Are you a "Peeker" or a "Seeker"? Are you peeking around at opportunities you want but are to scared to go get? Or are you a Seeker, someone really looking for new and better ways to evolve. Maybe you are little of both, and if you are just be a "Speaker", speak your desires into existence with power, control and enthusiasm. Believe in your end results and enjoy the journey, and always speak to yourself with positivity and encouragement.
Not to long ago I was outside watering the grass and meditating for a brief moment in my usual way, when a neighbor of mine came by. Her daughter just got a new skateboard for her birthday. By the way she may be reading this, I told her to check out my website. I hope my subscribers have been sharing my website with others also. That’s the best way to show me you appreciate my work, well it’s that and paypal but who’s counting.
Any way, when you come to the end of the story that I’m getting ready to tell you, the young lady probably could have done without my two cents, but I really felt like the message was one that I needed to listen to for myself. This is what happened.
As I was watering the grass, I continued to watch the young girl try her hand at skateboarding. She wasn’t getting further than a half foot, maybe 2 before she would fall down and off the skateboard. The little girl just turned 12 years old, the day before and she was ready to take on a new challenge.
You and I we take on challenges too. When we take on our challenges we are basically getting on a skateboard for the first time figuratively speaking.
Think about it this way, when you are standing straight up you are symmetrical on both sides, and this makes you balanced. The skate board is symmetrical and both sides as well, and there for it is balanced. The catch is that the your balance depends on that of the skateboard. When you as a working partner with the skate board keep the experience balanced everything else will flow into being. What’s important to know is that we don’t attempt to kick push, until we understand the balance of the skateboard.
Who or what is our skateboard during our challenges. Our skateboard is our divine source of all things that feel good. Mind you I didn’t say all things good, I said all things that make us feel good. Good is just a vocabulary word described to that feeling inside of us that feels like sweet vibration. (you know the feeling it's unmistakable)
We must first become balanced and at one with the Source before we can move forward successfully to the next step. The next step is finding where it is comfortable. We hear the phrase all of the time, "get out of your comfort zone". WHY? Even when someone is working out their muscles they must stay within a zone that will not hurt them, yet people preach get out of your comfort zone and don’t lend a hand nor finger to pull you out of the pain.
So get adjusted in a space that feels comfortable, and once you have mastered that space move to the next space. Don’t cheat yourself. When you are ready to advance take full advantage.
When we fall off the skateboard as the young girl did many times, we will quickly do as she did and get right back up. Why? Why do we get back up? We get back up because we know that no matter where we fall in the process, in our journey we will remain grounded.
What would pose as your balance to ensure a clear connection to the Divine Source?
How often will you tilt the scale. The bottom line is that millisecond of doubt right before assurance kicks in is an adrenaline rush to say the least, but it’s what you do with that adrenaline dictates rather you will fall again or stay up.
We hear it all the time. In our quest to, "find ourselves", we come across the phrase, "Power of Attraction". Some believe, but they don't know quite sure why they do, and others suck their teeth and role their eyes, at the perceived non-sense of it all. Those who believe with limited understanding are doing it in hopes of "making their dreams come true". The one's who think it's crock are the ones who may have "tried it", but nothing Manifested as they had hoped. Here's the thing... in order to understand the "Power of Attraction", we must first go beyond the physical definition.
When we hear the word attraction, we think of magnets, love interest, a compelling draw toward two things. When you put the word Power in front of that people think they have the "power" to make what ever they want happen just the way they want, and they can attract any outcome or thing that they want. Now although this is partially true, it's only the half of it.
What has been the case for many before us, is that we "practice" attracting good things into our lives, and we even say these affirmations outloud daily. We say stuff like, "I am this" or " I'm enjoying having that". They say these things, and think these attraction thoughts in hopes of again, "manifesting" what they want. Usually by only doing half of what it takes, the desired outcomes is a no go each and every time.
What the, "Law of Attraction" is, is simply that. A Law.....and guess what even via the flesh there are so many of us that break the law. When you break a law the outcome is usally unpleasant. With the law of attraction their is a right way and a wrong way.
First, because we are use to doing it the wrong way, let's discuss the wrong way to use the, "Law of Attraction".
Okay, take for example there is a new position available at work. You really want this position, so you go into your "magical thinking" ......"I have received my desired new job"....."I am already happy to be in my new position", like any magic, there must be a process to get to the "TA-DA". Simply saying these things means nothing.......You have to feel these things. Okay, now let's not get squirmy. Let me explain how we feel the things we desire.
What I mean by feeling the things you desire, I mean putting out a good feeling a good vibration. So in order to get the new position you asked the Universe for, your vibration, that feeling inside of you, your spirit, must be in a good place. The only way good things come to you, is when you are in a good place. If you want the new position, and you say these great things about getting the position, but your inner feelings are actually "fearful, anxious, impatient, uncertain, resentful, or envious about the idea of getting the job, it's safe to say you are not going to get the job, it's the law. Here are some examples of how this feeling can show up in reference to you wanting the job.
