#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Acknowledging your thoughts and detaching from your negative beliefs...

As you go around your daily activities you may notice that for some reason you are not feeling great - irritation or anger or hurt sets in. This is your indication that there is an active story (either consciously or sub-consciously) swirling around in your mind. The belief in that story is what is causing your emotions.

See if you can try to get a glimpse of what that story really is and do not fight your thoughts. Do not blame yourself for those thoughts being there. Do not struggle to replace them and cling to the notion that they should never come back. RELAX!! BE GENTLE! SIMPLY OBSERVE the thoughts for a few seconds. What is the full story behind those thoughts?

Say to yourself "Oh! now that's an interesting thought/story." "That was a random thought." "Wow, that thought is colorful." " Wow I have a healthy imagination." etc... When you change your thinking like this you are acknowledging that the thoughts are there but you are distancing yourself from the BELIEF in that thought. You are starting to DEFUSE the story - making it less clear or solid. It's only thoughts that you believe to be true that cause your emotions - reduce/defuse the belief and you reduce the associated emotions.

WHEN YOU STOP BELIEVING IN A NEGATIVE THOUGHT IT WILL NO LONGER TRIGGER A NEGATIVE EMOTION! It may take some time to start believing a new set of thoughts. BE PATIENT!

If you do this regularly and gently you will start to see a shift in your mood.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation I have said over and over again that thoughts that you believe to be true (your beliefs) always cause your emotions; good beliefs > good feelings; negative beliefs > negative feelings. These beliefs are active at the moment you have any emotions AND they can be conscious or subconscious. Sometimes it may not be that obvious what we are currently believing especially when we may have active subconscious beliefs.

I have also said that your feelings always trigger an action; an action that you think (at that time) will make you continue to have a wanted feeling or change your unwanted feeling to positive.

So, how do you change your beliefs? LOOK FOR PROOF! If you are searching to believe that you are lovable then write down things that you have done or said that demonstrate the validity of this new belief. If you are looking to dispute a negative belief then come up with examples to PROVE these negative beliefs are false. Take these proofs and recite them to yourself as affirmations or look at yourself in the mirror and say them or meditate using them as mantras or write them down over and over again for 5 minutes etc... After a few days, come up with even more examples of proofs!

When you conduct this exercise on a regular basis you will start to shift your beliefs and thus your feelings and thus your actions. You will be amazed to see how efficient this exercise is to do and the results you will get.

Be patient with yourself as you may have years of beliefs to undo. Don't worry it just takes a little time and consistency. When you start to feel better DO NOT STOP; continue on to really solidify these into your new mindset - your Optimistic Brain.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Change... Many of us have a problem with change. When someone wants to change something we worked on at work for example, we get irritated. When someone wants to change how we look we get upset or hurt. When we see a change coming in your lives it can cause stress (which is fear). There are many ways change comes into our lives. One thing is certain - EVERYTHING CHANGES on a regular basis.

There are 2 ways we interpret change that make us feel negative...

1. FEAR: We fear that ANY change to our current circumstances will lead to a more negative situation. When this happens we dig in our heals and resist the change. Whenever you are fearful you are experiencing a lack of trust in something. What are you not trusting? Perhaps you are not trusting that you can learn something new. Perhaps you do not trust your abilities? etc... Start with coming up with Optimistic self talk which addresses your trust issue .... trusting yourself and your abilities and others. Work your way up the "trusting" ladder with balanced Optimistic self talk and you will see your trust increase and your fear decrease and this fear of change will become less and less.

2. INADEQUACY: When we feel we are not good enough and change is suggested or presents itself, we click into an automatic conclusion that this change is because we need to improve an inferior "self". We think that the ONLY reason we need to change is to FIX something about ourselves. We are convinced that others are suggesting a change to a process at work for example, because we are incompetent at our jobs. etc... Come up with balanced Optimistic thoughts aimed at improving your self image and thus increase your opinion about your adequacy.. When this mindsets takes hold we are able to accept suggestions as suggestions and not as criticisms.

