Chaos

Let’s imagine that your day seems to be getting worse with every ticking minute. It could be that since you got out of bed, everything seems to be working against you. Maybe the dog is sick, you aren’t feeling well yourself, you’ve called in sick to rest if you are employed, or canceled all your day’s appointments if you are self-employed. Let’s further imagine that all the major appliances in your house stop functioning due to an electric mishap, and you have to deal with your homeowners’ insurance company’s bureaucracy to get things fixed. Let’s also imagine that you had a horrible fight with your partner, your kids are sick, and a creditor made a mistake and double charged your account. Hence, you are short on cash. To make things worse, as you pull it together to go out of the house and solve some of these challenges, you discover that you have a flat tire; and you have absolutely no idea how to change a flat tire.

What do you do??

These are days that test our patience and force us to go within and retrieve our emotional and intellectual weapons. However, the great news is that no matter how bad the day seems, there is a part of you that remains untouched by the situation. That part, my friend, is your mind. You can use your mind to emotionally and mentally rise above any challenges regardless of how bad they seem: and this brings me to the 5 things you can do to deal with a chaotic day.

  1. Slow down.

This means that take your time as you resolve every issue, one after another without trying to chunk them up. Make a to-do list as things to do begin presenting themselves. Focus on one thing at a time. This will help you stay on top of the issues that are resolved, and the ones that need more time or resources.  A to-do list also has a way of making us feel accomplished as we mark off every task that we finish.

  1. Remember to Breathe.

    Breathe

By deep breathing you relax, which then gives you the clarity to deal with the issues you have at hand.

  1. Put on soothing music.

Let soothing or relaxing music play in the background, and your brain will start picking up on the musical notes which will then help you relax.

  1. Drink a lot of water.

The benefits of drinking water, especially in stressful situations, are obvious. Drinking a lot of water will keep you hydrated, focused and energetic.

  1. Don’t call anyone to tell them what you are going through.

When you call your friends or loved ones and start telling them what you are going through, firstly, you are wasting time. Secondly, they might make things feel worse for you. Therefore, trust yourself and know that you have the mental and emotional resources within you to solve the chaos. The only exception is if you are calling for professional help. As a matter of fact, if you receive a call amidst the chaos, don’t engage them, ask to call them back.

Remember, there is nothing out of yourself that has the power to disorient you. As long as you are still conscious, you can still tap into your internal resources to resolve any challenges. Furthermore, nothing lasts forever. Maintain your calm. Don’t worry. Everything will soon get back to normal. And even if it doesn’t, you have the human spirit that is always unconditionally fired up with the powers of perseverance, patience, and faith.  

“A calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence; that’s very important for good health.” Dalai Lama

Powerful Affirmations to Reconnect to Your True Self:


These affirmations are taken from; “The Three Magic Words,” a book by US Anderson. I have edited and re-arranged the words to match our times.

Saying these affirmations every morning, will grant you a sense of faith and a firm re-connection to the kingdom of God that dwells with in you. Remember that you are not, and will never be “alone.”

 

I am pure in spirit; I have always been, and will always be.
Inside me is a place of confidence, quietness and security: a place where all things are known and understood. This place is the universal mind of God of which I am a part, and which responds to me when I ask of it. This universal mind of God knows the answers to all my problems. And even now, the answers are speeding their way to me. I needn’t struggle for them; I needn’t worry or strive for them. When the time comes, the answers will reveal themselves to me.
Today I surrender my problems to the universal mind of God. I let go of them with confidence that the correct answers will return to me in due time.
Through the great law of attraction, everything that I need for my work and fulfillment comes to me. I ask, believe, and let go.
I take inspired action with impeccable focus.
I do things to make me feel good; knowing that in feeling good, I’m connecting to all the goodness there is.
I am patient, positive-minded and focused.
I know that all is well; because I’m guided in all my actions.
I focus on the good things I have in my life; and practice gratitude all day long.
I let go of any resistance; and completely surrender myself to the kingdom of God that dwells within me.
