Have you reached your full potential?

How often do you ponder on any new experiences that we would like to create in your life? And similarly how easy for you is to stop doing and engaging in things that make you feel bored and fed-up?

The clues that can help us reveal our true potential are our secret  hopes and dreams.

Our minds are active in protecting us from pain of disappointment and  will always err on the side of caution, sticking to what it knows and has already experienced, however mediocre that is.   “You’re too old, too young, (fill in the blank) to do that!”, “you haven’t got the right skills, qualifications blah blah blah”. Maybe you recognise this in yourself.
The danger is that this protective mechanism can turn into cynicism  if too many dreams are broken, which could ultimately take away the joy of life, and in extreme cases the will to live. One has to question the idea of depression, because with this understanding, it’s not an ‘illness’ that befalls us but rather a net-effect of this problem.

My solution to this is an exercise that I take my clients through, which is a simple one:

Imagine what you would be ideally doing first in your personal and then in your professional life in 3 years time? Immerse yourself in that imagination, however crazy in may seem, see it , feel it , maybe even taste it.

By creating a new reality in your minds eye, you open your heart to a new possibility. This then temporally shifts you out of your conditioned mind, with all this pre-programmed, automated responses that would normally shut that dream down. Looking at this potential – YOUR POTENTIAL LIFE – will uncover and  reveal all the social conditioning and emotional charges that are blocking that potential. By doing this exercise, even on your own, you will see those belief systems in the cold light of day and become more conscious of those ridiculous and redundant reasons why ‘you can’t live that life’. You will be able to exam them through a more truthful lens that opening your heart can bring to you.

Homeopathic remedies, if matched to these conditional beliefs will eliminate these energetic mental, emotional and even physical blocks (For example you will feel more energised when planning  what you want to do) to your true potential. To give some examples :

  • Shale, a mineral composite compromising of layers of shells represents doing things the way we’ve always done things – holding onto traditions that we were thought up by people who are now dead (think of shell representing security for the defenceless creature inside and the layers of shells once occupied by now deceased creatures), and therefore is usually an outmoded way, not relevant to the desires and potential that people have today.
  • Human ovary – which as an egg just simply mean human potential. This remedy tackles the block to the lack of recognition or engagement with your true potential and useful for people whose dreams were blocked when they were young adults or teenagers – they we not allowed to explore their own ideas or dreams, and were maybe funnelled into something that met the expectations of the adults around them.
  • Organophosphate represents artificially hot housing a young person to become something that is not authentic. When this person has to go out in the world without the artificial support, if they have not sufficiently connected with their own inner convictions and understandings will wilt like a hot house flower in the temperate climate. There has been some social commentary about the Millennial generation now entering the workplace and seeking the reassurance that they got from their families as their inner resilience,  that comes from having to learn things in the face of personal challenges, is lacking.
  • Strychnine represents believing that you are fated to have a limited life – we see this often in society in the form of ‘poverty consciousness’ as an example that pervades a family or society – it is often cited that lottery winners can squander the money quickly if they are in that mind-set.

I hope that I have offered a new perspective that is challenging, but also liberating. The message that I like to convey, is that we should not be seeking to fix or improve ourselves because:

Our full-potential, and ability to attain it, is already in-built into our systems.

Instead, we have to identify and liberate ourselves from those blocks to that true potential to live the life of our dreams…

Where to find the solution to your health problems

untitled

Many people who have chronic health conditions have spent time and money looking everywhere for the elusive right diet, right pill, regime, right exercise which can help for a while, but…

to find a permanent source of well-being, you have to look in the least expected place:

YOU are the source of your own HEALING POWERS, in the same way,

YOU are the source of your own HAPPINESS

YOU are the source of your own SECURITY

YOU are the source of your own CREATIVITY and therefore ABUNDANCE

YOU are the source of your AUTHORITY and VALIDATION

YOU are the source of  LOVE and COMPASSION for yourself.

YOU are the source of your own WISDOM and INTELLIGENCE

Because YOU are the source of your own vital energy, it is your life force.

This is really good news, because your fundamental well-being is really not dependant on external factors after all and you realise that you can be really well, happy and secure  regardless of your external circumstances and what is available to you.

The ONLY question remains is: what is disconnecting you from your own source of energy and thereby transforming your experience? What are you inadvertently doing that is taking you away from what will make you WHOLE and COMPLETE?

Homeopathy understands this mechanism, and so it’s only purpose, in times when the client is chronically unwell, is to endeavour to re-connect you with you own innate healing powers. We do this by working out how the person is inadvertently disconnecting themselves usually due to the conditioning, life situations and genetic makeup. We then find a remedy that matches this patterning or tendency in order heal it and thereby enabling the reconnection with your Vital Energy to occur. The net result is not only the physical problems healing, but that you generally feel better in yourself.

