“I've read tons of self help books, I just finished Let Go and Live in the Now. It truly has been an amazing eye-opener. Thank you.”

— Tom M.

“Guy Finley has helped me to help myself and I am so glad I found him and his website. If I could have back all the wasted money I have spent on the mystic, voodoo magician, healer, ancient Indian dances, eating cabbage buried in the ground, talking to people who can communicate with people in my past.

I think I have been with all the clowns that are not in the circus and boy are they pricey.”

— Suzanne O'Hearn, Gretna, NE

Let the Dead Bury the Dead

Key Lesson: Identifying with any kind of negative thought or feeling for having realized, inescapably, the fact that you are spiritually asleep is itself, a manifestation of the same level of mechanical self over which you now mourn.

Catch and Release Reactions Before They Catch You!

When the doctor taps your knee and it suddenly jerks, you don't get upset with your leg for jumping out of control. Why? Because in that moment, you realize your temporary jumpy experience is an involuntary physical reaction.

But, how do you view your emotional reactions when they start jerking you around? Not only are they hard on you, but once they're done, you're then hard on yourself with a negative reaction to your first reaction. Here's how to release and relax yourself from these runaway self wrecking reactions.

To begin with, understand that you are not your own reactions, anymore than the burst of a flashing skyrocket is the night sky it temporarily illuminates. And yet, it really does feel that way. Let's find out why.

Painful reactions to life events are just mechanical, emotional knee jerks. They only become more than a package from the past when the me mind says "I" to the first reaction. This misplaced identification may feel like you, but it's not. And now you can learn this rescuing fact for yourself.

Each time you feel a reaction about to take you over, just relax from yourself. Let that reaction be there, within you, without your involvement. Don't say "I" to it.

This conscious new action releases the reaction to complete its life, instead of stealing yours. It soon fades and you're free. So, relax. And release yourself.
