THE LIFE COACH SCHOOL PODCAST – Episode 110
I want to take a few days, maybe even into next week, to look at goals – to look at what I can do now to set my future-self up. Let’s start here.
Brooke uses this entire podcast episode to quote Dr Joe Dispenza, from three books that he has written. The only one I have read myself is Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself. Bryant and I worked on reading it together. It has really turned upside-down our thoughts about the power we wield.
Brooke literally shares quote after quote, with no commentary. I will choose only a few that speak to me. Let’s look at this together:
Psychologists tell us that by the time we’re in our mid-30s, our identity or personality will be completely formed. This means that for those of us over 35, we have memorized a select set of behaviors, attitudes, beliefs, emotional reactions, habits, skills, associative memories, conditioned responses, and perceptions that are now subconsciously programmed within us. Those programs are running us because the body has become ‘mind’. This means that we will think the same thoughts, feel the same feelings, react in identical ways, behave in the same manner, believe the same dogmas, and perceive reality the same ways. About 95% of who we are by midlife is a series of subconscious programs that have been automatic: driving a car, brushing our teeth, overeating when we’re stressed, worrying about our future, judging our friends, complaining about our lives, blaming our parents, not believing in ourselves, just to name a few.
We are literally just repeating our lives, my friends! Does this blow you away? Okay. Let me see if I can do this without commentary.
Think of it this way. The input remains the same so that the output has to remain the same. How then can you ever create anything new? If you want a new outcome, you will have to break the habit of being yourself and reinvent a new self. What beliefs and perceptions about you and your life have you been unconsciously agreeing to, that you’d have to change in order to create this new state of being?
You can teach your body emotionally what it would feel like to believe in this way, to be empowered, to be moved by your own greatness, to be invincible, to have courage, to be in love with life, to feel unlimited, to live as if your prayers are already answered.
Can you accept the notion that once you change your internal state, you don’t need the external world to provide you with a reason to feel joy, gratitude, appreciation, or any other elevated emotion?
The latest research supports the notion that we have a natural ability to change the brain and body by thought alone so that it looks biologically like some future event has already happened. You can make thought more real than anything else. You can change who you are from brain cell to gene given the right understanding. Because consciousness is awareness, awareness is paying attention and paying attention is being present and noticing, this consciousness would be aware of when I was present and when I wasn’t. I would have to be totally present when I interacted with this mind. My presence would have to match its presence. My will would have to match its will. My mind would have to match its mind.
To be happy with yourself in the present moment while maintaining a dream of your future is a grand recipe for manifestation. When you feel so whole that you no longer care whether it will happen, that’s when amazing things materialize before your eyes. I’ve learned that being whole is the perfect state of creation. I’ve seen this time and time again in witnessing true healings in people all over the world. They feel so complete that they no longer want, no longer feel lack, and no longer try to do it themselves. They let go and, to their amazement, something greater than they are responds, and they laugh at the simplicity of the process.
Okay. Yes. Read that one again. And maybe again.
We can’t create a new future while we’re living in our past. It’s simply impossible. To be empowered, to be free, to be unlimited, to be creative, to be genius, to be divine, that’s who you are. Once you feel this way, memorize this feeling, remember this feeling, this is who you really are. Most change starts with a simple process of something outside of us altering something inside of us. If you begin the inward journey and start to change your inner world of thoughts and feelings, it should create an improved state of well being. If you keep repeating the process and mediation, then in time, changes should begin to alter your outer presentation and you become your own placebo.
It makes sense that we should concentrate not merely on avoiding negative emotions like fear and anger, but also consciously cultivating heartfelt positive emotions such as gratitude, joy, excitement, enthusiasm, fascination, awe, inspiration, wonder, trust, appreciation, kindness, passion, and empowerment, to give us every advantage.
Your thoughts are incredibly powerful. Choose yours wisely.
A memory without the emotional charge is called wisdom.
