In any given moment you have the ability to identify and stop un-resourceful thoughts in their tracks and turn your focus around in the direction of thinking that best serves you.
Your mind is in the driver’s seat of everything you experience. It is through your mind that you put things into expression, and it is through your mind that you receive information. The more you make it your dominant practice to notice what type of thoughts you are identifying and engaging with moment after moment, the more you give yourself the ability to turn your mind into the innate success system it was designed to be.
Your mind is always in an act of creativity. It is always conjuring up narratives, images, impressions and projections. It is continuously generating content moment after moment and making declarations on the nature of reality. Whether or not this content is useful to you and your goals is what you have to actively monitor.
If you pay close attention to the content the mind is constantly generating, the evaluations, the interpretations, the judgments, you will be able to identify what the overall quality of your internal narrative is like. Most often, the inner voice that is taking up residence in your mind is one that is critical, judgmental and resistant rather than one that is empowering, inspired and energizing.
Changing your thought patterns, changing your overall pattern of thinking moment after moment begins when you first identify what your overall habituated pattern of thinking contains. What is the energy of your dominant thought patterns? Is your overall pattern of thinking moment after moment and on every subject a pattern of thinking that serves you and is useful? Is your overall thinking pattern about your work or your relationships or your body or your health or your income a pattern of thinking that adds energy and a sense of expansiveness to your being? So the first step is to identify your overall pattern of thinking and evaluate it.
Once you understand and bring into conscious awareness the nature of your thoughts on a subject, you can then begin to shift the patterns of thought into something you identify as being more useful and more resourceful. Thoughts that add energy to you, thoughts that open you up, thoughts that expand your awareness are thoughts that are adding resources to your being and creative capacity. The better a thought feels, the more energy and information it is making available to you.
The next step then becomes about choosing to release the negative self-talk or chatter that you do catch and in its place generating an inner chatter that has a more elevating effect on your being. You lift off of the old narrative that didn't feel so good and in its place bring into activation a new more empowering and energizing narrative. You have to routinely bring yourself to ask: (1) What am I thinking and feeling right now? (2) Is this empowering me, energizing me, elevating me? Is this useful? (3) What would be more useful, more empowering, more energizing for me to think and feel instead?
The overall process then becomes about bringing into awareness the static noise that often runs on loop in the background, noticing it, consciously evaluating its usefulness, and then navigating your attention toward thoughts that fuel and empower you on every level. By first identifying, evaluating and releasing that old chatter your free up your awareness to identify and merge with a new more resourceful and more useful pattern.
If you can practice getting in the habit of asking “is this useful” when you catch yourself being attentive to negating or self-sabotaging thoughts, thoughts that only serve to diminish your sense of capacity or capability to bring about what you desire to achieve, you will find yourself not only regaining momentum toward accomplishing your goals but you will materialize your goals with greater ease and flow.
See how many times you catch yourself going into a state of mind that in no way empowers the realization of your goal, and see what happens when you ask that simple question: is this useful? All you are doing is reminding yourself of your power to direct your mind rather than having your mind blindly and haphazardly direct you.
Everything you need to succeed in materializing whatever you desire rests in your ability to engage with every aspect of your internal mechanism.
You are always IN-powered, powered from the inside!
