Are You Self-commitment Phobic?
Reading books, attending development courses, or getting psychic readings will only work if our brain is flexible enough to accept and understand new concepts and truths about ourselves. We need the ability to learn, or to allow ourselves to acquire new perspectives from our experiences, whether good and bad, and it is this that helps us evolve. The continuous process of evolution and adapting to change, dictates our blueprint for change, or our spiritual evolution.
The brain’s natural capability and plasticity allows us to adapt and making change happen- in a split second. The way we react emotionally to change develops our understanding. With understanding comes wisdom. With wisdom, consciousness evolves. As we evolve, we become more in command, though not in control, of our lives.
The truth is any treatment or therapy can work, at least once; but in order to establish a new pattern in our lives for good or for a longer period, repetition is important; in other words commitment. This commitment enables any new change or pattern to become well engrained in our own energy field. Our old patterns took a long time to become established in our mind-body fabric, so sometimes the reason why an old pattern, or an emotional block, is so difficult to shift is simply because we do not keep up the effort long enough to change it and make that shift happen.
Kathy Cooper, an Australian astrologer, (see www.uraniannights.com) says:
“Character determines destiny"
If you are a lazy person and your chart shows that there is a favourable transit operating that could bring rewards if the opportunities are grasped at that very point in time and you choose to sit around doing nothing, then there is little chance that the rewards that are promised will ever eventuate.. A chart may show an abundance of opportunities but if the person does not make the effort to utilise and recognise them, then it will come to nothing.”
As you start changing patterns, it impacts the ego or the lower self, and you begin to feel much better about yourself; your self-esteem rises knowing “I can make change happen.”
Self-commitment and self-esteem are directly related. Another way of raising your self-esteem is to expand your awareness by allowing yourself to learn new hobbies, or by starting new activities which expand your self-awareness zone. If you are committed to your self-growth, you are guaranteed healthy self-esteem. This is because your brain can now literally grow new ‘neural paths’. As you commit to keeping that up; your brain establishes these new neural connections permanently, and old ones die away.
