PONDER on THIS for Thursday, January 28th, 2010 by Justine Toms in SMALL PLEASURES, FINDING GRACE IN A CHAOTIC WORLD

“At least once a year I have a psychic checkup, and at my last visit my psychic doctor gave me a wonderful game to play when I get into those negative loops. It’s called, the “Wouldn’t It Be Wonderful?” game and it goes like this: When you find yourself stuck, looping around and around a problem, ask yourself, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if…” Then play around with some fabulous, even outlandish scenarios. For example…wouldn’t it be wonderful if Jews, Muslims, and Christians in the Middle East all laid down their weapons and began to live in peace with one another? Wow, my imagination really goes wild with that possibility!

When you play this game you’ll notice it not only benefits your mind, but your whole body starts to relax as you engage all kinds of fun and amazing possibilities. It is especially good for your adrenal glands, which produce three major classes of hormones that are essential for your day-to-day ability to handle stress…So next time you wake up in the middle of the night with anxieties and worries, remember to turn on your light by asking yourself, Wouldn’t it be wonderful if…?”

Justine Toms, in “Small Pleasures, Finding Grace in a Chaotic World”
