Regrets and remorse are the opposite of improving God’s plan. Regrets and remorse is your ego saying, “Oh, I did that wrong” which is really saying, “I screwed up God’s plan.” Here’s what you need to understand. Not only is it not your plan, not only is the plan that’s in effect greater than anything you can imagine, but best of all is, no matter what you do…
“You cannot screw up God’s plan.” It’s all in order.
For example, I was dealing with a patient one day who had regrets and remorse issues and he was second-guessing himself on what he did. I responded with this really powerful statement, “You cannot screw up God’s plan.” Everything is in order. It’s your choice on how to view it. It’s your choice on how to respond to it.
Another factor in dis-ease is anger. Anger is your ego trying to control or improve something God created, and this something is “very good” as it states in the Bible. And your ego looks at it and says, “No, it’s not very good. I know what very good is. Very good would be if they were more like me. Or you and your ego think/say “If I was them, I would be doing it this way,” or “How dare they do that?” or “Don’t they know who I am?” Anger is your frustration trying to improve God’s plan. and you can’t improve God’s plan, it's already perfect!
This next key factor for wellness is something that your ego is going to dislike, but if you incorporate this concept, you will be in the state of wellness where dis-ease cannot exist. Using the simple phrase, “Resist nothing” brings about a state of wellness. Because, only the things you resist can harm you, and if you don’t resist, it cannot cause any harm.
Now, the challenge with this is the ego wants to be in control. The ego has its own plan. The ego does not like your non-resistance because in its mind, it shows weakness. “Oh, we’re not resisting so they must be winning” is what the ego is saying.
Recently, I was completing business transaction, and we were actually foreclosing on a property (we were the lender/mortgage holder), and I was working close with the borrower. We made arrangements for us to gain possession of the property prior to the foreclosure, so we received keys to the property and reinstated the permits. We stabilized the building and made improvements to protect the asset.
It was at this point that I met with the borrower and he said, that he had spoken to his attorney and was told to take back the keys and to take back possession of the property. Now, we just went through this big contractual obligation where we even paid money for these rights! So my response was simply, “Here are the keys.”
The borrower then stated that he was going to “go downtown and get the permits to demolish the building.” My calm response was, “Fine, knock yourself out. Have fun.” His reply was, “And we’re going to sue you.” I quickly responded with, “You can’t sue me because we’re not resisting. We’re not fighting with you. You want the keys. Here they are. If you want to knock down the building, then knock it down.” I then reminded him that the building didn’t really belong to me, or to him. Everything belongs to God under the Universal Law of possession. Whatever you want to do is fine. I decided that I wasn’t going to give him my peace or buy into the attorney’s idea. I later walked away from that table with the keys, with possession of the property, with everything in full force and they did not knock down the building.
So, the idea is if you don’t resist it, how can it harm you? It cannot. Resist nothing. You are not in charge. You’re just the observer. You’re in charge of your thoughts. You’re in charge in the way in which you respond to situations, but your ego says, “I can.” “I can improve God’s plan. I can improve God’s creations.” Judgment tells you that you can improve individuals, situations, circumstances, and people around you, that you have a better plan than God. The problem is, these ideas do not promote wellness… they promote dis-ease.
It’s so much easier and so much more peaceful if you resist nothing. You’ve got to remember that God looks down at everything and sees everything in order. When you look and see everything in order, you too are at peace. When you have that peace, dis-ease cannot occur. Dis-ease cannot even think about being present.
Number three, be the observer of your thoughts, thoughts are prayers to the Universe. They’re tied to emotions. Emotions equal your health. When you become aware of this statement, what exactly do I choose to allow to take away the peace of God of which I can access at any time?
What do I allow to take away my peace?
For wellness, bring awareness to when your peace is jeopardized or compromised, and you minimize it by changing the way in which you respond to it. If less than five times a-year your peace was challenged, it is less likely that dis-ease exist, because you know it, you observe it, you monitor it, and deal with it by changing your view of it to bring you peace.
Not only do you have to observe your thoughts, but you have to observe the spoken words. Spoken words are commands to the Universe. The number of times I need to correct clients and patients in the way they are speaking, in the words they choose, because they’re literally commanding the opposite of wellness, is often uncountable. Examples are the phrases “that ____ was to die for”or “over my dead body,” etc… Be conscious of the words and phrases that are spoken around you and the words and phrases that you use. They are commands to the Universe. The Universe takes it literally and it begins the manifestation process.
Also, the written words, anything you write, written words are contracts to the Universe and the Universe takes it literally. So, your bumper stickers, your screen names, things that you write, things that you express in writing are contracts with the Universe, very powerful.
Another idea, don’t allow people around you to talk about medical issues. What happens is when people are discussing their medical issues, it becomes a focal part of the conversation, becomes focal part of their identity. They’re no longer this person. They are now this new person with the “issue” and because of the “issue,” they get attention. They have something to talk about.They’re somebody now or they think they’re somebody now.
The last thing you want entering into your conscious or unconscious idea is an identity with a physical issue. Let’s look at our example of when a person yawns and another person on the other side of the room starts yawning. What went across the room? The idea.
Looking back at our sneeze example, do you think it’s any different when somebody coughs or sneezes on the other side of the room and next thing you know, somebody on the other side of the room starts coughing and sneezing? Were there really these “sneezing molecules,” some germs that went across the room that infiltrated a body that couldn’t handle it? That their immune system was so weak it could not deal with whatever got across the room? No. What they couldn’t handle was the idea. “This person sneezed, so this means I must get this and sneeze.”
Well, let’s take it up a notch.
This person’s talking about their personal condition, all the treatments they go through and all the “stuff,” and all the symptoms and the stuff happening, and things falling off and all kinds of things. Where is that going to end? Is it in your conscious? Yes. Is it in your unconscious? Yes.
How healthy is that? Do not...and I mean it when I say it...do not allow people to discuss their medical, physical issues around you. That is not conducive for your wellness. In fact, it’s quite the opposite and you’re not helping them. You are fueling their fire and reinforcing their identity. There’s no benefit in it. This why throughout my teachings. the term “issue” is used instead of using a medical term.
