ERIC RAINES: “Changing Ourselves First”

Hey people. Guess what. The only way you will ever change anything is by changing yourself. If something in the world makes you so angry that you cannot let it go and you are compelled to attack your fellow man, you are following directly along with the programming.

Division is the name of the game right now, on all levels.

When we activate the bioelectric flow, it is not the blockage or the darkness that we focus on. What we focus on is creating such a clean, open flow that it begins to radiate with pure light. Then, we bring that into the darkness and it is forced to transmute into what we wish to experience. It cannot even resist, this is universal law.

As above, so below.

When you focus on what you want to experience, instead of what you do not, you create a field that attracts that same energy into your life.

Right now, I see humanity once again dancing to the puppet masters’ strings.

Look inside at what you are feeling. Is it wholesome? Is it kind? Is it for the benefit of all, not just your group?

It is not about me or you, it is about us. We. Every single last one of us.

Humanity. We are approaching the eye of the needle. Do you really want to take this baggage through? Because it won’t fit and we are going regardless of your comfort level.

Everyone keeps wishing their family and friends would just “wake up”… what kind of example are you creating? God is inside of all of us and it is about damn time we started to honor the God in all life, not just what you deem worthy.

End rant.

Most of this post is directed at the MAGA hat wearing kids being drummed at and the absolute uproar that followed, but the general alignment of FB today is on this same divisive path.

MELISSA BLUE RAY: “Starseeds — Awakening The Divine Blueprint”

4 Universal Laws That Make or Break Your Manifestations

Many of us starseeds and lightworkers have incarnated here from higher realms and ascended planets to assist humanity in this time of change and transition.  As this awakening has started to unfold, we have felt a calling to discover a deeper purpose in our lives.  Understanding 4 important universal laws and how they relate to manifestation is the key to releasing abundance blocks and awakening to our Divine Blueprint, our life purpose and mission.

So many of us have bravely awakened in our different stages and cycles. We have heard the call to be of service, yet many of us don’t understand how to handle this transition and manifest our newly discovered purpose or mission.  We want to claim our sovereign divine birthright, that of living in total joy, prosperity and abundance, yet we find ourselves confused and stuck as we adapt to these new energies and to navigating our newly awakened realities.  In this article we will explore 4 universal laws that influence our ability to manifest the prosperous life we intend to create through discovery of our Divine Blueprint.  These are the Law of Karma, the Law of Attraction, The Law of Intention, and the Law of Detachment.

Let’s begin by asking ourselves these questions:

  • Do you feel a calling to serve others through your divine life purpose?
  • Do you know that you are divinely guided and protected?
  • Do you know that everything in our material universe is created mentally?
  • Do you receive messages from your guides through ideas arising from inspired thought?

If you can say yes to any of these questions, then you have already opened the door to increased abundance and prosperity.

It’s important to understand that your awakening and opening this door to the abundance contained within the Infinite Mind is only the first step. The next step is to understand the integration of the Law of Karma and the Law of Attraction.

In understanding the Law of Karma, we acknowledge that negative actions reflect back to the source as negative circumstances, so do the positive effects of consecrated or inspired action reflect back as positive experiences and circumstances.  Once the gateway to abundance and prosperity has been opened, and your true calling discovered, you then begin inspired action to bring your dreams and desires into reality on the earthly material plane. You turn the Unmanifested (spirit) into the Manifested (material or matter).  These inspired actions (via the Law of Karma), along with the high vibration emotions such as joy, gratitude, excitement, and positive anticipation (via the Law of Attraction) will then unlock the door to the next step of manifestation.

This then leads us to another universal law, the Law of Intention.  If you are not using the Law of Intention, it is bound to have you spinning around like a hamster in a wheel. You feel like you are exerting a lot of effort, yet you seem to be headed nowhere and perceive life as a struggle.  By understanding this law, you align the accumulated positive karma from your inspired action with an intention. Because of the Law of Free Will, we can set any intention we desire.  However, I will share with you what you already know deep within, that the highest intention you can hold is that of loving devotion and service to others.  Aligning to the highest possible intention allows you access to your internal Divine Blueprint, the immense manifestation power of the Infinite Mind.  Doing this is truly the key to the mental transmutation of poverty consciousness into prosperity consciousness.

Don’t forget, my beloved fellow starseeds and lightworkers, that no matter how connected you think you are, or how high you try to hold your vibrational field, you will only manifest your desires by both taking action and simultaneously embracing those actions.  Don’t dread or resist those action items that need to be completed.  To do so is not inspired action and serves to block the abundant flow of All That Is. Allow yourself to be a thread of divine light that touches the Earth.  Use that light to raise the vibrational level of your own consciousness and radiate it out into the world through loving devotion and service.

