The Abundance Book

Abundance Book by John Randolph PriceHave you seen The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price? It’s a thin little book, only 79 pages, full of great information and ideas to help you build your wealth consciousness.

The core of the book is the 40-Day Prosperity Plan. There are 10 principles to meditate on, one a day for 10 days, then revisit each again three times for a total of 40 days.

I make the Abundance Book a part of my gratitude journal practice every night. For the 40 days I read the principle for the day, wrote it in my journal, then allowed myself to get into the feeling of the principle. Now that I have completed the first 40 days, I still study a principle every night. I just don’t write it down anymore.

Keeping A Gratitude Journal

Gratitude is the open doorI’ve been writing recently about the things that I am doing to get back into the space of consciously manifesting my experiences. One of those things is writing in my gratitude journal every night before falling asleep.

There are many reasons why writing in a gratitude journal, especially just before falling asleep, makes good sense.

Gratitude, whether written, spoken, or just thought, puts you into a positive vibration. It is impossible to be in a bad mood while feeling gratitude. Everything I have read, studied and experienced says that you attract your dominant vibration, so the more you feel grateful, the more things and experiences you will attract to be grateful for. If you feel your mood slipping during the day then take a moment and think of a couple of things to be grateful for.

Assisted Meditation

Headphone MeditationIn my last post I shared with you about how I realized I got way off track from consciously manifesting what I want to experience and what I have started to do to get back in line. In addition to the Abraham exercise and vision board that I talked about last time, I have also started using an assisted meditation program that I have used on and off for the past several years called Holosync.

Holosync was created by Centerpointe Research Institute, Inc., which was founded by Bill Harris, who was one of the teachers in the movie The Secret. In the movie he talks about a client who was being harassed by co-workers and  struggling to be successful. With some coaching and mental reprogramming he was finally able to change his experience and achieve his success. If you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend it.

How I’m Doing Personal Development

Manifestation ExerciseOver the past year and a half I have allowed myself to get off track, way off track actually, with what I want to manifest in my experience. I woke up again about a month and a half ago, realized what I had allowed to happen, and began rearranging what I was doing.

The first thing that my wife and I started to do was an exercise that we read about several years ago in Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks. In this exercise you create an imaginary checking account. On the first day you deposit $1,000 into the account and you have “spend” all of that money by the end of the day. Then on the second day you deposit $2,000 and have to spend all, or most, of it.

Does Visualization Really Work?

There are many manifestation techniques in the personal development world to help you create the life you want. Visualization and affirmations are both very popular choices.

I don’t think the technique or tool itself really matters much. The important thing is to be in the energy of having already created what it is that you want to manifest. Affirmations are enough for some people while other people need images. If you can get into that space by visualizing what it is like to have it right now, then that’s great. If you want to cut out pictures and paste them on a vision board, then do that. Just make sure that you are in that space of already having it right now, not sometime in the future.

Love vs Conflict

Conflict and the emotions that conflict causes are probably the biggest things that keep us from living bigger lives and advancing to the next level as a society. Conflict keeps us so busy battling each other that we don’t have the time or energy to work on making ourselves better.

With this being an election year, the biggest conflict we see on a daily basis is Obama vs. Romney or Democrat vs. Republican. There are a lot of people who invest a lot of their energy into this conflict and you can see it all over Facebook. It’s absolutely insane.

We’re also in college football season and that provides another great example – sports rivalries. I went to school at Georgia Tech where your favorite teams are expected to be Georgia Tech (of course) and whoever is playing against the University of Georgia. Some people invest so much of their energy into these sports rivalries. I think we would be amazed at what could happen if they reinvested half of that energy on improving their lives instead.

I don’t think competition is a bad thing because it can be a very good thing if used properly.  Doing your best and encouraging your teammates to do their best are things that improve everyone. The competition has to end with the game though.

I was a NASCAR fan and I think the 1998 Daytona 500 is a perfect example of how a contest should end. Through out the race every driver is doing their best to win the race and Dale Earnhardt won. When he drove his car onto the pit road the crews from many of the other teams were lined up to congratulate him on his way to the victory circle. I’d never seen that happen before and it was amazing.

There are many other forms of conflict that affect us every day, like man vs woman, Christian vs Muslim vs Hindu vs Wiccan vs …  Have any of these conflicts ever improved any lives? I mean other than those who know how to capitalize on them to make a dollar? I don’t think so.

Instead of conflict and all of the emotions attached to conflict, feel love and respect. You will feel better and so will everyone else. You can test it right now. Think of a conflict that you participate in – the upcoming election, a college rivalry, whatever. Bring up the emotions that you feel when something goes against your team or for the other team. You can feel the negative energy. Now let that go and replace it with love or respect, like for a well-executed play. Now you can feel the positive energy of a good emotion. You will probably notice that this feels a lot better than the feelings of conflict.

