How to Gain Freedom By Listening to Your Cut Finger

  You know that your beliefs create your expectations, which tell the quantum field what to form in your material reality.

Denial Isn’t a River in Egypt

But being in denial about your feelings and beliefs, pretending they’re something other than what they really are, can actually get you in a lot of trouble with the architecture paradigm.  Don’t ever pretend you feel better than you do or believe something more positive than you do; positive affirmations and statements, positive intentions, and desires for positive outcomes do not always equate with your true beliefs.

Since the quantum field is responding to your true beliefs (and not your surface-level desires) when it manifests your physical reality, you can often fool yourself into thinking you have positive beliefs about something when you really don’t.  So it is very important to acknowledge your feelings and beliefs, just where they are currently, as you also learn not to personalize them.

Practice Makes Perfect

Your beliefs, after all, are only your most practiced, habitual thoughts.  Certainly your beliefs feel 100% true to you; after all, your beliefs were not only bestowed to you by people and groups you trusted and/or allowed to influence you, but also you are intimately familiar with them since you have held them and invested yourself in them for such a long time.

And like your beliefs, your feelings, while very real to you, are not “facts”.  Your feelings are merely your physical responses to one simple criterion: how closely (or how far apart) your current beliefs are matched up with your dreams and desires.  Your feelings, like your beliefs, are true for you (and you alone) and, because of that, shouldn’t be discounted nor denied.  Yet it’s also very important to recognize that your feelings are simply emotional feedback for how closely your beliefs are currently aligning with your aspirations for yourself in this moment.

You are Not Your Cut Finger

As you practice objectifying your beliefs and feelings, by seeing them this way rather than personifying them as you have most likely spent your life doing, you will gain freedom from the power they currently have over your state of being.  And you will gain the freedom to examine them without so much emotional investment.  When you cut your finger, after all, you don’t say, “I am now a sliced, physically imperfect human being”, do you?  You simply say, “I currently have a cut on my finger (but my current state of having a cut is not who I am).”

Similarly, when you have a feeling, like sadness, you are not required to say, “I am sad”.  You can, instead, now say, “I am experiencing sadness in this moment (but sadness is not who I am).”  That second statement still acknowledges your feeling – you’re not in denial nor are you pretending you don’t feel sad.  However, the second statement makes it very clear that you are not your feelings; you are merely experiencing a feeling.  And that distinction, as you’ve learned, makes a world of difference.

How Can A Fish Can Teach You About Changing Why You Do Things the Way You Do Them?

  The following is an excerpt from my new book, which I plan to publish in early 2013:

One way I’ve found helpful to envision a paradigm is as a fish tank.  And within this fish tank you are the fish.   Of course, an actual fish would not only have no cause to reflect on why she is in her particular fish tank, but she would also have no ability to do so.  Unless this fish was a character from the Disney movie, Finding Nemo.

But just as paradigms do for you, all the reasons why a fish does the things the way she does them is governed and dictated by the unique fish tank in which she lives.  Why does she swim in the particular routine she always does?  Why does she sleep where and when she does?  Why does she eat where and when she does?  The unique fish tank she inhabits is the reason.

The fish tank in our metaphor is the home to a little fish named Splash, who has a burning desire to become a powerful deep-ocean swimmer.  Given her dream, Splash investigates what she’ll need to do to reform herself and her swimming abilities to achieve her goals.  Splash finds a great book full of expert instruction, written by a champion tuna living in the Atlantic Ocean.  The tuna’s workout program provides Splash with step-by-step instructions which, when followed faithfully, promise to transform any fish into an open-ocean powerhouse.

After a restful night’s sleep, Splash jumps out of her bed because she is so excited to begin the program.  Already brimming with desire to achieve her dreams, Splash bubbles with anticipation because she not only has the willingness to work hard, but now she also has the expert instruction she needs to reach her goal.

But after following the tuna’s program for a month, Splash has only made minor progress toward her goal.  She has worked diligently every day, following all the instructions to the letter, and her intense desire to achieve her goal has never wavered.  Yet she has failed to reach her intended outcome; Splash is still the same little swimmer she was when she started.  In despair, Splash gives up and, with a tear, sadly declares to herself, “I guess I’m just not cut out to be a deep-sea swimmer.”

Splash tries to move on with her life, resigned to her fate.  But, as is usually the case with our deep desires, Splash is never really able to say goodbye to her dreams; no matter how much she tells herself that deep-sea swimming is not her “destiny”, that dream remains.  So when Splash happens across another program, written by a famous porpoise, a month later, she gets excited and rekindles her resolve to achieve her goal.  “I must have had the wrong book last time,” Splash enthusiastically tells herself after reading through the porpoise’s program.

Splash does exactly the same thing this time as the last; powered by her renewed excitement and feverish desire, she once again works diligently each day, follows every one of the porpoise’s instructions exactly, and never doubts that she will reach her goal.  Yet, once again, after a month and a half this time, Splash is forced to accept that she has failed again.  Notice that she now feels like a failure; she’s not just sad, she’s now blaming herself.  And she doesn’t just suffer tears this time.  Splash spends two days holed up in the corner of her fish tank soothing her wounded psyche with chocolate ice cream.

Why Your Constant Weight Loss Actions are Actually Keeping You Heavy

  The second new paradigm necessary for your weight loss efforts to actually work like you hoped (and you were promised) is the energy paradigm.

The paradigm that the energy one replaces (from the old science) is the action paradigm.

Accomplish More By “Doing” Less?  What a Concept!

The old science said that action was the most important agent for change in our universe.  And the world took notice; the action paradigm arose and took very firm root in every aspect of the industrialized world.

Let’s look at modern weight loss, through the action paradigm.

  • Aren’t you told that if you have unwanted weight, the most important thing to do is take action?  Change your diet, start different exercises, avoid certain foods, eat more of certain foods, etc.?
  • Aren’t you taught that taking those recommended actions will result in predictable outcomes?  Such as losing a certain amount of weight in a certain time-frame?
  • Haven’t you also been told that, if you have unwanted weight, you can trace your weight problem backwards to reveal the specific actions which caused it?  For example: your upbringing probably created emotional baggage which now creates a state of mind where you uncomfortably weigh more than you’d like.

You don’t need me to tell you that the action paradigm is too limited to help you with your weight loss efforts.  You already know that the actions prescribed by weight loss “gurus” have not worked out for you as promised.  And you intuitively understand that your state of mind is too context dependent to be pinned to any specific actions which occurred in your past.

Wait a Minute?  Diet and Exercise Aren’t Important if I Want to Lose Unwanted Weight? Well…Not 100% True, But I’m Glad You Asked!

This is not to say that changing the foods you eat and exercising are bad things; those are very good things to do if you want to lose weight.  And this is not to say that events from your past can’t have an effect upon you today; our experiences reveal that this can certainly be the case sometimes.

But it is certainly true that the action paradigm has not allowed you to effectively enact weight loss programs.  And the reason for this is that the action paradigm is not an accurate description of how the universe really operates!  While containing some elementary truths, this paradigm is far too limited to rely upon as heavily (pun intended) as we have been taught.

The more accurate (and proper) paradigm for you to hold is the energy paradigm.  Just as with the holism paradigm, all you will need to do is follow the same good instructions for weight loss – the difference is that they will actually work this time (and even better than you were ever promised)!

In my next entry, I’ll begin to explain the energy paradigm.  Stay tuned…
