I first encountered this phenomenon in Israel 30 years ago.
Women kept on saying “Ein li koah…” which literally translated means “I don’t have strength, I don’t have energy.”
I remember being disgusted, appalled at the time. I had never heard anyone say anything like that, not in Hungary, where working around the clock is the norm.
Then, some 20 years later I heard myself say: No matter how hard I work, it is not working… Luckily I was listening to myself, and heard that I was lying.
The particular thing I was talking about not working: I didn’t put a lick of work into it, the resignation, the disempowerment, the fatalist view of “no matter how hard… ” came INSTEAD of work. I remember first being stunned, then cracking up in laughter: it was ridiculous to listen to myself lie.
Then, very recently, as recently as today, I heard the same thing. This time it came a little different: It’s too hard, I am entitled for some leisure…
Given that I am in the middle of this research, writing these articles, I put up a little doubt… maybe it’s not true. Let me see…
The thing, that my mind declared to be too hard, needed only about 10% of my attention, and that was enough for it to get the job done.
Wow, this is really interesting.
Maybe the Dark Side is telling us these suggestions to turn us all into people that don’t even TRY anything! I can see it on some of my students, the most sensitive ones, the empaths seem to be reacting to the same “tune.”
The the second tier, the 25’s (that is the numerical value of a soul correction) that never try anything, and claim that they are afraid. They failed before they tried… so why try. Do you see the common thread: don’t even try!
And then some of them look at the mental image of them succeeding in what they say they want to do, and get too scared. The Black girl that is as talented as anyone I have ever seen… afraid to succeed, so she won’t go for it.
The beautiful talented girl who has lived in the shadow of her brilliant father, then her brilliant husband, is afraid to strike out on her own… what if she succeeds? It will be hard work!
This phenomenon of the mind stopping you before you start, before you try, before you commit… this is the most important component of this Global Negativity, that you need to learn to identify as “not yours” and challenge yourself to do it anyway.
How? I have mentioned muscle testing, that is the first step.
The second step is strengthening both your will and your authentic desire for fulfillment.
Fulfillment is your birthright, but you need to earn it.
Without fulfillment life is worthless, life is dull, and not worth living. You are a living dead… and your pathway to it is to do something that your mind says you can’t do, you will regret if you do, that you don’t have energy to do.
This is what I have been doing, and fulfillment is my daily bread… Yummy.
But how do you strenthen your will and your desire?
Just like any capacity, the only way to grow something is to use it.
I hate to bring up the example of building muscle strength, because in my opinion if people put in as much effor into becoming an intelligent human being as they put into their looks, the Earth would not look the way it looks.
Nevertheless, building muscle is a great way to explain how you strengthen your will, how you strengthen your desire.
Through specific, targeted exercises. Just like a day laborer doesn’t build muscle even though they lift heavy stuff, or dig ditches, you won’t build will and desire by doing the say things the same way every day.
You need to challenge yourself, a little bit, every day.
The important aspects to look for: challenge, not the same, slightly outside of your comfort zone.
Drinking your coffee with your non-dominant hand, eating foods you have never tried, taking a way home that you don’t quite know how to navigate, learn to swimm if you can’t swim, breathe when you want to hold your breath, speak up when you want to hide… etc. etc. etc.
Practice it diligently. You need to be self-directed in this, there is no one that will guide you, cheer you on, or call you to account.
You will be on your own. Not part of the herd, but going against it.
Are you ready for that?
But more important than anything: watch out to the mind phrases “it’s too hard” “it’s not worth the effort” “no matter how hard I try” “I don’t know if I can do it” and “I can’t.” and use them as a buzzer, as a reminder, that going against those phrases will start you on the path of becoming a real intelligent human being.
