Short and Sweet #95 – Circular Self-Destruction


I know, what in the world is Circular Self-Destruction (CSD). It sounds ominous doesn’t it? You should know that we are all infected by it. OK, I just made it up but that does not mean that you are not infected by it, let me explain.

Have you ever heard something that you lived your life by, only to find out later that it was not true? How about life is hard, have you heard this one? Do you believe this is true? Hear me out before you go listening to your thoughts, which are probably saying that life can be hard. If you have heard this, can you remember where you heard it for the first time? How many things have you heard like this; not remember where you heard it, yet live by it blindly?

We are like sponges soaking up information in the form of energy from the time of conception until we die. When we are a baby, we do not understand language but we pick information up from our parents and surroundings by what we hear, see and most importantly feel. We begin to learn about getting attention and what we need and as we grow older, we mimic our parent’s words and actions. Learning and forming beliefs does not always come from what we think as traditional ways of learning, like school or watching our parents.

We learn many things in this world just by being in it through the diffusion of energy. Many of our beliefs are formed unconsciously through the energetic transmittance that emanates from all things. Simply put we unconsciously pick up information from the energy field of the people around us and the energy field that we live in. Now if this sounds crazy to you just think about a time when you were in a large crowd or even just with one person and you walked away feeling different than you did before that experience. What do you think changed your state?

OK back to the example that life is hard. Once you receive this message and believe it, this effects your energy field. Then when something challenges you in life, you immediately think to yourself they were right, life is hard. For some people it is so strong that the unconscious thought keeps repeating and then difficult things happen more often because they are drawn to them energetically and this creates CSD. This can happen with any belief we have such as, “you have to work hard for your money”. If you believe this statement, then what do you think your work life will be like. Now I am not saying that we shouldn’t work hard, but there is a big difference between working hard by choice or thinking that the only way to make money is to work hard.

Can you experience life challenges differently? Of course you can, you can look at them as opportunities and learn from them. Resistance shows up any time we think something is hard and this can cause suffering. The way to release any pattern of behavior is first become aware of it, which I have talked about before. Look at your life and see if you are exhibiting CSD behavior. Is it time to shift some energy?
