How Being Emotionally Attached Affects Your Goals



Emotional Attachment to Thoughts, 
and How It Affects Your Goals

It is important to know what you don't want, but it is most important to know what you do want.  To find out what you want, it's good to eliminate what you know you don't want. This is a way to clarify what you do want.  What happens to many of us, however, is that we continue to focus on what we don't want.  I believe that we (society) learned to do this habit for generations, and, as you my already realize, when a pattern is instilled for many generations, in order to change it, it takes constant and diligent reflection or conscious awareness.

Take a look at what you are focusing on.  Is it what you want or is it what you don't want?  If you are focusing your emotional energy on what you don't want, most likely that will come in to play in your life.  As well, focusing on what you don't want clouds the ability to see what you do want.

Remember how emotions work; psychology research tells us so.  When we attach strong emotion to a thought, those memories--those thoughts, are always at the forefront.  We never forget them!  So, why not attach strong, positive, and passionate emotion to what you do want.  Events and circumstances in life will then present themselves in such a manner, because the strong, positive, and passionate emotions have attached themselves to those desired thoughts, to achieve your destined goal.

Life is not always this simple and complete, nonetheless.  When things--situations--come your way that are unexpected, unpleasant, or unwanted, remember to breath and let those feelings, emotions, and body sensations pass because, once again, we are talking about emotions, and if you let those emotions heighten uncontrollably, the unwanted circumstances always seem to remain longer and/or morph into something greater.

It is also important to remember that achieving goals is never a straight line because we are not perfect or uniform in our desires.  We are human.  We are always changing, morphing into something new.  So be flexible and adjust your desires accordingly when needed by continued reflection.

Throw Out Balance and Replace it With This

On the internet running through blog, Facebook, and IG posts or videos, there is always a wave of the same concepts of discussion each week. One person/business throws out an idea to talk about that week, and then many others (to figure out what they can discuss, post, or video that week) grab onto someone else's topic and put another spin on it. That's it. If you pay close attention to the posts, you will see what I am talking about. Take a look at the weekly discussions and see the uniformity in the topics of discussion, including the quotes that are posted. Perhaps it is coincidental. Perhaps it is collective energetic thought that brings this about. But, in most cases, I'm thinking it may be more about "What do I talk about this week?" and then grab an idea from someone else.

It is difficult to find weekly, let alone daily, topics to discuss and, at the same time, give good value to your audience. I get that. I've done the same thing. I'm guilty, but…

5 Strategies to Support Trauma Survivors

TRAUMA and ISOLATION

There is no single treatment for complex trauma such as PTSD or Complex PTSD, but the cornerstone of treatment is building a collaborative working relationship with the survivor. They need to restore safety and trust in human connection. The major drawbacks to healing from chronic trauma and C-PTSD is isolation. If individuals fear coming forward (due to stigma, minimization of the events, delayed reporting, an oppressive society, self-shame or public shaming) and how they may react to their environment, they are left to figure things out on their own. There are many individuals that never receive formal treatment and, instead, invest in their own methods by trial-and-error. I did because there was nothing out there. Also, anytime I'd go to the doctors office, it was said that "It was all in my head." Back then in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's, no one could see the enduring effects of chronic childhood abuse, repeated sexual assaults…

Our NOW Is Littered With Our Past

"Trying to resist, change, or avoid the enormous influence of the past keeps us foolishly focused on it. Yet we're reluctant to leave it behind, reluctant to transform the pervasive hold it has on our present-time lives. Not doing so, however, results in an endless continuum of living a "now" that is littered with the detritus of the past. There is no better arena to watch this play out than in our relationships."~Nancy Zapolski
