The story of the two wolves

It basically teaches us that negative thinking is something quite normal.
However, we should never underestimate how dangerous it can be to foster negative internal dialogue.
Negative thoughts can overwhelm our positive thoughts, destroying all good thoughts on their path.
The two wolves, a Native American story that will change your life
*The legend says:
An old Indian chief Cherokee used a fable with two wolves to teach life to his grandson.
He began, "It's a terrible fight that happens between two wolves. One is bad, it is only anger, envy, sadness, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, sense of superiority and ego. "
While the other wolf, he says, "is good, and is only joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, goodness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. "
According to the Indian chief, this internal battle is experienced by each one of us on this earth, "This terrible fight is also happening in you, and inside each one. "
The little son asked," Grandfather, which wolf will win both? "
The old Cherokee simply smiled and replied," The one you feed. "
What is in your consciousness is decisive; you reap what you sow
To create a beautiful indoor environment, you must become the guardian of your mind. Changing mental habits and inner dialogue is not an easy task. A conscious mind arbiter is the secret to happiness: only allow the good positive sources that serve you.
In fact, without constant conscious reflection, you can unconsciously create a process of unhealthy thoughts.
Maintaining stressors and anything that causes anger does not promote your mental well-being. In fact, the constant mental saturation of "junk" will quickly transform and rewire your mind, for the worse.
Stop this cycle now. You have the power to change the quality of your consciousness.
Rewiring your inner dialogue: a mental detox
Note all the "mental junk" you consume (which includes all the material that feeds your "bad" wolf). By writing them you will become aware of your habits and be able to identify aspects of your life that do not serve you.
For every thing, try to eliminate it or minimize it for two weeks. Check your inner dialogue often. Has he changed?
Is the "good" wolf gaining ground?
This simple mental cleansing reflects the story of the two wolves. By honoring and respecting the power of negative thinking processes, you are able to strategically win the hard battle of mental well-being.
