How our interpretation of experiences effects our health

Defining an outcome can reduce our energetic health.

There is an interesting behavior humans have picked up quite nicely. It’s an addiction to functioning within limited parameters influenced upon us by “labeling” our experiences.

We have a game, a business of getting people excited over labels. Come get “this”. Watch out for “that”, Have you heard of “those”.  Do you think she has “these”. It really is the only way we can function in some sort of orderly manner, right?

This behavior, however, has a subtle but strong influence in limiting our abilities, even weakening our immune system. Imagine this; when we agree something is one way, we limit any other possibility. Not until we see a sign of it being different will we change our previous label of the experience.

The deeper insight to this is that labels close the mind. People will label a disease and begin to imagine grim outcomes. They put a great amount of energy into seeing things as they have been labeled for decades .  

Here is where I want to focus less on the theory  “happy thoughts create healthy body”, and more on the simple idea that there may be another way.  What happens when we release all the labels?  We create new ideas,  create ourselves as we choose in the moment.

Do this exercise; imagine the label of some disease that you believe as true. imagine you are experiencing the same symptoms as one does from this “disease”. Now imagine that there is no “label” to this experience you are having and no medical explanation. You are feeling strange and have no idea why you are feeling this way. It is an experience for you and only you. No one has anything even closely related. There is no label. If you can put yourself into this mind, how would you react? How would you choose to think about it?

You might, as a wise person, sit in silence, pray, listen to your body, come to terms with behaviors you know could be effecting your health, ask for forgiveness, begin to pay attention to how you feel when you eat. All these behaviors would represent a soul wanting to understand what’s going on in their body. Today this behavior is almost forgotten because of expectations repeated over time.

Can you see how a “label” cuts of possibility and at the same time creates a repetitive belief, a creation of one’s life? If I repeatedly say “I’m can play guitar” “I can play guitar”’ eventually I will pick up a guitar. If I repeatedly say “I believe in that disease” “I believe in that disease” eventually I pick it up.

It’s not saying that others have not experienced or died from a disease and it doesn’t exist, but maybe it doesn’t. Maybe it was created by all minds focused on it and giving it a good label and therefore much power.

Thoughts create our world

Today we find staggering amounts of history and science to be largely inaccurate or false. Scientific beliefs about health and disease have changed. Basic truths have changed. Science has changed.  Today we usher in amazing new truths about our world. We usher in the shredding labels of what was believed and allow a higher conception of our selves and our health to grow. This is why the newer generation is already experiencing such amazing human feats.

We have before us with new technologies the ability to evolve into Avatar. Where our technology is assisting us. We may be able to create a synergy with Earth in a way that all we begin to experience unlimited potential.

Lessons

Repetition is the best way to create new behavior. This is the determining factor between a fleeting thought or creation. The more one thinks of something (repetition) the more they create elements of it in their life. Learning guitar, driving a car, learning to dance, It’s common sense.

Abraham, the channeled entity of Ester Hicks continually shares the message that we can create social events into existence simply by more and more people believing it’s true.

Believing in possibilities is believing in something which doesn’t currently exist. It’s an unknown factor that can be scary for most people. The irony is; if one has a disease, going against the label and believing in possibility may be the only thing that saves them, yet the comfort of their situation is a safe bet. They know what to expect. The mind succumbs to the negative repetition. The mind becomes useless and the subconscious mind takes over. Even the most marble mind can revive if we simply give more energy to the idea of untapped possibility.

One way to see things differently in every situation is to know that we are creating our version of life. When someone shares what they believe to be true in life, say to yourself, “that is an interesting version of life”. Then decide if that is something you choose to believe as “the way” or “a way.”

The more we focus on the idea that it could be another way, the more it grows. This is the meaning of the simple and powerful phrase “Feed Love. Love Grows”

Today even those who seem to be the brightest, even those I’ve looked up to at times, can still be lured the idea of separation. Us against them is the theme. Duality, the simplest of understanding and the biggest hurdle for humanity.

ALL One.

Hmm?  Think of it like this. It’s not so much “I am you and you are me”, but more of “we are all playing a part in the energy we create towards our success, together, all involved.” ALL One, at every moment.

Join me in celebrating your personal practice with a moment in your day. Become willing to see something another way, a happier way, a healthier way, a harmonious way.

What if nothing mattered? What if we all go to heaven? “He who hath never falsely accused throw the first stone.” What if a disease can be simply introduced to us and it is our choice to accept it or not? What if our mind is that powerful (It is. We’ve scientifically proved it.)  

