“No person, no place, no thing has power over us, for ‘we’ are the only thinkers in our mind. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.” Louise L. Hay
What happens when we give in to bouts of irritation and mental chaos? Why do we get out of balance? How do we bring ourselves back to balance?
Over the last week, I was struggling with multiple computer problems. Even with my husband’s help, it seemed that when one problem was solved, the solution created another problem. We talked repeatedly with our email company and with Microsoft who created the email program I use to manage my email. There were constant error messages. The challenge seemed endless, and I was not happy these problems kept me from writing.
Resistance Always Blocks Solutions
Over the last two months, I have found it difficult to write the blog because of the attention I needed to give to my ankle when I broke it and preparing for our wedding. Even thought the latter was a delight, it still took time, so when the computer problems arose and kept me from writing for over a week, I lost my patience with it.
I resisted admitting that these were serious problems and that, of course, was a mistake because resistance always blocks solutions. Then I let them take control of me and I became a pathetic, complaining, angry person. Despite that, I did attempt to calm myself through positive thinking, meditation, finally hiring a technical person to fix the problems.
Reflecting on all this, I am reminded again that getting upset never helps and it rarely feels good. It’s about returning to my immature self who felt helpless and did not activate the part of me that is a strong problem-solver and takes full responsibility to find the solution.
Positive Thinking Is Most Likely To Create Positive Results
Louise Hay is so right. It is all about the way we chose to think. The reason I have been so drawn to Science of Mind principles and the Law of Attraction is that they empower me to create in my life whatever I want. How I think determines my experience. When there is a crisis, like this week, I want to know I have the capability to solve it or to get the help I need to solve it.
At times, we just need to take a leap of faith. We need to expect the problem to get solved, maintain a positive attitude toward it, and do whatever we can to fix it. We can’t know ahead that the choice we make will work, but we have to have the courage to try. If it doesn’t work, we simply need to try again, further analyzing the situation and experimenting.
The Answers Are Within Our Quiet Core
Allowing ourselves to be angry, to feel like a failure, or allow the problem to take over our lives has no benefit. In that still, quiet place within, we have available to us information from our experiences in this life and information from our current and past spiritual life. Or as in my case, we look around us and find someone who is more knowledgeable to solve the problem.
Without Fear, Our Minds Can Solve the Problems
Feeling inadequate doesn’t help. We all have different talents, and mine is definitely not computers; yet to some people who have never written a blog I seem accomplished. It’s all in the mind, and operating from a peaceful place without fear is the place where we are most likely to find success. What is going on in our minds has a ripple effect. That energy can limit us or expand us. We can choose. As Louise Hay reminds us, “We are the only thinkers in our mind.”
