Ever had one of those days, when things just spin out of control no matter what you do? You have? Welcome to club of "life on rotation". Because this is what happens when vicious circle takes over your life.
This, however, does not have to be. Personally and professionally, I have found 5 strategies to be most effective in stopping yourself from going into a catatonic maze in times of vicious circle. These strategies are interrelated, and when applied can help you keep your sanity.
1. Shift your focus by letting go of problem and not trying to fix things. There are times when situations are best left alone temporarily. Your wanting to control a volatile or calamitous situation when you are overwhelmed only makes things worse. The best approach is to turn your attention to other matters and relax.
Getting yourself to relax may be difficult at first when a problem is gnawing at you. When this happens, take a deep breath, listen to your intuition and move away from scene of tension. Take charge and do what is good for you. Be creative and take a break!
2. Choose your thoughts carefully. It is only natural that when things get out of control your thinking gets impaired. Still, it is important to watch your thoughts and emotions. For these are powerful energy which can constrict or open your path to finding new solutions, depending on how you use them.
I have great admiration for people who are able to remain calm and collected in heat of recurring catastrophes. These people often radiate a special glow which seems to single them out. I once asked a medical assistant of a colleague, how she was always able to remain poised in midst of all drama that went on 24/7 at work. She smiled at me and replied that when she was young her mother always reminded her that she could choose way she wanted to see things, especially in difficult times. She said that knowledge was what got her through primary school. Because kids were often cruel to her, since she never new her father. So instead of thinking herself depraved, she chose to think of herself as being privileged to have special love and attention of her mother all to herself!
3. Change and raise your vibration by focusing on what gives you joy. When you choose thoughts that support you and your condition, built up pressure dissipates and you are more at ease. This makes it easier to raise your inner vibration from this position.