As your inspired action is completed, and the higher vibrational consciousness is fused with loving intention, there is yet one more universal law to consider on your manifestation journey. The Law of Detachment or Surrender must be upheld, and this is the total acceptance of that present moment we call “Now”.  Harnessing this universal law is achieved through faith and surrender to the higher Divine order of All That Is. As you stay centered in faith and service, you choose not to embrace feelings of fear, inadequacy, powerlessness, or other lower thought forms the programmed ego-mind chooses to create.

Once these universal laws are understood and used to your benefit, you begin to pay attention to signs being sent to you.  As you do this, you will be guided by your divine connection to your guides and to higher realms.  You will be drawn toward that which serves, and steered away from that which does not. You move through your actions with a sense of lightness and ease, every action infused with being, without judgement or attachment to outcomes. This state of being requires a complete release of control in regards to how you think the desired result will be achieved.

By staying centered in faith and affirming positive outcomes, you show the Infinite Mind of All That Is, that you are the microcosm vibrating in resonant harmony with the macrocosm. The inner and outer worlds fuse and become one. As Above, So Below.  You are now able to access the infinite power of Divine creativity and manifestation.  Suddenly you will find that all you desire is attained with effortless ease.

NEDA HASAN: “Breaking Myths And Misconceptions About The Law Of Attraction And Crushing The Confusion Surrounding It”

Myths of the Law of Attraction (3).png

Most of us have seen “The Secret”.   We’ve probably heard that “you become what you think about most” and “thoughts become things.”  We’ve devoted ourselves to the teachings of Abraham Hicks and Jack Canfield and Michael Beckwith.  We’ve all bought into “the power of positive thinking” and “don’t be negative.”

BUT HERE’S THE COLD HARD TRUTH.

Everybody wants the sunshine — nobody wants pain.  You can’t have a rainbow without any rain.

True spiritual growth isn’t about ignoring all negative thoughts and feelings and beliefs.  The only true way out is THROUGH it.  You can only run from your soul for so long, but old gremlins from the past do pop back up, and the sooner we deal with it, the more we free our spirit.  The Law of Attraction is actually more subjective then it is objective.  It’s a very personal, rather than impersonal journey.  The experience varies from person to person.  We’ve all had a bad day where something did not go our way and we want to vent, but the moment we try to vent, our best friend goes, “Just be positive and forget all that garbage.”

Another example is a man who is going through a divorce and he tries to explain how he is feeling to his friends, but his friends just convince him to suck it up, go to the bar, and have a drink.  This is emotional invalidation.  Temporary escapes only keep you satisfied for a short while — perhaps just a few hours.  It doesn’t erase the problem.  Just like me throwing my fist at the wall to relieve my anger, just helps me feel a sense of power for a little while only.  It doesn’t solve the problem.  Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break from the situation so that our energy is recharged, but that does not mean throwing the baby out with the bathwater altogether.

We have confused our physiological and ego-based emotions with our soul emotions.  They are not the same thing.  Our carnal desires represent only temporary satisfaction.  Yes, we have physical needs that are important, but we also have emotional needs.  Our true emotions come from our soul.  Our soul sends us messages through some of our most hidden feelings that we try to conceal from others.  We hurt our spirits when we don’t listen to our souls, when we turn away from our feelings, and when we try to run from them.  This manifests in the physical world too, in our relationships, our energy levels, and our physical health.

So How in the World does this all tie in to the Law of Attraction?

The law of attraction is not just about eating a sandwich because it makes you feel less hungry physically.  It’s not about sleeping because you’re tired.  Although those methods do work temporarily to make you feel better, they aren’t the answer to deeper problems.

The law of attraction is tied into our CHOICES we make with our feelings and our BELIEFS about ourselves.  When we believe we do not have a right to express our feelings like disappointment, jealousy, depression, insignificance, hurt, betrayal, excitement, joy, we turn away from our true-selves (our souls), and we damage our self-esteem and our spirit.  We are indirectly telling ourselves “Our feelings do not matter.” Our lives reflect more seemingly proof that our feelings do not matter such as someone telling you they are too busy to hear you or spend time on you.  Of course, our feelings are not us, but they are still a PART of us.  They try to tell us something about what we want.  We all have a need to know what we are feelings and be there for our feelings.  That means ALLOWING OURSELVES TO FEEL HOW WE FEEL.  Our feelings show us the way.

THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN LOW SELF-ESTEEM.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU for feeling how you feel.  You have EVERY right to feel how you feel.  Speak your emotions out loud if you have to.  Speak it to a trusted friend.  Use statements like:

“I was hurt when _____________________________________.

