Moving into More Love

 

Everyone wants more love. When you connect with the love “frequency”, you receive more of it. When you think about awakening, you automatically connect with energetic waves, which give the feeling of love. When you open your heart, you receive more light and love from the universe.

It’s interesting to realize how the placement of consciousness affects your experience. For example, when you think about light, you receive love. When you love yourself, it alters the flow of particles in your body and energy field. When you send love (pink light), it can alter relationships and bring healing. (Obviously, this type of work involves sincere feelings.) When you feel the love of another person, it speeds the motion of your molecules and creates more self-love.

  1. The ultimate source of light and love is the universe. It comes through meditation and contemplation—and by listening to the inner self. (You know when you find it because everything feels bright, beautiful, and still.)
  2. Finding universal love changes our perception of life. It reveals the inner self. You see, the inner self often differs from “who” you think you are. This part of the self feels life with a multiplicity of sensations. It speaks through intuition to lead you on your path.
  3. Finding the inner self means embarking on a passage of self-love. This involves boundaries, insights, loving the darkness within the self, and a willingness to see the truth. It also brings more love, compassion, and empathy. It’s a journey—not an immediate answer.
  4. The heart speaks more loudly as you step into love. It whispers about what you truly love, and it tells you about hurt and pain, which are sometimes hidden beneath the surface. You also become more vulnerable, and this means becoming brave.
  5. As you step into vulnerability, you begin to see how universal love heals. You can send light or love to others. You can hold a vision of healing for the world. You can send love, comfort, and compassion. You want to see abundance and success for others.
  6. Love teaches you about change, which may mean changing yourself. Perhaps, you learn to love your body or your life. Maybe, you speak more kindly or see the underlying light in everything. It leads to a shift into a higher state of being.
  7. As you learn more about love, you accept the human state of duality. You know the state of love shifts from one duality into another. Life provides the opportunity to shift sadness into happiness or loneliness to love, but you learn to rely on the beauty of your heart to bring you back into center–where the universe awaits.

NOTE: Everyone has moments of “not” feeling love. This can be useful if you are willing to see these dark places and moments as points, which offer the potential for change and growth. (Accept this as the part of you that longs for change, and send light to the feelings. Assume you have the ability to change the circumstances, thoughts, and feelings, which are associated with this state.)

5 Exercises for Positive Change and Increased Awareness

Image by Regina Allard

You can improve your life in a few days or weeks by repeating 1 or more of the exercises on a daily basis. As your emotions and thoughts alter, your life will change and move into a higher frequency.

True spiritual work is a short cut. The higher vibrations are more powerful than those encountered in daily life, and they have the potential to cut through karma (accumulated negativity and blocks) quickly. When you’re open to spiritual energy and free of old patterns, you have the freedom to create a better, happier life.

Here are the exercises. Feel free to edit and improvise.

  1. Focus on 4 or 5 happy memories. It’s best to choose memories that are associated with a time when you were in the flow of life and experiencing a sense of strong connection. Focus on each of the memories for about 30-60 seconds. After several practice periods, the happy feeling should stay with you for an hour or more. (This exercise is a personal favorite.)
  2. Think about what you like about yourself. Look at your accomplishments. Notice what you like about your body. Note your good qualities that you share with your friends, loved ones, and the world. Notice your light.
  3. Open your heart. Imagine a huge ray of beautiful pink light moving into your heart chakra. Feel your heart expand and accept the universal love. Contemplate the beauty of a boundless love and light that wants to support you and help you in life.
  4. Send light to your problems. Feel them fade away in the light. Notice the difference in how you feel about life. (You may feel more courage, ease, or calm.) Imagine a future version of yourself with the problem resolved.
  5. Become more aware of yourself. Focus your consciousness on your hands and feet while performing routine tasks. Feel your physical body. Become very present. Notice how awareness of the present moment and the physical world expands your consciousness and brings you into awakening.

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.

7 Ways to Increase Your Inner Power

 

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) Change your thoughts and emotions. Every problem is surrounded by repetitive and negative thoughts. (It’s easy to know when you’re experiencing them because your energy level changes.) Repetitive thoughts are accompanied by reactions. It’s important to create a new response. You can speak from your heart, ask what you can learn from the situation, or ask the universe to help you see it differently.

