Being able to think and analyze is what we believe make us superior to other beings. Not that we don`t believe that other species think, but we do it so much better. We resonate, analyze and contemplate. We keep pondering, using the mind as if it was who we were, and our most valuable asset.
On the contrary, when thoughts are present, a true connection cannot flow. Thoughts interfere with being in the now moment, and only by stilling the mind can we listen to our divine truth, our innate wisdom. We are thinkers, and even though the ability to think is a great tool, it is also a constant creator of stress, noise, and worry. The mind has a tendency to keep going, chattering away. Have you ever noticed how you keep pondering the same thoughts over and over again?
We spend our days lost in unconscious and unproductive thinking – addictively replaying the same mental patterns, the same old stories, over and over in our heads like a broken record player. The Buddhist expression Monkey-mind refers to the incessant chatter that goes on in our heads.
Like a restless monkey, always moving around, the mind is always busy, producing up to 100,000 thoughts per day. It is estimated that our brains are bombarded with seven times as many stimuli as our grandparents experienced. Add to this the rising stress levels caused by increased working hours and longer traffic jams, and it is a wonder that many people can cope at all. Everything we look at, experience, and hear and feel the vibration off, is something our brain wants to process. We take with us the past and invite in the future in this constant soup of mind-food. The thing is; everything we think, our mind-chatter, is holding us locked in where we are. Thinking mostly the same thoughts or thought patterns every single day, like an old broken record.
This is why change is so hard – it is something to think, rather than to do. It all starts with the mind. We need to reset and reshape our way of thinking, to be able to do things differently.
To be able to do differently actually means to be able to think differently.
I want to let you in on something that I have found quite interesting. To quiet the mind even though meditation and yoga are fantastic. These are ancient methods of clearing the head, moving from the head/thought to the heart. What I was not prepared for, was the fact that the more I detoxified my physical body, the clearer and calmer the mind got. The more raw-living fruits and vegetables that I ate, the more aware and clear-minded I got. The connection became very obvious to me. Detoxification is an all-inclusive experience.
By simply releasing every weak and sick cell from the body, from letting go of built-up waste, calcification, parasites, fungus and other toxins, we are raising our vibration. Tuning in to our innate wisdom, clearing the shit, and most of all allowing change. The key word here is change. We will be able to reprogram that old chattering monkey on the top floor.
It will be will be inevitable. New thought forms will arise. New energy will lead the way.
Even that which we call old programming, what we have been told over and over until we believe it, is nothing but a reflection of a pattern. It always starts with a thought. A conscious thought was always there first, together with a feeling. They formed a belief that was confirmed over and over again until it stuck. Believe me, getting something to stick in a child`s mind is easy. As children, we are like sponges, and we are constantly seeking to learn and to find our safe and loving place. We look towards authority for guidance, and as we learn to be followers and not different or special, we keep looking for new authorities throughout our whole lives. It’s like we lost our bus and ended up on the route to helpless and overwhelmed – joined the school of followers, signed up for life.
As adults, we like to believe that we are our own authority, when in fact we are not. We, in the Western world, the freedom fighters and know-it-all intellectuals, are following many – from governments to doctors, completely leaving our sovereign state. We have been programmed to believe that we need constant guidance when it comes to our health, our financial affairs, our education, and our ability to choose in general. From vaccination programs to drugs, from chemicals in the water to genetically modified food. Toxins are everywhere, and they have a great influence on our ability to think and to stay with a clear mind. The inseparable mind-body-connection at its best.
Everything from ingesting non-foods and breathing polluted air, to being injected and medicated while being fed fear-based information, will acidify us. Now leaving us with a calcified pineal gland. The little gland in our brain, our third eye, connecting us with the higher realms. That one, the gland that is a part of our very own internal government, the authority which always has our best interest at heart, always. Only someone with a calcified pineal gland will automatically be a follower. It is natural for us to be wondering and curious. Look at how children keep exploring new things.
Trying and failing. We lost that eagerness and boldness through toxicity and mind-games.
For the purpose of healing and restoration of health, we need to look at what is holding us locked in this position. This is personal, and we need to take it as such. Luckily the old programming is very easy to spot. If you are the one not loving to be with you, not speaking highly of your own wonderful being, you are not programmed to love yourself, period. Let me tell you, when we find ourselves in ill-health, self-love is absent.
“When you want something to change, change something”, is an old but good statement. It is obvious, and it makes sense. “Health is a choice”, is another one. This statement might not ring as true right away, but it is. The two simple statements, hold the key to your healing and transformation, though they might stir up some negative emotions at first.
