New Thought, New Outcome

Nothing in your life ever appears without first being a thought in Mind. Let me introduce this concept of with a #New_Thought_a_New_Outcome.

The Mind is not your brain. The brain is a functioning organ in the human body. The Mind has no boundaries. The brain helps each individual take the ideas of Mind and make those ideas personal. However, the Mind is powerful beyond knowledge. If you can capture the power of your own Mind, you can change your life and everything around you.

I liken this idea, metaphorically, to a Director deciding to produce a play. He or she finds a subject matter of great importance. Knows the story well enough to imagine the characters, the place from which it is staged, and is able to see the beginning, middle, and end with precision. When it is time to Produce the Show, s/he can easily cast the characters, create the background for the scenes, and direct the energy of the play as he or she conceives it. This play is your idea. The Director is Mind!

Continued from Above:

Rumi says:

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

In other words, in the theory of this Powerful Mind, you are the Director. When something comes up against your ideas or your thoughts about your intended outcome, you do have the power to get rid of those barriers.

For instance, you have conceived of an idea for a business. However, you have had a couple of failed ideas in the past that make you fearful of your own power to succeed. Imagine, however, that you didn’t fail, you simply will use these past attempts at learning the process of being a better businessman.

However, as you have passed through the times of not being able to shape and form and produce something from scratch, you have negative seed thoughts in your human brain that suggest that you may not be SUCCESSFUL again! These are kinds of old fears that you should fight against and win!

In contrast to fears, you may find a stumbling block that is not fear. For instance, you are looking for a business space. Just as you are about to close on the deal, the Lessee backs out. I might think of this kind of instance as Spirit intervening and helping you find a better place.

 

Do you see the difference in the human brain memorizing fearful patterns, the Universal Mind actually helping you find the best place to conduct business? My litmus test for this kind of challenge is: if fear is at the root of the problem, usually your human brain is involved. If your course is altered from something outside of fear, this tends to be the Universal Mind acting on your behalf.

Because there is only One Mind in the Universe, you are part of this individual power. When you get quiet and learn to allow your own brain to cease from deducting and allow your mind to create or envision, then you begin to learn to use this incredible power of the One Mind.

The Buddha says:

What we think, we become.

 

There is no coincidence here that the Master Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is Within.” If you’re an Old Testament kind of person, Proverb 23:7 says the same exact thing: “  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: . . .”

As an aside, the quote from proverb says “a man thinks in his heart.” Since when can a human think from her heart? The heart pumps the blood, but the brain thinks, right? However, spiritually, King Solomon understood that a Powerful God Mind exists in the heart of man, not in the brain of man. When you think with this Heart in your being that is meant for loving, you produce loving results in your life: peace, prosperity, joy.

When you think negative and prideful thoughts with your heart, you will produce a world full of immature thinking that benefits no one but yourself, albeit pride, prejudice, and greed. This is the state of Government now, starting from the top—down to the bottom.

Democracy is about giving power to the whole, not the 1% at the top of the wealthy status. I don’t mean to make this blog about politics, but we are in the middle of the biggest spiritual battle of our lives. Those of us seeking to live our personal lives from one Powerful, Loving Mind are also the same dear ones chosen by God to fight a spiritual war.

We stay vigilant of what happens around us and continue to fight the radical Right. More importantly, though, we must continue to look within to this One Mind for advice and guidance to deflect and counteract the negative spiritual forces of Human Egos.

The only power than can eventually win and overtake the world is Love!

If more of us believe we can win this spiritual war from changing our thoughts, more of us will begin to see the same image as only the One Mind Can: Peace of Earth!

The Sound of Silence: Opus 15

Plenty of people come to my yoga and meditation classes with one question: How do I get the voices in my mind to shut off?

The answer isn’t a simple one, because meditation isn’t about shutting down your cognitive mind. The river of thoughts known as the deductive/cognitive mind practically runs on its own volition. Thoughts move through the mind having many kinds of probable stimulus. You could smell a fragrance and the mind will, on its own volition, follow a thought that reminds you of that smell. You can hear a sound that brings up a recollection of person. Then your mind, again without your help, will move into the neuro-pathway that is connected to that sound. This isn’t of your conscious choosing.

So, the magic to understanding the quieting of the mind is not to stop the thoughts, but to rise above them and observe them. It is in the observation, the human mind and thoughts can be dismissed, like the sound of a young toddler asking a myriad of simple questions you’ve already answered one hundred times. You simply stop paying total attention to them and focus on something else, in this case—the spiritual.