6) See the beauty in life. Take time to slow down, connect with yourself, and focus on finding the beauty and rhythm of life. When you become aware that life moves with a specific rhythm, which can be energizing, you align with the universe. When you align with the universe, the current experience of life will unfold and expand.

7) 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.

7 Tips for Manifesting

Image by Laura Borealisihttps

1) Everyone is already manifesting. The first step is realizing how your thoughts, emotions, and visual imagery affect your life. (You can look at the positive and negative aspects of your life.) Meditation naturally alters the flow of visualization as well as the direction of your thoughts and emotions. It softens negative emotions and opens the heart to love. Conscious visualization activates the energy needed to create a desire.

2) You become more powerful when you consistently meditate and actively visualize. Your meditation and visualization practices actually direct the particles of energy around you into form. (When we don’t consciously direct energy, it takes the form of your lower thoughts.) Your thoughts and emotions take form more quickly and easily when you meditate. You also accumulate or store energy, which makes it easier to navigate through life.

3) Your desires come from a higher source. This higher source (God or the universe) wants you to have prosperity, abundance, love, vitality, and a greater spiritual connection. Creating the positive in your life is part of stepping into your true identity. If you are consistently meditating, you learn how love is the magical substance, which transforms your life–and the world.

4) Creating what you want or desire often means “seeing” the opposite of your current experience. For example, if you are unhappy in a particular area of life, you must see the exact opposite. If you experience financial loss, you see financial opportunities and gain. If you are broken-hearted, you visualize love coming from all directions in life. (It’s not enough to simply see it. You must feel and embrace it. You make the subjective experience more real than your actual experience.)

5) Light vibrates at a higher level than “real” life. The rules are different in the quantum field. Lost objects reappear in strange places. Money manifests. You can grow younger, and opportunities appear from nowhere.  The point is not asking how. Trust in the light and universal power. (You don’t need to know how. Stay with practice and act when prompted from the inner self.)

6) When you want to give up, you’re probably close to manifesting your desire. There is an energetic rule regarding manifestation. It takes a tremendous effort to manifest the last 5-10% of a desire. People often see success in the early phases, and they feel encouraged in the middle phase. They wonder if it will come into fruition in the last phase. It’s very important to persevere through the last phase. It’s the most difficult step. It requires a great deal of energy, but it is always worth it. And you learn it’s possible to endure through this phase, which typically seems to last forever!

7) After your desire manifests, you will feel happy and relieved. There is a temptation to put aside the spiritual work — to rest, and revel in the results. (Don’t give in.) Actually, it is the most important time to renew your spiritual practice because manifestation is ultimately about drawing closer to the universe and its secrets. Make the realization that happiness, which comes from the inner self, is greater than any material achievement.

Three Important Points

  1. Your overall energy, consciousness, and intent (placement of focus) influence your manifestation. For example, focusing intently on a desire is helpful. It works much better if you consistently work on creating higher vibrations such as love, kindness, and positive feelings.
  2. It’s also important to align your emotions with the desired outcome. Specific situations can lower our vibrations and invoke negative emotion. Overcoming negative emotional states is part of creating anything. (It’s okay to feel negative emotion. Just learn to work your way out of it.)
  3. Learning to see and feel your life in a different way creates change as well as eliciting help from the universe.

Find the 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” through specific techniques.

Light responds differently with specific situations and meditations. These brief exercises work well for a variety of 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.

“Real” love feels unconditional, soft, and centered. It brings healing, answers, and gentle self-motivation. It helps in seeing the good in the self and others. It is like looking through a beautiful, rainbow lens with a heart, which feels uplifted and calm. All of the exercises will help in finding this place.

Here are a few tips for working with the Inner Self.

  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.

Working with the Outer Self

  1. You can also use light with the self who interacts in the physical world. (This is actually how you act on the inner self’s insights.) You can begin by seeing success in your endeavor and follow it with a tangible step. Every step counts, and they add up.)
  2. All new work in the outer world requires courage and persistence. You’re following your intuition, and you may not know exactly how to move in the right direction. Decide on a task, see in fruition, and take a chance.  (Any response is always a positive answer–whether it seems like it or not.)
  3. Overcoming fear and resistance is part of the challenge. You (and everyone else) have patterns and blocks. Overcoming them is part of spiritual success. Sometimes, you simply feel the fear and go forward.
  4. Find a knowledgeable person to help with your endeavor. It saves time, effort, and energy.
  5. Focus on small tasks by creating a  visual or feeling of your desirable outcome. When you feel doubt or hesitation, return to your image and feeling. The images and feelings surrounding your desires come partially from the universe, which will come to your aid if you are consistent in invoking it through your thoughts, images, and placement of consciousness. Love yourself for making this effort.

