No. 3 – Awareness of Your Feelings

What you are feeling matters greatly for two reasons:

  1. Your feelings make your life happy or unhappy.
  2. They provide the level of energy for what you do.

It helps the quality of your life when you are aware of what you are feeling at any given time.

If you are experiencing a good, positive feeling you can improve the quality of your life by intensifying the feeling.

Alternatively, when you are experiencing an unhappy or negative feeling you can change it in order to improve the quality of your life.

Your feelings are entirely your own. You create your feelings. You can decide whether you wish to go on feeling any particular emotion. You can then decide whether to change the way you are feeling or whether to intensify the level at which you are experiencing that feeling.

Most people don’t think at all about their feelings, they just accept that whatever they are feeling is a natural consequence of what is happening in their life. But this is not so. You always have a choice. It can sometimes be hard to change a feeling, but it is always possible.

Today’s exercise: at regular intervals, tune in to your feelings and ask yourself, “am I enjoying this feeling? If so do I want to enhance the feeling? If I am not enjoying feeling this way, how would I like to be feeling?” Knowing what is going on in your feelings is one of the most important skills you can have. It is only when you make yourself conscious of what is going on in your emotions that you are able to gain control of this important source of positive happiness and energy.

Being aware of their feelings and taking charge of the way they feel is what groovy people do.

You will learn more about how to control your feelings in future posts. Or you can learn how to do this by reading the book Feeling Groovy.

No. 1 – Awareness of Your Thoughts

Awareness is knowing what’s going on inside and all around you.

Awareness is knowing what’s going on inside and all around you.

Today we are only going to talk about what is going on in your mind.

The job of your mind is to analyse what is going on so that you can decide what you should do.

Try this, for just 2 minutes, sit still, close your eyes and focus all of your attention on the traffic going through your mind. Please do this now – close your eyes and focus inside your mind.

Did you notice that you searched first for information from outside: you listened and sniffed to try to discover what was happening in your environment? You wanted to connect and to know that you are safe. But then, once there was nothing coming from outside, you started to focus on the traffic going through your mind. Perhaps you looked back and saw something that happened recently, or perhaps you looked forward and imagined what might happen in a certain scenario, or perhaps you started to plan the way you would like something to work out.

Thoughts are going through your mind all the time. You cannot stop them, it is the nature of your mind that it keeps searching, imagining, planning, deciding and changing its decisions.

The more conscious you are of what is happening in your mind the better will be your ability to direct your thoughts in the direction in which you would like your life to go.

Today’s exercise: at regular intervals, tune in to your mind and watch what is going on in there. Knowing what is going on in your mind is one of the most important skills you can have. It will enable you to become whatever you wish to become. Groovy people are aware of what is going on in their mind all
