I'm constantly reading and taking courses on the Law of Attraction. As I continue to find helpful information or experience those "ah-ha moments" I will post them here. ____________________________________________________________________________________
I'm a smoker who has tried to quit many times. I was listening to an Abraham-Hicks video about addictions and I was actually shocked when they began to talk about smoking. I was waiting for "the lecture" and instead they made it sound like it's not such a bad thing.
They said that first of all, big cities like Los Angeles have such bad air quality that it's actually worse than smoking. They said that your cells will adapt to whatever environment you're in so don't worry too much about it. They mentioned that since many people don't like smoking and it's banned in so many places, it gives you an excuse to just relax and be alone with yourself for a while. They also said that if you're judging and criticizing yourself in any way, because you've tried to quit and you can't, that's even worse. That's a terrible vibration to be in. Give yourself a break. Not once did Abraham say that it was unhealthy.
Now many people won't believe this, but I use muscle testing all the time. I've asked many times if certain things cause cancer. I specifically asked if smoking causes cancer and I got a "No". I asked if it's just the BELIEF that actually causes the cancer and I got a "Yes".
I'm not telling anyone to keep smoking. All I'm saying is that if you can't quit, don't beat yourself up over it. I believe that as we raise our vibrations, one day we will suddenly just say, "That's it, I don't need these anymore".
I've been reading a channeled book recently, called Love and a Map to the Unaltered Soul by Tina Louise Spalding. The first portion of the book was channeled through her guides. They explain that we really are looking for love in all the wrong places, which caused me to update my Self Love page.
The second part of the book is Jesus (Jeshua). He was talking about forgiveness and holding resentments. I really thought that I had done all of my forgiveness work until I read this.
It wasn't until Jesus asked if you resent the church, that I really felt something. Even though I've never been a big fan of religion and much of it didn't resonate with me, I must still hold some resentment there.
Then I thought about what the Pleiadians said, about Earth being the Grand Experiment and how WE created it and it's all just a "game". I wrote about this on my Aliens page. The first time that I heard that, I'll admit, I was pissed. I remember saying "WTF were we thinking". I realized that although I've heard it a number of times since then, I'm still holding resentment there too.
What about the governments? I'm not going to touch that subject, but we all know that they're hiding things from us. Why aren't they telling us what they know? Do you resent that?
Do you resent the fact that if you knew all of this, way back when, you could have created a different life?
The point is that it's not just people who we need to forgive. It's also situations and the things that we have been taught that require forgiveness.
This post applies to those of us who have been on this "path" for many years. Those who know how the Universe works and completely understand that we have created our own realities.
Recently, I've mentioned a couple of times, that I'm getting a very clear message to STOP. It's not a voice, it's just a knowing. I've muscle tested many of my questions about it and I'm simply being told to stop everything. I ask if I should listen to a particular video. "No". Should I read this book? "No".
I finally get it. Humans believe that they have to do, do, do. We believe in "a hard days work". We believe that we need to keep doing all of the things that we've always done. We believe that there's more to learn. Haven't you heard Abraham-Hicks and others tell us to stop trying so hard and get out of your own way? It's time to let go of doing and just relax. Take a nap. Have some fun. I can't remember who it was but one of the videos that I heard recently said, "YOU'RE DONE just STOP"!
Everything has to do with linear thinking and old 3D beliefs. I wrote a whole new page about it. Hopefully I explained it simply enough that everyone will understand it.
All of a sudden it seems like everything that I listen to is putting the puzzle pieces together for disease and illness. How it all ties in with forgiveness.
Dr. Bruce Lipton said many years ago that 95% of disease is caused by our emotions.
How many times have you heard that you don't realize how powerful you really are? How many times have you heard to stop searching outside of yourself for answers and go within?
Last night I heard a higher dimensional being say that anger causes cancer. This is why it spreads so quickly. When people are diagnosed with cancer they get scared. Many get even more angry. They begin asking, "Why me?" They try to "fight it" and "battle it", rather than accepting it and completely loving themselves.
Then another said that knee problems come from feeling unsupported emotionally. I would imagine that anything from the lower back down would have something to do with support or possibly being afraid to move forward.
