Negative Thought Patterns Your bad habit. You know why it’s bad for you. But that’s about all you know.

You have no idea when it turned into a part of your identity; a tendency requiring as little thought as your heartbeat. And clearly, you don’t know why you just. can’t. stop!

You’ve lost all faith in your ability to handle the situation. So you try to outsource that job.

Meal replacement shakes. The patch. There are all kinds of “shortcuts” on the market.

The problem is, changing your negative patterns can’t be outsourced. It’s an inside job. So what exactly do you have to do to kick this habit for life?

Narrate your negative thought patterns.

Habits operate under the unconscious mind. By narrating your bad habits, you shift into self-awareness where you find the insight and intuition you need to rewire your brain away from destructive patterns.

So how do you go about the narration process? It’s simple.

Report your actions, sensations, and emotions to your higher self. Here’s an example for you. An excerpt, from the sugar diaries:

“I’m considering eating a third nutella sandwich right now. My stomach is in knots. I’m pissed that I can’t control myself. But here I am. Laying it on thick. Feeling like I should do better.”

At first, you’ll find yourself wanting to cover your ears. You’ve been avoiding confrontation with your bad habit for as long as you’ve had it. Expect to uncover guilt, frustration, depression. Let them pass. It gets easier.

A few weeks later, unconditional love will set in. By now, you will have released your emotions. The fog will have lifted. Although your habit persists, you will have loosened its deathly grip.

Eventually, you’ll shift from narrating your negative habits to being the author of your happiness, health and freedom.
