Want to kick a habit or stop a behavior?
Our daily habits are shaped by the mental voice we listen too. If we listen to the voice of the ego mind consistently, our behaviors and habits will reflect this. When we are listening to the quieter voice of our higher mind, we take on habits that are supportive, healthy, and keep us moving forward in a positive direction. So if you are unsure which mind you are taking instructions and directions from, check out your behaviors and habits.
If it's a behavior you would like to change, become aware of the mental dialog that pushes you to behave in that way. What does the mind say? What excuses does it use? What threats does it use? Write these down so you can be prepared for what it will use against you once you decide to change. Then have some of your own statements prepared to tell the mind when it tries to talk you out of doing something different. Write a few powerful "why" statements. Once written out, you may notice the excuses the mind uses, don't make much sense, or are illogical, because the ego mind is illogical.
All it takes is awareness and determination to focus and think on things that create habits that support you, instead of ones that serve to destroy you. The mind will tell you it's too hard to change. Don't listen to that one either. A.J.
