Thoughts become Things

So do you? Well, this child sure did and he told ‘The Mighty Shadow’ his reason why…

he said even though the songs were non-sense people were liking the non-sense music…so the child made sense of it; that is must be Obeah…

Making Sense of Our World 

We all need to make sense of our World and we do that by coming up with our own reasoning and theories… and we are free to choose any reasoning we like…Obeah could be one of them…

Making Sense when things seem odd/strange

There are some things that do seem oddly strange…

so Dr. Winston Bailey a Trinbagonian calypsonian recently passed, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r4-7EgYuewwas faith would have it another Trinbagonian calypsonian Winston Scarborough ‘The Original De Fosto Himself’ NOT only attends his funeral service but performed singing about meeting the obeah… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WleoW3eg96o 

Mind over Matter or Matter over Mind

Whatever we choose to believe would make us:

choose the thoughts we pay attention,

result in the type of emotional energy we generate if/when anything comes up that we explain using this ‘obeah’ reasoning,

lead to our mind causing us to search out things that prove us right…and so our mind on our reasoning in this case ‘obeah’ leads to us literally discovering matter (actual evidence to support what we have in our mind)

Does it matter?

Really we are all free to choose our reasoning for odd events. The only question is “how is that reasoning working for us?” if it is working for us then great, but if it is not…the good news is that it is a case of mind over matter where we can change our mind and consider different reasons to explain what happened and so experience new emotions and choose new behaviors and find other evidence to support different explanations…

but for those of us who think ‘obeah’ can make luck in our love relationships…well guess we would consider what Georgie does as a good move to improve our relationships;

For those with a different explanation on the relationship challenges, there are other options…

Man or woman or child some of us are daily making ourselves into  Ant Man…. we wake and we put on our Ant Man suit….

we have been bitten by that ANT …we watched it, we played with it and we knew it would happen and it did, we were bit by

A

Negative

Thought….. and everybody knows ANTs move in groups so soon enough one ANT led to

A

Negative

Thought

Syndrome…..and the more we practice being Ant Man  the more our biology changes and soon enough we would not need to even wake and put on our suit …we become the soon…and so we say ..we are

down in the dumps

feeling sad

feeling fed up

feeling depressed

hopeless

and helpless….it all started with one ANT….

They say there is some real science behind the Ant Man film, the new one http://time.com/3960542/science-ant-man-film/ 

I cannot say yeah or nah..but I can tell you as a therapist that there is a real science to monitoring

A

Negative

Thought….. simply recognize that it is a thought..and let it come and go…and respond by

Working

At

Something

Positive……that positive thing can be an action…like snap ourselves with a rubber band, a phrase like “rewind” that reminds us to think a new thought more in keeping with reality and/or that is more positive, listen to positive music, or do something that relaxes us…

so whether you are going to watch https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-new-ant-man-and-the-wasp-trailer-is-the-perfect-inf-1825665976

Dear Positive Psychology People, Whatsoever we believe as true becomes true. One main difference between those of us who CHOOSE daily 👣 to have our positive psychology turned on and those who do not…is the idea of getting ahead in life….. Who or what can truly stop us from getting ahead in life? Okay so some say my parents, others say the government, some say circumstances….but guess what the one thing that prevents us from getting ahead in life is OUR 👿💭 thoughts…Yes people can but obstacles…Yes we all have different life circumstances and some of us have come into tough circumstances…Yes people can be out to “get” us…yet it is for us to increase or decrease what is presented….and when we are blocked or feel blocked we can sit and have a PIT😢 Part😭 or we can accept that it is what it is and pull out our Positive Psychology…

 

As usual we are here 24/7 supporting #carryon and #positivepsychology @ https://karryon.privacemail.com
