In a world inundated with news of wars, setbacks, and an endless stream of doom and gloom, it's easy to become entrapped in a cycle of negativity that permeates our thoughts and emotions. However, the age-old adage, "What we think, believe, and emote creates our reality," invites us to question whether the external chaos truly defines our personal experience of reality. So, I wanted to talk about the concept that our perceptions shape the world we live in and how a conscious shift in mindset can transform how we live our lives.
Beyond the Illusion:
The bombardment of information from mainstream and alternate news sources often paints a picture of a world steeped in duality — a constant struggle between good and evil, positive and negative. While acknowledging the existence of hardships and challenges faced by others globally, the question arises: does this constitute your immediate reality? The answer may lie in recognizing that our perception of reality is a subjective construct, influenced by our thoughts and beliefs.
The Pollyanna Paradox:
Some may dismiss the idea of consciously shaping one's reality as mere Pollyanna optimism, a refusal to acknowledge the harsh truths that surround us. However, the essence of this perspective lies in understanding the power of our vibrations — the energetic frequencies emitted by our thoughts and emotions. By choosing to focus on positivity and gratitude in our immediate surroundings, we may elevate our vibrations above the discordant frequencies of negativity, creating a different, more harmonious reality.
The Duality Trap:
Continuous immersion in news cycles, filled with tales of strife and discord, can contribute to the manifestation of a reality characterized by duality. The constant influx of information can shape our beliefs and emotions, leading to a state of perpetual tension and anxiety. It becomes imperative to question whether such a reality is a result of external circumstances or a product of our own mental and emotional engagement with the world. Loosening our grip on the duality trap may be just what we need to do.
To manifest at warp speed, as some believe, requires a deliberate shift in focus. Turning off the news and stepping away from the doom and gloom narratives might seem like a radical step, but it's a crucial one in reclaiming the power to shape our own reality. By disengaging from the fear-inducing information, we create space for a more positive, fulfilling existence as we focus on the present moment in our lives.
Life as a Continuous Transformation:
The assertion that "we do not die, we only transform into another reality" invites contemplation on the nature of life and death. Fear of death, it seems, is the only catalyst for the experience of it. Embracing the idea that life is a continuous cycle of transformation encourages us to live in the present, unburdened by the anxieties of an uncertain future.
Looking Beyond the Illusion While Serving Others Amidst Duality
While the concept of shaping our own reality emphasizes personal empowerment, it's crucial to acknowledge the interconnected nature of our existence. As we rise above the illusion of duality, a natural inclination arises to be of service to those still mired in the throes of hardship and negativity. Here are some ways in which we can extend a helping hand to those experiencing the challenges of a dualistic reality if they will allow:
Empathy and Compassion:
Cultivating empathy and compassion is the first step to being of service. By understanding the struggles of others without judgment, we create a space for genuine connection. This emotional resonance lays the foundation for meaningful support.
Often, those trapped in the cycle of duality may yearn for someone to hear their story. Being an active listener, without interjecting judgments or solutions, provides a valuable opportunity for them to express themselves and feel acknowledged.
While encouraging a shift in perspective, it's essential to do so with sensitivity and respect. Share personal experiences or stories of hope and resilience that may inspire by providing a different outlook on challenging situations.
Acts of kindness and practical assistance can go a long way in alleviating the burdens of those facing hardships. Whether it's offering a helping hand with daily tasks, providing resources, or volunteering time, these actions contribute to creating a more supportive and compassionate community.
Encouraging Mindfulness Practices:
Introducing mindfulness practices to individuals entrenched in duality can be transformative. Techniques such as meditation and mindfulness help cultivate inner peace and mental spaciousness, enabling them to navigate challenges with a clearer mindset.
Educating on Empowerment:
Empowering others with knowledge about the power of thoughts and emotions can be a powerful tool for personal transformation. Share insights on how one's mindset can shape their reality and provide resources for self-improvement and personal development.
Creating Support Networks:
Establishing or contributing to support networks within communities can foster a sense of belonging and shared responsibility. Collective efforts can amplify the impact of individual acts of service, creating a more robust foundation for positive change.
Promoting Acts of Kindness:
Encourage a ripple effect of kindness by fostering a culture of giving. Simple acts of kindness, whether big or small, can create a positive momentum that extends far beyond individual interactions, contributing to a more harmonious collective experience.
