This book was written during the murky and uncertain period of the coronavirus pandemic. Tomorrow the Russian Federation is going to close its airspace to the world. On March 26th, 2020. This book is an aid and a "how-to deprogram yourself for all global and individual cataclysms, that may happen in our world, and in every family, to a large or to a small degree.
We all know it. And we all repeat it without thinking. But, how do longer term wants and plans fit it? I must admit that I struggled with this concept for a long time. What eventually came to me was that we each wake up in the morning in the present day. Today is ever the present day. Always. Which is why it is so important that as you wake up, you power on your already existing internal strength and repeat: today is a wonderful day for me. It is good. Today brings only great things for me and suits me 100%. Repeat the same thing in the evening while changing day to night in the phrasing. What you will project with this into the universe will reflect back to you. Believe in yourself and your place in the universe.
Anyone that has a pencil can do it. Visualize the world you want. Just like you build it with words and actions, draw it. Drawing talent itself is beside the point here. You can put down some sketchy scribbles and identify them on them bottom with “this is my 50-foot yacht, this is my fixed lower back, this is my vacation home on the beach”. Buy a large sketch pad and in any corner of the sketches identify what it is that you will depict. Again, don’t think too hard here. Just write down what it is and draw it. If you can try to keep at it until all it is that you can picture and want is out of your system. Now, look at it critically. Just a little bit and identify which are the things that resonate with your true inner soul and which you were taught to want by you parents, or any other source other than your true self. You may not know it yourself until you look at what you drew and focus on the things that you are truly drawn to. Repeat this sketching exercise once a month. If you focus on the advice here, you’ll find that more and more of the things you draw will come to appear and so, you’ll need it less and less. Gradually reduce the frequency when you start to notice that you have less and less to draw but never drop it completely. This exercise more than others draws out (yes, this is on purpose) the essential from the inside.
So, you’ve decided to stick to something. Hold on. Meaning, once started, even if things are not going exactly as imagined, keep going. The more things may not go well at first, the more you should hold on to the desired state in your mind. Let your body help you hear. It can get butterflies, with the anticipation of something good, something amazing about to happen. Let it. Just watch your thoughts for doubts. Don’t let them see-saw between “I can make it happen — I can’t make it happen. You can and you will.
Fear is the disconnect between our conscious and subconscious minds. You need to train your brain to trust its darkest, softest, most vulnerable corners of your subconscious. You need to train your subconscious to never hurt your physical self. Think of the quickening heart beat or the shortness of breath of anxiety. This is exactly what we need to prevent. Most of our fears that dwell in the dark, irrational corners of our mind are illusions. They are things we were burnt by and misidentified as the result of the ensuing pain with the trigger event. We’ve all done it. Disconnecting the formed fear pathways will require practice. Some brains need proof. Evidence that others overcame X and are better for it. Our brains are stubborn but will also grasp at straws. So, give it hope. One of my clients confided in me that she had cancer. One of the first stages. I joked with her that doctors do misdiagnose all the time and maybe it is entirely something else, perhaps another type of shellfish. She laughed. But her brain held on to it. A few months later she called to let me know that she had a simple surgery to remove the mass in question and is considered cancer free. Remember, give yourself permission to take the easier way out. Don’t overthink things and don’t overcomplicate them.
Putting reminders at eye level is a very useful practice. But you have to be ready for the long game with it. Write down what you’d like to assimilate or get used to. Example: “My take home after taxes is 8,000 a month.” Or, “I’m finally cured”. Hang whatever it is at eye level. Everywhere in the house. In the hallway, in the bathroom, on the fridge, anywhere where you turn and there is a space where your eyes naturally fall. Pay attention to yourself, you will resist reading or not like to read what you wrote for at least a few months. Gradually you will stop paying attention to it. In about 6 months, you’ll start to read the signs again. Your brain will have gotten used to the only option it has and help with implementation in reality of your wishes. Suddenly. People often call this luck.
