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.

IF YOU BLOCK CONFLICT, YOU RUN THE RISK OF BLOCKING ABUNDANCE TOO

So many people waste their power and lose life energy in trying to avoid conflict.  In truth most people are deeply extremely afraid of conflict. However conflict, properly understood, is simply a call to greater intimacy (not sexual of course, but a real and sacred connectedness).  Spiritual practise involves meditation and the like, but spiritual practise is also involves holding yourself in an inner space to face conflict in an open-hearted way. Thomas Hubl, spiritual teacher par excellence frames it this way …’If I am in difficult conflict situations ready to let the unpleasant really be uncomfortable, not to displace it, then I can anchor myself so strongly in the unpleasantness that I hold the space open to really get access to the essential core of the conflict. Then the essence of the conflict will speak through me. This is the moment where transformation happens.’

(Thomas Hübl in a talk with Tom Steininger from EnlightenNext Radio about Transparent Communication)

WHY LISTENING TO YOUR SOUL IS IMPORTANT TO GOAL ACHIEVEMENT

The Soul is a field of intelligence and a stream of energy.  It is not a replica of your human form but it knows of YOUR human condition intimately, and holds the memories of all your lives, past and future, however it is not moved by emotions like the human-self.

The Soul knows every decision you have and will ever make – right to the point of the death of your body. It knows your challenges and every single possibility that presents itself in every choice, whether seemingly mundane, like which route to take to work, or seemingly huge, like which person to marry.

Your Soul has lived your life already and knows what life you would have led as you go up the tunnel to Spirit, but at the same time it also mystically remains connected to Spirit (your Spirit and the Universal Life Force – the Great Spirit). Quite something, is it not? It therefore knows your destiny and the life path to which you committed as you took on a human form, and all your human foibles and struggles, and it mediates between the two – all with the aim of getting you to raise your human consciousness.  It is that purpose, raised human consciousness, that is Soul’s total abiding purpose.

In light and gratitude,

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.

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!

Personal Power- Sacred Power- What is it?

Its incredibly difficult, if not painful, to try to move your life forward – and up –  without being supported by your personal power. We all have personal power. But many and most have disconnected from it because they are afraid of it in various forms.

As children we learn powerlessness, but as adults we need to reclaim it.  How we do this, and whether we are aligned to our Soul & Spirit at the time, will determine whether our power will be ‘corrupt’, expressing itself as power over people and game playing, or whether it will lead to raising your consciousness,  benefiting not only yourself, but everyone.  It is vital to know this. It’s even more important to know how to bring yourself into this alignment. It doesn’t take 10 hours of meditation or continual acts of kindness. All it takes it 3 minutes of conscious breathing a day. Conscious breathing is the first connection to the Divine, and by deliberating including this practise in your life, your vibrational reality will change amazingly, connecting you to more of your Soul self,  more often.

Conscious breathing is something I keep referring to and writing about and if you do nothing but this as your spiritual practise, you will be doing a brilliant practice!  Here’s how:

 1. find a quiet place where you will be undisturbed

2. set an alarm for three minutes so that you can completely let go and not worry about the time

3. close your eyes and bring your attention on your breathing

4. breathe in for the count of 4, pulling air to  your tummy so that it expands, hold it for 2 seconds, and then softly exhale for the count of 6, hold it out for 2  seconds.

5. Repeat this breathing until your alarm clock goes.

Your focus is simply on breathing and counting. At first you might find your mind chips in, chattering away about what you need to do or other such stuff. When that happens, gently bring your attention back to the process of counting your breaths in and out. Just become breathing and counting, counting and breathing. The beauty of this is that not only do you align yourself to your Soul and Spirit Self, but starting off each day with this exercise gives you a sense of control of your life – and this type of breathing releases feel- good chemicals in the brain. This simple practise centres you in yourself, your power and life!

‘Imagine that the universe is a great spinning engine. You want to stay near the core of it – right in the hub of the wheel – not out at the edges where all the wild whirling takes place, where you can get frayed and crazy. The hug of calmness, that your heart, that where God lives within you, where you will always find peace. ‘  Anon

 

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.
 
 

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 8: Terrified you can’t pay your bills?

