Hello lovely. 

Today, I want to talk about living a life IN BLOOM, by mastering the garden of your mind. 

Did you know your mind is a literal garden? 

Let me walk you through the golden gate and show you EXACTLY how:  

Point one:  Your thoughts are the seeds. 

The harvest can either be flowers or weeds.”

This famous metaphor speaks volumes about the influence our unconscious mind has on creating the results we get in life.

So, lets dig in (no pun intended).

First.  What’s in a thought?

Your subconscious mind consists of many things you may not be aware of or give much thought to day-to-day, such as 

-beliefs, 

-habits, 

-values, 

-attitudes 

and ....

-behaviours to name a few.

Think of the subconscious mind as the soil in which you plant your garden. 

It offers a foundation for the seeds to grow and take root, providing plants with the resources they need to take life and to thrive. 

However, the soil does not discriminate; 

it’s sole purpose is to support the ecosystem and it's immunity – the good, the bad and the ugly.

Your conscious mind consists of your thoughts and feelings about the things you notice and ultimately do. 

This is the part of your mind you are aware of day-to-day. 

In this garden analogy, the seeds you plant in your garden are, collectively, your conscious mind. 

Every thought you think is a seed.

So what?

A conscious thought which reappears often will eventually embed itself into your subconscious mind, where it will grow into a permanent belief. 

Depending on the thought, this can work for you or against you - and the trickiest part, is that we're often unconscious to our beliefs, and they run on a negative bias framework of 90% of our thoughts daily. 

Now, who wants a garden like that?  

Getting the picture? 

When we plant a seed in our garden, it always grows into what the seed was meant to be. 

f you plant roses, you will reap roses.

 If you plant lavender, you will reap lavender.

Just like the seeds you plant in a garden, the thoughts you think also grow into what they are meant to be. 

For example, if your thoughts are mainly about how hard it is to get fit ( or whatever your desire is), you will unconsciously foster beliefs in your mind at its deepest level to support this.

 As a result, you will walk, talk, feel and act like a person who holds this belief. 

You will develop unconscious habits and behaviors to support this belief and naturally, will get the results that perfectly reinforce these beliefs. 

That is, in this example, poor fitness levels and in the long run, health problems. 

Will this adversely impact your life? Absolutely.

In life, it has been said that “you get what you focus on, to the exclusion of everything else.” 

Your outer reality reflects your inner-thoughts and beliefs with great precision.

Only you can tend to your inner-garden; that is your mind. 

It is your responsibility to seed and fertilise your inner-garden with the plants you want to grow.

 Remember, the subconscious mind does not discriminate between thoughts. 

Our garden grows the seed that is planted whether it is desirable or not.  

And, there is a significant penalty for neglecting your inner garden: a life not of your choosing.

So how do we create our own beautiful garden?

We must be present and conscious in our lives.

THIS IS THE KEY TO UNLOCKING THE GARDEN OF THE MIND.  

Choose to be mindful and present in the seeds that you plant and in how you nurture them. 

Fleeting thoughts are like seeds blown in with the wind. 

They do not get planted, watered and nourished unless we choose to do so. 

When you choose to focus on repeated thoughts, you reinforce and reaffirm them, meaning they grow stronger and deeper roots. 

They take up more space in your garden. 

Alternatively, when you step back to observe and analyse your thoughts as they come, you can decide to keep those which serve you; and remove those that do not serve you. 

You can also encourage the growth of the plants you’d like to see more of and resolve to focus on cultivating this area going forward.

Success takes time, effort, tenacity and a great deal of focus - but it can be fun - and damnit - quite fruitful!

Successful people consciously choose to focus on where they’re heading NOW with clarity. 

They surround themselves with good seeds and flourishing flowers - and no- I'm not talking bout PANSIES! 

 

Unsuccessful people, do not. 

And, further supporting Wordsworth’s garden metaphor, Earl Nightingale once said: 

“You become what you think about most of the time.”

The human brain has 100 billion neurons, each neuron connected to 10 thousand other neurons. 

Sitting on your shoulders is the most complicated object in the known universe.

So how much do we know on how to manage our brain health?  

Today’s episode starts with a story that will help frame today’s mind blowing dialogue with the brilliant Dr Jeffrey Fannin. 

