Are Your Positive Thoughts Making You Feel Bad?

[This is a reprint of my article in the May 2012 Natural Triad magazine.]

Are Your Positive Thoughts Making You Feel Bad?

By: Donna Burick

One must marry one’s feelings to one’s beliefs and ideas. That is probably the only way to achieve a measure of harmony in one’s life. Napoleon Hill

Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance. Brian Tracy

Our minds are like a vast universe fueled by the dark matter that are our thoughts. They are tricky, sticky, funny, uplifting, inspirational, devastating and crippling. We give our thoughts too much credit. We believe they are our guides but in reality, our feelings are our true guides.

How We “Head” Into Trouble

Anytime we are led by our head we are “headed” for trouble. You see it is our ideas & beliefs that create our problems. You know that on some level – your gut level. Let me explain.  Our thoughts are so tricky that even the “good” ones like, “I want to accomplish something important in my life time” or “I want to discover my life purpose” can be very self-destructive. I would even say they can be as damaging, if not more, than the ones we acknowledge are damaging like “I’m so stupid” or “I can’t believe I did it again”. The way you know these are the same is by the way you feel.

Your feelings are your true guidance system. If thoughts are making you feel “bad” in any way then they are damaging. Don’t be fooled by their false positiveness like those referenced above. It doesn’t matter what the thought is, just how it makes you feel. So, if the thought that you want to do something important in your lifetime excites & motives you then it’s a good thought. However, I’ve seen that very thought paralyze and degrade otherwise bright, talented people. Same thought two different feelings.

My Personal Challenge

Here is an example from my own life. My youngest son has developed a new habit of leaving his shirt on his bathroom floor every morning. He is a teenager so he’s very tired in the morning and after his shower he just can’t seem to remember to pick it up when he leaves the bathroom.

This new habit of his was very stressful for me. I was annoyed that every week there would be 5 or 6 “invisible” shirts on the floor. I assumed that as they built up they would be more noticeable or maybe perhaps when he went in the bathroom in the afternoon or evening then he might notice them then and pick them up. Sadly, no. None of these things took place. They seemed reasonable assumptions on my part but they are apparently utterly foreign to my beloved offspring.

As this trend continued and I made repeated attempts at correcting this behavior to no avail, my anger & frustration grew.  This small issue was growing and consuming my energy and attention. Every time I walked past his bathroom and saw another infraction, I had a negative emotional reaction. What irked me most of all is my son’s unwillingness to understand how monumental this issue really was. To my utter amazement, to him this was just no big deal. Which of course set me off on another tirade all by itself.

My Ah-Ha Moment

I was talking about this struggle I was having (and it is important to note only I was having it – the only struggle my son was having was with me & my ever increasing reactions) and a close friend of mine said to me, “Maybe that’s just his personality. Perhaps you should just let it go and not make such a big deal about it.” I just stood there with my mouth open. I was stunned. If it had been a movie there would have been a quelling of music in the background. I started laughing. She of course was right. I had become a prisoner of my thoughts. Thoughts I was sure were positive, good & right but were making me feel bad. I believed that I was helping my son by training him to not leave his clothes in the bathroom. I did the natural thing and had played it all the way out, reassuring myself that I was saving him from eminent disaster in later life by keeping him from divorce because he was totally incapable of picking up his dirty clothes off the floor. He’s only 14. Perhaps he might just grow out of it – even without my “help”.

I got so wrapped up in my thoughts I forgot to use my guidance system to check in with myself. My feelings of anger & irritation were my flags that something was off, yet I overrode them by reassuring myself that I was right. But I heeded the old adage, “You can be right or happy, chose one.” I changed course and went with happy.

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible – the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family. Virginia Satir

Change Your Mind & Everything Changes

His clothes still adorn the bathroom floor and I still walk past and shake my head, but now I do it with a little smile. Nothing has changed except the way I think about the situation. My new mantra is “Isn’t he so cute.” I now focus my thoughts on the things I adore about my son and I notice I am getting more of those things from him instead of the resistance and struggle brought out by my last stance.

