Moving into Awakening

 

Part of awakening involves gaining greater consciousness, which involves increased awareness. Awareness of thought, emotion, and sensation—and their impact on us—can help a great deal in discovering the inner self. In part, awakening is about learning to alter our focus, thoughts, and feelings to raise the level of our consciousness.

Here are a few tips:

  1. We attract a deeper state of awakening by reflecting on spirituality. Thinking about past experiences–and the feeling of flow and connection—to invoke a spiritual state. This practice engages the awakened self. Also, it literally teaches the mind to replicate higher frequencies. When we think about a spiritual state, we pull the energy into our mind, emotions, and body.
  2. Thought alters the placement of our consciousness. We can think about problems or focus on solutions. When we focus on harmony or peace, we literally attract it. If we stay with the thought for a few minutes, we receive visuals and memories (if we have experienced the state in the past.) Focusing on positive thoughts invokes a specific state of consciousness. It’s helpful to note the effect of a thought. Does it raise or lower our frequency?
  3. Emotions come from beliefs, thoughts, sensations, other people, and mass consciousness. Identifying the source of an emotion is incredibly useful—as is identifying patterns. When we center in the heart space, the emotions often cease. (This is known as centering.) The broadcast of strong emotion from others is also diminished. (Many of our emotions are transmitted from others and media.)
  4. Pull thoughts, emotions, and sensations back into the body to create a state of stillness. We tend to project and broadcast our feelings and thoughts. When stillness comes, focus on light. When possible, send light to others. (When we are still, there is a very subtle flow of energy.)
  5. Use the imagination positively. Visualize positive events, the sensation of well-being, and an immense well of physical energy. Imagine the opposite of negative experiences or sensations. Imagine pink light (love) moving into the visualization and energizing it positively. (We can check with the body to see how we feel after visualization. Relaxation and expansion are associated with higher consciousness; tension and contraction are associated with lower self.)
  6. Focusing on the heart leads naturally to a state of love. Universal love helps in vibrating above difficulties in life as well as mass consciousness. It also opens the channel for receiving intuition and higher truth.
  7. Acts of kindness affect the world. When we help others, raise their consciousness, or send love (and/or peaceful emotions), it raises the vibratory rate of the planet.

Notes: Simply noticing states of consciousness as the presence of thoughts, moods, or beliefs alters the flow of consciousness and brings increased awareness.

Another Shift in the Weather

 

 

As a reminder, we have until February 5 to move forward on dreams and desires of the heart. Please take a small step as the planets support outer effort, and the universe will give direction at a later date.

The first quarter moon chart is challenging. Many planets are placed in earth and fire along with strong influences from Uranus (sudden change) and Saturn (karma.)—and there are few planets in air (clear thought.) Think of a volcano!  Fortunately, Sun is placed (life) in Aquarius, an air sign denoting the New Age, and Moon (emotions) sits in Taurus, a practical, grounding earth sign. These two placements can bring inspired answers accompanied by practical insights.

Astrologer Carl Boudreau pointed out that part of the current challenge involves tuning into the North Node, which indicates our spiritual quest–and is currently placed in Virgo. With North Node placed in Virgo, our attention should be placed on order, new methodology in our work, and inner healing—as well as hearing the tuning of the Cosmos. The temptation lies in revisiting tried and “true” methods from the past, represented by South Node in Pisces, the ruler of the past age. It’s important to find new ways of moving through life, new methods of self-expression in work, and techniques that can heal the schism between the inner and outer self.

Sun trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), indicating New Age thoughts of balance, love, and positive thought can link us with the more benevolent forces of the universes. (The New Age is ruled by Aquarius, favoring innovative solutions that relate to the “whole” of humanity in a balanced sense.)

Mercury (thought, communication) sits in Capricorn, continuing its conjunction with Pluto (underworld, resources, transmutation), hinting at the need to rethink financial and natural resources. Additionally, Mercury squares (tension) Jupiter (expansion, growth) and Uranus (awakening), hinting at the importance of using resources in a balanced and positive way. (We may need to weigh the value of intrinsic beauty and sacred ground with the current quest for economical growth. (There are new forms of energy, which work and need to come into being—and it’s important to tap into the universal law of abundance on a practical level.)

