The Universal Law of Attraction is a fairly simple concept. What you send out into the Universe creates the world that surrounds you. If you think and act positively, positive experiences will ripple through your life. Be kind and you will see kindness. LOVE outwardly without condition and you will attract others into your life that LOVE with this same conviction. Although the Law may be simple to understand taking conscious action and making the effort to express these ideals outwardly can be challenging. How does one find ways to be positive, kind, loving and act on it? I’d like to share one idea with you..
Releasing expectations. A perfect topic as many celebrate Valentine’s day. On our journey of personal and spiritual growth it is essential to release expectations in two important areas. First are our expectations of others. Second is our need either consciously or subconsciously to meet other’s expectations. In today’s culture expectations have become too deeply rooted in our feelings of self worth and esteem. That looking outwardly rather than inwardly fulfills these needs. This perpetuates cycles of negativity passed down through the generations..
The greatest LOVE affair someone can ever have is with his or her SELF. Complete faith and trust in the divine and the unconditional love and acceptance of YOU and who YOU are. By the Universal Law of Attraction positivity, prosperity and the fulfillment of our heart’s desires can only manifest through LOVE. The blessings that are allowed to enter our lives increase the more we LOVE and we can only LOVE outwardly as much as we LOVE inwardly. Thinking that it is possible to love others more than we love ourselves is false. The idea that it’s OK to do good things for others regardless of our own well-being is an ego trap. The reality is we are actually telling ourselves that we are not worth being LOVED with the same passion as the rest of the world creating a barrier to prosperity..
We have come through another year and today is the day when many of us embark on a new path; enacting a series of pre thought-out changes equated to living a more positive life. The very nature of our existence is examined. Bullet points of shortcomings are made like a grocery list and we commit to betterment in those areas. While the intent behind a new year’s resolution is positive they tend to be short lived. In most cases creating limitations and almost never addressing change in the areas responsible for the quality of our lives: the Heart and the Soul. This year I want you ALL to completely throw out the very idea of resolutions and have a New Year’s Revolution..
LOVE. KINDNESS. This is an essential way of life for the spiritually inclined. As the journey of spiritual and personal growth moves forward these two important principles are incorporated into all aspects of our lives. Family, friends, co-workers and strangers all become part of the whole of life on this Earth; we approach every person and situation from the heart with LOVE and KINDNESS. However, an often overlooked and integral element of this new perspective is treating our SELF with LOVE and KINDNESS in the same fashion..
Through my spiritual practices and Lightwork I have crossed paths with some truly amazing individuals. Many of us have found each other online through myriad social media outlets and live thousands of miles apart. Distance is only an illusion of perception. Love always finds Love, traversing the deepest expanses of the universe. We may span across vast distances but we all reside in the same spiritual location, in the heart of the Divine.
I met an absolutely beautiful soul recently through Instagram. When Maria Terese and I connected I was blown away with the incredible Lightwork she was doing in Bali and around the world. I felt compelled to share her story of light and love with you. It is my honor to release ACTS – Chapter 2: I AM Maria Terese.
The most important thing to remember is meditation is simply taking time to connect with yourself and the divine. There is no wrong way to meditate. One mistake a lot of people make, especially when being guided by someone else, is assuming that in order to succeed in the meditation they need to have visualized the exact same things. Let your mind take you wherever it takes you. This is YOUR time. By taking time out of your day to try, you have already succeeded. I am sharing my experiences and images to show you where my mind takes me. Use them as a reference point but make it your own!
I thought I’d start you off with one of the first meditations I created for myself. I call it the The Divine Spark – Personal Energy Build. Enjoy!
We have all had days where we planned diligently for a desired outcome and things do not go as we hoped or expected. Goals were set. We visualized the conception and follow-through to completion; meticulously planning every step. Then something strange happens. It all seems to fall apart. And, with all that preparation there was no earthly reason for this to occur. But that’s just it; seems to fall apart for no earthy reason is a perfect way to put it. As we become more spiritual beings our perspective transforms and we begin living as part of a divine, universal vision. Each moment is actualized with an awareness of the bigger picture. Our Creator made the blueprints our job is to execute the divine plan..
Living a spiritually driven life is an ongoing course of development and personal growth. Walking the path of progress requires learning better, more positive ways of being. Ways that allow us to LOVE the self and others unconditionally. Ways that open us up to purpose and fulfillment. To accomplish this feat we must release everything that no longer serves us in a positive way. A spiritual emancipation liberating us from fears, worries, concerns, anxieties, self-doubts, stresses, and negativities. Many will be found just under the surface and discarded with ease. But, as we go within, releasing that which has rooted itself deep in our subconscious (abuses, abandonment etc.) the process becomes more difficult and requires patience, courage and determination. A good friend gave me the perfect metaphor for this experience, which I now refer to as: Wringing Out The Towel..
Today’s society has become lost in the idea that our personal self worth is gauged by how other people view us. We’ve grown accustomed to this belief that the more people like us and agree with our ideas, the more worth we have. Alternatively many think that anyone who dislikes us, treats us poorly, or disagrees with us diminishes our worth. This falsehood has perpetuated cycles of negativity and abuse for hundreds of years.
Awareness is one of the most important things for us to understand as individuals and the collective become more spiritual beings. I once heard this great metaphor: Each person is defined by the fight that rages between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind and the only way to win is to deny it battle. Bringing about full awareness of yourself, your truths, your struggles and your feelings helps accomplishes this task..