Given that change is constantly around us, HOW can we get better at accepting it and not fight it? How can we go with the flow instead of paddling upstream?

Just like with all other exercises once you come up with Optimistic outlooks countering your current negative assumptions, you can then recite them to yourself on a daily basis.

Over time you will start to see your beliefs about TRUST and SELF shift up the Optimistic ladder. This will make your emotions change for the better and that will reduce your negative reactions to change. You will start to see change as a positive and exciting thing.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Balanced thinking... Retraining your brain to generate automatic Optimistic thoughts by reciting Affirmations over and over again may not ultimately change your thinking if you don't start with Affirmations that include balanced thinking.

Balances thoughts used in Affirmations are ones that look realistically at your self and your situation. Example: If you do not think you are beautiful or handsome then saying Affirmations like "I am beautiful or handsome..." may just be dismissed by you. You reached too far up the Optimistic ladder. Start of slowly...

Start with Affirmations like "I have a beautiful smile." "I have a handsome chin." "I am fit." "I am full figured and some people do really like that." "I have nice hair." "I have no hair and many ladies like guys with little or no hair." "I take care of myself as best I can and that is acceptable."

As you make your way up the Optimistic ladder you can eventually say "...therefore I AM beautiful." Slow and steady wins the race.

Balanced Optimistic thoughts are they key!

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Talk to yourself as a friend... Are you stuck with coming up with good affirming self talk that you can say to yourself?

The best way to come up with Optimistic Self Talk that you recite on a daily basis is to look in a mirror and talk to yourself as if you are talking to your best friend or a child you care about.

We are all good at giving good balanced advice to others but we sometimes don't take that advice for ourselves. This is one way of heeding our own advice. Give yourself Optimistic and uplifting advice.

Do this several times a day and be gentle with yourself. I may take some time to turn your negative beliefs into more Optimistic ones but you will see progress if you do any exercise on a regular basis.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Loving yourself... To start any process of feeling better and you just don't know where to start then just come up with some affirming statements with regards to your love of yourself and your world, trust in yourself and your world, and patience with yourself and the world around you.

Love, trust and patience are the basis to ALL your thinking. Stand in front of a mirror, place both palms on the glass, look into your eyes and say to yourself over and over again "I love you. I trust you. I am willing to be patient. I am as good as everyone else. It is OK to not be perfect. I do the best that I can and that is acceptable. It's is OK just being myself. I am acceptable just as I am."

Almost every issue that we may have is a result of negative self worth. Fix that and you will fix almost everything.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Context determines your thoughts and beliefs ...

When you are on a roller coaster your heart races and your stomach churns.

When you are about to give a speech in front of many people your heart races and your stomach churns.

In the first situation you are excited and in the second situation you are scared.

Sometimes it's easy to change your emotions by changing your thoughts which surround this situation - changing your context.

Ask yourself... "If I looked at this situation from a different viewpoint is there something interesting or exciting or special or educational or positive that I can see?"

This can shift your thinking for the better and when you shift your thinking (thoughts that you believe to be true) you shift your mood and THAT changes how you act and react to your life's situations. It just takes practice being AWARE of our own thinking.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Moving forward... There are things that happen to us that we would not have preferred to to have happened. Many times we get STUCK in a negative thinking pattern were by we replay the situation in our minds over and over again. This repeating of thoughts also replays our emotions over and over again causing us discomfort.

The next time you catch yourself doing this, try the following exercise:

Say some affirmations confirming that the situation is now OVER: "The past is over and it cannot be changed. I give myself permission to move on." "Right now I am willing to start a new mindset and put this behind me." "I have learned many things from this experience and I am moving on." "I am willing to put this issue aside for the next 5 minutes." etc....

