The Peace That Comes From Retraining Our Minds
“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” ― Wayne Dyer
I train my brain all the time. To learn, but more to unlearn. To accept, and often to let go. To process the fact that my heart is actually the “smarter” organ – which, factually, my brain doesn’t object to but my ego does.
For this training, I find inspiration through a divers range of sources – many of which I have mentioned in previous blog posts (such as this one, this one, and this one). In this post, I’ll share some of the sources that have inspired me most recently:
The Sacred Science
I have mentioned Nick Polizzi’s book, The Sacred Science: An Ancient Healing Path for the Modern World, before but I hadn’t read all of it at that time. I now have finished the book, and my urge to recommend it has grown even stronger. Not because the information in it was so mind blowing, but because of a sort of opposite effect which might sound odd. While reading the book, it felt like Nick’s stories and the shamanic wisdom he shared on those pages, connected with something deep inside of me. It felt like a remembering of things that I’ve already learned – lifetimes ago. It’s that connection, that click with what’s deep inside of me, that made it such an amazing experience to read The Sacred Science back-to-back.
To make sure the most important lesson from that book comes well across, though, it bears repeating: the way we generally look at our health, through the goggles of Western medicine, works great in case of an emergency – in all other cases we ignore the holistic view of our mind-body processes and therewith miss out on great healing possibilities. Just read Nick’s book, and you’ll see what I mean.
Hay House World Summit
Until 20 May 2018 “The World’s Largest Health and Wellness Event” takes place, FOR FREE, online. It is the sixth annual Hay House World Summit. (If you read this at another time: there will likely be a World Summit again next year!) I have to admit, the amount of information and inspiration that’s available through this World Summit may have an effect of overwhelm. Thankfully, that is probably why the organizers themselves came up with the “Ask the Universe” feature. You can either click on this button in one of their announcement emails, or under the “Current Release” menu at the World Summit’s main page. In either case, it (uhm, the Universe) will choose a lesson for you and take you straight to that page. There, the Universe fixed it!
Alternatively, you can look up some of my favorites:
Gregg Braden – Deep Resilience: Learning to Thrive from the Inside Out!
Sandra Anne Taylor – Using the Akashic Records to Program the Future You Really Want
Nick Polizzi (!) – Everything Can Heal You
Kyle Gray – Raise Your Vibration With The Angels
A Course In Miracles
The last mention, of Alan Cohen, is tied to my latest fascination. After having heard people talking about this book for years, I have finally decided to plunge into it myself. As Alan has quoted in his description, though, it is “the only book that has been purchased by millions but read by only a few.” So let’s see how long I last, shall we?
The link with Alan Cohen is that his explanatory book to ACIM, A Course in Miracles Guidebook, gave me the final nudge.
What ACIM is about? So far, for me, mostly about the choice between love and fear. About trusting the choice of love, which I “coincidentally” already touched upon a few weeks ago.
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll be returning to my (un)learning process now, and I hope to have inspired you to explore some of that process too. Peace out.