We are not robots, we are all star stuff, made to shine.  Why be silent?  Why just be a slave to obligation?  Dare to be expressive.  We must face our darkness within us with a positive attitude until it is transformed into light.

We must be present with our negative emotions, without judging ourselves for having them.  We do not have to ignore them and keep them buried deep within ourselves, neither do we have to act on them, but let them spill out at its convenience.  Be present with them.  Attacking others just escalates the problems.  But communication and expression with someone we trust is a great way to feel relief.

We suffered low self-esteem growing up because often our emotions were invalided.

This is a form of emotional abuse.  Our parents may have not been there for us when we were unhappy.  Maybe they fought in front of us.  Maybe they used fear to get what they wanted us to do.  The hurt child inside us will not heal unless we are present with it and remind it we are still there for it.

Anything we resist, persists.  This is a demonstration of the law of attraction.  If you’re worried about getting into a fight with a parent or spouse and you’re desperately trying to avoid it, do not be surprised when conflict just spills out!  Because that’s what you’re focused on!  Invite arguments — it can actually make you stronger.  But don’t play victim, don’t attack, and don’t suppress your emotions.  EXPRESS YOUR FEELINGS — you don’t have to bring the other person down.  It doesn’t make you the weaker one.

It might feel awkward sharing your feelings with the other person, but that’s not your fault. We live in a society that has made an enemy out of expression.

Resisting is not always a physical action, it’s a mental and emotional, internal choice we make.  Trying to RUN away from a negative thought will NOT help us to attract true joy in our lives.  This is like babying ourselves to only eat lollipops when we are supposed to also eat our green veggies!

FACE your negative thoughts.  Face your negative emotions.  Sit with them.  But don’t let your negative emotions convince you that you are negative.  Don’t believe the negative thoughts to be true.  Think of your darkness as the child within crying out for help.  They are here to make you stronger.  They are here to point to your overall need of self-esteem.  When you have a negative thought, your self-esteem is threatened.  When you feel fear as a result, that’s a sign from your soul, that it is time to ALTER a negative core belief that you have picked up about yourself throughout the course of your life.  That means looking for proof that dispels the core belief or replacing it with another belief like “Actually I am lovable because I was told I did a great job the other day”  or  “I am wonderful.  I helped this person heal.”   Your soul always wants you to feel good about yourself.  Your spirit thrives and is joyous and fulfilled when you align with your soul.  Don’t drain your spirit — let it be milked and nourished by the soul.

So, this law of attraction is really about being true to the soul.  It’s more than just “thoughts cause feelings” and “feelings cause thoughts.”  It’s fundamentally about core beliefs we have not addressed.  And they are always running around in our subconscious 24/7.

We can think positive thoughts all day long and repeat affirmations all day long, but if we have a core belief somewhere in the back of are minds that “We are not enough,” and “my feelings do not matter” then this will be an obstacle for us — it’s a contradiction to the statement —“I am wonderful.”  Repeated subconscious beliefs rule us throughout our day- governing our self-esteem and lives.  True Joy is self-love.  When we do an action like beat someone up because we are angry, or punch the wall with our fists, that is not self-loving.  Why?  Because it indicates we have a core-belief that we are powerless and we falsely believe that the only way to feel a sense of power is to use our physical bodies instead of summoning power from within ourselves.

So what is stopping you from living your best life and attracting the most joy and satisfaction?  Somewhere down the line, you have a core belief that is detrimental to your sense of self.

 

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.

If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

~Jesus

 

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Wealth is not in having many possessions.  Rather, true wealth is the richness of the soul.”

 

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere.  You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”
~Buddha

 

No matter what any of the religious scriptures say or do not say or partially say or leave out, we know our awareness is in our own bodies.  We have a choice to believe the beliefs about ourselves that cause us pain, and we have the choice to not believe it.  Our minds may remember negative events.  But we do not have to believe anything anyone tells us.  We all come to this world, and we all die.  But what we believe about ourselves is bigger than even our mental perceptions about life.

For example, I could watch a scary movie or ride a scary roller coaster, and although it may look like I am in danger to my physical senses, my belief tells me I am not in danger.  It is just a ride.  It helps to look at life like that — just a ride.  Although we may believe it is real, at least we can choose not to believe the external world is an accurate reflection of who we really are.  It’s not.  The external world is only a partial mirror.  It’s not the full reflection.  Just because life might be bad around you, doesn’t mean you are bad.  What you get in life is a portrayal of your thoughts and feelings.  It’s only a fraction of the magnificence that lies within your soul.  Your physical self is nothing compared to the beauty of your soul.  When we realize wonderful our souls are, we feel good about ourselves.  Our souls are so expressive and so patient.  It always gives us a chance to connect with it and know it.  And when we finally do know it, we can’t help but love ourselves.

