How Do You Feel?

I choose to feel alive, alert and enthusiastic.
I easily let go of my negative and limiting feelings.
I trust myself to change what is not good for me.
I change my mind, my thoughts and words, to create feeling good.

Feelings Can Change?

Change your thoughts and your feelings change.
Change your beliefs and your feelings will change.
Change your words and your feelings will change.
We can change what we feel quickly and easily with a change of thoughts, words and behavior.

You can choose your experience.
What you think, both conscious and unconscious, will affect what you feel and believe.
What you imagine and envision will affect your thoughts and feelings.
What you believe about you, how you define yourself will alter your feelings and experience.

Feelings are transitory.
Feelings come and go with a change of mind.
Feelings are energy to be used however you please.
You can feel up or down, fearful or peaceful depending on your focus.

You may have been taught to follow your feelings.
Your feelings may run your life.
You can direct your emotional energy with your thought and physiology.
You can learn to change your experience with a willingness to choose what you want.

Experiment with your emotional energy.
Watch and listen to negative stuff and notice where your energy flows.
Focus on what inspires, soothes and encourages you and notice you will be lifted up.
Practice staying neutral with no judgment…..just observing and being interested.

We can master our thoughts and feelings.
We can change and choose how we respond and react.
We can enjoy learning or resist changing our mind.
We can be open to relinquishing anger or let it build.

We are adaptable and our emotions are malleable.
We have the opportunity to think, talk and behave as we prefer.
We can manage our mind, our emotional reactions and responses with practice.
We can  create an enjoyable life with openness and willingness.

Play with your feelings.
Let them be a wakeup call to erase and choose again.
Begin to play with your emotions and use them to support you.
Listen to what you really want below the surface and let your feelings encourage you.

This is your life.
All parts of your life are yours to guide.
Remember that you can do what you will to do.
Be patient and kind as you learn to let go of what is not what you choose.

Loving you in life’s adventures.

The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing By Jerry Jampolsky, MD and ACIM

1.       The essence of our being is love.

2.       Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.

3.       Giving and receiving are the same.

4.       We can let go of the past and of the future.

5.       Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.

6.       We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than by judging.

7.       We can become love finders rather than fault finders.

8.       We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, regardless of what is happening outside.

9.       We are students and teachers to each other.

10.    We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.

11.    Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.

12.    We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Attitudinal Healing affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience.
Attitudinal Healing encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances.
Attitudinal Healing reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind.
