I decided to write on something that I have been putting myself through for years; REACTING ON MY FEELINGS!
If I felt good life was great, but when I felt bad life was awful. So I decide to dig a little deep on why I was putting myself through this pain. Then I realized that I was putting my thoughts and feelings on auto-pilot. Here’s how I came to this conclusion, 1. I have had no control on how I reacted to things and 2. I had been looking for sympathy when things were bad.Subsequently I thought to myself, if I am looking for sympathy, then maybe I am addicted to drama. Kind of like most of us in the world, we love these so called reality shows, we watch the local news and weather channels, read the newspaper and always trying to ‘keep up with Joneses’ or should I shall I say, keeping up with Kardashians.
In my life, once something bad would happen, my mind would ponder on the situation for days. I would have self-talk and derive these fictitious story in my head so that I would know how to react if the situation should ever become real. This would literally drive myself insane!!! And I know that I’m not the only one out here like this, because we may not even realize that we are doing this to ourselves. For me, I would be sending my mind around and around in circles, not getting anywhere. Like hamster on a wheel. I have to admit that I didn´t realize for me to change my life, I have to change my feeling frequency!
I was causing a chemical imbalance in my brain and it was creating long term side effects both physically and mentally. I am sure that you are probably asking yourself, ‘What is this Chemical Imbalance that you are talking about?’ Quick lesson here and I am not a biologist nor a Neuroscientist but I do have a little research on how the brain works. So here we go, I’m about to go real scientific on you — we have receptors in our brain, and receptors are proteins that reside on the membrane of the postsynaptic neuron. A receptor is a molecule that is sensitive to a particular signal, which is the neurotransmitters. The neurotransmitter neatly binds with the receptor then ‘locks’ resulting in a program or dampening of the neural signal. So every time this happens, the receptor now has a permanent memory. Now in theory, if you are constantly processing one thing or situation over and over again, the brain locks in the repetitious data and from that point your brain is on Auto Pilot.
Now you don’t have to think about a thing or situation the next time you engaged in that activity because it is simply ‘locked’ into your memories log. Think about this, have you ever been in your car going home and you starting thinking about a particular incident that may have happened in your life and you were so engage in that thought that while you were driving you didn’t remember how you got home? This is what your brain does when a receptor has bind with neurotransmitter. This is also what was happening to me when I reacted to my feelings, both positive and negative. I kept doing this interference to my brain and it was causing my feelings and Thoughts to be on Auto pilot.
Rhonda Bryne says it this way in her book “The Secret and The Power”;
“Many people don’t know about the power of good feelings, and so their feelings are reactions or responses to what happens to them. They have put their feelings on auto pilot, instead of deliberately taking charge of them. When something good happens, they feel good. When something bad happens, they feel bad. They don’t realize that their feelings are the cause of what is happening to them. As they react with negative feelings to something that has happened, they give out more negative feelings, and they receive back more negative circumstances. They become trapped in a cycle by their own feelings. Their life goes around and around in circles not getting anywhere, like a hamster on a wheel, because they don’t realize that to change their life, they must change their feeling frequency!”
This quote made me realize that I needed to take control of my feelings immediately. When I paid attention to my reaction about a certain incident, I was able to directly distinguish my feelings more and positively change the frequency from a negative feeling to a positive feeling. I recognized that the situation had to change to reflect my new frequency. If something negative happened in my life, I have the ability to change it by my thoughts and feelings. Now I’m not saying things happened overnight, because just as I mentioned before it’s about repetition data being stored in the brain. I have practiced changing my feeling frequency every moment that I get.
Every single second of my life is an opportunity for me to change the direction of my life because at any instant I can revolutionize the way I feel. I know that, it doesn’t matter what I felt earlier and it doesn’t matter what mistakes I have made but when I change the way I feel, I am on a different frequency. The law of Attraction reacts to it at once! When you decide to change the way you feel, the past has forgiven and forgotten. Know that your destiny can change when you change the way that you feel and not allow your thoughts or feelings to continue to be on AUTO PILOT!
