    Taking things personally. Most people don’t care and they frequently do things that work for them at that moment. A lot of times what people do have nothing to do with you. You just happen to be there.

    I am willing to let go of my need to have every assignment in on time. While that might sound irresponsible, I really want to make self-care (as daily exercise) a priority, and the fact that I feel like I need to apologize when I say that is probably just more evidence that I need to let some of the perfectionism go.

    I recently got to know a most beautiful piece of spoken and music by Ram Dass and Jon Hopkins, where it is said to let judgements and oppinions of the mind be judgements and oppinions of the mind. So this would be a most welcome aspect in order to become free and /or happy. Thank you to the creators of this beautiful and touching presentation of truth.

    Fear of joy, fear of freely expressing my creativity.

    guilt, anxiety, regret and past patterns that do not serve me.
    I let go of everything that no longer serves me and my highest, healthiest self.

    Self … the person I used to think I was. I donated all the suits (of armor) to thrift stores, reconnected with everyday people, tossed aside all the roles, positions and tokens, became invisible and anonymous, … and in the last 6 months, even stopped cutting my hair! Who was that guy?

    I’m willing to let go of the belief that I have the answers. There was a time when I believed that I did and I time when I lost that and thus became lost; I didn’t know what to be in place of that person. Now I’m comfortable with not knowing. I wake up in the morning not knowing and it’s ok 🙏

      Dear Sandra, I agree with you and Cintia, not knowing as a path to freedom. But I need reflections, meditations, courage, humility. Feel embraced.

        Anna, you’re right and I need those things too. Thank you for reminding me of them ❤️️ I was thinking of a time – many years in fact – when I believed that I needed certainty. I needed control, a framework to hang everything on. Whenever I didn’t have an answer or didn’t know what to do, that framework and the certainty/safety net that it provided would crumble and I would feel anxious and not quite know who I was or what my place was in the world. I’m describing this so badly! I’m still not comfortable with uncertainty and not knowing, but I am learning that it’s ok and that I can live alongside it. Peace to you, Anna 🙏

      I thought about it this morning. I agree with you!
      I’m comfortable with not knowing. Not knowing makes me free and happy

        Hi Cintia! I can’t say I feel free and happy in not knowing but I do know I am happier and more comfortable with it than I was. It’s still quite new to me. I’m learning to live alongside it and accept that it’s ok. And it’s very freeing not to be focussed on answers and instead to accept what comes up and embrace it. Enjoy your day, Cintia 😌❤️️

    Expectations….maybe easier said than done. But having these ideas in my head about how something should be that differ from what is in reality, just leads to sadness and disappointment. If I let go of that, would happiness fill the vacant space?

    Not my stuff – but I’ve let go worrying about it recently. My daughter told me that even my daughter-in-law wouldn’t want me to worry so much about leaving too much stuff behind after I die. I recently realized – they’ll just need to pay someone to haul it away! And my estate will handle that. I saw a junk collector putting furniture and pictures and stuff in his truck. I hoped he’d find homes for the stuff, but he said no one wants things like that. He thought the woman had passed and there was no one to deal with her things. But I’m sure the condo staff had removed whatever they wanted by that time 🙂

    I want to focus less on me being the center of the universe and see all things as mutual attractors (all with equal pull). And rather than me being a center by which all others orbit around me, I wish to focus more on the planets that surround me.. For I am weary of focusing on my own needs. And want to live a more altruistic future especially towards those I love. I want to be less materialistic, focus on what I have rather than on what I don’t have.

    My first thought was guilt and regret. Remorse is OK, but guilt is not good for anyone. It is like wet cement, slowly drying and dragging you down into this hopeless hole of darkness….. Remorse says I am sorry for what I have done, and will do better. Guilt is like a layer of death, a slow death kind of thing, dark, hopeless…Nope! Not doing that.

    Here is an exercise meditation we Essenes use to “burn off” Non-life support “Karmic debt. This does require Visualizing one’s body form…[[ Noetical Image ]] ( dressed in snow white light ) but at the same time feeling the effects of the Golden flames on your ( non-visualized ) physical form, so two places at once. . It takes a bit of practice if one is not experienced in visualization BUT this is an ancient technique given by Joshua Emanuel to his new disciples so they could eventually become Karmically cleared enough so that they could assist others in the so-called “healing” methods .

    M27-T3

    Burning Karmic debts. – Exercise

    Feel that you are in this image [[ NOETICAL IMAGE ]] of yourself but simultaneously you are also your material body.

    START:

    Close your eyes, breathe deeply and comfortably and relax your material body…..[0;35]

    Your whole body is now completely relaxed. [0:50]

    Mentally see that you are in a big square room. …snow white… floor, …snow white… walls and …snow white… ceiling.[1;35]

    Mentally see yourself as a body form, standing in the middle of this…snow white… room. [2:00]

    [2: 28] ## The place, as well as the image of yourself, are created by your thoughts, and [through] the Noetical light. [2:32]

    [2:50] Now stretch your Etheric hands in front of you, bring them together and mark a point on the …snow white… floor.

    [3;15] From that mark, use your right Etheric hand and a draw line on the floor in …GOLDEN LIGHT… to a point behind you on the right side. [[ SEE, HEAR AND FEEL IT FLOWING ]]

    Use your left Etheric hand to and draw line on the floor from their …GOLDEN LIGHT… to a point behind you on the left side. [[ SEE, HEAR AND FEEL IT FLOWING ]]

    Now see a third line of …GOLDEN LIGHT…, connecting those two points behind you. [4:50] [[ SEE, HEAR AND FEEL IT FLOWING ]]

    Observe, in front of you is the top corner of the triangle and behind you, the other two corners.

    Slowly, slowly, bring your Etheric hands up and place them on your heart center forming a Sun.

