Reclaiming Authenticity: The courage to reclaim that which has always been in you.

No matter who we are, where we were born, and into what family we were placed, ours is a world full of relationships. Indeed, we are social beings who spend our lives making sense of our world by trying to find our place in the world. As social beings, it is often within the context of relationships that we experience tremendous pain and suffering. From overt acts of betrayal and cruelty that someone may have inflicted against us or vice versa, to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, many people bear the scars of physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual wounds. And yet ironically, just as we experience our woundedness in relationships, it is also within the context of healthy relationships that we find our healing and authenticity. The difficulty, then, is often finding the courage to discover that which has always been in you.

For over 25 years, Dr. James Houck has been helping people discover their authentic selves by integrating spirituality into their mental and emotional health. As people are able to integrate these disciplines, they often discover core issues that have been keeping them wounded in relationships.

dr. James Howard
well hello hello hello everybody good afternoon everybody wherever you are at this time it could be morning where you are could be evening but wherever and whatever but welcome to reclaiming authenticity finding one's courage to reclaim that which has always been in you. Cited to be with you here today got a great show plan for you a lot of good hopefully some nights me and I'll just start always like to take things that we are we're always taught or told about ourselves and just are you sure about that and so the show is certainly one of those cases so if I thought I said very happy to be with you here today and each and every Friday at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time noon Pacific Standard Time and each and every week these broadcasts really focus on the integration of our spirituality and our
mental health and I do I put that all within the context of our relationships with ourselves and others are God or the Divine I'm dr. James hauke and if you would like more information about me or to leave me your comments about Today Show and just invite you to visit the website it's forward reclaiming authenticity all one word there and if you would like to call in and be part of the show later that number is 888-627-6008 that's 888-627-6008 I will be taking your calls after the break well before we actually get into the show today I wanted to just remind you that all these broadcasts all these shows are podcasting in case you want to go back and listen again you can go back into the archives and listen to the previous shows that you missed or if for some reason
and you can't stay with me the full hour today feel free to go back in once he shows or uploaded and posted to go back in and listen again I certainly appreciate when people do that and I also wanted to invite you to tune into a special 100th episode Broadcast which is coming up in 2 weeks on Friday June 10th at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time 12 p.m. Pacific Standard Time right here on BBS station one now this is not only going to be my 100th episode it will also Mark the beginning of my third year broadcasting with BBs radio
and I thought about this for a long time and what I wanted to make this broadcast extra special is that I thought would be fun for you the studio audience to pick the topic of discussion on the air that day anything you would like to hear or talk about related to the integration of mental health and spirituality just drop me a few lines reclaiming authenticity well at the beginning of these broadcast I always like to go back and just kind of bring new members do audience members up to speed you know from where I'm coming from in terms of what exactly what is reclaiming authenticity and you've heard me say before those you have been listening you know to me for a while that you know the reclaiming authenticity
pretty much comes from just deep-seated beliefs in myself that all of us come into this world already equipped and graced with everything that we need for this life in terms of what is our giftedness or what is what are our skills what are our talents and strengths and character traits and so forth the very very best part of our self and certainly more than that exactly who we are as Souls because you see it really doesn't matter who we are in terms of where we are born or into what family we were placed we are always going to be in relationships you know cuz our world is just filled with relationships
indeed we are social beings do you know we're just created for that capacity and we often live our lives just try to make sense of our world whether our world is just within our own family or our neighborhood or you know the the town to state that the nation in the world I just tried to find and make sense of our world and we try to find our place in the world and it's also within the context of these relationships that ironically we do experienced a tremendous amount of pain and suffering there is that potential for that at least could be anything from over acts of betrayal and cruelty that somebody has done to us or to be honest with ourselves if we have you know committed those acts of betrayal and cruelty or hurt somebody's feelings or or something or sometimes were simply being
