The Second Missing Link to the Health Care Puzzle – What we “THINK”.
The energetic power of our thoughts is the most powerful force on the earth! Nothing was ever created here that wasn’t thought of first. We ARE a thought of God made in the Creator’s image as “creators”.
Much of what we experience in our life WE create. Does that mean we say to the Universe, “I want cancer”? Please give it to me”? Not exactly. We attract to ourselves like vibrations. Unlike what we’ve been told, like energy attracts like energy (the Law of Attraction). You may have very little in common with someone (seemingly opposite) and your energies can still be a perfect match. Hence; opposites may seem to attract.
Where our focus goes, energy flows. We give the most power to what we focus on the most. Just like a camera lens zooms in on its object to bring it into view, our focused thought creates a strong magnet that pulls the object of our focus into our experience. Everyone has negative thoughts (low vibrational). However,
Our concentrated focus is the clay from which we mold our experience.
For example; all the focus on cancer has only fed the energy of cancer. More are sick and dying of cancer than ever before. We are not winning the war. Most everyone I know has had some kind of personal experience with cancer.
Have you ever noticed some people seem to do a lot of stuff the world labels as “bad or “wrong” and they still live a long, happy, disease-free life? And some seem to do everything “Good” or “Right”; they are doing “Good” for others and may be eating the way the world says is healthy. And still, they develop chronic disease and suffer long, painful deaths.
Our mental, physical and spiritual health is determined by our state of “BEING” not “doing”.
My grandmother was a wonderful example of how to live healthy and happy. She lived to the ripe old age of 95; ate bacon and eggs every day and spent many years whipping up homemade biscuits and gravy. She was a fabulous southern cook! She always did what she loved. She worked as a talented seamstress for many years and made beautiful clothes for her family. My mother was the best dressed pregnant woman you ever saw (my country coming out:) Later in life, with only a 4th grade education at 55 years old she decided she wanted to be a “Beautician”. She succeeded in spades and retired at 82. The fruits of her labor fed her body and soul.
George Burns is another fine specimen of a life lived long and well. He lived to be 98 and smoked cigars every day for 70 years.
Both of these people lived through some very stressful times; the Great Depression, World War 1 and World War 2. So what was their secret to longevity? Their inward environment was made peaceful by their choice to be happy. They set their focus on the beauty and sweetness of life.
Experience has shown me in my work and life, it makes no difference what you are eating or “doing” if you are not “being” happy. Our thoughts and actions must be in alignment with the energy of health to create abundant health.
I’m not saying that everyone is born to live to be 100 or that you will never be sick. We all have a journey; a time to live, a time to die, lessons to learn and gifts to unwrap. What I am saying is you have a great and wonderful capacity to create another experience; an even better experience simply by shifting your focus which shifts your energy.
It is well established EVERYTHING is energy. However, many still have the mindset, “If I can’t see it, then it doesn’t exist”. We can’t see electricity, but we can see the effect. We can’t see sound, but we can see the effect. We can’t see the energy of our thoughts, but we can see the effect. This is demonstrated in the most convincing way in the Evolution of Free Health “Food IS Talking” workshops.
Our thoughts are “out there”. Our thoughts are not self-contained within our own mind. And, they not only affect us, they affect our environment and other people (the collective). If you have witnessed a riot or spontaneous “flash mob” you have seen first-hand how contagious the energy of our thoughts are.
Our children are a part of the collective consciousness. Our thoughts (energy) and actions (reactions to our thoughts) affect them. They can become fearful, unhappy and stressed out; or happy, centered and calm. As very young children, they have not developed stress management tools or the ability to discern truth from untruth. However, being closer to their natural state (less covered up by the world) they “feel” energy (depending on their “sensitivity” some more than others) and they react accordingly.
Stress is powerful energy and it is born out of fear. The world teaches us fear and worry. We’ve learned to be anywhere but in the peaceful present.
Fear is caused by living in our mind where our body cannot go –
Into a painful past or uncertain future.
It’s our human brain that allows us the rich experiences of joy and pain and everything in between that weaves the beautiful tapestry we are becoming.
It’s our perception of the “rich” experience (good or bad) that determines our next experience. If you can find the Good (often a priceless lesson) and I promise it’s there, you will have lifted the vibration of your energy to attract more good. Focus on the “bad” (what you don’t want), you are in effect saying, “Give me more of that please”.
If you are worrying, you are praying for what you don’t want. This reminds me of the title of an old Garth Brooks song, “Thank God for Unanswered Prayers”.
If you have the same “bad” experiences over and over, then you have not taken the time to change your mind – your focus. A shift in perspective can change everything. You only need look back on history to know that is Truth. At one time it was “thought” slavery was perfectly acceptable and women were not intelligent enough to vote. Thank Goodness enough people were able to shift their minds to create these changes!
So how do we begin to change our mind and our experience? I’ve heard many say it’s impossible when 90% of what we think consciously is run by the subconscious (thoughts we are not aware of -The Broken Record). How can you change or be responsible for what you are not aware of?
You may have come to believe you are a “victim” of circumstance (your environment) and your subconscious programming. We’ve learned that genetics plays a big role in our state of health. There is also a school of thought that says “epigenetics”; emotional tendencies passed down through generations determine much of our experience.
