The “New Normal” We are Now Living In And How To Make It Work For You

 

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

It is a fact that we are living in a time of extremes. That doesn’t mean that only bad things are happening, or even good things for that matter. But, that we are living in a time when really BIG things are happening. We can no longer separate the big things that are happening in our world from ourselves and our everyday lives and our families.

Yes, our world is changing in ways we have never seen and in ways we are not used to. I mean, we don’t have a good guide, or a good blueprint, or a good textbook. And, the significance of this is that we need to think and act differently. More so now than at any time in the past.

There is a trigger for this change that we are seeing now that makes this so unlike the times of our parents or our grandparents.

There is a convergence of three powerful cycles of change that we were not taught about in school.

These three cycles of change that are staring us in the face right now…this window of time where a cycle of conflict is converging with the climate cycle and the economic cycle…well, that is a recipe for tremendous change.

For us it means that we are not going to stop that cycle…our worlds and our lives are changing.

This is the new normal we are living in. And, because we’ve been so conditioned in the past to look at the world we’ve known and say “This is not the ways things should be,” it makes it hard for us to embrace something that is new.

But, now is the time to get honest with ourselves. We’re going to see a shift in our weather, we’re going to see volatile economies. And through that volatility in the way people work together and embrace that, is how we will move forward and begin to solve our problems…rather than trying to do everything we’ve done in the past that led to our problems to begin with.

And, a very new discovery that has caught the medical profession off guard is the fact that our ability to embrace change is directly linked to our heart and our brain and the connection that the two of them make together.

The quality of that communication determines the chemistry that’s released into our bodies, our anti-age hormones, our immune response…is it strong or is it weak? And, that is driven largely by emotion and the way we feel about our world…our perceptions.

Are you beginning to see what an important role the heart plays in all of us moving forward in a healthy way? So important in fact, that scientists have coined a term “the little brain inside the heart.”

And, this little brain inside the heart has the ability to function independently from the brain in our head. It can remember on its own, it has its own way of thinking, its own way of learning, its own way of feeling and ~ it can be connected. In a way that will empower us and open the door to a multitude of really extraordinary experiences.

But, until we learn how to marry the wisdom of our heart with the utility of the mind, any information we receive will remain “just information” in the clutter of our mind that we soon forget.

However, when we establish this connection, it’s a hotline to our sub-conscious mind where we must communicate in a healthy way if we’re going to change unhealthy patterns in our lives.

Yes, it is only through reconnecting our heart to our brain that we will be able to solve the problems of this “new normal” that we are living in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conditioned Thinking – Quick Tip #26

You have behaviours, beliefs and attitudes hardwired into your subconscious mind as children. Once programmed into the subconscious, they control your biology for the rest of your lives….unless you figure out a way to reprogram them. Start to let go of those limiting beliefs…the ones that no longer serve you. You will find it very freeing.

Who’s Running The Show? – Tip #10

Your thinking is 10% conscious and 90% sub-conscious!

What this means is that your free-will thinking part of the brain…the 10% part that allows you choice…your manual control…that 10% is not really in control.  Your sub-conscious, that is, all the stuff that has been programmed, or hardwired into your system often, when you were children, is your Auto-pilot.  Since your mind is conditioned by the past, that sub-conscious part kicks in when your manual pilot is not paying attention.  And, who do you think is running the show?
