CREATING A LIFE WORTH LIVING Series, by Bo Sebastian #2

Releasing the Old

You can put periods at the end of sentences in your life. You can edit what you may. You can sift through all that you have collected. You can throw out or give away that which no longer serves you. But, in the end, what surfaces in your consciousness is what needs your greatest attention and most likely needs to be released.

Moving to a new home is one of the most terrifying changes anyone can face in life. Moving is even harder than divorce and facing a death of a loved one. Moving changes everything in your life. Every single thing!

* * *

During the days prior to my move to Florida, my heart, sometimes, felt as if the world had tromped on it and given it back to me to be revived. I had been travelling the road of moving for three months, and every day seemed to get more difficult.

One day, however, I decided, the difficulty that I had been perceiving must change NOW! Here’s what I did to make this change happen:

  1. I went through every room in my house and put aside, in a pile, every article of clothing, every kitchen gadget, electronic gismo, and beautiful thing I owned.
  2. I made three piles. One pile to give to someone who was in need, one pile to sell, and one pile to store in a place other than my home.
  3. I took down every piece of artwork and released all gifts that were from any exes in my life and sold them to the highest bidder.
  4. Lastly, I asked some friends for help.

Asking for help was probably the hardest part for me. We all must have our rocks that we lean on, once in a while. Three friends came to my aid the next morning to help me move the rest of the large articles.

What this process did was that it got rid of my extra weight that I had been trying to take with me on my move. So much of what I had gathered in my life was no longer needed or even served me. These articles were simply heavy weight that I needed to purge.

This process was ritualistic and wonderful. I laughed. I cried. Mostly, though, I released feelings and emotions I did not know that had been buried into the simple framework of my nostalgic things.

 Don’t Look Back

When all of my belongings were on the truck, my car had been hooked up to the moving trailer, and every last paper had been finalized for the sale of my house, my soul finally let go.

I got on a plane and headed for Fort Lauderdale International.

The following day, the moving truck arrived at my new home in Florida. My family helped me move into my apartment. I have not looked back since.

Life is amazing every day. I want it to stay this way—totally present, exotically rare, and perfectly wonderful.

I meditate every morning and also pray with fervor. I feel the guidance of Spirit with me 95% of the time. During the times of resistance or fear, I use simple affirmations to get me back on track.

In the following chapter, I will give you definitions and guidance as to the simplest ways to pray and the most effective directions to use the Laws of the Universe to benefit your unique life. Always moving you forward, never backward and with the knowledge of God Principles, you will inevitably surge toward your—individual—perfect path.

THIS SERIES WILL CONTINUE EVERY DAY. I WILL PUBLISH IT AT 10 AM EVERY MORNING FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND LET THEM KNOW IT IS A SERIES THAT WILL CHANGE THEIR LIVES AS IT WILL YOURS.

When You Can’t Speak Up! #simonebiles #MeToo

Yesterday on the news, one of my favorite gymnasts, Simone Biles, shared that she had been sexually abused by the heinous ex-doctor, Larry G. Nassar. #SimoneBiles and some 100 other USA elite gymnasts have spoken out against Nassar who is now in jail for 60 years. He will be going back to court to face another group of accusers very soon. You might be asking yourself: why had it taken superstar Simone so long to speak up about this #sexualabuse ?

I believe that the further up the food chain you climb, the more famous you become, the harder it is to share your truth. Her fear is probably that everyone will say exactly what I’m saying now:  “Why did you wait so long to say your truth? Look, 100 of your best friends have spoken out. Still, you have stayed quiet.”

However, sooner than later, she realizes that fear of this horrible doctor attacking her again is not the culprit of her silence. A light being shone on her vulnerability is probably the reason. She says to herself, you appear to be the strongest, most decorated gymnast in the world. You stand on the top of many shoulders of the people have come before you. If you shake, if you create imbalance, all of this pyramid will crumble. The little girls who admire you will be forced to look at their own fears. Do I really want that? Do I want everyone to know that when you pursue your highest dreams, you may face some ugly demons along the way?

The answer is, of course, yes! Absolutely, you want those without a voice to be the first to know of your hardship on the way up the perilous ladder of success. These little children can’t speak—won’t speak, because of the same fears and guilt you had. So, you must!

