An Alternative Method of Peace

Barbara Marciniak said, “You must learn to end the wars in your world by ending them in your mind.”  It feels logical to proceed by embracing peace within our mind and heart. Thought and emotion are known to impact the energetic field, and they are measurable in quantum science. (Everyone has been affected positively and negatively by another person’s emotions or thoughts.)

Peace is a state of mind, which occurs within the stillness of the inner self. It is a higher frequency—a set of vibrations emitted by the inner self.  In general, it is accompanied by a set of feelings, sensations, and a specific visual. When we connect with the inner self, there is an absence of conflicting thought. It is the state associated with stillness—an alignment with the heart.

In this space of connection, we encounter universal concepts such as peace, love, harmony, and joy. In general, the concepts are similar for everyone, but we color them with individual sensations and visualizations. From a place of stillness, it is possible to project a personal vision of peace into the world around us.

In alchemy, it’s said that every particle of matter is composed of light. Matter responds to higher frequencies and changes its shape. (This is seen in cymatics as well as Masaru Emoto’s work with water.) At any rate, mind over matter has been demonstrated many times.

Harmonious vibrations—which are free from duality—can affect physical matter. These vibrations could be described as higher frequencies, which are generated and received by people who are capable of perceiving and projecting them. When a “higher” visualization or feeling is received and repeated throughout many energy field, it is naturally amplified. When many of us focus on our personal sensation of peace repeatedly, it eventually affects the overall energy—as well as the conceivable future.

Mahatma Ghandi thought a concept or movement was much more powerful when it promoted what it stood for rather than fighting against what it opposed. It is a non-dualistic view, based on a simple focus on a higher concept. (When we are connected to our inner self, there is no duality—only wholeness, which provides sensations, which flow from this place of being. By projecting those thoughts and feelings strongly, we affect the matter or physical world around us.)

Coming from a place of wholeness does not mean closing our eyes to the darkness in the world. But it does involve limiting judgement and refraining from deep discussions about wrongness on earth. That’s because negative people and places thrive on negative energy. It’s the best way of creating more of what we don’t want.

The Age of Aquarius focuses on group endeavors, collective consciousness, higher thought, and the quantum field. Higher thought comes when the mind is connected with the heart. It’s easy to identify those thoughts because they are clear, align with universal concepts, and often bring a feeling of softness and relief. More importantly, it’s possible to project those thoughts to others and to the world-at-large. It’s how the quantum field operates.

Tips:

  • Meditating on a personal feeling of peace is easier than seeing peace for the world. From place of connection, it is easily expanded and sent to others as well as geographical locations.
  • When we identify a strong sensation of peace for ourselves, we automatically vibrate it outward. (Change begins within personal world.)
  • It’s helpful to choose a color, symbol, or identify a specific energy as peace. The soul often reads energy in symbols. It can be sent to others.
  • Spend 5 or 10 minutes each day in meditation. In this place, there is no movement between polarities. There is only love and peace. Everyone can contribute to the effort in this way.
  • Avoid television, violence, and lower vibrations. Try to keep discussions focused on the positive and good changes within the world. (When something causes a strong upset or emotion, try Ho’oponopono or seeing the opposite of the situation.)
  • Work on eliminating personal judgement, particularly of friends, co-workers, and loved ones. It’s better to see the “good” in them and accept their place of being. And it’s more positive to work on personal peace. (Judgement causes movement between the higher and lower self.)
  • Create a personal vision of peace in the future and dwell on it occasionally.
  • With all metaphysical activity, we have to operate partially on faith while believing in the universe and our power to bring about change.

More About Manifestation

newsletter_nativeamerican

Manifestation is important because it teaches about how we perceive and live life. When we focus on a heart felt desire, we invoke the universe and the inner self.

