“CURSE” OF THE BAD HAIRCUT

“CURSE” OF THE BAD HAIRCUT

How could a bad haircut put a curse on your life? Well of course it couldn’t but it could put a dent in your enjoyment of one day or two perhaps the entire week just by the way you focus on it… Just by the way you refuse to acknowledge that it is a very temporary setback and your hair will grow out again… Just by refusing to believe and realize that ultimately you will have a second chance at successful grooming!

Isn’t it odd the way our self-talk can go? “I just know my husband (or wife) won’t like this mess of a haircut. This is just a disaster!  Now how can I go to a job interview looking like this?” We do tend to obsess over things that are so fleeting and basically no big deal.

Why did I start by using a haircut as the subject of my musings? Simply because with a rather insignificant event sometimes it is easier to understand and admit what many times we do to sabotage our own joy. Just as easily I could have used the example of his fancy formal shirt ruined by a wine spill or the elegant dress that shrank to doll-size in the wash. Even if all three things had happened they would not be enough to actually ruin a life!

It is important to realize that any discomforting event will eventually be past history. The quicker we are willing to maintain a positive focus while accepting things as they are right now, the sooner things will change for the better. Holding on for dear life to misery, continually feeding it more energy, just creates more misery and emotional upheaval.

To look at it in a different way, what you resist persists. There is no getting around the fact that the more we push against the existing circumstances, refusing to accept them, the longer they seem to stay with us. The more we hold tight to our unhappy feelings, the more miserable we become.

All of this does not suggest that you should not take corrective action when it is called for but it should be done with a feeling of allowing things to work out in their appropriate timing. Force brings about opposing force. The more we demand situations to change this instant the harder, denser and more unmovable they become.

On any issues larger than a haircut for instance it is perfectly normal to be upset over the loss of a friendship or the passing of a pet. In such circumstances we simply need to limit the amount of time we allocate to grieving and begin to put energy into more progressive pursuits. Such heartfelt losses need not be allowed to ruin endless weeks and months. There will always be other people who will be grateful for your friendship. There will always be loving pets needing you.

I actually have seen people go into mild depression over the fact that their favorite automobile was no longer repairable, simply could not function and had to be “retired”. Life is too precious to waste any of it in ongoing regret or self-recrimination of any kind. I “could have” or “should have” never solves anything.

Each one of us is here on earth to use our wonderful God given gifts and talents while learning our life lessons. If we are to fulfill our destiny we need to pursue our life paths with determined optimism and joy. It is difficult to be productive if we are continually looking over our shoulders at past unhappiness or reviewing current difficulties over and over again.

Think of it this way: one plan didn’t work, but there are other options; the home you wanted was already sold, but there will be a better one; your friend moved away, but you can ease your next door neighbor’s loneliness with a few moments of your company while at the same time making your own feelings lighter in the process.

Keep looking on the bright side and your personal light will shine brighter not only for your benefit but for others. There is never a good reason to concentrate on what you do not want. Look instead to what you can do right now this moment to access your inner joy.

When you can find a reason to be thankful, to be grateful for anything at all, it is much easier to get into your joy. And when you are joyful you will find positive creative ideas will come so easily. Being in joyful gratitude gives you added energy to carry out those tasks that are calling for your special abilities. I believe that each one of you my readers is capable of greatness!

If you need a little help in keeping your thinking on a positive track while stopping all the worrisome “detours”, give me a call. Hypnosis is a quick and effective way to restructure your habitual thinking. With some hypnotherapy you will find yourself believing in “possibilities” rather than “problems”. Inculcating or installing a positive attitude with the help of your subconscious mind allows you to access clearer thinking and simpler solutions to life’s stumbling blocks.

WHAT IF____?

What if you just arrived on planet earth today? What if some great creative force brought you here with a male or female human body but without any mental or emotional pattern or instructions? Imagine yourself with the ultimate in life choices and ability to design.

Imagine yourself with no human father, mother or relatives, in other words no patterns you had to follow, no “must have” hereditary gifts!

If that were the case, would you decide to be healthy or sick. Would you decide to enjoy your life or spend it in self-inflicted misery?

You wouldn’t need to be angry like your father because there was no father pattern to follow. You wouldn’t need to be fat like your grandmother because you had no grandmother pattern.

If there were no patterns, you could make your life the most beautiful desirable life that ever was. You could use all the talents you could dream of. Your mind would be open to your personal programs.

