It’s so easy to do – you don’t hear from someone, so you imagine the worst. Someone doesn’t respond to you in the way that you expected, so you imagine it must be because they don’t like you, and so on.
Your imagination can become so active in these moments causing you make up stories that are very far from the truth. Yet you convince yourself that they are real.
It’s okay to be aware of what can happen and to be prepared for all eventualities, although if you allow your mind to continue with the imagined story that something terrible must be happening, you create more stress in your life than you need, you lower your vibration, and can end up feeling paralyzed by fear.
See if you can catch yourself the next time your imagination runs away with a story like this. Acknowledge the fear and re-direct your thinking to something that’s helpful. This way you can use your imagination to support you and raise your vibration, attracting more positive outcomes.
Try this affirmation:
“I release the need to imagine the worst. I choose instead to think in terms of solutions, to know that I can handle any situation, and to imagine the best possible outcomes.”
