Take a look at your life, the things you like and the things you don’t like about your current reality. Do you want to change your entire life? Sometimes we feel stuck and we just need a little shift in perspective to begin to change our reality into something we are excited to experience.
insanity according to Albert Einstein. So what is it that we need to change?
Often the answer to life’s questions are contained in their opposites. What I mean by that is you have to shift your focus from what you have always done and look at the opposite action. If you keep doing what you are doing then you will keep getting what you are getting in life.
Changing your thinking will work its way down into changing your life but in order to change your thinking often you have to open your mind to new ideas and concepts that are so far outside of your typical reality that they may seem strange or uncomfortable.
Being uncomfortable or feeling awkward is often the result of bouncing up against one of the walls of your mental boxes. We want to grow, expand our awareness, achieve our dreams and become more spiritual but in order to do this we have to redefine and remove our mental boxes.
So as a practice, tell your inner voice to listen to what I am about to say, breathe it in and feel what the idea means. Pretend for one moment it IS true so that you can experience the impact of this new idea in your life.
The present is not the result of the past, and the future is not the result of the present.
What does this mean? Well I am going to allow the channeling of Bashar to shed some light on this before I continue. Check out this short yet mind blowing explanation about the power you have over your reality right now!
As science has steadily undermined the long-held beliefs of religion, almost all that remains for people of faith is to say that God is and will forever be a mystery. Insofar as Einstein was religious, he possessed a feeling of awe and wonder at the mystery of the universe. But science hasn’t stopped chipping away at mystery, promising to reduce spiritual experience to measurable brain activity. It’s doubtful that belief in God, the soul, heaven and hell, and other tenets of faith will be drastically affected – polls continue to show that these things remain articles of belief for around 80-90% of responders.
Will neuroscience eventually be able to locate God in our neurons, and if so, should that tiny area of the brain be excised or boosted? No doubt there are arguments on both sides, depending on whether you hold that God has been good for the human race in the long run or bad. Setting aside such judgments, it turns out that the possibility of finding God in the brain creates a baffling mystery that neither religion nor science can tackle alone.
Now that advanced brain scanning can map the way our brains light up with each thought, word, or action, it’s clear that no experience escapes the brain. For a mystic to see God or feel his presence, for St. Paul to be suddenly converted on the road to Damascus, or for St. Teresa of Avila to have her heart pierced by an angelic arrow, such experiences would have to register in their brains. However, this indisputable fact (so far as present knowledge extends) doesn’t give science the advantage over religion. For it turns out that the brain has definite limitations on what it can experience.
The work of the late Polish-American mathematician Alfred Korzybski (1879-1950) is relevant here, because Korzybski worked out the layered processing that goes into the way we perceive everyday reality. Billions of bits of data bombard our sense organs, of which only a fraction enter the nervous system. Of that fraction, more of the raw input is filtered out by the brain, which uses built-in models of reality to discard what doesn’t fit. When people say “You’re not hearing me” or “You only see what you want to see,” they are expressing a truth that Korzybski tried to quantify mathematically.
Sometimes the things a person doesn’t see are simply outside the range of human experience, like our inability to see ultraviolet light. But a great deal more depends on expectations, memories, biases, fears, and simple close-mindedness. If you go to a party, and someone tells you that you are about to meet a Nobel Prize winner, you will see a different person than if you are told he is a reformed Mafia hit man. When all the filtering and processing is complete, there is no doubt that the brain doesn’t actually experience reality but only a confirmation of its model of reality.
Two interesting points follow:
- All models are equal as viewed from the level of the brain.
- Reality transcends any model we can possibly make of it.
These two points allow God, the soul, and all other spiritual experiences back into the picture. The first point demolishes the notion that science is superior to religion because it gathers facts while religion deals in beliefs. In truth, science filters out and discards a huge portion of human experience – almost everything one would classify as subjective – so its model is just as selective, if not more so, than religion’s. As far as the brain is concerned, neural filtering is taking place in all models, whether they are scientific, spiritual, artistic, or psychotic. The brain is a processor of inputs, not a mirror to realty.
