In traditional depictions labyrinths, the escape passage is on the outside, but in the maze of your conditioned self, the only way out is within the core of your being. Your inner self is eternally blissful and at peace; you simply need to know how to access it by first and foremost, transcending the maze of your postnatal conditioning.
Scientists have discovered that up to the age of seven, a child’s brain is in a significantly more receptive state than it is during their teenage years and adulthood. During these initial years, the brain is locked in hypnotic theta brainwaves. The brain is like a recording device during the first seven years of our lives. By just observing their immediate environment through their five senses, children are easily moulded to fit in with the society in which they’ve chosen to incarnate.
“Give me the child until he is seven and I’ll give you the man.” ─Francis Xavier
By the time we reach adulthood, our minds are brimming with patterns that not only contradict themselves but also distort our perception of the present. The typical definition of a maze is something you get lost in and can’t find your way out of. The very same can be said for our postnatal conditioning. Have you noticed how each morning after you get out of bed after sleeping, the monkeys of your past hop on your back to try to weigh you down?
Negative beliefs unconsciously gobbled up from the minds of others, redundant habits you just can’t shake off, automatic emotional rollercoasters that trigger you into fear-based states, misperceptions of the present moment, avoiding things you shouldn’t out of fear (safety behaviours), are just a few of the things that make up the maze of your conditioned self.
What is the way out of the maze of your mind?
Stillness, which is your natural state. Once you know how to retreat in the centre of your being, you’re able to observe your conditioning rotating around you similarly to the way the planets orbit the sun to make up our solar system. Just as the sun shines its light on the planets, so too must we shine the light of our conscious awareness into the dark tomb of our unconscious mind.
Most can’t be still all day every day, however, in fact, we’re not designed to be. We have an ego for a reason; it is a divine tool if used correctly. Having thoughts and emotions is fine, they are what make us human, after all. As long as you use these faculties consciously then they won’t bother you. Your thoughts only trouble you when you believe in the automatic, involuntary patterns that reflect your past experiences. Once you allow them to define you, even when they’ve got nothing to do with who you truly are, they trigger you into believing you’re someone or something you’re not.
Working with these patterns when you’re triggered, observing them without judgement; becoming conscious of the beliefs generating the thoughts and fear-based emotions and then returning into your natural state to realign with the Higher Self is the essence of my book, The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind.
You already innately know everything that I say in the book. Once you’re triggered into fear, doubt, anger or depression, however, a veil of forgetfulness eclipses your windows of perception. You forget what you already know when you’re operating from a low vibration. My book is designed to simply tap you on the shoulder once you’re triggered, to remind you of your true identity beyond space and time, beyond name and form, beyond what you always believed defines you.
“Rewiring the nodes in the maze of your mind will, in time, loosen the resistance and allow you to live in the ebb and flow of existence much easier. This is the very essence of the concept of surrender. It is to surrender the need to control and to understand over to the greater self, who knows why and how all things happen.”
─Craig Woods, The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind
The mind will always be a maze, but you can rewire it to give you easier access in your natural state. Once you realise that the mind is simply a tool to help you create your life consciously, perform conscious actions and to focus your consciousness in the here and now, then it’s need to fearfully control your life will begin to dissolve. You’ll rely more on your higher power for guidance and reason. The moment you become your still and at peace, the Higher Self infuses the thinking mind with inspiring thoughts and wisdom; my book simply teaches you how to attune to the teacher that is already latent within you.
One cannot fix the ego with the ego; consciousness is required to transcend these patterns of limitation as one can’t fix a problem with the same level of consciousness that created it!
Are you ready to go within, into the transcendent realm of your natural state, where joy, love and synchronicity abound? Well then, let’s go!”
