The Power of Your Mind – No, Really the Power of Your Mind

Focus the Mind

You have a problem. (How do I know this? We All have problems or at least we think we do!!!)

Let’s say your problem is your mood. You want to be happy, but you can’t get out of negative feelings – frustration, anger, sadness, etc. You wonder:

Is it lack of sleep? Bad food? My time of the month? Too much caffeine, right? That comment from my co-worker, spouse, friend, etc.?

No, no, no, no, and no.

These could have been triggers, but it’s not the reason why you’re in a pickle right now.

The reason is the habits of your mind. You can have the best of intentions and desires to change your mood (or attain whatever solution needed for your problem), but until you change your habit of mind, you just won’t get there.

But there is Great News! You can definitely overcome this! How? The power of your mind! Duh!

What to Do When Fear Creeps In On a Good Day

Good things are coming
I just learned this today. See if this rings a bell for you.

Ever have a day when things are suddenly going well in your life? The sun is shining. You’re meeting your goals. No technology road bumps. People are letting you go in traffic. The world is generally shining on you and you are riding that wave!

And then you do that thing.

You suddenly think “This is strange. I wonder when the other shoe will drop? When will stuff start going wrong – like it usually does?”

Guess what that is going to get you? Yup, a shoe dropping out of the sky right on your head – allowing you to say “Ah, there you are. I was expecting you.”

The bottom line is if you look for the shoe, you’re going to find the shoe.

There’s a better way to handle great moments in your life, a way that is much more empowering and which will manifest more of the good stuff that you’re experiencing.

Live in This Moment Right Now

typical holland blurr

If you are human, you likely spend a lot of time worrying about the future. Not necessarily the far future, but the close future.

  • I have so many things to do.
  • How can I get them all done?
  • Will they all get done?

This happens constantly, so much so that you stop noticing it. The problem is this habit robs you. It robs you of energy and it robs you of bliss in this current moment. You’re not alone. This is a human habit.

But you can ease this burden. You can establish new habits that bring more light (and productivity) into your life.

Here’s the cure:

Are You Living the Life You Really Want?

Living the Life of Your Dreams

Are you living YOUR life, the life you want to live? Are you so busy that you constantly “don’t have time?” To whom and to what are you giving your time? What beliefs drive your actions? Have you ever thought about this? Does life have to be this hectic? Do you want a different life, but don’t believe it’s possible?

How would you feel if you could have a different life, the one you want to live? Would you dare to take action (or less action)? What if you knew that once you climbed the hill and descended into the valley of your changes, that you could experience a more fulfilling and joyous life? Let’s take a peak over the hill together…

Cancer is Not a Death Sentence

Life is Good!

Life is Good!

(My personal background with this topic: I had breast cancer and a double mastectomy back in July 2014. I felt the fear, but I have strongly moved on from that fear and you can too!)

If you or a loved one has just gotten a cancer diagnosis, I want to reach out to you with this article to let you know you don’t have to be afraid. Of course you will be in the beginning. We are conditioned to fear cancer because we think it means death. But, I want you to know that you have enormous hope for a high quality, healthy, even long, life in your future if you want that and are willing to listen to the message from your body and take action to heal it.

Free Meditation Flash Cards

buddha mindfulness meditation

Meditation is supposed to be all about simplifying your focus and calming the mind. And yet, even in my approach to meditation I find myself complicating it. I think, “Which meditation strategy should I use today?” And my mind starts racing. Not exactly the way to begin meditating. Since I’ve been reading some great books on mediation, I’ve learned several strategies. So I decided to take the decision making out of it and make up some flash cards. This way I can shuffle them and just pick one and be on my way to mindfulness. After putting them together I thought it would be nice to share it with you all.