Venus

Venus (feminine, art, beauty) remains exalted in Pisces, making it possible to unite from a place of love. Venus sits in conjunction to Mars (masculine, assertion), and she brings balance to the male/female energies of the inner/outer world. Venus squares (tension) Saturn, which can make life seem and feel a bit dark, but it also gives an excellent sense of structure to artistic endeavors. On the healing side of the equation, Venus conjuncts Chiron, the wounded healer, indicating the possibility of finding a deeper level of healing through the auspices of love.

Mars (masculine, assertion) moves into Aries, its fiery native sign, igniting action and forward motion. Mars squares (tension) Saturn (limitation, karma), meaning it’s wise to give a pause to desires and the need to take action by considering its implications in the larger picture. (How will long-range goals affect personal/planetary karma? Does the desire bring “good” to all?)

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) opposes Uranus, the ruler of awakening, change, and the quantum field. Essentially, it brings opposing sets of thoughts and feelings. Uranus encourages embracing change and possibly radical action. And Jupiter asks for balance and beauty without altering the status quo. As with most conflicts, the answer lies somewhere in the middle of the debate. It takes time to align with the right answer as well as time to bring it into being. (Observe thoughts from a neural place.)

Jupiter also squares Pluto (underground, hidden world), hinting at the need to see the underworld, the underlying truths beneath our social/economic structure to create growth, which brings harmony and peace. Saturn (limitation, karma, time) trines Uranus, which gives an incredible opportunity to mitigate karma and move into the new world.

Uranus and Pluto are tightly entwined in the square (3 degree orb) that has brought much chaos into the world. As we move into the last year of the square, there is a great initiative to shape chaos into a creative, balanced form for the good of “All”.

Last Quarter Moon: Embrace Change, Clear Emotion

 

At the moment, the skies remain gray, but the forecast offers space for breakthroughs, healing, and inner understanding. As the moon slowly ebbs, it extends a time for creating change through self-reflection and sharing with others. If we truly want to move through old wounds to the clarity of light, it’s possible.

Truthfully, we are moving into an unknown frontier where energy behaves differently, and the world sometimes feels chaotic. Much of the impetus of the planets is about vibrating above the worldly roar by taking action discerned from the inner space of stillness. The earlier “push” of moving forward with all planets direct remains, but it requires more reflection and inspired action.

The chart is weighted by water (emotion) with Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron in Pisces, the sign of the past age. The Sun sits in Aquarius, heralding rapid communications, spiritual growth, and the work of individuals within a group. It’s an air sign, which rules the sphere of thought.

Mercury is in Capricorn, an earth sign ruling finances, success in the material world, and practical aspects of life. Mercury rules the mind and communication. Both thought and communication can feel a bit dense, and it can take longer to transmit a message through media and/or the mind.

Venus (feminine, earthly pleasures) and Mars (male energy, assertion) are conjunct or closely placed in Pisces, which intensifies both planets—and in this case, emotions (water.) Venus and Mars in Pisces can bring about harmony between the masculine/feminine within the self.

Venus also conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which aids in aligning with the beauty in the world. Together, Venus and Neptune reveal the beauty and softness of life. This aspect can give the illusion that it’s perfectly correct to float through life—and not take action. (This is the illusory quality of Neptune in combination with the beauty of Venus.) On the positive, they support mystical insights and can strengthen intuition.

Mars in Pisces can bring up repressed feelings, old grudges and victimhood. It squares Saturn (karma, limitation), meaning it’s easy to feel the pain of the past and forget that life is about gaining from the lessons of karma, surrendering unrealistic beliefs, and moving into the quantum field.

Fortunately, Venus and Mars are conjunct (close to) Chiron with all signs placed in Pisces. Chiron, the wounded healer, helps us to become strong in overcoming the wounds of the past. Perhaps, it’s easier to think of “old” pain as a karmic script, which we are outgrowing with the passage of time in the Aquarian Age.

Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto form a T-square, which exerts pressure on the world. It brings a feeling of tension in the areas of good fortune, the quantum field/sudden change, and the hidden qualities of the underworld. It’s interesting because the energy comes and goes; it’s not consistent.

