Alphabet soup for the soul – “A”

A is for Abundance

Abundance is not something we acquire, it is something we tune in to.” 

Wayne Dyer

    God, Source, The Universe, The Feild. Whatever you call the higher power that created us and allows blood to travel substantial distances freely through our veins is providing abundance everywhere, all the time. 

This same infinite intelligence keeps us breathing while we are fast asleep, resting and repairing, regenerating and rejuvenating so every day we function at an optimal level.

The same higher intelligence also provides fruits and vegetables to nurture the body. By harnessing the sun’s power plus water as it falls from the sky, all the food needed for survival grows on trees, bushes or directly out of the ground.

The amount of food produced each year is enough to feed the whole world multiple times and it all stems from the tiniest volume of seeds which grow into full abundance right in front of our eyes.

Made purposefully by God and given for us. The amount of abundance is greater than one can attempt to fathom.

One day while making dinner, I cut open a pepper and there were at least one hundred seeds inside one red pepper.

If even half turned into peppers after planting then I would end up with fifty new peppers, each with a hundred more seeds which is the same as five thousand more seeds.

After just a couple of years, you would have half a million followed by a number like 50,000,000 and on and on forever expanding.

All of that abundance comes from one seed planted with love and cared for over a much shorter time frame than one might assume. This idea works in an endless possibility of ways and means. Some are noted in this article I wrote a little while back. The brain is another great example.

Just look at how many neurons are in the human brain. As of the last count, there were 86 billion neurons inside a human brain. Is that how many drops of water are in all the oceans? How about the number of grains of sand? Is it possible that there are 86 billion stars in the universe?

Finally, abundance can be shown through the neuron example via human evolution in learning. If scientists one hundred years ago claimed there were only 14 billion neurons in the brain and today they are saying 86 billion, then how many neurological circuits will the human brain have 100 years from now.

It matters not that we didn’t have the ‘proper’ tools 100 years ago. What matters is the abundance was already there, we just couldn’t see it.

Cloud Cover

  The article below can be for readers of this blog but more so their friends or family members that are struggling. There is already magic in this article because the two people I shared it with both told me it helped them in unimaginable ways that indeed I can imagine. If it helped them, maybe it can help you or someone you know.

   There are times when we can get into unfavourable states of mind (thinking) and body (feeling) where things seem as though there is no hope and life seems pointless and unimportant, those are just the clouds.

 When it feels as if things will never get better those are just the clouds.

It may get worse than it is right now, it likely will, but those are just the clouds.

We only feel that way because we are stuck in a certain mental state or mind pattern (most likely an unconscious repetitive loop. ) 

Our thoughts are telling us lies and we just believe them without questioning them. Those are just the clouds.

When we begin to question our thoughts we will see that most are not even true and if we dig deep enough, underneath every thought there is an inherited belief or program that is directing all of our patterns. Those are also just the clouds.

You, however, are the sunshine behind the clouds and that means you are always bright and always there even though there are times when it feels dark and cloudy.

All you need to do is just wait out the storm and things will be better. You know this already because you’ve seen it in your past.

Every time there is a storm, every single time, the sun always comes out after, sometimes it is even accompanied by a beautiful rainbow.

So why do the clouds feel so heavy and dark?  Because those thoughts are clouding the sunshine, but if you just get back up or hang on and don’t let go because you know that you are the sun and not the clouds, then eventually the clouds will disappear. 

It will always get better and one day you will realize that the things you think are bad and horrible in the moment, are actually the things you need to turn into the person the universe intended for you to be.

When we are stuck in these thought patterns it is easy to not fight back, but you must fight back because your mind is tricking you. Those thoughts are just the clouds drifting by.

Things always get better because you are the Sun and those, well , those are just the clouds.

Becoming Limitless

I’ve heard people say that limiting beliefs are invisible and that you can not see them.

What if the reason we can’t see them and thus what is holding us back is that we have never actually looked.

What if then, we do look for them?

It first starts by asking why we think the things we do. The simple question of why allows us to begin the process of exploring ourselves by taking a deep dive to find out the root cause.

When we ask the question of why we do the things we do, then the answers will surely come. Our brain starts to uncover the reasons and the fabrications of the mind that were placed there by others in our past and they will start to dissolve.

If we look close than we will find out what our limiting beliefs are.

From this new vantage of knowing, we can begin to re-frame the story that we have made up in order to reshape our destiny. We replace it with a  more positive and predictable story that will serve us now and into the future.

