THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO DEAL WITH STUCKNESS AND PROBLEMS

There is a door. That door is marked MY DESTINY, MY PASSION. You need to find it, and the good news is that you CAN find it. And it is easier than you probably think. The trick is to pull back the curtain that hides the door. That curtain is called MY MAIN HORRIBLE LIFE CIRCUMSTANCE. Yes! You have read right.  Your main problem is a curtain, that when approached with the right mind set, can be pulled back to reveal the door to your destiny.

I discovered this by looking back on my own life path and realising that my divorce 30 years ago was THE most traumatic, challenging and difficult thing ever, but was THE turning point for me. I was left to fend for me and my children on my own – without emotional skills, money or qualifications. It was a do or die thing and the circumstances squeezed me, squeezed me tight, so tight I was forced to face the problems head on. No getting away from myself anymore!  I had to ask myself what I was going to do about my life. By deciding that I was going to make it, and make it big, I set in motion a process of mining myself and my talents.  Suddenly I was discovering all sorts of things I could do well – and delightfully – enjoy too! Suddenly I was becoming a high powered business woman, aerobics instructor, course leader, speaker and author.  I was flying, I was happy.  Yes I had daily challenges, and still many personality flaws to work on, but I also had a vision and the motivation to achieve it. My problems had become my delicious destiny. Big problems are a psycho-spiritual device to create a focus point for your life-learning. They are also a mechanism to make sure you bring forth your gifts, for your personal use, and to share with the world.

Tip:  go to a curtain in your house, close it and step back, saying to yourself my biggest problem is like this curtain. Then deliberately open the curtain saying to yourself: THROUGH MY MAIN HORRIBLE PROBLEM, I NOW FIND AND OPEN THE DOOR TO MY PASSION AND LIFE DESTINY. IT IS EASY.  If you do this, the information held in your cells will shift.  Do this often.  Involving your body in your decision is potent. Energy will start to flow and soon the right guidance will appear in your world – a soft idea floating into your mind, a friend who mentions something, a comment in a film, a hunch……

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.

A compelling yes! The va va voom of decision making

The yeses and the no’s. We all have a sense of them in our system. Too few cultivate these sensations to a point of fine-tuned decision making. But that is their role and potential. In this way our Soul, a stream of overlighting energy talks to us.

Here are the categories I use to frame and work with the information flowing into me:

  • a niggle – a tiny feeling, but nonetheless incredibly accurate, that something ain’t right!
  • a full yes – a big feeling that what is happening is wonderfully amazingly right
  • a compelling YES – there is no getting away from it
  • a compelling NO – the other book end of the compelling YES making sure you don’t try escape the thing you have to do

Advice: live through your body – exercise, physical activity, body-based meditation and spiritual practice. It builds a good clear communication link to all this juicy, helpful information.

HOW PEOPLE MANIFEST WHAT THEY DON’T WANT!

On Sunday I got a up close and personal with one of my own patterns around money – going unconscious. Yes, all too often, I go unpresent when dealing with money. On Sunday, at the end of a workshop I gathered the payments together, holding the crisp notes in my hand as I chatted to a participant.

We decided to go together to look at the campus gardens, and I remember instinctively lifting my hand to put the notes into the front pocket on my jeans. I can remember thinking that putting the money there would crumple the money, something I didn’t want to do. The next thing I remember is walking along the path discussing the gardens. The memory of what I actually did with the money was simply missing!

This is exactly the process of manifesting what you don’t want. Going unpresent!  By doing that on Sunday I could have lost my takings for the day. Lying in the back pocket of my jeans, those notes could have been washing-machined to nothing!

So, with three clicks of my fingers, (which I call the click tool, a way of creating a gap between an event and a response) I will sharpen my money practice and invite myself to be present. When I am present, I am in the presence of the Divine Life Force, God.

Are You one of the Walking Dead?

 
me all rained out – but happy!

Want to find the walking dead? Look in large organisations. So many there have lost their connection to their Soul, and a sense of excitement and love for their work. 

Working to pay the bills is the quickest way to start dying inside. Too many rational decisions, taking life – and yourself too seriously coupled with boring conformity, are a sure guarantee you’ll loose your zest for life. And loosing your zest is a clear indication that you’ve dropped your Soul connection. Ping! Line Dropped! Out in the cold!

Best thing you can do is take on life with a childlike mindset. Today I did just that! I’ve just started a recycling project in my complex. It’s a large place that spews out garbage by the buckets, most dumped indiscriminately by disinterested residents. So each day I take my bright spark self to the new recycling area where I rummage in other people’s rubbish. Yes, it’s not a pretty picture, but someone has to direct wet garbage away from dry clean recycling stuff. That someone is me. It’s about the principle ‘If it’s to be, it’s up to me’ or leading from the front!

