Do you feel like you don’t have enough misery in your life? All those feelings of acceptance and bliss just getting to be too much for you? Don’t worry … this excellent article has 14 amazing tips on how to screw it all up for yourself. Such winning strategies as, “Sit in a comfortable chair, close your eyes, and, for 15 minutes, meditate on all the things you could lose: your job, your house, your savings, and so forth.” And “Write down 10 situations that make you anxious, depressed, or distracted. Once a week, pick a single anxiety-provoking situation, and use it to work yourself into a panic for at least 15 minutes.” Incredible stuff. Self-sabotage will be yours in no time!
In all seriousness, the article is actually a great checklist – although written with very sardonic tone – of negative thought patterns. All but the most enlightened of us do some of them. Take a look. Which ones do you fall into?
The only one I would actually be cautious of is #9. While we are all absolutely and ultimately responsible for our own minds, behaviours and attitudes, their foundation is absolutely contextualized by our emotional experiences as children, which can in a very real way become trapped inside of us, like a pothole that we just can’t avoid continually stepping in. We also pick up inherited attitudes, belief systems and emotions from our ancestors, handed down to us like a form of energetic DNA.
If you find that you keep repeating the same negative patterns over and over, no matter what kind of mental or spiritual improvements you try to make in yourself, there could be something greater getting in your way. We can help with that, through our subconscious communication techniques that utilize electromagnetic stimulation of the governing meridian to “clear” blockages to your true expression of your self.