The Universe is made up of wonderful checks and balances and your Mind/Body connection is one of those miracles. Our lives have become full of distractions & disconnects. But the more you can open that channel the more grounded and magical your daily life can become.

The first step is to consciously begin tying the two together. When you are feeling discomfort in your body ask yourself, “What is the thought I was just thinking?” In turn, as you listen to your mind chatter, pause for a moment, drop into your body and ask yourself, “How does this make me feel?” These exercises will help unblock your Mind/Body connection.

Be Wary of the Serpent in Designer Clothing

Overtly negative thoughts are easy to spot, but be on the lookout for the ones that seem positive but elicit “bad” feelings. It is very easy to ignore the guidance of these feelings and overwrite them with the intellectual idea that our Mind knows best. This is where the insidiously tricky, stickiness of our thoughts get us. It’s like having the President fire the Congress and the Supreme Court and appoint himself to be his own set of checks & balances. We would be all up in arms if that happened; yet we let our thoughts convince us that they know what’s best. If you listen very closely you might even catch the slight hissing sound that rolls off the serpent’s tongue when you hear that inner voice whisper, “Trust me, you are in the right.”

You Already Have the Answer

So for those of you who are struggling with the idea that you want to find your life purpose and/or want to accomplish something important here’s your answer. You are already fulfilling your life’s purpose every time you laugh, or connect with someone or love or feel good. Just as you are already accomplishing something important just by adding your unique imprint on the Universe.

Your purpose is to be in love with you. There is no greater gift you can give to the world because only you can give it. That’s why it is also your biggest, most important accomplishment. Your uniqueness is the accomplishment – it is an accomplishment of being not doing. So be the most wonderful version of yourself possible and feel your emotional guidance system give your new way of thinking a standing ovation.

Your Wish is Your Command: How to Uncork the Genie in the Bottle

If a Genie suddenly appeared and asked you, “What is it that you really want?” would you be able to answer? Really answer, not just with the list of things you always have at the ready – bigger house, new car, more money, etc. etc. – but the feelings and state of mind that you think these things will bring you if you somehow could possess them.

Maybe you do have a clear vision of what you really want; like a chronic pain you want to release. Or perhaps when faced with that question you only have a vague sense that there is something you want, but you just can’t bring it into clear focus.

What if that Genie really exists and it lives in your energy field that is the “Higher You”? Wouldn’t you love to be able to communicate with it? Well, the answers you seek are closer than you think.

Here is a fun way to “channel” your inner guidance:

  1. Set aside 30-60 minutes of quiet time. Bring a notebook and a pen.
  2. Write on the top of the paper your question. For example, “What is it I really want at this time in my life?”
  3. Close your eyes and go inward for a few minutes. When you feel ready open your eyes and begin writing. If nothing comes flowing out immediately then begin writing by rephrasing the question. For example, “I want at this point in my life…”
  4. Just write whatever comes – do not edit. Also know that it will feel made up at first – you are not “faking” it – that’s just how it feels until you move into place of more trust. Consider the information “imagined” instead of “faked” – it’s much more playful that way!
  5. Keep asking additional questions that stem from the first one. Questions like, “What’s my first step in making that happen” or “Why do I want that right now” or “Who do I need to ask for help with this”.
  6. Go until you run out of steam and then look over what you’ve written.

This exercise is a great way to tap into the guidance that is always with you. That’s what’s so great about Energy Therapy – it allows us to get guidance from your “Higher Self” so you are able to move forward.

As Summer becomes Fall and the energy shifts, it is time to re-focus on your questions. And as always I am here, ready to help you ask, answer and manifest your heart’s desire.

A 2.44 Minute Lesson on Compassion Guaranteed to Wow You

 

“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.” Dalai Lama

The most exciting thing about each new day is the anticipation of what unexpected goodies might come your way.

We all get very busy with our lives. Lost in deep thought, wrapped up in our to do lists, in a hurry to get from point A to point B, yet there are so many gifts in every single day that we often overlook in our hustle and bustle.