It is also said you cannot change your conscious thinking until the subconscious is brought into the conscious (lots of therapy dollars spent on this idea).
The question that came up for me is this…. If we don’t possess the ability to consciously change our mind and our circumstances then aren’t we just hapless victims without FREE WILL? That started the wheels turning!
Coming from someone who remembers very little of my childhood and teenage years, I’ve proven the ability to change my conscious mind and my experience regardless of programming and past generational tendencies. I couldn’t tell you the name of one teacher from kindergarten through high School. Over the last 4 years, I have gone from sick and unhappy to living an amazing, magical life doing what I love. If I can do it – anyone can!
BTW – I didn’t do this by myself. We are not meant to journey alone. “When the student is ready the teacher will appear” and they have in person, through books; and through the gift of revelations!
I have lived a “health nut” life style most of my adult life. Health and happiness still eluded me until I made a “conscious” decision to change my victimhood mindset from “life is happening to me” to “life is happening FOR me”. This created a profound shift in my “point of view”. It naturally brought up the most important question – EVER! “I wonder what this experience is for?”
I began asking this question when my experience was not what I would have chosen or when I found myself judging the experience as “bad”. The key here was to ask with “childlike” curiosity (no judgment) and then be still. The answer cannot be heard within a mind that already knows the answer. This was the biggest challenge and I accepted it. Amazing gifts have been revealed through this process.
If you have chosen the mindset “life is happening for me”, then you are ready to become aware of thinking that is not in alignment with health and happiness. Ask Divine Guidance to help make you aware of your thinking.
Pay attention to your body. Your body is reacting to “your” thinking. It is an amazing communication tool that will tell you exactly where the focus of your thoughts are. You can “feel” the vibration.
Do you feel constricted anywhere? Are your shoulders or chest tight? Are you wound up?
Or, do you feel expansive? Can you relax? Can you be still? Can you breathe deeply and easily?
If your feelings are ignored long enough they will get your attention sooner or later by creating something you cannot ignore; drama and illness.
Breaking the habit of negative thinking begins with becoming aware of it. Thoughts spoken inwardly or outwardly that contain “n’t” words; don’t, can’t, shouldn’t (you get the idea) are focusing your energy on what you don’t want. Focusing on the “perceived” problem is also giving power to what you don’t want. Do not include the word for what you “don’t want” in a thought or sentence. How does this work?
Replace the thought “I want to lose weight” or “I don’t want cancer” with “I am so grateful for this perfectly balanced body”. Or, “I am so grateful for a perfectly functioning immune system”. (The optimally functioning immune system protects us from all disease). The focus is off the weight and the cancer and on gratitude and health. Gratitude is rocket fuel for manifesting our truest desires.
Pay attention to when you use I AM statements to affirm what you don’t want. Example: Instead of saying, “I AM so exhausted”; say, “I AM unlimited energy”. If you don’t want to be exhausted – don’t own it!
We do not have to go through years of therapy and remember every perceived wrong to break the broken record playing in the background of our mind or imprinted in our DNA.
One word has the power to cause a shift in vibration, just like one drop of water in the ocean creates a ripple. Ripples become waves and waves shift the earth. Word has the power to affect our cells and change our DNA. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/debbie-hampton/how-your-thoughts-change-your-brain-cells-and-genes_b_9516176.html
What we feed our bodies affects our brain.
We have more mental illness than ever before. What has changed the most in the last hundred years when it comes to our health? Our food supply and the accepted belief that pharmaceuticals are a natural and inevitable part of aging.
Our brains are part of the physical body and are affected by what we ingest just like the rest of the body. Dietary fat has long been considered the enemy. Our brain organ is made up of mostly fat. It makes sense the brain needs healthy fats to be healthy. The low-fat diet consumed for years to stem heart disease made up for flavor with lots of toxic chemicals and sugar. Alzheimer’s is now an epidemic. http://www.faim.org/do-low-fat-diets-cause-alzheimers http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2738337/
Sometimes pharmaceuticals can be of temporary benefit in helping to break a cycle of thinking; however they are never a cure. Drugs can bump the broken record and allow us to skip over a rough patch. Drugs numb our feeling barometer. All of our feelings are mandatory! And, not just our emotions but also our physical feelings. Remember, they tell us the vibration of our thoughts that create our experience. They are our built-in guidance system.
Sometimes therapies that help us get “in touch” with our feelings can be very useful. Equine therapy is an amazing tool. You cannot lie to a horse! We’ve been taught to suppress our feelings, “Big boys don’t cry”, etc. Allowing our feelings to be felt is the first step to uncovering our most precious and natural in-born intuition; our “felt perception” (Thank you Michael Brown for that fabulous word!)
Feel your feelings, don’t stuff them and don’t wallow (adding more fuel to the energy of what you don’t want). Feel it and ask “what is it for? What’s its story?” Stuffed feelings will keep presenting themselves until you acknowledge them, just like a child will get your attention in any way that works until they have it.
You can eat and “think” yourself happy. One word; thought or spoken has the power to raise the vibration of the body and mind to create a happy instant. String a few together and the instant becomes a minute and then it becomes an hour. Before you know it, you have broken the broken record!
Unhappiness is a habitual way of thinking based on past experience.
Create a new habit and Break the Broken Record!