You may be really excited about the job for a brief moment and in that brief moment your vibration is kickin, boy are you feeling good, but as soon as that feeling kicks in you begin to think the following.
When you read those bullet points, how did you feel? You felt bad didn't you? That feeling vibrates very lowly in your Spirit, and good things can not come from a low vibration. This is law. The Law of Attraction means you can attract good or bad. Good feelings bring good experience, and bad feelings bring bad experiences. It's a very simple concept.
Not only does thinking negatively about the new position you are going for cause a hiccup in your manifestation plans, but you also catch a snag in your life that can cause you to be in a low vibrational state.
Now let's get to the good stuff. The how to. Well first let me just clue you in on something. You have always known how to, I guess this moment in your life, as you read this post, is the moment you created because now it's time to make sense of all of this and be reminded how. No worries, it happens to all of us. Those who are willing to do it right enjoy the benefits of this powerful ability to create what we truly desire.
So let's get back to this new position. In this example we will manifest this new position. First off, just the idea of getting this new position feels good. Instead of tossing that feel goodness for some low vibrational thoughts, you are going to hold on to that good feeling by envisioning yourself in this desired position. You see yourself in your new office, you see yourself having lunch with new coworkers, you can see it. It's in your minds eye and it's as vivid as a 3D movie. Man that vibration is getting a little bit stronger. Now you are going on about your day. And things pop up in your life. Maybe you find out that your light bill is overdue. Your cousin wants you to watch her baby, and you really don't want to, but you don't know how to tell her, and on top of all that your neighbors dog has been pooping in your yard.
Although you felt good earlier in the day, now you feel a bit down because you barely have enough money to cover the bill, your cousin's baby is a terror and your neighbors stupid dog poop ruined your brand new shoes. So you are feeling pretty lousy. These lousy feelings float up into the universe and you cash those feelings in for stuff you just wouldn't really ever even ever want EVER!!!!
So instead of putting your vibration in jeopardy of feeling good when all of this stuff is happening in your life, you control what you feel. You are going to feel your heart sink in your chest, and into your stomach when you see past due bills, but you don't stay in that space. You say HOLD UP, UH UH...."I'm not even going to go there" You change your outlook on the past due bill. "You know I'm really glad to even be able to pay my bill, so I'm happy" AND STOP THERE....don't say, "I'm really glad to even be able to pay my bill because I don't really have money like that to be spending" Okay, don't say that because if you do the attention is back on not having enough money and that brings your vibration down again, which real in turn cause you to attract the things you do not want.
Now in reference to your cousins baby. If your cousin's baby is a terror and you really don't want to watch the kid, then say, "no". You have the right to say no, and if that little wild cat of a child is going to send your vibration down the crapper, just say no. You may even feel bad for turning her down, and that too will bring down your vibration, but if you recognize what you are doing to your vibration you can intentionally focus on something that will bring you up a notch. As for the dog poop, that's gonna be a tuff one. Cleaning poop off of the bottom of a shoe is never good vibrationally for anyone. In fact just the idea alone will send all types of unwanted poop your way, so let's just stop talking about it all together. I'm being silly, but honestly don't spend to much time mad about the dog poop. If throwing the shoes in the trash makes you feel better, then get to tossin.
Your main objective in obtaining the things that you desire, is by having a vibration that attracts desirable things. If your vibration is low, you will attract undesirable things. If you want to attract something specific, you must have a good vibration surrounding what it is that you want and you must check your icky thoughts and feelings as they float in and then trade those icky thoughts and feelings for good ones........Man even reading that sentense alone brough me back up to where I want to be feeling right now, and that's SUPER GOOD.
In this example, you get the position you desire because you feel good about it, and you feel good more times than not during the course of your applying and getting the new job.
Let's recap, on how to attract our specific wants in our life.
Now let's recap on how to attract good things into your life in general, on a consistent basis.
So you made it, you are finally at the part in your life, where you realize that you want more out of it. You have passion and desires and now you are ready to persue your dreams. It feels so good, your level of excitment, happiness and overall joy. If you felt like this all the time, you'd never have a bad day. Unfortunately for all of us, staying in this happy space 100% of the time is hardly the case, but for what ever it's worth it feels really good right now. Well more so it feels good in the moments where your emotional fire with flickering flames of every color are joyfully creating. It all ends the minute you are jolted out of your feel good moment by someone who is basically a loaded water hydrant hose in your life.
Let's use a visual so that this analogy really sinks in. Use your imagination with this, because this is going to be all kinds of fun. I want you to relax for a moment, exhale out all the yuckies, and long breath inhale all the yummies. If you really want to feel good before we start this exercise, take your right thumb and cover your right nostril. While your right nostril is covered, exhale out of your left nostril, then cover up your left nostril releasing your thumb from the right and inhale through the right for about 6 seconds then exhale out the right for about 6 seconds, continuing with inhale/exhale in one nostril, and then the other. This will really set the mood.
