- How are language use and our vocabulary can restrict our life experience.
Life can only be “good” at the very best with his sign.
I saw it printed in large letters hanging from the ceiling in a shop that sold well-being cards and household things in San Diego, but I felt sad when I saw it. The saying “life is what you make it” is very true.
How we receive anything is completely our own. Let me explain. Have you ever said anything to somebody, who reacted to what you said in a completely unexpected way? Perhaps they took immediate offense to what you said, when you meant no harm at all, or were even making a light hearted comment for a bit of fun?
When we have unresolved issues/past hurts that we still carry around as us in our energy, any event or stimuli, passes through our accumulation of experiences/data stored, that we have not cleared.
Think of a computer, when we haven’t deleted things, or put them onto a separate hard drive. The computer needs to put energy into starting it whole self up, so it can have ready every little bit we might need. It will take longer to get ready to start, and there will be an obvious drain on the power as superfluous, unneeded or irrelevant files, slow and hinder the process.
All aspects of ourselves, also require energy in order we can receive anything. It is our fixed design, so we can use our life wisdom, that has us check everything to keep us protected. It is largely a subconscious scanning process that goes on, as all familiarities and associations contained within, are activated.
When we carry around our problems instead of regularly clearing them, the issue of past hurt is just as ready as our own eyes, to take in the information.
We do not and we cannot take it in, without it passing through all of the ‘files behind our eyes’.
My mother taught me this from the earliest years. She would look at something- anything- and immediately respond with something critical and negative. She did not see beauty in what she saw. She was not able to.
Her receiving face would have narrowed eyes under a frowning forehead. Her nose would be narrowed. Her posture would be stooped, or noticing from sideways on, with a cranked neck to see properly. Her verbal comment would use a flattened or dull tone of voice that was not pleasing to hear, from a mouth that was perhaps partially obstructed by a finger or not opened fully to speak.
These are all indicative behavioural responses to not fully being able to take in life.
An open-hearted being has wide eyes, and open nostrils to receive life, and to breathe life force energy in. An open-hearted being has a forehead that is raised in interest and a stance or posture alignment that allows for a natural flow of unhindered inner energies, from a place of confident viewing. An open-hearted being expresses a tone of voice that is energizing or invigorating to hear, with unashamed in delivery.
So severe was her condition, that she could see only faults when she looked into her own baby daughter’s face. I grew so accustomed to screwed up narrowed eyes, that it was many years before I saw loving ones and experienced the phenomenal difference.
Life is incredible. Life is magical.
It is how we receive it, that makes our experience of it so. To be as fresh as if we just arrived on the planet is the way to live!
Skills to further heighten our senses are available to us…tbc! : )
