What Is Your Story as of Today?

I wrote a book a couple of years back called “Your New Story, Your New Life.” The premise of the book lies in the idea that we #create_your_story everyday of your life. If you believe this and follow my directions on how to use your creative energy to change the negativity in your life, you will soon see your life blossom into something you only thought you could dream of.

My book, I would come to find out, was prophetic of my own life in the coming years. Last evening, my hubby and I were listening to a YouTube podcast about spirituality last night. The lecturer, Scott Mandleker, spoke about how most people on this earth right now, don’t like their jobs, their chosen mates, their homes, their life situations, their relationships. In fact, he said that almost a huge % of people dislike 2 of the 5 aspects of their lives, everyday, every moment.

After listening, Dave and I chatted about the impact the talk had on us, which is our usual course of action, before we prayer together. This is our nighttime ritual before sleep. Personally, I was taken by the fact that most people don’t like their lives or certain aspects of it. My first thought, though, was that I loved each part of my life, especially the parts Scott mentioned that most people hate.

I also remember thinking that there had been times in my recent past that I didn’t like a few aspects of my life. I asked myself and David what it was that he thought changed in the past few years that made the huge shift in both of our lives. (David also confided that he didn’t like his job, lack of relationship, and much of what he felt in his recent past was a stagnancy with lack of hope.)

Obviously, we realized that the #SHIFT BEGAN. Before we ever dated, we became prayer partners. Our lives immediately began to shift almost everyday. Dave was so shocked at how quickly his life began to turn around that he began to commit to the prayer even more. I had already written my book, but it wasn’t published. In fact, Dave was the one hired to design and create the book cover. Even though I believed everything that I had written in the book, I hadn’t seen the powerful work that prayer could do to change even the most miniscule parts of my life that weren’t to my exact liking.

When I first moved to Florida I was in a place where I had no idea what I wanted to be “when I grow up.” I literally put down my own spiritual paint brush and asked God to inspire a new vision for me, one that would create 100% happiness everyday in my work, in my relationships, in my family, and in my living situation.

When I think of where I started and where I am now, I believe that every seed that Dave and I had planted into the celestial garden of Spirit has not only grown, but has begun to bear much fruit.

For instance, We often prayed for prosperity. We didn’t pray for the kind of prosperity that is too much for any one person. We simply wanted to be taken care of and have some left over to give as we pleased and at least go out to dinner a couple of times a week. When we look at our financials, this year we have made 4x more this past four months than we did this time last year. FOUR times more! That’s huge.

Now, this is not to say that we haven’t opened scary doors that sometimes frightened us because we didn’t understand where they might lead. But our goal was always to encourage each other to open every positive door and see where God would take us. As a result, we have had the ride of our lives. Another example of this is: I had started painting as a hobby and a fun thing to do with my husband. In only a few months, I had sold 5 paintings. This is just an example of doing what your heart is inspired to do, inspite of your fears.

Dave, too, has had quite the reversal where his work has taken him. When he lived in Dublin, Ireland, he had worked in a job that never really served his higher purpose for so long that he began to feel that life would always be rough in this aspect of his life. It was hard for him to dig himself out of the hole he dug for himself, where work was concerned.

When we began praying together, within a month the company he worked for literally closed their doors. He was pushed out of the door and into life by a few of his helper angels, I’d say. Though scary, this was the best thing that could have ever happened in his life. This release of that job and a severance package is what led him to come to the states for a couple of visits. Of course, this is when we fell in love.

The rests is history.

My thought here—and I hope it’s your thought too—is that you can change your life today. You may need some support to help you in your prayer life, as I did. But this is also something you can pray for and ask Spirit to lead you to. Had I not said to Dave at the very beginning of our work relationship (he was going to design the cover of the exact book that I was talking about at the beginning of this blog), we would have never had the opportunity to commit each day to prayer, sowing seeds of truth into the spiritual world of thought… where all life and dreams begin.

As I have often said to my spiritual students, “You sow the seeds into the spiritual consciousness, and God grows the plant. This is the same action and metaphor that happens with an actual seed for any plant or flower. Plant it! Take care of it (with positive and hopeful thoughts)! The result is a beautiful and lovely flower, plant, or fruit tree that takes a little longer, but will bear fruit for many years.

