“If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends. If broken by an inside force, life begins. Great things always begin from the inside.” Jim Kwik
I love the picture I get when I think of a tiny bird or chick breaking the shell of their egg from the inside. If you understand the power your mind has to create whatever it is that you want in life, then you will realise that we are no different than these tiny birds. What ideas have you had that you are not letting ‘break free’ into reality? What is the ‘shell’ that is holding that idea from breaking through into the reality of your life? Are you aware of that creative impulse and you really want to do something about it, or are you putting your head in the sand and ignoring that life giving energy that is telling you to go after something else in your life?
The science continues to come through backing up what has been said for a couple of milleniums. We can create, or co-create depending on your beliefs, your reality. So many of us have been brought up to believe that, “this is the way my life is and that is the way it will continue to be.” But the science is showing that those beliefs are no longer considered to be true. Just like when people had to face the reality that the world isn’t flat. It can be hard to wrap our heads around when we have held a certain belief for so long. Those things we have dreamed about could change the life of not only ourselves and our family, but maybe have even bigger impact further afield. So what is it that you have been incubating in the sand of your life? Is it time to let it break free from the constraints of that heavy sand? Is this email enough for you to say, “Dammit, I’ll get started with a small step today?”
Enjoy shaking the weight of that sand off your shoulders and take that first baby step!
“Loving people living in a loving world. Hostile people live in in a hostile world. Same world. Wayne Dyer
I have an audio recording of Wayne Dyer talking about an incident where he was walking along the beach & met some people coming in the opposite direction. They exchanged words. The couple were new to the district so they were asking Wayne what sort of people lived there. His reply was to ask them where were they from and how had they found living there. They had only complaints and grizzles about their old town. Wayne replied that they would probably find the people here the same.
A little further down the beach he met another couple who stopped to talk. They also were new to the district and asked Wayne about the people in their new area. He replied by asking them also about how had they found the town that they had come from. Their reply was to say how lovely the people were and how much they were going to miss them. Wayne replied that they would probably find the people here the same.
I have never forgotten that short story about the expectations that we have of our environment and how we can influence it purely because of how we think and engage with those around us. Knowing this story, I was able to apply this principle to a situation I was in. I was feeling decidedly ‘out’ of circulation with those around me at an event. That night I purposely changed my view of how it would be the next day so that I wouldn’t go in expecting the same relationships. My day was completely different and how I had envisioned it being the night before. That taught me a big lesson about how much we can influence the outcomes in our lives.
Enjoy influencing your life’s outcomes!
“Acquire the courage to believe in yourself. Many of the things that you have been taught were at one time the radical ideas of individuals who had the courage to believe what their own hearts and minds told them was true, rather than accept the common beliefs of their day.” Ching Ning Chu
I am just re-reading “The Biology of Belief,” by Bruce Lipton. It is a powerful book & this present edition is the 10th. Our knowledge about beliefs is growing all the time, so he is constantly having to rewrite some parts to keep up with the new knowledge. He talks about the human brain being able to acquire perceptions from our teachers, and once we accept these perceptions as truths they become hardwired into our brains and then become truths. These truths that we have taken on from parents, significant adults, siblings and teachers, may be inappropriate and limiting and definitely habitual. All his research leads to the fact that our beliefs control our biology.
We also have an inner knowing that may refute the knowledge we are fed from those in authority. An example is that of the pharmaceutical companies who are pushing hard to have us believe that their drugs are the miracle cure for whatever. There are more and more people choosing to believe a different message, to make up their own minds about whether they want to resort to drugs with the side effects or not. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t use the prescriptions that are available, but as Ching Ning Chu is saying, we have the choice to follow a different message if our hearts and minds decide it is in our best interest, to have the courage to ignore those common beliefs, of the medical profession and pharmaceutical companies.
Enjoy standing up for what your heart and mind decide is right for you!
“Do all you can, with what you have in the time you have, in the place you are.” Nkosi
Nkosi was 12 when he died from aids. Before he did he became known for this quote as he influenced those around him with his spirit for life.
What is the one thing that, if you practised on a regular basis, you know, would improve your life? There is no growth in your comfort zone. Nature uses a birth canal to bring about new life. So if you’re feeling squeezed right now, it is because something is seeking to be born in you today. Breaking free of our negative conditioning requires us to challenge the limiting thoughts we have & take a step no matter how small, away from the conditioning we know is keeping us small.
If this resonates with you, make a decision that for a week you will take a little step today & tomorrow. In a weeks time you will be able to look back & see the progress you have made, without the judgement that it hasn’t been enough. If you continue to do this for a year you will have taken 365 steps towards your desires/dream – more than if you hadn’t taken any at all.
Enjoy doing all you can from where you are!
