How to

How To Relieve that Knot in Your Stomach

So, it's happened again.  Sometimes I wake up in the morning feeling awesome and ready to go.  The world is at my feet and I am the boss of my life. 

But then sometimes, I don't quiet get ahead of negative thoughts.  They creep in one at a time, and when they realize the coast is clear- they flood in.  All before my feet have even it the floor.  

 

1.  The Satisfaction List

The Little Mind is saying ___________ (note the negative thought).

Is there anything satisfying about this topic?

[List items about this topic that feel satisfying.]

Is there anything satisfying about this very moment?

[List items about this topic that feel satisfying.]

Is there anything satisfying about your life in general?

[List items about this topic that feel satisfying.]

2.  Mantras

These are some of my personal favorites reach for when the negative thoughts creep in.

  • Life is supposed to be fun.

  • Everything is always working out for me.

  • There is no future and there is no past. There is just the present moment.

  • Happily ever after.

  • I surrender all to pure positive energy.

3. Visualizations

One. Imagine a thread wrapped around the part of your body that feels tense and affected by negative thoughts.   In your mind, see yourself unwrapping the thread from the part that feels tense. 

For me, it is my solar plexus.  I can feel a tightness in my stomach that associates with dread, fear and anxiety.  

Two. I grabbed this from Abraham Hicks.  For super-fans of this teacher, you might recognize this analogy.  

I imagine a cork in a pond of water.  I am swimming in the water with it.  Abraham's describes negative emotion has holding the cork under the water.  But when you let go or surrender, your cork naturally floats to the top of the water. 

Visualize the cork as your thoughts on this topic, and imagine the feeling of surrender and see the cork float to the top.
