DON’T WORRY…. Easier said than done when you’re a chronic worrier, right ? But consider this.
Not only does worry not solve anything .. it actually directs energy towards the very thing we are worrying about (since energy flows where attention goes). But before you start worrying about THAT : ) … keep reading …
If we are able to shift our attention away from the problem by focusing on anything that makes us feel happier, not only do we immediately stop directing energy towards the issue, but we often open the space for a solution to reveal itself. So here is a really simple way to do this: Every time you find yourself worrying about a future event, replace your worrisome thoughts with this “mantra” :
“I don’t have to think about this right now”. Because you actually don’t.
And as you say this to yourself you will begin to feel better straight away (AND you will in that moment stop sending energy to the issue).
This works really well because the “right now” tricks your ego into thinking you’ll come back to it later … but hopefully as you feel better and better, and as solutions and new perceptions appear, you will feel less inclined to “go there” again. Repeat as needed … it does work better and better with practice : ) Give it a try – would love to hear how it works for you. I know it has really helped several of my clients and it’s so very simple.
Julie Ann PS since feelings attract experiences, a welcome side effect will be that you will begin to attract less to worry about in general. Think about THAT : )
