Turn Off those Channels…And Listen to Your SELF

By Cathy Eck   Other Worldly Channels I bet you thought I was going to write about turning off your TV.  Hell no!  People put their creative ideas on television; and you  and I have complete freedom to watch them or turn them off.  I am an awful follower, but I’m a wonderfully appreciative audience member.

Three Questions To Help You Cut Through the Illusion

By Cathy Eck   A lot of spiritual teachers tell people to ask “Who Am I?” over and over again until they know the answer.  It’s an interesting question, but I’m not sure that the answers that people seem to get are helpful.  Some seem to decide that they are something beyond the physical and […]

The Top Ten Biggest Lies Ever Told

By Cathy Eck The Biggest Lies Ever Told Every single day, we are bombarded by all kinds of crazy beliefs that are presented as the truth.  Our discrimination is taxed to the max.  Our nerves are stretched to capacity.  When we have no discrimination, we will head for the bottle, the frig, or kick our […]

Making Decisions

Any time you are faced with a decision, your inner male (intellect) and female (intuition or emotions) are not in harmony.  Heal the inner war, and the choice will become obvious. A powerful time to practice letting go of your beliefs is when you are faced with a decision.  A decision means that you have […]

Letting Go of A Belief

  By Cathy Eck To let go of any belief, you don’t have to do anything.  You just have to recognize that it is a belief, not the truth. At one time in my life, I would desperately pray to God, “Just tell me what to let go, and I’ll do it.”  I often hear […]

  • 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.