Now is the most spirit-filled time to believe. Through my 30 years of rehabilitation therapy practice, I observed this simple truth.  What a client chooses to believe is what they got. For example; one patient of mine said he needed a hip replacement. The pain was sharp, and it was affecting everything in his life. This man was an avid speed walker and overweight.  Treating him, I observed the stiffness in his hips tested positive for trigger points. He believed he needed the hip replacement and all I was doing was helping ease the pain until surgery. I told him his pain may just be a symptom of trigger points. I began to give him relief, but his commitment to the idea of hip replacement trumped my idea of something different. After surgery, he told me that the report stated his hip was in “pristine” condition. He wasn’t willing to believe in something different. He was using the “I’m at that age” label.

So which label is going to be the first label you remove?

Want more?…. Say this night and day and all day long: “I now smash and demolish every untrue record in my subconscious mind, sending it back into the heap of nothingness from which it came of my vain imaginings. I now replace in my subconscious mind the true records of eternal health, eternal wealth and perfect self-expression”.

I hope this helps.

The Game of Life and How to Play it- Florence Scovell Shinn

Anti-Aging and renewed Life.

Some  people believe aging is a process of degeneration of the physical body. This has been the case since early industrialization slowly poisoned generations of people. Our early civilization experienced short lives due to then, unknown diseases and sicknesses related to sanitation. Today all our top diseases are environmental, diseases of the fork we say. But the belief that disease came with age became a common belief even today!

Today however we have evolved to know we can change the collective mind and return to a long living cellular construction through nature and our mind power. Getting old and falling  apart is a thing of the past. Even problems like joint wear and tear can be reversed. There is a simple and wise expression for understanding how to revitalize your body.”If you don’t use it, you lose it.” Many people fall apart because they no longer use certain parts of their body to the fullest and the body naturally atrophies.

The natural process is to be in a continued state of learning of regeneration which comes from simply making a decision to experience yourself in a new way everyday. Just feeling that we can regenerate begins to regenerate our cells.

Aging, as in western belief, is really just repeated unhealthy behaviors done long  enough to experience the effect. It just happens that everyone are repeating the same behaviors. These behaviors lead to Ill health, stiff joints, poor body function, disease and medication.

Anti-aging, however  is repeated healthy behaviors  done  long enough to feel the effect., regeneration, freedom of movement, all systems  functioning properly and no drug dependency

This is what we teach in the process of yoga. It is where asana, or posture training, becomes a vital guide in the process of regeneration. Placing yourself in certain posture helps to compress and release (exercise) vital organs of the body along with the skeletal muscle. This compression and release flushes and encourages blood flow into areas of the body we don’t usually think about. Posture training also reveals injuries that may be lingering or unknown. Posture training compresses the body in ways to teach us where we carry excessive fat and helps us to flush fat and other waste. When you combine the asana/posture training with the mental and social aspects of yoga, you discover incredible power.

There are more than enough cases of people once chronically injured who’ve come back to dynamic health through the process of yoga. Today we have the wisdom to know how yoga supports new ways of regenerating our body and transforming our lives.

When we practice, we create great energy and this energy is directed to visions of health and prosperity while we are in posture. This is an added benefit we get in yoga because our mind can be free to visualize as we feel our body deeply. It’s the deep inner visualization and belief which can reconstruct our unconscious mind for good or bad and change our lives accordingly, good or bad. So when we have time to practice mind control we can transform ourselves beyond the thinking mind. It’s a double dose of transformation when we can exercise our body and mind at the same time. It is the believing mind that determines our health.

In the physical aspect, the body gets out of balance through unconscious repeated behaviors of an unhealthy nature. All movement be it lifting a box or lifting your shoulders while recalling a memory is a neuromuscular process that trains the body for further repeated movements as necessary. But as you can imagine from this example a stressful memory can have lasting physical implementations that may not work for a healthy structure. These repeated behaviors create structural definition good or bad.

Yoga posture training brings our structure into balance and reveals how our repeated behaviors are playing out in our lives. Then we begin to notice these behaviors more clearly when they come up and can make adjustments or transform memories in a way that supports a more balanced and harmonious behavior

This is where the wisdom comes in. You never have to say I wish I was young again. If you are in a state of newness, every phase is exciting. Our goals should be to develop wisdom through confidence and observation as we age, then utilize the wisdom from past experiences to make informed and wise decisions for our evolutionary process each day forward. When we use our wisdom this way, we become masters.

Keep it real. Be responsible and go get it!

I love you.

Ancient Secrets to Longevity Fitness Challenge

Need to Exercise?   Short on time?   Want to add more to your fitness routine?

Challenge yourself with this ancient fitness routine to boost your health and longevity.