We are on earth with one passion to discover and share
I love this myth. You know, there are some people on the planet who have one passion that transcends their entire lifespan. But imagine you’re like my friend Marie. She was passionate about sewing. She sewed new cushion covers for her entire office and home. She made hats for everybody’s Christmas gifts. She was so good and passionate about it that she said to all her friends “Finally—I’ve discovered my life’s purpose!” Only to be confronted 2 months later that she had an epiphany on her morning hike that she was now meant to teach yoga and it was time to enlist in a yoga teacher training.
She followed that guidance and became a yoga teacher. She shared the yogic teachings for several years, until one day again while in a deep meditation she was met with a flash of knowing that it was time to share her gift of mediumship.
As you can see, life is a delicious ride of twists and turns. Some people will find one passion for their entire lifetime. Others will find passion within a multitude of different modalities. Thinking that there is only one right passion in life can cause anxiety of “getting it wrong.”
It’s impossible to get your passion wrong!
Trust that what you’re in love with and that which flows with ease at this moment is divinely guided passion. When you practice staying present, you will know if your passion changes.
That if This IS TRULY your path, it will be easy
I first heard this from a spiritual teacher of mine. When she told this to me I felt an instant hit of inner knowing that this was true, and that it was such a pervasive myth in spiritual circles.
You see, in many spiritual circles you’re told that if you’re meant to be doing your [insert your soul-guided work here] then it will come easily to you.
The truth is, sometimes the form by which you will share your soul-work may look different than the image you had envisioned.
Take my friend Nancy for example, she is a spiritual clairvoyant and a registered psychotherapist. For years she tried to make her clairvoyant-work be her main source of income. She thought to herself “Shouldn’t it come easy if I’ve been given these gifts? Shouldn’t it just work out if this is my path!?”
She started to see that her gift of clairvoyance actually helped her patients in her psychotherapy path immensely. It ended up helping the people that normally would not have access to her gifts nor those who would not actively be searching out for a clairvoyant healer.
It took many years but she started to see that the path you think will be easy isn’t always the road you will travel. Sometimes the form of how we share our gifts will be different than what we imagined.
You cannot say anything negative for if you do, you will bring crisis to you
I’m all for positive psychology. However it’s a misleading conception that if you dare say any negative statement or feel a negative feeling that you’ll be damned.
The truth is that we’re here on the planet to feel the full range of emotions and to be honest with ourselves about it.
If you feel like it’s wrong to “be sad” or wrong to “feel empty” or any other so-called negative emotion, we actually end up blocking ourselves from the present moment.
When we resist the truth of our emotions we actually keep them around longer. They end up getting buried and we’ll wonder why our positive psychology or that law of attraction isn’t working for us.
Like his above mentioned contemporaries, however, his native roots were deep, leaving him in the unique position of being a conduit between cultures. Though his movement through the white man’s world was not without “success” — he had numerous movie roles in Hollywood — his enduring legacy was the protection of the way of life of his people.
By the time of his death he had published 4 books and had become a leader at the forefront of the progressive movement aimed at preserving Native American heritage and sovereignty, coming to be known as a strong voice in the education of the white man as to the Native American way of life. Here, then, are 10 quotes from the great Sioux Indian Chief known as Standing Bear that will be sure to disturb much of what you think you know about “modern” culture.
1) Praise, flattery, exaggerated manners and fine, high-sounding words were no part of Lakota politeness. Excessive manners were put down as insincere, and the constant talker was considered rude and thoughtless. Conversation was never begun at once, or in a hurried manner.
2) Children were taught that true politeness was to be defined in actions rather than in words. They were never allowed to pass between the fire and the older person or a visitor, to speak while others were speaking, or to make fun of a crippled or disfigured person. If a child thoughtlessly tried to do so, a parent, in a quiet voice, immediately set him right.
3) Silence was meaningful with the Lakota, and his granting a space of silence before talking was done in the practice of true politeness and regardful of the rule that ‘thought comes before speech.’…and in the midst of sorrow, sickness, death or misfortune of any kind, and in the presence of the notable and great, silence was the mark of respect… strict observance of this tenet of good behavior was the reason, no doubt, for his being given the false characterization by the white man of being a stoic. He has been judged to be dumb, stupid, indifferent, and unfeeling.
