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.

What is Mindfulness and Meditation?

Today, more than ever before, people are seeking methods to feel stable, balanced and aware of where we are going.

Meditation is the answer and mindfulness leads the way. Mindfulness and meditation go hand in hand. Mindfulness can be used as a type of meditation for everything we do throughout our day. Meditation therefore, builds strong mindfulness muscles.

Meditation is an ancient intelligence by which one can find that sense of peace and balance within. It is a method whereby one can feel the sense of completeness. In that sense of completeness comes a feeling of bliss and comfort. Meditation comes as a big challenge for many people. Sitting still, without thought, might seem like a simple thing to do, but when one is faced with silence, the mind with its prolonged state of thinking – days, weeks, years of thinking – wants to continue. The momentum can be so great that not thinking becomes nearly impossible, even painful.

Meditation is an exercise.

It is a method that needs constant practice to develop. It’s similar to learning a language, one  lesson will not make thee wise.  We say fifteen minutes twice a day is a common time span to begin training in meditation. There are many methods for learning meditation, but the paradox is that thinking about how to meditate defeats the purpose.

Mindfulness is a part of meditation, but more so, it is a process by which one can transition into the deeper aspects of meditation by becoming more focused in the moment. Mindfulness brings you into a state of intelligence because mindfulness is whereby the mind is full of only the current physical undertaking. Think of it like drinking a glass of lemonade. The experience will be of drinking lemonade. If you were to add cranberry juice, oatmeal, beer and french fries, it would become so convoluted that the focus becomes thwarted. There is confusion. This is how many people run their minds on a day to day basis. The body may be on a task, but the mind is elsewhere. This is the most applicative understanding of what mindfulness is.

Mindfulness is knowing “what is” in this moment.

This is not to be confused with how we create ourselves through vision. We say circumstances don’t matter, but rather the state of mind matters. The mind creates the matter. One can be frustrated about a circumstance with all kinds of fruitless or impractical thoughts, or instead, find joyful feelings that will guide to more joyful experiences regardless of the current circumstance.

This does not conflict with mindfulness. Mindfulness is knowing what you are doing – be it making a cup of coffee, sitting in the park, or sitting in jail.  Mindfulness brings a sense of commitment to the moment.  Know what you are doing, or about to do, and participating with full intent. It does not mean you cannot do two things at once. It simply means to understand what it is you are choosing to do. This in itself can help lead you towards meditation.

A mindful person can be quite pleasant to be around because mindfulness brings a sense of peace and bliss. Knowing who you are and owning what you choose in the moment with a state of commitment breeds confidence and honor.

How to practice mindfulness?  Here are a few exercises:

  1. Get yourself a grape, raisin or slice of apple. Spend five minutes eating it. Savor it. Narrate it. Mindful eating is the best way to be sure you are chewing your food enough and can even be combined with healing visualization of the food providing health and vitality to the body.
  2. In the temple, we learn walking meditation. Spend one hour walking. Feel exactly how your foot is placed on the earth. Do this barefoot if you can. Narrate out loud to yourself while walking: right foot, step, left foot, step, right foot, step, left foot, step. Allow each step 5-10 seconds. Do it.
  3.  There are many ways to apply mindfulness exercise. The practice of mindfulness allows you to come up with some of your own.

When mindfulness is present, truth exists. See if you can find it.

Live and Let Die

There’s an over-riding element to ones behavior that determines the fate of our living experience.

Natural healing is a truly powerful experience but ultimately its a decision to live or die.  My love and I follow the methods of our mentors Dr. Christopher and Dr. Schulze for our own lives and share their knowledge with others in need. However, the knowledge of self healing goes deeper than the physical nature of living and places the decision to live or die on the patient.

Recently, we have been in contact with someone in need of healing from a major disease. From the onset of meeting this person, it was clear they were battling emotional turmoil which kept them from healing. Dr. Schulze says, “We would never take anyone into our clinic until they first admit they caused the illness, and are willing to deal with the emotional issue around why they caused the disease.”

Yoga teaches truth

The truth of who we are in every moment through the process of one pointed focus and meditation reveals our inner truth. In meditation, we can see clearly. When we begin to see clearly, we can take correct action for our lives. This person suffering from disease has obvious emotional issues, and is unaware of its relationship to their dis-ease. They are bouncing from one healing fad to another, not facing core methods proven to heal.

Why? Often because dealing with the truth is too difficult. Even those “trying” to heal naturally look for a quick fix. Through this experience, I have come to know what the expression “battling disease” refers to.  It is like fighting to get your way, while avoiding the rules of the game. It’s like the choice to live or die is not our choice but rather a decision based on how many external points are gained.

live or die attracts like minded.

People create avoidance energy around them to attract others who are emotionally unstable, co-dependent, even harmful to support their beliefs. My love and I, full of experience, wisdom and compassion many times have been avoided in lieu of those better suited for disabling or coddling the sick one. We see this, and still hold the perfect vision of their good health, feeding the light within them to help attract an awakening.

What we focus on, grows. As a healing team, we intuitively observe one’s presence, evaluate, and send light to those in need. When one is seeking to regain life, it is usually best to look for possible alternative to the norm or expected behaviors of those close to us.

We support whatever path you choose.

We prefer not to feed one’s weakness, instead we like to uplift. One must be ready to do the work and commit to whatever it takes, and be diligent in order to change the current reality. Live and let die. Let go of current perceptions if you seek a new reality; this in itself is a form of death which produces new life, like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.

Blessings on your path. Believe in mother nature. You are loved. You are love. The love that created you will always sustain you. Love thyself, heal thyself.
