When you believe in things that you don’t understand
then you suffer. Superstition ain’t the way…
I once read a story about a family that seemed to be doomed. All the males in that particular family passed away before they turned 55 ! Imagine being a boy or a man in that family having such a future prospect ! Imagine the conversations they must have had at family reunions…
Some family members called it bad luck, others called it fate. Some believed their family had been cursed or that someone had put a spell on them.
We often don’t realize that our life situations are caused by our beliefs, that our superstitions can turn into self-fulfilling prophecies and that our convictions can harm or even kill us !
We all know someone whose sudden death surprised us because we thought they probably were the healthiest person in the world, they took care of their body and were moderate in life.
We often sabotage ourselves : we focus on the things we don’t want or take action with the wrong intentions, we let fear constantly be our motivator and advisor !
We put conditions and expectations on things that haven’t happened yet, this way attracting them in our reality !
“I eat healthy because I don’t want to get cancer…” “I don’t do that because I am afraid I am going to fail…”
“I must lose weight before I lose my partner…If he continues to behave like this, I’m going to have a heart attack !”
We believe that certain objects or people are the cause of our good fortune or misfortune, our good luck or our bad luck.
“A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.”
These beliefs keep us trapped in an endless loop, a repetitive cycle of disaster until we break the pattern, until we consciously release our belief in them.
It is our belief that creates expectancy in our subconscious mind and attracts a “lucky” or a “bad” situation.
No one has really power over us unless we believe they do ! No outside forces are needed to put us back where we belong : in the driver’s seat of our life !
Do not suffer from these superstitions. Be positively fearless ! Have faith and believe in yourself !
Phuro! Be inspired!
2 gedachten over “Superstitions”
Self-fulfilling prophecies, geen bijgeloof. Doet me denken aan metafysica; Metafysica heeft geen wetenschappelijk karakter, het is een filosofische stroming. Het is het gedachtenspel achter het “zijn” van iets en het is dus niet waarneembaar met onze zintuigen. Metafysica probeert informatie te geven over de werkelijkheid in zijn totaliteit. Vaak wordt er dus gespeculeerd over non-materie.
Boeiend op zijn allerminst ! De (non) materie houdt mij vooral nieuwsgierig en “wakker” 🙂
