Overcoming Self-Defeating Habits Energetically

enlightenimage5

You know all of those things you do on a daily, or maybe it’s weekly or monthly basis that you feel completely ashamed about and remorseful after you do them? Maybe it’s indulging in way too much processed foods even though you know the detrimental effects they have on your body, or maybe it’s the occasional cigarette even though you technically “quit” months ago. As we’ve all heard by now, our subconscious belief systems are what determine our reality and what choices we make a majority of the time. So how do we use this plus the laws of energy in order to unravel these self-defeating habits once and for all? The answer (as always in this spiritual journey).. duh duh duhhhh LOVE. The integration of the ego (awakening process) is about unraveling each judgment we have against ourselves, so that we may be brought back into alignment with our divine nature or also known as unconditional love. The things you can’t seem to “stop” doing are actually the things in which you have spent the most “energy” judging yourself because of. Let’s say you have been on a ‘diet’ of some sort your whole life, well that’s a lot of time and energy spent focused around food AND not to mention, how many times have you used food as a means to either judge yourself as “good” or “bad”(when I eat the broccoli I’m good, but the brownie I’m bad)? In the game of energy, the only thing that can heal and transform our judgments is love. So in order to break through unhealthy patterns we must first use complete honesty as our guide as to where the place inside of our heart that needs love the most in order to heal. In the case of the dieter who wants to stop eating, the most honest confession firstly may sound something like, “I don’t know how to stop judging myself because of the foods I eat, I surrender this issue to the light of divinity to resolve on my behalf” (and at this point send love to this judgment) Or for those with a spiritually decorated ego structure, we’ve all heard that judgment and non-self love is ‘bad’ and not appropriate for the spiritual seeker that we are, so we may even say, “I don’t know to stop judging myself FOR judging myself about what foods I eat, I surrender this to the light of divinity to resolve on my behalf, I love you judgment, I love you.” Now, here’s the “tricky” part. You must be completely fine with making any decision you want to make after that, if the next day you eat a plate full of brownies, Enjoy them! And keep enjoying and sending love to EVERY DECISION YOU MAKE, and every feeling you have thus after. Once the ego is no longer being judged because of the decisions it’s making, no one is chastising it for anything, the need to make these decisions no longer is needed. Who wants to act bad when no one is telling you your behavior is bad anymore? But if you eat the brownies and you still feel that overwhelming pang of judgment on yourself, then it’s back to step one, loving the judgment, loving the judgment of the judgment, etc. Once ALLLLLL feelings, judgments belief systems are loved UNCONDITIONALLY, our higher self expands which translates into “bad” habits or behaviors dropping naturally. NO effort required! So just love everything about yourself. Nothing is “bad” until you have named it as such, and one day you will have loved yourself so much that having an occasional brownie won’t even make you flinch, nor will eating healthy/being healthy all day long either. NO judgment, all love, you are more powerful than you think 🙂

Why We Keep Manifesting Situations that Incite “Negative” Emotions

No feeling or emotion happens by accident. In fact, if we have been witness to a certain emotion arising in our body it is the clear signal that said emotion is only arising in order to be healed by us. All emotions are healed by the actual feeling of them. The only way “out” is “through.” When we think of things in these terms, it becomes clear why we manifest situations time and again that act as the catalysts that prompt our hearts to feel certain ways.  For example, if there is repressed anger in our emotional body we will find that we manifest situations in our outer reality that make us angry, over and over again until this emotion has been observed, felt and unconditionally loved by us. On one level of understanding it may seem as though we are attracting to us “negative” circumstances because we have done something wrong or we have some sort of subconscious belief that is out of alignment with what we truly want and for that reason we continue to attract to us circumstances that make us angry. When we see things from this perspective it is no wonder why so many of us are still blaming ourselves for our lives and how things appear in our outer reality and why certain emotions seem as though they pop up over and over again without ever being healed. However, true healing and transformation can only occur when we do the one thing that may seem the most scary or painful even…welcome all emotions in, no matter how they feel. By seeing ourselves as the light of awareness that actually has the power to energetically transcend all perceived “painful” emotions by simply letting them be exactly as they are and sending love to them with our intention and breath, we actually become the savior we have been waiting for. The divine within all of us is waking up. Gone are the days when we needed a third party healer or shaman in order to heal things for us, or to remove blockages on our behalf. We are the light of the divine that our hearts are pleading and praying for in order to be liberated from its pain.  See each emotion as another aspect of your inner child that is desperately wanting not only your attention but your love. When unhealed emotions that were used to being shunned and judged as “bad” are shown unconditional acceptance and love it will be amazing how quickly we begin to heal our hearts and move through painful feelings. The next time a situation happens that prompts your heart to feel sad, angry, frustrated, disappointed or any other emotion that has previously been judged by you as “not acceptable,” look at this situation as an opportunity for healing and to give your inner child some desperately needed love and affection. The more we blame ourselves for our life’s circumstances, the more our inner child feels not only criticized but also abandoned when it needs love the most. True freedom from all emotions lies in the willingness to surrender to that emotion. Surrender is the natural precursor for the light of our being (our divine nature which is pure love) to flood in and wrap this emotion in the warmth of its unconditional love.
