This morning I found myself being concerned for those in my life who appear to be struggling with illness, grief, resentment and hurt. I was worrying and wondering and concerned for them.

The root meaning of "worry" is to strangle.
To worry is to contract and squeeze out potential creative and constructive thinking.
To worry is a primary way many people have learned to show their love.
To worry is often seen as being "all we can do to show we care."
Worry is a bi-product of fear.
Fear generates more fear.
Worrying is and easy habit of mind to learn and practice.

Spiritual or metaphysical truths:
What we focus on, increases and expands.
What we perceive in others, we strengthen in ourselves.

With the habit of worrying:
We can become consumed with worry.
We can increase the individual's worry and concern for themselves.
We can become a worrisome and fearful person.
We can teach others there is something real to fear and worry about.

When I catch myself "worrying", I ask "What can I do?"
I know it does no good to be concerned.
So I ask if there is some good I can do which will be helpful and ease the dis-ease and distress.
I do what I am called to do immediately, so I send no more scared, negative and toxic thoughts.
I forgive myself for worrying.
I release my pictures of the problem, the pain, the disaster.
I envision the highest outcome.
I appreciate all those who are supporting, serving and helping.
I let go and give it all to God.
I imagine those involved feeling loved and peace.
And I offer my blessing.
I bless the person, the situation, myself and all those involved.
I trust everyone is learning and growing, healing and helping to the best of their ability.
I reassure myself that all is well.

Blessing us all now with the highest and best I know,
Betty Lue
