Our thoughts can have a powerful affect on our bodies. Both internal and external dialogue can disrupt our blood pressure, our heart, and even alter our biochemistry. These results were proven in a 1985, medical research conducted at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
The average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those, 80% are negative and 95% are exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before. The National Science Foundation published an article regarding this research in 2005.
So how do I change my thinking?
Dr. William Backus, in his book, Misbelief Therapy, recommends a three step process:
1) Locate your misbeliefs
2) Remove them, and
3) Replace your misbeliefs with God’s thoughts about you.
I love these 3 steps, especially including God in our healing process. So how do you locate your misbeliefs? One of the easiest ways is to start paying attention to your thoughts and writing them down. Consciously make an effort to let them go and write down a new thoughts that you would like to think. Letting them go could be as easy as ripping up the paper that you wrote them down on and burning them or throwing them away.
Begin reciting or reading your new affirmations until they become second nature to you. What we focus on expands into our life. When a negative thought creeps in, recognize it as such, release it and choose for a happier thought to replace it.
