Limiting Beliefs Hijack your Perception

We enter this world with such joy, optimism and excitement glistening in our eyes as a newborn baby. The adults around us are in awe as they peer into our eyes; as they can see their own, divine self, gazing back at them.

A few years later, as the ego begins to take shape as a result of our interactions with our environment, that light begins to fade. We start to walk, talk and behave like everyone around us; this is what it means to become conditioned by our surroundings. We’re influenced so easily during the first seven years of our lives because the brain is much more impressionable during them. The average person’s brain is in Beta brainwaves for the majority of their day; children’s however, are locked in Theta brainwaves; which are hypnotic!

This means children become conditioned merely by observing their environment. The information decoded through their senses sets the foundation of their personality structure for the remainder of their lives. We must be careful of how we behave in front of children as they pick up on the smallest reactions and copy them; monkey see, monkey do.

“A third story concerns the plasticity of the youthful mind. I heard my mother remark occasionally: ‘A man who accepts a job under anyone is a slave.’ That impression became so indelibly fixed that even after my marriage I refused all positions. I met expenses by investing my family endowment in land. Moral: Good and positive suggestions should instruct the sensitive ears of children. Their early ideas long remain sharply etched.” – Sri Yukteswar (Autobiography of a Yogi)

By the time we reach adulthood, we have a host of habits, mental and emotional patterns and we have no clue how we’ve acquired them. Our reactions become just like those we spend the most our time with; probably our friends. I’ve noticed that most teenagers react to situations in the exact same way their friends do; why is this? It’s purely because they unconsciously believe, on some level, they need to fit in order to be accepted by everyone around them.

Humanity can be said to resemble a jigsaw puzzle, with each person representing a piece of the puzzle. We’re created by the divine to be a particular shape, size and colour so we can fit in with the rest of the pieces to form the picture. Many believe they’re fitting in by being just like everyone around them; but each piece is individualised, unique. Your true self is nothing like you’ve been told to believe it is. You can’t fit in if you’re trying to be a piece that you’re not by copying everyone around you; when you become your true self, you effortlessly click into the collective consciousness and inspire others to do the same. Trying to be a piece you’re not is the most painful existence there is; suffering is the end result.

Each piece, each person is of the same value because the picture would be incomplete without them; that’s how valuable you are; Humanity would be incomplete without you.

Your reactions are driven by your unconscious beliefs, and until you bring those beliefs into awareness then they’ll continue to control the way you perceive and react to the circumstances you manifest. When we were children, we absorbed the most dominant beliefs of those around us by observing their behaviour; this is because our beliefs are the basis of all our behaviour; yes, I said all.

Many believe that their habits aren’t a choice, but they are. The subconscious is the habit mind; when you were a child, your mother probably had to remind you for a couple of months every night before you went to bed to brush your teeth, eventually, it became second-nature; but that doesn’t mean you lost your ability to choose whether you should brush your teeth or not; you do so because you believe brushing your teeth serves you in a positive way, in which it does.

You’re still motivated, to this day (I hope), to brush your teeth because you know it benefits you. The same can be said with all your other habits too! You only keep choosing them because you believe they serve you more than the alternative does. So, if you have a bad habit that you wish to drop, you need to come to terms with why you believe the habit serves you; and ultimately why you’re choosing something you don’t prefer on a daily basis.

We always feel motivated to do what we believe serves us best, but if we’ve got a mind full to the brim of unconscious, fear-based belief systems then our motivations and behaviour will reflect those beliefs. You’ll avoid things, people and places you shouldn’t out of fear; you’ll also shun your passion and soul-driven excitement for the mediocre, the mundane and the familiar.

Bringing these beliefs into conscious awareness, and then realising how the belief is total nonsense is the key to dissolving them and changing your habits. I said realising for a very important reason. Realisations rewire the subconscious; once you see the truth about a situation, you can never go back to your old ways. Realising how these beliefs are illogical and just flat out lies is the best way of reprogramming your mind. The subconscious controls around 95% of your power, your energy, the other 5% is all you have left for your conscious mind to work with; but even the smallest touch of conscious awareness can pave the way for great change and transformation if done correctly.

An example would be the best way to illustrate the points I’m making:

When I was just eight weeks old, I had life-saving surgery on my aortic valve attached to my heart. I’ve been fine ever since, thankfully. Every couple of years I have an MRI scan done just to make sure everything is in working order. Growing up, my mother drilled the belief into my mind that I had something wrong with my heart (even though it wasn’t even my heart but my artery which was repaired).

Ignorance truly is bliss because for years I wasn’t even affected by this belief; I would go running, swimming, play football and not even worry about my heart. Yet, I would often have panic attacks and worry about my health all the time during these years. My spiritual awakening began in 2010 as a result of this awakening, I become aware of the belief that I believed something was wrong with my heart. This triggered me into fearing to raise my heart rate at all for a few years. I was scared to walk upstairs, walk uphill, go running, swimming, play football; all because I become conscious of the belief. Becoming aware of the belief wasn’t enough; because I saw that I had it but it was still controlling my behaviour; I was too afraid to go beyond it. Yet, one night I had a major epiphany…

I realised that the complete OPPOSITE is actually true. The heart is a muscle, and just like any other muscle, if you don’t exercise then it gets weaker. I believed staying indoors and being less active was keeping me safe when in fact, the opposite is true; the safest thing someone with my medical history can do is be active, fit, healthy and strong. The doctors always encouraged me to exercise and I told him about my struggle and he was super sad to see me go through what I was; he told me that my mother shouldn’t have said those things to me but the past is the past; I don’t blame her for my beliefs as it was me who chose to buy into them. Upon having this realisation, however, the fear of exercising faded. I’m running again now, without fear and feel fantastic.

The majority of our beliefs are unconscious. I knew I had the belief that I had something wrong with my heart but I didn’t realise for a while that as a result of that belief I also believed not exercising would keep me safe and prolong my existence. Fear-based belief systems spawn others; these are known as schemas or core beliefs in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).

“Until you make the unconscious, conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.” ─Carl Jung

The unconscious is like a dark tomb; until you shine the light of your conscious mind into it, then the fear-based beliefs will continue to hijack your windows of perception. This means you’ll be perceiving your reality through a lens or filter that you’re not even aware of! It’s like having rose coloured glasses on but not even seeing the rose; you believe everything is coloured normally when it’s not.

How do we become aware of our fear-based beliefs?

Your emotions are key. Any time you’re triggered into a fear-based state, it is an invitation into more of your true self. Working with your fears, your emotions, can help you identify the beliefs that pertain to them as you only feel any form of fear when you BELIEVE you’re in some form of danger.

People can turn on the stress response by thought alone; the moment you believe a disempowering thought, you’re triggered into a fear-based state. Being the observer to the conditioned self; to be able to watch your thoughts without allowing them to define you is the key to transcending the power you believe the past has over you.

In my book, The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind, there are a host of tools and examples which can help you become aware of, and transform your subconscious. I encourage you to check it out if you’ve found this particular blog helpful. (Link at the bottom).

