Loving Yourself: Creating A New Paradigm

Monday, March 25, 2013


“Take control now. Forget about the negative thoughts which others have told you – that you are too old or too young. Stop letting the thoughts of others rule your life; stop being weak and cowardly, blaming your lack of progress on those negative programs. If you begin now and become a “do-er”, you will have earned your right to remain here.” ~ Thomas D. Willhite.

We have spent the last month learning and practicing techniques to help us to stop our negative thought patterns so that we may become the person we wish to be. We are continuing to move forward in working on the declarations of “Our Body Pledge”. We now need to begin to nourish the mind by becoming more positive in our thinking so that we can bring about the changes we desire in our lives more quickly.

Is something bothering you today that you find yourself thinking about, and can’t seem to get it out of your head? Do you realize that “in truth” a problem exists only in your mind? Remember the mind cannot tell the difference between a thought and reality. A problem is a thought - something we perceive as “bad” and do not want; it interferes with living our life as we would wish. We are going to begin to create our new reality.

The first step to get rid of the problem is to let it go; to let go of the thought i.e., the problem. This was last week’s practical exercises. It is a basic law of physics that two things cannot occupy the same space at the same time. So if you can let go of the negative/problematic thought, it frees up space for your mind to begin to see possibilities and opportunities that it didn’t have room for before. Now we should have gotten rid of a lot of “mind clutter”, and we can begin rebuilding our foundation from the inside out.

We are going to now begin to construct a more positive self. We are going to acknowledge the inner truth of what we wish to believe about ourselves – things we know to be true. We’ll have to cultivate them because we now know that some of them will be buried very deeply by those negative thoughts through our life experiences.
As soon as we begin to focus our thinking in this new direction, you’ll begin seeing things from a different perspective, and problems will no longer overwhelm you. So we will stop our new negative thoughts with the techniques that have worked for us, and we will begin this phase of self-affirmation.

As you practice this, it will become easier, and you’ll find your problems will become short-lived, your life will become less stressful, you will become happier, and you will become more accepting and loving of yourself.


“Like the wind that carries one ship east and another west, the law of auto-suggestion will lift you up or pull you down according to the way that you set your sails of thought.” ~ Napoleon Hill

“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results” ~ William Nelson

“The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

    "It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something."
– Franklin D. Roosevelt

Take the positive of others as wind in your sails, let the positive of self be the rudder, let the negative be the water you're cutting through.

    What a wonderful blog! For sure it takes practice to fill that negativity void with positive messages, but it is so worth the effort!

    This is a message that resonants with me today. Deepak's meditation which I listened to today also talked about mindfulness and be aware of what we are doing and thinking. I've decided to think well of myself. So, thank you for your post.
