Do you agree?I coach an average of four people a week in "reality creation". Most of them initially focus their words on entirely unwanted thoughts and stories. They are all familiar with my teachings, but as if they had never heard of them, they go "I`m not good at that", "I have difficulty with that", "My problem is...", "My limitations are...", "I've had a really hard time with...". I have rarely heard a session begin with "I am healthy" "I am talented" "I am happy" "I am beautiful" "I am free" "I am successful" "I am passionate" "I am secure" "I am generous" or similar positive self-descriptions. The words you speak and write have creative, self-defining power. Your words become your destiny. The words you speak about yourself, others and life either uplift or drag down. I don't mind when a student briefly describes the problems he is facing. I am referring here to the automatic and unconscious self-definitions people utter. A recent student repeated the following four times throughout our 1 hour session: "I lack energy. I am tired all the time". Not once did she say "I would like to be fresh and energized and awake throughout the day". So as a coach, I kept providing that statement. I explained to her that she should start repeating that thought instead. And what if she didn't believe in that statement? Why should she say that if she doesn't believe it? In that case she should repeat it until she believes it. And what if she still doesn't believe it? Then she should choose positive statements she does believe. If for example "I am fresh and energized" is difficult for her to believe, she could start with "I would like to be fresh and energized". A reality-creation session often begins with describing what you want in more and more detail, not what you don't want. For this I usually ask a lot of questions aimed to focus a person in that direction. The next step is to help them identify with what they want, to move from mere "wanting" to a feeling of "already having". The third step is to think from, act from and speak from the new reality henceforth. But in my experience, even just the first step of shifting from the unwanted to the wanted can present a challenge. So after a few minutes of focusing on what is wanted, some will try to steer back to their old, familiar reality with shifting statements such as these: "But let me explain the issue" "Can I first tell you why I have these issues?" "Yes, but there is a little problem". "I think its better to describe the problem first, so that you understand my situation" Even if I keep reminding them that attention should be on the new-story and that I have little interest in supporting their old stories, they might find a way around it, in an attempt to turn the coaching-session into a therapy-talk of past upsets rather than a reality creation talk of future dreams. Why is this the case? It is because old and familiar realities feel more real, comfortable and strong. New thoughts and life-stories feel vague, weak and unreal. Why? Because they haven't been given any attention. They are on familiar terrain when talking about "issues". They go into the unknown when crafting new realities. Some peoples old realities are so charged with emotion, that I allow them to talk-negative for a while, to release some of that charge. But I won't allow those stories for too long, because anyone in a bad situation really needs to invest some energy into new stories. If they have been telling their old stories for the last 30 years, its high time to tell new stories for the next 30 years. Negative thinking is much less of an issue than negative talking. Having bad thoughts is one thing. Expressing those bad thoughts another. Thoughts in and of themselves don't have that much power. But once they are expressed, their energy increases, with much more rapid effects than mere thought. You may not have much control of your thoughts, but you always have control of your speech. Consider the following "common causes of death" statistics: I find it fascinating that war, murder and accidents are not common causes of death. Problems of the heart are the most common cause. In my view, this is because humans biggest problem is lack of love and kindness. The lack of love begins in their own unloving words toward themselves and others. If you are smart you will guard your words and never make negative verbal self-descriptions again. And if for some reason you think you have to provide descriptions and stories of unwanted realities, then at least don't emotionalize, sensationalize or exaggerate them. Your words tend to manifest when you are firmly identified and associated with them. They tend not to manifest when you are their de-identified observer. This is why "I am"-statements that you believe in, have the strongest effect. "I am"-statements that are followed by and demonstrated through corresponding actions have the very highest energy to form reality. The Top 10 Teachings of Reality Creation 1. In life, you don't get what you want, you get who you are. 2. There are many versions of you and you can choose to step into your next-higher-version. 3. There are many levels-of-consciousness and you can ascend them all. 4. You can attract a new reality by focusing thought, word and deed on a specific outcome. 5. Releasing only one heavy emotion, releases thousands of accompanying thoughts. 6. Negative emotions are released by letting them "run out" and "un-stack" without resistance. 7. Most realities can be created through personal will. When the limits of personal will are reached, then allow divine will to work its magic. 8. All lack comes from desire and resistance. 9. A tree is known by its fruit and truth is measured by results. 10. In Unconditional Love all things are possible. Belief requires no Proof Reality Creation is the art of believing in something you can’t see, you have no proof for. Instead of the common dictum of "I`ll believe it when I see it" you say "I`ll see it when I believe it". Do not rely on your eyes too much. They show you reality as it has already been created. Your eyes do not show you the reality that is in the process of manifesting, but what has already manifested. All your eyes can show you is the past. By relying too much on what you see, you believe most strongly in what already-is and therefore keep attracting into your life what already-is. If you wish to attract new things you need to put your attention to something other than only what you see in front of you. The purpose of faith is to build your trust in the invisible. The eyes are very much connected to the mind/ego. They deliver mostly self-centered and emotional data. Your eyes might deceive you to eat something that looks good but isnt. If you judge your new partner only by how they look, you may be missing vital pieces of info about them (which is why it is not that bad to get to know a new partner on the phone or the internet). Of course their looks will teach you something but so will the way they sound and feel. Faith is the trusting in things that cannot be seen. This point is lost on scientific-materialists who keep emphasizing that only that which can be seen and measured is of importance. While this certainly applies to matter, it should not apply to humans. You cannot “prove” love in a laboratory, and yet you love. You cant be certain you will be paid for a job, but you do the job trusting that you will. You cant be certain every car on the roads will follow the rules but most of the time they do and you trust that they do. I sometimes feel sorry for those who call us “idiots who believe in fairy tales”. They think they are incredibly smart in their ridicule. But the whole point of believing in fairy tales is to train your belief-muscle, to reach out into the intangible and invisible. That’s the only way something formerly impossible becomes possible. To calm the mind, close your eyes. To calm the mind, focus on sound. To know whether he/she is the right one for you, listen to him/her speak on the phone, rely not only on what you see. To know whether a deal is good, listen to your heart, dont rely only on what things appear to be. When judging a book, pay attention not only to the cover. Over-reliance on what is visible is a huge limitation. Advertisers who seek to manipulate your emotions talk about making things look good all the time. Why? Because they know people rely on what they see more than anything else. "Seeing is Believing" is nonsense. A few obvious things we all know exist which are invisible: The Air and Wind You can't see the Air and Wind, but you notice its effects in your hair and in the way the leaves rustle. Music You can't see music but it influences your state. Love You can't see Love. Nor can you measure it in a laboratory. Nor can you "scientifically prove" that its real. Yet you know it. Thoughts You can't measure them or prove them. Strictly speaking you can't see or hear them with your eyes or ears. And yet, they are real. In a way you can "see/hear" them with an inner sense. Temperature I certainly cant see temperature, but I can feel it. Gravity I cant see gravity, and it may never have occurred to us that it exists had we not had the comparison outside of earth. The force that keeps us from floating around does exist. The next time you hear someone say "Seeing is Believing" tell him about gravity, temperature, thoughts, music, love, the air and the numerous other things that exist without us "seeing" them. Before we even venture into ideas of ghosts, spirits and angels there is plenty going on in the invisible world. You cant see wind but you know it exists because you can see its effects. Likewise you cant see beliefs but you know they exist because you can see their effects. Belief requires no proof. You have no "proof" that the sun will rise tomorrow morning, and yet you base your entire day on the idea that there will be a tomorrow. You trust. If you can apply the same trust to your true hearts wish, it will come true. Wanting vs. Having Can you tell the difference between wanting and having? You cant stand up and sit down at the same time. Likewise you cant want and have at the same time. Wanting is the initial spark, but sooner or later you must feel that you can actually have the particular things you have been wanting. When you find yourself thinking too much you can be sure you are are immersed in Wanting, whether you know it or not. An Experiment: 1. Think of something you want. Notice what it feels like to want that thing. 2. Imagine already having that or being able to have it. Notice what that feels like. Move back and forth between the two states a few times, to teach your body-mind the difference. You decide whether to concentrate on wanting or one step higher being-able-to-have. "I am able to have" is more empowering than "I want" and for some even more empowering than "I already have" because it keeps the excitement of the "want" without taking its lack-feeling (whereas "I already have", if misunderstood, can take the excitement out for some) Thinking makes it so I recently read about a scientific experiment on wine testing. They had cheap wine,the same cheap wine labeled as expensive and actual expensive wine for people to test. All participants were having their brains scanned but none of them knew what the test was about. They only knew what the wines cost (or believed they cost). Not surprisingly, the cheap wine was thought to taste bad and the expensive wine was thought to taste good. The cheap wine labeled as expensive was also said to taste good. But here is what is surprising: The brain-scans indicated that not only was the cheap-wine-labeled-expensive thought to taste better, it actually did taste better to the participants. The cheap wine and the cheap-wine-labeled-expensive were the exactly same wine but they tasted different to the participants. The brain-readings indicated that the participants taste-buds were effected differently, not only their thoughts. So here is what appears to happen: Participant sees price tag and expects a better taste. The thought that it will taste better, creates a better taste. Or as Shakespeare said: "There is no good or bad but thinking makes it so". However, the experiment still revealed that the actually expensive wine actually tasted the best of all three, independent of the persons thoughts. That brings us back to the mysterious realm between subjective and objective reality. It is my view that the relationship is around 50-50. Hence, if you rummage around in a garbage bin, you wont get that smell off of you no matter what you believe. To perceive reality and energy-levels as they really are, you would have to be thoughtless, neutral, without expectation. To release an old reality you'd have to apply neutral attention to it. To create a new reality you'd have to develop positive expectations. Embrace the Unexpected You've probably heard the saying "Gods ways are mysterious". This also very much applies to the way goals and dreams come true. Reality Creation means to set a goal and repeat or focus on it until it comes true. But the manner in which it comes true is rarely what the Ego expects. Unless you work with conventional goal-setting and action steps, RC-Manifestations often take place when least expected. Don't give up on your exciting goals just because it look as if your life is taking another direction. The way things look on the outside is deceiving and there are often entirely different things going on in a realm invisible to the physical eyes. Embrace surprise, never fear the unknown. Examples of this emerge regularly for me. Just a few weeks ago I reluctantly accompanied an acquaintance of mine to the doctor, which was a waste of time in my opinion because I thought to know that she is perfectly healthy and also because I had more important things to do. But I relaxed my aversion toward going and resolved to enjoy it. Lounging around in the waiting room I struck up a conversation with a sanskrit-expert...this was precisely what I had been looking for to help me with a writing project. In fact I had written down that very intention just a few days ago, and here its manifestation awaited me at a place most unexpected! The key to such synchronicities is that you relax your resistance toward life and allow it to take you places. Because if your Intentions are clearly stated, life will take you there, even if you can't see how. Sudden Reality Shifts Sometimes thing get worse before they get much better. Why might that be? It's because creating a brand new reality can mean tampering with the status quo. Sometimes an old building needs to be disassembled before a new one can be built in its place. Over the years I have modified my teachings because it was noticed that my techniques can be "too much". Their sheer power really did create rapid and radical change, overhauling students realities within only a few days. Back in the years 2004-2006 I taught this way. For example one student would use my parallel-universe-technique for a "new job creation" and got fired immediately upon returning to work. He called me on that Monday in total disarray: "Its not working! I got fired from my job! I cant believe they just kicked me out!" and I responded: "Its working perfectly. It is a NEW job that you created and for that the old one has to be dropped". Of course he did get his new and much improved job a few weeks later, but being unfamiliar with rapid movement of energy it was nerve-wracking for him. I recall a woman I was coaching at that time who defined "rapid weight loss" has her primary intention. She wanted to lose 10 pounds over the three day workshop. And she did lose several pounds, but she suffered excruciating stomach cramps and diarrhea throughout the whole course. She left the course many pounds thinner but also exhausted. What was the mistake? Well first of all she could have added that her weight loss ought to be easy or a pleasant experience. But more importantly, she could have defined one month as a proper goal for 10 pounds, as not to overwhelm her body. Here's the deal: Spirit can process more than the mind, the mind can process more than the body. So spirit and mind may be ready for that radical and rapid change, but the physical universe, including your body and nervous system, may need a little more time. When you toy with the advanced techniques, you should be prepared for the fact that they work. And because they work, many shy away from using them, quickly retreating back into their familiar comfort-zones where no change occurs. So the manner in which I have modified my teachings is simply to allow change to be slower and more gentle. Incremental change is easier to deal with than radical revolutions and far-out miracles. Are there any exceptions to this rule? Of course there are. If you are a stable person with a firm footing in daily life reality, you can more easily deal with rapid change. Sudden reality shifts are possible, but not always desirable. Be careful what you wish for, it will come to be. Believing is Seeing Walking the streets of where I live I always encounter a couple who also live in the area. We stop and chat about this and that and then go our merry way. Sometimes we have lunch together. At one point I told them I was leaving for the United States in January 2012 and would live there for a year or so. It turned out that it was summer before I left to the U.S. But interestingly, from January on, the couple did not see me walking around those streets anymore. I saw them, but they did not see me. A few times I walked right past them and they did not see me. It was because they believed I was no longer in town. They were so very convinced that I no longer lived there that they no longer saw me. Belief powerfully filters perception. I have encountered this phenomenon many times. If you do not believe something or even consider it, you will not perceive it or opportunities that lead to it. That's why its good to give your mind real-life examples of what you would like to experience. If you can't present real examples of a reality to your mind, body and subconscious, you may not be able to experience it. Tuning your Frequency to the reality you prefer The reality you experience corresponds to the frequency you are attuned to. In any given situation you see other things than the person standing beside you because you are tuned in to a different energy-frequency. There is an objective