If you said or did something that you regret, keep in mind that the importance that you are giving this past event is likely overblown. No one is likely thinking about this situation except for you. So just gently replace these negative thoughts with balanced gentler ones and move your attention to the present moment.

If you find yourself reverting back to playing this story over again then take a few minutes, take a few deep breaths and quietly and gently say these "moving on" statements to yourself.

Do not worry how many times you need to redirect your thoughts back to the Optimistic ones. Over time you will see that you are doing it less and less. The trick is to be gentle whenever you redirect your thinking.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Grateful Meditation...

Meditation is a great way to teach ourselves to consciously focus on one thing. Whenever you focus on one Optimistic thing then your mind is no longer focusing on the negative things that it may come up with. The practice of Meditation ALSO is a practice that allows yourself to start over every time your mind wanders away from what you want to focus upon. This refocusing is what the practice is all about. Meditation is all about catching yourself when you wander and guiding you back to what your intent is.

Come up with some things in your life that you are grateful for. You don't need to come up with a whole list just a few items. Start with some focused breathing as you begin to meditate. Introduce one gratitude statement at a time and recite it gently in your mind. After some time then recite another one etc... Be Gentle and simply redirect your mind back to your gratitude statements if your mind wanders.

By taking time everyday to fully ponder and relish in your gratitude by conducting these types of meditations, you will help train yourself to be able to refocus your mind when confronted by some negative thoughts in your daily life AND you will train your brain to stay with these focused thought for longer periods of time.

Ultimately this will help retrain your brain to generate Optimistic thoughts as a default.

Do this as regular as possible and in a short time you will be thinking Optimistically automatically.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Don't blindly blame others! Take a good hard look at your next troubling situation that involves someone else. You can play the blame game or you can look for the positive in all situations and if you really do not want to be a party to what is going on then remove yourself from that situation.

You cannot change others and blaming them will also not fix anything - EVER! You have the power as to how you let things affect you! It's your choice what you want to focus on.

Thinking balanced Optimistic thoughts retrains your brain to become an Optimistic Brain when done regularly.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Anticipating the negative... Much of our negative feelings arise because we think something "may" happen in the future. We believe that the likelihood of the negative event is high - thus our emotions are created.

As you pay attention to your thinking some of you will notice this to be the case. If it is, then gently change the thought from the negative to the positive...

"What if this negative thing will happen?" to "What if this positive thing might happen?"
"What if I make a fool of myself while giving a presentation?" to "What if the presentation goes well and people love it?"
"What if no one likes me?" to "What if I make a good impression and people like me?"
"What if I fail at this task?" to"What if I succeed at doing this task?"
etc...

Focusing on the negative is just a habit that you were taught. You can change. You just have to notice you are doing it and then gently focus on the same situation but the Optimistic aspect of that situation. The more you re-focus the more automatic it will be. Do NOT beat yourself up for gravitating to the negative - it just is just an automatic habit for now. Instead applaud yourself when you notice your negative anticipation thinking and then restate those thoughts with the positive ones.

Be gentle and be patient - it really does work.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Stuff happens... Is it really directed at YOU? Next time you find yourself getting caught up in a situation that that you think is troublesome, take a closer look and determine if what is happening is directed towards you specifically or are you just caught up in a situation that has nothing really to do with you personally? What was the real intent of the action of others? Were you really part of their mindset when they took action that caused you some stress?

Maybe you are reading more thoughts into this situation than actually exist? What is the proof that what happened was actually directed at you?

Many times we mentally say to ourselves "I cannot believe this is happening to ME..."

Sometimes "stuff happens" and that is life. You were not the recipient of anything negative you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maybe the person did not even realize what they were doing or saying? Maybe you are simple reading more into a statements then was intended? Always look for more balanced thoughts when you are not feeling that great.

This will start to retrain your brains to automatically become an Optimistic Brain.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Gossip... Do you gossip or spread stories about others? Are you always looking for stories about others? Why is this the case?

