3 Types of Actions to Manifest Your Dreams

Taking action is still critical when you are using the power of imagination and the Law of Attraction. Here are 3 ways to approach your To Do List so that you do not get mixed up in trying to force things to happen. Remember, the Law of Attraction is about Asking and Receiving. The delivery is what happens in between, and getting involved in that part slows you down.

1. Orderly Actions – Use your normal To Do List to consider what actions would logically give you the results you seek. Write it down in today’s diary and carry it out. Create a business plan; write a list of possible jobs or business ideas and write out actions to take, then follow the plan without attachment. Some of these may lead you to your next step and some may be dead ends. Don’t worry about it! Just get busy and follow each logical action to its conclusion.

2. Intuitive Actions – Your gut instinct or your heart will tell you ideas to try. Usually these types of actions come ‘out of the blue’ and it is best to just DO it then, as you get the idea. If you have a thought to call someone, do it within a few minutes of the suggested thought and see where it takes you. Each action can lead you closer to your desired results. Especially, pay attention to coincidences. These are leading you somewhere, so act when you see a series of seemingly unconnected but similar events.

3. Assumptive Actions – Getting your beliefs aligned with receiving means taking actions as if you are about to have it happen. Waiting for it to arrive first shows a level of disbelief, and sometimes just writing a list of assumptive actions can shift your energy to receive quickly. For instance, sell your furniture to make room for the new ones; buy another pillow and sleep on one side of the bed for a new relationship; pack your bags for the European holiday and clear your diary for the dates. Miracles have happened out of these kinds of actions because the expectations grow when we take that next step.

This is exactly how I received my beautiful 2007 Prius Hybrid. We were busy working out which car, visiting dealerships and exploring financing options. Then we made a chance call to the dealer who sold us our old cars and found out he could get any car we wanted at auctions. Weeks later we were still waiting even though everything else had been arranged. We thought we were ready to receive, but week after week the desired car was not showing up at the available auctions. Then I wrote a list of assumptive actions, like selling one of our old cars, clearing out the garage space and arranging insurance. I didn’t do all of these, but I chose to call the insurance company for a quote and they needed the make, model, year and cost. Even though I had no true idea, I told them what I expected. Within two days that car, that year and THAT COST (to the dollar) showed up at the next auction. We love our car and it showed me the power of using all three of these types of actions.

Secrets of Success – Achieve Your Dreams

Learning how to create the success that you desire in any area of your life can seem like a daunting task at times. There are always going to be those days when it just seems like things aren’t going your way or you feel as though you will not be able to achieve the dreams that you do have. In these moments, it is necessary to take a step back and re-frame the situation or else you risk the chance of getting knocked off track.

Look, success doesn’t always come easily. And as many people who have created a very successful life know, the best accomplishments are worth the efforts that it takes. There are many ways that you can make yourself more efficient and also to give yourself the focus that you need, but perspective can be the best medicine as well.

You see, we live in a society where we are used to instant gratification. And we are used to being hit with advertisements for products that make miracle claims and overnight cures and so we can easily expect the same with anything else that we pursue. The truth is, that most successful people spent years cultivating their talents and paying the price to achieve their dreams. This is one of those secrets of success that few people realize. We see the end result, but not the hard work that went into it.

Is it worth it in the end?

Only you can be the judge of that. But if you have a white hot desire for the your dreams to become your reality, then it will be. And patience is also something that we must possess in order to really manifest the things that we want. To achieve your dreams, you have to be committed and you have to have patience all at the same time.

The Immense Power of Gratitude in Conscious Manifestation

“Gratefulness is heaven itself.” William Blake

An “attitude of gratitude” is recommended by all the teachers of the Law of Attraction. Why is it so important? For one, gratitude can put you in the vibration of your desires fulfilled. Gratitude brings completion to cycles; when you are grateful ‘in advance’, you are feeling and responding to the completed manifestation cycle at a level of knowing. In other words, you are energetically in the fulfillment of your desired manifestations. The subconscious mind makes no distinction between what is real and what is imagined–its conviction comes from your emotional energy, based on intensity and frequency of those emotional states. With an attitude of gratitude, you repeatedly energize the emotional states of your manifested desires, and your subconscious mind will get working on matching your outer reality with your inner state of being. If you are trying to magnetize abundance, for example, then being grateful for all your abundant blessings puts you in the fulfilment energies of abundance, which is the perfect attractor energy for increased abundance.

