10 Ways Over-Thinking Destroys Your Happiness

Have you ever been stuck over-thinking something that happened or something you think will happen only to get your knickers in a bunch? I know I have! This over-thinking thing keeps most of us stuck. It keeps us rooted in fear, uncertainty, and doubt. It’s a major contributor to the FUD factor and a huge reason why most people can’t find their happy.

I don’t know about you, but my over-thinking habit robbed me of my own happiness and joy. If I could put my finger on it, I’d say the trigger for breaking up with this soul-sucking, life-leeching habit over 10 years ago was when I decided I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I had headaches, IBS, and that God awful pit in my stomach that never seemed to go away.

To make matters worse, I was in a toxic relationship (even though I didn’t know it at the time) that made my over-thinking monkey mind spin out of control. I was on my own crazy-go-round 24/7. When life as I knew it ended after my first marriage imploded, I gave up soda, coffee, and over-thinking. (For a while, I gave up men, but that’s another story!)

Here are 10 ways over-thinking destroys your happiness. Leave a comment and let me know if you can think of other ways over-thinking is a buzz kill.

  1. Over-thinking a problem will keep any problem a problem, which will keep you stuck inside the same problem until you quit thinking about it.
  2. Over-thinking a situation will make the situation worse in direct proportion to the time and energy you spend over-thinking it.
  3. Over-thinking anything prevents your creative problem solving skills from bubbling up.
  4. Over-thinking makes you worry, and worry is nothing more than your imagination concocting a negative future state.
  5. Over-thinking is a time suck — you’re so busy in a negative future state or negative past situation (which you can’t change) that you completely forget about right here right now.
  6. Over-thinking robs you of energy that could be better focused on things that are worthy of your attention.
  7. Over-thinking leads you to second guessing yourself and creates self-doubt.
  8. Over-thinking is a TNT drama that occurs on a stage, inside your head, where you are the director, producer, actor, actress, supporting cast, key grip, sound manager, and executive assistant to the executive assistant of the casting director.
  9. Over-thinking fabricates problems and gory “what if” horror stories.
  10. Over-thinking creates heightened feelings of anger, resentment, jealousy, fear, doubt, indecision, confusion, etc., as if whatever you are over-thinking is happening in real life.

When you break up with over-thinking it’s like writing your own “get out of jail free” card. It doesn’t cost you anything to end your relationship with the drama inside your head. You can decide to focus on things in the present that are deserving of your time and attention whenever you choose. The here and now is calling… will you answer?

Turn the Dial To Accessing, Allowing & Releasing

Salutations! & Welcome! My Beautiful Beings of Light. The moments have whizzed by and again it is time for the monthly message.

The Creator is sending each of you a mighty Celestial Cyber Hug. Close your eyes and just allow yourself permission to feel the love wave as it washes over your Essence. Perhaps your physical body may feel warm and tingly but your Celestial Bodies will know without a doubt that you have been given the most glorious Creator Hug that you will ever remember receiving.

Physical time may feel like it is whizzing out of control within most of your moments now. It is best to work with your inner self to help stabilize the overwhelm that this sensation may be sending to your body, pushing it into overdrive.

You can help yourself come back into center and balance if you place your hands on your Solar Plexus and close your eyes. Simply bring your mind to your Solar Plexus, breathing deeply and mentally ask it to calm down. Just keep your eyes closed for another minute or two and feel the peace descend upon your physical body.

You may be feeling as though this is a tiny lull before the storm or next drama event within the Earth Plane, My Beloveds.  Take these small breather moments and learn to turn the dial to accessing, allowing and releasing to provide you with the information that you need to move forward on your Spiritual path.

My Beloveds you will constantly be clearing and releasing all those things that no longer serve your highest good. Do your clearing work daily as you lay your head down at night, right before falling asleep. Don’t take the debris that has accumulated during the day into your dream state or allow it to be kept in your physical body tissues.

If something major occurs in your day you can release it right then and there, no need to even drag those doom and gloom moments another second further. All that is required is for you to quiet your mind, give sincere intent to clear it and for a moment close your eyes, place your hands on your Solar Plexus. Through a small prayer mentally say to your Angels, Spirit Guides or The Creator, “ I am releasing to you now, I am releasing to you now, I am releasing to you now, and so it is.” Let it go My Beloveds and hand it off to those that truly can help you the most.

It is the moment in NOW where it is of utmost importance, My Divine Beings of Grace, to Access your Spiritual Support Staff, Allow your Spiritual Support Staff to assist you and Release your concerns or issues to your Spiritual Support Staff.

It is nice to also share your gratitude and the tender beautiful moments as well with your Spiritual Support Staff. This is part your Spiritual family and they provide Unconditional Unwavering Love for you and they are always there to help you walk through your life from moment to moment.

Allow this Messenger to take you on a mediation journey to help you dial in and learn to access, allow and release