Work on doing that every day, replacing conflict with love and respect. It won’t be long before it becomes a habit and you will generally feel a lot more positive than you do now.

Don’t Waste Your Time On How Your Desires Will Manifest

Master Key System BookI’m re-reading the Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel and found this quote in part 3.

It is well to remember that it is not necessary to outline the method by which the subconscious will produce the results you desire. The finite cannot inform the Infinite. You are simply to say what you desire, not how you are to obtain it.

When I decide to create something new in my life through the Law of Attraction I need only to focus on what I want, not on how I’m going to get it. If I decide on exactly how I’m going to get want I want I will immediately cut off every other way that it could possibly appear.

In his Notes From the Universe, Mike Dooley often says that we should not worry about the “cursed hows”.

The tendency to settle upon a cursed how as a means to achieve a particular goal, is simply a sign that you’ve momentarily forgotten how unlimited, creative, and powerful I am, and that I tirelessly conspire on your behalf when you leave me every option.
Let me loose,
The Universe

By focusing on how something is to manifest limits the magic that the Universe or God can create in your life. By simply focusing on what it is that you want, the Universe or God can bring it to you more quickly and more magnificently than you could possibly imagine on your own.

Here’s another way to look at it. Through personal development with the Law of Attraction you are working to remove the limitations that you have created in your life. By focusing on how something will manifest in your life creates all sorts of limitation.

That doesn’t mean that you should just sit on your couch, imagine how you want your life to appear, then do nothing. Let’s say that I want to attract a new car. As someone said in The Secret, the Universe likes action. If you are a religious person you can say “God helps those who help themselves.” So I’m going to get started with what I know and look for ways to increase my income through my business.

I’m also going to keep myself open to other things that may show up. Maybe a local car dealership is running contest. Maybe a relative will have a reason to give me the car. Maybe my current car will get totaled in the mall parking lot and the insurance money will get me the new car. It will probably come in some way that I can’t think of.

What Is Your Mindset?

The word of the day on Minute With Maxwell yesterday was mindset. As he explained it, your mindset is what you set your mind to.

What have you set your mind on?

I don’t think most people realize how powerful their mindset is, or what they really put their mind on all day. If they did I bet they’d change it in a heartbeat.

The current presidential politics season here in the US is a great example. I watch the posts from the people I follow on Facebook. Most of what I see are the people on one side saying how bad Romney is and on the other side saying how bad Obama is. Nobody is talking about how great their preferred candidate is. Their minds are all set on how bad the other guy is.

I have worked on improving my awareness of what I’m thinking and how it affects my experience. If I see my business slow down a little and become fixated on it, it stays slow. As soon as I can get myself to let go of the idea that things are slow it picks right back up.

Likewise, when I focus on the things that are going right, my mindset is on the positive stuff, things just keep getting better. My business through July has been a perfect example of this.

Practice staying aware of what you are thinking. When you catch yourself being or thinking negative, look for something positive to put your mind on. See how different things can be for you.

What Is A Fact?

We all care about and want to know the facts right? What is a fact?

I was listening to a recording of Dr. Richard Bartlett of Matrix Energetics and he said that the word “fact” comes from the Latin word “factum”, which means “made up”. I don’t know if that is true, but it did get me thinking about what we call facts.

In science, a fact is something that has been proven to be true. As we all know, science is disproving old facts and proving new facts all the time. So, at least from the perspective of science, a fact is just something that we believe to be true right now.

I am learning that what the law considers a fact doesn’t have to be true either. A legal fact is just a statement or belief that has not been disputed. Crazy.

Getting more metaphysical, what is true, or fact, for me may not be true for you or anyone else. For some, it has long been a fact that “money is the root of all evil” or that “the love of money is the root of all evil.” Is that true?

They are just ideas that somebody made up and convinced a bunch of people that they are true. They have a morphic field if you like.

A fact is just a very strong belief. If you want to play with a very powerful exercise, begin to question everything that you consider to be a fact.

For example, take the “fact” that grass is green. Is it? Sometimes it is brown, but let’s go deeper. Get into the physics of “grass is green.” The grass only appears to be green because it reflects the green part of the visible light spectrum that strikes it. Further, we only call it green because that is what we have labeled that frequency of light. We could have just as easily labeled it “pear” or “box”.

The point is, question everything that you believe to be true, especially the facts, and decide what is actually true for you. Better yet, decide what you would like to be true for you.

Can You Grow By Asking Yourself Questions?

Ask Yourself QuestionsAsking yourself questions may be the most important thing that you can do to expand your consciousness.

One thing that I have read is that when you ask a question of your subconscious mind, it has to find an answer. So, ask yourself positive questions, especially questions that imply that you are already having some success.

