Getting to the “Energetic Root of Dis-ease”

Pablo credit

You have probably heard me say often:  “Our health is a reflection of what we eat and “think”.  Most importantly what we think.   This is the topic of the “2nd Missing Link to Abundant and Sustainable Health” in the Evolution of Free Health book series I keep threatening to publish (still in progress).   I will probably have it all shared piecemeal before in is actually bound in a book!

We now know everything is energy; the physical body…even a rock.   The vibration of the energy determines the denseness of it.  For instance, the energy of health is much lighter than the energy of illness.  It is easy to feel that.

The most powerful energy of all is the “energy of the mind”.   The thought is the first step in the creative process of bringing the unseen into our physical reality.   A prescription drug doesn’t get approved by the FDA until it proves it “can” be more effective than the mind (placebo effect).

Nothing was ever created that wasn’t thought of first.  Born of a Source Creator, we are creators.   What we create is our individual and collective experience.  We are one with all of creation and our creations affect the whole.  If we want to change the world we must start changing our own experience…first.

We create matter (our physical experience) by what “matters” to us; it is where we direct our focus.  What matters may be very unconscious.  For instance; being right may really matter to us even if we are not aware of it.  

We are always creating consciously or unconsciously.  What we focus on determines how we feel.  These feelings are powerful rocket fuel for our creations.  What we cannot see but only feel is the energy of our emotions, but like the wind and electricity we can certainly see the effects of them in our life.  They drag us around through one trauma/drama after another until we realize they are bringing amazing wisdom and contrary to what we may have been taught, they CAN be trusted.

Chronic pain or chronic illness is the body’s “physical” response to an energetic cause.

Emotions follow thoughts, not the other way around.   Our emotions are the very barometer that measures the quality of our thoughts and creations.   If our thoughts are happy and lovely, then we feel happy and lovely.  If our thoughts are stressful and full of fear then we feel fearful and stressed out. 


By learning to feel our emotions (something for many, were not allowed to do as a child), it is easy to gage where our thoughts are.  Our body gives us huge clues if we will only pay attention. 

Our body expands with happy thoughts.  We can breathe deep.  We can relax.   Angry or fearful thoughts constrict the body.  You may not be able to take a deep breathe or your belly may be in knots.   I realized through my work that many have been constricted for so long they have forgotten how to breathe.  Watch a baby breath and follow their lead.   It may take a little practice if it has been awhile since you took a real deep belly breath.  The skin on my scalp gets tight when I start to get aggravated (it contracts).

So how do we change our thinking so we can feel more happy and less stressed? We must first become aware of our thoughts if we ever have a chance of changing them.  Depression (strong emotional pain) is a strong indicator that it is time to bring the thoughts running in the background that are running the show into the foreground; into the light of consciousness. 

The hard knock of depression can be very painful.   We may try to cover up the pain with pain-numbing drugs (legal or not and sometimes necessary in extreme circumstances).  However, if we want to be happy and healthy, we must eventually open the door to the beliefs that are running us. 

Depression was the “near death experience” that led me to an awakening.   I was suicidal.   What does “awaken” mean?  It means to become aware.  Aware of my thoughts.  It meant leaving behind much of what I had learned to be and becoming aware of who I am; a Child of God…unlimited in nature.   My awakening experience led me to the realization that all life experiences are uncovering our Truth and leading us into freedom. 

“Life is a Revelation.  We are being revealed along the way”. 


What is running in the background of our (subconscious) is our early programming.  What we’ve learned from our experience in the womb, through birth and our early years.  We have formed beliefs even before we had words for them…for instance; many learn what love isn’t if they grew up without a good mirror reflecting what love is.   With the understanding of a child we form our belief system and then we defend it with our life…literally.   Our life experiences are a reflection of what we believe about life and love.

