Week 22: Mind Matter

Throughout the course of my childhood I recall always being advised by my mother that “life’s success” was 99% ‘mind over matter’.  

Curiously, there was never any mention – nor did I ever  give any thought to the absence of (or, whereabouts)  of the elusive 1%.  Instead, I remember thinking, at the time, how silly the saying, for (I reasoned), if I chose to not study it would reflect  poorly upon my test results ie  if I relied solely on my belief of attainment of success (mind over matter), without studying, that I would be moderately delusional to expect a favourable grade!

Whilst on the right track in terms of understanding how powerful our mind can be –  for my mother there was a high state of subconscious ‘lack’ attached to much in the path of this mantra, or mindset, in that she subconsciously believed that ‘life’ should pose many unnecessary struggles.

Let me just say, some 30 (plus) years down the track l, as a result of this masterkey experience : that, right there, is a doozy!

I understand, now,  my mother was trying to instill various forms of strength and stickability into our ‘mindset survival armour’ but she did so with loaded-limiting belief and subconscious negativity.. and this was not her fault, but, due merely to the fact that she was essentially her own cement buddha : through her own choices, decisions and circumstances influenced by others … and I get it … it was her journey!

I feel no judgment, no pain, no regret (noooo emotion) attached to the recognition and true understanding of this.

I also feel immense gratitude for I recognise and appreciate how much that same mantra, absorbed by me in an entirely different perspective, has anchored my mental strength and personal determination to being resilient – to never giving up – to always looking for the silver linkng in the cloud, from always recharting myself to my inner compass.

One big week of ahaaaaaaah epiphanies this week, dear reader – mahalo xx

  1. I look back too and see where my mother was teaching me some of these same principals without knowing she did. I was lucky in that my mother was a very positive happy person. She just did not the applicable ways to put some of those principles into action except for saying it a lot by repetition. Great post.

  2. Your post made me think of my mom. Great Post!
    My dear mother was a master at no opinions and no judgement.. God bless her, she should have been a guide..
    She just listened to me and gave no advice, just let me make my own decisions…
    Only once, when I was pregnant at 17, she suggested I get married…I replied it was not a reason to get married, then I said to her , I would get married, and if it didn’t work out I will get divorced…. That was not the thing back 47 years ago… Particularly for us good Catholics.
    When I think of that now, she must have bit her tongue a lot…
    She was so calm…. I might have been addopted….lol
    Love you Mom❤️… xo