reality, but which aspect or angle of it you notice is subjective. If you program your attention to look for danger, you will notice potential danger everywhere. If you program your attention to look for coins, you will notice anything resembling gold while you walk along the beach. What you notice or do not notice has a lot to do with your intention and beliefs. If you wish to notice everything or walk around in a state of heightened awareness, then its best to have zero beliefs and zero intentions. But if you want to find certain things, you simply program an intention and that will filter your perception to notice opportunities, paths and the intended item itself. If something keeps happening to you over and over again, its because you are radiating it, you are on a frequency conducive to it. For example you might keep finding fault with other people. In that case its time to take a good look at your own faults. If you go from room to room and you smell shit everywhere, maybe its because the shit is on your own nose and not at all "out there" or on other people. In many ways life is like a radio dial or a TV-Set. You can't possibly perceive or experience something if you are not tuned into that channel. Being "tuned in" to a channel means giving it proper time and attention to familiarize yourself with it, connect to it, become intimate and close to it, to understand it and know about it and doing just the opposite with realities you wish to dissolve - no longer juicing them, describing them, no longer learning about them or trying to push them away. Whatever you are attuned to you keep experiencing over and over and over again. If a year later you are experiencing the very same argument you had with a person, thats the moment you can admit and recognize that your frequency hasn't really changed in a certain aspect. If however a brand new type of conversation develops, you know its because you have become a different person. Humanity Subdued Humanity is mostly in a subdued state, enslaved by their own attachments and aversions. This process is expedited by the circus of mass-entertainment-media created for short attention-spans and to reinforce those attachments and aversions. My job as a life coach is to help the individual lift themselves up out of the tired world-mind. The main method of doing so is to overcome beliefs of lack and limitation. How? By letting go of the preoccupation with such. "Tell me what you lack and I can tell you what you are preoccupied with". How else? By helping people understand that effort is not an expending of energy but its collector. When you invest effort in anything at all, you are accumulating energy and strength, not depleting it. Depletion of energy comes from resistance, not effort. It is my job to help people create new realities. How? By teaching them the art of unwavering belief. Unwavering belief is high concentration and always influences physical reality.Subdued humanity must learn that sometimes more is achieved by spending days without a phone, computer or car and instead developing the powers of their mind. Another important thing to learn is that ones own capacity is subdued by complaining. All those daily complaints do nothing to elevate your energy. They make you smaller and smaller...until finally you become just as small as the people you are complaining about. I do the job that psychologists and priests are supposed to be doing but are limited in doing because they have often get caught up in abstraction. The psychologist is too focused on problems and the priest too focused on the afterlife to teach worldly success. Nevertheless there is no proper success coaching without a spiritual dimension. The more difficult you are to subdue and get down, the higher your level of consciousness. But even someone of high enthusiasm-for-life can be subdued with repeated disappointment, hardship and discouragement. Unless they make the firm intention never to allow opposition to exhaust them, never allow life to beat them down. If you make the intention to learn something new every day and never be content with the status quo , you have set your inner compass to go in the general upward direction for the rest of your life. Sometimes you think your windshield looks just fine...until the sun comes out and exposes all the dirt on it. Its similar with Awareness. When your awareness grows, the first thing you usually see is more darkness...but with that also the capacity to remove that darkness, to wipe the windshield. Thats why growth upwards may first be accompanied by difficulty before resting into a new plateau of ease. The Think-Big Technique The think-big-technique is an exercise in controlled megalomania. It is based on the precept that you magnetically attract into your life what you radiate outwards in thought, word and deed. I say "controlled megalomania" to separate it from delusional behavior or magical thinking. Use the technique in moderation to heighten your personal "vibratory frequency" but without the inner attachment/expectation of rapidly achieving whatever grandiose idea you envision. The idea behind this is "aim for the stars to reach the moon". If reaching the moon seems difficult, then aim for the stars and the moon will seem much easier to reach. The think-big-technique allows you to stretch your imagination for a brief period of time, before you rest it in everyday consciousness again. The reason it should be done in moderation (I use it once or twice a year) is because holding a level too high for too long (higher than your nervous system and belief-system can process in short-time) can cause backlash, strain and the typical "positive thinker" delusion that denies the yin-yang nature of everyday life. Its is better to scale yourself upwards from say, level 4 to level 8 slowly and gradually rather than try to shoot up all at once. The think-big-technique allows you to shoot up fro 4 to 8 instantly but also recommends that you dont try that too often but choose 4 to 5 or 4 to 6 instead. Once you are comfortable at level 7 you can and should of course aim for 8 frequently. I`ll give you a real-life example of how this works. A few years ago I put an ad in a glossy self-development magazine. I normally dont advertise at all, much less at the high price this newsstand magazine asked, but I was using the think-big-technique and that called for brand new action. In that ad, I said that I take $50 000 Dollars for one day of coaching. People who knew that back then I usually took between $400 and $800 for a day, thought I had gone "insane" . I did not get any responses to that ad (which had cost me $700), however, that one instance of thinking in much bigger dimensions that I had been used to magnetically attracted a whole host of other things. One of them was that one of the editors of the magazine noticed my add and asked if they could do an article and interview on me for their half a million readers. I guess that a coach/consultant asking $50 000 a session made an impression on him. In any case, my return was much higher than my investment of $700. Looking back today, I can honestly say that $50 000 does not feel "think big" anymore. That means my energy-frequency has reached a level regarding money in which that amount seems normal. If I'd do the same exercise again, I`ll have to ask $500 000 for a session for it to feel outrageous. You can always feel what your level of belief in something is by trying on a bigger one. And a bigger one and bigger one, until you reach your personal threshold of belief. The think-big-technique asks of you to exercise your mind to think, feel, see and act in more expanded, more confident, "highest version of you" terms. So in using the technique, choose to think and act-on something that assumes a far more bright and successful reality than your current status. Get outrageous. Enjoy it. And see what happens. Weightless Enthusiasm Weightless Enthusiasm does not come from what you are DOING. Its an inner attitude that grows with the releasing of resistance. You could be filling out tax-forms, painting the house or attending hard negotiations and still feel it. If you feel drained or burdened by the tasks and daily inconveniences of life, what is required of you is a shift in attitude. If you have not cultivated this attitude then it does not matter where you are, with who you are, where you are going and what you are doing. Much of anything will feel boring or burdensome after awhile. Sometimes, when I am called upon to do a difficult task I might start out with some resistance. After half an hour of grumbling the resistance might turn into acceptance. Another half an hour of the task and I might start singing and dancing while I do it. And another half an hour I might be enthusiastic at doing it and miss it if it stops. What happened? I went through a shift of attitude where I embraced what is at hand rather than denying it. "Yes, but I'd rather avoid these tasks altogether rather than trying to make them feel nice" many tell me. But that misses the whole point. You will be having less of those unwanted tasks once you have transcended your resistance. Its the resistance that keeps them stuck like glue, because resistance = extreme focus and magnetically attracts whatever it is you dislike. So what are some of the tasks you do on a regular basis that you dont like at all? If you know what they are, the next question is: How could you be in a state of weightless enthusiasm while doing them? Converting popular songs into intention-affirmations Repeating thoughts programs your mind to certain ideas, beliefs and emotions. Therefore every popular song that repeats refrains combined with melody acts as an affirmation that programs your reality. We often copy various songs and make them our own without even thinking about their contents. Of course we often do the same with beliefs we get from parents, friends and the media - simply accepting them without question. When I ride along in someones car its sometimes unpleasant to listen to the radio because I am actually aware of what is being said in the song lyrics. Within a recent 40 minute drive when a friend picked me up from the airport, the following themes were communicated (yes, I actually took notes): "I am so lonely, I need someone tonight or else I will die" "I am going to pop my fist into a police officers face" "I am going to get drunk and pass out" "I can never make up for what I did" "Why won't you call me" "Who knows what is what" "I cant take it anymore" Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't these thoughts sound like someone who is really depressed? With such negativity flying around and being soaked up unquestioningly, you wonder how anyone arrives home safe. Of course, ultimately, this is not the fault of the artists or broadcasters. They play what people want to identify with. Its just another reflection of this planets level of consciousness, not something to fight against. But for you personally, you can become immune to negative programming merely by being aware of the messages being conveyed. Is it my intention for today to pop my fist into a police officers face or to feel suicidal because another person does not call me? No thanks. Understanding the effect of sound, melody, emotion, refrain and verbalized thought you can make use of various popular songs and re-phrase them to match your intentions. When I do this I usually do it with refrains. So if someone is singing "I'm falling into a hole" I make that to be "I'm falling into the whole" and if someone sings "Who's gonna ride your wild horses?" becomes "I`m gonna ride some wild horses" and "I can't take it anymore" becomes "I can take more and more" and "I want it all" becomes "I have it all". Treat Reality like something you Desired To get what you want, first want what you get. Treat reality, treat what-is, treat what happens to you as if it were something you desired. This has extraordinary effects. Every time you negate your experience you pretend you did not want it, you pretend you did not - on some level - create it. This is how you slowly build up the belief that you do not create reality, that you have no influence on what happens to you. You gradually become powerless. "I don't like that this happened" you say, as if you had no part in it."This happened because...", "I don't want this at all...", "My life is not at all what I want, because....". With every "because" that tries to explain another cause than yourself, you move further away from the radical responsibility required for reality creating. But if you treat reality...and especially problems...that happen to you as if they are exactly what you desired, you reverse the flow of energy. Rather than being a victim of problems and letting them pressure you, you act as if you were their creator. Then one of three things happens: The problem simply dissolves, or it becomes an asset, or it becomes a solution for something else. One persons "problem" is another persons solution. If for instance you thought too much rain was a problem, ask the umbrella-salesman if he feels the same way. If you thought too much sun was a problem, ask the sunshade salesman if he feels the same way. When rain and sun are treated like something desired, you see the opportunity they pose. See your current situation as precisely the situation you wanted and enjoy it thoroughly. Make the very best of it. Because of your gratitude toward what-IS, even more fortunate events are on their way to you. Your future is determined by what you radiate today. If you radiate unhappiness with what-is. you attract more unhappiness for the future. From a higher perspective you really did want whatever it is you are experiencing these days. Accept it, experience it, embrace it and then you can either leave it behind you or take it to its next higher level. Treat your current partner like your dream-partner. Treat your current Business like your dream-Business. Treat your current health-situation like exactly what you wanted, treat your current location like your dream-location...and then these things will reveal their beauty. If they are good for you, requests come true Recently I was walking with someone who was taking pictures of nice architecture. Her battery was empty just in the instant that she wanted to capture the nicest building around. I asked her to hand me the camera. I made sure the battery really was empty and then put it into my pocket, and, as if I was a magician, half-jokingly saying: "Having it in my pocket will reload it". I also sent out a cosmic request. The thought went something like "Please help me and reload the battery". With no external sources of electricity whatsoever, the battery was working again when I checked 5 minutes later and she could proceed to take her pictures. So is that miraculous or is it simply some technical error of the camera? I dont know. All I know is that I regularly manifest-by-request, almost habitually, and have a hit-rate of about 80% when I am in a playful (non-needy) mood like I was that day. Putting all the thousands of books that exist on the subject aside for a moment, its actually really as simply as this: Step One: Make a Request. Thats it:-) Its as simple as that. You can request anything...better sleep, a lucky turn of events, a new car, meeting someone interesting, getting the means to do what you like, etc. There is no limit to what you request, there is only a limit to what will manifest. Who are you requesting towards? You are requesting towards the most high, the ultimate field, God, the cosmic force. You are relying on that which is primary, not that which is secondary. The reason you dont get everything you request or dont get it in the way or at the time you think its supposed to come is because it would not be good for you. Source is like a parent. If you are a parent you know that you will gladly grant your children their wishes, except for those that harm them. As much as your child would love to jump into the lake to play with the crocodile, as much as they believe that is exactly what the want , you are probably not going to allow it. You will allow the things that are good for the childs development. Likewise, Source has your best interests in mind when it responds to some requests and not to others. The more in-tune you are with yourself and reality, the more of your requests manifest.The further away you are from yourself, the less will manifest. In my opinion, if none of your requests manifest for you, you can assume that there is something protecting you from damage. Request and some of it will manifest. Send out many requests. Send out repeated requests. If a certain thing does not show up, send out a request for guidance on how it might show up or what is asked of you so that it shows up. Ive sent requests out since my childhood and if there is one thing I can say with certainty then its "They care and they are listening". You are Responsible for the Effort, not the Result Every new reality is crafted by investing energy/effort. Not over-effort, but just the right amount of investment. Put energy into something and you get a result back. Effort invested can take many shapes - gathering resources, studying, manual work, time, concentration, talk, thought, acting. The nugget of wisdom I wish to teach here is that you are responsible for the effort, not for the result. What does that mean and why do I say it? You focus attention on what you can control, rather than what you have no control of. You have full creative control of your efforts. That is under your jurisdiction. The statement helps you stop wasting your time with factors outside of your conscious and deliberate control. The connection between effort and result is not always apparent. You may have invested into A but received back from B. You may have worked many, many years on one thing, but reap rewards in an entirely different area. This is where it gets metaphysical: Energy is not linear and sometimes your investment into A gets you back rewards in B, C or E! The fallacy is to think that investing all of those hard efforts into A was for nothing. Metaphysics relates to the invisible forces shaping your reality and it pays off to know some spiritual-science if you wish to make sense of life. That means our efforts will always be rewarded - without exception, ever! - but that sometimes the reward comes from somewhere else than you think