Heart problems come from a closed heart. Even though many are beginning to open their hearts, I've also heard that most of us are terrified to open them all the way. We only open it under certain conditions.
Stomach issues are caused by anxiety and worry.
It's all beginning to make sense. We are the cause of our own illness and disease.
If we only knew how powerful we really are and more important, that we are never alone, we would never feel unsupported. We would know that we're perfectly capable of taking care of ourselves. We wouldn't have the anger and resentment towards others that many of us do. This is where the self love comes in. If we could only appreciate who we really are and know how strong we are.
When we realize this, then we can forgive, let go of the anger and the resentment. Stop blaming everyone else. Open our hearts completely and enjoy life. Then I believe that disease will begin to disappear.
There are so many people who ask why they're here. What is my purpose? What did I come here to do?
Have you ever heard of the book Power vs. Force by Dr. David R Hawkins? From that book Dr. Hawkins created a chart called the Map of Consciousness. You can Google it if your interested.
In order to keep this short, I'll explain it simply. Each human emotion or level of consciousness has a number associated with it. A few examples are: Humiliation/shame, the lowest vibration - 20. Blame/guilt - 30. Anger - 150. Love - 500. Joy - 540 and 700-1000 are levels of enlightenment. These are overall, dominant states of consciousness and it doesn't mean that if you get angry you immediately drop down to 150 again.
His findings say that "1 individual at level 300 counterbalances 90,000 individuals below level 200." What does that actually mean?
It means that if you're a person who's hopeful and optimistic and you've learned to control your negative emotions, you will counterbalance 90,000 people who are below 200. Those are the people living with deep negative emotions which include anger, grief, guilt/blame, fear and shame.
If you're studying this type of information, you must be working to raise your vibration. You must be seeing hope for the future. You may already be at level 300 or above. Look at what you're doing. You have counterbalanced 90,000 people. NINETY THOUSAND!!!!
1 individual at level 400, which is a person who feels that their life has meaning, counterbalances 400,000 individuals below level 200. It increases and multiplies from there.
You may not think that you're doing anything, but just your presence is making a difference. This is why you're here. This is why you don't have to DO anything, except BE happy and BE you.
I heard something a few days later that will take this a step farther. Someone said that when we have a 51% to 49% balance, then all of our hard work will kick in. This isn't an actual count of people, it's the overall balance of consciousness.
You may not believe in muscle testing, but it's all I've got. According to that, we are between 47% and 48%. I didn't get too specific, but we don't have far to go. Keep raising your vibration and just BE. Love is going to be what puts us over that hump.
There is so, so much going on right now that I'm having a hard time keeping up. I'm going to have to start making changes to this site.
I feel that this one is really important for many.
I was listening to one of the most beautiful messages that I've ever heard from Archangel Raphael. Of course my version won't be as beautiful as his, but this is what he said.
There are many souls leaving the planet right now. This includes animals. What we have to remember is that every soul is having their own experience. Every soul had something that they wanted to accomplish when they came into this human body. Our soul has free will. It always has and it always will. It is a souls CHOICE to leave.
Many souls have NOT had the experience of being human before. Many came in to experience density, to see what it was like. Many came in to experience 3D to see what that was like. Others have experienced what they came to "learn" and they're finished. There are so many reasons, but again, they are choosing to leave.
What we have to remember is that there are no accidents. They may seem like accidents, but it was supposed to happen. Raphael said that there is so much being cleaned out from old 3D right now, it's like "a meteor shower" in our outside experience. Stuff is coming to the surface, flying everywhere, dissipating, leaving and that includes some of the souls that are finished with their experience.
I've said this many times before and I don't mean for this to sound uncaring in any way, but things are actually very simple. We want to make things so complicated. We make things personal when they actually have nothing to do with us at all. You really have to remember that it's all ENERGY. Our bodies are energy, but the soul never dies. They're all still here when they choose to be.
Many of us have some sort of daily "spiritual practice". Some may meditate, do yoga, journal or say affirmations. How much time do you spend on those practices each day? Maybe 15 minutes, a half hour or an hour?
