Powerful Questions

How often do you have an inner dialogue that starts off after a bit of a random thought about a situation, but suddenly, it becomes a debilitating “truth”? For example, you’ve had to cancel plans with a friend and they seem ok about it, but, in your mind you start saying things like … “I bet they are mad at me” or, “I know they don’t like me anymore I can feel it”.

Our most powerful conversations happen within our own minds! If you find yourself going around in circles from a story you “told yourself”, why not try asking yourself these four questions:

1. Is it true?

2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true?

3. How do you react when you believe that thought?

4. Who would you be without the thought?

You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how effective these 4 questions are at turning off the random fears and insecurities your thoughts have created, leading you to a more settled peaceful heart and mind. Give it a go. It takes practice, but it’s a helpful tool when overwhelm and uncertainty strike.

You can look into it further – the questions are from “The Work by Byron Katie”.
