Why Positive Thinking Works

IMG 00435 300x225 Why Positive Thinking WorksWhen you give a child praise for behaving in a desired fashion, then you help to encourage the personal development of those behaviours into a good habit (life coaching and especially EFT is very effect with children that I have found in my in my practice in Tunbridge Wells, Kent). In the same manner, when you focus your attention on the positive aspects of your life (and life in general) then you encourage more of those positive things to happen until they become your life.

Positive thinking is like praise a child for wanted behaviour and negative thinking is like scolding a child for unwanted behaviour. By praising a child for wanted behaviour, you are by no means ignoring the fact that unwanted behaviour does exist. And likewise, by thinking positively, you are not ignoring the fact that negative influences exist. You are just choosing to put your attention where it does you more good than harm.

Because here is the thing about your attention. It is very powerful. The power of your attention is no less than power of creation. Your attention, like everything else in the universe, is energy. When you focus your attention on something, it is like you are sending a beam of energy to that thing. And when you feed something this energy, you make it grow.

Feeding positive thoughts your attention, this universal energy, the lifeforce that is the source of all that is, is like pouring water on a plant (except you can never overwater it). Or, like blowing up a balloon (except this balloon will never pop).

This is why visualisations work. This is why affirmations work. And this is why positive thinking works.

But as suggested above, the reverse of this is true too. Feeding negative thoughts your attention makes that negativity grow. And this is why fear works. This is why guilt and blame both work. And this is why worry and doubt and shame all work. Because they’re all forms of placing your powerful attention on something negative.

Here is a very simple experiment you can try to see this power in action. Start smiling at strangers. And this is a warm and friendly smile we’re talking about. We all know the kinds of smiles this is not referring to.

When you start smiling at strangers what you will notice is that most of them will smile back at you. Some of them, who are accustomed to smiling at strangers themselves, will do it right away, without blinking an eye. Others will be thrown for a moment, not accustomed to having a random stranger smile kindly at them. Not seeking anything in return. Just passing along a friendly blessing. And you watch – most of these people too will start to show a return smile coming over their face as well.

Yes, in today’s day and age some people will give you a strange stare for smiling at them. But even those people are having fun! Have you ever given someone a strange stare? Fun isn’t its original purpose. But somehow it ends up being fun anyway. And even those sourpusses whose sourness won’t be moved for anything or anyone, they still benefit from your smile as well. Because, whether they like it or not, you just injected a bit of positivity into their world. And that can’t help but do them well. So there is not a person you can smile at, really, who doesn’t somehow benefit from it.

And when you put out that kind of positivity into the world, it can’t help but come back at you.

Now this was just an example, just one experiment – smiling at strangers. But it shows how the smallest amounts of attention placed on positive things produces more positive things for you and everyone you touch.

Manifesting Happiness

“Victory always starts in the head. It’s a state of mind. It then spreads with such radiance and such affirmations that destiny can do nothing but obey.”   ~ Douchan Gersi

Fotolia 29023962 XS 300x200 Manifesting Happiness

To manifest it outside, you first must manifest it inside!

One of the biggest mistakes you can make in life is basing your happiness on your life’s circumstances. Often we tell ourselves that we’ll be happy when some future event happens. “When I can make a little more money, then I’ll be happy”, “When my kid shapes up, then I’ll be happy”, “I’ll be really happy when this rocky period is over!”

The first (and smaller) of the two problems with this is that waiting around for something to happen before deciding to be happy deprives you of all the happiness you can be experiencing right now.

The much larger problem, however, with this attitude that happiness depends on something outside your own conscious intention is that it impedes the manifestation process of attaining the very things that you’re basing your future happiness upon.

How is this? Because in manifestation (as in electromagnetism) like attracts like. Joy attracts joy. Love attracts love. And happiness attracts happiness. Likewise, unhappiness attracts unhappiness, misery and sorrow attract misery and sorry, and so on.

