At any given moment we are being bombarded with 400 billion bits of information. Yet we can only recognize 2000 of those bits.
We get to choose where to put our focus.
How do we decide where to place our focus?
First, we have to be aware.
95% of our day is being controlled by our subconscious mind.
If we do not make a conscious effort, we will continue to do the same things over and over. If fact, they could very well be the same things our parents and grandparents did.
We are the only species on earth that can consciously change our thoughts.
How do we do that?
There are 4 steps that need to happen to actually change our thoughts.... and create new, more life giving, ways of thinking.
Vibrant Living Tip
Follow this 4-step method. The "AIRR" method, like oxygen, can breathe new life into your thoughts and your life.
Awareness - bring awareness to your current habitual ways of thinking. Notice the words you say to yourself and to others (your words are a window to your thoughts), for example you may hear yourself saying…
"I've never be good with money".
"I'm an emotional eater."
"I'm better off alone."
Interrupt - Whenever you find yourself saying these words, use a powerful pattern interrupt. Say -
"Up until now..." OR "I used to...."
Release - then release the old, negative way of thinking
Replace - replace it with a new, more empowering thought.
I used to think I wasn't good with money, NOW I'm masterful at managing my money and I'm getting better everyday.
Up until now, I thought of myself as an emotional eater, NOW, when I experience difficult emotions, I give thanks for my ability to feel deeply and I practice self care with restorative yoga poses.
I used to think I was better off alone, NOW I realize that I have a lot of love to give, and I'm worthy of being deeply loved and am open to calling in the perfect life partner.
