Today I’d like to offer a powerful meditation. It’s from one of my favorite books, Into the Magic Shop. It’s written by James Doty, an acclaimed neuroscientist from Stanford University, and tells the story of a underprivileged boy from Orange County who, in a very unexpected way, learns to meditate. Specifically he’s taught how to manifest dreams he can barely believe are possible, financially and career-wise. But over time, in the book and this boy’s actual life, every goal he sets comes true.
And they'll try to use the "LoA" as a way to get more 'things' which really just satisfies ones ego and comes from a place of lack. They use it as a tool, as a means to an end. But it's not a tool, it's more of a "this is how it works" and being consciously aware of how it works can be pretty powerful, just not *necessarily* in the way many would think (red lamborghinis and such).
Going to work: I wrote down and got super clear on the characteristics of my ideal partner. Then I asked myself, could I offer these characteristics to a partner today? In doing so, I realized that I don’t have unconditional love for myself, so how can I truly offer that to someone else? For the next 30 days I’m going to journal and bring awareness to my negative self talk and limiting beliefs that tell me “I’m not good enough” and start working on those. I have to take care of me before the Universe can take care of me.
There were also a number of New thought Teachers that believed the books of the Bible were not based on actual events, but were in fact a series of lessons created to instruct mankind on the proper use of his mind. One of these Teachers was Neville Goddard and according to him, he often demonstrated the the power of manifesting desires through the practice of visualization, which is essentially sending out a series of thought images into the ether.
You can do this yourself. You can become someone who purposefully creates ripples in the universe. Did you know, everything you do energetically ripples out and affects others? And the ripples then come back to you. This process is fast. Don’t underestimate how possible it is for you to be a true catalyst for change. You can be a magnet for all the positive ripples floating around out there. Like a radio station, you can tune into the good stuff. Starting right now.
Gratitude. Feel the gratitude of what it feels like when your dreams come to fruition. Your feelings are what is fueling the manifestation process. What does it feel like when you are living your dreams? Spend time visualizing what it is like to live your dreams and feel that gratitude, joy, love, bliss and all the other good stuff. Let this energy rocket you closer to your manifestations.
Manifesting from the Heart requires that you also create a strategy or a step-by-step plan of action towards the creation of your vision. Remember the old saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” So, what you want to do here is reverse engineer all the activities or actions that will lead you in the direction of your vision. You’ll achieve this by answering these key questions: What are the necessary steps that will take me there? What is my plan of action? What is the first thing I must do? The second? Third? etc.
I am trained as a "hard science" PhD in Pharmacology and do understand scientific method. The LOA is not based on scientific method and the erroneous conclusions in metaphysics are based on incorrect scientific assumptions. These assumptions may have seemed reasonable in the 1800s that there was no air around us, only ether and that thoughts only transmit through ether. Perhaps this assumption is correct, however we are not surrounded by ether.
What Does Manifest Content Of A Dream Mean
The law of attraction (LOA) is the belief that the universe creates and provides for you that which your thoughts are focused on. It is believed by many to be a universal law by which “Like Always Attracts like.” The results of positive thoughts are always positive consequences. The same holds true for negative thoughts always leading to bad outcomes. But the LOA is much more than generalizations; thinking about red Lamborghinis will bring you red Lamborghinis – always. To the believers, questioning the validity of the LOA is akin to heresy and blasphemy; it creates religious fervor. To the uninitiated, it may seem silly to discuss even the possibility that such a law could exist.
1. START SAYING NO. This applies to anything that’s not a “hell yes” in your life. Anytime you’re people-pleasing or doing something because you think you should be, or settling, what you’re communicating energetically and projecting is: “I’m not worth doing what I want” or “I don’t feel valuable enough to do what I want, therefore I’m going to keep staying small.” Whenever you’re in that mode, you’re just going to keep attracting the same lessons over and over and over again. Create boundaries and say no to what’s not a yes. That’s the number one thing somebody can do right away.
Additionally, your emotions about your desires either attract them into your physical reality or prevent them from showing up. If you want a new car, for example, but you constantly feel angry, jealous and depressed every time you see someone else driving your dream car, you decrease your chances of manifesting a car. If, however, when you see someone driving that car you feel joyful at the thought of one parked in your garage, you begin manifesting that new car. So, work on feeling good and happy about what you want even before you have it. This means learning to act and feel “as if” you already manifested your heart’s desire.
I sent these to my son to help him through a difficult time. I ended up with a set for me on my kindle and I purchased the book. The book contains a wealth of universal wisdom and the card deck pulls out bits of wisdom that are easy to assimilate. It seems as though when I pick a card - it is exactly what I need to hear. I love this deck of cards Thank you!!
Because if there’s a “secret” that can change your life, it’s this: We’re all connected — from the smallest living being to the farthest star in the cosmos. Of course, that may be the oldest secret there is. But it remains a secret in that many of us live our entire lives without discovering its true transformative power. You can use this secret to manifest the life of your dreams, but it will also change what the life of your dreams means to you.
Look. Yes, you should have a vision of what you want your life to look like. I have a very clear vision. But it’s not hanging over my head. It’s in my pocket. Actually, it’s in my phone. And it changes as I change. They are a list of wants and goals but not needs. They do not define me or my worth. My vision acts as a compass. Do I want these things? Fuck yes I want these things. Will I not allow myself to be happy if I don’t obtain them? Nope. Been there, done that. Never again.
