Worry is a Prayer for Chaos

In her book Miracles Now, Gabrielle Bernstein explains how worry is a prayer for chaos. Oh how true. Nothing good comes from worry.

But worry is a natural human emotion, so how can we avoid it? Is there a button to shut it off?

Yes, there actually is. Gabby suggests simply noticing the thought of worry and staring down at your nose. Just that simple action will take your attention away from the worry. Then you can get to thinking about something more positive and productive.

I use a different tactic. I acknowledge the thought and dismiss it by saying something like, "Thank you. I am a warrior of light, and I say no to this thought."

I dare you to try this at home!