The ego and the mind are one and the same. The mind is an instrument we utilise to focus our consciousness in the physical realm. Many people’s instruments, however, have hijacked their consciousness. Their mind uses them, rather than them using their mind. The conditioned ego desires to control its experience of physical reality because of its deep innate fear of the unknown. This is a survival mechanism built into the ego to keep itself safe, to avoid any possible dangers to the self. Living a meditative life and gracefully embracing the unknown are synonymous. Almost impossible, it is, however, to be at peace in the present moment when your mind is full of mechanisms that prevent you from doing so!” 

─Craig Woods: The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind

Our beliefs are what divides us as a civilisation; whether they be religious, political, sexual or some other form of dogma. The best way to transform our society is to transform yourself; your example alone will then touch the hearts of and transform thousands. We’re living in an age where collective belief systems are being burned in the fires of transformation and rebirth; from those ashes will arise a new society, a new civilisation, based on equality, and global unity while at the same time, acknowledging each culture, society and person for their individuality.

Getting Creative: Building a Future Self

The illusion of linear time hypnotises us the moment we come out the womb. Quantum Physicists are discovering, however, that on the most fundamental level of reality, all things, people, places, realities, events─the entirety of creation co-exists, simultaneously in an invisible field of energy and information─this is the Quantum Field.

The darkness we experience behind closed eyes during deep meditation is this field. When meditative practice is executed correctly, we transcend our time bound mind, personality, and identification with our mortal coil to go beyond linearity into the non-physical domain. This field isn’t experienced with the senses but perceived as an awareness; it is from this place that all conscious creation takes place.

The Quantum Field is the void from which all things in existence arise. Any reality you can conceive of already exists; including all the versions of yourself, you can imagine.

“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it.”

 ─Mohammed Ali

Many allow their past experiences to define them. Yet, it is only the belief that those experiences are theirs, which keeps them defined by timelines which may not be relevant to who they are today. What do I mean? Stay with me here because these multi-dimensional concepts can be challenging to grasp initially.

Every change we make in our inner world is a complete change; we not only change the future, but the past is equally as malleable. A true transformation is a shift to another timeline; where we move to a parallel reality reflective of the new state of being or a version of ourselves, we’ve become.

I’ll give you an example to illustrate my point. My memories tell me that I used to be a drug addict from the age of fourteen to twenty-three. After a spiritual experience in 2010, however, everything changed. I won’t go into the details of the experience, but I assure you that I woke up the next day a completely different person. I felt the shift, viscerally. I had new desires, new goals, motivations, but most importantly, I had no cravings for intoxicants. I feel as if I never suffered from the addictions in the first place, and the reality is that it’s true. In this timeline, I never was a drug addict; even if my memories tell me that I was.

Fast forward over a decade later, and I’m still free from those addictions. When I reflect upon the memories between my ears, though, most of them feel like someone else’s. The changes that occurred within me were so radical that my memories feel like someone else’s experiences, and that’s because they are.

However, if we believe the memories between our ears are our own, thus allow experiences from a different timeline to define us, they still affect our brain and biology the same way real experiences do. This is because our perception signals our gene expression. Belief is a powerful force, and for the most part, it is an unconscious process within a person until they endeavour to become conscious of what’s going on inside them.

Self-awareness is the basis of shadow work, but that is all it is for─to know thyself. The Tibetan definition of the word, Meditation, means to become familiar with, but familiar with what? The more aware you become of your true self, then the more aware you become of what isn’t by contrast. Most people are programmed to resist their shadow, and this only reinforces the illusions of the past within them and consequently, keeps them defined by timelines they’re no longer on!

The good news is that in the same way one focuses on the past and reinforces tendencies and habits via their association, so too can we focus on the future selves we wish to become and prime our brain and body ahead of the experiences relevant to them.

How do we envision a future self?

First and foremost, it’s crucial to become clear on what you want your future to look like; a clear intention is vital. Once you know what you want, you can imagine being in that timeline, having the experiences that version of yourself is having in the eternal now. It is essential to be as specific and detailed as you can as this creates a clear intention. Think of intention as a blueprint you’re handing over to your higher self. The better the blueprint, the better the non-physical aspect of your consciousness can operate as it has more to work with.

Most keep their dreams at arm’s length because they lack clarity on what they want, or who they wish to become. So, the first step is to be clear on who you want to be. Changing your mind all the time is the same as handing one blueprint over to the universe, then while the higher self is in the process of building that reality, you tell it to scrap it and hand it another, and another, and another until you’ve become old a lot faster than you should have because you’ve allowed the hormones of stress to dictate your life.

If you don’t know what you want, then I encourage you to do some soul searching to discover what you’re passionate about in life. Follow your passions, and they’ll lead you to your purpose.

The next step is to accept the reality you’re in now. Acceptance is the key to any real, lasting changes because resistance to what you don’t prefer only reinforces it in your reality. So, if you have certain tendencies or a living situation, you don’t like right now, first of all, acknowledge and accept it. The reality you’re in now is the result of your present state of consciousness, and to shift your state you must, first of all, acknowledge and allow the energy of your current state to flow. Resistance only blocks the energy; thus, you won’t be able to move through what you do not prefer.

After accepting and acknowledging your present reality, it’s time to connect to the future reality, linearly speaking, of your preference. You can move as far up the timescale as you wish to. You might want to connect with a version of you a year into the future, or five or ten─this is up to you. This process is unique for every person.

Once you know the timescale you wish to connect to, then begin to build the blueprint of the self you want to become within that time. Write down or copy and paste the questions below and answer them; this will help you map out a clear intention:

What has your future self achieved what you haven’t yet? What do they think and feel daily? What are their passions and excitements? How do they wake up each day? How do they sleep at the end of each day? What is their living situation? How do they treat their loved ones? How do they treat strangers? How do they communicate with others? What are their goals and ambitions? What dreams have they realised? How do they strive for self-improvement daily? What motivates them? What limiting beliefs have they dissolved? What bad habits have they overcome?

If you can come up with more questions to help you build a vision of your future self, then, by all means, do so. The questions above are just examples; edit them in whatever way serves you best; they are there to help you get a feel for the blueprint you wish to create.

Once you’ve built the model, the next step is to take note of any beliefs or ideas within you that contradict your vision. If you have limiting beliefs in your unconscious that make you resist what you want, then your belief in such ideas will only keep your dreams at arm’s length. Clearing yourself out of the clutter, at least temporarily, that doesn’t align with your vision is essential in this process.

We’re at our most creative when we get beyond what we’ve always defined as our personality. In our natural state, there is no person, only pure consciousness. When we become no-thing, we merge with all that is in the Quantum Field; the realm of infinite possibilities. To make ripples in the fabric of space-time, you’re going to have to, first and foremost, get beyond what you’ve always believed is your identity and the limiting beliefs that pertain to it. This is where meditation comes into play, as meditation takes you beyond the person and the masks that person wears, into your true, nonlinear nature.

