YOUR SOUL CREATES AN ELEGANT OUTCOME, EVERYTIME – PART 2

What hurts us most in life is falling out of harmonious action with our Soul – that was the message of my article last week. This week I continue with this message showing HOW you can create a dynamic responsive relationship with your Soul. This is where the rubber meets the road people!

Foundations for living in harmony with your Soul day in, day out
1. Write a goal to have a dynamic listening relationship with your body-mind. (Soul messages come through the body-mind, not the mind-mind)

2. Honour the intelligence of the body-mind – even light a candle each day to do this.

3. Acknowledge and rely on the body-mind’s ability to receive divine intelligence, like a river of divine knowledge, about your destiny and your life.

To apply these 3 points, do the following:
1. Exercise your body regularly, even a mild walk each day is enough.

2. Meditate at least 5 times per week. You don’t have to be in a trance for an hour. Surprise surprise, 3 minutes a day is enough (for details on what to do in those 3 minutes CLICK HERE

However, if you want to spend more time meditating, an excitingly transformative meditation approach is one which does not ask you to visualise, think or work with your mind/thought in any way. Instead you move your body in a certain way to align to your Soul Source – this could be to move air into your lungs, move your vocal cords to chant, and even move your legs to step in certain ways. (Suggestions below).

3. Turn off your cell, sit in the garden/sun/fire and spend time with your thoughts and feelings. Be alone. Get to know yourself each day.

THE ONE BIG THING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO ATTRACT YOUR IDEAL LIFE

The heart is the manifesting organ, not mind-power, not hard work. The heart.

When your heart is open, you are a beacon, guiding the things you want to safely land in your world

When your heart is closed, you are a chaser, repelling your hearts desires. Bummer….

The fact is, that our hearts open and close a ga-zillion times a day, so just what can we do to keep it more open, more often?  That is the nub, the centre point, the alpha and omega of manifestation.

The heart more than you ever dreamed it to be. The Bible says ‘as a man thinketh in his heart so is he’. Since scientists have now discovered that the heart comprises more neural (brain) cells than muscle cells it seems that these ancient writings knew something long before we did! The heart has an electro magnetic field 500 times bigger than that of the brain. It’s potent. It’s the place where the body-mind meet in potency.

The valve that opens and closes your energies like the attachment at the end of a hose, is controlled by your subconscious and expressed by your heart

Generally this process operates below your consciousness but by tuning into your body you can feel its mode – i.e. when it’s open (YES) or closed (NO). These are two states that you need to tune into in and become intimately acquainted with in order to turn ON your DELIBERATE manifesting power. Awareness of the sensations of the body and your feelings is the pathway to this awareness.

  1. First you need to establish an active and loving relationship with your body. And I have a great exercise to do this – simply, easily, effectively. Let me know if you would like the info
  2. Love your goals. In astrological terms the planet Venus, the planet of love, is also the planet of money! You need not only to love yourself and life, but love your goals – having an open and trusting heart towards them. Heart break, closing your heart or simply insisting on living completely in the realm of logic and intellect, close the heart like closing off the tap. The body can shift your stuckness without your mind’s help. Intellect jams the process.  Intellect’s role is to define and focus on what the heart has chosen.

‘Unaided by the Spirit-breath, the work of intellection tends to solve the problems

of the things we see, and nothing more’ Aquarian Gospel

You need to love what you wish to bring into material existence. If you want more money, set out to create a loving, nurturing and respectful relationship with money. If you want a lover, new house, better job, love the idea and every aspect of the desire. If it’s not in your world now you do not fully and open heartedly and unreservedly love it. But this can be changed by the ideas and these practices.   Trust me. I have designed, tested and proven that they work.

Choosing to open your heart is the art of deliberate manifestation, and to be an effective DELIBERATE manifester, you must make it a daily, all the time, practise. An open heart turns the attractor switch to the ON position. This is the practise of deliberate manifestation.

How to deal with ANYTHING that comes your way

 When my two girls were old enough I drove them down to spend a week with my Mom at the coast.  When we arrived, the children immediately wanted to go to the beach.  I was tired and preoccupied with business matters, but I agreed and off we went. 
 