By seeking out the limiting beliefs that we have been carrying inside us unknowingly for our entire lives, we can replace them with new beliefs. New beliefs that align with our highest purpose and our dreams. 

The First step is to look at the areas of your life that are not where you would like them to be. for this, you must do an honest analysis.

The next step is to question your beliefs. Why do I believe this? How long have I believed this?

You may find out those are beliefs that you had 20 years ago and they no longer serve you.

We must ask ourselves where do these beliefs come from?

Limiting beliefs can numb our entire world and the saddest part is we don’t even realize it. We can get stuck in unconscious cycles for decades and not even be aware that we are running someone else’s programs.

Once we see that our limiting beliefs are just a made-up story that we have been playing on repeat then we can change them and make up new beliefs. A new story that’s more compelling towards our own happiness and self-worth.

The point I am trying to make is that if we are living a life based on a belief system that we made up based on what we learned from schools, parents, media, religious leaders and society at large then it is up to us to disrupt the pattern.

What better way to do so than to make up new beliefs where we are the hero of the story and we do what we want with the one life we have on this planet. Where we are choosing to do things consciously, instead of running that playback loop that we all do subconsciously.

So start right now. Ask Why and when making up new beliefs don’t just shoot for the moon, shoot beyond the moon.

Steps to awakening series , step 12 of 12

12. Overwhelming breaths of compassion that release tears (or almost do) as they force their way to the surface

This step produces deep wells of emotion that bubble up from inside and explode right out of the throat center. These are mental or physiological imprints from our past. These formations,  also called samskaras are stored inside us and are forcing their way to the surface for immediate release.

This step made me feel very weak and scared until I learned what it was. From the time we are born we start recording everything we see in our environment. This is how we make sense of the world around us. The stronger the emotional attachment to the perceived past event (whether it’s good or bad)  the more likely it is to leave a lasting impression. 

In particular, childhood trauma is like taking an x-ray. As the image gets snapped, our body contracts and an imprint is recorded and stays inside until it comes to the surface. We either release it or choke it back down, burying it deep inside, in which case the trauma is literally still going to be a part of us. That is why it is so important to release them right away.

Especially when we start to wake up there will be many of these deep breaths of overwhelming compassion that rise to the surface.

These are the imprints trying to escape and it is very important to allow them to escape even if it means we start crying for what appears to be no reason. A song lyric or a conversation we overhear will suddenly trigger a rush of energy that rises from the solar plexus and moves from that lower energy center up through the heart and right into the throat where we release and shed past trauma by letting go of the samskara.

This is the only way to move beyond them. If we keep them inside and bury them then they will always try to escape until we stop resisting.

Steps to awakening series, step 11 of 12

Step 11- You consciously surrender to the present moment

 This is what we should be doing anytime we are frustrated or find ourselves getting mad, upset, angry or even depressed at our current situation. When any of these uncomfortable negative feelings happen, we must stop as soon as we become aware and ask the simple question. “Am I surrendering to the present moment?”. We will find that the answer is always a very loud no.  Often, we try and control situations that are out of our control and that is when we see these feelings arise.

If instead, we surrender to the present, we realize that in that exact precise moment there is nothing wrong and that everything is perfect. This idea was best described by a British playwright when he said. “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so”. That is a quote from Hamlet by William Shakespeare, and it is accurate.

Things are simply things. It is the meaning we attach to them that makes them either good or bad. A fair example of this is stealing a loaf of bread. Some may think this is wrong however if you stole a loaf of bread to feed your children who may otherwise perish due to starvation, would it still be wrong? You could then say that it would be wrong if you did NOT steal the bread, for in not doing so you have allowed a child to die.

Step 10 – You embrace your future while letting go of your past

One of the main points that we have been discussing throughout this series is that when you wake up then change occurs naturally.

Therefore, we begin to embrace a new future that is different than the path we were once on. Sometimes this means letting go of certain things we use to do or places we use to go along with letting go of unmet expectations we had for ourselves from 20 or 30 years ago, in a different lifetime.

When we move from being a victim to being a creator it can be lonely at first. One thing we realize is that we are very different than even we thought we were and if we were asleep then most likely those around us are still asleep. This can be difficult however we quickly learn how to connect with others that are experiencing the same things we are.

As we learned in the previous step there is no time for the same old story and because we are too busy creating it means the past slowly dissolves itself. This is not something to fear but rather something to be truly excited about.

