"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
Your perception of life comes from the filter of your subconscious mind. Your past experiences, situations, relationships, belief systems, and values shape your perspective of the world today. This does not make your way right or wrong. It makes your perspective uniquely yours. This is why we all have different opinions about situations. What beliefs are you holding on to that no longer serve a purpose? Maybe you compare your current relationships to your past relationships? Fear of being hurt? This is a great example of weeds that you can pull from your subconscious garden. We miss out on a lot of new, exciting opportunities due to fear. Sometimes we get stuck playing the victim role. "I am a victim of my circumstances." This can lead to a lot of unnecessary pressure, resentment, and guilt. Meditation is a great way to start the process of weeding your subconscious garden. By spending quiet time with yourself, you become aware of your beliefs, thoughts, and values and are better able to make changes. Here are some tips to help you change your perspective.
Change your words, change your mind. To change your perspective, you must first change your verbiage. Using the word "should" puts you in the victim role. I "should" make the bed! Instead of playing the victim role, rephrase your words. "I am going to make the bed because it makes me happy." Take your power back!
Respond and not react. Realize that everyone is viewing life from their lenses. Hurting people hurt people. So next time someone lashes out at you, stop and take a moment to realize their reaction is coming from their hurt, not yours. Looking through their lenses for a moment can turn your reaction into a response of love and compassion.
Tip # 3
Love yourself. Critical self-talk is a quick way to damage your soul. By loving yourself unconditionally you are quicker to make healthier choices for yourself. How would your best friend talk to you? Use those same words to encourage yourself. It may seem silly at first, but this exercise is powerful. The more you love yourself the more the world around you will change!
Meditate, meditate, meditate
The more time you spend in quiet with yourself, the more you will learn about yourself. Self-realization is the best way to be able to weed your subconscious garden of things that no longer serve a purpose to you. Remember this is a process, take your time!