By combining personal empowerment with a commitment to serving others, we create a synergistic approach to navigating the complexities of a dualistic reality. As we lift ourselves above the illusion while creating our own reality, extending a helping hand to those in need becomes not only an act of service but also a testament to the transformative power of collective compassion and interconnectedness.
In a world inundated with information, the power to shape our reality lies within the realm of our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. While global challenges and conflicts may persist, the invitation is to rise above the chaos, disconnect from the narratives of doom and gloom, and consciously manifest a reality that aligns with our highest aspirations. By understanding the transformative nature of life and embracing the concept that we are the architects of our own existence, we can navigate the complexities of the world with a sense of purpose, positivity, and resilience.

The human mind has an incredible ability to reminisce about the past, replaying old memories and dwelling on past events. While reflection on the past can be valuable for personal growth and learning, excessive rumination about what has already transpired often holds us back from moving forward in our lives. Ruminating about the past can hinder our progress and a mindfulness practice can help us reclaim our point of power in the present moment.
The Paralysis of Past Ruminations
Ruminating about the past can feel like an endless loop that keeps us trapped in a cycle of regret, guilt, anger, and nostalgia. It prevents us from fully engaging with the present moment and it hinders our ability to make conscious choices about our future. Here are some common ways in which dwelling on the past can hold us back:
Missed Opportunities: When we are preoccupied with the past, we may overlook the opportunities and possibilities that are unfolding in the present. Our minds become fixated on what could have been, causing us to miss out on what can be.
Emotional Distress: Replaying past mistakes or traumatic events can trigger negative emotions, such as regret, anger, or sadness, which can have a detrimental impact on our mental and emotional well-being eventually creating dis-ease in our bodies.
Stagnation: Constantly revisiting the past can keep us stuck in old patterns of behavior, preventing personal growth and development.
Ineffective Decision-Making: Ruminating about past decisions can cloud our judgment and make it difficult to make clear and effective choices for the future.
Mindfulness: The Key to Reclaiming the Present
Mindfulness is the practice of bringing one's attention to the present moment with non-judgmental awareness. It empowers us to break free from the shackles of the past and connect with our point of power in the present. Here's how mindfulness helps us let go of past ruminations:
Increased Awareness: Mindfulness encourages us to become acutely aware of our thoughts, feelings, and sensations as they arise within us. This awareness allows us to recognize when we are getting caught in past ruminations and gently guide our focus back to the present.
Emotional Regulation: Through mindfulness, we learn to observe our emotions without reacting impulsively. This enables us to navigate difficult feelings related to the past with greater equanimity and control.
Improved Decision-Making: By staying grounded in the present moment, we can make more rational and conscious choices, unburdened by the weight of past regrets or anxieties.
Enhanced Self-Understanding: Mindfulness provides insight into how our minds work. It allows us to identify thought patterns and habits that keep us trapped in the past, enabling us to consciously choose more constructive thought processes.
Coaching for Mindfulness Integration
Coaching plays a vital role in helping us develop and sustain mindfulness practice in every aspect of our daily lives. Here are some coaching techniques to guide you in using mindfulness in various aspects of your mind:
Setting Clear Intentions: Coaches, such as myself, can work with you to clarify your intentions for practicing mindfulness. Whether it's reducing stress, improving decision-making, or letting go of the past, having a clear goal can provide motivation and direction.
Creating Mindful Habits: I can help you integrate mindfulness into your daily routines, whether through meditation, mindful breathing exercises, or incorporating mindful moments into everyday tasks.
Addressing Resistance: It's common to encounter resistance when trying to establish a mindfulness practice. I can assist you in identifying and addressing the barriers that may arise, helping you stay committed to your practice.
Self-Compassion: Mindfulness is also about self-compassion. I can guide you in treating yourself with kindness and forgiveness, particularly when dealing with past regrets and mistakes.
Ruminating about the past can be a significant barrier to personal growth and happiness. However, through the practice of mindfulness and the guidance of a skilled coach and accountability partner, you can learn to let go of past ruminations, reclaim your power in the present moment, and make more conscious choices about your future.
Mindfulness empowers us to live more fully in the here and now, unlocking the potential for a brighter and more fulfilling future. Feel free to contact me, if this is something that resonates with you.

I often recommend, to my clients, a Mindfulness Meditation practice to strengthen their awareness of themselves, especially when they are concerned they cannot go under QHHT hypnosis easily. And, here's why:
The promises of a mindfulness meditation practice are well documented. From less stress, sleeping better and a lower incidence of a whole range of mental health conditions, mindfulness has been presented as a silver bullet that can make a difference to many of the problems in our modern lives.
