Thoughts We Choose


We are building our awareness of ourselves: thoughts, words and deeds. The more awareness, the more empowered we become. That feels so good.

When we feel an upset, what is our reaction? Is this response aligned with the Forces of Good. Does it feel like a boost and promote Well Being? Below another story to illuminate the empowerment process.

The Story

Katelyn, one of five children, learned that one of her siblings suffered a fall. The 66-year-old brother Pete seemed most vulnerable of her family, a man living with autism and Parkinson’s disease, residing in an excellent group home.  

In the last two months Pete’s accodemt damaged one of his legs. He was briefly hospitalized and then received physical therapy as his residence stepped up to provide what services he needed.

Katelyn got frightened for Pete. Immediately she monitored his situation, visited, and increased her communication with him.

K brought her response to Pete’ story to a counseling session. “I notice I am telling myself now that ‘Life is fragile.’  As I scan my self-care regime, I notice my fear that I might fall, that my balance is not good enough. Life is so fragile!”

The Counselor

The Counselor asked, “Is your life more fragile because your brother took a tumble?”

No in fact life is not more insecure. You just got scared.

Moving forward, let’s lay out some messages for yourself that encourage what you DO want.

Law of Attraction tells us that on what we put focus attracts what we get. Wow.

‘Life is fragile.’ Do we want the results of a fragile life? No! Of course not.

Instead, how about this kind of statement: ‘I am becoming more balanced and stronger.’

With a broader view what else has come from this happenstance for Pete?

He has more kindness flowing to him, more connection in his home and with his siblings.

Now you can put attention on how much is going well, your own power and resilience, and the excellence of your self care.”

Katelyn: “Yes I feel that shift inside myself. I pay attention to my strength and how much I am growing. I thrive now.”

Please share your own wake up story. We benefit from the wisdom we acquire on this path.
