Rene had to have a blood test for his annual check-up at National University Hospital last January. He was terrified because the last time that was done the nurse hurt him a lot. She took the blood from the inside of his elbow.
So now, even after much cajoling we still couldn’t get him to go through with it. I asked if we could come another day. One of the nurses said, “The paranoia will still be there. We might as well get it over and done with today. Maybe we can get it from the back of his hand instead. It will be less painful.” I agreed. But Rene still put up quite a struggle that it took me and three nurses to hold him down.
But he didn’t even realize it was already over when it was done. It was less painful than what his body and mind perceived it to be. He even laughed at himself for putting up such a struggle.
I was just glad it was over and done with. I don’t want go through it again – that’s why I’m not looking forward to the next check-up.
I just hope that at our next visit, Rene will remember that it’s not as painful as he perceives it to be. Cross fingers…
Our sponsoring thoughts greatly influence the expectations we have about a possible outcome or consequence of our decisions or actions. Sponsoring thoughts are thoughts that have been given to us by our parents, our teachers, our religion, society and practically the world in general. Sponsoring thoughts are what freeze us from creating our realities in order for us to know Who We Really Are and Who We Want To Be.
Sponsoring thoughts come from fear. The only way to invalidate sponsoring thoughts is to ignore them. Once they are ignored the soul will have no expectations whatsoever. No expectations other than the perfect outcome.
To me, sponsoring thoughts usually begin with these two words – “what if” – which are not in my vocabulary anymore. Well… Not totally…
