How To Change

We know that if we change our thinking, we change our life.  But therein lies the rub.  How do we go about changing our thinking?  Research tells us that 95% of the thoughts that we had yesterday are the same thoughts that we will have today.  Our minds and bodies prefer the familiar patterns that we have grown accustomed to.  This holds true even in the case of difficult patterns like accepting neglect or abuse.  It generally takes something big to wake us up to change.

Most of the people, who successfully make changes in their lives, have experienced something fairly major like a bad diagnosis or the death of a friend.  These big emotional experiences open our eyes wide, so we can freshly see who we have been and who we have become.  This is when we suddenly find ourselves free to choose differently.  We see where the old thought patterns have taken us and we decide that we don't prefer that version of our reality anymore.

For me, it was three major injuries back to back, requiring two separate years spent in bed and ten consecutive years focused on healing my body.  There is a saying that I love about how God helps us to change.  It is this, "First she throws a pebble, then she throws a brick."  Some of us, myself included have required the brick in order to bring about change.  How much nicer it would be to respond to the pebble.  A much gentler course indeed. 

So, how do we initiate that more gentle 'wake-up call?'  Fortunately it is fairly simple.  One of the traits of successful change is to become more conscious, more present-moment focused, more active in the right hemisphere of our brain.  Another way that we can help ourselves to change our thinking is through knowledge and understanding.  The more we know about our new potential way of being, the more we can embrace it. 

While it is true that trauma can catapult us into these types of changes quickly, we can also bring about quick personal changes in these more gentle ways.  As we increase our knowledge and understanding we see why we'd like to change.  Keep that new information flowing; read books on the subject; notice how other people do it.  Spend more time around those who focus there, where you want to be.  Infuse your awareness with the positive emotions associated with the changes you are choosing in the present moment.  Let those emotions be big.  Bigger than the brick.  Soon this will become the new habit, and the old familiar patterns simply fall away.   

Fortunately our habit minds, our sub-conscious minds, reason logically and follow orders from our conscious mind.  This is why intention plus attention brings manifestation.  We grab the meaning behind our will to change, which is our intention and then give it our full attention by staying in the present moment with it.  We focus on it.  We watch how other people do it.  We gather new and novel approaches to solving the problems of our lives and that holds our energy to the changes that we wish to make.  

In my mother's day, people would tie a string around their finger, as a reminder for themselves. That little string would constantly get their attention and help them to remember.  In this case, we might use that little trick to help us remember how and what we want to think.

And then, just like me, injured for those many years, we need something that helps us to drop our former sense of self, our belief in who we are and who we have been.  This can happen when we go away on a new vacation or an adventure.  Another way that we can help ourselves to embrace our new changes is through meditation, especially if we do this in the early morning while we are first waking up, or at night, just before we fall sleep.  As we infuse our our bodies and minds with the emotions of the new desired state of being, then the reality of it quite naturally follows.

I'll leave you with this little affirmation that I learned during the time while I was gaining knowledge for change.  It helped me to catch myself and stay in the present moment in order to embrace the new.  I would say this to myself whenever my old thought patterns would try to assert themselves.  It is a very polite and loving affirmation.  And it is addressed to the dutiful habit mind which is still trying to hold onto the old thought patterns.  It goes like this, "Thank you for sharing.  You used to serve me well, but you no longer serve me now.  I now choose differently and reap the rewards of those new positive changes in my life,"  Then give yourself a big smile and feel how good it feels.  

Bless you on your journey of gentle change into a healthier and more joyous life.

The Amazing Gift That Our Awareness Brings

There was a study done in the South with Hotel maids that Dr. Joe Dispenza refers to in his talks.  He is the one who has done so much work on the placebo effect and how our beliefs affect our reality.  In this study, the hotel maids were divided into two groups.  One group was given information and the other group was not.

Hotel maids get a lot of exercise all day long.  They are bending and stooping, scrubbing floors and flipping mattresses.  They haul heavy bundles, using their muscles and burning lots of calories.  Hotel maids typically burn more calories than they eat, and they often exceed the surgeon general's recommendation for exercise.  

The benefits of ample exercise are numerous.  The body becomes more trim, excess pounds melt away, waist lines get slimmer, and self esteem rises.  The first group of hotel maids in the study was given this information about the benefits that lots of exercise brings and they were told about the science behind these findings.  They were given the knowledge.  The second group was not told.  For them it was just business as usual.

After one month, just thirty days, the maids in the first group showed a marked increase in all of the benefits.  They lost weight, their waists were smaller and they felt better about themselves.  The second group, performing all of the same tasks as the first group, experienced no change.

Knowledge, and the awareness of it, is amazing.  The understanding of how exercise positively affects one's health, that knowledge, was the only difference between the two groups of hotel maids.  The more we understand something, the more we can  create a better experience and see positive results.

Back in 1930's, during the Great Depression, my husband's father was trying to get a job.  He got into a long line of men who were applying for a position as a metal spinner.  This kind of work requires upper body coordination and while he waited, he watched.  The stance, the pressure, the steadiness, all made the difference between a good outcome or a bad one.  By the time it was his turn he had a pretty good understanding of what was needed.  He did the trial, performed it well and got the job.  

If we watch carefully and pay attention to how something is done, we get better at it.  But if we don't give it our full attention and just muddle through fairly unconsciously, we won't see much improvement.  'The same old' approach yields 'the same old' results. Whereas, the more aware we are, using our five senses while being consciously present, actually staying in the present moment, the more knowledge we gain.  And as we better understand what we are doing, with purpose behind it, then we see good positive outcomes.

This process of engaging our awareness takes us out of what is familiar and into what is new.  And therein lies the mechanics for making desired changes in our lives.  We leave behind the same old familiar routines that made us feel stuck and embrace the new by gaining knowledge either through education or through our five senses.  Then by staying present or aware of the new knowledge, we make changes for the better.  And that is the amazing gift that our awareness brings to us.
