The SERCET to experiencing MIRACLES as an everyday occurrence is solely reliant on understanding ONE factor….are you ready for it?
Okay, fasten your safety belt, hold on to your hat, the train is about to leave the station………..
The secret to experiencing miracles are……….FOCUS!!!!
You must focus my child 😉
Why? ……. BECAUSE!!!!!
Where your focus goes, your attention flows, where attention goes, energy flows.
Where energy flows; substance manifest. Good or bad….your choice
The greatest of all Spiritual Laws are the Law of Choice.
“I hold before you blessings or curses, life or death, you choose” Deuteronomy 30:19
The problem with humanity is that we mostly focus on the things we don’t want and therefore we get …. More of the things the we ….don’t want
Like I explained in yesterday’s newsletter, most people are driven by their memories of past experiences.
Therefore you don’t have a:
- Lack problem, you have a memory replaying problem
- Health problem, you have a memory replaying problem
- Weight problem, you have a memory replaying problem
- Relationship problem, you have a memory replaying problem
- And so forth
The key is to let go of your past!!!!
I’ll share a “releasing the past” technique with you at the end of this post, don’t skip to it now without reading the rest of the post, you will the miss the real value behind it if you do.
This is a bit of a “monster” (long) post, so kick of your shoes have a cuppa, my promise to you… it will definitely be worth your while ‘-)
We are all Enlightened Beings in disguise. Every being is born with full access to the highest peak of truth, love and consciousness. If you look into a baby’s eyes you will see it.
The sparkle of their pure uncluttered untainted awareness is blazing there. You can see that there is no sense of time, rigid beliefs, or systems of controlling the world in their mind.
There is just pure presence and awareness. They are a naturally in love with life, without even trying their Enlightened Nature shines through. This consciousness is in all of us for at one time we were all once a baby.
“All beings are from the very beginning Buddhas.” ~ Hakuin
If our Enlightened Nature is already here now, complete and whole in itself, why isn’t the entire world filled with an abundance of Enlightened Beings? There is one little thing in the way called the “ego”.
The mind gets identified with certain desires, thinking it HAS to have these things in order to be happy. The attachment to desire gets in the way and obscures this light of pure being.
When there is too much attachment or resistance to anything in life, it causes the mind to malfunction and lose contact with its naturally enlightened perspective on reality. What it needs is to relax; rest and wait for the clarity to come pouring through.
The unenlightened mind is a lot like a fish in a fishbowl who is anxiously swimming around in circles, causing the water to spin and all the muck on the bottom to be stirred up distorting the clarity of the water.
When the fish stops swimming and rests, it takes a while yet soon the muck settles back to the bottom of the bowl and the water becomes crystal clear. If your health, relationships, money, work or love life seems to be spinning around in muck, you simply need to stop all movement, relax the mind and rest deep inside yourself again.
In time your issue will resolve itself as the light of your own consciousness will clarify everything for you.
By bringing the mind to a complete halt, the illusions of your mind disappear and you naturally experience the infinite source inside you. Being still is the greatest secret to discovering Enlightenment.
When you are completely calm, still and un-moving, your mind becomes crystal clear.
You can only experience the loving, eternal, and divine aspects of your infinite Enlightened Nature. The heart opens and an unconditional love for all beings (including yourself) naturally begins pouring through you. When the mind is uncluttered you can see the divine truth of who and what you truly are.
“I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.” ~Chang Tzu
The very instant you are empty of mind chatter, you can stop and take a good long look inside yourself. You can explore yourself, investigate your past, look into what you want to manifest in your future, and discover something quite amazing about your very nature.
You realize that you are not this body, nor these thoughts, or anything you can imagine with your mind. Who you really are goes beyond thinking, beyond concepts, and beyond the mind. You are an infinite and eternal soul that cannot be burned by fire or wet by water. You are this forever expanding consciousness that cannot be defined.
When you are in a state of pure being, completely free from the mind, you instantly start connecting with your inherent Enlightened Nature. Suddenly, as if from out of nowhere, your true radiant self with all its positive life expanding qualities finds its way into your life.
Your relationships become fun, easy and effortless and you think about what amazing gifts you have inside you to give back to the community. The most simple blissful joyful sensations are naturally experienced in the most ordinary situations.
By being silent quiet and still, you discover that you are ALREADY deeply connected to an Infinite source of goodness within.
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.” Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Every morning for the next week of your life I invite you to explore one thing. The very instant that you’ve awakened from your sleep, before you move your body or open your eyes, take these precious moments to turn your attention inwards and ask this one question.
Where is the source of thought coming from?
The question itself is the purpose of the exercise, it’s not necessary to find an answer. Just keep pointing your attention in the direction of where you feel or think the source of thought is coming from. Directing your intention inside yourself is the key to opening the great door to the beyond.
