Working with Light

 

Light and love are always the answer. They hold the highest vibrations on the planet. If we call on the light, the universe answers. But it’s easier to access “light” by using specific techniques.

Light responds differently with specific situations and meditations. These brief exercises work well for a variety of a problems, including receiving more enlightenment and understanding. When we see and feel life differently, it often alters into a higher vibration—and brings more positive outcome.

 

Here are a few tips.

  1. Come to center and find inner self on a daily basis. Meditation helps in finding the true self. From this place, wisdom, self-love, and peace flow. The answer is in the center; it feels simple and true when you find it. (It’s easiest to call in the light by becoming still. It’s helpful to pull inward to feel the inner self. )
  2. Put your attention on happiness. Happiness—like all inner states—requires attention and contemplation. (It’s actually a habit.) Notice all of the things, which bring happiness in your life. Listen to your voice to see if it conveys happiness. Notice your feelings when you look at objects, read emails, or travel short distances. Make a conscious effort to expand and find happiness throughout the day.
  3. Peace acts like a river; it eases and soothes emotion. There are no thoughts when we align with peace, only stillness. Imagine experiencing peace before/after others attempt to pull us into drama. (As our energy level heightens, others try to pull you into their drama. By detaching from their drama and visualizing a happy outcome, we can return to place of peace.
  4. Know that life moves in a cyclical pattern, marked by highs and lows. The challenge lies in finding and observing the pattern, altering emotions, and making “center” or the true self more important than the feelings and situation.
  5. Conflicting thoughts comprise part of spiritual growth. It’s how we put ourselves together and resolve the many parts of the self. When the answer comes, it will be simple. It will resonate with the inner self. Until this time comes, notice the feelings. It’s okay to feel two, conflicting emotions and/or thoughts. Eventually, the thoughts do bring resolution and wholeness.
  6. Pull the mind away from upsetting thoughts and situations. Return to the heart. Practice meditation to return to center, then visualize a positive outcome in a place of stillness.
  7. Know the process is working, and the universe wants to help. While many of these tips and exercises are not logical, they follow spiritual law. Our visualizations thoughts, and emotions alter the course of life because they invoke—and the most  powerful part of our inner being.

10 Reasons to Manifest More!

 

Manifestation means consciously creating our life with an intention, visualization, and an accompanying feeling. The intention is the desire, which comes from the inner self. A visualization is composed of a crystal clear image, accompanied by a feeling representing the sensation of connection.

The sensation of connection is described as peace, love, fulfillment, or grace. Everyone has different words for it, but it is also the feeling of the heart—the opening of space to experience the universe, the One and All.

  1. It’s important because manifestation teaches how we hear, see, and feel our soul. It teaches differentiation between everyday life and the spiritual world. It gives hope, grace, and an amazing energy, which can be shared with others and the world.
  2. Love is the fabric of manifestation. If we create with the inner self, we must move into love by guiding it into form. (We exchange the old, erratic energy of negative creations for love when creating positive manifestations.)
  3. We become more conscious when we actively create. We are already creating subconsciously, but our tendency is repetition—and not always in a happy way. Positive visualizations and the development of a happier feeling actually raises our frequency. Life flows more smoothly from with a positive frequency.
  4. Awareness of our current process of creating soars when we hold positive images. Awareness is part of higher consciousness. When we are aware of how it feels to move out of higher consciousness, we can alter it. We begin to understand it’s not just life or other people. (Sometimes, it is other people and mass consciousness. But we can do something about it!)
  5. Successful manifestation comes from an universal connection. Positive manifestation comes from the inner self and source. It brings feelings of love, grace, and generosity. It moves us into a place of peace.
  6. We learn to trust and believe when we see our dreams and desires in material form. It’s easy to trust and believe when we see a manifestation in physical form. Also, there is that amazing rush of love!
  7. The beauty of the experience is a catalyst for creating good in the world. When we overcome fear, step into our heart felt desires, and see and feel the result of manifestation, we want it for everyone.
  8. Our awareness of universal laws is heightened. When we act on hunches, intuitions, and signs, we become more open to universal motion. We seek more experience and understanding.
  9. The universe opens us to new people, experiences, and heightened awareness. We feel, see, and sense more. We also sense more of the invisible world. The universe leads us into new situations and understanding.
  10. We understand that answers come from the inner self and the universe. This calm connection leads to self-realization and enlightenment. It also shifts the outcome in the material world.

