Simple Hack to Feel Empowered

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to your Daily Mindfulness, in today's session, I'm going to share a simple hack you can use to feel more empowered, and it has to do with the questions you ask yourself. Whether you realize it or not, and you're always asking yourself questions, often, subconsciously. Is this safe? How long is this going to last? Will they like me? As I said, this is often happening in the background of our awareness. But an interesting thing happens when you ask your mind a question. It tries to find an answer.

And so if you ask the question, what's wrong with me?Your mind will start searching and chances are, it'll be able to find all sorts of stuff to tell you why there's something wrong with you. But similarly, if you ask the question, what's right with me? Well, your mind is going to start searching for the answers to that question. All the things that are right with you. For this reason, questions ended up creating the running narrative in our minds. And if we want to feel more empowered, we have to ask more empowering questions.

So my invitation to you today is think of something difficult that you're going through, and then notice what sort of questions are you asking yourself? Are they questions like: How long is this going to last? Why is this happening to me? Why does everything go wrong for me? And then see if you could ask more empowering questions. Perhaps, how can this be a learning experience? How can I use this as an opportunity to grow? What strengths can I pull on to help me thrive in this difficult situation? When you ask empowering questions, you get empowering answers. Thank you for your practice. I'll talk to you in the meditation and take care.
