DAY 87: Dealing with the images in the mind (and in the news)

I came to the realisation that many of my fears are backed-up by images that got stored within my memory and that in specific situations these images are projected into my life, creating an anticipation within my mind of believing that I know what is going to happen next. These images that I am referring to come from the news and some movies that I watched throughout time but I never questioned as to why I kept these images, what was the fear that these images manifested and how I was accumulating all these fears within me. At the same time, I never questioned the conviction of the mind that those same episodes would occur in my life. I will give you an example: I was walking tonight from the library and there is this long road with trees from each side and some cars passing by once and a while. I hear a person walking behind me and I looked to see the person's look (as if a person's appearance defines them as to be 'good' or 'bad'). At this point there wasn’t an extensive fear however, from that moment on, I kept walking and images in my mind started to pop up, such as the image of being grabbed by the guy, the image of someone hidden behind the trees waiting to attack me, the image of a car stopping next to me to kidnap me and the image of me running away… all of these movies were happening in my mind only. One thing is to be aware of me and cautious, but why do I allow myself to believe in these images? The answer is the lack of communication and education about what we see and what we hear in the sources of information, I mean, we were never taught how to deal with the emotions that images and words are associated with in the news, we were never educated to forgive ourselves from all these ideas that limit us for the rest of our lives, we were never explained how we create these fears and how to clean ourselves from those same fears. There is no magic but there understanding, application and correction of the things that we accept and allow within ourselves and in our world.


I forgive myself for having accepted and allowed myself to participate in the energy of fear when I associated my reality of walking alone from the university to the idea of the news about a girl that disappeared on her way home.

I forgive myself for having accepted and allowed that an image took completely over of my reality as if there is no other possible outcome rather than a tragedy!

I forgive myself for not having accepted and allowed myself to stand stable within me when I am doing something new that I have no reference of doing in the past, such as being in a different city. I realise that my Life is my creation in real time and no images of the mind are required in this process, unless if I use the images to understand the patterns of fear and forgive the points the image open up within me.

I forgive myself for having accepted and allowed myself to be misdirected by the images of the mind that are not a guidance. I realise that these images are simply images captured from the media  and that it is my responsibility to recreate my present and future different from the problems that are already known.

Self-corrective Statements

When and as I see myself compromising my stability and compromising my ability to take decisions in the moment based on common sense, because I got influenced by an image of the mind, I stop and I breathe.

When and as I see the image of the future in my mind, I stop the image through breath (like bursting the bubble) until I am stable within me. I remind myself that this is an image and that this present moment is my opportunity to give me a new direction outside of the frame of my mind that can only reach knowledge and information but that is not necessarily the best for me.

I commit myself to investigate each and every single image that pop up in my mind, standing aware that the image is not me and that the thoughts of the mind are not to be taken as the truth.

I commit myself to recreate my present as that which I live for myself, based on the Principles of common sense, self-stability, self-trust, self-change. I realise that by stopping the images of the mind and being here in each breath I am able to see how I am creating this parallel scenario in my mind and therefore I am able of changing my attitude in the moment: instead of giving up into the "curiosity" of the image in the mind, I commit myself to give me the moment of application by not following the images of the mind and to recreate my existence for the best of me, which is also the best for the others, based on the principle of give as I would like to receive.
