What's on your mind?
Facebook ask us this every time we logg in, but have you really taken the time to think about it?
We have approximately 80,000 thoughts per day. Studies have shown that 95% of these thoughts are the same as those we had yesterday, and those that we will have tomorrow. Imagine that, 95% of our thoughts are the same! Our brain is lazy it wants to do the same thing over and over again because it takes more energy to create new connections than to use the old ones.
Our thoughts create our reality so what we think about is really important if we want to change something. To change the thoughts you need to become aware of them and consciously explore them. In this way you can discover thought patterns and connections that could be hard to discover otherwise. One way of doing this is by writing your thoughts down or having someone to help you see your thoughts, like a coach.
I do a writing process every morning and I would like to share it with you. It is the one exercise that has helped me the most in my process of change. I first learned it from Anna Åberg with influences from the book '40 days of miracles', and now I have created my own version. Before I started this process, I had not been able to maintain a writing habit. I had tried with journals and thankfulness exercises, and it usually worked for about a week. I have been doing this exercise consistently for over a year and will continue doing it. It makes such a big difference for me and my clients that has gone trough it, and therefore I want to share it with you.
Start a new document on the computer, write the days date, and then start with the sentence:
Today I am in contact with… (What you feel, for example, tiredness, confusion, longing.)
Elaborate what you are in contact with. Write everything you think and experience.
Finish of with:
I receive everything I am… (what you are and feel)
I am grateful that I can feel these emotions
It’s best to write the first thing in the morning. You can choose if you want to set a timer for 10 minutes or you can write for as long as you like. Afterwards your journaling buddy will observe your writing and you will observe theirs.