4) We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, the winding streams with tangled growth, as ‘wild’. Only to the white man was nature a ‘wilderness’ and only to him was it ‘infested’ with ‘wild’ animals and ‘savage’ people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery.

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.
One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.
His bed was next to the room’s only window.
The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end.
They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..
Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.
The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.
As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.
One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.
Although the other man could not hear the band – he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.
Days, weeks and months passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.
She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.
As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.

There are Six Metaphysical Laws of Prosperity, inviolable principles and maxims beyond the physical plane that dictate a person’s future success and ultimate prosperity.
1. The Metaphysical Law of Human Radiation recognizes that each person is basically a powerful energy source that radiates a karma of thoughts and feelings, emotions or “vibes,” if you will. In a philosophical way, we are both living magnets and power sources of human energy–a yin and yang in oriental thinking. This law teaches us that as we radiate out our unique energy, we attract into our lives those people and circumstances that are in tune with our unique thoughts. You attract to yourself what you radiate out from yourself, whether it is positive or negative. People of a similar mind tend to group together. Your close friends probably think much like you do. They have become your close friends because of this metaphysical law of human radiation. It confirms the old adage that birds of a feather flock together. Others immediately recognize fundamentally good people because of the aura they cast. They easily attract friends. People instinctively trust them. This occurs by the metaphysical Law of Human Attraction. Those who have few or no friends also operate under the Law of Attraction. Somehow the true natures of people shine through and others instinctively know who they really are inside.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT AND YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT
For years you have heard that you are what you eat. It is true, but did you know that you become what you think about all the time? This is equally true. There is another maxim that guides your life: what you radiate out, you also attract to yourself. Stated differently, what a person thinks about all the time is attracted into his life. Show me someone who is passionately consumed with a belief or concept, who lives, breathes, and eats a particular idea, and I will show you a person who will have that preoccupation become a reality in his or her life.
With this metaphysical law of attraction in mind, obviously you want to be very positive and optimistic in your outlook so that you will attract those developments in your life. This is much more than just “positive thinking,” although there is certainly nothing wrong with positive thinking. Success visualization is a process that changes our lives by creating images in our minds that ultimately become reality. These images are first just anticipation, but they quickly become an expectation, and finally an intrinsic belief. Over time you “know” that this will become a reality in your life. Since you are creating your life every day, you are also creating your future.
2. The Metaphysical Law of Self-Determination is an acknowledgment of the role of personal responsibility. It is your “self” that determines your fate and nothing and no one else. The self-determination you feel within gives you the strength to overcome all the obstacles you will face in life. You must take personal responsibility for your actions and the results in your life. Your “self” must become strong and determined. You always succeed through self-determination.
3. The Metaphysical Law of Continuous Growth reveals that you cannot succeed in life if you stop growing mentally. Personal self-improvement and professional educational growth should be your never-ending quest. To enjoy continued success and prosperity, you must always be learning and striving for improvement. The Metaphysical Law of Continuous Growth is the accepted way of life for truly successful people. Remember, when you stop growing, you are ripe. And when you are ripe, you start to rot. If you are not reading and learning new things regularly, then your brain is withering away. To earn more, you must learn more.

Your Soul is THE most badass business tool available to you. If you express who you are, at Soul-level, through your services and products, but also the way you market, sell, and structure your business … well, financial success is the happy byproduct. Even if you’re not the world’s greatest marketer, and even if you don’t have oodles of sales training.
Your Soul is actually constantly trying to serve you in making more money! Your Soul did NOT come here to experience being able to pay the bills. You just have to learn how to recognize its attempts to assert itself in your business.
Here are three ways you can learn to recognize how your Soul is already trying to show you your path to financial success in your business:
1. Your Real “Why”
When we set new income goals for ourselves, we often find practical rationalizations for what we want to do with the money. We tell ourselves that we’ll pay off our debts, put money towards the kids’ college funds, and take some nice family vacations. Maybe we even want to upgrade our lifestyle – a nicer home, luxury cars, and someone else to do our laundry.