That’s why true knowledge is internal knowledge.  True Love is Knowing The Soul, the core of the true self.

 

“A sin is anything that goes against yourself.”
~Miguel Don Ruiz

 

The voice of the soul is peace.  It peacefully sends us all of our emotions at all times, effortlessly.  Even though we feel dramatic and hurt and our spirits feel drained, our soul is always at peace.  The problem is we interpret the dark feelings our souls sends us as “bad,” when really they are an emotional guidance system to let us know we have a core belief that is detrimental to our self-worth.  We all long to love ourselves.  We are meant to love ourselves.  And we deserve to love ourselves, eventually, anyway.  Peace is quiet, yet it speaks the loudest in our minds about who we really are and what we really want.

 

“Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.”
~Maya Angelou

ANDREA SCHULMAN: “When Everything Changes”

kneeling-in-light

If you are consciously working at raising your vibration, it’s important to get used to change. In my experience, when we work to ascend into a higher state we’ll find that change is very, very common. In fact, sometimes EVERYTHING changes!

What kind of changes, you may ask? Well, careers, relationships, homes, towns, health, interests, hobbies, languages, whatever!

See, if you are anything like me, then everything changed when you learned about the Law of Attraction and the importance of raising your vibration. Suddenly, you understood that you had a tremendous amount of creative power, and you started to direct that power in a more positive way.

Then, what used to “work” for you, just is no longer a match to the “new” you. You’re just no longer able to hang out in the same place you used to, because you are no longer energetically compatible.

For example, if you suddenly come into the vibration of abundance, living in poverty just doesn’t work anymore. Suddenly, you find yourself moving into a place that better represents you abundance around more and more abundant people and able to do things that you never used to dream of. Sometimes this happens intentionally, but others you are literally forced into the more abundant reality.

Or, if you eliminate gossip and drama from your life, some people are either going to drop out of your life or they will change to become more positively oriented to match you. You simply can’t keep up a relationship built on negativity if you are no longer negative.

The longer I am on this journey, the more changes keep coming. This is a good thing, so if you are in a situation where things are changing rapidly-well done! There’s no greater sign of a shifting alignment than shifting changes in your life.

Stick with it! Embrace the changes, and more good ones will come your way.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Creating Your Own Reality is as Simple as Mastering 3 Universal Laws “

Art-30-700x325.jpg

I used to believe that the concept of creating your own reality was a crock of crap – until I took time to understand energy, quantum theories, and the way the universe works in collaboration with the one stream of consciousness known as the collective. Today, I have the ability to manifest goodness, but I can also manifest other things that bring me ‘lessons’. Regardless of which scenario manifested – I realize that my thoughts, words, and actions INDEED created my reality in both cases.

When it comes to words and thoughts, there are three simple ‘laws’ that govern our reality, and understanding these concepts will have you creating your own reality and seeing your needs and desires manifest before your eyes. A powerful book by Rich Work called “The Healer Within” broke these laws down very simply and they inspired my shift into the healing and manifesting paradigm. If you want a simple and effective introduction into tapping into your higher power, I recommend his read highly. Meanwhile here’s a brief overview of how you can work WITH or against the universe in creating your own reality starting TODAY!

 

#1 – The Law of Magnetic Attraction

You are a magnet for whatever you FOCUS ON…be it what you truly want or be it situations you wish you weren’t currently in. So if you want to attract love, you cannot be in the mindset of pining for it, and if you want success, you cannot find yourself filled with negative thoughts like “I’ll never get that raise.” Your thoughts and words send out vibrations into the universe, and the universe takes its cues from the resonance of the collective consciousness – which we are all a part of. Essentially, just focusing on what you want and don’t have almost ensures that you will never have it! Eliminate negative thoughts and words concerning it via the principles of Law #2.

#2 – The Law of Creative Manifestation

Einstein once said, “Thought is energy, to create it, just use your imagination.” Essentially rather than focusing intently on what you want, put your energy into creative visualization. Act and live every day as if you already HAVE what you desire, which reinforces and supports manifestation in both the physical and multi-dimensional universe. Avoid negative energies and situations that don’t reinforce your manifestation goals or desires.