But gratitude works in many varied ways. For example, being grateful for what is, including all your areas of lack or dysfunction, empowers you as an attractor force further. But how can you be grateful for your lack and dysfunction? And won’t that attract more lack or dysfunction? No it won’t–not if you’re grateful for what the lack is revealing to you. If you can feel grateful for the lack because it helps you to appreciate the sense of abundance, which is what you desire more of, then you’ve managed to be grateful for the full spectrum of experience. Without the lack, you likely would not be able to consciously appreciate and therefore choose abundance. From that state of acceptance, your choice for abundance will be met with far greater ease than it would if you were still energetically resisting lack. What we resist persists. What we resist, we create an internal polarity to, which fixes it in place. So gratitude for all experience is a very powerful means to dissolve the inner polarity and allow free movement, by choice, on the full spectrum of experience (in this case, the desired movement would be towards the abundance-end of the spectrum).

Dave Cameron explains, “…gratitude completes the cycle of knowing… What you like and what you hate are two ends of the same thing. For example, if you like being with your spouse and hate being separated from them, realize that you are working within the same essence, which is your spouse. It is because of the moments of absence that you appreciate and recognize the moments of presence. When you are grateful for both what you like and what you don’t like, you complete the knowingness and you are released from having to experience what you don’t like. …Some very significant shifts occur in your mind and soul whenever you are genuinely grateful for all things, even the ones you don’t like. Gratitude will speed you through your growth and success more than any amount of hard work ever can. Gratitude completes the lesson, and as a statement of completion rings that tone of success, pulling to you the end result desired.” 1

When you can be grateful for the things you don’t like, you speed up the learning and hence, the need for those things in your life. “You cannot leave a situation permanently unless you appreciate the gifts it brings you, and all situations bring a gift, no matter how terrible the situation may appear to be.”1 In the case of lack, the gift may be the conscious appreciation of abundance and ease, which is necessary for sustaining it in life.

Life as God’s Love in Action

Without you, your consciousness, your life would not be. All the interactions with others and what is created out of that simply would not exist. Life arises out of you, through you, and for you. It is entirely dependent upon your consciousness. It shapes and moulds itself around you in a perfect fit, like a glove over a hand. The animated, gloved hand is you in life. The glove shifts as you shift. Take your hand out, and the glove collapses and is no longer animated.

The animating principle of this thing we call life (the glove) is the love of God for each one of us–it is God in action through the formless Substance. Imagine you are an invisible hand–invisible at the level of matter. The glove is there to allow you to see yourself and others, in order to enable experience. As fine-substance consciousness (invisible hand) in an ocean of consciousness, you cannot experience yourself apart from the ocean, and so you cannot encompass larger portions of the ocean, as you have no means of distinguishing anything consciously. The glove (i.e. matter, or the earthly realm of life) is there to enable distinction, contrast, and ultimately the experience of self and the possibility of encompassing larger portions of the ocean substance that is God, consciously. The loving embrace of the universe is your life.

The universe, upholding evolution by its love-imbued laws, hugs you tightly in a glove of life, which is love in action. Where you feel the pressure are the ‘places’ that need attention. The pain you feel, is you shrinking away from life’s embrace. This pain alerts you to where you have forgotten who you are and are resisting remembering. Life hugs you tightly, always. You are moving consciousness–both awareness and life. You’re all of it, albeit, at different levels of consciousness. The god-you wishes you to remember who you are, the ‘small you’ is the vehicle through which that remembering process is focused. Resistance is what causes pain and delays learning. When you can be grateful for all experience, you release resistance and begin to yield and surrender to the process. The process (life) can then change from pain, to being benign, and then soon becoming a wondrous adventure.

When you are grateful for unwanted conditions that appear in life, you accept them with the faith that somehow they are for your highest good. Acceptance is a prerequisite to change. But also importantly, by your faith that the condition is somehow for your highest good, you become a commanding presence to ensure an outcome that is preferred (you choose either lessons or blessings) –and that outcome of blessing will occur far more quickly than if you resist and are embittered or dissatisfied with the condition. So be grateful for it all–the tight hug is for your highest good, and the pain is there so long as you resist. Engaging gratitude releases the resistance and enables you to move forward with the necessary learning, bringing completion and releasing the need for life to move in on you in that manner.

Rudolf Steiner2 explains that it is our consciousness that enables immortality; in unconsciousness, we do not know that we exist and so cannot speak meaningfully of immortality. Everything of your past has contributed to your current point of consciousness, and if you will be grateful for consciousness then you can be grateful for all of your past. When you can do this, you will successfully disengage from your past and be able to move resolutely forward with whatever new stories you wish to create for yourself.

In the Science of Getting Rich3, Wattles explains that there is one intelligent Substance from which all things proceed which gives you everything you desire. In his chapter on Gratitude, he states that the best means to relate to this intelligent Substance and be in a harmonious relationship with it is through profound gratitude. Failing to acknowledge our blessings “cuts the wires connecting” us to God. Energetically, failing to acknowledge creates imbalance, as there must always be a fair exchange of energies in all ‘transactions’. The universe will not be put off-balance.