wrong place at the wrong time many many people including ourselves bear the scars of physical psychological emotional and spiritual woundedness but here is the true irony of life that how we often receive our deepest physical emotional psychological and even spiritual wounds in relationship try and the tragedy is that how you know how often do we go along in this life and perhaps due to some unpleasant experiences we tend to hide the very best parts of ourselves and we tend to hide our giftedness or let's say we don't allow others to see our passions or we we we push way way way down inside of us are skills or our own uniqueness now we hide that so others cannot see it you know all because you know we were told that we would never amount to anything or that we're never going to measure up to another person's
or whatever other little voice we heard telling us that there's really nothing special to us
and yet we can discover our greatest healing strength peace forgiveness and love through healthier relationships so it all comes back to our relationships and these relationships just might be within our own families we could be with our co-workers where our friends you know because we are in relationships with others you know and once we are able to find healthy relationships and we find our healing and we're being transformed and are transforming sooner or later we are also going to transform others you know by one degree or another by our presents Grace and understanding we're going to start the deal with ourselves different labor going to start to deal with others differently and so forth and since we are healing and seeing ourselves differently we will inevitably see others differently and treat one another differently but first forgiveness kindness
fashion love understanding begin with how we treat ourselves because whenever we are more compassionate with ourselves we that can be more compassionate with others and when we are forgiving of ourselves well that we find out we could be more forgiving with others and when were able to live in gratitude with ourselves we will then discover how this really opens up our hearts to see and live in gratitude with others so all-in-all transformation begins with us but it radiates out and touches all relationships and so that's what reclaiming authenticity is is all about reclaiming those things that which has always been in us or as Richard Rohr puts it your true self is who you are and always have been in God
well welcome to today's broadcast it's just simply titled from within and without how history repeats itself
well do you have to wonder why you keep making the same mistakes over and over again and I'm right there with you you know we think we've learned the lesson we just stand like here we go again if you do just old pattern seem seem to be popping up all the time I mean we say something hurtful or we do something you know hurtful to another or even we keep falling into the patterns of negative thinking and assumptions about me I'm just going to share just a few of these with you maybe they sound familiar Macy think that well if it happened once it's going to happen again
they were why is everybody so mean to me what did I do
or why do I have such a hard time making and keeping friends or even holding down a job
why do I keep getting myself into such messes why can't I get myself out of the same old troubles and so forth and so forth and so forth
well whether it is a blind spot in our lives or an inability to recognize our old thought patterns or maybe we are unable to learn from our past we do keep making the same mistakes over and over again at this concept is there's nothing new to history I mean this has been going on for a long long time in fact people are often fond of saying a very important quote but have little understanding of the historical context or who set it down through history and it's this the Irish States and he lives somewhere in the middle 817 is often miss quoted as having said those who don't know history are destined to repeat it
and yet the Spanish philosopher George santayana who lived in the late 1800s even into the early 1900's he's credited by saying those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it
the one that I think most people quote the today I should comes from the British Statesman Winston Churchill and he is this very same statement in a 1948 speech when he was in the House of Commons and he says that those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it well you know it's just like okay we get it very powerful lesson right there but what if we flip this perception around just a bit and just for a moment just a moment okay considered the notion that perhaps history is never the part that really repeats itself
because what if every single that's a historical moment is distinct from those that have come before
when it where that is the reputation you know where then is the duplication of the same mistakes and patterns and behaviors coming from
you see maybe it's not history that repeats itself but rather maybe it's the fact that we keep passing down the old perceptions and patterns that keep getting fitted into those circumstances you know if nothing changes it just might be because our responses and reactions are expectations or fears or substance about familiar events those things cause us to repeat our mistakes over and over again
and unless we change from the inside those external realities will continue to manifest our inner reality
this is typically why certain lessons are repeated over and over and over again until we finally learn those lessons and make the necessary changes
