Following your own guidance.

Following your own guidance.

The more and more each is impelled by that which is intuitive, or the relying upon the soul force within, the greater, the farther, the deeper, the broader, the more constructive may be the result.”

Edgar Cayce

Intuition is defined as ‘a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.’ The word ‘intuition’ comes from the Latin word “intueri”, which means to see within.

Intuition has been referred to in many different ways including sixth sense, following your heart, guidance, inspiration and inner wisdom.

However we may choose to refer to it, the Law of Attraction explains that everyone is an extension of source energy and has access to infinite intelligence within them. Also, as everyone is unique with unique intentions and desires, everyone’s guidance from infinite intelligence is unique to them.

Guidance or intuition can come in many different forms including feelings, dreams, visions, hearing the same thing several times in a short period of time and synchronicities. However, whilst it can come in different ways some of which are outer signs you can know the significance of it by how it feels.

There are also different reasons as to why you receive guidance, often it is to lead you in a particular direction, whilst at other times it is to reassure you that things are working out for you and that there is a loving universe that is aware of and assisting you.

It has been said that guidance takes into account an infinite number of factors from a higher perspective and that usually we are not aware of all of these factors as if we were, we would be overloaded with unnecessary information, when all we need is the guidance about what to do or what to think.

In relation to this sometimes the guidance doesn’t seem logical, however the more people begin to pay attention to it, the more they usually see that it is assisting them. For instance as guidance is operating in a non-linear framework, someone’s guidance might tell them to meet a friend on Saturday afternoon but logically they know they can’t because they have a client on Saturday afternoon.

However their infinite intelligence is taking into account the fact that the client is going to reschedule their appointment. Another interesting aspect of guidance is that usually you are not given guidance for the whole of your journey but rather moment by moment guidance for the next step.

A key part of living the Law of Attraction is developing an increased awareness of and relationship with your intuition. People are sometimes taught to listen to others, rather than to follow what feels right to them, however as they begin to increasingly follow their own guidance, they become more of their own authority in their life and to know that their unique guidance matters. Following your own guidance also leads to life being easier and more of an exciting adventure.

It can be best to begin to follow your guidance on things that are more inconsequential such as which way to walk or drive. The more you listen to and follow your guidance the more you will then having an increasing ability to discern what is guidance and what isn’t and you will gain more and more confidence and trust in your own guidance and how it is benefiting you.

Whilst guidance is always available there are several things that you can do to open yourself to receive it more. One powerful way is to firstly begin to pay attention to it and to appreciate it when you do receive it, as this will keep you in a receptive mode to allow more guidance to flow.

Also, as infinite intelligence is operating on the level of love and appreciation through doing regular lists of appreciation you will have greater access to guidance. Furthermore meditating regularly clears the mind which allows guidance to be more easily recognised.

A final technique that can be useful if you have a particular decision to make, is to write down a request to the universe such as “allow me to know which direction to take in my life” and to then go into meditation. Very often through having firstly clarified and focused on the question by writing it, an answer will come to you during the unresisted time of meditation. However, even if it doesn’t come to you immediately if you do your best to stay open to receiving an answer at a later time, the answer will very likely come.

Connect with Your Ultimate Self.

The Ultimate Cause of Everything: Connect with Your Ultimate Self

The Ultimate Cause of Everything: Connect with Your Ultimate Self

Connect with Your Ultimate Self.

When looking at causation, we need to ask: What causes things? What is the ultimate cause of everything? By taking a look at the universe we can see that everything is interlinked at such a level that we can’t help but wonder if anything really can happen. We need to understand that it’s up to the universe to make things happen. The entire universe needs to conspire to cause them to happen.

There’s this wonderful saying that I like: “When I pull a blade of grass, the entire universe shakes.” Scientists and philosophers around the world will agree with and validate the fact that things are interconnected. Everything is interlinked even at microscopic level. But all this causality and interlinking occurs in space and time. When it comes to enlightenment, what we’re talking about is that which is before, beyond and transcends space and time. In this realm, this realm beyond description, there is no causality. Everything and the world just is, because it is. There is no cause and everything has no cause.

Often I compare this analogy to water or the vast ocean. The ocean can take various shapes. It can transform itself into ice cubes that are magnificent, beautiful universes shaped out of ice. Or, it can transform into steam, becoming beautiful, wonderful heavens and hells created out of steam. But ultimately, everything that is created comes out of an ocean. It is a vast, infinite ocean that always was and always will be. Our minds, on the other hand, are part of the space-time continuum. Concepts and theories lie because they seek causation but they’re part of a change. That which is permanent, however, does not change. The ocean which we are is, always has been and always will be.

The universe that we live in now isn’t caused; it just is. All there exists is this vast ocean of consciousness that’s ultimately all it can be. We perceive change and differences because of space and time. But the ultimate reality of who or what we are is this vast ocean of awareness, universes, gods, religion, that are all created out of this oneness. It is this non-dual, non-causal, ultimate reality of who we are.

When we relax we let the mind be still. We connect with that ultimate, true self of who we are by quieting the mind. By just being, there is a connection and we awaken to who we are. It is called enlightenment but it is an awakening to our true self. It is waking up to our ocean, our infinite, everlasting state that is beyond concepts and is who we are.

