Where intentional creators gather, play, and relax.
The blessing, and curse, of being human is we remember. We remember things that happened yesterday, last year, and three years ago.
When things are going great, this is a blessing. We relish in the delicious smell of a freshly bathed infant, laugh all over again at a heart warming conversations, and review, in depth, that time we scored the winning goal.
The stitch in our side is when we remember the things that throw us off our game. The car crash that killed our best friend, the cancer that took a loved one, the time someone made fun of our clothes in third grade. Most of this mental reguritation we could do with out.
How would your life be different if you woke up tomorrow with a high tech filtering mechanism that weeded out all the images, sounds, and sensations that made your stomach turn? What if you could think of these events with ease instead of angst?
How would you live your life if you knew how to, within seconds, how move yourself back into that place of feeling easy, relieved, safe, and hopeful when that loaded memory hit?
There is a way to do this but it comes with one kaveat. You must be willing to allow your ability to do this to unfold, in time. This reality has two components that we seem to factor out when we want to feel better: time and space.
Time is not something we need to draw our swords against; it's not the enemy. You have more than enough of it. It's a celebrated buffer that allows for smooth landings in rough weather. It steals nothing from you.
When you understand it's true nature and flexibity, you take back your sanity. You feel empowered no matter what circumstances reign upon you.
We live in time, but not in the way you've been thinking about it. The memories you would rather delete do not reside in a separate place called the past. When you let go of these constructs, past and future, you begin to see things as they truly are.
Here's the jist of it. When a thought pops into your mind, it's happening NOW. It's not happening in the past, in the future or next Tuesday. It's happening now. Now, now, now, now, now.
In order to improve your emotional acumen, you must recognize that nothing happens outside of this moment of now. Now is always shifting, expanding.
The typical frames rate of a moving picture, or movie, is twenty-four frames per second. That's twenty-four picture frames which have a beam of light passing through it. This gives the illusion of movement.
Life also has a frames per second ratio.
Serge Heroche won the Nobel Prize in 2012 for attempting to answer this question: What is the frame rate of reality? His conclusion was something around forty-one billions frames a second.
In other words, reality is actually a series of still frames with light passing through them at such as a high rate of speed it appears to be moving. It's not, however. It's only being realized, by you, one frame at a time. One moment of now after the other.
What does this have to do with feeling good, or bad, depending on which memory is summoned?
The image, feeling, memory, thought or idea cannot actually resonate in the past. It can only resonate right NOW. Now, now, now, now, now.
When you activate a memory, thought, or idea—in each individual moment of now—by bringing it to mind, with a feeling, you give it life. You give it texture, shape, size, and tone.
This is a big relief. You don't have to reach back into your childhood, or your past, to fix anything. The past is not a place you can go. It's not haunting you; it's not chasing you down like a rabid dog. It's not affecting your future.
All our mental and emotional torture is just a big misunderstanding regarding how time is constructed.
All you need to do is become aware of what's happening right now and find the pattern.
Your most active pattern of resonance (feeling) is being shown to you in both how you feel and what circumstances, people, situations, conversations and experiences you see in your reality.
This is the true meaning of empowerment. To be able to use data (circumstances, people, situations, conversations and experiences) to create more positive outcomes in life and not feeling like a victim.
You're never a victim in this reality. Why? Because this reality is not governed by any laws of insertion or assertion. There are only laws of vibration, attraction, intention, and perception.
You're never a victim to your memories, only the creator of them. If you feel negative when a memory gets jogged, do the work to get into alignment so the next time it visits, you won't feel as bad—now.