Okay, so if you are ready to begin then let us continue. I want you to imagine that you are a cartoon character living in a cartoon world. You are walking down a beautiful cartoon street with beautiful cartoon homes, well manicured cartoon lawns, and well kept cartoon cars in the drive way. The day is sunny and bright, and the sun is round fat and yellow with a big happy face on it, beaming down on you and feeding you a happy flame. Happy Flames, are the fires that are good for us. The fires we cook with, or the fires we stay warm with or create energy on earth with. Your entire being is a walking talking flame. This is what you look like, you look like a happy flame that is walking down the street, skipping a beat and just so happy to be of excellent service to someone in life, and yourself. Your name is brilliant and you are ready to live up to that name. You know exactly what you want to contribute to this world and you are on your way to let your flame flicker with joy. La, la, la, la, la THEN all of a sudden that cartooned water hydrant, who is always there is looking at you with disgust. It's a talking cartoon water hydrant. As you blaze willingly down the street toward your destination, the Talking Water Hydrant says to himself, "Look at this pathetic little unrealistic fool. He should do something with his life. Neighborhoods are always looking for good fire hydrants to man corners. It's not so bad....."Hey Brilliant, you think you are so smart don't you? you think you got it all figured out, don't you? Let me just bring you back to reality, your living in a make believe world. You need to start being realistic and stop living in the clouds."
In that very moment, in that instant your good feeling, feels threatened. You stop your happy skip, and you stand still to hear more of what the hydrant is saying. It's almost like a magnet of distruction. You can't seem to pull away from your unwanted engagement with the Talking Water Hydrant. You actually tune in to take in his unsolicited two cents, which really is two cents, because after his long hard day in the sun, and he pays all of his bill and lives his safe realistic life, that's about how much they have left at the end of the day TWO CENTS. The more the Water Hydrant talks, it begins to assemble it's hose. As it's asembling it's hose, you take your opportunity to defend your position. In this cartoon story you have just joined a network marketing company with a great compensation plan, and you know the produt is amazing, and that you will get lots of customers, and make lots of money building an organization. You say to the hydrant, "Network Marketing is a real busines", but before you can even finish the water hydrant has already been loaded with the best amunition possible to knock some sense into you. Besides, he's heard these defense lines time and time again, the times he had to bring someone else back to reality. It's what he does for a living here in your cartoon world. He already knowa exactly what you are going to say, and the Hydrant says...."It's not a real business. It's just a pyramid" You know exactly how you are going to respond to that line. You heard something cleaver recently and you are going to use it as fighting words. You say, " This is not a pyramid, your job is a pyramid, you have a CEO and Management, and Employees who will never make as much as the guy on top, the only difference is I will control my own income, and not someone else tell me what my time is worth". As you are saying these words from your flaming mouth, your flicker is not as bold and beautiful as it was before you started talking to the Hydrant. In fact you don't really feel that unstoppable right now, and there's not skip in your step. You feel like you need to protect your flame before it dies, not realizing that you are playing a part in the die down of your own flame, that can be more destructive then the Hydrant. Then it happens.
The Hydrant is fully assembled and it's heard your pathetic come backs and without so much of blink, as if the Hydrant was Quick Draw Mcgraw you are being doused out. You left a little room for doubt and that's all the hydrant needed to see. Fire is strong and powerful. Fire knows that it's untouchable literally, there is no doubt when it comes to being a fire. Fire is the most confident thing around. People are told all the time not to play with fire, so fire already knows it's got nothing to fear, but fear itself. Well fear is hear, in this moment fear has appeared and becaue a doubtful flame will never flicker with delight, you are put out. The Water Hydrant has doused you. As the water hydrant continues to spray where your cartooned flame use to be, all the brilliant color of your cartoon has been washed away and lays like swirly paint in a water puddle on the ground. Your vision is much different now. Life has become dull again. Everything goes back to how it was before you felt really good. You are not a cartoon flame anymore, you are a human, living in a human world, where humans forgot how to think big because they long for the convenience of safety. As your colored world melts away and into the storm drains, the water hydrant is still there and feels satisfaction. The Hydrant is so happy it was able to bring you back to real life. He feels like he saved you. Now that you see the world in real time, you are not so excited about your desires anymore. You feel blah, and you feel disappointed. You thought people would be happy for you. It's like if you are 35 years old, and spent your entire life in prison. Should not the other prisinors congratulate your release. They know they want it to, but there time has not come up yet. They still have to wait, not knowing that they are really in control of their release date for forsome reason they stay resisting their very freedom.
