Shining A Light Inside My Head

Continuing the exercise I have set myself to re-read and blog my results from reading Creating A Bug Free Mind and Using A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

Person thinkingIn the past I have realized that I am guilty of procrastination and ultimately quitting any major change I want to undertake in my life. There have been a few exceptions; stopping smoking, making the move from a place I lived for 18 years, starting a business and a couple of others. The thing is though that it is always in retrospect that I realize there was procrastination, after the fact, before then giving up altogether, or moving on to the next promising new shiny object.

Over the last few weeks I have slowly become conscious of a growing realization of some kind of shift in my awareness of my ego’s responses to my procrastination and my urge to give up trying out something new or different. The difference is that I am more and more aware of the ego’s thought process, the procrastination or whatever, in the moment. At first it was an aha moment. So far it has not actually changed my Continue reading

What Are You Waiting For?

Continuing the exercise I have set myself to re-read and blog my results from reading Creating A Bug Free Mind and Using A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

I accept where I am now. I am no longer waiting. I am taking steps (albeit baby steps) in the general direction of the things I “want”. I find I am using the word “want” less and less but I sometimes can’t think of an appropriate alternative when I am speaking with someone. I know this is a good thing as I am conscious of the lack that is inherent in the word “want”. So, I started doing things like doing the quotes “…” with my hands when saying it.

waitingAs soon as I realized that no-one was going to fix things for me I thought to myself that I had better get on with it – if I “want” something to happen then I need to stop waiting and go and do something about it. No-one is going to save me – I have given up “hope” that it is all going to work out in the end if I just stay in my comfort zone and stay addicted and keep watching TV and consuming.

So I am currently working to eliminate “wanting” and “waiting” and “hoping”. This keeps me in a state of lack. Instead I intend to focus on accepting what is, surrendering to what is, and doing what I can to move in the direction of my desires. Continue reading

No Worries!

Continuing the exercise I have set myself to re-read and blog my results from reading Creating A Bug Free Mind and Using A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

This week has been a week of revision for me. Here is a summary of everything I’ve learned so far from the bug free mind process.

1. My mind was in a state of chaos. It still is sometimes but I’m getting periods of order more regularly now.

2. 15 seconds of positive thought growing to 15 minutes every day forms a habit of being positive.

3. The chaos begins to calm and order begins to form.

4. I Accept myself as I am.

5. I Love myself as I am.

6. I Accept What Is – my current life situation, relationships, career, and financial position.

7. I Surrender to What Is – all of the above and anything else I can think of.

8. I stay present and in the now as much as possible.
