DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK!
By Humberto Fortuna MA, MS
It is amazing how powerful thoughts can be and how much time and energy we dedicate to the negative ones. Even if you try not to think about negative thoughts, they seem to persist until they get your attention. If you are not prepared and don’t know how to handle them consciously, your thoughts end up in that blender on high speed.
Clinically speaking, the two most common diagnoses associated with intrusive thoughts are anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
By definition, the word, intrusive is when something is causing a disruption or annoyance through being unwelcome or uninvited. In my case, the intrusive thoughts were memories of a lost love.
If I refer or relate this situation to the Law of Attraction theory, I was in this mode:
“I want it…..I don’t have it”
The more you don’t have it, the more you want it
I would like to also add that intrusive thoughts can also be a symptom of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, or attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
While implementing Cognitive Defusion, it will allow you to begin the process of acceptance and commitment concerning an event that you are going through. It will help you to cope with uncomfortable thoughts and feelings.
Cognitive Defusion will allow you to reduce the functions of thoughts by altering the context in which they occur, rather than attempting to alter the form, frequency or situational sensitivity of the thoughts. The most important part of the Cognitive Defusion process, for me, was that it allowed my mind the……
Creation of space between myself and my thoughts and feelings so that they
Would have less of a hold over me….
Should we then say….DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK! While incorporating the distancing, disconnecting, or seeing thoughts and feelings for what they are and not what THEY say they are, we need to STOP, STEP BACK, and OBSERVE.
Embrace your thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty about them, while allowing and flowing with your being. Allow the flexibility in your mind, with the creation of the space between you and your thoughts, with the incorporation of mindfulness skills, and with the practice of self-acceptance. As I have said before, honor yourself and respect your feelings while putting yourself first, and take over the power of making yourself happy with no resistance.
Many times, all it takes is a few brief moments of conscious attention and acceptance for those thoughts and feelings to be released. It is usually when we fight against or resist unwanted thoughts, that they begin spinning without ending…until we say ENOUGH!
While embracing your thoughts, allow each thought a little bit of the attention that it is asking for. It is fine to do this and try to slow each thought down, since they will be very repetitive, fast, and overwhelming. Allow them to float, instead of rushing them, without giving those thoughts acknowledgement.
As you go through an evaluation of your journey, you will realize that there are many things that you may need to change in order for you to achieve what you are looking for. This book is an evaluation of an individual that has just come out of a relationship healing process. That individual is me. Or, it could be you.
As you heal, you ask yourself, “How come I didn’t see this before?” Maybe now you realize that must be changed for the sole purpose of achieving peace of mind, happiness, or even some sort of freedom and independency in your life.
Emotional Dependency can occur in many types of relationships, not just in a romantic, love relationship. Emotional relationships include children with their parents, parents with their children, co-workers or any situation that is causing you to be dependent. If you do not find your ‘true self,’ and become true to your feelings, nothing will work, especially with a dependency.
It is my intention to help you by sharing my experiences as well as teaching you how to embrace and honor yourself. In my case, I did a complementation of traditional and alternative medicine treatments that I will share with you throughout this book.
As an Energy Healer, I needed to combine the traditional and the alternative for a more natural healing process. I will teach you how to use the Law of Attraction, Akashic Records, Meditation, and exercises and techniques that helped me to achieve what I was looking for. I will show you how we are all surrounded by messages as well as learning to recognize and interpret them. As part of the alternative methodology that I used, I will share my experiences with my archangels and spiritual guides. While using ‘mindfulness,’ you will reconnect with unconditional love.
