Mountain or Molehill?

moleHillMtn_smSometimes 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?”


  1. Hi Christy, I’m sending you positive thoughts regarding your health. It sounds like you’re on the road to recovery…just don’t stop giving yourself TLC.
    Regarding denial…In the past, it was my primary coping mechanism, but I am now more watchful and in tune with my body. I listen when it speaks to me.
    Joanne 🙂


    • Hi Joanne,
      Thanks for your comment and good wishes. I love the wisdom of listening to your body. When people drive their bodies from their heads they definitely miss a lot of important information as well as aliveness! 🙂


  2. Hi Christy, I hope you are soon in good health. Have you ever tried taking Vermont Elderberry Syrup when you feel a cold coming on? I started using it a couple of years ago, and have found it really helps me stay well.


  3. Christy,
    I find it amazing how your experiences parallel something I can relate to as well.
    “Mountains or molehills stem from perception since the same underlying facts, once filtered, bring differing experiences.” This statement helps me realize that my filter and someone else’s filter create a reality that are different for both of us, neither right nor wrong, merely different.
    Sending healing thoughts so your illness is merely a molehill.


    • Hi Lori,
      I do find it fascinating how what we think about what happens colors our experience as much as what actually occurs. The world would be a radically different place if everyone had the same filter.

      Thanks for your good wishes.

      Warm regards,


  4. M&Ms ~ sound like a good topic for a chat 😉
    So, yes. Intuition and Insight are our friends ~
    The mind? Not so much, if it makes ‘negative’ mountains out of molehills 🙂
    Be well. Kumud.


    • Ha Kumud, spoken like the true Twitter chat host you are! Yes, the mind poses as our friend even while it creates the problems it proposes to solve – rather diabolically clever, I’d say. Thanks for your good wishes and comment.
      Warm regards,