The Earth pulses at 7.83hz - just like the heart within our body.  This rhythm was determined by Dr.  Schumann and is known as the Schumann resonance.

So, how does this affect us? 

Studies in the 60’s revealed that the world's first underground bunkers shared that young healthy individuals became ill, depressed, stressed due to being deprived of the magnetic pulse of the earth. 

Polarities, nature, and the quality of our thoughts deeply intertwine with our physical reality, including our health, career, success, relationships,.    

In today’s deep dive, Dr Fannin and I will explore how we are the controllers of our reality and how the inner and outer influences consisting of our thoughts, beliefs and frequencies can be revealed and healed and how we can create a new reality on command.

Through becoming a hypnotherapist, I've been awakened to the critical importance of helping children develop their analytical mind - in the most healthy way. Free of labels, fully supported, and by thriving in a ecosystem both at home and at school.

Children are the seeds of our future and the generation that will resolve—from a greater level of consciousness—the conditions and problems the previous generations created.

That’s why the topic of children and how to raise them is incredibly important.

Our Thoughts Become Things. When it comes to mindfulness, I’m hopeful as I see different techniques like yoga and mediation being brought into the classroom. It’s amazing that as children, we’re NEVER taught to better manage our minds.

The goal is to properly encourage children to understand that their thoughts become things, and that they can begin to think and feel in more self-supporting and unlimited ways—based on how they are programmed.

I feel that the earlier the intervention, the better. For example, children between the ages of 0 – 2 produce slow brainwave patterns, which means they function in a realm of delta. These are brainwave patterns that occur in meditation or the deepest stages of sleep. This is why infants only stay awake for short periods of time.

Between the ages of 2 – 6, children’s brainwave patterns move into theta, which is a very hypnotic and suggestible state.

Due to these delta and theta brainwaves, and the fact that they have not yet developed the analytical mind, in the first six years of a child’s life they are very programmable.

Thus, because the editing function of the mind has not yet formed, information goes right into the subconscious mind.

Comments like—big boys don’t cry, little girls should be seen and not heard, you’re not very good at math, money is the root of all evil, you’re like me – you have a short temper—these are all negative suggestions that begin to subconsciously program a child.

If we can negatively influence a child at these early ages with such reinforcements, it makes sense that we can program a child in the opposite way.

Between the ages of 6 – 12, children move into alpha brainwaves, which is the imaginary realm. This stage is where children pretend, play make believe, dream of being astronauts and princesses, and so on. This is the realm of the imagination—a very important realm—because during this stage children are as creative as they are easily influenced.

A child’s analytical mind begins to form right around the ages from 6 – 8. When the analytical mind more fully forms around the age of 12, the tween’s brainwaves move into beta brainwave patterns.

In beta, our attention is predominately on the outer world. This is why it’s important to set up a healthy and supportive ecosystem for children before the analytical mind forms (because it takes very little effort to subconsciously influence them) and why training children with positive suggestions at a young age builds the foundation of who they become later in their life.

Through hypnotherapy, I’ve helped teens understand the principles of postive mind management, what values are, to teach them about their own biology, how hormones influence them, and how to create their own reality.

The Place Where Thoughts Become Things” is so critical for the overwhelmed mind of our children.

Ultimately, we want to teach people how to create their life by changing their thoughts and feelings so they can build a better future for themselves, the planet, and everyone living on it.

To do this, however, it’s paramount for us to invest in better ways for our children to think, learn, grow, and be programmed in positive ways.

As children grow, their thoughts and feelings can work for or against them, which is why proper supportive positive mind management programming at an early age is essential.

This is the important, fundamental point when it comes to helping children understand how the mind works, how negative self talk destroys their self worth, confidence and ability to grow their skill sets.

In fact, Ive heard that children of parents in this work regularly ask their parents to do the meditation before they go to bed.

Parents report that they love to do this meditation as much as their children, and that they do it together every night before bed.

That habit—children learning to meditate regularly—is a great programming habit in and of itself.

May we never take for granted the power of the mind, and resolving misunderstandings, limiting beliefs or any other blocks holding children and adults from breaking through glass ceilings.

