Come Join Our Conversation on Mindful Living Through the Holidays
Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST (details below)
As Valentine's Day approaches, the silent influences of our belief systems are deep at work. Some of us may have unspoken expectations building, while others may be at the mercy of their inner critic as they face the upcoming holiday alone or with someone, yet still alone.
Mindful Living is based in intentionally monitoring the thoughts and beliefs of the mind. We are helped by remembering that belief systems create our thoughts and thoughts create our feelings. I like to say that feelings are simply like a traffic light to our thoughts, and the thoughts are just indications of how outdated our belief systems may be.
What expectation might you already have in the back of your mind for Valentine's Day? Our expectations can lead us to our greatest disappointments. The power of an expectation builds in the subconscious mind similar to a "fact". However, an expectation is truly a one sided conversation in the mind. Our Mindful Living Call will encourage you to think about what expectations you may have, and where your imagination may be taken these first thoughts. Are these reasonable expectations? (That can be a judgment, not a fact.) Can you express these expectations? Think about if you would like to be on the other side of non-expressed expectations. Whether we are not in a loving relationship during Valentine’s Day, the day may bring on sad feelings --and, even when we are in loving relationships, our expectations of what this day should be, often times can disappoint.
What if we could identify some mindful living techniques, that could empower us to avoid the pitfalls that can hijack our inner peace during the holidays? The good news is We Can! - and that is what we will be talking about on our upcoming Mindful Living Call.
We hope you will join us for our first of many Mindful Living calls. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, the focus of this week’s call is about our expectations surrounding this holiday of LOVE. Since these calls are really for YOU…we encourage you to send questions in ahead of time, by leaving a comment below -- or feel free to ask questions during the call.
Update to this blog post, here is the recording replay.
