Early in the program, part of my spiritual quest included guided meditations on Wednesday evenings at a church. One of the things the pastor shared was that …what we focus on grows and multiplies.
The concept of our focus magnifying whatever it is on is also stated in the 4th edition of the Big Book on pages 416 through 421. Learning about this law of consciousness creates a responsibility and an opportunity for me to be thoughtful about where my mind is dwelling.
When I catch myself in a negative space about any person, place, thing or situation it takes only an instant to recognize the error – awareness – and shift my thoughts to focus on the solution. The solution can be seeing white light around the issue or people, or praying for those involved or working Step 1,2 and 3, giving it to God. I feel so much better when I shift my thinking – I only have to make the decision, do it and life does get better.
– If you find this helpful, pass it on to others.
Affirmation for the Day – ” I am thinking more positive thoughts.”
Remember to say the affirmation at least 3 times whenever you remember it, preferably in front of a mirror.
