AWARD WINNING TERROR FILMS, AWFUL FILMS, PERIL FILMS RECOGNIZED

(Happy Halloween!)

I have warned you that I love plays on words and the use of language to give double or more than one meaning for effect. In this blog, I want to use the word recognize

Meanings of Recognize: to know and give acknowledgement and accept its power and authority; to be fully aware of; to spot or discern and detect; to perceive or show approval of and to exhibit something.

I am using recognize in all of the above ways to give meaning to how we use fear as a way to scare and give power to things that did not happen in the past, or may have happened once or twice to us; or that we perceive could possibly happen in the future. So, just thinking and giving recognition to any circumstance we associate with fear can lead to being scared that it will happen and taking it to an awful outcome can project it onto our mental screen ready for projection.

Once we project anything awful or scary in the way of a thought and make a movie out of it, we are actually doing two things to our cognition (the result of perception, learning and reasoning). We are planting a negative seed of fear, watering it with awful worry, and those two things can grow an entire environment within us that I am going to call, SCARE CITY. Once we have chosen to live under the influence of this city, we are going to experience scarcity and lack our full power to remain mindful and calm in the present.

Allowing yourself to go under the influence of anything creates a mindset that is altered (like drugs or alcohol, etc.) because the mind is a powerful place that creates drama, illusions, and anything that can be created, both negatively and positively. This sets up a trance effect, or sort of hypnotic effect that influences you either some of the time, or when you feel threatened or fearful.

Operating out of a fear-based mindset is a constant film of some kind of worry, dread, horror, distress, anxiety, fright, alarm, apprehension, panic, anxiety, and numerous kinds of depressing thoughts. IS THAT REALLY what you want to create for yourself?

 An even bigger problem with giving award winning attention to the fears of life that “can” happen, and do is an actual attraction to allow energy to develop that may draw them to you. I am not saying people create awful, but I am saying that a spirit of fear filming everyday in your mind does create a sense of Terror (you look at the world around you with terror eyes), a sense of peril (peril eyes will paralyze you) or any other negative sensing. You are looking for awful and you will find it.

Conversely, if you trust that you can stay present with a feeling of calm, you are not living under the influence of anxiety and depression, which will create a sense of wellness and a positive spirit that will invite that to you. You feel peace and serenity, therefore, you attract things that are good and loving. If a negative force does come your way, you will have the presence of mind to deal with it in a non-fearful way, which could actually save your life!

EACH TIME YOU CHOOSE SERENITY AND POSITIVE OVER FEARFUL AND SCARE CITY, YOU GAIN NEW PERCEPTIONS THAT LEADS YOU TO A HIGHER QUALITY OF LIFE AND JOY:)

THE GUILTY FILM PROJECTOR

It seems there is just so much to say about the old false belief systems that get set up around fear, guilt and obligations (of “should have” and “ought to”).

It is the never-ending story of all our lives. My writing today is centered on the outcomes of a life based on false guilt or contamination from false guilt that is still residing within a person. False guilt from others leaves a “film” in us and on us that makes us predisposed to shame. A layering of guilt imposed from others creates and ongoing inner movie with voices and dialogues that all begin with “I should have…….” And the blank is always filled in with hindsight based on a guilty film that someone else piled on long ago and the host of the film continues to pile on themselves.

 For the record, we all have our inner movies and film clips that we play over and over that contain “should haves” and “should not haves” that tie us up in knots. It is so important to get quiet enough and mindful enough in the present to listen to your own voice and how you talk to self and others. It is so habitual and familiar to second-guess self after the fact or regarding how you handled a situation; it is more than “second nature” to us all. Awakening to your language around guilting yourself by this hindsight judgment is very damaging to your inner being.

To be clear, we all need to take a look back and learn a lesson from anything we feel we mishandled. However, the look back is for evaluation and assessment, not for making a Lifetime Movie or Film that is played over and over constantly adding new frames of the same mantra: “I should have_______.” Or “I should not have__________.”

The goal is to assess, evaluate, process the information through mind, body and spirit and then, set an intention that creates a new way of handling similar events in the future out of an honest self. DROP the guilt right away. It is over. Do not leave the film of guilt in place like a nasty bathtub ring! It will take a long time to scour that mess off your inner linings:) It also quickly turns into shame that fills the entire tub and leaves an even BIGGER ring to recycle in (poison channel).

 Along with “should haves/have nots” are the “ought to_____” voices. This is the film of false guilt for the future. So, the film of Guilt Projection plays out on the Screen of Life from crazy thoughts that whack you around both from the past and a future that has not played out yet. You just set it up for coming attractions to guilt yourself for what you ought to do about whatever you are making up. It is almost always guilt induced and coming from a false belief system. This cycling keeps you under the influence of your own “Terror Show” that you project over and over. It usually gets projected out of others as well as it has to be shared in some way.

