How valuable is the “LIST of what I HAVE?”- Part I
Did you ever walk into the Doctor’s office feeling somewhat unhappy and walk out feeling totally in the pits, deep sorrow and haunting pain that couldn’t be shaken off?
…Or finding yourself in a real low mood, depleted of energy and looking for a pick me up?
How does this happen to us?
One minute like this :)) then the next minute like that :((?
Did you ever hear of the List of What you have?”
This list is compiled by you, sitting quietly and tuned into your thoughts. Only 100% positive thoughts, unconditional, without excuses or buts or ifs….
Four columns: What I have-materialistic items, family, people; My qualities- attributes, strengths, talents; What I love-to do, activities and etc.; What I want- all things materialistic or abstract of whatever, let your mind go…
On the top of your columns, write a few things that point you out in a crowd, the things that identify you before anyone else.
As you compile your list try checking in yourself how you feel. Is there a part of your body calling attention to you, feeling a bit constricting? Perhaps coming over you is a smile, grin or a nod… maybe your breathing changes, your chest is quiet…
How valuable is the “List of what we Have” ?,
Even when we are down in the dumps we can always look around us and compile a list of the positive things in our view at this exact moment.
Want to hear an example of how this works?
Sitting across from the professional advisor, we offered our detailed list of negative complaints. Our participation in 1 ½ hrs of verbally reviewing the written list of destructive feelings. Accumulated, edited and spoken out before the Dr. of Psychiatry.
That’s all it takes, is 1 1\2 hrs of constant discussion on your suffering in order to remake pain…aching head, joints and heart. All of this by the constant review of your thoughts of the past… from your thoughts thrown to the future and buffered by present shopping list of agonies!
…and there you have it! You have the perfect recipe for further suffering and pain…
What happens when you know, by personal knowing as I do, of the journey going from suffering to resolving the source of pain…?
How about seeing the opportunity for grabbing onto positive thoughts?
