Feeling “Overwhelmed”? Do Self-Talk!

I was recently feeling “overwhelmed”. And were it not for the Solution – the Cure – that was given to me by Dr. Lane, the Founder/Director of Cosmos Tree and My Spiritual Teacher, I might still be allowing this negativity, which affects me and others as well.

I share this Loving Solution with you now!

Here it is as Taught to me by Dr. Lane: Do Self-Talk!

As Dr. Lane Teaches in the Everyday Evolution Class, Which I recommend highly, there is a part of our consciousness called the basic selves that brings forward our karmic patterns. If I let this part do its thing – which I was doing when I was “overwhelmed” – I “run around like a chicken with my head cut off”. All of us do.

As a Conscious Being, as Dr. Lane Teaches, it is my job to direct my basics into the action I am to do! Instead of running a long list of what I have to do or allowing worry about getting it all done, I instead direct mySelf into each action.

For example, I needed to call brokers about a new apartment; sort through bags of stuff; box up items for storage; schedule a storage pickup; write a Newsletter article; make business-related calls, etc. I simply sat down and gave my basics direction, action-by-action by telling mySelf, “Basics come present! I need your cooperation and energy to call brokers now! Thank you and keep up the good work with this!”

Once I had done this specifically with each task or action, I was no longer “overwhelmed”. I Learned instantly, as Dr. Lane Teaches, that those “feelings” are not “real”!

I Learned from Dr. Lane, too, that if you’re “overwhelmed”, you need to give your basics reassurance. For instance, let’s say I’m working on an article and it takes longer than “anticipated” and I start to feel “upset” about “getting it all done”. Instead, the minute I “flinch”, as Dr. Lane has Taught me, I stop and “get in there“ with my basics like this: “Basics come present! We’re fine and safe and OK now! Everything is going beautifully thanks to your Loving support and cooperation!”

As Dr. Lane also Instructed me, all of us need to “get in there” if we’ve allowed this feeling and thank our basics, too! “Thank you so much for calling the brokers now! I am in deep Gratitude for your support and cooperation with this!”

Being Present is Key, which is the Focus into Spirit and Which is a Key Teaching brought forward by Dr. Lane. You always need to do Self-Talk to direct your basics to be Present – to focus inside yourSelf – any time you lose focus inside yourSelf. “I need your cooperation and energy to be Present now! Thank you and let’s keep up the good work with this!”

In addition to being Present, I also asked my basics to have fun, too, which worked! And I remembered and applied what Dr. Lane also Taught me: “one thing at a time!” For example, I focus on writing this blog when I’m writing this blog and on brushing my teeth when I’m brushing my teeth instead of running a whole bunch of thoughts/feelings, to-do lists, that have nothing to do with what I’m doing right then and there. Dr. Lane once told me and I applied it, too: “only think about things when you’re doing them!”

Whenever negativity comes up, do the Two-Part Release Technique to direct your basics to let it go by calling in the Light of the Most High: “For the Highest Good Lord, God, send me Your Light! Lord, God, please take any negativity from me now!” Tell yourSelf, “(your name) It’s OK to let it go!”

Avoid figuring out what the negativity is or making yourSelf “wrong”, as I’ve been well Taught; you will only crystallize it; just do Self-Talk! And be Present – to focus inside yourSelfagain using Self-Talk to direct yourSelf. Know that you are indeed Inherently OK as the Spirit you are, Which is What you are; be in “agreement” with this Truth when you do the Self-Talk. This is all part of Loving yourSelf.

Cosmos Tree, under the Direction of Dr. Lane, has many Tools to help you Focus into Spirit and to do Self-Talk. In addition to the Everyday Evolution Class, Which will be posted online at cosmostree.org when It is being offered, there is Tools For Living Free #17 titled “The Power Of Positive Self-Talk” as well as TFLF on being Present #16 and #87;  Dr. Lane’s New Book, A Baker’s Dozen: Tools For Daily Living, and Dr. Lane’s EmPowering Talk entitled; “Overhwhelmed: Who’s At The Helm? – A Participatory Satsang”, Which you can receive in a matter of seconds by going to cosmostree.org at “shop/download”. It is Talk #A238.

Are You Playing The “Numberless Game”? If Not, Start Now!

In the Video/DVD entitled “The ‘False Self vs. True Self’Game” from the Series “Understanding The Spirit You Are” by Dr. Roger B. Lane, the Founder/Director of Cosmos Tree and My Spiritual Teacher, Dr. Lane says:

“We may find ourSelves doing what I call the numberless game which is there are 99 people who do this in that way and yet my Inner Truth is I need to do the very same thing according to the Integrity of my Truth, Which is different so that the numbers don’t add up. As a matter of fact, they may be against me. …”

Let me give you an example! The holidays have just ended and, thanks to the Gift of Loving Service Given to me by Dr. Lane, I spent much of it hosting/attending every Offering at the Cosmos Tree Center: Meditations and/or Sunday Programs on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Christmas Eve, New Year’s, New Year’s Eve.

When I first started hosting on holidays, I was afraid to tell my family that I wouldn’t be joining them for Thanksgiving. What would they think? Say? Even “do”? As Dr. Lane has pointed out, I was attached to the opinions of others, in this case, millions of others in the form of the societal “norm” that holiday equals in-person family time, no matter my preference otherwise.   

I hosted two Meditations on Thanksgiving so I essentially spent the day at the Cosmos Tree Center; this year, this single day of Growth And Upliftment was one of the best days of my life. I was in Joy! I was In Celebration! What a Gift! All I did was show up! And commit and recommit as needed to being There!

