Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want

So a while back feeling mentioned ‘The Law of Attraction’.  This was a concept I don’t remember hearing about before so off I went to the local library to see what I could find.  The heading of this post about worrying comes from Abraham Hicks and you can subscribe to a Daily Quote from them here.

And you know how one book leads you to another?  Well having read two books about it I then heard about ‘The Untethered Soul’ and boy oh boy was this an eye-opener.  This book really blew my mind!!

If you are working on meditation and changing your inner landscape then this book is for you and you can find further details at http://www.untetheredsoul.com/

And of course he’s been on Oprah! 😉

Author Michael Singer says spiritual growth can begin by silencing the negative thoughts in our minds. Watch as Michael shares a spiritual solution to use to regain inner peace when thoughts become distracting.

I am working really hard to practice what he suggests and much of it chimes hugely with Andy over at Headspace and what he advocates 🙂
The longer time goes on and the further into my recovery journey I go I realise that putting down the drink was just the tip of the iceberg of the path I was on and it is ALL good.  Over Easter I had a difficult family experience and although I recognised the anticipatory anxiety and the post event emotional hangover at no point did the thought of picking up a drink even cross my mind.  I was desperate to meditate instead!! 😀
Anyone else read this book and care to chime in?

  1. Hi Louise,

    (Aaah, library men…. hmmm…. now there’s a thought 😉 )

    How does Michael Singer advise to silence the negative thoughts? In the beginning of sobriety I just tried to ‘kill’ them myself, sometimes paying attention to them when they would in the future they could cause me to drink. Now I’m trying to find the root of them and have a look at that. Takes a lot of work, dirty, sometimes saddening work but in the end I get there. And that’s when I can walk another road. But, as yesterday: in my life there seem to be layers and layers and layers of waht you call it, uncovered thinking contructions? 🙂 So, sometime it is something with trees and the forrest and not seeing the one through the other.

    1. Hey feeling. Compassionate curiousity is the key 😉 Not good not bad just there. Thinking constructs are just that – constructs – so they can be undone and changed 🙂 xx