All my love and light! Kassandra

In light of everything spinning around us, I wanted to connect with you and share how our Emotions are the fuel for our very own co-creation of our life’s experiences. 

We need emotion. Everything you dwell upon in your mind and your heart, everything that you believe in, is drawn into physical manifestation

We go through life believing that feelings just happen and that there is nothing we can do to control them.  

The relieving truth is that you have absolute control over how you want to feel, and learning how your thoughts create your feelings is a patient process. 

Without our own thought work, pushing away or pushing down feelings is the trigger response, but doing this is actually making it harder on yourself - and deepening the feedback loop. 

So today, I’m sharing my own “feelings,” how to examine it - let it ride and move back into focus.

Join me as I walk you through the difference between your thoughts and your feelings, and how to identify what a feeling is. 

After that, we’ll examine how to start the process of intentionally creating emotions that you prefer to feel, all while feeling uneasy in your body without resisting them.

While it’s a simple concept, it has some pretty profound impact:

All my love and light in this interesting time.  See how I use my words wisely? Its not negative, it’s VERY interesting. 

LOVE YA’s!

 This mini episode and bonus word detox will transform your life, if you put it to work - for your benefit.  Transform your thought life, the words you use - and see your outer world transform.  

Here's How the Words You Choose Shape Your Life

Words have power. 
Their meaning crystallizes perceptions that shape our beliefs, drive our behavior, and ultimately, create our world. Their power arises from our emotional responses when we read, speak, or hear them. Just say the word “fire” while barbecuing, or in the workplace, or in a crowded theater, and you’ll get three completely different but powerful emotional and energetic reactions.

The Illusion of Life

Quantum physics long ago determined that physical matter doesn’t really exist, that everything is just energy in different states of vibration. Nobel Prize winning physicist Werner Heisenberg once stated, “Atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities, rather than one of things or facts.” This energy vibrates at an infinite number of subtle frequencies that cause it to appear as all the different creations we see in our world. There has been a great deal of research in recent years as to whether the universe we live in is actually a holographic experience, and it seems that this is very close to the truth.

And so, it seems life is more of an energy flow than a collection of solid things. What that means for us is that if we stay conscious of the energy we contain, based on the emotions we feel, we can make deliberate choices that alter our frequency and create the realities we desire. If we’re feeling down about something, we can choose to reframe the situation and raise our own spirits. With a renewed perspective and a higher, more positive energetic vibration, we stand a much better chance of bringing good into our lives, rather than bitterly repeating old mistakes.

Words are extremely powerful tools that we can use to uplift our personal energy and improve our lives, though we’re often not conscious of the words we speak, read, and expose ourselves to. Yes, even the words of others can easily affect our personal vibration. Spend a few minutes with a chronic complainer who uses all sorts of negative terms, and you’ll feel your personal energy bottom out. Words have great power, so choose them (and your friends) wisely!

Words & Water

Japanese scientist, Masaru Emoto performed some of the most fascinating experiments on the effect that words have on energy in the 1990’s. When frozen, water that’s free from all impurities will form beautiful ice crystals that look exactly like snowflakes under a microscope. Water that’s polluted, or has additives like fluoride, will freeze without forming crystals. In his experiments, Emoto poured pure water into vials labeled with negative phrases like “I hate you” or “fear.” After 24 hours, the water was frozen, and no longer crystallized under the microscope: It yielded gray, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful lace-like crystals. In contrast, Emoto placed labels that said things like “I Love You,” or “Peace” on vials of polluted water, and after 24 hours, they produced gleaming, perfectly hexagonal crystals. Emoto’s experiments proved that energy generated by positive or negative words can actually change the physical structure of an object. The results of his experiments were detailed in a series of books beginning with The Hidden Messages in Water, where you can see the astounding before and after photos of these incredible water crystals.

The Power of Gratitude

In another experiment, Emoto tested the power of spoken words. He placed two cups of cooked white rice in two separate mason jars and fixed the lids in place, labeling one jar “Thank You” and the other, “You Fool.” The jars were left in an elementary school classroom, and the students were instructed to speak the words on the labels to the corresponding jars twice a day. After 30 days, the rice in the jar that was constantly insulted had shriveled into a black, gelatinous mass. The rice in the jar that was thanked was as white and fluffy as the day it was made. This dramatic example of the power of words is also detailed in Emoto’s books.

