All the UK and Ireland Psychology of Vision trainers are in Hawaii for our yearly training with Chuck and Lency Spezzano. Occasionally we leave the seminar room and celebrate together as you can see!
One of the themes in the workshop is escaping our belief in scarcity. Our mind and our world is based on the belief that locks us into what looks like a closed system, that there is a finite amount of time, or resources or money to go around. This concept is the basis of our scarcity, and leads to a mentality of those who have and those who have not, destructive competition and winners and losers. In this scenario we have a perception that there is an enemy, there is someone who opposes us, someone we have to fight to get our needs met. So there will always be an enemy in the form of a person, an institution, or a situation, such as unemployment or starvation, that is grounded in our scarcity and fear.
How can we escape this belief? It is really damaging and locks us into this closed system we maintain. A first step would be to recognise how we limit our minds. Every thought we have about an opponent, about our wish to be the good guy and have others be the bad guys, about any lack in our lives, just reinforces our self-limitations. If we turn in the opposite direction we start to see a world of infinite possibilities, of limitless potential. This is the true nature of the world – that there is an abundance of all things. There is no beginning and no end, the true nature of this universe is that it is infinite and we need to recognise that we have imprisoned ourselves in a world of 3 or 4 dimensions.
We really recognise how this dynamic is reflected in our personal life and in our business life. It is such a benefit to look at our own beliefs that there is an ‘enemy’, and how we hid this belief in trying to be the good one or the right one (or the bad one and the wrong one!) At this training it feels like we have removed a few limitations and opened a doorway to much greater possibilities.
If you recognise a pattern of scarcity or conflict in your life, imagine now that there is door closed in front of you representing this pattern. As you let the door fall away, see an ocean of possibility and energy instead. The symbol of the cross is an ancient expression of the choice between a horizontal limited reality and a longer vertical limitless journey into the eternal – an expression of the finite and the infinite and the choice that we have between them.