#3 – The Law of Allowing

If you are truly freeing yourself to the manifestation energies of the universe, you can’t get in the middle and attempt to control the traffic or the speed in which things unfold. One doesn’t typically ask the assistance of a doctor or lawyer and then tell them how to do their job. One doesn’t typically pray and then tell God how and when to get their request fulfilled – and the universe doesn’t work that way either. In fact, the more you EXPECT, PRAY, TRY, HOPE, ASK WHEN etc. concerning your desires – the less power you give the universe to assist you via the Law of Allowing.While it can be challenging to ‘let it all go’ once your desire is put out into the collective conscious you must allow the universe the time and space to do it’s manifestation magic.

 

Knowing that you can create your own reality is empowering, and what I once believed to be impossible to attain, I now know is only limited by my own conscious and subconscious actions, thoughts, and words. What are your personal manifestation tools, tips, and success stories?

LARA STARR: “6 Spiritual Truths That Scientists Are Finally Starting to Understand”

Soul Matrix.png

For a long time, people have tried to explain why hings are the way they are. In modern times, Scientists have been trying to surpass the knowledge passed on by Priests, Prophets, Yogis and many other spiritual teachers since before we even started recording our history. Many believe Science still has a lot of catching up to do.

There are certain spiritual subjects, such as the existence of the soul, that are finally starting to get some of the attention they deserve. Let’s talk about the 6 most common.

1. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience” –Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

We may inhabit a physical body, but that is not all we truly are. We are consciousness energy. An energetic consciousness made manifest in physical form. Anyone that has studied OBE’s or Astral Projection knows full well that life is not what it seems.

There is so much more that is buried beneath the level of our consciousness that we struggle to explain because we don’t have a full scientific understanding of it yet, nor do we have an easy way to access it at will. (Intuition, deja vu, ESP, etc) But, that doesn’t mean those things aren’t real. Like any skill or physical ability, you just have to do some research and put what you’ve learned into practice to develop them.

2. Our souls never die– we just change our focus.

“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.” –Albert Einstein

Thanks to Quantum theory, Scientists are slowly catching up to the idea that we cannot truly die. Energy cannot be created and it cannot be destroyed. It can only change from one form to another.

Death (excluding spectacular deaths) isn’t instantaneous.  In fact, even in medical science it’s become more and more difficult to define when people are dead.  People ‘come back from the dead’ all the time.

There are even people who come back from the dead with knowledge, new languages and memories that they never had before the experience.

3. Everything is energy vibrating at a certain frequency.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” –Nikola Tesla

95% of the universe’s mass, Dark Matter, is currently invisible to our senses and internal instruments. These are vibrational frequencies, just like everything else that you are capable of perceiving with your senses.

You are capable of translating these frequencies to an understandable form as well. The first step is to know and accept that all mass is nothing but a vibration; nuclei with electrons orbiting around them at a rate of speed creating centripetal force. There is no such thing as solid matter. It’s just that some matter has a stronger centripetal force than others.

4. Our thoughts create our reality.

“A man is but the product of his thoughts – what he thinks, he becomes.” –Mahatma Gandhi

This basically boils down to The Law of Attraction. Thought power is the key to creating your reality. Everything you perceive in the physical world has its origin in the invisible, inner world of your thoughts and beliefs.

To become the master of your destiny, you must learn how to control the nature of your dominant, habitual thoughts – such as controlling your worries and negativity. Worrying is simply wasting time and energy manifesting things you don’t want. By controlling your thoughts, you will be able to attract the things in life you actually want.

5. Time is an illusion.

“Time is an illusion” – Albert Einstein

Einstein’s belief in an undivided solid reality was clear to him, so much so that he completely rejected the separation we experience as the moment of now. He believed there is no true division between past and future, there is rather a single existence.

His most descriptive testimony to this faith came when his lifelong friend Besso died. Einstein wrote a letter to Besso’s family, saying that although Besso had preceded him in death it was of no consequence, “…for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, albeit a convincing one.”

6. Ascension does not involve going anywhere.

Ascension is not about leaving the planet, getting rescued by off-world ETs or flying up into heaven. It is not about watching The Shift unfold online, or waiting for the external world to provide evidence of inner change.

Ascension is a conscious choice to engage in evolution. Ascension is a state of being. A focus of awareness and consciousness into a higher vibrational frequency. It is what we were created for! To “go forth and experience”, and return the experiences back to Source in an infinite loop of co-creation and mastery.

ANDREA SCHULMAN: “4 Ways To Make BETTER Affirmations”

4 Ways To Make BETTER Affirmations

by Andrea Schulman,
Guest writer, BodyMindSoulSpirit.com

Affirmations can be tricky, tricky things.

Affirmations are positive statements designed to focus our attention on having the things we want in life. Many students of the Law of Attraction use affirmations regularly to align with their goals and desires.