I’ve come to realize from working with hundreds that one particular early event is “a catalyst to awakening”.  When this event (long buried and forgotten) is brought into the light, a new understanding dawns.  It is easy to see the patterns in life; the habits, the chronic thoughts all based on a story created in a mind of a child that was never true.  With this new understanding comes compassion and forgiveness for ourselves and others as we begin to understand that everyone is reacting from learned experiences and doing the best they can with what they’ve learned.

We all want to be happy, healthy, prosperous and abundant (it’s our divine right), but for many, unconscious thinking opposes conscious intention.  If you grew to believe you are “not enough” you will create lack.   If you believe deep down you are “unlovable” you will create circumstances to prove it.   It is very easy to fall into the trap that we are just a victim of circumstance with no power to change unless we uncover the thoughts opposing our good.

The good news…we have the ability to bring into the light what is not serving our good and create a reality that does.   If we can create what we don’t want, we can just as easily create what we do.

A process for bringing into the light what is ready to be seen was revealed to me a few years ago.  It is the process I use for myself and clients when an emotional trigger is tripped.  

Every time we have an experience that goes against an underlying belief it creates friction and triggers an emotion.  It is the same emotion that was initially produced with the event that created it as a child.

The people that get on our “ever-last nerve” or “push or buttons” or the situations that inexplicably drive us crazy are all shining a light on an underlying belief (a judgement).  If you are the one being tweaked then the one doing the tweaking is doing you a favor.  You have been given an opportunity to look within and undercover the sore spot and heal it.  The belief is always based in a judgment of self.

The most common belief, “I’m unworthy” (of happiness, success, love, abundance, etc.).   We may resist doing this detective work for a bit or a long while (I can attest!), but we will not find peace until we answer the knock.  This journal is a tool for opening and healing our hurts.


This “Emotional Thought Journal” will:

  1.  Help you identify chronic negative thoughts.  For example, the “I can’t” and “I’m not” thoughts; “I can’t afford…”. “I’m not smart enough…”.   Just like chronic illness these chronic thoughts are knocking hard on your door of awareness.  This process will help you open the door.
  2. Give you a safe space to allow your inner child to speak and feel without fear of judgment.  Many have learned as children that showing emotions was not a good idea.  Were you ever told as a child, “Big boys don’t cry” or “Stop crying before I give you something to cry about”?  You may have pushed emotions down deep.
  3. Help you gain compassion for yourself and others knowing you have done the best you can with what you were given (learned) and so has everyone else.  Remember, “Hurt people – hurt people”.


Here is how the process works:  
Get a journal that is convenient to have with you at all times.  For men, this may mean one you can keep in your pocket.

On the front cover write:

Dear Thoughts and Emotions,
“I see you.”
“I feel you.”
“I honor you.”
“I love you”
You have my undivided attention.


Now that you have created the framework and are willing, you will become more aware of your thoughts.  I promise.  Pay attention to the chronic ones and the emotions they create.  These are the ones you are going on a date with. 

Try to define the emotion the thought is creating rather than generalizing.  For instance, instead of calling it anger or stress, go deeper.  How do you realy feel? Disappointed? Resentful? Jealous? Envious? Or, overwhelmed?  You get the idea.  You may not be in a position to dig into this in the moment.  That’s okay.  Just move to the next step…

Open the journal and enter a date and time when the thought and emotion came up.  What event triggered it?  Whisper a “thank you” to the person or event for the opportunity to heal.   Make a date with it.  Be sure you set the date where you can give at least 10 minutes of your undivided, uninterrupted attention to this part of you that wants to speak….alone.

You will notice much to your pleasant surprise, the thought will now leave you alone.  It has been acknowledged and honored.  If you break your date you will be reminded again.

When you meet with your date, take a few deep clearing breathes and settle into your heart space, just  like you would for prayer or meditation and say out loud:

“You have my undivided attention.  I am listening with open ears, an open mind and an open heart.  Tell me a story…”

Take another deep clearing breath and wait patiently and quietly.  Allow whatever comes up.  The child may judge his or herself however you are just a willing observer.  You’re only job is to listen and feel deeply.  You may want to cry…then cry.  You may want to kick and scream…then do it.  You may want to make sure you are very alone for this so you do not feel any hesitation.