You go on about your life doubting yourself and losing site of your cartoon dream. You make yourself comply with the norm and you become fearful of ever moving in that direction again. You even lie to yourself, and take on the belief that the idea of working for yourself is a ridiculous one. Everytime you talk yourself out of being good, doing good and having good. The process of coming back to reality did not feel good at all. All you can do now is second guess yourself. You are unaware that your flame, although no longer as brilliant as it was, never went all the way out. Your fire can never be completely done. Well it can be done in this realm, when it leaves your body to go to the next realm. Even if you died in this very moment, your flame still flckers , but in this real time as you live and breathe, your fire which is your energy can never be competely put out. It's connected to a very divine source. You can always get back to where you were. You can always rebuild your flame. You don't know that though, actually you do know this but you just forgot. You feel stuck for life. Infact you have given up on this earth so much, that you spend your time thinking about how great heaven is with it's pearly gates and golden sidewalks. "Things may suck now, but that's because I'm on earth and life is suppose to suck on earth, it's part of our test into heaven. I'm going to just do right so I can make sure I go to heaven, because this life is hell enough"
Your flame is flickering on low and desperately wanting to grow into a healthy strong fire, but you won't let it. You are scared too. You did not like the way it felt when you got dowsed by the Hydrant, and the triip back to reality is enough to drive a sane person crazy. You want to play safe now. Anytime you start to feel that good feeling that makes you the brilliant person that you are you squash the yummie with yuckies again.
I'm here to tell you to pick up those colors and create your world again, the way you want it, and if you had a clue in the world your new vision will be hydrant free. If any other destructive thinking shows up in your life, look up at the Source of your flame and keep moving toward your desire. Press go, collect all the money your want and don't stop for any thing that will ditract you from what you want.

Life here on earth as far as we know, runs in an oderly fashion. There is just about a smidgen more than 365 days in a year. The sun gets up every morning and does it's part, the plants on earth do theirs and pretty much every living organism knows what to do with their lives accept human beings who most times have no clue but do what they do by default because they were meant to do it, becasue humans were meant to use energy to create and expand the universe. This can be a bit deep, but you can read more about human beings and our role on earth in my soon to be released ebooks being sold by Barnes and Nobel.
In this particular entry I want to focus on what order means in our lives, and how order or the lack of order can be an indicator to what we have going on subconsciously. Before we move on, let's stop for a moment and think about the word subconscious. We have heard it before, and we may have thrown it around prematurely at times, not really understanding the meaning of the word subconscious, or even consciousness for that matter. In order to understand how order works in our lives, we must understand the terms subconscious and consciousness. Consciousness is being aware of your being. You understand the simplicity of being and you are willing to expand your universe by simply being. Consciousness is understanding this time space continuum, and what role we are playing in this space. The subconscious is where the egg meets the sperm. It's that point of conception, it's the beginning of a thought or idea that wants to be born into the physical. Depending on how this subconscious idea manifest itself in the physical has a lot to do with the health of the Spirit.
Many people are so concerned with the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and just the body in general, but what about keeping the spirit healthy as well? The spirit is forever and the body is temporary. We live on eternally because we are immortal spirits. So it's more important that our Spirits are healthy, so that our bodies can be healthy. When are spirits are ill, meaning the vibration is low we will manifest unwanted experiences into our lives, that can show up as physical ailments, or unwanted circumstances. Many times illness is a direct reflection to what is going on in the spirit.
We are or at least we should be conscious about our subconcious. There was a time where people could not really identify the subconscious, and the ones who understood it used it to manipulate outcomes in their favor. An example would be a commercial that sent a hidden message to you, that triggers a desire for that particular product. The advertisers are very much aware that making you feel good in that moment will lead to you wanting to satisfy that desire. You will desire the product because you believe that it will make you feel good after using the product.
This is how our lives work, but instead of manipulating others to do what we want them to do, we can actually manipulate our subconscious on our own. Often times we think of the term manipulate in a negative way. "HEY YOU ARE TRYING TO MANIPULATE ME!!" We have been trained to get mad when someone is trying to manipulate us, or rob us of making our own decision without any outside input. We don't like being told what to do, yet "subconsciously" we let that happen all the time. When you become conscious, is when you take that power back, and control your own subconscious. To manipulate simply means to handle or control typically in a skillful manner. Don't you want to know that skill?
Understanding the purpose of order can help you with this skill. It's just one of the many ways that we can manipulate our subconscious. Let's imagine that you have a desk that is very junky and unorganized. Just imagining that alone sends the Spirit a little haywire. An unorganized messy place can trigger discomfort in the Spirit. When the spirit is uncomfortable it loses it's strong signal to the Divine Energy. When this happens the subconscious can not create healthy outcomes. The subconscious will instead create and attract outcomes that are unwanted. Everything is a reflection. If your desk is messy, chances are your car is messy, and your house is messy too, and you have messy rooms in your house. Or maybe your house is not messy, but the organization is atrocious and you really need to get a handle on that.