That first year that I spent Thanksgiving at the Center, I Learned how to work this numberless” situation – and others – Spiritually. Here’s how: call in the Light Of The Most High inside yourSelf: “For the Highest Good Lord, God, send me Your Light!’ For the Highest Good Lord, God, please [fill in what you want; for instance, to be at the Center and also for everything with my family to work out easily and effortlessly, etc.] That first year, my favorite family members “just happened” to be in my neighborhood the next day and we got together!

You can also direct your basic selves – the part of you that brings forward your karmic patterns and that loves to “belong” or, as Dr. Lane has said, to play “the numbers game” – like this: “Basics, come present! I need your cooperation and energy to [direct them into the action you prefer; for instance, host/attend Meditation at the Center on Thanksgiving and be in Joy and Peace as we do This!] Thank you and let’s keep up the great work doing This!”

You can also use the Two-Part Release Technique by calling in the Light Of The Most High as noted above; then say, “For the Highest Good Lord, God, please take any fear from me!” and tell yourSelf, “(your name) it’s OK to let it go!”

Most importantly, as Dr. Lane Teaches in the Video/DVD, there is only one “… Number that really counts – the Integer, the One, the Spirit that we are – That’s What counts and That is What I Honor and Walk with when I stay in My Integrity.”

Please use one of the many Tools For Living Free, a double-sided educational publication, made available at cosmostree.org under “Resources”. Start with #16 titled “Being Present In The Moment”; read it and do the exercises often! Please note, too, that while this Tool will help you Lift and Grow and is therefore very important in your Spiritual Growth, to be Truly Present with Spirit/The Integer/In Integrity, you need to request and be Given Initiation Into The Sound Current, a Precious Gift Given by My Teacher/the Lord, God. Through Initiation, you have direct access to the Spirit you are/The Lord, God. For more information, please feel free to visit spiritcentral.org at Initiation.

As the holiday season winds down, I notice that a lot of people I know are sick with severe colds. As Dr. Lane Teaches, colds come from “being cold to yourSelf.”

How to Stay Neutral In Stressful Situations

I think most would agree my life right now seems “stressful”. I’m eight months pregnant with my fourth child; just sold and packed up my house; and moved my family into my parents’ home while we wait to close on the new home we purchased. Did I mention that my brother and his family of four are also living with my parents while he waits to close on his new home? That’s 6 adults, 5 toddlers, a dog and baby on the way… It’s been hectic to say the least!

I’d like to share a few tips on how I use the Tools available through Cosmos Tree to remain Neutral through this situation. Tools that you too can use to find Neutrality in your life:

Choose Love Not War: Loving YourSelf and Others

Have you ever had the experience of “battling” with a loved one? Recently, I had been battling with my four-year old son. In the past month we moved into a new house and welcomed a second son into the family. I’m certain my four-year old’s behavior was due to all the change that had occurred in our family. To be honest, I was feeling some growing and adjusting pains, too. Even though I intellectually knew that my son was having a hard time adjusting and his unpleasant and even violent behavior was a result of this, when he started to push my buttons my response was to push back. We battled like this for about three weeks until finally I found a solution. It was, of course, Love.

The True Role Of A Parent

In the Fall of 2008, I began participating in Cosmos Tree Meditations and studying with Founder and Director, Dr. Roger B. Lane. At the time, I was married but did not have any children. I had no idea how much I did not know about mySelf or about being a parent. Before having children, I was certain that my own experience with my parents and the babysitting jobs I held throughout my life were preparation enough to raise my own. Blessedly for me, by the time I did have children I had a foundation of The Teachings that inform Cosmos Tree, Which every day assist me in being the best parent I can be by Teaching me how to be the Spirit that I am.

Are You Busy Making ‘Nice, Nice’? Learn What ‘Nice’ Really Is.

Many, if not most of us, are unconscious when we speak to others. One of these “unconscious” forms of communication is making “nice, nice”. For example, a friend of mine recently asked me to do her a favor and instead of simply asking me directly, she chose to flatter me over and over again before finally, finally asking for the favor. I knew it was a manipulation. It’s a lot like the example of a husband who tells his wife how much he loves her cooking, which can be a Loving and Clear communication, but it can also be a manipulation so that his wife continues to cook for him and to cook for him and to cook for him some more.

How To Make A “Difficult” Choice: Choosing With Spirit

Recently, I was faced with a “difficult” choice. I learned through using the Tools available to me from Cosmos Tree and its Founder, Dr. Roger B. Lane, that I exercise my power by choosing. Really, we all have power. I’d like to share why the choice seemed “difficult” and what it meant for me to take control of the situation and be in my power.

Are You Giving Yourself The Life You Want? A mini-guide.

“GIVE YOURSELF THE LIFE YOU WANT!!!” is printed in big boldface type on the cover of the latest Cosmos Tree brochure. The new Cosmos Tree website, on its Home page, says “LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT!”

As the brochure states, Cosmos Tree “offers Tools you can use – “CDs; MP3s; DVDs; Talks; Open Hours; Classes; Workshops; and Publications … to assist you in transforming your innate potential into concrete reality.

So where to begin?

Need to change a Habit or Habits 1-2-3? Work It Spiritually!

At Cosmos Tree, “learning to change behavior patterns that no longer work for you” is at the core of Its most popular Class. Called Everyday Evolution, the Class is taught by Cosmos Tree Founder/Director Dr. Lane. Dr. Lane has also stated that when individuals come to Dr. Lane for help in their lives, which is often, the remedy frequently comes down to a simple behavioral change.

Here’s a 9-step program to help you do that:

How Do I Let Go Of Stress? … Follow These Instructions!

Before answering the question, how do I let go of stress? let’s answer the question, what is stress? Dr. Lane, the Founder/Director of Cosmos Tree, has often explained that stress is negativity that is “outside of us” that we have chosen to take “inside” of us. So stress is a choice.
