My head is full of thoughts, some not so positive. To overcome this I do the work of my mentor, Arion Light: The Activation School. I have heard and studied many forms of the statement that we become what we think and that self-talk is paramount if you wish to succeed in life.
I sought out head not heart stuff most of the time, it had an effect for a while, but it wore off as my head took control again as it was well trained to put me in my place. I’m now working primarily with the body and accepting that I have held locks in my body that I need to accept and work through.
So what have we said about self-talk over the ages, let’s go on the journey:
1. First of all, we must acknowledge that it is extremely powerful, it can turn you from a pussycat into a lion with a different empowering interpretation.
2. Yes we are, and we tend to believe what we hear. So gently with the demeaning stuff: Thinking Out Loud.
3. As Barack says, Yes we can, Yes we did.
4. Jeff Brown, a canadian writer created a word I love: Enrealment. What you put after these two words is your enrealment: Wayne Dyer’s thoughts.
5. Not actually the four buddhist vows but just as powerful in the area of self-talk.
6. What would the education system be able to achieve with our dear ones if this was on the cirriculum: Teach Your Children.
7. And not only you hear it, that big bad universe will plot with the thoughts.
8. Get the chalk out and scuttle those first two letters and get on with it: Possibility.
9. Take actions on the thhings in this list, and the affirmation will work. Actions not words work.

11. When Einstein said this – Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand he didn’t mean to do the above.
12. What happens when you reach your goals, what is your journey then. It ends the day they put you in your form of the grave you prefer, love the journey: Just Stand Up.
13. Looks like thats he’s about to jump. There is a quote on the wall where I work. Jump off and learn how to fly on the way down. Get rid of these things and you have a greater chance of success.
14. There is a prize if people remember who Rhonda Byrne is. I like her imaging though: Soundtrack Whistle.
15. Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali, he was the greatest as both beings.
Remember the words you put in your body, it has a good memory. Practise being with them and you will be surprised the essence that will rise.
Namaste until next time, my dear friends.
It’s strange the things we tell ourselves can cause us to be our own worst enemy. It takes quite a bit of practice to simply note such self talk and not take it as the truth. I used to think you could make it go away forever however, based on life experience, I now see it as something I will be living with throughout life, but these days, it doesn’t bother me as much as it did when I was younger.
