Moment of Inspiration: What to do When Feeling Confused


So, there you are feeling confused and probably uninspired. You might feel as if you are stuck in a mental or emotional box and have no clue about how to get out or move on. It could be that you have to make a decision and you don’t know the right decision to make. So, what do you do? How do you snap out of it?

The Solution:

Close right eyes and look for the confusion in your mind. Find out what it looks like, its shape, color, and whether it is mobile or static. How far is this confusion from you?

If you did the exercise right you will discover that whatever you came up with to represent the confusion was just your imagination. You imagined it into existence. You made it up. If you are lucky and came up with nothing, then you also discovered that confusion is just a thought–a believed thought that you have decided to title, confusion. Just because you don’t know what to do yet, doesn’t brand you confused.

Do not believe your thoughts. Observe the “confusion” as something separate from you. Know that it is not you. And you don’t owe it your attention. Don’t fight to let it go. Let it be but deny it your perception or interpretation; just let it float in your consciousness and if you stand your ground without mentally moving to join it, it will dissolve into obvium.

Remember that you are the one who is always aware of things, situations and thoughts. And you can remain as the awareness.

Do You Trust Your Thoughts, or Yourself?


It is easy to consider all our thoughts as our friends, because we have been with them for so long. However, much as some of these thoughts are either positive guides, creative ideas or progressing memories, there are others that appear in our consciousnesses with intent to bring us down.

The question is, how do you know which thoughts to trust? Some thoughts might be negative but guiding. How would you differentiate between thoughts that are positive and those that are disempowering? Furthermore, do you really need thoughts to survive? How often do you take action that is being guided by thoughts? To simplify, do you ever think about something at the very moment you are doing it? For the most part, you might be doing something and thinking about something else–the past or the future. For example, do you ever drive, if you drive, thinking, “Oh now I am stepping on my breaks. Now I am engaging another gear. Now, I am stopping….etc..” You get the point.

Note that our actions are retrieved from our memories. Our behaviors are retrieved from our subconscious minds. The conscious mind, which is also the doorway to thoughts is used to experience and express whatever is already in the subconscious. So, you realize that your consciousness doesn’t really require you to think, because you already have the programs and memories you need to operate. And if you need to replace these programs, this is when you think of new ways to improve them. This also implies that you don’t need to think to live. But you need to be alive in order to think. You don’t need to think to be. But you need to be in order to think. You don’t need to think to be conscious. But you need to be conscious in order to think. So, you come before your thoughts. Your thoughts can’t exist without you: meaning that you are superior.

Do you know that you even if you felt stuck and didn’t know what to do, you wouldn’t really need to think about it? The more peaceful way is to be thoughtless, empty, which is when your inner guidance will reveal your next course of action. And although this might come in a form of a thought, it will have an energy of purposefulness and inspiration about it.

Going back to the question in the title; Do you trust your thoughts or yourself? My conclusion is, I trust myself first, then my thoughts. What are your views?

Are You Positively or Negatively Disciplined?


You might be wondering how discipline can be negative or positive, or how this content can benefit you. However just like all other inner powers that we possess, discipline is susceptible to the law of duality. You can use it to upgrade or degrade your life.

To elaborate on this point further, I will pose a few questions for you to ponder. The questions are;

  1. Have you ever been so disciplined about anything yet failed to achieve your desired goal?
  2. What was your inspiration? Meaning, what drove you into disciplining yourself? Was it pain, fear of losing more of what you had, fear of other negative things happening, or was it the forecasted pleasure you believed was part of the result you sought?
  3. Would it have been “resistance” that drove your discipline?

If you were driven by pain, pleasure or fear, and failed, chances are that your actions didn’t add up to what was required. So, although you were disciplined you were probably not clear about what you really wanted, or maybe this is not what you really wanted–which attitude was reflected in your performance. Furthermore, when discipline is driven by resistance, chances are that the results are unsustainable–because whatever is resisted persists. Note that this is negative-adorned discipline.

For instance, let’s imagine that you decided to lose a few pounds and consequently started disciplining your eating habits and exercise routine. If you got disciplined to lose weight because you were resisting a heart attack, or you were resisting being fired from a job that required you to be a certain size, you were driven by resistance. This also means that what you didn’t want to happen drove you. However, if you decided to lose weight and got motivated by the desire for better health, your discipline was driven by what you wanted (This is positive-adorned discipline).

