Are You Your Own Worst Enemy? How To Stop Sabotaging Yourself
You see pictures of gorgeous, fit models leaping for joy in a meadow in a state of supreme ecstasy. You first feel inspired. You finish the article and sigh.
It was a great read and you know you'd feel better if you put the advice into practice (green smoothies, meditation, exercise), but deep down, you know it will never happen because you’ve got an embarrassing secret.
The truth is, you wake up feeling about as fresh as the bottom of a 7/11 coffee pot.
If I saw your aura in this state, there would be a brown, muddy sludge-like energy, stagnating around the liver and gallbladder. This “sludge” will give rise to sugar and stimulant cravings which will further exacerbate your feeling of blah.
If I asked you if you'd like to release your negative habit, you'd nod vigorously. If I looked at your aura while you responded, I'd see the equivalent of an actor in a pantomime, mouthing, “Nooooooo!” in the background.
But you absolutely want to quit this habit, right?
Every part of you wants it gone.
You are, in fact, wrestling with your subconscious mind, which has been in training your entire life. It developed clever, protective mechanisms even before you could speak. Your willpower has nothing on your subconscious, “won’t power.”
Take the case of a client of mine, who I'll call Jacqueline. She had been talking all year about her fantastic raw food and juice diet, which did not exist. Her family knew the spiel so well they could finish her sentences word for word.
In reality, white bread, sugar and processed foods were the perfect fellow conspirators in her subconscious mission to sabotage her positive intentions.
When I looked at her aura in our first session, I noticed Jacqueline had an unusual pattern. Her consciousness was fragmented and projected outward, about one meter in front of her body. This was where Jacqueline was storing her future.
“Your future never happens,” I said.
“I know!" Jacqueline replied. "I can’t wait to get to my future!"
Her eyes lit up as she described her future, as if it were a destination or utopia. For Jacqueline, it seemed the concept of the future was where all her joy was stored. I explained that there was no way she would be able to create a better future until she was in the here and now.
Immediately, the space around her physical body, which represented her present, was in a white, blurry fog. Fog is a very useful disguise in the aura. Our negative behaviors can remain undetected forever, if they have a nice, fluffy fog in which they can hide.
This fog was concealing Jacqueline’s diet sabotage behaviours. Jacqueline’s subconscious had created this fog in order to protect herself from her own judgment and lack of self worth, resulting from the negative behaviors.
I returned Jacqueline’s missing energy and focus to her present. Her lifestyle, which changed the next day, now reflected a woman with a strengthened inner power and in command of her life.
In relation to habits and addictions, fog, liver stagnation, disempowered patterns are some of the many auric indications I have witnessed. However there are many more.
Others include: Emotional ties or cords, which connect the person to an object of addiction; numbing patterns designed to “anesthetize” against emotional pain (often involving alcohol or sugar habits), and wall-like barriers, which keep a person in isolation via de-energizing habits.
When you set out to release a habit, first be kind to yourself and thank your subconscious for creating the protective mechanism. It did its best to help, but its way of going about it was not useful. Acknowledge the cause of the need for this protection and decide how you could replace the protection in a more constructive way.
I wish you strength and look forward to seeing your picture in a health magazine (or, at least, your being the picture of health)!
