Creating a More Loving World

Being violent is not our true nature; however, it is perpetuated by our thoughts and rooted in fear. Yet, how can we expect the world to be non-violent when we are violent? Yes, you are violent everyday to yourself and to others. You may not think that you are violent, but every negative thought is a form of violence.

The violence of today, including physical violence is supported by the conditioning of our past and reinforced by the critical and destructive self-talk that we impose on others and ourselves. Thinking that we are not worthy or making judgments about other people is destructive. We can even be violent to ourselves when we think that we are fat, not worthy, not smart enough, not…

This kind of self-talk, supports the world’s violent nature on an energetic level and when combined with enough people manifest on a physical level. Your thoughts are prayers and just like the prayer that leads to healing, having negative thoughts consistently is a prayer that can manifest violence, problems in your life and even illness. Consistently being in a stressful or angry state changes your biochemistry and can lead to physical and emotional problems as well as misguided actions.

If you expect the world to change and violence to end then you must change yourself and what better place to start than with your thoughts, why, because this is where it all begins and ends. Therefore, if you want the world to change, then I suggest that you start here and the rest will take care of itself.

Strengthen your awareness muscle and you will begin to see just how incessant your negative thoughts are. You do this by paying more attention to your thoughts throughout the day. When you hear something negative or unloving, reframe that thought to support the kind of world you want.

Reframe the destructive thoughts to be about the kind of person you know you are, the True-Self. Do not continue to allow the False-Self to rule your actions by pointing the finger towards something or someone else outside yourself. Know that everything outside you can be resolved by looking inward. Remember the person you are now is who you have become from your conditioning and the experiences you have will support this conditioning, unless you begin to wake up by paying attention to your thoughts.

The person you are now is not the real you, you only THINK it is. This person is only something you thought you needed to survive, when all along the real you, the True-Self was there waiting for you. You thought you were protecting yourself from your pain and all the things that you did not know how to deal with or understand. Know that you have always done your best and you did nothing wrong. Now that you know better, you will do better each step of the way. You are beautiful and powerful being that is connected to creation as only the True-Self can be and you will find your way out of your conditioning by paying attention and using your awareness to wake up to this truth.

Short and Sweet #120 – What’s UP With Prayer

Many intentionally use the power of prayer to change their lives. However, do you realize that everyone on the planet prays? Yes, I said everyone; this even includes people who do not believe in God.

Prayer is a dialog with God and this dialog is an exchange of energy. Now if you have read my blog you know that God is the creative energy of the universe. When we look at what makes up everything in the universe we know that it is energy. Our thoughts are energy and that energy has the power to create. Did you ever consider your thoughts to be a prayer?

A prayer is not just a verbal dialog with God, but it can also be an energetic dialog through our thoughts. If we are not paying attention and we have a repetitive thought, it can become a prayer. If this thought is negative, it can manifest just as easily as a positive one. Please note I said repetitive, I am not saying every thought we have will manifest into your life, obviously that does not happen. Nor is every prayer answered in the way that we THINK we NEED or WANT. What I am saying is to begin noticing what you say to yourself . Of course, this requires developing awareness to your unconscious thoughts and then reframing them.

If your prayers seem to go unanswered, do not blame God. God is not the problem. Instead, look within and notice what you feel around your specific prayer. Is there fear or uncertainty? Are you asking for just what you want or what you really need? Is there a clear intention behind your prayer and have you let go of attachment to the outcome? Many will pray outwardly for one thing while believing inwardly that it will never happen. These are conflicting energies and create confusion for creating what you want.

It is important to strip away the layers of social conditioning, false beliefs and inner fears to connect fully with the creative energy of the universe. This is because prayer is not a substitute for our inner work, but it can be a positive tool for connecting to the heart of creation. Whether it is using a specific prayer or just having a normal conversation with the Divine does not matter. What matters is your faith in creation to respond in a way that is for your highest good, then accepting the outcome with gratitude, even when your prayer is not answered in the way that you want. We do not always see the beauty in what shows up until we let go of our resistance to what is.