Our soul lives in constant gratitude for all experience, and in this regard, lives closer to its source. When we emulate the soul we too shall live in close connection to the source of our abundance. Wattles explain the power of gratitude at accelerating manifestation because it “draws the mind into closer touch with the source from which the blessings come.”

Further he points out that gratitude always reaches what it addresses and there is an instantaneous reaction of a movement towards the person who is grateful. This is an experience we all can validate. Think of giving a gift to someone who is profoundly grateful to you for it. You are drawn closer to that person. Contrast this with gifting someone who does not acknowledge the gift, or worse, refuses it. You will feel antipathy towards that person, which draws you away from them. Hug somebody who stiffens or shrinks away, and then hug somebody who hugs you back warmly–which person is more inviting? This is another important aspect of the Law of Gratitude in action.

“Draw nigh unto God, and He will draw nigh unto you. That is a statement of psychological truth.”

It’s important that you ponder on the power of gratitude in all aspects discussed, and see where you can work these principles in your life. Gratitude is one of three keys of manifestation; these are:

· Imagination/Desire

· Gratitude

· Faith

Imagination and desire are needed to direct the formless Substance–this constitutes our engagement in life, whereby we become increasing consciousness by exerting choice and experiencing the effects of those choices. Desire is the level at which we work with the gift and power of free will as the means to come to know the self as love.

Gratitude releases our blocks from their locked-in positions, speeds up full learning, and gives back to the universe to maintain balance and harmony, and the universe in turn responds with the joy of greater giving. But these are its effects. The essence of gratitude is love, and the highest form of gratitude is unconditional love.

If you’re not sure what unconditional love feels like, try being grateful for all that is in your life that you tend to resist…be grateful for all those in your life who trigger you into less-than-love behaviours…be grateful for all past experiences that caused you pain…be grateful for all present conditions you’d rather not experience. Apply the principles discussed above, in which gratitude completes the spectrum of experience and thus the cycle of learning. Be grateful for the contrast and the resistance, for in letting go of the resistance, you gain conscious awareness and greater freedom to access, by will, the good end of the spectrum. In doing this, you will feel your heart expanding and will begin to glimpse unconditional love, and the state of being love in life. Furthermore, gratitude brings wholeness, which confers healing. As gratitude opens the heart–which is the province of miracles–, the effects of developing an attitude of gratitude in life are far-reaching.

“Wholeness is Holy; wholeness is healing. That is the essence of all miracles–physical, mental, financial, and social. Whatever has been torn apart comes back together into a state of wholeness. Love supports wholeness and wholeness support love. Through that common bond, love can heal anything.” 4

Many people wonder how to operate from love in life, and the answer is by way of gratitude. Gratitude is the energy that connects us to the love that we are. Gratitude is love; gratitude for everything is unconditional love. Gratitude is the surest way to merge with the source of creation and to wield its power.

“…for this is the universal law of command. Love commands the universe, the adamantine particles, the one spirit, the heart, and all of life.”4

There is no energy or healing process that is more powerful than the application of gratitude, for gratitude is love. As a force of unconditional love, gratitude will activate the hidden workings of the cause and effect of love that operate in the universe, which is expressed in life as being in the grace of God. This force is separate from the usual cause and effect of effort and operates at a higher level of Intelligence referred to as the Holy Center of existence.5 In addition, as Wattles points out, faith is born of gratitude. Faith increases the more we dwell in the love that we are. Faith brings you deeper into the fulfilment energies of what you desire, which confers complete certainty that allows you to surrender the how-to of life and flow in divine guidance and synchronicity. All three energies generate a connection to life that is teeming with vitality and passion, and with passion, you are easily spurred to take bold action when opportunities appear.

Manifestation is an interactive dance with the Creator, and at each step there must be an exchange of energies in order to remain in balance and harmony with the laws of creation. That exchange is powerfully achieved in continuous gratitude.

If you will ponder on the power of gratitude, you will certainly understand the importance of nurturing a habit of gratitude. Not only does it aligns you to attract your god-given resources and dissolves all the blocks to receiving them, but it also restores your wholeness so that you operate from greater personal power. Gratitude is the keystone of manifestation; gratitude brings you closer to the source so that you can easily imprint your desires on the formless Substance, and it begets faith, which keeps you in a vibrational match to your desires. What you do towards increasing a grateful mind will have the largest repercussions for you in manifesting your dreams.

Law Of Probability And Manifestation Success

You have no doubt in your mind that you create your experiences. The only doubt you may have is the extent to which you are in control of the creation of your own experiences. The law of probability is that the more possibilities and options you include, the lower the chances will be for a particular outcome to happen. The secret of success is focus, concentration, having a sense of certainty and clarity, and making a firm decision. Success is about narrowing down a field of possibilities in order to manifest a single choice.