 

Our manifestation project is working brilliantly!  I know this because many have been reporting a full on experience of the inner barriers that lie between them and their money goals. What is this full on experience?  Fear, worry and lack! now what’s the best approach to that fear?
Yes, these moments are scary and downright confusing at a logical level. But at a Soul level they makes complete sense since we have invoked healing of your relationship to money, mega money, and so everything that needs to be healed has come up and shown you its face. The worst thing you can do is try to fix it, stop it or resist in anyway. Rather hold your mega money intention firmly in your mind, and encourage your scared-self to breath deep, stand fully in the present moment, and feel every single tinge of angst. Anything (fear included) fully experienced turns to bliss. This process of unpacking your feelings about money is essential to becoming attractive to mega money.
So that you really get where I’m coming from on this relationship with money  idea let me explain it in another way. I have two friends who cycle to work. One has a car and a bicycle, and chooses to cycle to work because it’s healthy, fun and environmentally friendly. The other has no car and cycles to work because that is his primary mode of transport. Both have bikes, both cycle to work.
From the outside the facts are the same. But in truth the situations are very different. Why? Because their relationship with their bike is completely different. To the one with the car, the bike is a ‘nice to have’, to the other it is a ‘ have to have’. If the bike got stolen from the one who has a car the theft would be inconvenient, but not major. However if the bike got stolen from the one who used his bike to get everywhere, it dramatically affects their way of life. From this we see how the facts and situation do not create our experience of life, rather how our relationship to the facts is responsible for our experience of life.
Your relationships are deeply influenced by your beliefs, patterns needs, wants, personality and life situation. Your relationship with your feelings about money is also defined by these things. For instance if you need to be have lots of money in your life feel ok about yourself, experiencing lack will be an intense and loaded  experience that you are likely to resist. To another personality who doesn’t have money as a source of validation, not having money wouldn’t have such a strong negative charge.
So to get ourselves in touch with and working in harmony with the power of our feelings about money, we need to develop an understanding of our relationship to our them. For this, it’s essential that you give yourself permission to feel them. To help you do this in a supported way, here’s a fabulous new tool, the karate chop technique. It is from EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) www.eftuniverse.com 
The karate chop
It’s done with the hands. That’s the beauty of it – it by-passes your mind and the rubbish it can tell you about yourself and money. With the karate chop you tap on energy pathways that lead to limiting feelings, bringing about the release of negative emotional states. This technique is brilliant to heal deep seated and even unconscious fears about money, having it – or the lack of it.
1. Tap the top of one hand with the finger tips of the other, starting by tapping the top part of the thumb as shown in the picture. You will state the difficult feeling experience as you do this always beginning with these words ‘ even though
 2. Continue to describe the negative feeling situation as you continue tapping over the top of the hand towards the baby finger.
 3. Once you have tapped your way to the end of your hand complete the exercise with a karate chop movement as shown in the picture, chopping the same point in each hand at the fleshy edge together several times as you say these words  ‘…. I deeply love and accept myself’.
  So let’s apply this fabulously releasing technique to a money scenario. Let’s say your income has dropped off to levels where you can’t pay your bills.  In this situation, the sentence you will speak as you tap and chop will be something like this:
‘Even though I am so scared that I have no money. A part of me feels like I’m going to die. I feel like lying down and giving up. I think about what I’m going to say to my landlord and I freeze. And then I remember I don’t have money for petrol and I feel sick.  I deeply love and accept myself.’
The combining of the sentence with the tapping sequence will be something like this:
‘Even though I am so scared that I have no money
A part of me feels like I’m going to die
 
I think about what I’m going to say to my landlord and I freeze
 
I feel like lying down and giving up.
And then I remember I don’t have money for petrol and I feel sick
[KARATE CHOP] I deeply love and accept myself.
Congratulations! You have just learned a life changing technique. Tap this out in sequences of three. This helps you discover more layers. And do the karate chop as often as you can – whenever you feel any money niggle arise – the more you do it, the more you release. Even better do it on the hour every hour as well. As you set out to do this consider these wise words of Lao Tzu:  ‘all difficult things have their origin in that which is easy and great things in that which is small’.  Each time you acknowledge your feeling about money and work with it in this small way, you’re putting your feet onto the path to mega money!
