Publisher and Editor in Chief of “Healing our World” magazine, Sabrina Ciceri shared the following article in the Volume 37 edition of their magazine. It caught my eye and the thought resonated so profoundly with me that I wanted to share it with you all today. Bob Wischmeier
“A book I read more than 10 years ago opened my eyes to the reality that we can control our thoughts. It is a process for me as I continue to train my mind to think positively and to change the negative things that come to mind here and there instinctively.
I and probably many others, have been taught from birtth about Murphy’s Law, that ‘anything that can go wrong will go wrong’. I learned the phrases ‘trust no one’, ‘life stinks, then you die’, ‘no one does anything for you for free’, and ‘what can you do for me?’
This created an all around negative environment that caused me to look for the bad in people and expect everything to be tough.
My spirit knew better, yet I couldn’t stop myself from always thinking of something negative when anyone was around or in conversation. This wasn’t pleasant for me or those around me.
Then I began to replace that stinkin’ thinkin’ with a happy, positive, truthful thought. I posted affirmations on tbright index cards around my house. I red books that reminded me of the goodness in the world and solididied what I knew to be true about others. Turns out the majorit of people are good and honest.
It was a conscious effort at first, but relieving at the same time. In my heart I did see good in people and in life. I am a happy person, but my thoughts often prevented my heart from living joyfully. They robbed me of my peace.
What had to be a conscious effort at first became instinct after just a short while. I live now as a very happy positive, grateful human being. And if I can train my brain to think differently, anyone can.
Wishing you much health and happiness,
