It’s that time again. I am doing another 21-day meditation challenge with Oprah and Deepak. Feel free to follow along on my journey as I Become What I Believe.
Belief Includes Mind, Body and Spirit
Write down the three biggest concerns in your life, whether they are physical, mental, or spiritual. These are the constant reminders that you are in need of healing.
1) That my life will be unhappy because of the relationship I am in
2) That I will not be able to resolve or let go of certain things others have done to me
3) That I won’t be able to give my kids the extra love and support they need right now
As if you were addressing a friend who has shared these concerns with you, write down the advice you would give your friend in order for them to find healing. Be as thorough as you can.
I would tell my friend that they should first, really think of what they want out of the next year of their life. Where do they want to be. Then I would ask them what they could do to get them their. I would ask them what they could do to make their relationship better and to have a serious discussion with their partner. Maybe suggest marriage counseling for a certain amount of time and if things aren’t better reassess the relationship and come to terms that it isn’t going to get better.
I would also suggest therapy to my friend if they were struggling with unresolved issues of their own, such as letting go. I’d tell them that holding on to the past wasn’t healthy and they needed to find a way to move on and live in the present. I would also suggest this to help her find support with anything going on with her kids. That a therapist could make suggestions, be a ear that listens and give good advice on how to support her kids during a difficult time.
Now, write down one specific action you can take today to begin or increase the healing process.
Today I will really think about where I want to be in a year and come up with a life map on how to get there. And, because I am a glutton for punishment, I think I will look into therapist today as well. It can’t hurt, right?
