Vol. 396, January 12, 2016 – Choices & Illusions: A Book by Eldon Taylor
I was asked to review this very important book by Eldon Taylor on the release of the audio version, and was happy to do so. It is a very special book that brings the concepts of how our mind works and spirituality together through many studies and wonderful stories.
He tells a story of how an eagle is raised by chickens, never learning how to soar like an eagle. When one is living in a certain environment, the members of that society teach us what is expected. This is really a metaphor for how we constrain ourselves by never doing those things we could do, if we would only break out of the proverbial box and go for it.
In order to change and become who we truly are, it is necessary to let go of those who hold different beliefs then us. This is especially true in regard to the naysayers out there in the world.
It is a matter of “knowing thyself.”
Bringing in the idea that is taught in all the spiritual teachings around the globe, love is at their core. He reminds us that whether it was Buddha or Christ consciousness, the God within allows anyone to manifest miracles. Going back to Moses when God answered the question of who he was by saying “I am that I am.” This was a way of stating that the Kingdom of Heaven is within.
I particularly like the concept Taylor teaches of “Forgiving and forgetting.” When you forgive, who are you giving to but yourself? Forgetting is to be read as two words, ‘for getting’, meaning that you are getting your freedom. This is a something I teach to my clients, especially those who have gone through terrible traumas. It is amazing how true forgiveness does indeed set us free.
The point of the book is that we create what we desire based on a healthy self-esteem. Self-esteem coming from that which we give, not what we take. What are we giving? Unconditional love. It is through this giving that we are able to bring in opportunities beyond our selfish desires.
Taylor believes It is important for us to understand that we are all connected in ways that are not fully understood. When we think of the paranormal events that some people experience, we understand that we are more then just the physical self. We understand that connection Jung called the “collective unconscious.” Others call that “God,” or the “Creator” – that energy that brings us all together. Because of this fact, it is all the more important for us to be of service and to give unconditional love. The definition of unconditional love is that it is given without regard for an outcome, without any expectation, without attachment.
Meditation is the way we are to bring in the awareness of how we can heal ourselves, through our ability to listen to God. This is the way to spirituality.
One other important note here: patients who believe that they can heal themselves are much more likely to heal then patients who don’t believe it. Patients who are happier tend to heal faster. So, if you are ill, open yourself up to using your mind to heal yourself.
For many years I suffered with what is known as Bi-polar 2. I knew that there had to be a way to overcome it regardless of what the psychiatrist had to say about it. And you know what? I did. I found a method of doing so through the use of my own mind. I was also able to rid myself of bronchial asthma using my mind. In that case I needed to be rid of it to stop my clients from being concerned about me. All that coughing was intrusive and scary. And lastly, I got rid of a brain tumor, through visualization. It happened over the course of two years, proven with an MRI. So, I am proof that regardless of what some of the white coated people have to say, with the attitude of believing that you can overcome your illness, you certainly can. So, long as you allow your subconscious and super conscious to do the work involved. I used hypnosis and NLP to get the job done. Julie Griffin, the first hypnotist who I studied under, said that hypnosis is meditation with a purpose. So, of course Mr. Taylor is speaking my truth.
In his case he has “InnerTalk” programs to help his patients and customers to let go of whatever is ailing them. There are many studies he sites proving his technology works. However, I can also tell you that you can do this on your own, should you wish to do so. You just have to be willing to put yourself into a meditative type state, and visualize the healing occurring. Know in your soul that you can overcome whatever ails you. Or you may find a person to help you to do it, as I did in two of my three health issues. And, with that effort, you may very well find that you no longer have your old illness.
If you have something more difficult to overcome, a professional who understands the workings of the unconscious mind would stand you in good stead. It could cut the time necessary to receive your results, especially for those illnesses that are triggered more directly by stress and your emotions.
I have to say that I truly enjoyed this book, the story telling was excellent and the teachings helpful to creating a happier healthier life.
