If I’m anxious and I pinpoint where I lost my peace, that will usually expose the lie I believed. -Bill Johnson.
Our thought life is just as important to us as our physical world because thoughts can manifest into the physical. Throughout my recovery it has been essential to think as positive as possible(or sometimes not at all) I found that what I read,listened to,and believed in had a big affect on how I felt. I now avoid or simply don’t do the things that have proven to be toxic and bring me down. Many times I’ve had to block out the bad things people have said in order to continue with a hopeful and determined spirit. Whatever brings you down or dashes your hope is usually a lie. Sometimes you have to put on “earmuffs,” and continue on with what you know to be true. I’ve found that you simply have to ignore the snakes in your apple tree because they only serve to bring you down. There are many forms a snake can take. It could be your Doctor, a stranger,an article that focuses on the negative,internet forums(strangers) or even a coworker. I have learned the hard way to avoid using Google too much or especially any internet forums! As it turns out both will either give you false information or seriously bring you down. The solution? Simply immerse yourself in what is light and steer clear of any darkness. My recovery has been a fight for my life in many ways so I choose to avoid what could bring me down. As a general observation it seems the majority of the population will take from you(in the physical or spiritual) so stick by those that know how to give and lift you up. As I think We all know, life is just too short to let someone(or something) steal your precious time with doubt,worry,fear,or grudges. Going through life without encountering these things is nearly impossible. However, it is possible to choose to not let it effect you. As it turns out when dealing with these things, getting angry actually helps. At some point when your sick of these things trying to bring you down, it’s time to fight back. Thwart those thoughts, keep good company, and by all means don’t” Google it.”
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=the+power+of+words Oddly enough not everything that has power is physical, your words can pack a punch too. Speak with words what you want to bring into existence. Were creative beings, therefore our words create our realities. This gives validity to the belief that speaking to your plants will help them grow. We are just as organic and words can help us grow as well. Rather then spitting poison darts at others or even yourself, watch what you say, think,and take in from others because just as these can build you up, they can also tear you down. We all need to learn how to speak life into ourselves, and each other. Because a positive force propels you upward not downward.