When we arrived I noticed that the beach had been dramatically changed by a spring tide and now sloped steeply down toward the sea.  My mind was so full of other things it didn’t occur to me that the only wave breaking on this now steep slope was rather dangerous. The truth is that my body was at the beach, but my mind was elsewhere. I was not present! This was soon to change…
 
As I went into the water, I was thrown down into the churning sand, spluttering and gasping for air – I was completely powerless. I had one thought only – keeping alive, surviving the huge wave descending on me. As the water subsided and gave me a chance to rise to my feet I experienced the most unexpected exhilaration and joy. The wave had become my NOW. My children, stunned by the sight of their Mom disappearing under a wall of water were relieved to see me stand up. They were surprised as I let out a shout (of joy) and charged up the beach toward them! I was changed. I was there! I had experienced a total experience of the NOW, and it was amazing.
 
It was a brilliant gift, for I had experienced that moment with all my being.  Every sense, every muscle, every thought had focused on that moment. In doing that I experienced a remarkable sense of aliveness. And so my one-minute swim became a lifetime’s lesson.  Jerry Jampolsky says this about being in the NOW:
‘It is very easy to lapse into the past or build up anxiety about the future.  When we do this, we are often not peaceful.  When we recognize this, we can focus our attention back to the present where it is possible to experience peace. If we stay in the present, we are best able to deal with anything that comes our way.  If we are someplace else, it is not possible to make decisions.  In essence, NOW is the only time there is.  It is in the NOW that the love energy comes through us.  It is in the NOW that we are not judgmental and we can see clearly what is going on….We cannot control the external world.  We will never be peaceful if we try to do so.’
We really start LIVING when we get into the present, the now, fear and all! (Notice the word fear here.) Fear of experiencing fear causes us to suppress fear in our daily life. That action not only steals energy and shuts us down, but separates us from ourselves. 
‘When negative feelings are suppressed positive feelings become suppressed as well, and love dies.’                John Gray
The present moment is like a river of feelings and experiences, moving, changing and passing. If we can be brave enough to feel all this flow, we come alive. The present moment and flow are actually one and the same thing. Right action comes from the flow of life. 
 
You are being led to your perfect life through the subtle feelings and urges, sometimes called ‘good’  sometimes ‘bad’, flowing into your body-mind all the time. These feelings and impulses show you, or invite you, or urge you to do something.  It is that ‘something’ that is the right action, and it can only be experienced when you are in the now. 
 
Your perfect life, the perfect decisions, the perfect experience is emerging moment by moment. 
 
All you need to know is contained in this moment. To deal with ANYTHING, become fully present, and then choose.

Is GOD’S hand on your business and life?

In her closing remarks in her very last (and large) show, Oprah said that God’s hand had been on her business, implying that her incredible success was due to that. That comment really stuck with me.

I started to ask myself, if her comment is true, what about those who try to live God-connected lives, who work hard and smart, but never achieve anywhere near Oprah’s success?  Does that mean that God’s hand is NOT on their business? Does that mean that they will bust their gut, do their best, pour their talents, time and heart out, but that big ol’ hand will still be anywhere but hovering over them?

To be honest, asking myself this question has brought up stuff for me. I feel confused and sad. If my business is not a runaway success like Oprah, (even a mini version would do, er God…?) does that mean that God’s hand is withheld for some reason?  And if so, what is the reason?

The implications are vast. Would God not put a hand on your business because of who you are? Or would it be conditional on you doing certain things in certain ways? Or does God prefer certain businesses to others? Or are the churches right, you need to repent your sins in order to receive the hand?  Or does one person’s life path have the hand and the other not, simply by some esoteric new agey choice made at the beginning of this life?

Or maybe I am greedy, and the mere wanting a big hand makes sure all I get is a small hand? On the other hand, (there seem to be lots hands in this article) if Gods hand is the success factor in business, does it mean if a business is successful, that God’s hand is on it?   Then I get to ask: what about massively wealthy empires built on crime, destruction and anything but Godly behaviour?  I find it difficult to even consider that the big ol’ hand is on those businesses!

Searching for the answers to the big ol’ hand is feeling like a punch in the stomach at the moment, and I can’t help noticing how upset I feel as I consider that God’s hand might not be present on my business  and life affairs –  or that maybe Oprah got the whole hand and I will only ever the baby finger tip.