What do you do for the rest of the day? Where do you allow your mind to wander? Are there things that still push your buttons? How do you actually FEEL the rest of the day? Do you show gratitude during the day? Do you spend most of your time living in each NOW moment or do you find yourself going back into judgement, worry or fear later on?
It's your DOMINANT thoughts and feelings that matter. It's the rest of your day that matters. If you're doing your "spiritual work" for just a small portion of your day and ignoring the rest, then it's actually doing very little.
I used to have a page on this site about meditation and another on visualization. I deleted both of them. If you're not paying attention to the rest of your day then it doesn't really matter what practice you use.
I never liked meditation and I can't visualize anything. I've tried, but it only frustrated me. Yet I thought that they were sooo important. I learned a long time ago that if you don't enjoy it, don't do it. If it's frustrating in any way, don't do it. If you don't have time, don't worry about it. If you forget to do it, oh well. No one cares.
I'm not saying that these practices aren't a good idea, if you enjoy them. What I'm saying is, check in with yourself quite often during the day. Stop and see how you're FEELING, often. Spend more time paying attention to the rest of your day than any "spiritual practices". If you haven't learned to live in the NOW, for most of your day, that's actually a better place to put your efforts.
I remember reading about "the thought behind the thought" many years ago. If memory serves me, I believe that it was in the book Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsh. Unfortunately, when you read as much as I do, you tend to forget some of these things.
Last night I was listening to a discussion about money. It was like something smacked me up the side of the head.
There is no doubt that it's about how you FEEL, but it's also the WHY, the REASON that you want something that can make the difference.
What feeling would $1,000,000 give you? Many say freedom and I often use freedom myself. BUT, think about "the thought behind the thought". Is it freedom from the "prison" that you've been in? Is it freedom from a job that you hate? Is it freedom from that stack of bills that you have? The actual thought behind that thought is ESCAPE and it's not a good place to be.
Sometimes we use words that sound good on the surface, but if you dig deeper, they don't have the same meaning. Escape and freedom are very similar, but think about the feeling behind each one. Escape definitely has a negative undertone to it and the Universe will say, "They aren't quite ready yet".
If you do things, want things, feel things from pure love and joy then that's a great place to be.
This is something to really think about. Many people believe that they are being punished for something or that they did something wrong and that's why things are challenging. They may believe that they don't deserve to be happy.
Have you ever thought how easy it would be for the Universe (God) to just forget about you? With 7.3 billion people on this planet it wouldn't be difficult.
No, the Universe loves you. These challenges are an attempt to SHOW you, to remind you, in the only way that it can, that there is another solution. It's attempting to make you recognize it. It may be opening the door to another option, but you don't see it.
Haven't you ever looked back on something and said, "You know what? That's the best thing that ever happened.
This is why you have to stay calm, change your perspective and ask questions. What is the Universe trying to show me or get me to see? How can I look at this differently? Pay attention and watch for signs and synchronicities.
Even if this is something that you (your soul) planned before birth, ask what you have learned from it.
When I updated my page called "Live From The Heart" I used muscle testing to see how open my heart was. After many, many years of reading and studying this, I was sure that my heart was wide open. I muscle tested at only 66%. That's not terrible, but not even close to 100%. I had to start asking where am I not loving, caring or compassionate enough?
By using muscle testing again, I realized that it's not because I close my heart to strangers. It's my own family. With strangers I am at 100%.
Then last week I understood. The Universe showed me when my husband got pretty sick. He couldn't keep anything down for 2 days and I really did feel compassion for him. I did all that I could for him for 3 days. Finally, on day 4, he was better although he still wouldn't eat anything. He wouldn't even try. I'm thinking that if he won't even try, he will never get his strength back. By this time I'm waiting on him hand and foot. By day 5, he finally ate a few spoonfuls of soup.
Maybe it's me, but my compassion was slowly going out the window. He wouldn't do a darn thing to help himself. On top of that, the dog felt somewhat neglected and ate the TV remote to get back at us.
I'm sure that you get the picture. It's not the strangers that pass through your life. It's the people that you deal with on a daily basis. I believe that's where the work needs to be done.