well welcome to the law of Correspondence okay I'm not sure if you've ever heard of the law of Correspondence or not but you're the one of the 12 basic or I should say that 12 universal laws that are out there and talk to you or would you even want to Google you know some say there is high is 30 universal laws some say there's no need for something like to meet somewhere in the middle and just consider you know the 12 universal laws and one of the laws is the law of correspondent and basically the law of Correspondence states that what happens around us that well that's a direct reflection of what is happening within us
so you're not another words your internal sense of who you are determines your external environment and how you're feeling is also then what you are manifesting and think of it this way on a on a grander scale know the patterns that repeat throughout the Universe and on a personal level our reality is a mirror of what's Happening inside us at the moment so think of it this way as above so below or as within so without
so an example of this would be that we all know that there is great turmoil and anger and strife in the world today I may just turn on any new station and that's right there by the law of Correspondence would say that this is merely a reflection of what's going on inside of people what's going inside on the in their heart and to be quite honest it doesn't take a rocket science and scientists to understand that people have much turmoil inside themselves today
you know how many people are struggling with anger or their own turmoil or Strife their own disappointment confusion and pain and frustration and betrayal and so on and so forth and how many times is that often manifested out in the world as a result
and so this often ends up being an endless cycle of one feeding the other you know leaving people to question you know what came first was my anxiety or my anger or my contempt or did the hostilities and crime and violence that we hear about on the news every day does that come first
well it's probably a little bit of both but if truth be told I really believe that all problems start from within us and ironically we're compelled to look inward for Solutions because as I said at the beginning of the show I strongly believe that we have come into this world with everything that we need for life in terms of our gifts Grace's talents skills and so forth so if we know where the problem lies
why then do we keep making the same mistakes over and over again and again is it all in our heads
well that's not a bad place to start basically neural Pathways in our brain or created whenever we do something right okay if I do unfortunately I've neural pathway is also created when we do something wrong and so we basically build up habits this way both good and bad guys the positive ones in the negative ones and so you know again some would say that the reason we keep making the same mistakes over and over again is that we slept back in until I got the funk mode into like an old familiar existing neural pathway for pathways
and another way that the maybe look at these neural Pathways is also to you know could be the reason why athletes practice so much but either they're not on a strengthening and training their bodies to perform but also you know they are creating positive neural Pathways by envisioning themselves accomplishing great things on the field or the mat or the court now if you can see yourself being successful then you will achieve it so again as above so below as within so without and I remember reading a story a long long time ago that this is how a Mickey Mantle taught himself to hit various curveballs sliders and breaking balls and so forth he would literally stand
in the batter's box with a bat and he would imagine the pitch coming toward him and he would imagine a fastball and he would swing the ball was coming so he was swinging in there but he would see himself hitting a fastball and then he would see himself hitting a curveball or he would he's here going to see himself hitting a slider or another breaking ball or something
and he was creating those positive neural Pathways is also true when let's say a baseball player gets into a slump and they you know they don't hit or pitch or field well and I could be very frustrating to not only that but also to the team and of course the manager and and everybody else and these players do and have always liked needed to find a way to get out of that slump before personal doubts take over and they have created their own negative neural pathways
so the best way to get out of a slump is to keep on practicing and keep seeing yourself performing well and sooner or later they will actually be doing well and they'll get out of that slump but you know you watch the games this this season you're going to hear the announcer as well so and so is Ben hitless and so many games and they're just seemed to be in a slum they don't stay there they find ways to get out of a slump and so what does that mean for you and for me well quite frankly we need to identify what triggers us you know what other words you know the triggers which make it so easy to slip back into a bad habit even though I told myself I'd never going to do that again
okay well what time when you helped out another person who was in need remember the good feeling you had afterwards I mean even if you spent all day helping others you know you were dead tired and all you could do is you just came home I don't even know if you can go through yourself into a hot tub you just end up sleeping on the couch or whatever you're just dead tired you could still recall feeling good about what you were able to do for other people
