What Will Change Your Life?
Today we welcome Rob White. You’ve seen Rob around Life, for instance before but did you know he has a radio program online? I’ve been enjoying it immensely since the first amazing episode! Indulge yourself in the down-to-earth yet uncommon wisdom of Rob but first engage with him here as he talks about what will change your life!
I notice that whenever I am thinking and feeling with an intention in mind, my consciousness is awake and aware. It is clear to me that my intentional thinking is the creative factor in my life.
I have also learned that when I think in limitation, I do NOT take my Unlimited-Self seriously. Over the past decade, I have taught myself to be awake and aware of false feelings of limitation that overcome me. The insight I’ve gained from this is this: when I think in limitation I fall down in my mind.
“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.” Humpty’s fall was in his mind – he thought in limitation. I know what that feels like. Do you?
“All of the king’s horses and all of the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty back together again.” Or course not! Only Humpty can stop misusing the power of his mind, and lift himself up so he feels whole and complete once again.
There was a time when I wanted all of the king’s horses and all of the king’s men to put me back together again – this was before I learned how to lift my personal feelings of desperation into elevation.
We indulge in a ‘death wish of the spirit’ when we think negatively – it invites misery and attracts tragedy. I imagine you’ve heard this many times in many ways. What did it take for me to finally understand this … so I could feeeeel it in my heart? How many times did I fall off the wall before I realized I was indulging in a death wish of my soaring spirit?
A mind occupied with the truth of one’s unlimited potential is focused, poised and confident. This is the ingredients that put Humpty back together again – it’s the ingredients that helped me create myself anew.
I remember the night, at 3:00 am, when I finally heard my inner-self speaking to me. The voice said,“Beware, Rob! To turn the splendid powers of your mind toward negative ideas is to direct your potential toward your own destruction. On the other hand – when your mind is clear about the positive life-experiences that you yearn to enjoy, you free yourself from the thousand howling NO’s that assaulted you in childhood moments of pain and fear.”
I stayed up all night pondering the illuminating tip I’d heard myself give myself. I asked myself again and again, “What can I do for myself to prove that when I am free of the howling NO’s that haunt my mind – I will no longer wail out “WOE is me” when life places a challenge before me?”
The answer finally came: “Thinking for myself in a positive way – that’s it! That’s the recipe for experiencing my unlimitedness.” It is weakness to think that others can think for me or that the world determines my future. It is relieving wisdom to know that I can think for myself and I am endowed with the divine right to think positively.
I immediately began chanting, “WOW is me, I have an opportunity to prove I am unlimited and free!” I made this chant a part of me whenever I felt discouraged.
“How many people can achieve real change?” Everyone who succeeds with putting himself/herself back together again. Stated in another way – Be brave for yourself. You can be. I did it by voluntarily enduring the shock of letting go of wrong ideas that I held of myself.
Have you ever been brave for yourself? Will you share a time when ‘being brave for yourself’ has worked for you?