I was sexually abused. I had not waited until now to speak. I’d even written a book about it eight years ago called “Learning Alone.”   Read it! Find out about my struggle! You know what? Not many people actually read my book. Do you know why?

It wasn’t popular to speak out. The ones who had stayed silent read it and the book hopefully gave them courage to face their own demons. But most of us don’t want to know about demons and what lurks in the closet of other people—friends and family. If we don’t know, then we can remain guiltless. If we read a book about abuse, we will be held accountable for those around us struggling, this is true!

The reason I share that I haven’t waited until now is because I spoke up when it wasn’t cool to #MeToo. When I knew that people who were in my past would stick up for the people I was accusing. Still, I had to say what was on my heart to clear my pathway forward.

We cannot live in the damage from our past without demolishing the old hiding places and rebuilding the past. This would be like asking Puerto Rico to continue to live in their country under the rubble of the hurricane without any hope of fixing it. Or, worse yet, this would be like asking Puerto Ricans to build a new city on top of the rubble, without power. How stable could that city be? (By the way, this is exactly what is happening in that country.)

“My Best Buddy” by Bo Sebastian

I say all this to place focus on the most vulnerable of all species on Earth, the ones who will never have their own voice, the mute and the mentally incapable, the voices of many species of animals will never be able to fight for themselves. Your dog, for instance, can’t tell you that when you leave for work the neighbor—whom you gave a key to for emergencies—has been sneaking into your home and torturing your puppy. Your pet may show signs of struggle. She may begin to act out. But, she will never be able to point a finger and say these words: “#MeToo”!

So, who is left to speak up for your dog or your cat or your pet bunny or piglet?

As humans, when we begin to grow spiritually, we must begin to look at how we interact with others. If we start with the small things in life, we can observe that not everything that comes from our mouths produces life, support, and love In fact, we often speak poorly about those we see walking among us, even though we know nothing of their struggle and can clearly see a problem exists.

I’ll be the first to admit that I have done this very thing. As a spiritually evolving person, I have to ask myself the hard questions, “What exactly do you expect to gain, Bo, by saying something terrible about anyone? Does this make you feel stronger or better? If so, why?”

When we begin to ask ourselves the hard questions, we come to an even harder questions to answer without remorse: “Why do you feel the need to eat or ingest anything that has been killed and slaughtered to survive?

Do you not know that no man or woman for 1000s of year on Earth ate flesh until after Noah in the Bible?

I painted this while waiting for Hurricane Irma to touch down on Florida.

These people, like Methuselah lived to be almost a 1000 years eating just plants and fruit. Cows, horses and large, strong creatures eat only grass. Why do humans insist on the need to eat dead flesh to be strong? Is it to satisfy their basest desires? Is it because cooked flesh smells like you’ve conquered something? Or does it simply taste good?

As a vegan, what I cook tastes even better than any meat, I guarantee you. Sometimes you wouldn’t even know that what I cook is plant-based. None of us need the guilt of dead animals decomposing in our bodies or even the ovaries and milk from the teets of these animals same animals we ingest, because none of it is meant for our humans.

Yes, this is plant-based burgers, made by Beyond Meat

My doctor said to me about going vegan after blood tests had shown that my blood pressure and cholesterol had sky rocketed: “This is the best choice you can make for your body right now.”

I’m no saint. I had been 25 years a vegetarian when a few medical professionals told me that my arthritis would never get better if I didn’t begin eating beef, which was the meat for my blood type. So, I went 3 years closing my eyes to the harshest bloodshed in the world. Every day, millions of helpless animals are led to the worst lives in factory farms, only to get fat and killed without ever having the chance to live as God created them. Besides this the waste from cows is causing greenhouse gases that harm the Earth.

The first bloodshed for animals was to repent for human sins. It was a symbol for the Savior to come. Yet, so many who believe in the absolute sovereign truth of the Bible will continue to tell you that animals are meant to be eaten. “Well, certain stupid animals, at least,” they may say.

You don’t have to look hard to see signs that some pigs and chickens, for example, are smarter than 4-year-old children. Humans have only their broken legs to stand on when trying to push through this argument to the end. However, just like trying to argue with an Atheist about believing in a Higher Power, you would know that there is no changing a mind that is already made up.

