Today’s Inspired Action: comes from SHERO, Louise Hay.
Don’t scare yourself.
Louise goes on to say: “If you love yourself, stop terrorizing yourself with frightful thoughts. All this does is make situations worse. not better. Don’t take a scary situation and make it worse. It’s a terrible way to live. If you have a habit of this, just stop it.”
We do this when we are suffering, in pain or ill, and we immediately plan our funeral. We do this in relationships: someone doesn’t call and we decide we are unlovable and abandoned. We build these things up and these frightening thoughts are negative affirmations within our psyche.
The best thing to do is find an IMAGE of something you REALLY LIKE. A sunset, flowers, and USE THAT as a SUBSTITUTE… like a “switch-to” image from junk to love. Every time you find you’re frightening yourself… FLIP IT! Switch to this image! Think about what is lovely what is true, what is pure. Etc. LOVE yourself enough to stop scaring yourself.
