Falling on Spiritually Deaf Ears

Have you every spoken to someone passionately, but it was as if nothing you said computed in the person’s mind and your words were falling on #deaf_ears? You could have been playing a trumpet and the face would be the same—blank.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, you could meet a brand new person, and within minutes, you find that you are resonating with every cell of his or her body. What do you think causes such a peculiar phenomena? Pheromones? Spiritual connection? Like-mindedness? 

First of all, we are all created from One Source, which means behind all that there is only One Creative Mind. So, even if someone appears to not understand you on this earth plane, it doesn’t mean that person doesn’t hear you on a spiritual or subconscious level. It simply means that they are not supposed to hear you just yet.

Some clients say they have looked at the back page of the newspaper where I had an ad for 2o years and, suddenly, my ad popped out at them. When I would share with them that the ad had been there for 20 years, each client’s jaw would drop. They never saw my name and probably weren’t supposed to see the ad until they were ready to make a shift in consciousness.

I remember a time when I was studying voice in the early years, before I reached puberty. (Well, maybe a few years after.) I had a very strict teacher in NYC who coached many stars. She acknowledged that I finally did something right after a specific instruction.

I replied, “Well, why didn’t you explain it that way before?”

She sneered and said snidely, “My dear, I have said the same thing in the same way in almost every lesson you have had. Go back and listen to your recordings of our sessions, and you’ll see that I’m correct.”

I knew better than to argue with her, but I was determined to prove her wrong.

I can say it with a smile now: She was very right.

Not only did she say her approach to changing my old habit the same way, but I made the same mistakes over and over again until I was finally ready to hear it her way, which was about 10 different sessions. My deafness was a simple matter of #spiritual_deafness. My mind refused to listen to her because I thought I was right.

Psychology Today says in the “Denial of Reality”:

In psychiatry the word “delusion” means a firm belief in some idea which is known to be false, and it can be a symptom of paranoia or psychosis. While the believers in the above untruths aren’t mentally ill, they do strongly adhere to their false credos in spite of clear evidence to the contrary which is presented to them, especially if based on scientific findings.

 

These Deniers are indeed ‘True Believers,’ for whom there is only One Absolute Truth. They are the very people whom Pope Francis recently called “fundamentalists,” and they are found in all religions and other ‘isms.’ The writings of their texts are taken literally or reinterpreted to suit their prejudices and hates.

As a teacher in later years, I had to realize this truth; otherwise, I would have gone crazy after saying the same things over and over again to students. Us teachers realize that when a person is ready to learn, he or she simply learns. Repetitive teaching is actually a great tool.

How many people do you know who insist that President Trump was the right choice for president, even after all the Hoo Ha that has been going on in the first few months of his presidency, and now, Comey’s testimony today? The republican side needs to be correct. They will fight for their own right to have an opinion until Trump is like President Nixon, impeached. However, I’m sure #49 won’t be as apologetic to the nation as Nixon was. He will be saying something like: “But millions of people were at my inauguration!!!” His followers, I guess, most will be of the same ilk, stubborn and upset that their choice was a bad one. 

Remember: no choice is right or wrong. We would be chastising ourselves constantly if that were so. What is beneficial for you in this moment to learn your highest lesson is always the reason you will make a choice!

The moral of this story is:

 

When you speak, always speak from your heart with one intent—to shine your light. It is never your responsibility to change someone’s mind. You are responsible for you and you alone. 

Namaste.

Rain, Reign, and Rein #bucketlist #powerofwords #Scienceofmind #spiritualadvice

Last year, I decided to pull out a few jewels from my bucket list, while I was motivated. One of these dreams was to speak a second language. Since I moved to South Florida, I decided to choose Spanish, because a large majority of the community here is

Latin. I began my studies with a computer program, Rosetta Stone and a cell phone App called Brainscape. About midway through the courses (3 months), I also attained a private teacher to help me on my way to becoming bilingual.

Most immediately, I had two great problems. I could comprehend the language if I could see the written words, but I was not used to hearing the many variations of the words and idiomatic instances of the words in the different Latin vernacular (Cuban, Mexican, Colombian, Venezuelan, to name a few).

I decided I would be helped greatly if I made friends with some native speakers, so that I could converse and have the opportunity to listen more often. Also, I began to watch at least 30 minutes of Spanish Television, as well. As I began to learn about the culture and their language from these lovely people, they, too, needed some advice and guidance about my language. As I have been a vocal and speaking coach for many years, I was more than happy to help them.

