SUSAN VIVYAN: “Thoughts And Words Are So Important”

Watch your words carefully as they carry more power than you realize.  Many are becoming aware of the power of thoughts, words and are more discerning in their choices.  Yes, it is a choice moment by moment.  More immediate results than you realize.

It is via stillness, meditation, concentration, awareness that you become aware of the power of your thoughts; words leading to actions.  When one is the observer in the 3rd person and not immersed in the drama of their own making a wiser perspective emerges.  Greater understanding with more discernment guides daily choices.  The inner reflects the outer and more discretionary decisions are made.

One can still be very present, live in the moment; however, the focus of an aware life is more refined like sand which slowly and gently flows through your fingers with little abrasive quality.

Listen to the words of others but more importantly discern your own thoughts and words.  Become a detached observer with no judgment or criticism.  Allow corrections to your thought patterns and/or actions to be done with gentleness and softness.

Treat yourself with respect.  Embrace your imperfections.  Allow growth to emerge with constant nurturing and self-love.  Focus on your thoughts, your words.  Refine your choices.

You are important!

THERESA DUVAUCHELLE: “8 Simple Steps To Manifest Anything You Want”

“It is time to start dreaming big.  It is time for you to manifest the life you have always wanted to live. There is nothing holding you back you are a creator and this is what you came here to do.  You had to be a master at manifesting before you incarnated and it is time for you to remember who you are and how to attain the life you want to live to be the example you set out to be.”

~Theresa Duvauchelle

 

If you knew how powerful your thoughts were you would never think a negative thought again.  Most people get caught up in their thoughts and are unable to attain the life that they desire.  The day to day things just get in the way more and more and you are frustrated to no end.  The more you think about the bills and not having enough money the more bills you acquire.  You pray for the madness to stop but it keeps coming full force.

Did you know that your thoughts are creating your future?

Did you know the thought waves you are sending out are actually asking for more of what you do not want?

The universe does not know the difference between wanting and not wanting.

The universe feels if you are giving thought it is something you want and grants your every wish.

Today, I am going to show you 8 ways that you can manifest the life you have dreamed of.

1. Gratitude

Show gratitude for everything and everyone you have in your life.  Gratitude is one one the things we often leave out and it is one of the most important steps in manifestation.  So if you are thinking I do not like where I live and try to manifest from there you will be going the wrong direction and just getting more of what you do not want.  When you show gratitude for the things you already have it opens the door for more to come through.

2. Visualize

You need to visualize what you wish to manifest, what you long for.  Your thoughts and visions have a creative force behind them so it is important to envision a clear picture of what you are desiring to attract into your life.  Be specific.  The universe is waiting for you to create so it can bring into existence exactly what aspire to have.  When you are visualizing make sure you are in the now like it has already happened. This is a very important step!

3. Vibration

Your vibration is what sets the tone for manifestation.  Like attracts like.  If you are vibrating high you are emitting love, happiness and fulfillment. If you are vibrating low you are emitting anger, sadness and despair.  So we always need to be mindful of the energy we are carrying from moment to moment.  We want to vibrate high and feel the energy in our stomach as it rises to our heart as we pulsate the energy.  Feel it, be it!

4. Eliminate

Get rid of what no longer serves you.  It is difficult to manifest something new when you are hanging onto the old.  We want to move into the present and leave the past behind.

5. Affirmations

When you affirm something you are actually acknowledging it to be authentic.  With repeating affirmations you are setting an intention for the universe to fulfill your wish.  Daily repetition affords that you are purposefully creating your future.  Some examples of affirmations are as follows.

 

I am open to receive abundance from the universe

I manifest my deepest desires daily

My dreams are coming to fruition

I am raising my vibration daily and manifesting what I desire

I am the creator of my experience

Everyday I am moving towards my goals
I am confident and successful

 

These are just a few examples to get you started.

 

6. No Doubt

You want to release any fears or the thought that you cannot have what you are yearning for.  Believe that you can have anything your heart desires without a doubt.  It is so much easier to swim with the current rather than swimming upstream.  In order to achieve this you need stop thinking analytically and start feeling with your heart.

7. Receive

Ask and you shall receive.  Be open to receive and make sure it is what you want.  Know that you are deserving to receive.  This will open the door to abundance and allow you to manifest quickly with ease.

8. Dream

It is time to start dreaming big. It is time for you to manifest the life you have always wanted to live.  There is nothing holding you back you are a creator and this is what you came here to do.  You had to be a master at manifesting before you incarnated and it is time for you to remember who you are and how to attain the life you want to live to be the example you set out to be.

If you follow these eight easy steps, you should be well on your way to manifesting anything you want.  The power is in your hands and it is time to create.  Have fun and live!

Blessings.

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.

CREATOR COURSE: “The Power Of Thought”

power-of-thoughts

You are responsible for everything you have brought into your life, everything you have left out of your life, and everything that you are currently intending to bring into your life.  Every single relationship, association, difficulty, failure, fear, plan, hope, and success is in your control no matter whether you have been guided there consciously or subconsciously.  Every mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual state of being that you are experiencing right now is completely under your power.  If you think not, then you are giving away your innate power to others.  Everything in your life that I have just spoken about above originated, originates, and will originate from one matter — thought.

Your thoughts harness all your power and you wield this power through your thinking.  What you think about is up to you.  Thoughts trigger every word that comes out of your mouth, every action you go forward with, and every habit you form.  In turn, these self-expressions shape and mold your character and as we all know it, your character determines the destiny that guides you.  Thoughts actually emanate and radiate energy to and from your body.  They directly influence the physical, mental, emotional, social, sexual, and spiritual effort your body, mind, and spirit is willing to produce.  Since your thoughts directly correlate to the frequency of your vibrational being, be mindful of what you express — remember love is that of a high vibration and fear is that of a low one.  Each thought you create sends a vibration through your being and out into the universe.

