"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." (Anonymous)
If your body is broken, it can become whole again given time, patience,
work, and faith. These exercises are only a supplement to
any other medical or alternative treatments.
Exercise #1 -
Rewind the Tape:
See the broken part of your
body as it is. Then imagine it is going backwards in time to its original
state of wholeness and health. Like a tape that is played backwards, what
starts out as being broken rebuilds itself into being whole. Your body
responds very powerfully to your vision of it. Gradually, as it heals,
your vision will start with your body being progressively less broken…
until finally it starts with your body being fully healed.
Exercise #2 -
Imagine that the most expert
surgeon in the world is working on the broken part of your body. See them
using golden threads of light to stitch up the breakage until it is totally
healed. See the golden light dissolving into the broken area pulling it
back into a state of wholeness.
Exercise #3 -
Bath of Light:
Bathe the broken part of your
body with golden, white healing light. See the light filling in the dark
"cracks" of brokenness until all is light and none is dark… and your body
is back into a state of wholeness.
Exercise #4 -
When something is broken, it
is because someone broke it. Whether you view God, another individual, or
yourself as the culprit, the broken part of your body will heal more quickly
and thoroughly when you forgive who broke it and how it became broken.
So, it you are bitter and unforgiving, know that you are only keeping the
wounded part broken. Remember that forgiveness and love are the magic
Unless a body part is missing, what remains can be
healed. Your body can restore itself to wholeness. At best, it can
become as good as new while, at least, it can be improved from its broken
state. If you are only relying to medicines to do your healing for you… you
are not doing the best that you can for yourself. Those who do this inner
work achieve outer healing much more quickly.
"All negativity is an illusion created by the limited mind to protect
and defend itself." (Ambika Wauters)
Positive thoughts transform your life by filling it with joy, hope, optimism,
and ultimately, success. Negative ones make you sick and keep you poor
Kick the Negativity Habit:
Negativity is a habit that has been
created by your repeated choice of thoughts. Since it is a habit, it
can be broken with determination, repeated practice, and time. To break
that habit, two critical things are required:
comes from the desire to stop the damage to your
health, your wealth, and your happiness caused by negativity.
comes from sticking to your decision to kick the
negativity habit by adopting positive, empowering thoughts, speech, and
Monitor Your Thoughts:
Do you think about yourself negatively?
Do you view others negatively? Do you view life negatively?
If so, your thinking is against you.
Negativity about Yourself:
As in, you think -
"I screwed that up again"
"I just can't do anything right"
or "I can never succeed
because [fill in the blank]", etc -
constantly about yourself.
Negativity about Others:
As in, you think -
"No one likes me" or
"They are out to get me" or
"I'll just end up getting hurt in the end", etc
- constantly about others
(family, friends, or strangers).
Negativity about Life:
As in, you think
"I just have bad luck" or
"Things never go my way" or
"Things always go wrong", etc.
"Negativity Reframing" means thinking the opposite as in
"I always succeed",
"I am likeable",
"Things always go my way!"
Monitor Your Speech:
If you are wondering about what you are
thinking, all you have to do is listen to how you are speaking.
Whenever you hear yourself saying anything negative about yourself,
others, or life, stop and replace that with positive ideas and words.
Monitoring your thoughts and speech is a consistent, conscious
decision which takes time and practice. Yet the effort is well worth it:
one positive thought can erase 1000 negative ones while one positive word
spoken can erase 100 negative ones.
"Negativity Reframing" means finding the positive in the
situation and speaking only about it. Soon positivity in thoughts and
speech will become a habit.
Monitor Your Actions:
If you are wondering about the effect of
your thoughts and speech, all you have to do is look at your actions.
If things did not go your way, what did positive lesson did you learn?
How can you use that learning to create success next time? How can you
turn that problem into an opportunity?
This is where "Negativity Reframing" gains its power: negativity stops
you, while reframing events positively keeps you going from smaller to
"Watch your thoughts and feelings, for
they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch
your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they
become your character. Watch your character, for it becomes your
If you want to really move forward in your life, then you need to eliminate
your negative emotions... which are most often driven by your negative thoughts.
