THE ENDING OF OLD WAYS AND TRUE PROGRESS IN NEW WAYS

Life is full of endings and beginnings. Something is always ending and as much as we try to stop it, it seems like you have no control over it. That has to mean something new is beginning. Beginning to look at your part in your destiny is a great beginning to initiate. I have been writing this blog for nine months now. It is time to birth this baby into a new life!

What does it mean to create a new life for YOURSELF? The past nine months blogs have all been about that process. I have written from a therapeutic point of view on how to treat the old stuff you no longer need through going through it, sifting thoughts and behaviors along with scrutinizing what you do want that is good and healthy in your life. I have said that you must look through all lenses from spirituality to how you think to how you feel to what you do and who you hang out with in associations. It is an involved process to become evolved into awareness and living a conscious life.

By now, (if you have been reading my blog), you would be well aware of how anything negative impacts your way of life. Keeping yourself focused on the positive and what you desire is highly correlated to your destiny. You can believe that you are destined for greatness or not. It is simple. Thinking is a choice. Anyone can choose to believe they will be successful and pull it off if they stay focused and positive and do the groundwork.

As a therapist, I am always faced with hearing people’s problems. Most of the problems I hear run the gamut A-Z. Every one of them on this spectrum can be improved and even help get the life desired with a change in dependency. Dependency is who or what you are relying on for the change. If you are one who is in the habit of expecting others to meet your needs in order for change to happen, please find a God to believe in.  All humans are going to let you down and even betray you. That is what humans do. You need a thinking dependency that lets you know you can always depend on God. This is called Faith. It is personal to each one of us, but without it, you are destined to stay in the same old way of life. With it, the sky is the limit!

With faith, you can begin to gain hope in something higher and greater than you or other humans. When you attach to this Power, you also begin to soar in your spirit and that helps lift you up off the bed of depression or the ceilings of anxiety. Those two energies will keep you out of balance and up and down or rolling around. You need stability and faith in one God that will be there all the time. In that energy, you are given stability because the Seeds of Faith are what create new life. New life is always filled with hope (just like a new baby’s whole life is ahead of them to begin).

Begin to think of what you want to create that you truly enjoy…it will be part of your destiny…

ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS AS THE PROCESS of REGENERATION PROGRESSES

As we end one way of being that we are discarding, it is imperative to put in a new way. All new ways begin with a thought and a prayer to begin the manifestation process. When you keep affirming what you desire to begin, it takes root and waters the new seed. Just like in planting a garden that you want to grow into a harvest, you must plant the seeds you want to grow.

For example, in the old way, you may have thought about getting even with someone who hurt you or wishing some evil befell him or her. You may not have really wanted that, but you thought about it. Thoughts have the power to become reality over time. What you admire, you will soon be mired in. You cannot think two ways at one time. IN other words, you cannot think you would like to get even with another person and wish yourself wellness at the same time. It will not work.

Our brains are like a computer and will run the software we plug in as a program. If your software is full of “hard” messages, they will be both for you and others. Typically, they strike you first as you are the one creating them. The Law of Attraction at work is all about REAPING AND SOWING. Thinking what you want to come true will attract that thing. The more you train your brain to think positively for you and everyone else, the better your life, others’ lives, and all humans will be.

 Our planet needs a collective group of people wishing wellness on everyone and everything. This kind of energy is regenerative and causes a ripple effect. By the way, the converse is also true. Think about a group of people who are always complaining and wishing ill on others. Do they have a good life?

 Take a look at a group of people who gather together and collectively take positive actions to help and wish people well. This is often seen out of tragic events, like floods or other natural disasters. People coming together to do good is an energy that strikes and softens the hearts of others. It is contagious, like a healthy flu. If you begin to gain fluency all by yourself in thinking kindness, gentleness, purity of heart, and other virtuous character ways of being, you will be amazed at how stable you become. Anxiety dies down and you are certainly not depressed unless you let that energy in.

Staying hopeful, positive, and trusting is not done alone. You need Higher Power in the form of the Divine Being combining with the divine essence in you and other like-minded people. Begin to attract those people in your life and focus on regenerative change in thinking, taking care of yourself and others, and in heart led endeavors. It is a Promise that you can trust. You will overcome even the oldest of generations of sour grapes in your family tree.

You will climb to new heights and see all things in ways that tell you all things are possible for you as you give and receive in love.

