I have had this theory for a while now. When someone commits an act of self sabotage it is equal to having an autoimmune disorder. And they both come from lack of self love. It’s called the theory of S.H.I.T. or Simply Handle IT. Tools to turn the excrement into exactly what it is. Excrement that should be flushed down the toilet.
S.H.I.T. Example 1: Super Heroes In Transformation. Embrace the super heroes of your life. The cape is another form of wings. Fly with them as you would with Superman. I’ve had so much fun with a super hero spirit guide lately. Together we do that I once thought was fiction. Super Heroes are everywhere in my life, each with a unique gift to offer. But I had to open myself up to receive their gifts. They were patient with me and for that I am grateful. A Super Hero sign? Persistence. They will show up again and again and each time brighter than the time before.
S.H.I.T. Example 2: Smoke Hints of Impending Transition. Get out of the way. Call for help. And then embrace what’s about to happen. Fire will do what it’s meant to do. The smoldering ash gives birth to that which was not possible before. I personally experienced this when I was about 14 years old. Our home caught fire. From the ashes we received loving kindness in many forms. And a couple of unwanted spirits left our home as well.
S.H.I.T. Example 3: Smell Hints of Impending Turds. Get the heck out when you first smell something funny. My first job out of college got smelly. I ignored the smell and tried to cover it up but then it turned into a big turd. I found an air freshener called “Walk Away.” Ah! Refreshing air! A bright and shiny world revealed the most amazing experiences of my life! I went on to use one of the first Macintosh Apple computers as a graphic designer on a publication. Went on from there to work with amazing people at an ad agency. And from there found the courage to move my family to a place where my husband could be home every day.
S.H.I.T. Example 4: Sunshine Helps Internal Tuning. Drawn to the sunshine of Arizona, I discovered my love mantra. On the Apache Junction Trail, the road and scenery triggered the mantra ‘I. O. E. O. U.” which opened my heart little by little until I could finally love myself enough to find the peace and joy I knew was in me all along. I.O.E.O.U. are the vowels of “I Love You.” And in the sunshine, I read a book called, “Whatever Arises, Love That” by Matt Kahn which I recommend. Take trips to the places that call to you. Even if it’s the local park. I sing I.O.E.O.U. every day of my life and the results have been profound. I went from an unemployed wanna be to a prosperous graphic designer working with a group of geniuses at an innovative company. And I shine light in the sky ways of downtown Minneapolis by silently singing ‘I.O.E.O.U.” Try your own love mantra and sing it, you’ll find love in places you previously feared. The fear transforms into sadness and then into love. That’s the ultimate tune up. Transforming fear into love.
Look for more Theory of S.H.I.T. examples to come. My vision is the theory to transform my autoimmunity which attacks my body into immunity which repels that which I do not need.
