I began my day in a struggle between berating myself for making a mistake and regretting my choices. I’m left with confusing thoughts.
Did I make that choice to sabotage myself or was it simply human error? Is there such a thing as human error, if we knew better than to repeat an action that we’ve done so many times before? Was it really an error? Was I being obtuse? Did I have a choice, and did I override my good sense? Why didn’t I know better?
This tendency to ask myself endless questions and to keep reviewing the past reveals and reflects an ultra-sensitive’s thought process. It’s a mental, as well as an emotional, process of weighing and balancing ourselves on all four experience levels.
1. Our physical experiences: what we do.
2. Our emotional experiences: what we feel.
3. Our mental experiences: what we think.
4. Our spiritual experiences: what we perceive.
Ultras weigh and balance everything as we move through life. We can exhaust ourselves with alternate possibilities. When this happens, it helps if I limit my focus to the next hour of my day.
Ultra-sensitives have the ability (and tendency) to consider and evaluate the next 8 hours on a constant basis. It is common in Sensitives and is usually too much to think about and plan to the degree and depth we expect.
EXERCISE: Next time you notice your mind going on about things that are not within your control, try to concentrate on a physical world chore for about 20 minutes. A chore: clean out a messy drawer, straighten or organize an area of your home or office, or do 10-20 minutes of exercise. All these things will help you to stop trying to control things that are not within your control.
