This morning, I woke up to a feeling of sadness, of slight depression. I didn’t want to get up, even though my first “task” of the day (after journalling and feeding the cats) was to go out to a delicious breakfast in a hotel! Nothing too depressing about that.
I lay in bed trying to pinpoint where the sad feelings were coming from, and realised that I was starting to feel worse – now I felt twinges of fear as well.
But there is nothing in my life to be afraid of. I probably have the least fearful, most relaxed lifestyle of anyone I know!
Then it dawned on me. Yet again, my thoughts had tricked me into believing them. Yet again, they had trapped into analysing them, taking them seriously, giving them meaning, making them RELEVANT.
When actually – they’re just thoughts. They’re not real. They’re not the truth.
Sure, sometimes “Thoughts are things” but not these thoughts-with-a-small-t, not unless I MAKE them into “THINGS” by giving them my attention, watering them and fussing over them until they grow like Jack’s beanstalk and temporarily take over my mind.
In fact, I hadn’t needed to even let them get as far as they did; my FEELINGS were guiding me the second I opened my eyes that my thoughts were taking me in the wrong direction, away from alignment and flow and sucking me into the swamp of believing I need somehow to be “fixed”, “improved” or “developed” into something I’m not currently.
Not that I’m against growth and expansion and moving forwards – but not at the expense of believing I’m flawed and inadequate as I am.
A thought – my thought – is the only thing that can keep me from being in this moment, enjoying who I am and where I am and what I’m doing right now.
A thought – my thought – is the only thing that stands between me and alignment with Source.
The only person who gets to think my thoughts is me. No one else has the power to think them for me, or to decide for me where I put my attention.
And the never-fail, always-reliable sign that my thoughts are going in a direction that doesn’t serve me are my feelings. When I’m feeling sad, depressed, inadequate or afraid, my thoughts aren’t to be trusted. They’re not telling me the Truth, which is that in my natural state I am totally aligned with Source, living my purpose, happy and content.
This is how I can help you get focused and taking action on what matters TO YOU right now. This isn’t for everyone, but if you’re ready to get serious about living THIS life to the fullest, whether you feel you’ve got stuck in your relationship, your work, or in the choices you’ve been making in your life generally, then it might well be for you.
I can help you get UNstuck, get present and start moving forwards again immediately, in the direction YOU choose.
In less than a month you’ll be clear about what really matters to you, you’ll have a plan and you’ll already be taking action towards living the life you were born for. You’ll get unlimited email access to me for one month to talk about, decide on and plan for whatever you want, whenever you want and as often as you want, plus a bonus 1 hour Skype or phone call that alone is worth hundreds of dollars, all for a ridiculously low price.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me (Isobel Phillips) on Facebook and I’ll give you all the details. But do it NOW! Because this is private, one-to-one coaching I can only take on 10 people a month – and one place has already been snapped up before I could even tell you about it!
P.S. Why email? Because as several of you have mentioned, it can be difficult to get the privacy you need for a regular Skype or phone call. With email you still get personal one-on-one coaching and you can pour your heart out in absolute confidence that no one can overhear you, and you can do it at whatever time suits you, as often as you need to. If this is for you, you’ll know it – PM or email me TODAY to secure your spot this month!