HELP IS ONLY A PHONECALL AWAY. I am a life coach and spiritual coach. I work in person and online through Skype or FaceTime. The cost is minimal considering that your life will change exponentially when you begin this kind of spiritual work. I combine coaching with powerful hypnosis techniques that will teach you to meditate and enrich your prayer life in ways you never imagined.

Call today for an appointment: 954-253-6493

If you can’t afford an appointment, I’ll work with you on the cost. No one should be without spiritual advice and someone to help them to the next step spiritually.

Also, please read over blogs on this site that may lead you to some awareness you may not have known before. Of course, one of my books will help as well.

I pray you will never stop asking, and especially consider your asking for help a gift!

Namaste and much blessings.

Creating a Life Worth Living Series #4, by Bo Sebastian

The Results of Old Thoughts

Old thoughts that live inside of your brain turn ideas—bad or good—into what is currently going on in your life. So, when anything happens to you, in a moment, your brain infuses the new experience with your old attachment to it. Then, you respond and react.

For instance, you may be in a loving relationship, right now. But after your brain infuses your anxiously-attached past with loving actions, you may become insecure, even in the arms of someone holding you.

Another example: You may have a perfectly good evening out with friends. But, your brain has a fearful moment, coming from a time when you had been rejected. So, after your brain infuses this old experience with what is currently happening, you may end up sitting in the corner by yourself, feeling unworthy and unliked.

What takes more precedence about anything going on in your life, right now, is what you think about it.

Updating Your Mind

Continuing with our computer metaphor: If the monitor is not turned on, the computer of your brain cannot show you the stored information therein. So, we must begin by turning on the monitor. This happens in meditation.

In meditation you separate your current ideas from the ones dwelling in your humanness—brain and body. This creates a window to the brain, like the computer monitor, allowing you to self-reflect.

Then, if a thought does not line-up with what you believe about yourself, you will know that you must UPDATE that old thought or pathway.

You must stand apart from the Old Story to see what needs changing in the mainframe of your brain.

Your brain may need a major update to coincide with your current lifestyle, thoughts about yourself, and your beliefs. This is much like updating your computer with the newest software, so that the current programs on your computer will run smoothly.

* * *

In the coming pages you will begin a courageous walk that will completely change your mind about life. You will gain the power to UPDATE THOSE OLD THOUGHTS stored in your mind.

Though, in theory, this all sounds psychological; the practice of changing your thoughts depends a great deal on your self-reflection and, ultimately, your ability to apply Spiritual Principle to your problems.

A malfunction in your physical brain may affect interpersonal relationships, your relationship to your job, and your relationship to yourself—based on traumatic or insecure-attachment events in the developmental stages of childhood. As I said in the past section, this disorder may incline you to respond in one way to a situation, even though the circumstance may well deserve a different response.

In other words, situations that mirror an old event from your childhood, may cause a misfire if you do not consider the idea of Updating Your Mental Software with immutable, sound Spiritual Law.

When you have misfires in your brain, what you see on the monitor of your life is much different than what you imagine should exist from the actions you take and reactions to your life’s situations.

These conflicting thoughts can be very confusing and cause you to be insecure and anxious about life, in general.

When what appears on the monitor of your life is actually a triggered response or an instinctual reaction—a fight or flight human reaction—you begin to mistrust your own mind to make the correct and just decisions.

Because of this misappropriation and confusing network of thoughts and information filtering all of your life through the past, you have to do some basic work to discover what thoughts and ideas have been imposed upon you, and which of these thought-triggers need to be erased and changed.

Definition: Subconscious is the part of your mind that is beneath your conscious reasoning, the undercurrent of your belief system, and the storage center for the past.

Note: I will use the term subconscious only to refer to the working patterns of the human brain. I purposely intend not to confuse the word MIND with the word BRAIN. The two are vastly different.

The mind is infinite; the brain is human.

NEW SERIES by Bo Sebastian: CREATING A LIFE WORTH LIVING

Your Story is an amalgam of all that you believe and feel about yourself—right now. This same story expresses in every daily decision, in what you desire to become, and in whom you presently attract to your life.

