Have you ever noticed that when it’s a slow news day that the news programs dredge up old stories of tragedies that occurred on this day ten or twenty years ago? The same applies to the weather; if the weather is going be good and uneventful, the Weather Channel begins to rehash Hurricane Sandy or the Oklahoma tornados to remind us that tragedy is just around the corner and could strike at any time.
Why do they do this? Because sensationalism sells advertising! Advertisers want you to be at a peak emotional state either grieving over the tragedies of others orhappy that it isn’t happening to you. They do this because when you are in these states, you are more susceptible to receiving their subliminal programming to associate their product with these states.
Why would they do this? Because when you get into these states again you will remember their product and be more prone to buy it when you are stocking up at the stores for the next supposed ‘tragedy’ that is just around the corner. They are programming your emotional triggers with their brand to secure their place in the market.
Now, why can’t you do this to yourself in a positive way? Can’t you program yourself to accept the bounty of the omniverse and that you have the ability to choose anything that you want? Don’t you know that when you ask the Divine for something that it is given? However, it doesn’t just drop in your lap. You have to be aware enough to recognize the opportunitieswhen they arise and ACT on them!
Nothing that is divinely given can be recognized by you until you share Divine love with another; for in doing so, you remove the internal blockages imposed by your erroneous beliefs that obscure your recognition of divine opportunities. Know how your brain and body works. Know how you react and proact. Know that your spirit affects your mind; that your mind affects your emotions and that your emotions affect your body. Know that your body affects your spirit as well. Each aspect of your being affects the other and when we are aware of this, we can recognize the difference between reacting to emotional triggers and proacting from your spiritual center.
Where do you come from? Where do you ‘want’ to come from? It is your choice either way. Trusting in the Divine is the key to your ultimate freedom from emotional triggers. Enjoy the great weather without the doom and gloom rehashing of the sensationalists who want to hock their ‘answers’ to your perceived fears of the next inevitable disaster. Be in control of your destiny by letting it all go into oblivion. Don’t attach any emotion to their predictions and you will be free of their predictions. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A.
