PERSONALITY & EGO ARE IMPORTANT IN ATTRACTING AND HOLDING SUCCESS

All too often I hear personality and ego berated, or at least talked down. Nonsense! All great men and women have great personalities.

Could Nelson Mandela have achieved what he has without his magical charisma? No!

Could Einstein have been the ground breaking scientist without his multifaceted specificity? No!

Personality/ego are containers to hold Divine Energy. The bigger the personality, the bigger the power. So turf ideas that you should be a transparent nothingness and be bold in being yourself, loving your personality and all the richness it brings to others.

INSPIRING QUOTE

Here’s another magnificent quote from one of my most favourite books, the Aquarian Gospel. Hope it inspires you too:

‘I would not stay the flow of your great streams of thought; but I would turn them to the channel of the soul.’   

What I love about it is that it refers to the openness  and expansiveness that is characteristic of alignment with your Soul.

At the moment I am finding myself extremely challenged at a level of personal safety and quickly I go  into constricted mode, blocking my flow of energies of life and success. So I’m doing lots of meditation to help myself keep expansive. I have a brilliant toning done by Thomas Hubel, a spiritual teacher based in Germany, which really clears away much of emotional garbage. I’ll post his web details soon.

WRITE A NOTE TO YOUR SOUL – AND HAVE BREAK THROUGH!

Write a big sign and note to your Soul 

‘Am I taking the right actions to achieve my financial goals? Show me  clearly, very clearly what I should do each day, every day, to achieve my money goals.’

Keep repeating the question, never ever trying to find the answers yourself. It’s an answer from your Soul you’re seeking. These answers arise in unexpected moments of being relaxed and at ease. After a time, it could be a day, a fortnight or 6 weeks, an intuitive flash will give you the answer. Yay!

IF YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED, YOU WILL PUSH AWAY SUCCESS

Two weeks ago I hit the overwhelm wall. I had too many ideas, too long a to-do list and no sense of doing the important stuff. Obviously this was not true. I was active and productive, but my perception and relationship with my activities was not. And that’s the crux of any situation. It’s not what you are doing, it’s the thoughts about what you’re doing.
So, I started to use my faithful and ever effective helper – the ASK TOOL – which simply turns any mental churn into a question. Ta raa! I love it. Then I combined with another favourite. SURFING or riding the river – riding waves of impulses when they’re up; chilling when they’re down. Something I might add that most people simply cannot give themselves permission to do.
And so, instead of forcing myself to pretend I had va va voom on Monday, I wrote a note asking ‘how do I dissolve my overwhelm? What things should I not do, and what things should I do?’ Then I went back to  my wonderful bed with a view over trees and fountains, and allowed my overwhelm to take me down. I was surfing. Waiting behind the waves.
Next day I was back to my normal routine, but slower. I was still behind the waves. But my question waited on my desk,  tapping into the brilliance of the super-conscious and the perpetual wisdom of that stream of intelligence that is Soul. And so it was for the next few days. No resistance, just asking and surfing. But things were about to change. I can’t tell you exactly how or when, but a new work system started to settle in my brain, a way of segmenting my time that would achieve my goals. So I wrote it down and felt inspired. It felt good. It felt perfect. Soul solutions are like that.
What happened? As I acted on this intuitive plan, my motivation and excitement went sky high. Suddenly my love for writing blogs was back and ideas streamed into me. And new ways to attract business simply landed in my consciousness. Doors started opening to help me succeed. I was back in the zone.
So if you’re battling from overwhelm, give my method a whirl. It’s scary. Society doesn’t supports such models. It’s the Soul way to operate. Trust, joy and motivation – why on earth would anybody not want to connect to the power of their Soul?

MANIFESTING MONEY – ON LINE LESSONS – An Introduction

Come and join me for the next 10 days online. I will be posting a lesson a day about deliberate manifestation.. starting this afternoon at 14.00pm.
INTRODUCTION
This is the first in a series of posts about manifestation, deliberate manifestation. We are all manifesting all the time. We cannot avoid that. Who we are, our beliefs and patterns, but most importantly our feelings, conscious/unconscious, are acting as a mould which directs the life force to create circumstances and situations in our lives.

