Choose Your Thoughts by Daydreaming

My good friend Darcy gave me a book for my birthday a couple of years ago, You are the Placebo by Dr. Joe Dispenza. It was eye opening in terms of his work in the mind-body connection for healing, growing, and thriving. His books and courses all speak to the inciting incident of having healed himself after being run over during a bike ride that caused several breaks in his spine. He speaks often to the amazing healing power of our bodies, and I found this quote compelling:
"Your brain and body don't know the difference between having an actual experience in your life and just thinking about the experience - neurochemically, it's the same." Joe Dispenza *

Having heard a similar idea that your mind doesn’t know the difference between something real and something vividly imagined, Dr. Dispenza goes on to say, "Your thoughts are incredibly powerful. Choose yours wisely."*

To be careful about your thoughts is important on so many levels. Having negative thoughts attract more negativity while positive ones bring positivity.  Our days are filled with many distractions so it’s easy to forget the simple idea of thoughts becoming things.

Try This: Choose Your Thoughts by Daydreaming

During the week, take stock in what you think about. From the positive uplifting thoughts to the negative, downtrodden thoughts, what you choose to focus on impacts your day. To have a great day, here's an idea:

  • If you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed, daydream for five minutes every morning.
  • To start, take 5 deep breaths, very slowly in and out. This is to relax and calm you.
  • Next, look out the window, at a favorite photo, or a fun object on your desk. The key is that you look at something pleasing that makes you smile.
  • Empty your mind and ask yourself to describe the perfect day. Simple things can be powerful motivators in your mind.
  • Grab a notepad and pen to jot down whatever starts to come to mind. If it's something for your To Do list, put it on another sheet.
  • Smile as you finish writing about the good things you imagined during your daydream.

A fun thing is to keep your notes, particularly to look back to see what came true or how you uncovered special things you want to accomplish. Sometimes I look back to see what has transpired from my daydreaming and feel the joy when one of my perfect day ideas comes true!