If you focus on one thing and one thing only, everything unlike it disappears and only that which the focus have been placed upon manifests. The challenge for most people is that they focus on what they desire but change their mind often. The reason why you change your mind is because you doubt if the choice you have in mind is the best one, or you doubt the outcome will be what you expect it to be.

If you had seven stones of different colors each in a box, the chances of you picking a particular color is one out of seven. If you had three stones, the chances would be one out of three. If there was only one stone, the probability would be a hundred percent. No matter what the circumstances are, you will always end up with that color because that is the only one in the box. Same with life. You will always end up with the desire you want to manifest in your life if you focus only on that desire.

That being the case, what is it that keeps adding probabilities that get in the way of manifesting a particular desire? Doubts. When you start doubting and changing your mind, you are adding more probabilities into the probability pool. When you alter focus towards other possible scenarios, you are adding more probabilities into the equation which lowers your chances of success. What fuels doubts? Advertisements, media, junk television and radio, spending time with the wrong people, etc. That is why it is imperative that if you want to achieve single focus, you must feed your mind constantly with the kind of thoughts and influences that are supportive and congruent with whatever it is you intend to manifest.

You need to get clear about what you certainly want. Once you have clarity of intention, you must not change your mind until that which you want to create have manifested. You have to keep choosing the same thing so that you can stay with it long enough for it to be created. Decide and be firm in your decision. Believe only in the realization of your particular choice. Choose to focus only on your desired reality You should consider no other possibilities and options apart from the one you have chosen. The beauty of how the universe works is that you always end up receiving something far much better than what you have originally intended.

Look at your thoughts of problems. They are all memories or worries about something in future that has not even happened yet and can very well be avoided if only you stopped worrying. Fears and worries affect your reality timeline. If you want to land on your desired future timeline, you should stop worrying and focus on what you want.

Focus on where you are making money and not where you are losing it. Focus on areas where your relationship is going well and not on where it isn’t. Of course you can think of the negative things in order to be aware and make positive changes, but your focus is still on what you want and are happy about. Even if you have ninety nine things that are not going well for you but you focus only on the one thing that is going well, the rest of the things will have to change.

Ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. Let not that man think that he shall receive anything from God. Whoever speaks unto a mountain to be removed and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, he shall have what he says. Whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

A goal set with certainty is already accomplished, and because it is, all the miracles necessary for its manifestation are already set and will happen in good time as long as you do not get in the way. If you start wondering, doubting, worrying and fearing, you are getting in your own way.

There is a world of difference between “believing” and “knowing”. When you “know” the truth about anything, there is no doubt. You have one hundred percent confidence. Trust that your intentions are already a reality on the non-physical plane of consciousness, and that they must manifest in your physical reality if you do not hold any opposing thoughts. And then, act as if your intentions are reality, now.

Enoch Tan aims to help people achieve greater awareness in living and experiencing life, to evolve human consciousness to higher levels and to revolutionize the way we understand the mind and reality, because that is what governs every area of life and destiny.

How to Make Your Own Miracle? Express Simple Gratitude Attitude

The attitude of expressing simple gratitude to the Divine is an important step to make your own miracle happen, to manifest your desires faster. It is often overlooked or completely skipped by some people using the law of attraction in the creation process.

Why is an attitude of gratitude so important? When I use affirmations or visualization to manifest my desires, I always say thank you to the Divine. In fact I say it all the time as an inner chatter to everything that comes into my life even if sometimes it seems a little odd. It completely changes my energy. It moves me to the positive side. How could I be thankful and negative at the same time? It is just impossible.

This shift of energy triggers positive feelings throughout the universe. Likes attract likes. I am now in a good mood and I tend to see the sunny side of everything. The glass is always full to me; sometimes with water; sometimes with air!

Being grateful now for what I do, what I am or what I have is the only way to be really happy in the long run. Many researches have shown that 3 months after a major event, people tend to go back to the same level of happiness the used to have before. The events recorded or analysed were as good as winning the lottery and as bad as having a major accident or illness.

What I mean is that whenever I reach a goal, it fills me with joy for sometimes. But that pleasure never last for very long. The only way for long lasting happiness is to choose to be happy right now regardless of the circumstances by expressing an attitude of gratitude. The Universe responds to my positive feeling by sending me more things or situations that will fulfill my life. That is how I make miracles happen in my life. Express gratitude is my attitude for success.

Law of Attraction – Achieve Success

My guess is that you want to learn about the law of attraction so that you can achieve success and not failure with its use. After all, why else would you be pursuing a way to manifest the things that you want in your life, right? More money, better relationships, a new career path, these are all things that you can achieve and accomplish with the conscious use of the law of attraction.

