“Psychologist David Seabury says that the best piece of advice his father ever gave him was to practice positive mental imagery – immediately and ‘on cue,’ so to speak, whenever he became aware of negative feelings. Negative feelings literally defeated themselves by becoming a sort of ‘bell’ which set off a conditioned reflex to arouse positive states of mind.” Psycho-Cybernetics
So how do you incorporate positive mental imagery in your life?
1. You change the way you feel by changing the mental picture you have of your situation.
2. You begin each day with exercises that help you go through the whole day without resistance.
3. You have a burning desire in mind, a GOAL.
Don’t let potential negative thoughts or situations impact the view of your goal.
Someone told me (many years ago), “Out of bad comes good”.
It wasn’t until years later, looking back on my life and the “bad” situations I had gone through, that I understood exactly what she meant.
No I don’t EVER want to experience the “bad” again, but I can sincerely tell you (now that I’m well past them) what was on the other side was “good”. It didn’t always turn out the way I had wanted, but if I took the time to examine the outcome, I learned valuable lessons and life was better.
Train your mind to practice positive mental imagery. Keep a vision of your goal in your mind. Understand there will be turns in your life you don’t want to take, but stay in a positive state of mind.
Life is a blessing and we only have today on our journey through time.
