MY MIND GETS IN THE WAY

 

It’s true that we each have limiting beliefs and old mental recordings in our heads on how to live our lives and how to make decisions. After all, we grew up in a society that still values reason and logic over emotion. Since emotion is associated with the Heart, many of us have avoided making decisions from the Heart because we’ve been taught that decisions should not be based on emotion. Many of us were told that making a decision based on what we feel in our Heart is just plain “wrong.”

As a child, I was taught that the only way to make decision was to use logic. When I tried to follow that “rule,” I discovered that my life wasn’t working out for me at all. Not only was I unhappy, but I or my horse, Echo, actually received physical injuries. It was a though the Universe was having to use a 2-by-4 to get my attention that I had taken a wrong turn.

These experiences taught me that I had to learn to live another way – a way that was aligned with my Higher Guidance and my True Path. I was being redirected to my Heart Center. I had to learn a different way to live and find ways to eliminate the old mental tape recordings of messages that kept me from living in my Heart Center.

Over the next few days, I suggest you start noticing the tape recordings in your head that play whenever you think about making a decision based on your Heart. Just notice them. Jot them down if you have a chance, and share them with me if you’d like.

The first step in turning them off is recognizing them when you hear them playing in your head. When you recognize and make note of them, you have already taken the first steps on the path to greater empowerment and greater connection with your Heart Center.

If you are interested in learning ways to free yourself of old messages and limiting beliefs, you might want to attend the free teleclass on “Heart Centered Living: A Transformative Process.”   This link will take you to a page with more details and where you can sign up for the class.

Namaste,

Excuses Begone!

DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK!

 

Dr. Wayne DyerIf you are a fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer, you will definitely want to read his new book and watch the PBS special this summer where Dr. Dyer explains his approach to overcoming the excuses we give ourselves for not living in Joy – for not doing all the things we really want to do – and for staying in old, unproductive, unsatisfying patterns of thinking, feeling,  and behaving.

Isn’t it time for you to make some important changes in your life?  As I said in my previous blog, the energies are supporting you to do it now. 

Message from Wayne Dyer

Excuses Begone! was created out of a belief that entrenched ways of thinking and acting can indeed be eradicated. Furthermore, the most effective means for eliminating habitual thoughts is to go to work on the very system that created, and continues to support, these thinking habits. This system is made up of a long list of explanations and defenses that can be summed up in one word: excuses. Hence, the title of this book is really a statement to yourself, as well as to that system of explanations you’ve created. It is my intention that all excuses be . . . gone!

Excuses Begone! was influenced by my work with the Tao Te Ching. Since the Tao Te Ching taught me what kind of thinking harmonized with my higher self, I asked Lao-tzu for advice on how to change long-established habits of thought. I realized that knowing what to think does not necessarily clarify how to go about changing a lifetime of habitual thinking. Thus, I’ve drawn on Lao-tzu’s wisdom by contemplating his teachings and asking for his guidance on what it takes to bring about a change in the long-held habits of thought that manifest as excuses. Through a process of writing that felt as though I were being directed by a force larger than myself, the Excuses Begone! paradigm evolved.

I’ve taken many people through the seven questions that constitute this exciting new paradigm, and I’ve seen powerful changes take place. By examining the support system that individuals have erected since early childhood, and putting these timeworn thoughts through the seven steps in this paradigm, I find that excuses begin to fade away. They become replaced with thoughts that speak fervently, almost shouting, Yes, you can change any excuse pattern, no matter how long or pervasive the conditioning process has been!

If you’re truly serious about changing any long-established habits of thought that have led you to use excuses as your rationale for staying the same, then I encourage you to follow the practices presented in Excuses Begone!

I have created my ninth Public Television special around the topic of my new book, Excuses Begone!, which will begin airing around the country on June 1. I’m so honored to be associated with Public Television-this year will mark my tenth Anniversary doing public broadcasting programs. We have raised more than $100 million for a great, great cause over these ten years. Through these shows, we’ve helped people to live from a place of integrity, higher consciousness, and spirit. I hope you will enjoy the new show, Excuses Begone!

No More Excuses!!

ARE YOU TIRED OF MAKING EXCUSES?

 

Have you ever noticed how we have all kinds of rationalizations for deciding not to take advantage of new opportunities?  We may also have excuses for everything we continue to do even when those behaviors no longer meet our needs and actually make us uncomfortable.