As spiritual beings when we see the messy room we are taking into our subconscious what we are seeing. What we are seeing is not pleasant so the subconscious reacts to what it is seeing as unpleasant. Unpleasant worries may begin to pop in your head while sitting at your desk, perhpaps your stomach or back hurts when sitting at you desk. Our eyes are receivers more so then site. What we see will send a message to our subconscious who will then translate that feeling into dis easement, and dis easment will trigger thoughts and visions that do not serve you. Similar to tuning into a stations with way to much static, or a bunch of white noise.
Order is key to moving forward in life, and when life is not in order everything else bounces back and forth just like a reflection for ever until someone finally notices that they can change one side of the mirror. You can always change one side of the mirror, you can't change both. For example, if you looked into a mirror, and you kept making motions the mirror will reflect those motions back to you. Wjen you noticed that what you see as a result of the reflection, meaning as you notice your reflection is working off of what you do, you will finally understand that what you do matters. You can then change how you do things, how you think, how you react, how you feel at any given moment, over and over again, and get a different reflection. You have control on the physical side. The mirror will simply reflect back to you what you see. When you see your reflection and keep in mind you only see yourself when you look in the mirror. You would never know what you looked like without a mirror present. Let's stay on this for a little bit longer. If you were making an ugly face and you looked in the mirror at your reflection you would see that you are making an ugly face. If you woke up in the morning and the first thing you saw in your reflection was some type of allergic skin reaction you would notice from the reflection and immeidately feel concerned. Our Spirits are our observers. Our spirits are like mirrors and those mirrors simply do what they see being done but of course the reflection in the mirror is not physical. What we may notice in the reflections are unwanted experiences. We may notice that chaos is being attracted to our lives.
Same thing goes for how we react and engage with our spiritual beings. When we are in a disorderly space, or dealing with unwanted circumstances, or witnessing disturbing acts our Spirts reflect back and those reflections feel like, "butterflies in the stomach" "sinking feelings" "pain" "sadness" "worry" "depression". This is how the Spirit conveys a reflection. Now the bouncing back and forth begins to happen. We see something we don't like. Our Spirts react with diseasment, that diseasment causes unwanted thoughts, those thoughts create more diseasement. We might even stay in the uncomfortable space, ponder and dwell in that negative space, and it just keeps bouncing back and forth and back and forth and back and forth until the phyiscal which is you finally says, " I need to get my life in order because the reflection is not a pleasant one, and only I can change what the reflection is focussed on."
It's very important to understand that an orderly life doesn't mean a perfect life. It means that when experiences show up that you don't favor, you will not allow yourself to stay in that frame of mind. You won't dwell on what feels bad, you will gradually pull yourself from discomfort until you are in a better frame of mind. An orderly life is one lived with intention. You purposely feed the mirror what you want it to reflect back to you. You are manipulating your reflections. You know your power and you are aware of what you are suppose to do as a human being, and the only thing you need to do is make sure you feel good more times than not because when you feel good, you get good.
This is not something that is very easy because if it was easy there would be no growth or development. We must experience a disconnect sometimes just to realize something needs to be adjusted. We may need to experience a fever to let the body know we are sick, we may need to experience flickering lights to recognize a cross in the wiring, we must experience a chilly night to know that we need to have our thermostat checked. Every day there are new experiences for us to take in and reflect. The power comes when we can break away from the trans that holds us captive with discomfort and finally say, "Hey I don't have to feel this way and begin to gradually find our way back to peaceful and productive spirit, manifesting desires with intention.
When we choose to live an orderly life, we will live our lives functionally well.
Every living creature has a role to play here on earth, even the itty bitty busy bees and worker ants. Worker bees are responsible for pollinating the earth and creating honey. They did not go to school to be a bee, they did not ponder on what there roles were on earth, they just get up and do what bees are here to do. They are being of service to the world. There is an energy that runs through bees, the same energy than runs through us. Bees simply "be" and they are aware of what to do daily in order to achieve their goals on earth, which is pollination and honey creation.
Then there are the worker ants. Pesky little things at times, yet they are here on earth for a specific reason as well. They spend all of their time collecting food because they worry about not having enough for when times get rough. They work all day, in and out relentlessly making sure they have. They never get off the ground because they are only focused on collecting and wanting. Ants also run off of energy, yet with the amount of energy they work with being able to lift 20 times its own weight is as good as it gets.
Worker Bees are flying and buzzing with vibration being of service, not just about what they can get, but about giving to the entire earth to keep life moving forward. They unite with other bees to intensify their energy and build bigger. Ants usually walk all over each other with one goal in mind and that's hunting and gathering never making time to engage, just work, work, work.
Busy Bees work with intention. They know exactly what to do. The energy that they are creating from has specifically guided the bees. Perhaps their buzz is an indication that they are vibrating with delight and happiness. With this level of happiness that bees manage to manifest is one of life's sweetest gifts.