Please take 2.44 minutes and listen to this wonderful story. It will open your heart and perhaps open your eyes to some gift your day has in store for you that you might otherwise have missed.

Lose 10 Pounds of Emotional Baggage Fast

Life Coaching with Energy Therapy Breaks Your Past Chains

Would you like to feel 10 pounds lighter? Do you want a quick, easy way to stop carrying around all that past baggage that has built up in your life?

If so then here’s your answer.

By fusing Energy Therapy modalities with Life Coaching techniques a reaction is created that clears away past subconscious programing and baggage so you can move forward with ease.

We are all a product of our past experiences, thoughts and actions. But if you are looking to improve your outcomes then Life Coaching with Energy Therapy is your best bet.

Life Coaching is very different than regular talk therapy because it is focused on where you are and where you want to go rather than on past events. But, what if past events are affecting where you are and where you want to go? That’s why adding Energy Therapy is the answer.

Life Coaching boosted with Energy Therapy modalities can access your subconscious blocks and move aside those things that are holding you back. The real gift is these are things that you can not access in regular conscious therapy or coaching.

So if you’ve ever felt like you’ve hashed and rehashed your past and yet you still have not moved forward to the extent that you’d like then this is your answer.

A good analogy of how your subconscious mind works is the studies done on babies and the visual cliff. Babies who are just crawling are placed on a plexiglass table where one side looks shallow and the other seems to drop off. The parent is on the “deep” side coaxing the baby across.

Psychologists have found out two very important things from this test.

One, that the expressions of the trusted parent directly affects the babies performance. If the parent shows a fear face as the baby starts toward the deep end the baby stops crawling. In like manner, if the parent is smiling and nodding yes, the baby scampers across.

Secondly, psychologists have found that babies who are first crawling do not seem to show an inherent fear of the deep side because they have very little experience with falling. However, babies a few months older, and who have experienced falling, have a much stronger avoidance reaction to the deep end, even when their parent is coaxing them to cross.

This is how your subconscious mind develops. There are negative events that have happened to you that have encoded in your subconscious. These patterns or messages run in your subconscious background in an effort to protect you from harm.

Perhaps they served you when they were formed, but they are no longer the patterns you want running twenty years later. Energy Therapy enables us to go in and turn off those messages and re-encode new messages that are more productive.

So, if you’ve ever felt like that you bump in to an invisible wall when you try to move forward, see what a powerful difference Life Coaching infused with Energy Therapy can do for you.

Here are some of my Life Coaching success stories from other clients. You can also get more information about the power of Energy Therapy at my Life Coaching website.

Do You Want to Harness Spring’s Powerful Energy for Your Life?

Spring Transformation

Spring Transformation by Joan Compton

One of the main gifts of Spring is it causes us to be hyper aware of our surroundings. Our senses have been somewhat dormant throughout the Winter and then Spring bursts forth with vibrant colors, fragrances, new life and light.

This hyper awareness is a gift because it brings the contrasts of our life into sharp focus. For example, as new flowers begin to bloom in your flower bed you can not notice them without also noticing the weeding that needs to be done and the fact that the bed needs more mulch.

Spring is about Liver Energy, which is all about planning, organizing and carrying out. However, Spring is so powerful it is easy to get overwhelmed with the sensory overload and have your Liver Energy flip into its pathological state of anger, anxiety and stuckness.

How you take advantage of the gifts of Spring is up to you. If you’ve had projects or ideas that you’ve been avoiding now is the time to harness and channel the abundant energy the Universe is supplying you toward getting going forward in your life.

One of the things I suggest to clients is to consciously focus on one thing at a time to minimize overwhelm. For example, as you are outside enjoying the beauty that surrounds you, focus only on the color green. See how many different shades of green you can discern. Notice the different vibrations each shade emanates and how they each make you feel.