ENTERING AND FINISHING EACH DAY WITH TYING UP LOOSE ENDS

This blog continues the idea of the Process of Life as it pertains to tying up old loose ends and keeping the “not’s” out of our inner being. Each day brings a new opportunity to live regenerated in new and enjoyable ways of living. It is very important, therefore, to welcome the day with this joy. Instead of getting up late and rushing out the door, allow yourself morning time to think positive and grateful thoughts. It takes 21 days to change old thinking, which changes old habits.

Begin an Intention of getting up and thinking of how glad you are to be you and have your life (even as imperfect as it is now). Find thoughts of things to be grateful for and read inspirational writings or at least one encouraging thought to plug in your brain and keep in mind all day. Rule out old negative ways of thinking that include “not’s” like: can’t or won’t or don’t or never can change, etc. If they pop up, replace them with thoughts like: “maybe not yet, but soon will,” etc. Use any affirmations that you want to come into being. This is known as Ordering Your DayJ

Throughout the day, check in and make sure you are keeping out the old thoughts of resentment and all anxious thinking patterns. This is impossible at first, but will water the Thought Seeds you are trying to create to Take Over Loose Ends (that used to pick up negative attachments). NO MORE! Declare it to be so.

At the end of the day before going to bed, do the same as you did in the am. Take time to get rid of anger that you picked up during the day (don’t say there was none as there are opportunities all day long with the way life is now. Many things are ready to attack our anger. Even the things you have a right to be angry about need not be held onto. Feel the sadness of them and let them go to your prayers to God. Pray and read something that will give you rest and peace before you go to sleep. Set an intention to have a great night’s sleep and dreams that will give you information you may need from your subconscious. Then, relax your body fully and nod off. It is important that you have at least 7 hours of good rest. If you haven’t been getting that, put that in your regenerative plan.

Beginning your day and ending your day in this way will bring you great rewards across the boards! You will feel more peace and calm and less stress. This is what your nerves and brain need to regenerate new paths that take you where you want to go inside yourself. Once those are established, the seeds of greatness have a fertile inner environment to grow. Then, how you are thinking begins to match what happens in your outer world.

Watch for the evidence! You will begin to see new things you never noticed before when you focused on the negative.

More next time…..

TIE THE LOOSE ENDS TOGETHER IN ORDER TO KEEP ASCENDING

IN order to tie loose ends together, they have to have first been unknotted and untied from whatever they were attached to that was tying them in knots. If that is a confusing sentence, please reread and use a word picture like yarn that is all tangled up in knots. It is impossible to used yarn full of knots if you want to make something Beautiful out of it! Cutting the yarn knots out and then tying up the loose ends, which can then be hidden on the backside of a project, can achieve untangling.

Your life is analogous to that word picture. Once you untangle your emotions that were all tangled up from the processes of life in the past, you are able to take those loose ends and make something beautiful. Knots are symbolic for the entire “not’s” you may have suffered from others such as NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Those “not’s” travel with us until we wake up and intentionally sever them. The bottom line is that no one is good enough on his or her own. A Divine Influence in us allows us to connect with others so connected that want to have a positive effect on us, and those who don’t, we can disconnect from while we are working on untangling old emotions of hurt. WE may even have to keep those loose ends severed for a long time.

Disconnecting can mean actually cutting them loose or keeping them at some distance of connection. A person who is mistreating you is NOT someone who is going to help you unless you are impervious to his or her negatives. It is hard to be unreceptive to a constant nagging or negative voice in your environment, but it is possible. If you are unable to keep from letting them hypnotize you with their draining words and downer actions, please set boundaries while you pick up more positive influencers about you. There are “cut-offs” that are not intentional and are not done well, so it you decide to cut off a loose end, do it well and let the other person know what you are doing without blame or shame or avoidance.

Within all of us are seeds of greatness. However, hanging out with others who have no enlightenment of who they are and desire to drag you into their negative ditch need to be cut off (at least temporarily). It is best if you can do this with no harm or unwellness of wishes, just detach. You can keep a person in your heart, but not your life. This is especially true if it is a parent or another close relative. The seeds of greatness need healthy water and light in order to grow well.

 Tying up loose ends within our inner being is done with lots of love for self and others. Give affirmations to yourself that these new messages will activate those seeds inside you. Soon, you will feel the empowerment that you have in you. As you connect to the Highest Power of love, Who is the Creator of Love and created you, you will feel even more trust in yourself and that One Who Loves you (God).