 Please ask yourself if you spend a lot of time Framing yourself under the influence of Guilt and Shame Projection, either on yourself or others. If so, ask yourself how you can keep from watching that same old, SHAME old movie that you just keep replaying!

LOVING THE WORK OF AWAKENING AND FINDING HIGHER WAYS TO BE

 Continuing to drop fear and pick up faith, drop guilt and shame, and pick up self-love and mercy can be the most loving work you will ever do for you. You are finding ways to be fulfilled and filled with loving the life you are living. Of course, there are losses to grieve and suffering to process, but the feeling that you are being honest with yourself and others is keeping you out of old trances and that feels good.

You will begin to connect to that inner lost child of yours and let that child develop its own feelings about self and others. This leads to an order of change. You can feel the Divine Spirit working in you to bring out the love and appreciation for the unique ways you see things and think about life. The growth of the touch points with your inner being connects with the feelings you put away long ago during the time of early survival. You begin to touch depths of yourself that have long been hidden and covered over or piled high with the “dirt” of life.

Advocating and fighting for that person inside of you to grow up and face your own reality is like a butterfly working its way out of the cocoon. It is hard work, but when you keep being your own champion and loving that self inside, growth happens. As new ways of being and caring are developed, self-value and determination to keep the process moving arise. New notions of love and feelings open up and grow.

You are really being raised up again to a new birth of you, the authentic you without the baggage of the past. You feel free to unpack the old stuff and get rid of it or give it back to its original owner (in the case of others dumping shame on you or scapegoating and blaming their stuff on you). You feel free and at liberty to speak your own truth and reality as to how you see things, even when it does not match the perspective of others.

Also, the masks you used to wear (like, being nice when you didn’t want to or not being present with the person you were with, but pretending to be interested) will drop off and you will share honestly how you are feeling instead of making “nice.” It is important during this time to be a curious observer instead of a judging person of self or others. The new honesty and mask dropping can be a little annoying if you are not using good boundaries or filters. Just practice staying grounded and in balance with your observations without the judgments.

Affirm, affirm, and keep affirming that you are growing and developing and that you will ease up once that person in side of you becomes more comfortable with being vulnerable and exposed. There will be less need to defend self and less desire to offend anyone else in any way. This is the part that is really exciting. It makes life so much easier to just love yourself and others in spite of their flaws, but also feeling empowered to share what you would like to see changed.

 It is a process that just keeps getting better one day at a time…..

It is a process that just keeps getting better one day at a time…..

FINDING THE PATH OUT OF FEAR-BEGINNING THE PROCESS OF HONEST LIVING

It is definitely scary to be honest about things. Most people would rather hear lies or not talk about things that are “awkward.”  However, if your life becomes so unmanageable either through addictions, relationship issues, crisis, or just so much chaos and busyness that it is unmanageable, you will want to get off the crazy cycle. The need to hide is the unmanageable part, really. It is self destructive to live in fear and pretend things do not bother you or be so angry all the time that you drive others away. This is not living!

The best way to stop a trance life is to take baby steps such as joining a group, talking to a therapist, or a spiritual advisor. Getting honest with just one safe person can open a window to more and more honesty. You are breaking an old pattern of just going through the same old motions and cycles with no change except for the worse.

The choice to take the first step leads to a willingness to take more steps and soon, it is a new path that is your interest. You get a taste of freedom to be yourself and if feels good. Coming out of the trance is simple, but difficult. Friends and family can be the least helpful. Many times, they do not like your changes. It is often uncomfortable for them to know the truth about you or to have you stop being the way you used to be. You will need help and support from others who are invested in coming out of their trances to encourage you to stay on the path.

Awareness is a real key. You can read a book or go to a workshop or whatever, but it is important to find resources that help you understand how to dismantle the old coping mechanisms you were using and why you set them up in the first place. Just seek and you will find what you need. I am always amazed at what comes across people’s paths when they are trying to recover or uncover the mystery of their real identity or seeking out treatment for past trauma and unresolved issues.

 In the beginning of the process of coming out of the trance, it can be very exciting in ways of discovery of self. As I said, however, it is difficult as the process can begin to seen never-ending which is why you need love, support and encouragement from others who are doing the same work. Try to find a way that works for you and just stay with it for a while as you grow in consciousness and awakening.

Consistency will bring you relief and the feelings of shame will reduce down. You will begin to understand all humans are flawed and have the same hidden issues and are victims of a multigenerational dysfunction process. This created more and more of same behavioral modeling and the need to hide what was not wanted.

