You ever been in public and saw, smelled, taste, touched or heard something that took you to a thought? Then that thought took you toseveralthoughts which led you to not so good memories? Although there was no perceived or imminent threat, you felt anxious as if something bad was about to happen or you were being watched.Your palms were sweating and your heart beating; you wanted to disappear!

Have you been practicing positive thinking and positive self-talk to help you cope? After all, experts suggest repeating daily affirmations produces a positive life.Regrettably you are reciting affirmations and every word you are affirming contrasts with your thoughts, and feelings. It seems affirmations are no match for your reality.

If you have been repeating affirmations to help with negative thoughts and still have no results, I may be able to help. I am Elease A. Wiggins a mental health coach, who has overcome anxiety and depression. And for the past 10 years I have helped others suffering from automatic negative thoughts. In this time I have come editorialize simply reciting words will not repair the trauma and/or abuse you sustained.However,understanding your senses mental link between your thoughts and your feelings may be a start.

What am I talking about? When one of your senses is stimulated, it evokes a memory that triggers other senses. Studies show that a visual stimulus can activate brain regions associated with a previously experienced smell.Which explains why smell and sound have the power to conjure up entire scenes from your past and manifest physical feelings in your body.

Now that you have learned the possible cause to your uncontrollable, unwanted, automatic negative thoughts,what should you do? I have four techniques to share with you

  1. Train your brain – Make a habit of starting your day with the Creator. What’s the first thought you have in the morning? As soon as you become aware, give thanks for being alive. Another day to get right what you could not get right yesterday. Another day another chance.
  2. Take time for self-meditation- Once you determine what triggers your senses and why, you will have a better understanding of who and what impacts you. Knowing this information about yourself will protect and guide you.
  3. Trust your inner voice—You know that quiet still voice you often ignore? The reason you don’t trust your intuition is because you have been conditioned to follow and conform to who and what is around you. Therefore you feel bad when you do what’s right for you. The more you acknowledge your inner voice even when it doesn’t feel good, the more comfortable you will become with trusting its illogical guidance.4. Thank-formations- are like affirmations however, with Thank-formations, you are practicing gratitude in advance for what you have yet to receive is the cultivation of faith. When you are constantly thanking and believing, you are connecting your mind to the higher one, therefore co-creating your life.

 

Your Life is a Gift,

    I in addition to my pals were found to be viewing the great procedures found on the website and then got an awful feeling I had not thanked the site owner for those tips. Most of the young boys were stimulated to see them and have actually been tapping into those things. Appreciation for genuinely well accommodating and then for going for certain notable subject matter most people are really needing to discover. Our own sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to sooner. Janelle Aloysius Cacie