There is only ONE Ultimate Power of Love that can accomplish the full regenerative transformation of all these loose ends, but you can help by aligning with the Truth of that Love. It is a Light that gives you Inner Truth and Knowing that keeps your old brain from being hijacked by lies and things that “degenerate” all humans.

 

Keep the Ties that Bind in Love in Motion ….

UP, UP, AND AWAY….

This blog continues to help you find ways to lift up and away above the fray. Fray just means the arguments, the quarrels, the disputes, the disagreements, and any other things that disturb your calm. It is impossible to go to the highest parts of yourself if you are involved in these kinds of things. By the way, just because you are silent or do not speak to someone does not mean that you are above fray. Anytime, you are withholding forgiveness, speaking to someone, stuffing, etc., you are actually “holding and hanging up” your inner being. These things still tangle us in knots even if we trick ourselves into thinking otherwise.

 Climbing the Ladder to Higher Awareness means you have been down into the pit and the basement to see what is down there. This is intentional, however, and some call it inventory or getting the mess out that has been there for a long time. We all have those things that bother us and we must deal with them one way or another. Avoiding or not resolving frustrations or things of the past just push them down, but they still lurk below waiting to attack us in the present.

 The best gift you can give yourself is to process the old messes by picking through, and getting clean with all persons, places and things. This is done through inventory, forgiving those who hurt you, feeling the wounds, and asking for healing from God and others that can help. Even if this takes the rest of your life because you have been hurt so much, it is worth the gain. You can do it in conjunction with growing in your ability to empower your thinking and adjust it to what will help you grow.

 Growing means taking those vertical steps in spirituality, thinking like a mature person, emotionally regulating your feelings so you can stay balanced as a grown up, physically taking care of yourself in every way, and finding the relationships that help you grow and partner with you in positive ways.

 Many adults look like adults in one or two ways, but other parts of them are still childish. You know these people and you and I are among them:) In this process, however, you will be known for changing and growing and not acting in the same ways as you once did. For example, if you were one who reacted angrily if things did not go the way you wanted and you now are able to stay calm when that happens, others notice. It helps you feel more in control when you don’t “fly off the handle.”

 The steps you take today to form new ways of handling old ways that would leave you caught in the fray will begin to change and you will desire to exchange peace and calmness for fighting and arguing or engaging in power struggles that just leave you exhausted. Resolving differences is still necessary, but you have new perspectives from the higher steps up the Spiritual Ladder so you see things from a new viewpoint. You also add on things like compassion, understanding, and empathy, which help take you even higher as you leave judgment and defensiveness behind.

Life starts to feel better no matter what the circumstances.

ASCENDING IS SO MUCH MORE FUN THAN FALLING DOWN (DESCENDING)

I am continuing this blog with help finding the highest paths to ascend to the best ways to awaken and stay aware of “pit falls” on your Journey. Those pits can literally be the “pits” and we all experience them. Some call them dark nights of the soul or dark “years” depending on your story. In any case, they are not what one wants to experience over and over. Climbing up out of places that trap you or bring you down is what everyone would hope to do, but may not always seem possible.

 I am laying out a path that gives you hope that you can actually ascend in ways you might not have previously imagined and find the joy that you would like to experience, but may have feared to dream about.  The first step on the ladder to climb higher is to actually begin to rule out fear. Fear, worry, and anxiety, or depressing thoughts are actually all ladders or things that take you down, not lift you up.

This is where you begin to take control.

How you live and what you attract begins with your thoughts. When you take your old thoughts (those whiney, complaining, obsessing, childish ones), and trade them in for new models of hope, faith, trust, and treat yourself to well think thoughts, you begin to head in that direction. I could make all sorts of puns here about heading this whole direction of your life up by beginning to think as the HEAD of your life instead of letting others tell you what they think or would do.

 I mean, think about it. Who knows better what is best for you than you and God, trusted guides, and your own intuition, heart and spirit? We are trained by others: parents, teachers, coaches, etc. While they could all be well meaning, they are not inside your head. They do not experience the same perception or way of seeing things as you do because they are not YOU and have not had your experiences as seen and felt by you.