This action is taken because you are trying to feel better. You are looking to see the faults in others because this will make you seem "not as bad" and that, you think, will make you feel somewhat better.

This action really does not make you feel better for very long. In fact many time we enter into a mindset of regret and that just adds to our discomfort in the long run. Reciting Optimistic self talk about what you like about yourself, what you like about your life, and what you like about the world around you WILL make you feel better.

When you become more secure about your own self, you will then diminish the need to find fault in others and accept people for who they are. Your need for gossip with then vanish.

Your exercise for today is to STOP saying any kind of gossip towards others.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Be thankful now... Take a few minutes to think about 5 things that you are thankful for today. If you are someone that naturally focuses on the bad things around you (you are doing this if you notice that you feel grumpy most of the time) then this exercise will help you change your automatic responses to scan for the negative.

You will start to feel better because this exercise focuses your thoughts to Optimistic thoughts. Be gentle and patient with yourself. When you notice that your mind is wondering to the negative scanning then just gently guide it back to something nicer.

Doing this everyday will slowly retrain your brain to automatically scan your surroundings and notice good things and therefore generate Optimistic thoughts which will make you feel so much better!

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Starting over... When we start to pursue our various life's paths, we may sometimes see ourselves falling into old habits or negative thinking, feelings and actions.

Do not get discouraged.. Look for the progress you have made, focus on even the little things that you have accomplished.

If you are trying to think more Optimistically and are frustrated with the fact that you are still thinking negatively about certain things, remember that you can always start over by observing the thought as just a thought. Your mind will always generate thoughts however you have the choice if you want to believe them or not. Never judge yourself as bad or a failure for having any negative thoughts.

Say to yourself ... "This is the first day of the rest of your life. What has happened in the past is over - you can start over and begin to think better from today onward".

Give yourself permission to start over and begin a new. You will see that as you start to think better your relapses will become less and less and if they happen you will be able to pick yourself up and continue to move forward in a positive direction.

This will generated positive thoughts about yourself in that you are indeed a nice person. These thoughts will make you feel Optimistically and act in a positive manner even more. It's a cycle that keeps giving!

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Evening Meditation... Take 10 minutes when you get home from work or around dinner time before your evening is starting and decompress from the days activities. Sit in a comfortable chair and close your eyes. Put on some relaxing music if you want. Breath in and out. Take 6 seconds to breath in and 8 seconds to breath out.

Just concentrate on your breath. If your mind wonders (and it will), then gently guide it back to the breathing. If you want, which each breath, say to yourself over and over again in a slow, soft voice "I am a good person" "I am worthy just being myself" "life is a positive learning experience".

If you do this on a regular basis you will start to train your brain to focus on something neutral when ever you want and when you get into a situation that is stressful you will be more able to "breath" and relax and then figure out what you need to do in a calm mindset.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Mastering mental skills... Many of us know very well that if you want to excel at any activity you will need to practice. Some of us catch on to things quickly and others may need more time. ALL of us can master many many skills.

Thinking Optimistically CAN be accomplished through the many actions and exercises that I talk about daily on this page. You can meditate or visualize a positive outcome or focus on appreciating what you have or pray for guidance or write down balanced thoughts countering negative ones etc...

If you want to get better and THINKING better then you have to practice - regularly. It does not take too much time but get into a habit of doing something everyday. You don't have to do the same exercise everyday - that would be boring. Change up your routine from time to time.

You can master your mind...you have to practice.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation People say "that's just me". This implies that you cannot change.

You can indeed change. You learn many new things all through your life; we learn new phone numbers and addresses for example.

You can learn to think Optimistically by retraining your brain too.

Recite custom Affirmations, Counter Points and Gratitude Statements addressing your negative thoughts on a daily basis. You can change! The science is very clear. We develop new neural pathways when we think consistently about something new. Eventually these pathways make our thinking automatic. When you first learned how to ride a bike you had to concentrate. Now when you ride a bike you barely think about how to dot it and you just do it.

