We are working on becoming healthy, and we catch a cold. Take your time. Be kind to yourself. This simple exercise shows me so much. I like to add another step.
In less than an hour, I am able to get to some of the core issues that are beneath the outer problem. She went from dentist to dentist feeling each one had only made her look worse. She went to have her nose fixed, and they did a poor job. Each profession was mirroring her belief that she was ugly. Her problem was not her looks, but that who was convinced somethingwas wrong with her.
There was another woman who had terrible breath. It was uncomfortable to be around her. She was studying to be a minister, and her outer demeanor was pious and spiritual. Beneath this was a raging current of anger and jealousy that exploded now and then when she thought someone might be threatening her position. Her inner thoughts were expressed through her breath, and she was offensive even when she pretended to be loving. No one threatened her but herself.
His mother was understandably hysterical and difficult to deal with, but the boy was bright and clever and wanted to live. He was willing to do anything I told him to, including changing the way he thought and spoke.
His separated parents were always arguing, and he really did not have a settled life. Overweight is another good example of how we can waste a lot of energy trying to correct a problem that is not the real problem. People often spend years and years fighting fat and are still overweight. They blame all their problems on being overweight. The excess weight is only an outer effect of a deep inner problem. To me, it is always fear and a need for protection.
So, I refuse to focus on excess weight or on diets. For diets do not work. The only diet that does work is a mental diet — dieting from negative thoughts. Sometimes clients even get angry with me as I explain how simple it is to change their lives. They may feel I do not understand their problems. She could not succeed at anything as long as she felt so worthless.
Some people are not ready, and there is not judgment. We all I did not even begin to make my changes until I was in my forties. The Real problem So here is a client who has just looked into the harmless little mirror, and he or she is all upset. I watch their faces as I ask them if they criticize themselves. Their reactions tell me so much: Well, of course I do. All the time. Not as much as I used to. Why do you criticize yourself?
What is wrong with you? As they talk I make a list. We have finally fount the central issue. Now we do not have to bother with any of the side effects like body problems, relationship problems, money problems, or lack of creative expressions. We can put all our energy into dissolving the cause of the whole thing: Now we have come up with what I believe is the real problem.
We feel we are not good enough, and there is a lack of self-love. From the way I look at life, if there is any problem, then this has to be true. So let us look at where this belief came from. How did we go from being a tiny baby who knows the perfection of itself and of life to being a person who has problems and feels unworthy and unlovable to one degree or another? People who already love themselves can love themselves even more.
Think of a rose from the time it is a tiny bud. As it opens to full flower, till the petal falls, it is always beautiful, always perfect, always changing. We are doing the best we can with the understanding, awareness and knowledge we have. As we gain more, understanding, awareness and knowledge, then we will do things differently.
Mental Housecleaning Now is the time to examine our past a bit more, to take a look at some of the beliefs that have been running us. Some people find this part of the cleansing process very painful, but it need not be. We must look at what is there before we can clean it out. If you want to clean a room thoroughly, you will pick up and examine everything in it. Some things you will look at with love and you will dust them or polish them to give them new beauty.
Some things you will see that need repair or refinishing, and you will make a note to do that. Some things will never serve you again, and it becomes time to let those things go. Old magazines and newspapers and dirty paper plates can be dropped into wastebasket very calmly. There is no need to get angry in order to clean a room It is the same thing when we are cleaning our mental house. There is no need to get angry just because some of the beliefs in it are ready to be tossed out.
Let them go as easily as your would scrape bits of food into the trash after a meal. If a thought or belief does not serve your, let it go! There is no written law that says that because you once believed something, you have to continue to believe it forever. A father who repeated told him he was stupid. He said he wanted to be a success so his daddy would be proud of him. But he was riddled with guilt, which created resentment, and all he could produce was one failure after another, they failed.
He used failure to get even. He made his daddy pay and pay and pay. Of course, he was the biggest loser. Lack of self-love. The last thing she wanted was to be like her father. They could agree on anything and were always arguing. She only wanted approval, but instead all she got was criticism.
