According to His Riches in Glory!

According to His Riches in Glory!

Generally, January is a month that I used to take off because of how incredibly slow it was. But this month I gleaned 30% more business than an average month. When all was said and done, God took care of every need in one month for all the extra bills and my regular bills.

 

I shared with you that January had been a month of considerable debt. I had a transmission leak and an oil leak in a BMW (not cheap), a had a front tooth break (also not cheap), I had an unexpected $1500 extra to pay in quarterly taxes, and today I had to pay a plumber $350 to fix some clogging issue under my house. All in all, the debt came to almost $5000.

 

As I shared with you before, I believe that Spirit God is also Unlimited Source. Where there is a need with God, there is also a way to produce what you need. I was inclined to share this need with you because I felt sure God would support my every need and I wanted my readers to see that supply comes with faith in unlimited source.

 

I also want you to know that I set out at the beginning of this month to lose 10 pounds. I am at a 9 pound loss right now. I gave myself two weeks initially to lose the weight, but I realized that for someone my weight and height, that two weeks was a short amount of time to take off ten pounds. I feel certain that the extra pound will be off in two days by the end of the month.

 

I can now fit back in all my jeans. Actually, all my pants are desperately needing a belt now. So, maybe the consistent abdominal exercises have been a great help in taking the inches off as well.

 

The title to this blog is “According to His Riches in Glory!” What exactly does that mean to you? Do you see God as a man in the sky that is doling out money and gold? Or is it more right to see God as spirit ever present, changing our minds about situations and our limitations?

 

When you see God as spirit changing your mind, then you are more apt to be the creator of your own life and make the changes necessary for good to appear in your life. When you have the expectation that God is a man doling out money, you may get the idea that you are standing in a long welfare line and that there may not be enough when you actually get to the front of the line.

 

God is not a human. God is spirit. God operates as spirit. This is exactly why we must learn to be in the now and become observers of our human selves. If we expect God to act as humans do, then we anthropomorphize God and change its spiritual ways into human traits. This isn’t good for you or anyone else.

 

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want a God who acts like any human I know. I want a spirit rich in Glory and beauty, powerful beyond measure, maker of the universe, and connected to me through prayer and meditation.

 

I want a God I can look up to and model my behavior after. I’m not sure there was a man besides Jesus that I know of that I would want as a mentor. People have faults. Everyone does. And the problem with making men and women our idols and mentors is that they are bound to disappoint us in so many ways.

 

I think most of us are grown up enough in spirit to make God be our only model for perfection. Let’s count on, depend on, rely on spirit to change our minds and wills to be a perfect conduit for unlimited good and prosperity! Let’s start now.

Are You Anxious?

Are You Anxious?

Do you really know what causes anxiety and panic attacks? I have so many clients come to my office and say they have gone to psychiatrists and therapist and have been diagnosed with panic attacks, but really don’t have a complete understanding of what panic actually is.

 

I’d like to start with an explanatory story. If you were walking toward my house from your car, and just as you got ten feet from my door, you noticed a lion behind you.  A myriad of physiological, fight or flight responses would go off in your body. Your heart would race, adrenalin and cortisol would be released into your blood stream, causing hypertension, quick response time, and almost unrecognizable speed in your body to get to safety.

 

You would run to my door, knock frantically and maybe even try to break down the door, rather than get killed by the ferocious lion. Who wouldn’t? 

 

But, say I open the door immediately, and you are swiftly rescued to safety. We call FEMA. We know that help is on it’s way? Your heart begins to slow down. Your mind stops racing. Your blood pressure slowly begins to go to normal, albeit, it may take a couple hours.

 

But, say that while waiting for help, the lion realizes that the window to the front room is unsecure. He begins to slam into the window with his strong paw. The window bay shakes. We both begin to quiver. There are three strong doors between us and the lion. We know practically that the likelihood of the lion getting to us through all those doors is small, but still the tiny threat continues.

 

This small threat is a great representative of low-grade anxiety. Small triggers like a loud sound, similar to the lion pounding on the window, may be a trigger to a panic attack. Or going to sleep that night might not feel so safe. So your heart may begin to replicate the feeling of panic again in the middle of the night when you feel completely vulnerable.

 

This is real representation anxiety. Many things can cause anxiety. Finances. Business failure. Children. Relationship problems. Juggling too many things in your life. The threat of something hidden in your past coming to the surface. Some gay people suffer from anxiety if they are not out or are married to a straight person. These are all great reasons to be harboring anxiety.

 

But how do we get rid of the poison that causes these problems? That’s the key, actually, to this blog.

