Thoughts are just temporary, but repetitive thoughts can illuminate deeper beliefs about ourselves and the world we live in. It’s a tough time for over-thinking, but by illuminating our blindspots and discovering our limiting beliefs, we can start to choose where to redirect our focus.
Remember your values, and ask what you can do to embody them. If you want love, ask yourself what generates the feeling of love within. If you want to feel motivated, consider what inspires you. Incorporate your findings now. When we practice feeling the way we want to feel, our perspective broadens to the limitless nature of the universe and new paths reveal themselves towards those values.
Here is an offering of loving-kindness phrases to practice. Direct them to yourself first and then to others:
May you be happy.
May you be healthy.
May you be at ease.
May you stay open to the love that surrounds you.
