If You Want to Know the Back Story . . . Part 4

      I wanted to share one more quote from Anita Moorjani's amazing book, Dying to Be Me.  It talks about how she connects with her inner guidance.  She contrasts this with being driven to please people and being externally focused.  After her near death experience, she learned to be internally focused.  One of the interesting things she learned is that her internal world is reflected in her external world.

I found that having an inside-out view means being able to fully trust my inner guidance.  It's as though what I feel has an impact on my entire universe.  In other words, because I'm at the center of my cosmic web, the Whole is affected by me.  So as far as I'm concerned, if I'm happy, the universe is happy.  If I love myself, everyone else will love me.  If I'm at peace, all of creation is peaceful, and so on.  If things seemed challenging, instead of trying to change them physically (which is what I did pre-NDE), I began checking in with my internal world.  If I'm stressed, anxious, unhappy, or something similar, I go inward and tend to that first.  I sit with myself, walk in nature, or listen to music until I get to a centered place where I feel calm and collected.  I noticed that when I do so, my external world also changes, and many of the obstacles just fall away without my actually doing anything.

     And she believes that our internal state affects others as well.

When we get in touch with that infinite place within us where we are Whole, then illness can't remain in the body.  And because we're all connected, there's no reason why one person's state of wellness can't touch others, elevating them and triggering their recovery.  And when we heal others, we also heal ourselves and the planet.  There's no separation except in our own minds. 

     Fascinating ideas.
