Ever noticed when you’re feeling a bit low, maybe at the onset of a cold and someone says, “you look rough.” You suddenly think, “do I”? “It must be man flu.” And you create that reality and it probably progresses to man flu (not to be taken as lightly man flu is real).
Or, how when you’re out with friends, having a great time and someone gets a phone call with bad news. All of you suddenly feel instantly sad, the room seems less bright, the music less enjoyable?
We can change our realities in an instant just with the power of an emotion.
Emotions are by far the most powerful thing on our planet. If someone could invent an emotional time bomb all other weapons would be obsolete.
In an instant we can change how we feel or think about something and that literally colours our world.
But here’s the thing. So many people come to me with a belief created by an emotion, a belief that is holding them back. For example ‘I am not good enough’, ‘I am not attractive’. This belief was created in seconds. So why do people struggle with the concept that what can be created in seconds by an emotion can’t be corrected in seconds by a more positive one.
Ever heard the saying be careful what you wish for? It’s the same thing. Be careful what you allow yourself to think.
No one can make you think, feel or colour your world unless you choose to let them.