it "should". Case in point: I have been writing books for many years, but these books don't really make any money for me - at least not enough to survive. However, I am making plenty of money elsewhere. So normal thinking would say: "Then quit writing books and instead do more of what works!". But no, that is not how reality works. Would I quit following my Bliss by stopping to write books, the other sources of income - even if they have nothing to do with my books - would also decline. Why? Because joy generates energy and energy generates abundance. Optimism is not the result of abundance, abundance is the result of optimism. Its all an "energy thing". "You are responsible for effort, not for result" also releases you from the burden of being responsible for others. You can give your best efforts to others - if they don't return the favor, that is not your fault. You will be rewarded from elsewhere. "You are responsible for effort, not for result" teaches you the art of "letting go" - you do not "let go" of the effort, you "let go" of exaggerated attachment to the result, let go of the "how, when and where" of its manifestation and instead focus on what can be orchestrated today. Bad Childhood? No Problem. Quit Blaming the Past.g If you wish to succeed dont blame the past for what you are doing today. The past has nothing to do with it. Even if you had a bad childhood that does not have to translate into a bad life. In fact I learned more from my negative experiences than the positive ones. Without some of the negative experiences I had as a child I would have never grown as strong and competent as I feel today. When I was thirteen my mom threw away all of my books on religious grounds. She was having a strange religious phase and my many non-Christian books were apparently an impediment to her religious practice. One day I came home from playing soccer with friends and my five book racks (yes, I was an avid reader) were empty. I was furious with disappointment, anger and shock. It was a life-defining moment. On that day I felt the resolve to not only read an insane amount of books but also write them. "Nobody is going to stop me from reading anything and everything". And from that day on the amount I read tripled. By the time I was 16 years old I had read almost the entire local library...Science, Religion, Metaphysics, Politics, History. As it is almost impossible to read that much without feeling the urge to write I already began writing back then and havent stopped since. So you see that this supposed "negative" event helped me to become an author. Without that "negative" event, where would I be today? Maybe Id be a book-dispatcher instead of a book writer, who knows. Most "negative" events are blessings from above. As a child Ive broken my arm, my nose, my leg, bruised and wounded every part of my body in play. I loved to give everything in play and sports even if it meant taking painful lessons. Im very glad I did not have overprotective parents who worried about me having "negative" experiences. I always assured my parents "Dont worry about me. I`ll be fine". And I always was. The popular idea that a bad childhood automatically leads to a bad life is a falsehood. Its all about my reaction to events. I can take negative events to feel like a victim or I can use them to grow. How your life goes has more to do with the Education you receive as a child or the education you give yourself (through reading, for example) than with the specific events of your life. Event X only has power over you if you let it. If you dont let that Event (whatever negative event you think determines your destiny) control you it will have no meaning at all. Viewpoint Shifting If you indoctrinate someone into a certain view of the world, he will interpret ALL events from through those glasses and be unable to ever see anything else. If you want to predict what someones stance on any given topic will be all you have to know is his belief-system. If event X happens you could easily predict the stance any politican will have on it, for example. The reality-creator however, is unpredictable, flexible, able to occupy any viewpoint. He has fixed values and virtues but is also able to view things from other positions or from a neutral standpoint. In this way he learns more and sees more than everyone else. How so? Well, if you see the street only from the viewpoint of standing on your balcony, you will only see certain parts and aspects of the street. Looking at the same street from other viewpoints you find out more about it. The same principle applies to mental viewpoints: Opinions, Beliefs, Positions. Practically speaking the reality-creation-wizard would spend a few months or years with one position and "learn it" and then spend a few months with the opposite position and "learn that". And then he might choose a third position beyond the two. This would either be a balanced position or one that goes beyond the two. He would enjoy being rich and being poor, being fat and being thin, being free and being united, being up then being down, being left and being right, being small and being big, being in control and letting go and so on. Any aversion toward any position whatsoever is a limitation to a soul that is everything and all - infintely and eternal. Once one has owned all positions, at least mentally, one is not only beyond any conflict ("your position is wrong), beyond any limitation ("I am poor, I am not rich") but can easily choose which reality and which values are most preferred. Note: The souls ability to have, be and do anything it likes is interpreted by some people as "everything goes". But thats not what it means. Add to that "what you put out is what you get back" (law of attraction) and it should read "You can have, do, be anything you like as long as it is in respect of others and the world around you" (integrity). Subjective and Objective Reality Creation Your thoughts and beliefs are so powerful that they distort what you perceive. An example: Suppose someone you know enters the room and doesn’t say a word. Not a “hello”, not a nod, nothing. In that instant, your mind is creating several possible “meanings” his behavior could have. There is the objective reality of a person entering the room without speaking, but then there is the self-created, subjective reality of the meaning you ascribe to that event. And that subjective creation will determine what you perceive, what you feel and what you do. It is safe to say that your subjective creation of reality impacts at least 50% of what is happening. So you could give the following thoughts/meanings to this event: “He is angry at me, because I did wrong” “He is angry and needs help” “He is in a bad mood” “He is lost in thought” “He is very relaxed” “He is being playful” “He is meditating”. Regardless of the objective truth that he is experiencing, whatever belief or thought you project, will color whatever is happening. If you believe “He is angry because I did wrong” you will feel guilt, project that guilt-vibe onto him and he might start forming an opinion against you. If you believe “He is angry and needs help” you will develop compassion instead of fear and he might become responsive to your helping hand. The more optimistic among you will not automatically assume that he is “in a bad mood”. If you think “He is being contemplative” you will remain relaxed and might elicit a relaxed response from him. The belief you hold will also impact what decisions and actions you take, culminating in a whole chain of events from that point on. Reality is a mix of objective and subjective events and this information will help you regain 100% control of subjective events which in turn will give you a 50% handle over reality. That is more power than 90% of earth’s population who have not learned the art of reality creation. To help you discern between objective and subjective, let’s look at this example some more. Suppose he is really angry at you but you do not believe he is. You are sitting in your chair humorously and optimistically. Which reality will manifest? The answer is: A mix of both. By your radiation of humor his anger will be neutralized to some extent. If that radiation is very high it may neutralize his anger at you entirely. But if he is angry at you and you also feel guilty because you really did do something wrong, the consequence will likely be that he will express his full anger and you will feel your full guilt. If you objectively and really did something wrong, then it is quite appropriate that you feel guilty for the time being. But if you did not really do anything wrong that you would be aware of, then feeling guilt is based on what a “limiting belief”. What will happen if he is in a good mood but you label his silence as meaning “he is in a bad mood”? Well, that can lead to his view of you shifting for the worse. If you really did something wrong, then it would be a misuse of this teaching to “change your belief”. Let’s say you steal something from him and then change your belief into “Well, I didn’t actually steal anything from him” or “Stealing is OK, he deserves it”. That is nonsense because it devalues the existence of any objective, universal standard (namely that harming other humans is not good) and tries to impose a change of thought over an already-objective reality. “Limiting beliefs” in this case might be “I can never make it up to him” and “I am a loser for life”. Those can be changed so that your experience of him and the situation improves. So when working with beliefs it is helpful to discern between what is subjective and what is objective. Sadly, most books and programs on the subject fail to make this distinction thus creating confusion and a lack of grounding in reality. Frequency Matching If there is something bothering you that you have been unable to let go of by any other means, then" match its frequency", tune-in to what exactly it is. This has also been called "Being with what-is". It has also been referred to as "Confession", "Authenticity", "Being Real", "Identifying With...", "Merging With", "Becoming One With" and "Fully Feeling". When you match the energy of something, you regain control over it. Properly done it is a great, great relief. So if for example your spouse has been bothering you for a long time, it would be good to write out what exactly is bothering you about him/her to the fullest, without holding back, masking, ignoring or resisting any aspect of it. When you fully admit to what it is that is bothering you, the result may be shocking or really hateful, but it is better that comes to light than remains in the subconscious. Not wanting to admit to the sheer negativity of subconscious material is one of the reasons it stays subconscious. What is conscious can no longer dominate you. "Writing it all out", "Admitting to it all", etc. is one way of frequency matching. Another way of frequency matching is to mirror, imitate, emulate or copy whatever it is you are afraid of. I once helped someone who was afraid of spiders in this way. He was to be a spider, act out being a spider by crawling on the floor, feel as a spider, immerse himself into the spider world. Many layers of resistance were broken through before he could comfortably be a spider. Then, while being a spider, I pointed out another spider (making sure to transport one to the room before our session started). The phobic terror he had previously had, turned into a mere mild skepticism or distaste. He no longer had to leave the room when a spider was present. And while his dislike of spiders did not go away, the fear was swept away within a very short time, although he had been running around with it a whole lifetime. Just ONE confrontation with what-is can overcome a lifetime of avoidance. Another person was afraid of social gatherings, so we matched frequency by him mentally feeling and being various people at a social gathering and then creating and hosting a social gathering himself. Becoming the source of what he is afraid of ends him being its victim. At first he felt victim to social gatherings, now he was the source of a social gathering. Another way to handle this would have been to deliberately plunge himself into numerous social gatherings and notice their advantages, until he felt eager to be a part of them. Behind such fears there is often (but not always) the secret desire to be part of them. When problems remain and remain and remain, it is for two reasons: a) The have not been fully revealed c) What is wanted instead has not been fully focused on So if for example you and another keep having fights and arguments, you might say to me: "I have fully matched this anger and openly expressed everything I dislike about her! But we still have arguments every few days!" I will say that the anger was not fully matched or acknowledged. You may have expressed 80% of it, but if there is still 20% in the subconscious, there is no full frequency match. In the case of this person, what he was keeping in his subconscious was that he wanted to be angry at his spouse as an excuse to leave her because he was tired of her and wanted someone new. That was the 20% he was keeping hidden, But every time there was a fight with his spouse, he was expressing his anger at her faults, while keeping the root of the whole issue neatly tucked away. And so the issue perpetuated until one day he could have a divorce from her without even once acknowledging the true reason for the divorce. Once the frequency of something is "matched" and you fully acknowledge what-is, its time to shift focus to what is preferred, to the reality you want instead. Often this happens naturally as in "OK, whats next?". But if it doesn't happen naturally, then at some point there can be a deliberate shifting of attention to what you would like to experience instead. The instead-reality should be felt and experienced more strongly than the old reality. So if you made a full description of your anger, you make an even fuller written, verbal or visualized description of your peace. You then "match frequency" with your preferred reality. Reality Creating is nothing other than that. Once you can match your frequency to what you prefer and feel, think, speak, look, behave like it, you will easily attract it into your life. Manifesting a House If you wish to attract a new house by mind alone you're going to have to get away from the idea that manifesting a parking space or a dime is easier than manifesting a House. In the eyes of Infinity there is no difference. Enter the image of your perfect house in your Imagination. Walk around the House. Feel it. Touch it. Smell it. Let go of trying to get it. Let go of your wants. Enjoy the House. Let go of resenting your current living space. Be at peace. Later, throughout your days and weeks, dress and behave like someone already living in that house. Follow the leads you get. Request leads from the Universe. Be open for Miracles. Just because your life was a certain way for 10 years does not mean it has to be this and this way today. Say "Universe, thank you for giving me a lead today". And then watch what happens (Did you think this stuff is more complicated?). Most of you don't actually believe you can manifest a house with your mind alone, do you? Well, I believe so. But in case you dont you could at least trust that intensely Visualising a house will help you stay tuned to that goal and even attract beneficial circumstances as if by "luck". People always say to me: "Fred, you're so lucky". If only they knew that I have to Visualize up a storm for my "luck". Reality doesnt happen to you, it happens through you. Many years ago there was a woman called Sandra, who was in love with me. She wanted to manifest a House through Visualisation. But everytime I met her, the House hadnt manifefested yet. She had read books of mine, done all the techniques, had Visualized up a storm, sent prayer, acted-as-if-she is moving, gone to see many different Houses but still she did not find the House she likes, neither could she afford one. I started getting tired of her continued pleas for a new House. So one day I asked her: Do you believe that it will come true?" She assured me she does. I asked her a few more times that day and always she assured me that she believes in her Vision 100%. "Do you believe it will come true soon?". Again she assured me that it will manifest soon, that she holds "no doubt whatsoever". Knowing that she is madly in love with me, I then used a trick. I said to her: "The next time you see me will be in your new House". She didnt "get it" at first, so I became more specific: "You will not see me again unless you get that new House". "What???" she exclaimed. "You can't be serious!" "Why not? I am hoping that it will inspire you to manifest more quickly" I responded. I reaffirmed my new stance throughout the day and shortly thereafter she said to me: "Please, you can't do this to me. I will really miss you. This puts me under too much pressure." And I said: "Whats the problem? I thought you believe that your House will manifest soon?" In that instant she realized that she didnt really believe. Deep down she did not believe in its manifestation. She kept telling herself and others that she did believe, but it wasnt so. It is now a decade later and she does live in that House. Manifesting a Car A good friend of mine manifested his car through Visualisation. I didnt. I just went out and bought my car. However, he wanted a specific light-blue oldtimer that was not readily available and that would have been very costly had he gotten it through normal channels. The first thing he did was go out and by a toy-model of the car to demonstrate his intention to the Universe. And then he visualized the Car once a week, with 100% faith. He insisted it was his and it was on its way. After awhile he forgot about the whole thing. I noticed because he quit mentioning it and his toy-model was collecting dust. Then, one day, it must of been a year later, he met a man who was a car-dealer for old-timers. Out of the blue and unexpected. My friend immediately felt "zinged", intuitively knowing that this was the path to his new car. So he agreed to visit the guys caryard. And there it was, exactly as he had envisioned it. I have no idea what had gotten into the seller, but my friend got it for $ 1500 Dollars instead of the $20 000 Dollars that could have been asked for it. I knew thats what