However, most people seem to struggle to find any real amount of success at all. Why is that and what can you do differently?

1. Know that this is not an overnight miracle process. At times you may find that things happen rather quickly and this can be exciting, but at other times, it may take longer to manifest the things that you want. After all, just imagine trying to attract a million dollar business. That will take some time to build up that business, so you can’t really expect the law of attraction to just drop one on your lap.

2. Have fun with the law of attraction. The more fun the process is, the more likely it will be that you will stick to it. And it will help you through whatever rough patches may come up. And they will. If you can maintain your sense of fun and joy, you will see that they quickly blow over.

3. Get the proper knowledge. Nowadays, there is an abundance of information out there, some good and some bad in regards to the law of attraction. Some of it will help you to manifest your desires and some of it will keep you from actually achieving your goals.

Following these three tips is a good start to build a solid foundation.

We Can Create Magic and Miracles

The law of attraction is a very popular topic these days. More people are beginning to realize that there is a strong connection between what thoughts and feelings they have and what actually manifests in their day to day life and experiences. To my delight more people are realizing and coming to the understanding that prosperity and abundance begin in the mind first. The thoughts and what we hold in our minds do make their way into the realm of physical manifestation. This is why it is so vitally important to be aware of our thoughts. Our thoughts determine our feelings and what we ‘feel’ determines what experiences and circumstances life brings to us. Life will bring us positive situations or negative ones based on what we think and feel. It is as simple as that and can be no other way.

Most of us fluctuate like the tides upon the shores. Sometimes we drift in the positive flow and find that what we desire and need have a way of coming to us. Other times we seem to be filled with thoughts and feelings of a negative nature and so-called ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ things happen to us. Nothing really happens to us. Everything is attracted to us based on whether our thoughts and feelings be positive or negative. I know I may sound a bit redundant and repetitive here, but it is so vital that we comprehend this concept if we want to attract happiness and prosperity in our lives.

We are learning that we are not puppets to some grand being or force who dictates our lives. We are the puppet masters and we pull our own strings. What this means is that we can control our thoughts and feelings to a great degree. This might sound like very radical thinking to those who believe that we are pawns on some big cosmic chess board and we are moved wherever destiny wants us to be moved. Such people often easily fall into the ‘victim poor me’ mode and mentality when so-called bad things happen. They blame God, life, or destiny for their sad unhappy lots and these will be the first people to say something like “if it weren’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all.”

I have nothing but compassion and sympathy for such people for I have been where they are. I know what it is like to live a miserable life where frustrations and struggle and lack are the norm. I know what it is like to be broke most of the time and to barely get by. I very well remember when a lucky day would be if I could afford a taco-bell bean burrito for less than a buck and maybe I could buy two if I were really lucky. And when life was really good I could even afford a coke. I use the word ‘afford’ because I figured out if I was ever going to have anything decent I had to stop my constant use of negative expressions like, I can’t afford. I don’t have. Maybe some day. I will. I would like to go to Europe etc. They are all negative statements which guarantee that we can want to go to Europe until the cows come home and still never go. Maybe is one of the worst words we can use when it comes to attracting prosperity and abundance.

For years I constantly used such negative phrases which only reinforced my negative thoughts which reinforced my basic belief that the universe did not consider me worthy of prosperity and abundance. After doing some soul searching and much inner work, I discovered that my basic outlook on life was a combination of negative beliefs as well as some very positive ones. It almost felt as if I were two completely different people at times. At a young age I would constantly read the Bible and memorize the positive thinking verses in the New Testament. Some of my favorites were ” ask and ye shall receive,” “I have come that you have life and have life abundantly.” And the verses go on.

I was reading Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill, The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent peale, As A Man Thinketh by James Allen and How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie along with my academic studies while in college. When I was thirteen I prayed to God everyday to find me a nice foster home and a college to attend. These prayers were positive thoughts that were backed up by positive expectations. I would also give gratitude for my wishes being granted and visualize them as being granted. It never occurred to me that I would not get away from a horrible home and that I would not go to college. That was the faith that Jesus said causes the mountain to fall into the sea if we have enough faith.

Then as though a completely different person took over, I’d drift into a negative spiral and it seems that all I could do would be to dwell on what I did not have. The more I dwelled on the ‘have nots’ the more lack infiltrated my life. So yes, I have been there and still deal with the positive and negative feelings and thoughts that I have at different times. I am by no means a saint or an expert when it comes to manifesting hopes and dreams. But like anything we can achieve results with practice and I have gotten better at it with much practice.

With many magical positive experiences and many depressing negative thoughts and feelings under my belt so to speak, in time I began to realize that I could choose to have positive or negative thoughts and feelings. I found that the more emphasis I gave on the one versus the other, the more experiences I would have, be they positive or negative.

