You are the light, and you are here on Earth to light up the world. When you feel your very best, you're out in the world doing your best. It’s only when you feel hurt that you could hurt others.
Join this episode to learn about the journey your soul is taking through the darkness to remember who you really are. You’ll learn rituals to increase your positivity and help you shine your light the brightest.
Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:
[05:17] Remembering Who We Are
We're walking through this world of darkness to remember who we really are. And who we are is not the pain and the hurt and the suffering and the darkness – who we are is the light. We can only know that light – love, joy, peace, forgiveness, and compassion – when we experience the opposite of it. When we get stuck in those bad mood emotions, we're like a magnet for more bad things and more things that attract circumstances that prove that those emotions are valid and worthwhile. So if we do things that are negative, we'll feel more negative.
[17:23] Rituals to Make You Feel Good
Be mindful that your brain is not you. Choose which thoughts you want to believe and which ones to pass on by. Limit the inputs that are negative. Eliminate the news. Watch positive shows. Unfollow people in your social media feed that make you feel bad. Stay away from things that trigger negative thoughts such as fast food, alcohol, pornography, and lack of sleep. Finally, feed your brain with positive inputs and make a list of the things that make you feel good.
[25:29] The Power of Meditation, Exercise, Journaling, and Reading
(1) Meditation allows you to separate yourself from the thoughts that your brain is giving you. (2) Journal - Write three things you did well the day before. Then write three things you’re grateful for. Get super small on gratitude, whether that’s your cup of coffee this morning or the electricity in your house. Then write down the top three goals in your life. (3) Read. Feed your brain with something positive. (4) Exercise - It's scientifically proven that if you exercise, you feel good. When you work out, you feel good about yourself and it increases your confidence.
[05:17] You are walking through this world of darkness to remember who you really are… You are the light. [05:30]
[06:23] Humans have about 70,000 thoughts a day… how many do you think are positive and how many do you think are negative? [06:33]
[23:41] Here's the truth. When you feel on top of the world, what can you accomplish? Anything! [23:48]
