I appreciate…

I recently had the opportunity to explore many wonders of science and technology. I was awed when I was privileged to see a machine that is used for preparing a cancer patients blood for a stem cell transplant.

I certainly have no understanding of the technology that went into creating such a wonder. Yet I know people’s lives have been extended because they trusted this process.

I know that the creation of this machine did not occur spontaneously. It was built in small increments upon previously available technology.

An example of this is the centrifuges that have been available for a very long time. I used them in my first lab assistant career right after I graduated from college over 50 years ago. The principle remains the same but the refinements and technology are amazing.

Logosynthesis was not developed in a vacuum. Although the intuitive awareness of Dr. Willem Lammers brought the process to us, his intuition arose after many years of studying many different ways of supporting individual growth and change. I am grateful that I have the opportunity to share this development with all of you.

What Pushes Your Buttons?

A reader recently asked me to help her find a target for the 3 ‘magic’ Logosynthesis sentences.

As we talked about different buttons that triggered her distress. She had lots of stories to share. Nothing particularly stressful had happened to her and yet she was feeling some intense responses to incidents that she considered pretty minor.

As I listened closely to understand what all those incidents might have in common, I heard her refer to a fundamental belief about how the world worked.

I don’t have permission to share her fundamental belief, but a sample of other beliefs might be:

  • Everyone is my friend.
  • If I do what is right, everything will be okay.
  • The man should be in charge of his family.
  • People are not to be trusted.
  • I am not enough.

There are many others–most of them not particularly logical.

With this reader/client, she inserted “this belief that…” into the sentences.

When I asked her about her experience, she looked a bit stunned, said “I guess it’s not always true,” and began to sob.

Giving up a cherished belief caused grief, and, it opened the possibility of change that has the potential for much greater happiness.

Little Stuff Adds Up

You have an opportunity to freeze energy almost every day of your life.

It takes attention to manage your life and research has shown that the amount of attention we have available over a period of time is actually limited. It can be renewed by rest, meditation, time in nature, etc, but it’s like only having a certain amount of money to spend each day. When it’s used up, you need to figure out ways to manage without it.

Giving something your attention is a way of using your available energy. Once your supply is getting low, you have less energy to respond to demands on your time and you react emotionally instead.

You know those reactions are likely to get you into trouble at work or with another person, so you just quickly bury the whole messy business and go on to something else. That’s how you freeze energy.

If you do this often enough, it will probably lead to problems later. Things like exhaustion and burnout are some common results.

Taking time to reclaim that frozen energy using the Logosynthesis sentences can keep the problems from building up. You’ll know when you need to do this when those negative experiences resurface and get stuck in your mind. Take time to let them go!
