The power of our mind and imagination are incredibly strong. If we expect and anticipate feeling a certain way, it greatly increases the likelihood that we will make this our reality. What we imagine become a self fulfilling prophesy and this is how many phobias and anxieties are created and maintained.
Which is why I was very surprised yesterday to find the weather report predicting that we are going to feel ‘uncomfortable’ at night! Actually, I had a lovely night’s sleep – didn’t feel in the least bit uncomfortable. I do wonder how many people had prepared for, and experienced a difficult night’s sleep due to the what the media had told them.
Weather reporters: Just tell us the objective weather facts, not how you expect it to make us feel!!