Just stay connected to you in healthy loving ways and to others who are doing likewise!

SHOWING FACE AND NOT WALKING IN FEAR OF VULNERABILITY

Most humans have an inner fear that is like a constant low-grade fever, of being exposed to being hurt or attacked. The fear of vulnerability is exactly based on that fear. We all fear being exposed, shamed or found “naked.” All of us carry hidden secrets that we would not want known to others so we save face by showing only what we want seen. This helps us “save face” and control outcomes (or so we think).

It is not really possible to hide and walk around fearing without putting on some false front or using old defenses. We have those defenses that were set up in childhood or when we were much younger, but we keep using them long after they are needed because they work so well. Staying hidden and only showing a face we want to present so others will like us or think well of us is a dangerous lifestyle.

I say dangerous because the longer we live with the fear of being made vulnerable, the harder it is to show up authentically. The old way of hiding and pretending seems easier and our thoughts begin to match that habit. Once we have lived that way for years, the false self seems more like the real self and we live out of that person. Many people come to therapy so defended that they are clueless as to who they are or ever were.

 Opening up and embracing your “shame” is a first step in the choice to get a willingness to become more vulnerable. It is a process that will take time. Taking a look in the mirror and seeing yourself for real is hard to do, but it begins with positive self-talk and a willingness to open up and be honest. Talking honestly to yourself is the first step and speaking honestly with some others in a safe environment is the next step.  Safe groups are a great place to practice vulnerability. You can begin to restore interpersonal relationships in a setting where others are attempting the same thing, which puts you all in the same “boat.”

The original rupture of connecting honestly with others came from a deep mistrust that it was safe to do that, most often this is rooted back in childhood and home base. Well meaning and toxic parents both send messages to children that they need to be ashamed of how they are behaving. Over time, this creates a need to hide behaviors that are less than stellar. Adapting to what/who others need you to be goes on in home, school, team sports, and most everywhere during the early developmental years.

 I have written a lot about the trance effect on us when we hide and adapt and keep adapting. It is like hypnosis in that we walk around in a trance of others conditions. This haunts us long after we are no longer living with or even near the ones who conditioned the trance. The post hypnotic suggestions live inside us as constant voices of fear, obligation, and guilt. They are on auto-pilot and drive us to keep hiding until we make the choice to wake up or are forced into awakening because we have become aware of how powerless and out of control our life has become with the use of this false self over time.               TO BE CONTINUED….

MEDITATING TO MAINTAIN

 Maintaining wellness so you can keep Awake and Aware is done through the daily practice of using some form of meditation. Think of it as a daily medication called:

MEDITATION

Meditation is a form of medication that will most likely cut down on the need for other meds!!! It keeps us humans centered and grounded each day. It is best if you can start your day with this practice. I am not talking about sitting cross-legged and just doing what some other person thinks would help you.

I am talking about checking in with your inner being consciously in a quiet place expecting to gain conscious contact with your Higher Power. You can use a reading or a prayer or just silence, but it is a time that you intend to contemplate and get quiet –BE STILL, calm, relaxed, turn off the outer and the inner noise.

What is meditation doing for you? It is doing a variety of things. One main thing is focus. WE are so distracted all day long that this time is a time for reflection on things that matter only to us. Getting quiet with those thoughts brings focus and clarity. Anxiety rules the brain without this intentional quiet time.

 Contemplative time also sets the tone for the day. Beginning peacefully instead of running out the door in a frenzy is like setting an intention. It is a day that I can remain calm, just like I felt when I began my day. It helps ease into the flurry of the rest of the day. The tone and thoughts you create in the stillness of the morning will help carry you through any chaos of the rest of the day.

Living life on the run never gives the mind a chance to connect with the rest of you so the meditations and morning quiet will be a time to connect with breathing and your inner spirit. You can check in with your body and see how you are feeling in your muscles, joints and other places. Many people do not feel their pain, until it is too late and they have stressed themselves to a point of over exhausting themselves.

 There are innumerable benefits to mediation in the spiritual realms, as you will hear the way to be led by Spirit and how you can differentiate that voice. Only you will be able to know what and how it sounds, as it is personal to you. It will be uplifting and meant to help guide you so it is a connection that everyone needs.

 Try to imagine how spending just a little time with yourself quietly each day can enhance and maintain your spiritual growth. Write down what you imagine and see if it comes to pass. Just try it as an experiment at first. I predict that you will soon see blessings multiplied from this practice.

  Stay mindful and present and aware that you are working in new ways to add joy!

