It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
We are suffering more than we are meant to. Chronic stress. Loneliness. Isolation. Anxiety. Depression. We are overwhelmed by pain because we’re alienated from the basic understanding of who we truly are. What if we recognized that we are made of infinite energy emanating from a source of unimaginable creative power? Suffering wouldn’t linger as much as we allow it to now.
Here are three suggestions on how to become a positive thought warrior.
Mindset Shifts to Summon Self-Compassion
So often, we are our own worst enemy. Negative self-talk not only makes us more anxious and stressed, but it doesn’t do us any good. The more you become aware of your self-talk, the better you will get to the underlying attitude and beliefs. Simply being aware is key.
Start with one positive thought. It will lead to a positive inner dialogue. Do something you’re good at (gardening, DIY projects, painting, cooking, etc.) and compliment yourself on a job well done. Consider how much joy that activity brings you and congratulate yourself for choosing to do something that makes you happy. When we train ourselves to acknowledge when we’re joyful, it becomes easier to detect positive thoughts.
When you’re doing something you like, get comfortable talking to yourself about it! Why does it bring you joy? What does it make you grateful for? If negative thoughts intrude, don’t ignore them; instead, put that energy back into a positive idea until eventually, it becomes a chain reaction of thinking positively.
Becoming a positive thought warrior does not mean you will not have negative thoughts and feelings. It means the way you look at suffering will shift, and you will be able to experience more self-compassion.
