Losing My Mind

lost wallet.jpg

It started innocently enough with a short trip to the Post Office. Everything seemed perfect until I realized, before leaving, that I could not pinpoint where I left my wallet.

I looked everywhere in the house, emptied my satchel, combed through my home office, strip searched the car, drove to my University office, and found nothing. I emptied my satchel again and again but found nothing.

Where could I have lost my wallet? Usually I can find a lost item within a few minutes but I really lost my wallet this time.

I began thinking backwards about my day’s activities, and remembered I went to Walmart to buy some supplies. I surmised that I probably left my wallet on the self-checkout counter.

After speeding through the streets to Walmart, I ran to customer service, who pointed me towards the self-checkout counter, and nothing. I talked to management, interrogated a few Walmart employees, and again, nothing.

My wallet was gone.

Now my mind was racing, contemplating all the passwords I needed to reset, new credit cards I would need, new replacements of my identification cards..… AAARRRHHHH

How could I be such an IDIOT and lose my wallet?

I drove back home. Before long, my wife, Julie, was returning home from her evening PRN work. Annoyingly, she asked, “What are you looking for?”.

I sheepishly replied, “Oh, just my wallet!”.

Vaaarooop! Now Julie began an intensive cross examination, “Where did you look? Why do you always lose things? Did you cancel the Credit cards? When are you going to get your head out of your @$$?”.

Timidly, I said to Julie, “I remember putting my wallet in a brown bag with the Walmart supplies”.

Julie retorted, “Do you mean the brown bag twisted around the door knob of the utility door? Mike, it is right here, how did you miss it?”.

Amazingly, my wallet was never lost, and yet I put myself through almost two hours of torment by not seeing something right in front of my nose. Why does this happen?

Would I still be looking for my wallet if Julie didn’t find it?

Is there a deeper, soul fulfilling experience needed to be understood here, or do I simply “need to get to my head out of my ….”? LOL

Just Be

man sitting.jpg

Today, I almost wrote this blog’s title as “Just Be-ing”, the perfect state of consciousness.

‘Just Be’ is a biblical statement, re-counted by Moses in the Old Testament as the ultimate way of living.

Is “Just Be” material wealth, power, prestige, knowledge, and worldly accomplishments?

Or, Just Be-ing?

In the journey toward Just Being-ness, I have found it helpful to repeat the following statement for better living:

“All life comes to me with ease, and joy, [and grace,] and glory”. This is a hybrid statement, partly quoted by Access Consciousness and by adding the word grace to it.

Saying this statement ten times, at least twice a day, (I say it immediately upon waking in the morning and when I am about to go to sleep at night) will help everything in your life steer toward the Good.

“All life comes to me with ease and joy and grace and glory.”

So now, after reading my past two blogs, you are armed with two compelling questions: “What else is possible? How does it get any better than this?”; and, a powerful, life altering affirmation: “All life comes to me with ease, and joy, and grace, and glory.”

Armed with these, you can make your life the changes you wish to see in the world, as Gandhi dictates.

Testing…1…2…3…

The Founders of Access Consciousness, a process created by Gary Douglas and Dr. Dain Heer, suggest a fascinating technique that is a wonderful tool for improving your everyday life.

Consider saying this, regardless of circumstance:

“How does it get any better than this”? or “What else is possible”?

Sound too simple? It is simple, but it is powerful. Try testing for results this weekend!

Fundamentally, these questions are a short prayer asking how your situation could improve, and ALLOWING Spirit to arrange things in your life to manifest results.

Spoiler alert- it always gets better.

Trust it. This is a game changer.

Ask constantly with the expectation that circumstances can always get better.

The more you do it, the quicker better conditions “show up”!

Our Benevolent Spirit loves to work in and through us. All you have to do is ASK.

How does it get any better than this?

Enjoy your weekend. All is well.

What’s In Your Cup?

coffee spilled.jpg

“You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you, making you spill your coffee everywhere.

Why did you spill the coffee?

You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup.  Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea.

The point is, whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen), whatever is inside you will come out.

It is easy to fake it, until you get rattled.  So, we have to ask ourselves, “what’s in my cup?’

When life gets tough, what spills out?

Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility? Or does anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions come out?

You choose!

Today, let us work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation, kindness, gentleness and love for others.  Author unknown

So how about you, what is in your cup?”

Reflection Of

mirror-2

Remember the last time you were insulted or belittled?  How did you react?

Usually, we react by defending, dismissing, disengaging, retaliating, arguing or any multitude of negative reactions.

Recently, I was publicly insulted, but I ignored the comments. Later on my drive home, I blew up and let the person “have it”.

Imagine how I was alone in my car arguing, defending my honor, and hurling insults at that person in my mind. Thank goodness, no one heard one word of my ranting and venting.

However, someone did hear it- My Self.

This is not my personality self, but my higher Self, my Soul.

In my fourteen years as a wellness facilitator, I have become well versed in our need for balance in the body, mind, and spirit to enjoy good health. That means even though the above scenario was only in my mind, nevertheless, I mentally, physically, and spiritually hurt myself.

The principle of reflection offers: change only yourself. Life is a mirror where we find ourselves reflected in the people around us.

We honor ourselves most when we bless our enemies and forgive them, which seems simple in principle, but is difficult to perform. I know I learned a lesson about my big fat ego; it always wants to protect me, but in the end, its tactics hurt me.