could have been asked for it, but my friend didnt know that was the expected price. Because he was naive, he did not believe in that limitation. And he got his car. For some, manifesting a car doesn't take a year, it takes a week. I recall how a student of mine visualized a car every day and a week later her daughter just bought her the car as a gift...without knowing that mommy was imagining it! You don't necessarily need money in order to get what you like. Focussing exclusively on money is a limitation. The belief that your car can only come through money is wrong. Goods can come from anywhere and at any time. Manifesting a Partner Romantic Love is a sign of Higher Consciousness. It means someone views a Relationship to another as something spiritual, something deeper, something more mysterious than mere chemical reactions. Romantic Love does not see the other person as a mere tool for sex or someone to marry for the sake of convention, but as the Spiritual Being they really are. One of the reasons a soul wants to come to earth is in order to have such an experience. A soul is born with almost complete amnesia of its existence as a soul. And finding a "soul mate" provides a moment of remembrance of that higher realm. Because like attracts like you won't find the ideal partner by neediness or longing. Thats the part popular music and movies got wrong. The often sung "I need you so" is a recipe for loneliness. The secret, is to Love Yourself. Not in the narcissistic sense but in the self-valuing sense. In loving yourself you become less dependent on others love. That makes you more attractive. Attractive in the true sense of the word, because once you love yourself you begin attracting love from all over the place. If you are truly content with yourself it is easy for you to love others. And in loving others and being kind and considerate, your energy-field expands more still. So to all who are running around wanting love: Give love first. Be love. The mirror does not smile before you smile. This energy called Love is the #1 solution to everything, the all-in-one package deal. Any problem happening is happening because somewhere there is a lack of love (Care, Attention, Kindness). When you love you turn enemies into assets. You turn problems into resources. You turn crisises into jumping ramps. In the process, clean up your place, clothes and act as if you are expecting a new partner to enter your life. Also get out of your house so that you meet people. But these are side-effects of feeling love. If you feel love, you tidy up naturally. You cant radiate one type of energy at one part of the day and expect another type of energy to flow back to you at another part of the day. The Universe is Holographic, where the way you go about little things is the way you go about big things and vice-versa. Therefore, loving the shop-clerk or driver in front of you or the way you wash the dishes has everything to do with whether you will attract your soulmate or not. A Partner Manifesting Technique a) Write a letter describing yourself to him/her. 10 Minutes. b) Now write a letter “from him/her” describing himself/herself to you. 10 Minutes. c) Visualize your preferred reality as if it were already real. 10 Minutes. Change the Movie of Everyday Life You can change the movie-reel anytime. For that you first have to break out of the daily Hypnosis and realize that your "day to day reality" is only a movie. It is a very realistic and three-dimensional one, but from the viewpoint of Infinite-Consciousness its only a movie nonetheless. Two ways to stop the movie are: 1. Breaking Routines 2. Meditation Those two stop the movie abruptly. You can then see that what you thought of as a continuum that has nothing to do with you is actually under your conscious control. When is the last time you abruptly stopped and dropped everything and just stood there in Silence, observing? Yesterday I stood in the kitchen, motionless, for 10 Minutes, just observing. If someone had seen me they probably would have said: "Just what do you think you're doing????" because the idea of stopping the movie is not well understood. After stopping the movie and thereby demonstrating that your life is not running on automatic but that reality can be determined by you, you can re-decide, re-intend, re-structure, re-create. Some, after stopping the movie enter the very same movie they stopped. Why? Because it feels the most familiar and safe. But much progress is possible if you decide to enter a different movie, a different attitude, a different Intention. And even if your surroundings still look the same, once your inner Intention has changed, you have entered a new timeline which will end up somewhere totally different than had you not made that Decision. Even if a ship makes only a very small change in Direction, in the long term that Ship will end up thousands of miles far away from where it would have without that slight change. Physicalize your New Reality Reality Creation is the Art of matching your energy-field (your thoughts, emotions and actions) with the energy-field of the Reality you wish to Create. You thereby attract what focus on, into your life. So if you wanted to attract money, you'd assume the energy-field of already being rich. If you wanted to attract health you'd practice already seeing yourself as healthy. If you wanted to find your ideal partner, you'd practice feeling like you are already in a relationship. You can only attract experiences into your life that you radiate. You cannot experience anything you don’t believe or feel. When you have a certain “feeling”, that means energy is radiating out of your body, mind and being, attracting whatever matches that feeling. Every reality you wish to have, has a certain “feeling”. Find out what it feels like to already have what you want, and it's yours! Creating Reality takes some practice because its the opposite of what the world teaches...namely that experiences create what you believe and feel. In Reality Creation you learn that what you feel and believe creates what you experience. So learning this skill requires plenty of reading books on it, plenty of visualizing, plenty of mental releasing of negative programming and plenty of prioritization. You prioritize what is important to you and you disregard what is not. Energy flows where your attention goes. Reality Creation is not something for an instant and quick-fix but a lifestyle, a philosophy of a lifetime, something you can cultivate and get better at over years. The „quick fix“ crowd is usually the crowd driven by a needy Ego that will most likely not achieve, not create, not reach. Why? Because neediness attracts more neediness. Feeling non-needy and at peace attracts prosperity. I'd now like to go one step further than Visualization I'd like to introduce a new word: Physicalization! This is the same thing as Visualization except that you actually act out and demonstrate what you would normally only be imagining. This quickens the manifestation of your goals and dreams. Other words for Physicalization are. Acting-it-Out Acting-As-If Make-Believe-Acting Pretend-Acting Charades Pantomime Acting-with-Expectation (of something coming true) Preparing for something (in the trust it will come true) So in applying Reality Creation to get Healthy would you... a) Read a Book on how to get Rich b) Read a Book by someone who is Rich c) Read a Book on how to Invest your Money d) Read a Book unrelated to Money …? This is a Quiz. Answer it before reading on. Answer a) is the most incorrect of all answers. If you were play-acting being rich you wouldn't read a book about it. You already are. Answer b) is a little better than a) because you can learn more from someone who is rich than from someone just writing about being rich. Answer c) is even better because if you already are rich you might be reading books on what to do with all your money! And answer d) is the best because if you were really rich above and beyond your wildest Imagination you may not care about money itself anymore but delve into other subjects. If you want to Physicalize a Partner for yourself, you would perhaps lay the table, put on candlelight and prepare for your love to join you every evening. And one day he or she will be sitting there. Sometimes it takes only a few days, sometimes it takes many years. But it does eventually come true...always! If you want to Physicalize become a movie-actor, you'd have to hang around where movie actors hang-around. Where do they hang-around. You don't know? Then find out! It's not helpful to state a goal if you don't actually want to enter the energy-field that contains the fulfillment of that goal. Being in New York, London or Los Angeles may be a good idea if you want to be an actor in Movie Productions. If you want to Physicalize good health because you are having issues with, let's say, your back and you are saying „I did not sign up for Yoga because I have issues with my back“, then maybe you should sign up for Yoga – thereby demonstrating your belief in betterment. I am not recommending you take risks with your health though – never overwhelm your threshold of believability. But do move closer to the wish-fullfilled. If you want to Physicalize that you can afford to go on vacation although today it does not look as if you could go on vacation, then start preparing for it. Get out your vacation clothes and pack them. Look for flights in the Internet. Look at pictures from your Destination. Tell people you are going to travel (unless these are people that will say „But you don't have the money to travel“ - in that case, keep your goal a secret). Behaving in this way, the means to travel will come to you. It's metaphysical law. So if you were looking for something to rely on in life, you can always rely on attractor-fields bringing back the overall result of what you put out! Default Creation Default Creation is the automatic creation based on the past. That means if you dont take a new stand or define a new set-point you will be repeating the past over and over and over. And even your greatest success strategies of the past can then become a block to an even greater future. From where you are now, there is already a future defined and determined for you, based upon your current vibration. Can you sense what future you will have if you dont change your energy, attitude or frequency? Yes you can. Its predictable. While you sit there, try to sense your future. I guarantee it will be more of the same. And for some people that's good, for others not. But all in all there wont be anything major happening because most of your life is running on default. So find something you would like to improve. And first move to a blank slate on that subject...a space of nothingness. To do that, we will first examine and copy the something-ness already there. Describe the truth of your situation bluntly. The unvarnished truth. Do not resist or ignore it, describe it. The first step of reality creation is getting in touch with reality. If you ignore reality there will be no reality creation. So you describe your issue fully and honestly in all its aspects. Once you circumscribe your topic thusly, once you re-create it exactly as it is, you are actually able to release it. What you replicate disappears. You accept that the topic is over, you let go of it and you abide in an empty space, a blank slate, a state of open awareness with no desires or resistances. Into this nothingness you mention and describe nothing of the past, but something brand new. This something-brand-new is not based on "getting rid of" or "pushing against" or "overcoming" the old reality. Because following such a motivation would only once again re-inforce the old reality. This is where so many get stuck. Its a new reality of which you make a mission statement, verbal declaration or write a letter of intent. A statement of intent or declaration is more than only a goal or new years resolution. It is a statement of how things are, not of how you wish things were or how they will be in the future. It is important that what you state and express allows you to already live this "future" today. If it is not something you can live today, you will not create a new reality. The shorthand version of what was just said is: 1. Fully Experience the Old Reality 2. Let Go and Fully go into Nothingness. 3. Make Up, Declare and Demonstrate a New Reality. Your default future is the future already set up for you due to the energy/frequency you are currently radiating. This is the future that, if you are totally honest and real, you know is going to develop in the next weeks and months. In most cases that future is not much different than the past because we mostly chose our energy/state based on data the mind has collected. The mind only has access to what it has recorded in this life and to nothing else. The soul on the other hand, has access to something other than recorded data from the past. To access the souls data you must relax down to a state beneath the surface-layer of normal everyday thoughts. And you must allow yourself to think thoughts you have never thought before. What is a place you have never been to before? What is a person you have never experienced before? What is a time outside of your lifetime? What is a planet outside of your planet? Such questions and hundreds of similar immediately put your attention to a place outside of the mind that has only recorded events of this life, this place, this time. Your default future will happen because you keep thinking, remembering and feeling similar to yesterday and the day before yesterday and so on. If you do not very much change your vibration your nice life or not-so-nice-life will stay pretty much the same. And you can actually sense this. You can sense your default future. If you are waiting for the big breakthrough or the big surprise or the big gift from the Universe, guess what: Its not going to happen TO you, its going to happen THROUGH you. There is nothing to wait for. If you are vibrating on a high level of energy, then it is THROUGH this energy that you will attract interesting things. Another way to say this is: Whatever is happening right now, in your current surroundings,, your current state, your current reality...thats pretty much all there is. That pretty much perfectly reflects your true vibration. You are not vibrating less or more than that. If you swiftly change your emotional state, that will reflect in a time-span from 3 days to a few months. More precisely: You should receive the first indicators of change within a few days but full manifestation can take months. If there is a lot of resistance it can take years. The art is to be able to maintain your belief in your new reality even though things still look like in the old reality. If you do not maintain the new energy, you will slip back into the pre-set, default future. What will your life be like in the next few weeks? Go ahead, sense it. You can. Stress and the Law of Attraction The other day I witnessed an acquaintance who was going to a job interview. She had apparently really wanted the job interview but she was very stressed about it. Everything I had told her about calm and poise was gone in an instant. So stressed was she that her entire field of perception contracted and she perceived nothing but her own thoughts. So stressed was she that she drove through the same radar-trap three times (!) amassing a massive speeding bill within only 20 minutes. Why did she drive through the same thing three times? Because she didnt know where she was going and was not paying attention. And the worse it got, the worse it got. When getting out of the car her jacket somehow got strangely tangled up in the seat. She tried to rip it out and the jacket tore apart, ruining her overall appearance for the job interview. I had not seen the phenomena of what I call narrowed attention in awhile, but this was a fantastic demonstration of that. She was sweating, cursing, complaining. Did she get the job? Most likely not. You attract what you radiate. Its as simple as that.Simple yes, easy not always. Opening your attention, opening up the contraction, relaxing deeply (while staying awake)...thats what its all about. On Pre-Coaching Success A strange phenomenon I have been noticing is that people who sign up for various Courses, such as the Reality Creation Course get their results or some results before the Course even starts – retrospectively so to speak. In the last Course I had a student who signed up with Relationship issues (dramatic break-up) that were all resolved (he found someone much better) before he even arrived. Something similar has happened with someone or other in every Course I've ever given. But why? Well, it has to do with the persons own level of expectation and with their commitment to change. By signing up for a Live Course, their level of expectation of what life is going to be changes. It is not only the Course that creates change but what a person expects to get out of it. By signing up to Coaching, the person makes a commitment to change. And often the commitment to change is enough to change. The sign-up is saying “Here, I am willing to invest time, attention and money to change this”. And then it does change. A similar phenomenon happens when someone signs up for one of my coachings and does not get his result in my coaching but a few days later elsewhere. For example one did a skype coaching session with me to release a knee-pain she was having since some time. She did not completely dissolve the knee-pain in the session itself, but what we did there paved the way for the manifestation of help. Only four days after the session she met a doctor. A week later this doctor treated her. A month later she was free from her knee problem and has stayed so ever since. Again it was the commitment to change that helped her. During the coaching session we set the strong intention to create relief for her knee and a month later that was manifest. Does it matter whether it was made manifest through a doctor? Not at all. She had seen other doctors before that and they had not helped her. This one could help her because her mind was properly aligned, The Universe delivers opportunity Non-Manifestation is just as much a teacher as Manifestation. I just got off the phone with someone who I had been working with for a month. His big goal was to get a professional soccer team involved