Let go of your worries – and live in the moment!

Maybe you read the Mark Twain quote of Esther’s Monday Bubble.
“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.””

I know this from my own life. When I was a child, I was sitting like a paralized in the chair in front of our main entrance – waiting for my parents to return home from the supermarket. I worried something might have happened to them. (This was birth of the cellphones).

As a teenager I worried about my boyfriends. “Why didn’t he  call me yet” (I was waiting by my parents’ landline).

Later on, I got children of my own, and then the worries just grew to dimensions – and while my children were growing up, the worries were growing as well.

Some time I would lie in my bed for hours – just waiting for my teenage sons to finally returning home. Until they did, I had imagined all kinds of accidents.

The many faces of worries
Worries may have many faces – money troubles, work troubles, relationsship troubles etc. Common for many (maybe even most of them): The quote of Mark Twain is still valid. The worries are growing immensely and they seem to be genuine within our heads – but (luckily) they are rarely “fullfilled”.

What happens to us, if we worry in advance?
When we worry, we actually lose our ability to be present in the moment. we worry about something, of which we do not know the result. We don’t know yet, whether in fact we need to worry at all. This we won’t know – until later on – in the future. This means that we are mentally in the future, in which we are worrying about an illusion – which might never happen. This may influence us both mentally, emotionally – and even physically (heartbeat, sweat, etc.)

Hvad sker der med os, når vi lader være med at bekymre os
If, however, we do not worry in advance, we’ll be able to enjoy the present much more and take things as they happen. In case anything should happen (which we previously would have been worrying about in advance), we’ll be able to act on it. People might even become better at making good decisions, when they are experiencing some major crisis, if they have let go of worrying in advance.

What can we do to avoid worrying in advance?
Well – wouldn’t it be great if you could just decide to stop worrying in advance. Of course, people do exist, who are able to do this. But for many people, it is difficult to let go of an old habit, which they have carried around from childhood.
Luckily, there are good alternative methods, which can help. Besides therapy and coaching – there is eg. thoughtfield therapy / EFT. This is a fantastic tool, which has helped a lot of people acutely as well on a long sight. Look at my website for more info. www.reikihealer.dk

What about you – are you worrying in advance as well?

Have a fantasti  weekend – Life is waiting for you!