The power of being simply means that you are aware and allowing the power of creation to flow through your spirit so that desires can become true in our physical space.
Worker ants just get what comes their way. If it's a cup cake crumb, they will store it. If it's a scrap of bread the ant will store it. It's really all about the ants and what they need, they are only servicing themselves and showing off how much they can collect, yet in any given moment their work can be destroyed.
Busy Bees command respect and are empowered. They don't back down from their desire and they spend their time working toward their end results. Bees are apart of the bigger picture. It's seldom that a Bee gets stepped on, unlike the ant who can work hard day and night only to find itself mindlessly destroyed. Bees can also be taken out of this space that we call earth, but the difference is their energy lives on in the honey. Their gifts are still of value here on earth.
Instinctively both the busy bee and worker ant simply "be" who they were born in their insect bodies to be. Both are here to create in some capacity.
So which one are you? Are you a Busy Bee or are you the worker ant? Neither choice is wrong, because all roles are relevant on this earth. The question is how relevant do you want to "Be".
It's so funny how many people think that the term, "give and receive" is about giving their own money in hopes of getting more money back. You know, it's the usual.... you give the bum a dollar, knowing that, "when you give you receive". The truth is the receiving part nor the giving part have much to do about money. Of course money can be the giving or receiving factor, but that's so physical, and we want more than that. We want to open our minds and truly become aware of what this term means (more so what does this term feel like). When we go beyond the physical nature of thought we finally hear what, "Give and you shall receive", really means. Not the man made word, but what it actually feels like to give and receive. When we really become aware and enjoy the feeling of giving and receiving, we will want more of that feeling, so we keep giving in order to keep receiving.
Being of service is our main priority in life. We learn, we develop, we create, we help, we build, we are definitely being of service to everyone around us. You wear clothes because someone made it, we eat the food that someone grows, and live in the houses that someone built. We are all being of service to one another, rather we know it or not. The young mother on government assistance has given jobs to the ladies who handle case loads. Even throwing your trash away, you are putting food on another mans table. Because the man that comes to collect that garbage is going to get paid very well to do it.
So now we have established that we are all being of service to one another, to some capacity. What about giving? Are we really giving, or are we just going through the motions and receiving what ever we get by default? Meaning are we blindly going about our lives not recognizing how our actions affect everybody else. We go through our daily lives without realizing this or being aware of this. We still receive as a result of us giving blindly, but it's just the minimum compared to what we can accomplish with intention. See, we must really get outside of our bodies right now and understand this, because this may very well change your perspective on life. When we say get out of our bodies, we mean let go of the logical answer.....the learned answer.....let go of that and allow yourself to see beyond the physical.
What is it about you that you love doing? Is there anything you know so much about, and others would even say you were an expert? Can sharing your knowledge be a form of being of service? A form of really giving with intention? Maybe at some point you were the victim of a broken heart, yet you found a way to get over that painful time, and you want to help others escape their pain to. Don't you think other heart broken women deserve to feel good again, and you may have the power to do that? Maybe you have the power to touch peoples spirits by a form of art, or dance, maybe singing. Steve Jobs had a special gift. What if he did not share it with the world? Let's not even think about it, because that doesn't feel good at all to imagine. The basic point is regardless of how big or small your individual talents are, they are to be shared.
When you have a talent, or a special skill taking that talent or skill to the grave serves no purpose in this life. Our talents and skill are to be shared,they are to be given. When you give freely of your talents, we begin to receive anything it is that we want in abundance. Let me explain why. Go back in your rolodex of memories and remember the time you gave somone a gift? Do you remember what it felt like to watch them open that gift? It felt wonderful, right? When you feel good you receive good, right? Now we understand, that when we give of ourselves we receive what we desire by default. Every time because it is a non-physical law.
Sharing our talents naturally makes us feel good, it's our natural high and the feed back that we receive from others is our gift. As we give and show appreciation for one another, we attract by way of physical manifestations what our physical beings will enjoy. So enjoy giving of the spirit, your physical body will be greatful for what it receives.
Don't be afraid to depend on your talents as a way to earn your living. If you are giving from the heart your heart will continue to be fed. If the idea of giving 10% get's people excited. Imagine what is in store for your life when you give 100% of yourself. If you are working a traditional job and it does not bring you joy. Begin to appreciate having employment, and then pour that apprecition into something you enjoy doing, then share that enjoyment with others. It can be as small as a model car or a painting.
You worked all week at your job, and friends are coming over to the house for some beer and football. You have your model cars on display in your living room. Your friends enjoy the beauty of your work. You just gave them a good feeling, and good feelings are really the only reason why we give gifts at all. Give and you shall receive, "Be" a gift to others.
For many years I heard the story of the Garden of Eden. Usually when I heard this story I mostly paid attention to the part about Eve eating the forbidden fruit, and everything just getting really jacked up after that. Lately I've been putting a few pieces of what I've become aware of to really figure out why we sabotage our good fortunes.
