ARE YOU WORRIED? AN EXCERPT FROM ONE OF MY BOOKS I'M WRITING

Perhaps your life is not where you thought it would be. If that is case, then chances are you are feeling anxious about your life. You are wondering how you will care for yourself, if your finances will be stable, and if your job is secure… providing you have one.


Well the main thing to remember is that worrying will not make a positive effect on your circumstances. What will make a positive impact is faith. 
Worry is truly only fear and fear will destroy your hope. Faith is confidence, and it will strengthen your hope as it deepens your understanding of your circumstances.


There are a few things in life that you can do to strengthen your faith and restore your mind to a worry free time. A few of the ways is through meditation, reading, loving, listening and offering.

Meditation is one of the oldest spiritual practices known to man. You do not have to be religious in order to meditate. Meditation is a great way to connect with your higher self, however, it is not only for that purpose. Meditation is an awesome source of energy enhancement. It helps to balance your body and mind and restore your emotional security.

Sometimes it’s our thoughts alone that make us feel unbalanced and uneasy. In fact, at times when there is nothing in particular disturbing us, an unbalanced mind will still find something to worry about. The mind is intelligent enough to sift through the rolodex of the brain and choose things to think about without us even realizing it. Well in the case of a person with unbalanced energy, they will automatically pick out anxious thoughts to ponder, which in turn creates more instability and could eventually manifest into anxiety, a real dis-ease of the mind.

When we feel insecure and uncertain, that is our body and mind indicating to us that our personal energy is out of whack and we need to pay attention and put in back in tune.
Just like a piano, a car, or most things we use on a daily basis, needs a tune-up from time to time, so do humans. This can be achieved through meditation.

Reading is not only an awesome way to escape from our own negative thoughts, but it’s also a way to teach us, guide us and inspire us. You can choose to read spiritual literature to balance your energy, but it’s not necessary, because one could gain inspiration from a real life story in a beauty magazine rather than a book they may not understand or care to read.  

You could Google topics that increase your knowledge, and through doing that you will fill your head with newer thoughts which will take precedence over the older negative ones.

Whenever you find yourself worrying or wondering about the future, it is best to distract yourself, and if you’re not a reader then perhaps you are a writer. So write your thoughts out and then read your own thoughts. You would be surprised at how much your own words will speak to you. Write down your worry and your concern. Then write back to yourself giving yourself advice that you’d give a friend, and take your advice, because it will be well worth it.

Loving others is one of the best ways to remove negative energy. It almost balances the body and mind immediately. What it does is release feels good hormones in your brain called serotonin, and this natural chemical increases your happiness to help balance your energy by encouraging you to focus on pleasure as opposed to pain.

Now you have to be careful with your comprehension of loving. It’s not to say that you are to receive love, it is to say that you give it. Not even to have it reciprocated but to just give it because it feels good. By giving love you help to not only balance you, but also others, because the person who you are expressing love to will feel the good effects and benefit from it greatly. Of course this will help to enhance your personal positive karma, but that’s not why you’re doing it. You’re doing it to balance your body and mind.

Listening to others is a way to balance your out of whack energy. Hearing about their own shortcomings, trials and tribulations can sometimes help to put your own worries into perspective. There is always somebody who is going to be worse off than you. The internet is riddled with stories of people who are experiencing true hardship. The suggestion here is not for you to go and Google a brigade of sad stories about others just to make yourself feel good because you’re doing better, the key is to put compartmentalize things in your brain.

By listening to others you can gain an extreme amount of balance. Chances are you are not the first one experiencing what you are feeling, and you won’t be the last, so it is quite possible that you may find some advice online. Perhaps a video online about a person who, like you, at one point was feeling hopeless, but still faced their fears and through their resilience they rose above their fear and turned it into faith.
They may teach you too how to face your fear and also turn it into faith.

Offering yourself is a rewarding way to balance any negative energy. By helping others you increase your goodwill, and you also raise your serotonin (that feel good chemical in your brain).  You can offer your time one Sunday a month at the local soup kitchen. You might want to volunteer at the local community centre. You may not have time to spare, so in that case you could simply offer your seat on the bus, perhaps your coffee money to a homeless person or even your lunch period to your employer who has errands to run. It is through offering that you bank your karma and gain respect.

So now that you have a few tools to help you combat the worry that tends to seep into your consciousness try them out and see how they work for you. Not all may work for you, but one will and it will help you to take control of your mind and balance your body.
Of course you may still ponder worrisome thoughts, but it won’t be as often, and the thoughts will not affect you as deeply, because you will have learned how to distract your mind from picking unhealthy thoughts to concentrate on.
