Peace of Mind
(3.v) Burning Away Your Problems!
What does peace of mind mean to you?
No, I don’t mean if you are angry, you give someone a "piece" of your mind – totally different.
In today’s world, so many people are stressed, worrying about their future. They fret about things like where they will live, putting food on their table, paying the bills, their job or career, their relationships and a host of other “worries”.
On top of all these personal worries, you probably have global fears such as terrorism, nuclear weapons, oil shortages, world competition and so on.
You can change the world, but only by changing what you think, feel and believe. Everything starts within you and not outside of you.
If you want to change the world and make it a better place to live for everyone, start with yourself. Work on your own peace of mind first and you begin to affect those around you.
You might think this is total B.S. That’s okay! Realize you have self-limiting beliefs which are still influencing your thinking and sabotaging your efforts.
When I look at one of the greatest lessons ever learned on changing the world by changing yourself, Ghandi immediately comes to mind. A lawyer, who gave up his career, changed himself and ultimately changed a nation.
When you free your mind of unwanted emotional blocks, you are clearing the path for your own peace of mind. All things become possible.
Assuming you have been following me along since the home page of this tutorial, by now you understand whatever you focus on most in life is what you manifest.
With this in mind, if you are focusing on lack or problems, you ultimately attract more of them. When you are focusing on all the good in life, you attract more of this good.
By releasing the emotional attachment to your fears and worries, whether they are personal or global, you are clearing your mind of self-limitations; allowing yourself to focus on the good around you.
In the introduction to this section, Change Management Techniques, I explained there are easy to apply techniques which very effectively free your mind of the blocks which stop you from achieving your dreams.
These so-called blocks are the “emotional attachment” we have to a thought or belief. This attachment is manifested in both our bodies and our minds.
I have discovered eliminating this emotional attachment is the quickest and easiest method of achieving true peace of mind.
Hopefully I have convinced you how important it is to release your emotional attachment to the negatives in life and achieve true peace of mind.
Peace of Mind Self Help Technique:
- Write down in detail whatever it is that is bothering you. Don’t stop to edit it, analyze it or judge anything you have written. Keep writing until you have exhausted all thoughts and feelings on the subject.
- When you are finished, re-read what you have written. Allow yourself to feel whatever emotion is building inside. Through the process of exposing something to the light, it has already begun to lose it’s power over you.
- Ceremoniously light a match to whatever you have written. As it burns away, visualize your problem also burning away. Feel the emotional release as the problem goes up in smoke.
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this technique. When looking at what it is that bothers you, the more you release these unwanted thoughts, feelings, memories or habits, the faster your path to success appears to you.
Other variations to this technique which are just as effective include:
- Dig a hole and bury your notes visualizing your problem being buried.
- Visualize the situation in the forefront of your mind. See as big, bright and colorful. Then visualize it moving to the back of your head, getting smaller and smaller, darker and darker, moving farther away from you until it is no longer visible.
- Take your notes and flush them down the toilet and visualize your problems being flushed as well.
All of these techniques are effective in sending a clear message to your subconscious brain, telling it you no longer desire to be emotionally attached to this problem, block or situation.
You are “turning off the power” of that thought, belief, habit or feeling.
Try it! You will be pleasantly surprised with how easily you too can have peace of mind.
That's a wrap for the emotional releasing or emotional clearing techniques I use regularly to clear out the mental blocks.
Remember, these mental blocks create self-sabotage and limit your ability to change and become successful.
In the next section you will learn techniques to re-program your subconscious mind so it functions in harmony with your desires; instead of against them.