This is where causality ceases and we just be. When we let go of all our concepts – life, death, self, non-self – and we just be, we enter the ultimate reality: that which always is, and always has been.  We awaken to enlightenment. When our minds are still, absolutely still, we wake up to who we are and what we find is that we are no more. What we are is infinite. The small “I” exists no more. Again, it’s like the ice cube melting and realizing “Ah! I’m not an ice cube, I’m an ocean. I always have been and I always will be. I’ve never really ultimately been an ice cube. I’m the ultimate, true, infinite self. Wow!”

The problem is that we often get caught into thinking “Ah! I’m an ice cube. The universe is an ice cube. It’s real. It’s tangible.” But guess what? It will melt away. Someday everything will be gone except for that which always has been and always will be. Be that. You and I are that.

When we wake up to this true, infinite self of who we are, then we relax and are at peace. All is well because we realize that we don’t have to fear anything or desire anything. Everything is and we are that.
Be that and stop identifying with every label you give; there is no more “I” in this state. There just is, without causation.

Fear, Worry and Doubt ~ The Enemies Of Your Self-Confidence

Do you feel sometimes as being in the middle of a desert? When you started  you had a clear vision of your goals, but now you don’t know any more whether  you are going in a right direction, you have begun to fear, worry and doubt.  This is usually the moment we leave the right path and start going around in  circles. I was once doing my research in the Middle East and took a taxi to go  somewhere, but my taxi driver didn’t have faith in me, and every time I asked  him to go straight, he turned right or left. Thus, I wasted lot of time driving  around in circles until he decided to trust me and we reached our destination.  Worry and fear cause doubt which is the biggest reason of all the failures in  our lives. Our confidence is cut off when we are fearful and worried.

doubt_diceRobert Anthony says that “self-confidence is the inner feeling of certainty”. Brian Tracy states that successful people act in spite of  fear, while unsuccessful people let fear stop them, because successful people  are self-confident and they move intuitively in the right direction. Self-confidence is not just a self-confident look on your  face, acting like you are better than others. It is your inner guidance and  peace of mind. It simply means having faith in oneself. Self-confidence gives us  energy to create our dreams. Steve G. Jones says that our lives are shaped by  decisions that we make and the decision to act is fueled by confidence. If you  want to land at your dream job but lack the confidence to make the decision to  act in a way that would bring you closer to your goals, you will probably wind  up without achieving your goal. Confidence is a resource which is both  invaluable and essential toward the achievement of any goal.

We often let worry take over our lives, as worry is almost our God.  Atkinson says that “a man may worry himself  to death and yet nothing will be accomplished, but when he transmutes his worry  and discontent into desire and belief, then something happens.”  Rev.  Christopher Ian Chenoweth compares worrying to being in a rocking chair. You are  rocking back and forth, back and forth – you feel like you are doing something,  but you are not getting anywhere.  You are just mentally and physically  tiring yourself out. Thinking about all the things that could be wrong or go  wrong doesn’t make your life any more controllable or safer.  Mark Twain  said once: “I’ve suffered a great many catastrophes in my life. Most of them  never happened”. 99% of what we worry about, never come to pass.  Worry can  never accomplish anything. Worry is negative and destructive. William Walker  Atkinson claims in his book “Thought Vibration Or the Law of Attraction in the  Thought World” that worry is the child of fear – if you kill out fear, worry  will die for want of nourishment.

The act of worrying is using your imagination and emotion to create something  you do not want. If you are in a situation where you haven’t got any results in  achieving your goals, and you start to question and doubt, you are moving away  from your goals. Joseph Murphy states that our subconscious mind creates our  reality through the pictures we accept  and hold. If you have been doing affirmations over a period of years and still  getting nowhere, it would be wise to look inwardly at the pictures that you have  been holding about yourself. If you are not sure, if you doubt, then it will not  come to pass, because the messages you send to your subconscious mind are  controversial and you sabotage your goals. That is why we fail to manifest what  we want.

Brad Yates provides an example how contradictory thoughts influence our  manifestation. If we imagine ourselves going to a restaurant and ordering a  hamburger, but immediately as the waiter walks away, you say, “I really  shouldn’t have that. Maybe I should order a salad. Or maybe I should have a  sandwich.” The waiter stands there waiting for you to make up your mind, and you  wonder why you don’t have your hamburger yet. Our subconscious mind is like this  waiter, he can’t serve us if we send contradictory signals to it. Some people  try visualizing and affirming what they want for a moment, but then they spend  the rest of the time undoing this creation by worrying and doubting. Joseph  Murphy reminds us that when our desires and imagination are in conflict, our  imagination invariably wins. Ron Holland confirms it in his book “Eureka Enigma”  by saying that when the words and the pictures are in conflict it is always the  pictures that win.

Rev. Chenoweth advises to say to yourself: “The worry stops here!” You must do it at the moment when you  feel worried, not later. Focus only on what you desire. Do not focus on your  fear of not achieving your goal. If you doubt it, then it will not come to pass.  Chenoweth says that if we see our problem as a heavy rope, it seems to be strong  and unbreakable. And yet this rope is made of individual strands. If you would  take it apart, it would be easy to break these strands even with bare hands. If  you stop worrying and trying too hard to get solutions consciously, your  subconscious mind will solve problems for you, and you start to move intuitively  in the right direction. You have to shift your awareness to your desired reality  in order to draw it into manifestation. The key is to feel comfortable with  thinking, talking and acting in a state where your desire is already a reality.  This means that you must relax and release all stress related to achieving your  goal.  You have the power to bring yourself into harmony with who you  really are – a being that has infinite possibilities of experiencing great  success in life.