From a recent email:
Your current level of results is nothing more than the residual outcome of your past thoughts, feelings and actions. They have nothing to do with what you are capable of or who you are capable of becoming unless you continue to make decisions based on those results. If you do, you will continue to create the same things over and over again in your life.
Look at your body, your bank account, your house, your car, your relationships, your job or lack thereof and what vibrations you have been offering, because your results are nothing more than a feedback mechanism--a mirror of what you have been thinking, feeling and acting.
Think about a mirror for a moment. A mirror does not judge, it does not say if something is "good" or "bad", "right" or "wrong". It does not edit or delete. A mirror just reflects back whatever is put in front of it.
People ask me all the time, “Neale, how can I get more abundance in my life? How can I get better relationships? How can I earn more money? How can I have better health?”
I look them in the eye and say: “You know what? That’s not the real problem. That’s the EFFECT of the problem. There is another problem that is the root of all other problems.”
The real problem is that you’re trying to do it all alone. You’re living as if there’s no other force, no other energy in the Universe that you can tap into. And you think life has to be that way.
Life is meant to be exactly the opposite of that.
Life is meant to be a process where you collaboratively engage with the essence of the Universe or "God", if you choose to call it that. When you bring that essence into your life, all those other problems of low income, relationships that don’t work, not finding the right livelihood...all these problems can go away.
I was listening to something the other night and it made me realize how much we base our lives on lack.
Most of us feel that there is a lack of money. We also feel that there is a lack of time. Because of our jobs and our responsibilities we lack freedom.
When someone dies we focus on the lack of their presence and the lack of life.
When things don't work out we have a lack of faith and many people have a lack of trust. We lack confidence and self love.
This belief in lack is what keeps us stuck. Beliefs of lack are what makes us miserable. It keeps us from expanding and following our purpose.
Go within and find your joy. Do what makes you happy and do what feels right for you. Follow your own truth. This is how you get un-stuck. Your higher self will lead you in the right direction if you pay attention and allow. Your higher self knows what you came here to accomplish.
I'm not saying to quit your job or ignore your family. You can still follow your joy by trying new things in the evenings and on weekends. Take some time for you. Ignore a few of those things that you feel you "must do".
Throw away the logic and the control and follow your guidance. Sometimes it won't make sense, but try it. That's how we expand. Find your joy and you will no longer be stuck.
Your probably reading the title of gratitude and saying, yeah, yeah, we know all about gratitude. Do you really?
I was just reading "Mastering The Law Of Attraction" by Andy Shaw. He's also the author of A Bug Free Mind. He just reminded me of something extremely important.
It's absolutely fine to KNOW this stuff, but unless you do it, it won't work. He mentioned gratitude and how important it is. I agree with him 100%. When I started showing gratitude for what I had, my life changed quickly and dramatically. The thing is that you can't just say, "I'm grateful for my house, I'm grateful for my car". You have to add the emotions and mean it.
Make a list. A list of the most memorable, wonderful, grateful moments in your life. It may be the day that you first met someone or the day that your child was born. How did you feel at that moment. Remember it and re-live it. Write down everything that has been really special in your life. Keep the list close by and make a few copies. Whenever you have to do something that you don't want to do, get the list out. Read it and feel it. If you wake up in the morning and you don't feel that great, get the list. Keep adding to it as things pop into your head. If someone ticks you off, get out the list. After a while you won't have to get the list, because those moments will be automatic to you.
Gratitude and appreciation will always be a vibration of allowing. The more that you show gratitude, the more things will come into your life to be grateful for.
Remember that your subconscious can't tell if it's wanted or unwanted. It's only aware of your focus. If you focus on my life sucks, then it will send you more things to make your life suck. If you focus on gratitude and appreciation, then it will send you more of the same.
Andy specifically pointed out that many of us already KNOW what we have to do, but knowing isn't enough. You have to DO it.
"The more you feel like you need to fix something, the more you need to NOT".
We always seem to focus on fixing something. We are trying to fix our finances, fix our relationships and fix our job.
Nothing is broken. We are focusing on what's wrong, rather than what's right. Try to focus on desires that aren't about fixing things.
