We are all interior designers. The question is what are we designing? Would we hire ourselves to design our lives? Are we designing with a consciousness that is ready to face a changing world? COVID19 wasn’t[ the beginning of the world in change. It has always been changing. Change is who we are, as we swim in the sea of a Universal Changeless Energy that is Love. The Field of Energy awaits our command and the only way to reach it is through our own consciousness. ”As a man thinketh, so he is.”
In his book, Human By Design, author Gregg Braden writes, “New DNA evidence suggests that we are the result of an intentional act of creation, that has imbued us with extraordinary abilities of intuition, compassion, empathy, love and self-healing.” He goes on to write, “The stories that we tell ourselves about ourselves and believe define our lives.”
Who do you think you are? Whichever way you answer that question defines your life. If there is one thing we need to understand about ourselves it is who we are. Ernest Holmes, Founder of the Science of Mind once wrote, “We were left alone to discover ourselves.” I believe this is our discovery.
However, who left us alone and why did we have to discover ourselves? How did that intentional act of creation happen? Why couldn’t we come to earth fully orbed as fully conscious beings? My only answer to this question right now is that the why doesn’t matter, and I might never know. I am more interested in discovering who I am and what I am capable of and how I can thrive in an ever-changing world. I am more interested in being so immersed in my interior design that I can always call on my intuition constantly, that my compassion is alive and always present and that my empathy for others leads me to be a consciousness of healing during these turbulent times.
Greg Braden further writes that “the greatest crisis we have during these times is a crisis of thinking. How can we make room for the new world that is emerging if we are clinging to an old way of thinking?”
The way we think and the way we feel is everything. Those who study healing such as Dr. Joe Dispenza speak on our emotions as being the beginning of all disease. Those who come to him ill can pinpoint exactly the moment when they had an event in their life that triggered intense emotion that was never resolved and then led to disease. This is because when we leave our emotions unresolved, they find a place to hide in our bodies. If you remember the story of Anita Moorjani’s spontaneous healing, it took place when she crossed over to the other side and visited with her father, healing intense past emotions and transmuting them to love.
We are totally designed from the inside out. It is a fact that we can no longer deny. The medical world is beginning to believe it. Mystics always knew it and know it. We all are now beginning to understand that how we think affects our lives.
Our thoughts are gathered together and are reflected in how we speak to ourselves and others. It is called our Word and it has power. Remember the old children’s rhyme…”Sticks and stone can hurt my bones, but names can never harm me.” Names do give life or they give death. There was a Bible passage we read in class the other night from Proverbs: “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.” (Proverbs 21:23)
The world is moving fast and we are either advancing or going backward. Which way are you traveling? Is it hard to let go of the way you’ve always thought and believed? Do you even know what you believe? Do you listen to yourself? Do you believe your thoughts and words have power?
If Quantum Science and the mystics and indigenous peoples of the past are correct and we are here by an intentional act, then our lives must be intentional in order to thrive and evolve. We have everything within us to make a difference, to shift, to change, to succeed, to assist with the transformation of the planet through shifting our lives to think differently.
I am thinking of my own evolution. I was brought up to believe that children should be quiet. I was brought up to believe it is dangerous to fly. I was brought up to believe that the old way was the correct way and change was dangerous. People didn’t necessarily say these things outright, but it was implied and it formed my mind and the way I thought. I rebelled. If I had continued to think those things, I would not be standing here in this capacity today helping others and being an asset to this planet.
When I began to learn who I was – a pinpoint of divine intelligence interacting in space and time – I realized how important I was to the whole. I began to learn to use spiritual tools to meet my challenges. I began to be more flexible in my thinking and more open at the top. I began to use my imagination and have curiosity for life. I began to understand that it is more powerful to be positive if I want to have positive experiences then it is to be a naysayer. I began to understand that as I spoke my word with the backing of knowing who I was that my word had great power. I began to trust my heart and my intuition. I realized that all the changes I made in my life that others considered selfish were the exact right changes for me. Everything and I mean everything that transpired in my life led me here, and everything that is occurring now is leading me forever into all the changes that will still take place in my life.
I think the place to start is to begin to realize that our lives are inside jobs, that when we look out, we are looking out from the inside and what we see shows up that way. Without becoming spiritually bypassing, I am realizing that everything and I mean everything I experience is my perception of what it is.
The beautiful part of all of this is it is all my life. There wasn’t a mistake even if at the time it seemed like one to me or others. Everything I discovered about myself led me to become a more conscious thinker and to anchor me in my life allowing me to change when needed.
Even now, through this pandemic me along with others have had to shift and change and bend and find new ways to look at everything and to live with grace and integrity in our own souls.
Ernest Holmes once wrote, “To learn how to think, is to learn how to live.” We are inwardly designed to meet all the changes that take place in the world and in our lives. Our challenges become opportunities and we grow and take wisdom from everything that waters our future experiences.
