Can the Past Strangle Your Personal Power? #releasethepast #spiritualadvice #personalpower #newthought

You awaken at 5:30 a.m., before the sun rises, before anyone in your life rises, to be alone with God. What awakes with you is a memory, an old friend, something that pretended to comfort you in the past. The old friend seemingly helped you get even, regain self-esteem from a personal attack that wounded you.

Your old friend, the past, didn’t come to comfort you but to prevent you from creating good and positivity with your God Mind. Your past is strangling the power that would have been unleashed into the universe had you actually sat with God in the silence. But, instead, you chose to visit your friend who literally squashed your truth into nothingness and broke the promise you made to yourself to give up your past.

This is one of the issues of our spiritual age with which we struggle. How do we untie and let go of the anchor that keeps us bound to the shore of humanness, when we could be sailing freely in the ethers with Spirit?

Intellectually we know the Truth. Why does the Truth not always set us free in circumstances that relate to the past, especially past relations that went awry? Why are we holding on to dreams, ideas, and memories of the past that never served us, not even during the time we were living them?

In your human brain are many connections called neural pathways. When an incident happens in your life that impacts you or is similar to another bad situation a neural pathway is triggered. With this trigger comes the same emotions, the same body temperature, the same anger, and even the same physical feelings as when you were first hurt.

This particular kind of mental incident is not as strong as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress) but mimics it in a lot of ways, especially because it seems to supersede our thinking minds and goes directly to the frontal cortex of the brain, which contains most of the dopamine-sensitive neurons in the cerebral cortex.

The dopamine system is associated with reward, attention, planning, and motivation. Dopamine tends to limit and select sensory information. From this idea, we can see that a memory may flood the frontal cortex of the brain with “reward behavior,” which could keep us locked in this “dopamine” feeling, almost as if in an addictive trans, while we are remembering the story of our past and how we “could have” reacted to save our souls from the harm.

The question is: How do we get out of this trans long enough to get back to our Spiritual Power that always exists within, even during these setbacks from our spiritual purpose?

This has been your thorn in the flesh for a very long time. It is connected to the moments in your childhood when you were helpless, in an abusive situation, and had only your innocent mind to create a place of solace. So, too, this small guy or girl (the inner child) is still operating in your life until you rescue it from the hell fires of the past.

How do you do that successfully?

The part of your Mind that can save you is the same part that gets stuck in your humanness—the observer side of the brain, which connects with the powerful Universal Mind of God. When you discern that you walk down a dark pathway toward reward-revenge behavior, you must rescue yourself, because no one else can, not even God. We have been given a decision maker that is ours to empower us and use in times like these. I call it my adult-boss mind.

When I discover I am on the wrong path or on a path that is limiting my good, I begin by placing my hand on my heart and encouraging my humanness. I tell it that I have heard its need for comfort and power. I tell my inner child what it needs to know to step away from the past feelings of revenge:

“You are and have always been connected to the mighty and powerful Mind of God. You were created in Its image. This Mind is in you and operating as you now. You can choose, in this moment, to let go of the past, which may have served you and protected you then, but no longer serves you now. Or you can sit in your old story for a while longer. Know this, though, you are in the hands of Creative Mind, a power that can give you new life, a new beginning, a new, powerful future, should you choose to believe and let go from the past right now!”

This year, if you desire to commit to a change for a New Year’s Resolution, do it with your MIND first. Remember, as in the title of my new book coming out just in time to help you with this (in March)… lol… that all change happens in your mind, first. You must change your Old Story, to make a consistent and long lasting change in Your Life.AjpegKindleUS

Why Are So Many of the World’s Icons Dying? #prince #spiritualadvice #michaeljackson #whitneyhouston #newthought

“I’m in shock!” the first post revealed, which included a sad face. I knew immediately someone had died, not just anyone, a famous icon. Then, as I read on, my friends—via Facebook—began to explain the story, concluding with the Nightly News and this morning’s web announcement about his drug overdose treatment.

Prince, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Karen Carpenter, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, Andy Gibb, Bob Marley… In the past couple decades 47 young musicians have died before their fans expected. What is very interesting is how people react as if they actually knew the singer personally.

It appears that when artist’s work touches the heart of a human being, they connect with such a bond that they let their fragile hearts merge with someone—a safe someone who can’t hurt them—as if the artist knows them in an intimate way. The media constantly barraging us with their personal information doesn’t help our desire to connect in ways we probably should not. We continue to feel we are an integral of their personal lives, when we simply are not.

