Who doesn’t want more peace, happiness, and joy? But if you don’t understand the impact of your emotions, putting your attention there may not be on your to do list.
I awoke with the idea that I won’t pour anymore resentment, envy, or remorse into the melting pot of emotion. That I’ll turn my attention to the stars, ocean, my breath instead.
I like the way it sounds and feels. I’m not saying I won’t ever feel negative emotions. Just that we are all mighty mood-shifters, for better or worse.
Whether we intend to or not, our inner worlds have ripple effects.
Emotions Are Contagious
I’m sure you recall a time when someone you loved became moody or hostile. Tensions peaked and fights ensued.
On the flipside, in the presence of a joyful child or playful animal, you may have found an easy smile that come from your toes.
The subconscious does not originate ideas, but accepts as true those which the subconscious mind feels to be true and, in a way known only to itself, objectifies the accepted ideas…Neville Goddard
Earlier in life, I thought I was at the mercy of others’ moods. Face with intense emotions, I felt powerless. Even frightened.
What we store in our subconscious drives us. When I believed in a hostile world, that’s what I got. When I believe in harmony, I get harmony.
It took effort and humility to see it was my inner world creating my outer reality.
We do things backwards. In the past, I certainly did. I tried to fix things out there until I discovered I hadn’t tended to my own garden.
Uprooting Weeds, Planting Seeds
It takes courage to stop projecting our inner worlds on the outer. We want to point our finger.
When I faced the mirror, I wanted to run.
More than that, I wanted to change how my garden looked. I began to pull up deep-rooted weeds like envy, resentment, shame, and fear.
It wasn’t easy. For a couple of years, I did an inventory and came up with a handful of negative beliefs.
My false beliefs likely similar to yours: I’m not good enough, The good will never last, I don’t have what it takes…
(to name a few).
Sowing seeds like love, abundance, joy is the best use of our conscious will.
What’s do you want in your garden?
