Don't make your mind up...

I am day three into a new set of habits. It's not going well. Every day, since I started my resolve,  I have had a set-back. Just now, I went back to the very old habit I swear I am done with. How can this happen when my mind is made up to change?

Ah! That's the issue. I made my mind up, but I ignored my heart. My mind is tricky. It thinks it knows, that it is in charge. As long as I believe that, I will fail my attempts at change.

Our minds have no influence over our hearts. It is our hearts that influence our minds.  If we want to commit to new habits, to changes in the ways we behave, think or react, then we have to start with our soul.

When we start with our heart, first of all, we know what it is we want to affect within us. When we go within, we will know where we need to go, what we need to do, who we need to love and the corresponding action or new habits to take on. This raises our level of awareness to pick up signs, messages, confirmation, new possibilities and supportive synchronistic experiences. In other words, tackling on new habits is not so hard because the habit stemmed from our truth and not from what we or others think is the right thing to do. When we start at the level of our soul, the Universe collaborates and the ego settles down. Then we flow in a new direction, strengthened and supported in our new choices.

Today is a good day to let go of the habits you are struggling with and take a moment to listen to your heart. Make your heart up. Let it be the power behind your mind.