For 30 days take the 15 minutes to do these rites everyday!

In the book “Secrets to the Fountain of Youth” a man shares his discovery of this longevity exercise. Traveling deep in the Himalayas, he found a tribe of Tibetan Priests  who shared their secrets of their longevity health. These Lamas looked far younger than their age and lived a very long time.

Do these rites diligently over 30 days and see for yourself how much strength and agility you create. Start slowly the first week with as many repetitions as you can, maybe only three or four.   Be sure to do the same amount of repetitions for each rite. Stay with it and increase the repetitions each week. Give yourself the chance to work up to the maximum of twenty one (21) repetitions of each rite.

Along with any longevity program, be aware of your eating habits and mental stress. Stress is the main factor in all disease therefore learning more about mindfulness will help. Eating more than one type of food at a time also creates stress within the body. Eat fewer combinations of food and utilize more herbs. Do not eat late. Learn to stop eating after 5 PM. Do not eat sugar in the evening and learn to eliminate sugar all together. Eat more good fats andreduce alcohol intake. For more dietary guidelines read my HEALTH INSIGHTS PAGE.

The biggest challenge to these rites for beginners is the process by which toxins or metabolic waste are squeezed out of the system causing nausea or dizziness. This is exactly what the body needs and shows how purifying these rites are. Start slow and get through it. Health and longevity awaits!

HERE WE GO!

RITE number ONE

The first rite is a simple one. It is done for the express purpose of speeding up the vortexes. Spinning helps open the vortexes better than anything else. Spinning is also known to elevate consciousness and bring one into a heightened state of awareness. Children do it all the time when they’re playing.

Stand erect with arms outstretched, horizontal to the floor and begin to spin to the right.  At first, adults tend to get dizzy easy because they are not used to it and the energy centers spinning open creates a surge we are not used to. Once the body becomes used to spinning, it become quite an energizing experience. stay diligent.

Do what dancers do. Focus on a single point as you begin to spin then at your maximum twist turn quickly your head 180 degrees and focus on another single point as you spin.

The Focused ones


How can you tell the person who’s got it going on, focused and visionarily strong?
They move with intent. They are not looking around wondering what everyone else is doing, subjecting themselves to vampires and thieves. 
The thieves I speak of are representative in the ethical guidelines of yoga the Yamas.

The five yamas, are self-regulating behaviors involving our interactions with other people and the world at large.
Ahimsa: nonviolence
Satya: truthfulness
Asteya: non-stealing
Brahmacharya: non-excess (often interpreted as celibacy)
Aparigraha: non-possessiveness, non-greed.

Non-stealing relates to the energy you take from another, be it physical or non-physical. In one glance a person can steal the moment you give them, define it and put it upon/into you. It may be a moment of inspiration and upliftment as in a smile or a disruptive and fearful glare defining their existence.
approval
One who is self-sufficient, complete and confident will travel through time/space directly into the people and places that are essential for the creation of their desires.
We are all creators and healers, transformers of space. We define the space around us by focusing our attention in one direction or another. Those not focused on a path will wander aimlessly into the wild, and subject themselves to endless variations of others opinions, beliefs and endless suffering. I am not talking about physical wandering either. I am talking about the life path/dream one holds tightly to their souls energy from the point of waking from sleep every day.
Some wake with gratitude and vision and others wake with fear and confusion. 
Waking
It is summed up in a phrase molded by Irene Dunne: “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”
There is power in that phrase beyond a smile of approval.
The person with direction in their life is not taking their eyes off the road. They don’t need to be in random conversations with those babbling about their beliefs or fears, or looking around for approval in the eyes of others. When you take your eyes off the road you’re in danger of crashing, because those eyes can kill.
Stand in your path without the need for approval or acceptance. I knew a man who would always have to preface his words and opinions with pre approved acceptance from others in an attempt to persuade others and avoid his fear of disapproval. He was the most uncomfortable person to be around.
It doesn’t matter what you wish to create. Create with all your heart. Marilyn Manson is a great example. He’s one of my fellow Capricorn leaders, an intelligent man with a wildly creative soul with no need of approval from any human being. I love him.
MM
Find your path. “You are never given a dream without also given the power to make it true.” -Richard Bach

Focus. Focused intention builds the dream.
Believe in your power. Believe everything is drawing you closer to your desires.
Stand forward. Walk forward, heart forward and spine tall. Walk from were you are now to the point of attraction for you each day. You will walk into the people and places that fit the joy you seek, the kindred souls of the angels that will guide you away from the thieves. This is the core power of the Law of Attraction.

Who are you?
