Ho’oponopono in Practice

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 Powerful

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

Should you “Take the Beating” or Defend Your Boundaries?

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?

Why Communism Can’t Work

There’s a lot of speculation happening that some people are trying to implement a form of communism in the United States right now. The people who have this idea have a core fear. The core fear is that, somehow, people could steal their personal resources, health or wealth, for what others believe is the “common good.” However, there are a myriad of reasons why it can never work. Defining Communism Wikipedia’s Definition For the sake of common ground, I’ll start with sharing definitions of communism. Wikipedia defines it like this: “Communism (from Latin communis, ‘common, universal’) is a philosophical, social, political, and economic ideology and… Read More »Why Communism Can’t Work

The Real Reason You’re Offended

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

Cleaning the World: What Can I Do?

“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 that 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?

Taking Personal Responsibility Empowers & Frees You

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) that the blame is merited when they’re doing it. I’m sure you’ve done this, because, even though I’m very aware of… Read More »Taking Personal Responsibility Empowers & Frees You
