Living in fear, doubt and worry leads to anxiety, then to depression, then to physical sickness.
Being in the present moment and focusing on gratitude, dreams and goals have helped me cure anxiety and depression, and I’ve read living this way has cured mental and physical sickness in others.
To imagine living in a world where everyone was kind and lived like this, it seems would be the answer to many problems that are going on in the world.
When we worry, doubt and fear, it creates stress in our bodies and our bodies then create cells and hormones that cause sickness. Worry and fear are mental sicknesses.
The more we worry, doubt and fear, the more it is embedded into us.
We can change that by intentionally choosing what to think about. Being present and noticing what’s going on around us helps stop all the negative worried thinking. Take it further and create a dream for yourself and visualize it as often as possible. Further still, think of all the things in your life to be grateful for.
When we are at peace and in a good frame of mind, our bodies are creating healthy cells and hormones which enhance our health rather than deteriorate it with worry, doubt and fear.
The more of us that learn to live at peace like this, the more it will be learned by others.
You may tell a few people that are close to you, or write about it and some of those people will learn through your example.
They see the difference in you so are willing to try it.
Yes, we have things in our lives that need attention. For me though, I’d obsess about those things to the point all that I’d do is worry and stress all day long. For most of us, there’s always going to be some problem going on in our lives – it’s just life. The solution to a problem will not come from worry and stress. The solution is more likely to come when we are calm and the way to calmness is being in the present moment and gratitude. When we add in visualizing our dreams, it gives us a big sense of joy to be headed towards something and more likely solutions will come for our problems.
I’m not saying to ignore your problems and be happy skipping through the flower fields. What I am saying is that many of us never learned to use our minds in a way that will help us and our loved ones. Many of us learned worry, doubt and fear. It’s a program that we run by. We can change it. If I am doing it so can you. I was the queen of worry and I learned it from my family. Being the queen of worry led me to a dark place that I never want to be in again so I work at it every day. One thing I do to keep me learning about this is watch or listen to Joe Dispenza and Bob Proctor every single day on Youtube. They both teach this and I highly recommend learning from them. I have committed to this indefinitely to keep me focused on it.
My life is turning around because of it. I do not feel dread at what horrible things may happen each day like I was feeling, even though a beloved family member has cancer and another one with depression. Since I have been able to calm myself through being present and gratitude, the better state of mind that I’m in leads to ideas on actions I can take that will help the situation and the situation is slowly getting better. Ideas to improve my productivity at work have came to me in the calm state of mind and I’ve applied them now being on the verge of a raise. The dark depression is gone – I no longer cry every day and want to sleep. I’m excited to see things improving and can feel in my energy that many other wonderful things are coming.
I have only been committed to this for a little over a month so these changes are the result of that time frame. If you look back at my posts you may think it was longer, but it was sporadic and I wasn’t sticking to and committed to changing – I thought the work had been done and I could relax. No, the old worry program was very strong and would rear it’s head at the next problem and my efforts at improving were forgotten in seconds. I was up and down until I finally realized I had to commit, keep myself focused and re-train myself to use my mind productively.
I hope this helps you in some way and I’d love to hear your thoughts. Have you been able to change your life in a similar way or experienced any of this?
Here are a few of the products available with my art printed on them (by clicking an item you like, it will take you to the page where it’s available). They’d make great gifts to yourself or someone you love and would help support my dream of becoming a full-time writer and artist. Any purchase would be SO appreciated, but if you don’t want to or can’t, that’s totally fine. Just stopping by and reading my blog is a huge support.