in his mind-power products. Of Course thousands of people have similar intentions so "getting in" is quite the challenge. Various Visualisations were applied. And paths of opportunity did manifest...if only he had taken them! In a casual conversation with a stranger in a Cafe he revealed his intention to reach pro Sports teams. The person said "I can help you with that." He was some kind of sports agent affiliated with the local pro soccer team. Then and there they agreed that he would send the agent some of his material. But at the end of the conversation our reality-creator-in-practice forgot to ask for his email address or Business card. The Universe does deliver opportunity and unlikely "coincidence". But we do have to be on the ball enough to take those leads. Our reality-creator-in-practice did not resign himself with "opportunity missed", kept believing and just shortly thereafter he met a woman who also had personal relationships with executives of the Sports Club. This time he did get the Business Card. It remains to be seen whether his energy-field is strong enough to land a contract with that Pro Soccer Team. What he has experienced this month are the "Islands before the Land". Before something manifests fully, before Land is seen, pieces of land are seen. As a reality-creator do not mistake the islands for the mainland. That is, don't settle with less. Stop Watching TV, start creating Reality In some respects, watching TV is the opposite of creating reality. When you create a reality you pro-actively choose a mental image, focus on it, talk about it and then act on it. The investment of further thought, word and deed finally results manifestation. When watching TV you sit down and become passive. Your own creation of thoughts is replaced by the screen creating thoughts for you. You then have whatever thoughts the show is about. And because of the nature of entertainment, 75% of what is broadcast through the screen into your body, mind and subconscious, is negative. Anything can be a medicine or a poison, depending on the dose. A little bit of TV and Movie-Watching can be an inspiration, relaxation or motivation. But if you overdo it, it becomes a drug and then a poisonous drug. This is due to the hypnotic effects of rapid sight, sound and light. You can see this effect the best with children. They may have been engrossed in playing something but the moment the running TV catches their attention, they suddenly fall into a trance-like daze and immediately become inert. Television creates reality for you. And if you watch too much TV or Movies, it is because you have lost the power to create your own reality. It is because you have lost your energy and feel too exhausted to create. TV does not actually solve the problem of exhaustion. Most people actually believe that flopping on the couch after a “hard days work” is a form of “relaxation”. This may be true if done once in awhile, but it is certainly not true if done every day. What happens instead is that you train your body and mind to believe that the flickering screen is the source of relaxation or the source of certain joys. It then becomes habituated to the idea. But watching TV usually does not give you refreshment and energy. You`ll just become used to not exercising the power of your will. 10 Minutes of Meditation after work could have given you plenty of energy, more than any movie ever would. But then the next issue arises for so many people: “What should I do with all that energy?”. Not having anything worth living for, worth working towards, worth investing in, they then fall back on the pointless Internet-Surfing and TV-Watching. I don’t mean to moralize about TV. There is nothing wrong with it. It is the subtle addiction that is the culprit. As you probably know, with many people, one show turns into two, three, four, five…day by day. I know a lot of “retired” people who do nothing other than watch TV all day, vegetating in a chair until death. They have all the time in the world and can lazy around all day, but none of them are happy that way because they do not feel they are of any more value. I also know plenty of teens and twens who get extremely nervous when they do not have a screen in front of them for a few hours. Remove some peoples TV and Internet for a few days and they go crazy. Ask yourself: “Do I have TV, or does TV have me?”. Ask the same question about the Internet. And about anything else attention gets stuck to: Food, Drugs, Sex, Coffee, Tobacco, Alcohol and countless other things. “Do I have this, or does this have me?”. If you have it, you can turn it on and off any time. If it has you, you become so hypnotized that you have no control over it. If you find you have no control over it, you can regain control with Awareness. But how to be aware of unawareness? Well, in the cause of Internet-Addiction or Internet-Hypnosis, you could for example set an hourly alarm-clock to wake you out of your hypnosis. Your alarm clock rings and you ask yourself: “Where is my attention right now? Is that where I would like my attention to be? If so, fine. If not: Where would I like my attention to be now?” That’s only one example to re-condition yourself. Find your way to break your hypnosis and wake back up to life. Regaining control of your life is a matter of taking back your attention where it has gone on automatic too much for too long. Remember: The word “muse” means to think, contemplate, meditate, ponder. The word “amuse” indicates the opposite of that. Your Authority over Reality Whether your spoken word manifests or not is a matter of authority. Repeating an affirmation without authority has little effect. Repeating an affirmation with a great sense of authority has a great effect. It is not the affirmation that works magic, it is the person voicing it. Your authority depends on a number of factors. Most importantly the belief that you even have the right and fully deserve to voice and have what it is you are saying. If you value who you are and your word is congruent with your innermost beliefs and it is also believed that the creation benefits others in general, your word will have more power. If you can generate a sense of positive emotion in connection with voicing your statement, your word gains even more momentum. If you of general good standing in life...financially well-off, in good relationships to others, in a healthy physical state and with a wide variety of skills learned, you will sense even more self-respect and by that your word will have even more power. If the word you voice is something you would truly prefer to have and you have arrived at that goal after authentic and honest examination, that adds more power to your word. When you voice your affirmation, what is the tone of your voice? Who is voicing that? Which version of you is voicing that...the needy version of you, or the whole-and-complete version? Your voice and word have tremendous power when used properly. Your voice and word can destroy and they can create. Using your word to create is much more fun. Be the Cause of what you Want BE CAUSE. Be the Cause of what you want. Be the source of what you want. This is a reversal of the world-mind that is always wanting and seeking without giving anything. Causing others to have what you want is the fastest way of becoming Source. And when you're Source of something, you will easily create or attract it, because what goes around comes around. By principle of the holographic Universe, return does not need to come from the same place you invested into. Wanting Love? Extend it to someone first. Wanting Success? Find a way to make someone else more successful. Wanting Health? Tend to and care for someones physical betterment and recovery. Wanting Money? Give money to someone who needs and wants it. Wanting someones attention? Let go of waiting for it, and give your fullest attention to someone first. Whatever it is you want, you can have it, if you become the source of it. Here you have one of the great mysteries of mysteries revealed in an article on a website. Will you make any use of it? Let the Universe be Your Insurance Placing too much trust and reliance on Insurance indicates too little trust and reliance on life, energy, the Universe. No amount of Insurance can guarantee health, abundance or safety. I am not against Insurance, go ahead and get your Insurance. But don't make it what it is not. It's not the ultimate safety net against life. If you identify with the body as in "I am the body" you will never have safety. If on the other hand you identify with Awareness, which is Infinite and Eternal, you will have plenty of safety because you define yourself as that which cannot be corrupted, hurt, destroyed, broken. The world of form is limited in time and space. Find that which is unlimited and you will be safe. The best Insurance policy is the Universe. I did not have health-insurance for 15 years because I knew the Force would take care of my health and well-being. And it did. I only acquired health-insurance when the laws of the country I lived in required me to do so. Now I have health-insurance and it is OK that I do, but it is still not my main focal point of reliance. I have third party risk insurance but I hardly ever use it because there are many issues which can be handled person to person or even metaphysically. That is, if you are generally a person who radiates positive energy, you will get positive actions back. "For some strange reason" accidents never happen to me. The more fear you accumulate, the more insurance you need. The more love and joy you radiate, the less insurance you need. Reality Manifests when you follow through The term "follow through" means to bring something to an end, to complete, to finish, to go all the way. The term originates in sports such as baseball and golf where one has to swing the bat/club all the way through, even after the ball is already gone. Indeed, as if by some mysterious invisible force, the follow through after hitting the ball gives it more momentum. As already explained in the video Creating a Reality is a Decision, it is not good (for reality creating) to abort and contradict decisions half way, because it weakens the swing and does not allow for the energy of momentum to be built. Aborting decisions is exemplified in the following statements I have heard from a coachee of mine: "Well, I did some of the Bliss Course, but I wasnt really into it so I started the Matrix Energetics, which resonates more with me". One month later: "Oh yeah...well, I never did finish Matrix Energetics, but I am now getting to know EFT, which seems to be working better for me". I predict he is not going to follow through with EFT either. In fact, he has not been following through with anything...including his career project and an NGO he belonged to because not-following-through has become habitual to him. Manifesting results in life, as well as a solid sense of belonging, achievement and empowerment comes from staying loyal to a path you have decided to take. The person in question could get fantastic results from any of the methods mentioned above...my "Bliss Course", "Matrix Energetics" or EFT...if he followed through with any of them. Things get their power from you...from your dedicated and continued focus. You decide based on what you are drawn to, based on what you resonate with. Thats how you know which decisions are right-for-you. But then, once you follow a certain path, it is natural that various resistances and hurdles come up. Then saying "I no longer resonate with this" and aborting it at every tiny instance of discomfort is not beneficial. In most cases you ought to stick to it and complete it. You will grow stronger and your word-power, action-power and decision-power will grow stronger because your subconscious learns that once you make a decision, you follow through and it comes true. In fact, if you stick to a certain reality for a long time, it begins revealing aspects to it you have never dreamed of before in your wildest imagination. For instance, I have stayed loyal to a certain circle of people for 15 years now. I considered severing my connection to that group of people 7 years ago because I got bored by them. Instead I persevered and am now witnessing magical developments regarding the group. In another example, I have stayed loyal to reality-creation-coaching for 25 years although it did not generate any feedback, much less income for me in the first 5 years. Any reality you focus on long enough, reveals its magic and reveals that it is an aspect of Infinity and itself contains all there is to know about all-there-is (if that makes sense:-). This is as if every puzzle piece of reality contains the potential experiences of the entirety of reality. Relationships grow stronger over time if you persevere through "difficult times"and overcome the Egos resistances. Your professional position becomes stronger over time as you persevere through "difficult times" and overcome the Egos resistances. If there is anything worse than aborting decisions made, then its neither-aborting nor following through. Being in that vague undecided-zone. So when speaking of reality as energy and energetic momentum, following through is the best choice, aborting second and doing neither of the two third. When you follow through on some project, you accumulate space, time, matter, information and ideas around the thing you are focusing on. You would not be attracting those new ideas and that expertise around something if your attention were scattered and jumping from item to item. So indeed it is better to know little and practice much than to know much but practice little. And it were better you are able to do one thing fully than many things half-heartedly To control reality, first take control of yourself If you would like to control, change, reverse, influence reality you must first control, change, reverse or influence yourself. This is the primary rule of reality creation. It is a mistake to try to first change the external world, the circumstances, other people, others emotions, reactions, feelings, to try to gain favor with others, etc. No. The first solution is found in taking charge within yourself. Pick up an object in front of you. Thats how easy it is to take conscious and deliberate control of something. Now drop it. Now alter it somehow. You are currently fully in charge of the situation regarding that object. This rule applies to any situation at all. I recently helped a guy who was having enormous difficulty approaching a woman he liked. So I said to him: "Take control of yourself". "What do you mean?" he asked. "Do something deliberate. Breathe deliberately. Move deliberately. Ask to sit next to her. Let go of outcome dependency. Just let go of wanting a certain outcome, breathe that thought out. Thats how you take charge of your thinking. Smile without smiling. Thats a technique to give your face an interesting look...inside you smile and radiate humor, but you dont show the smile with your mouth. Become aware of your strengths, become aware of what you are confident and good at. And in this awareness and state, go approach her. Take charge of where the conversation therefore your and her attention goes. It doesnt matter what you do, say or what she supposedly expects of you. All woman...and all humans for that matter...like someone who is in control of themselves, feels at ease with themselves". He took charge of the situation, went to approach her....and they are now a couple! Another coachee found himself in a weak and tired state everyday and ask me what he could do. Same answer from me: Take control of yourself. Act deliberately. Put on some really, really good music in the morning when you wake up. The purpose of music is to transport your attention, your consciousness to a better place. Better than what? Better than what your mind creates at default. Take charge of your body movements and eating behavior. Take charge of your habits throughout the day. Bring more awareness into your day. Pinpoint what exactly it is you are having a problem with. By pinpointing, you put things into perspective and make things that seem big, smaller. Then define what you want instead. Take charge of your thinking and acting. He did so and was better instantly. Name any external reality you wish to change. And then assume that there is something within YOU that needs to change in order to align with that external change. I have found that this is the real key, the real secret, the thing that really works for anything. It of course requires that you stop being preoccupied with all the things you cannot control. Thats what disempowers you in the first place...all this thinking of things you can't control. If you keep examining what you can control and influence, your confidence just keeps on growing. You can control your thoughts, words and deeds. Of course changing words and deeds is a little easier than changing thoughts. The reason thoughts flow without interruption is because energy flows without interruption. But ultimately, changing thoughts and beliefs comes down to a choice. It is merely a choice to think one thing and not another. And that choice really is yours to a large extent. A little secret you need to know to take control of yourself and your life is that in reality, you have no obligations whatsoever. None. Zero. You have no Obligations toward your country, your family, your company, your spouse, your children....NONE. Please think about this for a moment. All Obligations you think you have, are artificial constructs. Now I am not implying you should go ballistic and shock your relatives and loved ones by suddenly breaking what they expect of you. You may have love toward them, and your love compels you to be with them as if you had Obligations. And that is great. On the other hand, it is very liberating inwardly to realize you have no real "musts". You may have preferences, but these preferences are not "musts" and "shoulds". The enjoyment of life recedes when there are too many things felt as "Must and Should": So if you stay with your spouse or your kids or your company or whatever, it is not because you MUST or SHOULD, it is because you CHOOSE to. Feel the difference. Its a big difference. "MUST and SHOULD" come from resistance, CHOICE comes from love. To control reality, first take control of yourself. Do not try changing the mirror first. 