What Was I Thinking?

You’re writing your autobiography. What’s your opening sentence?

In truth, the actual question is ‘why didn’t I know how to think?’

My organic spiritual path, in other words not consciously chosen by me in this life but worked out in line with my soul intention, has led to me personally believing that life has been before this lifetime, and goes on after this lifetime. That I’m the product of many different lives and experiences, and for some reason I wanted to do this all over again. Which is the ‘what was I thinking?’ part.

‘Why didn’t I know how to think?’ has been the major learning curve of my life, and to say that the way I use my mind now compared to the way I was raised to use are worlds apart would be the understatement of the century.

The light of the universe, the connection to soul, understanding who and what we are and how to allow that to oil the wheels of this human journey. These are the things that have changed the way I think in the most unexpected ways.

This also led me to a conference that takes place in many of the major cities of the world, The Conference for Consciousness and Human Evolution, where I learned some scientific facts that really opened my mind to who and what we are. As Gregg Braden would say, Human by Design, and what a design it is, but it’s a design that transcends what we think of as being human, but doesn’t deny what we are as soul. I’d describe it as ‘the more you know that you don’t know about your amazing capabilities the more interesting life becomes.

Explore, read, learn. Imagine that in that room alone, those few seats hold one fact that you don’t know about yourself.

When you learn that information though, understand that each piece of knowledge is an opportunity for action, an open door to real, positive, life enhancing change. It’s not just useful for quiz shows, and impressing people at parties. You’re supposed to use knowledge to create change.

Total mindset shift

I have changed my mind to a point that fundamentally I’m a completely different person, I still have a few of the old bugaboos, I can slip into anxiety if I hit a bump in the road or allow myself to get too tired or drained, I do struggle a bit during the winter months. I was born in the spring for a reason. However, I spent a lot of time and a great deal of very pleasant effort in consciously and deliberately changing my mind and therefore myself. Or as I say in my work:

Transform your mind, transform your life.

It doesn’t work any other way, same thoughts equal same person equal repeat patterns, equal more of the same.

Changing your mind is rejuvenating. Instead of getting older you get different, you meet a new and evolving you on a regular basis. I’m mid 60’s but I’m enjoying my life as never before because of this mindset shift. I feel younger than I did at 16. I like life, and I still believe that there is so much out there that’s amazing.

Opening line?

Knowledge plus action equals an inspirational life.

To our happiness

I'm a writer, public speaker, medium, and spiritual thinker. I suffered from acute anxiety from the age of 16 until I was well into my 50s, after fearlessly exploring many ideas, philosophies, and tools, I finally found methods that helped me return my mind to a better normal. One of the things I hated about anxiety was the way people treated me like a fool or a problem, I have two degrees and I'm a (much) retired black belt, my IQ is decent, but I constantly felt like a complete idiot, something that was exacerbated by never feeling like the real me. The girl who could laugh endlessly about the smallest things, and had a real excitement about what life had to offer her. I didn't need anyone else to tell me I wasn't 'right', I knew that better than anyone. My mission now is to support people suffering as I did with a message of support with what they're going through, tools and ideas that might help, and a strong message of hope for the future. At 63, which I am at the time of writing, many people I know are in a rut, yet having beaten anxiety I'm now doing more with my life than I ever did when I was struggling just to get up in the morning, let alone face the day. It's a wonderful feeling - so the main message is that it doesn't matter how long you've been struggling or what age you are, when you beat anxiety you will get an entirely new lease of life - and that's fantastic at any age. On a personal note I'm married to my soul mate, we have 5 cats, and I live in the middle of the UK. I follow a number of fantastic thinkers, as it's important to immerse yourself in healthy thinking as often as you can, I'm a Toastmaster and professional public speaker, and I keep life simple and encourage my clients to do the same, and my friends.