Her body was full of pains. Her father had exactly the same kind of pains. Life is dangerous. A frightened father. Another client saw life as grim and harsh. Being abandoned and ignored.
It was difficult for him to talk. Silence had become a way of life for him. He had just come off drugs and alcohol and was convinced that he was terrible. I discovered his mother had died when he was very young, and he had been reared by an aunt. The aunt seldom spoke except to give an order, and he was brought up in silence.
He even ate alone in silence and stayed quietly in his room day after day, He had a lover who was also a silent man, and they spent most of their time alone in silence. The lover died, and once again he was alone. Negative Messages The next exercise we do is to get a large sheet of paper and make a list of all the things your parents said were wrong with you. What were the negative messages your heard?
Give yourself enough time to remember as many as you can. A half hour usually works well. What did they say about money? What did they say about your body? What did they say about love and relationships? What did they say about your creative talents? What were the limiting or negative things they said to you? What other negative messages did you hear as a child?
Take your time. Be aware of what feelings are going on in your body. What you have on these two pieces of paper are the thoughts that need to be removed from your consciousness. The child will go to one of these two ways, but we will never know the potential of that child. Each one of us has a three-year-old child within us, and we often spend most of our time yelling at that kid in ourselves. If you had a friend who was always criticizing you, would you want to be around that person?
Perhaps you were treated this way as a child and that is sad. However, that was a So, now, here in front of us, we have a list of the negative messages we heard as a child. How does this list correspond with what you believe to be wrong with you?
Are they almost the same? Probably yes. We base our life script on our early messages. It would be very easy just to blame our parents and be victims for the rest of our lives. Blaming your Family Blame is one of the surest ways to stay in a problem. In blaming another, we give away our power.
Understanding enables us to rise above the issue and take control of our future. The past cannot be changed. The future is shaped by our current thinking. It is imperative for our freedom to understand that our parents were doing the best they could with the understanding, awareness, and knowledge they had.
Whenever we blame someone else, we are not taking responsibility for ourselves. Those people who did all those terrible things to us were just as frightened and scared as you are. They felt just the same helplessness as your do. The only things they could possibly teach you are what they had been taught. Understanding will bring you compassion. What kind of childhood would create an adult like that? You need this knowledge for your own freedom. If you demand perfection from them, you will demand perfection from yourself, and you will be miserable all your life.
Choosing Our Parents I agree with the theory that we choose our parents. I believe we are all on an endless journey through eternity. We come to this planet to learn particular lessons that are necessary for our spiritual evolution. Our visits to this planet are like goin to school. If you want to become a beautician, you go to beauty school. If you want to become a mechanic, you go to mechanics school.
If you want to become lawyer, you to go law school. Listening to Others Our older brothers and sisters are gods to us when we are little. If they were unhappy, they probably took it out on us physically or verbally. They might have said things like: In the fifth grade teacher told me emphatically I was too tall to be a dancer. I believed her and put away my dancing ambitions until I was too old to make dancing a career.
Did you understand that tests and grades were only to see how much knowledge you had at a given point of time, or were you a child who allowed tests and grades to measure self-worth? Our early friends share their own misinformation about life with us. The other kids at school can tease us and leave lasting hurts.
And, of course, there are the strong and very persuasive statements made by advertisements in periodicals and on television. You have your negative beliefs to overcome , and I have my negative beliefs to overcome. The glass is both half full and half empty, depending on how you look at it. There are literally billions of thoughts we can choose to think. There is no law written that say we can only think in one way. Whatever I choose to believe becomes true for me. Whatever you choose to believe becomes true for you.
Our thoughts can be totally different. Our lives and experiences are totally different. Examine Your Thoughts Whatever we believe becomes true for us. If you have a sudden financial disaster, then on some level you may believe you are unworthy of being comfortable with money, or you believe in burdens and debt. They just see the outer circumstances as being the way the cookie crumbles. Until some one can show you the connection between the outer experiences and the inner thoughts, you remain a victim in life.
