ROLLER COASTERS OR MERRY-GO-ROUNDS?
Hello again Dear Friends,
Is your emotional life a roller coaster with huge swings from highs to lows, back a forth? Or is life kind of boring just going around and around in the same less then exciting place?
Where's the best place to try and place ourselves emotionally in order to get the most out of life, in order to have the most fun, in order to be the healthiest?
I just came across the best answer I have ever heard to this question. The very best place to be in order to maximize your life's potential is the "POISED CENTER".
The "POISED CENTER" is that wonderful place where you flow with life and all it brings you. When you're on top of the world there's a peace and humility that allows for maximum enjoyment without over doing it. When things aren't going so well, and it happens to us all, the "POISED CENTER" allows us to stay in perspective, not overact, and avoid crumbling into a puddle.
There's an old school of thought that the higher your highs, then the lower your lows, and my experience personally and with others bears this out. The goal is to love ourselves and love our life experience, and consistently coming from that "POISED CENTER" increases the probability of this occurring.
What's the best way to find and maintain the "POISED CENTER"? As usual, it's by controlling our daily thoughts, emotions, and words.
The power of controlling our mind and thoughts is an immense and often times difficult job. Positive self talk helps but I personally find controlling my thoughts next to impossible without a regular practice of meditation, where I first slow down the mind and then conscientiously direct my thoughts in a desired direction.
Do affirmations help in controlling and directing thoughts? Yes they do, if and only if there is deep heartfelt emotion delivered with the personal affirmations. Merely speaking words without heart have limited power in creating our desired path.
The continued misuse and misunderstanding of the power of our words is enormous in our society today. Almost every person I regularly encounter utters words filled with fear, anger, uncertainty, and negativity. We all must learn to understand that our words have energetic strength and the more destructive our spoken words the more negativity we invite into our lives making the achievement of the "POISED CENTER" more and more difficult to maintain.
Take a moment, right now, and envision AND FEEL that "POISED EMOTIONAL CENTER", and from this place go out and make it a GREAT DAY!
With Love and Appreciation.
