It has been said:
Argue for your limitations and they are yours.
Our self talk, the sometimes incessant chatter that we carry in our minds, shapes our experience and forecasts our future. Chronic patterns of negative thinking and self talk will sabotage goals and can affect our health. The founder of chiropractic, DD Palmer found that subluxations can be caused by traumas, toxins and toxic thoughts. I call them mental subluxations and it is imperative that we correct them. BJ Palmer wrote that innate thoughts are positive in nature will thoughts of the educated mind tend to be negative.
How do we correct these mental subluxations?
The first step is by becoming aware of them. Often times, our self talk tape is running and we have no idea consciously of the chatter. Wake up! Work on becoming aware of every thought you think. Then replace the negative thought with a more constructive thought. If you look in the mirror and the thought is; “I’m fat.” Change it to an expression of how you would love to look. As me mentor Dr Sid Williams says:
Quit saying I can’t and start saying I can!
Step two is to be persistent in changing your mental sate.
Finally, stop programming yourself with negative input. Read positive, growth centred material, turn off the TV, socialize with positive people and start looking at challenges as evolutionary opportunities instead of problems. You will also be expressing more of your authentic self as you break this programming down.
As EE Cummings reminded us:
To be nobody but yourself
in a world which is doing its best, night and day,
to make you everybody else
means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight;
and never stop fighting.
Remember what you think about comes about.
