This word seemed to elude Me for several years until yesterday. It got Me Thinking that Paradigms, are synonymous with habits and Beliefs. The definition for a Paradigm is as follows: One that serves as a pattern or model, and A set of assumptions, concepts, values, practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline.
Now it seems to Me that when One holds a Paradigm that does not serve them in any way, even though it is some thing that may Be Comfortable to them, Your Life will continue to flow in the direction of the Paradigm. Lets say You were taught or Experienced a certain fear when growing up, such as the fear of heights. Think back to when You were Free of that fear… Now Think of when that fear came to Be… If You are Having difficulty in pinpointing when this was, or how it became to Be a fear. Simply relax, and clear Your mind of Thoughts. This is easily done by focusing on Your in and out breathes. You will notice when the only Thought You are holding during this process is that of which You wish to Remember, that memory will come to You with Ease.
The point of all this is to Have You notice that every thing We Experience and Perceive filters through Our Paradigms. Another example that was Given to Me was, how is it when People speak of skin color they refer to dark skinned People as “black”, and light skinned People as “white”. When if You really notice that the dark skinned People are a dark shade of brown, and the white skinned are more of a light shade of brown. However We see what We Choose to see, and usually We see what is not Truly there, based upon Our Paradigms!
You may Be wondering, how Do I change a Paradigm that is not serving Me Well? Like I stated above, Paradigms are synonymous with habits, Simply Create a new habit! Start small, and move Your way up from there. We all Have routines, whether We Believe that or not, We all Do. Now if some one, or You interrupt a routine even slightly, most of Us tend to get un-Comfortable for a Moment until We fall back into Our groove again. It has been said that when You are un-Comfortable with some thing, that You are Doing some thing right in way of changing a Paradigm, for once You break through the un-Comfort, that new Paradigm will soon become Comfortable, and Compliment what You Desire out of Life.
I Have noted before some where that “Your Life is working Perfectly for the way You Think!” and this is completely True, whether You Like it or not. Your thoughts Create Your Reality! So I suggest Being Aware of what You are Thinking if You Desire to Experience more of what You Dream about!
