Here are your journal prompts for this week:
Remember to set this time aside to do your journaling- perhaps find a quiet place, where you can go to focus and honor this special time.
What things would you like to release from your "thinking", that no longer serves you?
(Negative thinking about self, others, the world, unworthiness, limiting beliefs, etc.)
2. Make a list of the positive things you are "feeding" your mind, that serve your highest self today?
(This can be a list of your desired “new” intentions/affirmations or actions, that you are committing to, moving forward.)
Embrace a gratitude ritual at the start of your day.
Whenever you wake up , think (and if you can, state aloud) what you’re grateful for. I’m sure many of you have heard of gratitude rituals, but here’s a new twist. To actually have the gratitude impact the rest of your day, you also need to add on how it makes you feel.
So your morning gratitude ritual would go something like this: “I’m grateful for (fill in your blank) because it makes me feel (a positive feeling).” The more you can attach a feeling to the gratitude, the better. You raise your vibration and protect yourself from negative energies and ground yourself first thing in the morning.
2. Create a personal mantra.
A mantra is an affirmation or an intention that you can repeat silently to yourself whenever the going gets tough. One of my favorites is “I am open to receive whatever I need in this moment.” This allows me to let go of attachment to what I ‘think’ needs to happen and allow whatever is best to occur.
Any time a ‘Debbie Downer’ comes your way, you can pause- inhale and exhale- and repeat your mantra to yourself. An uplifting intention statement can create positive energy in any bad situation.
Some exercises to help you with being more mindful and centering yourself.
(Wherever you begin is okay.)
Meditation has numerous benefits and enables you to rain your mind and clear your thoughts. It’s all about quieting that beautiful mind of ours, so we can hear those truths.
Look into yourself and into your mind.
This is where mindfulness can help. Try to find out what it is that makes you feel conscious and alive. Developing a ‘happiness habit’ can also help, by always looking at the bright side of life and endeavoring to be happy. Happiness comes from within and you shouldn’t let outside influences decide your happiness for you.
There are various steps you can take to eliminate negative thinking and mindfulness can be a useful tool to do this. It allows you to be in control of what enters your mind and determine where negative thoughts come from. Gratitude is also a useful tool and has been shown to have positive physical and psychosocial benefits.
Learn to make your mind quiet.
Meditation and concentration exercises can help you strengthen your mind and gives you control over your thoughts which is intrinsically linked to the above point. Also, exercise your will power and decision making ability as often as possible.
