The best-written book on stress control is no help to you if you can’t find time to read it. If you only have a short while to spare, dip into the stress-busting suggestions described in this section. Whether you have one minute or half an hour, you’ll find ways to ease your day.

Mini-relaxations can help allay fear and reduce pain while you sit in the dentist’s chair or lie on an examining table. They’re equally helpful in thwarting stress before an important meeting, while stuck in traffic, or when faced with people or situations that annoy you.

Here are a few quick relaxation techniques to try.

Power of thot

If you feel like a victim, or a lil bit down, this article by Shirley Scott is really a good reading to perk you up 🙂

The Power Of Thought And How To Create Your Desired Reality

 What’s a thought? It’s pure energy! It can be focused or scattered. How powerful is this energy?

What does this unseen energy do for us or against us? Just by thinking something can we change our lives?

Where do thoughts come from? If we didn’t already have some knowledge about things, could we get thoughts about them?  A thought is the product of metal activity, an idea, notion or opinion. Wow, this could be complicated, so let’s simplify it.  I’d like to take you on a trip into the world of thought. 

A thought is an energy form that starts in our brain. It doesn’t stay in our brain because it’s energy and the minute we think it, it leaves us, like a radio wave. So we can forget what we just thought or we can take that idea and manifest it into reality.  Science is proving that our brain is like a generator of power.

It doesn’t know right from wrong or good from bad; that’s up to our consciousness and sub-conscious.  Our brain only knows it’s supposed to do two things.

  1. Put energy into ideas that we are focusing on so we can manifest them into reality.

  2. Bring us the energy or situation we are focusing on.

So if we’re focusing on being a victim, we’ll be a victim. If we’re focusing on being poor, we’ll be poor. If we’re focusing on our fears, we’ll have them brought to us so we can overcome them. If we focus on being afraid of taking that first step to manifest what we want, we’ll never take it. But if we focus and take that first step to change our life, the brain brings us more opportunities to take more steps in that direction.

 The power of thought to manifest what we want and even what we don’t want is very powerful. What we focus on is what we get. However, most of us don’t even think we’re focusing on something. The first thing we have to do is to find out what we’re focusing on.

Here are some questions you can ask yourself to find out what you’re thinking about:

  • Are you always thinking about money and how you never have enough?

  • Are you always focusing on what everyone else has instead of being grateful for what you have?

  • Are you focused on a fear of changing your job or you life in someway?

  • Are you afraid of losing your spouse or partner?

  • Are you focused on your bad childhood or adulthood?

  • Do you think you’re always a victim and never get what you want?

When we continuously tell people we’ve never received what we wanted, it’s like we’re telling the Universe that we’re a victim. We’re telling our brain that we’ll never get what we want because we’ve never gotten it before and why should we get it now. We’re telling ourselves that we aren’t good enough to get what we want. We’ve just talked ourselves out of getting something that we want because it has never happened before.

Ever hear the saying, “Change your mind, change your life”?
