Make Life Work
Repair the Relationship with Yourself
By Rebecca Skeele
What areas of your life are working well? Career? Finances?
When life works you enjoy fulfillment, happiness, and a sense
of well being. "I know how to do this thing called life, and I'm
doing it well."
Areas that do not work create stress, fear, and anxiety. You
loose sleep. Self-talk quickly collapses into, "I'm a loser. I
can't do anything right. Nothing will ever change." How can you
rebuild inside and have life humming again?
FIVE TIPS FOR INNER REPAIR;
1.PICK ONE AREA that is not working in your life.
Ask yourself: How do I feel about myself? What is my inner self-
talk in this area? Am I judging myself, someone
else, the world? What do I fear others are saying about me?
The first key to refocusing stress, fear and anxiety is getting
to the root cause.
Observe your thoughts and feelings.
Adopt the position of neutrality. Pretend you are scientist
watching a specimen under a microscope. Approach your
behavior, thoughts and feelings as "Oh, that's
interesting." Do not assign meaning.
3.STOP TAKING LIFE PERSONALLY.
-Take a nice deep breath and repeat, "This is not about me.I
don't need to control this."
Pause and allow that experience to quiet your mind. Repeat often.
Entertain a new point of view that everything is FOR you, not
4.ACCEPT YOUR FEELINGS.
Make them OK. Feelings are energy, not
enemies. Stop judging your feelings and allow them to be.
5.MAKE DIFFERENT CHOICES.
What new awareness do you have about yourself? Is there a
different choice you could make in this
situation? What outer step supports that new behavior?
ADJUST YOUR INNER LENS SLIGHTLY and you have a different view
that creates lasting change.
PRACTICE NEW CHOICES with patience and soon your career,
marriage, finances and health will work for you and life will be
rich in abundance and loving.
