Are you a worrier? If so, your thoughts are like the goldfish, going round and round in circles, zapping your energy, slowing you down and limiting your choices.

Would you like  a simple way to jump out of the worry trap?

Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.

Abraham, 1998

The more you worry, the more time you spend thinking about unwanted things that might happen. If you’re unlucky worry visits you at night, when everything is more exaggerated, and the way out of the goldfish bowl seems nigh impossible. The more you feed your worry story, the more likely it is to manifest as your reality.

Worry is a low energy emotion – second to bottom on the Sedona scale – it sucks up your energy, depleting what’s available to keep you fit and healthy.

Worries are based on beliefs you hold. For example, when I worry that my knee is going to take six months to heal, I’ve bought into the belief it will take six months to heal, and I’ve closed myself off to the possibility of faster healing.

Meet Justin IPOV

Justin IPOV stands for ‘just an interesting point of view’! One of the 10 ‘commandments’ of Access Consciousness is that everything is just an interesting point of view. If whatever is worrying you is just an interesting point of view, it means you no longer identify with the point of view – you don’t align or agree with it, nor do you resist it or react to it, instead of being fixed it becomes neutral and it loses its hold on you.

Maybe that sounds a little confusing – many Access tools do, as they don’t make cognitive sense! If we could figure these things out in our mind, wouldn’t we have done so long ago?

Put Justin IPOV to the test…

Bring to mind something that’s worrying you, and as you think about it, stop as soon as you notice a belief you have. For example: this will never change, it runs in our family,   Now say to yourself, out loud or in your head:

Interesting point of view, I have that point of view.

Interesting point of view, I have that point of view.

Interesting point of view, I have that point of view.

Now check back, and see what’s happened to your belief. If there’s still some left, repeating IPOV some more times until that belief has gone.

If your worry persists, you have more beliefs to dissolve, so keep going with IPOV each time you become aware of a belief you hold. As with any new tool, you’ll need to be persistent at first, until IPOV becomes a habit.

As you get into the habit of making the beliefs behind your worries interesting points of view, your blinkers fall away, and you open up to new possibilities and choices.

What else is possible?