Here are some typical blocks to self-connection:

When you feel emotional or physically bad, what thoughts do you have?

What are you saying to yourself? Are you criticising the way you are? Judgement is a form of self-rejection, which disconnects you with yourself.

What do you think needs doing that is coming ahead of your current needs and desires? When we put goals before ourselves, we disconnect from ourselves.

What trouble are other people causing for you? This is a sign that you’ve inadvertently given others authority over you. Be your own point of reference and authority and thereby you reconnect with yourself.

What do you believe you haven’t got to be ok? We can compromise ourselves in the pursuit of things we think we lack, such as money, friendship, love.

When we start to become aware of how we are compromising ourselves, due to the belief that the outside world is more important than we are, we have a choice:

“Do I want to play the victim or do I want my power back?”

If you want your power – which is your life force – back then YOU have to the most important thing in your life. In order to do this we have to listen inwards not outwards as our first priority.

CLUES that will let you know whether you are connecting with yourself and thereby your life-force:

When you are thinking or doing something that makes your heart sink –  this is your natural alarm signal that you are disconnecting from your life force – your body always tells the truth.

When you are connected, you feel either passionate, ‘in the moment’, excited, interested, loving, peaceful – these are the results and not cause of being connected to your life force – it is therefore your natural state.

How it works in practice:

A great example of this, with a timely reminder that Apple was recently proclaimed the most profitable company in the world due to its most desirable products. The late founder and visionary behind Apple, Steve Jobs, who was known for his counter-culture background  interestingly spent a year in India in his youth. India is the mecca for spiritual seekers, whereby it is encouraged to look within in mediation, and notice dispassionately what our thoughts are up to and what we would normally be compelled to act upon. Once these thoughts (which are only thoughts, with no actual substance) are seen through, our ‘true nature’ which precedes those thoughts is seen. And that is the immense power, wisdom and love that we really ‘are’. So, Steve Jobs is one of many examples of how each of us could see beyond current constrained thinking, by thus tapping into his own creativity – which is one of the many functions of our vital energy which develops bigger and better ideas.

One simple Principle to ensure Health, Happiness and Success:

Live your life through LOVE, not FEAR.

tesla

20th and 21st century scientists have discovered that everything has a frequency, because everything is made of energy. The fear frequency has a lower vibration to the love frequency and so therefore matter will be affected accordingly.

There are fundamentally two types of emotions that we experience – the negative ones such as anger, hate, anxiety, sadness are bourne out of fear. Conversely, good feelings such as excitement, happiness, bliss are bourne out of love – which enables true acceptance and harmony.

The fear frequency makes us feel disconnected, alone, out of balance, uncooperative, destructive.  This becomes reflected in our bodies, as we develop dis-ease and aging.

The love frequency, conversely, not only enables better health, because the cells in our body act in a more balanced, functional and cooperative way (cells communicate with one another when healthy), but through higher frequency energy we gain clearer, deeper insights into overcoming any problems that we are experiencing.

So here are some examples of how you can orientate yourself to live your life through LOVE, not fear:

  • Whilst driving, you keep within the speed limit because you LOVE to feel safe and cooperative with other drivers, not because you FEAR that the speed cameras will get you.
  • You clean the house, because you LOVE providing a pleasant environment for your family, not because you FEAR what the visitors are going to think.
  • You cook a nutritous meal, because you LOVE to nurture your kids, not because you FEAR that they are going to lack nutrition and therefore fail to grow.
  • You practice reading with your child, because you LOVE seeing them develop and share an activity with them, not because you FEAR that they will be illiterate.
  • You go to work because you LOVE earning money and being productive, not because you FEAR that you may not be able to pay the mortgage if you don’t.
  • You run your business because you LOVE providing solutions to clients, not because you FEAR that you’re lacking income.
  • You meet up with friends, because you LOVE their company, not because, if you don’t, you FEAR that you’ll be lonely.
  • You take the medicine because you LOVE restoring your health, not because you FEAR that you’ll remain sick if you don’t.
  • You LOVE feeling tired because it’s your cue to cut yourself some slack and enjoy a rest, rather than FEARing that you won’t get it all done.
  • You LOVE being ill, because it gives you and others the chance to look after you, rather than FEARing that there is something wrong with you.
  • You LOVE being critised, because someone cares enough about your well-being and wants to be part of your life, rather than FEARing that you can’t defend yourself.