Becoming accustomed to the see saw ride of the positive and negative, I decided that I needed to tilt the see saw so that it moved more in the positive direction on a constant consistent basis. There is nothing that we cannot achieve and accomplish if we set our minds strongly on the task and goal. This includes evaluating our mind sets and beliefs and becoming willing to challenge and then dismiss and toss those beliefs which do not serve us. Old habits may not die overnight but die they do if we are determined and work diligently on cultivating new thoughts of a positive nature. These new thoughts and beliefs can become reinforced through creative visualizations and positive affirmations which we can write down, speak out loud, chant or even sing. Repetition creates momentum which stirs and moves the creative energies of the universe to direct the wind currents of positive change in our direction.

I am not engaging in theoretical hypothetical speculation here. I am expressing ancient timeless concepts of truth that stand the test of time. They are universal, impersonal and they work for anyone who believes in and invokes them. To illustrate what I am endeavoring to convey here I would like to share some recent experiences. I am a professional psychic, spiritual advisor, motivational counselor, life coach, poet, author and singer by profession. One of the things I enjoy about doing so many different things is that I am hired to work as a psychic reader at parties for all occasions. There I can offer spiritual counseling and advice, psychic impressions and entertainment all in one.

In mid September I received an email from one of my clients that said, “Michael, I met you at a psychic party a few years ago. I had my first reading and I was surprised at how emotional it was for me. I’d like to have you over for a party in mid October. There will be at least ten of us, maybe more.” I booked the party and we were set to go. As the days passed, this little gnawing feeling came upon me that something wasn’t quite right. I could not pinpoint it but something was up. On Friday the day before the party I received an email from my client. “Michael, my list is dwindling. People have been canceling. We are down to four definites and maybe two more. One may bring a friend so at best I’ll have seven. At worst four. If you don’t think that will be worth your time, please let me know. I’ll understand and we can cancel.”

Well that email confirmed the nagging feeling I had been having. My first reaction was a ‘negative one.’ “Of course that is not enough people to make the trip worthwhile,” I said out loud as though talking to Cindy in person. I felt anger surging through me and I wondered why I had not insisted on the deposit I usually get to hold the space for parties. I also usually stick to my policy of a minimum of ten people. I could feel a big tug and knot forming in my solar plexus as my mood continued to dampen and my spirits drop. I began to sink lower until I could feel a depression coming over me. Depression was followed by self-pity and more anger. I continued to rant and rave. “I was counting on that $400.00 from that party to make my car payment which is due in a couple of weeks. Darn it.”

Then out of the blue I heard this little voice in my head say. “This does not have to be a negative experience.” Easy for you to say I almost blurted out, but the words just would not come out. Then it was like a big light bulb lit up in my head. I felt guilty for being so negative as it’s not ordinarily my nature to get so emotional, upset and negative so easily and quickly. I thought some more and then said, “I am not going to let one little situation depress and drag me down. So what if nobody shows up and the party cancels. It’s not the end of the world. There is plenty more where that came from. I can choose not to get caught up in the negativity. “Yes, I choose not to get caught up in the negative,” I said several times.

Next I started imagining money coming from other sources and directions to reinforce my saying that there is more where that comes from. I visualized dollar bills all over the place. The energy began to shift. My mood lightened. Then I knew that I would go on with the party. I would do readings for whoever was there and be grateful for the business and the lives that I would touch. I felt much better and I was even happier that I had chosen to shift my thinking and feelings to a positive one. Then I received a hunch that I would have closer to ten people than four. I even sent my client good thoughts and in the email I said, “Cindy, I am looking forward to the party. I will be there no matter how many show up.” I also imagined her making a few more phone calls. Eight people showed up at the party. I earned enough to make my car payment with some money left. My heart rejoiced and I thanked my guides for the prosperity and abundance.

I think that part of the reason the attendance increased was that not only did I shift my attitude and thinking, but also that I actively engaged in what is called the ‘act as if’ step in creating abundance. I visualized and proceeded to act and feel as if I were blessed with abundance. The good feelings stayed with me the rest of the day. When I got home from the party I had an email from a regular client who wanted to schedule a reading. “Thanks, spirit,” I said, joyfully. “Bring on the magic and miracles!”

We must be careful of the words we speak. Once I shifted my attitude I reinforced it by speaking the words “there is plenty where that comes from.” I did not say there might be or it would be nice if, or maybe there could be; all of which are negative affirmations guaranteed to neutralize our affirmations and render them useless. The other ‘little nasty’ one as I call it is “I can’t and I don’t have.” In saying there is plenty more where that came from I was affirming that reality. In essence I was creating it. For that which we name and give voice and expression to truly does manifest. The next day another client booked a session. On Monday I had three calls within an hour for three more readings.

