Letting Go Of Being A Victim

Quotefancy-2536305-3840x2160

A Commentary by a Spiritual Being in a Physical Body Bag by Mitch Santell

The only way that you will survive what is about to happen in America is to be aware, awake, and to use some common sense.

Listen to your own self-talk. Can you get out of your own way? Can you look at your own patterns of how you cope and observe without judgment?

The reason I ask these things is that over the past week, or so I have been receiving phone calls or emails or texts mainly from women friends who seem to be losing it.

Most of my male friends seem to be coping with an everchanging world, but it is you women folk, that I am sincerely and seriously worried about.

As you read this, you might ask yourself, “How Do I Let Go Of Being A Victim?”

Answer…wait for it:

“Stop Needing To Be Right!”

In America, we use “being right” like a drug, which means I make YOU WRONG. There is no right or wrong; there is only how you see the world. Right now a part of you feels ungrounded right?

Six Habits that Lead to Groundedness

The basic habits that lead to this kind of resiliency, and a feeling of groundedness are things you can practice every single day:

  1. Let ourselves feel it. When we’re feeling uncertainty, instead of rushing to solve it … or too distracting ourselves or comforting ourselves with food or shopping … we can let ourselves feel the uncertainty. I’m not talking about engaging in a narrative about what the uncertainty is like and why it’s so bad — but instead feeling it physically in your body. Where is the feeling located in your body? Can you give it some attention and curiosity? Can you stay with it for a few moments? This habit of letting ourselves feel the uncertainty and stress is transformative — every bit of anxiety becomes a place to practice, an opportunity to be present with ourselves. It becomes a chance to create a new relationship with our experience.
  2. Learn that it’s OK to feel groundlessness. You are feeling anxiety because of the uncertainty of your situation. But that’s because uncertainty becomes a reason to freak out. What if, instead, we learned that this groundless, uncertain feeling is actually just fine? It might not be completely pleasant, but it’s nothing to panic about. In fact, it can be an opportunity to find joy and appreciation in the groundlessness — what is there to appreciate in this feeling of complete openness? Start to shift how you see and react to this groundlessness, embracing it rather than panicking about it.
  3. Give ourselves love. In the middle of stress and uncertainty, instead of engaging in our old habits of shutting down or avoiding, of worrying and fretting … can we try a new habit of giving ourselves, love? This is a way of being compassionate and friendly with ourselves, no matter what we’re doing. It’s like giving love to a child who is in pain — the compassion and love pour out of our hearts. Can we practice this for ourselves?
  4. Simplify by being fully present with one thing. We have so much going on that it can all be overwhelming. Can you simplify by focusing on just one thing right now? Trust that you’ll take care of the other things when it’s needed. Instead, be fully present with this single task. It can be something important, like working on that writing that you’ve been putting off for days. Or it can be something small, like washing this one dish or drinking this one cup of tea. Be fully with it, and savor the experience fully. This leads to a feeling of groundedness and helps us to not feel as frazzled.
  5. Find the joy in being fully present and savoring. The item above, of simplifying by doing one thing, can feel like quite a shift for many of us. It might feel like a sacrifice, not constantly switching tasks and being on social media and checking phones. But it can be a way of opening up to the moment, treating yourself with a little focus, joyfully savoring whatever you’ve chosen to do with this moment of your life.
  6. Learn to love being resilient. Resilience is a matter of saying “No Big Deal” to any kind of uncertainty that arises, of savoring and being present, of giving ourselves love and being present with whatever uncertainty is coming up for us. Resilience is not blowing everything up to End of the World level, just because it’s not under control. Resilience is feeling grounded in the middle of chaos (even if there’s stress present), and finding joy in being in that uncertainty. Resilience is taking a breath and then savoring that breath. It can be a beautiful thing if you learn to love it.

Try these habits today whenever you notice stress, anxiety, uncertainty. They take practice, but with time, they lead to a feeling of being centered and grounded.

