Changing from Within
We talk a great deal about how important it is to make the changes we want to see in our reality by changing ourselves from within. This is mainly because The Law of Attraction responds to the person we are, what emotions we feel by giving us a reflection of that. There’s another reason why changing from within is so effective in helping us get to where we want to go, so even if you weren’t sure as to whether The Law of Attraction is real or not, you probably wouldn’t want to bet against the possibility that your own subconscious mind is real. That’s because our subconscious mind handles a multitude of functions that keep us alive, like heart rate, blood pressure, enzyme levels, digestion, and so much more.
Anyhow, most of us have come to accept the concept that much of communication is non-verbal. Just as we don’t have to think about how our digestion, blood pressure and other things are controlled by the subconscious mind, we don’t need to think all of the posturing we do while communicating, gesturing, voice inflection and intonation, either. We can pay attention to these things and change some of them but for the most part- we’re too busy verbalizing what we’re trying to say to bother actively thinking about the rest. We just do it.
Our subconscious mind handles converting how we really feel into all of the non-verbal ways of saying it, so quite often we find ourselves saying one thing with our words but something completely different with our mannerisms. This can cause the person we are trying to communicate with to feel like they’re getting “bad vibes” when we are trying to cover up how we really feel deep down inside with our words.
If we understand that we wish to work within ourselves to resolve anger, frustration, jealousy, hurt, and other negative states of mind, what we are then left with is positive conscious and subconscious communication which is much more pure and genuine and far less likely to conflict with our words. So you see, even if we leave The Law of Attraction out of this discussion, there is a big reward to be had in working on ourselves internally so we stay in that “happy positive” state of mind most of the time. We aren’t trying to “talk a good game” anymore, but “saying what we really feel” – we’ve just changed the way we feel so it matches our words.
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“What can I do to resolve the negative feelings I have so that my thoughts and words are pure and true?”