Scaling the Problem:
Each day, each one of us thinks - literally -
hundreds of thousands of thoughts which drive our feelings. Although we
do think positive thoughts, most of us experience negative thoughts and
the related feelings.
When our negative thoughts and feelings outweigh the positive ones, they
are directly responsible for keeping us from creating the happy, healthy,
and wealthy lives we want.
Only we think our thoughts. Only we
feel our feelings. Only we can change them.
Negative thoughts breed negative emotions.
They build on one another if not stopped. They become worse over time
unless stopped. Systematic Diffusion is a technique where you start by
acknowledging your negative thoughts-feelings and then gradually turn
For example, if you think,
"I hate this person",
simply notice the thought at first. Then think,
"I am sure they are doing the best they can."
Instead of fighting your mind's negativity all at
once, take baby steps to slowly move your thoughts into more
Emotions are more powerful than thoughts.
You can use powerful positive emotions to reverse your negative thoughts.
For example, when a negative thought comes up, intentionally
remember a situation when you felt powerful and positive. Recall this
time in precise detail by engaging all your senses (what were you seeing,
hearing, and touching). The more you can connect with positive emotions,
the more you will banish negative thoughts.
If your thoughts and emotions are both
negative, you need to stop reacting to them. Get into the habit of telling
yourself that although your mind and emotions are not serving you "right
now", that is not always the case.
Remember: all conditions are temporary. Today was better than yesterday.
Tomorrow will be better than today. Connect with what went well today and
let go of all else: you will become more positive.
Each day spend 10 minutes consciously introducing
new, positive thoughts and feelings into your mind. These are not naturally
occurring thoughts and feelings, rather they are ones you WANT to have
because they support your goals. When you start filling your mind-heart
with positive thoughts, feelings, and images and keep on doing it, you will
change your life.
Each day build up positive thoughts
and feelings by saying or listening to affirmations you create as you
go through the day. The first affirmation ever invented was:
"Every day, in every way, I am getting better and
better". Start with this
one and you can eliminate negativity - for good.
"To understand all is to forgive all."
Those who are trapped in the past and cannot break free from it, need
to unleash their spirit to free their future. There simply is no
future for those who are living in the past.
Some people spend their entire lives being trapped
in the past. Whether it is an accident, the death of a loved one, a
natural disaster, a crime, this kind of crucial event stops their forward
motion in life. They become stuck in that past event unable to create
the future without dragging that past right into it.
Understand the Trap:
Before you can become free of the past,
you must understand what is trapping you there.
Is it because you feel that being trapped in the
past... makes you a good person inside... gains the approval, respect,
or sympathy of others... meets the expectations of loved ones... is
required by society or religion?"
To spring the trap of the past, you must transcend
these internal barriers of thought, belief, and attitude.
Otherwise, you are allowing the past to keep you
firmly in its grip, thereby destroying your future.
Do whatever it takes to complete putting attention
on the past. For example, if you are trapped in the past... by an accident,
heal body-mind-emotions from it... by the death of a loved one, decide to
do what will have honored their life instead of mourning their death... by
a natural disaster, move to where you can feel safe... by crime, forgive
the criminal and repair their damage.
Whatever it is, accept that
it was karma and get closure on the past.
Less Each Day:
To become free from the past, you need to know
how trapped by it you truly are. How many hours a day are you looking
back on the past? Jot this time expenditure down on a calendar for a
full week. During the next week, decide to spend one hour less a day
on the past and fill that hour with something that you enjoy doing.
With each week that passes, spend another hour less on the past... until
you spend no time on it.
Pray for help in doing this!
The future needs to become much more attractive
to you than the past has been. What is it that always engages your
interest and passion? Focus on that joyful pursuit to connect in the
power of now. For all power and pleasure is to be found in the "flow"
of the present moment: the total immersion in an all absorbing activity.
When you are totally engaged in the now moment,
there is literally no time or space for becoming trapped in the past.