The next step is visualisation. Meditate in a dark, quiet space. Disconnect from your outer environment, your body, your senses, become aware of awareness itself in the void of the Quantum Field. In deep stillness, with the blueprint of your clear intention already mapped out, imagine, envision what it would be like to be that person. How would it feel? What is their state of being─embody it. What situations would you like to experience as that person? Imagine doing that from a deep meditative state. After some time of doing this─open your eyes but keep hold of the feeling for as long as you can. Drop the image! As the image you visualised is only there to connect you to the state of being of your future self. Once you connect to their state and become that version, look out, the synchronicity in your outer world will reflect those changes.

One thing I’d like to add is that just because you connect to the future self doesn’t mean you won’t have to work to have the life they’re already living. What connecting does is gives you their mindset, their insight, and inspirations. You see the world through their eyes; thus, you’ll make better decisions from a higher level of perception. Your work will flow a lot easier, especially creative projects─you’ll feel the wisdom of your future self pour through you as I do as I write this chapter.

Consistency is key. You can’t do this once and expect things to change straight away; they might, but it’s highly unlikely. Also, the more energy you give your future self, then the more you’ll dissolve the impressions of the old self. Where you place your attention, your focus is where you place your creative power. Put your attention on a future self, and you’ll effortlessly begin to untangle yourself from those timelines you’ve always believed defines you. One day, you’ll wake up as the future self; ready to conquer the world with joy at your centre.

The steps are as follows. I call them the Seven Steps to the Kingdom of Heaven.

  1. Get clear on what you want (clear intention) (Root Chakra)
  2. Accept your present reality (Sacral Chakra)
  3. Move up the timescale (Solar Plexus Chakra)
  4. Build the blueprint of your future self (Heart Chakra)
  5. Become aware of the beliefs that aren’t aligned with your vision (Throat Chakra)
  6. Visualise being your future self, connect to their state of being (Third Eye Chakra)
  7. Drop the image and keep hold of the state (Crown Chakra).

“The clue to the real purpose of life is to surrender yourself to your ideal with such awareness of its reality that you begin to live the life of the ideal and no longer your own life as it was prior to this surrender. “He calleth things that are not seen as though they were, and the unseen becomes seen.”

-Neville Goddard: The Power of Awareness

The universe is a library of the countless versions of yourself that you can choose to embody at any given moment. That’s how powerful you are at your core. This includes the version or the old self that continuously spins on the carousel of your thinking mind. The moment you cease believing in the thoughts that pertain to it, you’ll reclaim your freedom and be reborn anew, each moment in the eternal now; the window, to all other versions of yourself.

Need help building a Future Self?

The length of my sessions depend upon how much clarity you already have. It usually takes three sessions to help people build a vision from scratch, but you’ve already mastered some of the steps, we can skip them. You need to clarify to me in the form below where you are in your creative process to determine the pricing. Each session costs £100 and is one hour long if you buy them separatley, but I also do three sessions for £222, saving you £88.

If you purchase three sessions, we will arrange three appointments for three hour long sessions (Future Self Building can be a lot to process so we need to give you time to focus). So, fill out the form below and let me know what you want to do. I cannot wait to hear from you!

The Vagus Nerve & Compassion: Empathy Heals

The largest nerve in the body is the vagus nerve, which means wandering in Latin. This particular nerve has multiple branches which diverge from two thick stems rooted in the brainstem and cerebellum that reach to the lowest viscera of your intestines, touching the heart and most other organs along the way. Scientists have found, that compassion and empathy for others arouse this nerve, creating higher levels of coherence between all the organs it touches in the process. In a nutshell; feeling compassion for others heals you.

Fear breaks the body down. When we live via the hormones of stress, we activate the survival gene and constant arousal of this gene weakens the immune system and depletes our energy. Love, on the other hand, the polar opposite of fear, which compassion, empathy and gratitude are a byproduct, restores the body.

Take a look at the map of the energy centres in the spine. Each chakra is related to a gland in the endocrine system and has an intelligence of its own. Our energy is constantly moving up and down our spine depending on our state of being. For example, when you feel love, compassion and empathy for others, you’re operating from your centre point, which is the heart chakra. When you express that love via your words and actions, then you’ve moved up into the throat or blue chakra, directly linked to the way we communicate with others and Mercury (the planet of communication in Astrology).

chakra-yantras-314x400

Conversely, when you live merely from the lower three centres, which are survival or primal centres, you deplete your energy. As a result of your low energy, you’re only going to create more of the same, which means your subconscious programs, habits take you over. To create something new in your life, you need to maintain an elevated state of being. The lowest three energy centres represent fear, survival, our sexual nature (propagation of the species), eating and digestion (which also depletes our energy) and so on.

When people are stressed, they’re more likely to act out of habit. To feel secure from the threats you believe are outside you, then it’s safer to do what feels familiar. This survival mechanism is why change is difficult because the moment they embrace the unknown and step out their comfort zone, their brain allures them to falling back into the familiar.

“Many struggle with their habits because they lack motivation. Even though they say they genuinely want change, they don’t seem to want it enough. I know change can be difficult and even scary at times because to change, one must step outside the comfort zone of their familiar feelings to embrace the unknown. The option of reverting into the same patterns, into the comfort zone is always there, but let me tell you that life truly begins where your comfort zone ends.

─The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind

Now that you see how living from the three lower centres depletes your energy let’s discuss how living from your heart centre repairs your body.

Compassion is fundamental to any spiritual outlook on life. Without the steady foundation of empathy and compassion, one is not going to get very far on their spiritual journey. In a compassionate state, there’s no room for racism, homophobia, nationalism, segregation. You can’t express kindness for one set of people and shun another because they’re skin is a different colour, or they’re sexually attracted to the same gender. Empathy is an all-encompassing state; it has no object; instead, it is the glue that binds us as one cosmic family, united by consciousness.

“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.” – Albert Einstein

When we live from our centre and express our appreciation and compassion through our actions, we trigger the autonomic nervous system (ANS) to begin to restore our body. Dr Joe Dispenza said that feeling gratitude for just ten minutes triggers over 1300 chemicals in the limbic brain that restores and repairs the body. Higher vibrational states also strengthen the immune system. Have you noticed that people who laugh alot, are naturally kind and easy-going rarely get sick?

Bacteria doesn’t make us sick; they are known as opportunistic bacteria because they wait until the hormones of stress compromise our immune system. We permit them to attack us when we live in fear-based states. If one is living from their centre the majority of the day, however, and the vagus nerve is creating that coherence throughout the heart, the brain and other organs then we’re immune to them.

Many in spiritual communities believe they always need protection from something─some spirit, demon, an energy vampire, or what have you. They don’t understand, though, that the belief they need to be protected is a fear-based state of being. If you believe you need protection, then the universe aligns you with forces you in which you require protection. The best form of protection out there is to live from your centre with love at your core. Nothing of a lower vibration can touch you if you’re in an elevated state.

In this day and age, such division exists between nations and continents due to the limiting beliefs in the various religious, political systems and the media reinforcing the division via movies and the news channels. Be a shining light in a very dark world; go beyond the surface differences you perceive with your senses; attune yourself with the aspect of your nature you share with every form of life on this planet and in the entire cosmos; your consciousness.

