How to feel good…..fast!

“Welcome the energy formerly known as disruption!”

“Invite the sensation you used to call discomfort.”

Or better yet, “Welcome rearrangement! Invite transition!”


And be ready to enjoy life more fully than ever before!

happyBhagavan would say to FEEL. To feel is to see. Freedom is in the seeing.

The ancient shamans have a secret practice that can help maximize  pleasure in life—and minimize  pain. Interested?

The shamans advise: “Welcome discomfort!”

They’ve got to be kidding!

No, they’re not kidding. The ancient ones are quite serious. Or shall I use another word other than serious? Because the effectiveness of “Welcoming discomfort!” depends on NOT taking the discomfort seriously!

Life in the 3rd Dimension

Here on Earth in the 3rd dimension, we’re engaged in a dance of duality, a ballet of opposites, a play of polarity. For every quality in our world, there exists an equal and opposite quality. Light and dark. Up and down. Forward and backward.

To create form out of pure formless energy, we construct this 3-dimensional world by believing in duality. Otherwise, we’d only be able to experience a world of oneness, sameness—pure energy, essence, spirit. And in order to experience any one quality in form, the reverse quality has to also be created in form. For one quality to exist—to come into existence, to be in existence—the opposite of that quality has to also exist.

So Where Does the Fun Come In?

happinessThe key to moving through life in our everyday world as easily, gracefully and pleasurably as possible is to be able to fully experience both sides of all qualities easily, gracefully and pleasurably. In other words, the shaman secret is an approach that keeps us from getting stuck in feeling the “undesirable” aspects of life any longer than necessary.

The shamans offer a practice that allows us to fully experience problems, loss, fear, anger, sadness or pain as efficiently as possible. If we approach the unpreferred qualities in life in a way that makes them easier to fully experience, we can move through them as fast as possible. And spend more of our time with the goodies in life.

Shortcut to Happiness

I know of no one who has been able to avoid the unpleasant events and feelings of life. So if we can’t have a universe without so-called “nasty” situations and emotions, we can at least learn how to deal with those conditions in the most effective and pleasurable way!

The Shaman Secret

The shaman way is to “welcome the discomfort” in life. Invite the uncomfortable, undesirable, unpreferred qualities of life. The solution is to make these qualities as attractive and agreeable as possible—so that we can actually welcome, invite and, therefore, fully experience each quality.

When a person chooses to fully experience a quality, event or feeling, the quality goes full circle, full cycle—and dissolves, disappears. When you give the energy of a situation or feeling the space—the acceptance—to fully express itself, the uncomfortable feeling is complete, done, fulfilled. You’re free of it. It’s over, gone, kaput. You can move on to focus on the more fun aspects of life!

How Do I Welcome Pain?

Good question! By choosing to not approach the situation or feeling as “pain.” Frame the condition with a “feel-able” label—that is, a label you’re more willing to experience. Choose a generic, neutral, uncharged label.

For example, name your “fear” “sensation”, “energy” or “vibration.” You might even be able to experience the “energy formerly known as fear” as “rush” , “adrenaline” or “intensity.”

Or call your “problem” or “crisis” a “challenge” or “situation” or even an “adventure!” Who wants to deal with a problem or crisis? Too heavy. Too serious. Too overwhelming. Too much!
Or that person you avoid because he or she is so “difficult.” Would it be more fun if you invited the “adventure” of intuitively dealing with this “challenging” person?

Fear is Excitement?

Yes! The actual energy we feel in our bodies that we usually call “fear” is the exactly the same energy as we call “excitement!” What creates the difference in our experience of the feeling is our attitude toward the feeling, our approach to the emotion, the way we hold that quality in our consciousness.

When we change the way we label or name “uncomfortable” states, the more approachable the condition is for us to feel, the easier it is for us to experience it—and therefore, the faster we move through the state to another condition that is more enjoyable.

So, if we approach undesirable states like crisis, loss, grief or anger with labels that are more easily feel-able—like situation, sensation, energy, vibration—we will be more willing and able to fully experience those states and move through them more quickly and gracefully.

When we don’t define or name the situations or feelings with a “negative” label, we don’t resist experiencing them fully.

Ride the Realization

You can also use the realization that “Oh, this is the way I set up my life. I create problems, loss, poverty, sadness and pain so that I am able to experience solutions, gain, abundance, joy, and pleasure. I’m willing to approach these states as ‘experiences’ or ‘sensations’ in order to move through them as quickly as possible to get to the other side.” On the other side of fully experiencing any aspect of life is always greater intuition and clarity—which, in turn, leads immediately to more peace and happiness.

What Are You Waiting For?

Power of words

Are you proud of every word you say?

words to destiny“Would the people I am talking about feel special if they could hear what I was saying about them?

Will My conversations, with every person feel better or worse about themselves after they walk away from me?

Do I tell the whole truth or do I add some extra juicy or gossipy bits to make the story interesting?

Does the tone of my voice make me sound harsh, aggressive or loud?

