Create what you want in all aspects of your life
I first learned that there was a "skill" to manifestation, when I read Shakti Gawain's book Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Life, back in 1982.
In those days it was believed that all you had to do was change your conscious thought process by repetitively reaffirming the things that you wanted; using the first person and the present tense. For example: I am healthy and weigh 120 lbs. now.
I religiously wrote my affirmations on sticky pieces of paper and plastered them all over the house, reminding me that my thoughts created my reality and so I needed to think positively. If I could change what my subconscious mind believed then my dreams would manifest.
Today "manifesting" your dreams is slightly more involved and will gladly share what I do.
1. Reprogram your conscious mind, remove negative thoughts and visualize the dream as real.
It is super important to begin to pay attention to what you say, think and do. The notion that "your thoughts create your reality and suffering" requires vigilant mindfulness. Trying to find the silver lining in all uncomfortable situations is key.
Stop complaining. Stop gossiping. Stop using negative words like can't. Stop focusing on what is wrong. Let go of the past. Let go of the drama. Don't get involved in another person's drama. Become aware of the stories that you keep repeating and stop. Accept what is as fact and stop resisting it and blaming others. Own that your life is self made and that only you can change it. Think of things that make you happy. Be grateful for what you have.
To help you stay positive I created a deck of 52 cards with photos taken with love of things that I am grateful for in my life and manifestations that remind you to turn your negative situations into positive ones.
2. Reprogram your sub-conscious mind, let go of limiting beliefs and live as if the dream is already a reality.
"You don't manifest what you want, you manifest what you believe".
Reprogramming your subconscious limiting beliefs is more complicated and even more important since our subconscious mind rules our reality even more than our conscious thoughts. Over the years I have studied many ways to track the negative cellular memory that results from traumatic childhood experiences and unknowingly sabotages our adult life and recently landed on Healing Codes. When you see the same negative outcome over and over or are triggered by the the same events it is more than likely a subconscious limiting belief that can be tracked and cleared.
A Healing Codes session take about 45-60 minutes but can be life-changing. Together we talk through an upsetting situation, track it back to its' inception, remove the negative cellular memory, replace it with an affirmative statement and new image. You perform the healing code on yourself and over time the sabotaging behavior fades and is replaced with positive outcome.
3. Raise your vibration, live in the present, forgive yourself and others and be grateful.
I first read Power versus Force by David Hawkins in 2000, the year my son Louis was born. The notion that "like attracts like" was something that had fascinated me for years and I had seen it hold true in my own life. My mother always said, 'water attracts its own level".
Hawkins explains that everything: emotions, living things, countries and inanimate objects hold a level of energy that can be measured on a scale from 1-1000 where shame, guilt, fear and anger are less than 500 and love, joy, peace and gratitude are over 500.
In order to have what you want you need to be at least at the same level of energy of that which you want to attract. Raising your consciousness to over 500 makes for much faster, easier manifestation of your dreams.
In order to do this it is important to choose your friends wisely and spend time only with people who elevate you. Attend inspiring events that elevate you. Let go of the past and the future and BE in the present. Forgive yourself and others. Meditate to stop the chatter in your mind. Spend time connecting with your higher self by following your intuition. Trust your intuition.
Esther and Jerry Hicks wrote a wonderful book called "Ask and it is given", teaching us that when we experience contrast in our life it helps us to know what we want. then all we have to do is ask and stay in high vibration so as to align with the receiving of it.
