There Is No Spoon – How To Manipulate Reality
Part 1 of 3
This is the first in a three part series on what reality potentially is, from a truly practical perspective, forget philosophy and spiritual theory and pondering, what the f%*k can we do to actually get free, to improve our lives, to heal? That is the purpose of these three pieces.
The first step to improving any area of our lives, changing anything we are unhappy with or that needs adjustment is taking responsibility for what we don’t like. The more areas of our lives we can take responsibility for, the more power we have to make changes, and thus improve our quality of life. Makes sense.
Talk to most spiritual people and they’ll agree, sure, we create our reality. Start asking questions and you’ll soon be told that maybe they have created some good kids, but they don’t know why they misbehave in school, or they created the great job, but not the asshole co-worker, or the lovely house but not the central heating which continues to cause problems, or the traffic on the way home from work, or the war in the middle East. You see where I’m going.
How about everything that enters your life, I mean absolutely every single thing, is a mirror of your consciousness.
We’re all aware of “you spot it you got it”. Well let’s take that a few steps further, how about everything that enters your life, I mean absolutely every single thing, is a mirror of your consciousness. That means if you turn on the TV and flick through the channels, every random station and program is an energetic reflection of your own vibration. So the wars you come across, the reality TV show or sports game or documentary on how the rain forest is being destroyed, is you, it’s all you, an energetic reflection, a mirror of your vibration. When you walk into the supermarket all those people are in some way frequency specific to you, a baby cries two aisles away and it irks you, somebody blocks the aisle with their trolley, you have to ask them to let you pass. It’s all your reflection, everything.
We’ve got three camps:
- I don’t fully create my reality, I do what I can, but there is lots of coincidences and random occurrences, and outside influences.
- I co-create my reality. I can focus and pour my energy into manifesting an object or experience or healing, but, I co-create, so the energy of those around me, or the collective energy of the world could sweep through my tiny reality. In short I am still at the mercy of others.
- Everything that enters my awareness is in a way tailor made for me. Everything I see is all a projection of my consciousness, I control everything in some way, the “world”, the “game” responds off the differing layers of consciousness I am not consciously aware of, triggering me, serving me, pleasing me and frustrating me.
Ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian practice of cleaning our consciousness, in short, being grateful for everything that enters our lives, be it enjoyable or not so much. To be grateful for it, make peace with it, and thus release it and move on. When challenging feelings and experiences present themselves we have a habit of trying to escape, the obvious methods are through distraction using alcohol, television, our phone, food etc, or simply running away. But regardless of distraction, we rarely take responsibility for what is presented, the aim is to get away from it as quickly as possible. What is being presented to me more and more at the moment, is that all that enters my life is my reflection, all the wonderful stuff, and the stuff I’m ashamed of or dislike or try to ignore, all of it. We are magnets, drawing to us 3D representations of our overall vibration. When I look at this with new insights I see how incredibly lucky we are, how gifted this tool is. In every moment, if I choose, I can simply look around, look around you right now, at your surroundings, the people, traffic, noises, quiet, it all vibrates with you, the “good” stuff and the “bad” stuff.
Hew Len with the help of Joe Vitale brought Ho’oponopono to the world in a book called Zero Limits. Legend has it that Hew Len was a psychiatric doctor in a hospital in Hawaii. This hospital contained patients who had been there long term, they would likely never be released, they were too far gone, it was that kind of place. Over a period of four years Len managed to cure or heal these patients and they were all released. So this is my understanding of what happened, Len sat in his office, read over the files of these patients and “cleaned” on them, as he “cleaned”, they improved and bit by bit the overall energy of the hospital improved, staff morale increased, people were happier at work, and all in all the place became a better place to be and bit by bit one thing led to another and the patients began to be released.
So how did Hew Len clean?
Len recognised the conditions of the patients as his responsibility, as a reflection of his own consciousness, thus he worked on himself, not on those outside of himself. He repeated four phrases repeatedly to himself, with feeling and belief: I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you. The practise of Ho’oponopono is simply repeating these phrases with feeling and belief during those challenging moments and thus healing this vibration. You see our inner frequency has drawn this experience to us, if we acknowledge this experience, and make peace with it, heal it, the vibration changes and thus we will no longer draw that vibrational experience to us again.
Hew Len Discussing Ho’oponopono
Did Hew Len really Heal The Patients?
About ten years ago my motorbike was stolen while I was in work one day, so I was forced to go online and source a bike that I had wanted for quite a while, I found two, and bought the two, sold one, and later my stolen bike turned up so I got it back, and sold it. For a short time I had three bikes. (More info on manifestation in the next parts)
I could tell this story another way, the way I see it:
I once manifested two motorbikes after three months of daily focus exercises. I spent at least one hour every morning and an hour every evening practising breathing exercises, candle focus and various visualisations to pour my energy into this creation of this specific motorbike I wanted, and draw it to me. When my bike was stolen that day of course I did not realise what was happening, but by the time I had my stolen bike returned and still had the two newly purchased bikes I understood the process. Seek to heal or seek to manifest, how it may unfold may not be recognisable to the conscious mind.
So did Hew Len cure those patients? Well from the outside, things improved, pieces fell into place, and the universe rearranged itself to reflect healed and healthy patients.
We are blessed with constant feedback, when I choose to acknowledge it, and this is a learning process, to retrain the brain to be conscious, to look, pay attention, to my clothes, my car, the dirt, the traffic, the rain, the lovely people and difficult people. It’s all feedback to me that I can choose to take on board and work with, to chart a new course, or not. How do I chart that course? I love it, I look at this physical reality around me and take full responsibility for what is shown to me, I feel grateful for this reflection as I can see clearly what needs to be loved, healed and released.