A well-constructed affirmation can tap you into the knowledge that all is well, and that you are capable of great things. A well-constructed affirmation can help you attract more and more of the good things you are hoping to manifest with the Law of Attraction.

A not-so-well-constructed affirmation can leave you feeling bored and uninspired, or even worse, irritated, sad or angry! A not-so-well-constructed affirmation will actually push away the things you want.

Therefore, it’s really important to construct your affirmations with care!

What makes a good affirmation?

There are a number of characteristics of a good affirmation. However, in my opinion, the most important characteristic of a good affirmation is that it feels true.

Consider the following.

You are a young woman who just got dumped and who has a bad relationship with your family. You are feeling alone and uncared for. You want to attract in new relationships that make you feel connected and loved, so you decide to practice some affirmations.

You find a few affirmations, and decide to use this one daily: “I am loved.”

Do you imagine reciting the affirmation “I am loved,” over and over is going to feel particularly true to you in this situation?

Probably not. In fact, saying “I am loved” to yourself over and over again when you are clearly NOT feeling very loved is only going to amplify the feelings of being unloved, not loved.

Whenever we feel we don’t have something we want, telling ourselves we have it is a surefire way to establish greater feelings of insecurity.

When we assert something we don’t believe we have, it makes us feel like we are lying to ourselves. It’s not a good feeling. It’s like telling a sad person to smile and be positive when he or she is sobbing uncontrollably. It just doesn’t work, and it only makes the sad person feel worse.

Telling yourself you have something you don’t really believe you have is the wrong way to use affirmations. An affirmation must feel true in order to amplify positive feelings of belief.

If your affirmations don’t feel true, modify them.

So, what do you do? If you want to attract love, are you simply supposed to avoid all kinds of affirmations about love?

No! You can still use affirmations about love, just modify them to make them feel true!

Below are six affirmation modifiers you can use to make your affirmations ring true on a more consistent basis. Consider adding modifiers to adjust your affirmations and make them more effective.

1. “I’m looking forward to…”

When there’s something you want that you don’t have yet, one thing you can affirm is your excitement to get what you want.

Adding the modifier “I’m looking forward to…” to the beginning of your affirmation allows you to focus on what you want in a positive way. It enables you to practice the feeling of positive anticipation, which feels good.

The truth is, you are looking forward to this thing you want. For this reason, this affirmation should always ring true.

For example: “I am wealthy and successful” might not feel too true when you’re living paycheck to paycheck. Instead, change this affirmation to “I’m looking forward to wealth and success.”

2. “It feels really good when I…”

Sometimes, there are things we want again that we’ve had before. In times like this, this modifier is especially useful.

This affirmation modifier allows you to remember (and therefore practice) the feeling of having something you had before in the past.

Practicing the feeling of what you had is a great way to get into better alignment with the desire to have it again. This type of modifier asserts that you’ve done it before and it allows you to feel good about something you’ve accomplished in the past.

For example: “I attract positive people and circumstances” might not feel too true when you’re having a bad day and find yourself surrounded by negativity. In a situation like this, change this affirmation to “It feels really good when I attract positive people and circumstances.”

3. “I am often/frequently…”

Similar to the previous modifier, this affirmation modification asserts that you’ve done it before. This is another great modifier to use when there’s something you’ve had before that you want to experience again.

For example: “I am appreciated” might not feel to true when you’re feeling criticized or overlooked. Instead, try “I am often/frequently appreciated.”

4. “…in many ways.”

This is a great modifier to enhance something you already have some of, but you want more of.

The nice thing about this modifier is that amplifies the knowledge of all of the many ways you already have exactly what you’re asking for. This modifier encourages you to think about and dwell on the many reasons why you are already successful at getting what you want.

For example: “I am prosperous” might feel somewhat true to you because you have a home, a car and some money in the bank. To feel especially true, and to amplify the feeling of prosperity, add the modifier by saying “I am prosperous in many ways.”

Try them out!

I hope you find good use for these affirmation modifications. Use these four modifiers liberally, and play around with them to see which ones work well for the desires you are hoping to attract!

Remember, an effective affirmation makes you feel good because it’s a positive statement that feels very honest and true. Modifiers like these can help you amplify the authenticity of your affirmations.

Do you have any other affirmation modifications you use? Feel free to comment below and share them with me!

ANDREA SCHULMAN: “Are Your Desires Really Your Desires?”

Are Your Desires REALLY Your Desires

by Andrea Schulman,
Guest writer, In5D.com

I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve been experiencing a wave of new understandings about the Law of Attraction and the process of conscious creation.

