Magic?

"Any sufficiently advanced tecchology is indistinguishable from magic."

— Arthur C. Clarke

I have always loved this quote. There are so many things I have accepted because people I trusted told me they were possible. Often those things worked and sometimes they didn't. Sometimes I understood why, but more often, I shrugged and moved on.

We as human beings are way too complex for us to fully understand on biological, biochemical, physical and social levels.

Once, I was privileged to hear the late Candice Pert answer a question most other distinguished scientists would have dismissed. She said, "We don't have the technical tools to examine that, yet!"

I offer Logosynthesis in this book from this perspective. It is a method that has been extremely helpful for many people. I have personally observed its usefulness for myself and others. I offer it for you to experiment with and to learn whether it is useful for you.

Don’t Believe What You Think

Jack and Jill, a popular children's magazine ran a feature called, "I Used to Think…" where an 8-year-old could contribute a story about an old misconception about the world.

Beliefs like "the tree-tops touch the sky' and  'my mom always knows where I am' were common.

I watched 2 6-year old boys almost come to blows about whether the tooth fairy was real, and I simply could not convince a 4-year-old that it was a cartoon character and not he who had smashed the monster.

It is completely normal for children to believe this way. And it's the job of parents and other care takers to gently help kids to understand how the world really works.

The problem comes when children don't talk about their beliefs about the world — especially when they are under stress. Parents often accidently cause the stress by making unrealistic threats or promises or simply repeating ordinary statements like 'boys don't cry' or 'stop asking for stuff.'

If you were on the receiving end of experiences like this, and most of us were, they may still be shaping your view of the world.

It may be time to start really listening to the stories you tell yourself and see if they are causing unnecessary anxiety or stress in your life.

Too Much Stuff

I need to reorganize my kitchen. My consultant looked and commented that I have lots of stuff I probably don't need. She is absolutely right. Yet, I don't want to let it go!

I know why. My parents lived through the depression and taught me to conserve everything because I might need it someday. That is still true I suppose.  More important, I carry the memory of their disapproval, left over from anytime I wasted a resource, frozen deep within myself.

They actually did manage to downsize and release a lot of their stuff, but I was not close by to witness their doing so. The frozen energy from many years ago is still impacting my life today.

I know I can and eventually will take on this challenge and use the Logosynthesis process to help me release the stuck energy. Meanwhile, I still have overstuffed cabinets and drawers.

Did you read this because you too have too much stuff? Do you know why you are holding on and where your energy is stuck? Are you willing to find out?

And are you willing to join me in the challenge of letting it go?
