Learn how to Become a Conscious Creator and step into your Authentic Power.
We create our own realities, whether we are conscious of it or not. Most of us are unaware of the power of our thoughts and so react to life on "auto-pilot", and therfore create "unconsciously". When we become aware that it is our thoughts that create our reality, we can then consciously choose different thoughts, therefore creating a different reality - this is called "creating consciously". We are the creators of our own life. If we don't like what we have created, we can simply choose to change our thoughts to create a new reality for ourselves - we are more powerful than we realise. We are souls on an evolutionary path, here to experience all that life has to offer - whether it be pain or joy. We choose our pains and our sorrows.
While this concept is now becoming more widely accepted, there are still many out there who will say indignantly, "I did not choose this reality for myself. I would be mad, stupid or both!"
I know that feeling well. I used to wonder why I have created this reality for myself! But I am on the road to find out. I now take full responsibility. The film, 'What The Bleep Do We Know!?' explains the concept of creating our own realities very well. I highly recommend it to you.
We create our realities, whether it be pain or joy, by our self-beliefs. When we understand this, it moves us out of 'victim' and 'blame' role' and into the role of 'Authentic Power', and Creating Consciously, because these experiences, which are simply just 'mirrors' of our beliefs made manifest for us to look at (without judgement), give us the opportunity to learn the lesson in it and change (if we choose).
Simply put.... Change your thoughts and you change your reality. You can continue to create unconsciously, or you can become a Conscious Creator - the choice is always up to you!
"You take your life in your own hands, and what happens?
A terrible thing: no one to blame."
~ Erica Jong ~
"I am the perpetrator of my suffering
- but only all of it."
~ Byron Katie ~
"When you assume responsibility for what you experience
and share what you experience in a spirit of companionship,
that is the same as forgiveness.
When you hold someone responsible for what you experience,
you lose power."
From 'The Seat Of The Soul' by Gary Zukav
"Act is the blossom of thought,
and joy and suffering are its fruits."
~ James Allen, (1864 -1912) - Author of 'As A Man Thinketh' ~
Becoming Aware & Taking Responsibility
I sometimes do not enjoy my reality. But I am learning how it came about and accept the laws of cause & effect that manifests to us through Karma. This new awareness allows me to choose to create a better experience of living and steer away from the pitfalls of my past and also affords me the power to take control of my physical, mental and emotional wellbeing by incorporating Holisting Healing methods.
I just have to content myself that I am 'on the journey' and whatever problems come my way can be obstacles or stepping stones. The important thing is to keep my eye on the goal. Life is a journey, not a destination.
- Wisdom Quotes on Faith
How much blinder are those who stumble through this life, never giving any thought to the transience of it all, or whether they are acknowledging their soul's evolution?
I also know we only have to look around to see those of us who refused to give up, accept the diagnosis, or whatever the hurdle was that life threw in their path. People who could have given up on life but instead fought back! The S.A.S motto "Who dares wins" is very true. These people become beacons of light to others in what can be a dark world.
"You will become as small as your controlling desire;
as great as your dominant aspiration"
~ from 'As A Man Thinketh' by James Allen (1864 -1912) ~
I believe if we want something enough, and become focused and prepared to make whatever sacrifices it takes, there is almost no limit to what we can achieve. It is all in the 'mind set' of that person. (Law Of Manifestation)
"An intention is a quality of consciousness
that you bring to an action."
~ From 'The Seat Of The Soul' by Gary Zukav ~
I believe that a happy person lives in a happy world, a mean person lives in a world of shortage. There is only abundance in nature. For more inspiration, visit Wisdom Quotes on Laughter, Joy, Happiness.
"Poverty hides itself in thought
before it surrenders to purses"
~ Kahlil Gibran ~
I really try to remember this on the regular occasions when I am going down the back of the sofa and through my coat pockets looking for loose change! I cannot stand meanness in a person, it is usually a manifestation of meanness of spirit. It also demonstrates a lack of understanding and faith in the universal laws of giving and receiving.
People can be happy in the most miserable of circumstances. Real happiness comes from within. People can be miserable (and often are) in a situation where they are able to buy anything they like. Material possessions do not bring lasting happiness. Nor do they bring the growth so essential to our souls.
We own nothing anyway. Whatever we have is simply leant to us by the universe. To me, money is simply a means to make choices in an individual's life. It is neither good nor bad.