 “Christ taught that we should love our neighbours as ourselves; this is because our neighbour is our self. We are one consciousness, the same spirit occupying different bodies. The separation we perceive with our five senses is strong, but still an illusion fundamentally.”

Lynne McTaggart, the author of the book The Power of Eight, is the founder of the intention masterclass group. She connects and trains groups of individuals from around the world in the art of sending their intentions to places where war is predominant and where healing is desperately needed. McTaggart has found, via her intention experiments that the act of sending healing and loving intentions in groups of at least eight people not only heals those targeted by the group, but it has a transformative effect on the senders’ lives as well!

“The outcome of both the groups and the experiments, amazing though they were, paled in comparison to what was happening to the participants. The most powerful effect of group intention, an effect overlooked by virtually every popular book on the subject, was on the intenders themselves.”

– Lynne McTaggart, The Power of Eight

As Lynne and others are finding, the best way to heal yourself is to enter the state of self-forgetfulness and focus on loving others. When you become no-thing, you merge with all that is.

Rewriting the Subconscious

The subconscious operates very much like a computer. Whatever is programmed into it via repetition of certain behaviours and our experiences is what controls the majority of our behaviour and experience of life as a whole until we become conscious of the program!

By the time we reach thirty-five years old, 95% of who we are as a personality is controlled by our subconscious or automatic mind. That means the conscious mind only has 5% of your energy to work with. This is why positive thinking doesn’t work for most people, as their emotions often contradict their thoughts. In order to truly rewrite the program, you have to change your state of being, not just your thoughts!

Your state of being comprises of how you act, how you think, how you feel and what you believe to be most true, at any given moment. Our beliefs are the foundation of all our behaviour. They are essentially the blueprint for our persona and physical reality experience as a whole.

“Your personality creates your personal reality.” ─Dr Joe Dispenza

Your current life is a reflection of the energy you’ve put out on a consistent basis. The external world is very much a mirror of your internal state. Ultimately, your outer world is the program made manifest into tangible form.

Defining your mental and emotional patterns as a computer program can actually help you more easily make the changes you desire. When you realise that most of your automatic thoughts and the emotional reactions to them aren’t really personal but habitual, then you won’t take them personally. You’ll begin to observe them impartially, separating yourself from them. The moment you observe thoughts without allowing them to define is when you disconnect your consciousness from them. This is known by neuroscientists as Metacognition; you literally prune synaptic connections in the brain when you no longer believe them!

The average person has around 80,000 thoughts per day and 90% of those thoughts are the same thoughts they had the day before. When one becomes more conscious and lives in the meditative state for some portion of their day then the number of thoughts decreases. The conscious management of your state of being is one of the keys to rewriting the computer program of your subconscious.

If you have fear-based beliefs unknowingly hijacking your windows of perception then you’ll attract, not only circumstances reflective of those beliefs but also synchronicities as well. Responding differently to these signs which try and reinforce your conditioning is the key to going beyond being defined by the program. I touch on this in my book, The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind.

“Every time you respond differently to a circumstance or synchronicity attempting to reinforce an old belief; you’re dissolving the old self. Repetition rewires the subconscious; the more you react correctly to these illusions, the quicker you’ll dissolve your unconscious associations with them. Also, please remember to stay light-hearted throughout this process; it’s simply a game you’re playing with yourself. When you reach the point where you can laugh at the synchronicities trying to reinforce your old self, you’re on your way to blessedness.”

─The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind

The majority of these programs were installed in your brain during the first seven years of your life. This is because the brain is in theta brainwaves during our first seven years, and they are literally hypnotic. Another way of getting into the operating system of the subconscious and changing the blueprint is via the practice of Meditation and visualisation. I recently wrote a blog on the benefits of mental rehearsal and how it affects the brain, please click the link below to read it:

The state between sleep and waking state is where the magic happens, so to speak. If you get to that state then you enter the quantum field; that domain where all potentials exist simultaneously. If you’re capable of imagining a specific version of yourself or an experience you wish to have then what you’re imagining already exists in some reality in space-time. All you have to do is consistently change your energy (your state of being) to match that reality and eventually, your outer world will bend to the change you make within yourself!

f284dcf74554f46f1cd6d1824fbcd9c7

Here is another technique that’s in my book The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind. Neville Goddard, the Christian mystic who taught the Law of Attraction in the United States during the mid-twentieth century, would often this to his students.

“As you lay in bed at night, before you sleep, lay flat on your back, and close your eyes. Now, can you imagine how you would feel if you were already free of the habit? How would you feel if you were the version of yourself you desire to be? What is their state of being? Can you attune to it? Remember, that linear time is an illusion; all versions of you already exist. Embody the state; feel what it would be like to be the person you prefer; think the thoughts you’d be thinking if you were that version. Imagine a friend, visualise them before you; converse with them in your imagination, hear their voice. Tell them that you used to have the habit and that you’ve overcome it, and that you’ll never go back to it again. Imagine them congratulating you; shake their hand, hug them, smell their hair as they embrace you. Visualise what would happen in the outer world if you were to become that version of yourself.

Fall asleep in the feeling of freedom and do it every night until you are. If you desire to be free of illegal substances, alcohol, pornography, or anything else you feel isn’t aligned with your integrity, fall asleep as that version of yourself. When you’re in bed in that lucid state between sleep and waking where you get beyond yourself, you’re in the domain of the Quantum Field. If you persist in falling asleep in the assumption of freedom, it eventually rewires the subconscious; thus, your beliefs and motivations automatically change.”

─The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind

You can’t change the ego with the ego: you can’t fix the subconscious with the limited 5% of the conscious mind. Consciousness is required and consciousness means self-awareness─to first of all, become conscious of the thoughts, beliefs, emotions and habits which no longer serve you and modify them.

Once you change your energy on a consistent basis then your life will change to reflect your new state. Make gratitude your heartbeat and appreciation your breath. Joy is your natural state, once you truly know this you’ll do everything you can to embody it.

Neuroplasticity: Dissolving the Old-Self

For the most part, the human brain is a record of the past. All our past experiences, memories, beliefs, unconscious perceptions and habits are stored within the circuitry of our brain. The neurological network is a matrix formed by clusters of nerve cells. Many believe that once they’re set in their ways, that it’s, at the very least, extremely challenging to break free of their redundant habits─or, so they thought! 

Thanks to the latest advancements in technology, we now possess the ability to scan the brain and the body while individuals are in altered states of consciousness invoked by spiritual practices such as prayer and meditation. We also know that nerve cells that no longer fire together, no longer wire together, which means that if you cease doing something or thinking a certain way, the pathways in the brain concerning that tendency literally start to dissolve. 

As an example, imagine you were chased by a stray dog when you were a child and were lucky to get inside your home before it bit you. Due to the experience, you develop a phobia of dogs─you’re programmed to believe they pose a threat to your survival. As a result, there will be a cluster of nerve cells in your brain that are representative of the memory and thoughts associated with the experience. 