Problem Belief Financial disaster I am not worthy of having money. No friends Nobody loves me. Always pleasing others I never get my way.
Problem with work I am not good enough. Whatever the problem is, it comes from a thought pattern, and thought patterns can be changed!
However, no matter how difficult an issue we are dealing with, it is only an outer result of inner thought pattern. Look at the problems in your life. These thoughts serve us well all of our lives, such as: Other thoughts are very useful at the beginning, but as we grow older they are no longer appropriate.
Better question to ask are: If we were taught as a child as a child that the world is a frightening place, then everything we hear that fits that belief we will accept as true for us. We could easily accept that love is everywhere, and people are so friendly, and I always have whatever I need. Like my childhood experience about not getting any cake see my story, Chapter Then you are sure to be lonely.
Even when you bring a friend or relationship into your life, it will be short-lived. Then I am sure you often feel as though the cupboard is bare, or you find you just get by or are always in debt. I had a client who had been brought up in a household where they believed everything was wrong and could only get worse.
His main joy in life was playing tennis, and then he hurt his knee. He went to every doctor he could find, and it only got worse. Finally, he could not play at all. His belief still makes him last in line. No doubt it fits right in with all the other things we believe. If we want a joyous life, we must think joyous thoughts. If we want a prosperous life, we must think prosperous thoughts.
If we want a loving life, we must think loving thoughts. Whatever we send out mentally or verbally will come back to us in like form. You are never stuck. This is where the changes take place, right her, and right now in our own minds! We can begin to make a shift today! Your problem no longer needs to be truth fro you. It can now fade back to the nothingness from whence it came. You can do it. Remember you are the only person who thinks in your mind!
You are the power and authority in your world! Your thoughts and beliefs of the past have created this moment, and all the moments up to this moment. What you are now choosing to believe and think and say will create the next moment and the next day and the next month and the next year.
Yes, you, darling! I can give you the most marvelous advice, coming from my years of experience, yet you can continue to choose think the same old thoughts, you can refuse to change and keep all your problems. You are the power in your world! You get to have whatever you choose to think!
This moment begins the new process. Each moment is a new beginning, and this moment is a new beginning for you right here and right now! This moment is the Point of Power! This moment is where the change begins! Is It True? Stop for a moment and catch your thought. What are thinking right now?
If it is true that your thought shape your life, would you want what you were just thinking right now to be become true for you? It is not always easy to catch our thoughts because they move so swiftly.
However, we can begin right now to watch and listen to what we say. If you hear yourself expressing negative words of any sort, stop in mid-sentence. Either rephrase the sentence or just drop it.
You get to choose any and all the thoughts you wish. These thoughts will create your future experiences. We may do this once or twice, but as soon as we learn which food upset our bodies, we stay away from them. Let us stay away from thoughts that create problems and pain. When we have something in our present that is undesirable, then we must use our minds to change the situation.
And we can begin to change it this very second. I have never understood the importance of having children memorize battle dates. It seems like such a waste of mental energy. Can you imagine what a whole generation of adults would be like if they had been taught these subjects in school along with their regular curriculum? Think how these truths would manifest.
We would have happy people who feel good about themselves. We would have people who are comfortable financially and who enrich the economy by investing their money wisely.
They would have good relationship with everyone and would be comfortable with the role of parenthood and then go on to create another generation of children who feel good about themselves. Yet within all this, each person would remain an individual expressing his or her own creativity. There is not time to waste. Affirmation In the infinity of life where I am, All is perfect, whole and complete, I no longer choose to believe in old limitations and lack, I now choose to begin to see myself As the Universe sees me perfect, whole, and complete.
The truth of my Being is that I was created Perfect, whole, and complete. I will always be perfect, whole, and complete. I now choose to live my life from this understanding. I am in the right place at the right time, doing the right thing. Others get angry at themselves or at life and also give up. At least you know how to handle that pain.
Does this sound familiar? Something happens, and you get angry. Something else happens, and you get angry again. Something else happens, and once again you get angry.
