Is Your “Thermostatic Setting” Preventing You From Experiencing All of the Freedom, Success & Happy Relationships You Desire?

Here’s How I Almost Compromised My Own Happy Relationship…

…and One Simple Shift to Allow for Much More Joy in Life.

There’s a “thermostatic setting” within each of us that governs how much good, fun, love and life we allow ourselves to experience and enjoy.

In order to change our thermostatic setting, let’s first take a look at what a thermostat is.

“Having it all” is not just a fantasy for you to imagine

A thermostat is a cybernetic system that measures variance.

For example, we have a thermostat in our home that controls the temperature of our house, and we control that temperature by setting the thermostat in the wall.

Say we set the temperature to 72 degrees in the summer. The thermostat reads the variance in the atmosphere and if it gets too warm, the air conditioner will be triggered to kick on the cool air. If it gets too cold, it will turn off.

Just like the thermostat in your home, the thermostat within you is set to a certain amount of fun, love or happiness, and it kicks on to try to keep you at those levels. In order to increase the overall good in your life, you must change your thermostatic setting.

And you absolutely can change your thermostatic setting. Because here’s the truth: In spirit, there’s no limit to the amount of freedom, flow or joy in life!

Here’s a story about how my own thermostatic setting threatened a very happy relationship of mine, and how I was able to reset it…

I’m happily married to a wonderful man named Joe Dickey. We’ve been together for over a decade now.

About seven or eight months after we got married, we went away on a little weekend vacation together.

One morning, we sat on the patio drinking coffee, looking out onto the lake and having a great conversation.

And I thought to myself right then,

“I have never been this happy in my whole life!”

Now, at that point, I had a highly successful career, wonderful children, many great friends and an all-around lovely, fulfilling life…

But at that exact moment, I was experiencing the deep satisfaction that comes from truly and spiritually connecting with another human being – a partner.

I had never had the passion, love, commitment, support and FUN I had dreamed of until then, and I was just feeling so happy.

Joe got up at one point and went back inside and I sat there, marveling at how amazing I felt.

After a little while, I got up and went inside too. As I did, I noticed a sock on the floor.

I began thinking to myself,

“Oh my gosh, why is that sock on the floor? Joe is such a neat and orderly person, and I’ve never seen him throw a sock on the floor before! But maybe he was just being that way at the beginning of our relationship and he’s really a very messy person and now that we’re married I’ll start to see that!”

Now thankfully, for many years, I had been practicing and teaching a technique for identifying and repatterning thoughts…

This technique is what I like to call “notice what you’re noticing,” which is a way to practice mindfulness.

So I paused, stepped back and noticed the thoughts I was having.

You see, when we notice the train tracks our thoughts are on, we can decide if we want to go where that train is taking us. And we can either continue on, or stop the thoughts in their tracks.

After I did this, I realized,

“Mary, look! You were just thinking about how you’re happier than you’ve ever been. You’re not used to this level of happiness. So you walked in the room and your internal thermostat tried to dial your happiness down to the normal level you’re used to!”

I had found something “wrong” in my incredibly happy relationship and run with it.

Not only was there a sock on the floor… this was maybe going to become a new trend… and maybe Joe wasn’t the person I thought he was!

But once I realized what I was doing, that my internal thermostatic setting was trying to keep my happiness at a certain level, I was able to stop these thoughts and simply embrace the happiness I was feeling.

By doing so, I reset my thermostat for a greater amount of love and happiness in my life.

(A Quick Update on Joe and “The Sock Story”)

Full disclosure – I recorded the video at the top of this post before last month’s DreamBuilder LIVE event, held in Arlington, Virginia, just outside of Washington DC.

Just before lunch on day 2 of the event, Joe got on stage and revealed to the 1000 people in the audience that I had never actually told him about finding his vacation sock until he heard this story from the stage during the last DreamBuilder LIVE!

So Joe, who loves fun, made his way to the stage and confessed, saying:

“Mary, I found the other sock!”

And now back to your regularly scheduled blogging!

We all have edges for how much happiness, success and fulfillment we allow ourselves, but when we come up against them, we can CHOOSE to re-pattern our thoughts…

When you start to think to yourself:

  • “This happy relationship will certainly sour”
  • “This amount of success is too good to be true”
  • “I wonder when the other shoe is going to drop”

notice what you’re noticing and interrupt your thoughts.

Take pause and consider that this is perhaps just your thermostatic setting seeking to prevent you from experiencing more love, more success and more happiness than you’re used to.

And then say to yourself,

“Nothing’s wrong here, this is just more joy than I’m used to. And you know what? I’m going to make this happiness, freedom or success my new normal.”

    Mary you are just amazing. I’m so glad the spirit helped you to stop limiting yourself to the church, and that you said yes to the universal call. I connect with you on a level that words are unable to express. My my, this video really spoke volumes to me, and it is so funny to observe these things in ourselves and to know we are capable of observing and changing these paradigms. Thank you Mary.