Deliberate manifestation moves that process from an unconscious to a conscious one, and that is an exciting development – one that our Soul has been waiting for. When we put ourselves in the driver seat in this way, we set about learning the very things that our Soul is interested in – how we can work on the inner to raise our consciousness – and impact the world around us.
Soul is about manifesting life deliberately, and there is nowhere more potent forum for this than the arena of money.

Far from being the root of all evil, money and the making of it, is the root of all learning when done with Soul principles in mind. When guided by your Soul, finding money becomes a sacred journey  that raises your consciousness. So to set this truth up in your beingness and prepare you to go to a new money level, lesson one on our manifesting money is to write out these affirmations about money, and put it up on your wall:
The pursuit of money is a good thing. My Soul guides me in this.
Getting and keeping money raises my consciousness.
I deserve, and have the ability to earn money, mega money, fast.
Look at these affirmations, and say them out loud as often as you can, but at least 5 times in the morning on waking, and five times at night before sleeping. This ensures you set up your day in the right way, and get your subconscious to keep processing your money stuff at night. Words stated out loud are potent because they override your subconscious programming, and also influence the particles around you. Just trust as you make these statements that you are unleashing some magic in your world – and you will!
In the next few day’s I’ll be looking at the principle of Oneness and its role in deliberate manifestation, and also the importance of owning your sh*te.

A BEAUTIFUL EXPLANATION OF THE SOUL’S PURPOSE & ROLE

The soul’s role is to bring you home, back to Spirit using a set of experiences and circumstances as the learning platform. We get back home to Spirit  self when we connect with spiritual possibilities. We get back home when our human choices resonate with the higher possibilities of the Divine.
The mystic texts refer to this great task and even tell us how we got to be so removed from the Divine Life Force. Levi explains the Creation and our fall from Grace in his Aquarian Gospel :
“The Triune God breathed forth, and seven Spirits stood before his face… these spirits moved on the face of boundless space and seven ethers were, and every ether had its form of life. These forms of life were but the thoughts of God, clothed in the substance of their ether planes… they are composed of substance far too fine for fleshly eyes to see, and still they constitute the soul of things. And in their native planes all creatures are supplied with nourishment from the ethers of their planes. Because all forms of life on every plane are thoughts of God, all creatures think, and every creature is possessed of will, and, in its measure, has the power to choose….  
And so it was with every living thing, until the will became a sluggish will, and then the ethers of the protoplast, the earth, the plant, the beast, the man began to vibrate very slow. The ethers all became more dense, and all the creatures of these planes were clothed with coarser garbs, the garbs of flesh, which men can see; and thus this courser manifest, which men call physical appeared. And this is what is called the fall of man; but man fell not alone for protoplast, and earth, and plant and beast were all included in the fall. The angels and the cherubim fell not; their wills were ever strong and so they held the ethers of their planes in harmony with God.”
This is it, in a nutshell! read it, re-read it, and read it again until it explodes in your psyche, when that happens nothing will be the same again!

MANIFESTING MONEY – FINAL LESSON

As we bring this series to a close taking yourself through a completion is important. Doing this will leave you with a sense of accomplishment, clarity on what you’ve got out of the course and what you need to do next.

How to do that:

1. Write down your intentions/goals set at the beginning. Assess your progress, noticing the feelings that arise. Yes or No? How stuck/how free?
2. Rate how committed you were to the goal and the process – without judgement. Low commitment = resistance to money.
3. Browse all the lessons then write a short list of your key insights – and list another of the manifesting tools you learned
4. Highlight those that worked well for you, and mark those which you will continue using as part of your daily practise. Commit to them.
5. Decide to teach these to someone in your life when the opportunity arises (we teach what we most need to learn)
6. State your next steps and develop an intention ( which might be a continuing of the old one).
7. Close your eyes and give thanks to the group and the learning, send light to our little community and then release it with love.

Thanks for joining me in a wonderful journey of manifesting and sharing. May your next steps be filled with new awareness, a deep connection with your Soul and a powerful sense that your life is guided and held.

