Life Might is dedicated to helping others align with the practicable magic within!
Self-help is self-empowerment through potent personal development tools and the order of the day in this age of enlightenment. And, as lifeology has taught us, the more potent the tools the faster one grows in emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual freedom.
The most important of these tools is our built-in emotional guidance system that works really well, but many don’t acknowledge it, let alone understand it enough to use it. Basically put, it is an internal feedback system from beliefs we have about ourselves both learned and inherent with many being not of our own making.
Your subconscious belief in yourself is what you bring to the world as projected through your self-image that is subsequently reflected back to you in your environment. So, when you believe you are born only to serve others you will forever be a doormat and miss out on your own true life path. Alternatively, when you are balanced in giving and receiving there is fulfillment in your life.
To make that change to your inner-verse, you need the proper tools, which is sometimes the most difficult part of the journey. Not to fear, many a truth-seeker have done the experiential research over many decades, including myself and I am sharing my actualities as both mentor and student here.
3-Step Action Plan for Personal Awareness
- Meditation: to calm the mind chatter and hear your inner voice
- Emotional Intelligence: to discern what emotional states you are in and what to change
- Open Mind: to use whatever tools your brain can utilize to assist you in raising your emotional vibe
Did You Know That You?
- Carry karmic patterning from your ancestors, as well as past life experiences?
- Start to unconsciously learn fears in your first seven years of life?
- Have your own answers to your life’s situations and challenges right inside of you?
- Are filled with your own life force that guides you on your own unique path?
These facts are consistently showing up throughout every healing modality and resound on the lips of every intuitive healer and light worker around the world. The universal problem is that we were all raised with limited personal growth in one way or another. Plus, the expectations of society can make any forward-thinker feel like an outcast in their workplace or family.
There are only two basic emotions…love & fear…and fear is an illusion.
Climbing the Emotional Scale
When referring to the emotional scale we can simplify things with the popular Hawkins Scale that shows the degrees in emotional extremes of Love and Fear and the respective vibration they resonate from the body. We also see this emotional patterning in other books like those of Abraham Hicks, and Christie Marie Sheldon made this scale very popular in her Love or Above program.
The Hawkins Scale, et al, place Shame at the lowest level of Fear with a vibration of 20 and Enlightenment at the highest level of Love with a vibration of 700+ and the ideal vibration for well-being is 500. You can find more in-depth research about Emotions, Feeling and more on the Emotional Intelligence page to get clarity on where you might be in your current emotional state.
Once you have clarity about where you are, the next step is to take control of the emotion and raise yourself up a notch or two using whichever method works to shift your thinking into happier thoughts – and the emotions will follow. And, by ‘happier’ thoughts, I don’t mean to reminisce about the good old days or past tender kisses that you will suddenly start missing again – grab a thought that maintains you in a happy state. A different, but very powerful method is Elma Mayer’s One-Minute Gratitude Activation technique using the Flower of Life with the NOW commands.
Finding Your Ideal Tools
The internet has more than enough self-help and improvement knowledge if one so chooses to look, but the downside is that too much information overload makes for a daunting soul search if you don’t know where to begin. This is why meditation for relaxation is a must, as it will help you to be open to the thoughts formed in peace rather than those formed in a state of despair.
The easiest way to meditate is to simply close your eyes and focus on your breathing for a few minutes – that’s all.
When you find your own sense of guidance from a state of calm, it will lead you to your own right answers. It is your higher self showing up as your best friend when searching for your own truths and perhaps you are already aware of it. Internal guidance will also develop over time, so clearing old negative energy is a priority. The challenge is learning to trust those gut instincts and epiphanies, because they are messages for you alone.
It is important to keep a very open mind to your own sense of guidance, because you are learning its language of straight-forward simplicity to lead you on the most direct path, as it has no judgments or prejudices to fuss about that your ego might. Use guided meditations and/or hypnotherapy until you learn to meditate at will, and meditation is really only creating that peaceful state of connection to Source/Universe/Higher Self inside.
From a state of peace you will quickly sense when things trouble you that you can change your mind about or dismiss from your thoughts. And, you will want to be aware if you have fear around success because that fear alone can sabotage your desired result. You may be a total money magnet or love bug, but a vise-gripping fear of success in those areas will block that ultimate realization.
Change Takes Place First In The Brain
After you become aware of obstacles through your intuition or your Emotional Guidance System, your conscious mind is going to assist you with self-awareness from the logical side with its ability to observe and analyze the components involved and then devise the plan with the best tools for wellness. With new information comes new mental programming, which requires subtle shifts in consciousness away from the old way of thinking. Sometimes these mental shifts cause slight confusion, but all becomes clear once the brain processes the new concepts.
Self-realization is a personal matter, no one can do it for another and although there are similarities, the experience is totally unique. It’s our personal connection to the Earth and the Cosmos that strengthens the fabric of life in and around us. If change needs to happen, it comes from within and our only part is to find the way that works for us.
The Freedom Of Personal Authenticity
The ultimate personal freedom is liberty from false beliefs about ourselves that we ‘learned’ and can be ‘unlearned’. With self-discovery comes revelations in many forms when the conscious mind has its AHA moments of clarity. The need to embark on this path also comes from within in many ways, as we learn to read the signs and triggers of truths and lies.
All knowledge resonates like plucked strings on the violin of our subconscious and it’s those tones that cause us to make choices in our life. To elaborate, living with truth makes us feel naturally balanced and living with lies feels awkwardly unbalanced. When it comes to living with lies we may subconsciously avoid them by escaping into overindulgence or hermitage.
Perhaps now is the time to take a good honest LOOK at your life for the signs of happiness?
- There is true happiness that comes from genuine thoughts connected to an open/expanded heart.
- There is also pseudo-happiness that many conform to from distorted thoughts connected to a closed/constricted heart.
Use this very old trick to knowing if you are living your truth about a certain thing:
Your thought and your heart are aligned in happiness.
