“If I were to believe in” has turned out to be a highly useful phrase that I connected with recently in a Matrix Energetics seminar. It goes something like this, “If I were to believe in this . . . . . construct, system, way of looking at things, belief ….. it could be helpful in this situation.”
If I were to believe in muscle checking, then this is a situation that might benefit from my using it.
If I were to believe in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), it can now shift this pain.
If I were to believe in using my imagination to create what I want then I can manifest something new in my life.
Get the drift? It opens the door to utilize all sorts of tools and techniques, allowing the ego-mind to let go of its need to understand how they work. It’s a “work-around” for the doubting mind, keeping you from getting trapped by thinking there is only one reality/one way/”right way,” to interact with an issue.
Here’s how I used this recently in my own life. For several months I have been experiencing periods of feeling depressed. (I wrote about one such time in an earlier blog post.) I tried a number of things that I know to do to shift feelings and emotions and they would work, but only temporarily. So, I reached out to my Consciousness Playground community and asked for help.
Paul and Alice stepped forward. They work as a team. Paul muscle checks for direction and Alice “sees” into the body then asks for angelic and spirit guides to come forward to assist with the removal of the “gunk” she finds.
My oh my, they found some interesting things: a long metal spur in my left heel, a cubed block in my solar plexus (this pun apparently intended by the guides), a hot burning poker from an accident in a prior life, among other things. The Arch Angel Michael even showed up one time to assist.
If I were to believe that Alice sees these energy blocks in me, it could be useful to have her remove them.
If I were to believe that angels and spirit guides are here to help me, I may feel comforted by their energies.
If I were to believe in past lives, then the old wounds from them that are affecting this current life might heal.
Using this phrase allows my mind to let go of questioning whether any of this is “real,” or the “right” process, or the “truth.” The duality of having to prove something to myself drops away because the phrase is just about opening to the possibility of the construct, not choosing one side or other of the belief, and then new potential states of being can surface.
So, what I notice is that I do feel lighter. There were some “whispers” of that depressive energy, but those seem to have also disappeared. If I were to believe in what they did, I would say it worked!
Two people whose work I admire both launched a new product this week. Both products are geared toward inspiring you to utilize your inner guidance to create the life that you want. Sound familiar? You can see why I would be interested since this fits my life’s purpose as well.
Christian Pankhurst was voted Britain’s Top Coach last year. I followed his progress because I appreciated how well he incorporated using/feeling your emotions as an inner guide to gain clarity about what really counts in your life. With the funds he received from this honor, he has produced some outstanding, value-driven videos to teach and talk about how your emotions add the “juice” you need to manifest more of what you want in life. He calls the juice the “real secret behind the Law of Attraction.”
You can sign up to receive this video series for free here. If you’ve already seen the first video and want to now watch the second one, use this link.
DavidPaul Doyle, along with his wife Candace, wrote a book several years ago, The Voice for Love, that inspired me to listen more deeply, and trust more fully, the inner communication with my Higher Self that I had begun to experience.
His latest book, When God Spoke to Me, is a collection of true-life stories of ordinary men and women who experienced hearing God’s voice. These accounts will move you to see life from a new perspective. They are filled with captivating authenticity and emotions that cross the gamut of religious and spiritual boundaries.
I just got a note from DavidPaul that if you buy the book on it’s first day of release, which is today (Wednesday, 3/17/10), you will receive a 33% discount from both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. And, you also receive a bunch of bonuses with your purchase, including my booklet, The 4 Cornerstones for Channeling Your Higher Self.
I hope you choose to take advantage of both of these products. I have!
Learning to “hear,” interpret and integrate the communication of your deep inner guidance is the basis for my teleclass Resourcing the Riches of Your Higher Self. The “2for1″ discount expires Friday, March 19. There is only a limited number available. Class begins Tuesday, March 23.
