Hello again, good folks! It’s been a hot summer here in lovely and magnificent Pensacola, so I gave the staff at A Clean Mind the month off. We have exciting things on the horizon, though, including a rather interesting award that I’ve won. It’s still a secret, though, so I’ll let you know as soon as it’s been made public. It’s a testament to how powerful this work is, though, as well as a testament to how the world is changing and we’re starting to wake up to the fact that we’re much bigger and more powerful than most of us have thought. Which brings me to the introduction of the third phase of the evolution of this “work,” A Clean Mind 3.0! It’s still coming into focus, but I thought it would be fun to go ahead and talk about it.
When I started this gig over five years ago, I already knew that feelings would move if we would get out of the way and let them. And I knew that we could think calmly about things, too. We didn’t have to freak out and worry and think really fast all the time. We didn’t have to criticize ourselves so much, either. Then I started working at Gulf Breeze Recovery and learned about the Three Principles, and this began the second phase. In many ways it put words to what I had already been discovering, but it deepened things as well. I learned that our feelings came from our thinking, or how we see things, and I owned them as being self-created. And without judgment, too; just a fact. So it’s all an inside job – that’s how powerful we are as creators. And we have a good source of thinking built-in, whether you call it inner wisdom or plain old common sense. Listen to that more and more rather than the chatterbox, and the feelings will take care of themselves.
I was really still coming from a place of smallness, though, from the place of being a body, a meat suit, an ego, a separate self, or whatever you want to call it. I had a strong idea in my head that we were something much bigger than that, that we were actually whatever power it is that animates the body. Because there happens to be a whole slew of near death experiences and out of body experiences that are very compelling for a logical math major like me! There are tons of these accounts, and the most likely explanation in my mind, after surveying enough of them, is that we really are this amazing soul or consciousness or whatever the hell you want to call it. Words are just words, by the way, doing their best to point us to some meaning, so we don’t get too hung up on them.
Anyway, this third shift has really been about finally owning it. For real. Owning that yep, what those people experience in the out of body state, in all its glory, magnificence, power, innocence, and unlimitedness – well, that simply must be true for me, too. Otherwise it would not make any sense at all. The essence of each and every human, beyond the temporary body, simply has to be equal. Inequality just would not make sense. And so I’ve been owning that, breathing it in, letting it sink in. Undoing layers and layers of belief in smallness and guilt. And I’m not trying to understand with my head at all. Been there, done that! And then some…
So I’ve been owning that I’m not what I thought I was, and what I am is clearly WAY better. The other thing that makes it all click is the idea behind the book that I love so much, The Surrender Experiment. It is the fact (yes, fact – it takes a while to really get this! And I feel like I’m just getting started, by the way) that there’s an intelligence behind everything that is good and loving. And it wants us to thrive and be happy. So we keep getting out of the way, letting this intelligence be in charge. And things start to shift and click. And we start to see that wow, I think there’s really something to this, I think this really is how things work. So cool…
It also hit me a couple of months ago how deeply unworthy most of us feel. Unworthy of good stuff like an awesome life, whatever that means for us. So I’ve been breathing in worthiness, letting it sink in, deep in the body. Because if I’m really owning that I’m a magnificent, unlimited soul, then worthiness comes with the package. It has nothing to do with the “Ashley” that I’ve been thinking was me, and it most certainly doesn’t have to be earned. It only has to do with my true identity, which is the power that temporarily animates Ashley. Again, a major upgrade! So I’ve been spending some time owning my worthiness by closing my eyes and breathing it in. Just letting it sink in. I really will do video someday so you can see how simple this is (in the meantime, come see me (or Skype) if you’re curious). But it sure feels like some blocks are being removed. And I get the HUGE gift of seeing what happens in the lives of my clients as they start to live this way. Owning that they really are unlimited and that there’s a flow that wants them to be at peace.
Folks, this stuff works! I’m seeing the coolest shifts in my clients, as well as in me. And I know this is all new and it keeps unfolding, so of course I’ll be sharing the journey as that continues to happen. It is simply a deeper understanding of what the deal is, that’s all. A deeper understanding of what we really are. And that there’s something good in charge that lives inside of us and flows through us that can handle the details of our lives much better than we can. So there we go, A Clean Mind 3.0. It’s early, and it’s a bit clunky, but let’s just put it out there. Why wait? It’ll evolve faster that way anyway, I think. This is the art and science getting out of the damn way and knowing that at the end of the day, it’s all good. And I know that might sound crazy! Especially if you read the news, ha. It can take some time, but when you get a taste of it, you’re hooked. And my understanding is that it just deepens from there, never ending. And your life will never be the same. Thanks for being a part of my journey, and as always let me know if I can help 🙂
P.S. Let’s start a revolution, people, because it’s time for us all to wake up! Life is much more awesome that way. If anyone you know could use this understanding, then please send this to them or send them to me! I want more! It’s an honor to connect with people in this way. It’s just too fun, and it helps me hone my ability to communicate this as well. And it all just keeps spreading and spreading, too. And after a while, this “crazy train” Earth place will be totally transformed. But it doesn’t start with saving the environment or stopping wars or how you vote or any of that. It starts with you, and what you think you really are, now. And what you think is really in charge, now. Good stuff, and as always, let me know if I can help 🙂
