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.

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.

This Toaster Isn’t Working

Yesterday, my mother called out to me from the kitchen. “Bo, the toaster is broken! Could you check it for me? I set the dial to medium dark. I put the gluten-free bread in it. I even pressed the trigger to start the darn thing. Still, it does not work!”

If my mother was doing all that she was supposed to do to get connected to the electricity; if she was using the power source, acting on the science that was supposed to make the electrical kitchen appliance work, then something must be wrong with the power source, because the Law of Electricity would and should work if all things were connected properly and the energy is flowing from the source. Right?

I went to the main circuit breaker. Indeed, it was working properly. Next, I went to the connection to the source. Was the toaster actually plugged into the energy? It was not.

Metaphorically, what does this story teach us?

Many times we mutter to ourselves, “I am doing everything I am supposed to do to make my dreams come true. But nothing is happening! What is wrong?”

The entire time, though, we had not been plugged into the energy that creates and manifests our dreams. Our idea (the bread in the toaster) is intact and correct. Our brain (in this metaphor, would be the toaster) is working properly. But the brain is of no use, alone, unless it is plugged into the power—which is the Law.

Today’s lesson about your human brain is that it must be connected—or plugged into the energy of the Law—to work.

How do we PLUG IN to this Source? The truth is that you have always been, and will always be, plugged into Source, which we call Universal Power. Flipping that switch in our brain that invites Universal Power to work on our behalf in our individual minds and bodies is like the circuit breaker. It is a deliberate move to connect. It is an opening of the mind to a Truth, perhaps, beyond your understanding, at this point.

I will not ask you to believe without proof that this works. I simply need you to test this theory in your daily life.

Water your dreams with positivity and release all negative thoughts about your life. Simply observe what happens next.

Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 10.04.32 AMIn your contemplation today, make sure that those delicate and beautiful dreams and ideas that you have created are connecting to your belief in yourself that can make your dreams manifest! This essential power of belief can make or break a beautiful idea trying to manifest.

Do the easy work. Connect with the Law!

If you have a dream, if you do the work, study the process, gather all the information needed, release all fear from your mind, open your heart to new ideas in your contemplative time and continue to step forward on the path to success, you will ultimately get there. No one knows how long it will take for your dream to manifest. However, you will get there.