SELF CARE ADDITIVES THAT OVERCOME OLD TRANCES

Practicing positive self-care requires staying mindful of the daily practice. It is essential to add new practices as to surrender to old ways of thinking and being. IN order for the new to become a habitual way, you need that INTENTION I have written about previously. Willingness is an additive that keeps intentions moving.

Positive self-care begins with the practice of faith over fear. Fear caused the old foggy trance and sleep way of living or going through the motions. Covering fear with loving self-care and having the faith those things will improve if you add more ways to take care of yourself in a healthy way. So, faith becomes and Essential Oil to shifting gears. Trust yourself and your faith in God to get you where you desire to be. Desires are the additive that is going to multiply peak experiences. (of course, I do not mean unhealthy desires that destroy or hurt you).

Staying awake to that beautiful internal self of yours means paying attention to you. This is not selfish. Selfishness comes from the opposite-people who do not pay attention to their own business, mind and judge yours. Or, people who do not have healthy inner thoughts toward themselves are out to rob you of feeling good about yourself. Listen to the truth of your inner reality and it will Guide you because it is your spirit combining with THE Holy Spirit. This creates a way of being you that wants no harm for you or anyone else.

You can tell when you slip back into a trance by how you feel about yourself. If you feel positive, hopeful, kind, loving thoughts (not thoughts of better than others), you will be present with yourself. If you feel negative and judgmental or have an attitude of victim or entitlement or any other negative mindset about yourself or others, you are not fully awake. Find out what is holding those mindsets and release them. Again, this will take work and inventory and TIME.  The additive of time to stop and meditate or contemplate is another way to overcome the old trance.

 Always replace the old non-essential oils (or gummy grease:) with Positive Essence that you feel is real in you. For example, if you feel you are a generous person, affirm it and behave in generous ways. Always link thoughts and feelings with action and some kind of physical evidence. Conversely, if you feel grumpy and mean, find out where that “dirty grease” is coming from to gum up your inner being. Your inner self along with God’s truth will help you get to the bottom of your mood.

 One of the best additives is compassion, for self and others. It is easy to be human and fearful. You need help and compassion for yourself is a great help. It does not help to guilt or shame you. Just create a positive attitude and go back and clean up a mess you have made if you are feeling guilty or convicted. THEN, forgive yourself, and the other person if there is a need to do that, let it go and move on.

 Stay mindful and present and aware that you are working in new ways to add joy!

SOMETHING IS MISSING

The feeling that something is missing comes from the empty places that were once filled with whatever you once filled them with, such as people, things, or even anxious and depressing thoughts. A racing mind is always busy obsessing, doing, or planning some adventure to escape the “rat race.” Humans find all sorts of things to distract and busy or occupy their mind. When that business or busyness slows down, life may seem boring or like something is missing.  It feels like a pull from within or a nagging sense that you need to get up and go do something.

Understanding that this feeling of empty or something is missing is your brain running from the old program. When you stay calm and patient, things will show up that you desire if you are willing to wait for that manifestation. Only when you come into full maturity does the sense of uneasy or something missing fully dies or falls away. You can assist its death by affirming you have all you need and what you really want is on its way.

You can also begin to intentionally take the automatic negative thought of something is missing and bind it up as you replace it with other thoughts that you intend to believe, but haven’t quite mastered yet. For example: “I am creating a whole person within that is calm, relaxed and self assured.” As you begin to affirm that you have all you need right now and stay present with that, your problems take on new ways of being worked out. You flow with them more than resist with negative energy.

You can certainly also affirm that you can trust the Higher Love that is coming from the truly Divine One that loves you and will continue to take care of you in prosperous ways. The old fears that gathered momentum are now being overridden by Ultimate Truth and the Love from the One who created all you see and are now unfolding. As you feel at ease to trust more in what you cannot see, the more the dis-ease of fear and lack diminish. Trust the process that the more you let go, the more you gain what you truly desire.

It is important to not argue against the thought that something is missing, but stay positive and dream about what you would love to be doing or how you would be if you could make a new outer reality. Thinking about what you would love to be doing is the first step in transitioning to that dream becoming a reality. The inner desire you have integrates with your belief and you begin to set a heartfelt intention towards it.

 Next, your intuition leads you in the way to go or things start coming in that you have no idea how they happened, but they are exactly what you need to soar higher in your dream. This is the Spiritual Process in motion and you just know you are Awake to it. You are intoxicated by its energy because it is the Power of God alive in you working with you as an expression of the Divine!

