The Folly of Disguising Toilet Leaks

Toilet Bowl  Painful feelings are feedback.

They are not the cause of undesirable experiences.  Nor do they make undesirable experiences worse.

Thus, painful feelings are not to be avoided.  In fact, there is only one thing you should do with them.

We’d Feel Our Feelings More Often If They Felt Better, Right?

Feel your feelings.  That’s the one thing you should do with them.

Especially the unpleasant ones.

So you can learn the lessons they have for you.  Lessons about your current beliefs which are creating such unpleasant versions of your circumstances.

These Lessons Teach Exactly What We Need 

Empowered by those lessons, you can then adjust your beliefs to grow into alignment with your desired experiences.

Most people cover up their painful feelings, however.

And, in doing so, don’t get to learn the lessons they contain.

Green Water Is The Information – Not The Problem

Here’s a metaphor for such cover ups:

If you desire a leak-free toilet tank, put green dye in the tank water.

If your tank leaks, you’re alerted to it by  green water in your toilet bowl.

What if a previous homeowner, however, used this idea and didn’t tell you?

You see green water in your toilet bowl and, logically, assume the problem is…there’s some green water in your toilet bowl!

How do you solve this problem when you don’t know what the green water is telling you?  You flush your toilet; you get rid of the green water and get rid of the problem.

But, of course, you must keep flushing it to continually provide yourself with the illusion that the problem is solved.

And, of course, you’ll continue to find green water in your toilet bowl until you fix the leak.

Let A Toilet Guide You

In that metaphor, replace:

  • The green dye with “your feelings”
  • The toilet tank with “your beliefs”
  • A clear toilet bowl with “your desires”
  • The leak with “beliefs not aligned with your desired experiences”

Now you’ve got a pretty clear illustration of how most people treat the information provided by their feelings.

Don’t Flush, Adjust 

Fix your leak.  Adjust your beliefs.

It’s a lot more effective than flushing your toilet every time you’re displeased by green water.

And stay tuned to this website for more tips and techniques to align your beliefs with your desires and have greater influence over your experiences…

  1. Hi Greg

    Still working in the book grow a greater you.

    • Michael, thank you for offering me the opportunity to answer a question.

      Use your feelings to let you know whether your beliefs are where you want them to be.

      Feeling “negative” emotions doesn’t mean you won’t, or can’t, experience what you desire. But they are feedback about discord, or misalignment, between your beliefs and your desired experience.

      Don’t manufacture “positive” feelings as your solution to that discord. Keep raising your beliefs and use the feelings which naturally arise as a gauge to measure the growing alignment.

      I hope that helps.

      • Thanks Greg

        Not quite sure I follow Greg, I am not manufacturing positive feelings, Have read your boo Grow a greater you, and now know better, but was thinking more about the bad feeling I felt, was it telling me that I was not aligned with the job, which I was called to an interview from?

        I agree bad feelings don’t mean that I won’t get my Desires when I move up the emotion chart, but was looking for what to learn from this specific bad feeling, was thinking it taught me something about the job I am trying to get, and was offered and interview from? Is it the right job when I feel bad feelings?
        Get an answer Wednesday if I have got the job.


        Michael, Denmark

        • I don’t think you are manufacturing “positive” feelings, Michael. I’m just reiterating the instruction to avoid doing so.

          When you have undesirable feelings, your beliefs are not aligned (enough) with your desired experience.

          Undesirable feelings, however, are not tea leaves. They are not harbingers of desirable or undesirable outcomes. They’re simply letting you know whether your beliefs are aligned (or not).

          When feelings are undesirable, simply continue to raise your beliefs. But don’t worry that your experience “must” also be undesirable because of those feelings.

          • Thanks Greg

            I Got the job, a dream job and fight for the job was extremely hard, so is happy, despite what I felt the other day.

            Continuing to work my way up the ladder emotion chart.thru my real goal Financial abundance 🙂 But this was first step and actualy my first manifestation of Things which could lead to Financial abundance, let see the NeXT weeks or months, i hope it will happen to me.

  2. You really nailed it man. I think this is what I really needed. Rather than pushing our negative emotions we should take them as Indicators. This is where Abraham hicks teaching doesn’t help. Because they tell us to feel good without actually changing the cause that is making us feel bad. They tell us to focus on something different than what is making us feel bad. Isn’t that lieing to ourselves and fooling ourselves. Your teaching really resonates with me as they are more practical. Keep up the good work. And yes, please upload some more videos on youtube, I really need to learn more from you

    • Thank you, Akhil. What kind and specific praise.

      I’ve been under the radar because I only write when I’ve learned things that work. I’m at a point where I’m writing again – because I have learned some amazing things (not necessarily new things, but simpler and clearer things) that absolutely work. Like gangbusters.

      I’m sure I’ll be uploading videos again soon.

      And I cannot wait until you read my next book, to hear what you think of it. It should be out before June.

    • Coolest news I’ve heard today.

      Thank you, Diana. I’m glad you’re working it and glad it’s working. It sure does work for me too.

      • I am a Spiritual person and could not believe when I started doing your 23 level chart how much was blocking me of limiting beliefs I had, small wonder that I was not manifesting 🙂 My eyes are opening now. Whoo HOO!

        • How cool to read your message, Diana. Thank you very much for honoring me with it.

          Our beliefs are our experiences, when it comes down to it. Our ideas create our experiences; we experience our beliefs.

          If anyone doesn’t believe you when you tell them that – ask them to experience something they don’t believe. Can’t be done.
