It began with a split front tire on my dirt bike. Both my husband
and I are Reiki Masters in our 50s and 60s. Riding motorcycles
in the dirt is fun for us and a great way to get grounded.
I also consider it a good form of meditation because If a rider
is not fully present in the moment (in the body) he or she will
most likely crash and thats not much fun!
The flat tire was on my KX-80 motorcycle with its 6 speed 175 Yamaha
engine. My partner/husband Roi Halse built these special lightweight
motorcycles in his machine shop. The day that he replaced the tire,
we rode around where the ground was soft and a little muddy, and
I did not notice any difference in the new tire. Roi asked me, Hows
the tire? and I said, It works great! Thank you!
I never thought of it again.
The next day we went on a longer trip on some logging roads. You
can ride for miles without seeing a house or public roads. In the
area we were riding that day there were lots of rocks and hard surfaces.
I noticed my wrists were hurting from the pounding of the bike on
the rough road filled with large rocks, but I didnt complain.
Then my body, my buttocks, and my legs also were feeling very tired.
Very unusual, I thought to myself, I must be out of shape, I
must practice more. I began to stand up more on the foot pegs
of the bike using my legs as springs. That seemed to ease the bumps.
When we got home we found 3 bolts missing and a broken motor mount
on the bike. That proved it was a rough ride! It was really weird
that I didnt complain.
It never occurred to me that my front tire had too much air. It
had 35 pounds of pressure instead of the usual 7 pounds it requires.
On hard surfaces that makes the bike bounce like one of those high
bouncing balls. Im a good rider and we ride fast. Roi has
won many MC trophies and international medals; hes no slow
poke. Thinking back I must be an excellent rider, too, because I
was able to stay on the trail with all the bouncing around I did.
Now comes the Mind Trip that drew my attention to the male myth.
The scenario is: The Man, the mechanic fixed the bike therefore
the motorcycle must be okay. So, therefore, I am NOT okay
- I must be somehow at fault. Now I know I am
more than Okay, and I dont know where this mind program came
from. It was hiding and this ride brought it out in the open.
These are mental excuses invented by the mind to
support the male myth and hide the real facts. Some of the programs
going through my mind were: Women are not to complain. Women
must suffer in silence. Because you are a woman you must try harder.
Women must endure. If things are not working properly it must somehow
be your fault. You must be out of condition, you need more exercise,
you are really out of shape physically.
When we got back home I casually mentioned to Roi that I was really
tired and my bike seemed to be harder to ride. Its usually
very easy to ride. Roi seemed to get very interested and kept asking
questions. What was wrong with your bike?
Maybe my shocks are not working? I answered.
The front ones. I never ever thought it was the tire.
If I had mentioned it during the ride, it would have been very simple
to let a little air out of the tire.
Why didnt you check my work? You knew I replaced your
tire. He was getting angry at me for not telling him when
I was in pain.
These were good questions, but I didnt have an answer until
some time later next day. While driving to town to get supplies
these self-sabotaging sub-programs of the mind began to reveal themselves
to me. I got so excited that I could hardly drive while I was making
notes on the side of a cardboard box.
Once we can see any of these problems, it is fairly easy to clear
them. The secret is to find out that there is a problem. Then we
can do something about it. Interfacing with the subconscious mind
we can change the mind programs and stop repeating the same old
limiting behavior, which, in many cases, has been set in motion
many lifetimes ago. If it has not been healed its still adversely
affecting the outcome of all our endeavors. Old or useless self-sabotaging
programs, including those from friends and family, affect our lives
big time. Unless these programs are ferreted out and erased they
are always running in the background, affecting our beliefs, therefore
shaping our reality.
You must find and eliminate the root cause or the problem may return.
The myth that the male is always right was in my 9th
lifetime back. I brought it up to the present moment in my subconscious
and asked for it to be released. I released these self-sabotaging
beliefs and energized the situation with the positive affirmations:
I am whole and complete. I am always lead by Spirit
to the correct action. I only accept beneficial beliefs
that will lead me to even more joy and freedom.
I realized that the flat tire was not an accident! It set the stage
for an interaction with Roi, my mind, and me. It had to be dramatic
enough to get my attention, to make me feel the feelings and find
the hidden program still running and controlling my life. Thank
you, God, for another experience in consciousness.