Jupiter (good fortune) squares (think tension) Pluto in Capricorn. Our ideals of balance, harmony, and good fortune will likely become rewritten by Pluto’s revelations from the underworld. It’s not a bad event, but it sometimes involves releasing our “happy” vision of the life and seeing through more realistic eyes. Jupiter also opposes Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and the aspect indicates our vision of happiness may need adjustment as we move more deeply into the Quantum Field. (It could simply involve stretching our vision to include miracles, rapid positive happenings, etc.)

Saturn (time, karma) in Sagittarius trines Uranus, which points to the possibility of creating a new structure in the mind, body, or life to overcome our limitations and move into a new zone of life. Saturn also squares Chiron (wounded healer), meaning our beliefs about the past and past pain must be mitigated to receive healing from Chiron’s influence.

Uranus is square Pluto in the influential aspect which has altered and changed so much of the world. For many, it’s meant stronger dedication to spiritual principles, deeper awakening, and devotion to the light.

In short, it’s important to move through the dreaminess and take real action, but action has to come from the heart and an inner desire for expansion. If/when the past comes into play, it’s possible to call on the light and surrender old patterns and thoughts for true healing.

We will definitely change our view of the inner/outer world in the coming months. The task may move more quickly if we consider the qualities of the soul and the universe—and imagine what life might become with more miracles and light. After all, it’s the substance of the quantum field.

7 Tips on Manifestation

 

Manifestation becomes increasingly important as we move into the New Age. Everyone is already manifesting their life, and life opens and expands when we consciously create by focusing on the images of our heart and inner self—as opposed to reflecting and amplifying the imagery of the people around us, the media, and mass consciousness. (Additionally, karma is mitigated as we “erase” old patterns and move into a higher space of being.)

  1. Manifestation responds to our light level. When we connect with all of our heart and from a place of love and light, the universe answers. It requires a commitment of the self to create a dream. (All dreams and desires should aid ourselves and the world by raising the frequency of the world around us.)
  2. Desiring greater abundance, happiness, peace, and success come for the soul. The inner self longs for expansion and expression; it thrives on positive change. By understanding the placement of the desire as an expression of the inner self, it can be easier to commit to the practical aspects of the work, which include meditation, visualization, and devotion—and many small changes in physical world.
  3. Awakening heightens the desire to manifest. It opens awareness to the negative inner dialog and conflicting emotions, which repress all deep desires. It gives access to the heart where love and dreams abide. The heart opens and flourishes, expressing greater love as the process ensues.
  4. The process is quickened by “experiencing” the desire. We substitute the domain of the desire for the current experiences of life. For example, we might see ourselves in a large, beautiful home while washing dishes or looking in our closet. We might imagine perfect health when it’s difficult to complete specific exercises or complete a long walk. We can see great abundance when viewing our bank account.
  5. Our overall frequency is heightened by the “work”. If we turn to the universe for help, open our hearts, and see a better reality, we tune into a higher broadcast of energy that eventually supersedes our current experience of life.
  6. Believe in the power of the universe to amplify and create desires. Communicate and cooperate by seeing the manifestation in great detail, accompanied by happy, calm emotions. (Everything in the physical world has a specific appearance, weight/height, density, and sensation. Add this to the overall equation.)
  7. Keep the silence. Desires manifest more quickly when we remain quiet. Other people affect our desires with their emotions and thoughts, which can limit their manifestation. (This practice teaches thinking before speaking, which is an important “human” lesson.)

The Toltec Art of Dreaming with Don Jose Luis

donluis

 

Don Miguel Ruiz, best-selling author of The Four Agreements, is a nagual of the Eagle Knight lineage who has passed his knowledge on to his son, Don José Luis. Here, Don José Luis speaks about the three basic skills — awareness, stalking, and intent — that a warrior develops in order to transcend the realm of the ordinary, and their esoteric application to dreaming.

Julia: What is the difference between Toltec dreaming and some of the Western teachings regarding lucid dreaming?

Don José: Dreaming is a big Being, and we are married to Dreaming. All of life is a dream. We are a walking mirror.