99% of a reality is manifest before you see it You cant fully rely on what you see and what realities are already created, because new realities are already underway and they can be fully created and ready-to-manifest before you even catch a glimpse of them. Realities are created on the non-physical plane and manifest to the physical plane. The non-physical plane makes up 99% of reality, the physical only 1%. Physical reality is like the outermost tip of a pen. It is not the whole of reality, only a tiny aspect. That’s why people who are solely focused on physical reality, solely focused on the visible, are hopelessly ignorant and disempowered. Every time I coach a student, all I have to do is remind them of the non-physical (spiritual) dimension to life, to re-empower them. I urge all readers to pay attention to their “inner state” more than outer circumstances, because ones state is more real than external circumstances. Those circumstances are the outside tip of the pen, but what about the rest of the pen? Many try to manifest new realities but give up prematurely if their desire is not quickly visible. That’s too bad, since it can already be 99% manifest before they even see it. Ive seen many give up at 99% because they don’t see evidence of it. Belief/Faith means to believe in the unseen, to believe in the not-yet-seen and thereby invite it into physical reality. This process is called reality creation. When a new reality manifests it first shows itself as a certain “vibe”, as certain feelings and emotions. It then manifests as information, “omens” and “coincidences”. Then, finally, it starts manifesting as physical, tangible reality. Another way of seeing this is: When a woman is pregnant, you cannot see the manifested child for 8 months. But just because you cant see it, does not mean its not there. With this in mind you realize that the source of everything is the non-physical. Do you think your job is the source of money? You're wrong. What we call "the field" or "the universe" or God is the source of ALL money. Thinking job is the source of money will keep you poor. If you have ever spent any time with rich people you know most of them see it this way. Do you think workout and dieting are the source of ideal weight? Dead wrong again. Those things can certainly help you achieve your goal, but they are not a primary source. There is only one primary source and that primary source is a non-physical, intangible force. Look at what you rely on for peace of mind, for relationship, for health, for money and for all else. Do you rely on that ultimate source of all things or do you rely mostly on secondary sources? Do you rely mostly on what your eyes can see...on the "already manifested", or do you rely on the unlimited source of abundance infinite and eternal? You are living a movie If Imagination really creates reality then wouldn't novelists manifest what they write about? Yes they would. And yes they do. But many are not consciously aware of it. And wouldn't filmmakers and actors manifest what they act out? Yes they would. And yes they do. But many are not consciously aware of it. When an author writes a novel of fiction, he is focusing attention-energy on an imagined reality. What you focus on deeply, you begin attracting into your life. The only thing that is keeping horror-novel author Stephen King from manifesting all the horrible things he writes about is his belief that "it's not real". But even so, his writing will have some effect on his everyday life. An interviewer once asked him "Do you believe in what you write?" and he answered "I believe in it while I write about it". So he has learned to compartmentalize what he visualizes into "only real while I am writing, otherwise not real". This is how he protects himself from those things manifesting in his life. Living a Novel Consider this story a reader sent to reality creation teacher Neville (from the book "The Law and the Promise", 1961):
One Spring, I completed a novelette, sold it and forgot it. Not until many long months later did I sit down and nervously compare some ‘facts’ in my fiction with some ‘facts’ in my life! Please read a brief outline of my created story. Then compare it with my personal experience.
“The heroine of my story took a vacation trip to Vermont. To the small city of Stowe, Vermont, to be exact. When she reached her destination she was faced with such unpleasant behavior on the part of her companion that she either had to continue her lifetime pattern of allowing another’s selfish demand dominate her or to break that pattern and leave. She broke it and returned to New York. When she returned (and the story continues) events took shape in a proposal of marriage which she happily accepted.
“For my part of this tale… as small events evolved… I began to remember the dictates of my own pen and in significant relationship. This is what happened to me! I received an invitation from a friend offering me a vacation at her summer place in Vermont. I accepted and was not startled, at first, when I learned her ‘summer place’ was in the city of Stowe. When I arrived, I found my hostess in such a highly nervous state I realized I was faced with either a wretched summer or the choice of ‘walking out’ on her. Never before in my life had I been strong enough to ignore what I thought were the claims of duty and friendship — but this time I did and without ceremony returned to New York. A few days after I returned to my home, I, too, received a proposal of marriage. But at this point fact and fiction parted. I refused the offer! I know, Neville, there is no such thing as fiction.”
Would it surprise you if I said that almost any event that has ever happened in History was first dreamed up in a book?Skype-Chat was visualized in the 1909 Novel "The Machine Stops" by M.E. Foster: "But it was fully fifteen seconds before the round plate that she held in her hands began to glow. A faint blue light shot across it, darkening to purple, and presently she could see the image of her son, who lived on the other side of the earth, and he could see her." Atomic Bombs (fell 1945) were visualized in the 1913 H.G. Wells Novel "The World Set Free": "Certainly it seems now that nothing could have been more obvious to the people of the earlier twentieth century than the rapidity with which war was becoming impossible. And as certainly they did not see it. They did not see it until the atomic bombs burst in their fumbling hands..." The 1898 novel "Futility, or the Wrecking of the Titan" visualized the sinking of the Titanic (1912) Credit cards were visualized in the 1887 book "Looking Backwards" by Edward Bellamy. Digital Media was visualized in Arthur C. Clarkes 1968 Book "2001: A Space Odyssey": One by one he would conjure up the world's major electronic papers... Switching to the display unit's short-term memory, he would hold the front page while he quickly searched the headlines and noted the items that interested him." I could go on and on. If a visualized reality doesn't manifest for the novelist, it manifests elsewhere. Anything that is put into the field through imagination, must manifest somewhere. I could make the controversial claim that filmmakers of horror and terror subconsciously want those things to manifest. And we who watch the movies are actually fascinated about such manifesting. We pay money at the movie theater or on netflix to see tragedy, violence, pain and suffering. We secretly can't get enough of it. And I am not pointing my fingers at others here, I have been fascinated by post-apocalyptic science-fiction since childhood. And that stems from the subconscious desire to be a hero who rises out of the ashes and persevere through challenges. In this world it can sometimes be a useful attitude to have. But having made this subconscious belief conscious within myself, I now make sure not to buy into such a scenario too intensely. Many people who dwell on doom, gloom and disaster secretly desire to manifest exactly that. If what I am saying is true, then a little bit of research should unveil how things that happen in the private lives of various novel writers and actors that are similar to what they wrote or acted out. The most extreme recent example that comes to mind is the actor Heath Ledger who committed suicide while playing the part of the "Joker" in the movie "The Dark Knight". When I first saw the movie I didn't know that Ledger had committed suicide. But I said: "Wow...his acting is so good that he must have really gone insane while shooting the movie". Later I learned of his suicide and was not surprised. He said to the press that his work for "The Dark Knight" had "taken a toll on my ability to sleep". He had impersonated something totally insane and evil. To do so he had to adopt the vibration of that, the belief in that. That state, fully occupied, makes it rather easy to ponder suicide. How could he have protected himself? By affirming the belief "It's not real, it's only a movie". The disadvantage: His acting wouldn't have been quite as convincing. Still convincing enough to make for good entertainment, but the movie would probably never have become one of the highest grossing movies of all time. He literally sacrificed his sanity and his life just to make a good movie. But there is another way he could have protected himself from the role: Through awareness. After movie-shooting was over he could have established a mental "Separator" between role and real life, rather than taking the bad energy into his private life. Someone playing a positive role, on the other hand, would not want such a separator. For example Leonardo Di Caprio, who usually plays roles of a guy surrounded by beautiful women is in real life continually in relationships with beautiful models. The effects of movies on Consciousness The purpose of watching a movie or tv-show is to change your state. Or what did you think the purpose was? Movies have the purpose to draw your attention in so that you temporarily lose yourself in another reality. This temporary shift of consciousness is enjoyable because you forget your regularly scheduled reality for a few hours. The danger here is of course that if you are not doing well in your normal reality you tend to become addicted and then spend too much time in those realities, indiscriminately watching one movie after another. This is not recommended for conscious reality creators. I´d never watch more than one or two movies a month because my real life is too full of beauty and I don't want my vibe distracted or interrupted from that. Of course, if your life is unbearably dull, then watching many movies can be shifting and uplifting. So the usefulness of movies depends on where you happen to be on the energy-levels scale. The effect of watching movies is not nearly as strong as writing stories or acting in them yourself. But it's there. Reality creators are typically reality sifters who are choosy about what they allow their ears to hear and eyes to see. I understand the appeal of "bad movies" and understand how movies that are all-positive and harmonious can be boring. But nonetheless it makes sense to limit your intake of dark and depressing movies, especially if you resonate with lower emotions. Not to get rid of them altogether - because you want to be familiar with the different energies out there - but not to make a hobby of them, so to speak. Whose story are you living? Everything you imagine, write and speak effects your day-to-day reality. Think, write and speak differently and you will experience something different. for people who do not like to mentally visualize, I recommend scripting. Scripting is to write down scripts or movie-scenes or entire novels of things you wouldnt mind experiencing. And the more you get into it and enjoy it, the more energy your thoughts carry and the more magically the influence what comes into your life.

He was one of the first teachers I read as a teenager. His teachings easily match what I have discovered as true in decades of research and experimentation. I will now introduce him to those of you who do not yet know him with a few quotes. “Man moves in a world that is nothing more or less than his consciousness objectified". “Assume the feeling of your wish fulfilled and observe the route that your attention follows.” “Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune. Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world. The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel to be true. Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious there is nothing impossible to man. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify. Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned, and a change of feeling is a change of pattern.” “Your consciousness is the only living reality, the eternal head of creation. That which you are conscious of being is the temporal body that you wear. To turn your attention from that which you are aware of being is to decapitate that body; but, just as a chicken or snake continues to jump and throb for a while after its head has been removed, likewise qualities and conditions appear to live for a while after your attention has been taken from them.” “Sleep conceals the creative act while the objective world reveals it. In sleep man impresses the subconscious with his conception of himself.” “I will be” is a confession that “I am not “ The Father's will is always “I AM.” Until you realize that YOU are the Father (there is only one I AM and your infinite self is that I AM), your will is always “I will be.” “Consciousness is the one and only reality, not figuratively but actually. This reality may for the sake of clarity be likened unto a stream which is divided into two parts, the conscious and the subconscious. In order to intelligently operate the law of consciousness it is necessary to understand the relationship between the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious is personal and selective; the subconscious is impersonal and non-selective. The conscious is the realm of effect; the subconscious is the realm of cause. These two aspects are the male and female divisions of consciousness. The conscious is male; the subconscious is female. The conscious generates ideas and impresses these ideas on the subconscious; the subconscious receives ideas and gives form and expression to them. By this law-first conceiving an idea and then impressing the idea conceived on the subconscious-all things evolve out of consciousness;” “For life makes no mistakes and always gives man that which man first gives himself.” “To be conscious of being poor while praying for riches is to be rewarded with that which you are conscious of being, namely, poverty. Prayers to be successful must be claimed and appropriated. Assume the positive consciousness of the thing desired.” “Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” You do not fight against your problem; your problem will only live as long as you are conscious of it. Take your attention away from your problem and the multitude of reasons why you cannot achieve your ideal. Concentrate your attention entirely upon the thing desired.” “Thomas, the doubter — when disciplined — would deny that sickness or anything else which was not in sympathy with the consciousness to which he belonged had any power to affect him.” “As John I can do nothing; but since all things are possible to God and God I know to be my consciousness of being, I can realize my desire in a little while. How my desire will be realized I do not (as John) know, but by the very law of my being I do know that it shall be.” For all Reality Creation practitioners Neville is a breathe of fresh air. If this article inspired you to read some of his works, all the better. Beginners Luck The term "Beginners Luck" exists in various languages to describe the odd phenomenon that novices have a disproportionate amount of success compared to experts in activities such as sports, stock market, gambling or manifesting desired outcomes. It has also been called "the first time effect". I myself have experienced "beginners luck" many times. About a decade ago I bent a spoon with my mind. That's how I know this telekinetic paranormal magic is actually real. The very first time I attempted to bend a spoon with my mind, it worked. And after that it never worked again! That had indeed been "beginners luck". I recall that the very first Seminar I held, at the age of 21, was one of the best I have ever held. Having no idea what I was doing, I was free to be spontaneous. I recall winning my very first game of chess against an expert player and not winning subsequent games. I propose that "beginners luck" is not actually "luck" in the sense of random happenstance. It has more to do with the old zen saying "beginners mind, open mind". A naive, unsullied, open, clear, unprejudiced, child-like mind is unburdened, has no pressures or expectations, no needs, wants, preferences or desires, no resistances, fears and worries. It is therefore receptive. Once you begin to "know" things about something, you begin collecting beliefs about it and those things you supposedly "know" about it limit the options you see and the choices you take. In an open minded state you may see an unlimited amount of possibilities, whereas a closed mind may only see a few. I have been teaching "manifesting techniques" for some time now. And I have noticed that often naive and child-like people have an easier time manifesting things out of thin air. Unburdened by intellectual reasoning, intelligent questioning and doubting, heavy memories of the past, they say "I would like to manifest X" and then "X" really manifests. This could be a house, a car, a job, a partner, an object, anything. Sometimes I have noticed that if they naively believe I can manifest something for them (and this belief is naive), then it will happen. If they naively believe that some higher power is manifesting stuff for them, it will happen. It will at least happen the first or the first few times it is tried out. But once the inner skeptic, the questioning and burdened mind start switching on and saying things like "How could this happen?" and "Thats Unbeleivable", the ability may go lost. Until one day when you dare to dream again, dare to try something fresh, new or "crazy". The sense of awe, wonder and mystery you had as a child can be somewhat regained so that you have a little more of a "beginners mind, open mind".