If health really is a choice, am I saying that people are choosing to be sick? No, of course not, and yet, yes in a sense they are. We, you, me, we are on a non-conscious level choosing to live what we are living. Right at this moment, our life and our bodies are simply responding to our inner terrain and programming. Conscious or subconscious, it doesn`t matter, a belief is a belief. As long as we are thinking what we have been thinking, we will keep experiencing the same old thing.
As long as we keep eating what we have been eating, feeling what we have been feeling, we are simply validating our thought-form. This will manifest in many different ways. Yes, we see it in the life we are living. We live what we believe we can, must, are capable of and so forth, but we also live the life that we fear and love. Our lives reflect what we talk about the most, who we choose to be with, and how willing we are to change. The old programming is not going to give in easily, as it took time for it to be created. It might trick you into believing that it`s right, true and real, but it’s not. A healthy and abundant inner talk and mindset is not often seen in a person with a sick physical body.
Choosing to live, to thrive and be healthy, means choosing your thoughts. It means letting go of everything that`s not serving you, absolutely everything that is not serving you. And why wouldn`t you? Well, the fear of change again, and the old programming`s tight grip. The change would be easy, and the path would be obvious, was it not for this very thing. The road would be clear as day, as it is natural to do what is best for the body, and it is natural to say no to toxins and needless drugs. It is absolutely healthy and sound to change what is not serving you. Only old programming will stand in the way.
That is obvious, you might say, yet still hard to do. My point exactly! As long as you can see clearly what you need to do, yet find it difficult to follow through, you are not of sound mind, so to speak. You are not of a detached, free, and self-loving mindset.
When I talk about the mind game, I am referring to the stimuli and non-truths that we are constantly bombarded with. Our minds are fed and nurtured through our education, the media, our parents, and our bosses. Authorities are feeding us what is serving the cause you might say, as there is always an agenda. To be a free-thinker, a self-serving and authentic human being, takes courage and strength. To free ourselves from the belief systems that we have embraced and adapted takes time and persistence. Luckily, through cleansing and rejuvenation, bull-shit does not stand a chance, only truth does.
The truth shall set you free, but first, it will piss you off.
Our thoughts need to be of a constructive nature, meaning positive for our health and life in general. We want our thoughts to reflect and draw forth the feeling-good emotions, which in turn will be healing to our cells. For a thought to have any impact on our cells, it has to be associated with- or connected to a feeling. The feeling is what has the vibration, and the vibration is what connects with everything that vibrates, which means absolutely everything there is. This means that what we feel is the most important thing of all when it comes to programming our cells. The feeling is the language you might say.
The feeling is what speaks the language which the cell will understand and respond to.
Feeling good is something we usually associate with certain outside events, externally created events. Trapped again. Blaming the outside, forgetting our choices. Feelings are not us, and we can choose, through practice and letting go, how we want to feel. Feeling good is a choice, and our life is created one thought, one belief, one feeling, and one bite of food at a time.
The mindset of a healthy you is the mindset of a winner, and by taking control of your mind and emotions, you become unstoppable. When you know that you are in charge of your thinking, you are on your way, and as one thought changes, the rest will follow. Time is on your side, as the journey is the real destination.
How do you know what you have been programmed to believe?
This is very easy to answer: The old programming will show up as your need to speak about the disease, the broken relationship, or the terrible job and boss. Every time you feel the urge to tell a story of something that you would rather change, you know that you are in the mind-game-mode. As long as you keep telling that same old story of what you do not want, you are heading down that same old road. When we have the need to talk about what is not serving us, we know that we need to change. What we resist, persists, and what we talk about the most, we will keep creating more of.
Now, there is a very big difference between letting someone know how things are, and to keep indulging in sickness and tragedy. Even though something appears as a truth, does not mean we need to keep telling it. If you don`t like your story, tell a different one. “Yes, but…”, you might say, but there are no but`s. If you keep telling the same old story, that is what you will be seeing more of. The broken record will keep on playing for as long as it is not stopped and replaced.
How do you break free from your less than healing mindset?
- First of all, you must realize that the old programming is there. It is important to acknowledge the way that you have been thinking. The thinking might not be obvious, but your life is. So, look at your life and see what you are living that is not what you would like it to be.
- Realize that the past is the past, and now is now. What has been has been, and now is when change can happen.
- Know that you, and only you, are the one in charge of your thoughts and feelings. This is a must. You really need to know you are the head of operations.
- Be your biggest fan, and do not be shy. Once you realize how amazing you really are, you will wonder what you have been thinking. Bond up with you, your new best friend!
- Know that you are not a victim, and never were. You are a co-creator and a master of your life, so feel, think and live like one.
