It’s Your Choice

So Now What?
Everyday we are engulfed with issues, challenges and problems. And each circumstance we find ourselves in gives us a choice.
We can choose to be angry, petty, and annoyed by what comes our way or we can choose to move through the events of our day with grace, love and compassion – both for ourselves and those around us.
If your daily practice, training and rehearsal includes rage and impatience then you will need to find a way to break that habit.
You’ll need to start practicing and training with the beauty that is your very soul.
Key #1: Awareness. It’s easier to stop a run away train once you know you’re in one.
Key #2: Halt. You will need to terminate with extreme prejudice the habits, thoughts and emotions that cause the anger and bitterness you feel when triggered by certain events during your day.
Key #3: Toolbox. You will need a pre-packed toolbox of techniques and methods to halt the thoughts and emotions you don’t want and create the thoughts and emotions you do want.
This toolbox may include techniques like EFT or processes like The Sedona Method and Byrne Katie’s The Work or the releasing technique I teach The Mind Mastery Blueprint.
You can start writing it out, physical exercise and movement, laughing (watch some funny YouTube videos if possible), talking with a friend or mastermind group, and/or music that you know will uplift you.
It’s your life; it’s your responsibility. If you find yourself in a state of anger, depression or anxiety you will need to find a way to change it.
Accountability for your life lies only with you.
Some days may be easier than others but you can do it. How badly do you want the life you dream of?
It’s starts with your thoughts and emotions.
Move closer to spirit and you will move closer to your perfect world.