God is a mirror — everything we think, feel, or believe is reflected back to us through this great mirror that is life. The world is a mirror that reflects back to us all that we believe. The world does not create what we are experiencing. We do that.

We create our beliefs, and the mirror of God reflects them back to us. God can send us only love and beauty. We create the distortions in this mirror of our life that is so short — and so beautiful.

There is an exercise I like to use with mirror work:

Put a candle in front of a mirror and look at yourself in the mirror. Look at the image as though it is a person you have never seen, and think about this person. It is the only person who is completely loyal to you and who totally loves you. When you think about your image in this way, it will help you to pull out of the lies and move into love.

Julia: A shaman uses stalking in dreaming to find the weaknesses in his consciousness. How is the art of stalking used in Toltec dreaming?

Don José: Stalking is used in dreaming to find the mental and emotional images that prevent us from being free. When we dream, we must learn to discover in our dreams the forms or energies that limit us. They may repeatedly take the same form, or they may take different forms. They may appear in many different dreams, or just one dream that reoccurs.

We must dream with the purpose of stalking, to try to stalk who is within ourselves and see what our beliefs are. We primarily stalk two things in dreaming: thinking (what is in the head) and heartbreak.

By heartbreak, I mean the incredible pain we feel from the terrible things that have happened to us. When we feel the pain of heartbreak, we close off parts of ourselves. In some way, we stop living. If the same situation comes up again, we say, “Oh, no, I won’t let myself be hurt again!”
But this is no way to live.

Life is so short and so incredibly beautiful. It is such a gift. You must forgive yourself for experiencing heartbreak. You must love the heartbreak in your life, because it is part of living. Most importantly, you must create a better dream.

We also stalk to find the thoughts that keep us chained in “reality.” These thoughts that we think so many times limit us. If we can identify these limiting thoughts, we can pull the energy back from their mental patterns and create anew.

It is so important to take back these lost energies and share with the world the gifts given to us from the angels and God. Heartbreak and limiting thoughts are like a cage. They keep us caged, imprisoned, in the three-dimensional world. The cage is created from the fear of being the Self, of being authentic.

Lies and fears about our Self are the forces that keep us in the cage—and they are not real. We must reclaim the key to our cage by pulling the energy back from our thoughts and our heartbreak. In this way, we become free.

Stalking in dreaming can be compared to opening gates. If a state of mind or heartbreak has been identified in dreaming, then we find the opening point of the wound, or the judgment, and we go in our memory to the point just before it occurred. When we remember the time before the memory occurred, we find a closing point for the wound — and then we go a little further back in time, so we can avoid returning to the wound.

Now we can see an entirely different world, or movie. We have created a better dream. It is possible to use this technique to open a gate and see a different view.

Julia: Can you explain a little more about using stalking to create a better dream?

Don José: Again, until we are free, heartbreak and thinking will always appear in our dreams. This is because life is nothing but a reflection of ourselves and our memories.

One way of using stalking with heartbreak is to relive all the heartbreak in your life. Take one incident at a time and imagine that you are pulling all of the energy out of that terrible experience. Imagine it over and over until you can feel nothing when you watch images in your mind.

Then take the experience and “dream” a whole different reality. See your life moving in a different direction, a wonderful dream, with a happy experience in place of the heartbreak.

See the way that you want to live, as opposed to how you have been living. It is possible to do this with all of your life.

For example, let’s say there is a teenage girl who has a beautiful voice. She goes about singing with this exquisite voice, and the birds answer her. Everyone pauses to hear her. Then one day her mother tells her, “Stop singing. You have an ugly voice.”The girl stops singing, and the world is deprived of the beauty of her gift.

She could imagine, in place of her heartbreak, that the experience with her mother never occurred — or that she told her mother that she was wrong. Then she must see herself singing during those lost years, and in the present and the future.

It is so ironic. We listen the most to the ones we think love us the most, and so often they do not know us at all. These people that we think love us don’t even know themselves, so they cannot possibly know us. And yet we lose our gifts and powers to these people.

An exercise I use with group dreaming is called “Mirror Mitote.” You imagine that the voices in your mind are like the sounds in a supermarket, where we can hear other people talking very loudly and we have trouble focusing.