Quantum Change

 

Less than a century ago, people lived without electricity. Twenty years ago, the internet came into form. The New Age brought lasers, healing with sound/light, and quantum physics.

The New Age is also bringing a new understanding of frequency. Max Planck said, We have no right to assume that any physical laws exist, or if they have existed up until now, that they will continue to exist in a similar manner in the future.”  (Physical reality consists of particles vibrating at a low rate. The low rate of frequency makes objects appear real and solid.)

If we vibrate in harmony with an ideal, an image connected to the soul, or higher truth, the universe responds. Higher frequencies such as light alter reality. The frequency makes “reality”—physical law—respond in an entirely, different way. It’s how small miracles take place.

  1. From a higher level, we can say our soul or inner self is the source of light. When we connect to the inner self, we receive more light. Meditation is connection to source. By connecting to the inner self, we contact a greater source of light within the self—as well as the power of the universe.
  2. When we hold a visualization, which is connected to the inner self, along with positive emotion, the universe amplifies the “visual.” This alignment brings in higher vibrations, which create a stronger, more positive frequency. If we persist with the frequency, reality changes.
  3. The result of the visual aligns with dominant emotions and thoughts—and the substance of the visual. (It can take practice and experimentation.) It’s normal to revise the visual several times as we encounter aspects of it in reality. We often find the visual by discarding old thoughts and beliefs while experimenting with different ways of seeing and feeling life. (it’s how we learn what we truly want—and what we don’t.)
  4. When we alter the energy field with higher, positive perceptions, we begin to live in alignment with the inner self and the universe, which frees us from limiting aspects of physical reality.
  5. With practice, we can create these shifts for others by use of the will. After creating a shift several times, we know the right position of the mind, emotions, spirit, and body. We repeat the technique by using the will to hold the energy in right space.

NOTE: Our limiting beliefs about time and space—as well as the goodness of the world—often limit the outcome of a visualization technique. With time, practice, and right technique, we move into a brighter space, which allows bigger and better manifestations in life.

7 Tips for Creative Visualization

Art by Mara Friedman

 

  1. Begin with a positive and courageous attitude. It doesn’t matter if you tried and failed in the past. Your perseverance with practice will change your life. In time, you’ll recognize patterns of lower emotion and thought. You’ll transcend them with positive imagery and thought. Beliefs and circumstances will alter with practice.
  2. It’s good to know this is a particularly good time for creative change. Many people are changing at one time, and their energy lends support with your efforts. It’s a wonderful time for awakening more!
  3. Whether or not you feel connected in meditation, believe it is working. Every time you practice meditation, you are literally collecting energy and light. The energy builds over time. Trust in effort. (With visualization, you can also “see” yourself doing anything that is normally difficult. An opportunity for change will come if you stay with the practice.) Visualize an action in detail. Take action, and see positive results. Repeat often.
  4. You have created a big, positive change—at least once. Travel through your memories and choose one of these times to revisit. Relive the memory and feel the burst of resolve and courage, which resulted in accomplishment. You can use this energy again (simply by remembering it.)
  5. Work with your intuitions. Intuitions can be grouped into areas–true and false. Keep a list. Refrain from acting on the “false” intuitions, and act more on the “true” list. (It’s important to know you will receive new intuitions and dreams whenever you reach a higher energy level. It takes time to discern true from false—and the same is true with dreams.)
  6. Spend time with people on a higher energy level. Find friends who encourage you and believe in you. (You don’t discuss your manifestation, but you do enjoy the friendship.)
  7. Raise your vibrations by listening to lectures or meditations by people on a higher level and/or reading spiritual works. It’s good to read a few spiritual words before bed and visualize awakening in a rested state. (If you experienced a turbulent day, you can actually see everything as better in 48 hours. It usually works.)
