The shift can be a subtle as looking for things that I am grateful for and writing a mental list of gratitude, or better yet getting out a piece of paper and writing the gratitude list. Or I will look around in wonder at all the beauty around me and thank God for the gifts of this beautiful world. Once i have made that shift in my thinking then my mood and energy improves, I am then able to hear the quiet voice inside of me and get the insight or wisdom that serves me so much more.
If those negative ego thoughts keep creeping into my mind I then get out a piece of paper (or I even use my notepad on my phone) and write down what those thoughts are and let them go again. I like my life so much more when I am thinking positive happy thoughts, when I am open to hearing that quiet inner voice of truth and when I am making a conscious effort to focus on all that is good around me.