The mind reflects this kind of environment. We hear the voices and opinions of others when we don’t believe in ourselves. The voices become very loud. We have to learn to look at our beauty, and see the opinions as lies.

Julia: I remember reading about recapitulation in Castaneda’s books. How does that relate to dreaming?

Don José: Recapitulation is more like daydreaming. We use recapitulation during our waking hours to review our limitations, our fears and heartbreak. We review experiences that keep us in limitation until those experiences become like a ghost town, until visiting them is like going to a village that used to be alive and is now gray and old with no one in it.

Before recapitulation, the memory may have been vivid — you could hear all the characters speak, and you reacted to them. But now the memory, or the town, is empty. There is no emotional or mental response. You have recaptured all energy from that moment, from that time in your life. It doesn’t have the same flavor or taste. It is flat.

Detachment is a principle point to achieve. Whenever we are living in our opinions, we are in judgment of our Self or other people. We are seeing only our own expectations or limitations. Doubt is also a lie that inhibits intent.

Even our names are a lie. Have you ever thought of that? All of our lies, opinions, and judgments keep us caged inside the body. All limitations come from fear. We must detach from our fears.

When we achieve detachment, we pull the energy out of the lies in our lives, and it goes back into the assemblage point.

Julia: What is the assemblage point? How does it affect dreaming?

Don José: The assemblage point is our point of focus. It is one of the keys to dreaming. It is exactly like a television with many channels. You can choose any channel, and anything might be on that channel — wrestling, a sad love story, the news… Our assemblage point is like a vortex of perception, an altar that opens us to experience. We can expand or reduce that perception.

Everyone thinks of something as they fall asleep. I do not care what people say — everyone thinks of some incident, person, or place. And as they fix their minds, they are focusing their assemblage point. People do this in real life when they go into a theater to watch a sad movie. What happens when they come out? They are sad or crying. Why? The emotional state changes because they have shifted their assemblage point to experience sadness.

When we can pull all of the energies of our life back into the assemblage point, we begin to become free.

We can focus the assemblage point on any channel. But we are accustomed to focusing on the channels we have learned through our life’s memories and the channels that are familiar to the mass consciousness.

We have to learn to change our perceptions from our reason, which is composed of our objective thoughts, to our Will. When we will the dream, our personal power changes from the mental construct to spiritual perception. When we are free from the cage of the mind, our energy increases dramatically, and we can discover our true identity.

It takes faith, strength, and tenacity to learn to change the focus of the assemblage point through intent. It also takes patience. Intent is faith — it is believing in our magic more than we believe what we think we see in the mirror called life.

The Buddha turned arrows into flowers. He understood the dream. Intent is a silent knowing that we are the creator of the dream.

A true master knows that anything is possible. He no longer doubts. And everyone can be a master. Everyone can create an incredible life through the magical part of the Self, and dreaming is a vehicle to do so.

Julia: When we begin to dream with intent, how does this change our lives?

Don José: We become free of expectation and limitation. We are no longer bothered by the opinions of the mass consciousness. Our desire or intent for freedom becomes so strong that we dream it and live it.

When heartbreak occurs, we begin to see that it is illusion. We are able to say, “That was a good one, that illusion almost tricked me. But I won’t fall for it.”

We realize that all of the “bad” things that have happened in our lives are just that — stories that we tell to ourselves and to whomever will listen. We stop letting our stories hurt us. We learn to take the energy back from the story and end it in a different way.

You see, we are always doing one of two things: We are either creating, or we are living lies. When we are creating, we start to have faith, love, and gratitude. We say “thank you” to the Earth and God for everything.

We learn to speak in the true language of feelings or emotions, rather than opinions and words. We begin to create our dream through the good feelings and happy thoughts that we have. This leads us to God. Through the clear channel of the Self that is created, many miracles happen, like the flowers that the Buddha created. This makes us fall in love with living.

Love of life is contagious. When we are not affected by illusions, we can create, and we can help other people find love in living.

A good analogy is to look at both dreams and life as a vacation or a movie. It is best to plan our vacation, to drive the correct vehicle, to make reservations, to choose the right geography. Or we can make a great movie if we plan or create it. If we don’t create or plan, then obstacles occur. The obstacles could be compared to the illusions of the mind. But if we have created carefully, we make the most beautiful movie imaginable.

