I think one of the greatest services we can do for others
is to do for ourselves and be an inspiration to our fellow humans by creating
and living our own dreams. I confess that often when I want to do something new or a big change, I research and research how someone else did it. Then, after reading about 10 different other
people who did the thing that I want to do; I think to myself “Oh I can’t do that I am not
qualified or educated in that field or experienced. Who am I to do “that” thing that I want to do?” And what happens next? I have talked myself right out of my brilliant idea that I want to do because of looking at “everyone” else on how to do it or express it.
At this point, I have come to know that two things are going on
1.) FEAR of change, going out of my comfort zone etc
2.) I am leaning on others experiences to do something that was put on my heart to do.
I am leaning on others by reading about them, checking out their websites, books, their “about me” page etc. Then I compare me and my experience, education, etc. and then sometimes I call a few people and ask them about this and that and how I should proceed. After all that I decide” oh I can’t do that. I am not good enough. Why did I even think that?” And I have defeated my own dream by leaning on others and not my own inner I AM, God and Universal Knowledge and inspiration. How many times have you
This morning I was meditating on this particular big idea and how to go about it and I opened one of my favorite books, “Creative Mind and Success” by Earnest Holmes. I opened to this page: Don’t Be A Leaner.
Hmm, I am not a leaner I said to myself. I mean I make my own way blah
blah and all that I manage, coach and run a successful business. Then it hit me, yeah, I am a leaner at times. In summary it says that we are enough, we have our own God given genius within our souls. Our job is to unearth this genius from within and we can never do that by looking to others for guidance. The Divine spark must be fanned into a blaze of the living Fire of your own divinity.
To thine own self be true. Self-Reliance is the key to dwell upon. Listening to your own voice as it speaks to us in ways that are completely understood by us. And to trust in yourself more than you trust in anyone else. Stop looking for others when you already know the answer, to your own question, dream, and desire. I think a lot of times we are just afraid of the answer. That it might be too hard to do so we look to see if there is an easier, faster, less painless way to our dream or desire! I know I can get caught in that
illusion. I have also discovered and learned through experiences good and bad that it is better to face the fear and do it. Because when I am afraid to do something, I should do it. That is
usually my ego wanting to stay comfy and in the safe known area.
Every one of us has within our own soul’s direct communication with the Divine energy, Infinite Understanding. When we lean on other people we are trying to light our path with their light.
In the end of the short chapter it goes on stressing our own strength and oneness with Infinite Mind. It specifically advises: When you have a real thing to do, keep it to yourself. Don’t talk about it to anyone. Just know in your own mind what it is you want and keep still about it. Often, when we have a big idea we go out and blab to everyone about it and next thing you know it has lost all its power. Because people respond by being confused, questioning or even laughing about it and it becomes confused and
then it is manifested as confused.
When you have an idea, keep it to yourself, be focused, get the mental picture of it, make it
perfect in mind, enlarge your thought and pass it over to the creative power that is behind all things, wait and listen and when an impression comes to you, trust it no matter how crazy and follow it with assurance. Never talk about it to anyone. Never talk negative or pay any attention to negativity and you will succeed where others fail.
Blessings all around you.
This affirmation works wonderfully and quickly, I saw it happen when someone close to me experienced sellling her home within days of saying this affirmation and visualizing it. And the house sold for the asking price too!!
From the Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy:
Infinite Intelligence attracts to me the buyer for this home who wants it and who prospers in it. This buyer is being sent to me by the creative intelligence of my subconscious mind which makes no mistakes. This buyer may look at many homes, but mine is the only one he/she wants and will buy because he is guided by infinite intelligence within him/her. I know the buyer is right, the time is right and the price is right. The deeper currents of my subconscious mind are now in operation bringing both of us together in divine order. I know that it is so.
When you say this affirmation and any affirmation couple it with a visualization of the desired results. For example, in the book Dr. Murphy talks about how he put his house up for sale and then that night before sleeping asked himself what he would do when he sold the house. He said he would take the for sale sign in the front yard down and throw it over his shoulder and say I don’t need this anymore. Feeling the satisfaction of the end result.
Remember, always that what you are seeking is also seeking you and whenever you want to sell a home or property of any kind, there is always someone who wants what you have to offer.
Using affirmations to change, improve and reprogram our subconscious minds work wonders and do bring about wonderful changes in our lives. The main point about working with affirmations is that you want the wording to work for you. Feelings and emotions behind a thought is what helps the speed at which the desire manifests. Therefore, it is important
that your affirmation sparks those good vibrations, feelings and emotions to get the manifesting ball rolling. For example, some people like lengthy ones and others like shore and sweet. Some like it to rhyme and some like to sing it. Whatever works for you is best. But as you are saying your affirmation you will notice how well they are working by what your dreams reflect you.
Let’s use money as an example. You are needing some money or wanting to add more prosperity to your life so you start using an affirmation: People Love To Give Me Money. And you are saying this all day and night
to yourself and having a great feeling and thinking Wow this is great and then that night you dream a dream that is dark and dreary etc. The dream points out to you that you have a block to receiving money
or that you just don’t believe that people would randomly give you money. Voila! the block is revealed. Thank yourself for pointing out this subconscious belief. This block can be changed but until you dreamt it you were unaware of this subconscious belief or disbelief and an affirmation will work for you once you change that belief.
In fact, any of us who are not in the flow of money and prosperity have some kind of basic subconscious block to riches and prosperity.
How do you change the blocks? in a word, visualization. I suggest that you take your ‘block’ and I will continue here with prosperity. Get into a meditative state, or just quiet the mind. Now repeat your affirmation
and see, feel and hear the affirmation – use all your senses in a scene that you could conceive and believe happening.
If you cannot conceive the idea and believe it with all your heart then you must use an affirmation that works for you.
Once you find the affirmation that clicks with you and as you change your belief (block) in your subconcious mind your night time dreams may show you how you are progressing or your dreams can also show you when you need to change your goals or when outdated beliefs are blocking your way of real spiritual truths.
Positive money beliefs in dreams can be represented by having gold, silver, money, jewelry, being surrounded by oppulence in your dream backgrounds, luxury, etc
Sweet, Prosperous Dreams!
