Are you worrying about the fact that you worry too much?? What does worry create anyway? More worry and blow that for a lark!

One of the Reiki sayings is ‘Just for today I will not worry’. I was pondering whilst baking this morning on the things we worry about and the short answer is everything.

Worry begets yet more worry.

I have yet to see a chicken, headless or otherwise, racing around in circles as they can always been seen sleeping or pottering about pecking the ground in a determined fashion.

I look across and see our ‘boys’ slumbering peacefully, resting in the sure and certain knowledge that they will have a walk later. If I forget to do this then they will follow me around till I get the message.

Re-arranging that spreadsheet in an impressive fashion won’t change the fact that you are short on funds for paying the bills. So rather than focussing on the lack of finance, stop the worry and talk to trusted friends as a sounding board for ideas or let your mind float free and the answers on how to plug the gap will come. Trust.

If friends do not ‘get’ what you are experimenting with then go ‘within’ and listen to your inner voice. You do not need other folks worries and fears sparking your own.

Try different things; keep ‘sploring’ and evaluating and hang onto what feels right and if it’s right then it will have an energy all of it’s own.

If you worry about something constantly then the outcome will be the one you most fear.

Worry, like perfectionism, can kill the joy in a moment.

Try not to beat yourself up when things don’t go quite to plan or the outcome is not as expected; you tried and nothing is lost in trying. Stopping for a few minutes to pat yourself on the back for trying is a kind thing to do and worrying about whether to try again will stop you in your tracks.

Having a plan is good (I have a sofa coming for planning purposes) but being prepared to evaluate, adjust and change will be the plan’s life blood.

Every time a worry crosses your mind today, pause and try to adjust your thinking. Changing thoughts will change the outcome and allow room for new energy and magic to flow.