Now, I know it’s easier said than done, but if you defy your fears, by slowly beginning to interact with dogs again, you’ll start to break apart that cluster of nerve cells that pertain to the phobia. New synaptic connections will emerge in the brain as a result of you changing your belief that all dogs are a threat when in fact, if brought up correctly, most dogs are loving, loyal and caring creatures.

When you respond to circumstances which usually trigger you into fear-based states of being differently, then you also prune their synaptic connections in your brain. Neuroscientists know this process as Metacognition.

Metacognition is the conscious observation of yourself─your habits, mental and emotional patterns, reactions and desires so you can begin to have more control over your responses to external stimuli. Consciousness or self-awareness is the first step to freedom as you can’t change something you don’t see. You must light a match in a dark place to become aware of the old self. 

Living a meditative life means being mindful throughout your day with everything you do─whether you’re walking the dog, washing the dishes or stargazing; the act of living immersed in the still waters of the here and now dissolves the old self. When you embrace the present as it is, and hit that sweet spot of the eternal now, you go beyond what you always believed or imagined was yourself. What many think is their personality is just a jumble of thoughts, emotions, beliefs, habits, likes and dislikes that stem from their past. The true self can only be embraced when one is no longer defined by what they imagine to be their past, however. 

“Meditation has also been scientifically proven to untangle the nerve cells in the brain that form the old self. Monks and Nuns have had their brains scanned by neuroscientists as they sat in altered states of consciousness invoked by transcendental meditation, prayer and other practices, and the scientists were amazed at what they beheld. Their frontal lobes lit up as brightly as the sun. They were experiencing levels of bliss, peace, and happiness the researchers hadn’t witnessed before. Meditation invokes a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity, which is the untangling of the nerve cells or hardwiring in the brain, to make space for new synaptic connections to emerge, which promotes conscious change. Meditation, in this sense, is a fire that burns away the old self.”

─The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind 

The true self isn’t defined by the past as your consciousness is transcendent of space and time. Have you noticed that while you’re doing something you genuinely love, that you’re effortlessly thrust into the present moment? Many people call forms of art or writing self-escapism, for example, as they help one become free of their old self, but I don’t agree as the old self was never their true self in the first place! When you drop what you always believed was you can you fully embrace what is!

The present moment is akin to a fire that burns away the neuropathways in the brain that pertain to your conditioning. Making an effort to connect with the present throughout your day, which includes embracing the unknown as the here and now and the unknown are synonymous, will miraculously transform your life. We have the science now to back it up; it isn’t just a bunch of new age, spiritual philosophy─it is grounded in substantial evidence, we’re living in exciting times, for sure!

Science, in a sense, is only just catching up to the wisdom traditions that have been around since time immemorial. I believe that the Bhagavad-Gita, for example, came from a higher age of consciousness where we were more connected to our divine self and the universe as a whole than we are in this day and age: 

“All karma or effects of actions are completely burned away from the liberated being who, free from attachment, with his mind enveloped in wisdom (the higher self), performs the true spiritual fire rite.”– Bhagavad-Gita 4:23

These timeless truths will never go away, but we’re only as good as our ability to execute and embrace them. Transformation is possible for everyone, and it is much easier than we’re told to believe it is. Drop the belief that change is difficult as the idea will only make the challenge even more complicated than it is; thus, you’ll defeat yourself before you even begin. When you start to untangle yourself from the neurological webs of the illusion of the past, you can embrace the here and now with a set of crystal clear windows of perception! Tranquillity begets clarity.

Change your Brainwaves, Change your State of Being

Neuroscience has taken huge strides over the last couple of decades, especially in its studies performed on altered states of consciousness invoked by meditation and prayer. One thing the scientists have discovered is that by focusing our awareness on the space around our body, we slow down our brainwaves, which bring the brain and body into coherence─back into balance.

Have you ever been stargazing? The stars often make me feel at peace, at ease, no matter what kind of day I’ve had, and recently, I’ve realised why…

When you enter your living room, what’s the first thing you notice? Probably the couch, the coffee table, the television or maybe even the pictures on the wall. It’s natural for us to focus on the objects we perceive with our senses. But, what allows those objects to be? What gives them the platform even to exist?

Space! The Final Frontier! These are the voyages─joking, let’s carry on.

Space isn’t empty; it’s brimming with energy and information that is around us at all times. Nikola Tesla, who is regarded as one of the greatest scientists of the last century, said that space is filled with a primary substance, the essence of all things, which he labelled as prana or lifeforce energy. Atoms themselves are 99.9% space. This space is ultimately the consciousness─the fabric of existence.

Convergent focus vs Divergent focus

There are two ways to focus our awareness. A convergent focus is when we narrow our attention on objects in the outer world or on a thought or emotion within ourselves. As a result of such a narrow focus, we live in separation from our timeless self as the smokescreen of linear time covers our awareness. A divergent focus, however, is an opening up of one’s awareness on the space around their body and around them, such as the room they’re occupying, for example.

Neuroscientists have discovered that when we’re living through stress response that we focus on the cause of what triggered us into survival (a convergent focus). Our brainwaves speed up into high-beta, and we get trapped in negative, fear-based thinking and feeling loops because we believe we’re in danger. When one sits down amidst the turbulent emotions they feel and focus their attention on the space around their body and in the room around them (a divergent focus), they slow their brainwaves down. As a result, they change their state of being and move back into alignment.

In laymen’s terms; you can change your state of being and switch off the stress response by focusing on the space around you.

Let’s go stargazing again! As you gaze at those radiant crystals shimmering in the sky, you hone in on the space between you and the stars which slows your brainwaves down. As you calm the electrical storm between your ears, you feel at peace, at ease within yourself. Stargazing changes your state of being and calms the stress response if you’re truly present as you do it.

“The Unmanifested is not only present in this world as silence; it also pervades the entire physical universe as space─from within and without. This is just as easy to miss as silence. Everyone pays attention to the things in space, but who pays attention to space itself?” ─Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now

If during meditation one experiences, even if just for a few seconds, stillness, they’re tapping into space within their bodies. When they focus on the space without, they align with the space within. This is because the inner and outer worlds are fundamentally the same─stillness is space in the inner universe.

Learning how to broaden your focus, and making the practice routine enables you to maintain the state of being you prefer throughout your day. Stillness is your essence, your core-self. Living in this essence is the key to discovering joy, peace and happiness that’s independent of outer circumstances.

A consistent practice of meditation is essential in this day and age. Not only does it align us with the space within and around us, but it gives us a place to rest amidst the turbulence of everything happening around us in today’s world. Meditation wraps us in a protective bubble, so situations don’t disturb us. In my book, The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the maze of your Mind, I touch on this:

“The purpose of meditation is to transcend the old self, which enables one to become a conduit for wisdom. Emptiness is meditation; it’s a state of consciousness where one is free of thought and emotion while they’re anchored in stillness. In this state, one transcends the illusion of linear time, and the fear-based grip the old self has on their consciousness. All the lies, tricks and illusions of the mind are seen through instantly when the sun of pure consciousness rises within oneself. Meditation invokes clarity and the reinforcement of who you truly are.