More Details

Manifestation begins with the desire to create a better life—and believing the universe wants to create it with us.

Stay with the thought of happy fulfillment along with a feeling of peace and love. It can take time to work through patterns and realistically envision the desired life. It’s a process, requiring patience and devotion.

It’s important to know the universe is powerful. As the connection grows stronger, the manifestation takes form—and life changes by moving into a higher frequency. We gain in light and love.

  • Begin with a 5-10 minute daily practice.
  • See the desired visualization several times each for a minute or two.
  • Focus on the feeling of relief, peace, and fulfillment after the manifestation is achieved.
  • Know periods of oscillation (up and down) occur. It’s natural.
  • Reflect on the universe and the power of connection.

Small, Simple Changes

Small steps practiced throughout the day raise consciousness and allow us to see life from a higher perspective. They also raise our vibration, making it easier to function happily and peacefully in a changing world.
  1. Dreaming with faith is very important; it’s how we express our inner light. It’s also how we shape the substance of energy in life. Practice visualization of  the desired future each day.
  2. When negative (global  or personal) events occur, come to center. Focus on the heart space, a beautiful pink circle in the center of the chest. The heart is the center of the chakra system, and the universe “picks” up on the vibe, offering both light and protection. When connection occurs, send light and love to the situation and/or person.
  3. When we choose the inner self, we automatically move into a higher vibration. Higher vibrations displace lower vibrations. When we focus on love and peace, the emotions flow through every level of our consciousness; they flood body, mind, and soul. (This teaches persistence and devotion because the impact and level of higher emotion increases with significant work.)
  4. It ‘s helpful to focus on the possibility of a positive outcome in all situations. It doesn’t always create change, but positive energy helps any situation. (Negative energy increases the problem.)
  5. In quiet moments, see the beauty of the world. Focus on a flower, tree, the sun, or moon. (Focusing on beauty expands our perception of life, and it increases loveliness in the outer world.) Nature heals body and soul.
  6. The energy continually oscillates; it moves up and down. One day, everything is fine. The next day, it’s strange or exhausting. A few days later, it’s fine. (On the lower energy, negative patterns usually come to light. On the high energy days, we experience hope and happiness. In addition to learning about energetic patterns, we learn to conserve our own energy and observe how we use it in the flow of life. (Balance is an important part of the new paradigm.)
  7. Remember the decision to move into light and awakening. Return to it several times each day. This increases our resolve and helps with placement of consciousness.

Raise Your Vibration, Change Your Life

By raising your vibrations, you can always change how you feel. You may not have the ability to change the situation or other people, but you can alter how it feels. Learning how to alter vibrations is a keystone of spiritual work. When you feel differently, people respond more positively to you. 
Life becomes softer and more peaceful, and the flow of life moves in sync to your higher vibration. Over time, you find that you can change many events in life by using the techniques, which you master through the work.

Here are a few simple suggestions:

  1. Connecting to your inner self and the “light” helps with everything because your frequency (or vibrations in your energy field) become higher. People respond differently. You perceive new solutions, and you feel more peace and contentment. A higher frequency equals better results in daily life (reality.)
  2. Reality alters to match the vibrations in your energy field. When you see an event positively, your perspective changes. It can take time to raise your projection of an event, relationship, or outcome, but this works. Change your perception and change the outcome.
  3. When you can’t change the outcome, you can image sending color or calm energy. Love is easily sent by imagining pink light. You can send it to you, the molecules surrounding you, or a situation. Moving into love and turning events over to the universe often brings resolution. (Accept the resolution and decide you have the strength to move through the situation.)
  4. Focus on the good in your life. You’re alive. You are loved. You have a spiritual connection (or you wouldn’t read this.) You have the ability to change your life. This is powerful knowledge, and few people ever arrive at this place.
  5. Believe in your ability to change your life. Believe in the universe. Know there are spiritual forces such as angels, light, and other people who support and believe in you. Find friends who focus on solutions, take a course, or find a coach. Do something. (Meditating is an action, too.)