This is how it is to live on Earth. We can travel blindly through the obstacles of our thoughts and emotions, or we can gather back the energy and create the dream. It is a catwalk between illusion and creating, but we must do our best to enjoy the gift of living. When we are capable of creating the dream, all of living becomes a Paradise on Earth.

It is all about spirituality and love. The angels are taking over the planet, little by little. We are all angels, and we have forgotten. We must let the flow of life within us live. We must remember that all of life is a dream, a movie — we can choose to watch a beautiful movie.

It is all beautiful if we can only remember.

Seeking Light

news_global

 

As the world shifts and changes, it’s wise to seek love and light. It’s also helpful to learn small, simple techniques that can raise our consciousness. By applying techniques and focusing our consciousness in a different (higher) direction, we progress more quickly on our path.

  • When we focus on light, the universe responds. When we contemplate light, we receive its support. When we desire awakening, the universe leads us into many experiences in the invisible world such as synchronicity, esoteric teachings, and subtle answers, which provide direction in life.
  • Universal direction comes when we connect with our soul. It may come from meditation, nature, animals, personal love, or creativity. If we recognize the “expansion”, we can create a great deal of good from this place—particularly with visualization.
  • Life responds to our visualizations, placement of consciousness, and attention. When we give attention to negative states or unwanted aspects of life, they expand. Conversely, positive thoughts and visualizations raise our vibration, creating the opposite. (It’s helpful to think of difficult areas of life as energy and to send light to them. We can also decide to see the solution as opposed to focusing on the problem.)
  • Self-observation is a wonderful tool for creating change. By observing our personal patterns, we learn to change the inner dialog (what we say to ourselves), focus on a positive outcome or different response, and ask the universe for help at a pivotal moment. By asking the universe for help, we essentially ask for new perceptions and insights in blocked or difficult areas of life. If we are open, small answers appear and coalesce.
  • By noticing happiness, beauty, positive feelings, and goodness, we automatically bring more of them into our lives. The placement of our consciousness attracts much of we experience in life, which means it’s possible to alter the current of our life by attuning our consciousness to a higher point. (Life moves very differently from this point.)

Energy

Everything is ultimately energy. Energy takes on a thousand shapes and forms. It responds to us.  (Our energy field also responds to others and the overall global field.) Over time, we learn how to interact with the resonance of specific energies. We also learn how to collect it through meditation, yoga (Tai Chi, etc), and cultivation of calm, peaceful emotion.

  1. It’s important to know everything is composed of energy. It takes form by its rate of vibration. On a human level, energy can feel dense and heavy when it is not in alignment with the inner self—or when we travel through resistance. It tends to feel light and supportive when we are aligned.
  2. The energy of the planet shifts rhythmically, causing the experience of highs and lows. By aligning deeply with the inner self, we can stay centered as we travel through the energetic translation of a changing time. (The quality of energy, experienced at a particular point in time, may represent an influence of karmic patterns, geographical locations, mass consciousness, or other people.)
  3. Currently, we are working with the concept of balance. It’s important to stay balanced, centered, and grounded when the energy is continually shifting. It’s good to know our feelings and moods alter with the flow of the current of life. They don’t last forever and become less intense when we stay centered.
  4. It’s powerful to observe the flow of life. Through self-observation, we can note the places, people, and things that lift our energy field into a higher place. We can also note synchronicities and correct intuition. They give hints about our personal alignment. (What indicates your personal alignment?)
  5. If we are persistent and aligned with our spiritual quest, the energy in our personal field will eventually take on a higher form, reflecting abundance, alignment, health, and love

