It began by me noticing a split front tire on my dirt bike. Both my husband and I are Reiki Masters in our 50’s and 60’s. Riding motorcycles in the dirt is fun for us and a great way to get “grounded”. It’s good exercise, too. I also consider it a good form of meditation — you must keep your mind focused on the ride or suffer the consequences. If a rider is not fully present in the moment (in the body) he or she will most likely crash and that’s not much fun! The great stage for spiritual truths is anywhere you are and that includes all your activities — especially those you don’t call “spiritual”.
The flat tire was on my special built KX-80 motorcycle with a 6 speed 175 Yamaha engine installed. My partner/husband Roi Halse is a very good mechanic and replaced the tire himself. He built us a pair of these special light weight motorcycles in his machine shop. That day we rode around the place where we live and since the ground was soft and a little muddy I did not notice any difference in the new tire. Roi asked me, “How’s the tire?” and I said, “It works great! Thank you!” I never thought of it again.
The next day we went on a longer trail riding trip off the property via other trails and some logging roads. There are thousands of acres of timber land adjoining the property where we live. You can ride for miles without seeing a house or public roads. In the area we were riding that day there were lots of rocks and hard surfaces. I noticed my wrists were hurting from the pounding of the bike on the rough road filled with large rocks, but I didn’t complain. Then my body, my buttocks, and my legs also were feeling very tired. Very unusual. I thought to myself I must be out of shape, I must practice more. I began to stand up more on the foot pegs of the bike using my legs as springs. That seemed to ease the bumps. When we got home we found 3 bolts missing and a motor mount was broken on the bike. That proved it was a rough ride! It was really weird that I didn’t complain.
It never occurred to me that my front tire had too much air. It had 35 pounds of pressure instead of the usual 7 pounds it requires. On hard surfaces that makes the bike bounce like one of those high bouncing balls. I’m a good rider and we ride fast. Roi has won many MC trophies and international medals; he’s no slow poke. Thinking back I must be an excellent rider, too, because I was able to stay on the trail with all the bouncing around I did.
Now comes the Mind Trip that drew my attention to the male myth. The scenario is: that the Man, the mechanic fixed the bike. The bike is okay. We, Women don’t question the Men. He is the master mechanic, MC expert and therefore the motorcycle must be okay. So, therefore, I must be somehow at fault. My mind acted as if “I am NOT okay“. I know I am more than Okay. I don’t know where this mind program came from. It was hiding and this ride brought it out in the open.
This incident brought back memories of when I lived in the Republic of Panama. I was in my twenties and often used the “Great Male Myth” wording to get people to do what I said. In the U. S. Army office where I was working the boss would have me supervising the local unskilled labor force because I could speak Spanish. In the Canal Zone most spoke only English, but I could speak pretty good Spanish. Being a woman and giving orders to the locals (all men, although it worked equally as well with women) I used special wording to get them to follow my orders. If I said, “The Man said to do this or to do that…..” they never questioned me. If the man said it …… it was good enough for them.
Back to my personal discovery during the motorcycle ride: There was a whole scenario of mental excuses invented by the mind to support the “male myth” and hide the real facts.
Some of these sexual programs going through my mind were:
“Women are not to complain.”
“Women must suffer in silence.”
“Because you are a woman you must try harder.”
“Women must endure”
“If things are not working properly it must somehow be your fault.”
“You must be out of condition, you need more exercise, you are really out of shape physically. Remember, Taylore, you were on the road teachig Cosmic Energetic Healing (CEH) classes for two months and didn’t get much exercise.”
When we got back home after three hours of riding, I casually mentioned to Roi that I was really tired and my bike seemed to be harder to ride. It’s usually very easy to ride because it is a special built light weight trail bike. Roi seemed to get very interested and kept asking questions.
“What was wrong with your bike?”
“Maybe my shocks are not working?” I answered.
“The front ones.”
I never ever thought it was the tire. If I had mentioned it during the ride, it would have been very simple to let a little air out of the tire.
He was getting angry at me for not telling him when I was in pain. And perturbed at me for not checking his work on the tire in the beginning. “Why didn’t you check my work? You knew I replaced your tire.”
These were good questions, but I didn’t have an answer until some time later. The next day I was driving to Chehalis (the closest town) to check the mail and get supplies — a 30 minute one way trip. While driving the car these self-sabotaging sub-programs of the mind began to reveal themselves to me. I got so excited with the revelation that I could hardly drive while I was making notes on the side of a cardboard box.
Once we can see these problems, it is fairly easy to clear them. It is like getting the name of the beast or finding out that it lives nearby. The secret is to find out that there is a problem. Then we can do something about it.
In our teachings of CEH and advanced Reiki we interface with the subconscious mind to change the mind programs. We can stop mind from repeating the same old self-limiting behavior. It is a mental scenario that in many cases has been set in motion many lifetimes ago. If it has not been healed it’s still adversely effecting the outcome of all our endeavors.
The brain could be compared to a computer. If you have a computer, companies are always giving you free promotional software programs to try. These software programs effect the computer’s total operation until they are removed from the system. Computer specialists can help you un-install the unwanted software if you haven’t learned to do it yourself. Junk software clogs up your brain/mind just like a computer.
Our brain and mind system is the same way — old or useless self-sabotaging programs effect our lives big time. There is also an on-going process where well-meaning friends and family continually feed us their free soft ware programs (their thoughts), effecting our beliefs, therefore shaping our reality. Unless these programs are ferreted out and erased they are always running in the background. With our method of healing with CEH and the correct line of questions it’s relatively easy for a trained individual to do just that. Changes often happen so fast that they seem miraculous.
Here’s the process: You question the situation. You find the problem. The problem is released from the body tissue. The supporting emotions whether mental, physical or spiritual are also released and replaced. It is re-energized with a positive affirmation installed via the special CEH energy matrix for instant corrections. Without this energy matrix regular affirmations may take weeks, months, years or even lifetimes. You re-test the issue and then you know if you have gotten rid of the problem. Then do the same for the root cause. Often the root cause is found in early programming or in a past life. While you are working with the past lives you can also clear up any other life times effected by the same problem. You must find and eliminate the root cause or the problem may return.
The myth — “that the male is always right” — was found in my 9th lifetime back. (Or we could call it around my Circle of Being in position No. 9, since all is always in the present moment.) I interfaced with my subconscious mind and found out where that unwanted “file” was located. I brought it up to the present moment in my subconscious and asked for it to be released. I released these self-sabotaging beliefs and energized the situation with the positive affirmation to replace all types of myths. “I am whole and complete.” “I rely on my inner knowingness to tell me correctly what is going on in my world.” “I am always lead by Spirit to the correct action.” “I only accept beneficial beliefs that will lead me to even more joy and freedom.” “My subconscious mind works constantly for my benefit.” With these affirmations installed with our special energy matrix I’ve finished the healing process within a few minutes instead of years.
The realization is: the flat tire was not an accident! It set the stage for an interaction with Roi, my mind, and me. It had to be dramatic enough to get my attention, to make me feel the feelings and find the hidden programs still running and controlling my life. Thank you, God! For another great experience in consciousness.