Meditation:

  • Meditation is one of the keys to the process. Close your eyes and feel your inner self. (When we don’t think, see, or feel anything, we feel the inner self. We also pull back our energy from life.) If you stay in this space for ten minutes, you will feel the inner self. It feels wonderful and peaceful. This part of the self holds the answers. Commune with it quietly.
  • Hold and feel a visual of what you want to experience. If you want happiness and peace, see yourself in this state. If you feel hopeless, create an image of opportunities flowing into your life. If you’re angry, imagine feeling peaceful. Refuse negative thoughts (about anything) and hold onto your visual for 30 seconds. The “new” energy will eventually replace the old energy.
  • Think about love. Love is the one of the key components of the universe. We are loved unconditionally by the universe. Pink light is also love. We can send pink light to our projects, our body, and the people in our lives. Light and love are higher vibrations. Everything in the universe responds to love and light. As you hold more love and light in your “field”, the universe responds more quickly!

Working with the “Wave”

 
In metaphysics, the wave can refer to water signs and emotion, or it can refer to oscillation–the motion between the new reality and the old one.  Emotions occur as the result of an oscillation or movement between thought and physical sensation in the material world.
 
Metaphysics teaches us to pay attention to the heart and the inner voice when life is smooth–and when it is turbulent. By paying attention to the moment, we can observe life and deepen our connection because life moves in patterns of up and down—creating the sensation of duality.
Working with the energies of the shift from the old to the new world involves dealing with oscillation, which occurs within ourselves. If we can observe the motion by connecting with our inner self, it ceases. We progress on our spiritual path. (Transforming and raising our vibrations requires practice and patience, but it is worth the work!)
Tips:
1) When life moves easily, it’s good to expand the energy outwardly into the present and the near future. It’s also helpful to “see” good things for others and project a better, happier world. (Scientific experiments prove “seeing” good for others brings healing and positive energy into our lives.)
2)  When the emotional/mental waves are at a lower point, it’s helpful to know they will pass more quickly when we tap into the spiritual self. We can replace lower thoughts with positive thoughts; we can substitute a positive emotion for a lower one. (We do this by meditating on peace, harmony, joy, or the feeling of a higher vibration.)
3) It’s helpful to know emotions are contagious. We may pick them up from mass consciousness, other people, or locations with a lower frequency. We also receive lower vibrations when listening or reading (simultaneously) about negative events. Often, the feeling will pass when we know it doesn’t originate from the self.
4) Positive emotions occur at higher frequencies, and negative emotions occur at lower frequencies. It’s helpful to raise personal frequency by envisioning pink light, asking how it feels when connected with the inner self, or spending time in nature.
5) It’s important to discern if negative emotions occur because we are glimpsing an undesirable truth about a person or situation, seeing through a personal pattern, or seeing life in a light, which may not feel uncomfortable (yet.) In this case, rest, remove the mind from the problem, and gently reflect. Ask for help from the universe in discerning the answer.
6) The inner self always has a vision of a beautiful life, and angels are always around us. The “invisible” world (or quantum field) is said to be more real than visible world. It answers when we call on it—and when we’re ready to change.
7)  When we observe a thought or emotion, it becomes quieter. The inner self generates positive emotions and thoughts. It delivers peaceful answers. By putting our consciousness in this place, life changes. (This is also true about the outer world, and this practice can help in finding right action.)
8) Many teachings speak of “low” and “high” points as storms and rainbows. We think storms are difficult, and rainbows signal a time of abundance. Both are illusions on the path on life. Beyond the illusion is the path of light. If we remain on the journey, we find (and become) the light.