Your situation is as totally unique as a field of wildflowers. Whatever tasks or decisions you want to harness the creative powers of Spring for need a specialized plan. Right now is the time to co-create your personal Spring Intention, so give me a call.

You can experience the exhilarating power of new growth as it runs through your life’s field. Setting up your Spring Intention is the quickest way to become in sync with the electric energy flowing through the Universe right now and be able to channel it into your own unique purpose.

Here are some other articles which deal with healing and change:

Please let me know your thoughts on this topic. Please post a comment and continue this discussion. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Some Amazing Benefits of the BodyTalk System

bodytalk system healingThe BodyTalk System is grabing the attention of many people. It is a fusion of Western healing methods that have a proven track record as well as Eastern traditional practices that have withstood the test of time and science.

As an alternative healing method, it promotes holistic wellness in the human body and mind by working with it as a whole system instead of as an isolated set of parts. The healing benefits are all achieved without the aggressiveness of surgury, injections, or drugs.

Your Physical Systems

The BodyTalk System works as either a stand alone therapy or in partnership with other healing modalities. These other healing methods can include any Western type treatments or Eastern treatment forms like yoga and acupuncture. The inclusive and holistic nature of the BodyTalk System acts as a booster when used in conjunction with other healing methods.

For example, if you are on thyroid medicine, the BodyTalk System can align your body with the medicine so it works more effectively. By integrating the medicine into your body’s systems you recieve a greater benefit because your body is not fighting against something it percieves as an intruder.

Many common physical health issues are addressed by this system. A sampling of these physical issues include but aren’t limited to: arthritis, allergies, headaches, fibromyalgia and acute chronic fatigue,  intestinal parasites, reproductive disorders, digestive disorders, organ and endocrine dysfunctions, acute and chronic infections and back and body pain.

Each session treats specific imbalances in the body before moving on to the next health concern so as to avoid body overload.

Your Mental Systems

The BodyTalk System also addresses mental and emotional concerns, such as stress or anxiety and learning and behavioral disorders, such as ADD and ADHD. These are all often a root cause of physical symptoms that manifest as illness the body. It is your body’s way of alerting you to an imbalance in your system as a whole.

Some other of these problems include: depression, emotional problems, and fears and phobias. Although total results are not always instantaneous, after each session some clients feel a overall general sense of well-being.

If you are looking for a modality to expand your personal development in order to make your life better, this healing method will help you. As your sense of well-being in terms of your mental and physical aspects is restored, your sense of self-confidence can be restored as well. You are literally being healed inside and out.

Your Session Information

Every BodyTalk session is unique. BodyTalk practitioners are guided by your own Innate Wisdom to address what’s needed for you at the time. Each session can have a totally different flavor.

whole life coachingSince the healing is energy based many people have fantastic results with phone or long distance sessions. This helps make sessions more convienent in terms of your time and travel. You’ll be amazed at how powerful and noticeable the positive effects of the BodyTalk System are in your life. 

When you have in person sessions, you lie down on a massage table in order to relax your whole body. You will also be asked to take off your shoes, watch and jewelry since metal or magnetic things can impede the flow of the treatment. You will stay fully dressed as it is not necessary to disrobe.

An experienced BodyTalk System practitioner can truly do wonders for the human body and mind. As this is a process of removing your conscious and subconscious blocks, you’ll easily and quickly return to your natural state of health.

Energy Therapy Healing

Energy Therapy Healing creates results by aligning your mind/body/spirit complex. By working on a vibrational level all three of these systems are employed to bring you back to your natural state of health and happiness.

 

Energy Therapy Healing has been used for thousands of years in every culture. It acknowledges that your body/mind/spirit complex has the imprint of perfect health and well-being, it just might need some assistance in re-activating that imprint.

 

Stress and trauma can throw off our natural balance, so in order to re-align we need to “re-boot” our Innate computer so it can run its original perfect programming.

 

Fortunately, if you have the correct tools this is easy to accomplish. If you’d like to know how this can help you directly, please give me a call. I’m extending a free 15 minute phone consultation so you can get all your questions answered.