Do I use complimentary, positive words about all the people in my life or do negative words about my family, friends, team mates or strangers appear when I am angry, tired, frustrated or feeling defensive?

Do my words compliment or criticise?

Do my words pick people up or pull people down?

Do I choose to speak highly of people or would it be better if I said nothing?

Do my words add value to or devalue the people in my life?

Would I be proud of myself if all of my conversations found their way onto the radio for everyone to hear?

Can I be proud of the person I am because of the words I use?”

The company we keep

company we keep

The type of company that we keep definitely affects the mind.

To handle company that pulls
down your energy:
First, you see that you do not
get pulled down, and second,
you pull them up. Third, if you
cannot do that, then you move
away from them.

How can one measure the type of company?
If you sit and share your problem with some people, after walking away from them, if the problem appears much bigger than you ever thought, it is not good company. On the other hand, after sitting and sharing your problem with your friends, when you walk away from them, if it appears as though the problem was nothing, you were unnecessarily worrying, it does not exist, then that is very good company. This is how you should measure company.

When you leave the company, if you go out with much enthusiasm, with a positive feeling, or your energy is pulled down and you feel negative, accordingly you can label your company.

Now if you find that someone’s company is pulling you down all the time, you do not have to avoid it, you simply have to know that they pull down your energy; the next time, you refuse to be pulled down, rather pull them up!

positiveThere are two ways to handle company that pulls down your energy:
1) Pull people out of their negative syndrome – If the company of your spouse or friend is pulling you down, and you feel that you want to avoid them, how many people can you avoid? It is impossible! Instead you step in, refuse to be pulled down, and instead say that I am going to pull them up now! You pull them out of their negative syndrome, that way you are influencing them rather than getting influenced, and this is what we need to do.

2) Recognize people, do not label them, nobody is negative the entire time – Do not label a person as always negative, it is not possible. It is just very comparative, very relative; sometimes they are negative, and sometimes they are positive.

Thus, first, you see that you do not get pulled down, and second, you pull them up. Third, if you cannot do that, then you move away from them.
So, company also affects the mind!

How to abolish limiting beliefs

Are you financially independent?

Would you call yourself confident?

Are your relationships as rewarding and fulfilling as you want?

Don’t be alarmed.

If you’re like most people, the answer will be NO to at least one, if not all of the above questions…

It may be your limiting beliefs that are holding you back!
HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS…

Think of an area of your life that you’re not happy with.
Quickly grab a pen and paper and ask yourself “Why haven’t I achieved what I want?”

HINT: The answer to this question must always begin with “Because I…”

Write down the first thing that comes to mind.
Then ask the question “Why?” of what you wrote down.

Keep going on like this until you hit your core belief, you’ll know it when it you get there.

————————————————
“WHY?”…IS THE MAGIC WORD.
————————————————

The KEY is to continue asking yourself the question:
“Why?”…until you dig through to your real core belief.

It may take a few minutes or sometime longer, you just need to keep at it. You can take a break if you need to, you don’t have to do it in one session.

Make sure that you don’t take it too seriously –  Have fun with it! Write down the ridiculous answers, you will be surprised where they may lead you.

It’s all about having some FUN and relaxing.

————————————————
NO LOGIC!
————————————————

Oh – I should let you know that a limiting belief will not be based on any real logic.

Which means…

Once you’ve discovered a limiting belief that’s holding you back…

And, you realize it’s merely this harmful “belief” that’s preventing you from achieving your dreams…

You can now:

1. Change that belief to one that works for you.

2. Develop a new and much more powerful mindset around your goal!

3. Finally begin seeing your dreams and goals unraveling in your life, with a new vigor and excitement!

Learning to let go!

How much do you choose to be unhappy?

When you hold on to negative thoughts, feelings or habits, do you have choice?

Are you struggling  with something that happened yesterday, last month or years ago?

Can you choose to let go!  In a flash!  Right now!
Choose your mindset!

It seems hard to believe that people actually choose to spend time worrying or dwelling negatively on things that can’t be changed and yet that is exactly what happens every single day. I’ve done it. You’ve done it. We’ve all had episodes in our lives where we’ve allowed negativity to steal the best of us.

If you’re holding on to negative thoughts right now … perhaps worrying about that job interview you messed up, or dwelling on the horrible things someone once said to you, or angry at yourself for acting badly in a heated moment, or thinking with regret about the things you should have done when you had the opportunity, and so on … then it’s time to have a clear out and let go of all the feelings and habits that don’t support you.

Start by being mindful of your self-talk … that inner dialogue that may be feeding your attachment to what has been and gone.

Every time a negative thought, feeling or habit rears its head, replace it with a positive.

This will take some time and dedication but, as you become aware of the thoughts and habits that dominate your day, you can change your outlook and perspective. Importantly, you can take back your valuable ‘now’ time and be happier and contented.

So, take time to invest in yourself. Begin today. Let go of redundant thoughts, emotions, and habits and start living in the present. It’s a gift that you’ll soon learn to cherish.

Have a positive day!
