How to Master Change

You are in Charge of Change. 

     Why is it that sometimes in life when everything is going perfect, you come to a screeching halt, and suddenly your life spirals out of control? Life has a way of throwing curveballs at you when you are swinging away. I do not know of a single person, successful or not, that hasn’t had misfortune in their lives. The most successful people accept the setback and then plan a comeback. While everyone else sits on the sidelines complaining and wishing. Complaints and wishes will not make you happy. There is really no benefit to being in a negative frame of mind. 

     Life will always have its ups and downs, and that’s what this post is about. Your life is like the ocean’s tide. Always changing, always coming in and then going out. Or like the moon, one day its full and bright a few days later its pitch black. You have no control over change and you cannot hide from it either. Change will find you wherever you go. It is inevitable and the only solution is to face it head on. 

     Knowing that you can’t hide from change, the only solution left for us is to embrace it. Face it head on with fearless determination. Accepting that you will never simply remain the same you can learn to make change work for you. 

     You might be saying that you can’t always control changes that are forced on you. You are absolutely right. However, you can control everything you feel, and how you react to the change. In the next paragraphs I hope to explain how you can rise above negative changes in your life. Giving you the opportunity to create happiness with every shift the universe gives you. 

     There are seven laws that dictate how our universe works. These laws govern everything in the universe. The first three of the laws are immutable, meaning they can not be changed or adjusted in any way. The other four laws are mutable, meaning that they can be adjusted, or transcended to improve your life. You can make these four laws work for you, not against you. We will cover two of the seven laws in this article, the fourth and fifth. The fifth law is:

     The Law of Rhythm (Mutable): 

The fifth of the seven Universal Laws tells us that “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.” (mindyourreality.com) 

     It is the second of the mutable, or transcendable universal laws, and means that your life pendulum swings in everything. This principle can be seen in operation in the waves of the ocean, in the rise and fall of the greatest empires, in business cycles, in the swaying of your thoughts from being positive to negative and in your personal successes and failures. When your pendulum reaches the far end point, then the backward swing begins almost unnoticeably, until such time that any forward movement has been totally reversed, then the forward movement begins again and the process is repeated. 

     Being a “mutable law” means that you can control aspects of the rule. You can make it work for you, not against you. You can rise above the swing, while waiting for the forward motion to return. 

The Law of Polarity (Mutable ) 

    The fourth law states that everything has an opposite. Happy – sad, good – bad, hot – cold, etc. The Law of Rhythm states that everything has its tides. Everything is constantly flowing in and out of change. You have probably heard the saying “What comes around goes around.” Well it does, it has to, it is a law of the universe. 

     Imagine a pendulum swinging back and forth. This is your life swinging from one event to the next. To illustrate how this works I want you to imagine a pendulum swinging. On one side of the pendulum arc label good, and on the other side label bad. Now your life pendulum is swinging from good to bad, and then back to good again. This is how your life has been designed by the Creator, the Source, the Universe, God, or whatever you want to call our maker. Change is programmed into the universe. It is a law of nature and it never stops.

     Once again on the one end of the swinging motion is what we’ll call good. For instance walking on the beach is good. On the other end of the arc is bad, let’s say that kicking a rock, “ouch” is bad. Now draw a straight line under the route that the pendulum is swinging over. Label one side good, the other side bad (remember everything has an opposite. It’s a law of the universe.) On the line you just drew, draw an intersecting line at the point where good turns to bad. 

     Now I want you to think of the one thing that is at the intersecting line that makes it change from good to bad. For example: You are walking on the beach (good) suddenly you kick a rock (bad), OUCH! (this is where the good changes to bad) the pendulum continues to swing to the bad side, where you fall down and get sand in your eyes. You are now at the farthest bad side of the line, or opposite side of the pendulum swinging motion.    

     Suddenly and without warning, the pendulum begins to slowly swing back to the good side (it’s a law, life must swing back). As the pendulum of your life begins to swing back to good, a breeze blows and the sand is blown out of your eyes. Now because you can see again, and because you fell down after kicking the rock and having excruciating pain, you just happened to find an old Spanish gold coin worth a thousand dollars. Your pendulum just swung from good to great. 

     We are constantly going from what we perceive as good, to what we perceive as bad, and then from bad to good. Your pendulum of life is always swinging back and forth, it never stops moving, change is always present.   

     The simple key for your consistent happiness is to keep your pendulum swinging from good to better, and better to best. You must find the good in every situation!

     You must see change as a good thing. No matter what, find the good in everything that happens to you. You will begin to see your life change for the better. You will notice that the changes are for the best. The universe wants you to succeed, and when you have shifted your thoughts to finding the good in a situation, you will be able to maintain positive momentum during the challenging times. 

     Your life is a pendulum, always swinging from one event to another. How you perceive those events is up to you. You are what you think you are! If you can shift your thoughts to only see good in a situation, your life pendulum will swing from good to better. When you learn to only see the good in every situation, your pendulum will not swing to what is perceived as bad because you have conditioned your mind to find good or learn from your experiences. 

Eventually, your life will swing from better to best. The perceived “bad” will now be seen as an opportunity for good. 

     When you begin to control your pendulum of life. You will be able to wait for your pendulum to swing back to something better because you know that the universal law of rhythm says it will. Everything always works out. You can not lose. You can only win because you are in charge of your thoughts You control how you think and feel. 

     You must have some patience. Remember, you are part of nature, and nature takes its time. Nature learns and grows as it lives. We need to do the same thing. Every experience should be looked at as either a positive experience, or a learning experience. If you are going through a tough time today, you must be positively waiting and looking for the perceived bad to turn around and become good again. You must learn from whatever is setting you back. You must look for the good always. The better you can do this, the better your life will be. 

     You don’t need a million dollars to be happy. You only need positive, grateful thoughts and the rest will happen magically. Your life will always improve after a perceived negative event. You have the power to control your thoughts (to be only positive and grateful). You are the only person in this world who can control your emotions.

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