that way you already created or maybe Reven reinforced A+ neural pathway for other times too easily follow that so think about when you made a recurring mistake or you hurt another person you know whatever you have said or done you know did create or reinforce a negative neural pathway and the brain and we all have met people who are chronically negative about everything in life even if something good happens to them they're going to find a way to complain about something it's it's almost as if they are incapable of being happy
well that just might be so because consider the negative neural Pathways that they have created in their brain overtime
well you heard me mention this book before which happens to be one of my favorites which is always on my bookshelf and that is the four things that matter the most by Ira byock the four things that matter the most and in this book by author writes about three simple things gratitude forgiveness and love so all by helping people say what they need to say to a dying loved one and this is a time which you have so much you want to say to a person but you don't know where to begin
you just don't know what to say
and so he says if you are
stumbling over your words or you know what you want to say but you don't know how to say it or you don't even know what to say he says begin with these four statements
forgive me
I forgive you
thank you
and I love you
4 easy easy statements one of his quotes from the book is is how forgiveness is a passage to a sanctuary of wholeness that nurturing place where we feel intimately connected to the people who matter the most to us it is a place of healing and transformation because in it he says we feel the perfect full desk of the present
that sounds like creating reinforcing positive neural Pathways to me and whenever we reflect on or say these things to a loved one who's dying we are creating these positive neural Pathways I thought you know what this book is that you know for us not to wait until the ladies let's say final days to say these things to our loved ones but rather what's keeping us from saying these things to each other now
he comes around he says tell the people in your life right now that you love them tell the people right now in your life you forgive them
tell the people right now in your life that you want to be forgiven
and he says in by all means be grateful for the very little things in your life especially things and people that we can so easily overlooked and take for granted
create the best environment for good habits to thrive it by creating and reinforcing positive neural Pathways in the brain
yeah we need to replace or transform you know the psychological emotional and spiritual energy into life-giving energy drink so yeah we can talk about the neurological Pathways but it's let's also bring in the energy which everything is apart of because you know how many times we find ourselves just it's so easy to pick up negative emotional energy in the form of let's say strong feelings of one person's hate or jealousy or Envy or ego but then what are we doing
well imagine sitting with a fire in front of you or maybe beside you know each day we can set Our intention to the send these negative destructive emotions into the fire so that it will be transmitted it out into the universe
but we're not finished at that point now because again you've been listening to me for a while you know that I am very fond of the metaphor of the fact that we live in an echo so whatever we send out eventually returns to us in the same energy unless it has been transformed right as within so without As Above So Below so we do live in an echo
do whatever we send out will come back to us but if we're picking up negative energy from people we have to be able to transform it and so just a very clever way very powerful why I should say to be doing this is signing into a fire and allow the fire to carry that negative emotional energy or spiritual energy or whatever negativity it might be out into the universe and imagine it being transformed but
it has to be sent back to us as well so let's say we get out of here around a person who's just you know a lot of bitterness and to the toxicity in terms of their negativity and we just we feel like we picked that up somewhere somehow we just come home and we feel drained by it well as we send that into the fire you know when we allow the universe to transform it you know ask that it comes back in the form of a blessing or ask that it be coming back as you know I'm just very positive wonderful Joy or peace or positive energy in some way
again you know this is the general principle of let's say karma or word is reaping what we sow or what goes around comes around anything that comes from us goes out
but it also returns to us
so we must transform any kind of negative energy that we experienced in the form of these psychological emotional physical and spiritual wounds and we know that we can hold stress and tension even trauma in the body the mind the emotions in the spirit even down to that cellular level because cell memory holds all of our experiences so that when something reminds us of an experience that was let's say beautiful or Pleasant or horrific or traumatic
we can be pulled back into those experiences at any given moment
so to transform the negative energy we may be experiencing we first must become aware that we just might be holding on to it even if we are unwilling
I love to hear what's on your heart about this subject so again if you like to call Lynn I invite you to by calling the toll-free number 888-627-6008 that's 888-627-6008 and I'll be taking your calls after the break again you are listening to reclaiming authenticity and I'm your host dr. James he'll be back with you in 1 minute
