ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 14 – WHOSE IDEA ARE YOU?

The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are. A subtle kind of murder – Jim Morrison

A few years ago I started to question everything around me and within me because I was bent on getting the desired results in specific areas of my life. I had been thought too many things that was not working and I had completely forgotten that what I held unto for too long were learned behavior that I either picked by observation or by acquired knowledge. Most of the things I held unto were not beliefs I had questioned because I was not even given the chance to question them before I was socialized to believe them.

 The moment I started to question them it dawned on me how much I had learnt and become convinced about that had nothing to do with me. For example, I could be easily excused for getting married and expecting...

ARE YOU CULTURALLY COMPATIBLE?

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 13 – CULTURAL COMPATIBILITY

The third important check you have to troubleshoot is the culture of your spouse which is basically powered by his/her beliefs. Unknown to many couples the beliefs they are often willing to die for are beliefs whose origin they have never examined and our unwillingness to shift from a belief that doesn’t promote the best interest of all eventually harms a marriage that could have been salvaged.

 When you hear the verse of the Bible that says ‘Don’t be unequally yoked together with an unbeliever’ what comes to your mind?

One gap we frequently miss from that verse is the word ‘Unbeliever’ which is an English word that means someone who doesn’t believe your beliefs. The person may not necessarily be a bad person, it just simply means the person is not the right fit for your beliefs and where you want to go. For example, if a man believes only his wife...

HEALING IS YOUR RIGHTS

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 12 – HEALING IS YOUR RIGHTS

 I love what I do daily in assisting people uninstall their hell and install their desired heaven. It is a job that is more or less a calling for me because even though clients pay a bit above the national average for my services the miracle of  seeing my clients finally discovering themselves and giving themselves the permission to live having uninstalled the softwares of self sabotaging beliefs that held them bound for too long is nothing short of a miracle.

Accidental spouses ain’t bad people; they are often victims of a bad engineering by the people that influenced them. However, there comes a time you must take responsibility for your pain because pains don’t go away by wishing them away or hoping the person that hurts you comes back to apologize.

Pains go away by taking responsibility for rising above the pains with a view to discovering what you may have...

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 11 – SCRAMBLING YOUR PAIN

 ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 11 – SCRAMBLING YOUR PAIN

 Too many times it becomes tough to unmask a spouse who is in pains because their physical manifestation either looks like a virtue that looks commendable while the person is actually dying inside. Sometimes pains may manifest in the following ways;

  • Getting involved in so many activities that makes the person really appear zealous and dependable
  • Giving oneself fully to a task that you never rest or relax. This may appear as being a workaholic but could be masking inner pain that is yet to be confronted
  • Seeking to correct everyone at all times once their wrong is spotted such that you look like the one who can make everything right
  • Inability to stand those who are too playful and consistently calling them to get very serious. Sometimes while on the surface this looks like you are trying to get people focused truth is that their play often reminds you of what life stole from you or what you...

Bursting the cycle of PAIN

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 10

Pain is real and we can’t wish it away or pretend it doesn’t exist.

The subcoscious part of the human man chronicles a record of everything that has happened to us since we were born and they are all stored using the meaning we ascribed to it at the time they happened.

Your mind has got what looks like different faculties with similar information stored in the category they belong. For example every happy perceived happy moment is stored in your bliss channel while every perceived sad moment is stored in your horror movie channel. Every perceived relaxation is stored in your serenity channel and so on.

The amazing thing about our mind however is that it doesn’t know the difference between what is simulated and what is real. Which means sometime when you see a movie or listen to a story that involves the pains of others your mind can interpret it as your pain and store in your horror channel. If you don’t...

HACK YOUR PAIN & HEAL

 ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 9

  1. PAIN HACK

The second area you must check out for in your spouse to prevent an accidental spouse is the pains they have been through and what they have done about the pain.

I am sure you must be familiar with the quote ‘Hurting people hurt others’. It holds so true in 7 out of every 10 cases.

Not many can relate the crisis in their relationships to their past pains that they have not fully overcome and this is often due to the fact that we have no structured system to assist people overcome pains. The concept of seeing a therapist or a certified family life professional is still new across Africa so people often consider it a sign of vulnerability to go pour out their heart to a professional to get help.

 The other factor here is the role religious organizations have played in the apathy towards professional counseling. While there has been tremendous improvements with many churches embracing...

REDISCOVERING YOUR HUMANITY

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 8 - REDISCOVERING YOUR HUMANITY 

When the humanity of a person is compromised it is almost impossible for that person to live as a healthy human being because such will develop a world view that he/she would assume is the only world view that exist and sentiments will take the place of rational thinking.

 

For example I have worked in therapy with loads of people who talk supernatural but have never explored the natural because they have been wrongly taught that there is something wrong with being natural. They forget that super is the extra on the natural which is why they can be highly religious yet unable to effectively relate with the next man.

 

Somehow the concept of supernatural makes them believe they are immune to what others go through yet their daily reality shows them something is fundamentally wrong which they would rather die than address. The highest expression of supernatural is LOVE for God...

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 7 - ARE YOU STILL HUMAN? 

‘An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity’

Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

News flash: Hurricane Matthew kills 19 people in US, flooding in North Carolina

 

What is your internal response?

Did you feel indifference or your heart skipped a little because you could literally feel the pain of those who lost someone dear and those that lost their properties?

Did you simply thank God for keeping you away from such zone & move on with your life as if those killed were not human beings?

Often times we brag about our love for others but when opportunities present itself to express love we display our true reality of lack of concern for humanity and exactly that same pattern or thought process is behind domestic violence, adultery & other reasons responsible for marital...

What happened to your HUMANITY?

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 6

The late Nelson Mandela once said that if evil can be taught it then means good can be taught.

A child comes into this world with a clean slate but the world he grows into installs diverse programs into him that eventually shapes him into something else.

No one was born with anger and none was born with violence and terrorism. None was born with sex addiction and no one came here with mediocrity.

Every bad behavior was learnt or in my words installed by everyone in your history that your "system" was vulnerable to.

I sometimes study the beauty and the beast of the world and marvel at how terrorists find their way into marriages and produce children and I wonder who those children would grow up to become?

I also observe and wonder the mentality kids born in war thorn nations would grow up to have and the kind of spouse they would turn out to be.

We are human beings not human things and the tenets that guides our...

IS YOUR HUMANITY INTACT?

ACCIDENTAL SPOUSE – 5

Tip 1: HUMANITY CHECK – I have met loads of highly religious people but I am not sure I have interfaced with too many human beings whose humanity is still intact and hasn’t been tampered with in the last few years and that includes me.

Sadly, we have taught people over time that they need to change religion for them to be sane but what we have failed to do is to examine the damage that has been done to their humanity and find a way to get it restored.

- Why would a human being look at another being and feel superior to that being on the basis of gender, race or religion?

- Why would an adult perpetually find it difficult to take a decision unless he gets approval from another adult?

- Why would a husband hit his wife simply because she doesn’t agree with him & attribute it to the devil?

- Why would someone talk down others or talk to people anyhow because he/she feels He/she has authority over them?