The strength and courage that come with this new reality will carry us forward and allow life to happen for us instead of to us.

Since the original creator made everything perfect it is safe to say that we will find the people we are meant to find when the time is right. We also start to notice that certain people show up at certain times so we can help them and in turn, they can help us move forward confidently in the correct and necessary direction towards the higher self. By embracing our future, we begin to see new opportunities and believe in ourselves more. we now know that we can literally make it up the way we want to.

Step 9 -You can turn down the outer noise which allows you to silence the inner critic

This quite simply means that in the nicest possible way that we care not for what anyone else does and conversely, we also care not what anyone thinks about what we do. There is no time for such things. When we are creating our future and living as fully as possible in the present moment then we are too busy being or becoming to pay attention to what ‘they’ think or focus on what ‘they’ are doing.

If we are always helping each other become greater than we once were and thus continuously evolving to previously unseen levels of consciousness and understanding then there is no space for the negative, misleading and, untrue vibrations that try to force their way through the egoic mind anyway possible.

It means that with a moment’s notice we can very quickly regulate our body and mind via our spirit and soul. We can switch off everything and empty our heads of all thought actions. It means that we are being fully present inside and outside our bodies. It means you shut out the noise and get really quiet and it means quite beautifully that there is only room to receive the answers to the questions we have been asking.

Once we learn how to quiet our minds from the constant chatter of the inner critic that consumes the masses and is a huge part of the negative thought spiral that seems to be a most human condition, then our world looks and feels very different.

What was a fairy tale or dream becomes a reality and the new story is born. A greater story than was ever possible to even imagined before.

Steps to awakening series, step 8 of 12

step 8 – You no longer live with a scarcity mindset because you see abundance everywhere

In this step, we make another huge paradigm shift. All of a sudden, we start to see abundance everywhere we look.

We notice the amount of life around us is brimming into the billions and trillions with but a simple short walk through an acre of parkland or forest.

We recognize that each leaf on each branch on each tree although collectively magical, still has a life of its own, breathing in and out the same air we do.

We notice that together the trees that line these forested areas generate abundant amounts of life.

Even the so-called ‘weeds’ that people cut down are food for the birds and the bees who play a key role in sustaining the biodiversity of the planet that we live on. 

If we look really close with the right tools then we can actually see the leaves, bushes and, flowers start shimmering in the wind and vibrating to the beat of their own unique drum.  

Realizing this, takes us from the intellectual to the visibly obvious view of just how big the earth actually is.

As a result, we see that there is more than enough for everyone around the world and that the idea of lack is just that, an idea, belief or a mindset that has been instilled over a lifetime.

As such we understand now that it can be flipped on and off like a switch.

 A biological example of abundance is right inside all of us as was the intention of God, Source or the Universe from the beginning.  It is Blood.

If I withdraw a litre of blood from my body it will make no difference to me except to possibly make me healthier. This is not a flaw in the design of the human body.

Not only does a human reproduce that lost litre within a coupe of days but the blood that was withdrawn can go into other humans and save lives, creating more abundance.

Above are a pair of single examples, one from Nature and one from Biology which yield massive abundance. If these two small ideas can do that then the possibilities for abundance are truly Unlimited

Steps to awakening series, step 7 of 12

Step 7- Your inner world becomes just as real as “the world of the 10,000 things” as the Tao Te Ching calls our 3D world of physical form

In essence, this step just reinforces what some of the other steps are saying to us.  It means that once again we get to create our future.

However, as the good Dr. says, we are doing it from nowhere as no-body, no time, no space and, we literally have to become nothing.

 The way we do this is with our eyes closed. From that place, we can create a future reality that we would like to see manifest.

When we do this over and over every single day then our brain starts believing that it is true and our physiology will start to reflect that change. 

The decisions we make become aligned with our desires and we will knowingly and unknowingly seek out the things that need to be done in order to take us to our destination.

The best part about this is that very quickly we can see synchronicity in our daily life and we know that these are a reminder and a reinforcement that what we are doing is working.

Not only does this help us create our future but it regulates our bodies in the present. We turn off the stress response in the autonomic nervous system and in turn, we return to homeostasis.

The infinite intelligence that flows through our bodies and performs countless functions that we never even think about like breathing while we are asleep begins to operate more efficiently. Our hearts pumping and blood travelling through the circulatory system carrying oxygen and nutrients to our tissues become stronger and healthier.

This list is truly endless just like the possibilities available to us in the quantum field.
