Do you worry about things all the time? Do you fret over everything? Do you think of the worse possible scenarios? If so, do you realize that worrying is just your imagination creating something that you don’t want?
I catch myself worrying about the craziest, most ridiculous stuff! Actually, it’s not really worrying that I do so much, but I’ll just have crazy ideas pop in my head. For instance, almost every time I drive over a train track I think, for just a brief moment, what if a train comes barreling down and slams into me. Or if I’m driving behind a truck that has a ladder or something sticking off the back I might think what if that ladder slides off the truck and goes right into my windshield and nails me in the face. Basically, I just think of freak accidents happening to me &/or my family. It’s so weird. I hate it.
Like I said, worrying is just the imagination creating scenarios that you don’t want! So, when I have these wild thoughts I immediately catch myself doing it and I snap out of it. “Only good things come to me” is one of my mantras!
Being a firm believer in the , I understand that thinking about things I don’t want only brings those unwanted things to me. So I stop in my tracks (not on the train tracks – haha) and I think about what I want. I only want good things to come to me. And honestly…only good things do come to me.
If you worry a lot all you’re doing is imagining things happening that you don’t want to happen. With all that energy focused on those unwanted things, you’re likely to manifest what you don’t want. Then you get this scenario that you don’t want and it causes more worry. More worry, creates more worry. It’s a vicious circle!
The good news is that this works in the opposite way as well. The less you worry, the less stuff you have to worry about.
The worrying has to stop. Seriously. If you think about it, most of the things you worry about don’t ever happen anyway so what’s the point? It’s wasted energy. It’s puts you in a funk, and it causes stress. And I won’t even get on the topic of what stress does to you!! Worry cannot change your circumstance, it only enhances it.
So here’s the deal. Next time you start to worry, notice what you’re doing, and immediately stop. Give yourself a mantra or affirmation. They’re extremely powerful.
Only good things come to me.
I choose to let go and allow goodness.
I am safe.
I choose to let go of things I have no control over.
I trust that everything will work out.
At first you may be saying these things as you’re rolling your eyes, but eventually you start to believe it. When you start to believe it, you start to have faith that everything will work out. That faith is what allows you to stop worrying.