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

Commenting on Brain Power by Mitch Santell

Start Mitching

Each day when you wake up, you get to make a decision. What is that decision? Today will be fantastic, or maybe I should have stayed in bed. (That is the decision). Your brain has millions and millions of neurons that are firing at all times. You can tell your mind whatever you wish, but it is still up to you.

One of the ways that I keep my brain calibrated positively is to avoid complainers as much as possible. Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to complain about it, but I am talking of the deeper connection we have with our soul.

You cannot control what others say or do or even think, but you can control how you feel.

Here is something that you may find of interest in your quest for a most positive future. How is that possible? By changing your thoughts now.


Negative people are almost always complainers, without fail. Worse, complainers are not satisfied in keeping their thoughts and feelings to themselves; instead, they’ll seek out some unwilling participant and vent. 

Undoubtedly annoying to their friends and family, these “Debbie Downers” aren’t to be chastised but understood. 

You see, we all complain from time-to-time. In fact, researchers from Clemson University empirically demonstrated that everyone grumbles on occasion. Some just do so much more often than others. 

Complainers generally fall into one of three groups:

Attention-seeking Complainers: People who seek attention through complaining; always dwelling on about how they’ve got it worse than everyone else. Ironically, (rational) people are apt to ignore outright the person rather than waste mental energy focusing on their negativity. 

Chronic Complainers: These folks live in a constant state of complaint. If they’re not voicing about their “woe is me” attitude, they’re probably thinking about it. 

Psychologists term this compulsory behavior rumination, defined as “repetitively going over a thought or a problem without completion.” Rumination is, unfortunately, directly relayed to the depressed and anxious brain. 

Low-E.Q. Complainers: ‘E.Q.’ is short for emotional quotient, and constituents within this group are short on E.Q. What I.Q. is to intelligence, E.Q. is to emotional understanding. 

These people aren’t interested in your perspective, thoughts, or feelings. You’re a sounding board – a brick wall. As such, they’ll dwell and vent at every opportunity. 

Is the Brain to Blame?

The answer is (mostly) “Yes.”

America On Trial

A “Can you Believe This Now?” Commentary by Mitch Santell

To be blunt, I never thought in my entire life that I would have to re-post something like this. Are you aware of what’s going on? Real censorship is here in America and with Apple, Inc. handing over 130 Million Customers to the Chinese Government, it’s only a matter of time before it happens here.

What disturbs me most? I decided to start blogging again, and I needed a place to vent. While I work on Big Reggae Mix, my internet radio station streaming in San Diego, I still feel the need as a producer and content creator to share my viewpoint. I am entitled to it, it is what we Americans do, and it is guaranteed in our Bill of Rights.

 

What worries me now is that I launched AfterHollywood.Online here at WordPress because I have always trusted this platform.

Now I am watching as many of my favorite “independent thinkers” and “truthers” get taken offline.

Right now I am looking at other non-WordPress platforms in case I need to move all of my content over to a new home.

This is sad for me, I thought I had a new home here at WordPress, but if my friends can’t figure out why their content got pulled, it’s only a matter of time before my site is removed.

Follow Up, Follow Through & Accountability

Written by Mitch Santell

The one response I dislike more than any other is “it’s not my fault, that is just how the system works.”

If you have any intention of living an authentic life, then you are going to have to take full responsibility for your own life.

The essence of playing the game of life is that you are the captain of your ship.

“Enlightenment is a destructive process.

It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier.
Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth.

It’s seeing through the facade of pretence.

It’s the complete eradication of everything we
imagined to be true.”
― Adyashanti

According to Adyashanti in his book “The Way Of Liberation,” he has discovered and written about The Five Foundations.

The Five Foundations are:

Clarify Your Aspiration

Unconditional Follow ~ Through

Never Abdicate Your Authority

Practice Absolute Sincerity

Be a Good Steward of Your Life


You want to take back your own life? Man, oh man, I think that Adyashanti (born Stephen Gray) is onto something with his book and he even gives it away free online. Here is his website: www.adyashanti.org