The forbidden fruit she ate without permission according to the story was from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. In the story there is another tree there as well, and this tree is the Tree or Life. For many years I've always just really paid attention to the fact that Eve ate the forbidden fruit, but it never dawned on me the significance of these two trees in the Garden of Eden.
When Eve ate the forbidden fruit she became instantly aware of the distinction between good and bad. When she bit that fruit according to my theory she felt for the first time that sinking, scary feeling in the pit of her stomach. She was able to worry about the unknown, the what if's she instantly forgot that she was working in tandem with her Creator, and began to see where she could fail.
She was suppose to just pull from the Tree of Life. This tree had everything she needed and it knew not death, or fear, or what if, or depression. This tree only knew life. God is life, so everything alive has a part of God in it. It didn't matter after she ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, because once she ate from that forbidden tree she would always need to be very cautious as to how she would feel moving forward. By default had she only eaten from the Tree of Life, she would have felt good all the time,but when when she ate from the forbidden fruit she learned the distinction between good and bad and could emotionally transition back and forth, causing unwanted outcomes like death, pain, suffering or anything unpleasant.
In my theory there is no devil, but there is an opposite of good. There must be a good and a bad, a dark and a light, there must be opposites in order to expand. Before Eve ate the forbidden fruit she was able to prosper with the help of negative and positive working together at just the right speed in order to be, do and have anything she wanted.
Here's the deal, have you ever noticed that when we use batteries we need a negative and positive, and when we use electricity it's the same thing. In my theory this goes back to where we came from in the very beginning. According to Scientist, the earth was created when a Star exploded. Stars have something going on inside of them that is a lot like what we have going on inside of us. The struggle of wanting something, but not wanting to do the work. The two just don't go together, and that's what is happening inside stars. Scientist say it's gravity and something called fusion that basically repells each other.
When we join opportunities we want what that opportunity offers, but we don't want to do the work. Just like a positive and a negative. It's when these repelling forces finally engage do we experience outcomes.
For example, let's pretend that you want to paint a picture. You love paining and you have an idea in your head for a painting. You are thinking about painting a beautiful ocean sunset, but as much as you want to, just don't really feel like getting around do it just yet. You want to, and you don't want to at the exact same time. Then finally these two repelling feelings finally engage and then voila you are painting the picture you've been meaning to get around to for weeks, months or even years.
The reason why so much time takes place between our dreams and our desires is because of our knowledge of all the stuff that could get in our way. For example with network marketing we have to prospect, we need to get out there and ask people if they want to either be a customer, or participate in our opportunity. People are either going to say yes or no. This is life, even in the most perfect world man kind has the will to say yes or no. Because we understand the distinction between yes and no we cringe at the idea of hearing no. If we never turned the idea of hearing no into an uncomfortable emotion, hearing it wouldn't make a difference. And if hearing "no" did not make a difference we would not let the word no discourage us. Because we are scared of hearing the word no we avoid it, and when we avoid it we are never going to live the dream.
Good feelings and bad feelings omit a signal. Good feelings get good, and bad feeling get bad. Our frequencies bounce back and forth thousands of times a day throughout the day. Had we not had the forbidden fruit we would have never noticed when we are feeling bad, but because we did we will always notice the difference. Not only will we notice the difference, but we are causing see saw of emotions.
An example of this would be the good feeling you get when you purchase a dream. You feel really good, and unstoppable, you can see the money you will make and you are excited. Then you think about the bad things that could happen, poor sales, rejection, week recruits. These bad thoughts, cause bad feelings and bad feelings put out bad frequencies. If you get stuck in this space you will get so much of the unwanted outcomes. When you focus on the good that your business can do you will give off good feelings and you will want to move forward because you are fearless, but the minute you get the slightest since of insecurity you are slowing down your chances to reap your desired benefits.
Does this make since? I know it may not sound like anything you have ever heard before, but that's the problem, had you heard this before your desired outcomes would be more often. The bottom line is, we can't help the fact that we are going to worry about stuff, it's what we do because we are mixed with human. As Spiritual Beings if we consciously transition those uncomfortable feelings into soothing ones, our attractions will be most pleasing.
We are all seeds and were planted here on earth to grow. Regardless of your religious preference the truth is we were planted here on the planet called earth. Similar to a seed, at first glance who knows what a seed will bloom into. Will it be a plant, will it be a flower, will it be a fruit? First things first it must be planted.
Planting with intention is usually being done by two parties. The living being and the seed who want to become a living being, before anything can happen, there must be a connection to a source. On earth the source for growing is a combination of the earth and the sun. So basically something physical being shined on by something it can not touch but can see and feel.
You and I were once seeds. We have grown physically by default, because with the correct amount of soil, sun light, water and oxygen something will grow.
