Following Your Heart

Following Your Heart

Remembering that one day you are going to die, is one way to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose if you do not follow your heart.  This will help you make the big choices in life because almost everything, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure, will just fall away in the face of death.  Growing old and passing away is a destination we all share.  

Death is life’s change agent that clears out the old to make way for the new and right now the new is you.  So, would it not be in your best interest, to lead the most healthiest, the most rewarding, the most meaningful life possible.  Hold hands with loved ones and friends, listen to their woes, assist with their ailments if you can, help them overcome their fear of illness, their challenges and the reality of dying.

Building Choices

Building Choices

Many of us know what we should be doing and don’t do it.  We know we shouldn’t eat that chocolate cake but we do it and then we exercise harder the next day to compensate for it.  Having a choice means that you are capable of feeling more than one thing.  Choice is when you can think on purpose, not when you’re a victim of your thoughts and your thoughts are a bunch of involuntary stimulus responses.

Setting Good Directions

Setting Good Directions

The feeling of being successful is knowing where you want to go and being prepared to put in whatever work necessary, to get to where you want to be.  You realise that you need to practice and practice and practice your skill.  When you make a mistake or fall short of your goal, you don’t complain, you simply shrug it off and do it again until you get it right.  

You know what your idea of perfection looks like.  You can see it being done perfectly and you place yourself inside your picture carrying out the action.  When you don’t get it right, you don’t feel bad, you simply don’t feel anything.  You are determined to build an addiction to trying, to get hooked on a good feeling.  Even if you only get it right one out of ten times, that good feeling when it arrives makes it worthwhile.  By contrast, some of us just feel bad whenever what we decide should happen, does not work out that way.

Enduring Change

Enduring Change

At some level or other, we all move from one trance to another. We accumulate so much knowledge from walking to talking that our brain quickly learns how to automate behaviour.  We tend to learn by repetition with sleeping and dreaming being important pathways in the learning process.  Quality information is important otherwise the brain will just process nonsense if it hasn’t anything specific to work with.

The Seed of Purpose

The Seed of Purpose

Very few people achieve any degree of financial success regardless of their level of income during their most productive years.  Most people live their lives under the delusion that they are immortal.  They squander their money, their time, and their minds with activities that are tension-relieving rather than goal-achieving. Most of us work to get through the week with the hope that we have enough extra money to spend on the weekend.

Taking Control

Taking Control

We tend to trap ourselves by the way we run our mind.  Through our five senses, we take in the information from our environment and interpret that through images, internal dialogue, sensations, tastes and smells.  The way we represent our world internally, determines the way we feel, what we do and reflects our automatic habitual way of thinking.  Taking control of our life, creating our dreams and desires, stems from the way we think.  It is the fertiliser we place on our seeds toward success.  How we feel, reflects our mental state of being at any given moment.

Our Learning Process

Our Learning Process

As human beings we tend to learn automatically because we are born with the wiring already in place.  We develop the means to communicate with other people of our kind not only with language but also with behaviour.  Some of the behaviours we turn into bad habits and some we turn into good habits. Our behaviours, our habits run automatically when they are memorised and programmed into our DNA and our mind for eternity.

Do You Thrive or Just Survive?

Do You Thrive or Just Survive?

Are you one of those people who thrive, or are you one of those who just survive.  I doubt if there is anyone who has said that they love problems and yet many have admitted that their greatest gain came from the middle of their pain.  Each time we encounter a painful experience, we get to know ourselves and our friends a little better.  Pain prompts us to face who we are and forces us to acknowledge where we are at present.  What we do with that experience defines who we become as a person.  We know life is filled with ups and downs and yet we all want ups and ups of which we also know is not possible.

Spiritual Success

Spiritual Success

People need to be the most important thing in your life because without other people there is no personal growth.  You will either be involved with people, be dormant or give up your physical body and pass on.  The more you are aware, the higher your energy frequency will be.  On a spiritual level, you can always move to a lower frequency but souls of a higher frequency need to come to your level to relate to you.  You need to learn to play the game of society and that means living in two worlds at once, the material and the spiritual. 
 
When you decide what you want to do with your life, you can then mould it into a form of useful service. That is why it is important to plan ahead and obtain positive outcomes to give your life meaning.  Having enough money to spend will not be your greatest challenge.  Your greatest challenge will be to decide what you want to achieve out of life.  To grow into what feels right for you takes cautiousness and discipline to stay alert.  You are the only one who can keep you from your success.  The moment you want praise you will attract blasé people who feel you owe them a living.