The truth is that I could write a book on the ways I have experienced God in my life and my business. From a being of light appearing to me in my sleep telling me about a new business venture to hearing dictation as I wrote a new book, surely these are examples of God’s hand on my life? But since I am not that Oprah runaway success, does this mean that God’s hand only sweeps fleetingly over my life and then moves on? Do I have a timeshare situation with the hand? Or should I say the Hand?

I’m taking some downtime (that means I am lying in bed all day) to consider all this and what it means (I wonder if Oprah ever takes downtime in bed in a state of confusion? Maybe God’s hand only works for people who have unending energy and never feel confused….)  and I am remembering a time in 2009. I had just returned from a trip to India (a trip given me as a gift – definitely a sweep of the ol’ hand!).

As I settled back into London life, one night I dreamt I had been called in by a client. Before I started running the session, I sit down and meditate.   A fly is circling the room. As I meditate it comes gently to reset in my open hand. In the dream I do nothing. It buzzes off to circle the room again.  I realise I could have simply closed my fingers to catch it. I keep meditating. Unexpectedly it circles and land directly back in my hand. I close my fingers and release it outside. I realise that the job for the client is done. They had called me in to take out the fly. Dream ends.

Inspired by remembering my dream, I realise that all these questions can be answered without effort. So now I meditate. And the answer to all these questions will simply arrive. In my hand. About God’s Hand.

God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one. Rumi

PERSONAL THOUGHTS – THE POWER OF CORRECTLY NAMING WHAT IS HAPPENING

How you classify things in your mind dramatically, amazingly and sometimes terribly alters things for you. This weekend I had a chance to deeply experience how different feelings come up when the name, the description, of a situation is changed in the mind.
 Here’s how it went:
 
I was on a business trip and needed to send email. Someone offered to lend me their internet dongle, which I gladly accepted. I went on-line did my thing and then placed the dongle on the kitchen counter. But I think that the dongle dragon was on the prowl that day, because, the dongle simply vanished in the course of the house being tidied, and I wasn’t doing the tidying! Everyone searched high and low. The situation was a mystery. Then it became an issue. Tension prevailed, tightropes were suddenly up and we were all trapeze artists.  What got me going was I was going to have to buy a dongle that I would never see or use or benefit from, one that already been thrown out! Ur hum, some of my money patterns were, shall I say, active? …
 
Lesson: Highly charged spaces, events that really press buttons are always Soul talk. I was very aware of how my body felt during the process, and how certain response patterns were screaming to play out. But I hung in by my nails. I kept allowed them place in my inner experience, but did not act them out.( In my workshops I call this the silent orgasm. You might want to shout or scream or moan, but because your mother in law is in the room next door, you won’t, can’t and don’t.  The same applies for processing stuck feelings  They are personal to you, and for your own to experience and release.)
 
As is the way with Spirit, the shift arrives in unexpected ways.  Whereas I was planning to meditate to help myself through these difficulties, a more and surprisingly elegant solution flowed in on its own – as I sat down to update my income and expenses I spontaneously renamed the dongle ‘debt’ – from ‘’buy a dongle [I will never hold or use dammit!]’’ to ‘’dongle usage’’ . Something magical happened. My feelings of being extorted turned to inner laughter. My mind replayed the loan, saw me needing to do internet that day, so much so, that I would be totally willing to pay R600 for a 30 minute session. Ha!

I still have a residue of stuckness in my gut. Probably very much part of a larger pattern of feeling forced to pay  –  and I will take to my meditation. But my relationship with this experience is in another category now.  And that’s wonderful. 

Naming it is framing it. And framing it creates a container which will allow – or disallow – energies to flow. Flow gives life to your body, wings to your dreams and infuses your heart with Love – love with a big L.

PS. This blog will be uploaded with the new dongle I intend to buy for myself today!

(Within 24 hours I had been offered a dongle at a quarter of the usual cost…)

What a naked lady at the gym taught me!

