I recently took a one day workshop called Language of Mastery. The instructor, Coleman Kelly, has given his permission for me to supply his email address to any of my readers who may have questions or who may be interested in setting up a Language of Mastery workshop in your area. Coleman does travel to do workshops.
The email for Coleman Kelly is firstname.lastname@example.org .
Here is an example of what I learned in the workshop about changing my choice of thoughts and words.
I don't seem to be manifesting what I want in my life.
(Want equals lack. I discussed this in my first article on Conscious Language which you will find at http://patriciasingleton.blogspot.com/2007/10/conscious-language-using-the-law-of.html .)
I am manifesting my abundance. I am rich.
(Manifesting---any "ing" word---is in the future. You want to manifest in the present.)
I manifest my abundance. I am rich.
I express the abundance that I know I am.
One very important activity that I sometimes forget to do (Change that to: I choose to do) is to breathe. Holding your breath holds you back. (Change that to: To move forward, I choose to breathe.
Even better: To move forward, I breathe.)
Another thing that I learned in the workshop is that eating a lot of sugar is usually a sign of a person who is avoiding grief. The same is true for a person with a blood sugar problem such as diabetes. You feel like the sweetness of life is gone. Coleman told us that suppressed grief is waiting to be transmuted into joy.
Using the above information, here is the process that I went through in the class. The words in italics are the thoughts of the wounded little girl that still lives inside of me.
1. Eating too much sugar, having a blood sugar problem
Are you avoiding grief?
2. Grief about what?
People don't love me. They use me. They abuse me.
At this point, I was crying. Tears are a sign that says this is a core issue.
3. (New thought) I choose to feel with ease.
Avoiding grief means not feeling the grief and the underlying pain. I personally stuff feelings down with food. Others may use alcohol, drugs, smoking, excessive exercise, sex, etc.
I choose to feel with ease gives me permission to access the feelings. Feeling emotions allows me to release them.
4. (New thought) I choose to feel my connection to myself---to my body.
As an incest survivor, I disconnected from my feelings and my body years ago. In order to heal, I choose to feel my connection to myself and to my body.
5. (New thought) I choose to love myself.
As an incest survivor, for years I hated myself. I didn't think that I was lovable.
6. (New thoughts)
I love myself.
I love my body.
I am lovable.
I am love.
At the beginning of the above process, I felt grief, hurt and sadness.
At the end of the process, I felt a release of the grief and a return to joy. I felt love for myself.
Some other conscious language statements to use:
1. I am Light and Love. (Light and love leave no room for grief or sadness.)
2. I am connected to the Source of All that is.
3. I am connected to my Higher Self.
4. I choose to understand. I really choose to understand.
This article is my interpretation of what I have learned so far about the use of Conscious Language. My ideas of how it works will probably change as I learn more. What I have shared is my understanding of how the process works. Remember that I am just beginning to learn how to do this.
I choose to learn more. I grow as I learn. My understanding changes as I grow. For more information, contact Coleman Kelly or go to the website listed at the beginning of the article.