 
Today however it was raining cats and dogs. As I contemplated the weather I decided not to be put off. Hey! Why not do my recycling stint in the rain and enjoy it like a child would! So I changed into suitable clothes and set off. On the way I got to laugh and chat with one of the gardeners, and we agreed a walk in the rain was good for the Soul. I trundled bins around with rain running down my shoulders, opened black bags with water dripping down my back, and packed cardboard in neat stacks to the applause of thunder and lightening. What fun! How liberating, and then I walked back to my apartment sloshing through the rivulets and puddles.
So dear Soul seeker, I invite you ditch, just every now and then, boring adult sensible stuff. Enliven your Soul. Keep that connection. Say yes to enjoying every task. Now is the only time there is. Make it work for you – and your Soul Self.
 
 

PRAYER (FOR THOSE WHO BATTLE TO TRUST LIFE)

This saying became my mantra for a year. I copied it out, decorated it with a drawing and put it on my wall. (I also insisted it went into the communal kitchen for everyone else to see!)  Every time I read it, something deep inside me shifted. 

TRUST

Don’t waste your life for that which is going to be taken away. Trust Life.

If you trust only then can you drop your knowledge

only then can you put your mind aside.

And with trust something immense opens up.

Then this life becomes full of God, overflowing.

When the heart is innocent and the walls have disappeared you are bridged with infinity.

And you are not deceived; there is nothing that can be taken away from you.

That which can be taken away is not worth keep and that which cannot be taken away form you, why should one be afraid of it being taken away?

It cannot be taken away, there is no possibility. You cannot lose your real treasure.

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.

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!

THE POWER TO COMMAND MONEY INTO YOUR LIFE

Those who have struggle in any way with financial lack often develop an ostrich approach to money, hiding from the fact –  because they are simply so scary. So the project this week is to know what you know about your finances by developing a budget. Look back at the last month and assess what you have spent. Total it up by categories that reflect your average spend. For instance R1000 on food, R3000 on rent etc. Don’t be fussy. Dithering and making a big issue of this exercise is simply part of the lack way of living. Invite yourself to keep it simple.

As you do this project notice the sensations in your body. When started doing it did your stomach clench? Did you heart beat faster? As you look at your what you spent  did you feel nauseas or completely happy and uplifted? When you totalled up the amount did you feel panicky? Do the project on a dual highway of awareness –on the one hand the facts and figures, on the other your emotional response. These physical sensations are simply information. Ask a neutral observer to come forward and notice them without judgement. Then write down everything that happened. For example if your stomach tightened at the beginning and got tighter and tighter until it was a little ball at the end, you would write that, noticing you were in physical clamp down the entire time.

Physical contraction or constriction is what I call the NO state.  When the NO state is active around money, it closes you down and repells money. When the YES state, joy, pleasant anticipation and relaxed expansion, is active your beeper is ON shouting to the universe ‘MEGA MONEY COME HERE’. In YES states you are attractive to money. As you do this be aware that ff, like I had, you are seriously afraid and contracted in money issues, your healing journey will be a gradual process. And awareness is the only thing you need to trigger a natural healing process that lives within you and knows how to run without your help. If you try to stop a NO state, or change it, it makes it worse. There are ways to shift, but for now its very useful for you to discover the action of YES and NO energies in you when you are dealing with money.

So happy journeys with your mega money manifestation project!

USE ALL YOUR BRAINS TO ATTRACT YOUR IDEAL LIFE

Did you know that we have three main brains? Yes, it’s true. One left brain, one right one, and another less known, the heart. Scientists now know that the heart has over 50% neural cells and is responsible for directing the manufacture of key brain regulating hormones. Yep, it’s true the heart is actually the boss of the brain and boss of your body.In truth the heart is actually boss of your life. It has a magnetic field bigger than the brain. It also has a electrical field bigger than the brain. Accordingly to the HearthMath Institute in the USA, the heart’s electromagnetic field permeates every cell of the body and is 500 times more powerful than the electromagnetic field around the brain. That’s something isn’t it!
I cannot emphasize, once again, how important it is to bring your daily thought processes into your heart centre. When you do this, your decisions will become coloured and imbued with Soul qualities, giving you body based insights to direct your life along the correct path, a higher destiny and consciousness.

Modern man’s natural inclination is to use the brain to understand and navigate life. and so we have to deliberately re-train ourselves to include heart based decision making. Simply taping on your heart with the tips of your fingers from time to time during the day will help you, and your heart-mind, remember that it’s actually the boss and that you know that! And when that happens, move over your life! Watch how much more in tune you will be with the heart beat of your own destiny.