─The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind

As we awaken more of our true selves, we become aware of the fear-based programs hijacking our consciousness. We realise that our state of consciousness mirrors our perception of the world, and attune to the vast, cosmic intelligence all around us, effortlessly synchronising everything in the manifested universe.

In conclusion, space aligns us with our very own portable paradise. Gaze into the horizon at the beach, watch the sunset or the stars from your balcony at night─learn to consciously switch from a convergent focus to a divergent focus. Most do this without realising, but by making it a conscious practice by focusing on the space around you, you’ll be able to manage your state of being, which can only lead to a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Your Reaction to the Environment Signals the Gene

For decades, we believed genes created diseases and that there’s no way of avoiding our so-called hereditary curses. We assumed that we’re doomed by our DNA and that there’s no escape. Misconceptions such as these, are being blown out the water by the latest findings in science. We’re living in exciting times, indeed, as we’re not only dissolving generational curses but transcending the concept altogether.

Genes create proteins and proteins are responsible for the structure and function of our body. When we’re living in elevated emotional states such as joy and appreciation, our genes respond by creating healthy proteins equal to those emotions. The autonomic nervous system begins to heal and restore the body, and the immune system is also strengthened when we live in joy and appreciation.

Conversely, when we live via the hormones of stress, the survival gene signalled uses up all of the bodies life force energy because it believes it needs to run, fight or hide to survive. The genes created as a result of the stress response aren’t of good quality─this is how overindulgence in the hormones of stress breaks down the physical body, creating disease.

Conditions such as stress and anxiety break the body down due to the maladaptive inner environment they generate over time. Being conscious of one’s emotional state is the first step one must take if they prefer to live a life of joy, vibrant health and wellbeing.

A bit of realism, of course, as it’s almost impossible to feel joy all the time. Everyone has their triggers─those events, people and circumstances which take them out of their natural state of inner peace and joy. Triggers only pull us out of our true self due to our unconscious reaction to them.

Circumstances, however, no matter how dismal, are rendered powerless without our reaction. The reason the stress response is called the stress response is that it’s our unconscious response to the outer environment, which signals the survival gene.

You’re human─we all get triggered as I just wrote. What matters isn’t that you’re triggered, but how long you choose to dwell in the stress response once you are. Shortening the refractory periods of negative emotional states begins the process of starving your cells of the addictive hormones generated in the brain the moment the survival gene is activated. The more you live in joy and appreciation then you’re body and cells respond positively to the new environment you’re giving them. Your body can be an inferno of hellish, tumultuous emotions or a utopia of light, joy and bliss. The choice becomes yours once you become conscious of your emotional state.

In 2017, I was diagnosed with hypochondria and panic disorder by a therapist because I kept having panic attacks. Losing my best friend of fifteen years, who was my dog, only compounded on top of other issues, I was unconsciously suppressing for years. As I grew up, Mother called me a hypochondriac and often said I was just like her Father, my Grandfather, who also struggled with hypochondria himself.

Knowledge is power. When I stumbled across the work of Bruce Lipton and Joe Dispenza, everything changed. I realised that it wasn’t my genes creating the condition, but that the unconscious belief that I was a hypochondriac literally signalled my genes to express themselves in the same way as my Grandfather’s. The only thing perpetuating the condition was my misaligned perception.

What a profound realisation this was!

At first, it was very uncomfortable. The moment I became fully conscious of that pattern, it got worse. Maybe that’s why they say; ignorance is bliss? The heart palpitations, sweaty palms, bouts of dizziness, sleepless nights seemed to get worse while I integrated the emotional pain trapped in my body due to believing I was someone I was not.

I experienced what some call the dark night of the soul…

I realised, through meditation and shadow work that I had a plethora of fear-based beliefs hijacking my perception, which were perpetuating the condition. Even though it was so painful and uncomfortable for me to stay the same, it felt just as difficult, at first, to leave the familiar and embrace the unknown.

My mind believed I was going to die every day for years. As I look back, I’m thankful for these times, as the stars can’t shine at their brightest unless darkness surrounds them. These so-called, dark days, showed me that I not only yearned to survive but also to thrive. 

The moment I ceased believing that I’m doomed because of my genes, my perception of myself and the world radically changed for the better. Unconsciously gobbling up those beliefs from my Mother, signalled my genes to function in the same ways as my ancestors. And who knows how long that pattern has been in my family? I’m proud to state that it ends with me─no more! I wouldn’t wish that hell upon anyone.

My book, The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind, is spreading like wildfire. I wrote it to teach people how to utilise honest methods of introspection and meditation to bring their unconscious programs into consciousness so they can transcend their habitual process and retrieve their energy from the old self:

“Repetition programmes the subconscious mind. You don’t have to think about how to open the refrigerator door, for example, as you’ve done it so many times that it’s become automatic. The subconscious is the habit mind, which isn’t a bad thing in and of itself. It also contains a host of mental and emotional patterns, that have a considerable impact, not only your behaviour but also the kind of people and situations you attract in your life.

The reprogramming of the subconscious becomes a challenge when a person develops a whirlwind of patterns that sabotage their experience of life. This book aims to help them transform these automatic processes.”

The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind

Our reaction to the outer world signals our genes. All circumstances are neutral until our mind defines them as either beneficial or life-threatening. The conditioned mind often defines situations automatically in a fear-based way because it’s desperate to survive; thus, it believes there’s a threat around every corner to stay safe.

This is no way to live; however, my friends. As I just wrote, you’re here to thrive, not only survive. None of us is getting out of this life alive. We might as well embrace the unknown, go ahead, take the dive!

Our environment is powerful. Quite often, the people we spend the most time with shape our personality. If we’re not careful and selective while interacting with others, we may take on certain traits, beliefs and behaviours which don’t benefit us. Some good people aren’t necessarily good for you. If you spend too much time around them, their destructive tendencies begin to rub off on you. We all have family members and friends with such traits, and may even have some self-sabotaging habits ourselves.

I’m an open book about my past. I was a drug addict for almost a decade of my life. From the tender age fourteen to twenty-three, I was taking all kinds of substances to run away from myself. Why? Because I couldn’t cope with the emotions of the survival gene I was unknowingly switching on at the time. When my addictions dissolved, over a decade ago now) I had to come to terms with why I was geared towards them in the first place.

“It is most important to know that sinners or saints are largely made through the company they keep. If a sinner is willing to mend his ways and decides to live in the company of saints, he is bound to change, while a careless spiritual man will deteriorate in the company of wicked people.”─Paramahansa Yogananda

Even though I’ve overcome the addictions and don’t feel tempted in any way, if I spent time with people doing the drugs in front of me all the time, my genes would (my reaction to my outer environment) express themselves in the same way they did when I was an addict! The result is that my cells would start to crave the drugs once more. Changing your outer environment for the better is tremendously vital for creating a better life. I write from experience and the bottom of my heart.

As Christ once said to his disciples; you can’t put new wine into old wineskins. What he means is you can’t create a new life from an old state of being, and you most certainly can’t if you’re still surrounded by the same people, situations which created your current life. Changes must be made within and without!