- Get ready for the ride of your life. The rollercoaster ride will be a trip, so be prepared. Prepare your mind and your environment. Make up your mind, pure and simple. Simply decide to do what you need to do and go do it. Once you have made up your mind, there is no looking back. There is no trying or maybe`s, there is only moving in one direction, forward.
- Get to know Mr. Trust and Mrs. Faith. If you have any doubts that you can do this, that your body can heal, thrive and regenerate, keep reading until you don`t. Trust and faith are great friends and followers until you know by experience. From then on, everything changes.
- Do not worry about what other people might say. They are all conditioned by their own programming and beliefs. Most of the time they only want what they think is best for you, although they might not know what that is. You do not need approval from anyone. This is about you, and your life.
- Be committed to the plan. Once you have made a protocol, either by yourself, or together with your practitioner, stay with it. Your health is worth it. You are worth it. There is no reason that is good enough for you to not succeed, not a single one.
- Be fearless of change and welcome it like an old friend. Fear of danger is different and must not be confused by the fear we are conditioned to have towards anything out of the norm or so called “accepted” conduct. Stepping outside the box, most often, will be challenging for people around us. Lose the whole concept of there even being a box. Act like the free and sovereign being that you are.
- Be unstoppable in your quest for health. Let nothing stop you from getting to where you want to go. If you fall, get back up.
Everyone has their own path, their own journey, and the one that does not believe it can be done should never interrupt the person doing it.
There is nothing out there to wait for, and the best time to take the first step is always now. You are the one you have been waiting for, and no matter what you have experienced up to this point in time, the full responsibility is now on you. Only you can change the outcome of your future. How amazingly great is that? From feeling that life happened to you, that you were somehow a victim, you can now know that you are the one with the truly wonderful power to change everything.
Realizing you have that ability can either make you or break you. The fact that you are partly responsible for the state of your health, does not make you at fault, as this was never a conscious choice. There is never blame involved, only the realization of the solution. Being responsible does not mean that you did something wrong, it only means that you are in fact on top of the game.
Health and healing are always about the solution, always. Do not look back unless you are going in that direction. Even so, we might want to go back at times, to understand how we got to where we are at. But this is only to reveal a valuable lesson or insight on how to move forward. Every single experience has a valuable lesson to teach us, so in term, everything is always as it should be.
We are here, right now, to learn and to move on. Every person we ever meet is our teacher, even though it might not feel like it at the time.
Start by conditioning your whole being for success. Talk, think and feel like the winner that you are. Your cells are listening to absolutely everything. To every thought and emotion. You have an audience, and it is what`s called your life.
When you think about your health, think about being healthy.
When you talk about your health, be positive and enthusiastic.
When you walk through your day, think less in general.
As yo ur old programming loosens and a new healthy mindset replaces it, what you are sending out will also be changing. This might result in some change in friends and associates, but that is ok. When friends leave, you know you are moving ahead. You will naturally be drawn towards those that have the same creative, positive, solution-based, loving mindset as yourself. New like-minded friends will eventually knock on your door, so don`t worry, and only those that were not in support for you will leave. A true detoxification on all levels. The all-inclusive premium package.
The process of healing will include every single part of your life. You cannot heal the physical body without healing the emotional one. It is all connected, and therefore you can start with a few single steps, and the rest will follow easily and effortlessly.
You can change your diet, and your emotional body will start its detoxification process as well.
You can start your meditation practices, your deep breathing and your letting-go routine, and you will start loving yourself more and more.
This will soon lead to taking better care of yourself by choosing food that nurtures. As your physical body is healing, your mind is getting clearer, your emotions are balancing out, and your relationships are changing for the better.
Do not worry, nothing is under control. It is all aligning just as it should, and out of chaos comes order.
As long as you let go of the need to control the outcome, life will be created to look and feel like magic. Do your very best, and order health from the menu of the Universe. Try not to give a dang about what that looks like and let Mr. Trust take care of the rest. You do your part, the Creation will do it`s, you can count on it.
Your ride, your journey.
It will be what you let it, and you are never alone.
Let go and let live, and give the old programming of lack and suffering a kick in the butt. No more attention to old-fashioned belief-systems, and no more engaging in fear-based information and behaviors. No more buying into not being great and amazing, and no more chasing validation from others. You are in charge, and your mind is under your control.
Stepping out of the mind-game, letting stillness shine through, listening to your own inner voice will lead you to magic in every moment. By realizing you are powerful beyond belief, you are re-creating every little part of your life. The enthusiasm and willingness to do good, will light up your path towards more of what life has to offer.
