Why People Snap: The Black Sheep Syndrome

By Cathy Eck   Looking for Blame in all the Wrong Places After a shooting or tragedy like Sandy Hook Elementary, Columbine, or Aurora, Colorado, people always look for something or someone to blame.  And they never look in the right place, the cause.  I watched an interview recently with a young woman who was […]

Proof, Initiation, and the movie, “Life of Pi”

Letting Go of Beliefs 101

  By Cathy Eck   How Do I Know A Belief From the Truth? I’m often asked the question, “What do I mean by beliefs?”  People can relate to a belief in ghosts, Santa Claus, or the bogeyman.   They can understand a belief in a certain religion, cultural concept, or family ritual.  But few […]

Look Under the Rug (The Anatomy of Personalities)

By Cathy Eck   Always Look Under the Rug My little sister was a real handful.  If she didn’t want to obey my mother, she just pretended to do whatever my mother wanted and then hid any evidence to the contrary.  She was a skinny child and so my mother bought her some tiny chewable […]

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.

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.

Finding Your Abundance Mentality

By Cathy Eck  In the ancient world, abundance was considered natural and normal.  The idea of rich and poor was a fallen state just like the state of good and evil.  The ancient masters manifested whatever they needed when they needed it.  That was living from the abundance mentality.  They didn’t feel the need to […]

Have Opinions, Ideas, Not Beliefs

By Cathy Eck   Every Problem is Caused by Beliefs Our world is filled with avoidable problems.  Every problem can be solved by finding the beliefs that caused it and eliminating those beliefs. I know that is a radical statement; but it is true.  I’ve applied that theory for years; and each day, I fix […]

The Ridiculous Notion of Ethical Manipulation

 By Cathy Eck   What is Ethical Manipulation? Recently, I listened to a webinar on blog marketing.  The leader said she was teaching us how to market using ethical manipulation.  I’m not much for marketing, which you probably know already if you read my blog.  But, I’m always open to new ideas that are ethical. […]

The Huna Golden Rule: You Can Only Harm Yourself

By Cathy Eck   The Huna Golden Rule The ancient Hawaiian Hunas had a powerful version of the Golden Rule:  “What you think you do to others, you actually do to yourself.”   It is a powerful way of thinking.  In fact, when we follow this Golden Rule, we start to see a whole new reality.  […]

  • 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.
