As it goes, a wise man was speaking to his grandson …some say it was a Cherokee Indian and some say it was a Shaman, I say it was one in the same... and he told him, we have 2 wolves inside of us and there is a terrible battle between these two wolves. The two animals symbolizes the opposing forces we struggle with each and every day. One force is evil, anger, greed, arrogance, sadness and feels inferior. The representation of the imbalance of Ego. The other force is kindness, joy, love, hope, serenity, humility, compassion, and peace. The wise man went further to explain that these forces battle within each of us every day. The young boy asked which wolf will win the battle, the grandfather responded simply....“The one you feed will win.”
So WHICH Wolf are you feeding? Ask yourself, are you focusing on what’s good in your life OR are you letting toxic relationships, jealousy, fear and self-critical thoughts hold you back? Even if your life is a complete 💩-show, deciding to shift your focus on what you want it to do and be be will make it happen. I've witnessed it. We struggle with this every day be it subconsciously or consciously. It is the constant battle within. It is one thing to be aware of what is negatively impacting you and the world...and it is also another to change and create the world you/we live in. It starts in your heart and then with a thought. I have an affirmation that will help you center and focus on that. With that I share a affirmation I used to use a lot and now find myself going back to again:
"I am blessed & grateful to have peaceful and harmonious interactions with people, places, situations and things"
I think that affirmation covers it all! Momma didn't raise no fool! Feel free to modify that but definitely start it out with "I AM Blessed.." or "I AM GRATEFUL..." or use both. And upon waking or going to sleep, say this to yourself daily.
This was a story I actually wanted to share with you last year in August. I found this sitting amongst my drafts and totally forgot to share it with you. Life Much?! 🤦🏽♀️
