Every cause has an effect. Every effect has a cause. We need to think about things more and think in terms of cause and effect.
You might wake up with a headache and your immediate action is to go for a painkiller to get rid of it. There is no thought given to the cause of this headache – that the headache is an effect, the result of something. So instead of going for the painkiller, you could put a few drops of peppermint oil in your palm and rub your hands together and inhale. This will help and then sit with your journal and think and write about what caused your headache. Start at the physical level. Are you drinking enough fresh water? Are you getting enough exercise and fresh air? Did you eat too late? Is there enough fresh air circulating in your bedroom at night? Do you leave mobiles, computers and TVs outside of your bedroom? Did you have too much screen time the day before? Think what might have caused your headache at the physical level.
Then move onto the psychological level. Did you go to bed in an emotional state, with some issue unresolved? Were you watching violent or dramatic programmes before sleep? Is there something about today on your mind? Are you stressed, tense about something? Think about why you have this headache and then you can really look after it and learn from it and make the adjustments you need to make so that you don’t need to keep having headaches.
You may notice that you are feeling moody or in a low mood. Ask yourself why, what has caused this and write about it in your journal. Ask your Higher Self to help you to understand the cause of your feelings. This way you don’t need to be a victim of your emotions.
If you have a reaction to something or someone, if something upsets you, ask why, what is causing this upset and write about it. And remember that the cause of your upset is coming from your thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and interpretations. The other person or situation is the trigger but not the cause.
Start to think more in terms of cause and effect and see what you learn from this and how it helps your understanding and taking charge of yourself and what you experience
