We are wired to avoid threat, to resist and run away from change. Wired to stay safe at all costs. So panic becomes easy when everyone seems to be panicking. The danger seems big. You keep getting fed negative news to confirm your thoughts of worry and dread. What a snowball effect!
We are also wired to adapt. To be logical and think things through and make sense of them. We can be in control, we can calm our fears. We learn from every experience like this because we now have new thought patterns, new neuropathways.
I don’t like being told what to do or have things taken away from me. However, I am sensible and I know enough about human nature and the neuro plasticity of our brains to know that ultimately I have control of this. No one has control over me.
Can I go out to eat, no.
Can I fly anywhere I want right now, no.
That doesn’t mean I’m not in control.
I’m in control. I choose to breath today and calm the crazy dire thoughts that want to control my mind. I can choose my own thoughts and today I choose ones that serve me, that are truthful and hopeful. I am full of life and I choose life over fear. God is not the god of fear so I refuse fear.
I have more than enough and all things work out together for my good. I have those I love near and far. I am creative so nothing is out of my reach. I am thoughtful so no one has to go without a positive uplifting message. I have a genius mind and I’ll find ways around and under and through difficult times.
My intuition and brilliant mind will come up with just the right solutions that work for me and my family. I believe others are there for me and I am not alone. I choose to be surrounded by love and joy and happiness; surrounded by hope and solutions and wisdom. I am more than enough. I have all the resources I need. I have all the time I need. I have everything I need for this moment in time, already in and around me. I get exactly what I need exactly when I need it.
I am in control.
This is going to be an amazing day!
