Posts Tagged ‘positive thinking’

We’ve just entered the autumn season. Autumn is the time for harvest and is also a time of completion.  The seeds that were planted in the spring have grown into the fruit bearing plants and are now reaching their peak of bounty.

This is the time of year when we can witness the fruits of our own mock-ups for 2014. What seed ideas did you plant for your life goals and dreams? Have you manifested what you desired? Did the same old weeds keep popping up as different situations and challenges attempting to block your goals from taking form?

Are you happy with your creations? If not, why not?

Most of the issues people have in their lives; the beliefs in struggle, lack, limitation and the non-ability to live a happy, healthy and abundant lifestyle, stem from the root cause of not knowing who they truly are as spirit. We get hypnotized into believing we are the body/personality and have fallen to sleep to our true spiritual identity.

You have a body – but you are not that body. You have thoughts – but you are not those thoughts. You have emotions – but you are not those emotions. You are spirit. Your body is your house. The quality of life you choose to live is based on the thoughts you continuously think. Your emotions are the language your body uses to let you, spirit, know what’s going on in your environment.

Autumn is the perfect time of year to awaken from spiritual slumber and regain your personal divinity as a spirit in a body. This is the perspective that will help you manifest your hearts desires! However – there’s some house cleaning that needs to be done first!

Exercise #1 – The Purge List

Get a pad of paper or a notebook.gi-list

Dedicate some quiet time each day for personal reflection.

What are the hurts and resentments you’re still carrying with you? You know them. Is there a family member or friend who mistreated you? Does that same emotion fire up when you think about this? Write it down!

Write down all the pet peeves, complaints, anger and resentments. Be honest with yourself. Nobody else will be reading this list. This is your time to get absolutely real with yourself. As you’re writing everything down ask yourself if you’re finally ready to let it all go?

These past time situations are acting as blocks preventing you from bringing new positive things into your life. And they HAVE become your pet peeves! You feed them, you nurture them, you carry them with you everywhere you go, including into your mock-up space, which is why you keep attracting the same problems and situations over and over and over again.

I encourage you to spend time each day doing this exercise. When you’re done each day, take a moment to write down the things you’re thankful for in your life right now. We always want to end on a positive note!

Do this for seven days. Next week I will post a video of a powerful exercise that will guide you into hypnosis for the final purge before we move to our next exercise! Have fun with this! I can honestly say my life keeps getting better and I continue to prosper on all levels as I work these techniques!

Love and blessings to all who wander by to read this post!

Green JuiceI’m on the sixth day of a twelve day detox program. This particular cleanse is rather gentle and I’m really enjoying the process. I’m using an herbal/tincture program, drinking lots of fresh juice and eating mostly raw veggies if I get hungry. I usually do some type of internal cleanse with each season. I’m not a perfectionist. I don’t label myself a vegetarian, vegan or anything at all. I simply believe in moderation and choosing the healthy foods that are good for my body. I cleanse when I feel lethargic or heavy from over-indulging, when I desire to end an old habit that no longer serves a positive purpose in my life and when I’m getting ready to take a new step in my personal growth and want a kick-start to get me going. But a physical detox is not what this blog entry is about, however, it is the doorway into the mental detox that I believe is most important.

You’ve heard the saying, ‘you are what you eat’. I believe even more the truth, ‘you are what you think’. Every thought you think creates a physiological response in your body. Until we learn to retrain our brain to consciously think in the positive, we tend to think negative thoughts more readily. This means we get used to feeling negative feelings and just assume it’s the normal way to feel. I work with clients on a daily basis helping them to stop the negative thought process. They are usually quite surprised to become aware of the unconscious negativity flowing through their brain. They are even more surprised when they start to feel better, physically, once the negative mode as stopped.

I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist. As a hypnotist I don’t treat, diagnose or cure. But, as someone who has been practicing, using and teaching the metaphysical/mind sciences for more than thirty years, I DO know how thoughts create things. I DO know how a long-time pattern of running vibrations of anger, hatred, resentment or fear can create a physical ailment in the body. These vibrations create a state of dis-ease in your body, mind and soul. In time, the negative vibrations can nest and manifest as some type of illness. I know from personal experience.

Approximately ten years ago I had shingles. For almost a year. I could barely walk and spent most of my free time on the floor with my feet up on a chair. I never got the rash which is why the shingles went misdiagnosed for so long. I won’t go into the pain I experienced, if you’ve ever had them you already know. When the third neurologist I saw made a guess and said ‘internal shingles on your spinal cord’ (or something like that), gave me medication that cleared all symptoms super fast – I went searching for the mental cause that helped me create and manifest this dis-ease in the first place.

In the book “Heal Your Body” by Louise L. Hay, the mental cause for shingles is: Waiting for the other shoe to drop. Fear and tension. Too sensitive. Wow! Did this make sense to me. For three years prior to this I had been dealing with an extremely stressful personal situation that also involved the welfare of my children. I even remembered thinking and saying to people “I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop”. I was constantly looking over my shoulder, fearful and stressed about what might be happening next. This internal dialogue, mixed with the physical attributes helped to manifest in my body as shingles. Once I knew the mental cause I could work on the energy and cleanse my subconscious mind of those unconscious thought patterns. By the way, the opposite positive affirmation to shingles is: I am relaxed and peaceful because I trust the process of life. All is well in my world.

The Bible says, “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man, but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” Matthew 15:11. My understanding of this verse means to watch what we think with our mind and say with our mouth. My teacher used to say the tongue was the most unruly member of the body. Harness our thoughts, watch the words we speak and notice the positive changes that will take place in the body. This is the reason I do my best not to get caught up in too many perfect pictures with what I eat. It’s also the very reason I do my best to watch the thoughts moving through me!

What about you? It’s Spring! Time for rebirth and renewal. Why not do a mental diet to cleanse out the old negative patterns in thinking? By releasing the old vibrations you are opening yourself to receive more positive things from this beautiful, abundant Universe. Here’s a simple exercise to get you started: Wear an elastic band around your wrist. Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought or saying something in the negative, give that elastic band a good pull and let it SNAP you! This will help remind you of the decision you’ve made to retrain your brain to release negativity and only think those positive thoughts!  I know you can do this!