Embracing Light

 

When we focus on light, the universe sends more light. When we contemplate light, we begin to understand how it works and lends support. When we desire awakening, the universe leads us into many experiences in the invisible world such as synchronicities, esoteric teachings, and subtle answers, which provide direction in life.

Universal direction comes when we take time to 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 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.)

By observing our personal patterns, we can alter them by changing the inner dialog (what we say to ourselves), focusing on a positive outcome or different response, and asking the universe for help. By asking the universe for help, we essentially ask for light and new perceptions of our problems. If we are open, small answers appear and coalesce.

Here are a few tips:

  1. When the focus is on awakening, we turn to the infinite source of energy, the universe. When we are connected to the inner self, we have more energy and enthusiasm about life. Essentially, we experience a rebirth through inner connection.
  2. It’s good to review our positive changes by noticing greater awareness, sensitivity, and intuitive changes.  We experience more of the object of our attention. (Life responds to attention and focus.)
  3. It’s helpful not to think we don’t want “something” in our lives. It’s better to visualize a positive change and act on it. It’s also positive to think of difficult areas in life as energy. We simply work to change and alter the energy.  (Energy can be changed through color, sound, or visualization. Our energy moves into a higher vibration when we use these techniques.)
  4. By noticing happiness, positive feelings, and goodness, we create more of them. When we focus on the good in life, we encounter more of it. (Experiment:  While waiting in line, focus on one good thing about a stranger and see how they respond. It may take one or two tries, but you’ll receive a positive response.)
  5. Make positive wishes and visualize often. When we see results clearly in our mind, we create them. Believe in the power of the inner self, which always perceives the beautiful, amazing side of life.

Finding Stillness

 

Meditation brings a point of connection with the universe—the divine stillness. Everything ceases its motion in the exchange between our human self and soul. Beauty pours into our awareness. Physical sensations calm, and emotions become joyful as thought ceases. The illusion ends temporarily along with the sensation of cascading from one task to another. Light fills our countenance, altering and smoothing our vibrations and moods.

The stillness refers to an illuminated state, the search for light and a response from the universe. With practice, the energetic exchange can come on a daily basis—giving insight and inspiration to our daily lives. In the stillness, the heart speaks with soft voice. It provides gentle guidance, which often feels like positive preferences or inclinations to move through life more softly (a slower pace.) From this point, emotions and thoughts become quiet. Intuition grows like the soft light of dawn, illuminating the passage of our spiritual quest.

Often, we can feel the answers within us—even if we lack the knowledge of “how” to find the way. By meditating on the feeling of the calm (and unknown) answer, we find our way. We learn to substitute calm for agitation and how to push away negative thoughts and emotions until we find our true understanding about them. The stillness usually gives a feeling before it brings an answer. By meditating on the feeling, we essentially ask for more knowledge about the answers.

The same is true with gifts. We find our gifts by taking one step at a time toward the illumination of the true self and following our passion instead of pushing it away. There is also a quality of trust. It’s important to trust the information received in meditation and to believe in our power to bring it to fruition.

Life involves a dance between the True Self and the Not Self (the part of us that lives life in a way that we don’t like.) Meditation on the still point leads us into discovering our true feelings and preferences so we can take proper action. It also reveals the peaceful, joyful feelings of the true self, which are always present if we stay with our work—even when it takes longer than we would like.

Tips:

1)      It’s helpful to recall the state of connection before meditating.

2)      When emotions are wild or discordant, acknowledge it. Imagine pink or light blue light pouring into your emotions and the perception of your problem. Focus on how you feel when life goes well.

3)      Trust your ability to tap into the stillness and find answers.

4)      Observe when the mind chatters or focuses on problems. Problems often change when we admit our real feelings and involvement.

5)      Believe in your power to commit to change.

6)      Imagine your life moving in a peaceful flow.

7)      It’s a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. Energy vacillates. You will experience highs and lows. It’s part of the human condition. Send love to lows and give gratitude for breakthroughs.

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.
