. And you will most certainly notice the habitual thoughts that want to come back into your mind.
But you get to choose.
You see, for that little moment, you have surfaced into conscious awareness. You are aware of being the thinker of your own thoughts and the feeler of your own feelings.
Now you choose what comes next.What thoughts do you want to think?
And then you can sort-of taste what that one word thought feels like to you.
NOTICE what thoughts are provoked by the one-word thought...and where they seem to be leading you.
Do you like it?
Is that how you want your mind to be occupied?
And this begs the question: "What should I insert into my mind when I become aware that I am thinking and/or feeling?"
There is a suggested list of what to consciously choose to think about at the end of this article.
PLUS, you can get a head-start by going through this how-to gamechanger:
> THINK EFFECTIVELY <
You will probably begin to notice how often your mind is taken over by your own thinking and/or feeling. You are gone, and the thoughts and feelings take over your awareness. They keep coming and coming...until that brief little moment you catch yourself being aware that you are thinking and/or feeling.
The more you practice the simple three-step method of self-awareness, the stronger you will make your mind's ability to consciously notice it's own activity.
Your life will change according to the thoughts and/or feelings you choose to think and/or feel. You will get to pay attention to what you want to pay attention to...inside your mind.
ONE: When you notice that you are thinking and/or feeling, go to step TWO.
TWO: Acknowledge you are now aware that you are thinking thoughts and feeling feelings.
THREE: Choose your next thought.
Great, but what about Pervasive Negativity Bias?
Yes, that is a problem, isn't it?
It takes EFFORT to change the thoughts and/or feelings that you are habitually rolling with.
That is why this tiny little moment of catching yourself thinking and/or feeling is such a great opportunity to reboot what you are doing with your mind...and heart.
There are some specific ways you can get better at waking-up inside your own mind. The best ones are simple and easy to do. Here are some links to complete "how-to" methods for you to use.
> DO THIS ONE RIGHT NOW, IT WORKS! <
> THIS ONE IS ALSO SUPER GREAT FANTASTIC! <
IF you practice one of these simple methods, you will get a whole bunch of other benefits, too. So...nothing to lose, everything to gain.
As always, it is your choice. You get to choose.
That is a wonderful form of freedom, isn't it?