As Wane Dyer describes, the definition of ego is Edging God Out.

Many spiritual teachers instruct that taming the ego opens the road to wisdom.

Perhaps the best manner of taming the ego is to “Bless your enemy and…rob him of his ammunition….” (Florence Shovel Shinn).

After all, when we are screaming at somebody in our mind, who is the real Dumbo-head?

 

Back in the Saddle Again

morning

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

Are you feeling the “Aarrrrh” of having to go to work today? Do you marvel at how quickly time flies on a long weekend, but crawls so slowly throughout the week?

If you are hoping for a little “Giddy-Up” for the days, weeks, and months ahead, perhaps a Miracle Morning Program could help.

My son introduced me to The Miracle Morning book by Hal Elrod, claiming the program is helping him to be more efficient and effective, even with his hectic schedule.

One of my favorite quotes in the book has stuck with me throughout each day, “The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your habits”.

How true! “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are headed” says Loa Tzu

As subtitle of the book states, “The not so obvious secret guaranteed to transform your life”, the program helps you begin an early morning ritual that soon becomes a daily habit.

I proud to follow Miracle Morning Program and do it every day, even on long holiday weekends.

If you decide to jump in the program, you will watch your own Miracle Morning habits develop into elevated energy and enthusiasm.

Judging the Dumbo-Heads

Most of us are guilty of judging what we believe is wrong behavior. Perhaps we judge, hoping that somehow by verbalizing our discontent, the wrong behavior will change.

Of course, that is one of life’s great myths.

By expressing our anger, we usually just get angrier and run the risk of establishing anger as a habit.

Have you also noticed that pointing out disapproval usually causes more resistance? An old saying comes to mind, “What you resist persists” (Carl Jung).

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself”, writes Wayne Dyer.

scales of justuce

Judging, criticizing, and complaining creates life-depleting chemicals in the body opening the way for sickness and disease. You can find more about this idea in the book Mind to Matter by Dawson Church.

When we judge somebody by our thoughts, our words, our feelings, and our actions, it sticks to our body and weakens us.

Jesus gave us the command: “Judge Not”! (Matthew 7:1)

That is good advice if we desire health on the physical, mental, and spiritual level.

When we refrain from judging on all levels, we are creating a happier, healthier more fulfilling life. This is a promise in both science and spirituality.

Perhaps we can create a new trend, and instead of judging the world’s Dumbo-Heads for their silly behavior, we simply “Bless them” (Romans 12:14).

As Gandhi suggested, if we choose this noble path, our lives will begin the change we want to see in our world.

Attitude of Gratitude

grateful

Quantum science states that whatever you focus on—E-x-p-a-n-d-s—. Following this principle, focusing on sadness will only cause sadness to consume you.

If the average person believed that to be true, why would he ever watch the depressing news or disgraceful reality shows? Why would he criticize, condemn, or complain?

“In daily life, we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy” (Unknown author)

An attitude of gratitude improves life, but also requires us to focus on the Good by continuous thinking, speaking, feeling, and acting with thankfulness and appreciation.

However, there are three common obstacles to this Attitude of Gratitude:

  • Faultfinding
  • Complaining
  • Taking what you have for granted

This week, let us decide, as much as possible, to only focus on the Good. Let us make it a point to be more grateful and less judgmental.

Share with more people how much you appreciate them and notice how your mood elevates, how your day seems brighter, and how you begin to focus more on gratefulness and appreciation.

Believing It In

After reading my previous blog, I Create My Day, wouldn’t it be appropriate to ask ourselves what really want to create?

Do we even know what we want?

Maybe these sage words can help: Be clear in your mind exactly what you want to happen!

  • “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18).
  • “Imagination is more important than knowledge” (Einstein).
  • “If you dream it, you can do it” (Disney).
  • “If you do not have a vision, you are going to be stuck in what you know, and all you know, is what you have already seen” (Iyanla Vanzant).

Believing in it

Quantum Physics dictates that our behaviors always match our intentions, and that our actions are always the results of our dominant thoughts.

To me, that means if we want to change the circumstances in our life, we have to change our thoughts, our intentions, and our beliefs.

After all, a belief is just something we think about over, and over, and over again until it becomes our conviction, our belief.

Jesus said, “…all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23)

Today, let us take the next step and, with certainty, realize exactly what we want to happen in our lives. Maybe it is as simple as an Avett Brothers song suggests: “Decide what to be, and go be it”.

Or, is it more magical, by first creating your day and then believing it in?

I Create My Day

Dr. Joe Dispenza first discussed this message in the movie The Secret, explaining how each morning he would influence the events of his day through meditation, prayer, and imagination.

He says that we create our minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years through conscious and unconscious thinking.

Dr. Dispenza is essentially suggesting that the World does not happen to You, You happen to the world.

Consider the following, which all tell the same story:

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Dr. Wayne Dyer

“If you change the way you see yourself and the world, the self and the world you see, changes.” David Cameron

“There is no world apart from what you wish to see, change but your mind and what you want to see, and the world MUST change accordingly.” Course in Miracles

All are saying the same; we can control the quality of our lives much better through deliberate creation techniques like meditation, prayer, and imagination. How this is done will be explained in future Blogs.

The first step that we recommend, however, is to ponder how you view yourself and how you view the world. Both views will shape the story of your life.
