We had another amazing “Beyond Limits” class last night! This is a 10 week class that investigates how we think our reality into existence. The information we’re studying has been around for thousands of years, and more recently has been named “New Thought.” If you’ve ever heard of, read or seen Michael Beckwith, John Randolph Price or Ernest Holmes, these are all “New Thought” leaders.
Well last nights class was focusing on ‘abundance’…great subject right?
We also discussed that a person must have a ‘mental equivalent’ of that they wish to manifest. So, let me ask you….what does abundance mean and look like to you?
If you’re like most individuals words like, ‘freedom’, ‘money’, ‘happiness’, ‘health’, ‘safety’, ‘peace’ and ‘love’ come to mind, right?
But, if we must have a mental equivalent of what we want to create then what does ‘freedom’, ‘money’, ‘happiness’, ‘health’, ‘safety’, ‘peace’ and ‘love’ look like to you? After describing that, ask the same question again and again and again until you have a crystal clear mental equivalent of how you see, feel, hear, smell and taste ‘abundance.’
You see, these words we use to describe ‘abundance’ sound good, but if you can’t create a mental equivalent (full sensory), it can be extremely difficult to manifest.
Important – What ever you desire to create you must a full sensory mental equivalent.
This is based on the fact that for every visible form, there is an invisible counterpart. Everything in Nature tends to equalize itself, to keep its balance true. This is the reciprocal Universe.
We demonstrate the reciprocal nature of the Universe in the laws of attraction, giving and receiving, mental equivalents and being, doing, done by, and other similar principles.
However, if there is no room in which to hold the mental equivalent how can we expect to create what we desire?
What do I mean by “no room”?
Well, if you constantly have thoughts of lack, violence, scarcity, disease and your mind is filled with worry, fear, doubt, anger and sadness, how can there be any room for abundance, health, joy and peace?
You cannot hold two thoughts at the same time.
The question now is – what can you let go of to make room for the abundance you desire? This is a tougher question then it appears. For so many of us our mental chatter is about WHO we are. If we let this go…who will we be?
This is a frightening thought to the ego. After all, you’ve survived just fine up to now, why upset the apple cart?
In order for you to create your personal success and abundance you must release those unsupportive thoughts that are taking up space. Think of this a spring cleaning for the mind.
Go around from mental room to mental room taking inventory of your mental “stuff.” Then ask, “Does this support me in living the life of my dreams?” If not, get the vacuum, dust pan, carpet cleaner and go at it! Take all the mind clutter and recycle and transform it into supportive and empowering thoughts and beliefs that will assist you in your journey to personal success.
There are a number of great “cleaning” tools that can help with this process. One is affirmations. I know that this is a subject like religion and politics to some. The bottom line is, if what you’re doing isn’t working….do ANYTHING else and affirmations are a great place to start.
They do take some focused concentration to master though. You see affirmations are so much more then just repeating something over and over again…that you don’t believe is true. Affirmations are affirming something that IS true…a declaration of fact. This is though part.
You need to feel connected with and part of the Universe….the Universe that has All.
In last weeks post I talked about “What is your good?” You can also think of this as “What makes you come alive?” There is at least ONE thing in this world that really, really, really gets you deep inside. Just the simple thought of it creates a wonderful feeling inside you. You know the one I mean right? Yes!!! That one!
When you use affirmations you must first tap into that energy of “what makes you come alive”, then when you are in that space, speak your affirmations while holding the mental equivalent.
The Universe responds to energy not words. Words are for us, the Universe doesn’t have any ears…it is made up of pure energy. So, when we release into the Universe the energy of abundance and health, the reciprocal Universe must balance this out…so we then manifest it in our lives.
I will say that, mental spring cleaning, affirmation, what is you good? … etc does take considerable mental strength and just like going to the gym, it takes practice and repetition to get good at it.
Think of it like this….you wouldn’t go to the gym once a month and expect results would you? So, how can you expect results by saying an affirmation for a day? You have to become an expert at it.
I read somewhere that to be classified as an “expert” you need over 10,000 hours in a specific field or area of interest.
We’re talking about your life here! What could be more of interest to you then that? 10,000 hours is only a little over 3 years. Hey…those 3 years are going to go by whether you become and expert of not, mine as well become an expert, and create an amazing life in the mean time
Another great thing about affirmations is they are a doorway to your beliefs. When you say an affirmation, pay attention to the echo that comes back. This is head of a belief rearing its head. For instance, you say an affirmation that “I am thin, fit and healthy.” And you’re echo says’ “Yea right! All you do is eat junk food…your just big boned….everyone in your family was large, it’s not my fault.” These are all tips of unsupportive icebergs.
Pay attention to them, write then down and then work with a coach to get the heart of the belief. Sometimes just simply observing the echo and ask, “Is this really true?” the belief will evaporate.
I hope you got at least on nugget from this post today. If you did…or if you didn’t I’d like to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
Oh yea…speaking of affirmations…I just released a new hypnotic affirmation audio “Program Your Mind for Money and Wealth” I know you’ll find it very helpful. Take look for yourself at Program Your Mind for Money and Wealth”
