So I've been doing a lot of self work over the past month because I believe it's important to learn from what happens in your life and move through it so that you can later have new experiences to learn from. Other wise you're just going to stay stuck in the same lesson over and over if you're not willing to learn from it. I recently had a WHOLE lot of learning smack my RIGHT in the face when I took a trip down to Dallas, Texas with a group of amazing people. I started having so many realizations and I started to understand things on and even deeper level. It really was one of the most beautiful experiences I've had in my life and I'm so grateful for it. One of the lessons I learned when I was there was to get myself a snap band for my wrist. You know those silicone/rubber bands that stretch? Yea those ones, get one. The reason for this band is to help you change your way of thinking into a more positive way of thinking and thus change your life! Every time you have a negative thought on any level, you snap the band. It hurts, you don't want to then have that thought again because you attach pain to negative thinking. The only way to recondition the mind is through repetition and shock. The band provides you with both but it also isn't enough to do serious damage. With the ups and downs I've been experiencing as of late I thought this would be the perfect way to recondition my mind so that it better works for me and so I'm no longer a slave to my negative thoughts. A lot of people still don't understand or are ignorant of the power of the human mind. We really do create our realities by the thoughts we think and the energy those thoughts put out. Since I have 25 years of programming behind my way of thinking I knew I had to do something to change it's patterns. I just started with the snap band and it's already making a difference. When I'm driving and someone cuts me off or races by me I would usually have a negative thought like "I'm already going over the speed limit, WTF?!" but now I snap my little band and I automatically don't want to have that thought any more and I switch to a place of "I love you whoever you are and you're on your journey and I'm on mine and we both are going at a different pace." I'm really excited to see how my ways of thinking change over the next few weeks and months and I will do my best to keep you all up to date. My suggestion is for everyone out there to go get them self a snap band and start changing their thinking right away! You'll be amazed at the difference it makes in your day and how much more positive you'll become.