Throw-away Words

How many times a day do we throw our words away? We say things like, “I hate my hair,” “I’m so stupid,” “I’m such a klutz.” We never think that these words bring negative energy into our vibration and affect us on a physical level, but they do. Emoto’s experiments were conducted with water. Why? Because sound vibration travels through water four times faster than it does through open air. Consider the fact that your body is over 70% water and you’ll understand how quickly the vibration from negative words resonates in your cells. Ancient scriptures tell us that life and death are in the power of the tongue. As it turns out, that’s not a metaphor.

Say That Again

Some of us are in the habit of using the same negative words over and over again out of habit. The problem is that the more we hear, read, or speak a word or phrase, the more power it has over us. This is because the brain uses repetition to learn, searching for patterns and consistency as a way to make sense of the world around us. Only after being burned a few times can we understand that fire is always hot. You may not remember the exact end date of the Civil War, but odds are you still know what 8 x 9 is because you had to repeat your multiplication tables over and over again, drilling it into your consciousness. I’m sure you’ve experienced having a song stuck in your head all day long, and try as you might, you just can’t get the melody out of your head. Repetition is the most powerful tool to imprint something into our minds and keep it there.

This is of particular concern when we consider a phenomenon called the Illusion of Truth Effect. It basically proves that any statement we read, see, or speak regularly is seen as more valid than one we’re exposed to only occasionally.

Amazingly, it makes no difference whether the information is true or false. The only thing that matters is how often we’re exposed to it. Research from the University of California at Santa Barbara clearly shows that a weak message repeated twice becomes more valid than a strong message heard only once. Even one repetition has the power to change our minds. The same goes for pictures, which are just thoughts and ideas concentrated into an image. Repetition increases our mental validation of anything we’re exposed to, which is why it works so well in political propaganda.

If we’re not fully conscious of what we’re exposing ourselves to, consistency will trump truth every time. Now consider how many times you’ve falsely called yourself stupid, untalented, ugly, or anything else, and you begin to understand how your internal propaganda shapes a false self-image.

1. Making Words Work.

To consciously harness the power of words for your benefit, start with the ones you’re using.

2. No Name-Calling or Self-Criticism.

Everyone is doing the best they can at any moment in time with the consciousness they have to work with, including you. Be kind and offer yourself the same empathy and compassion you’d extend to anyone else.

3. Stop All Self-Deprecation.

Never make your body, or something you’ve accomplished, or anything else in your life the butt of a joke. Words have power, and quantum energy doesn’t have a sense of humor.

4. Resist Gossiping and Speaking Ill of Others.

It’s impossible for your words to resonate in anyone else’s body but your own.

5. Go on a Negativity Diet.

Instead of saying that a meal was terrible say, “I’ve had better.” You’ve basically said what you wanted to say without putting negative energy through your body—you even used a positive word to do it!

6. Boost the Positive Energy of Words.

Instead of saying something like you had a good time at a concert, ramp up the positive energy by saying great, terrific, or fantastic, instead. These feel much better and generate a bigger energetic response in the body.

7. If you have some negative nancys in your circle of friends,

limit the time you spend with them or find better friends. Negative energy has a way of dragging everything surrounding it in, like a big black hole. Avoid it when you can.

8. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting words.

Put affirmations on sticky notes around your home and office that say wonderful things about you, your family, or your goals. Wear clothes that have positive messages or phrases on them. Imagine the kind of positive energy you’ll be generating for yourself when you’re wearing positivity all day long. As you keep doing these things, you use the power of repetition in a highly effective way for your benefit. You have the power to change your world, and using words consciously is one of the quickest ways to shift the energy you bring into your life.

 

BONUS! Negative Word Detox!

This challenge holds the power to meaningfully and materially change your life.

For the next month, I want to invite you on a personal challenge and self-actualization upgrade by making the commitment to refrain from negative self-judgment and criticism.

You’ve probably done some sort of dietary fast or a cleanse in your life. I’ve done a few myself, but if I could only do one fast ever again it would be this one, hands down.

