Create a Switch

As we all know, our minds can often go places we don't want it to go. If we let it run rampant, we will soon find ourselves in a place of self-pity, loathing, hate, guilt and all the emotions we classify as "bad." Because of this, we must take responsibility for our thoughts and create a switch. A switch is something that turns something on or off - as in a light switch. In this case you are creating a mental switch. Think of a serene, joyful scene or person and create a short but powerful story. Practice this switch in your head often so that it becomes natural. Whenever you find yourself in a thought you do not like turn your switch on immediately. Begin to think of that beautiful scene, person etc. and milk it, add to the story, go off into that story and never look back. You will find that you can't even remember what you were thinking of before you switched the switch. Enjoy your journey to wholeness.