Get away from negative influences. Even if you have to leave behind someone you believe is your best friend, they’re most likely only keeping you around to reinforce their inclinations. I had to leave many of my friends behind because their substance abuse wasn’t good for me to be around. You can always fall back into negative patterns. Be careful, as the more you advance on the path, the more darkness you’re able to perceive around you.

Become more conscious of your patterns and habits. Take an honest look at yourself and see where you’re self-sabotaging. Also, take note of your triggers and shorten your refractory periods by meditating and changing your state of being once you’re triggered. The more you starve the old-self who feeds off your survival gene, the more you’re feeding the ever-new-self who feeds off your thrival gene.

The Benefits of Mental Rehearsal

Nowadays, modern science is vastly catching up with what the ancients have been teaching since time immemorial: the impact our thoughts have on our experience of physical reality. One thing scientists are coming to terms with is that, if performed in the correct state, there is no difference in mental visualisation and outer experiences─both affect the brain in the same way. 

Recently, there was a study done on people who’d never played the piano. The subjects were split into two groups; one was taught one-handed chords for five days by a professional musician─the other meditated one hour for five days, mentally rehearsing themselves playing the same chords. The results amazed the scientists─those who visualised playing the chords could play them as well as those taught by the musician! The experiment, and many like it, confirms that the act of mentally rehearsing scenes in one’s imagination rewires circuitry in our brains, priming it ahead of the actual experience.

This process can help one acquire new skill sets at an accelerated rate! 

Are there new abilities you wish you had but lack the confidence or motivation to practice? Are there experiences you want to have? Do you desire to make changes to your perception but struggle shaking off the old self? The good news is that if you visualise being the versions of yourself, you prefer consistently─you eventually become them. 

For example, if you’re an author, get into a meditative state and visualise yourself at a book signing, being congratulated for writing a best-seller. If you desire to start drawing manga or cartoons, visualise yourself drawing and colouring masterpieces. Are there any bad habits you want to drop? Imagine yourself overcoming the temptations whenever they arise in your reality, as temptation never goes away─you can only change the way you respond to them. Do you wish to embody divine qualities like kindness, joy, understanding and compassion? Imagine yourself responding to people in such a manner! 

“The imagination is just like any other muscle in the body, the more you use it, the stronger it gets.” ─Bob Ross, The Joy of Painting

Utilising the imagination consciously and lovingly is the key to manifesting your dreams. Too many people’s minds are allowed to run on autopilot for the majority of their day─they’re living unconsciously. 

According to neuroscience, the average person lives in the hormones of stress for around 70% of their day! That’s 70% of your life under the stress response unless you train the imaging faculty.

“Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy; it depends on how you use it. In Catholic churches, it is not uncommon to see depictions of the Virgin Mary standing on a serpent in many of the paintings and statues. The serpent is our creative power, and it must be tamed. We must train ourselves to be more disciplined on the mental level; otherwise, we can harm ourselves by creating experiences we don’t want, which is what many in our society individually, and collectively are doing. The unconscious use of the imagination is the reason the world is in the state it is today. We must become masters of our inner world. Indeed, it’s mastery of the word that leads us to emancipation.”

─ The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind 

During the visualisation process, it’s essential to hold onto the feelings the practice generates. When your dreams crystalise as a tangible reality, you’ll no doubt feel appreciation for life. This is why it’s crucial to feel gratitude in advance for the experiences that have yet to come─linearly speaking. It’s also wise to drop the image you’ve created in your imagination after locking into the state, as the vision of your physical mind pales in comparison to the manifesting power of the higher self. 

The visualisation process helps you lock into the state of your fulfilled desire so the universe can bend to that reality. The fruits of your labours are reflected unto you if you do it consistently─you’ll pull the synchronicities and opportunities to you. Consistency is the key. Make this creative process routine!

“The hardest part about change is not waking up and doing the same thing you did the day before.” ─Dr Joe Dispenza

A morning and evening practice of meditation, gratitude and visualisation, if done consistently, manifests positive changes in your reality. In this day and age, the moment a person opens their eyes, they grab their phone, check their e-mails, Facebook, Instagram─they check into the world while checking out of their dreams. Taking the time to nurture yourself, to set your intentions at the start of each day is essential to realising your dreams. 

The only question is; how much do you really want them? Many say they’re passionate about manifesting their dreams, starting a new business, creating a website or writing a book yet their actions don’t match that passion. Life is a lot shorter than you think. Many die without realising their dreams.

Don’t be one of them!

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.” ─Bruce Lee

If you’re reading this blog, then it’s time to start pursuing those dreams you’ve been holding back on. The universe is telling you to get off your ass and start taking charge of your life. Only you can do it; no one can do it for you. You’ve been given the go-ahead in this very moment. The universe WILL support you in your endeavours if you act with passion and integrity. 

Now, go and create the life you know you deserve.

Align with Your Promised Land

Before incarnating in physical reality, you made specific agreements with the collective consciousness. You agreed on the role you’d play in the game of life, which karmic themes you’d be exploring and also your life’s purpose, which is intrinsic to the desires of your heart.

Many are living under a tremendous amount of self-created pressure. According to recent studies, the average person is subject to the hormones of stress for 70% of their day. Unless you make the required changes, that’s 70% of your life in the stress response. How can we be happy and live an enjoyable life if we’re stressed the majority of it? How can we align with our dreams and desires if we’re living in survival? We’re motivated by fear and anxiety when we’re stressed; thus, we can’t enjoy life in such a state. Inner peace must become your priority if you’re to align with the divine plan.

The main reason people are so stressed out is that they don’t trust in the way their life is unfolding.

I define the Promised Land as the fulfilment of your God-given purpose in life. Those activities, hobbies, talents and interests which set your soul ablaze are no coincidence─your passion is your purpose. This is why you need to be true to yourself and not the beliefs of those around you. Until you liberate your perception from the beliefs of those around you, you’ll never reach your personal Promised Land, as you’ll be too busy searching for someone else’s!

“The universe is centre everywhere circumference nowhere.”─Paramahansa Yogananda

The Promised Land is your natural state, your core vibration, which is unique unto itself, just as you as an individual, are unique. According to Yogananda, every single atom is conscious and imbued with the intelligence of creation, which is the universal mind─the source. Every soul, every fragment of the infinite consciousness, can’t be replicated by another.

If you consistently embody your natural state by focusing on the present without resistance, you align with the divine plan─the desires of your heart manifest in perfect timing as a result. To maintain such a state is to allow life to unfold the way it needs to, and not the way you believe it should. Of course, it would be unrealistic to expect someone to maintain the state all day. Once you’ve noticed that you’ve fallen from grace, however, it’s important to move back into the flow as soon as possible. By doing so, you learn to surrender to the power built into your consciousness.

When people generally hear the word surrender, they believe it means to give up their power or control, and on the level of the ego, it does. You aren’t just the ego; however, you’re also a Higher Self, a Soul and an Oversoul, which are ready to support you with their nonlinear intelligence the moment you get out of your own way. True surrender then, is to recognise to the power latent within the deepest crevice of your heart.