I flew through the air last week. Not particularly with the greatest of ease, but I actually succeeded at transferring to a hand grab and have the video to prove it! This week I’ve been processing what really happened for me on that trapeze. What I conclude is probably different than what you might expect.
My belief is that we create our realities in order to have an experience. I’ve been mulling over this week just what was the experience? What did it mean to me? What was being communicated to me from my Higher Self ?
(My friend, Tricia, and I also jumped out of a plane last fall.)
On the physical front I got really sore, not the day afterward as everyone told me would happen, but two, three, and even four days later my chest, biceps, triceps and abs were screaming! It was physically challenging to hold the bar high just before take off, to hook my legs over the bar, and to curl back up to grab the bar during the practice runs. But, I’ve challenged my body a number of times and this didn’t feel like it was “the experience” I was there to have.
Emotionally, I have a fear of heights, especially when I am standing on the edge of a drop off. Climbing up the ladder, climbing onto the platform and then standing on the edge holding a heavy bar all stimulated wild amounts of adrenaline coursing through my body. Again, I’ve faced down this fear a number of times on ropes courses and so this also didn’t feel like “it.”
Spiritually I didn’t find a connection. I thought I would really enjoy the feeling of flight and feel free like a bird. However, the actuality is that I was so focused on trying to execute the movements as they were being called up to me that I was hardly aware that I was in flight! And, I think this is the insight that I’m looking for.
Every part of my mental energy was focused on getting the movement patterns in place to create the perfect timing in order to perform the final trick. With each practice run I would feel the adrenaline of the physical and emotional challenge, and also that of moving myself forward towards the final goal. I was on assignment!
It’s not that I didn’t have fun, because I did. And the staff at Trapeze Austin was excellent in maintaining a focus on the end goal and moving me toward it with wonderfully positive reinforcement.
What I realize, however, is that I am in my zone of excellence (ala Gay Hendricks, The Big Leap) when I am goal oriented. I stay mentally focused on the goal, using a mentally oriented structure to consistently move forward and I usually achieve success. Nothing wrong with that, except, that I am now more interested in being / living in my zone of genius. I perceive my zone of genius shows up when I am taking action from a place of excitement and passion. I want to be passionately engaged in each moment; not doing things because of where they will take me (or my biz), but because they are exciting, fun and inspire my genius. I want to be/live/work from this feeling place rather than being mentally driven.
The question becomes, how to be/live/work from excitement and passion without creating mental structure and goals about doing so? A funny conundrum!
If you like to play with improving your understanding and interpretation of the guidance you constantly receive (whether you know it or not) from your Higher Self, please join me in Resourcing the Riches of Your Higher Self teleclass beginning on Tuesday, March 23 at 4:00 CT.

Recently I received a locker at work with a combination lock. It’s been really nice having a place to put all of my stuff. Sort of reminds me of high school.
I have also started swimming indoors and have thought it would be nice to have a lock there so that I can have a safe place to store my things while swimming. But I hadn’t purchased one because I just didn’t want to learn a new combination. What I kept thinking was, “wouldn’t it be nice to have a lock with the same combination as I have at work?” I’m sure locks exist where you can set the combination, but I’m not a shopper and didn’t spend any time looking for one.
I was out running errands last Friday afternoon and was near a drug store and felt the nudge to just go buy a lock. I stood in front of the selection and one lock kept getting my attention, but my mind wanted a “prettier” red one. The one that my eyes kept moving to was sort of drab and the numbers didn’t stand out as well. However, by the third time that my hand reached for this lock I recognized the inner guidance that was coming through me (duh!) and purchased it.
How I laughed when I opened it to see the combination. It begins with the same number as my work combination and then the next two numbers are exactly double that of the work lock. Now, that’s abut as close a match to my request as one could get, don’t you think?
And, once again I’m reminded of how great it is to be able to recognize the inner guidance that is always flowing to me. This is the kind of stuff I’m sharing in the Resourcing the Riches of Your Higher Self teleclass that begins Tuesday, March 23, 4:00 CT.