How about freedom in every moment? Freedom to completely and totally express yourself with no limitations. How about adventure? No specific place, just adventure and having fun.
Get out of the comfort and safety of your life and change it. Your life is right now, in this moment.
I was reading something the other night where Mike Dooley said....The Universe is like your GPS. You put in the destination and that's it. You let the GPS tell you the quickest and easiest way to get there.
We keep trying to control everything by saying that it has to happen this way or that way. We're going by societies rules, not the Universe. When we believe that it can only happen a certain way we are limiting it. You may actually be pushing away other possibilities.
Focus on your end goal only and forget the bull and the lies that society has taught us, the Universe is full of infinite possibilities. There are so many unbelievable ways that things can happen. Infinite ways for things to fall right into place. We often get in our own way. Be willing to accept it any way that it wants to come to you. Stop telling the Universe HOW.
Here's a perfect example. My son wanted a new truck. He's temporarily running our business, while my husband is recuperating from hip surgery. The business is in my husband's name and payments come to him. As far as a bank is concerned, our son doesn't have a job or any real proof of income. I just write him a personal check each week.
Last week, he was saying that it's impossible to get a new truck, without a real job. I told him to focus on driving that truck and love that truck even though he doesn't have it yet. He was teasing me, saying that this Law of Attraction stuff is crap and he thinks that I'm nuts.
Well, I don't know if he did what I said or not, but he got a call yesterday, saying that his loan was approved. He pulled in the driveway with a beautiful truck, exactly what he wanted. I no longer doubt the Universe. Not for a moment.
Joe Vitale told a similar story in one of his books. Anything is possible if you can just let go of trying to control the HOW.
I never thought of this before. It's the things that we think are right and good in our lives that are our greatest limitations. If you think that it's already good, then how willing would you be to change it? How willing are you to try for bigger and better if you're already satisfied? How many times have you said, "That's good enough?" Is it really good enough or are you just settling for it? Be very grateful for the good, but don't be satisfied unless you're completely happy with it. Keep asking, "How can it get even better than this?" or try saying, "I'll take more like that please".
Have you just said, "Isn't that being greedy?" If you did, then you have just limited it. That's what we have been taught.
In fact, let's take this even farther. When we draw a conclusion about anything, we have limited it. Nothing will come into our awareness that is any different. Anytime we judge anything as being this way or that way, we have limited it.
Trust the Universe. Stop judging things as good or bad, right or wrong. We seem to put labels on everything. We pre-determine that it should be this way or that way. We are not letting the Universe do it's work. Remember that we are limitless.
Take the idea that you will only be rich if you win the lottery. You have narrowed down the playing field, because that's what you believe. You just set a limitation. There could be a totally unexpected opportunity out there waiting for you, but you just narrowed down the possibilities.
What conclusions have you drawn about things that have now limited the possibilities? How often have you said, "That's good enough". Is it?
I don't need any help. I'll do it myself. No one can do it the way that I like it done anyway. I can do it faster than they can. Thanks, but I can handle it myself. I don't expect anyone to help.
I think that most of us say that kind of stuff all the time. Most of us aren't very good at receiving. We don't allow help and we don't expect help. We're not used to it. We're used to controlling everything and doing it ourselves.
Unfortunately, if we don't allow the Universe to help us, we won't get what we really want. I have a feeling that many of us, including myself, have been pushing it away, because it's not in our nature. Learn to ask for assistance and accept it.
I think that I can safely say that we all want to be happy. Whether it's money or a relationship or travel, we're all going for happy.
How many times in the past week have you done something to make YOU happy? Really give this some thought.
Creating comes from where you put your energy and your attention. We rarely put that energy and attention on ourselves. We put it on everyone and everything else.
You are the only one that can create for YOU. Love yourself enough to make time for YOU and do something that brings you joy. In the end, you want to be at peace with being you.
From Dr. Joe Vitale. You have to un-attach yourself from the stuff, the things. You can love them, have fun with them, but don't give them any importance. In other words, if you didn't have that thing tomorrow, it would be no big deal. Giving it importance is needy. That also applies to money. You can have whatever you want as long as you don't have to have it. We are all putting too much importance on things.