But mindfulness is so much more than this. It’s so much more than a prescription, to be taken once or twice a day, to cure our ills. A mindfulness practice is a way of life that can utterly transform us, changing the way we see our minds, ourselves and the world around us.
And that’s where the real benefit comes in.
Mindfulness changes how you relate to the mind
Developing a mindfulness meditation practice can fundamentally change how you view the goings on inside your own mind.
In the first instance, mindfulness meditation makes you more aware of what is going on in your mind. It allows you to get a clear picture of how busy the mind really is. It helps you to see clearly the kinds of thoughts you are carrying with you.
It also allows you to get a clearer picture on your emotional life. How does the mind respond when something doesn’t go your way and a powerful emotion takes over? In what ways does the mind fuel these emotions? Regular mindfulness meditation brings clarity. It helps us to see the mind as it really is.
It also helps us to realise that our thoughts and emotions are here one moment and gone the next. As we pay attention to the mind, we realise that nothing is permanent. Everything changes. And so we can begin to hold less tightly to our thoughts and feelings in the moment.
It is only in seeing the mind as it really is that we can we begin to make positive changes to our inner world.
Mindfulness changes how you relate to yourself
All of this new information about how the mind works, and about your thoughts and emotional life, gives us a much deeper understanding of ourselves. It allows us to see more clearly what is going on in the mind and, with regular practice, it allows us to go deeper than the busyness of our thoughts, into a place of intuition and calm.
Many practitioners describe this experience of the mind using the analogy of the blue sky. Underneath the clouds, even on a cloudy day, the blue sky is always there. It's a bit like that with our thoughts. Some days there are less of them, and we can see the blue sky clearly. On other days the whole sky is dominated by clouds and we hardly even know that the blue sky is there at all.
A regular mindfulness meditation practice helps us to find acceptance. Acceptance that beneath our thoughts truly is a place of peace, a place of calm, and when we access this place we can live more intuitively and authentically. This doesn’t mean we chase the thoughts away. Instead we just wait for them pass, knowing that the blue sky is always there, right beneath the clouds.
For many people, this place within us, that exists beyond thought, is a deeply spiritual place. It is a place where we can access our truest self, our deepest wisdom about life and find guidance for the things in life that matter most. For some, this practice has allowed them to delve deeply into the imagination, accessing the multidimensional lives we live on other timelines.
Practicing mindfulness meditation, and carrying what you have learned in meditation out into your everyday life, allows you to live in a way that is more in tune with this deeper awareness, this true self. And this can be spiritually liberating for many.
Mindfulness changes how you relate to the world
A regular mindfulness practice also transforms the way in which we relate to the world. By drawing us into living life on a deeper and more intuitive level, we become less reactive.
Many mindfulness meditation practices begin with setting an intention for the practice and identifying who this practice will benefit beyond yourself. There are many ways in which those around us will benefit from our mindfulness practice. Those closest to us will benefit from the greater sense of calm that we experience as a result of regular mindfulness practice, but they also benefit from our greater ability to be present in the moment.
We live in a highly distracted age. There is always somewhere else to be or something else to do. Technology allows us to connect with anyone at any time. Our full attention, then, is one of the most precious things that we can give to anyone. Mindfulness practices helps us to strengthen the muscle of presence. It allows us to really be where we are and our relationships are often all the stronger for it.
Mindfulness practice can transform our relationship with the natural world. By being more present we begin to notice our surroundings so much more. And in noticing, we are much more likely to access our authenticity and experience feelings of genuine gratitude. Our gratitude for what we have, and the beauty of the world around us, can be a powerful driving force to protect our world and care for it.
When we regularly practice mindfulness, and become more in tune with that which matters most to us, we are more able to prioritize what really matters. We are able to work in the world for meaningful change, whether that is in the form of caring for others or caring for our beautiful planet.
We could easily enter into a mindfulness practice simply to gain the benefits that are so often talked about of an improvement to our wellbeing and mental health. And these are great goals to have.
But mindfulness practice offers us so much more. It offers us a way to connect deeply with ourselves and with the world. It gives us a simple way to begin to understand the inner workings of our mind and to access our intuition and wisdom.
From this place we can make intentional decisions about what matters most to us and how we spend our time and energy. We can live life in a wholly different way.
That is the true benefit of mindfulness.