Why do I propose such a scenario? My belief is that what we repeatedly tell ourselves about our birth into a particular family, what we emotionally reinforce as certain inherited traits is much stronger than any actual heredity from our lineage. We do not need to amplify the negatives!

Each and every one of us, every individual on earth today, can elect to change their beliefs this minute. Today is the day to decide who you will be right now and all the incoming tomorrows. You have the right to choose! Why not start your new pattern today? Construct that exciting, beautiful scenario for yourself now.

Positive emotionally reinforced beliefs can override any and all negative appearing heredity. Belief is everything. Your mind and emotions are that strong! You can redesign your life one belief at a time starting in this moment.

If you could use a little extra help in overcoming some of your long held beliefs or fears just call me. With hypnosis I can help you redesign some negative thinking into a better way of life. As a certified clinical hypnotist I have helped many clients through difficult circumstances.

KARMA: GOOD? BAD?

KARMA: GOOD? BAD?
Karma gets such a bad rap! No karma is not only “bad”. In truth karma is not “good” either. In fact karma itself is quite neutral. Karma is simply the energetic return of all our thoughts, feelings, words and actions. Karma is revealed in our day to day life experience.

In other words whatever we send out with an emotional charge, there will always be a return. The look or feel of the created karmic response may be quite different. It can be difficult or even impossible to access the originating cause. Yes, the original source of the energy may not be obvious but depend on this: what was sent forth will return!

When life seems to crash down on us in unappreciated ways, we might blame everything from our family to the stars but the truth is we simply need to change the way we are responding to life’s experiences! Blessing what happens is a much better response. It is not really im-portant the why and wherefore so much as our response to it.

I have a friend who when life gets messy simply says “Isn’t that interesting!” She unabashedly looks forward to what great thing this so called disaster will bring forth into her next new experience. She opens the door to allow delightful changes. By blessing the apparently unhappy and ugly instead of hard resisting, she invites beautiful outcomes. I have to say that her mind set and consistently different approach appears to always work in her favor.

You might ask “what if my awful karma is a result of a past life?” That is kind of the “it’s really not my fault” excuse. Whether it is this life or some other lifetime your way to better experiences right here and now is still the same. Using the approach of sending light, love and acceptance to whatever you encounter will make improvement in the next appearance. “This is bringing in something great. I can hardly wait to see what happens next!”

This way of viewing things may not come naturally to most of us but with a little practice it will get easier and easier. Eventually putting joyful anticipation first will become the normal way of making life an exciting adventure. “Oh, boy! I know this next happening is going to be something great!”

If you are ever tempted to judge the experiences of friends or even strangers, resist! Putting your energy into the problems of others is equivalent to binding those same or similar difficulties to yourself.

It is not healthy for you to reiterate to yourself or anyone else how awful and horrible anything or anyone was. Re-member your subconscious is always listening and believes it is your desired and repeated experience! It is fine to send light and healing to anyone but be sure you are not sensing or amplifying their discomfort
.
To enjoy life’s varied experiences, it is important to make the decision to smile at all of it. Expect joyful progress. After all we are here on earth for our souls’ advancement. The only way to move forward and learn is through experiencing.

WORDS, THOUGHTS, EMOTIONS

What would you like to change in your experience? Could it be as simple as changing what you have said to yourself and your friends over and over again?

Consider what I have said and thought for years: “Every time, every month when it is the full moon I just can’t sleep. I feel like a prowling animal. Oh dear, I just know I will be awake half of the night!”

What if instead I decided to repeat something different, turning the idea inside out, flipping it over, putting it in reverse. “Oh, the full moon is on the rise. I just can’t wait. You know every time the moon is full I feel as if I am bathed in a silken blanket of shimmering white light! Bring it on Mr. Moon. I love your radiance. You comfort me. I enjoy the best sleep when you are full. I rest as deeply as a sleeping peaceful baby.”

Could it be that all of us have told ourselves things that we truly don’t want? Could changing our thoughts and words make a difference?

Perhaps your often said phrase goes something like this: “Oh what am I going to do. Aunt Tilly is visiting again. I hope she doesn’t stay long. Every visit of hers just makes me angry and sick. Her ideas are crazy. I know I’ll have to go to bed by the time she leaves!”

