Manifestation: The Problem of Proof

Fotolia 53207016 XS 300x200 Manifestation: The Problem of Proof

Trust That Your Prayers Will Be Answered By Saying Thank you!

A problem most of us face in trying to manifest the things and situations we want in life is proof. For whatever reason – maybe human nature, maybe the scientific method – we tend to require proof of things before we believe in them. The problem with this is that manifestation doesn’t work that way.

Think of it this way:

If a person wanting to lose weight bases their diet on proof that it’s working, they’ll likely never stick with the diet long enough to see it to fruition.

If a person wanting to curry the affection of a certain party was waiting for proof that party returned their secret affections, they may never take the initiative that would break that ice and get the romance underway.

In my life coaching sessions in Tunbridge Wells, Kent I am telling people all the time: in the language of manifestation, proof comes second; belief and trust comes first. Decisive action comes first. Decision is action, in the language of manifestation. You demonstrate your belief and trust to the universe by taking decisive action upon it, independently of any proof that what you’re doing will yield the desired results.

Proof is a hindrance. A barrier. An obstacle to getting what you want. Decisive action is your way through it. Then proof will follow. Whenever you feel blocked, try this exercise:

1. Think of a goal, then visualise it and ask yourself ‘How does it feel to have it?’ Ideally, something you’ve wanted to manifest but feel stifled taking action on, perhaps because you’re waiting for something else to happen first.

2. Imagine a Genie in a Lamp granting you this wish, this goal. You still have to take the actions required to get it, but you are now guaranteed success. The other chips that are out of your control, those things you’ve been waiting to happen first, will fall where they must to ensure your success.

3. What is the first or critical actions you would take, knowing this?

4. Take that action.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 as necessary, until you have achieved your goal.

The Native Americans always say ‘Thank you!’ after their prayers for something; it’s an act of trust that the answers to their prayers are on their way. We too can act ‘as if’ it’s a done deal. Have trust in the universe!

’til we meet again,

Walk in Beauty;
Walk in Peace.

Happy National Adoption Week. It makes us strong to be the best!

As it’s the 5th November, not only is it Guy Fawkes night (in UK) but it’s also the start of National Adoption Week. To mark the occasion, Mike Skinner from Radio Uckfield kindly agreed to have me on his show. Part 1 is about 7 mins long about how I was adopted, events leading up to it and how I found out I was adopted. Part 2 is also about 7 mins and is about how I found Betty, my biological mother.

PART 1 – Being Interviewed with Mike Skinner on Radio Uckfield

JOHNATHAN bROOKS PART 2 by Mike Skinner Radio Uck

Just managed to get to my intereview on time for 11am with Mike. I almost had to ring in to say I’d be late as a car was on it’s side just outside Crowborough as I made my way to Uckfield. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured.

Anyhow, I made it with about 10 mins to spare.

Feel free to write comments or share.

Enjoy!

Customer Reviews So Far
5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for Interacial Adoptions September 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Two Worlds shows the pain and anguish and bitterness of Transracial Adoptions of Native children into English homes. This is a must read for any couple planning to adopt across racial lines. The stories of Secrets being kept, hidden agendas and the attempted distruction of a culture. Each story is different, each story is the same. For Native readers, it bring out the worst side of assimulation. For adoptees, it gives strength that they too can find their lost culture. For those planning to adopt, I hope it is informative about how Secrets can destroy families. Well written with lots of facts and information.
5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful book! September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
This is a great book to read! it tells of different stories from Native American adoptees in their way of how they have or are dealing with being an Indian adoptee and how it has affected them. Trace is a great author and being an adoptee herself, has understanding of what she writes. No assumptions… Again, this is a must read!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Honest History September 29, 2012
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
Well-written account of native children removed from their culture. It includes the history of government involvement in their adoption, removal and intended assimilation. It features interviews of adoptees and gives insight into their struggle with self-identity issues. It is their story. It is their truth. It is part of American History that needs to be known and not forgotten. My sister was taken away and kept from me. I did not know she was kept from me until I read the book today. There is still so much to learn from each other. Everyone has a truth. Everyone has a story. Thank you for putting these stories together.

 

 

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.

’til we meet again,

Walk in Peace;

Walk in Beauty.

“When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inward and examine ourselves” ~ Confucius

Now, why do you think he said that?

heyokah When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inward and examine ourselves  ~ Confucius

Heyokah

Well, did you know that the Native American tribe the Cheyenne (and other’s) within the tribe had a society called the Contrary Society. And if you remember the film with Dustman Hoffman ‘Little Big Man’ there is a scene of a Cheyenne Contrary who rode his horse backwards and rode on a different path than the rest of the tribe. The actual scene clearly can’t be taken seriously as it was directed to be a funny scene.

However, there is wisdom and teachings here related to the Confucius quote.

When you are focusing on a problem, you are working the Left brain (Beta brain wave vibration) by sifting and categorising by logical analysis, expressed physically outwardly through right hand side of the body, Yang energy. In this state, no one can really solve a problem and therefore contrary to the way to solve problems.

In Native American teachings, Contrary, Coyote, Heyokah or Trickster wisdom shows that this is not the way to look at things. An alternative view is needed. The magical Coyote (Contrary) is the Tricksters ally. He turns up to ask you to ask yourself what you are doing and why? What change in attitude do you need? The answer could be the exact opposite, the contrary, of the answers you would find for the self i.e. Not the logical answer. Think of the ‘Fool’ in Shakespeare’s play, ‘King Lear’. Whenever the King is being foolish the Fool either walks off scene or stands still and watches his King act the fool instead!

For the left hand brain thinkers amongst you who still quite don’t get it, think of Albert Einstein, not that great in math’s (left brain logic), asked questions in images and solved problems in an ‘Alpha’ state (Right hand brain), away from his Left hand brain ‘Beta’ state.

So what alternative solution are you being asked today?

As you can tell, Contrary, Coyote, Heyokah or Trickster wisdom are one of my favourite characters.

’til we meet again,

Walk in Peace;
Walk in Beauty.