By choosing to be happy now, regardless of your life circumstances you are claiming a tremendous power already always working within you – but now with you in charge. You can choose to be happy in the face of your life circumstances and in so doing will allow the universe to produce in your life the evidence supporting that state of happiness. The life circumstances validating your inner state of happiness.

In other words, first you feel happy then your life reorients itself around that happiness. It does not work the other way around.

If you are waiting for happiness to come in the form of some thing or event, then you will always be waiting for happiness to come. Because even if that thing or event does occur there will always be some thing else for you to instantly attach your happiness to.

Either we take ownership of our emotions or we are slaves to them, always seeking release, never finding it. There’s always something else to want: better looks, slimmer body, a loving relationship. And wants are good – they’re the seeds of creation. But if we’re the type of people who attach our happiness to the flourishing of the plant that seed has the potential to grow into, then every seed we plant will be another reason to put off our happiness for a later date. And another reason to feel anxious and worried and uncertain while we wait.

If you understand the principles of the Law of Attraction, then you know that the all-important third and final step of the process is to allow that which you desire to come into your life. And the way you do that is with feeling – emotion. The process requires you feel now what it will be like to have the fulfillment of your desires, as if it’s already happened.

For example, if you want a new car: you put the intention out there into the universe, you trust that your request has been received and granted and that the fulfillment of your desires is on its way, and then you ready yourself for its arrival by filling yourself to brimming with the feelings of fulfillment that energetically resonate with it. In other words, a new car is not going to come to someone who doesn’t feel they deserve it. And happiness does not come to someone who can’t take it.

When it comes to manifestation, happiness is a desire like any other. To manifest it outside yourself you first must manifest it inside.

Giving to Receive – From The Heart

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” ~ William Arthur Ward

 Giving to Receive   From The HeartWith Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought it might be a good time to reflect the concept that: Giving produces receiving. The energy that makes up everything in the universe is constantly in motion. It is constantly flowing from one thing to another; flowing in and out and in and out again. Like breath. We cannot just inhale. We must also exhale. That gives us life. And likewise, giving of ourselves to another, or to the world gives back to us in life-giving ways.

Giving is a powerful way of engaging in the flow of all that is. It’s like jumping into the rushing river, trusting that the current will carry you somewhere beautiful. By giving, you show the universe that you trust completely that you’ll be taken care of, because how else could we take our attention off ourselves and put it on another? If we didn’t know that we were okay?

By giving, you release energy and make space for new energy to come in. Which brings us to what happens when we don’t give. When we don’t give, that energy stays bottled up inside us. In fact, imagine just that – imagine a soda in a bottle sitting unopened and forgotten. What happens? It loses its fizzle, its life-force, and grows stagnant and distasteful, never fulfilling its destiny. By only taking and never giving, by hoarding (which is really what it is) we cut ourselves off from the flow of energy, of life-force, in the universe, and cause the energy, the life-force, within us to grow stagnant, itself cut off from the flow to which it once belonged.

The way this flow works is amazingly simple – anything we put out into the flow is what we get back, and magnified. In other words, if we put out love into the world, more love is what we receive in return. If we put out scarcity and selfishness, then more scarcity and selfishness is what we receive in return. The flow is quite literal that way.

This knowledge can be an open door for you to walk through and claim untold levels of happiness and abundance. However, before you step through the door, be aware…

Receiving only comes from giving that is done without the intention of receiving any personal gain from the gift. In other words, it must be selfless giving. This is the paradox in the power of giving.

While giving produces receiving – you can’t give with the intention of doing it so that you will receive anything in return. That completely counteracts the gift of giving. So what to do? How do we make use of this knowledge if we can’t use it intentionally?

By cultivating a naturally giving nature within. Start small, looking for ways you can give of yourself, and then do so. It’s okay right now that you know you’re also doing this for your own gain. That will fade in time as the innate and instantaneous rewards of giving build up in you – those being the inner joy and fulfillment that come automatically from giving of yourself to another.