“How can I make even more money than I’m already making?”

I already wrote a little about this in a previous post.

After I wrote that post, I learned about Access Consciousness, Rikka Zimmerman, and Dr. Dain Heer.

One question that they suggest is: “How can it get any better than this?”

What an amazing question. It implies that things are good now and ask how they can get better. It is completely open ended about how good things could get.

You can ask yourself that when things are bad and it will help you feel better. With the implication that things are already OK, your subconscious is going to let you feel a little better, a little lighter, which will put you into a vibration to attract something a little better.

You can also ask yourself that question when things are already good and your subconscious will go look for ways that things actually could get better. How cool is that?

The trick with questions like this is to not cap them. Dr. Dain Heer tells a story about sharing the question with a couple. They kept asking themselves the question, “how can it get better than this?”, and things kept getting better. Then finally they capped it by saying “Wow! It can’t get any better than this”, and that ends it. They just told their subconscious mind that it could not get better.

Never put a cap on how good things can get for you.

I am digging deeper into Access Consciousness. Asking myself these questions has been amazingly powerful and I feel like I have made some pretty big shifts in the past few weeks. I recommend that you check it out for yourself. There are some free resources on the Access Consciousness website and on Rikka Zimmerman’s website. Rikka is one of the people trained to lead Access Consciousness sessions.

What is Mindfulness?

Colette Baron Reid Enchanted MapIn my last post on intention I told you about an oracle deck that my wife is studying. I drew the Wizard of Awareness card today. This card is about mindfulness and the description reminds me of some other teachings I have read.

To be mindful means to be an observer. Nothing is either good or bad. Everything just is.

The problems that we see depend on how we interpret our experiences. They are in the labels that we attach to them, “good” and “bad”.

When we can step outside of the labels and take everything exactly as it is, then we have the power to change our experience of the event.

Actually doing this, especially with everything going on in the world right now, can be a big challenge.

Maybe you’ve lost your job. That’s bad, right? Is it really? What if you hated the job and the stress was killing you. Maybe you’ve been wanting to start something new, and this is the nudge that you have been waiting for.

The Wizard of Awareness is telling us to stop and take a look at our circumstances as an outside observer would. We can gain some very useful insight from this perspective.

The oracle deck my wife is studying is The Enchanted Map oracle deck by Colette Baron-Reid.

Colette Baron Reid Enchanted Map Oracle CardMy wife is in an online group studying the oracle cards for Colette Baron-Reid’s The Enchanted Map. I drew the Intention card today and thought I’d share about it.

Some people are closed minded when you talk about oracle cards or tarot cards and say that they are satanic or some such nonsense. That just isn’t true.

In my mind, pulling a random card from the deck is no different than receiving a daily inspirational message like Mike Dooley’s Notes From the Universe or Bob Proctor’s Insight of the Day. They give you a pointer to an area in your life that you could take a look at and see what’s going on.

Like I said, I drew the Intention card today.

The guidebook has a paragraph about what they say that the card means. There is one great reminder offered by the description.

Recognize that you’re not the one who has to do all the work, however; others help you co-create reality.

That’s very much in alignment with something that a friend of mine said to me recently. When you have a small core group of people working together, you have the opportunity to create something bigger and better than what any of us can do alone.

The point of the card is to suggest that I take a look at where I am putting my intention. There are some amazing things that I am working on right now, and it is very exciting. I need to make sure that my intention remains fixed on the higher good for everyone involved.

What is your intention for today, this week, or this month? Is it for your higher good, and for the higher good of everyone involved? If so, then you are working from a place of power.

What is Access Consciousness?

Access Consciousness FacilitatorI mentioned Access Consciousness in my previous post on morphic fields and personal development techniques. What is Access Consciousness?

Access Consciousness is a technique for clearing out the mental garbage that holds us back from the things that we want to create in our lives. It was founded by Gary Douglas over 20 years ago.

I learned about Access Consciousness from listening to Rikka Zimmerman on several telesummit series that I have been listening to recently. She would ask questions and then use this clearing statement to release the energy. It sounded pretty crazy but I could feel my energy shifting, so I checked it out.

What I like about it is that it is easy. You don’t have to know specific points or come up with clever statements to do it. Here is how Rikka Zimmerman explained how to use it.

First thing you need to know is that a lie will make you feel heavy, it will weigh on you and not feel good. The truth will make you feel lighter. Easy so far, right?

Now pay attention to every thought, feeling, and emotion that you have for the next three days. When something comes up, ask yourself “Who does that belong to?” If you feel lighter after asking the question, then it wasn’t yours and you can let it go (if you want to). If you feel heavier, then it was yours and you can clear it.

