[1: 1,973 of 10,000] Collaborating With My Mind

Marisa Peer

I have an AHA moment after listening to therapist Marisa Peer’s TEDxKCS talk called To reach beyond your limits by training your mind. It’s mind-blowing and let me break it down for you, one because I need to ingrain it in my mind so I can get what I want and two because you can use it to your favor.

The mind wants 4 things and if I know this then I can hack it into my advantage. My mind is my intellect and the monkey that occupies my wild imaginations, the incessant thought that creates scenes after scenes in my head and the worst part is when I even fall to believe a lie.

1: My mind does exactly what it thinks I want in my best interest. Hack: I have to be very clear to tell my mind what I really want. If I want to become a best-selling author, then I have to tell my mind that I am a best-selling author and write to finish the book. If I’m in the zone, I also attract the right people into my orbit. (Side note: I’m loving the word ‘orbit’ lately!)

2: My mind is hard-wired to move me towards pleasure and avoiding pain. Any successful endeavor requires putting work. The only time it doesn’t feel like hard work is if I like what I’m doing, but the reality is there’s work to be done. Hack: Condition myself to link that I have massive pleasure doing hard work. It feels awful to exercise but it’s the only way for my muscles to get healthy so I got to enjoy while exercising.

3: My mind response to 2 things that affect my feelings, (a) what I picture in my head and (b) the words that I say to myself. Hack: Picture that I am doing it and use words that are positive to me. Stop with the low vibration thoughts. I have a brilliant mind and I better use it positively.

4.  My mind is programmed to what’s familiar. Hack: Make the unfamiliar familiar especially my self-beliefs. Familiarize myself to love my self, my work, my life and are grateful to everything that’s happening to me. Unfamiliarize me from procrastination and not good enough thoughts, move those words out of my vocabulary.

[1: 1,972 of 10,000] You Made Me Feel At Home Los Angeles

I was in Los Angeles, California early this month and I couldn’t believe that there was this light-good-vibe-aura feeling the moment I am in a taxi on the way to the hotel. Am I having my Don Draper moment? The air smells like beautiful dreams, except the corners of lingering weeds although users might be in dreamy state of another kind.

I am truly in love with the city. I could really imagine myself moving from Dubai to LA, so much so that I have sent a job application to an interior designer for the stars (haven’t heard from him, but I will soon, I have a good feeling about it, no not puffing weed here!)

I love the architecture, I love the beach, I love the mountains, the palm trees, and I love the fact that movies and television shows are made here. The entertainment world that I want to be part of. This motivates me to finish my novel and turn it into a movie one day.

Right now, dreaming of LA!

[1: 1,971 of 10,000] Beautiful Words From Caroline Myss

In Aphorism on July 29, 2019 at 12:40 PM

I’ve listened to Oprah Winfrey’s interview of Caroline Myss once again because my soul is searching for meaning and I couldn’t focus on what I need to do. My mind wanders and it’s asking for food that I couldn’t understand and ain’t providing.

Caroline Myss defined Spirit as…
The part of you that is seeking meaning and purpose.
The part of you that is drawn to hope.
Not to give in to despair.
The part of you that has to believe in goodness.
The part of you that feels like hope.
The part of you that feels like grace.
Oprah Winfrey added, “It’s the light of you.”

Have no judgments of your life,
No expectations, and
Give up the need to know what happens tomorrow.
Be fully present, and
Appreciate all that’s in your life right now.

Have no judgments of your life,
No expectations, and
Give up the need to know why things happen as they do.

Caroline and Oprah, combined thoughts,
Try
Give it your all
Give it your best
Not to be attached to the outcome
Surrender it
Let it go
To the power greater than yourself

Other beautiful words she shared:

  • If you have life, you have a purpose.
  • You are on the right path when you’re not put in a position to betray yourself.
  • Choose what will enhance your spirit and not what will drain your power.
  • Grace transforms a moment into something better.
  • A miracle is when God bends these laws for you in an intimate way.

Other prayers mentioned in the interview:

  • “Hover over me (God).” by St. Teresa of Avila
  • “Please enter where You (God) already abide.” From the book Illuminata by Marianne Williamson
