More Inspiration From Back Pain

I still appreciate you! I hope your day is going special.

More wisdom from my back pain. The joy of life is that there is a lesson to everything that happens in life.

Two weeks ago, I wrote you about my back pain and how pushing through the pain to alleviate my back pain, was a good metaphor for pushing through the pain of changing your mindset to start a business and live your passions.

In the last month, I have experienced little to no back pain. In fact, when I lay down with my knees on my couch, when I get up, I feel amazing. I am so proud of myself.  However, history has shown me that, this can be a trap.

If I want to keep the back pain away, I should continue to do the exercises. However, if I continue to use pain as a motivator, then I will stop doing the exercises. That is because the pain is gone. Here is another metaphor.

Sometimes in life, pain can get you started, however, the pain is not that great for keeping you going. When you reach the point where you no longer feel the pain or that you are fine with the current level, then you will find it hard to keep going. You can try to remember the pain to the point where you start feeling the pain again. The danger of that is that soon you will associate the action you need to do to improve your life with pain.

For instance, if you are trying to lose weight and you look yourself in the mirror to yell at yourself to the point where you feel bad enough to feel motivated to work out, soon you will associate working out with feeling bad. Then exercise will become a burden and fear will be your motivator.

It does not have to be that way. You can use inspiration and celebration to keep you going. Feel good about where you are and imagine yourself at the finish line having an amazing time. Now when I do my back exercises, I celebrate the fact that my back feels great, that I am becoming more flexible, and I am looking at myself in the future with a strong healthy back.

Remember, when you hit the point where you are starting to feel relief with your change, it is time to switch over to inspiration. Use the joy of accomplishment to keep you excited and loving your goals. Soon, you will see great changes while feeling more joy. Hooray!

Of course, I am using my Emotion Elation Engine to keep me looking forward and feeling great. A course that is designed to use visualization and anchoring from NLP to align your emotions with your desires. I have used this technique to go from being afraid to speak in public, to enjoy speaking in public.

Inspiration from Back Pain

Thank you for being a part of this Joyous Expansion community! I am so thankful that you read these e-mails. I really appreciate your desire to live a better life.

In my desire to live a better life I like going to fun ceremonies. Last month I went to a cacao ceremony to open my heart and bring in more love. The ceremony also had a sound bath. During the sound bath, we would lay down and be bathed in the rich sounds of the crystal bowls.

During this sound bath, I was noticing that my back was feeling uncomfortable. I thought nothing of it as I was swept away in bliss. When I stood up my back was on fire. Which surprised me because I was not in back pain before this. I went home and read up on how to cure back pain. They suggested laying on my back with my feet up. That was exactly what I was doing that cause my back pain!

No way should be laying on my back cause pain. That is when I decided that I was going to do this exercise every night. For three weeks it was the intense pain after I was done. Thankfully someone suggested icy hot, which took away a lot of the pain. Soon after three weeks, I notice that my back was barely hurting, then the day before the next ceremony, my back was feeling perfectly fine.

Isn’t that a metaphor for transformational change? When you first start changing your mindset and try to live your passion, you will run into pain. Soon you will notice that things will get better and that all the hardships you did were worth the pain.

To help alleviate the pain of your growth I developed the Emotion Elation Engine. A course that is designed to use visualization and anchoring from NLP to align your emotions with your desires. I have used this technique to go from being afraid to speak in public, to enjoy speaking in public.

How Do you Escape?

Have you thought about how you spend your time? Do you spend your time in a way that serves you or hurts you?

I am reminded of one of my favorite comedians, Jim Gaffigan. He has a funny joke about McDonald’s. How McDonald’s sells billions of burgers and he hasn’t met anyone who claims to have eaten there. That there is something shameful about eating food from McDonald’s. Jim Gaffigan is a lot funnier when he tells his joke. After making us laugh with his McDonalds humor, he then hits us with the line, “Everyone has their own McDonalds.”

McDonald’s in this sense is a way that is how we waste our time. Not in the sense of using our time to recuperate or enjoyment through shows. I know Arrow on CW is not quality, however, I have a lot of fun watching it. I am more talking about watching the Cake Boss marathon on the Food Network. The type of wastes of time where you are not rejuvenating your spirit. The type of wastes of time you wonder, “Why did I spend 8 hours watching cat videos?”

This is escaping. Generally, it is done when you have something important to do that you do not want to handle right away. It is also done when you do not want to handle life anymore.

Your time is precious. Do your best to use it wisely. Time is the only resource you will never get back. When you are deliberate with your time, you can reach your dreams. Remember that.

Take time this week to look at how you spend your time. Are you enjoying what you are doing or are you putting off something that you should be doing now? There is nothing wrong with watching a television show or two, however, there is something wrong with 6 or 8. I take that back, there is something wrong if you have reached this far in this e-mail because you know you have more in this life to accomplish. You are not reading this because you want your time wasted.

Be aware of your time. Make deliberate decisions of rest and entertainment.
More information about being deliberate in my book.
