Why Lying To Yourself is More Addictive Than Crack

Your free gift, from Greg Kuhn, for being part of the Your Best Year Yet Summit.

 

placebo-effect  Manifesting, by definition, means making something evident to your eyes or to your understanding.  When we believe it, we experience it. It no longer matters, at some point, which people, places, and things make up our lives.  We always experience what we believe, despite, people, places, and things that prevent most people from doing so.

No One “Tries to Manifest” Something He’s Already Experiencing the Way He Wants

You desire new experiences.  You wish to manifest them differently.  The experience you’re having is more painful than the one you truly desire.

Trying to direct your own experiences, you trained yourself to believe the things you desired.  You trained yourself because you see the connection between feelings and experiences, but you accidently put feelings in charge.   Like a luggage handler forced to fly the plane, your feelings have been asked to do things they can’t.

And, even worse, not allowed to do the things they can do.  Better than anything else can, I might add.

We Have Found the Enemy – It’s Our Greatest Ally

We manufacture the feelings we want to create the experiences we want.  And, of course, we do this during painful experiences.  We also try to create the experiences we want by denying the feelings we don’t want.  When intentionally creating them, we treat feelings as if they’re the source of the experiences we want .  And we treat feelings as the source of our painful experiences when denying them.

What abuse.  What misuse.  Yet, it feels so good to do that, it eventually becomes almost impossible to stop.

That’s because feelings only serve one purpose.  Feelings tell you if your governing beliefs are capable of creating the experience you really want.  That’s it.

A Singularity of Purpose Leads to Being Really Good at It

To learn if your governing beliefs are capable of creating the experience you really want all you have to do is experience it painfully.  Feel the painful feelings that accompany it and you’re learn your governing beliefs are incapable of creating the experience you truly desire.

It feels like the answers to your pain are waiting for you in positive thinking.  Because positive thinking during painful experiences feels really good.  Just keep in mind that crack cocaine apparently feels really good during painful experiences too.

Heisenberg Made Meth, Though, Not Crack

Crack keeps the user addicted to a substance providing a facade of the experiences he really wants.  Positive thinking does the same thing because the answers to your pain are actually waiting for inside painful feelings.

Feelings and experiences partner like Martin and Lewis, Bert and Ernie, or Han and Chewie.  When we make feelings the source of our experiences, however, their partnership becomes more like Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

“Thank You, Sir!  May I Have Another?”

As insane as this might sound, this is what positive thinking represents at its core: “I’m not having an undesirable experience as long as I don’t feel the painful feelings.”  And, likewise, “If I manufacturing pleasing feelings then I’m having the experience I really want.”  But painful feelings don’t attract painful experiences, they only tell us our governing beliefs are not capable of creating the experiences we really want.  And pleasing feelings don’t attract pleasing experiences, they only tell us our beliefs are creating the experience we truly desire.

Painful feelings never miscommunicate when you know what they communicate.  Painful feelings communicate your beliefs’ incapacity to create the experience you really want.  During a painful experience, painful feelings say, “Greg, your beliefs are not capable of creating the experience you truly desire.”

Candy That’s Good For You – Just What You’ve Been Waiting For

Every painful experience is a pinata full of answers instead of candy.  The most painful experiences have the most delicious kinds.  Painful experiences are the richest place to ask yourself, “What am I waiting for?”  The answers found there are the most powerful.

Because painful feelings are teachers, listen to what they reveal about your current, governing beliefs.  Those feelings don’t indict you, they are merely your beliefs’ thermometer. Painful feelings say your beliefs aren’t fully “cooked” yet, they aren’t capable of creating the experience you really want.  Then, in place of blame, you can simply adjust according to what you learn.

You don’t have a wonderful experience because you first had wonderful feelings, after all.  Feelings arise naturally from an experience; you only manufacture feelings when the ones you’d prefer didn’t come about on their own.  Manufactured feelings don’t created the experiences you really want, they only allow you to deny painful ones.

Just For Today, You Don’t Have to Get Strung Out on Affirmations Ever Again

Your feelings are giving you information about whether your current beliefs are capable of creating your desired experiences.  The minute you indulge in the emotional crack of positive thinking, you’re no longer in touch with your true feelings.  Which means you’re not learning whether or not your governing beliefs are capable of creating the experiences you really desire.

Stay off the crack.  Feel your feelings and pay attention to what they’re telling you about your governing beliefs.  Don’t change your feelings; change your beliefs and use your feelings as a gauge for those efforts.