In one of these scenarios you focused on what you didn’t want, and in the second, you focused on what you wanted. Note that for the most part, manifestations match the motivations of the discipline.

So, how do you ensure that whatever you are disciplined about will reward you your desired end? Below are a few suggestions to be considered before getting disciplined to pursue any goal.

  1. Decide on what you want in positive terms. Make sure that it is what you really want. You must be clear about the results you want to manifest.
  2. Once you embark on disciplining yourself to pursue your goals, make sure that you focus on your inspiration…what you want. Regardless of what happens during this process, do not let the psychological mind derail you from your positive focus.
  3. Live in the end: meaning that as you take the steps towards achieving a set goal, feel as though you already have what you want, in the now. Make your then, now and your there, here.
  4. Go beyond just disciplining your actions and consider disciplining your mind to religiously focus on what you want. 

“Make your then, now and your there, here.”

~ Rev Ike

The next time you decide to get disciplined examine the inspiration behind your decision. Also, if you are one who is energized by productivity and achievement, make sure that your disciplines are based on positive inspirations.

The Sanity WarriorBecoming The Authority of Your Experiences, is a book I published recently and it will inspire you to examine the inner workings of your psychological mind and how you can transcend the related viruses in order to start living life on your terms.

When It feels as if Satan Has You in Stitches: What do You Do?


c11620eab249346478e7a77272f23833I recently heard the above phrase from Bishop TD Jakes, in one of his sermons about overcoming the works of darkness. And I thought the phrase perfectly describes some of my experiences, and I believe some of yours.

The first question is how would it practically feel if you had stitches created by Satan? To answer, I will use my own experiences.

At one point in my life I felt as if Satan had strategically positioned me where he saw my every move, altered all my plans, numbed my joy, chased away all my friends, created conflict in all areas of my life and delivered millions of tons of emotional pain in my heart: pain that I felt in places I never thought I had. Satan had me in emotional stitches.

I had it so bad that I visionalized him as a deliberately ugly guy with whiskers made of sharp bones, irregular sharp teeth of different sizes that had holes in them, red eyes, a tongue longer than 20 feet, a mouth filled, and dripping of brown super-smelly foam, hair with strands of red eyed snakes, and a body filled with bumps of many sizes and shapes. This fool was beyond ugly.

I also envisioned him whistling and celebrating every time I hurt.

At one point, I sat down to figure out how I could find him and then stop him from harassing my life, and….I found nothing. I realized that it was all in my mind…as a big thought that I had personally created. Then it struck me that although I couldn’t negate my struggles, my definitions of these hardships were my creations—thoughts I had believed and expanded on. And I knew that since these thoughts were in me, I had the power to just observe them without defining or creating more of them. I could actually just witness them without giving them more of my attention. And that was the beginning of my breakthrough.

Do you feel as if Satan has you in stitches? Subscribe to my blog and you will be notified when I post the continuation of this story.

Meanwhile, hang in there. Remember that no weapon formed against you shall prosper—if you just believe.

What is Authentic Success?|Weekly Inspiration


In my early 20s, I believed that success meant getting a good education, having a lot of money, making hundreds of friends and being in good health. Later on, I concluded that having good friends who were true, not only to themselves but also to me, was a good measure of success. But there came a time when I didn’t have money because I was stuck in more ways than one. All my friends started disappearing one by one. Even those I held onto thinking that they were friends weren’t: because I later discovered that they mocked, despised and judged me. So, I found myself alone. No friends, no money and in ill health.

On the onset, I concluded that I was a failure….I wasn’t successful. This conclusion almost drove me insane. The more I believed that I was a failure, the more emotionally and mentally weakened I felt. I went down the spiral of negative thinking and negative feeling until I drove myself into high levels of stress.

Then one day, my husband gave me my own dose of medicine. “You are not any of these things that you are feeling or thinking. They are in you. So be yourself without any of that.”

So, I started meditating and praying a bit longer than before. I decided that I was enough, with or without friends. I started forgiving myself and letting go of all guilt. I exercised with more focus. I changed my diet to a more plant based diet. I wrote in my gratitude journal daily. And within a short period of time I won myself back from the insanity that I had allowed to influence my emotional, and mental wellbeing.

