Words originate from your thoughts. And thoughts are based on your beliefs which are merely your own interpretation of past experiences and the current influences in your life.
If you’re not happy with the state of your current experience, perhaps you need to be mindful of the words you are speaking out loud and to yourself. Are they based on feelings of unworthiness or scarcity? It’s usually one of the two.
In today’s blog I will ask you to examine the origins of your inner dialogue and assess whether or not your thoughts serve or disempower you. If they’re thoughts that prevent you from living a joyful life, then perhaps it’s time to shift your perspective.
I read a great article a few years ago written by Madisyn Taylor about the study of hado, and since this month’s theme is based on the joy habit of Be Thoughtful from my book Being Joy™, I wanted to share it with you.
Madisyn echoes the many energy medicine practitioners who understand principles like the Japanese state of hado, by saying that “the study of hado tells us that the energetic vibrations from our thoughts affect our physical realities.” She goes on to explain that hado is a concept that has existed in Japan for centuries and that the Japanese word hado means “wave” and “move”. It’s the life force that exists in all things.
She explains that we all have the ability to manifest specific intentions by the hado that we send out, but we are usually not aware of the power of our thoughts.
Our thoughts create vibrations in the world outside of our minds. And once we become more mindful of the ramifications of our thoughts, we can start to shift our thinking away from disempowering ones. Like in the affirmation from last week’s blog, by complimenting more and criticizing less, by collaborating more and competing less and by contributing more and complaining less, it will be much easier for you to remember your joy – your natural state of peaceful being.
So the question is, what reality do you want to live in? Remember, you get to write your own story!
I’ll close by sharing a powerful quote from Gregg Braden that I like to remind myself of every day. It’s all about the choices. So please choose wisely.
“Ancient spiritual traditions remind us that in each moment of the day, we make the choices that either affirm or deny our lives. Every second we choose to nourish ourselves in a way that supports or depletes our lives; to breathe deep and life-affirming breaths or shallow, life-denying ones; and to think and speak about other people in a manner that is honoring or dishonoring.”
Love from your Joy Mama,
P.S. If you haven’t already read my book Being Joy™, it’s a simple 40-day practice of replacing old self-defeating beliefs with new empowering joy habits. It may help you to fulfill Gregg Braden’s call to action about choosing a life that affirms you rather than one that depletes you. Order your copy here!