The latest? The understanding that a lot of what we “think” we want, is not really what we want at all!

I’m starting to see that many of our desires are not our true desires at all, rather they are simply our limiting beliefs disguised as our desires.

I will give two examples of this hypothesis, and you can come to your own conclusions.

Here’s the first: Do we really want money because we value money and because money makes us happy? Or do we want money because we want to have unlimited abundance, and access the ability to do, be or have anything we want?

I believe that the true desire is not money at all, but rather it is REALLY a desire to know that we are infinitely abundant, and capable of having everything we want. It is a desire to know our own unlimited power to create.

Money is actually irrelevant to this higher desire, as it is simply a condition we have placed on ourselves that often limits the way we will accept our abundance. It is also a condition we use to measure (and therefore limit) our own abundance.

In other words, when we reach for money (rather than the knowledge that we are infinitely abundant), our value as creators becomes contingent on the money in our bank accounts. Therefore, we measure our worthiness of abundance by the number of dollars we have. Regardless of how high this number may be, it is always limited.

Instead of reaching for, and accepting, signs that we are infinitely abundant, we reach for a sign that our abundance is limited. The more we believe our abundance is conditional on the money in our accounts, the more limited we feel, and the more disconnected we become from all forms of abundance (including, but not limited to, money).

What we really want is to feel worthy of our own unlimited abundance, but in order to feel worthy of our abundance, we cannot be concerned about “proving” our worthiness through the number of dollars in our accounts. We have to become more cognizant of all of the many ways we are supported in doing, being and having what we want.

In other words, money is just one way that we are abundant. It is not the end-all-be-all to abundance!

There are infinite resources out there that help us achieve the things we wish to achieve in life. The planet, our ecosystem, the help of others, the ideas we receive through the internet, and our intuition are just a handful of examples of abundant resources that assist us in creating the things we wish to create.

This isn’t to say that you can’t attract money, but if you are interested in attracting money and it isn’t coming, it might be worth exploring your beliefs about why you want it. If you only feel worthy of your abundance when the dollars are flowing, it is likely that your desire for money is simply a sign that you are reaching for the limitation of your abundance, rather than your expansion of it.

Reach for the higher desire and uncover your knowledge of your infinite abundance. The money will flow more easily, and it won’t carry the weight of limitation it once did. Even better, you will find yourself receptive to more and more forms of abundance.

Here’s the second example: Why do we want social approval? Why do we value things like “likes” on our Facebook and Instagram posts? Why do so many people crave fame?

Is it because these desires are truly reflective of what we really want? Does fame and social approval truly make our lives better? Does is really give us our true desire?

In my opinion, when someone reaches for social approval, what they are REALLY craving is unconditional love. We want others to prove their love for us so that we can prove to ourselves we are worthy of being loved.

Unfortunately, when we reach for social approval, we deny ourselves of this higher desire to be unconditionally loved. Reaching for social approval means that we are reaching for conditional love, not unconditional love.

Reaching for outside validation from others is simply another way of screaming out into the universe “I am not worthy of love as I am! I am only worthy of love when others approve of me!” Then, instead of getting our true desire (unconditional love) we only reinforce our limiting belief (that we must gain other people’s approval in order to be loved).

This pursuit ultimately makes us feel unworthy, drawing us further and further away from our true desire to be loved.

This is just something to consider. Sometimes the things we say we want, really aren’t what we want at all. Sometimes the things we are reaching for are actually pulling us further and further from our true desires.

So, if there is something you have been reaching for, and it hasn’t been coming, and it’s been making you feel bad that it hasn’t been coming, I say there MUST be a limiting belief in the equation. It is quite possible that the dream you are reaching for isn’t truly your desire, but rather it is your belief in limitation disguised as your desire.

As I mentioned earlier, when we reach for money instead of our true desire (knowledge of our unlimited abundance) we reach for signs that teach us our abundance is limited. When we reach for social approval instead of our true desire (unconditional love), we reach for signs that prove to us that we are only loved conditionally.

If there is something you want that isn’t coming to you, do yourself a favor and dig a little deeper. What do you REALLY want, and is this thing you are asking for a true reflection of this inner desire?

Truth be told, you can attract anything you want into your life with the Law of Attraction, but it is my belief that to truly experience the expansion we crave, to truly feel loved, worthy and abundant, we have to be willing to let go of the limitations that tell us we can only have these things conditionally.

This doesn’t mean you have to be poor and it doesn’t mean you have to be a loner. In fact, my point is quite the opposite. It just means in reaching beyond the dollars and beyond the “likes” you open yourself up to a much greater flow of abundance and love than you can ever achieve as long as you are chasing after limited forms of these true desires.