Sometimes the universe and our guides are very specific in blessing us in small and detailed ways to remind us that they are constantly nearby and helping us. For example, I had a nurses party booked for the following Tuesday. There would be some one hundred nurses there. The director hired me and two other psychics for two hours. I wanted to pay the psychics their percentage in cash. I had enough from the other party to pay the first psychic and I was $20 short for the second one, as some of the clients from the first party had written me a check.

To show you how synchronicity and our guides work, on Monday, the day before the nurse party, one of my clients handed me a $20 bill and said, “can I write you a check for the other $20 as this is all the cash that I have on me.” Clients never pay me partly in cash and partly with a check. This simply does not happen. But it did happen and the cash portion she paid for her reading was the very exact amount I needed. Was that a mere coincidence? I do not think so. I believe that my guides were in on this. I had aligned my thoughts in a positive flow and the result is that the law of attraction was set into motion and was manifesting positive experiences and abundance because I had chosen to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. The nurse party was a hit and my psychics and I were grateful to be of service and for the prosperity we were blessed with. As I indulged in a beer over lunch with the girls, I remember thinking. This is Tuesday. I am leaving on Friday for three days to visit my friend in Eaton, Oh then next Friday I’ll be gone for a week to visit my family in Ky and then I’ll head to Mammoth Cave for my four day annual retreat.

I cranked up my imagination and visualized more money coming in as I touched the checks and cash waiting to be deposited into my credit union bank account. A couple hours later I received an email from a client saying, “Michael, when can I come over for a reading? I’m miserable.” I did the reading on Thursday evening. The next day was Friday and I was packed and set to go. I wasn’t leaving until noon and would spend the morning working on my new book. While driving to my credit union I said, “I could even do a reading before I leave for Eaton. Again, we need to watch what we ask for.

When I got back home I had an email from another regular client, Rhonda. “Michael, can you do an email reading for me today?” I did the reading and a half hour later a little voice told me to sign onto my live person psychic on-line business. Minutes later a request for a reading came from one of my regular clients. I had been so busy and not been signed on much for several weeks. But he found me at that precise time when I had put ‘out to the universe’ I’d like some more prosperity before I left for my trip. Was this a coincidence? No. Tears fell down my face and I was truly humbled.

I do not claim to always be in the flow. I think that after all these years of working with the law of attraction, that I have a pretty good idea and understanding of how it works. I have seen this universal law of attraction in action many times in my life and in the lives of many others. Still there are times when I get out of synch and my abundance slows down or even totally comes to a screeching halt. I allow myself to indulge in a ‘poor me pity party’ for a little while. I cry and moan and the whole nine yards. I think that this is okay. Perhaps such relapses occur to humble us and keep us on our toes.

So called bad things can also happen to good people for other reasons such as soul contracts agreed upon before we were born and soul choices to experience particular challenges, not necessarily for karmic reasons, but for desired growth. Being born into abject misery and poverty does not always mean that the soul stole from others or created misery for them in other lives, although it often does. Sometimes the soul will simply choose a more challenging lifetime for the mere experience of learning about polarity and duality. It may have experienced many lifetimes with relatively few, if any, challenges and then decide to see what it is like to be faced with struggle and conflict. I think of one of my teachers who used to say that growth comes from irritation. An old gospel song says “If I never had a problem I’d never know that God could solve them.”

Sometimes we will choose such lives for the mere learning opportunities that are offered from adversity. I do believe that every adversity has an equal or greater benefit. I have learned this the hard way you could say. I would not change my horrible childhood for anything. It made me stronger and made me seek spiritual help within and outside myself. The challenges led me to discover my soul’s own resources as well as strengthened my resolve and faith in God, my angels, my guides, and my resolve and fierce determination to heal and become a beacon of hope for others.

By the same token, there are many soul contracts and agreements which result from karma we have incurred from our previous lives with different individuals or groups. Such lessons are pre-planned and are a part of our growth, destiny, and soul evolution. Yet, even taking our karma into account does not mean we are doomed to live a life of misery; that is unless we were very bad in some past lives and have soul contracted to pay off many bad past life deeds in the current lifetime. Fortunately, such scenarios are unusual and rare. There is also the element of ‘grace’ where our guides are sometimes permitted to assist us. I believe with the ascension process that is currently raising the entire planetary vibrations and the energies so heightened now, that most of us are able to work off or even transcend our bad karma through service and love to humankind.

