Small and Simple Methods to Change the World

Sometimes, the world can seem heavy or dark. We feel its weight. We may experience mass consciousness, a pool of the lower emotions and thoughts of humanity.

Fortunately, each of us can help by perceiving the world differently through thought, emotion, and visualization–or by sending light. (Sending light and/or love is quite different when it is sourced through the inner self. It is a pure, beautiful substance that uplifts whatever it touches. The word “love” has many connotations, but love sent from the heart space is a force.

The tips and techniques are about raising frequency, perceiving the power of goodness and love, and gaining awareness of our personal ability to alter the flow of life in a positive sense.

Here are few ideas:

  1. Affirm the power of love and have faith in the universe. Believing in the power of love and light is part of utilizing it. (The “feeling” and faith are part of sending light. Visualization and connection are also important.)
  2. Send light and love to the geographical location of any disturbance. Send light to everyone, who is involved in the problem. Imagine love and light changing and raising the energy of the location.
  3. Focus on peace and let it radiate through you–and out into the world. Allow your personal sensation of peace to flow through thoughts and feelings about a specific situation or location. Make a strong choice about placement of consciousness. Encourage others to do the same. (Teach yourself to feel and emit peace.)
  4. See the opposite of a current situation. See peace instead of violence.  See a safe and beautiful world. Visualize new forests in the place of deforestation. See water for the thirsty and food for the hungry. (Take 5 or 10 minutes to “see” this clearly.)
  5. Believe in the power of spiritual work. Meditating, thinking positive thoughts, and helping others raises the planetary vibration. It does a great deal in creating a better world. The work helps, and the desired change is coming.
  6. Avoid reactive people. It’s impossible to move into a state of self-observation when people strongly express negative opinions. Stay neutral and work from a place of love. Observe and detach from the media. (We’re leaving the time of Kali Yuga when negative vibrations were attractive and inviting. The media makes life seem worse by focusing on negativity. Choose to be different and stay focused on the positive.)
  7. KNOW there is a great deal of love on this planet. We may not always see it, but love and light are the underlying fabric of matter. The light is growing. (A good intuitive can “see” it.)

When Manifestation Doesn’t Work

The steps involved in manifestation are simple, but failure can come for many reasons. Often, lack of persistence is the first cause. Meditation should take place every day, with no exception — and the image must be very clear. Lacking an image, then one projects into a feeling. (Only a high frequency feeling like love or happiness will do.) Eventually, opportunity comes, and then action is required.

Between the first step and the last, a quality known as resistance appears. We want the desirable change, but often lack the force to push through the negative field. No (large) desire ever comes up for fulfillment unless we have energy flowing in the other direction — so we find the block, to clear it over time. (The amount of time needed in manifestation relates directly to the significance of the desire and the depth/weight of the "block.")

Each visualization and every action toward fulfillment increase the energy of the desire, but the feeling of contentment, serenity and happiness from the spiritual connection comprise a great deal of the work. The underlying objective of all manifestation is reception of love, light, abundance and joy — the higher frequencies in life.

To truly accomplish a desire, we live as though the desire is already present in our world today. On the other hand, realism is important — we must budget our pennies, even while imagining a great sum. We exercise while holding an image of a lovely body or develop social skills while seeing friends.

Eventually, we clear the fear, which is the real reason for any blockage, and we learn to live in a higher frequency, in which life forms itself into more pleasing materiality. So, it is the movement through the lower self toward the higher or True Self, which brings manifestation into being.

Having said this, here are a few stumbling blocks often encountered on the way:

1) Desire of a manifestation for fulfillment of the ego, as opposed to spiritual gain. Believing fulfillment brings approval or status. One can also believe s/he is not worthy or deserving — or fail to see inner worthiness.
2) Lack of devotion. A hit and miss practice. Using emotional states or activities as an excuse to avoid practice.
3) Not understanding the value of a higher frequency in meditation. (For example, feeling desperate while meditating on a goal.)
4) Lack of willingness to work with fear, resistance or blocks. Blaming others. Not working with the inner dialog. Movement into anger instead of understanding that one creates his/her reality.
5) Not making substantial changes. If you want a new house, then look for one. If you want a new job, then apply for it. Change your diet if you want a new body. Manifestation helps with goals, but you have to work with it — not just "at it." (Working slowly is fine!)
6) "Hurry up/slow down" syndrome. Sometimes, it’s frightening when our world begins to change very quickly. We begin to think that it’s all too much for us and want the changes to slow down. Then, everything moves back into the lower reality, and we start over again.
7) Fear of "losing." Often, fear of loss is experienced — as losing our loved ones, our place in life or our "current reality." The real fear is about letting go of our old concept of the self.
8) Self-love. Loving the self is one of the most challenging steps on the road to mastery. Patterns are conquered by learning to love the negative and positive self equally.
9) Not understanding the value of co-creation. When you change by learning to love yourself, you change the light-level of the world. It is not an act of selfishness, but a great act of love.
