I Can Change

All this stuff that's going on at the Supreme Court this week is reminding me of something I wrote back in November.

I always thought it was the Buddha who said, "The only constant is change" but after researching a little further I came to find it was the Greek philosopher Heraclitus. Ok, so change might be constant, but that doesn't make it easy. I'm not suggesting we do it because it's fun, I'm suggesting we do it because it's good for our health.

Louise Hay recommends, "Let's use the affirmation, 'I am willing to change.' Repeat this often. 'I am willing to change. I am willing to change.' You can touch your throat as you say this. The throat is the energy center in the body where change takes place. By touching your throat, you are acknowledging you are in the process of changing. Be willing to allow the changes to happen when they come up in your life. Be aware that where you DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE is exactly the area where you NEED to change the most. 'I am willing to change.'" (Hay, 1984, 43).

If you can't see yourself touching your throat and saying "I am willing to change:" I'm with you. But LCD Soundsystem's song "I Can Change" gets stuck in my head ALL the time. And I do agree with Ms Hay's point that "The Universal Intelligence is always responding to your thoughts and words. Things will definitely begin to change as you make these statements."
