Harmony Begins With You!
Have you ever felt out of sorts? It feels like nothing seems to be going right in your life? All of your endeavors appear fruitless? Your relationships are skewed, finances in disarray? Health problems plague you? Even the weather and your plans aren’t cooperating? Well, there may be an easy explanation for the confusion you are enduring.
Harmony begins with you.
It’s a simple solution, but some may balk at the notion that the chaos you are experiencing is manifested by the inharmonious thoughts in your own mind. Perhaps, I can show you what I mean.
Let’s experiment. Today, let’s look carefully at our thoughts, actions and words. Try for 15 minutes to notice what you are thinking, writing, believing, saying and doing. What negativity do you observe? You may find your mind is bombarding you with worry, fear, regret, anger and resentment. These feelings manifest themselves in your daily life, wreaking havoc in every plan and experience. It’s a vicious cycle that only you can change. And the best news is, You Can!
Back in 2012, I wrote about a favorite book that I reread when I need a gentle reminder to clear myself and realign my thinking. Here is the post. At the time, I even did a series of posts on Florence Scovel Shinn’s books, taking tidbits which I felt highlighted the essence of what she was writing and sharing what I felt pertained to most of us at that time in my life.
Recently I picked up the book again to re-ignite the harmony which I felt was missing. Many of her affirmations jumped out at me, but one in particular resonates and I think it might be helpful to you.
I am poised, harmonious and magnetic.
So my prescription to you, should find yourself in the above situations is this:
Rx ~ Read, write, speak aloud the affirmation above today 10x.
Be grateful for your poise, harmony and magnetism.
Simply take a moment out of your day at small intervals and repeat the Rx.
Do this for a few days and see how your mind/life responds.
Be aware when you are thinking negatively. Stay conscious as you go about your day. Think twice before spewing anger and instead, simply repeat the affirmation. It may feel funny at first, but feel free to try. You may just notice that harmony begins to enrich your life; pathways open, you feel better, opportunities arise and you are enveloped in a peaceful embrace by the Universe.
Let me know what you think! Have you ever heard of Florence Scovel Shinn?
