Have you ever found yourself putting in effort, negative self talk and doubt into a situation you want to be different, but is out of your control? How much time have you wasted with worry thoughts that did not change things anyway when you could have spent that same time on happy activities? If this is something you’ve run into, today’s exercise is made for you. Even if you don’t have the above habits finding more ways to let go can only benefit in freeing up energy and time. For today we will imagine we can hand over some of our biggest challenges to someone else, or some higher power, so we let go of stress and move our focus to fun, positive thoughts. Here is the strategy:
1. Write 10 things you are grateful for.
2. What if you could select 10 challenges/problems in your life and have them solved for you? What would you select? Write down 10 things and title this your “Magical To-Do List.”
3. Chose the 3 MOST IMPORTANT things and, one at a time, imagine having the entire situation resolved for you in the most easy, wonderful way. Imagine as much detail as possible and use all senses (sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste). As you finish imagining each scenario send GRATITUDE for having the magical help!
5. Before bed, hold your magic rock and say thanks for the best thing that happened today.
