Change the channel.
Not the TV channel, silly.
But the channel inside your brain.
Oh, you didn’t know we have different channels in our heads?
Yep! So many channels.
Switch the off button on anxiety and fear
and discover peace and joy instead.
Sounds difficult, almost impossible to do, doesn’t it?
When I first heard about this strategy my first thought was: “Oh, not me. I am the Queen of Gloom and Doom. I don’t know how to be unless I’m practicing worst case scenarios in my head.”
How can I ever switch the channel from sadness to joy?
From fear to calmness and confidence?
But it’s easier to do than I thought.
It’s about acknowledging, and then letting go of, thoughts and feelings that block you from having a joyful life. Know it’s there and then release them.
If you open yourself up to the universe,
to it’s abundance,
to it’s joy,
to it’s perfection,
then you will find a way to switch the channel whenever life throws you a curve ball that you think you can’t handle.
But you can.
Life is full of curve balls and fast balls.
It’s how we choose to respond when they come flying at us that makes all the difference.
So, change the channel my friends.
