Do your beliefs help or hinder you?

Standard


Today we’re going to explore a little bit about something that is a very important part of our lives – Beliefs. Yup that’s right! Beliefs.

Our beliefs are the fundamental tools of our thinking process which when changed and modified appropriately help us to change our life patterns substantially. Have you ever thought to think about where our beliefs come from? Do we get them from our parents, our peers, our cultural/ religious or social values , perhaps they are self created, maybe all of these things,maybe none of them at all.

What’s important to realize is that the things that we hold on to as beliefs can either hold us back in life or propel us forward towards better things. For example, have you ever been raised with the belief that money is no good or that money is the root of all evil. Or maybe that rich people are not honest… Think about it…if you look at this belief, it is essentially stopping you from being more abundant financially than where you are now. Because neither do you want to be evil nor do you want to be bad.And you definitely don’t want to be a dishonest induvidual. Because you associate money with all of these things, you subconsciously block the flow of financial wealth into your life.

What if you were to look at this in a different way. Supposing you decide that maybe you would rather believe that money is easily and effortlessly available. Or that good people invite more abundance into their lives. Would you then experience a shift in perspective and therefore your outer reality?

So today I’d like to suggest that you take some time to think over some of the main beliefs that you have in your life and whether they are holding you back in life or propelling your forward to better things. Then consider, how you can reframe your beliefs to more positively impact your life! It is after all your beliefs that shape your world.

Fine Tuning Your Manifestation,The Law of Attraction Part IV

Standard

Over the past few weeks we looked at some pointers for successfully mastering the Law of Attraction. This week we’ll be looking at some additional tools, to help you fine tune the manifestation process and clear some more rubble from your path to success 🙂

Successful manifestation relies on many factors, chief amongst them the mastery of your thoughts. Mastering your thoughts simply means observing your thoughts and consciously being able to control them, so that you actually start thinking the way of a master manifestor. In theory atleast, this seems simple enough. But when you actually sit down to gain mastery of your mind you come to the realisation , as I did , that it can be a highly daunting task. For one thing, consider the fact that your mind processes a million thoughts a day. Most of us barely have time to focus on a single thought. When we’re running from one thing to another in our daily lives thinking about all the things we need to do or are doing, we don’t really focus on the more important things of realising what our thoughts actually are, and often how very fear or worry based they really are.

Meditation

Meditation as means of mastering your thoughts

A very useful tool to observe and gain control of your thoughts is meditation.  Now, meditation is not as really complicated or difficult as it sounds. A willingness to practice and consistency in application is the key to success. I meditate on the way to work in my company bus, because that’s the one time when I’m not distracted and have a good 30 minutes to myself. Aim for 5 minutes as a beginner, and then slowly work yourself up.  The idea is to come to a point where you are consistently aware of your thoughts so you can isolate and drop the thoughts that are negative and retrain yourself to think a positive way. Watch the thought, control and manipulate. With a consistent meditation practice, this process will slowly and surely find it’s way to your conscious thought process as well, so in your waking state whether at home or at work you will quickly change gears from negative to positive thinking.

Strategic visualisation is another important tool in the process of manifestation. As a process , effective visualisation is completely different from say plain imagination or fantasy. Take some time off daily,or even as often as you wish, to practice visualisation, ideally in a quiet spot where you can focus undisturbed. Take the image of one of things that you wish for and keep it’s image at the centre of your mind. For instance, let’s say you are looking for a soulmate. Look at the image of your soul mate in terms of what you would want to him to look like. See his face, the colour of his eyes, the hair , the smile. Start allowing the good feelings to flow as this image comes up. Visualise how good it feels having him around you now. Visualise the 2 of you together, talking , laughing, sharing intimacy, holding hands. Immerse yourself in the experience. After a few minutes or as long as it takes you to get to that good feeling, slowly open your eyes. You’d be surprised at how ecstatically happy you”ve become. This is the kind of strategic visualisation that you need to practice to attain your goals. Do this regularly and always, and as often as you can. And never let the feeling drop.

Another very important tool in successful manifestation is removing negativity from your life. As I’ve said before, and many

Thinking Positive thoughts.

Thinking Positive thoughts.

times over, negativity whether it be thoughts or emotions blocks the flow of successful manifestation. Start learning to love and appreciate the things in your life. If you don’t like your job now, and you’re looking for better prospects, don’t think in terms of “oh how I hate my job”, think in terms of ” I really do love my job”. Learn to look at things as learning experiences and think in terms of gratefulness and appreciation. Love comes from a space of acceptance. Bring the higher vibrations of love into your life by constantly appreciating and being grateful for everything you have. Fear is the opposite of love. And it is the fear we are trying to eliminate in the manifestation process. Aim to make love the focus of your life.  Over a period of time, if you are diligent , you will notice changes in the way you look at things…you lose the need to struggle ..and the need to strive. Life becomes easy, simply because you love your life and everything in it.