MANIFESTING MONEY Lesson 9: Practical tips

Money does grow on trees!
All too often we spend our time thinking about money. That creates problems. Your relationship with money goes beyond thought patterns and beliefs, it’s a cellular affair too. Including simple daily activities is incredibly helpful to shifting stuck and unhelpful cellular memories and feelings about money for the better.
EXERCISE 1
For those of you participating in the on-line manifesting course, do an audit on what new practices you have learned during the course – and how you are, or are not, implementing them. An essential part of the course is to assess how you are doing relative to your goals. This will help pinpoint areas that still need more energy from you, but equally importantly give you a chance to appreciate your progress.  Such appreciation is the fuel of motivation and enthusiasm.

So, for instance, list all the tools you have learned from my lessons and how you are applying them (or not), what personal insights you’ve had about your relationship to money and what you’ve done with that information (or not), how well you are interacting and sharing with others on the course, using the blog as the communication platform (or not), rate your degree of commitment to the goal from 1 to 10 – and so on.  So please go through this exercise and post up your findings here.

EXERCISE 2

        Start an abundance box or jar. This is a wonderful amazing way to put abundance consciousness into your being. It’s inspired by the Ananda Assisi, a centre near Assisi for the teaching of Paramahansa Yogananda.

Find a bottle, a plastic container or a lovely decorated bag or box. Every day put in an amount of money that you consider negligible, 5 cents for example. This ensures you do the exercise without fear. As you put the money in the box, close your eyes and say ‘Teach me to feel that Thou are the power behind all wealth and the value within all things. Finding thee first I will find all things in Thee. Help me to manifest material and spiritual abundance through the realisation of the Oneness of all things and the universal source of supply.

Also create a separate compartment in the abundance box. I call this my giving compartment into which I sometimes add a small amount to that saying ‘Teach me to give appropriately.’ I have an urge to give away money and this is helping me give from a sacred space not a conditioned  one.

3.   EXERCISE 3
        Symbolically uplift your handling of money. This provides a critical change point in your subliminal relationship with money.People with money issues have an entangled and ambivalent relationship with money.
  1. Tidy up your purse. Scrappy credit card slips stuffed randomly into your purse show disrespect, repelling money.
  2. Whenever you give or receive money, take a moment to mindfully put it in your wallet, blessing it irrespective of how much it is.
  3. When I receive cash I put it in the centre of a nice brass tray, and then lay a rose quartz crystal on top of it. Everytime I see that crisp R100 note adorned with a beautiful crystal something in me leaps in an uplifting and positive way. I rather fancy that this is healing many years of secretly believing that money is the root of all evil.
4.    EXERCISE 4
         Start doing an active blessing on your food. Since manifesting money is a heart affair, and your heart is more than likely closed to money, this practise will teach you to open your heart at will. Hold your hands over your food, close your eyes, get the picture of the plant or animal from where the food came and then bless it with all your being. Then bless the over lighting intelligence that guides that plant or animal form, giving deep thanks that this intelligence exists on the earth. Then think of the whole system of mother nature and fully appreciate the wisdom that created the earth. If I’m eating fish for example, I think about the oceans and the sun, and give thanks for them too. By this time my heart is wide open. I then gives thanks to all the people involved. If I have the luxury of eating organic, I thank that farmer for choosing to work with mother nature.  I then thank everyone involved in getting the food from the farm onto the supermarket shelves, trucks, trains, shelf packers – the lot! This process, repeated over and over unexpectedly taught me to open my heart at will, and that’s a useful skill when it comes to money!
        Later in the course you will use it to attract money, but for now, don’t entangle money stuff with heart stuff. Just learn to open your heart to magnificence of food, nourishment and eating.

You now have 4 very practical ways to build a fabulous relationship with money. Including these practises in your life helps you feel divinely favoured and in tune with all of life. When that happens, all of life will suddenly expand to include the money that comes from trees, the silver and gold that come from deep earth. And then you’ll be on your way to mega money. Yay!

MONEY TITBIT: what to do when new goals come up after you’ve already named another

So what do we do when new goals come up after we’ve already named another? Oh yes! I have experienced this a lot.
I fixed it by creating an over lighting goal. It is: I HAVE UNBENDING INTENTION.
This made me clarify exactly those things I am certain I want, and, by  writing the words UNBENDING INTENTION on top of my goal sheet, and then visualising and affirming it, I got settled and focussed on my main goals.
Changing those goals? I do fine tune them when I get an impulse, and I find that a beneficial process, but after 3 weeks of doing the unbending intention goal, I got centred and strong in those goals.