Most meditative practices begin with a focus on the breath. When you make the inhales and exhales 6 counts in and 6 counts out: (1) you let the cognitive mind take control of the reptilian brain and body; (2) you slow down your heart rate; and (3) you lower your blood pressure. All of these things lead to a more relaxed, more empowered you.

The next step you do is to stop the control of the breath after about 3-5 minutes of breath work. When you let your body breathe on its own volition, you begin to learn to watch the inhales and exhales and make your body your own behavior study. You watch your body as if it is someone else. The further you can get from control of the body, the more meditative you’ll become.

Let each limb of your body hang as if it were first being controlled by puppeteer strings, and then cut off completely from the strings. They can’t move because your brain won’t let them. This part of your steering mechanism has been shut down.

Now the last part of a deep meditation is the focus on spiritual movement through the brain and into a positive, compassionate dream. You want to ask your brain to stop telling you what its thinking and begin to express with pictures in an imaginary mirror in front of you or reflecting off of a beautiful lake. Shut down the part of your mind that listens to your thoughts and focus fully on making your thoughts into pictures in front of your. Focusing your attention instead of your eyes as if there is something reflective exactly face to face with you.

When your body quiets enough, the physical eyes will begin to shut down and the mental pictures will begin to appear before you. If you can stay awake during this process, then you are meditating. If you fall asleep, you may have a beautiful dream that can also lead you to spiritual insight, but most yogis would not consider this a meditation.

I hope you have a great practice. Namaste.

Preparing for the Cross—Part Three: Look at Your Past with Compassion

Researching your past is much like me writing my screenplay and doing the research to create a palatable character. What you are now is made of all the parts you were in the past. So, you must ask yourself questions like:

  • What are your social, political, and religious views?
  • Did you development them yourself, or were they placed upon you?
  • Was there some trauma in your past that has changed the way you view the rest of your life?
  • And my favorite question: What part of your human anatomy, fondly resembles your aging relatives? “Is it your belly that looks just like your daddy’s? Or is it your thighs that look just like grandmother?

To make effective change you must discover what part of your thinking is actually yours and what was simply fed to you or done to you. In doing so, you have to sift out what no longer serves your life and replace those ways of thinking with ways that do serve you.
Life is like a threshing floor.

Read the following statement aloud: “I release and let go of all things that no longer serve my life. I am open and willing for change!”
After doing so, check out your body. Were you barely moving your lips? Were your legs crossed, arms crossed, or your lips so tight they are turning white? Clearly, everything you have ever let go of had claw marks in it, right?

Change takes openness. That’s for sure. And commitment. And true authenticity about everything that has happened to you in your past.”

Making a Strong Commitment to Change

Let’s try repeating this bold statement again. Aloud. This time with meaning. With your palms and arms open:
“I release and let go of all things that no longer serve my life. I am open and willing for change.”

Let’s look at some of the questions you can ask yourself concerning your past history:

  1. How did your family life affect you? This is a huge question. But, to undo unproductive thinking, you often have to rediscover your family life patterns, and see how you’re reliving them NOW. No one likes to hear you are acting like your mother or father. But the truth is, sometimes we do. I know I can be a very controlling, just as my dad was, if I don’t watch myself with an authentic and compassionate eye.
  2. What traits are you holding of your parents that you want to let go of today?

To make it easier, Let’s focus on just one trait and make a commitment for change in just this one area for now. There is no better time than now to make this change.

Everyday I hear stories from clients that change me, make me look deeper into my own soul for understanding. When I find myself drifting off into my own head and thoughts, while a client is sharing his or her story, I force myself back into the present moment and listen harder. Why? Because I know that what he or she is saying is probably something I may be avoiding in my own self.

We are all like mirrors to each other. When I look at you or am bothered by you, it’s really you holding up a mirror to a part of me that I am not wanting to look at. And I need to look at that part to become a better person.

I’ve come to believe that if you don’t question your thoughts, you are probably suffering from some mental disorder, most specifically narcissism. This practice of self-exploration didn’t happen over night. In fact, it has taken me many years to realize that all that I have in this world is right here in this moment. I can choose to waste the moment, keep reliving it over and over with the same unproductive thoughts and unproductive actions, or be open and free to experience the next moment of precious life.