  1. Everyone is already manifesting the material of their consciousness  through their experience of “reality.” We are limited by our perceptions and beliefs about life as well as the people in our lives; however, it’s possible to transcend those limits and create big, happy visions. Basically, this involves awakening and rewriting our inner script of beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. When we rewrite our perception of reality, it changes.
  2. Everyone wants financial prosperity, loving relationships, a healthy body, and a deep spiritual connection that provides accurate answers. Meditation and visualization can lead us to the right steps, and the practice completes much of the work on the invisible plane. (In other words, an occurrence or dream takes place much more quickly. We find the right job quickly instead of applying for ten. We visualize meeting the right people, and they appear.)
  3. Action is more effective when accompanied by meditation and visualization. It also requires less effort. Athletes and millionaires use these techniques of visualizing their desired reality in detail. The alteration in overall energy is even more profound when the visualization is prompted by a desire for connection with the inner self. Both practices create results, but universal connection alters everything in our lives.
  4. We meet our resistance within our self. We discover an opposite self, who doesn’t want the manifestation, takes steps in the opposite way, and wants to stay the same. We rewrite the “program” or pattern through visualization, observation, and learning to think and feel new thoughts and emotions. (We also learn to change our personal identity from the person who can’t to one who can.)
  5. Life becomes more exciting through these discoveries. As we learn to change lower patterns into patterns of success, we become enthusiastic about life. We naturally make small adjustments such as altering traffic, wishing good things for others, or seeing more beauty in life. (This changes our world—and the world around us.)
  6. Our vision of our reality and the world changes. We begin to understand how our ‘reality” responds to our thoughts and emotions. We also learn how to change our perception of life because we understand the seeing the “goodness” is part of what brings it into our lives.
  7. We naturally live on a higher vibration as a result of participating in manifestation. We begin to see problems as areas of life, which require a higher frequency, meditation, or inspired action. We also begin to “know” that other people are doing the same thing. It’s how we meet our True Self through meditation–and connect with others who align with the universe in the same beautiful way.

Simple Moments of Awakening

news_floatinwom

 

Over the past months, many of us have experienced moments of awakening—simple, profound, and peaceful. By increasing our awareness through reflection, we amplify the energy of inner reflection. By observing and noticing the flow of consciousness, we develop our inner skills.

It’s helpful to think of moments of awareness as glimpses of the inner self. Sometimes, oscillation—the wavelike motion from high to low—occurs, but it’s only temporary. The larger emotions of peace, joy, and connection will continue to develop.

1)      Feelings of overwhelming, unconditional love can come like a wave. We may also experience deep sensations of peace and faith about the future.  (Yes, it’s temporary, but contemplation of this state extends the pleasant inner realization.)

2)      Meditation becomes more expansive. The stillness is deeper. The presence of the universe is larger; the circuit becomes stronger. We begin to long for the state of connection. And it moves through us, shaping the hours with its presence.

3)      The river of love runs between us. Not everyone can go there, but it flows with loving communication when people are open. There is a spacious opening for exchange of thought and emotion—as the river of the individual and ocean of larger thought merge.

4)      Flashes of understanding about why we experience a pattern or problem. This is a state of observation, which occurs when the presence of the true self lends insight into an energetic pattern. It may not solve the problem, but it is a flash of awakening. (We may also feel a sudden distaste for our lower emotions or thoughts.)

5)      We experience the presence of the universe in nature, glimpse the true nature of others (or feel their heart space), recognize the directive of the universe or “feel” the energetic reasons for the direction—or lack of it—in our lives.

6)      Moments of deep knowing occur. We know the universe is supporting us. There is meaning beneath the strange flow of events and energy in the outer world. We feel still within, regardless of appearance and illusion.

7)      We can feel our inner feelings penetrate into the outer world. Our meditative peace may only exist for 5-10 minutes, but we can feel it vibrate out into the space around us—as the outer world positively responds. (Matter does respond to a spiritual state.)

We may only feel these states briefly, but they count. They are spaces in time when the inner self becomes apparent, merging into our everyday consciousness–as signals of deeper awakening.

NOTE: By directing these feelings into the visualization of a desire, life changes positively and more quickly.