When you feel spent and empty (like after a good cry) you are done with the session and may be done period.  This may talk longer than 10 minutes.  Just feeling the feeling may be all that is needed to heal this sore spot or there may be more…

Note:  It may take several dates before your inner child feels safe enough to speak.  Don’t push.  If you begin to feel frustrated or impatient, it is time to stop.  Trust will develop as you continue the dates.

You will know when all is forgiven and healed.  The trigger will be deactivated.  The button is no longer pushed.  You may have the random thought, but it will not hold the same charge.

I hope you find this helpful.  If you have any questions or I can help in any way, please reach out.

In love and gratitude,

Gail

Could LOVE be the cure for Narcissism?

https://pablo.buffer.com/

If you have an ego, you are a narcissist.  Healthy narcissism helps us create a sense of self and belonging imperative in navigating this earthly experience.  Just like childhood diseases help build our immune system, healthy narcissism protects our self-worth by building immunity to the judgements the world throws at us that might otherwise bury us.  

When does healthy narcissism cease to be healthy?  When one becomes so self-absorbed they cannot see or understand the needs of others.  The whole world revolves around their wants and needs.  Or, one becomes so tired and defeated from trying to prove their worth, they retreat from the world; shut down and sink into depression.

How does this happen?  Innocently, most of the time.  What we believe about how the world operates and what love looks like happens before we are six.  Most parents, teachers, authority figures have a very pure intention of bolstering self-esteem in children to help them succeed.  And, can unwittingly foster a false belief that their actions can make them more lovable or unlovable.  Obviously, this doesn’t happen to every child and I’m not sure we understand why some develop problems and others don’t. 

I do know that we all have a journey and what we came to experience, we will.  So, on a “Higher Level” everything in our life is working for our Good and leading us to our Truth (Love) even if we do not see it for long time, if ever in this lifetime.

On a third dimensional level however (the world level), the child may come to believe that he or she is only lovable if they are doing the right thing and that there may even be a limit to love.  The child may grow to believe that are totally unlovable.  They may be unable to give or receive love.   They may come to believe  they can never do anything right enough or good enough to deserve love.

When we form our belief systems (as a child), we defend them with our very life.  We create our life circumstances to prove we are right.  “I must be unlovable, people always leave me.”  “See, he left…I don’t deserve to be loved.” “I cannot do anything right because,  I’m not good enough. I might as well quit trying.”  Or, one may over-compensate to hide their perceived sense of unworthiness with an inflated ego…everything revolves around them.

In extreme cases it is easy to see this scenario taking place.  For instance, a parent may even disown a child for not living up to their standards.  But, most of the time we are just doing the best we can with our children  with what we’ve be taught based on our  own experience as children.  Most of us never knowingly hurt any of our children and there is no question that we love them unconditionally.

So what do we do now if we recognize that we unwittingly gave our children the wrong impression of what love is?  Or, we are living with or in close proximity to a full blown narcissist that is creating chaos?

It’s simple.  I’m reminded of an Einstein quote, “If the answer is simple, God is speaking”. Our perceived problems and all the solutions exist side by side; together (in wholeness).  For every cause there is already an effect.  For every question there is already an answer. 

If the narcissistic behavior is based on the perception that love is conditional then unconditional love must be the answer.  

Someone I’ve been working with gave me the perfect opportunity to put this simple solution to the test.  As a recovering  narcissist herself, she is struggling to live with one.  YAAS! There is a cure.   Keep in mind, simple does not necessarily mean “easy”.    

Her questions now, “What is my part in this relationship?” “ How can I remain peaceful when he is constantly worrying , needling and criticizing?” “ How can I help him and is it even my job?” 