As you keep doing this, you become a naturally giving person. It will simply be a part of your nature. And by then you will no doubt have already started seeing the fruits of your efforts coming back to you, and abundantly so.

When Everybody Wins, You Win

Win Win Situation 300x200 When Everybody Wins, You Win

Win Win Situation

Here’s some great news for you: nobody has to lose.

That’s right – nobody has to lose in order for anybody to win. You do not have to lose in order for someone else to win; and nobody has to lose in order for you to win.

And if you don’t like the competitive analogies of losing and winning, here are some other ways to look at it. Nobody has to fail in order for anybody else to succeed. Nobody has to do without in order for anybody else to be fulfilled.

The energy that comprises everything in the universe is infinitely abundant – that means there is more than enough of it for everyone. Our world may not show much evidence of this sometimes, but that doesn’t discount the fact that at its source – at our source – it’s all available to all of us. The evidence we see in our world to the contrary only shows the degree that power and greed can affect our consensual reality. And how far we’ve strayed from our natural state of infinite abundance.

There’s a term called a “zero sum game”, and it basically means that there is only one winner in the end – winner take all! Any sporting event – football, baseball, basketball, golf – is a zero sum game. As is Monopoly and gin rummy and Clue. But life is not.

Life is not a zero-sum game. Life is not winner-take-all. Life is infinite abundance.

And by virtue of simply being alive we are a part of that energy. In fact, we are one with that energy, which means that we are all one with each other. We are all connected. And that is why either we all win or none of us win. Either we all succeed, or none of us succeed. Either we all have, or none of us has. Everyone is connected, and what connects us is our infinite abundance.

Now, the way that you can engage with that connection is start to come from a place of understanding that you are not in a war with your fellow human beings for a limited supply of food and life essentials. Because it just isn’t so.

When you start to come from this new place of understanding, when you begin perceiving the world as your ally and not your enemy, as being on your side, as being a part of you, then the world starts treating you the same. This in turn makes it easier for you to trust your perception and start treating the world that way – as part of you and you a part of it. And by “the world” we’re talking about the people and creatures and environment that make it up. Because perception is one thing, it’s just a start. Action and behaviour come next.

And when you start doing this, when you start engaging with the world in the universal energetic source of all abundance, you win and everybody wins.

The key to doing this is simple: seek out win-win situations wherever you can. That is one in which everybody feels good in the end. That the solution in some way served their needs. That they were treated as fairly as everyone else.

And just watch how fast things start going your way.

Freeing Yourself Of Resistance To Having What You Want

Relaxation 300x200 Freeing Yourself Of Resistance To Having What You Want

You must be a ‘clearing’ for manifestations to happen.

It’s no secret to you that you are your own worst enemy when it comes to having what you want. The precepts of manifestation are deceptively simple, and it turns out there is actually more we can to do get in its way than to help it along. Manifesting your desires, having what you want, requires freeing yourself of these impediments to their actualizing. And this freedom requires reversing a manifestation misconception we all have lurking inside – namely, that you have to do anything to be fulfilled.

In other words, manifestation requires mostly getting out of your own way.

How do I know that everyone has this misconception inside? Because it is a part of our culture. It is taught to us by our environment from our earliest years, and it is reinforced by almost everything we see in society around us. What is this that we’re taught, exactly? We’re taught how to resist, how to say no, how to defend ourselves, how to keep things and people and thoughts and emotions out. Most of us learn far more about saying “No,” growing up than saying, “Yes.”

Now of course there’s no argument here that we must learn to ward against negative influences in order to make our way in the world, but we cannot do so at the expense of being open to positivity. We must learn, while we practice keeping out negativity, to practice allowing in positivity as well. We must unlearn many of the strategies we’ve learned and that we’ve unconsciously integrated into our ways of being that prevent good things from coming into our lives.

So how do we do this? How do you get out of your own way? The same way you might imagine doing it if your emotions or stress level was getting in the way of your productivity. You would relax. You would loosen up. You would nourish yourself. And you would give yourself a pep talk.