More Abundance, Part II

news_global
Abundance is part of cosmic connection.
“Reality” responds to our inner thoughts and feelings. When we are connected with the inner self and the universe, our thoughts and feelings change. In general, energy flows into the physical, amplifying our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and sensations – in a positive sense.
Energy follows our frequency. Abundance responds to our thoughts and feelings.
The positive, peaceful energy of meditation flows best when we receive it with positive energy and thoughts. It often boosts creativity and awakens inner desires.
Abundance grows as a result of our inner work.
Raising personal frequency comes from inner connection, positive thoughts, and images–and a strong desire to create to something new and better in life.
1) Every physical and spiritual change requires meditative work as well as small, personal changes in the physical world. An initial step may involve savings or small purchases, thinking of money differently, or thinking about it in a new way. (It can also involve additional work and/or a new attitude about work.)
2) In spiritual work, it’s necessary to accept the moment (good and bad) while meditating joyfully on the desired change. Accept the moment and bless its goodness while continuing to see a “better” reality. With abundance, a desired change should include positive (but reasonable and practical) material shifts, an increase of ease in life, and some form of spiritual application (study, classes, self-development) – as well balanced generosity.
3) It’s important to bless the appearance of answers – even when they are not exactly correct. It may appear that the desired job is on the horizon or money is on the way, but it doesn’t manifest. Give thanks for the appearance and continue to visualize. (It’s a sign of the universe taking note – an indication of the coming of the fulfilled desire.)
4) Take note of when/where/how visualizations work and/or don’t manifest. Give particular attention to these areas. Create new images, feelings of excitement, and the sensation of relief and gratitude associated with success. Don’t give up. Practice more.
5) It can take time to create through meditation and visualization. It’s a practice, not a temporary answer. When a small dream is realized, visualize a larger one. Recreate your dream consistently and visualize it often. (The power of this practice can be utilized in many areas of life. )

Spiritual Stability in a Time of Change

newsletter_tree4

 

Here are a few tips for staying aligned.

  1. All spiritual work leads to a state of love and light. Love and light illuminate life. They allow you to see the truth without judgement (love), teach boundaries, and self-love. Light actually lifts your life into a higher frequency.
  2. Living in duality involves lower and higher emotions and thoughts. (Problems are actually the material of self-transformation.) It’s okay to feel discouraged, emotional, or experience lower emotions, but it’s important to learn how to lift yourself in a higher vibration. Learning how to lift yourself into a higher vibration is part of self-mastery. (Meditate, exercise, focus on the inner self, or see the beauty of life.)
  3. Stay with your heartfelt desires. They are a gift from the universe. Visualize them in completion and imagine the joy and relief, which come from realized dreams. Recognize your power to bring them into form. (Every repetition takes you closer to your dreams–OR to a different dream, which is more closely aligned with your inner self. Heart felt desires involve win/win.)
  4. Commit to your higher self. Realize it is the voice and light in the darkness. Through this part of self, there are answers, grace, and release from earthly problems.
  5. Recognize your progress, honestly access your weaknesses, and see a better version of you on a daily basis. It’s helpful to project happiness and success into the next day before falling into sleep. You can send love to others, see peaceful relationships, and ease in place of difficulty.

All of these small practices yield big results. Visualizing your desire teaches the ability to quickly “see” solutions for yourself and others. Practicing meditation every day leads to a strong connection with the inner self—and develops intuition. Persevering through good and bad days leads to strength and power.

It’s important to know that spiritual energy makes you more sensitive to energy and life. As you develop, you may have stronger responses and/or new perceptions. By paying attention to several factors–including time of day, person, and geographic location–you can learn a great deal about your inner self and energy in general.

Forgive mistakes, incorrect perceptions, judgments, and mistakes. When life moves strangely, ask for connection with higher energy. See yourself aligning with positive forces. Put effort into your spiritual practice and prepare for positive change!

Experiencing Inner Connection in the Outer World

intuitive

 

With half of the planets in a retrograde position, it’s important to focus on creating a deeper connection with the inner self while working in the outer (physical) world. The outer world offers many distractions, but we can use simple tasks to raise our consciousness by looking inward to test our level of connection.

