I love that idea – that repetition impresses the subconscious, and we are then master of the situation. I can’t always control my thoughts, and sometimes my thoughts are not fun. But I can try to replace them, and sometimes I just talk louder than my thoughts and drown them out!
Here is the first exercise from my book This Way Up: Seven Tools for Unleashing Your Creative Self and Transforming Your Life – from Part Two – The Workbook – Week One, Day Three.
This exercise is about replacing negative self-chatter with deliberate, conscious words. When I’m feeling really scared and small, and fear is all I can feel, sometimes I stomp my feet and yell the words! . . . *yeah and it’s true – sometimes I just curl up in fetal position and hide… But when I am able to unfurl from fetal, then I stomp my feet and yell!
Here is the exercise from the workbook – Week One – Day Three.
I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it helps.
Please let me know if it is helpful at all for you in replacing negative chatter. And as always thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.