Over the last several decades, the age of technology has crept into our lives. With each decade, new advancements and discoveries have facilitated, accelerated, and, in many ways, encumbered our lives. Most people cannot say precisely when or how, but the media, technology, and artificial intelligence have become essential to daily functioning for many members of society. With that, issues with depression, anxiety, apathy, and spiritual, emotional, and mental imbalances have increased, lowering our vibrational frequency.
Yet, there is hope with the 3rd to 5th-dimensional ascension when we have the opportunity to lift our vibrations to resonate with the love, light, and harmony of "New Earth," or the 5D. However, the disconnection AI and the media fosters impairs our ability to achieve actual ascension. This disconnect leads many to numb the pain of the 3rd dimension, get lost in a state of learned helplessness, and resort to counterfeit forms of ascension that only temporarily elevate.
The time is now to break free from the disinformation, chaos, and despair the current fear-mongering, upheaval, and shallow experiences generate. We must empower ourselves, learn to honor our personal truths, follow our intuition, and realize and align with the harmonious vibration of the Divine that dwells within us, but how?
First, we must practice self-awareness. Without judging or projecting an emotional response, start asking yourself why. Why do you get up and turn the news on before you've nourished yourself? Why do you spend your free time exposing yourself to social media and the fear-provoking posts? Why do you lose yourself in your phone or tv to avoid sitting quietly with your thoughts?
By becoming aware of your motivations, what DRIVES you, you can gradually begin to change your behavior. This is how you will find the willpower to turn off the news and disconnect from social media. Allowing more time for you to connect with yourself as a spiritual being through meditation, journaling, or simply enjoying being one with nature.
We ARE nature unless we succumb to the noise of AI.
This is how you reencounter yourself as a being of energy and light, a spiritual being on a temporary human journey. This is not to say your body is inconsequential! Your physical vessel holds cellular memories of this life and the last. Your body is a temple to manifest the present and prepare for a more loving, aligned, divine future.
It is through honoring your physical body that you realign with the heartbeat of nature. There is a vitality and strength that comes from realizing that you are one with the rambling rivers, centuries-old trees, and the ever-changing seasons. By embracing this unity, you will reawaken to the divine universal interworking and the oneness and completion it represents.
Ultimately, we are meant to ascend the physical, but first, we must take a journey that celebrates our temporal vessels' preciousness and sanctity. For it is within that you will learn the divine resonance of empowerment, strength, self-assuredness, self-trust, and peace.
This is the meaning of true freedom, when you are liberated enough to think for yourself, act in accordance with your personal beliefs and highest values and pursue the path of ascension. As they say, freedom is not just doing what we want. It is doing what is right. Liberate yourself!

What an organ the brain is! All its wrinkles and folds, nuances and enigmas, powers and abilities, working in perfect alignment and synergy…until it doesn't! The brain can be separated into different lobes, functions, and systems. The primary distinction is that of the right and left brain. Sometimes referred to as brains, these two hemispheres are meant to work together, making up for what the other lacks. The left brain is responsible for logic, analytical thought, scientific and mathematical reasoning, and processing what we have been taught to believe is factual evidence.
The right brain processes holistic perceptions, creativity, imagination, art, music, and insightful reasoning. When the two hemispheres are balanced, together they give us a grounded perspective in which we can function in our day to day lives yet aspire, envision, and manifest a more fulfilling, high vibrational future.
Unfortunately, some people are out of balance, listening solely to their left brain. This can be referred to as literalism. Defined as "adherence to a meaning in an exact sense, or an exact representation or portrayal without idealization or inference." In simple terms, understanding and judging everything at "evidence or face value,"…but is it really evidential face value?
From an early age, based on our culture, society, and family values, we are all taught what to attend to, who to trust, how to perceive information, what is "fundamentally" true, and what is "fundamentally false." This is called social conditioning. Social conditioning is how we have been taught to function and think, somewhat like a default state for an electronic device.
When we rely solely on the left brain, or literalist perceptions, we limit ourselves, our consciousness, and our opportunities. We give our power away to social, religious, political constructs and people, we've idealized and over identified with, to determine what we see and how we see it. In this way, literalism is taking everything at face value or basing our perceptions on factual evidence. Instead, it conforms to what we have been socialized to believe is accurate, proven, and apparent.
