That is their job you know. 😉 Probably no one has told you or ‘taught you’ in a regularly acceptable place for this, such as a school……yet.
A thought’s purpose is to inform us. Our requirement is that we ‘read’ them, and take action accordingly, so that they can naturally leave us.
A recurring thought is reminding of something that needs attention.
Take your commanding role of your thoughts, as is your birthright.
Self mastery is all that is required, as you learn of yourself and of how to be an effective human, as is your design.
Ask each thought as it arises ‘What can I learn from you?’ or ‘What do I still need to do?’
Then do it, or if it is not appropriate at that time if you are at work/study/in bed/somewhere else, make a note of what you will do.
Then, let the thought go. Be commanding. Be assertive. Be the manager/mistress of all your cells AS IS YOUR DESIGN.
You can say out loud :thank you, and I let you go, as that is all I need. or then just “Let it go” when you become more practiced.
If it recurs one more time, ask your Self again : “What do I need to learn from this? What do I need to do?” only because you are learning and may have missed something.
When you use the thought as is its role, when you take command and take action, or note it down for later, IT CAN LEAVE you.
However, your Self does need to be able to trust your Self. Your human abilities require you to follow through, as they function ‘on automatic’ to best serve you in your current state.
Taking control of all aspects of yourself requires Integrity, or Being Of Your Word.
If you are not able to trust your Self – or haven’t trained yourself, your Guides and the Universe – to be able to rely on you yet, your thoughts are serving you better if they continue to come to you repeatedly when you have a quiet moment to notice them. This is your default setting.
If there is no change to this in place yet, how do they know if you may – or may not – do anything with them?
Their job is to inform and they can only do their ‘roll along on that conveyor belt of the mind’ thang, 😉 until you have mastered it otherwise!
When we control our thoughts we allow space for all else that we are, and YOU WILL be totally mind blown! 😀
I cannot emphasize or rave enough about the incredible life improvements that are brought with thought control! 🙂
