What story are you ‘running’?

Power Vs Force

The ‘story’ we tell ourselves is the ‘story’ we live by. Our sub-conscious mind is listening.

In recent times, I’ve been acutely aware of various ‘stories I’ve been ‘running’. For a while I believed them to be true. They are from my perceived impression of the world about me. For a while, I didn’t question this, challenge it! What if it isn’t true? What if an opinion from another person is just that, an opinion? What if certain perceived events do not mean what I attach to them?

I noticed my energy dropping over a period of a few weeks. I started moving from love and gratitude to anger, fear and apathy. Worse still, at times I felt guilt and shame.

Dr. David Hawkins in his book, ‘Power Vs Force’ talks about the ‘energy fields of consciousness’. In his research he describes a numeric value relating to levels of consciousness. Dr. Hawkin draws on the work of Dr. Goodheart and his work with kinesiology and muscle testing. Dr. Hawkin did calibrate various levels of consciousness by testing a wide group of individuals.

Dr. Hawkin’s ‘map of consciousness’ comprises a ‘God-view’, ‘Life-view’, ‘Emotion’ and ‘Process’. He then describes an associated ‘level of consciousness’ and numerical value (20-1000) where 250 is considered neutral.

By way of example, a lower level of consciousness is grief. The ‘God-view’ of grief is disdained, the ‘Life-view’ is a tragedy, The ‘Emotion’ is Regret and the process by which we enact the emotion is despondency. Dr. Hawkin has calibrated grief as ’75.

Comparatively, a higher level of consciousness is Love calibrated as 500! The ‘God-view’ of love is loving, the ‘Life-view’ is benign (unconditional love), the ‘Emotion’ is reverence and the process is revelation.

So, where is your level of consciousness. Where is your mind?

We know the sub-conscious cannot differentiate fact from fiction. It will believe your conscious mind and seek to manifest more of the same.

So, how do we break this cycle?

The first step is becoming aware. We need to fly high enough to see the bigger picture. Problems appear much bigger from the ground up!

This is not always easy and often needs outside help, i.e. a counsellor, trusted mentor etc.

Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work is heavily founded on elevating our vibration, re-calibrating our conscious maps and transcending lower frequency / vibration states of being.

This also forms the foundation of the Million Dollar Wellness INTERN program where discovering an elevated mindset can help elevate your practice.

So, I ask you once again. What story are you ‘running’? What is it you believe is your ‘winning formula’?

My stories go something like this.

‘I have made some errors thru-out my career, some of which have created disruption. At times I ‘feel’ guilt and shame and want to shrink and stay ‘small’.’

Guilt and shame are very low levels of consciousness leading to self-blame, humiliation and worse.

I can choose to replace this ‘story’ with this.

‘I am not defined by the opinions of others. I am wise and powerful beyond my own beliefs. I back my- self and accept my flaws (learnings) are not who are I am at my core. I attract and inspire high levels of consciousness around me. I choose to shine and share my incredible magic.’

‘Wise’ and ‘inspired’ are much higher levels of consciousness leading to optimism and understanding.

When my sub-consciousness here’s this story, it is more likely to manifest more of the same.

My good friend and mentor, Marcus Bird developed the concept, ‘Positive Delusion’, which he has kindly given me permission to use in the Million Dollar Wellness program. Marcus says, we need to positively delude ourselves of a story that resonates at a higher vibration. Eventually, our sub-conscious will ‘catch-on’ and start emanating at this frequency.

The work of a health professional is not an easy road. At some point it is inevitable there will bump. You will be challenged, despite your best intentions and efforts, clinically, logistically and professionally.

Don’t be stopped! Keep being a ‘stand’ for yourself and your practice no matter what. Subscribe to a positive delusion story that resonates at a higher level of consciousness. Remember, wherever you maybe it is neither ‘good’ nor ‘bad’, rather an ‘is’. Whilst there are descriptions, resist the temptation to add meaning over and beyond this. You are a ‘good’ person, that has never changed. It’s just about re-writing the story.
