Where There Is Smoke — There is Fire!

It is very easy to see smoke rising and think that the smoke is the problem. It should not be hard to realize that smoke is simply the product of fire, or something hot enough to start creating fire.

Why not send in the firefighters to knock down the fire instead? This idea seems very easy to understand, however, trying to remove the smoke, or symptoms of human problems is the norm today. It seems that very few treatments, or practices, focus on the root cause of the manifestation that has presented itself.

Many of the issues that a human can suffer from are a result of coping mechanisms from unfavorable events in our lives. These events don’t even have to be enormous if a person perceives them to be unfavorable. Everything that happens to us, both good and bad, becomes etched in our subconscious and becomes part of our programming. Our conscious is only capable of processing less than 1% of our reality, and the lot goes directly to the subconscious. Now subconscious programming is great when we etch it with talents such as learning to talk, write, drive, or walk; however, all the negative things and energy that surround our life also get embedded and continue to create a reality that plays over and over. The subconscious is also very concerned with our safety and will manifest many issues in our lives that help to protect us from further harm. I do see this trend quite frequently through hypnosis and counseling sessions — the body is amazing at trying its best to protect us from things that have proved to be harmful to us in the past.

I had a dream the other night where I was presented with a term that I was not familiar with — “Reverse Alchemy”. I began a search for what this might mean and discovered an awesome article about this actual topic (referenced listed below). The premise of the article was to demonstrate that traumatic things that happened to people in the past tend to create chronic diseases, obesity, and drug/alcohol usage. Basically, the Author states that a human being is born perfect, like gold, but unfavorable events tend to create mental and physical issues. Alchemy in its basic sense was originally defined as a process of trying to create gold out of more ordinary…
