Thought Adjuster: “You have heard the expression ‘to be bent out of shape.’ It indeed depicts well how people feel when they are undergoing some emotional storms. They feel like a tree tossed around by strong emotional winds. They sense they are losing ground — their sense of inner peace.

“Indeed, quite frequently during your days your thoughts, the words of others or current events bring to your being some emotional discomfort. If you do not live with awareness, they can get the better of you, confuse you and destabilize you. You let them wreak havoc with your emotional wellbeing and feel like a leaf, powerlessly tossed around by the winds of these moody emotions.

“Yet, if you see them for the tricksters they are, you will be able to disempower these subtle attackers and prevent them from ‘bending you out of shape.’ The questions to ask yourself are: ‘In which emotional shape am I?’ ‘Am I strong and resilient?’ or ‘Is my emotional immune system weak?’ If you answer ‘yes’ to the last question, the next question to ask is ‘What am I going to do about it?’

“The best way to address unsettling emotions is to look for their antidote. Indeed, each emotion can be dealt with by activating its positive nemesis. Gratitude, for instance, will disarm depression, as it has an emotional black belt.

“Rather than allowing lower emotions to sneak their way into your being and call the shots, remember that you are the one in charge of yourself. By your free will choices, you can claim the upper hand in these emotional battles. Surely, some of them are brutal, yet, you are equipped to deal with them. Do not allow them to knock you out! Stay on your feet by being on the alert and your awareness will be your best ally.

“Monitor your thoughts and feelings. Which one do you feed? Which do you starve? By using your discernment and your inner guidance, you can calm the inner storms and cast anchor in welcoming harbors.”