Reach for abundance in all forms, and let the universe show you that money is just the beginning. Reach for unconditional love, and come to learn that you can feel loved exactly as you are.

Reach a little farther, and find your true desire. I believe this is the true path to our happiness, and the true path beyond the limitations that hold us back from the things we REALLY want.

GREGG PRESCOTT: “Outside Of Love, This Is One Of The Highest Vibrational Things You Can Do!”

Outside Of Love, This Is One Of The Highest Vibrational Things You Can Do!

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.
Editor, In5D.com

Every day, we are presented numerous opportunities to do one of the highest vibrational things we can do but we often overlook or forget to do so.

Outside of love, gratitude has one of the highest vibrations because when we show gratitude, we selflessly give it to others, or we graciously acknowledge what others have done for us.

For example, I use the Law of Attraction to get one of the best parking spots at the beach. At the beach where I go to, there are only 25 parking spots or so, but I KNOW the best spot will be waiting for me.  When I pull into that spot, usually the one closest to the beach (or one of the two next to it), I always say, “Thank you, Universe!”

One time, I went to the beach for the sunset and the only spot available was the one furthest away from the beach.  I didn’t understand why I got that spot until I left.  This particular parking spot has one lane and you need to turn around at the end of the parking to in order to get out.  By getting the last spot, all I needed to do was back out.  Thank you, Universe!

When I go the the beach, I do a “Walk of Gratitude“.  There is a sea wall at the end of the beach which serves as a reminder to show gratitude for all that is good in life.

I begin by showing gratitude to:

  • Creator
  • Source
  • Universe
  • Spirit guides
  • Guardian angels
  • Friends & family on both sides of the veil
  • Galactic neighbors & friends
  • Higher self
  • Mother Earth

I call the above group my “posse”.

I use Ho’oponopono by addressing my posse by saying:

  • I’m sorry
  • Please forgive me
  • Thank you
  • I love you

I then ask my posse to help me turn on all of the codons in my DNA so I can heal myself and others in humanity’s best interests.  We only have 22 of the 64 codons in our DNA turned on, so hypothetically, if we can figure out how to turn on ALL of the codons in our DNA, we could do ANYTHING!.  I talked about this in my presentation at the 2016 Superpower Activation Conference here in Sarasota:

Right now, more than ever, it’s very important to keep your vibrations high and one of the easiest ways to do so is through gratitude!

GREGG PRESCOTT: “6 Ways To Access Higher Consciousness”

6 Ways To Access Higher Consciousness

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.
Editor, In5D.com

Would you like to access higher states of consciousness? The following are 6 ways you can do this!

6 Ways To Access Higher Consciousness

1. Discernment. Discernment involves using your cognitive abilities by questioning EVERYTHING! When you do so, you begin your spiritual journey by seeking answers through truth.

2. Intuition. Similar to discernment, intuition is basically using your gut feelings to guide you.

3. Opening your 3rd eye. Your 3rd eye will show you things that were previously inaccessible to you. I give a tutorial on how to do this in the article, “Do THIS Right Before You Go To Sleep To Open Your 3rd Eye!“.

4. Meditate. Meditation helps to bring your mind into the alpha state where you can easily tap into higher states of consciousness.

5. Use the Law of Attraction. Try asking the universe for ideas and suggestions on what your direction should be… or any other question you may have. The key is to LISTEN and to OBSERVE what is shown to you, as you are always being guided toward your life purpose.

6. Ask your spirit guides and guardian angels. Your spirit guides and guardian angels are there for you, 24/7/365 but they cannot act without you first asking them to do so, due to the Law of Free Will. Of course, they can gently guide you by giving you symbols such as a feather appearing out of nowhere to let you know they’re there for you, but you have to ASK them for help if you need it!

4 Tips in preparing yourself to access higher states of consciousness

1. Ground yourself. Staying grounded is a great way to prepare yourself for higher states of consciousness. Try going for a walk (barefooted, preferably) and connecting with nature. Similar to #4 (Meditation) you may be able to connect with nature to reach higher states of consciousness.

2. Live in the heart. Stay heart-centered as much as possible, thus keeping the lines of communication open between you and higher consciousness.

3. Ho’oponopono. With feeling behind it, say Please forgive me, I’m sorry, thank you, and I love you at any given time throughout the day. The Universe LOVES gratitude!

4.Turn off the TV! The biggest deterrent to accessing higher consciousness is watching television or low vibrational movies that feature horror or the killing of someone.

Deciding to live in higher states of consciousness is a full-time job. Take it seriously, yet have fun with it. As you change, the world changes around you.
