Weekly Positive Challenge: Clearing those pesky Problems

8 Comments

Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.” — M. Scott Peck

We all have to admit, that we all have problems and issues in our lives we are all trying to work through. Sometimes those problems eat away at our soul and render us lifeless in the process if we let them. But if you are living from your heart, you ‘Know’ at some point that ‘enough is enough’. There is just so much control you can allow your problem over you…at some point you need to put an end to it.

Lets put an end to and clear many of those pesky problems NOW!

This weeks positive challenge is a rather interesting one. Not only will it help you prioritize which problem needs your focus immediately, but it will also empower you to be more YOU.

Your Positive Challenge this week is:

  1. Notice at what point in your day or in a situation are you completely uncomfortable-physically, emotionally, spiritually uncomfortable.
  2. Once you have made a note of these points in your day or the situation in your life, then tell yourself this positive affirmation when you feel that uncomfortable feeling coming up : “I am in complete control. Nothing except the Divine has control over me. I am calm and problem free.” Say this affirmation 5 times while in the uncomfortable situation.

Why is this a challenge? Because noticing that you are IN a problem is half the battle won. Many times we go about our days wondering whats wrong and how to solve whats going on around us. But, we fail to acknowledge our SELF thats suffocating under the pressure of the problem.

This problem noticing and affirming challenge will help you to:

  • think more clearly
  • focus on the positive
  • put YOU in control, not your problem
  • solve any problematic or uncomfortable situation with calm ease
  • solutions will ‘come’ to you naturally

So go ahead and start today!

Don’t be afraid to open your box of problems and sow in a few calm, happy seeds :)

Have a beautiful weekend everyone and bust those pesky problems at the roots. We all deserve positively happy living!

I’ll be back Tuesday with the 3rd part of the heart opening “happy relationships series” of articles.

  1. At most I do not believe any deities exist and at least I believe if they do exist they have no relevance in my life. So I will drop the second sentence in your affirmation and go with the other two as they are very close to the affirmations I am using now.

    As I think so I am. I take refuge in right thoughts, speech, and actions. I honor mindfulness, peace, joy, and love.

  2. Zeenat,
    You’re so right. Many times we’re so busy and distracted we only notice that we feel a vague sense of discomfort. This is what happens to me quite often. I have to stop and close my eyes and reconnect to my body. When I do this and take a few deep breaths I’ll then realize what exactly is the matter. Thank you for writing this post. It’s so timely for me.

  3. I Love it!

    By *not* following one of your links I have kept myself *calm*.

    Thanks for:

    “I am in complete control. Nothing except the Divine has control over me. I am calm and problem free.”

    When the shit hits the fan I’ll say it 20 times!

    Thanks Z!

  4. Hi Zeenat,
    I think that part A–noticing you have a “problem”–is key in processing. And affirmations are extremely transformative..when we redirect our thoughts to positive, we draw to us positive..and action seems almost effortless when it is born from gratitude:)

  5. Beautiful Zeenat! What a wonderful, empowering post! I’m so glad you didn’t just write about problems, but instead gave a way to begin breathing air into them. Spaciousness = freedom. Like you said, we all have problems. Some days, they seem easy to just float through, and other days it seems like we bear the weight of the world on our shoulders.

    As Richard Bach said, every problem has a gift for us in its hands. I’ve certainly experienced that truth, yet it doesn’t make transcending the problem time any easier.

    That being said, I wouldn’t be who I am without the challenges that have shaped me.

    Wishing you love, joy, glittery and rainbows, beautiful friend!

  6. Hi, Zeenat. Thanks for the great challenge! I love your affirmation. The only thing I would want to change is that I solve challenges with ease and peace. My subconscious mind may balk if I suggest to it that I am problem free when I actually have some challenges before me. I have a couple challenges waiting to be solved for me this week, so I’ll be applying your post :)

  7. Zeenat,

    Problems just do not go away, we need to work on them is so true. Many times, we are so busy in daily life to really notice good things in our own life before we complain.

    I read one poem/story once that has changed the way I think: It said ” I complained about my job, until I saw person who was unemployed, I complained that I had no shoes until I saw a person who had no legs”

    We have lot of good things going, if only we looked. Very timely read for me, as I needed to read this today. Thanks.

  8. Hi Zeenat…

    You’re right, recognising you have a problem is half the battle. Figuring out what you can learn from it is the other half, and usually when both these halves are complete the problem seems less problematic and the healing starts.

    Great post!
    Love & Warmth