Manifestation is all about energy. Everything is energy at its source, including all that you’re trying to manifest. So manifesting the “energies” you want requires putting out the right energies for their manifestation. To do this you must be a clear and open vessel.

Relaxation helps you shed layers of resistance to abundance. When you relax, you let your guard down – literally (on a physical level) and figuratively (on an emotional, spiritual level). Stretching and exercising makes you a strong and healthy, flexible and – above all – open vessel. Nourishing yourself does the same. And uplifting your spirits with affirmations and positive reinforcement puts you in the space again for good things to come.

And all of these things show the universe, the source of having all that you want, that you love and care for yourself, that you deserve to have all you desire. Which brings us to another important question.

What kind of resistances might a person unconsciously have toward their own fulfillment? For starters, as was just mentioned, a sense of not deserving it. Of not being worthy. A belief in having to work harder in order to be rewarded. Guilt, doubt, worry, shame. These are the resistances we are talking about, the ones that keep us from having what we want. And these are the very energies we must vigilantly shed.

The bottom line on freeing ourselves from resistance to having what we want is that we must remain open in order for good things to have a way in. The first step to this is recognizing that these ingrained resistances exist. And the second step is to cultivate an environment within yourself that is inhospitable for these negative influences to exist in anymore.

The Law of Attraction In A Nutshell

Purposeful Manifestation Through Focusing’

image2 300x300 The Law of Attraction In A Nutshell

Everything Is Energy Including Your Thoughts – What You Focus On, You Attract.

When the book and subsequent movie of The Secret came out, people everywhere were buzzing about its revelation: the Law of Attraction. Revealed as the key to the prolific success of some of history’s greatest minds, like Michelangelo and Thomas Jefferson, the Law of Attraction is a powerful insight into the workings of nature that can be consciously, intentional used as a tool for manifestation. A tool whose ideas underlie many, if not most, other manifestation processes.

As big a “secret” as it may be (or rather, may once have been) it is actually quite a simple concept to understand. It is divided into three steps for manifesting, or “attracting”, anything you want into your life. Those three steps are as follows:

1.      Ask
2.      Accept
3.      Allow

Now let’s break these steps down for you, one at a time.

1. Ask

To have what you want, you first must know what you want. Asking is a process of letting the universe know what you want. And maybe even more importantly, letting it know that you know what you want.

Why is this important? Because in doing so, you’re generating a very clear and decisive energy. The source likes that. The clearer and more definitive, the better. Because it is that clarity of vision of knowing what you want, coupled with the singularity of desire that comes from asking for it that targets the “object” of your desire with laser-point accuracy.

2. Accept

Most people have some experience with step 1. Whether in prayer or goal-setting, most of you reading this have already at one time or another asked for what you want. Many of us also know (some, all to well) the experience of asking for what we want and not getting it. That is because asking for it is only the 1st step of the process, and many people either stop here or worse, take actions completely counterproductive to the law of attraction. We ask for what we want, then we promptly, clumsily get in our own way and thwart it’s manifestation.

What actions? Those they display doubt and uncertainty about getting those goals met. Like whining and fretting and complaining about “not having” it yet. Like worrying about your future should you not get it, or worse taking actions that imagine it not happening instead of taking actions that imagine success.

That’s where steps 2 and 3 come into the picture.

Step 2, or Accept, could also be called Receive, because it’s about trusting that your request was heard, and more, that it’s been granted. It’s the meaning of “Ask and ye shall Receive”: that in the asking, you instantaneously set in motion a cycle of energetic events that has the object of your desire already on its way to you.

So what do you do? You sit back and relax, content in the knowledge that your request has been heard and granted and you can move onto other things. If you don’t, and you constantly obsess over this thing you want to manifest, then you’re showing the universe that you don’t really believe it’s coming. You push it away with your distrust of the process instead of accepting that it’s on its way.

