When I talk about day dreams, I’m not only referring to your typical castles-in-the-air type daydream. I’m also including day time dream work which includes traditional daydreaming, but is more purposeful and involves cooperation with Holy Spirit.
The pathway I took out of clinical depression into wholeness and health was a long journey. It gave me time to develop a the most productive method to help you overcome any poor thought habit, whether it is anxiety, fear, depression, anger, grief, victimization, you name it. Yes, you know the one. Even the one bothering you right now.
I am not a psychologist or psychiatrist, so obviously I will never dispense a diagnosis or clinical advice. I simply want to welcome you to follow the path I’ve walked. God showed me a way to be closer to him and gain freedom from the negative thoughts and habits that had completely wrecked my life. My psychiatrist’s medication and my therapist’s counseling didn’t help me. I had no other hope. It took time, but I thank God I found complete healing in Jesus.
If you’ve tried, you already know we can’t just stop negative thoughts. If you haven’t tried, you can find out right now. Just do this simple task:
Don’t think about pink elephant ballerinas for the next 30 seconds.
OOPS! You had to think of them in order to try not to think of them, right? You probably even visualized an image when you tried not to think of them. Every negative thought gains power like that. Resisting them empowers them. In fact, if any of you were successful with that task, it’s because you already know the principle to renew your mind.
With God’s help, we can learn to replace negative thoughts with his Truth. God’s omniscient point of view is perfect and his loving opinion is accurate. Your limited view is skewed, especially if it’s making you anxious or depressed. Replacing your false truth with God’s true truth is the pathway to healing your mind.
