Taking any action moves us out of the victimhood house.

If you suffer from a mental disorder, PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, etc., action is mandated.

How would you describe your situation, if you are not taking any daily action to heal?

That would signal defeat for me, I had quit. I had given up!

Wow, no way I am joining that team.

I rather be dead than live a victims life.

I believe in “Never give in, Never give up” a 1000%.

It is a choice.

If you are not trying, do you expect healing to happen on its own?

Do you think a therapist is going to heal you?

Do you avoid holding yourself responsible.

Victims take no responsibility or daily action to heal.

Healing is a choice to take daily action or surrender.

Healing takes strength and effort

Excerpt from the The Way Within:

It takes strength to stay present and then act as the moment requires not as your thoughts and feelings dictate.”

.

.

.

My two cents: It also takes dedicated daily practice.

Only twenty focused minutes of practice delivers enormous wellbeing.

We find how to release that torrential rain of negative, unworthy thoughts.

Imagine only entertaining positive, worthy, happy thoughts.

Would that change your moment to moment experience?

Meditation costs nothing, like kindness it is free.

Available at any second, but how often do we decide not to be kind or entertain self hate.

Healing and Happiness are the benefits of a daily meditation/mindfulness practice.

If life brings no challenges then I would relax and enjoy it.

If not, ask yourself, what will it take for me to start a daily practice?

What holds me back?

Be Yourself: The Inner Way; part two

.

Excerpt from the The Way Within:

This way is not a means to an end, yet it is an end to all seeking. It’s about knowing yourself not just through awareness but as awareness.

It’s the call to being. It’s making a stand as awareness and living authentically.

Awakening to your true nature is not an end to your spiritual work partly because awakening operates at the level of ‘knowing’.

Knowing is not the end because before we come to knowing, a life time of other beliefs has been recorded at a deep, some might say cellular level and it takes time before you are free of your legacy beliefs and all the associated fear and pain.

You must work through your beliefs, but this is easier work when done in the light of awareness.

The inner way brings you to openness and acceptance of what ‘is’ but it is not be confused with weakness.

It takes strength to stay present and then act as the moment requires not as your thoughts and feelings dictate.

Be Yourself: The Inner Way; part 1, ☝️

Excerpt from the The Way Within:

The second way is about the now and living in that moment. This way is invigorating and satisfying, and it is the source of all bliss and lasting happiness.

The inner way assumes abundance, it never clings because it is forever giving. The truth that we are pointing towards is the always so, it’s the abundance that is to be found at our center.

To know yourself as this spacious capacity is to have room for everything, and to rely on yourself is to rely on the only power that is real.

You just need to see your truth and live it. The inner way is unifying. It is born of the enlightening realization that you are not what you thought you were.

Once you have grasped your true nature the notion of a separate self and the concept of ‘me’ falls away and with it the struggle, pain and fear that have shaped so much of your life are dropped to be replaced by peace, happiness and awareness.

Healing and Happiness are an internal journey,

Healing and Happiness are an internal journey, an exploration of our inner world.

Thoughts, judgments and emotions are let go, as we feel all of our body sensations.

Somatic wisdom helps us integrate our trauma, if we have the courage to face it.

Thoughts are endless, so is the suffering that accompanies them

Directed thought is fine, negative thought, unworthy ideas, and self hate are not.

Find peace inside yourself and the world will be much easier to navigate.

It is simple: Never entertain a negative thought or idea, ever!

This simple, immediate, concrete and repetive action changes Our perspective.

Stop reading, talking, thinking, and debating, action is needed at some point.

Why not NOW!!!!!!!!!

If you really want to heal, you will take daily action.

This is a harsh reality that keeps over 90% of PTSD sufferers from healing.

Add Emotion and Visualize your Affirmation

.

.

“First, you need to do more than say the words.

Remember I mentioned that the subconscious learns the most from emotion?

That’s why you need to feel the words.

Imagine how you would feel if the affirmation were absolutely true in your present reality.

Allow yourself to physically feel this emotion.

When it comes to manifesting something into the physical world using affirmations, it helps to close your eyes and visualize with strong images.

In fact, any sensory input you can garner will help–smells, tastes, sounds and textures.

In doing so, you activate the parts of the brain that experience that reality.

The connections made in the brain when you have that experience become strengthened. .

Your brain is literally making it a habit to have that experience.

The deeper and longer you feel, the greater and faster your results.”

.

.

My two cents: In this moment, right now, I accept and approve of myself.

 

I surround myself with a soothing wall of kindness.

 

I celebrate my ability to live fully, taking risk, enjoying life.

Building Awareness, knowing our flaws

When strong emotion springs forth, especially anger, either our “Ego” is upset or someone has threatened one of our attachments.

I did not realize the depth of my attachment to my mindfulness group and this blog. Strong emotional reactions informed me of them.

If it involves our “Ego” or an attachment, expect a serious reaction.

I take things to personally, it is a flaw of mine.

Yes, I have wasted my time, energy and given power away indiscriminately.

Realize some behavior of others, triggers trauma from our childhood.

My reaction can be out of proportion because I perceive a sort of lethal threat to my “Ego”.

My “Ego” behaves with childish emotions at the slightest indiscretion.

Are you aware of your created “Egos” influnce on everyday life.

When we feel a strong emotion, take a breath, a step back, explore the source of your anger, unworthiness, resentment, jealousy, worry or doubt.

Meditation builds focus, exposes our “Ego”, allows us to live free in the present moment.