The Law of Attraction is not complicated . All it requires as a conscious willingness to apply the concepts and putting in the necessary work to achieve success. There are many ways to overcome obstacles, and if your heart is in the right direction and your mind is focussed on getting to your goal, you will always find a way. Believe it for it is so.

Breaking Down Barriers , The Law of Attraction Part III

Standard

I’m simply thrilled with the new followers that have recently joined An Urban Mystic’s Blog . It feels like I’ve made some more friends in the WordPress neighbourhood.  I took some time out to read as many posts as I could over the last 2 weeks, and I was quietly impressed by the amount of sheer talent and creativity buzzing around. A lot of pieces of were inspirational, some of them funny, a few heartwarming, and many were incredibly thought provoking. I saw some amazing cartoons and heard some fantastic music too. The written word is a powerful representation and I  enjoyed getting introduced to you through your beautiful offerings to the world. A very warm welcome to the Urban Mystic’s virtual home! 🙂

So, we took a short hiatus from the Law of Attraction because I (  as usual) was trying to pack as much as possible into a 24 hr day and I ( as usual) was running amok to try and get everything out on time. The dust seems to be settling..for now atleast. Coming back to the matter at hand, let’s take a look at Part III of the Law of Attraction series, and this week’s post is a biggie. We’re going to be exploring the things that stand in the way of being able to manifest the things that you really want in your life. Woo hoo!

A lot of people believe that the Law of Attraction is just simply airy fairy wishful thinking.  Not True. Like we talked about in Part I of the series, the Law of Attraction is as natural as the cycles and seasons of the earth. It works whether you choose to believe in it or not. It’s just there, and runs in the background regardless of even your awareness of it. Why then do some people not get what they’re looking for despite their very sincere attempts at manisfestation.

Here’s the thing. It’s important that your emotions and your feelings are ALIGNED with your thoughts. Now, when I say aligned, it simply means that the clear, specific goal that you’ve set for yourself should generate feelings of hope, happiness and excitement within you. If your goal in anyway does not make you feel this way, you pretty much have a block. And this block tends to stand in the middle between you and your goal, and the twain therefore do not meet.

Think about for instance your goal of manifesting $ 100,000. You’ve set this goal and made it as specific as possible. You’ve said ” I already have the $ 100,000 dollars I wanted. It feels good in my hands and I like the smell of these freshly printed banknotes. I can’t wait to spend it on the things I want. It has come through to me in the safest of ways. And I continue to receive abundantly.” Awesome! Fantastic! But what do you really FEEL about getting this money inside in your heart of hearts. You’re saying the words but are you feeling it?. Do you really thing it’s possible to get all that money just by willing it to happen?. Think about this very carefully now, because your answer holds the key to that door which stands in the way of you receiving immeasurable abundance.

Many people are brought up with the feeling that money has to be earned, and that there’s no such thing as “easy money”. A lot of people also have a common belief and feeling that money is  the root of all evil. With thoughts like this it’s next to impossible to flow into material abundance. It’s important to come to a place where you genuinely feel deserving of all the good things that are already there in your life and continue to flow inwards.  Without this, the Law of Attraction might not get you the results you are looking for. It will continue to work but it will attract to you what you really believe in, in your heart of hearts. If you keep repeating to yourself that you’re going to get the money in an attempt at manifestation but in your heart you’re really not resonating with this thought, it’s anybody’s guess what’s going to happen next.

So the “homework” for this week is to examine your thought processes and feelings moment to moment or as often as is possible and

look for thoughts that are not in harmony with abundance. Anything that causes resistance or creates feelings of heaviness/sadness/depression/worry and so forth create discord in manifestation, and you need to work on eliminating them from your conscious and unconscious minds. When you think about a particular goal, and you start to feel the heaviness, clearly something is wrong and getting down and focusing on your heart and your breath will give some sense of direction as to what the cause for addressal really is. Remember to control the negative thoughts and stick to the process of immediately replacing negative thoughts with positive feelings and associations untill it becomes a habit. The Law of Attraction loves people who function from a joyous, grateful and optimistic perspective.

On that note, I take your leave for this week.

As always if there’s anything you want to talk about or comment on, I’m happy to hear from you. Blessings, Peace , Prosperity. Namaste 🙂

Setting Your Goals , The Law of Attraction Part II

Standard

There’s nothing like hearing the deep, powerful, sensuous voice of a Rocker . It pulls you fast out of inertia, switches on all the sleepy electrical nerve endings in your brain(especially on a lazy weekend morning), and makes you wanna write till you drop. Today it’s Incubus – Black Heart Inertia and that’s gonna keep running in the background on loop untill I get my writing done 🙂 . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1e4nIxSVUk

In last week’s post, we talked about some of the basics of the Law of Attraction and some key principles to using the Law effectively. Today, in Part II of the series, we will be looking at delving a little more deeply into the magical art of materialising all the things you’ve always been wanting to have. Plenty of good stuff on the way  🙂

Now then. Whenever you walk into a store with the aim of making a purchase, you know exactly what you’re looking for right?. You don’t draw a blank when the sale guy/girl asks you what you want. You definitely have a hazy idea of what you’re looking for at the very least.

