Sometimes the Akashic Records reveal how people make molehills out of mountains and other times mountains out of molehills. Most people tend to distort what happens either by overemphasizing or underemphasizing the significance of everything from health matters to overheard comments to their latest so-called failure or mistake. Minimizing or exaggerating allows you to create your own story, one which feels more true to you than the bare facts.
Ten days ago I got a sore throat which proceeded through the chills and aches, then congestion and coughing of the flu. Now my mother suspects I have walking pneumonia and insists I see my doctor. Yet when I tune into my body, I feel my health returning, noticing the progress while also aware if it doesn’t resolve soon, seeing my doctor makes sense. I come from mountain-making stock, people who often inflated the possible ramifications of events, and now I must practice consciously responding to reality, not others’ interpretation of it.
On the other end of the spectrum lie those who fail to comprehend the significance of their experience. While denial can help in sidestepping overwhelm, it can also create a false sense of safety. It shocks me when someone tells me about a serious health incident involving one of the body’s critical systems (heart, breath, or brain) they didn’t seek help for immediately, underplaying the significance of what happened. Denial can also play a role when someone learns to tolerate mistreatment or even violence when they reframe their experience to downplay the risk.
Mountains or molehills stem from perception since the same underlying facts, once filtered, bring differing experiences. For Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure self-helps related to perceiving you can apply Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 2 which I also discuss in my post Eyesight, Insight, Foresight, SEL 14 for mental and emotional acuity, SEL 18 for how you perceive yourself, and/or the Organ Function Diaphragm to connect to your higher awareness.
Do you make mountains or molehills? When do you trust your perception as “true?”