Another factor to be aware of if our dreams are ‘not’ manifesting is how in touch are we with our true self; our inner self and our subconscious mind? The subconscious mind is very powerful and affects us far more than we are usually conscious of. We can talk about the book The Secret until the cows come home, do our creative visualization exercises and state our positive affirmations and still not get results if our subconscious mind does not believe this. We can talk about abundance and prosperity all we want but if the subconscious has incorporated the belief system that ‘money is the root of all evil’ and a bad thing, we will sabotage our prosperity and abundance. The same goes for relationships.

I have a dear friend who constantly talks about wanting to find a good man to marry. Let us recall that often the subconscious mind will try to get our attention in many ways to show us what we really believe instead of what we claim to believe. This sometimes occurs in those proverbial ‘Freudian Slips’ that we make or even things we say where it becomes obvious that we don’t ‘really’ believe what we claim to believe and say.

Back to my dear friend. She will go on and on about wanting a husband and marriage then in the next sentence she will say that men are stupid, selfish, ignorant jerks. I have called her upon it more than once, reminding her that not ‘all’ men are stupid, ignorant jerks even though there are a lot of them as there are women as well. My friend wonders why she does not attract men. The answer is that her subconscious has incorporated her belief that men are jerks and sabotages every potential relationship. Her subconscious belief is so ingrained that she does not even attract men. I think she could very well be an emotional lesbian and might do better with a woman, though she claims she loves men. I also believe that she has not come to terms with her father. He put her down as a child, constantly calling her ‘fattie’ and such, and I sense that such experiences help create her distrust or liking of men. Yet she claims that she has forgiven him and all is well. Then why does she not attract men? As the saying goes denile, denial, ain’t just a river in Egypt. If we are deluded from ourselves how can we attract the relationship and love or prosperity we crave? It is when we are daring enough to meet and confront our fears, and inner demons that we can become free.

The truth is that human beings are really very complex. I personally know about the strength of the subconscious mind as I am a writer. I’ve struggled as a tortured artist most of this lifetime and in my last life as well, from the past life regressions I’ve had. Consciously, I have known for years how I love to write and I even gave up a career as a college professor to pursue my writing dream. So why has it been a struggle for over twenty years and why have I stopped and started so many times? The answer is that my subconscious mind has not believed in my worth as an artist. Why is this? It is because as a child my father constantly berated and criticized me, putting me down by saying things like I would never amount to anything. That I was a loser etc. The inner child accepted that and those words were so strong from an abusive father that my subconscious mind adopted them as truth. So even though I’d claim how badly I ached to receive recognition, money, status etc. for my hard work and tons of hours writing and editing, my subconscious had accepted that I was basically worthless.

I recall going into a major depression several years back when my first story was published. I looked at the cover design, read the story, and was filled with joy. But the next morning I woke up extremely depressed. It made no sense. My friends thought I was acting crazy. After all this time and so many rejections I finally got published. I should be in seventh heaven. The only person who understood me was my friend who was also a psychotherapist. She knew right away what was up. I called her and told her I was depressed when I should be jubilant. “I know why you are depressed,” she said softly. “Your inner child does not believe he is worth success because his daddy always put him down. This breakthrough you have made with your hard work and efforts has upset the apple cart as the saying goes. Your inner child still hears those mean things his daddie used to say, and he still believes them. The only way you are going to get over this and learn to love your art and embrace success is to face, confront and deal with the ‘part’ of you that thinks you are piece of s…t. It is your inner child who is depressed. It always is the inner child who gets depressed.” That was a lot to swallow but I listened and we had a few sessions. I realized that my dear friend was totally right. Once I started facing the part of me that thought I was worthless, I was able to see ‘that part’ for what it was and how it had been sabotaging my dreams for most of my life.

So if your dreams are not manifesting, you may have some subconscious blocks that can be sabotaging your prosperity. If this is the case than you have some inner soul work to do. The good news is that you are not alone. Your guides and perhaps counselors and therapists can help you find out what is really going on at a subconscious level. Once we get to the roots of our fears and beliefs that sabotage our dreams, we are in a position to choose to release them. But it takes work and willingness which can be very challenging and difficult.

The Greeks said “KNOW THYSELF!” It is in knowing and becoming acquainted with our subconscious self. It can be our dearest most treasured friend guide and mentor, for it has access to all of our memories and even the collective unconscious and all the knowledge therein as Swiss Psychologist Carl G. Jung speaks so much about.

The examples in this article remind me that we can choose to turn a negative situation into a positive one. When our thoughts begin to change to a more positive nature and frame of mind, our feelings naturally follow suit. Our energy shifts and our very auras begin to brighten and to glow. The universal law of attraction senses this glow and shift of our frequency and vibration. Then the tides of destiny begin to move in our direction and good fortune and good things start showing up.

Success and happiness are our birthrights! Let us stand tall and proud and claim it. And let us remember that it is by changing our thoughts that our feelings change and then we can create magic and miracles.