Spoiler Alert: Knowledge, grounded in literalism, always comes to a stop. There's nowhere else to go to expand on ideas to grow! Repressing our natural tendency to question, to think beyond what appears to be physically present, and to grow as the spiritual beings that we are, stifles our true expression.
In my opinion, this has been the crux of a trickle down effect and why our generation suffers from systemic depression and that people, collectively, are suffering the Dark Night of the Soul.
All that we perceive and experience is transient, except for the experiences that change our soul. The soul or spirit is the entity that exists and bridges us from one life to the next. It never dies. We explore the universal consciousness through our soul, commune with the higher consciousness, and reach the higher dimensions. Locked within the soul is a template of our life path, all that came before and will come after. Alignment with this map or template is how we self-actualize, awaken, and achieve enlightenment through connection to the universe and Spiritual consciousness.
When we rely too heavily on the left brain's literalism, we tie ourselves too tightly to the physical realm's perceptions, experiences, and fleeting events. We lose touch with our higher selves, the universal unconscious, and the realm of the soul. Quickly we can become locked into the functioning of the day to day, observing the rules and regulations we have been conditioned to. A divide grows between who we are and who we are meant to be. We are not meant to follow, but to do the soul's work, honoring the template we come to this world with and the higher purpose we are destined to achieve.
As the division between who we are portraying and who we are meant to be, grows, life becomes challenging. We can lose our way, lose our sense of purpose, and life can lose all meaning. When we lose our "why," by habitually conforming to what we think we KNOW, we also lose our how and when.
There has never been a time where it is crucial for individuals to begin their self-actualizing, integrative process by whatever means is necessary than now.
Trusting the left brain too much can lead to not trusting ourselves at all! Our intuition and inner knowing repeatedly takes a backseat to what we have been conditioned to believe is right, even if it goes against what we want or what we feel. Like any other relationship, when we lose our own trust, it is difficult to regain it.
This state of feeling conflicted towards the answers "out there" and having the answers within withheld can render us powerless. This powerlessness can lead to depression, anxiety, and general apathy towards the very life we are living. If you have experienced this or are experiencing it, you understand how difficult a cycle it can be to break. Yet, nothing can change within your spirit or in your outer world until you do the spiritual work it takes to amplify and hear your inner truth again.
By bypassing social conditioning and the left brain's reasoning, the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique can access the part of yourself that can hear and feel your inner knowing again. QHHT can help you reconnect with answers that you have lost along the way regarding your everyday life and your spiritual calling. QHHT accesses the higher self and the collective unconscious through your spirit, your everlasting nature, and eternal awareness, rendering the confines of social conditioning and literalism powerless. In turn, returning your mental, spiritual and emotional balance and restoring your power!
I have spoken to many of you who are afraid of the QHHT process, those of you who know, on a deeper level, that you've clung to your literalism for far too long and believe you would not be successful at this practice. My answer to this is my Mindfulness Meditation and Awareness Series of coaching sessions that can help prepare you for a QHHT session. Practicing mindfulness to strengthen awareness naturally opens up the mind to balance and trust in your inner knowing rather than just accepting evidential proof, "out there" that may or may not be true.
When you can once again perceive the bigger picture, you will start to realize how "small" your physical existence truly is. Through connection to your higher self and your countless lifetimes, you can once again appreciate how infinite your options and opportunities are. You can begin to realize yourself and your exponential gifts and visualize unlimited new ways of living, and it takes trusting yourself to do so.

In our present-day society, we are modern people. Lately, due to governmental mandates, many of us have had time to pause and reflect, whether we wanted to or not. We realize we have become very used to being stimulated regularly. Our minds are addicted to all kinds of buzz and frenzy.
Technology has only exacerbated this buzz as our minds hunger for more. When faced with the notion to be in the present moment, this may make many recoil in panic. In fact we expend a great deal of our money, our energy and our time doing our best to avoid boredom because, to some, this state of being commensurates death.
Seriously! Many of us can remember using phrases like "bored to death" and "bored stiff."
Consider the vast expanse of entertainment, amusements and diversions that we create and indulge in just to keep from feeling bored. And yet, the complaint of boredom still exists.
I once read a story where, ages ago, there was this Zen trainee who complained to his master that he didn't enjoy meditation because he found the practice of focusing on his breath to be boring. "Oh you don't find breathing interesting, huh?" Said the Zen master. "Well, come with me." The trainee followed the master outside stopping at a stream. At the edge of the water, the master told his trainee to gaze at his reflection in the water. As soon as the student bent over to look at his reflection, the Zen master thrust his head deep into the water and forcibly held it there as the poor student struggled not to drown. "Sooo," said the Zen master, "do you still find breathing boring?"