All good questions.  Sometimes, we receive  from a relationship what we came for ( the purpose has been served) and it is time to leave.  I’m reminding of slalom water skiing.  I know  when the ride is over.  If I hang on past that, it’s going to hurt.    Not all relationships are meant to last forever.  Some are very brief but the shift in us they create last a lifetime.

For “Highest Best” we are always attracting what we need for Spiritual Growth.  The Law of Attraction makes sure this happens (like energy attracts like energy).

In the dysfunctional relationship we are always mirroring  “untruths” for each other that are running in the background (subconscious).  These relationships continue until the “untruths” are brought into the light of consciousness .  This can be a long, painful cycle.

 Unconditional love is the mirror that allows others to see themselves “truly” AS LOVE – creating a shortcut.

In answer to her questions Spirit said, “ Try this.” Lead with love.  Let love be LOUDER (Meredith Whitney).  

  •  Don’t engage in unloving behavior.   It takes two to tango.  Just say I LOVE YOU a lot with meaning!  “Have I told you lately that I love you?  I do.”
  • When he says things you don’t agree with or is not true, say “That’s an interesting perspective” (one of my mentor’s favorites).   This statement does not push or pull.  It is neutral.  It has no charge.   (If you can’t remain neutral, that is YOUR SIGN  to go within and find the sore spot (the untruth) that he is rubbing against.)
  • Ask innocent questions like a curious child without judgment (no opinion).  This will allow him to question himself without judgment.   Judgment buries Truth.  It is what buried him and you to begin with.
  • Don’t point out his perceived faults or errors.  He knows what they are.  Calling attention  to them holds him in a cycle of self-judgement.  JUDGMENT BURIES TRUTH.  Simply allow him to learn from the Universal Law of “Cause and Effect” (our natural way of learning).

 Our thoughts and actions are the cause and our happiness, discomfort or dis-ease is the effect.  Born of Source Creator, it is our journey and mission to uncover the creator within so we can become  “conscious creators”.

The experiment has begun and I invite you to participate along with us.  If you have a narcissist front and center in your life, I challenge you to Lead with Love…LET LOVE BE LOUDER and see what happens.

The Power of the Creative Moment

“We are in the “Presence” of our Creator (God if you will)
when we are in the creative moment”.
 


I experienced this in a most real way this weekend and yesterday as I worked in the kitchen training two new chefs so I can expand myself and stay focused on the healing work that is mine to do and the books that are mine to publish.

I’ve learned there is “Nothing for Nothing”.  There is Good to be uncovered in all things. Situations that seem most inconvenient can lead us into massive, mind-bending revelations if we remain open to them.    

What was the inconvenience?  My air conditioner went out this last Friday evening .   Terrible timing!   Not only are we in the “Dog Days” of summer in Texas, my son (an A/C guru) had just left town.  “After hours and weekend services” (emergencies) are super expensive.    I knew my son would be back on Sunday evening and I was willing to wait it out.

However, leaving for cooler shelter was not an option…I was committed to training these chefs Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  I needed them trained this weekend for chef services already committed to.  I texted them and explained the situation, telling them I would totally understand if they wanted to re-schedule.  One said “no problem”.  She has owned several restaurants and is used to hot kitchens.   “If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen”…right?   Things shifted with the other and she ended up coming on Monday (I thought the A/C would be fixed by then).   As it happened I ended up not cooking on Saturday. It was late Monday night before the air-conditioning was up and running.

Over the course of the day on Monday all three  of us experienced the same “ah ha”.  When we were focused on the cooking; totally engaged in creativity, we were completely unaware of the heat.  We started at 92 degrees and ended at 97. (Saturday was not so bad.  The house had not had enough time to really heat up.)

We noticed at one point none of us had broken a sweat!  As soon as we brought our focus back into our surroundings we begin to notice the heat.  It was only then that we became uncomfortable and wet. 

What could have been a miserable experience, became a pleasant and even at times a joyful and fun one, full of awe and wonder as we became aware of this phenomenon. 