Yesterday I went to the gym planning to have a long steam bath after my workout. So after my yoga session I trotted along to the cloakrooms only to see, standing right in the middle of the entrance, a big sign ‘MEN AT WORK’! what I thought?! No way! How does this work in a ladies cloakroom?  I wasn’t the only one protesting inwardly, in fact a whole bunch of buck naked women were complaining their teeth off, talking to each other about how its ridiculous that they can’t have a shower after a workout, and how dare management do something like this without warning.
As I sat on the bench the picture of bliss and relaxation in that steam room dissolved in my mind, leaving me wet with sweat and limp with disappointment. (yes, it is only a steam bath, but still, it was a treat to myself after slogging for days…). However, since I fully believe that all things come together for my good (a biblical concept), my disappointment merged into acceptance, acceptance into action, and I happily decided to have a swim at home instead. However not so happy were the gaggle of naked women whose protestations, loud ones, slid through the passages of the ladies change rooms as I left. How silly, they were arguing with the attendant there, the attendant who was only implementing management’s decision??? I ask you? Likely that these very same wingeing ladies would be the first to complain if the showers stopped working!!!

Having been a similar moaner groaner in my life (my past life that is, er mostly) I’m not blaming them, but I notice how easy it is for human beings to resist, resist and resist – anything that goes contrary to plan is resisted!  But what if the maintenance crew working that day was THE plan:  the plan to make sure you weren’t driving home an hour later; or stepping off a side walk in front of an out of control taxi? To live in tune with yourself, your Soul and life, best not to resist what’s trying to happen. Consider the lady whose dawdling child made her a few minutes late for work – at the twin towers – on 9/11!
So maintenance men in your cloakroom, being stuck in traffic or not getting that job you so want. Relax. It’s time to live life in tune with Life! It holds a much broader plan for you life than taking a shower on time.

PERSONAL THOUGHTS – STOP BEING SO SERIOUS….!

It’s easy to get over serious about spiritual matters but nothing could be farther from the truth. Having fun replenishes your energies and keeps them moving. And what are those energies but very Soul itself. If you want to keep aligned to your Soul, it’s absolutely essential to have fun.

I recently worked on a challenging project and towards the end, the delivery date, I noticed how locked on to the task I was, and how little enjoyment I was getting from doing it. Right then and there I decided ‘if I’m going to do this (which I definitely was) I going to enjoy it!’. That choice didn’t change what I was doing. It changed something a lot more important – my approach and my energies. And although I was still concerned about how it was going to pull together, I was more resolute I would enjoy it. What a difference that made!
So this week I urge you whether you are reconciling your bank statements from way back when, studying for an exam, doing cold calls or washing the dishes, decide, really really decide that if you’re doing it, you’re going to have fun while you are. Fun is a simple choice away! One that your Soul is longing you to take.

PERSONAL THOUGHTS – I WROTE A NOTE TO GOD AND MY LIFE CHANGED FOREVER!

I wrote an magical little book in 2001. Ride the River. How I got to do that was out of the ordinary to say the least. Most authors gather information and then sit to write their words. My first books were much like that, but this one was different. All I did was connect to a concept. The rest came through me. This is how it happened.
On the 1st of January 2001 I wrote a note to God.  ‘Dear God, I am ready to unravel the mysteries of life. Teach me and I will teach others.’ This note wasn’t planned or even thought out. I was busying myself around the house when it simply arrived in my consciousness. I just said yes to the impulse, grabbed pen and paper and wrote it down. I still have that scribbled note in my papers, and looking back I see that this was a holy moment. We all have them. They take place when we align ourselves to our Soul. Sometimes that alignment happens by grace and other times by personal choice, however if we say a full yes to a holy moment it takes our lives to a new level in remarkable way, and that’s exactly what happened to me.
At the time I was living in Cape Town running a business in motivational training. By April of that year, the note long forgotten, I was getting ready to attend a friend’s wedding up country. Just before I left I ran a disciplinary process at the office. I found this extremely difficult and the incident left me upset, confused and drained. I left town with a clear awareness that some things needed to change and now was the time.
Fortuitously my short vacation gave me space to take stock of my life, in particular the amount of mental, emotional and physical energy I was putting in to keep my business going. I started asking myself, and God, why it was that I was always pushing myself way beyond what was healthy – working too hard, too long with not nearly enough rewards. I remember a moment of absolute clarity in my hotel room when I wrote on a piece of yellow post-it note  “no more push-push, I want to be in the flow.”  
No more push push! Gosh, how those words changed things. They became my mantra and without realising it they were God’s first answer to my New Year note. I had started to ‘unravel the mysteries of life’. I stopped pushing and started riding. What happened then was short of miraculous. All sorts of unexpected events started to occur and soon my entire life, my view of it was changed forever. The exact details are fascinating, and when I think back I always feel inspired. I want to share that true story, the hope and inspiration with you, so I continue the story in my next blog. In the meantime, please visit my facebook page and support me as I set out to create a new exciting energy around the book that unravelled those mysteries I spoke to God of.  RIDE THE RIVER – The definitive guide to aligning to your Soul, a river of Divine Energy, to achieve success.