Always Dream Big

It’s like that with the Law of Attraction too. Are you clear about what you want or you unsure? There is no way you’re getting what you want, if you’re not clear about what it is you’re looking for to begin with. It’s a bit like when you say you need a car . That’s fine in itself as an objective, but what type of car – color, make, design, convertible.  You also say you need a man. That’s great too. But what type of man – caring , affectionate, best friend, romantic, black hair, sky blue eyes. You get the drift. The more specific you are , the better.  Rather than just saying “I need a new house”, go for something along the lines of “I need a 2 floor level house ,3 bedrooms with attached bathrooms, fully furnished, close to the city but within easy reach of the sea. It should be brand new, freshly painted walls, spatious and well lit. I should feel great when I walk into the house each and every time. Feels just like home”.

The interesting thing about the Law of Attraction is that for most people it’s not instantaneous manifestation. It takes a little bit of time to get the object in the rear view mirror. And that’s OK too. You have that time to tweak , think & modify in the meantime.  Also, it’s not the end of the world when you get what you want, and you’ve decided it needs some perfecting. Keep tweaking your thoughts until you’re more clear about your end result.  The most important thing in using the Law of Attraction effectively is having a very clear and specific objective of what you’re trying to achieve.

Also, let’s remember ! There is no limit to what you can achieve in the Universe or in this lifetime. Don’t be afraid to dream bigger and set higher goals than you’ve ever done before. The Universe is abundant and there is a limitless supply of everything you could ever want. The only limits that exist are those that are self imposed, the limits that you create for yourself.

So this week , let’s take some out to jot down what our specific goals for the manifestation process are .  Hold the thoughts in your mind, and stay tuned, because next week we’re going to look at fine tuning our manifestation process. W’e’ve only just begun! 🙂

Thank you Brandon Boyd.

Manifesting Your Heart’s Desires, The Law of Attraction Part I

Standard

I was talking to my baby sister the other day, and at some point in the Law of Attractionconversation we “ascended” into the topic of the Law of Attraction.  Now, here’s the deal.  My “baby” sister is 27 years old and lives in another country, far far away on the distant horizons of the Arabian Sea.  She was really interested in the subject, and the challenge now is to coach her on the basics of the Law of Attraction from across the miles.  It’s a bit like distant learning. And whilst I’m coaching her, I may as well pass on the golden nuggets of wisdom to my fellow bloggers….. killing 2 birds with 1 stone 🙂

So here goes…

If I were to tell you that everything in your life right now, is a direct result of all of your previous thoughts and emotions would that surprise you? And, knowing that, if i were to tell you, simply by shifting your thoughts and emotions in even the smallest of ways you can achieve the life of your dreams, would you be willing to lend a ear and listen further?

The Law of Attraction will work whether you choose to believe it or not. Indeed, it works even if you have no knowlegde of it at all. It’s one of the many incredible Laws of the Universe, that’s as old as time itself, used by Kings and foot soldiers, monks and yogis, dancers and preachers, indeed, every type of person imaginable. A lot of the principles of the Law of Attraction were lost with the passage of time, but the Law is now enjoying a resurgence in popularity with the increasing interest that people have in living more authentic and happier lives.

One of the key things to remember with the Law of Attraction, is that the Universe functions on the premise of Like Attracts Like.  What and how you are, is what you will attract into your life.  If you are constantly unhappy and miserable, negative and ungrateful, you will continue to attract events which resonate and support your negative thought processes and emotions. Conversely, by constantly keeping yourself positive and joyous , you will attract situations that create happiness and positivity. Like attracts Like.

Next , there needs to be willingness to unlearn everything you’ve learnt before to make positive and vibrant changes in your life. When we say “unlearn”, it simply means a willingness to let go of outdated thoughts , beliefs and processes that no longer serve you. It’s similar to drinking from a cup of old coffee. Would you add new coffee to the left over coffee? No way! You would clean out the contents of the cup and then pour in new fresh coffee. You wouldn’t drink it otherwise. It’s important to clean out your existing thought processes, before you can work from a brand new and fresh perspective.

thoughts-become-thingsBelieve that you have the power to recreate your life and live the best life that you can live. It does not matter what has gone before and what goes on now. Your life from this moment on, is yours to change and you have within you incredible power to make your life the best you can be. All the opportunities are staring at you right in the face, only you are not aware of them. A willingness and desire  to change is what drives and fuels the creation of a life of your dreams.

Stay tuned, and we will explore more of the Law of Attraction in my upcoming blog posts. 🙂 .

Namaste.
