I have been experimenting with changing my negative thoughts and beliefs into positive ones. For 21 day, I have made an effort to observe my thoughts and detect how negative thoughts arise. The results of this short experiment are amazing. My life completely changed. I can here my guidance system or intuition more clearly.
I'm still working on understanding my beliefs and questioning them, but I'm amazed at how easy it is to turn around our life. My world responded immediately to the changes in my thought patterns.
Many new interests and people entered into my life. The most important results is that I am more true to myself and, as a result, I'm a happier person.
In short, in these three weeks I could open up to what I've been wanting to do for a long time just by being aware of my thoughts.
1) I have found a yoga studio, whose spiritual values are very close to mine.
2) I have reconnected with my old friends, and decided to continue this rediscovered friendship because we have much more in common than we thought.
3) Following my interest in the physical body, nutrition and health, I have enrolled in Health and Nutrition Coach program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. My long-term goal is to develop a holistic approach to wellness in a global sense that would include balancing all aspects of the human body: physical, mental, and spiritual. I would like to start the transformation process with myself and my family and friends, and then teach other people how to live a happy and full life in harmony with themselves and the rest of the world. This is my passion. I haven't decided yet which format I'm going to use to deliver this message. Maybe using online courses, workshops, blogging, newsletters, and books. I am open to creativity right now and ready to go wherever this journey will take me.
4) I am on my way to becoming a certified reiki practitioner. Energy healing was always one of my interests.
5) Other interests of mine, like crystal healing, meditation, shamanism, conscious birth, and everything that can be broadly connected to spiritual growth has also expanded and blossomed;
6) I found an amazing group of women who read books on spiritual growth and meet to discuss them in a book club. The two books we have picked together are exactly what I wanted to read for a long time: "A 1000 Names for Joy" by Byron Katie and "Tao Te Ching".
I'm going to continue my experiment and want to encourage everyone to please pay attention to your thoughts. You have control over them, or they will start to control you and run your life. There are only two options. Let's choose to live and create our life consciously!
I started to write this post, because I wanted to say a few words about choices that we make and how we decide what's best for us. Right now, I see an immediate connection between the opportunities that arise in my life and my thoughts and intentions. One problem that I couldn't solve yet is which option to choose if more than one opportunity for growth arise in my life. Let's say, I have two workshops that I can register for this week-end. Both of them sound very interesting and I'm sure I'm going to benefit greatly from attending either of them. How do I decide which one to attend? It seems to be simple, but it's not for me. I know that I have attracted both workshops with my intention. The next step would be to honor this opportunity and enroll in a workshop that will answers my questions, but I can't decide which one will answer most questions. It might be that they will open two different paths for me, and I don't want to make a mistake. At the same time, I know that there is no mistakes in life, there are only experiences. Then why I can't choose between the two workshops?