 

A psychiatrist will usually put you on a medication that will be an anti-anxiety drug. There are plenty of them, but a few of the most common are diazepam and clonazepam, the generic names of Klonopin and Valium. Some physicians will also put people on antidepressants to help them manage ongoing anxiety. I would have to say that it had better be because the client is also depressed. For me, I think that taking an antidepressant for sporadic anxiety is not a good use of medication. But that’s my opinion, and I’m not a physician. Antidepressants are meant to help you feel better on a whole and with depressive states, which could contribute to helping slow down the anxiety, but doesn’t truly help the problem.

 

I have found that what really helps anxiety is getting to the fear behind the anxiety. Then focusing on what will make you feel safe in the face of that fear. The anti-anxiety meds are great to help you calm down while you are getting to the place where you can eliminate the triggers that cause the night sweats and heart palpitations. I’ve been there. I know.

 

When you have a trauma lingering in your past that has caused something like PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome), then a little trigger can cause the entire body to react in a fight or flight sequence that your brain isn’t responsible for. So, taking a pill to help your physiology get back to normal, so you can manage the thought process, isn’t a bad idea at all.

 

Hypnosis can really help in these situations. I know, a great deal of times I come back to saying this. I’m not trying to get you to come to me for therapy. You can go anywhere to get hypnotized. You can read a book or even get a hypnotic MP3. But these kinds of episodes need to helped in the subconscious mind.

 

New neuro pathways have to be forged to create healthy, solid patterns for the mind and body to respond to. Then they must be practiced for a considerable amount of time before a change appears in the physiological response of the body.

 

Anxiety is a real problem. Real answers are available if you are looking for them.

Prajaprati—Pregnant with Desire

Prajapati—Pregnant with Desire

 

In Hindu mythology, Prajapati is the Lord of all creation who impregnated himself by fusing elements of mind and speech to create the world. So, as we remember in Christian text that God created the world by speaking it into existence as well.

 

What is it about the spoken word that is so magical that it can bring substance into existence?

 

I’m intrigued by the idea that in both cultures, SPIRIT took MIND and SPEECH to create the universe. And juxtaposed to that, as a hypnotherapist, the main premise of REcreating your mental challenges is about getting to your spiritual self (the subconscious or observer-self) and speaking or directing new thoughts to your mind to create new behavior and a new you.

 

So, God who we know created us in its own image also gave us the same abilities as Spirit-God—to create by means of using our mind and words. This fascinates me and also makes me feel as though the world is just at the precipice of learning to use our God-given talents to create a world that is worthy of Spirit’s dwelling.

 

We talked about making a new mission statement yesterday. This idea of a mission is well within the bounds of seeing a new world. Eckhark Tolle’s book, “A New Earth” speaks of learning to live in the present and extrapolating the power of the Now can be, and will be, the power we have all been looking for to change our lives and the lives of those to come forward behind us.

 

Let’s all take the time to meditate on this idea: Living within each of us is the seed power of God to create! If we could learn to use this power, we could create a life that is peaceful, powerful, prosperous, and useful for the entire world.

Declaration of Principle

Declaration of Principle

 

Today at church, while I was reciting our ministry’s declaration of principle, I thought I really need to create a declaration of principle for my own life. What exactly am I about and what am I declaring with my own existence? Don’t I need to have that memorized in my subconscious mind and be executing it in every deed and action that I do daily?

 

I know that in business and in churches it is a great idea to create a declaration of principle and a mission statement that is precise and effective, not only for everyone in the corporation and business to get on the same page, but also to distill your brand and your ideas into concise thoughts and ideas, so your community can begin to live and work with unity toward your corporate goals each day.

 

So, I thought that I would share some thoughts about everyone who is reading today this doing a declaration of principle together. What thoughts would we want to be in our declaration?

 

  1. What kind of person I am?
  2. My vision of my personal development
  3. What I do by trade?
  4. What is my passion?
  5. And most importantly, how will I use all of what I am to effectively be a mover and a creator in the world?

 

So, my statement might read:

 

I am a strong, passionate, and authentic man who is not afraid to be sensitive and honest. I am by trade a Life Coach and Clinical Hypnotherapist, I teach my own version of yoga called Boga Fitness, I’ve written twelve books, I’m a vocal coach and a vegetarian chef.  I am a piano player, a singer and speaker.  And, most importantly I believe I’ve been put on this earth to help people find their personal paths to authentic change.

 

This statement might be something that I print out and add to my vision board or place on my bureau mirror to remind me daily of what I stand for and what I want to reflect each day to those I work with and my friends and family.

 

We need reminders of who we are everyday. So many factors affect us daily that can change our disposition from a calm and peace warrior being a crystal in the chaos, to suddenly being an angry child recreating an old behavior from our past. I need to be reminded of whom God see me as. I need to be reminded that I am not just a human being, but I am a spirit in a human body playing out my truth—daily.

 

So, developing a way to communicate this truth to myself every day is a great way to challenge myself to be a bigger and better human being.
