In daily life there are so many things that we encounter, see, hear and even say that make us feel uneasy. They just don´t sit right with us.
One of the most valuable assets you have is to look at things differently, from a new angle. Reframe it. Shift the perception, and your perspective will change. You then see the broader picture. Reframing takes a conscious intention to look at things in another way, and then the possibilities are endless!
When you understand that how you feel about anything has an emotional connection, which influences the way you react, you can change the way you feel instantly.
And the most important thing at any time is-how you feel!
How you feel is where your power lies.
Have you ever seen a picture you liked but thought it would look better in a different frame? The same thing happens when you put your thoughts in a new frame. They may remain the same, but you change the perception and the perspective, which changes the way you feel. These thoughts are yours, and you are the one who has given them meaning, so you are the one with the power to change them.
Pivot Point:-There is always another way of looking at the world
Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could control everything happening around you?
Well, I have news for you, that will never happen, but, I have even better news for you - you can always control how you react (re-act) to whatever is happening to you and around you.
You can change the way you feel about it, and this will change the way you think and behave.
You have a choice, and it is your responsibility to yourself to recognise your
response-Ability and become response-Able.
There is always a choice.
The emotions you feel, lead to thoughts which are often things you are remembering from past experiences. If it is a good memory, and you like it, that's great, keep doing it and it will lead to more good-feeling thoughts and experiences.
Have you ever had a message on your phone or computer saying "Updates available - restart now to install" ? If you do not install the update, you risk your computer crashing. What are you going to do? The answer for most of us is simple, install the update, and our computer continues to run proficiently. Your subconscious belief system can be compared to your computer programs.
The emotions you are experiencing, along with the thoughts you are thinking, are often old beliefs (programs running) based on the past that no longer works for you- now. When you take the time to notice them, you can update those beliefs (programs) with your new points of view. You do not need to review the old beliefs; you just have to recognise that it is an old belief and update or overwrite it. The more often you do this, the easier it will get, and before you know it, you will find yourself no longer re-acting and re-activating those beliefs. You are then response-able and have response-ability.
Catch yourself in the thought; it may be something like:
Be kind to yourself.
And, if all else fails - repeat to yourself-
“This too will pass.”