The good news is:

  • You are the writer and director of Your Life’s Story;
  • You can carefully choose the plot;
  • At anytime, you may rewrite your story to become a more positive and prosperous one;
  • You can change your atmosphere and surroundings; and
  • Rearrange, add, or delete any of the characters.

 

As you take control of your life, Your New Story will be equal to or greater than any amazing future you could have ever imagined! This series is going to show you how to accomplish this change.

A Personal New Beginning

I decided to take a huge leap of faith and move my entire life and business to southern Florida to be nearer to my family and start over in so many—much needed ways. During this time of transition, I sat quietly more than I had in my entire life, asking for guidance.

I dreamed and created in my mind, sometimes spontaneously, and other times with fear, looking at new possibilities for the future. Daily, I would create thoughts that soon would grow in my body as powerful emotions, which drove me forward to my new future.

I wanted to be sure, though, that as I dreamed, I would set a path clear of old behavior patterns—and even clearer of past relationships that had no longer served me. To this end, I took specific steps, spiritually, mentally, and physically to dissolve all of the negative patterns—including the fear that I had often carried with me into my dreams.

As this series unfolds, I will share these same ideas that I have used to promote effective change in my life. As the principles I used are unchangeable, immutable Spiritual Laws, I know with certainty that these instructions will help you, as they guided me, to keep the page turning to your new life.

This means, no more rewriting… rereading… and recapitulating the PAST. From this moment—right here and right now—Your New Story begins!

God Tools

God or First Cause created the entire manifest universe on the foundation of Pure Love, in Divine Order, and by means of the Perfect Law of Creation. If you always start with the foundation of Love to grow any dream in your life, you will begin by mirroring God, the Creator of All.

What better example could we use to create good in our lives, than from the Creator?

A blueprint of your future is a perfect first step toward change. But, that blueprint will find its way to manifestation quicker if it is already supported by and built with the loving thoughts inspired by God and based on Divine Principles. Why is this so?

You can easily plant the seeds of your future. But, you cannot go into the soil and grow anything without Divine Love in action.

Learning how to do your part in this creative process is paramount in your success to creating a new and powerful life.

Your thinking brain plays a very important role in getting you to your goal. But it must play the subordinate role to the Laws that God created from the beginning of time. Learning the Foundational Principles of Divine Love will help you begin to create with the matter and in the form by which the Creator intended.

The Nature of Change

Webster says that change means: to make or transform completely. Change is not often something that happens spontaneously. Think about the journey of the caterpillar. It crawls on its belly for a long while, skirmishing about in the dirt, before it ever climbs a tree and spins its cocoon. Whenever it moves into silence, the transformation begins.

God, through the science of nature, metabolically changes and rearranges every cell of the caterpillar to become a flying creature. We know that this entire journey is instinctual in an insect.

The metaphor for humans to transform, however, takes a decision to change and also requires willingness. We must use the same self-thinking brain that God gave humans to say YES to the transformation process.

The only part of the process of your metamorphosis that is yours to do is to provide the willingness to climb the tree of change and spin the web of your dreams into God Consciousness.

It is with your willingness that you allow Spirit to begin this miraculous change in you, through you, and AS YOU.

The miracle of change begins in the moment you choose to stop spinning your web and rest in the truth that what you have planted WILL CERTAINLY GROW IN DUE TIME. It is then that Creator God manifests the incredible power of metamorphosis.

* * *

A very large, green, speckled caterpillar climbed up behind the gutter of my house and spun a huge web. I watched it for a long while as its cocoon appeared to weather with the seasons.

After many weeks, I arrived home from teaching a yoga class on a spiritual high. The butterfly had eaten its way out of the cocoon. The fledgling, winged creature was almost as large as a hummingbird. It crawled up the side of the house and began to spread its beautiful, ornate wings. I had never seen a butterfly so large and exotic in my entire life. I felt privileged just to be a witness to such an event.

The butterfly fluttered its wings a few times, but seemed to be afraid to take off. I put my finger out. It hopped onto my hand without hesitation. I gazed down at it with wonder and delight, walking to my front yard. I talked to it as if it were a small child, “Come on! You can do it. Try to fly!”

