This morning it happened again, all is good. I get up, I have the possibility and resources to make breakfast for my family, I take a lovely clean warm private shower, I choose from a bunch of cloths what to wear, I have a friendly tuck tuck driver waiting for us to drive the kids and me to the school, he drives me back home, outside I enjoy a cool temperature (what is good and pretty exceptional, living in Thailand). I come home make tea and get myself to work. All this is great and I ‘should’ have a feeling of joy/happiness/ or a kind of enjoyable present emotion. Even that I can’t say I’m totally negative (that part of me I left behind some time ago, joehoeee!!!) but at the same time there was a nagging negative feeling stuck to me, like a grey cloud following me the entire time.
It’s done, I won’t ignore it anymore or fight it each time again. Let’s do Positive! I read a lot about rewiring the brain, the science behind it and the practice, by personal experience I know it is possible (I’m an ex-negaholic). It’s time to dig in deeper.
As from 29/11/2017 I will extend my personal experience regarding positive emotions and how I’m responsible for my own mind and thinking, by putting myself in a love and kindness meditative state every day.
Science confirms these days that the positive emotions generated by this practice will:
– Reduce negative traits (that is my major motivator)
– Recover better/quicker from stressors (hmmm will be useful too)
– Cardio vascular system recover faster (no indicator something wrong there but definitely positive)
– Self generate positive emotions (yes!!!)
– Better general physical health (good take away)
I invite you to join me in the test, I will post a guided love and kindness meditation every day. No unicorns or rainbows, just sitting around 15-20 minutes each day, you choose when, and let’s show our mind who’s in charge.
Let’s take it step by step, as from 29/11/2017
When we practice loving kindness and compassion
we are the first ones to profit