We see this all around us with 45 supporters. They voted for him. They will follow him to his demise, because, gosh darnit, everyone is making up stories about him. Only Fox News is telling the truth. He didn’t really say those horribly racists comments. This is just the democrats or the horrible reporters making something out of nothing.

Of course, a close observer would see what goes through the mind of a 45 supporter is exactly what 45 wants to go through his or her mind. He has primed the pump and created lost sheep of his followers with false evidence. 45 has led the way to brainwashing millions of people on this Earth.

You only have to go to another country, outside of the US, to see that no one thinks that President 45 is good accept crazies like Putin and Kim Yon Death!

This same kind of brainwashing has happened when it comes to Factory Farms and brainwashing the public with commercials about what is and what is not Healthy!

We must speak up for those who can’t speak up! We must continue to fight the hard fight of being a voice in the darkness when it isn’t popular to be that voice. We must stop waiting for 100’s to speak out, first, before we decide we can be strong, too. We always have the right to say our truth! Always!

Help a friend today. Help an animal today. Speak out for justice all around you. I guarantee you’ll feel better for it.

Boldness: How Do You Become Bolder?

I have definitely noticed that I have a lot less fear since I have gotten older. A essential reason exist for this change. When you some becomes older and actually faces the past anxieties, you move through fear in a completely different way in the present.

For instance, with certainty in this moment I know that I am:

  1. Sharing in the One Universal Mind
  2. I am always blessed, because I am made in the image of Spirit God
  3. I am always surrounded by angels who aid me in my human and spiritual issues
  4. I always have the ability to co-create in this universe and change my current situations, or at least I can change how I view or perceive the current situation
  5. With this ability to co-create, I am able to change the course of actions in my life; and in certain situations change the conditional situation in my world.

With this deep knowing, I am able to coerce any negative thoughts in my mind to believe what my heart and my consciousness knows with certainty. When I do this, I can face any challenge in the world. This takes a certain understanding of what is called the Observer Mind.

We know that there is only One Mind. We are all a part of that mind. However there are many diverse individual brains out there with many diverse programs operating in those brains.

The brain is an individual organ in each human body that is either programmed with positivity or negativity or a mixture of both. For instance, if you were an abused child, you can be assured that the neural pathways directing your thoughts will be eschewed from someone who has not been abused. This is science, not spirituality. This is the reason people who have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress) feel as if they cannot change the organic process of their mind. The PTSD thought hits the frontal cortex of the brain before our reasoning mind has a chance to change the thought.

So, we must become a Scientist of our own Minds to make the shift. For this reason, we learn ways to access the voice inside that programs the thoughts during deep, healing meditations and in clinical hypnosis. We can and will change and assert new neural pathways, forging new and more positive thoughts in each human mind as we become more aware of our creative power.

You may have times in your life when you feel inadequate. Who doesn’t? In these moments you must access your truth. To simply speak any truth (usually in the form of affirmations) from the observer self to the physical self or the programmed mind seems like a challenge, especially if you have not experienced the observer mind.

I know this all sounds like a challenge, too technical, and maybe even like malarkey, but the process has been proven to work for millions in hypnosis where we often use the Observer Mind to speak to and communicate to the Physical Brain and the subconscious.

The brain is a part of your human self, a part of your human housing. You are a Spirit that is temporarily housed in a human shell. As a result of this knowledge you can change the trajectory of your life. I know this to be true, because I have done it and watched many others change horrible situations into power blessings by changing the neural triggers in the brain. (Notice I do not associate the brain with the Mind. They are two separate, but symbiotic, realities.)

I have been a hypnotherapist for 28 years. I have seen obese people become thin; smokers become adamant nonsmokers, people with sleep problems enjoy sleep, people who have had relationship problems learn to deal with the relationship with themselves and, in turn, fix the relationship issues in their lives, and the sick become healed. Anything is possible when you understand the basic truths of the universe!

Today, simply focus on one initial truth. Speak this to yourself out loud, if you can, and as you do so, pinch the space between your thumb and forefinger. This will cause a physical trigger to be connected to this thought:

There is only one mind and I am a part of that loving and creative energy.

This entire process is explained in my book: “Your New Story, Your New Life” The Metaphysical Mind.
