There are many ways that we can pamper ourselves. Take a hot bath with scented oils. Get a massage. Take a nap. Buy ourselves flowers, a gift, take a walk in nature, see a movie with a friend…but we don’t think about pampering ourself with the thoughts that we allow to overtake our mind and body.
Every thought that we have holds either a negative or positive energy that affects our entire selves. Our thoughts don’t just stay in our mind, they filter through to every cell in our body. They get embedded in our blood, our skin, our bones. They get into every nook and crevice. They park themselves inside of us creating havoc in our bodies if they are negative thoughts.
Every thought dictates our well being. Every thought heals us or not, makes us feel happy or not, loving or not, angry or not. Every thought creates a feeling which creates an emotion, which creates our experience, which creates our actions. And with every thought we have every day, we’re living and experiencing our life.
I’m making August a month of mindful pampering for me. Reminding myself every week of another area I’ve been neglecting. Life happens and things just get away from me and I have to bring myself back to what’s important for me. Living everyday mindfully and consciously aware of what thoughts and words I allow into my mind and body. What I allow to rule, regulate and shape me, helps me to stay more open to what’s important for me, and that is filling myself with loving healing energy and connected with Divine Mother.
What I do is I set my intention to be conscious of negative thoughts I’m holding on to. It may be something someone said at work, or something that I’m thinking about myself. Words that I’m using to berate myself, thoughts of not being good enough…I stop myself, I thank that thought for being here and I tell it I don’t need it anymore and I change it to a positive thought. I only hold on to good loving thoughts about myself.
My trick for reminding myself to only hold on to words and thoughts that are empowering for me, is I place sticky notes around my house to remind myself. I’ll write on them – be conscious of your thoughts. I’ll place a sticky note on my bathroom mirror, on my refrigerator, on my computer, on the table where I sit, on the dashboard of my car, anyplace where I will see them throughout the day. I deserve good thoughts. This works like magic.
Inner calm, a feeling of peace, living at a higher vibration. Feeling in harmony with universal forces, manifesting our desires, all of this happens when we remove the negative thoughts that block us, limit us, disempower us, that are influencing our every day living.
So make August a month of pampering yourself with thoughts that uplift and heal!