alright welcome back I am dr. James how can you are listening to reclaiming authenticity as I mentioned earlier in the show these broadcasts are podcast it now in case you want to go back and listen again or if you can't be with me the full hour to go back into the archives and listen to the previous shows just visit the website ww.w. BBS forward reclaiming authenticity and I also just want to remind you again that the tune into a special 100 episode Broadcast that's coming up in three weeks on Friday June 10th 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time noon Pacific Standard Time right here on BTS Radio. Calm station one and this is not only going to be my 100th episode it's also going to Mark the beginning of my third year broadcasting with BBs radio and what will make this broadcast extra special
I would like you to pick the topic for me to discuss on the air that day you would like to hear or talk about related to the integration of mental health and spirituality and so just drop me a few lines just drop me an e-mail right at ww.w. BBS forward slash reclaiming authenticity
well whether it is a blind spot in our lives or an inability to recognize our old thought patterns or run able to learn from our past we do keep making the same mistakes over and over again, and so I said this concept is nothing new to history because we have quotes out there like this that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it
and you know I keep sitting with that that statement and it's a powerful statement because it is true it's just the one that explains why history repeats itself but is it really history
because what if we flip this perception around a bit and just for a moment consider the notion that perhaps history is never the part that repeats itself
what if every single historical moment OK Google separate and distinct from what has happened before so where then is the repetition
where then is the duplication of the same mistakes in the patterns of behavior where they coming from
play Maybe It's not that history repeats itself but rather maybe it is the fact that we keep passing down those old perceptions and patterns that have not changed
you know just those weighs about us but we say well that's just the way the world is and so we just have to keep doing and what are you going to do or maybe we kick the can so to speak down the road to the Next Generation and the old mentalities of the old perceptions or the old patterns and old playbooks just keep getting fitted into new circumstance
as if nothing changes it just might be because our responses reactions and expectations and fears and assumptions about Familiar of meds what that those things cause us to repeat our mistakes over and over again
folks unless we change from the inside
those external realities out there those historical events such as those things that the we point to in the world and just say what a mess those external realities will continue to manifest or mirror our inner reality
this is typically wide lessons are repeated over and over again until we learn those lessons and this is basically the law of Correspondence so they shared a little bit before the break but you know the law of corresponding states that pretty much what happens around us is a direct reflection of what's happening within us
well if you remember your days in school okay if I come straight class and you know you know that physical Alchemy was and is concerned with altering and transforming chemical properties within solid matter in a good example of this is changing lead into gold okay but spiritual Alchemy is concerned with freeing our let's say our vast spiritual self
which is being hindered you know in Us by those unrefined parts of ourselves those things such as our fears or limited personal beliefs or feelings of self-loathing or maladaptive behaviors or cognitive distortions you see those two things that really need to change the transform within us if we expect the external reality to change and spiritual Alchemy is vastly more multifaceted it's fluid its ongoing it's that's like I was liking it to a continuous purification of our hearts in a much in the same way that you do and I am Smith will turn up the heat but ain't a hopper that contains rum mineral or metal
has the heat is increased the dross or impurities come to the surface only to be skimmed off and making the metal pure than what it was before then this process is repeated over and over again and again until the metal reaches its finest. E that it can be
so we two are going through a process of spiritual Alchemy of authenticity shopping site that is a call and urging to move into higher dimensions of our authentic selves because how often does it feel like the heat is being turned up through let's say past and current events throughout the world and therefore when going through the process of the Saying A Spiritual Awakening sooner or later we are confronted with the fact that there seems so much more to ourselves than the reality we are living at and what we have grown accustomed to
but still we may find ourselves struggling with how we are triggered by certain events in the world and yet at the same time you know we want to have a more intentional progression in our spirituality we want to find the courage to let go of all the non-life giving perceptions and experiences in order to embrace more of our higher Dimension more of our authentic selves and we just want to have a desire to live exclusively from a Hearts pain that radiates pure light and unconditional love
and ironically this going to be a very unnerving state or place that we find ourselves in you know especially if you know what kind of time I should we feel like all we have known is starting to crumble and evaporate around us and we can become so unsure of not only ourselves but also whether or not if all that we see is all that there is
