Are We Conscious Enough to Change?

Thought for Today:

We unconsciously become the experience of previous generations, unless we consciously become the change.

sun in handsMost people in our modern world are aware that their DNA – the building blocks of our bodies – are passed on to us by our parents.

Attitudes and thought patterns are passed along in much the same way. Early on, our parents have the strongest influence and later our peer groups. Then, of course, we are all impacted by societal mental soup in which we swim. Few would argue that our own personality is in there somewhere impacting the person we become. However, we unconsciously accept and create models of the world based on how those around us see it.

The end product is often a human being holding strongly to beliefs he or she had almost no role in creating. Yet, our connection to those beliefs – that model of the world – are so strong many are willing to kill and die for them.

The question is sometimes asked, “If humans were capable of changing wouldn’t we have already changed?” The assumption in that question is that we cannot change because we have not changed.

Ethnic and religious wars spring up in our world over the simple right of the other to exist. Humans have and continue to enslave humans. Military, political, and economic empires are built on the sweat and tears of people we never see.

Can we change? Well, my answer is yes and no. If our plan is to unconsciously continue inheriting, then no we cannot and we will not change. On the other hand, if we choose become consciously aware of this habitual “mental DNA”, we most certainly can see an end to the unconsciousness.

Without artificial interference, there is little we can do with the physical genes we get other than make the most of them. Fortunately, our mental genes can easily be changed by us whenever we choose.

A Tale of Two American Idol Runners Up – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday January 20, 2010

This is interesting. Each day I receive Google alerts on the topic of affirmations. I like to keep up-to-date on writing, research, and news in the field.

Today there was an article from US Magazine where former American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee shared that affirmations have not helped her in her battle with Bulimia and depression. The article right beneath it in my Google alerts was a blog about Idol runner-up Adam Lambert. He mentioned, on his recent visit to the Oprah Show, that he regularly uses affirmations to exude positivity in his life.

So what gives? There are people in the “positive thinking movement” (if there really is such a thing) who might say that McPhee is doing something wrong. She must not be applying the principles correctly. Those kinds of statements are nonsense.

The fact is that affirmations work for many, many people to improve various areas of their lives and their feelings about themselves. However, they don’t work for everyone or in every situation.

They are one tool among several that people can use to improve their thinking, relax, and enjoy greater happiness. Prayer, meditation, therapy, a good support system, exercise, helping others, and (in extreme cases) medication may all help as well.

Affirmations are powerful tool for thought replacement. That’s what they’re good at. Taking a cycling negative thought you have and replacing with a positive thought. Affirmations may work for someone in one situation and not another.

Affirmations have helped me improve numerous areas in my own life, but there is one area that they have not helped me achieve my goals. So I appreciate that they are not always the right tool.

Abraham Maslow famously said, “If you the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”

Every situation and every person is not the same. For some people, affirmations are the end all and be all. For others, they may have to be augmented with other tools.

How can you know if affirmations will work for you and your situation? The same as with all the other tools – try them.

Three Keys to Successfully Using Affirmations:

  1. Repeat – you’ve had the negative thoughts or circumstances you’re trying to overcome for some time in your life. Saying a couple of affirmations once or twice is not going to overcome them. You must give your positive thoughts equal time – time to work.
  2. Believe – saying empty words that you don’t feel or don’t address an area of your life you’re ready to improve is worthless. You must repeat your affirmations often and you must work to believe that what you’re saying is true for you. There will be moments and days when you don’t believe. That’s OK. Don’t give up. Affirmations only succeed when you break through that initial resistance.
  3. Act – I’ve often said that affirmations without action to follow them are just wishful thinking. Saying you want to be a great tennis player to yourself will never happen if you never pick up the racket and hit the court.

May affirmations or some other method bring you all the peace, joy, and prosperity you deserve today.

We Still Have a Dream – The Affirmation Spot for Monday January 18, 2010

Today’s Affirmation:

“I believe in the future of humanity. I believe our species’ most prosperous, peaceful, and enlightened times are ahead. I am living my life in a way that turns that belief into reality.”

Today I am recognizing the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday. As has become tradition on this blog, I am doing so by posting the video of Dr. King’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech delivered August 28, 1963.

While Dr. King’s speech was aimed at the specific circumstances in The United States in the early 1960s, its message is timeless and transcendent. The speech’s contemporary appeal is attributable to universal message of hope for a better world and a better us. It dares each of to look into our hearts and measure ourselves according to a clear and powerful vision of what can be – what must become – on this planet.

I think its message is worthwhile to periodically watch, absorb, and share with those too young to remember those times and too young to yet understand our times.

It is a message that needs to be heard in Israel and Gaza, Pakistan and India, Iraq and Afghanistan, and, yes, in the halls of power in Washington, London, Moscow, Beijing, and at the UN in New York.

Nothing is more certain than that the people of this planet long and deserve to be free. They long to be free to pursue their goals, their dreams in their way.

In too many places, man’s inhumanity to man remains the rule of the day. Let us – all six billion of us – heed Dr. King’s wise words. Let us create a new dream where we learn live in peaceful disagreement and a spirit of sharing rather than in mutual disrespect, anger, and conflict . Let us create a world where we work together to bring about justice.

Then, we too, can say, “Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty. We’re fee at last.”