If you are letting others disempower you with their thinking for you or about you, check in with yourself first and see if what is said seems true to your inner reality. Do you think one thing and say another? Watch out for that one! Does someone else have the power to ruin your day? Do you tell others what you think they want to hear? Do you blame others for your situation?  Do you let others run over you and use you for a doormat? Do you let others mistreat you? Are you angry all the time? Do you worry a lot? Do you gossip or admire how awful things are? Do you spend wasted hours distracting yourself?  Do you avoid your feelings? The list goes on, but you get the drumbeat and it does go droning on and defeats upward movement.

 

Remember: These are the slippery slopes that keep dragging all of us down.

KEEP BUILDING THOSE SPIRITUAL MUSCLES IN YOUR MIND, BODY, SOUL:

TRUE DISCERNMENT RESIDES WITHIN YOU AND BEING ABLE TO HEAR with “Ears to hear from the Spiritual Partnership of Faith over Fear is Residency you need for discerning who is real and who is false in both teaching and relationships….”

 I am ready for a new season. In the east, we call it FALL and it has a serious meaning. When I lived in California or FL, it had an entirely different meaning and even in Colorado, fall looks different from back east even when the leaves turn. In the northeast, we have tons of colors from reds to oranges and yellows. In Colorado, it is fabulous to see the aspens in the fall, but they are mostly yellow. This is not about a comparative because all places are beautiful in all seasons.

 Back to the “word” fall, however. It does have a variety of meanings whether used as a noun or verb. In this blog, I want to talk about falling as in: dropping, tumbling down, descending, plummeting, plunging, taking a nose-dive, crashing, etc. I have been writing about ascending which is the opposite of falling down. It is important to gain perspective on these two words as I mean them. In all my blogs, I am discussing how to wake up, gain higher awareness, and stay progressing UP that ladder, in spite of fear of falling.

 Many people do not know what it means to gain awareness simply because they have not been taught to seek that and think they are stuck where they are in life. Others know there is a higher way to live that will be better for them, but have no understanding of how to get that. Some people are just content to stay right where they are and accept things as they have been dealt. This blog is for the ones who are seeking to climb higher and get up out of the pit they have “fallen into” or the ruts they keep getting stuck in because of the lack of understanding.

 Falling down or feeling “overwhelmed” is normal to humans, but staying stuck is not necessary. It is what you do to climb back up after you have fallen that matters. If you have no hope or expect that you can only go up if someone else helps you, you will not be able to climb as high as you can go. So, gaining altitude in your thinking is the first step. Believing there actually are higher ways to live will lead you to what you need. It may be a person, but it will not be one that you have tried to change. It will be one in your path that is also seeking to grow and develop.

 The people who have positive attitudes and speak in tunes/tones of hope and courage are the ones you want to hang with, not the ones who are naysayers or negative in their outlook. Their energy will just bring you down time and time again. Find those who lift up your spirit, who encourage, who affirm, but who tell you the truth. You must have honest relationships or you are going to be fooled. You can begin to tell the difference if you feel renewed or even challenged when you are around them. Is your discussion exciting and vibrant or is it filled with complaining or too much people pleasing? Neither of those discussions will help you grow.

 More on climbing up vs. falling down next time…..

SPIRITUAL LADDER THINKING RULES OUT WORRY

Climbing up to Gain a Higher View and New Perspective to Leave Worry and Fear Below:)

I have been writing about staying awake in your thinking in order to keep climbing higher in your spiritual being. The more you think positive and rule out the negative thoughts, the more lightness and joy you experience. The way you think about everything can become new. You can use all the new perspectives on things to make a new meaning that shows you are growing and ascending to new heights in all areas of your life. It can be very UPLIFTING! (pun intended)

Could you answer Totally True to this statement? Peace, contentment, and joy characterize my life rather than worry and anxiety???? If you can, you are already perceiving a new life. Most people cannot say, “Yes, that is true for me.” It can be true without a doubt. There is not one thing that worry can do for you that is positive, so why do it? It does cause a lot of negativity, however.

Anxiety is the one side of life that many people can relate to due to all the stressors we have to deal with as a human. Again, what good does being anxious do? It is an energy that will impact everything and everyone else around you. It drags in the perception you need to control something or someone (which is actually not possible, but appears true). I have couples that I work with all the time who spend so much time in trying to control others using negative motivators that stem from worry and anxiety. It never helps, but does hurt!

