Choose your thoughts and change your life (for the better)
Vianna's New Life Experiment helps us to be happier people. We don't realise how much we bring our mood down when we complain, whinge or criticise. Or how much we bring others down when we are negative. We have the power to control the negativity we put out into the world. If you catch yourself thinking a negative thought or speaking a negative word you can cancel it or start thinking about something else. This is often easier
when you think of something (or someone) that brings you joy.
Negativity consumes an incredible amount of energy. By changing your habitual thoughts and choosing a positive thought instead of a negative one, you are choosing a more positive life for yourself and those around you. If we practiced this list on a daily basis we would all be much happier and more joyful.
The New Life Experiment: No complaining. No whining. No being overly critical. No being overly judgmental. No poking fun at others. No being cynical or facetious (pessimistic or flippant) No creating reasons to be sorry or to say you're sorry out of habit. No creating reasons to be stressed. No creating reasons to be unhappy. No affirming negative thoughts such as ‘I’m overweight.’ No affirming negative feelings such as ‘I’m depressed.’ No making reasons to be angry. No making or seeking out reasons to overcome others, fight, struggle or enter into combat (more than necessary). No making reasons to be anxious. No making reasons to be overwhelmed. No making reasons to worry. No making reasons for self-doubt. No creating situations of lack or scarcity with statements such as ‘I don’t have enough energy.’ Instead make the claim ‘I have plenty.’ No creating chaos or drama for entertainment, excitement, adventure, or thrills, or to avoid peace. No ‘wrong’ or ‘right’, ‘better’ or 'worse’, ‘should’, ‘hope’ or ‘try’. ( Excerpt from 'Theta Healing', by Vianna Stibal)