O.K., what about this instead: “Aunt Tilly! Isn’t she just a piece of work. She and her off the wall ideas make me smile and laugh inside. I wonder what she has come up with this time. I can’t wait to hear her carry on. I just know I will laugh till my sides hurt after she leaves. I get such a kick out of her. Her antics put a smile on my face. She knows no bounds and no barriers. Oh, to be that free. What an imagination!”

Sometimes we are so much more powerful than we realize. Try taking just one of your “oft-said” ideas or words and rewrite the script. You never know. You might be missing a whole lot of fun and positive dynamic change.

What will your new experience be?

“TODAY IS MY BEST DAY YET!”

Yes, today is my best day yet. Why? Because I intend it. Because I deliberately activate my imagination to work for the highest and best today. Because I tell myself that today is my best day.

If I stick to that elevated thought throughout the day, I will draw to me those delightful, energetic friends and strangers who are envisioning the same for themselves. Together we will create unique and individual “best days” for all those who join us on that same energy train.

Your thoughts about the day, about yourself and all the days to come, are busy molding your experiences. The thoughts that you habitually entertain are your powerful emissaries. Your personal thoughts will scour the globe for you, finding everything and everyone that you intend, just to satisfy your beliefs. Those thoughts will create, will manifest, that which you believe. Your thoughts will be made visible in your life!

Since you have so much power to mold and shape your reality now and in the future, shouldn’t you take full advantage of that strength? Why not pay more attention to what you think and the accompanying emotions? You are absolutely capable of channeling and monitoring your thoughts. Yes, you will entertain momentary lapses into past patterns, but you can immediately replace any harmful ideas with positive ones.

Today and every day, give yourself the most positive momentum and forward thrust that you can imagine by keeping your thoughts on the upbeat. Remind yourself often: “I am in charge of my thoughts. I want the best for myself. I will think and visualize better and better every day. I will see, imagine and know that I am a winner.”

If you want health, see yourself healthy. Envision, imagine yourself participating in all the exciting and energetic activities that a healthy person enjoys. If you want prosperity, see yourself in all the situations where a prosperous person lives and thrives. Do you wish for friends? Begin thinking and acting friendly. Know that you are a warm and loving person.

If anything in your life is “not working” at the moment, begin to change your thinking about that situation or relationship. As you entertain better thoughts, your life becomes better. Yes, you already have the energy, the ability, the talent and the opportunity to make the changes you want now.

The desires of your heart were placed there by your own high spirit. Before your incarnation on this earth, you received all the talent and energy to manifest those desires. All that is required of you is a change of thought and some earnest follow up action! Today and tomorrow, tell yourself: “This is my Best Day yet!” Make this the truth of every day.

This concentrated positive thought will bring your own gratitude and thankfulness to such a level, that you will find yourself riding a creative  energy “high”. In that energy you will no longer acknowledge any limits. You will live and work with a marvelous sense of freedom.

I am here in Prescott Arizona to help you with any life dilemma. I can work with you in my healing room or over the telephone. Just call or e-mail for your personal appointment.

O KARMA, MY KARMA

Each and every one of you is a magnificent powerful manifester. Yes, you are an extremely talented creator of your own life events. Day to day you create within the light activated ball of energy that is you. You created your relationships, your home, you even selected the family you were born into. What an outstanding job you did and continue to do every moment!

Now here we all are on this interesting earth plane experience. Do any of you feel that time has changed, that it is moving faster and faster? It seems to me the first day of any given month arrives and then suddenly the month has slipped away. Yes, it does feel as if time has sped by and nearly disappeared while we were keeping busy handling the events of daily life.

As I view it, the interesting part of this apparently fast-moving time event we are experiencing is that we are also treated to or gifted with nearly instantaneous Karmic returns. Yes, that is what I said, very nearly instantaneous Karmic returns. Now how does that make you feel? A little apprehensive perhaps?

Many of us think of Karma as being negative but of course it can be either negative or positive. What is always true however, is that what we send out comes right back to us although in a somewhat different form or appearance and most likely from an apparently different source. Yes, the universal laws are absolutely immutable. Those laws never change! You send the fully formed energy patterns out into the ethers and they come back to you with similar force and emotion.

The energy we exert always creates some sort of matching effect. When we put strong energy into anything it carries more power than we may believe or intend. Perhaps in a moment of anger or confusion we say some regrettable thing and then believe it is over and done. But of course it isn’t. That energy has made a pattern and it is connected to us. It has gone out into the cosmos to create for us.