3. Allow

The other way we push the manifestation of our desires away is with a sense of undeserving-ness. We don’t act like we get what we want in life, so our life produces evidence of that. But if we act like we get what we want in life, our life produces evidence of that. We must Allow the fulfillment of our wishes to come into our life by creating the energy that supports their existence.

And the way that we do that is by feeling inside what it’s like (not what it would be like, but what it is like) to have the fulfillment of your desires here and now. If step 2 is about Knowing, step 3 is about Feeling. You must exude the energy of someone who’s living as if their next fulfilment is on its way, like a houseguest. You need do nothing but prepare your home for their arrival.

How Does Soul Retrieval Relate To Practical Psychology?

“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” ~ Jesus Christ

image 171x300 How Does Soul Retrieval Relate To Practical Psychology?

Aura Leakage or Soul Loss

People are not linked up with their Soul, as their personality is not being fully self-expressed, as the Soul is the bridge to Spirit. All therapies try to make people ‘whole’ by linking people with their Soul, whether it’s mental work bringing the person to their Soul or intuitive work, the Soul to the person as in Soul Retrieval.

The way dis-ease manifests:

PHYSICAL LEVEL

MENTAL LEVEL

EMOTIONAL LEVEL

SPIRITUAL LEVEL

Everything is energy, and the different vibration rates of energy are what distinguish ourselves and all manifestation of life around us. We are born with enough energy, what acupuncturists call ‘Inherent’ energy (energy ‘within’), to last us through life. It is said that a body has enough energy to power the national grid for a city for a week. But along life’s path, we can become attached to significant traumatic events, or relationship difficulties that we end up giving our power away, or it can be taken from us. When the power leaves, it creates a ‘vacuum’ in our energy fields, a type of ‘aura leakage’, through which our own soul energy leaks away. This is called Soul Loss.

Soul Loss can happen at any time when we are traumatised, physically abused, suffer from accidents etc that a part of our soul energy splits off and leaves the body and physical world from shear shock, pain and discomfort as an act of healing and preservation, the result of which over time has detrimental effects shown up by any dissociation symptoms like depression, fears, phobias or addictions. At which point the soul energy part needs to be unified with the body again.

Retrieving the power and sense of ourselves, that we gave away or had been taken from us is called Soul Retrieval. And it is the Shaman’s job to seek and return the missing soul from the ‘Otherworld’ or what the Aborigines call the ‘Dreamtime’ where the soul has been trapped, allowing the client to move forward with their life now.

To understand how soul retrieval works, we need to understand the difference between ‘Western – Left brain’ and ‘Native – Right brain’ views.

Some Left Brain or Western Beliefs that lead to separation:

¨      Time is a straight line    Now  ——————–> Future

¨      God is separate from us .i.e. God in Heaven

¨      We are separate from Nature

Some Right Brain Native/Shamanic Beliefs:

¨      Time is in the here and now

¨      Time is a circle    (Medicine Wheel, Circle of Life)

¨      Space is a Dot

¨      Nature has Rhythms

¨      God is a part of us

¨      Everything is connected

Drumming/Rattling/Dancing/Chanting/Praying are rituals to access the ‘Higher Self’ by slowing the brain down. Drumming induces ‘Theta’ brain waves and therefore produces profound changes of awareness.

If reality is a subjective experience, which is the greater reality, the physical world or dreamtime?  What of the Past? Then that could only be a mistaken subjective experience.

If a traumatic event happened to a person many years ago, for that person it is still happening, as they are re-living it in their mind with all their senses. Therefore, the Shaman journeys outside of linear time to the place where that traumatic event is still happening, in another parallel world and find and bring back the soul to the person.

Praying to each of the four directions helps us to get centred by coming out of trance and into ‘Alpha’ energy before going into an altered state of consciousness.

