●THE POWER of words we think & say – our self talk patter – what are u telling yr brain?
Your brain will pay attention to what you are thinking and saying to yourself and others and make sure that’s what you get!
Rather than focusing on how terrible things are try focusing on what is wonderful in your life! What you are greatful for.
What have we got to be grateful about?
Our health, family, friends, partners, pets, animals, our job, employer, food on the table, roof over our heads, running water, chocolate cake, great teachers, blue sky, the sun, rain, thungderstorms, forrests, art, music, litrature, food, singing, the wind etc
Rather than being concerned about poverty and the financial uncertainty which the media are having a humungous field day with….
We need to be concerned about abundance for all!
If we focus on poverty we give it more ‘power’ ‘energy’ ‘force'[?]
We might then get fearful and slip and slide all the way into a jolly depressing powerless place which also adds to all the others who are thinking similarly to you which then becomes the general trend and guess what? it happens – its called a self fullfilling prophesy

So what can we do?
What we need to do is focus on how we want things to BE – according to the ‘law of attraction’ & deal with NOW – not worry about what has been or what might happen
FEEL the feelings of how you want things to be.
Not on how you are being told things ARE or how things MIGHT be
Yes? Are you with me?
For example – instead of being ANTI WAR – which keeps one focused on war, violence, destruction etc
Rather we must focus on PEACE – fulfilment – tranquillity – well being – our community – fun – laughter – caring – all the goooooooood stuff we love and want around us and in our communities
After all this is what makes us feel gooood and safe and secure and happy – all we can really be ‘in control of’ and influence – our immediate community
We must not focus on the things we do not want
We must not focus on the things we do NOT want
WE MUST NOT FOCUS ON THE THINGS WE DO NOT WANT!
WE MUST NOT absolutely NOT FOCUS ON THE THINGS WEDO NOT
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU
It took me a while to get that one!
So what are some of the gooood powerful words we can start to use and focus on no matter how under whelmed we feel?!
Abundance …. Vitality … Relaxed Enthusiastic … Caring … Joyful … Loving … Patient … Considerate … Listening … Sharing … Generous Prosperous … Invincible … Keep on till it’s sorted … Finding Solutions … Seek the positive aspect in all challenging situations … being energised … See The Bright Side Of Life … Laughing … Smiling!
A friend told me they saw a graffito that said
Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty!
Anthony Robbins [The power with in] encourages us to turn the volume of harsh angry destructive words down and turn up the intensity of the good things or ordinary things!
Lets say you’re fuuuuuuuming and steam is coming out of yr ears…..
“I’m feeling a tad irritated” ! [& and a smile would be excellent too!]
Did you know that your brain can’t tell the difference between you smiling or laughing and faking a laugh or smile?!
So if laughter makes you feel good then if yr feeling seriously miffed, a tad concerned about the sate of affairs
Try laughing or even just hold a smile – fake it
Smile at everyone – and see what happens!
The muscles that we use to smile tells the brain that we are happy and it releases the appropriate feel good chemicals – endorphins i think they are called
The power of smiling
We are wired up to feel good when we see one and when we use one!
[even if yr feeling a smidging under the weather]
Smile Smile Smile
I found out that there are laughing clubs!
Hooo hoooo hooo haaaa haaaa haaa hooo hooo hooo haaa haaa haaa
See if there is one near you or start yr own!
I’m going to get the neighbours in for a good laugh and maybe a tipple too!
Here’s a brilliant site that tells you where to find one and if there isn’t one near you how to start yr own and how to do it!
How generous is that?!