Never give up faith in your inner wisdom and intuition; the Divine Spirit within:)

ALLOWING AWARENESS TO CONTINUE THROUGH SURRENDER

Many people have awakened to becoming enlightened. In the past few decades, there has been an influx of books and talks and groups of people who have gained consciousness. These people are well aware of the true self within and, that the old ego and negative thinking has caused a lot of dysfunction. They understand the power of positive thinking and how to manifest through positive vibrational energy of attraction.

However, there is still a lack of surrender to Oneness and giving up control or letting go of any need to force anything to happen. Most have only a glimpse of the full idea about what this entails so there is still a resistance to living as a wholly integrated being.  Awakening is like an invitation to a Party. You receive the invitation, but you have to accept it and respond. Furthermore, you must continue to plan for the party and actually show up intending to partake of whatever it is about. Getting knowledge of an event or a party does not mean you actually attended.

The word, tend is an important word in the process of growing awareness once you are awake. You must tend to: which means to have care of or to look after and manage.  Tending to your mind and staying MINDFUL of what is going on in it is a full time job. Our minds tend to race away from us and separate from what we really want to do. Our minds are like young children who need looking after. You never know where your childish mind will run away to:)

 The word tend is also part of the idea of an intention. When you INTEND to do something, you set a focus on it. You have it in mind and purpose. You put all your energy into it as you really mean to plan and aim to achieve the goal of your intention. If you can pluralize it and turn the intention of gaining higher consciousness into all my intentions are focused on that goal, you will begin to see amazing growth. This One intention will set your mind free of old, enslaving mindsets.

 Understanding and new ways of thinking and perceiving things follow desire. When I desire to grow higher, I do. There is a Loving God who is pursing me in this process so I will supernaturally be attracted to the places that free me up from old mindsets. It follows then that I no longer need to be enslaved to old mindsets of victim or lack or fear. I recognize that my truth is calling me to join with it in pursuit of my dreams. I have what I need right in my own mind and I have a Partner who will help me to find the supply to meet my needs! This way of thinking will take your mind to new dimensions and attract all you desire and more. The difference from the desires are that they are now completely in your best interest AS WELL AS in the best interest of all those you come into conscious contact with (and even those who are not as conscious or awake as you are kept from dragging you away from your intentions manifesting). 

 Becoming sensitive to awakening and being aware is all it really takes to get the positive momentum of this process flowing and keeping it moving is the “E-motion of like and love” that you will naturally bring to the process. The unfolding of your inner self is so exciting that it becomes intrinsically motivating to see what will come up next that you never “knew or saw” in the ways you are seeing (perceiving) it nowLetting go is not so scary (fearful) as it was at one time because you now know it is not a dark space of empty, but rather a full well of more than you had ever hoped or imagined. You also know the Higher Power in more personal ways and you TRUST that this power is becoming alive right within you!!!!

 Again, try setting an intention and tending to it! What have you got to lose?

STAYING FOCUSED, INTENTIONAL, AND CONSCIOUS OF ONENESS

Last time I outlined the continuing of this process of awakening and staying aware, in that you really are living in a whole new way. The key word is Whole, which means that you are not split or fragmented any more. You are at peace and in oneness with yourself. There is less back and forth or up and down. There is a new calmness that allows you to focus on this feeling at one with self. The voices of doubt and fear are not as loud as they once were.

In order to stay focused in the present and out of those old paradigms of the past that terrorized you: (fear, doubt, guilt, obligation, or any other negative energies), you must continue letting go of control. Your mind will continue to remind you of fear, etc., but you have the power to master and overcome the deceptions or illusions. Tell yourself that YOU will attract what you desire, but you cannot completely crossover if you continue to have one part of you in awakened awareness and another part still clinging to the past ways.

Again, letting go is a process that may take months or years. It depends on many things such as: how long you were living in denial, how much of a load you were carrying, how ingrained in addictions or other immaturities, etc. There are many variables and the process is unique to each person. Try to never compare yourself with another. Just be thankful that you entered the awakening at all because many spend an entire lifetime in denial.

Our ego (false self) is very strong and it has a tremendous pull toward the negative energy so it is hard to let it go due to years of identification with it along with the societal pull to keep it in place. Some humans decide to try to compromise between letting go and staying in control. This is a painful way to live if you intentionally decide to try it. Most of us did that dual practice for a while, but little by little, had to let go. That is the best way as letting go mostly never happens all at once unless there is a radical situation that forces it.

Just know that you will have help along the way from others that have been through what you are going through. If you are willing to set an intention to let go and trust God to take care of things that you can’t, you will be amazed at the help you get and how easy life becomes to stay more in maturity than childish ways. It feels very empowering and adds so much calm balance.

Never give up faith in your inner wisdom and intuition; the Divine Spirit within:)
