Shazam or Suffering Succotash: you decide
“Happiness is where you start from rather than where you go. God, I sound like Yoda.”—Simon Pegg
In E-Cubed I talk about the power of words, how we literally foretell and create the future by what we say. When we talk smack about our lives, even little things like, “Oh, I wish I’d gotten up earlier and wasn’t running so late” or “Ah shucks, I just spilled coffee on my tie,” we create an energetic resonant field of problems.
But since I believe we should take our attention off problems and animate a different possibility, I’d like to tell you about two words I have just added to my vocabulary.
The first is “Shazam!” I’d heard this word before. Captain Marvel uses it to transform into his superself. But I just had breakfast with the awesome Jessica Ortner (from the Tapping Solution—check out her new book on tapping for weight loss here) and she told me that she and her friends always “Shazam” each other as a way of sending positive energy.
For example, Anita Moorjani (who was at breakfast with us—Am I a lucky camper or what?) is finding out today whether or not her extraordinary person visa for the U.S. will come through. Jessica sent some Shazam her way!
The other word I learned is brand new, or was when Phil Parker made it up. He’s a brilliant London osteopath who is able to transform we humans’ “issues” seemingly overnight. He uses something he calls “the lightning process.”
And it starts with the word du with a ^ over the “u.” Instead of saying “I am exhausted” or “I am poor” or “I am…. (whatever you don’t want to be), he suggests saying, “I am du^ing exhaustion” or “I am du^ing poor” which makes it a temporary state. It reduces the energetic charge.
The reason he chose not to use the already familiar word “do” is because it smells like blame. Last thing any of us want to do is point fingers at ourselves. Guilt and its accompanying comrades are what started the “issues” in the first place.
Remember–whatever is happening now is only temporary unless you continue to harp about it.
Two tiny words—huge possible change.