Over the years, I have discovered that being in charge of how we feel and not letting external occurrences influence our emotional wellbeing is authentic-success. I believe it is a universal fact that’s true to every human being whether they acknowledge it or not.

Whether you are a trillionaire or zeronaire, feeling unconditionally good and being okay with everything without letting other people or circumstances influence how you feel is not subjected to anything external to you. You can do it whether you live on a tree or in a mason. In my humble opinion, that is authentic success. Authentic, because it is true to our nature. it is not based on anything external to us. It is an inbuilt attribute that’s only shadowed by our conditioning. Most importantly, it is easier to achieve any other type of success when you are emotionally well…when you feel good about life and about yourself.

In my book, The Sanity Warrior: Becoming the Authority of Your Experiences, you will be inspired by the many personal stories I share. You will learn thirteen practical and proven emotional intelligence strategies designed to help you release the grip from negative conditioning and then become the authority of your experiences.

6 Tools to Move From Struggling to The Realization of Set Goals:


“I can’t go on this way.” I told my mother. My business was struggling. I had been at it for over a year and still couldn’t make ends meet. I felt weak and absolutely defeated. I knew that I had to re-tap into my inner strength and keep focusing on what I wanted. But it was easier thought, and said than done. It took a toll on me to divert my attention from what was wrong to what I wanted. Yet I knew that I had to snap out of negative thinking and propel myself to focus on what I wanted. I had to clear my mind. I had to let go of fear of never coming out of my situation. I was sick and tired of struggling. So, I made a profound decision to refocus my attention to what I wanted.

Sadly, it was more straining to focus on what I wanted than what I didn’t want. Focusing on what I didn’t want seemed easier because it showed up more often than what I wanted to manifest. This illustrates how tricky the mind is. It propels us to focus on what we don’t want so that we are weakened, diverted from our true nature, and delusional. But if you are ready to experience better realities you do whatever it takes to release whatever is holding you back.

The questions are;

Þ  What are you going through?

Þ  Are you having a hard time picking up the pieces and moving forward?

The six tools below are some of the many, which can help one, move from struggling to the realization of set goals.

Perseverance

The video, explains the steps in detail.

1.    Examine what you are worshiping. What are you focusing on? What’s constantly dwelling in your mind? What do you give most of your attention? Whatever that is, that’s what you are worshiping.

2.    Focus on what you want. Write a list of everything you want and place it in visible areas in your house. Read the list as many times as you can, daily.

3.    Pray, meditate and trust that there’s a power within you that’s knows everything.

4.    Lose the doubt. Tap into your faith. Remember that doubt doesn’t move mountains. Faith does. Have faith that everything will eventually work out for your good. Trust God, Creator of whomever/whatever you believe is your higher power, to renew you.

“Doubt doesn’t move mountains. Faith Does.”

5.    Do not stress. Do everything you can to be peaceful. Take care of your mind. Meditate, do yoga, deep-breath, hike, walk, eat right—do whatever you can to pretend the mind from diverting your attention to what you’ve perceived as wrong. Also, avoid negative environment. Stay away from people who make you don’t elevate you. Clean your living and working spaces. Keep watch of what you feed your senses with.

6.    Keep at it. Do not give in to feelings of failure. Remember that thoughts of failure are just thoughts. The power you give them is what they get. Give them nothing, and they eventually die a natural death. Deny them your attention and they will soon disappear out of your consciousness.

Day 15 – Intensive Forgiveness Process with Advanced Hooponopono


Being hurt is part and partial of being human. Since we are all expressing ourselves as we are, everyone is doing the best they can with what they have within them. Sometimes, what people do triggers negative emotions or reactions within you because your inner programming projects their actions as offensive. Since we all run on programs in our inner worlds, it is impossible not to conflict or feel hurt by other people’s actions or inactions.

However, this very truth can liberate us from taking things personally and then generating negative emotions. It is up to each one of us to manage our inner worlds and make a conscious decision to limit our attention and give it to only those things that progress us. We have the power to perceive things as they are without assigning meanings or definitions to them. And I’m not saying that it is easy, but it is doable.

In the video below, we get to forgive everyone that has hurt us. This will free our minds, bodies and spirits and create more space within us to create more peaceful experiences.
