Hopeful is not one of the ways of being that are considered, traditionally, healthy and high vibration.
Why? Because hopeful, the way people use it, is a mind thing… while beingness is not a mind thing at all.
When you are hopeful, the way people use it, you are waiting for a benevolent universe, or some angel, or some deity to give you what you want… So hopeful, as the way people use it is a passive mindset, which is low vibration.
…not a pie in the sky with no foundation. You have the right to be hopeful because you did the work that was necessary to get you what you hope for.
Interestingly being hopeless is also my base, born with attitudes… so I can related. And so I can share how I have turned my hopeless into a minor and occasional mood, an incident, and hopeful my seed level of being.
The first thing I needed to notice that hopeless wasn’t just a mood… it was a worldview. It was a fixed worldview, a filter through which I viewed everything. I am observant, I am discerning, and I saw that people are basically bad, selfish, rejoicing in others misery.
And that made me think that ‘no matter what I do’ it is not going to get better.
And even though I had persistence through the roof, much more than anyone I knew, I still had the struggle with my base ‘Bach energy’, which is Gentian. Gentian is the resignation flower… I went from resignation to resignation… even though I was a high achiever. And I saw everything as hopeless, and the stories I most cherished were underdogs who succeeded in the face of unsurmountable odds.
I considered my tenacity a virtue… and maybe it was, but I was never happy.
And then I saw the roller coaster I have set myself on… and I hate roller coasters… I like smooth… I like even… and roller coasters and a life like a roller coaster is not like that.
So, as an innovator, I decided to innovate myself out of the life I had with its predictable valleys.
I started to observe myself minutely, so I could catch where the switch of resignation comes… and what triggers it, where I am looking when it triggers.
I saw that any difficulty I encountered I labeled it as ‘It’s over’… and stopped looking.
I started to hang in there and keep on looking. And 93% of instances, and I have tens a day of those, if I kept on looking, eventually I saw that it was not hopeless, that there was a way to take the project to winning.
When I said ‘It’s over’ just another way to say ‘hopeless’, I looked in the mind. Reality DARED TO DIFFER.
Now, what do you want to take home from this?
Maybe the most important learning is that whatever you see: you see it through a filter. And only looking long and without an agenda, without wanting a different view, without needing anything will remove the filter.
Agenda, wanting, needing will add an additional filter… so it is important to look and not want anything.
Allow… Allowing is a state of being where your agenda isn’t active. The cat pulling back its claws. The dog stopping baring its fangs. The hardest thing for a human, maybe any human to do… It’s like a small death when you stop wanting to assert your will.
…or more accurately, temporarily it falls away. Temporarily. It is important to remember, or you’ll expect reality to show its face readily: it won’t.
You will still see 99.99% of what you see through a filter… and momentarily without one.
Most people cannot even drop their filter when I show them something… so don’t thing it’s easy, or natural, or that you do it.
Your results will be consistent with the number of times you see through no filter so your action can be accurate.
I measure this in your astuteness measure… 1-100. Humanity’s overall astuteness is one quarter of a percent. My students’ is 1%…
No one has been able to allow… even to get what allowing is. This is why I am writing this article. To make it easier.
The genius of last century physician, Dr. Edward Bach was to find 37 energies in plants and on in water that match people’s attitude to life.
I used Gentian, the resignation flower to remain gloomy… To blame my parents. To prove to them that they were wrong. Cut my nose in spite of my face.
…you can start developing a strategy to neutralize it, so you can become all you can become… Or you won’t.
A disproportionate majority of people I have tested use the energy of ‘no matter what I do’ to remain the same. So if you don’t want to spend the $30, it is a 70% safe bet that you use that energy… and start neutralizing that.
What do you need to do? You need to notice when you don’t want to do what you can see you could do… You’ll notice resistance. And You’ll hear the voice saying: ‘I don’t want to’ or occasionally it lies and says ‘I can’t’ or ‘I don’t know how’.
And then stop, but stay with it… wait. Allow the voice to rattle in your head… Don’t want to make it go away, just let it do what it wants to do. It can’t make you do anything… It is YOU who makes you do anything, not the voice.
And when it gets tired, and it will, Guaranteed!, then do what you were resisting doing.
Never believe the voice.
We could say that each Bach Energy has a voice and a sentence or two associated with it. None of it is true. EVER.
Imagine that I hold a knife to your throat. Imagined? Good. Now I ask you to take your pants off… Did you take it off, or the fear did? Or me?
It was you, wasn’t it?
The same is with everything.
OK, if you want me to muscletest your Bach linchpin energy, you can.