    Visualize that you are taking deep breaths in the [ Noetical ] image of yourself

    [5;50] See the [ Noetical ] image of yourself inhaling and exhaling.

    [6:20]

    *** Feel that you are in this [Noetical] image of yourself but simultaneously you are also in your material body.*** [6;34]

    See and feel that you are breathing [[ WHILE ]] in this [Noetical] image of yourself. [7;00]

    From the place you’re standing flames …GOLDEN YELLOW FLAMES …. start to rise up from the floor.[7;16]

    After a while the whole triangle is on fire. [ so fire from all 3 sides ] [7;30]

    The …GOLDEN YELLOW light FLAMES surround you, [ spiral up in a clockwise rotation ] but they do not burn. They do not leave one stain on the image of yourself. You are in the middle of the …GOLDEN YELLOW light FLAMES , they do not burn you but they are reviving you. See how the …GOLDEN YELLOW light FLAMES slowly reach your head and then move on, above it.

    [9; 12] Breath [in] this invigorating …GOLDEN YELLOW light FLAMES .

    They penetrate and kiss the image of yourself, but they do not burn you.

    See the …GOLDEN YELLOW light FLAMES as they come,
    do not try to create them.

    [10:10] Let them burn what must be burned.

    You will not feel pain.

    They are burning old [ non- production ] Karmic debts, old conditions.

    They will not harm you.

    [11:02] If there is much to be burned you may see the flames in …orange colored light….. [[ or maybe red too ]]

    Otherwise they will be …GOLDEN YELLOW light FLAMES

    [11:52] If you see smoke in these …GOLDEN YELLOW light Flames…., do not concentrate on it.

    Observe until you’ll see the …sweet GOLDEN YELLOW…. in the flames and feel how they caress you and give you Joy.

    [13:50] And now take your time to feel more and more in your material body again.

    Anger. I have a lot of anger, deep down, that grieves me and causes me to hurt. I’m angry for the way I was raised, the senseless abuse and neglect. I’m angry for the sexual assault that happened when I was in the Marines; I do not trust men to this day. My anger is directed toward people who can not receive it, the people who tormented me in my childhood are dead, with one exception and I have nothing to do with her because she has not changed. It is exhausting, fighting against this anger. It wearies me and affects my relationships now. I’m working on processing my anger/grief with a therapist. I’m praying some day, I am free of it.

      Fighting it must be hard, dear DeVonna. This sounds weird, but could you embrace it? I’m reminded of ‘Whole Brain Living’ which helped me deal with what is supposedly my emotional left-brain amygdala – I named her ‘Wound’ and I try to comfort her. She seems quieter now.

    Perfectionism and the desire to be liked by everyone. I really thought I had moved past both of those things, at least for the most part, and then I started my new role at work… boom! There they are, staring me in the face for the past two weeks. Perfectionism aside, I know my new team likes me. They supported me becoming their team leader. They know my work ethic. And I know it’s not about being liked anyway. It’s just old programming that’s hard to let go of!

    Just recently I began exploring mind-body techniques to help control my chronic back pain which I have been dealing with now for 12 years. You name the types of medical treatments, injections, related therapies, medications, and so forth and I’ve done them. I know too that others who frequent this site regularly struggle with chronic pain also. It’s early in this new approach for me, but the results so far have been very promising. My hope, and prayer, is that this new approach will continue to bring me relief.

      John E. Sarno authored a couple books in my kindle library on the mind-body connection, Kevin – maybe you know of his work. Warm wishes!

      1. Kevin

        Thanks Mica. Yes, I’ve read Sarno’s first book many years ago now, back when my back issues were just beginning. What’s interesting is that some of Sarno’s work, thought groundbreaking in the beginning, was later debunked and ridiculed by the newer sciences. But some of his work has been studied and found effective, and researchers have yet to understand why. So there’s that. But Sarno was a pioneer for sure in his field.

          Thanks for the update, Kevin – Sarno’s was one of the many books my son has recommended. It did seem too good to be true – his 1991 book would be an early one. I’ll have fun learning more about his work.
          Warm wishes for your back! What a burden 🤗😊

      Putting in a plug here for CBD oil .
      I have been a walker/ hiker for many years . Started experiencing some intense R hip pain about a year ago .
      My thoughts were to be open to everything & anything before I even considered surgery for a hip replacement .
      CBD has been a huge success for me and so glad to have found it .
      Still walking my 15-18 miles a week with zero discomfort…
      It’s a win !

        Thanks JDS. Oh yes! I have an array of CBD?THS salves, tinctures and editable. Actually, the CBN strain of marijuana has been found to be an even better medication for managing pain than even CBD. But it’s not as widely available, and you have to remortgage your house to buy the stuff (legally) so far. But I’ve had a medical marijuana license here in MA since it became legal a number of years ago now.. Thanks again.

      Sounds very hopeful, Kevin. I pray it works well for you. They use this a lot in Australia to avoid addiction to pain medication.

      1. Kevin

        Thank you, Dusty Su. Fortunately, addiction for me has not been an issue. I hate the stuff! I think that the U.S. has been much slower than other countries in utilizing mind/body work and its resources. We are a pill-focused society up here on our side of the planet. Just turn the TV on and every commercial tells us we’re dying and they’ve got a pill to fix it!

          I really noticed the antidepressants adds in the USA along with other cure alls and fear filled adds.

          Addiction issues in Australia can mean a fear of overprescribing, even modest amounts, and getting in trouble for doing so. This means pain not properly or easily medicated. So, hence modest medication and alternative treatments. This is a vast problem around the world at end of life. Either through lack of medicines or fear of “wrongfully prescribing.”

          I have long prayed for non-addictive, highly effective, inexpensive, easily accessible to all pain treatment to he discovered.
