Feelings arise from thoughts that when sufficiently repeated become beliefs.
Feeling insecure comes from a set of beliefs laden with emotional responses to thoughts of survival. When we reinforce these beliefs by seeking confirmation outside of ourselves, they become instinctual by receding into our subconscious mind. Unaware, underlying fear is now the state of mind that guides our feelings and actions.
Fear is based on stories we tell ourselves that something we do not like may happen and will affect our well-being.
In a September 1851 journal entry by Henry David Thoreau, we get a clue of the power that these stories exert over our lives. “Nothing is so much to be feared as fear”, he wrote. Franklin D. Roosevelt was later to use the dictum to reassure a beleaguered nation gripped by fear of the Great Depression.
Today our buried fears are calcified by multimedia reinforcement.
We witness terrorized people fleeing their homeland to encounter more fear, depending on where they land. We receive dire insurance solicitations promising safety in exchange for premiums and get text messages announcing that a known pedophile has moved nearby. Teachers are urged to wear guns in schools and savvy politicians feed with gory rhetoric the hungry fear deep within our core. A local business has designed bullet-proof back packs that school children can wear and parents are purchasing them as holiday gifts for $250.00 each!
Unfortunately, underlying fear keeps us from thriving, creating and attaining happiness.
Sure signs that we function in fear are issues with wealth and abundance, rampant health problems, especially cancer, anxiety, weight gain and the establishment of rigid rules that create a sense of false security, at home or worldwide. Check, check, check!
We can start feeling safe now by deciding to change our minds.
Wayne W. Dyer said that “when we change our thoughts, what we look at changes”. This means creating empowering new neural pathways in our brains to help us alter emotional fear triggers. Scientists call it “neuroplasticity”, or a way to rewire our brains with new thoughts, that become new beliefs and provoke us into new ways of behaving and feeling. And I have just the tool to help you practice this!
Ancient syllables that form The Wish Fulfilling Mantra are inscribed on the art I call Door Protector, created with the intention of assisting people overcome issues consistent with living with fear. These are sacred paintings that broadcast unconditional love and are produced by channeling the energy of the person/s who commissions it while chanting and writing in Sanskrit the cherished Buddhist mantra taught 2600 years ago by the historical Buddha.
The colors, shapes, textures and findings around the mantra are selected for the particular client to create empowering new neural pathways in our brain that broadcast clarity, harmony, balance, love and joy.
The thoughts are reinforced on a constant basis because the art is installed above the front door on the inside. Seeing the art has also shown to positively affect all who pass under it.
I am privileged to have received many wonderful testimonials from the many clients who now own door protectors. Their compelling stories show that they lead creative lives and raise happy families. None of them ordered bullet-proof wear. Instead they have learned to entertain empowering thoughts that invite inner safety as a way of behaving and feeling.