At their most basic purpose, thoughts are how you creatively express your individuality.  Nurture your thoughts and take intense care after what you feed to your mentality.  Be mindful of what you mentally create as it has a majority of the effect in what you intend and create within your reality.

 

You form about 60,000 thoughts every single day and about 95% of those thoughts get exactly recreated the following day.  That 95%, as you could have guessed, is subconsciously created.  Make sure that those thoughts are what you consciously intend to create within your reality.

If you are unsure how powerful your thoughts and intentions really are, then let me explain to you the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto.  He gathered distilled water and blessed the specimens with a simple thought or intention as well as labeled others with words such as love or gratitude.  He froze the droplet samples and then placed them under a microscope to astonishingly find beautiful crystals react and reflect the initial thought or intention.  The crystals bore symmetrical and hexagonal snowflakes that all remained unique to one another.  It is interesting to think if this is how thoughts affected water, suppose how powerful they could affect you.

CHRISTIE SHELDON: “How Negative Energy Affects Your Life and How to Clear It”

meditation-3

“Consider this: since when does ‘being realistic’ necessarily mean that things will go wrong and that you have to accept that as the truth?”

~Christie Sheldon

 

You know that like attracts like, right? So here’s the deal: Positive people are drawn to positive energy; negative people are drawn to negative energy.

We tend to perceive negative energy as something other people have. Sure, sometimes we feel negative – as in, “go away and leave me alone, world!” but did you know that negativity can be so ingrained in you that it goes unnoticed?

That’s because negativity sometimes wears a disguise called ‘reality’. It’s easy to rationalize that you’re ‘just being realistic’ in not daring to act on a dream – and believe it!

You may assume that positive people are not being realistic – that they’re being naive, that they are in denial with their heads stuck in the sand, that they put on fake smiles in the face of difficulty and so forth.  But are they really happy idiots or is there something to their positivity?

Consider this: since when does ‘being realistic’ necessarily mean that things will go wrong and that you have to accept that as the truth?

That doesn’t mean that being realistic is automatically negative. When you view the world from a ‘realistic’ standpoint, you can’t help but be negative IF your version of reality is negative.

If your version of reality is negative, you are conditioned to believe that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong and whatever can go right, will probably go wrong too. Your unconsciously held beliefs make you into a negative person without your being aware of it!

So – if this negativity is so ingrained in you that you don’t notice it, how do you determine whether you’re stuck in a cloud of negative energy that is attracting the wrong people, wrong situations and wrong feelings? And how can you be sure you’re not perpetuating that negativity?

Here’s a quick quiz to gauge the level of negative energy within you:

  • Do you complain? All the time or just sometimes?
  • Do you often discuss what’s wrong in the world more than what’s right? This includes the ‘terrible’ weather, ‘horrible’ traffic, ‘idiotic’ government, ‘lousy’ economy, ‘stupid’ in-laws, etc.
  • Do you criticize? All the time or just certain people?
  • Are you attracted to drama and disaster (can you unglue yourself from the TV when there’s a news story of a disaster and can you avoid getting involved in the lives of dysfunctional celebrities?)
  • Do you blame? All the time or just certain situations?
  • Do you believe that you have no control over most of your results?
  • Do you feel like a victim? Do you talk about people doing things to you?
  • Are you grateful for what is or will you be grateful when things finally start going right for you?
  • Do you feel like things are happening to you? Or do you feel that they are happening through you?

This last two points are important:

If you’re not grateful except when things go right, you are negative. Gratitude is positive. If you are grateful for what is (including the unpleasant school of life lessons, then you can invite more and more positive energy into your life.

Believing that things happen to you puts you in the role of victim; then it’s easy to be negative because it’s convenient to give up that power. So consider this alternative: who or what is to blame when GOOD things happen to you? Do you acknowledge that you are responsible for the good things – as in, you worked hard, you earned it, etc… but blame external events or other people for your failures? So how come, when good things happen, they are a result of what you do, but when bad things happen, they are not your fault?

Nobody likes to hear that. It takes courage to accept that you create your life experience!

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are holding on to negative energy to some degree! To clear your negative energy and raise your vibration, you will need to retrain yourself to choose a positive attitude.

Here’s another interesting idea to consider: have you noticed that positive people seem to get what they want out of life, and even if things don’t go their way, they still enjoy their lives… while negative people whine and moan about their misfortunes and even the good things in their lives?

To clear negative energy, try this 3 -step process

1. Take ownership: “When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.” – the Dalai Lama

2. Cancel negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts. This takes practice, dedication and making a decision to see the world through the eyes of “what can go right” instead of “what can go wrong.” You’ll have to catch yourself anytime you are acting out or speaking out your negativity, and immediately change your tune.

3. Use the Love or Above Spiritual Toolkit to clear your energy and bring more light and love into your life;  visualize the positive instead of getting sucked into negativity; overcome past conditioning; think intuitively from the soul instead from ‘reality’; create a new, desired reality in your imagination and manifest it in the outer world. Nobody wants negative energy to permeate their lives, yet many of us allow it. But we allow it unconsciously, based on past conditioning that suggests an inevitable outcome to certain situations. When you overcome that conditioning and realize that the future is NOT cast in stone but that you have more control over your circumstances than you believe – then you can begin to consciously design your life.

What’s going to happen then? Your positive energy will magnetically attract what you consider to be good and right for you: people, situations, things… and you’ll notice a huge, huge increase in your happiness and inner peace.

Why not choose positive energy? Make some changes within, and you’ll quickly see positive changes in your life. Enjoy the good feelings and abundance!
