“I start and end every day thinking about my ex; I am doing everything to try to “move on,” but I feel there is a limit to how much I will be able to heal the wound.”
She repeats her story of hurt, tragedy and being wronged every morning and every night. Re-hashing all the painful details, charged with emotion. This just recreates a prison in the mind- a circle that she walks around and around in. Your thoughts become your words which becomes your life. STOP TELLING THIS OLD BROKEN STORY ! It is cementing it in your memory when you want it out of your mind. This is not who you are today, it is what happened to you in the past. By not telling that old story, you are not pretending that is did not happen and that how you were treated wasn’t horrible, but it serves no purpose now other can keeping you trapped. Today is a new day. TELL A NEW STORY!
The hypnotist’s words were exactly that! I changed “will to I am” because it is present tense and more powerful, but same idea.
1. I am letting go of my sorrow and pain.
2. I am moving forward and live each day with joy and happiness.
3. I am releasing all negative thoughts about my husband.
Every time you catch yourself repeating the OLD story, immediately switch over and repeat these three statements or other “I am” statements and add 2 or 3 of your own. Write them down and keep them in your purse until you can rattle them off my memory.( I would drop #3, because your x is not in your life and doesn’t need to be in your daily mind.)
I like these positive “self talk” statements:
Everyday, in every way, I am getting stronger and stronger.
I am happy, healthy and whole.
I am rich, well and happy.
I see love and beauty everywhere I look.
I love my new life where I get to make all the choices.I am attracted to happy fun people and make friends easily.
I am beautiful and have lots of offer.
I am completely free from the past and joyfully look forward.
I am open and eager to see what comes next.
Tell this story every morning and every night and see how much better you will feel! And when you have an impulse to do something, DO IT! Watch for new opportunities because they will pop up out of no where. Author and speaker , Louise Hay has an amazing DVD and book, called “You Can Heal Your Life” thats talks more about this. She is in 80s now and going strong and says life just keeps getting better and better and this decade is her best….and because she believes it, it is!!
