Depending on how we use the power of our thoughts, they can either help us or hurt us.
What would you do if…
You suddenly had a crisis show up in your life?
I have a girlfriend who started having some health issues all of a sudden and when she called her doctor’s office they seemed to be concerned as well.
So concerned… they scheduled a colonoscopy for the next Monday (5 days away).
As she told me about everything, I could see the worry and fear on her face.
The good thing is she was able to say, “I’m trying not to freak out.”
Over the years, I have come to believe that our thoughts are one of the most powerful LifeTOOLS we have at our disposal. They will either:
HELP US or HURT US
If we leave our brain to run on autopilot, I can guarantee you the direction it will take is to HURT US.
Our brains are more wired for the negative!
So, the LifeTOOL I thought of to help my girlfriend stay focused on a positive outcome is a really simple one:
An Intention Card!
This allows us to “anchor” our mind in a positive direction rather than be HIJACKED by the negative.
It’s Our Anchor to Hope!
Notice – it says the exact statement the doctor would make to my girlfriend at the conclusion of her test.
To make it even more powerful, you can have someone else holding on to an Intention Card too!
For example, I also had one which said the exact statement the doctor would say to me. My card had the word “you” replaced with “she”.
How to Use an Intention Card:
Step 1 – Think of the positive outcome you’d like to have.
Step 2 – Write it down on a piece of piece of paper you can fit in your pocket.
Step 3 – Take it out & read it as often as possible, think from that
outcome as if it is a done deal! The more you can think it – the BETTER!
What happened with my girlfriend?
Turns out, her test came back with even better news than what she’d written on her card!