Each of the four directions has special energy powers and is represented by an animal. The powers from the East are represented by the Eagle, the South by the Mouse or Coyote, the West by the Bear, and the North by the Buffalo. To call upon these powers, stand and face each of the directions starting with the East and honour and pray for the animal in each direction. This allows us to become balanced and centred in the Alpha healing mode. When we are centred, then we are ready to call the helpers or guides. The Shaman becomes like a hollow bone, an instrument for Spirit to enter to communicate the Creators Will on Earth.

The Soul is the bridge between Spirit and Body. And only when the physical body is complete or balanced, which takes a life time, can we truly allow Spirit into our Body.

We tend to only express ourselves, not from our gifts of who we really are, but from our lower selves, the emotional level. Our life’s work is to unify Body, Soul and then Spirit. The Soul is sometimes called the reflection of the Spirit, and the personality is called its shadow.

How old is a Soul? Since we are working at soul level, there is always a chance that the significant event happened in a past life before the trauma in this life. You can recognise old souls by their eyes which seem to be illuminated from within. Watch babies and children communicate telepathically through the light of their eyes. Babies pick up adult thoughts by what the adult is imagining .i.e. images or symbols. As we get older we loose that skill as we learn language.

Is a New Soul ever born? Yes, sometimes.

When does the Soul enter the Body? An age old question that nobody can answer truthfully. There are theories that the soul enters at conception, after conception, at birth or shortly after birth. If you believe in a Divine plan, then you may lean towards sometime before birth. But there’s no real need to dwell on such questions as it serves no purpose.

Praying v’s Manifestation

“The greater the ignorance the greater the dogmatism” – Sir William Osler

Jeanie 300x200 Praying vs ManifestationThe whole basis to Lynn McTaggat’s work is that everything is a constantly fluctuating mass of energy which all of creation exists from and it is our thoughts that influence this mass of energy which shapes our individual reality. And that God = Zero Point Field or Cosmos or The Source Or Mystery. Coming from this belief, it is hard to imagine that God is a person!
Therefore, God is only a label and not a male person. The only advantage to referring to God as a person is that it makes it easier to explain life in some way, in much the same way Native Americans refer to stones as the ‘stone people’ or the ‘tree people’, because everything has consciousness.
The main disadvantage of referring to God as a person though is that you set beliefs that God is up there in the sky which leads to beliefs of separateness between us, nature, the universe, and God, which the planet is now suffering as a result.
As we are all one with everything, then we are also rain. So you pray rain. If you pray for rain, then you are not accepting that rain is a part of you. This old way of praying rain is like visualising the rain and experiencing the essence and quality of the rain/water, this way you are sending out the water vibration and then celebrating that it rained, and because it was good for the whole or good intent it actually rains.
Now, suppose that you wanted to pray for Peace as you were angry at politicians or whoever, the prayers would have no effect because of the anger vibrations rippling out. Therefore, you take on inner peace then you are naturally sending out the Peace vibration.
If you want to pray for a person’s health, you try and stimulate that person’s own healing within, by imagining/visualising the person in good health. This would be a healthy prayer coming from peace, love, compassion etc.
What we’re doing is ordering our life in the best possible way. You attract by your own ability to attract and manifest. You can only do the above if you believe that you are a co-creator or part of God. Then you have a part of creating with all. Part God is part of the Whole.

I think what Gregg Braden has said is spot on about the book Secrets of The Lost Mode of Prayer, “allowing no room for the conscious filtered mind to take a hold. Praying rain helps you avoid one’s inner critic” I would call that similar to having a ‘personality’.
If you just pray to God in the hope that He will make things better, then He will either give you what you want or not depending if you have been good or not. Then praying becomes about trying to change God’s mind, as though he had a personality to change!
If you were to create not coming from, ‘for the good of everybody’ there would be a payback in Karma by dealing with the karma. Not because God judges whether it is right or wrong as God is the Cosmos and the Cosmos does not judge.
Only when you have trust in yourself, others and the trust in the universe’s plan will anyone have true Power and Wisdom.
