365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 205: Inner Harmony Creates Health

healthy

Our beliefs find the way to manifest in our bodies, creating either healthy, youthful physiques or a plethora of discomfort levels and conditions, depending on what we feel to be true.

“The ones who came before us” (as Gregg Braden refers to our ancestors) knew that the physical health of the human body depends on the understanding of the spiritual, emotional, mental, energetic and physical aspects of who we are. The concept goes back to the times of Ayurveda, ancient Chinese Medicine and Native Indian Medicine to name just a few.

Some of us believe that the body will be in a state of health if we eat and sleep well, exercise, drink water and do not carry genes that make us more prone to certain diseases. But these are all related to the physical body and we are not just physical. The physical body is responding to all the aspects of who we are by manifesting health or discomfort and disease.

We physically manifest what we believe.

We can choose to change our eating habits, how much we exercise and decide to take a few extra days of rest, but before we truly believe that we can attain and maintain health we will not witness the extraordinary capacity for recovery and regeneration that our physical bodies have!

When we are in harmony with all the aspects of ourselves, our bodies vibrantly reflect a general state of health and well-being.

I believe that creating lasting and vibrant health is not only possible but only a few beliefs away!

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 72: Shattering False Limits

RUCSANDRA's PICTUREHave you ever had the experience of creation? Of course you have. And so have I. The great question is what is it that you are creating? Are you creating what you truly want or are you allowing into your life experiences that you do not desire?

Scientists have proven over and over that all energy is interconnected with all energy everywhere. They have shown that this energy is receptive to the human thought and takes the form communicated to it by the beliefs of the observer. Quantum physics teaches us that we have the power to change the world around us through the thoughts that stem from our beliefs, meaning that our feelings are the fuel that powers our creative energies.

If we believe that healing the body is possible then we can direct our healing thoughts to the energy that is the physical body and the body will change according to our belief. If we believe that the diagnostic given to us is set in stone, then we will give in and believe that there is not much we can do. A fantastic book that I recommend whole-heartedly is Gregg Braden‘s “The Spontaneous Healing of Belief: Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits”. It is worth your time, especially if what you are reading right now is challenging your core beliefs.

If we believe that money is hard to make, the energy that creates the world around us will vibrate to match our belief and money will be hard to come across.

If we truly believe that we have the innate right to experience a wonderful, loving relationship, the world around us will start to shift and change and arrange in such way that the right person will be placed on our path. The belief that it is possible we’ll allow us to see and to feel our way towards the creation of that wonderful relationship with the person we attracted.

Do you see how much power we have? How magnificent our lives can be? How much joy and lightness we can experience in our day-to-day life and also share in our interactions with others?

Is it easier to picture this possibility? If not, taking a good hard look at your beliefs will bring some light into your creations. Sometimes we need help identifying what it is that our beliefs really are, so if you feel that you do, there are many resources to help you on your quest. Just set your intention to become aware of your beliefs and to understand what they are. Your thoughts and beliefs shape all your experiences. So, believe now that you can see where your creations have stemmed from and that if you don’t like them, then you can change your thoughts to change your experience.

Do you know the difference between a thought and a belief?

A belief is a thought repeated enough times and with enough conviction that it becomes a truth for your subconscious mind. From that moment on, you lead your life according to that specific truth as well as all other ideas that you hold to be true.

Here’s to new beliefs that will fuel your true desires!

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 41: Beyond Fear Part 9 – Lack of Trust in Life

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

The third universal fear that Gregg Braden talks about is the lack of trust in life. Most people believe that this world is not safe and that the processes of life are unsafe, scary and threatening.

This fear is expressed as the inability to surrender to our experiences and/or relationships. These relationships mirror our expectations of the world being unsafe and unworthy of our trust. We were taught to not trust ourselves, other people, other countries. As a result we lack trust in our own abilities, talents, knowledge and intuition; we lack trust in other people’s kindness, good intentions and gifts. We lack trust in life in general, in the day to day miracles of life.

Lack of trust and the fear stemming from it have such a strong grip on most people, that feeling happy or being successful become signs that something bad will happen. Have you ever heard someone say: “This is going too well now; I am sure it is doomed to fail”? Or have you tried to share a cherished dream with a friend only to hear all the reasons why it could not happen?