  • Hello Mary, “Life is what you make of it –
    ‘A PEARL”, none of us is perfect- Marriage is a game of give and take and he has a sense of humor, that goes a long way. Enjoy every moment of life, it goes all too fast. I am now 84 not sure how I got there, but I had a great husband for 53 good years. God is good all the time. May God Bless you both, love, Marge Dawson.

  • Thankyou for this timely, reassuring and uplifting video! I was thinking” things are going smoothly. I wonder what’s next?” a couple of days ago and lo and behold I spent much of yesterday worrying about a potential health issue due to some possible symptoms. This has been my pattern but I will now affirm to myself that life can be peaceful and enriching in an ongoing manner.

    Thank you so much! I have recently rekindled a
    wonderful relationship from 40 years ago and been struggling with my thermostat. Thank you for clarifying and your suggestion.
    this man has been the love of my life for 44 years.
    Much Gratitude.

  • Hi, Ms. Mary. I guess my thermostat on my career has been “faulty”. Guess I need to “fix” it starting now. Thanks so much for your sharing.

  • Nai`a NEWLIGHT

    Definitely, around sex!

  • Mine is that I don’t get to be in a loving relationship.

  • I love hearing your belly laugh Mary! What a beautiful laugh you have.

  • Hahaha, hello Mary.
    My thermostate has brought me down on all levels in my life. With my relationships, work, money, parentship. But I can say now that this is past time, because I found you, Bob Proctor, Nathalie Ledwell and Gabriëlle Rutte in the Netherlands. Now I am a professional EFT practitioner and my whole life has changed.

  • OMG The sock story couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment.
    I had recently meet a man online who seemed to be the man I have been working on manifesting for a few months. He had a lot of the qualities I want in the perfect for me forever partner. Kind, caring, intelligent, witty, handsome, right height. All sorts of wonderful things. I was so excited and overjoyed when we started texting and talking everyday. Everything seemed so amazing. It was like the universe had picked him specifically for me.
    Then one day I started thinking there is something wrong here, this is just too good to be true. When is he going to show his true colours. Couldn’t get the thoughts out of my head for about a week.
    Well guess what, suddenly I’m getting really inappropriate sexual texts from him.
    I was beside myself. I thought what happened to this man who seemed so wonderful.
    I saw your email come in today and read your story. Wow, did I ever have a thermostatic reset with this man.
    Even though I am still wondering if I had never thought those defeatist thoughts would he have done that and did I manifest it into being or was it the universes way of showing me what my higher self was trying to tell me.
    Love the sock story and the idea of resetting myself to a higher level of thermostatic control to allow that amazing man to show up when it is the right moment and not look for the flaws and faults that will ruin a beautiful partnership.

  • I’m praying this will help me, I need this desperately in my life.

  • Victoria

    Thank you, I loved your comment about, “Notice what you’re noticing.” But what I kept asking myself was, how did you handle the sock incident? Did you leave it there to test him, or ask him to pick it up? I would love to hear back from you.

  • Phyllis Weinrich

    I truly hope you can help me. I seem to get involved in impossible relationships. Now I don’t know to pull away or stay the storem.

    Good evening Mrs. Morrissey,
    thank you for your very inspiring “thermostating setting” video. It was great fun and excitement for me to watch it today evening, thank you.
    A couple of years ago a good friend and collegue of mine, a president of two US companies visited me here in Bavaria and Austria. After a few days travelling around , celebrating xmas and having a lot of fun, a pair of socks , sorry, the drinking habits of this lady ruined the friendship, relationship ! Could you believe it ? After reflecting to myself and stopping being involved with people around me in business or private having a close relationship to alcohol, my life changed dramatically to the positive in all ways. Socks or alcohol can change the thermatic setting. Thank you for your wonderful video . Have fun, enjoy the american lifestyle and your President. Have a nice evening. Best Regards from Bavaria, the best known beer and wine country in Germany.

  • Brilliant inspiration, thank you. I realize that I have had the thermostat turned way down, because I thought it was my duty to heal everyone else, and limit the flow to me. I now turn my personal thermostat way up high, because I am ready to receive all the abundance life has for me.

    I feel like I can’t take care of my daughter and spend enough time with her and make enough money at the same time. I feel I can’t use my gifts to make money.

  • Deanne Overvold

    I had a good life nd lost it all in four months. My husband of 30 years developed leukemia and died 4 months later. My sons and I were left with broken hearts, debt and no money. We have struggled for almost 4 years and have the possibility of being homeless by the end of the year. We have been in two terrible car accidents, lost our home, been robbed, experienced illness ourselves and lost 7 more family members and been abandoned by family and friends. I almost lost my eye and severely damaged my leg so my oldest son has been taking care of me. He needs to move on with his life. We all still grieve. Do you have any ideas for us?
