The Illusion of the Fight or Flight Response and Stress

By Cathy Eck   Fight or Flight Response Science tells us that the fight or flight response is real.  They say it’s a normal reaction to all the scary things out there…things that we can’t protect ourselves from.  We label the fight or flight condition stress. Medicine admits that most diseases are the result of […]

Your Knowledge is Killing You, and You Don’t Know It

By Cathy Eck   To Fall or Not to Fall; That is the Question Even if you are very non-religious, as I am, you have to realize that we live in a culture and marinate in a soup of beliefs that stem from the story of Adam and Eve.  That single story created a belief […]

Incurable Means the Cure is Within

 By Cathy Eck Incurable Every day billions of dollars are spent on therapists, doctors, drugs, and insurance companies in order to heal mental and physical diseases.  What if all diseases are nothing more than an illusion?  What if they are simply a lack of ease as the word disease suggests?  What if we are all hypnotized to believe that […]

Near Death Experience or Letting Go of Everything at Once

By Cathy Eck   Near Death Experience About every six months, I get an email with the story of Mellen-Thomas Benedict’s near death experience.  In case you have missed this frequently circulated email, here is the link to his website:  http://www.mellen-thomas.com/stories.htm.  I’ve always enjoyed his story.  I read it nearly every time it comes my […]

Addictions, Habits, and Obsessions: Breaking the Circle

Help! I’m addicted to food, drugs, porn, sex, washing my hands, television, cleaning, pleasing people, watching CNN, Facebook, Toddlers and Tiaras, gambling, wearing my wife’s bra…   Addictions, Habits and Obsessions I often get questions on the topic of obsessions, habits, and addictions and decided it was time to write a post.  This is a […]

The End of the Victimhood Advantage

If we go inside and really look at why we are stuck in victimhood, we often find that it is exactly what we needed. The caterpillar doesn’t feel victimized when it goes inward, and that is what allows it to be transformed into a beautiful butterfly. When we use victimhood as an advantage, fuel for our story, we get stuck; and we don’t dissolve our past as we should. We lose our opportunity to be reborn.

Getting Beyond Painful Memories

By Cathy Eck   Painful Memories Color Our Future Painful memories are very important to let go because when we hold on to the beliefs and emotions connected with a painful memory, our future is colored by our past.  And yet, most people avoid the painful memory, feeling like there is no use in dredging […]

Ending Struggle

It is tempting to jump in and help others when we see them struggle. But often helping others is not the best gift we can give. Struggle is necessary if one has the belief that they learn through struggle.

  • Beliefs! The Lies that Blind You!

    The word belief has the word "lie" within it, hinting at its purpose.

    The word belief has the word lie within it because every belief is a lie. We lose ourselves when we confuse beliefs with the truth.

    As we let go of beliefs, we change our minds. As we change our minds, we change our relationships. As we change our relationships, we change our world.

    The most loving thing we can do is to drop our beliefs and judgments about others and set them free. When we free others, we also free ourselves.

    Positive thinking is not something that you need to do; your true, authentic Self IS positive. Find your Self and you will never have a negative thought again.

    Used properly, your emotions can lead you down the shortest path to your authentic Self. Denying or suppressing them is a ticket to hell.

    No matter how ornate your mask, your true Self is much more beautiful. Be Your Self!

    Many will attempt to fill you with their truth; but real and lasting transformation is about letting go of your beliefs and unveiling your OWN truth.

    Esoteric means hidden. Esoteric wisdom means hidden wisdom. Esoteric healing means to heal by finding the hidden cause.

    The ancient wisdom keepers lived their lives based on the law of cause and effect. They never fixed a problem because a problem is an effect of a mental cause. Today, we call the mental causes beliefs.

    In modern times we've become so good at projecting and suppressing our beliefs that we hide the causal beliefs even from ourselves.

    We often confuse our beliefs or opinions with the truth. This causes our problems to become chronic or permanent.

    If our mind believes something is true, it won't let it go. We first have to discriminate between true and false (beliefs). Then we can let the beliefs go. What remains is the truth.