Or how about the saying: “Better safe than sorry”? Better stay in a secure job that you hate, in a relationship that is not what you desire, in a state of fear and low self-esteem rather than aspiring for more and living fully. Better stay where you are than risking getting hurt, or not succeeding.

The universal fears are very well embedded in our collective and individual consciousness. It is easy to overlook or rationalize them as something else, yet they are at the core of our fear based life. As you can see, it is no mystery now why we are afraid, why we live in fear, why it is such an accepted state in our society, in our families, among our friends and inside ourselves.

“You’re one with all of Life. The more you love yourself and trust Life, the more that Life will love you, support you, and guide you. You can trust in that which is invisible, instead of trusting only in the physical, material world. I’m not saying that we do nothing, yet if we have trust, we can go through life much easier. We need to trust that we’re being taken care of, even though we’re not physically in control of everything that’s happening around us.”

Louise Hay, “Let Go of Your Fears

Isn’t it LIBERATING to start understanding these fears and to have the knowledge that you can let go of all of them, simply because they hold no value? These fears are learned and practiced year after year after year and because of that we are more familiar with being afraid than with feeling free, fearless and trusting.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 40: Beyond Fear Part 8 – Fear of Not Being Worthy

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

In his book “The Divine Matrix”, Gregg Braden wrote:

The root of our ‘negative’ experiences may be reduced to one of three universal fears (or a combination of them): abandonment, low self-worth, or lack of trust.”

The second universal fear is the fear that we are not “good enough”.  Almost every person in our world has experienced low self-esteem at one point or another. Some people live their entire lives feeling unworthy of love, of a good career, of abundance, of respect, of friendship, of vibrant health or happiness. Our professional, friendship or romantic relationships will match our expectations of not being good enough. Worthlessness is a desperate feeling and it brings about the belief that we have nothing to offer to the world, that we are insignificant.

Several religions have taught us that we are imperfect, lesser beings who cannot begin to compare to the armies of saints and angels who are closer to God.

As a result, we express our beliefs through our expectations of our achievements, how much joy we allow ourselves, and the success of our relationships. Our fear of not being valuable enough to have love, acceptance, health, and longevity promises that every one of our relationships will reflect the fear of low worth. And it happens in ways that we would never expect in a million years.
“For example, how many times have you settled for relationships that aren’t what you really want but rationalize them by saying things such as: “This is good enough for now” or “This is a stepping-stone to something better”? Have you ever found yourself saying, “I’d love to share my life with a loving, compassionate, nurturing, and caring partner, but …” or “This isn’t the job where I can really express my gifts and talents, but …” followed by all the reasons why your greatest dreams can’t be realized in this moment?
“If these or similar scenarios have played out in your life, there’s a good chance that they are the skillfully created masks that you use to question your worth. Through your personal and business relationships, you remind yourself of your core beliefs about yourself, beliefs that ask for a greater healing.”

pages 156 – 158, The Divine Matrix, Gregg Braden

This is profound, don’t you think? How much of this do you recognize in yourself?

Thank you for following me on this journey of discovering the hidden roots of fear. We have a couple more categories to go through and then I will teach you what to do when you feel afraid. So, hang on for a couple more posts.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 39: Beyond Fear Part 7 – Fear of Abandonment

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

This next category of fears has been identified by the great visionary Gregg Braden. He says that these three Universal fears are at the base of all the fears and behaviors that are present within ourselves and others.

Universal fears:

  • Abandonment and Separation
  • Low Self-Worth
  • Lack of Trust

These three basic underlying fears are the roots of the sociological and perceptual fears. With few exceptions, our experiences of pain, suffering, illness, disease, and emotional trauma have their roots in these core universal fears.

In his book “The Divine Matrix”, Gregg Braden wrote:

The root of our ‘negative’ experiences may be reduced to one of three universal fears (or a combination of them): abandonment, low self-worth, or lack of trust.”

Let’s look at the fear of abandonment and separation first.