As I wrote previously, the core vibration of your individualised consciousness, can’t be replicated by another. No matter how many star systems you travel to in the vastness of infinity, you’d never find another you─and that is your power. Your core vibration is a current that leads you to your purpose─the state attracts everything you require to fulfil your destiny. Have you noticed how many of the things you wanted a couple of years ago now is already yours? You may not have even realised it, but the universe has already fulfilled your needs. It’s only your linear, timebound mind that refuses to believe so.

The key is a level of faith that borders on unshakable. You can help develop your confidence in the order of things by examining your life. Look back at all the times you’ve been supported by existence. Even the situations you felt were undesirable the moment they manifested, later, you found out they were necessary to teach you things you needed to learn. My point is that all situations can serve you positively if you tweak your perspective of them.

Everyone naturally feels inclined toward certain forms of activity. Yet, many are afraid to follow the call that echoes out their hearts. Doing what you feel called to do goes hand in hand with aligning with the Higher Self. If you lack the self-belief and confidence to go after your passion, you must dig into your unconscious to discover the beliefs preventing you from doing so.

Many hold themselves back because they’re afraid of what others think. The irony is that most of those people are also scared to follow their passion. Be a shining example for those who are around you daily. Show them, with your actions, that they’re as capable as achieving their dreams as you are by manifesting yours before their eyes.

When you muster up the courage to act on your passion, you realise that while performing such actions, you feel free, light and at peace. This is because the impressions of the past fall away the instant we do what we love. We’re plunged into our natural state when the fires of passion set our heart ablaze, as that fire burns the debris of the fear-based beliefs adjacent to the old self.

You’ll only miss your purpose if you continue to live via the hormones of stress most of the time. I’m not saying that you won’t have challenges when you move into your natural state, as it can bring up residual pain that needs transmuting. Challenges such as these, are also part of your destiny and should be validated the moment they arise. What I mean is, however, living under the hormones of stress all the time won’t only break your body down, but it also moves you out of alignment with the synchronising flow of the universe. The path of least resistance is in the flow.

Swimming against the current is the most exhausting thing you can do. When you let go and allow the current to guide you through your intuitive perception, you realise the effortlessness that comes along with being in harmony with existence.

The Metamorphosis of the Ego

Life is an adventure of transformation. One of shedding who you believed you were to embodying your true self; the metamorphosis of the ego is why we incarnated on this beautiful world.

According to neuroscience, most of our conditioning happens during the first seven years of our lives; this is because children’s brains are significantly more receptive adults. Theta brain waves (which their brains are locked in) are hypnotic. Kids are easily programmed in this state of being; they learn things quickly through observing their environment. By the time they’ve become teenagers, there’s a cocoon of unconscious beliefs obscuring their true self.

Nature is full of symbols that can actually, reflect the journey we go through in the rediscovery of our true nature amidst a web of lies if we look at them correctly.

The transformation the caterpillar experiences to become a butterfly, one of nature’s most adored creatures, is comparable to the awakening process many are undergoing.

The caterpillar stage of the insect’s life resembles when we walk the earth without the awareness that there are wings or great potential latent in us; waiting to be activated.

Many who are reading will likely know how it feels to live below your potential; trapped in patterns (emotional, mental, habitual) you can’t shake off. I have lost count of the number of times my conscience ate me alive every time I walked home from a night out with the lads. I knew I had more inside me, but I didn’t know what.

Looking back at that version of myself, I feel nothing but compassion and great appreciation for him. I cherish those caterpillar days because, without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

The contrast those days gave me enabled me to see the light of my truth; we can only see the stars glow at their most radiant when they are surrounded by darkness, so too, do we realize our truth after experiencing what isn’t.

After so many disappointments in my young life; allowing my happiness to be dependent on external conditions, I realized that no one or no-thing was ever going to give me the joy I craved. Everything in this world is transitory; having a beginning and an end. Many believe they’ll find eternal happiness in the forever fleeting experiences of the cosmic drama, only to hit brick walls thanks to the primrose paths their false beliefs lured them down. When I had this realisation, I decided to become a hermit; this is what’s known as the cocoon or more fitting with this article, the chrysalis phase.

“Most people unknowingly conform to a fear-based worldview; they’ve bought into a plethora of beliefs that unconsciously dictate their lives. These unconscious perceptions convince them to perpetuate behaviours that don’t serve them because everyone around them is doing the same; monkey see, monkey do.”

─The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind

When the caterpillar begins its metamorphosis, it stops eating, hangs upside down from a twig or a leaf and spins itself a silky chrysalis; within this protective casing, the insect transforms its body, to eventually emerge as a butterfly.

There were many inner demons I had to confront during those times of great solitude. Much meditation and introspection were required for me to become aware of the beliefs wrapped around the core of my true self. These fear-based perceptions convinced me to behave out of alignment with the light of my truth and to fear illogicalities. I realised there was a plethora of limiting beliefs hijacking my perception; they’d always been there; I was unaware of them as I walked the earth as the caterpillar.

We’re not capable of acting or perceiving beyond our current level of consciousness. I was unaware of fear-based beliefs as I lacked the awareness to see them at the time. Many beat themselves up because they lack the awareness to see the patterns within themselves, but I encourage you to be gentle with yourself. We’re always shown what we need to know in perfect timing; this includes the lies in our mind which force us to misperceive reality.

There were many aha moments when I realised how illogical it was to believe in such limiting and self-defeating ways. Awareness of my unconscious beliefs has freed me more than anything else has. Our social conditioning forms a chrysalis around our consciousness that obstructs our wings from spreading, but there’s another interesting fact about what happens in the chrysalis before the caterpillar emerges as a butterfly.

Scientists have conducted various studies on caterpillars while they were in their transformation. In one test, they purposely broke the chrysalis prematurely while keeping the insect intact, only to discover that by interrupting the natural metamorphosis we inhibit its growth. The struggle the creature undergoes to escape its chrysalis gives it the strength it needs to develop its wings; when we do the work for it, the insect doesn’t reach its potential.

The very same can be said for each one of us.

Many are struggling to break free from the chrysalis of societies lies wrapped around their essence since they emerged from the womb. The struggle, however, doesn’t need to be defined negatively. The ups, the downs; the good days, the bad days, the emotional rollercoasters; the challenges are what help us grow. I’m not saying, in any way, shape or form, that we MUST suffer to evolve; but I don’t know one human being who hasn’t suffered so we’re not there as a species yet.

The challenges, the tests, the trials, form your wings. They develop your character, humble you, and break-down what isn’t you so what is can emerge. Try to see everything in life even-mindedly as the Bhagavad-Gita teaches. Go beyond humanity’s definitions of right and wrong. All things manifest to help you expand and become the butterfly you were created you to be. What you believe is inhibiting is helping you realize your potential. Let it be; trust in your process, allow everything to be okay, as it is.

One day, you’ll look down at your empty chrysalis, in the transcendental bliss of your natural state, flying in pristine skies with fluttering wings; thankful for the struggles you experienced as the caterpillar. My wish is that you all learn to use your wings in this year of 2020; embodying levels of joy, bliss and love you never thought possible. May the love of the source guide you in all you do.
