It is funny that the world has become a place where even a little child wants peace nowadays. While the child battles to find tranquility between homework, we as adults encounter a mini world war inside us.
The mental chatter you have in your mind with the past, the decisions, and fears is simply the mind having a squabble with your inner self. You are only human if you encounter various kinds of incidents that bring about happiness, sorrow, peace, and all forms of things life throws at you. That wee bit of friction you have with your mind is essential to survive and bring a purpose to your life on earth. Read away to open a whole new idea to your thought world which will ring a bell.
Don’t reprogram old tapes
Va…nu kavalaya…nu kavali…ra ra ra ra…. Did you just start vibing to the song as soon as you read it? Just like listening to our favorite songs on repeat mode, when you try to do the same thing with your past occurrences, it brings you nothing but conflict in your subconscious mind. Let me tell you something, your subconscious mind is very blunt and honest, more than your close friend. What you feed your mind matters. Make sure you provide well-nourished good thoughts.
We all have times when we go into a dark mode thinking about all our past mistakes, our childhood trauma, negative things people said, bullying, body shaming, and whatnot. This world gives us a fair share of everything to everyone, but it is in our hands to either learn and reprogram our minds or dwell in it and make ourselves miserable. Be it something negative your parents said, don’t keep playing the same old tape again and again till you reach your threshold. Break the cycle, and say to yourself, “I’m an adult now, I have the emotional maturity to live my life in joy and peace and neither the words uttered by my parents nor the childhood trauma has the right to mess up my present life.” You choose what you want to think. Don’t let your mind do that for you.
Now go vibe with Kavala, not your past.
Speak with your inner child
We all have lost our inner child somewhere along the way growing up. It’s high time we wake them up and make peace with them. All of us might have gone through different circumstances during our springtime, and something or someone or the other would have compressed the blossoming you, which till day affects your current life. There are times when we can’t help when those past events come rushing in and to escape from those dreadful times, we indulge ourselves in things that we ought not to do. Escaping only makes it worse because you are more likely to think about those thoughts again and it’s going to keep repeating. It’s a trap you prepare for yourself. One way out is to meditate and engage in thoughts about loving who you are now. Trust me, God is not going to give you another lifetime if you mess up this one big life.
Every living soul is given the capacity to think wisely, and we must use it to our full potential. Sit down alone by yourself and speak to your inner child and deal with the conflict you are fighting and forgive anyone who has done you wrong and let them go in peace. Relieve yourself from the mental conflict.
Rechoose your modus vivendi
Yes, you heard it right. Not only Hitler dictated Germany, but your lifestyle is dictating your life. It includes your friends, your way of eating, your work life, the activities you do on a day-to-day basis, and how you spend your weekend. It all shapes you as a person and decides your future. Leave the bad habits that you formed earlier and put your heart and soul to create new life-changing routines. When your work turns strenuous, don’t battle it out inwardly and throw all the anger toward your dear ones; dare to remain tranquil and be kind.
Don’t abide in your “Self-pity, or I can’t change myself from my mental conflicts” thoughts. This is not you; you are way more capable and stronger to defy those fears and teach a fellow human to overcome theirs too.