Simple Techniques to Alter Your Life

newsletter_heartsoul

Here are a few, simple techniques to alter your frequency and bring positive change into your life.
1) Spend two or three minutes imagining life as you would like to experience it. Feel the softness, happiness, and the loveliness of connection with the Divine. Imagine others responding positively to you and add happy events in the near future. See yourself living with a feeling of happy anticipation.
2) Identify the feeling of connection with the inner self. Deepen the feeling and imagine experiencing this sensation more often in the future, particularly with the realization of your desire.
3) Life is always better when you live at a higher vibration. A higher vibration includes more light from the inner self, a feeling of love, vitality, energy, and positive thought. A simple way of raising vibration is sending love (pink light) to every molecule of the room around you-and to yourself. (Light raises the frequency of everything. You could also imagine the room as brighter. The appearance of light increases frequency. Loving yourself alters your life.)
4) Reflect on the flow of life when everything moves smoothly with feelings of peace and happiness. By reflecting on the sensation, you pull it into your life. The practice works with any emotion. In our society, there’s a tendency to focus on negativity. Break the pattern and create joy!
5) Practice thinking and speaking positive thoughts. Notice the positive. See the positive when life moves in a negative direction. By placing your attention on the positive, you magnetize it into your life. Attention draws energy to a point of focus. (With thoughts, the focus comes from the placement of the mind.)
6) Learn to alter emotion. Emotions change many times in one day, particularly in response to new information. They also fluctuate with your body, reflecting sleeping and eating patterns as well as habitual reactions. All emotions are not real. (Focusing on pleasant emotions helps in raising vibrations, which can completely change a situation or difficulty. The level of your vibrations often affects how reality manifests.)
7) As strange as the energies are, they do support intuitive, mystical work. Use this time to develop and believe in your dreams. See good things for other people and send waves of peace and love often. (Sending light and seeing good things for others actually raises your frequency and helps with personal manifestations.)

You have a great deal more power than you know. Choose one exercise and practice it several times a day for a few weeks. You may feel surprised at the changes you can create.

Connecting with the Inner Self

news_meditation

 

There are many methods of moving into a mystical connection. Its value lies in universal support and the discovery of truth and laws, which are larger and more powerful than simple physical rules. The universe is infinite; it offers thousands of solutions (if we are open.)

We tend to accept limitation, smallness, and the constraints of time—mainly because we are programmed to believe in unhappiness and rules that support it. When we actively imagine, express, and experience a different reality from the space of the heart, a new reality embraces us. Sometimes, it brings impossibly beautiful answers.

  1. Seek out the mystical connection between the inner self and the universe on a daily basis. It doesn’t matter if it works or not. Compliment yourself for making the effort. Seeking is part of the answer.
  2. The universe works at a different rhythm from “ordinary” reality. When we think, feel, or hold a visual image, we shape life with its energy. It’s possible to ask to feel the right type of energy to create a desire, calm emotions, or see life differently. It’s also possible to ask for the feeling of an opportunity and to change the energy of the day into a higher frequency. (Creating a habit of seeing and feeling the opposite of a situation helps in altering the flow of events.)
  3. Consider the unknown. When we manifest, it’s much like putting together images, emotions, and thoughts into a visualization or feeling. The universe is much larger; it is filled with undiscovered goodness. It’s possible to ask for the goodness of the unknown—the great mystery—to flow into your life. Contemplating the unknown brings expansion, which is associated with spiritual growth.
  4. Sometimes, situations do not initially bend to visualization. They may involve the development of boundaries, seeing life from a different perspective, or going in a different direction. In this case, there is often a new vision, understanding, or new field of discovery.
  5. Sending light and healing to others develops your capacity to access the inner self. It’s good to practice daily. In time, others will feel it, and we will feel more universal love and light. Giving and receiving are related; it’s good to practice both at different times. (I find it useful to imagine receiving love through the heart chakra.)
  6. Notice how your reality responds to our efforts. The bird songs may change. Our pets may respond, or we may perceive a feeling of harmony. Sometimes, there is an appearance of more light. Notice how life changes when sensing a connection.
  7. Take time to notice your work. It’s easy to become discouraged if we don’t pay attention to the good results of our small intuitions and intentions. When we notice how the universe is works with us, it’s encouraging. We want to move more deeply into the mystical world because your experiences carry us to a higher point.

NOTE: It’s through our mystical connection that we create a new and better life. If we don’t create through the inner self, we either repeat the past or create through the vision of the lower self. When we project the feeling of the inner self, visualize our heart’s desires, and connect with the universe, we have happy results!
