One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people.
He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, freedom and faith.’
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?’
The old man simply replied, ‘The one you feed.”
What is the difference? Is energy and our spirit the same thing? Are we using different words to point to the same thing?
As we know, science and spirituality are merging and coming closer and closer together in their theories or thoughts and beliefs. We are alive at this time, to experience a significant change in the world where there is a coming together of different thoughts, different disciplines and people.
One of Einstein’s great insights was to realize that matter and energy are really different forms of the same thing. Matter can be turned into energy, and energy into matter. E=MC2
So does this point to our physical body as matter, can be turned into energy?
And where is the source to this energy?
Many describe it or point to it as a universal life force, or source energy.
Good health is the key to a happy and contented life. If we think of
health we make health our companion. If we think of our bodies as
weak and diseased, the power of our own negative
thought-conditioning is prone to be out pictured in our bodies as
weakness and disease.
It is said that we draw to us the conditions we are predominantly
thinking about. In what has become a classic, author Earl
Nightingale refers to what he calls “The Strangest Secret,” which
is: “We become what we think about.”
He goes on to say that it’s not really a secret at all because it
has been repeated throughout the ages in different ways. In the
book of Proverbs we read, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
Among many references to this “secret” Jesus said, “According to
your faith, be it done unto you” and “As you sow, so shall you
reap” and “Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find;
knock and it shall be opened unto you.”
What if the words you speak have an energy that others can feel?
Do the words we speak affect the energy and lives of those around us?
Today I have the amazing Jeanne Marshall on Truly Alive radio to discuss the Energy of Language…
Jeanne is an amazing woman who has helped thousands of people find their power within them. Her wisdom shines a light for all of us.
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
In all of the complexities of life, there is no simpler, no more profound truth.
Live in this and all will flourish!
If we just did this…love…..love ourselves…with no judgement, condemnation……
And loved others….with no judgement or persecution…Love them for EXACTLY who they are no matter what!
Then what would our world be like…just this one thing???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Isn’t science wonderful?!
Did you know the chemicals that make up our emotional feelings only stay in our blood for 90 seconds? 90 Seconds!
We all have the power to cycle out of worry, anger or fear…here’s how.
Feel how your “mood” or “attitude” or “feeling” actually feels in your body.
Are you calm? Peaceful? Happy? Is life feeling pleasant right now?
If not, then REST, put yourself on PAUSE for 90 seconds. STOP whatever you are doing.
Breathe. Breathe again. Breathe once more.
Then shift your thoughts to anything or anyone you love and allow your chest to relax: music, sunsets, mountains, oceans, dogs – and keep picturing and thinking and breathing for 90 seconds.
This isn’t a game, this is physiology. You must be truly engaged with your emotions for this to work…and it does work!
All You Have to Do is Breathe!
These have been my encouraging words for years now. When dealing with a crisis or a difficult interaction, or experience and we are talking about it and feeling overwhelmed and sad and angry, all we really have to do is breathe. All these emotions come up and take over our bodies and our minds. Sometimes we even feel like we are going crazy, we feel we are out of control. And we probably are!
We have let these emotions, which are energy, run wild in and around our bodies. The energy is negative and affects our body. The mind then feeds off this energy and thus creates more thoughts, which in turn creates more negative emotion and more negative energy all around us. It is a feeding frenzy, creating more and more of the emotion and thought we don’t want. We feel like we are caught in a wheel out of control and can’t get off.
What an amazing experience I had yesterday on Truly Alive Radio with Yolaine Stout. We were discussing spiritual solutions to healing and depression more specifically.
Yolaine had 3 episodes of major depression and each one ended in a miraculous physical healing also. How does that happen? (Listen to her story on Truly Alive radio to the right on this page).
I believe when we are in a tug of war between our spirit self and our ego self . When we are in perfect alignment with our spirit self and all that is, God, universe whatever you want to call it, miracles happen. This is a natural occurance when we are in this state of being. I believe in miracles every moment. I believe we were born to express our God self through our physical experience.
When we become distracted by our thoughts and our mind, we are unable to hear our true self speaking to us.
