Television Mind Control: Free Your Divine Mind

20121011-095356.jpg

It was before Dougie was born, that Gina and I decided to get rid of the television in our house. It was only because we decided that we were more interesting to each other than the news . With all the travel that we have done over the last couple of years though, we have been around a lot more television then we would normally.

At first it was easy not to turn the tubes on in our hotels, but soon we thought that it would be nice for Dougie to have something fun to watch on the Disney channel while we did our work. That turned into him wanting TV even more. It was concerning to hear him reciting commercials for chemical laden products, like Raid or McDonald’s, but like most parents caught up with lots of work we succumbed to his cravings for media.

I didn’t think too much of it at first, but then he started trying to school me on how good Monsanto’s products were. That’s when I started taking note of this situation a lot more carefully. He could watch 30 minutes of mathematics with a commercial for a medication in the middle of it, and afterwords the only thing that he would talk about would be the medication.

The TV was brainwashing my son. He would talk about the need to use pesticides and how he wanted cologne. These are things that my son has no need for. This is what he retains. Why? How is it that the commercials are what are sticking with my son? More over than just Dougie, I see these products in so many people’s houses. I hear people talk about them in passing and see them use them in front of me. It is EXTREMELY rare when I see a commercial for something that isn’t toxic and people are interested.

People can look at a topic like this and say that we aren’t being forced into buying and using these products, but I believe that those people are just so caught up in the advertisers demands that they can’t see their own reason. If a stranger walked up to you on the street and said “this pill could kill you, but you might feel great for a few minutes,” you would probably run the other direction. If they did it on your television then you might pick up the phone and order it. Sound extreme? It isn’t. In fact it happens every day.

How did we lose our divinity as a society? How did we fall so far as to think that it is normal to rub toxic chemicals on our body and ingest poisons that could lead to IBS, dementia, death etc.? Why would you be willing to pay for that type of torture? If you don’t see the psychological warfare that is being played out in your living room, please take one night out of the week where you search only independent media online. Just learn something new from someone who isn’t trying to sell you something.

You could even initiate game night. I would take scrabble over gang shootings on the news any night. Expand your minds instead of flattening your brain waves. There is so much interesting and informative news going on outside your mind control box that would at a bare minimum make you into a smarter conversationalist at holiday parties. Don’t just learn what the news is force feeding you. Learn for yourself on your own terms. Free your mind.

Of course, we are talking about more blatant mind control here. But there are known agendas for controlling us on much deeper levels. Disney has used intentional manipulation since its inception to get people to do everything from pay taxes to conform to self-depreciating values.  All to give us a warped perception of reality steal the essence of our true power to change things.

No More “Guilty” Pleasures, I’ll Take Plain and Simple Regular Pleasure

The other night a friend and I laughed at how I knew all the words to some obscure Air Supply song. I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for those tunes my younger bro and I sang  in front of the TV while watching “Solid Gold.” Up until 2 days ago, anything 1980’s or chocolate, or crocheted,  or anything resembling a cupcake were all guilty pleasures. Not anymore. The guilt is gone and I’m jammin with my Trader Joe’s gluten-free vegan ginger snaps– that I am eating sans guilt despite the sugar.

A lot of guilt goes into and comes out of changing to the “healthier” side of things, you know what I mean? But, the worst I’ve created for myself comes from what I decide I want to eat. Once  you dive into learning what goes into our food — from the ingredients to the energy, processing, and scams behind who is making money by poisoning us with chemicals, gmos, and godknowswhat, your higher self doesn’t want to go back. Healthy food makes you feel food. It tastes good. And us smart and savvy peeps have found ways to even make it cost less, prevent and heal illness and give us enough energy to stay feeling young for long.

Coming to Chicago to visit family and  make our first Bliss Tour stop has taught me that I’ve had to let go of a little bit of my  “healthy” eating. That is because ultimately, I have to eat. I have these ideas of what I am supposed to eat, what I want, what I need, what I crave and all of that. But, my experiences here have taught me just how hard it can be for the average person to make these healthy choices. Whole Foods Market is more full of processed and sugary foods, than it is of “whole foods.”  The Farmer’s Markets cost 3x as much as the one in Santa Monica, and the discount organic market has older produce that is ready for the trash.  Believe me, you can find good, organic and healthy options here. I know it. I used to live here. But, living in California spoiled with variety, convenience and price. I never had to shop at Whole Foods in California. We bought everything at the farmer’s markets.

I initially felt guilty for making choices to buy fruit and veggies that I knew were sprayed with chemicals. Our family has gotten  sick for the first time in years. We were exposed to mold. And, I originally blamed that on my poor meal planning and poor shopping decisions.

But, I think the guilt hurts more than the pesticides.  It’s proven  that not only are emotions connected to our physical health, but that our heart vibration is the strongest vibration  we emit. If our hearts are heavy with guilt, that has the potential to harm us even more than what we eat. 

Pleasure, on the other hand… pleasure has the power to raise your heart vibration and actually bring physical healing into your body. So, what if I eat my chemical-laden grapes with the utmost gratitude and pleasure? What if I just enjoy them today because they are what I have? What if I give gratitude for the experience that helped me better understand how  most people have to struggle to get healthy food? It’s gotta work.

So, that’s what I am doing now. It’s important to me  to eat the best I can because it does make me feel my best. But, if I live rigid-style how am I going to help anyone? Diets stink.  I’m glad I discovered my guilt because I realized I was living in a diet mentality. When  you are on a diet you have “forbidden’ foods. This is never going to work in reality.

Guilt is one of those complimentary emotions granted to the good-hearted, bleeding hearts. Believe it or not, it’s one of the hardest emotions to get a handle on. It took me forever to realize how selfish it is to be guilty. How that emotion strips us away from ourselves because it often involves pleasing others. The only real remedy for this is joy — doing whatever truly makes the real you happy.

 

The next time you feel a tinge of guilt coming from your mama, your spouse or your inner critic, try smacking that experience in the face with some pure happiness. Stop what you are doing. Stop right in the middle of doing it and focus your attention on the happy part of it.  Be thankful that you have that experience.

It may be natural to feel guilty. But, that doesn’t mean it always has to be so. You can change your story. You can find the Bliss in any moment. I’m erasing guilty feelings all day long with a simple thought, and sometimes a bite of cookie.

Rock on!
