Happiness is not a fleeting thing
happiness can be a permanent state of mind.
For that is what happiness is –
a state of mind.
Mind is the part of you that feels,
not the part of you that thinks,
this is your brain.
If you see mind as the part of you that feels,
and feelings emanate from thought,
then that is where your thinking comes into play.
Scientists say that chemical changes
take place in your brain and stimulate feelings.
They do not consider the power of your thoughts.
Which comes first the thought or the feeling?
Which stimulates which?
It is easier to capture your thoughts as you think them,
there fore it is easier to control your thoughts
and there by change your feelings.
In this complex machine we exist in called our body,
it seems easier to say I have no control.
For taking control means you need to acknowledge your thoughts
and then take responsibility for them.
There is no one else in your head except you,
so only you are the one thinking in there.
External forces can exert a pressure on you,
but only you are responsible for your responses to these pressures.
Take control today; check in on your thoughts,
realize that which you are thinking and change your thoughts.
We all have heard of the power of positive thinking,
so we know how important it is,
yet it is very difficult to change
from negative thinking
to positive thinking.
I have a simple solution,
that I have used with clients over many years.
So simple yet it works so well
just picture a rose!
It does not matter what your rose looks like,
on one day it may be pink, the next red,
one day it may be in full bloom
the next a bud,
the image does not matter.
The rose is the symbol of love
and this is the message you are giving yourself.
This is the go between step from negative to positive thoughts,
picture the rose and suddenly you have a change of focus,
simple yet so powerful.
Start growing your bed of roses today.
