Do Self-Help Books Really Work?

The book for this project is called: My Cause Miracles By: Gabrielle Bernstein

This is a 40-Day Guidebook Of Subtle Shifts For Radical Change And Unlimited Happiness.

From the Course’s perspective, if kindness created you, then being unkind disconnects you from your truth. When we witness our unkind thoughts and actions, we know we’re not connected to the truthful state from which we came. Though you may perceive yourself as a kind person, one unkind thought or actions knocks you out of your alignment to love.

Even the kindest people judge and attack others in their minds. Unless you’re an enlightened master, it's likely that no matter how hard you try to be kind, the ego will sneak in somewhere. That’s fine. Now that you’re on the miracle-minded path, your subtle shifts will awaken your awareness of when you can grow and learn. This evening’s exercise will do just that:

  1. Make a list of the ways you have been unkind this week. Whether though your thoughts or actions, how have you disconnected from your truth?
  2. Take a moment to reflect on the list and describe in your journal how it feels to be unkind.
  3. The final step is to forgive yourself for your unkind thought and actions. Say the following prayer out loud:

You can take these three steps into your day-to-day life. Each time you witness yourself being unkind, take a moment to reflect on how it makes you feel-and then immediately forgive yourself. By continuously acknowledging your unkind ego behavior, you will weaken the bad habit and transcend the ego’s need to judge.

I have to confess that I do try very hard to be kind to everyone that being said there are a few people that just the sight of them puts me in a foul mood. What that tells me is that I have to work even harder to show them kindness.

I do not like the feeling that comes over me when I have unkind thoughts towards others as I know that I am not made that way. I tend to try and see good in everyone no matter what. For me personally I think this exercise will help me to stop and really put an effort into being kind to these few people.

I like the prayer and I did say it out loud and it did make me feel better about my thoughts towards others as well as the thoughts that I hold about myself.

Lets see what tomorrow brings us.