Words, thoughts, actions, emotions create our fully formed patterns! All of these are continually working to create our future moments. The emotions that we attach to our thoughts, words and actions act as a powerful fuel increasing the intensity of the energy patterns we make.

Now what is instant Karma? Suppose you go grocery shopping for a neighbor who has been sick and confined to the house for nearly two weeks. You put her groceries away, perhaps even fixing her a sandwich or a bowl of soup. You may find that an hour or two later a friend is knocking at your door offering free tickets and a car ride to the fair. It does seem to bounce back that quickly.

Although if instead of doing a kind favor for someone you forcefully kick the neighbor’s dog which you found upending your favorite flowers. The resulting “return” might be just as quick. As you finish your own grocery shopping, you begin loading packages into your car and discover that some passerby has decided your car needed a little more design etched on the driver’s side with his nice sharp key.

Most of the time of course we have no idea which energy it was that we put forth that was ultimately responsible for bringing in the corresponding event. Then again it occasionally might be connected to what are past life “carry-overs”, those things we did in a former life that created a karmic debt or lesson.

Regardless of what we are experiencing today, if our desire is for a joyous spirit filled life, it would seem each of us is burdened with the task of watching our words, our thoughts, our emotions and naturally our actions. It is a huge task. It would appear to require us to be present continually in every now moment. That ever present now moment is where our power to create our highest and best desires is available for our use.  Now is when we can make positive changes.

It seems to me that emotions present one of our heaviest and most powerful energies to watch. Why would I say that? Because emotions are a highly combustible fuel when added to our thoughts, fears, actions or worries. When we are upset over someone or something we tend to mentally dwell on it over and over again. Imagining the worst and adding more and more “what if this” and “what if that” and “they shouldn’t have”. It becomes so monstrous that the memory, the rehash is not even near the original force but many times more intense. We actually send out multiple energy patterns of our discontent bringing the same kind of experiences into our lives over and over again.

I have an idea that might make this work of being aware a little more interesting and perhaps less stressful. You know that your words, thoughts, actions and feelings are made of energy. Further, you believe that the energy of all that you are producing cannot be seen. But suppose you decided that when you spoke or thought, the energy of those words and ideas painted a detailed picture that carried sound and color. Suppose your energy filled feelings were like a miniature movie or cartoon which was being widely distributed throughout the universe. Would this make you think twice about the content?

Suppose that your distressed actions created a movie complete with intensifying music, building to a crescendo, and of course panoramic shots of the entire event. Would you consider a bit more seriously before creating an unpleasant scenario?

Now what if the difficulty is a memory from a long time past? Each time the memory arrives you add some more distressed energy to it. Yes it is only the past but each time you entertain it, it seems to gain momentum and more bad feelings.

I have many times practiced a tweaking procedure with my own unpleasant memories. In other words every time the old thoughts would arise, I would begin changing the mental movie a little at a time. If it was an argument I would see it more of a calm discussion with all parties being quite reasonable. Every time the old memory would reappear I would adjust it even further until there was no way it could cause me to add any additional angst to it.

That method always worked for me without bothering any of the other people who were actually involved. And if in the energetic sense the others felt some relief as well, all the better!

Another way to approach the bitter old memory problem is with a certain kind of writing. The writing is not mailed or given to anyone it is again strictly for your personal comfort.

First you address the way you felt at the time of the situation. Spell out all of your feelings, arguments and ideas from your point of view on paper. Then when you feel complete, imagine the other person in a totally calm and rational mood (even if you have never experienced them in that way). Now seeing them in that way, allow their words to be put on the paper.

Do this writing that comes through them without second guessing anything that they might say, just write what they might be feeling in that kind and gentle state of mind. Chances are when you write their views from that vantage point you will begin seeing some surprising possibilities and gain emotional calm yourself.

If you still have something you need to say, write that and again allow them in their most reasonable countenance to respond. It can be most cathartic and many times will allow you to release the whole affair without a second thought.

All of these exercises for improving our personal energy and the resultant experiences are intended to free us to be happy and to really enjoy our lives. Our overall health physical, mental, emotional and yes spiritual as well depends on our ability to love ourselves and others enough to be free of any harsh ideas or judgments. Create well my friends! The power is yours.
