The power of the universe will come up underneath you as you turn your attention in this new direction.
So Let's Start with Miracles!
"The miracle is the option. There is indulgence, there is repression, and then there is the miracle. What is a miracle? A miracle is simply a shift in perception from a fear-based assumption or belief to a love-based reality. The indulgence and repression of fear-based behavior does not go anywhere; it stays caught in a loop of frustration and fear, but the miracle dissolves this and takes you in a new direction. We get in touch with our Source." ~David Hoffmeister
The essential step is to change your thinking, not to focus on behavior and form. Isn’t that fresh?! Behavior flows from thought, and transformation of the mind is synonymous with changing thought patterns from ego-based fear to Spirit-based Love.
The core of alcoholism, anorexia, bulimia, smoking, and a host of things the world calls addictions, is control. Turning something over to an invisible power—call it the quantum field, your higher Self, or God—is a leap of faith that helps you to let go of attempting to control outcomes. As you can imagine, not trying to control the behavior leads to a very different focus!
Let the Spirit Do It!
This little willingness the Spirit asks is the key to letting go of the attempt to manage the body and the world. This is really an insane attempt to maintain a self-concept/self-image that is hellbent on control so it can feel safe. A Course in Miracles states this plainly:
“Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world."
This video will take you through the levels of mind so you can trace it all the way in and see what is driving you. It’s essential to see what you really want and get honest about it.
Levels of Mind
As long as you believe that you are not quite good enough, that is what the world will reflect back to you. The good news is that by questioning these very thoughts and beliefs you have about yourself, you can release all need for external validation. This is freedom!
Craving Sex and Food
We use movies to open the mind and to see what thoughts are believed in—which one’s trigger your emotions—so they can be looked at and consciously released from a fixed position. Doing this brings the mind into a more peaceful state. Watching movies with the intention for healing is a safe way to release pain and fear from your mind.

This is a stream of consciousness movie in which a group of women, spanning the ages of early twenties to sixties, attend a birthday party. A French documentary filmmaker attends the party and becomes fascinated when none of the guests will touch the birthday cake. She begins interviewing the party-goers and they open up, revealing many hidden thoughts and beliefs, a main theme being a special relationship with food. This is a great mind watcher or flusher of a movie.