But behind the reasonable lifestyle goals usually lurks a different “why.” It’s an unreasonable use for money, a quirky, even eccentric desire to express yourself into this reality in a highly unique way.
Your Soul-based “why” probably has nothing to do with what financial planners tell you to do with your income. It has nothing to do with being reasonable, or being practical. But pursuing this “why” will accelerate the amount of income you make like nothing else!
I’ll give you a real-life example.
A friend of mine is a highly successful entrepreneur whose company trains IT professionals in something so geeky, I don’t even fully understand it.
He bought a second home just a few miles from his old one, mainly for its huge yard. And then, over the course of several years, he proceeded to design and build himself a two million dollar pool, including three volcanoes. Yes, the man put volcanoes in his backyard! His pool is a crazy play ground full of hidden bar areas, hot tubs, and slides. There’s even a wine cave and a stage area on top, so that he can host live bands!
There is nothing practical about this pool. Sure, he may end up renting out his backyard for parties. But building this pool was his passion. He just … did it. Guess what happened to his business? That’s right … he’s making more money than ever. He listened to his Soul’s desire for self-expression. And while, reasonably, building two million dollars worth of volcanoes as a backyard playground shouldn’t be lucrative … it was.
Money is a tool for creative self-expression. And if you allow money to express the real YOU, your Soul, the spiritual Being that you are … you will attract more of it!
So pay attention to the slightly crazy, impractical longings that arise, over and over again. Maybe it’s a deep desire to collect cars. Or homes. Or travel the world in a sail boat. Don’t do anything irresponsible, but LISTEN. Your Soul is trying to help your business grow!
2. Creative Flow
Most of us feel it when we’re doing our “work” – you know, the thing we get paid for, whether that’s creating art or coaching clients, or zipping through someone’s tax return. It’s why we love our work. In fact, it’s most likely that delicious state of creative flow that we feel during our work that made us want to get into business to begin with.
The funny thing is, as soon as get down to the business of business-building, we seem to abandon inspired creativity for “proven” marketing strategies, sales funnels, and other people’s systems. So many entrepreneurs I know dislike marketing and sales. Personally, I think they’re just doing it wrong!
We know we’re aligning to our Soul’s authentic self-expression (which, remember, always results in major cash flow!!) when we feel the same sense of creative flow in our marketing, sales, and administrative endeavors as we do in our actual “work.” Which means none of it feels like work! Effort? Sure. As I’m sitting here, writing these words, I’m engaged in effort. Am I “working?” Some people might think so! But the Truth is that I followed inspiration and when I’m done writing, I’m going to feel pretty darn awesome and energized.
Instant manifestation may at first glance seem like the “holy grail” of law of attraction devotees… but reality is that you would end up with the curse of Midas if it could be done!
If you remember your mythology…
Midas, whose name is now often associated with gold and the “golden touch” was deeply unhappy and in the end killed by his greed.
His wish that everything he touched should turn to gold meant that his food became inedible and even his tongue turned to gold.
However… we shouldn’t throw out such an enormous idea before giving it more careful examination…
If we take Biblical stories of miracles literally, then instant manifestation is certainly possible.
The problem for most of us, though, is that the reason we desire something instantly is usually because we’re desperate.
That’s an emotion born of fear and panic – energies guaranteed to keep the object of our desires and us apart.
Another point to realize is this: when something appears in the material world, it does so in “an instant”.
I was privileged to be present at the birth of my two sons, and part of the miracle was that there was suddenly a moment when there was another – and brand new – person in the room. But of course, there was a nine month prelude to that instant.
It’s the same with most physical things…
They will appear in your reality when just a moment before there was seemingly nothing there! In all probability, however, there’s been a gestation period of anything from a few hours or days … and for some, almost a lifetime.
Think of the number of performing artistes who jokingly point out that their “overnight success” took twenty years!
Stay focused, clear and trusting, and the instant manifestation of all you desire will show up. Eventually.
And if you’d like to begin manifesting like a master today, then I suggest you download this MP3 right now as it has the ability to instantly make you a master with the Law of Attraction.