Before you wake up, just take a look inside you. Look deeper inside yourself before your mind starts to think about its agenda for the day. Simply investigate where the Source of thought is coming from, and if you can feel into it, relax into it and rest in the core of it.
This way you’ll tend to return to this place all throughout your day. Bring your whole heart and soul into this enquiry and if you get stuck then simply remain curious. Do not try to get anywhere, just remain in a state of curiosity and see what happens!
When you do this the “releasing your past” exercise become much easier. If you don’t your ego will fight you every inch of the way to keep you locked in the past!!
There is a hidden force behind your mind running this grand master show. This indivisible divine energy is very powerful when you connect with it, and when you find it you’ll be able to shape shift your life in any way you’d like it to be.
“Expect your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level, and expect to grow spiritually. You are not living by human laws. Expect miracles and see them take place. Hold ever before you the thought of prosperity and abundance, and know that doing so sets in motion forces that will bring it into being.” ~Eileen Caddy
LET GO!!! “Releasing the past technique”.
At some point in your life, you have to simply let go of the past…whether it’s letting go of a job where you feel like you’re dying a slow death, a business that no longer brings you any kind of fulfilment, a relationship that was really over years ago, or an expensive piece of jewellery that was given to you by your former mother-in-law.
When you let go, you create space for something infinitely better to come into your life.
So why is it that we make the mistake of holding on?
There is only one reason: fear.
We think to ourselves things like…
“What if I let go of this job and then the management change happens that turns this company into a wonderful place to work?”
“I know I hate this business but at least I have a roof over my head.”
“What if ……….
Really? Is that how you want to live your life?
You hold on out of fear that there won’t be something to take the place of what you have now.
I’m here to tell you that there will be something. And you know what that something is?
In order to allow miracles into your life, you have to make space for them by letting go of what no longer serves you. You have to clear the clutter.
What we’ve found is that the way to start the energy moving is to get rid of the physical clutter.
Once that physical stuff starts to move, letting go of the bigger things like stale relationships becomes infinitely easier.
When we release the old energy, it makes space for the new.
When we let go of the old, we’re basically saying to the Universe (God), “I know you have my back, so I’m going to let go and trust that there’s something better on its way for me.”
Everything we own carries an energy with it. It’s amazing how letting go of something as seemingly innocuous as old pots and pans can help start the momentum that allows us to get a whole new kitchen, or house, or partner!
In order to “clear the decks” and open ourselves to a miraculous future, I use a simple feng shui ritual based on letting go.
If you’re really ready to start this momentum going and you want a fresh start in any area of your life, I invite you to try this:
“Each day, for nine days in a row give away, throw away, or somehow eliminate something in your home or office 27 items, that’s right, 27 items a day for nine days…..”
These items can be clothes that have been in your closet for years in case you get back to a size 4, dishes that have big chips in them, spoons that have been eaten up by the garbage disposal, knickknacks that you don’t even like that sit around accumulating dust—whatever no longer serves you and you don’t want to carry into the future.
Here are some guidelines:
Once you start, you have to let go of at least 27 items a day.
If you skip a day you have to start over with day 1 because the energy is cumulative.
If you’re not sure about an item, hold it to your heart and ask if you want to bring the energy of the item into your future. Ask, “Does it represent the ‘me’ as I see my ideal self in the future?”
Get rid of books, tapes, and CD’s with messages that no longer speak to you.
Get rid of outdated food or vitamins, and dispose of old medicines that may remind you of a previous illness (it’s not a great idea to hold on to these just in case the illness comes back!).
Throw away items in your kitchen that are cracked or unusable. Get rid of broken appliances that you know you’ll never get fixed. It’s usually cheaper to get a new one anyway.
Throw away items in your office like dried-up markers, broken pens, expired passports, and old magazines you’ll never read.
Give away anything that holds an unpleasant memory or binds you to the past that is never coming back.
As you let go, thank the item warmly for its previous usefulness, and then say goodbye to it with gratitude in your heart. This makes the process joyful and deeply fulfilling.
After the nine days are over, take one final look around and see if what’s left represents who you are now and who you intend to be in the future.
It’s a law of physics that “Nature abhors a vacuum.” In other words, Nature doesn’t like it when things are empty! So when you create space, the Universe rushes in to fill it up. This is why when you release old relationships that no longer work, new and more wonderful ones have space to come in.
When you let go of old resentments, more loving energy can enter. When you let go of the items throughout your home that carry old energy, more appropriate things will come in.
You’ll also notice a much greater ease when letting go of old ideas, feelings, positions, relationships, or anything that no longer serves you…and you’ll also notice that miracles will fill those empty spaces faster than you can say,
“I love living a life filled with MIRACLES.”
Okay, that’s it for now…… of you go and do your “letting go of the past” experiment 😉