You see, whatever is happening in your relationships, finances, health, and emotions is rooted in the dominant tone of your thinking and your habits. The frequency that you share with your thoughts, underlying subconscious beliefs and what you allow into your soul make ALL the difference in what your life looks like - right now.

For the next three weeks, I invite you to walk the path of healthier thinking and self-talk.

You’ll get to choose and change your patterns so that you can create the experiences you want. Want better relationships? More appreciation? Opportunities? Would you like to just feel better inside? It all stems from your thinking and the way you treat yourself.

The process is simple, notice self-harming thoughts, release and replace them. You may say to yourself “its not easy.” But it is - it just takes focus and effort. Do NOT trick your mind by stating “it isnt easy.” That’s no-no number one. You’re totally capable!

It requires perseverance and that’s where most of us get beat ourselves up. We lose our motivation or something upsets us and we fall back into old patterns. This is why I do this challenge any time I start to feel the creep of anxiety or depression or frustration in my energetic bubble.

Even more powerful, grab your friends or family and do it as a group! This allows you to rely on each other for motivation and support. We are stronger and more powerful together.

You’ve got nothing to lose and the whole world to gain.

Let me know how it goes! All my love and light! Choose Wisely!

All of us have someplace in our life where we know, it’s time for a change. It’s my life’s passion to shift change in women’s inner and outer beauty so they can live their most beautiful life.

So let’s hit up the top 6 stages of change so you can break through the little and big changes so you can free up your mind, body, and soul and get to where you want in YOUR LIFE!

CHEERS, let’s move some CHI!

Full Show Notes:

So let’s dive in and look at what is required to overcome inertia and make big changes in your life.

Human growth and development comes at the cost of making changes through time. Yet, somewhere along the journey, many people think, “I shouldn’t have to change… I am fine just the way I am.

In fact, you should change…” And this sentiment is the first step down a slippery path to a bumpy road.

Change is growth. Changing ourselves is fundamental to our growth, spiritually, physically, mentally, and creatively. And re-writing our narrative to name change as growth can be a powerful transformation, allowing us to embrace change as part of our lives. I want to discuss 6 areas of change to break through stagnancy and inertia.

6 Stages of Change

Not every aspect of our lives needs to be changed radically at every moment, that would be exhausting. Yet, along the way, there are places where our actions cause us or others grief. And, the impact to ourselves and others outweighs our desire to keep doing the same thing.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. Albert Einstein

So, in an effort to stop the insanity, let’s take a look at the typical steps in the change process.

 

Denial

I have live a life of creation and entrepreneurship, and one of the first principles of being an entrepreneur is the awareness of problems. Inately as a entreprenuer, we love to solve problems. If you can see all the problems around you, then you will have the basis for creating solutions, it’s a core business concept. I discuss this in my course “Life in Bloom,” how developing awareness about what isn’t working in your life, is defeating us, and I suggest we focus on what IS.

It’s all between our ears, and in our inner voice. What stories do you tell yourself?

And even more important, what stories do you repeat? If you are not where you want to be in your life, then it may be time to explore if you are in denial about changes that need to happen. Confronting our own denial is the most important first step in creating any meaningful changes. As long as you deny the need for change, you will not take action, and thusly, nothing will change.

Take a moment and consider a situation in your life, where you honestly need a change. Write it down and create your desire list. Get it out of your head.

Awareness.

Once you recognize that there are aspects of your life that need change, you can begin the process of developing your awareness. What stories do you believe about what you are capable of? Where do these stories come from? Do the stories work for you? Or, are these stories limiting you? Where is the gap in the story, from where you are now, to where you want to be?

Expanding your awareness about the stories that you may be telling yourself that are not benefiting you; is key to changing the story and unlocking the garden of your mind.

There is a subtle difference between awareness and acknowledgment, but acknowledgment is important in recognizing the truth of your awareness. People can sit in the place of awareness for a long time before they are ready to move on I believe that acknowledging the importance of your awareness begins to shift us into thoughtful action.

Acknowledgment requires that we own our behaviors, our thoughts, and accept that they didn’t develop in a vacuum, but rather that they came to us as a tool and they may no longer serve with the same benefit anymore. It is impossible to let go of anything that we are either in denial of or still fighting with inside ourselves.

