What Do Bad Feelings Mean for a Deliberate Creator?

Feelings  Do you have days when you’re feeling down or bad?  Sometimes for seemingly no real reason at all?

I do.

Getting dressed yesterday, my brain was telling me:

  • “You’re a fraud, Greg”
  • “No one will buy your books!”
  • “Who do you think you are?  You’re a nobody”

My (Sometimes) Grumpy Brain Occasionally Wishes It Still Had Control Over My State of Being

Those were my feelings yesterday morning.  Those also happen to be some of the beliefs I used to have – so I’m well acquainted with those feelings.  They used to be some of my habitual patterns of thought.  I told myself those stories repeatedly for years until they had become some of my “truths”.

Until I learned how and why to use new paradigms from quantum physics to build new beliefs.

And I’ve been using those new paradigms, telling myself better-feeling stories, for over five years now.  Technically, what I’ve been doing is telling myself the best-feeling, believable stories possible for over five years.  Just what I teach you to do in my Why Quantum Physicists… series of books.

While I’m Not Supposed to Be “In Control” of My Feelings (They Simply Are What They Are), I Am In Control of My Beliefs

Hence, my beliefs have changed.  Converse to my feelings yesterday, which I still feel from time to time, I now believe:

  • “I am immensely worthwhile”
  • “People love my books.  Because they are written with an infusion of love for you and an extreme desire to uplift and enhance your life”
  • “I am an amazing and valuable person – just as I believe you to be”

So, today, when I have those bad feelings I described earlier, I simply acknowledge and validate them.  They are temporary; they are not my state of being and do not reflect my new, true beliefs about myself.  They also no longer frighten me because I know they are not my beliefs unless I choose to make them so by repeating and believing them.

Bad Feelings No Longer Form Links In An Unbreakable and Binding Chain

I know that feelings aren’t meant to be stuffed or denied.  They are meant to be felt.  And depersonalized.  And doing that takes away their power; they are no longer links in an unbreakable chain.  My feelings are simply my feelings – I am in charge of what my beliefs are. And I take charge of my beliefs via the best-feeling, believable stories I tell myself each day. (Click those links to Tweet them)

So yesterday, although they weren’t wonderful, I simply felt those feelings and acknowledged them.  And I also felt a warm glow of confidence that my beliefs are still, and always, my choiceI choose to have beliefs today which align me with my desires. (Click that link to Tweet it) And I choose to be in charge of those beliefs through the stories I tell myself each day.

How about you?

How to Enjoy Mopping the Kitchen Floor and Change Your Day in the Process

  When was the last time you ate at a sumptuous buffet?  With the choice to fill your plate with whatever foods you want, did you head for the food that you don’t like and ladle it onto your plate?

Did the stewed okra catch your eye?  Fill your plate with lima beans?  Take two huge servings of brussel sprouts?

Of course not.  While you probably didn’t load your plate with nothing but bacon, pastries, and banana pudding, I’ll bet you focused on foods you enjoy.

Isn’t It Wonderful to Skip the Brussel Sprouts?

Isn’t that the appeal of a buffet, after all?  You have the freedom to choose – and skip over what you don’t enjoy in favor of what you like and want.

Aren’t we lucky then, that each day we’re alive is a buffet?  With each moment, we are offered the same freedom to choose.  To choose to tell ourselves stories about (assign meaning to) our life that feel bad and keep us separated from the experiences we desire.  Or to tell stories that feel good and align us with the experiences we want.

No, you don’t necessarily have choice over all your actual experiences; picking and choosing each experience you have is not what makes life a buffet, because most of us don’t have that much influence no matter how long we’ve practiced creating our own reality.  What makes life a buffet is the choice you have regarding the story you tell about (the meaning you assign to) each life experience.

You Don’t Have to Pretend to Like Anything to Take Advantage of Life’s Buffet

Does this mean that you should pretend to like things you don’t?  Perhaps you aren’t thrilled to be mopping the kitchen floor or you’re not excited to be staying late at the office to finish some paperwork – should you be acting like you’re loading your plate with tasty roast beef from the buffet line?

No.

But alternatively, do you have to say, “Mopping the floor sucks and I hate this!” or “I am so mad I’m here at the office late and this has ruined my evening!”?  Who made those rules?  And why do you often act as if you have to follow them?

Life is a buffet because you get to chose the stories you tell.  Why not say, “Although I’m not necessarily overjoyed to be mopping this floor, I am glad that my family and I will get to enjoy a clean kitchen” or “Maybe I’d rather be doing something other than this paperwork right now, but I am grateful I have this job and I feel good about doing it well.”

Given the abundant choices surrounding you today, try these kinds of stories and see what an amazing difference they make.  And stay tuned to this blog for more about how to tell new stories and create a more desirable reality…