Help from Unseen Guides

Unseen Guides
by Dr. Napoleon Hill

I was sent this inspiring piece recently, and find it so uplifting that I’m simply sharing it with you as is. Enjoy!
‘After I had met with one failure after another, and each time was tempted to desert or neglect my major mission in life, I began to notice that the effects of each failure were immediately wiped out the moment I got back on the track and began to carry out my mission. This happened so often that it could not be explained away as a mere coincidence.From personal experiences, I know there are friendly Guides available to everyone who will recognize them and accept their services. In order to avail oneself of the services of these unseen Guides, two things are necessary: first, one must express gratitude for their services; second, one must follow their guidance to the letter. Neglect in this respect will bring sure, if not always swift, disaster. Perhaps this may explain why some people meet with disasters, the cause of which they cannot understand; disasters which they do not believe to be the results of any fault on their part.

For many years I was so sensitive concerning the unseen Guides, whose presence I had felt, that I carefully avoided all references to them, in both my writings and in public lectures. Then, one day in a conversation with Elmer R. Gates, a distinguished scientist and inventor, I was overwhelmed with joy when I learned that he not only had discovered the presence of unseen Guides, but he had formed a working alliance with them which enabled him to perfect more inventions and procure more patents than had ever been granted to the great inventor, Thomas A. Edison.

From that day on I began to make inquiries of the hundreds of successful men who collaborated with me in the organization of the Science of Success, and discovered that each of them had received guidance from unknown sources, although many of them were reluctant to admit this discovery. My experience with men in the upper brackets of personal achievements has been that they prefer to accredit their success to their individual superiority.

Thomas A. Edison, Henry Ford, Luther Burbank, Andrew Carnegie, Elmer R. Gates, and Dr. Alexander Graham Bell went to great lengths in their descriptions of their experiences with unseen Guides, although some of these men did not refer to these invisible sources of aid as “guides.” Dr. Bell, in particular, believed the invisible source of aid was nothing but a direct contact with Infinite Intelligence, brought about by the individual’s stimulation of his own mind through a burning desire for the attainment of definite objectives.’

YOUR SOUL HELPS YOU ATTRACT WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE

Manifestation goes beyond goal setting. Instead of using mind power and focussed action to achieve your goals, manifestation reaches deeper, bringing in psycho-spiritual and emotional aspects. Essentially manifestation is a much broader, multifaceted approach to achieving those things your heart desires.
Manifestation, it turns out, has at its core, the heart – your real heart AND your heart of hearts. For most of us this means that the energy that gathers in our head through the process of thinking, needs to drop into the heart. In the West we have to retrain the basic everyday way we operate. But it can be done, and the more people who do it, the easier it becomes for others.
According to spiritual teacher Gregg Braden when the energy of the lower three chakras, comprising love or it’s opposite, meet the energy of the top three chakras, comprising thought/intellect, a feeling is created  in the heart. The quality of that feeling will determine what is manifested. And the quality of the feeling, is determined by the quality of the originating thought and whether it meets fear or love half way down.
It stands to reason that feelings of self worth and value will be a key determinant to whether you are successful in deliberate manifestation projects. Raising awareness and bringing healing to your self esteem is a prerequisite to achieving your goals in life. Hah! That’s the bad news for many as this is easier said than done – and many are so heart blocked that it’s seems an enormous task.
The good news is that the minute you set the intention to heal your self-esteem your Soul engages as well. Your Soul brings about an ideal set of circumstances (often not too comfortable), creating a perfect learning path -thus providing help in mystical and marvellous ways. Thank you Soul!