What became so clear to us through this experience?  What we focus on becomes our reality.  This is Quantum Physics in a nutshell.    And, the world disappears as we come into the Creative Presence.

“There is a way to be in the world and not of it”.  This is the way.   We are spirit having a human experience.  We are in a body, but what the body experiences does not define us or change who we truly are.  

“Nothing we could ever think, say or do will ever change what is True”.

When we are in our creative, infinite, undefinable state of being, we are living our True Nature as timeless spirit.

I challenge you today to prove this to yourself.   Our faith is reinforced through experience.   Change you focus, or as a client so eloquently said the other day, “Take a Shift!”   Shift the focus of your thoughts and see what happens.    Take note of what happens when you are in “creative mode”.  Bear witness to how the world disappears and with it any discomfort as you come fully into the present moment. 

I would love to hear about your “Creative Moment” experiences with this experiment.  Email me…gail@foodrevelation.com

Here’s to your Peace, Joy, LOVE and Abundant Health!

P.S.  Stay tuned for “Could Mindfulness be the Cure for Forgetfulness”.

Healing the Relationship with Food… Part 2

Here is Part One in case you missed it:https://www.foodrevelation.com/healing-the-relationship-with-food-part-one/

Healing the body for many may mean re-establishing the relationship with our collective mother “Mother Nature”…What I call God’s Birthing Place.  The nurturing “organic” substanence for all forms of life comes from this womb.

The archaic definition of “organic” is “instrumental”.  Mother Nature is instrumental in the formation and nurturing of our bodies. 

Merriam Webster also defines organic as “organize”.  There is an organized structure to the creation of life.  Also, the word “fundamental” comes up.   This organic structure Mother Nature provides is fundamental in forming (informing) the “organized” organic whole.

A chemical reaction occurs when combining organic matter.  It is not the fundamental cause.  It cannot happen without the building blocks (the organization) that Mother Nature has already provided.

With all this being said, it makes sense that to rejuvenate, restore and maintain this human body and all bodies in nature for that matter, we need the perfect structure and building blocks that Mother Nature provides.  The chemical process is a step removed from this or can be many steps removed.

It is true we can raise the vibration of our food with our love and gratitude prayers and bring it more in alignment with what we need.   However, the more chemical a food becomes the further removed it is from Source and its nurturing, life sustaining energy.  Organic food is naturally most compatible to our organic bodies.

So, does this mean we must always strive for Mother Nature’s perfection in what we eat?  NO. Perfection is not a requirement in life.  Ironically, the need for perfection can take us out of alignment with our health and happiness by creating stress.   Judgement = Stress.  The body makes acid when under stress making it very hard to maintain a healthy pH.

If you are very inflexible with your food; always eating “the right” thing for fear of getting sick or beating yourself up for eating the “wrong thing”, the fear and judgment will sabotage your best efforts.   Fear is the energy behind all eating disorders; whether it is eating for perfection or eating to destroy perfection (your body).

Intention is everything.  If you are a “health nut” you can know if fear is running the show by asking one simple question.  “Am I eating to honor my body and support my God-given health or avoid dis-ease?”  

If you answered yes to the latter, you may want to take a closer look at what you are really trying to avoid.  What is the underlying fear?  As we undercover these fears, we uncover our Truth.  Someone said it like this (I can’t remember who), “Fear is just an initiation into fearlessness”.

There is “nothing for nothing”.
Every experience we have in life brings us closer and closer to our True Nature….LOVE. Through my experience with many clients over the years, I’ve come to realize, for many the relationship with food is mirroring a childhood perception of what “love is” based on their experience with a mother figure.  For instance; they may have felt unnurtured. 

Stay Tuned for Part 3 of “Healing the Relationship with Food”. … When the relationship with food is mirroring a mother/child relationship.  In this part I will share real life success stories from my client files. 

Thank you for tuning in and sharing.   Until next time, here’s to your Peace, Joy, LOVE and abundant Health!