When we are connected, life exudes flavor, depth, and elusive quality of mystery. When we find connection in all aspects of life, we gain a great deal of freedom. Metaphysics refers to this practice as finding the “plumb” line, the center of energy, which aligns with the heart space.

Here are a few tips:

1) When you remember to look for the light in everything (people, events, objects) and see the “good”, life responds to your energy. When you remember the inner self—and your power to project positive outcomes—life expands the vibration. The good finds you. (If you’re working with negative patterns take note of them. Observe and project a happier pattern for the future.)

2) Remember the reason for your work. If it comes from the heart, it’s worthy of consistent effort and light. If you don’t love your work, you can radiate light and love to it. The higher vibration eventually brings in a different venue or situation. (Think about what you love or like most about your work and imagine success.)

3) Part of spiritual work involves the unseen world. Sometimes, you can’t see the results immediately. it can take time or happen instantly. It’s helpful to realize you are working with the universe, which desires “good” and wonderful things for you. When you wait for a change, you often make realizations, alter your visualization, or become very consistent in your practice. Often, the changes are happening long before they come info form. (Keep going.)

4) When the inner and outer life are connected, you experience a different type of energy with focus and concentration. There is a feeling of engagement or a “click” when the inner and outer lives connect. The world becomes quieter, and you feel directed by the “all.” There is a beautiful flow. The mind clears, and the events in life feel less overwhelming. The energy around you increases its frequency. (This is an excellent time to engage in visualization and project your desires into the world.)

5) You will move in and out of a connected state. It’s normal. You can return to your inner self by focusing on the heart, imagining pink light (love), or remembering your purpose (the importance of your light and love in the world.) By learning more about the cause of the distractions, the people, conversations, and thoughts, you can find your inner connection more easily.

6) Bring your spiritual essence into everyday task by becoming completely present. Focus on your hands and feet. Notice the graceful motions of your body. See the task completed as you work. Take a few minutes to breathe and rest before launching into the next task.

5)The universe wants to connect with you by sharing its power, light and goodness. When you meditate or visualize, you open the door for the connection to take place. After your practice, you can invite more of the universe into your life. It’s helpful to ask questions. What would it feel like if I connected more deeply with the universe? How would my life change?

5 Ways to Find Your Inner Power

newsletter_colorswirl

 

These are simple steps, which work well with practice.Practicing on a daily basis is the best way of finding inner power, but you can jump in with any of these exercises.

1) Believe in your power to connect with the infinite “good”, which is sometimes known as the akashic field. It is larger than you, holds the answers, and can connect you into a wonderful place. It’s linked with your inner power to change your life. (Changes do not always come as you wish, but they do always create a better life for you.)

2) Recall times of connection when life flowed into place, and you felt a marvelous energy lifting you above your “normal” experiences. When you are in this place, you locate new answers, people react differently, and the process of life takes on new meaning. There is a sensation of fulfillment. (You don’t have to find it “now.” Simply meditating on the feeling can bring in a change.)

3) Meditate outdoors. Nature feels the connection and amplifies it because she is in harmony with the divine. It’s particularly beautiful when the trees and wind move with your breath. It brings a lovely, peaceful feeling.

4) Visualize what you want to experience as opposed to what you don’t want. It’s human nature to focus on the negative which only creates more of the undesirable. It’s fun to think of yourself as a superman/woman with the power to shift the direction of life from negative to positive.  It’s possible to alter your life through visualization–and to bring your dreams into physical form.

You can also focus on the feeling of your soul (happiness, joy, comfort) and project this into the present and the future. Your soul knows what you should experience and feel. Besides, few things feel better than this.

5) The last step is a bit different. All of these exercises alter your frequency to a higher place, but you can also become totally present. You can put your awareness in your body, observe your thoughts and feelings, and give thanks for the human experience.

Everything on earth passes through cycles. We feel highs and lows as well as positives and negatives. When we accept this as the human experience, it often fades away. It’s also helpful to learn when your lower emotions and thoughts pass through your consciousness. When you understand the catalyst, the length of time, and cycle, patterns change more quickly and take on a new, higher form.
