Self-hypnosis is also a potent tool for change. Hypnosis, the act of relaxing and dwelling in the subconscious mind with positive self-suggestions, helps to bring change to the body and mind.
We are a society seeking change. How can we bring change without changing ourselves? We set out to do the right thing, and then we find ourselves falling into the same old patterns. We need to accept change as part of who we are right now, and to accept that we are now whom we have chosen to become.
First, we must look at the past and accept it. Then, we may see the present and accept it as the now… and live in it. By living in the now, we create our future. We become who we want to through change and reinforcement. Read the rest of this entry »
Thoughts are a very important aspect in life. If you are having a good thought, you’re having a good day. If you are having a bad thought, you are having a bad day. Thoughts are vital in our daily life design. Thoughts can make you, or break you.
It all starts with your thinking. You can decide if you’re going to be having a good day, or bad day. You are the only one who can decide if you are going to think negative or positive thoughts. You alone own the power of your thoughts.
Think about it. You could be having the greatest day in your life and all of a sudden you think of something negative and the good day just turned into an awful day. You alone have the power to control your thoughts. Only you know your thoughts. You also have the power to share them, or to keep them to yourself. Your thoughts are yours. No one knows your thoughts, but yourself. It is something private. Read the rest of this entry »
The power of our thoughts are presented to us daily, and many miss the messages or responses to what they themselves are putting out. The incredible power of thought is an energy. Energy can calm or disrupt. Know that this power also belongs to you. Thought evokes emotion and emotion evokes thought. This is our cycle.
Do you hold that much power? Yes, you do. Collectively it is a force to be reckoned with. It brings to mind an expression my mentor would use in regards to people’s words and actions: “If they only used their power for good.” Says it all.
Have you ever walked into a room and felt the energy as ‘thick’ or ‘unwelcoming.’ I believe we all have. On the flip side, we have also entered a space that was warm, inviting and full of love. Is this ‘atmosphere’ created? Yes, it is… by the people that inhabit that space, or by the energy the people who had been there left behind. We are the creators of our energetic environment. This ties into love and relationships in a big way. Read the rest of this entry »
Cherish your time alone. It is important to take some time out for yourself to process emotions and energies. As a human on this Earth you are ever always experiencing the energies that are around you, whether it is your personal space or the consciousness of the ‘all.’
Focus on mastering the mind, for it is in your mind that you create your own reality and once you master your mind, you become the sole master of your life, instead of at the whim of the energies swirling outside of you.
The first step in mastering the mind is to constantly be present with yourself. It is easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of doing, moving from one action to the next exhausting yourself just thinking about all that needs to be done. But the reality is, there is nothing that needs to be done. There is only that which needs to be. Read the rest of this entry »
Sadly, we tend to overlook the very real, physical signs our bodies give us, to let us know that the stress is all too much. If you’re experiencing one or more of these symptoms, it might be time to take a look at how to reduce stress levels and get your total health on track.
Pain in our bodies is probably the most obvious sign something is wrong, yet it tends to get ignored until it’s almost too late. Aches and pains, stomach issues, muscle tension, and heart palpitations are among the most common. Also, when we’re under stress, our sleep may suffer. Sleep is crucial to a person’s well-being, and if we’re not getting enough sleep (or too much) the entire body suffers as a result. Read the rest of this entry »
It is a bit of conundrum that we have this Western culture desire to achieve a goal of enlightenment… and then we die. This is like rushing through a vacation and obsessing if we are ‘doing it right.’ What is ‘right’ anyway? We each are completely different people on our own individual journey.
After we achieve our life lesson and our chosen destiny for this life, we cross over. So really, what is the rush? So, we can get onto the next what? Vacation? Job? Lover?
Whether it is music, art, great food, lovemaking… we participate in these so we can be engaged and engulfed in a full, all-consuming, memorable experience – not an end result.
One of the reasons people enjoy doing something very physical or demanding (including creating crises or drama in our lives) is because a challenge (or crises) demands our full attention. It forces us to be completely present, completely engaged and this allows us to immerse our self in enjoying or engaging in the task at hand. Read the rest of this entry »
Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, today a gift from Spirit. That is why it is called ‘the present.’ The present is indeed a gift – one that is often ignored. At any given moment we can become miserable. Life is a constant series of choices and decisions. We decide what we want to pay attention to, and what we let go.
This can be a dangerous path. If you are in denial; unconsciously running away from your feelings; living in a fantasy world; using unrealistic thinking; or abuse drugs or alcohol; you can indeed ignore reality and red flags.
There is a balance. We live in the world, but we do not control it. A wonderful saying from the Twelve-Step Program is, “Do the footwork, let go of the results.” One can add to that… ‘don’t forget to smell the roses.’ Read the rest of this entry »
Astral projection is a natural occurrence for every human being. Whether we realize it or not, we do separate from our physical bodies every night during the dream state. This is the reason why we sometimes awake feeling more tired than when we went to sleep. Some nights we are more busy during our sleep, visiting other souls and working on special projects, than during our waking hours.
How is astral travel possible? Basically, there are seven bodies that make up our complete self. First, we have a dense physical body. This is our human flesh and bone body. This in turn is connected to our Etheric body. I believe that the Etheric body attaches us, at certain body points, to the physical body. This is the body that is often seen by psychics at the point of death of the physical body. Read the rest of this entry »
