Today I turned over one of my positive thoughts for the day and affirmation cards which read . . .
"Anything that bothers you is only a problem within. Only You can experience it, and only You can correct it."
The affirmation that went with that was "I work on my problems, and then I release them"
It's quite true that we can only experience things from our own point of view, we can imagine how others might think or feel, but they will have their inner experiences and you have yours.
So when you find something that bothers you, no matter what it is, the real place to work through it is by looking within ourselves at what we run through our minds, our thoughts, our beliefs, our values, and how they make us behave, feel, respond in many different ways (some we like and some we don't like!).
So next time you're faced with something that bothers you, take a moment to stop and reflect on what is your experience of it, what does it bring your attention to within yourself . . . what do you like and what do you dislike . . . all being just our personal point of view . . . our perception at that moment in time.
Remember that a problem is only a problem if you make it one!
These things we create as problems, are often there to help us learn, change, and develop as a person. Resistance to change is futile, as the thing that bothers you will simply keep popping up in many different ways, showing it's many different colours within you, until you've learnt what you needed to learn, embraced those learning and changed how you see things.
The only person who stops you from changing is you. . . and only you can do it.
Yes, you can have support and guidance but ultimately you need to do the doing.
I support and guide my Cognitive Hypnotherapy clients through change everyday, helping them to realise just what it is within them that holds them back, and them guide them through releasing it in whatever way is right for them. Simply knowing that there are things within yourself you want to change and are ready to change and move them on is the first step to taking action . . .
the possibility of change is always within your hands.