But you never go beyond getting angry. What does that do? It would be much more helpful to ask yourself how you are crating so many situations to get angry at. What are you believing that causes all these frustrations? What are you giving out that attracts in others the need to irritate you? Why do you believe that to get your way need to get angry?
Whatever you give out comes back to you. The more you give out anger, the more you are creating situations for you to get angry at, like sitting in a corner with a dunce ap on, getting nowhere. Does this paragraph bring up feeling of anger? It must be hitting home.
This is something you could be willing to change. If you really want to know how stubborn you are, just approach the idea of being willing to change.
We could prefer that they change. In order to We must change our way of thinking, change our way of speaking, change our way of expressing ourselves.
Only then will the outer changes occur. This is the next step. We are now fairly clear on what the problems are, and where they came from. Now it is time to be willing to change. I have always had a streak of stubbornness within me. Even now sometimes when I decide to make a change in my life, this stubbornness can come to the surface, and my resistance to changing my thinking is strong.
I can temporarily become self-righteous, angry and withdrawn. Yes, this still goes on within me after all these years of work. Each old layer must give way in order to be replaced with new thinking.
Some of it is easy, and some of it is like trying to lift a boulder with a feather. The more tenaciously I hold on to an old belief when I say I want to make change, the more I know this is an important one for me to release.
It is only by learning these things that I can teach others. It is my opinion that many really good teachers do not come from joyful households where all was easy.
Most good teachers are continually working to release even more to remove ever-deeper layers of limitations. This becomes a lifetime occupation. Housecleaning The mental work I do now is like cleaning a house. I go through my mental rooks and examine the thoughts and beliefs in them. Some I love, so I polish and shine them and make them even more useful. Some I notice need replacement or repair, and I get around to them as I can.
These I either give away or toss into the trash, and I let them be gone forever. I am willing to change. The throat is the energy center in the body where change takes place.
By touching your throat, you are acknowledging you are in the process of changing. Be willing allow the changes to happen when they come up in your life. Things will definitely begin to change as you make these statements. Many Ways to Change Working with my ideas is not the only way to change. There are many other methods that work quite well. In the back of the book I have included a list of many of the ways you could approach your own growth process.
Just think of a few now. There is the spiritual approach, there is the mental approach, and the physical approach. Holistic healing includes body, mind and spirit.
You can begin in any one of these areas as long as you eventually include all the areas. Some begin with the mental approach and do workshops or therapy. Some begin the spiritual area with meditation or prayer. Just begin in the area that appeals to you most.
The others will happen almost by themselves. Junk food eaters who begin on the spiritual level often find that they are drawn to nutrition. They meet a friend or find a book or go to a class that brings them to an understanding that what they put into their bodies will have a lot to do with how feels and look.
One level will always lead to another as long as there is the willingness to grow and change. I give very little nutritional advice because I have discovered that all system work for some people. I do have a local network of good practitioners in the holistic field, and I refer clients to them when I see the necessity for nutritional knowledge.
This an area where you must find your own way or go to a specialist who can test you. Many of the books on nutrition have been written by persons who were very ill and worked out a system for their own healing. Then they wrote a book to tell everyone else the methods they used. However, everyone is not alike. For instance, the macrobiotic and the natural raw food diets are two totally different approaches. The raw food people never cook anything, seldom eat bread or grains, and very careful not to eat fruits and vegetables at the same meal.
And they never use salt. The macrobiotic people cook almost all of their food, have a different system of food combining, and use a lot of salt. Both systems work. Both systems have healed bodies. My personal nutritional approach is simple. If it grows, eat it.
Be conscious of your eating. We also can learn to pay attention to our bodies and the signals we get when we eat in different ways. Cleaning the mental house after a lifetime of indulging in negative mental thoughts is a bit like going on a good nutritional program after a lifetime of indulging in junk foods. They both can often create haling crises. As you begin to change your physical diet, the body begins to throw off the accumulation of toxic residue, and as this happens, you can feel rather rotten for a day or two, So it is when you make a decision to change the mental thought patterns your circumstances can begin to seem worse for a while.
