No wonder we become distracted, redirected and forgetful about being in touch with our higher consciousness level selves.
We can’t even call them on the cell phone, never mind ask them to relate to what we go through.
Getting into a higher level state requires detaching from our physical selves. It is like ignoring the squeakiest wheel. ….and as we know, the squeaky wheel gets the attention.
We can have wonderful intentions of growing towards a higher consciousness level and then we develop some new pain or disorder…whether mental or physical.
We are subjected to all manner of mind control and persuasion techniques by society and the manipulators within it. And our bodies take more and more of a beating as we age.
Beating yourself up over not being able to do certain things is unproductive. It might be that you don’t do certain things well, because those are not the things you were meant to be doing. If you were meant to be doing something, you would feel passionate about it.
It is effectually beating up yourself with the ideas that someone else put into you. The thoughts you have about not being good enough are programs that were hacked into your brain by others.
As far as your body goes…it is always trying to help you. Your body wants to protect you, as well as itself. It is the house for the soul and the mind. Your body works hard all the time to repair itself, but it needs your help to do the right things to care for it.
The idea that some people might give you that your body is working against you, is not true. And this very thought will cause a battle between the mind and the body. This will cause disease and sickness.
Repressing your feelings about things will cause a physical response, because those feelings want to be paid attention to. You may have been conditioned that you have to shut down your feelings.
You may have been taught that it is weak to express your feelings. At the same time, you know that repressing feelings will cause your body to weaken.
So we have to accept the inner child in order to heal…accept suffering as part of existing in the physical realm….sit with our pain to comfort it to ease it….
walk through painful experiences to get to the light on the other side…
…believe in your own resilience to be able to experience your feelings and care for them…
…and detach from the ego and identifying with our identity in order to achieve a higher consciousness…..
Yet in detaching from our ego we are acknowledging our identity with it…..so we first have to recognize the ego as a construct that is heavily influenced by brainwashing, false beliefs programmed into us, and manipulative people with their own agendas to serve..
We then can understand that many of our automatic thoughts and attachments come out of this programming. …making the majority of the tapes running in our subconscious mind basically bad viruses…..and our conscious negative thoughts results of the viruses…..
Then we can begin to understand that We Are Not Our Thoughts….
Once we begin to accept that we are not our thoughts, we can open the subconcious mind to new formatting….better programming….we can alter and add new beliefs…and delete contaminated beliefs…..
A new understanding begins to arise at the back of our brains where those core beliefs are housed….that if our thoughts are not us, then we can observe our thoughts and evaluate their validity….
Holding onto beliefs that no longer serve us is not necessary. In fact it is important to rid yourself of false beliefs that you are holding in your subconscious.
You need to evaluate what beliefs are driving your emotions. Then see which ones are actually your own, and which ones were programmed into you.
It is the attachment to those addictive beliefs and thought patterns that keeps us controlled by others….and keeps us in learned helplessness….
We are not the sum of our thoughts.
If you think of your thoughts as furniture occupying your brain, you can see how you have the power to arrange it however you wish.
Rearrange that furniture. Throw out old pieces that are no longer needed. Add some select new pieces that support you better. You can even re-frame some memories that are keeping you trapped in the picture that you imagine you are trapped in.
The house remains, even when the things inside are altered. Your higher self can guide you to know what thoughts fit you, and what ones are destructive.
So who is doing the altering and rearranging? It is not our physical selves….It is not our thoughts that are observing themselves….
Once we begin to realize this, then we catch a glimpse of what is doing the observing….It is not within the brain or the physical body….
It is that higher self…the higher consciousness….that can be awakened to observe and repair the subconscious …where suffering is at its roots….
Thoughts about suffering seem to create more suffering…and fear that the suffering will get worse….or continue to last is the root of the most painful mental and physical suffering.
Yet somehow you are beginning to suspect the most curious thing of all….that by entering this kind of trance….that very trance you have allowed your mind to enter while reading this….you were able to detach from your physical suffering for a few minutes…..
And so we took the journey together….just you and I….in a higher realm of consciousness….