Wayne GretzkyWayne Gretzky is widely considered not only a good ice hockey player but the best ice hockey player of all time. Gretzky holds 61 ice hockey records. In Gretzkys own often quoted words: “We taped a lot of famous pictures on the locker-room door: Bobby Orr, Potvin, Beliveau, all holding the Stanley Cup. We’d stand back and look at them and envision ourselves doing it. I really believe if you can visualize yourself doing something, you can make that image come true . . . I must have rehearsed it ten thousand times. And when it came true it was like an electric jolt went up my spine.”
Will SmithAccording to Will Smith "Your thoughts and words have physical power"
Bill GatesBill Gates is rumored to have used the 19th Century reality creation book "The Master Key System" to practice visualization.
- Write down something you want (Define)
- Visualize it as real as your current surroundings (Focus)
- Feel enthusiasm and gratitude about having received (Activate)
- Trust as if it had already happened here and now (Release)
- Write down what you would be doing if it had already happened (Physicalize)
- Do these things (Physicalize)
These are results of the Visualization Experiment sent in by readers. This first one was sent in by Priya from Toronto:
Theo’s Visualization Experiment
I started my Visualization Experiment without knowing what item to visualize. I thougt about visualizing a new job. But because I already had an invitation for a job interview at that time, that item didnt feel right. It didn’t have the right energy. It took me about two day before I had the right item: I wanted to experience being/living/working/teaching/studying at an international wizard’s school (like in Harry Potter). That wish had a lot of positive and joyful energy in it.
For about ten days I visualized participating in different kind of daily activities and classes at this wzard’s school:
Visualizing items that I want to have: now - within this setting - it does feel right to visualize a new job.
Doing excercises in changing past experiences: it’s fun to notice that doing such excercises makes it’s easier / more effortless to do certain activities (in my past I have already done it, so now it’s easy to do it again).
Imagining being/living in this ‘wizard’reality makes it fun to work on changing reality ‘all the time’ (it’s allowed!!!)
After about ten days the whole experiment drifted somehow to the back of my mind. It was not something that I had to do. I only ‘worked’ on it every 3-4 days.
While I ‘live’ living/being at a wizard’s school visualizing more than one item doesn’t feel like cheating.
Some result’s so far:
‘School’ items are popping up: I met my old school teacher from about 45 years ago. Hadn’t seen him in 40 years or so.
I heard the name of a former class mate being being mentioned on the radio. Haven’t seen him for about 35 years or so.
In one week time I received three invitations for a job interview. And at least one of the jobs has an international character. Some of the work will be abroad
- Years ago I wanted to know more about NLP. I formulated it somehow like: "It would be nice if I could learn more about NLP", accompanied by a sense of wonder. Guess what: The next day I received an invition to take part in a basic NLP course.
- When my wife and I talked about getting children we were certain that we would like to have twins. We thought it would be wonderful to have twins. That was even before my wife was pregnant. Guess what: Our first children were twins!
1. I was out of money one day and my little boys ran out of diaper. I was so convinced and relaxed when I told my sister that i dont want money to buy diaper but i want diapers. The next morning, i saw a brand new pack of diaper with the exact size i needed and better brand, with slightly torn cover - which made it obvious that someone bought the wrong size and intentionally put it there at the lobby just beside the dustbin. I was stunned with my heart beating so fast despite feeling so convinced that it was meant for me. 2. Someone posted on facebook and suggested that mummies should bring their kids to watch Frozen at the cinema because it was so awesome. I remember simply and briefly feeling the desire and intent to bring my kids out. The next day, our neighbour who had never talked to us before suddenly knocked the door and handed to my partner 4 Frozen movie tickets. We had never gone to the cinema before as a family as we couldnt afford it. 3. I remember telling my partner how I wished someone has an iphone but not using it and would be willing to give it to me since it has been left to collect dust on the shelve. I had totally forgotten about that until i jokingly asked a friend to buy me an iphone. I was shocked but immediately receive it gratefully when she asked if i want to have her iphone that had been left to collect the dust. I'm using this iphone now. I also want to tell you one "crazy" thing i do: when i have a complex issue to solve, i would "call upon" 7 souls to sit around me for me to seek counsel. One of them is you. Thank you for being you. You are a great gift to the world. Sending love and light and all goodness to you". There are other "manifestations" on my list, but they are not for public view. Even after 25 years of teaching the power of Intention, I am still impressed and even surprised at the ease with which some things simply fall into ones lap. My theory on this is that things that manifest so easily, do so because one is "ready" for them. Whatever one is not "ready" for might take a little longer. The following report was sent by "Adbullah Almulla". The report was separated into a private section and a section for publication. That is the part I will paste into here. Other reports will, if and when they are sent to me, be published in a separate post."Here I will mention the intentions and which techniques I used for manifestations ( Most of them I am learning from RC which enables me to play with my own mixture through imagination, Silence and Asking). Also I include my own observation of each intention throughout the day, I took for each intention a day, two or three days to talk about it but I stopped writing down my observation on day 13. You will see why when you reach day 13.Intention 2- Using A French word I will get from someone near by me to use on very rare occasions (Action)Technique: Excitement about the idea + Paying attention to their words for few minutesObservation: a friend of mine speaks to me for the first time french (saying "Salut"), and I respond with a sentence in french and what amaze me is the accent speak sounds rather French. It was a rare occasion! Thinking about the situation and the night I spend with friends, It was really a one of a kind experiences!Intention 4- Being vegetarian for 10 days (Action)Technique: Past experience for being vegetarian for 30 days (Trust)Observation: I`ve done it, I had times that my body feelt weak and needing some meat, instead I ate more food than usual then I realized it is not good to fill up the stomach just to stop the body feeling weak (Killing the messenger) instead I listen to what it is needed and asked life to give me vegetarian alternative (Opening up to another intention).Intention 5- Taking my plan of the trip I am having from a lot of expectations and worries into getting into the unknown and trustingTechnique: Love + prayerObservation: Once I entered the placem all expectations and worries I had before I arrived, disappeared!

No need to mention any observation but to enjoy the magical manifestation and the magi of eternal flowing of any intention. I stopped because words start to become meaningless.Intention 14- To Discover hidden ability and sustain it (Experience)Technique: IntentionIntention 15- Today, I shall not judge ( Doing, Experiencing)Technique: “Today, I shall not judge” as a mantra, The art of Psychonavigation (From RealityCreation Article)Intention 16- What is there that I didn’t perceive before in those places ( I Picked some places, I visit every day) (Experience)Technique: Open question, A sense of explorationIntention 17- Being Alive (Experience)Technique: What is my intention for todayIntention 18- Meeting someone wise to share my issues withTechnique: A feeling comes to take an advice from someone wiseIntention 19- Accept all, Let it be (Living)Technique: Mantra for an hour while watching peopleIntention 20- Action without thinking (Doing)Technique: ImaginationIntention 21: - GratitudeTechnique: IntentionApplying this experiment, Made me notice that there is more than what seems to be and how things are created is tremendously magical. For a thought to be manifested is absolutely amazing! I had a sense of the flow of manifestation which made not much worried about manifesting the desire but rather to enjoy the process of the magical manifestation. I notice that I like to experience life more than doing or having, I don’t know why, but maybe because of the place, I am in right now.Thank you for making me a better personLove,Abdullah Almulla***This was sent in, asking to be published anonymously: 21 days manifestation- experiment These are my results of the 21 days manifestation experiment. I don’t write in detail about my intentions, but about my observations of this experiment. It was interesting to realize which kinds of intentions I have. Sometimes it was not easy to know exactly how I would like my reality to be or which option would be the best for the whole. So one of my strategies was, to reflect the day and ask myself, which occurrences I didn’t like during the day. I have realized which things were disturbing me. It could be some thoughts, beliefa I had about my reality or an emotion and behavior in a special situation. So I changed the belief in “I am grateful for the opposite event thought, belief, emotion or behavior.” These kinds of manifestations happened quite fast. It was like a little change in my psychic patterns, which were helpful to enjoy similar situations more. But what’s about bigger manifestation for the future? I don’t know why, but the most important things I didn’t write down. Maybe I wasn’t even conscious about some intentions I had. But still they were just in my unconscious mind and they had been already manifested. But my conscious mind didn’t believe in this kind of manifestation. I only knew that the best for me would be if…x happens. Because I could see very clear that the energy wants to flow in this direction. So it happened. One thing was about the conditions at which time and place I should do my final year of my school of pedagogy. I wanted to finish this school, so it was also my wish to find the most pleasant way. I was already trying to renew the fixed time, when I should do this. The woman already told me that it is no problem to renew, because I have to finish my studies first. But suddenly she told me that there is a flexible version, which could be interesting for me, but, which is not public and unknown by the most people. She told me, that I can split the year (I would have five years more time), that it doesn’t have to be a fulltime job, I can do it anywhere, that this work just has to do something with my profession and should be at least paid normally. Almost every condition she said was the opposite I was told before. The conditions before were, that I have to stay in the city I finished the school for one year as a fulltime job. So this changed law opens a more flexible future for me which just needs the right steps at the right time. So my next intention was, to know the right steps at the right time. Another conflict I had was also solved, but my conscious mind had no idea how to organize it. I was working with my friend on our intentions with healing methods. So this subject I had was solved at the same day. It was quite easy. The solution was so obvious, but I didn’t see it before. One intention I had was about improving a relationship to a person. I didn’t know if I should write it down or not. I even was not sure if it is good to intervene in these unharmonious energies, because I don’t see this person very often. But she is involved in my life indirectly. I thought that maybe this unharmonious relationship helps me to leave my home-city and find a community to live, because I can see that my home-city is maybe not the right place for me in this time of my life. But after a while I contacted this person. I surprised myself by writing a message to her. I realized that it is never wrong to clear a relationship. Her first reaction was positive and we agreed to meet. Two days I didn’t write any intention. I felt that I didn’t want to manifest new things, but work on the things which are already manifested. One day I just wrote down: “At the moment I have no special intention, because I’ve realized once again, that the things happen by themselves. Even if I do nothing, the best things happen to me. My unconscious intentions are sometimes the most powerful.” I also observed like Fred that manifestations, which have to do with the physical body need more time and maybe also more attention. I’ve learned how to alleviate physical pain in few seconds by intention. It is working very well if it is a small pain. But chronic issues need more time and attention in my case. So when I focus on a chronic complaint I find information, which might help. But I need to put more energy into it, to manifest the new desired reality. Other intentions I completed with the addition, that I want them to manifest at the right time, because I know that things happen very fast in my life and I have to filter out whether I want this experience now or some time later. This was sent in by "Theo": 21-day attraction and manifestation experiment. In the last hree weeks I made 21 intentions. After reading them back I noticed that some of them were the same. So actually I made some 15 really different intentions. One of them came half true: my son is getting a new phone, me not yet (at first I only wanted a new phone for my son, but the intention only really got energized when I decided that I wanted one too). Another intention was about a new job: I wanted to start at a certain company by March 1-st. Result was that I got an extra interview with the company I wanted to work for. But after the interview I decided that it was not the right place for me. I'm now clearer about what I really want in a job and now have applied for such a job: working for a Finnish organization. Another intention was about improving my Finnish. As a result I'm now back on track with learning the language. Although most of my intentions haven't come true yet, I feel that using this method (bringing attention on 'manifesting' on a daily basis, making it a daily routine) puts energy in the process and makes the realization of the intentions more easy, more automatic. This one was also sent anonymously. The initial note was "nothing of my list manifested". I include that here because it is important for readers to realize that "nothing manifested" can also happen. The writer then goes on to report a manifestation anyway.I did the 21 attraction/manifestation experiment in a separate list & none of the physical ones manifested to be honest :)BUT I'm addicted to making soft intentions & praying in writing now.. Last week, my iPhone headphones broke (AGAIN!) & i didn't want to buy another cheap one to break again in a few weeks! I wanted an original Apple headphones, went to Amazon & some reviews warned that it's fake & not real while others said it was fine.. I didn't want to risk paying for an original just to get a cheap imitation but I also didn't want to bother go out to an actual apple store (I don't know why I didn't think of ordering directly from Apple online!) I wrote down in my notebook that I appreciate my original Apple headphones & completely forgot about it.. I just wanted a headphone set, and instead got a brand new Gold iPhone 5s (with original Apple headphones obviously :D) My husband's old iPhone finally died, and he bought a new one for me & insisted to take mine which is as good as new!!!!!! I absolutely loved my old iPhone & I only wanted headphones.. I wasn't expecting I'll get one coming with a new phone as a gift!I'm starting to understand religious traditions in a new way:"If only you relied on Allah a true reliance, He would provide sustenance for you just as He does the birds: They fly out in the morning empty and return in the afternoon with full stomachs." - Prophet MuhammadSounds like the secret of the birds is that they never worry about "how?" they do what needs to be done with blind trust..