Most of us believe that our boredom is because of our outward circumstances. We think the situation we find ourselves in is simply not interesting. Those who practice presence, on the other hand, regard boredom as a product of inattention. We get bored, in other words, when we withdraw our full awareness to whatever we are experiencing at the moment.
Boredom is not caused by what we perceive as not happening, it is caused by our own mind. The cure for boredom is paying complete attention with focused awareness. Rather than paying attention, though, most of us are inclined to seek out more mental and physical stimulation to keep our minds occupied with trivial matters that just take up useless space in our heads.
The meditative practice of presence encourages us to let go of the craving for stimulation and simply be attentive to what is, in the present moment.
To digress a moment, I recall a time when I was new at practicing presence. My, then, 8 year old daughter came to me complaining, "I'm bored!" Instead of jumping into my usual response to engage her in something entertaining, I said to her, "Many brilliant ideas and works of art were created out of boredom." Then, I left it at that. Reluctantly, she decided to pull out her art supplies and, voila!, she created a masterpiece. A work of art I will treasure for the rest of my life.
When I asked her what she learned about herself when she was bored, her 8 year old self thoughtfully replied, "That I don't have to be bored when I'm bored." Indeed.
When we discipline our minds, we can take something that we perceive to be boring and make it into something that's profoundly interesting. Just as a submerged head can become fascinated with the breath, boredom, itself, can become interesting if we simply observe it without judgment.
When we can let go of our fear of being bored and direct our full attention to our breath, one might be amazed at what discoveries can be made. One might notice the pleasant sensation that relaxed breathing brings to our body. It may be very mild and barely perceptible, but it's there. When we can be wholly engaged with the simple pleasure of breathing, we find ourselves with a refined sense of completeness in that moment. All we need to know is the joy of the breath. In that moment, we know that simply breathing is enough and we want nothing else.
The benefits of practicing presence are immeasurable. When we learn how to be in a state of presence, we develop our intuition, we get to know who we really are, and we find focus in our lives, just to name a few.
I offer 1:1 sessions coaching clients on how to practice presence in their everyday lives. If this sounds like something you would like to do, just let me know and we can discuss it.

The mind can be construed as a double-edged sword. It is capable of providing us great benefit as well as great injury. Naturally, we want to cultivate our inner processes in such a way that we maximize or minds' capacity for doing good and to minimize its tendencies for causing pain and suffering.
It is important, in this juncture in our evolution, to nurture our minds in a way that will bring us greater joy. The mind tends to operate in a rather haphazard way, bounding from thought to thought with little or no apparent prompting of direction. Our minds seem to have a mind of their own. It might appear that our minds are thoroughly out of our control as if we have no choice of the kinds of things that drift across our minds.
Although thoughts seem to come out of the blue, they are, in fact, conditioned
by previous patterns of thought. The thoughts that our mind produces now have been shaped by its history of thinking. This history can connect all the way back to previous lives we have lived as well as our current life history of thinking.
Neuro-scientific research has shown that routine patterns of thought make incremental but substantial changes in the way the brain is structured and the way the mind functions. These alterations make the brain more effective at doing what it is asked to do. If we habitually think in certain ways, then our minds become more adept at these patterns of thought. Patterns of thought becomes belief. Beliefs manifest patterns of behavior and circumstances that can benefit us or injure us.
Thus, as the concept of conditioning suggests, positive or wholesome thoughts create a propensity for more positive or wholesome thoughts. Fortunately, we can use this dynamic principle to our advantage. While we may not be in conscious control of each and every thought, a meditation practice can show us that we can choose which thoughts to entertain and to develop and which to observe and release. In this manner, we can influence the kinds of thoughts we are more likely to produce in the future.
Knowing this, we can use our power to select and foster or relinquish thoughts that can help us to cultivate a skillful and clear mind that serves us well.
I invite you to become aware and observe your thoughts as they arise, but also identify the kinds of thoughts you are having. Once identified, we can make conscious choices about how we will handle them.
What can occur in a QHHT session or in a Mindfulness Coaching session is when one begins to wake up to the types of thoughts they habituate, one comes to an understanding of how these habitual thoughts have manifested problematic patterns in one's life. And, with this self-knowledge, one can begin to shift and change the trajectory of ones life altogether.
