Guided Imagery for Shifting Negative Thoughts

Here comes the Sunshine Train!

How often do you witness negative thoughts going through your mind? Are you aware of what triggers negative thoughts for you? How quickly do you shift negative thoughts into positive thoughts?

Last night a simple little thing happened that set off a chain of negative thoughts in my mind. Because I have established a long pattern of cultivating the witness, I watched those thoughts quickly spiraling deeper into negativities, and I thought, “Wow, that’s a really dark train!”

I laughed to myself, thinking that yes indeed, that “train of thoughts” was very black and heading into a dark black tunnel… and that’s when I thought, “Good-bye dark train… Here comes the Sunshine Train!” Spontaneously I visualized a cheerful train filled with Sunlight… and I imagined that God was driving the Sunshine Train, and all I had to do was surrender and take my happy seat… then I mused that my small self had been driving the dark train, but on the Sunshine Train, my higher self could just relax and trust that all is heading in the right direction!

You can use this visualization anytime you notice a negative train of thoughts beginning to chug through your mind… Simply banish the dark train into a black tunnel… and get on the Sunshine Train! You can visualize your Sunshine Train to be however you like… paint it in your favorite colors… decorate it in your personal style… and notice who is driving your Sunshine Train… and is there any music playing on your happy train? Is coffee being served?

I hope this funny little visualization helps you to shift your negative trains of thought into positive trains of thought! This is yet one more way to help Happy Up your life! Choo, choo!! 🙂

And remember… Shift Happens!

God Gives Our Globe A Good Shake

Perhaps we are each inside our own snow globe, and all the little snowflakes are the elements of karma, destiny, fate, free will, chance, luck, synchronicity, grace, coincidence, temperament, personality, and so on… And when we are born, God gives our globe a good shake, and where it all lands creates our own unique constellation… This would explain why there is no set rule book, and it can be mysterious (and maddening) to discern which elements are at play at any given time in our lives.

For example, how do we know when to surrender to destiny and when to take action with our own free wills? They say to align your will with the Divine Will, but how do we exactly do that?

May All Beings Be Free of Suffering

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May You Surrender to Something Greater & Enjoy the Humility Vibration

 

May you appreciate all the women in your life.

May you feel your wholeness.

May your weekend be blessed with deep peace.

May you surrender to Something Greater and enjoy the humility vibration!

 

When you let go of the idea that you are doing everything alone, in that moment of surrendering a relaxation happens in your being. It’s like when you suddenly realize that you are tensing your shoulders and you let them relax down. Ahhh. Yes. That’s right.

That feeling of relaxation arises from the humility vibration. When you surrender to a power beyond yourself, that activates the humility vibration, which gives you feelings of peace, calm, trust, and lighthearted curiosity. While enjoying the humility vibration you still take action, but you take action knowing that you are being assisted by Something Greater. “Let go and let God” does not mean that you lie down and quit, but rather it means that you let the Divine help you.

I’m reminded of that beautiful story about Jesus called “Footprints in the Sand” in which he tells the person that during their most difficult times he carried them. It is a good reminder that we are never alone. No matter what your religion or other cosmic belief system, there is Something Greater that supports you.

May All Beings Know Deep Peace.

Happy International Women’s Day!

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Prayer: Master of Your Destiny

 

May you align your will with the Divine Will and become the Master of your destiny!

May your weekend be blessed with just what you need to feel rejuvenated, balanced, and sparked with magic!

May all beings be free of suffering. May all beings be happy!

 

Lately I have seriously been questioning the phrase “Let Go and Let God.” How do we do that? How do we navigate this terrestrial terrain where Jesus said to “Be in the world but not of it.” How do we know when to act and when to wait? It seems that aligning our will with the Divine Will is a skill which is maybe different for each of us. Perhaps there is no rule book and we each have to figure this out as we go.

And yet, Sri Swami Sivananda said, “You are the Master of your destiny. God helps those who help themselves.” What do you think of that? Are you finding a good balance between your free will and God’s Will for you?

 

Dear readers, in the month of February I will be posting blog articles here on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
Let’s all make this month a happy high vibe one!
Gratitude Up, Happy Up, Magic Up!!!

Sweet Surrender

Here is one of my daily prayers:

“Please help me to keep surrendering deeper and deeper to God, accepting what God gives me from day to day and night to night (Cheerfully), having full faith and trust in God’s unfolding of life, and also showing up and doing my part… aligning my will with the Divine Will.”

May your days and nights be blessed with sweet surrender, acceptance, and the strength to show up and do your part.