The fear of abandonment and separation stems from the ancient fear that we were abandoned by our creator without explanation or reason. Religions across the globe increase this feeling of separation, of abandonment as well as the belief that we need to repent and change if we are to be forgiven and loved by the creator again. Because of this long history of being left to fend for ourselves, while God/Creator judges from above, we feel alone in the world, in the Universe. We feel without support, without real caring and understanding; we are terrified.

This fear is expressed in our lives when we are devastated when our relationships fail, always being the one who gets “left” in the relationship, and/or being the first to leave a good relationship so that we are not hurt. The truth is that relationships do not fail; they CANNOT fail. They are taking their course as energy streams between people, they are the creations of people’s beliefs, fears and expectations.

If we fear abandonment we become clingy and needy or we go the other way and reject any meaningful connection with another.

What I want to tell you is that if you pay close attention to how you feel, you will know when the fear of abandonment is surfacing. Take a good look at the main relationships in your life: what do you feel? How do you perceive them? Do you allow others to be who they are or do you feel the need to know their every move and every thought? Do you wait for them to fulfill your needs? Are you afraid to open up and be who you are with your lover/partner?

What if you stopped being afraid of true sharing with another person? What if you stopped being afraid that you will be left by someone?

This is intense, I know. But by looking at all this aspects of how you engage others and life in general, by understanding where your choices come from and then make better choices for yourself, you will release fear and become free.

Until tomorrow, just sit with these thoughts, examine your closest relationships and see if you fear abandonment and separation.

Many hugs,

Rucsandra

 

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 26: The Inner Child – Part 2

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I am thrilled that I get to share with you all this information about the Inner Child. When I understood this concept, I was able to start a powerful process of transformation in my own life. I am grateful that I did and I want the same for you!

As I sat down to write this post, I realized that there will be more than two parts to the Inner Child topic. So more will come tomorrow.

In yesterday’s post I asked you to create your Inner Child image and to allow it to sit with you in silence. According to the tradition of Ho’oponopono, about which I wrote on Day 5, the Inner Child is actually the subconscious mind and it must be approached really gently and patiently.

I’ll write about the conscious and subconscious minds tomorrow. Right now, I want to bring to your attention the fact that nowadays science is backing-up the connection between what we feel and what we create in our lives on all levels: physical, emotional, spiritual, mental and energetic. This is no mystery anymore; it is not considered make-belief anymore in the medical and scientific circles. It is REALITY. It is the reality of the intricate, powerful and self-healing mechanism that the human being is.

Reading books by Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil or Gregg Braden will offer you the scientific proof regarding the fact that we create our lives through how we feel and what we think. Our emotions are a sounding board, a barometer for how aligned we are with our inner essence. Our true Essence is fearless, powerful, expanded, generous and magnificent. When we feel small, afraid and powerless it is because part of our connection with the true essence of who we are has been turned off. More so today, as our world is led by fear and shaken by major events, we may be feeling afraid, confused or alone. And because of this very phenomenon, we create more of what we are afraid of.

Louise Hay started saying almost 40 years ago:

“Every thought we think, and every word we speak, is creating our future. Our thoughts go out into the universe.”

The book “All is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations and Intuition” written by Louise Hay and Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz is based on Louise Hay’s decades of work. Dr. Schulz explains how science today is able to back-up what Louise Hay said all along. Here’s a quote from the book:

“Research has shown that fear, anger, sadness, love, and joy have specific effects on the body. We know that anger makes muscles clamp down and blood vessels constrict, leading to hypertension and resistance to blood flow. Cardiac medicine tells us that joy and love tend to have opposite effect.

……

Specific thought patterns affect our bodies in predictable ways, releasing certain chemicals in response to each emotion. When fear is your dominant mood over a long period of time, the constant release of stress hormones, specifically cortisol, triggers a domino effect of chemicals that lead to heart disease, weight gain, and depression.

As with fear, other emotions and thoughts follow a typical pattern as they are projected onto the body in the form of illness. In my work, I have also found that while emotions travel everywhere in the body, they affect organs differently depending on what is happening in your life. “

This is a lot of information and I will leave you with it until tomorrow.