Someone who I feel gives a good example of this principle is Wilko Johnson, the Dr Feelgood musician. In January 2013 he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given less than a year to live. But because he chose to LOVE his life more than he FEARED his death, he not only managed to survive it without chemo-therapy, he is positively thriving to this day. It is common for many patients to decline in health after such a diagnosis, because usually fear dominates the person’s reaction. The problem is that in our culture we have elevated science to the status of a substitute god, all seeing, all knowing, which then gives it the power of suggestion.  However, during the time of diagnosis, Wilko described in a radio interview how he walked out of the doctors surgery and everything looked alive and vibrant. He had decided to use this predicament as an opportunity to play music with musicians that he admired and felt he had a good bargaining counter. And that is what he is doing to this day, despite having recently had an operation on the tumour, is healthy enough to continue his LOVE of life.

You can start to see that even the most seemingly negative scenarios can always be loved by you, contrary to some of our inbuilt beliefs. The important point to make here is that in truth you can never change your circumstance – which is what we normally try to do, but fail – See How to Eliminate Stress from your Life. This is because our mind, due to the power of it’s imagination, can lead us to believe that there can be a moment other than this one.

When do you remember to practice this principle? When your heart sinks – this is an indication that you have disconnected with your life-force, because you are living in fear and not in love. See Let Your Heart be Your GPS.

So when we do live through love, we reconnect with our innate healing powers, insights and wisdom and power. This is how I work with my clients: to find out in which areas are difficult to love due to conditioned or limited beliefs. Once it is matched with the remedy, the patient finds a new positive perspective, however bad the situation seems to be and this is what allows healing to commence.

Contrary to popular belief, no one has the power over the outcome of your life, except you – not by doing anything, as we commonly believe, but by the lens that we hold up to the world. We can either look through the eyes of FEAR or through the eyes of LOVE.

But, don’t take my word for it – find out for yourself.  I’d be interested to hear how you get on: Drop me a line at meikelawrence@hotmail.co.uk

Let your heart be your GPS

I heard a joke the other day, recommending a new kind of SatNav for the elderly: To tell them how to get there and why they went there in the first place! I asked myself, “Do we really need to know why we want to get somewhere? – maybe we can only know once we are there”.

To explain: does you heart sink when you have do something you don’t want to? Kinesiologists have quantified this phenomenon whereby harmful or negative things and thoughts can deplete the electromagnetic sphere which we embody – homeopaths call it the vital force. In other words, we deplete our life force every time we’re focusing on something that doesn’t make us happy.

How many times a day do you tell yourself that you ought to do something? Maybe this is your conditioning that is speaking and not the real you. Maybe you don’t actually need to do it to be happy. To test this out for yourself, spend a day by asking yourself “What do I really feel like doing?” and do that instead. Allow activities that attract you naturally to become the centre of your life. See how the day pans out and evaluate whether you feel more energised and have been more productive. You may surprised! When we live through our heart and not exclusively our head, we tend to experience more vitality. We all know that when you do what you love, we become energised, and it is irrelevant how much energy you put into it. And when we have more vitality, we become healthier.

One last thought: Life is not about arriving safely to your death-bed

Are you getting what you want out of life?

“All the world’s a stage and we are merely players” William Shakespeare

Do you ever feel that your life is like Ground Hog Day – the same story, grappling with familiar problems and issues, with different characters from time to time? The film starring Bill Murray illustrates beautifully how his character finally realises that it is he who has to change who he is to get what he wants. The world gives back to you according to the type of person you are choosing to act out. We get into difficulties, when we get stuck it that character, as if we have no alternative. We then feel, like Bill Murray’s character initially had, trapped and despairing.

When we, however, use the power of imagination, we can mentally climb out of that trap. We realise that we are indeed just actors that have an infinate range of roles at our disposal – the only limit is our imagination. Dawn French, writer and comedian recently spoke of how when she wanted to try something new in her life, she would tell herself for example “I’m the type of person who writes books” and would then successfully do so. Salvador Dali’s success was probably enhanced by writing in his diary every day – “I am such an amazing genius” ‘How ridiculous’ I hear you say, but guess what? the world agreed with him. This redefines who you think you are – Your own inner perception is key to the outcomes in your life.

So what stops us from using this amazing, life-enhancing skill that can secure success and well-being? Because we are so convinced by the illusion of being imprisoned in our current role which is due to our survival instinct (fear), social and family conditioning. But the beliefs we are working with, on closer examination, are not actually based on fact! This is why I qualified to use a simple visualisation technique called The Mace Energy Method with clients to help identify and then eliminate false negative beliefs about themselves, which have a strong effect on their choices and perceptions.  

Like discarding an old coat and buying a new one, once you step out of their negative identities, you can chose and ‘try on’ more positive and life-enhancing roles.  Once day I imagined I was encrusted with valuable jewels – and people were telling me all day how much they valued me! Try this for yourself, suspending all dis-belief, and you will be amazed.