Recall for a moment the end of a Thanksgiving dinner. The pan is all burnt and crusty, so you put in hot water and soap and let it soak for a while. Then you begin to scrape the pan. Now you really have a mess; it looks worse than ever. But, if you just keep scrubbing away soon you will have a pan as good as new. When we soak it with new ideas, all the gook comes to the surface to look at. Just keep doing the new affirmations, and soon you will totally cleared an old limitation.
Willing to Change So we have decided we are willing to change, and we will use any and all methods that work for us. Let me describe one of the methods I use with myself and with others.
What old belief you are holding on to? I wonder where it came from. Do you know? As children we received most of our negative messages from others looking us straight in the eye and perhaps shaking a finger at us. Whenever we look into the mirror today most of us will say something negative to ourselves.
We either criticize our looks or berate ourselves for something. To look yourself straight in the eye and make a positive declaration about yourself is, in my opinion, the quickest way to get results with affirmations.
Perhaps we begin to mention the condition, to complain about it or to see it in other people. It rises to the surface of our attention is some way, and we We often attract a teacher, a friend, a class or workshop, or a book to ourselves that begins to awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of the problem.
My awakening began with a chance remark of a friend who had been told about a meeting. My friend did not go, but something within me responded, and I went.
That little meeting was the first step on my pathway of unfoldment. Perhaps it seems to easy, or unacceptable to our thinking. Our resistance comes up very strong. We may even feel angry about the thought of doing it. Such a reaction is very good, if we can understand that it is the first step in our healing process. I tell people that any reaction they may feel is there to show them they are already in the process of healing even though the total healing is not yet completed.
The truth is that the process begins the moment we begin to think about making a change. Impatience is only another for of resistance. It is resistance to learning and to changing. If you want to move to another room, you have to get up and move step by step in that direction.
Just sitting in your chair and demanding that you be in the other room will not work. Now is the time to acknowledge our responsibility in having created the situation or condition. We were to aware of what we were doing. Now, by acknowledging our responsibility, we become aware and learn to use this power consciously positive ways for our benefit. Often when I suggest a solution to the client a new way to approach a matter or forgiving the person involved — I will see the jaw begin to clench and jut out, and arms cross tightly over the chest.
Maybe even fists will form. Resistance coming to the fore, and I know we have hit upon exactly what needs to be done. We all have lessons we have chosen for ourselves. If things that are so difficult for us are only the lessons we have chosen for ourselves. If things are easy for us, then they are not lessons, but are things we already know. Surrendering, giving up the resistance, and allowing yourself to learn what you need to learn, will make the next step even easier.
We can work on two levels: Observe yourself, watch how you resist and then go ahead anyway. Nonverbal Clues Our actions often show our resistance. For instance: Changing the subject Leaving the room Going to the bathroom Being late Getting sick Procrastinating by: Doing something else Doing busy work Wasting time Looking away, or out the window Flipping through a magazine Refusing to pay attention Eating, drinking, or smoking Creating or ending a relationship Creating breakdowns; cars, appliances, plumbing, etc.
Assumptions We often assume things about others to others to justify our resistance.
We make statements such as: I would have to change my whole personality. Only crazy people go to therapists. My case is different. It will work itself out. Nobody else does it. Beliefs We grow up with beliefs that become our resistance to changing.
Some of our limiting ideas are: My family never did that. Love is not for me. It will take too long. Them We give our power to other and use that excuse as our resistance to changing.
We have ideas like: They have change first. Self Concepts We have ideas about ourselves that we use as limitations or resistance to changing. We are: Too old. Too young. Too fat. Too thin.
Too short. Too tall. Too lazy. Too strong. Too weak. Too dumb. Too poor. Too smart. Too worthless. Too frivolous. Too serious. Too serikous. Too stuck. Delaying Tactics Our resistance is often expresses itself as delaying tactics. We use excuses like: It would take too much time away from my work. As soon as I get back from this trip. Denial This is a form of resistance shows up in denial of the need to do any changing. Things like: There is nothing wrong with me.
