Thinking positive is important first step in mindfulness…

This is the final part of our introductory series to mindfulness.

So you’ve read this far and want to know more about mindfulness, do you? Great then!

hat means that your conscious mind is truly seeking something for you, a state of being in the moment where your mind is in control.

You’ve realized that you are dissatisfied with the way you think and doing things so that change is in order. Congratulations on taking that first step!

There are two ways you can go about creating the change you want in consciousness that will bring you to the state of mindfulness that you are seeking to achieve.

You can do this either through monitoring your thoughts through moment to moment awareness, or through reconditioning your unconscious mind through hypnosis and self-hypnosis.

Of course, if you combine both of these approaches, then you have a sure-fire success in the making!

The idea of monitoring your thoughts may seem like a burden and even difficult.

You see when you think about it, we all monitor our thoughts in some degree as we have to think them. The more we continually respond the same way, the more our thoughts become automatic. In essence, our thought processing is placed on autopilot much of the time and the unconscious mind does most of the work.

The task then becomes one of thinking differently, more actively if you will.

When you find yourself thinking negatively only you have the ability to stop immediately and create an instant mental shift where you place a positive thought in its place.

You see thoughts create feelings and when you focus on a thought long enough, it is more likely to develop into a feeling. So when you are thinking something negative or judgmental, quickly think something positive.

If that doesn’t work, then look at the situation and find something funny about it. You can only think one thought at a time and feel one sensation. Funny, happy thoughts hold more energy and create an instantaneous shift. If you find that the negative feeling has already occurred and is starting to take root, allow it to just be – feel it for what it is, nothing more than a feeling and let it happen.

Feelings are just feelings and they pass. Try to observe the feeling as a spectator watching a cloud pass, then actively shift your mindset or attention onto something positive.

Since most of your negative thinking patterns are ingrained in the unconscious, this is also a good place to tap in and replace the old (negative) with the new (positive) thoughts.

The best way to achieve this is through hypnosis.

Under the guidance of a good hypnotherapist or hypnosis CD’s you can achieve instantaneous change. Post hypnotic suggestions are placed in the unconscious and when the negative judgmental thoughts arise, the cues serve as an alert to change thinking.

Just as you become habituated to think and respond a certain way, post hypnotic suggestions set the unconscious mind to become reconditioned for the ability to be habituated to be a positive thought processor.

When you combine thought monitoring along with hypnosis, the ability to create mindful, intentional positive thinking becomes amazing!
