Writing Your Own Future: A Visualisation

The past is in the past. It’s behind us and there’s little to nothing we can do about it. What we can do, however, is put our eye on the future and plant our feet in the present and get moving toward the life of our dreams.

Because you can do that, no matter what your past. No matter where you’ve come from, you have the same infinite power to write your own life story from this point on. Everyone can do it, and it’s not even hard.

All that writing your future entails is being as crystal clear as you can be on what that future is like, and then start living from a place of total confidence and trust that this indeed will be your future.

The first part of this is easy. Most of us know what we want. In fact, there’s a good chance that you already have a Want List or a Goal List or some such other similar accounting of the life you dream of. But a list does not a vision make. When we talk about being crystal clear about what you want, we’re serious. You need to gaze deeply into your crystal ball and examine every last detail of this perfect future of yours.

More than just knowing it, you need to smell it, touch it, taste it. The more specific you can be about the future you’re writing, the better. Imagine yourself an author, in fact, penning a novel of this future of yours. You wouldn’t just write, “She got a new house.” You’d be writing about its style, size, color, history, the reason you loved it so much you just knew it was the one you had to have, and the circumstances of finding it and of course, the joyous move-in day.

So that’s the first part. The next part doesn’t seem as easy for people.

Many people set goals for their future and then immediately go back to living their lives as if that future’s never going arrive. But that doesn’t manifest anything more than just life they’ve created for themselves while they’re sitting around waiting for their goals to happen.

You don’t have to make your dreams come true. The universe has already got that covered. You just have to let them come true, Law of Attraction. That is, you have to start acting ‘as if” though you know that it’s going to happen.

You don’t spend much time wondering if your birthday is going to happen each year, do you? Of course it’s going to happen! All you do is start getting ready to celebrate. If you’ve been invited to a wedding, you can be pretty sure that when you show up at the given address on the given date and time, there’s going to be a wedding going on there. This is what we mean by acting as though you know it’s going to happen.

Don’t live your life preparing yourself for your dreams never to come true. Live your life preparing for their imminent arrival. Just like you would have to assemble the right outfit to wear to this aforementioned wedding, you also have to make the appropriate preparations for your dreams to come true.

That means making the choices that align with them happening, and not spending so much time protecting yourself “in case” they don’t happen.

Live life purposefully manifesting, through focusing!

The Law of Attraction In A Nutshell

Purposeful Manifestation Through Focusing’

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.

Live life purposefully manifesting, through focusing!

How to Make 2014 Your Best Year Yet: Part I – New Year’s Resolutions That Stick

As we reach another New Year’s Eve, it’s time to look back on how well we have (or haven’t, as the case may be) achieved our goals of the previous year, and look ahead to how we can achieve more of what we want in the coming year. Sadly, many people find at this time that they’ve fallen far short of their expectations for themselves over the previous year, a fact that’s given New Year’s resolutions a bad name. But the truth is, with millions of people worldwide all setting intentions for the year ahead, there’s no better time to put your energy into the mix and benefit from group intention. So how do you do it in a way that works? How do you set New Year’s resolutions that stick?

The first and most important step is setting specific goals. The more specific you can be about what you want, the easier it is to achieve it, and the more likely you are to be successful in achieving it. For example, a goal of saving £1,000 by December 31, 2014 is a lot more useful than a goal of saving more. Why is this?

Because when we get specific, we put our minds to work. You want to save more? Fine. How much more? Why? What do you plan to use that money for? Why £1,000 and not £500 or £2,000? Why December and not September? All of these questions, and more, come into play when getting specific about your goal. And when you put your mind to work answering these questions, you put more of that psychic, magnetic, manifestation energy out into the universe to help attract that goal to you.

What’s more, getting specific about your goal helps you visualise the achievement of that goal. You want £1,000 to start your child’s college fund? In order to come up with that answer, you actually had to imagine your child going to college, visualise her getting her education, her diploma up there in cap and gown, her first job. Maybe you want £1,000 to redo your bathroom. That gets you visualising the bathroom you want, and that visualisation is what helps draw to you the money necessary to make it happen.

As I tell my clients life coaching in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, the more you know precisely what you want, the easier it is to get it. Use New Year’s 2014 as an opportunity to get more in touch with what you really want. And then hop on the global psychic manifestation energy train of people worldwide making New Year’s resolutions too, and put the power of group intention to work for you.

Wishing you all a HAPPY and ABUNDANT New Year!

Manifestation: The Problem of Proof

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!

Why Positive Thinking Works

When 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.

When You Achieve Your Goal, Ask Yourself:

Now that I have this fully and completely, what does it give me, or allow me to experience? What does this allow me to do or be?

 

Improve Self-esteem – Spirit Bear Coaching

Improve Self-esteem

Life Coaching in Tunbridge Wells, Kent starts with loving and valuing yourself. Low self-esteem can sabotage our every effort at happiness while high self-esteem can be our greatest ally. Fortunately there are many ways to boost your self-esteem, including these:

Express yourself. By this I mean two things:

  • First – to express yourself creatively, through art, writing, song, crafts, cooking, drama, play. Creative expression is a basic human need that often goes neglected. Without it we may feel trapped, alienated, and unfulfilled, all of which can manifest as low self-esteem.
  • Second – to express those thoughts and feelings to other people that you’ve bottled up inside. As I’ve found repeatedly life coaching in Tunbridge wells, Kent unexpressed emotions wear people down and make them feel unsupported by the very person who should care for us most: ourselves!

Know thyself. Be honest with yourself about who you are — including your failings and flaws. Much low self-esteem is rooted in delusion. We may dislike parts of ourselves because we’re dishonest about what we’re seeing or think we should be seeing. Then we judge ourselves based on those false impressions: “I’m a bad mother…child…employee…spouse.”

Likewise we often overlook those aspects of ourselves for which we should be most proud. Taking an honest and unflinching account of who you really are, warts and all, allows you to stand firm in the whole of your being, for better and worse. And that makes you immune to the judgment of others.

Pamper yourself. One of the most enjoyable lessons I get to impart Life Coaching in Tunbridge wells, Kent is that treating yourself with random acts of kindness has the same effect on you that it has on anyone else: it makes you feel good. And because it’s you who’s giving you that, it boosts your self-esteem. P.S. – Pampering others has the same self-esteem boosting benefits.