I am probably one of the very few people in the world that couldn’t even hum one of Prince’s songs. I was surprised when I heard a version of “Purple Rain,” and I didn’t even recognize the melody. This has allowed me to stand apart from the crowds and observe.

As the news spread faster than a gasoline fire in all of these cases, the grief came at us as large as an earthquake disaster. In fact, on the Nightly News, the first five minutes last night were about Prince. Ten minutes later we heard about the world’s devastating earthquakes and floods killing many in Texas. Again, I pause to observe the world and its peculiar behavior.

Even though I knew almost nothing about Prince, I was quick to spread the news to the first five people I talked to after I found out. I was shocked to hear the words coming out of my own mouth. My mother was the first. She shared with me how much she liked Prince.

“Really?” I asked. “What do you know about him?”

“Well, he was always so well dressed, and no one ever said anything bad about him. I mean he was never into any drugs or anything.”

We see in these icons what we want to see, I guess. If we need to have someone to admire, chide, or secretly love, we have these larger than life stars to depend on to sweep us away from our mundane lives.

We spend so much time wondering whom they marry, when they are arrested for traffic violations, caught up in arguing with a lover, or having a child? Does it really matter to our own lives? Or do we simply not have enough life to matter to ourselves?

Honestly, I believe we’ve invested in these artists because their music touched us, but mostly because we have not invested enough in our own lives. We fantasize about being them and having their lavish lives.

The reality is that our own lives seem miniscule in comparison. I guess I have been fortunate enough to have known or have been a practitioner to a few movie stars, sports icons, and singing divas. Trust me, their lives are much harder, much crazier, than you could imagine. Often they can’t sleep at night because they are afraid of disappointing millions. They have eating disorders because they can’t eat like normal people; otherwise they will get fat and lose their appeal. They can’t love and divorce like others, because public scrutiny will kill the very love they have been trying to get from the masses of people they cater to, but can never attain. Why, because the love of all of the people clapping for them will never be enough to fill the void.

You wonder why they turn to drugs. This is why?

Their lives are exactly like yours, however. Their problems are the same. They are simply magnified by social media and news reporters who need something to talk about, someone to make fun of, anyone to scrutinize for the next talk show.

Honestly, I’m tired of all of it. I’m going to focus in on what’s important today. I’m going to tend to my life and the lives of those who need my help.

Getting Older & #Staying Relevant #spiritualadvice #relationshipadvice #newthought #ageism

Besides our waning health, loosening skin, loss of interest in current music, and enjoying sitting and doing nothing more than ever, can you say that your life as someone who is growing older is still relevant?

Just a mere 20 years ago, the average male would live 10-15 years after retirement and a woman would live about 5 years longer than that. Now these figures have almost doubled. We are either taking better care of ourselves or modern medicine is interceding and taking better care of us. Nonetheless, we must look at the second stage of our lives as an Encore Career rather than retirement, otherwise we won’t stay relevant in a world that insists we have a voice and a purpose to stay among the living.

What is older anyway? I feel younger than ever in my mind and heart, even though I’m 55. I look at myself in the mirror and see that the only difference in myself is the gray hair. That wouldn’t even be there if my acting agents didn’t think I was a silver fox and wanted me to get older roles. Interestingly though, as a result of living with my salt and pepper hair has made me embrace getting older in a new way. I like it more than I expected. I feel more appreciated and honored in a world that expects professionals to have more experience.

Just feeling young doesn’t mean that our lives are relevant. We look at the millennials with all this energy and the desire to fight for causes. I, on the other hand, would rather give money than go out and fight. I think my fighting-for-causes days are over. However, I can stay relevant in different ways.

One very important way to stay relevant is to be able to connect with our youth in a way that steers them in the right direction without annoying them. One of the most important parts of my life is being a role model for the young people around me. I love them and try hard to allow them in my life more than ever. This way, I know that what I share in my blog and in my books from my years of hard knocks has been worth it. The youth get it in a way and can pass it on in a way that I never did when I was younger.

What about the children? This is a question I hope we ask ourselves as we get older. How is our life impacting them? How can we make our truth available for those who want to learn?

Can you start a class? Can you reach out to your grandkids? Can you mentor a young person? I’m sure you can think of other wonderful ways to keep your important life lessons alive!