Almost immediately I realized how confusing English must be to any foreigner, yet most of them were trying much harder to converse than I seemed to be. They didn’t care if they were wrong, they simply plodded along using the words they knew—wanting to—needing to communicate. That was their sole objective.

But, me, I wanted to be perfect. When you think of how a baby learns, there is no perfection involved. The lessons are from trial and error. Also they are more from listening and watching, than in studying. So, at one point, I knew I would have to throw away my counterintuitive need to understand, and simply BE IN THE NOW.

When I got over myself, I began to take chances and begin to speak to people as flawed as I knew I would be. My first attempts were humbling, to say the least. My amount of specified learning of the language was far greater than most people who come to South Florida. I had one friend from Venezuela who moved here to have a better life. He actually knew about 50 English words, which he was very proud of. His favorite words were beach, which he said like bitch, and Wells Fargo, which was the street you turned on to get to his home.

I got very used to seeing his confused face as we tried our best to communicate, using our Iphone Translation App more than our brains. I learned a lot from him, as I had to explain to him things in Spanish. Because I wanted to help him, my mind began to remember words and phrases I had learned to help him understand what I said. We actually went away for a weekend together. So, I had total immersion, which was the most beneficial in learning. It was then we both realized that if we were going to have a good time vacationing together, we would have to learn to communicate.

I say all of this, because in English, for instance, we have words that sound the same, but have completely different meanings. These in any language are called homonyms or homophones. An example is in the title of this blog: Rein, Rain, and Reign. All of the words sound the same, but mean something completely different.

Because Spanish is written more phonetically than English, there are far less homophones in Spanish than in English. The list gets even less in Spanish when you are able to hear the slight differences in “v” and “b” sound, which are similar, but not exactly alike. The key, though, in any part of life is understanding the topic, so that the meaning of the words make sense when you hear them. We cannot do this without listening and being present.

But the process in understanding goes even one step further: Visualization. When you learn a word, you actually see it in your mind. When someone speaks with you, the words turn into images so that mind can comprehend faster. So, learning a language, or learning anything, takes the ability to hear something and turn it into a picture in your mind. When you can do this, you learn much quicker than someone who was, like me, trying to comprehend everything in his mind.

Spirituality is very similar. You must start out with baby steps. You are not going to know everything about the language of Spirituality without trying it and visualizing it. This is why having your morning download of insight in meditation is so important. What we cannot understand, Spirit can help support us by providing spiritual energy and comprehension through contemplation and insight.

We will learn from the best teacher, Spirit, who lives and dwells within, always guiding us to the perfect next step. The only thing that Spirit cannot do is decide to step forward—FOR you. That is where your human choice begins, just like my desire to check something off of my bucket list. Step forward into your desire, today!

Carrying Around the Dead! #livingintheNOW #lifelessons #spiritualrecovery

Can you imagine that if every time someone important to you passed away, you had to carry around the corpse? Often, with the death of a relationship, a job, or a friendship, we tend to do the same thing—psychologically, which weighs us down much the same as it would, if we carried around a real body. The dead weight is too much of a burden for anyone to maneuver, as our lives are full enough with the present moment and future commitments.

I have used a hypnosis technique for many people who tend to hold on to things for far too long. The idea is that you imagine going through your life, walking from the beginning of a tunnel to the light at the end of the tunnel, collecting mementos in a basket from people, friends, lovers, teachers, family, and jobs. You place everything in the basket that you think shaped and molded you into that very special person you are.

At the end of the tunnel, you find that your basket is full of so many “things” that it is much too heavy to carry. I ask you to imagine that there is an angel or spirit at the end of the tunnel waiting for you. She asks you to cross a large gap into a heavenly place. But you can’t jump to that heaven with the heavy basket. You must make a choice to either experience the joy and peace of heaven or hold on to the things in the basket.

For most, the choice is easy. Let go of the old to experience all that Spirit has for you in the future. But, many people can’t decide if they will disappear if they let go of their baggage. They believe that who they are is dependant upon all of the mementos in the basket.

The truth is, though, you are not your past or anything from your past. You may have been shaped by the past, but it is time to let go of the positive and the negative things that keep you from jumping into a new and spiritual place of bliss. Your fears, your trust, and your future depend upon the faith of letting go. You can’t fill a glass that is already full.

When you let go of the basket, you realize that everything you are, will continue to be, even without all of the heavy weight. In fact, you are able to be more of you, as you let go and let Spirit fill you with power, prosperity, and the truth of the NOW.
