Manifesting Your Dreams

Some people say we need to truly believe we already have what we desire in order for it to manifest in our reality. Well, what if we are constantly slipping into other universes and realities? What if each day we see ourselves waking up in the reality that holds our most cherished desires? Each day we would be slipping closer and closer to our goals. If we can perceive life this way, maybe then we can create the belief we’ve been lacking and manifest things quicker. Might be worth a try!

Conformity – Reject It

There’s so much about this Universe we don’t understand. Look inside yourself. Find out what you stand for…what matters most to you. Do right by the individuals you encounter but don’t conform to anything you don’t believe in…governments, religions, societies, businesses, etc. Even if you find yourself on a path alone, at least you know it’s true. 

Three Thoughts

Yesterday was a hard day. I went to bed feeling defeated but had the following thoughts just before I fell asleep.

Thought 1: If we are biological computers, from where do we download our information? History, perhaps? But how do we create new history? Where did we get our instincts? We must be downloading from somewhere. Are we all a creation of some greater program?

Thought 2: It’s mind blowing to perceived the infinite. Maybe we are just a bubble in an infinite number of multiverses.

Thought 3: If we combine Thoughts 1 & 2, doesn’t it stand to reason that we can tell the “programmer” that we want to experience something different in the Universe we perceive?

As “out there” as these thoughts may be, when I awoke this morning I realized that the sun rose again and offered countless possibilities. Make it a great day!

A Pivotal Moment 

Even though I try to be confident, I found myself a the bottom today. I simply don’t know what plan I have for my future…I don’t know which way to go. Even though I’m a bit lost, I do know that the greatest clarity comes at times like these. So now I wait, partially afraid, yet faithful. 

Acceptance

When I first started on this journey “inward” I was pretty typical. Constantly reacting to my outside influences and situations. The pivotal moment in my life came when I took a trip to my ex’s dad’s house. They lived a unique lifestyle…very in the moment, very free. 

There I was, in my late twenties never having experienced truly being accepted. I was always living up to someone else’s standards and ideas of what was right. During the week I spent in their home I felt truly accepted…even when we differed in opinion on various topics. From that time on, I began to accept myself as I was. I accepted my alternative ideas, my explorative thoughts, my seemingly unpopular views on social stigmas, you name it. That was the key – acceptance. Once I started accepting myself, it mattered less and less what others thought. My peers expected me to be like them…which I basically saw as “judgmental.” I knew that I was a good person, although some would question my new journey…labeling it as “weird.”

Even now, I find great pleasure in accepting myself and others for who they are. Not saying I like everything I see in others, but I no longer wish to change anyone…I simply accept them and if they don’t fit into my life, I move on. There’s a peace in that. 

Love yourself, accept others as they are. Don’t waste your time with judgement, for there is no such thing. This life is truly about your perceptions…mostly about yourself. 

The Higher Self

Last night I had an amazing experience…I actually “heard” my feelings. Not in the sense of audible words in my ears, it was something much deeper, and much harder to explain. You’ve heard to listen to your feelings, but have you ever actually heard them? Heard them without all the interference of your consciousness? The reality is, we try to process the information were receiving with our consciousness when we should be simply listening to the voice of our feelings.

When this happened, I realized that although I understand some things consciously…that conscious understanding does not mean I have truly listened to the voice within me. I have struggled so hard to consciously understand what life is, and what I am meant to do with mine. I have been seeking to make sense of it all so I can believe in the manifesting powers of The Universe, to trust, and have faith in my successes in this incarnation. Well, last night I discovered that I truly cannot understand if I do not listen with the right ears. Now I recognize my conscious mind as not my enemy, but a safety mechanism for this human form. My conscious and subconscious must now have the opportunity to work as one. My consciousness is part of my physical world, but my subconscious is part of my connection to something much greater. I must now move forward as trusting my higher self…for I don’t know that I ever truly believed, until now, the power of my subconscious. We have become so reactive in this physical form that we have forgotten our direct connection to God…or whatever you want to call it. Wise men have tried to tell us, but it has been lost in translation because our conscious mind has filtered too much.

How to Connect with Your Higher Self

Honestly, I have tried many times to connect with my higher self in order to gain some insight, some understanding. After my experience last night, the only way I can suggest you connect with and hear your inner-self is to “zone out.” Just zone out…almost like a mini-meditation. We do it hundreds of times a day. Only this time, be conscious enough to experience your feelings from a different place. Your mind will wander, just don’t focus in on one thought in-particular. Just let them flow and sense the emotion the best you can. It really is that simple, but I also understand that this is no easy task.

Please take my word on the fact that this is the truth, at least for me. I have been on this journey for a long time, tripping over myself. I am not a flaky person, I have always prided myself on being cemented in reality…it’s only now that I realize that what I thought was a virtue, was actually a hindrance.

A Wish That Didn’t Come True

Life is truly a funny thing. Some moments I have such clarity, others not so much. Just a few minutes ago I spoke a small prayer that something great was going to come into my life and at that exact moment I received a rejection letter from Kindle Singles for the short story I published. Having been rejected so many times in my life, I wasn’t devastated, but I did find myself saying, “Really? That’s the way this went?” But my next breath was full of certainty, this just wasn’t the great thing that was meant to happen. I counted up all the blessings I had in this one day – coupons that paid for the majority of my purchases, discounts that paid for most of my lunch, and I won $2 on scratch tickets – even though I spent $9. I looked at all I had received in such a short time and counted those as blessings as opposed to “not enough.”

The Moral of the Story

There are even greater things on the horizon, so please don’t give up hope, just keep pressing forward knowing that your greatest thought will be realized at exactly the right time.

Relationships

I got to thinking about relationships, why some succeed and why some fail. I realized that it has nothing to do with the other person…and has everything to do with you. 

The real reason in all situations of success and failure lies with one question – Do you like the “you” who showed up? It’s easy to place the blame on others’ actions, or inactions. But the reality is do you like the person you are when you are with them…do you like the person you’ve become? 

People should complement our lives, not complicate them. If they don’t, respect and love the experience, but have the courage to move on. There’s more waiting for you.