However, I have lived long enough to know that whatever money came my way would have to be shared. A significant portion would have to be used to help others, or else, it would either be taken from me, or bring me no happiness.
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. "
~ Matthew 6:19-21 ~
In medieval times, patrons of painters believed that if they gave a certain amount of money to the church / artist and had their portraits included in works of art depicting heaven, their souls would be saved! It is not the way the universe works! Men/women will never be able to buy their way into heaven!
Surrending to Faith
Buddhists believe it is easier to ignore the first desire than all the others which come after I agree with that. No sooner have we bought our new coat than we are thinking of the boots, gloves, etc. which would match it. It sets up a 'wanting in our spirits' which robs us of our inner peace.
I struggle along just like everyone else. I have suffered from depression on several occasions. At times it made me want to bow out of my personal play when the curtain comes down at the interval. Although aware I write my own script, depression can give me writer's cramp! Many times I have been too demoralised and exhausted to want to wait around for the next scene.
I know I am not alone in this. I have friends who have suffered far more than I. In that state it is incredibly hard to hold onto feeling that everything is working according to plan.
That is where we step over from action to faith. Sometimes we just have to surrender ourselves to the Higher Power and acknowledge our need to be taken care of until such times as we are 'back in the saddle' of creating our realities. Actually, it's a good idea to surrender oursleves to the Higher power at ALL times.
Spiritual paradoxes are real. Although we manifest realities for our selves, we are supported at all times in the spiritual realm. It is often when we "give up", lose hope", surrender" that spirit has free rein. However, like all things, we should meet Him half way. "God helps those who help themselves".
We have to be prepared to accept failure but never defeat! This earthly existence does not last long. It is far too short to waste in doing what 'others' expect, ignoring in the process, an inner yearning that may never be realised, until it is too late!
"I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest,
with visions to be realised,
than Lord among those without dreams and desires."
~ Kahlil Gibran ~
The Dynamics Of Thought
Mother Theresa used to advise us to "give until it hurts" (see Karma, Reincarnation & Religion, and also the Law Of Manifestation). This is because we are all connected in the web of life. Our actions affect others... sometimes to a degree that would blow our minds! At any given time there are countless opportunities presented to us by the universe. Our entire lives are really a series of choices, each one leading onto the next.
Up until recently, most people thought that everybody existed independently of everybody else in a solid material world. That is simply not true! Law Of Manifestation, 'Like attracts Like,' means that things with similar vibrational frequencies are attracted to one another. This is how matter is formed. When we take that knowledge on board, we can understand that all sorts of miraculous things can occur.
When we understand that the entire universe is simply collections of molecules vibrating at different frequencies and vibrational levels, and that matter is NOT solid, it makes the concept of being able to create our realities much more understandable.
Thoughts have substance. They exist in the sub-nuclear reality, and so our thoughts have HUGE power! See The Law Of Manifestation which elaborates more on this subject. There is also an interesting article regarding an experimentation on prayer and thought power - Science of Peace & The Power Of Prayer.
How Negative Thinking Affects Us
If we think negatively... this is a low form of vibration. It will in turn attracts other things on a similar level of vibration and so before we know it we have become seeming 'victims of fate'. What we put out we get back and so we create a depressing reality for ourselves and so the vicious cycle continues.
Even if we are not in the habit of thinking negatively, we can still fall into that way of thinking on occasion.
As a teenager I saw this again and again (results/manifestation of negative thinking) until the Truth dawned on me. If I was looking forward to a special 'date' with some likely lad I would say to myself "What if he does not turn up?" Sure as anything I was 'stood up' more times than I had hot dinners simply because that was the energetic thought pattern I was putting out to the universe.
We really do need to 'wake up' and take every negative thought captive. The knowledge of Quantum Reality should transform all our thinking in the most major way imaginable.
From Microcosm to Macrocosm...
Think of not just individual thought energy ... take it globally...
Like attracts like ... our thoughts have power. We can literally create Heaven on Earth if enough people share the same thoughts of unity, peace and the highest vibrational energy in the Universe LOVE! (Remember the words to John Lennon's song - Imagine!!!)
However, just as we have to love ourselves before we can truly love others, so it is with everything. Change ourselves then change the world. All healing begins with us as individuals.
What are we waiting for? We owe it to our children. Let's all think our world into a better place.
