Embrace Change!

Nature shows us that change is a constant in this process we call physical life. The seasons take us through the process of birth, life, death, and rebirth. Birth in the spring, life in the summer, the ageing process and harvest in the autumn and death in the winter to be reborn again the following spring.
Our physical body also renews itself continuously with cells constantly being produced, and then replaced to ensure our body functions optimally.
Many of us fear change simply because our first experience of change at birth was traumatic and full of pain and struggle. Birth is the moment when we metamorphose from a water mammal to an air breathing mammal. It is when we first encounter the kingdom of opposites; light & dark, hot & cold, up & down, hungry & satisfied, safe & not safe. Our first breath initiates these monumental physiological changes. The in breath and the out breath, forever destined to be their opposite. Our emergence from the womb introduces variation, and the cutting of the cord is the instant we become an individual, no longer part of our mother's physiology. Forced methods of birth often mean that this phenomenal process of change happens in shock, with the baby experiencing physiological pain, under nourishment (if the cord is cut too early), an assault on the senses, and fear as they register 'unsafe'.

We are conscious at birth and we are registering the experience. Although our cognitive proceses are undeveloped, we respond to the primal instinct of survival that is triggered by fear for our physical safety. If we look at the way most babies are born, we are crazy to think that it does not cause an effect. The pre cognitive brain then associates change with 'not safe' and we develop a resistance to change. Once we understand that our resistance to change comes from an old subconscious thought pattern we then allow ourselves the choice of taking Socrate's advice and focussing our energy on building the new rather than fighting the old.

The more individuals that embrace change, the more we will be able to create the changes that need to occur on a global scale if we are to ensure the sustainablility of the human race. We have reached a place in our evolution that is no longer comfortable and we cannot continue to assault the earth, our bodies or each other. Greed and separatism need to be replaced by compassion and unity. If we fail to heed the need for consciously created change, we may find that 'life' knocks it down so we are forced to build something new.

The first book in the Stack

I posted this meme on facebook and received a lot of interest so I thought I would expand the concept to give greater insight into this simple and powerful wisdom.

Each negative experience, memory, emotion is another book on the stack of your negative beliefs about yourself, relationships, and life in general. I view the bottom book as your earliest life experiences, including gestation, birth, and immediately after birth. As these early life experiences occur in the pre verbal and pre conscious memory stage, they are stored hidden in the subconsicous and form our first impression of what it is to be human. The first book has been created and forms the foundation for the eventual stack that goes on top.

"Physical Birth matters! The shared experience mother and baby have at birth creates a shared memory. We form our first impressions of what it is to be human. How does a gestating or newborn baby make decisions? By confirming the impressions it receives, on a pre-verbal level. Deeply imprinted in the subconscious, these decisions become the premise upon which the child builds its subsequent logic and early attitudes about self, others, and the environment. Since this primal understanding influences the growing child’s every situational encounter, the quality of pregnancy and birth deeply impact the quality of society. For example, if the baby experiences a violent, difficult birth that causes them to FEEL a lot of pain, they do not have the capacity to think ‘that is just the challenge of birth, everyone was doing their best and thank god I am alive’. Instead, they record, ‘it hurts, I am not safe, no one is helping me, it is too hard’, all negative archetypal thought forms that we will explore in more detail in Chapter Six – Shattering the Crystal."
(Excerpt from my soon to be published book, 'Unlock your Creative Potential' - Understanding the impact of our earliest life experiences by Binnie A Dansby & Lynne Thorsen)

You may seek therapy, personal development courses or other self-help strategies and succed in removing some of the books from the stack. However the stack is still there and still impacts your choices and life experiences. While the stack exists, it can continue to be added to and you eventually find yourself back at square one. You then feel confused and disappointed that you couldn't sustain the healing and development that you had done.

Exploring your early life experiences and first traumas through specifically designed inquiry processes and non ordinary states of consciousness, creates awareness of how the negativity began. With this awareness it is then possible to make a different choice and heal those long forgotten decisions.
When you remove the first book in the stack, the rest come tumbling down and transformation is the result.

From Fear to Love - Part One What is Fear?

What stops you realising your dreams, living the life you really want or sustaining great relationships? What causes debilitating illnesses and diseases?

The simple answer is the presence of FEAR, whether it is at your conscious level of awareness of not. Fear causes us to elicit the 'Fight or Flight' response and construct barriers to PROTECT ourselves, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

I devised this blog series 'From Fear to Love' so that we can explore together the impact Fear has on all our life systems. The goal is to help people move from an unconscious operating system based in Fear to a conscious operating system originating from Love.

Fear is not a truth, fear is a PERCEPTION. What is fearful to one person may not be to another. Therefore our mind has to perceive danger and recognise fear in order to activate the emotional and physical responses that we experience in our body.
Our perceived notion of danger comes from our thoughts and beliefs, both programmed and instinctual, conscious and unconscious. (A belief is a thought that we keep thinking.)
Certain fears are hardwired and part of our instinctual brain such as if we were confronted by a dangerous animal out in the wild. This is part of our survival mechanism and is not advisable to deactivate.

Other fears come from our experiences and our interpretation of our experiences. Many fears are programmed from the beliefs of others ie parents, teachers, religious leaders, friends etc. Other fears are created before we have the ability to rationalise and we may not be aware they are even there. Some feaful beliefs are subliminally programmed through constant repetition. This is how propoganda and advertising work.

Some fears are in our conscious awareness, others hide in our subconscious and are subtly activated without us knowing that that is what is happening.

Most fears are irrational and not based on an absolute truth.  All learned irrational fears can be unlearned and all barriers removed when we learn how to change our thoughts and beliefs!
I used to be terrified of spiders due to a childhood experience. Although my fear response was real, I realised that it was not rational thinking. One day I decided I didn't want that fear anymore and I let it go during a meditation. Since that day I am no longer irrationally afraid of harmless spiders. However, if I was put in a room and told that I was sharing it with an aggressive man eating spider, I am sure that my fear response would be activated.

Next time we will look at the Anatomy of Fear, that is how fear affects our physical body both consciously and unconsciously and at the macro and micro levels.

In the meantime, think about what stops you?
What barriers exist in your life?
 How do you protect yourself?

In-Tuition - What are you learning?

Intuition is something that we all possess, it might be that you just don't know how to use it!

I love words! When you look more closely at the etymology of words, you discover greater depth of meaning and an understanding that at the time that our languages were being developed there was a greater awareness of the connection between mind, body and spirit.

When we look at the word INTUITION we can see that what it really says is In - Tuition, in other words in the process of learning and gathering of knowledge. The more that we pay attention to the information that comes from within, the more we are able to use that knowledge to our own advantage. Another way we can look at the word is being In Tune  or Tuning in to the vibrational energetic information all around us.

How we perceive the information we receive will also impact how effectively we can use it.

The five essential capacities for clear perception of intuitive information are;
Presence - To Tune In you must be present to yourself and your inner world (soul)
Attention - Pay attention to the inner, listen in, observe sensations, develop awareness of communications
Trust - believe in yourself and your ability to receive the information
Intimacy - Become intimate with your own inner world
Courage - Take the risk of diving into the unknown