As a spiritual being, which is the mechanism inside the seed, we anticipate what it will grown into. Will you be a blade of grass, a fruit tree a dandelion. What will you be? Better yet what do you "be", right now.
None of us know what we are suppose to be because we are to busy looking at everything else simply be, while at the same time forgetting to be ourselves.
Here’s a mental mini video………… You are a cartooned seed with human characteristics and you have been planted. You don’t know what you are. You can’t see yourself (spirit) you just know you are a seed (human) As a human being ( a spirit in body) experience this life, and looking outward, you begin to pay attention to all of the other seeds. You pay attention to the seeds that are more successful than you in their growth and development (Spiritual Englightenment)
In aw of their progress you the cartooned spirit image forget what you are suppose to do. You lose connection to the source, not entirely but just enough to forget to do what matters. So busy praising others for their talents and creations, turning people into stars, when its really the other way around. What are stars?
The main star for a seed to focus on is the sun.. No good use of sunlight and the growth is not as good as it could have been, if any at all.
As a cartoon seed you see everyone growing into something magnificent, as you stay stunted in your own advancements.
What about us as human beings? Remember we are simply the shell. We are the seed coating. What is inside of us is what matters. This is what defines who we be. For example what is inside a plum seed defines it as being a plum, all the plum seeds to do is stay plugged into earth, and the sunlight and with the proper nourishment mainly water (living water), and Oxygen, that plum seed will transform into the plum. It’s about transformation. People say oh experience a transformation.
People think this means changing into something else completely. Well this is not what it means. When you experience transformation from a plum seed to a plum tree the mechanics inside the plum seed and the plum are the same. On top of this plum seeds don’t simply turn into plum trees, there is a process that starts in the earth ad then begins to show as it breaks through. (again breakthrough used as a word but not explained) We are breaking through meaning growth is beginning to show. You had already started under the soil, but the sprouting gives us that first site of something actually happening.
Now that the break through has begun the seeding can not stop. You can’t be like I experienced a break through and it’s all good now. We want more. We want to experience the juicy plum and it’s sweet taste. In this space we have to wait as the process takes place. Plant the seeds, seed sprouts, turns toward the light, grows with water as it continues to grow it thickens it’s trunk and then begins to grow branches, that grow buds, that grow fruit.
This is who we are. We are the tree of life, if we so choose. We produce fruit. We were once seeds. We grew we developed, we are now fully aware. Maybe by the age 13, we are at the age of accountability. We are aware we are fruitful and now we can bear fruit (ideas) these idea seeds are planted. Now they have to grow but these idea seeds are us we are the seeds we “be” the mechanism that will produce what we are.
Example…..I am a publisher, and I prefer to refer to myself as an artist. There are plenty of ideas inside of me that are manifesting into the fruit that “I am”.
I must first plant my ideas inside of me, because I am made from the earth. I then stay connected to my light source the divine creator of all beings. I water my ideas and nurture my ideas. I breath the breath of life. When my idea sprouts (break through) I don’t stop. I don’t say, “All done what’s next?’ No, I stay focused with intention to work physically with my idea.
Your idea although a spiritually grown idea (organic) must use part physical and non physical (the source of all beings) to manifest into a fruitful experience. If you get too consumed with the physical for example ( the outcome) the soil, the surroundings and environment although important without light, nothing will happen. Darkness is simply the absence of light, however both work together.
What’s unique is that the Tree of Life is what we want, but the tree of knowledge that we are, is that we can produce many different types of fruit all from one tree as long as we the put our focus and our minds on what will produce the best outcome. (The Divine Creator) We must stay connected and let our fruit manifest. We are not attached to what the outcome will look like that is not our concern.
As a fruitful tree we will simply produce. If it is edible it’s because we were focused. This means that if our ideas manifest into something good, we know we were focused on the Divine. I you get something not so “tasty” then something got distracted during that development process.
So you are what you are. You are a production tree. You can have a 9-5 live in a tent or hunt plastic bottles all day and that is fine. Do it with enjoyment and that enjoyment will continue to water you growing plant.
We must make our dreams a physical reality. After work if you enjoy painting then you should paint, and if you enjoy singing then sing, sports then play nature than hike. Having a job doesn’t mean you can not produce your fruit. We want to produce so much fruit so that it’s possible that we don’t need a job having one or not having one doesn’t make the fruit from your tree any more sweeter.
All that is needed to procure your desires is physical, non physical and living water. Nourish your desires. You can do something that you enjoy doing and possibly money will be the manifested result on your tree as more fruit, or you can produce money, “fruit first” and then your desires. You may get less time to eat your fruit when you put your physical work first, but at least you get to enjoy it.
There are human beings right now who only wait to produce money fruit, trying to do it their way, but usually when we do this we end up missing out as we trade 8 hours of our lives a day in exchange. Then there are others who just “be” the procurer of their own desires, and experience money by divine default .
