You know, in addition to choosing better feeling thoughts, I would also look boldly at how you've been at cause in creating now as it is -- what choices have you made both consciously and unconsciously that has life occurring the way it does now?
I was just thinking about my hernias, when they were first diagnosed, I was very WTF? about the whole thing? How did I create this? And when I looked for the root cause, I saw that for the entire year or so before my diagnosis, I had been springing leaks all over the place -- there were "holes" at the core of my life: my car, my apartment, my bank account all seemed to have holes in them that I left unrepaired and leaking.
And going back even further, I had a hole in my relationship with Danger Man -- a "rip" that occurred that I didn't take care of right away, but hoped it would take care of itself. Right around the time when the Danger Man rip happened, that was when I had the very first tiny symptoms of what were the first of the hernias, and I didn't do anything to repair those, either.
So eventually, the "symptoms" of the holes in my life kept getting more and more dire until the learnings got through my thick skull, and I did what it took to heal those holes, a little at a time, and finally when all those other little holes were repaired, *POOF!* the money for my surgery showed up out of the blue -- completely unexpected, out of thin air. It was one of those blue feather moments.