Desire.

You can move from denial to awareness; you can have a deep understanding and have acknowledged the issues around you. But, if you don’t actually desire the changes, or want to shift your Story, nothing will happen. Desire can move mountains, and it can literally carry us along through difficulties that otherwise we would avoid. When the desire to be different overcomes the comfort of staying the same, we start to move from thoughtful action to actual action.

And, here’s the deal, we often take on changes because we think we are supposed to. Maybe our parents or our children want us to make a change. Possibly we are in the pre-contemplative stage and are only shopping the change, but not ready to commit. Whatever place you are in the change process, without a strong desire to see the change through, any bump in the road will likely knock you off the wagon. When I think about changes, especially big changes, I scale my desire. Zero (0) to ten (10); if I am not excited, energized or determined enough to be at least an 8 or 9 in commitment or desire for change, I have to wonder if I really want what I say I want.

If you find yourself lacking desire, rethink what you say you want. Look to your life, and sit with what is important enough for you to be at least an 8. Then make that the goal.

 

Blocks, Fears, and Sticking Points.

Once we know what we need to do, and we desire to do it, often comes a phase where our fears get triggered. We will often throw up all sorts of blocks, or fears, that can derail our forward trajectory.

The human brain hates change; there is some interesting research on the amounts of glucose that the brain uses to learn new things, and technically, the brain wants to conserve as much energy as possible. Trying to avoid change is the brains’ way of conserving energy. New habits require more attention than old hardwired habits.

Then there are the normal things that we use to avoid discomfort. Like the discomfort of being outside our of comfortable box. For instance, the stories that we have told ourselves for years about what we can and can’t do, what we should or shouldn’t do, these old stories will likely raise their voices and try and shut you down. I was just having a conversation with someone today about writing their book. They are in the space of not sharing what they are up to with others because other people’s limits get dumped on them too. “You know, it’s really hard… it’s probably a waste of time…” And all these are limiting perspectives.

The antidote to our fear is Grace. Giving ourselves permission to have fears, acknowledging them, breath through them, forgiving ourselves for being human, and then pushing on.

 

Creating a new story.

To make big changes, you are going to have to create a new story. Breaking up the stories in your life doesn’t mean you have to know exactly what the end will look like. Yet you do have to design a story that resonates with you, and that shows you the horizon in the direction that you want to go.

Questions that might help you think this through might sound like, what is important to me? What am I missing in my life that I will regret if it doesn’t happen? What am I passionate about? When I am having fun and talking with friends, what topics do I get really energized by? What do I think I am good at? What did I want to be when I was a kid? Is there a dream I gave up on that, I still think about?

I go over this int eh BE DO HAVE concept on the awaken beauty podcast and in our upcoming Life in Bloom program and its powerful.

Once you have a vision or goal of how you want to show up in your life, it’s much easier to determine the actions that will take you there. I ask myself this question for every goal I have. “Is what I am about to say, think, or do, going to take me one step closer to my goal or one step farther away?” This is my compass towards the destination of the story I want to live.

 

Actions.

Once you have a vision of the new story that aligns with your big changes, then you can determine what actions need to happen. Habits of action, thinking, reacting, or responding are like superhighways in our minds. To create a new habit, we are going to have to look for tiny exit ramps and pull over and get some extra resources.

Tiny habits are based on habit links. For instance, if I have a hardwired habit of brushing my teeth, linking a new habit to the old habit can help to form the new wiring in my brain.

You might try to gamify your big change. There are apps that you have to pay a nonprofit if you dont meet your goal! Its using our natural competitiveness.

In Closing.

If you have big dreams, what got you where you are, may need adjustments or flat out changes to get you further down the road towards your goal. Use these 6 stages to support yourself in plugging away towards what you say is important to you. Draw on your courage, fortitude, perseverance, and maybe your competitiveness and craft a story that opens the path to your dreams. Dream big – work smart.

All my love and light, Kassandra!

I aim to empower women to support the innate healing capabilities of their bodies, understand what “really works” when it comes to natural beauty products and becoming more mindful and conscious so we can live feeling lighter, more energized, happier, more optimistic and more empowered!
