Mind Jail: Are You Creating Your Own Hell?
By: Jason Chaussee, Holistic Trauma Expert, Certified-Master Transformational Coach & Spiritual Teacher
We’re trapped inside our own beliefs and attitudes. If you think life is hell, then it is hell. We create our own reality.
When all our thoughts are negative and we only see the bad, we have trapped ourselves inside a damaging destructive Mind Jail.
Mind Jail might include feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, abandonment. We might feel overwhelmed, out of control, pushed around. We feel like no matter what we do, it will all go wrong.
Under all the overwhelming emotions, we forget that we have a choice. It happens to the best of us.
World famous escape artist Harry Houdini was once asked to break out of a jail cell in the most modern penitentiary at the time.
While the press waited outside, Houdini worked hard trying to pick the lock. 10 minutes went by, then 20, and then 30 minutes. He was very agitated, sweating profusely, and embarrassed. He was a former locksmith so in his mind, he should have been able to quickly pick the lock and escape.
With a sigh of frustration and an overwhelming feeling of helplessness, Houdini leaned against the door… and to his surprise, it opened! They had forgotten to lock to cell.
A simple solution was right in front of him if he had opened his mind and stopped fixating on the one thought of unlock, unlock, unlock.
We are often trapped in our own minds, fixated on negative thoughts that can cause feelings of despair or debilitating anxiety.
We have to make a conscious decision to step away from the negativity. Look for the possibilities. Look for positive options.
We may not be in a jail cell like Houdini, but we are the warden of our own mind. We need to break free from self-imposed Mind Jail that prevents us from enthusiastically pursing joy.