Working on staying stable, at peace, and content requires taking charge of your thinking. The practice of obsessing or letting your mind race about something is a sure block to spiritual maturity. It blocks trusting a Power Greater than yourself to handle things while you maintain stability. Try regulating your thinking to match the outcome you desire in a positive way. Rule out the negative, pray and ask for help. Complaining and rehashing with other over and over just sets it in deeper.

It also helps to focus on gratitude for what you do have as you rule out worry and being anxious in your thinking. Breathe deeply all the time and as you exhale, let the negative energy push out of you. Breathe in gratefulness and joys with each inhale.

The other helper in thinking maturely is to rule out fear. Fear really causes havoc with hope and joy. It is possible to refocus on a new perception when you are fearful about something. That the “something” and turn it over to look at it from another angle and make a new meaning. You will soon be amazed at the peace you experience no matter what the circumstances if you practice these things regularly.

“As a man thinketh, so he is…..”

MORE ABOUT PUTTING AWAY CHILDING THINKING AND REASONING

1 Corinthians 14:20Brothers, do not be children in your thinking. Be infants in evil, but in your thinking be mature.

 Understanding that the path of spiritual growth is vertical and therefore, dependent mostly on seeking God and His Truth is all about how you think. I have spent a few blogs on pointing out that all of us need to focus on our inner thoughts and how much truth we are using at any given time. The process of maturing and growing into our highest form of self is a great experience when we begin to reap the rewards of discernment and other positives along the path.

However, the need to give up childish ways of thinking and reasoning are not so easy. We are so used to complaining, arguing, or blaming someone else for our issues. WE are just ingrained so deeply through early training to protect ourselves by lying or covering up or hiding the truth. These habits have strong holds on us and are hard to break. It is even hard to find good role models of mature thinking in our current society and culture.

This is where you need good resources and influencers. Begin to watch what you watch and what you read and whom you listen to. You will find maturity when you are seeking it. Of course, Scripture is a great place to find passages to meditate on that teach truth. I have quoted one above. Watch how children think and you will know what this means, especially, if you have a teenager who is making excuses for what they did wrong.

Power struggles, defensiveness, offensive behaviors, and all other forms of denial or evil thinking are all about ways to avoid taking adult responsibility for your life. Fighting, arguing, not speaking to others, or pretending are also on the list of immature behaviors that cause hurt to yourself and others. These are all indicators of childishness. Letting God tell you truth and teach understanding about that truth, using a perspective that fits you. If you seek this, you will find it.

Putting away immature thinking is the key to growing and maturing so you can hear truth. This is not only essential to your life, it is the essence of all of our futures to keep growing and going higher on the Spiritual Ladder:)

MATURE TRUTH DEVELOPMENT IN MIND, BODY AND SOUL: DISCERNMENT


1 Corinthians 13:11

When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.

 

The last few blogs have been on growing up in your spiritual maturity and how to keeping climbing up that vertical ladder. I have focused on living more in truth than lies. Many grown ups still have trouble telling the truth, knowing the truth, and keeping the truth growing. This causes lots of issues in all of life, but especially in personal relationships.

It is almost common to expect people will lie. It used to be that if you could prove someone was lying, there was a negative associated with that discovery. Now, it seems we can prove a public person is lying and it is no big deal or is even assumed that they do and will lie. Wow, when did it become okay to condone lying just because people do it?

If you are reading this, you are on a path of spiritual growth that desires honesty, authenticity, genuineness, and transparency. In order to get these things, you begin within. Within your own self is the only place you can make a change and that will take a lifetime of practice and prayerJ However, if everyone decides to mature and grow up, we will soon have a need kind of human being and live in a new environment.

 I quoted the Bible verse above because we all need to be raised up again. WE have heard lots of lies and cover ups all our lives. We need to begin with seeking truth and knowing it when we hear it. Taking an inventory of our own speech, thinking, and reasoning will benefit this process. If you are busy focusing on others and their deceptions, you will miss your own. Begin to listen to how you speak.

Do you tell the truth all the time? Do you speak one thing and think another? Do you say one thing and say different to another person. Do you give yourself permission to lie if it is for a good “reason?”

These are just a few questions to begin to ask yourself. They are good places to begin, as they will show you whether you are doing what you were taught as a child or ways you were taught to keep “secrets.” Until you can become honest within your own self, you will be at risk for being deceived by others.

 

Being able to tell truth from lies is a key to being able to hear God’s Truths. This is the Spiritual Partnership you need for Truth and Discernment of what really is REAL…..