is the external world really reflecting what's going on inside of us absolutely
and yet
it's we who can weather those storms and when we do that we may also discover that something greater than ourselves is tugging at our soul
call it a stronger nod nudge from God or a more intense dimensional energy
or even a hunger that resonates deep within by compelling us to go and search and discover the vastness of who we truly are
and as we go on this journey we may discover that there are things we need to let go of the things that we identity and I need to identify or things that we need to transform in order to embrace hire more Nina intense dimensions and other words we can rise above those negative mental emotional physical and spiritual triggers that keep us from experience the fullness of unconditional love in this world
so what do we do when the let's say the universe begins to turn up the heat on this purification process
what do we do once we are aware that okay this feels like I'm being tested feels like I'm being tried
well I have a Lakota friend of mine who explained to me one day that when we are tested and tried let's say by the fire of the universe he says it's it's God's way to see if we are real in our are we committed are we serious and our intentions to seek God for all the right reasons
and this is why he says the fire of image is so often used in this purification process because fire is transformative
it changes would into gas dust smoke and eventually returns to us in the form of rain snow and a x ice
so he says once we become aware of this process he says all we need to do is surrender to it
because who do you think
those Desires in our hearts begin with
yes God meets us exactly where we are but God also wants us to come to higher dimensions of our self-awareness and as a result he transforms us a lower vibrational thinking that when this occurs I always say fasten that seat belt and hang on
how do you say spiritual Alchemy is both transforming and transcending it's transforming in that we are going to be changed and we are going to be changing others through the fact that we are different and how we deal with ourselves is going to be a direct relation of how we deal with others again as within so without
and spiritual Alchemy is also transcending it's going to pull us out of our comfort zones it's going to pull us into places that we never thought we would be not just physical places but I mean spiritual places and emotional places and psychological places you know it's just going to it's going to move us into new areas because we're ready
so yes spiritual Alchemy is both transforming and transcending
well in the book The Alchemist another favorite book of mine the main character Santiago is having a discussion with his heart one evening as he's trying to come to terms with the fears that he feels so deeply and he talks with his heart but he listens to the heart and he says that I heard my heart say
the people are afraid to pursue their most important dreams because they feel like they don't deserve them or that they will be unable to achieve them
but we either hearts become fearful just thinking of loved ones who go away forever or of moments that could have been good but weren't aware of treasures that might have been found but we're forever hidden in the sands
or let's put it another way here what is it that dies inside the people while they live
they're certainly things that are very precious and us that we cannot afford to Let Die
hope peace forgiveness compassion love Grace understanding and so forth
but how often as we are living or dying inside and letting those most precious things
so apart from creating and reinforcing the positive neural Pathways in order to stop us from making the same mistakes over and over again on a cellular level
we already know that meditation decreases blood pressure and it lowers heart rate at did you know blowers respiration helps us sleep more soundly releases a bunch of little endorphins you know just coursing through the bloodstream and releases more oxytocin and just all wonderful neurotransmitters well interesting Lee enough research in the area of near-death experiences have shown to affect people in terms of this emotional psychological physical even a spiritual shall we say a benign virus that they have such a radical shift in their awareness desires Etc but they are never the same as a result of coming back what they have seen what they have experienced and so forth
but what is the shift that occurs in us moving from let's say carbon energy to more crystalline energy
if it involves releasing of I needed energies and replacing them with higher vibrations of love and light and how we do this is through forgiveness how we do this is through gratitude
coming back to buy Ox book here what are the four things that you need to say to the loved ones who are living today
forgive me
I forgive you
thank you
I love you
talk about creating positive neural Pathways at also releases just a whole lot of stagnant negative energy and replaces it with the higher vibrations of love and light and understanding
well as a society we already know that sell memory occurs when we hold trauma in the body and how it can change ourselves we can change our genes and and this is what the study of epigenetics is all about and the studies that came out of the traumatic experiences of World War II other atrocities we're by the trauma was for lack of a better word stamp on people's DNA to Future generations and this is where the studies of intergenerational trauma came from or even complex trauma and when we shift into this higher Consciousness or vibration you know that to creates a change in our DNA and we can break up the trauma that has altered the jeans
