Did you see the movie, “What the Bleep” several years ago? Recently, I have begun engaging in Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work, one of the presenters from that movie. He encourages folks to not only create their own reality but to do their own clearing.
Of course, it is different from Compassionate Clearing. Along with meditation and other practices, Dr. Joe teaches us to observe our thoughts carefully. I want to share with you a way to do some personal clearing. This one is about doing personal clearing and transforming. Observing and analyzing our thoughts can really bring us to a new awareness about our behaviors.
Dr. Joe asks us to choose a particular undesired personal trait we would like to get rid of such as fear, impatience, judging, or worrying. Once we decide the one to eliminate, we choose one or two positive affirmations to say instead. As you interact with in the world, you can observe yourself and the minute that trait expresses itself in your head, you stop it and you replace it with your positive affirmation.
For instance, for my first experiment, I chose the trait impatience, since it is something I’ve dealt with my whole life. Now, when I’m in a grocery line with a dawdler or coming home with a slow, unconscious driver blocking the left, faster lane, I take a deep breath and say to myself, “I have all the time in the world.” or “Will I even remember this tomorrow?”
Sometimes, I do really well with self-observation and correction, and sometimes it’s a struggle. I keep trying, and I’m getting better at it. It is exciting when I encounter a situation where I feel mastery over that impatience.
It doesn’t matter which detrimental emotional characteristic that you want to eliminate, with persistence, you can prevail. I encourage you to give it a try. You just might be surprised what is running amok in your mind that drags you down, keeps you angry or fearful, or perpetuates worry.