You can change and we constantly do. Catch yourself the next time you give yourself a limiting label or belief; they simply are not true.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation "Living in the Present" works at focusing you away from negative chatter and thus causes you to feel better because you are not spending your time reliving your past failures and beating yourself up over them. You also gently refocus your mind away from any potential future negative outcomes.

When you concentrate on the present moment and focus on the Optimistic aspects of your current surroundings then you are "living in the present". This will help you let the past go and not worry about the future.

Whenever you see yourself reliving the past or worrying about the future, gently redirect your focus to what is in front of you right now. The more you do this the more automatic it will become.

You can always start over again and again when your mind wanders and re-focus on the present moment. Do not beat yourself up when you catch yourself wandering off. Congratulate yourself for noticing and then guide yourself back. We start doing this by Meditating and using our breath as the object of focus. As you become more experienced in this practice of noticing and guiding back then you can bring that into your everyday life and remain focused on the present moment.

Practice makes perfect! Be gentle and patient.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Surround yourself with others... Many of us are influenced by the people around us. We look up to what our friends have to say because we trust their opinion is a balanced and objective one. Make a note of who you hang around with. Are they Optimistic or are they negative? Perhaps a new direction is in order if you find your friends are not traveling down the same road as you.

Surround yourself with people that are focused on the positive aspects of life. If you come into contact with negative people you can ask them to not make any negative comments as you are focusing on the Optimistic aspects of any situation. This will help them focus on the positive as well and both of you will benefit.

If you do this regularly the people around you will change and this will benefit everyone.

What are your thoughts of self worth? Start to come up with more balanced thinking about how you see yourself. Start small and move up the Optimistic ladder as you progress. Take your time and be gentle.

Reciting affirmations about your own self worth will change your mindset and you will be able to go with the flow more often.

Affirmation: "I have many good qualities. I do my best to treat people with respect. I am worthy. I matter. I know that this life is a positive learning experience. I am a good person. I like myself. Other people like me. I am good enough just as I am. I don't have to be perfect to be good. etc..."

Regularity is the key!

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Apologizing to people that you have wronged (including yourself) helps to generate thoughts that you are willing to start from scratch and begin again. We all have done things we regret and this is one way to start to let your past actions go! You cannot change the past. You can make amends in some cases and you should do that.

Once you apologize, make amends and let the past go you have nothing from your past that is holding you back and you will be ready mentally to begin living a NEW life.

This in turn gives you confidence and keeps you motivated to continue on your path to be becoming an Optimistic thinker.

Everyone makes mistakes! Remember this the next time you find yourself beating yourself up for doing something wrong or acting as you did in your past. You can always start over again and try to be better next time.

Meditation teaches us to start over in a non-judgemental manner. When we notice our attention wandering off our breath for example then we gently guide it back and start over. This still is useful and is the key to moving our lives in a new direction.

#‎mindfulness‬ ‪#‎optimistic‬ ‪#‎meditation Visualizations are a great way to retrain your thinking process. If you've come across a situation that made you uncomfortable or wished you acted better or not have been afraid, then visualize similar future situations, acting and feeling Optimistic, confident and fearless.

When you visualize a troublesome situation and imagine it going well, you are gaining confidence in your abilities to act the way you want. You don't have to visualize yourself doing EVERYTHING to perfection but rather visualize just one or 2 actions that you can improve. As you visualize this situation on a regular basis you can work your way up the confidence ladder.

As with everything - slow and steady is the key. Be realistic with your visualizations and they will begin to take hold because you will start to believe these positive outcomes. When you believe and trust in your abilities you start to feel better. As I always say - thoughts you believe to be true ALWAYS are causing your emotions. Your emotions trigger your actions. When your emotion is confidence in yourself then you WILL act in a confident manner.
