“I rule my mind, which I alone must rule.” ~A Course in Miracles, Lesson 236

We often think we are not in control of our thoughts and feelings. I get it. Sometimes it feels as if we’ve been taken over by something and are completely powerless to the thoughts and feelings that overcome us. Whilst it SEEMS like this is the case, it isn’t. There is no alien in your mind. There’s a PART of your mind that’s learned that to protect you, it must make you feel certain things in order to keep you safe. That part of you needs to gently learn that there is a better, more loving way. When we educate that part of the brain and give it enough evidence that there’s a better way, without frightening it away, we can change our thoughts and feelings. I know this sounds simplistic, but it really is that simple. Not necessarily easy, but that simple. Trust me, it’s what I do with my clients every day 🙂
