In the book Before Happiness, Shawn Achor discusses how simply knowing about the benefits of stress can cause you to not have as many physical symptoms that are normally associated with distress. He writes, “Those who had watched the video highlighting the enhancing rather than debilitating effects of stress reported a 23 percent drop in physical symptoms associated with distress (such as headaches, backaches, fatigue). What’s more, on a scale of 1 to 4, productivity assessment moved from 1.9 to 2.6-nearly a 30 percent increase.” He was comparing groups who had watched a video about the negative effects of stress and those who watched a… Read More »Being Thankful for Stress
In this article, I’m going to share how I actually use the Ho’oponopono Cleaning process in my life and what comes out of it. I do this to show how it can be used to re-set your perspectives or beliefs on a specific subject, usually something that’s angering or scaring you. When you change your beliefs, then your emotional response will change. What Bugs Me I am well aware of what bugs me, and one of those things is bugs. For some reason, I get put into that fight or flight response when I see them. Something must have happened when I was young. I… Read More »Ho’oponopono in Practice
You are so powerful. I know all about the various limiting beliefs that we tell ourselves. I’ve had interactions with people who keep wanting to tell me how powerless we all are. The most pushback I get is concerning racism, and the idea of mine that the Black Lives Matter movement has a victim mentality. Our society keeps telling us how difficult a problem like racism is to solve. If you are told your whole life that it’s difficult and that it’s systemic, then that is what you will believe even when/if it’s not true. Of course, this self-defeating mindset is not limited to racism.… Read More »You are Powerful
Criminally insane killers and rapists were sent to Hawaii State Hospital and were healed without ever meeting Ihaleakala Hew Len, Ph.D. It’s a remarkable tale. In the past, I’ve written about The Maharishi Effect where groups meditating together were able to lower crime in the surrounding area. But in this case, it was one individual, and he was performing the Hawaiian mindful practice Ho’oponopono. Dr. Hew Len asked himself, “What is going on with me, that I am experiencing this?” By practicing Ho’oponopono, He took 100% accountability for their mental health problems and healed them. Taking Responsibility Frees You The majority of people today reject… Read More »How Dr. Len Healed The Criminally Insane Without Meeting With Them
A lot of people in this law of attraction field use affirmations. Affirmations are short mantras to affirm to yourself that the things that you want to happen are already happening. Because what you believe, you perceive. If you believe that you are healthy, and you focus in on that belief, then that is what you will see more of in your life. Your brain is like a camera in that it can focus on a specific idea while allowing everything else to become blurry. When you focus in on something it grows larger and you can see it more clearly. Using affirmations helps you… Read More »Using Affirmations To Attract What You Want
Hearing the Prosecutor suggest Kyle Rittenhouse should have just taken the beating rather than defend himself with a gun amazed me. But, after thinking about it a little longer, it really shouldn’t amaze me. I see how this belief is playing out in our United States everywhere. Because we’re not really united, are we? People Project Their Fears Externally A large segment thinks just carrying a gun is provocation. But that’s the same as saying just wearing a short skirt means you were looking to get raped. I mentioned in a previous article that the fear of guns would disappear if the affected person got… Read More »Should you “Take the Beating” or Defend Your Boundaries?
2020 has been the perfect year for hindsight concerning the effects of either taking personal responsibility or blame shifting / scapegoating. When you believe there is something “bad” happening in your personal reality and it is someone else’s fault rather than your own, you are shifting the blame from you onto someone else. This is also called scapegoating. Scapegoating is the practice of singling out a person or group for unmerited blame and consequent negative treatment. Of course, people will say (and truly believe) the blame is merited when they’re doing it. I’m sure you’ve done this, because, even though I’m very aware of it,… Read More »Taking Personal Responsibility Empowers & Frees You
Where is freedom born and bred, in the heart or in the head? Many people today are responding to life through their emotions. Something will happen, they will have an emotion, and off they go responding to the emotion because they feel like they are powerless and life just happens to them. For instance, a woman recently tweeted: “I saw a child wearing a ‘Trump 2020’ mask at school today and I wanted to literally burn him alive.” There was an activating event or action (A), in this case it was that she saw a child wearing a specific mask, and then there was a… Read More »Your Beliefs Can Lead To Freedom or Slavery
