Being aware of your thoughts

When you are in the company of people whose attitudes are persistently negative you generally don’t have a good time.  But we still seem to tolerate the critical and negative chatter that originates within our own minds. Often we are so used to the constant stream of self-limiting, critical consciousness that pops up in our thoughts, that we are unaware of the impact these musings have on our lives. It is only when we become aware of the power of such thoughts that we can remove many of them and fill the emptiness they leave with loving, peaceful affirmations. Many people, upon paying careful attention to their thinking patterns, are surprised at the negativity they find there. But when we take notice of our thoughts in a non-judgemental way, we initiate a healing process that will eventually allow us to replace intimidating and upsetting self-talk with positive, empowering thoughts.

Usually the occasional downbeat or judgemental thought may have little impact on your happiness, but the ongoing negativity that passes unnoticed can have a dampening effect on your mood and your outlook. When you are aware of the tone of your thoughts, however, you can challenge them. Try to become conscious of your feelings, opinions, and judgements for one day. From sunup to sundown, scrutinise the messages you are feeding into your subconscious mind. Consider your thoughts from the perspective of a detached observer and try not to judge yourself based on the thoughts that come unbidden into your mind. Simply watch the flow of your consciousness and make a note of the number of times you find yourself focusing on gloomy thoughts or indulging in self-directed criticism.

When you become increasingly aware of your patterns of thought, whether positive or negative, you will gradually learn to control the character of your stream of consciousness. Try to remember that the images and ideas that pass through your mind are transient and not a true representation of who you are. In training yourself to be cognizant of your thoughts, you gain the ability to actively modulate your mood. The awareness you cultivate within yourself will eventually enable you to create a foundation of positivity from which you can build a more authentic existence.

Recognising your value

We often think that we are insignificant, although this is an illusion. Seeing celebrities, successful people in our community, or large corporations and comparing ourselves to them. We may then think that their fame or material power affirm how little our own lives amount to. But nothing could be further from the truth. Each and every single one of us matters tremendously.  Our very existence affects countless people in numerous ways. And because we are each essentially a microcosm of the larger universe, our internal experiences affect the whole of life more than we could ever imagine. The world simply could not exist as it does now if you, or any one of us, were not in it.

Maybe you believe that on some level you are sure your life does not matter. If this thought resonates within you, maybe it is time to explore why you feel this way. You may have formed self-rejecting or belittling beliefs as a child to keep yourself safe or to help you make sense of confusing situations. You may have felt unseen or unheard and decided that there was something wrong with you, rather than with the attention span of the people around you. Spend some time looking into where these feelings of insignificance first took root, and see what changes you might be able to make in your life and in your heart.

Your belief in your own unimportance could be limiting you and impacting your life in enormous ways. When you shift your perceptions around your own ability to affect your life and impact the world, you may discover wonderful parts of yourself that you had long ago forgotten. There may even be exciting new parts that you never even knew existed. When you gain awareness of how much your life really does matter, new sources of energy can emerge and your sense of connection with the world is renewed.
