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
Other People Have No Power to Offend You There is a commonly held belief that other people can offend you. In this article I’m going to discuss why that is not the case, which might anger you or relieve you. If you want there to be a scapegoat for why you get mad, rather than to take personal responsibility for getting upset, then you won’t like the idea that no one can offend you. If, however, you want to live a life in which you never get offended, because you would be happier, then you would be relieved to hear that this is possible. A… Read More »The Real Reason You’re Offended
“One who is in alignment with Source is more powerful than millions who are not. “ Abraham-Hicks Powerlessness vs True Power Feeling Powerless As I’ve spoken about in my second podcast episode, if you focus on what you have physical control over, you feel powerful. But when you focus on what you cannot physically control, you feel powerless. The reason people who are afraid of getting COVID-19 are so terrified that others are not wearing masks (or that states are dropping the mask mandates) is because they feel they have no physical control over those people or their own health. They attempt to control others through… Read More »Cleaning the World: What Can I Do?
