Do you find yourself fretting over the one percent of a situation that is beyond your control while overlooking the ninety-nine percent that is? For most, stress in some form is the main problem affecting the quality of your life. Sadly, as long as you see stress as an externally based problem, you will never know that it is the way in which you allow it to affect you that is the real reason you are exhausted, over-reactive, irritable, and often overwhelmed!

Most stress related issues stem from a lack of understanding about why stress affects us so negatively. Are you ready for an insight that will forever change the way you relate to every kind of stress? Here is the most important clue: Once you react improperly to stress in any form it begins to control you. How?

The key factor behind why we succumb to stress has mainly to do with one very significant emotion: "resentment.” When resentment irritation, or anger are the underlying emotions that stimulate your reactions to stress, you become primed to fall into a trap that leaves you in a counter-intuitive state of mind.

The secret of total mastery over stress is actually very simple: If you will mentally and emotionally step back for just a split second and observe your response to any form of stress, the possibility of shifting the polarity from negative to positive exists in that very moment.

Sadly, without understanding what stress actually is, there is no way you can begin to properly remedy what it does to us. We typically attempt to do whatever it takes to cope. We medicate ourselves or escape into various activities in order to avoid facing the painful truth that shows itself as anxiety, depression, and countless uncomfortable feelings.

Escape, however, only temporarily diverts us from struggling with stress and sets us on a course that leads to progressively much worse conditions. The definition of disease taken from the Random House Unabridged Dictionary includes these as synonyms: “morbidity, complaint, derangement, distemper, indisposition, infirmity, disorder, and malady.” These synonyms show that disease is just that, dis-ease. When the mind is in a morbid state and the attitude is full of conflict, disease is born.

This is the unseen result of being infected by ubiquitous but undetected negative energy. Having been affected to a certain degree our entire lives, it’s no wonder we feel overwhelmed and become ill. These many conditions are what have been termed “the effects of stress.” Some people thrive on being angry, upset and irritated because there is energy that comes from those emotions. But this energy is from the wrong source.

Deriving the energy to function from the wrong source creates a negative counter-self. It is a fact that once you have become upset, you lose a portion of your original, authentic identity and become an extension of whatever, or whoever upsets you. At this point, there is a lingering, residual imprint of the experience and it typically carries with it some degree of anxiety. There is also a sense that something precious has been lost – the ability to be at peace because you have become the effect of an external cause.

All of my discussions will help you see more clearly and enhance your own innate ability to stop being the effect of a cause, and empower you to become aware of a new “objective” way to view all challenge and pressure.