It turns out that we are all psychic. Pretty cool, right? We are constantly picking up thoughts and feelings from other people. We just don’t know that they are from other people. They are in our heads, so they must be ours, and we make them ours. Maybe that chocolate chip cookie you’re craving right now isn’t really you craving a chocolate chip cookie, but someone else craving it.

If the thought or emotion was yours, then you can clear it with the clearing statement, unless it was a thought that you wanted, then by all means keep it.

The clearing statement in Access Consciousness goes like this:

Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, POD and POC, All 9, Shorts, Boys and Beyonds

I’ve heard Rikka Zimmerman explain what it all means, but all I can remember is that POD = Point of Destruction and POC = Point of Creation. You don’t have to understand it to use it, just like you don’t have to know how gravity works to keep your feet on the ground.

OK, so you have determined that the thought or emotion is yours and you want to clear it. Feel the emotion that the limiting thought brings up then ask yourself if you are willing to un-create it and destroy it. If you are, say “yes” and read the clearing statement.

Hopefully you feel yourself get a little lighter. Sometimes I’m really bought into a limiting thought and I have to use the clearing statement on it twice to get rid of it all, so play with it and see how it works for you.

There are a few ways to learn more about Access Consciousness. You can go to the main Access Consciousness website or visit Rikka Zimmerman’s website. Rikka will also be on the Self Worth Summit teleseminar series in a couple weeks on July 3.

Why Do Personal Development Techniques Work?

Why do some personal development techniques work from some people and not for other?

I believe that it comes down to belief. Do you believe that they can work for you?

If you are open to allowing the technique to work, then you can tap into the morphic field of that technique and have very powerful results.

What is a Morphic Field?

Morphic FieldsThe idea of a “morphic field” was created by Rupert Sheldrake. For our purposes, a morphic field is an idea that a group of people have bought into. For example, the idea that western medicine heals is a very powerful morphic field because hundreds of thousands of people believe in it. When you have a critical injury, this is a great morphic field to tap into.

I learned of the morphic field concept in Matrix Energetics with Dr. Richard Bartlett. In Matrix Energetics, he teaches that you can tap into the morphic field of any other technique and draw on that power and the corresponding benefits.

Access Consciousness is a technique that I’m learning about right now. With this technique there is a clearing statement, and I think the morphic field concept helps to explain a lot about why this works. The clearing statement goes like this.

Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, POD and POC, All 9, Shorts, Boys and Beyonds

What the heck does that even mean, let alone how or why does it work? It is a much shortened form of a bunch of other things and a practitioner can explain what all of it means.

I don’t think it matters what it means.

The Access Consciousness clearing statement has been used with success by many people over the course of many years. There is a powerful morphic field built up around that statement. When you use your belief to tap into that morphic field, you have access to all of the good that can be done with that clearing statement.

You can release all of your limiting emotional and mental garbage that easily, even though you really have no idea what you, or the practitioner, said.

It can be that easy if you let it.

If you are curious, you can learn more about Access Consciousness at their main website and through Rikka Zimmerman, an Access Consciousness facilitator.

The Dark Side of the Law of Attraction

Come to the Dark Side We Have CookiesI wrote a post two years ago about the dark side of the Law of Attraction as it relates to health care. Now I have decided to write about the dark side as it relates to personal development.

Like the Force in Star Wars, the Law of Attraction has a dark side. If you have watched The Secret or studies the Law of Attraction somewhere else, you know that what your dominant thoughts are is what you attract. There is more to it, but that is the basic idea.

The issue for most people is that they spend most of their time thinking about the things they don’t want, and most of the time aren’t even aware of it. This is what I mean by the “dark side” of the Law of Attraction.

You watch the balance in your checking account dwindle as you pay your bills and think you will never be wealthy. You see the number on the scale creeping up when you weigh yourself and tell yourself that you will never lose those 20 pounds. You get cut off on your way to work and think that you are surrounded by idiots and that you’re always late.

These constant thoughts cannot be overcome by positive thinking for five minutes and gazing at your vision board.

You Can Be Saved From the Dark Side

As Luke Skywalker showed with Darth Vader, you can be saved from the Dark Side.

Try to be more conscious of your thoughts that come through your mind. That’s harder than it sounds. Most of us run on autopilot, so we will have to shut that off and be more mindful.

There is an exercise that comes from Access Consciousness. When a thought comes to your mind, especially one that isn’t uplifting, ask yourself who that thought came from. Chances are it wasn’t even yours and it will disappear. Rikka Zimmerman, a facilitator of Access Consciousness says to do this for every thought that comes to your mind for three days. After that, you will probably be much more in control of the thoughts that you have, and can make them more positive.

Do you have other techniques that you like to use to stay conscious of your thoughts? Share them in a comment below.
