I’ve been doing A Course in Miracles, and started in on lesson eight today. Most of these concepts are ones I already apply to most of my thoughts and everyday life, but they are great reminders to pay attention to that pesky narrative that your thinking mind tries to impose on you. Today’s lesson isContinue reading “Living in the Past or Future”
Wonder is a theme word that has come up for me lately. It is such a joyous word, and I want to try and remember to create and approach new and old situations with a sense of wonder. This creates a sense of open-ness and expansion in the mind, instead of constriction. It opens your mind up to new possibilities, allowing it to be creative with new solutions and new ways of looking at the same problem.
I want to start out with a reminder that all type preferences are equal. No type preference is better than another, and we all use each preference type in our day to day life. The big reason that you would want to know your preference type and to understand it, is that if you are living your life in another preference type letter consistently, this will cause you emotional and mental stress, and this is what leads to burn out, whether it be in your job, or relationships or any other areas of life.
I finished reading the Surrender Experiment, by Michael A. Singer in one day. One. Day. It was SO good. My theory is that it was written by an INTP, and he is a really great storyteller. It really inspired me to set out to silence the constant chatter in my brain, and work on surrendering to what life throws my way.
I have been reading the book “Power versus Force” by David Hawkins, and it is fantastic. It’s an odd transition from muscle testing to the metaphysical, but it is based on scientific testing for proof and it is powerful. The book teaches that every person has their own level of energy calibration. Some people calibrate at a level of 500, which is love, and some calibrate at 50, which is shame. The highest that one can calibrate at is 1,000, and this level is called enlightenment, and only several people over the course of the universe have calibrated at that level; think Gandhi or Jesus. There are many levels that one can calibrate in between those examples, but the point is that we all have an energy calibration that we exist in and base our realities in.
