Mindfulness: I Don’t Mind What Happens – Finding Neutrality by David Stevens

manifesting your dreams

Three Secrets To Manifesting Your DreamsMuch has been written about going beyond the ego to mindfulness. While this is a worthwhile goal, looking at it in terms of ego has always been a stumbling block. I feel like I end up using my ego to try to transcend my ego and that doesn’t get me anywhere. I just feel stuck in analyzing and judgment! In the end feeling bad about myself.

In the Yoga of the Mind Meditation and in our Aura Healing, we stretch, strengthen and balance the soul not the ego. The result is a state of mindfulness and flow for both. Since it is hard for our mind to understand a negative, thinking about having no ego becomes a self-defeating proposition. We focus the healing or meditation on simply releasing what does not serve us and having more of what is ideal. This is a neutral way of shifting. The ego cannot get involved. There is nothing to judge or analyze.

Let me share this story about a highly enlightened man being asked what the secret was to his advanced neutrality and happiness. He said, “I don’t mind what happens.” This simple statement holds the key to exploring greater inner freedom through mindfulness and neutrality.

When we are working from our ego there is judgment and analysis. We are attempting to impose a fixed idea we have on to the external world. We especially notice this when the imposing isn’t going well, or we are not getting what we want.

If we can positively bring in more of the mindfulness of neutrality, we will find ourselves becoming more peaceful and free.  Neutrality is “not minding what happens.”  This can be a great walking around meditation – noticing what happens and releasing the “minding” or resistance.  Through this process we can realize the wisdom of the words of Byron Katie “Loving what is.” She has a great observation, “I can argue with reality, but I only lose 100% of the time.”

So how can you explore greater neutrality?  One way is to pick a situation that you are not neutral about.  Then learn to be grounded and centered through a short meditation.  We can begin to witness the part of ourselves that is neutral – even while regarding an undesired external result.  The neutrality brings peace and perspective.

It is important to note that we are not recommending fatalistic resignation and giving up on trying to change or improve things.  In fact, the increased neutrality often opens more creativity and renewed energy which offers you more options.  Often these options are better than what your ego thought it wanted.

However, the primary benefit to increased neutrality is more inner peace and self-acceptance, as we realize the wisdom of the serenity prayer, “grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Tapping Into Your Psychic Ability

Tapping Into Your Own Psychic Abilities

One of my favorite groups I host is called “Inspiration Junkies,” where the mantra of the event is “Block out the noise and pave your own road guided by what lights you up.”  People leave inspired and charged with the life force of the element of Fire.

I imagine for many first time attendees it feels like finally getting to exhale completely for the first time.  The power of joining with your intuition and acknowledging its existence is a potent change.  It is often much easier shield ourselves from our intuition and passion.  We have been programmed to think our natural psychic abilities do not exist.  But there is no avoiding the times that your gut thinking comes into view and you just know something without a reason.
The fact of the matter is, the truth has mystical magical qualities. We all have intuitive psychic abilities to recognize our truth– often it is our own self-doubt that blocks this universal gift. Just look around you. Are there things in your home, work life or relationship realm that you wished for or predicted that have shown up? My guess is there are, but we are not always able to grasp how they arrived nor do we see or acknowledge our role in consciously seeking them. Take a minute to reflect, do you think you have what you achieved in your life merely because of hard work? If so that’s the element of Earth stepping in and taking all the credit for getting things done. But what if you gently nudge Earth to the side and let the other elements join the party? Lets add a little Water to the mix and recognize the times when your emotional intuition guided you along the way. What about acknowledging Air for the times that your mind could embrace a concept and idea so clearly that you knew it would happen. And yes now comes in Fire – that fire in the belly energy that charges you up to boldly go into the unknown towards your heart and soul desires. These are all examples of intuition and psychic abilities. Here is where our psychic abilities come in handy — our talents for deciphering the truth in the present moment, where it is seemingly out of reach.
This is why a regular meditation practice is important.  It helps you to clear your mind and relax into the space that you are in and the energy around you. By breathing in and exhale completely you allow the vital organs and the muscles of your body to relax allowing the intelligence of the body to come to surface. Meditating for just 15 minutes a day can offer benefits and create access to intuition.  Whenever you feel like you’re stressed, pushed or at your limits, meditation can re-center you and bring you back in to balance – rejuvenating you instantly.  When we are in balance and connected to the energy of the universe our natural psychic abilities are clear and can be received thus creating the magic and spice for life we all crave.
