Suspended Animation

My blog comes to you from the heart of the majestic Drakensberg, this tranquil place has brought me a new revelation on how to be at peace all the time. What makes you feel miserable and unbalanced? Quite simply – your beliefs. You have an inner unconscious world that is just a question/answer place, you look around and ask an iMajestic peacenner question (What about? What if? What is going to happen? When?) and your unconscious mind finds the matching belief and says, “here you go” and then matches a feeling to it to back it up. I am not saying you do all of this consciously, in fact, you are pretty much unaware of what is going on inside of you. You are left with a feeling and a conscious sense of “what on earth is going on?”

There is an entire chorus of opinions going on inside of you and one commentator to speak for them all, and you, the obedient follower doing what you are told. Just let your mind wander for a bit, and you will get a conscious glimpse of what is going on in your unconscious mind, on a much smaller scale. You go forward in time, backwards in time, you prophesy doom, worry a bit, hope a bit and then circle back again, you go everywhere except now. As I said, all this is going on, on a much greater scale, unconsciously, and all you really get consciously is the feelings that result from the process. The trouble with beliefs is that we believe them to be true, and most of the time we don’t we know what we truly believe, we only know how we feel (if that).

So what is the big deal? Well, as far as the law of attraction is concerned we don’t attract using our conscious minds, but with our unconscious minds, so what goes on unconsciously is a very big deal as it determines what you get in your reality. If fact, and I am sorry to say this, your conscious mind is the part of you that only gets to experience what you are creating unconsciously, but has little to with the creating. This is not to say that we cannot consciously choose what we want to be creating with our unconscious minds, the thing is that we usually spend a few moments a day consciously directing our unconscious creating and the rest allowing our minds to run amok. If you had to compare the amount of time you spend making an effort versus just running on automatic you would find that you spend most of the time being dictated to rather than being in charge, and your dictator is pretty pessimistic. He/she has to be though, after all, he/she just wants you to be safe. What you know (however dismal) is safe, what you want (but have not yet had) is unknown and very unsafe (to your unconscious mind). All these beliefs and opinions that you have running your life are simply only what you think is true, but aren’t really.

If you want to experience peace and balance right now, then make a declaration that you no longer believe anything to be true and then experience the inner “??????” that follows. Everything you think is opinion, and if you suspend your opinions then it becomes very quiet inside, it also starts to feel really good. No opinions, no emotions needed to back them up. Try it, the next time you start to feel off-center, just remind yourself to put your opinions on hold and suspend your beliefs.

If you feel bad or good it is because of what you believe about something. Period. Who says that what you believe is really true anyway? It probably is only a matter of perspective anyway, and who decides that? Suspending beliefs (even if you don’t know what they are) gives you a blank slate and you can choose what belief to put there in that moment. This reality that feels so scary is nothing more than an opinion you hold, change that and you change the world.
