Good morning, lovely you!
The crocus are coming up in my neck of the woods. And I am already seeing robins and hearing their lovely evening songs. Spring is here and with it, the promise of new beginnings.
And that brings me to what I want to talk to you about. New beginnings.
You cannot invite new into your life when you are still clinging to the old.
Have you ever been in a toxic relationship? I’m not talking about you had fights once in a while and how they chewed annoyed you. I’m talking TOXIC where you were made to feel worthless, sad and exhausted.
Did you find yourself wishing that things would change for the better? Did you read relationship books and try to make some changes around the house, hoping all of those mini efforts would be the thing to fix the relationship?
But they never did. Because sometimes broken things cannot be fixed. Broken things must be discarded to make way for new things that actually work.
Most of us are living our lives with broken thought patterns. These thought patterns never worked, however, they were given to us already broken.
I’m not good enough.
I’m not smart enough.
I’m a failure.
I don’t deserve nice things to happen to me.
My job is to take care of everyone but myself.
And on and on…
We live with these broken thought patterns and they create every aspect of our lives. And, what do you know, these broken thought patterns tend to create broken lives, which is why many of us have toxic relationships, struggled financially, and faced scary health crises.
Just as we cannot “fix” a toxic relationship by reading a few books, we can never hope to heal from cancer and other debilitating diseases when our broken thought patterns are still allowed to run our lives. It just doesn’t work that way.
To heal, you MUST replace these thought patterns just as you MUST replace the toxic relationship with a healthy one.
Coherence Helps Us Disconnect from the Past
Did you know your brain contained neurological networks that are associated with every memory of your past? The good ones, the bad ones and the really ugly ones?
What happens when we repeatedly think and feel from these bad and ugly memories? They become habitual thought patterns that limit our reality and the infinite possibilities we could choose from for ourselves.
These self-limiting thoughts dictate our lives without us even being aware of it. Like when our computers have been infected with malware. Bad things are happening inside but we’re clueless as to the danger, so we just keep posting to Facebook and Instagram, oblivious to the damage being done.
This is how we become sad, bitter, angry, lonely and sick. Very sick.
In other words, you’ve got to break up with your old thought patterns just like you break up from a toxic partner!!!
So how do you do this? How do you remove your attention from the bad memories and focus on the possibilities of the future?
All possibilities already exist. A healthy you living the life of your dreams already exists in the energy field of pure potential. You simply have to see it, feel it and attract it to you.
This is NOT woo-woo stuff. This is exactly how I meditated 30 years ago when I was diagnosed with cancer. I knew I was living only one version of my life and that there were endless versions in the energy field of ALL THAT IS. My particular broken thought patterns had attracted my sick life to me. But there are plenty of fish in the sea. If you don’t like your life, your relationships, your bank account, your health… then disconnect from your old wounds and memories and tune into the energy field to attract whatever your heart TRULY desires.
Your Brain is Like a Gaming Joystick
Why is meditation so powerful? Because it is a way to shut off your brain for a while so you can go STRAIGHT to the source to receive information instead of receiving it from your senses, which often lie to you.
Think of this human life as a very, very advanced game. We now have Play Station and Nintendo and games that are looking more and more like the real world. In these games you have different pieces of technology that talk to each other to make playing possible. For instance, your joystick talks to the main motherboard and is how you control your avatar inside the game. Without the joystick, your avatar would just stand there, unable to move, run or make any decisions or choices.
There are also virtual reality headsets that connect you to other worlds and allow you to “interact” with the characters and situations you find yourself in.
Well, your brain is a piece of equipment that allows your spirit to interact with this Earthly dimension’s technology. Your brain controls your senses so you can see, touch, taste, smell and hear the virtual world around you. Your brain helps you make choices and decisions, walk, run, etc. Without your brain working properly, you would just lie there unable to do much of anything.
But this Earthly world, while a lot of fun to come and play in, is not the be-all-end-all of existences. If we solely rely on the information our brain and senses offer us, we will be very limited and form limited beliefs.
Our brain can only work by basing everything upon pattern recognition. Our brain literally seeks out familiar patterns that we have previously experienced. This means UNKNOWN information will not be recognized by the brain. All of the infinite possibilities of US are completely lost on the brain, it simply cannot even recognize them.
When we meditate, we suppress brain function, allowing our real mind to access the infinite data that lives in the quantum field. As soon as we still our limited brains, it’s like our receiver can start to pick up all of the stations on the Creator’s radio station. THIS is where our new life, our happy life, our abundant life and our HEALHTY life is currently living. All we need to do is tune out of the broken thoughts and tune into the limitless possibilities.
So you see, when you change your thoughts, you tap into the energy of the quantum field, and you tune into the life you want to be living.
With this sweet approach of spring, it’s time to forgive your past, let it go and embrace a brighter future. Meditation is powerful because it connects you directly into source, God, the creator, the Big Kahuna!
What would you rather be in charge of creating your life? Old, traumatic memories or the creator of all that is who loves you deeply and eternally?
A no-brainer, no?
P.S. One of the best books I have ever read is Dr. Bernie Siegel’s book “Love, Medicine and Miracles.” Get a copy today. https://www.amazon.com/Love-Medicine-Miracles-Self-Healing-Exceptional/dp/0060919833
