Over the last several months I’ve written dozens of articles on Tinnitus. In those articles I’ve addressed everything from getting relief from tinnitus, to sleeping with tinnitus, sex and tinnitus, marriage and tinnitus and even quantum physics and tinnitus. Today is the day you get on with it and start mastering your life and your tinnitus.
I’ve said it hundreds of times before and will continue to say it. Some people wake up day after day hoping something will change, but never take any action to affect change. If you want more joy in your life, you must create joy. It will not happen to you by accident. You must take steps to create change that will allow joy to come into your life.
If you are seeking less anger in your life, less stress, or less pain, you must do something today that will allow more peace, more pleasure and more relief into your life. It’s not enough to think about it, to wish it, to hope for it. You see, hoping keeps you in the state of hoping. Wishing keeps you in the state of wishing. Thinking keeps you in the state of thinking.
There are two things you must do to attract those things you desire into your life. The first is to stay open to the opportunity you seek. Stay open to healing and open to joy. If you keep openness in your heart you will be in a state of allowing. which means allowing things to come into your life.
Most people stay closed off to such things by feeling constant anger, pain, stress, or by constantly complaining. Feeling is the key. If you constantly feel anger, you are closed off to feeling pleasure. Your feelings, your emotions expand and create more of that reality for you.
On the other hand, if you do something that makes you feel pleasure and focus on that pleasure, you are allowing pleasure to enter your reality, and that will expand. What you focus on expands. Again, your feelings are the key to creating your reality.
I used to consider myself a tinnitus patient. Hence, what expanded for me was being a tinnitus patient. I used to consider myself a tinnitus sufferer, therefore, I not only allowed more suffering to come into my life, I encouraged that simply by letting my thoughts be the pilot of my life.
If your thoughts lead to your emotions, and your emotions lead to your actions, and your actions lead to your reality, then the key to mastering your life is this; take your thoughts away from the guy now at the helm. He’s on auto pilot. You take the controls back, and you become the pilot and navigate your life.
You will not become the master of your life over night. It takes practice to become aware of your thoughts and emotions, and then choose to focus on them or not. But, I believe this with all my heart. What you focus on expands, and your emotions are the key to the ignition. Your thoughts are now on auto-pilot, yet you can take the controls back and pilot your vessel on your own. Once you do this, you are now navigating your life from your soul rather than from random thought (whatever comes into your mind). Once you practice noticing what you are thinking, you will see how repetitive your thoughts are, how useless they are and how much they sabotage your life.
It’s not positive thinking that will change your life. It’s more than that. It’s mastering your emotional controls, plus navigating your thoughts with positive intention. Will you continue to make mistakes? Sure! But, mistakes are beacons of opportunity which are intentionally put there in order for you to change your navigation and get on the right course!
So, in essence, it’s positive thinking plus positive feeling plus positive action. There is no such thing as random suffering. You can’t heal your tinnitus with the same mind that created it. You must now become a conscious participant in your life. Change your thoughts and change your emotions and your tinnitus will change.