The Universe has been telling us for some time (at least the last 2 years) that the old excuses (limiting beliefs) won’t work any more.  If you try to push something away that you have kept stuffed down or pushed back in your life for decades, you can no longer keep whatever it is at bay.  This is true for all of us. We are being asked to expand, to grow, to change.

The Ascension Energies are supporting us.  It is time to face up to our limiting beliefs.  It is time to change them into  more expansive concepts and understanding.  The energies that used to let us rationalize and lied to ourselves are gone.  They’ve been replaced by higher frequencies that want us to “be all that we can be” (if you’ll pardon the use of that phrase that has be co-opted by the military – what a distortion – the military doesn’t want creative, think-for-yourself people – it wants people who OBEY ORDERS.)

OK – so you’ve run into a block.  How do you know when you’re blocked?  Are your feeling angry?  Frustrated?  Depressed?  Are you saying to yourself, “Why is it always this way?”  “Why me?”  “This happens over and over again in my life and I’m ‘sick and tired’ of it?”

There are so many teleclasses and programs available today to help you move through this into a new space of internal calm, peace, harmony, satisfaction.  You can harness your fears, angers, frustrations, depression.  You can gather up the power that lives within them and use that power, that energy, to create something else in your life. 

One way to do this is through a Spiritual Empowerment session with me.  (more information is available under the Human Services tab on the home page of my website (http://www.RayOfHealingLight.com). 

Another way is to read a new book that is coming out next week by Wayne Dyer, “Excuses Begone!”  More about this book in my next blog.

The Healing Power of the Heart Center

December 2, 2008 by

Of the 7 major chakras inside the human body, extending from the base of the spine to the top of our head, the Heart Chakra or heart center is the point of transition from lower vibrational frequencies to higher ones.  The major purpose of the Heart Chakra is to help us transform our consciousness from the lower to higher frequency vibrations.  This is most efficiently done in a conscious way. 

The tools of the Heart Center are the emotions that are available there.  Among these are Compassion, Love without conditions, Non-judgment, Forgiveness, Generosity of spirit, and Kindness.  The way to use the Heart Chakra to heal yourself of attachment to old emotions involves a number of steps.

DECIDE THAT YOU WANT TO HEAL

Perhaps you have a grudge you have been carrying around for a long time.   When we carry anger or hatred or jealousy around, it begins to weigh heavily upon us.  It is like carrying a large backpack full of rocks.  With ever step, the backpack makes us waste our energy. 

In addition, when we hold onto an emotion from one situation, it tends to become magnetic and draws to itself more of that emotion.  The pattern of being angry or hating or being jealous tends to expand itself and draws more of the same into its energy.  Your backpack keeps expanding (it has unlimited size) to hold more and more of the same energy associated with many incidents and people over the years.  The energy grows and the weight increases.  Some of us actually are crawling, not walking, but crawling forward in our lives under burdons of our own creation.

So why are you still holding onto old grudges? 

“I don’t want the other person to win,” you might think.

Well, who has really won if you are crawling around beneath the weight of your emotions while the other person or persons are going about their lives feeling just fine?

“I want them to suffer ( — be punished; _________ — fill in the blank).”

Remember, to be empowered means to be in power over yourself.  You can’t change anyone else.  You CAN change YOUR SELF. 

Making the other suffer will not empty your backpack.  Instead, it may add a new emotional component called guilt.  Guilt is one of the heaviest emotions, rivaling lead, I sometimes think.

Remember, too, that everything outside us is a reflection of our inner world.  If you feel you are not worthy of enjoying your life, it’s your feeling – your limited belief – that is holding you back. 

You really don’t have to create a situation in which you say, “I’ll be happy when so-and-so is miserable.” 

What a waste of time and effort!  Do you realize you are giving your power away to the other person by making your happiness depend on that person’s mental/emotional state?

Insead, why don’t you TAKE BACK YOUR POWER?

You DO have the POWER to change your beliefs and feelings.  When you change them, your experience of your life will change.

Imagine that you can just put that backpack down and leave it on the side of the road.  Imagine yourself walking forward in your life with ease and freedom.  You would have more energy.  You would feel lighter.  You would BE lighter.  You would laugh and hop and skip and jump and enjoy life’s journey more.

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? 

ISN’T IT TIME
TO  LET GO OF THIS HEAVY BURDON
YOU HAVE BEEN CARRYING?

ISN’T IT TIME
TO TAKE BACK YOUR POWER AND BE FREE?
