Like attracts like is found in”Nathaniel Hawthorne’s thrilling story of ‘The Great Stone Face.’ Each day a little boy looked upon the kindly features of a stone image on the mountainside and each day he grew to possess the qualities of character and also the physical likeness of that which he saw pictured in the face which he loved.”
Recently I took the time to evaluate the images and pictures which are being stored in my mind. These are mental images which I have created focusing on my goals. Goals that are centered around my work as well as other parts of my life. By taking the time to evaluate, I can quickly summarize how and if my goals are being accomplished, my emotional responses to situations – whether positive or negative, as well as the stress level placed on my physical body as I deal with situations which come up throughout the day. After a close evaluation, I quickly decided that the time had come for a few slight changes as well addressing the areas that are in great need of a grand overhaul.
The process is simple. First is the understanding as to the type of response that you are getting and giving for your efforts. For example, goals that you set are they being accomplished? How is your stress level? Happy, sad, easily angered, able to stay calm in crisis? Are you feeling tired and worn out or filled with enthusiasm looking forward to the next day’s adventure?
Second – Once I took note of the physical outcome – meaning how I was reacting or others reacting towards me, my mental and emotional state; I discover the underlying thought or impression connected to these responses.
The idea is to get a clear understanding of the mental picture that is being created and formed in your head. These are the ideas that generate automatic responses either positive or negative. With each change that lifts an old negative belief I could feel the energy of my system raise. I became more enthusiastic and feelings excited for life.
Something out of the ordinary happened which emphasized the new change that I was creating/ Randomly my cell phone created a new background choosing a photo I had taken of a beautiful evening sky covered in the many warm shades of oranges. (see picture above) Now every time I look at my phone I am reminded of the gift and the ability to change…..to create a new picture.