Material Success

Material Success

Most people equate success with the amount of material wealth they have accumulated. When you live your past glories you will be afraid to try something new for fear of making mistakes. You will want to hold onto things to give yourself security and the more tightly you hold onto things, the more controlling and tense you will be.   The more you fear the more you will become possessive and will tend to want many material possessions around you.  The greatest fear of all fears is the fear of separation from all your material possessions and the death of your physical body.

Energy flow through your body

Energy flow through your body

Located around your body are energy centres called Chakras.  When the universal energy enters your body it begins its journey at the Crown Chakra located at the top of the head.  The energy then flows through your body to the other chakras and out through your Third Eye located at your forehead.  The Crown Chakra is associated with self acceptance and having a conscious detachment from personal emotions.  It is usually associated with the colour violet for enlightenment and white for balance.  It has healing qualities that stimulate the spleen area and often helps you to meditate, reflect and absorb spiritual information.

Subliminal Effects of Colour

Subliminal Effects of Colour

Many of us choose colours instinctively without any regard to how they interact with our feelings.  Colours can make you feel healed and stimulated or sad and lethargic.  Have a look at your wardrobe of clothes.  Most likely they are predominately a certain colour because of how they make you feel and look.  For example red clothes can make you feel warm and stimulated.  Pink often has a feeling of compassion, love, empathy and calm.  Blue clothes can say that you are a private, loyal and a thoughtful person.  Black clothes often make a statement to the world that you are going out there to discover yourself and have some fun.   When you wear all the colours that unite to create white or rainbow, you may have a desire for some soul searching and inner joy or a transformation of consciousness.

Experiencing What You Know

Experiencing What You Know

Life is a process by which your soul is seeking to experience what it knows and have a feeling for that.  It is along the spiritual path that your soul arrives at complete knowing and along the physical path that you achieve complete experiencing.  This is why you are living in two worlds right now, as both paths are needed to produce complete awareness.  Home is a place called completion however long that takes and when you ultimately have it all together.  Experiencing what you know and knowing who you are, is arrived in stages.  Each passage through a lifetime can be considered as one of those steps.

Too Much Pride

Too Much Pride

The more pride you have the more you will be operating within the boundaries of your intellect.  Pride is based on your emotions.  Your emotions are your intellectual feelings which are learned reactions.  When you have too much pride you will be afraid to assert yourself for fear of someone hurting you and too proud to admit you are confused.  You will defend yourself even though you are not sure you are right.  When things do not go the way you had them organised, your pride will be stimulated because of your expectations.

The Need for Attention

The Need for Attention

If you need attention you can be easily manipulated because you are trying to please someone.  Resentfulness will build if you do not get what you want because you have allowed people to infringe too far into your personal boundary.  If you play the big shot role for attention you can easily become someone’s pawn.  It is easy to fall into the glory trap because people want to capture what you have and become devoted to you.  That is alright when you are living in a nice comfortable bubble of protection but when you are on a pedestal it is easy for you to topple.

Competition

Competition

Competition comes from environmental pressure to get ahead and succeed.  At birth you are just a bundle of feelings just being yourself with no expectations.  Your parents teach you to compete in order to accomplish things.  You are taught how to achieve instead of just doing things for the joy of it.  Society places an emphasis on winning the game, having the highest grades and being the most popular.  This gives you a false sense of superiority, pride, complacency and loyalty, which creates separation and greed.

Feelings of Devotion

Feelings of Devotion

In our society we are taught to lean on the theories of other people.  If you have this thought stimulated enough you will develop feelings of devotion to a person or a cause outside of yourself.  Your need to be needed can cause other people to be devoted to you.  This can lead to a two-way street with a dead end in either direction because you will both be controlled.  Devotion has associated feelings of power, expectation, control and manipulation.

Zones of Consciousness

Zones of Consciousness

A physical body is needed to anchor your soul on this planet so that you can learn through experience.  As long as you are here with a body you have the opportunity to mingle with all levels of awareness.  The zone of consciousness of a soul with a physical body is one of aspiration, action and achievement.  When your soul departs your body, your energy pattern will gravitate to a level of awareness where everyone has more or less the same level of consciousness.

Being Decisive

Being Decisive

We know the decisions we make today can often determine our destiny tomorrow and yet often we keep changing our mind.  The greatest secret to creation is to keep choosing the same thing over and over again.  Once is not enough.  Do it over and over until your will is made manifest in your reality.  This could take years months weeks days or be instantaneous.  You can tell when you are on track when you see the gap closing between willing and experiencing.
