Does your past make up your future?
Recently I've been writing about the coming Millennia, year 2020 and beyond, and it's interesting when you look back to see where you've come from as to how vast the possibilities are to where you are going. It got me to thinking about the choices we make and how it makes up our future.
Newton's First Law of Motion states:
"Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that
state of motion unless an external force is applied to it."
Also called the "Law of Inertia" and pioneered by Galileo, this statement basically says "you keep getting what your getting unless you make a change." It's simplistic in concept and yet astounding in application. Over the years I've helped many people struggling to change their life with anything from bad habits such as smoking, overeating, nail biting, hair pulling and even negative thinking. It all comes down to "Behavior Modification" which is the basis of hypnosis. You have to make a change in order for something to change. My chef friend says "You have to break an egg to make an omelette."
In order to facilitate a change you first need to recognize a change needs to be made! Even if life is going pretty good, could it be better? The answer is always "yes." I know people who are extravagantly wealthy and yet, I know, they would like to have a change in their life.
If we look at even a bigger picture of ourselves, and we consider the concept of past lives and future lives, what are we doing now could be a direct correlation of something we've done in our past. With my over 20 years of work in the field of Past Life Regression, I've seen over and over again with my clients (and myself!) how some habits, behaviors, talents, fears and illnesses are brought about by the memories of our Past Lives. We have literally carried the baggage from one life time to the other!
Consider this; What would it take to make a change, now, to make a better life in this lifetime and how would that change effect future lifetimes? It would be significant! We know any small change in behavior changes the outcome as time increases. For example if you are a smoker and you quit smoking:
After 1 hour your blood pressure starts to reduce.
After 12 hours carbon monoxide level returns to normal.
After 1 day the risk of heart attack begins to decrease.
After 3 days the nicotine levels in a person's body are depleted.
After 1 month a person's lung function begins to improve.
After 1 year a person's risk for coronary heart disease decreases by half.
After 15 years the likelihood of developing coronary heart disease is the equivalent of a non-smoker.
This is just on the physical implications of the body. I've also witnessed how smoking affects the mental and emotional aspects of a person with guilt, shame, moodiness, agitation and self disrespect. All of these emotions and negative thoughts have a vast impact on our life and the lives of others around us. The question becomes: What kind of life would you like to have and how do you want to influence the world?
"If you want to make the world a better place Take a look at yourself, and then make a change."
~ "Man In The Mirror" Songwriters: Glen Ballard / Siedah Garrett sung by Michael Jackson
We all have a responsibility to help make the world a better place and that begins with making our own life a better place. Ask yourself 3 questions:
How would you see your Ultimate Life?
What new Joy would you want to be a part of your everyday experience?
How would your life be a Blessing to others?
Consider what you are doing in your life right here and now and ask within yourself; do my current actions reflect the goals of the 3 previous questions. Then begin to make shifts in your life in order to design your future and the future of the world. The world can be a better place because of you!