The butterfly flapped and flapped its ornate, silken wings and jumped a bit. Then, I said, “Ready?” and I whisked it up, toward a tree branch.

Instead of landing on the branch, though, it simply flew away, higher than most birds. I never saw it again. I never saw a butterfly as beautiful as that again, even in butterfly sanctuaries all over the world.

I discovered, later, that my amazing butterfly was not a butterfly at all. It was a gorgeous, rare species of a moth. This moth represents you—wonderful and unique YOU—ultimately, ready to fly!

Personal Challenges

Facing your present challenges is the first key to moving forward with a new life. Change can feel uncomfortable and peculiar. Facing negativity may feel physically challenging. As you adopt change, what comes up in your mind may even express painful and scary thoughts. But ultimately, you will find that change happens more rapidly in response to the amount of your own willingness to accept EXACTLY what is in front of you—right now.

Change must organically come from the core of your own being. For instance, when you want to lose weight, you must have a great reason or you will succumb to the many ways you can cheat on a diet.

Personally, I tried four different diets, before I ever discovered what it would take for me to lose weight. My old story was that I had always been skinny. People would make fun of me and tell me to gain weight. As I look back at old pictures of myself from a young age, I do appear emaciated from the age of fifteen to thirty.

After age thirty, though, extra weight snuck up on me. One day at the gym, at thirty-two, I took a fat-content test. I remember the day as if it were yesterday. The woman who administered the test took a metal gismo that looked similar to pliers and squeezed a piece of skin from my back.

I had no idea I had developed fatback. I immediately went home and noticed that I had developed small, but ample, love handles. I was mortified! My God, I thought, how in the world did this happen? I have always been skinny.

As the age of fifty began to creep up on me, weight loss became even more difficult. I would eat perfectly until the evening, then I would use every excuse in the world to eat anything that was not listed on my diet. My excuse was always from the diary of my old story:

“Well, I am a skinny person. I could use a little more weight! I would even look better and healthier.”

These were the same words I had heard my entire young life. I used them to inhibit my own diet, every night. Suddenly, my fat content was in the upper twenties.

To change, I had to face my personal challenges and rewrite the story of healthy living for me at my current age. My affirmation became:

Healthy living and balance brings my body to perfect health!

As you can see, my affirmation contains only positive words and is phrased in the present. To get rid of old challenges, you cannot simply erase them. You must replace them with positive thoughts. Affirmations are a great help on this step forward.

Change Requires an Open Mind

When the world was in its toddler phase, nomads dragged around their belongings in the dessert. I am certain, that one day, someone discovered that by taking some logs and placing them underneath her belongings, carrying heavy loads became a great deal easier. Eventually, someone thought of making the logs into a wheel. Most modern day manufacturing resulted from this one invention—the wheel.

Can you imagine when the first person decided to carve a log into a wheel—what her sisters, brothers, and friends said? I am sure she heard people mutter, “What on earth are you doing, Girlfriend? Can you not see that pulling our belongings around is better than any new way you could think up?”

Most people resist change until it becomes common place. Can you remember the first time you heard about Facebook?

 

I remember I got twenty e-mail invites before I decided to even check out Facebook. Now, instead of saying, “Hey, e-mail me that.” I say, “Just Facebook me.”

I show my 84-year-old mother things on my computer and, also, talk to Siri on my iPhone while she is nearby. Daily, my mother is filled with surprise and disbelief as augmented and virtual reality rapidly changes our lives. I asked her one day, “When you were a child, did you ever imagine you could ask your telephone to send a message to someone across the world?”

She shook her head. “Not in a million years did I think that.” And my mother was a forward thinker.

 

Change is not something that just happens. Change is an organic movement forward, an openness to new ideas and new thought. Just as Spirit continually moves forward to create more and more universes, beyond our own, so must you flow with Divine Change.

To be connected with Spirit, you must understand the concepts of change; otherwise, you will be left behind.

Change is inevitable. Change is in everything you see, everything you do, and is in everything you can imagine. The only thing you cannot change is change itself.

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.
