Do you find yourself worrying about the past, present, or future? Do your concerns keep you up at night and even affect your health? Would you like to learn ways to prevent and “cure” this common stressful feeling?
Like most people, I also used to worry about many things. Fortunately, I learned how to use my own HART (Holistic And Rapid Transformation) processes, to help me sleep better, maintain my health, and experience more happiness and joy.
Worry is a form of fear that causes us a great deal of stress, and can cause ulcers and many other physical problems. When we are in fear, our body constricts and the organs and glands are not able to receive the much needed oxygen and nutrients. On the contrary, when we are relaxed our body can function normally and maintain health and well-being.
It is normal and human to get struck in the web of worrying. However, there are ways to free yourself and feel good again. To begin with, it is important to realize that your thoughts and images are like powerful magnets. Therefore, it is vital to let go of the negative “pictures” and/or thoughts consuming you.
Unfortunately, you can easily attract whatever you are worried about. Of course the opposite is also true. Positive images and thoughts draw to you and others a more favorable outcome.
For example, when my daughters went out to socialize with their friends, I found myself worrying about their safety. I knew that I had taught them how to take care of themselves, listen to their intuition, always have a designated driver, and call me if they needed help. However, as a normal mother, I was still worrying about them. It is amazing how our imagination can get the best of us.
Concerned that the negative image and thought could attract the very things I was anxious about, I quickly imagined that I had a laser beam and was burning away the negative scene of them being physically hurt or having a car accident. I took two deep breaths to help me let go of that fear. I said an affirmation, a positive thought, “The girls are safe.” Then I imagined us all having breakfast the next morning, and my daughters were sharing what a fun time they had. I was then relaxed enough to fall asleep. Worrying was no longer keeping me awake.
You can use this HART technique for any situation. For example, if you are concerned about not getting a job, then burn that worry away and imagine that you are working in the perfect environment. When you are worried about being able to pay your bills, or the house not selling, do the same process.
Basically, you are releasing the negative images and thoughts and changing them to positive ones. This is amazingly powerful because your positive thoughts and images can help you create a happy, healthy, and successful life. However, you need to release the negative first. The analogy is that you have to clean out your drawer to make room for the new.
Why do we frequently go directly to the negative side of things? Often, we learned that pattern of behavior from our parents who learned it from their parents and so on. Worrying does not serve you or anyone else, and it can be an unconscious habit.
It is helpful to realize that you can release that way of functioning and focus on a more positive approach. I suggest that you set your intent to pay attention to what you are saying, thinking, and imagining. As soon as you are aware of your negativity, use the HART process to switch to being positive. You will probably find yourself healthier and happier. You may even be able to say, “I don’t worry any more. I have trust that I have the power to attract good in my life.”