I was all right last time. What good would it do to change? If I ignore it, may be the problem will go away. It might cost me money. I would rather die first, or get a divorce first. Who knows where I might end up? I may lose my freedom. I might hurt my back. I might lose my friends. It might hurt my image. And on and on the list goes. Do you recognize some of these as the ways you resist? Look for the resistance in these examples: A client came to me because she was in a lot of pain.
She had broken her back, and her knee in three separate auto accidents. Yhet she was late, got lost, and then was stuck in traffic. Her contact lenses began to bother her. She wanted to sit in another chair. She had to go the bathroom. Then her lenses had to come out. I could not keep her attention for the rest of the session. It was all resistance.
I discovered her sister also had broken her back twice, and so had her mother. Another client was an actor, a mime, a street performer, and quite good at it. He bragged about how clever he was at cheating others, especially institutions. He knew how to get away with almost any thing, and yet he got away with nothing. He was always broke, at least a month behind in the rent, often without a telephone. His clothes were tacky, work was very sporadic, he had lot of pains in his body, and his love life was zilch.
Of course, with what he was giving out, no good could come into his life. He had to stop cheating first. His resistance was that he was not ready to let go of the old way.
Leave Your Friends Alone Too often instead of working on our own changes, we decide which of our friends needs to change. This, too, is resistance. In the early day of my work, I had a client who would send me all her friends in the hospital. Instead of sending them flowers, she would have me go to fix up their problems. This was before I learned never to work with anyone unless he or she requested it.
Sometimes clients come to me because a friend has given the session as a present. When something works well for us, we often want to share it with others. But they may not be ready to make a change at that point of time and space.
I push my clients because they come to me. I leave my friends alone. Mirror work Mirrors reflect back to us our feelings about ourselves. They show us clearly the areas to be changed if we want to have a joyous, fulfilling life. I ask people to look in their eyes and say something positive about themselves every time they pass a mirror.
The most powerful way to do affirmations is to look in a mirror and say them out loud. You are immediately aware of the resistance and can move through it quicker. Use it often for affirmations and to check where you are resisting and where you are open and flowing. Now look in a mirror and say to yourself.
What old belief are you holding on to? This is not a time to scold yourself. Just notice what is going on and what belief rises to the surface. That is the one that has been causing you a lot of trouble. Can you recognize where it came from? The need corresponds to some belief we have. The, before the day is up, we have the piece of cake, smoke the cigarettes, sy hateful things to the ones we love, so on. Trying to eliminate the symptom without working on dissolving the cause is useless.
The moment we release our will power or discipline, the symptom crops up again. When the need is gone, your will have no desire for the cigarette or the overeating or the negative pattern. One of the first affirmation to use is: The webs we create around ourselves need to be unwound. If you have ever untangles a ball of string, you know that yanking and pulling only makes it worse. You need to gently and patiently unravel the knots.
Get help if you need it. Above all, love yourself in the process. The willingness to let go of the old is the key. That is the secret. Every outer effect is the natural expression of an inner thought pattern. To battle only the outer effect or symptom is wasted energy and often increases the problem. After all, procrastination is one way to keep us from getting where we say we want to go.
Most people who procrastinate will spend a lot of time and energy berating themselves for procrastinating. He had been the baby of 18 children, and he came last on the list of getting. Even now when someone had good fortune, he would not rejoice with them. Instead he would say. Self-worth opens Many Doors A client who was 79 came to me. She taught singing, and several of her students were making television commercials.
I trust the process of life. Forgiveness Means Letting Go of the Past 3. Louise Hay claims that your mind and your body are connected, in such a way that all of your experiences are actually just a mirror of your innermost beliefs.
A lot of the problems you experience in your present are actually remnants of the past. Supposedly, her violent stepfather Ernest Carl Wanzenreid physically abused her, and a neighbor raped her when she was merely 5 years old! The best way to do this is by forgiving those the anger against whom holds you back.
