DR JOHN DEMARTINI - Updated 1 year ago
When was the last time you experienced a crisis? Did it seem like it was the end of the world? Did you feel helpless, frustrated, burned-out or just down and depressed? Did you say to yourself, "This is the last straw. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired! This has got to stop. I can't go another day like this."Everyone experiences moments where outer circumstances appear to be an overwhelming crisis or stressing. To many these circumstances dominate and rule their lives. These crises leave lasting scars unless they are recognized as truly being blessings instead of stressings. When the worst crisis becomes your greatest blessing, you heal. Nature does not deliver crisis without opportunity or misfortune without blessing.
Some people have crises that drag out for years. Others seem to nip their crises in the bud almost immediately. It's not the outer circumstances that necessarily create the crises. While they may elicit the crises, it is a person's reaction that actually turns circumstances into crises.
The length of time it takes for you to recognize your outer crisis as a blessing, correlates with your degree of wisdom. If you prefer to watch the video on Blessing in Every Stressing, click below. ↓
Watch Dr Demartini expand upon blessings in stressing below:
"Pure wisdom is the instantaneous knowing that each crisis in life is indeed a blessing"
Some misfortunes don't reveal their blessing easily, while others are recognized immediately. Hidden within all misfortunes are the seeds of an equal but opposite fortune.
In the mid 1980s, hundreds of thousands of people were let go or laid off from their jobs. Some of these people were left without income, some without other career opportunities and some, ultimately, without their families.
At first sight, this may have been perceived as a crisis, however, today many of those same people have undergone an in-depth soul-searching and re-evaluation of their lives, only to discover that they genuinely had a dream in their hearts to be, do and have something more than what they were previously experiencing and accepting.
Other people have tapped into a more profound purpose for their life than what they were allowing, and are now making their meaningful dreams come true. They are now doing exactly what they always loved to do but never had the guts to do until the crisis occurred.
A crisis is ultimately a blessing
They are the flip side of the coin of life. Many people have been temporarily devastated by broken relationships only to discover at some later time that their supposed misfortune was a blessing. Their very loss was their ultimate gain.
"Whenever a door shuts, a window opens"
The longer you live, the more this seemingly paradoxical relation becomes evident and the more you see the correlation between past crises and future blessings. Through time and experience, your reactions subside and more patient actions result.
Since blessings are seeded in crisis and it seems quite easy to be thankful for blessings, why not move wisely ahead and assume that any perceived crisis is a blessing? Be thankful for its strengthening qualities. Why not act thankfully instead of reacting pitifully?
As long as outer circumstances run your life, you can expect a life filled with crises. But as soon as you take charge of your reactions and change them into thankful actions, your life will begin to flow.
You won't be confronted with a crisis you can't handle. Be thankful.
The next time you're confronted with what appears to be a crisis, just ask yourself, "What is the hidden blessing?" The deeper you look, the easier you will find it. When you do, you can say "good-bye" to its corresponding frustration, anger and depression.
No tree stood strong without the wind. No group stood strong without its heretic. No person can be strong without a challenge.
So be thankful for yours!
If you’d love to learn how to put the principles covered in this blog into action, join me at my 2-day seminar, the Breakthrough Experience, where I’ll introduce you to a powerful self-development process called the Demartini Method.
The Demartini Method is a breakthrough discovery and cutting-edge individual transformation methodology that results in a new perspective and paradigm in thinking and feeling.
It is the key methodology incorporated in Demartinian Psychology. The Demartini Method consists of Executive Function Development exercises used strategically to drive the evolution of the brain - from subcortical dominance to prefrontal cortex or executive center dominance.
It is the culmination of more than five decades of research and studies in numerous disciplines, including physics, philosophy, theology, metaphysics, psychology, astronomy, mathematics, neurology, and physiology. It’s a cognitive process that involves balancing your mathematical equations of perceptions through a continuous thinking and writing action, driving you from your more primitive survival brain (systems 1) dominance to your more advanced thrival self-governing (systems 2) brain dominance.
The Demartini Method results in greater self-governing executive function and thus life mastery.
It is a powerful transformation process used by many leading specialists in the mind mastery field such as psychology, psychiatry, coaching, mentoring, teaching, and holistic healing.