same thing is true with our Mental Health
name the other that there is such a thing as crystallized intelligence which encompasses everything we have learned and experiences and what we have heard or tasted the Motions we have felt and all of these experiences are held in this crystallized intelligence which has been shown to become stronger and resilient overtime
and another way in which we can shift into a higher vibrational Consciousness is also listening to the wisdom of those who have gone before us or those who have experienced much in this life
because within those experiences, I'm very precious wisdom teachings that we need to integrate into our lives
but even within something so strong as our crystallized intelligence there are unhealthy patterns of behaviors and distorted perspectives that need to be dissolved and released as well I mean you're never too old to experience of radical shift in your vibrational awareness of your true vast self and these vibrational shifts certainly show themselves in and through relationships
you know more people become a more loving more patient more forgiving with ourselves and with others
as we are ascending in our awareness shall we seek it also affects us physically but whenever we look to taking care of the the physical needs of another it always has a spiritual effect or Awakening in the other person on some level in other words the soul is touched trip to and as we begin this process of higher dimensional relationship with God we are going to be reminded of all the negative psychological emotional and spiritual patterns within our relationships that keep us stuck in the past going to keep us from making the same mistakes you know that or rush it say it's going to allow us to make those same mistakes over and over and over again
I know it's a daily surrender or shall we say say yes to being led by our Soul's desires that keep us connected with God and the universe so we let go of the former in or does it take on more Life Giving by changing the energy of those things again as within so without
we like to go more easily because we're no longer controlled by fear but compelled out of everlasting love and grace share with you the metaphor of the fire transformation and as we sit with ourselves and negative thoughts or emotions as those things come up to our awareness week and send that energy into the fire and yeah we can ask for the negative energy to be transformed into gifts that honor and sustain the mental emotional physical and spiritual body and heighten our awareness and vibration of our higher selves
and in doing so over time we discover that you know we no longer wish to find peace or find Grace or show me the love but rather we are the ones who are the peace Grace and love and we will give off that powerful vibration that that sense of being Nest that generates powerful energy field word vibrant are others can tell this about us even before we speak we know we no longer have to worry about what we're going to say in any given situation we can simply be
and we find ourselves being fully present with ourselves and others as well as you know begin to experience God in the most unlikely places through the most unlikely people which is actually where God has been found all along
well we can certainly grow in our understanding of who we are and we can experience the presence of God each day but just how we connect with God how do we maintain that
life T-shirt with you more than one occasion about just how much a special place that India is for me it's actually not a place like considering it's rather a state of being at the state of awareness we often hear people talk about angels and sometimes you know people might say well they well if you do something out of the ordinary you're having an audible visual or tactile hallucinations and Science and spirituality Savoy's parted ways for the longest time with you with intergenerational trauma
and yet we can hear the cries of our ancestors another's who are stuck in that negative energy and mindset about the past but there's also a fifth dimensional energy energy that heals restores a place where there is no fear but it also places a tremendous amount of responsibility on people in this Dimension because it's not meant to be hoarded it's not meant to be hidden it's intended to be shared and blessed and gifted for others
so if you want to change your mind and stop manifesting negativity in your life as well as moving into a higher spiritual Dimension relationship with God yourself and others focus on forgiveness gratitude and love and bring those things into your heart
cuz as we heal and move out of Arlington this we catch glimpses of being pulled into shall we say a nonlinear awareness of Who We Are
and with each new day it creates its own wonderful wonderful living experiences
higher dimensions of our awareness awareness with God in the universe allows us to live in the pure light of unconditional love knowing that we all are connected We Are One our relationships are Limitless no longer perceived as being bound by time or space
living in higher dimension of our awareness also means that we live from our hearts we connect through our hearts and we can feel the connection unloved instantly and through this we can discover and ReDiscover our true creative power
and all experiences then are embraced with gratitude as the soul knows that everything has its purpose for our growth and expansion of consciousness the key is to remain teachable and aware at all times