***Sent from Katrin in Berlin: Hello Fred, this is my little report on the 21 Day Experiment. 1. I request improvement of my body feeling, walking and knees (I am numb/disabled from the torso downwards) 2. My relationship to my boyfriend is more loving with less arguments and more harmony This intention came true within the 21 Days:) 3. My relationship to Angelika and to my doctors is more harmonious, with less complaints and more communication I felt more loved and respected in these 21 days. Angelika even praised me :) 4. I practice love, gratitude and appreciation for myself, my physical condition and others I felt ore softness but also more anger and frustration. Didnt work. I will keep on practicing. 5. Keep my diet because I feel better that way. This worked 50%. I ate less and more consciously. 6. I practice courage toward others. This worked 80%. I confronted my boyfriend and the landlord. 7. Courage to walk longer distances and go on trips (in spite of my disability) This came true. I traveled 60 km far away from Berlin as well as to several parks and lakes. 8. My boyfriend has a new job by the end of February. He has become interested in a new job now and has a few options. 9. I have nice dreams and also healing lucid dreams. I did have several nice dreams after this, including a very memorable one of Italy. 10. I ask for divine guidance, protection and help in general so that I get better in every way. I injured my finger on the balcony door, it bleeded, but healed fairly quickly. 11. Thank you for new meaning to life and finding ideas, projects and tasks. Im still on this. 12. I notice new things and shows on TV This happened. 13. I practice less anger and frustration about my knees and just wish to be at peace. I have more trust and dont go to doctors quite as often. This was a good one. Improvement of 50%. 14. I learn new things. I did, for example I learned how to use a certain software. 15. More fun, joy, lightness and humor in my life. This all came true. I laughed more than usual and am very grateful. 16. Thank you for that wonderful phonecall with the woman from Ireland. 17. Thanks to my boyfriend for how he played the piano 18. Thank you 19. Thank You 20. Thank You 21. Thank You for the 21 Day Experiment. LOA Works. Not every intention manifests, but most do and a lot of things turned to the better, in spite of smaller backlashes and things that didnt work. The 21 Day experiment uplifted me, protected me, guided me and was full of magic. I rarely laughed so often...loudly and silently in my heart. I am going to do another 21 Days in March! *** This one is another "I had no results" report. Why do I post these? Because its important to hear from real-life people rather than some marketing-hyped illusion. If only one of these many so-called "law of attraction coaches" published a "it didnt work" Testimonial, the world would be so much more real. Good results are not achieved by denying no-results. 21 Day Attraction & Manifestation Experiment Results Hello and greetings from Helsinki, Finland! I wrote down one intention every evening and then forgot about it. I didn't visualize, I didn't force myself to feel anything extra while writing, I just thought of what I would delight in and then wrote it down. I chose things that seemed out of my reach ("I get to visit Iceland in March") and things that felt completely within my personal realms of possibility ("I find the perfect birthday present for my niece" and "Someone gives me a nice compliment"). After 21 days... Only one intention manifested. One. My niece will indeed get a perfect present on her birthday. Needless to say, I was and still am very disappointed. I've had some success with RC in the past so I'm one of the believers but... guess things just weren't meant to be this time or my "goodies" are still on the way and yours truly only needs to be patient and positive. Best regards, Riikka Editors Note: The fact of "disappointment" shows that there was too much attachment to the intentions to begin with. Where there is no attachment, there is no disappointment. I realize thats easier said than done:-) This was sent in by Catherine: I realized one manifestation on my list, and it was very big! I am very happy.I wanted to be accepted into the local artists guild which is juried. I went to a meeting many weeks ago to get advice on what the jury wants for images and the artist's statement. I was the least experienced person there. I have not shown my work in any show or galleries as the other artist's had done. I had to do a LOT of releasing on this.I was accepted!I manifested 3 other things that were not on my list.I am doing a study on crows and they are difficult to photograph. Two days ago I photographed 2 crows fairly close while on my walk. Totally unexpected and delightful.I have visions of artwork involving layering photographs. I am fairly low tech and have resisted buying photoshop. I relented and was looking for a class that taught photoshop nearby. I was visiting a friend and talking about photography and she told me about lynda.com. I can learn photoshop from my home for $25 dollars a month!!!! No need to drive 20 minutes to a class once a week for 8 weeks.I need to frame my photos and the first round was very expensive. The same friend who told me about Lynda.com introduced me to several online resources for frames and mats at very good prices.So it seems the universe is providing me with things I am excited about and meant to do.*** This was sent in by Monica: My 21-Days-Wishfullfilling-Experiment I wrote down 18 wishes, three wishes I only thought of. All small wishes like „I'd like new good and soft writing pens“ or „I wish an extraordinarily good looking Diary“ came true within only a few hours! Some big wishes had no fulfilling date – and so they didn’t come true. But instead: They still vibrate in a field of Positivity ...! About 50 % of bigger wishes came true: I found 3 (!!) new clients, got a huge new vision for my life (which spends lots of enthusiasm and new fresh energy!!) and created a new book project with title and timeline ... And this is my real success in participating in this experiment:
- Writing half a page
- Reading for an hour
- Do one thing as being self employed for the website am doing
- One mussel exercise for 2- 3 minutes
This was sent in by Bernadette:Your message: 21 day manifestation experimentHi Fred, I have participated in a few of your past experiments, but this time I thought I should send in my report. It can be published with my name, but no email address. I didn’t write down one intention every day (I somehow got this wrong from the start), but rather whenever something came up. It turned out that I actually wrote down 21 intentions over the course of the 21 days. I intended for small things and big things, for me and for others. After writing them down, I practiced “letting go” on the intentions, I did nothing else to re-enforce them. The first three small ones were of the kind “X is healthy and in good shape”, because those people were having the flu and feeling bad. They all got well within a few days – I don’t know whether this counts, though, they weren’t terminally ill or something, just the flu… The next two, also small, were “I get X for less than Y Euros”, because two household devices I absolutely can’t go without broke down, but money is still something I struggle with, so they had to be really affordable. Both devices were replaced on the same day at a price lower than what I specified. Then I intended for hearing a delightfully funny joke, I hadn’t heard before, and having a pleasant experience with a person I don’t know yet. Both came true within a few days. I also intended for having a lucid dream. I had the strangest and scariest, most intense and yet uplifting dream I ever had, followed by a nightly series of different funny and vivid dreams. I don’t know if they count as lucid, because while I was somehow aware that I’m dreaming, I just played along and didn’t try to intervene with the story. As I mentioned above, money is a topic I struggle with. Therefore several of the intentions involved my financial situation to improve ("get X Euros by [date]", "earn Y Euros a month", etc.). It did not improve immediately, but through meditation, I gained a few useful insights on why I’m struggling and during the past ten days I had more orders from my clients than at any one time before. Therefore, I’d say, this one came true as well. A big one was: “X finds a publisher for his boardgame”. Last week-end X attended a boardgame developer conference and three major publishing houses were delighted by the game and are currently reviewing prototypes. There’s no contract yet, but it’s very likely, one of them will publish it. What didn’t come true yet is “I finish the first draft of my new novel by Easter”, but it’s more of a goal anyway. So far, I’m on schedule to meet this goal, so it may very well come true. What also didn’t come true is: “I lose weight effortlessly until I reach my ideal weight”. Nothing happened. I neither lost nor gained weight. It’s no surprise though, as I currently can’t let go of the issue. Another rather big one, as this person was very dear to me: “I receive word from X and revive our friendship from years ago” did not come true. Yet. After our car had to be fixed several times over the past months I wrote down: “our car feels good and functions perfectly fine”. So far, no more problems, but it was only one week since that intention was phrased... I also intended for more clarity, guidance and love. All these aspects improved. To sum it up: All the small intentions (8) came true, the intentions involving my financial situation (3) have created some improvements, the big intentions (4) did not or not yet come true except for the one I didn’t intend for myself, intentions regarding weight loss (2) did not come true, intentions towards personal improvement (3) came true and the car is also fine. :) Thank you for this very interesting experiment! Personally, I learnt one thing in particular: To intend more consciously, for small and big things alike, and write it down, as one may be pleasantly surprised by how many intentions do come true. All the Best, Bernadette ***This was sent in by Florian: Ironically, the 21 day manifestation experiment felt like the manifestation of one of my intentions.A few weeks before the original post was published on your blog, I talked to a friend of mine, who convinced me, to restart writing a daily intention list. So in a sense, I started the intention experiment earlier, and in a somewhat different form. Normaly I’d write down 5 Intentions every day. The internal result of this was, that with every day of writing, my vision/goals became more detailed and clearer. Sometimes I’d just write down the same intentions, some days I’d add new ones or modify them, because I realized, I forgot an important detail, or I found a way, to write the intention in a more elegant or meaningful way.“I’m a sought-after coach.”The result of this focus of attention was, that lots of people started getting really interested about what I had to say about personal development. During the past weeks I explained metaphysical concepts to lots of people. I also got asked by an acquaintance of mine to start a coaching project at my university.“I experience magical synchronicities every day, that show me, that I’m on the right track.”I have this kind of meaningful synchronicities now 3-5 times per day. It could be that I think of a friend of mine, that I haven’t seen in a long time, and I run into him or her later that day, in a totally unexpected place. It also happens a lot that I talk about a topic and then meet people that are interested in the same topics. I recently met a girl for the first time, and I felt the urge to ask her, whether she likes a certain Japanese book author. It turns out she writes her thesis about this authors work! A couple of days ago, I sat together with the owner of a sportsclub that I frequent, and he talked about how he likes the work of C. G. Jung. Jung is the one who coined the term synchronicity! I immediately asked whether he believed in synchronicities and he confirmed that he believes in it.Another synchronicity was related to my intention “I live my life in the flow-state.” One synchronicity was, that there was an article published on the very same topic on the reality creation website a few days after I wrote down this intention. During the same time I sat in the library, and noticed, that the girl next to me read a book about the Flow state. In the next days, I was talking to a stranger that I just met, and he told me that he’s about to write his thesis about the flow state during sports competition. Besides those synchronicities I got the result of experiencing this state of effortless and joyful concentration a lot more in the past weeks.“I feel great energy, and high states of consciousness.” This intention attracted me to some resources that showed me very effective meditation techniques. I also experience random outburst of euphoria and light states of being more often now.“I have an easy time meeting beautiful girls” This intention resulted in getting to know a guy better, that just got recently single and wanted to improve his dating skills. We managed to meet lots of people and inspire each other a lot, so that we in fact talked to a lot more girls then we had before. He also shared lots of stories from one of his friends who is very successful with dating women, something that inspired me even further.I also wrote down that I ace my final exams. Even though I was under a lot of time pressure, and learned for a substantially shorter period of time than my peers, I got 3 A’s.In retrospect I really liked the experience I made so far, and I don’t see it as a temporary experiment, but more as a lifestyle change. For the past 5 weeks I wrote down my intentions every morning for 15 minutes and I will continue to do so, simply to keep the momentum.I’d say roughly half of my intentions manifested, or showed clear signs of being on the way of full manifestation.I benefited from doing this intention list in numerous ways. First, there’s the obvious manifestation of stuff. But also getting clearer about my goals and being able to articulate them better is a very good side effect as well. The third, and most important thing for me was, that it strengthened my trust in the universe and my creative abilities. To solidify this experience, I also wrote down the statement “I am an effective reality creator” everyday.I received this email from Julie (scorpioviking (at) msn.com):Wanted to share a recent powerful reality creation with you. I was listening to one of your podcasts about setting the table for two if you want a relationship and acting "as if." I'm a singer and a songwriter, and I wanted another musician to come into my life to help me arrange and record my music. I specifically was looking for a guitar player because I play the keyboard, so looking for someone to round out the music. After hearing your podcast, I put an additional stool next to my keyboard and put a guitar pick right in the center of it. Then I said to the universe, "this spot is for the right person to come into my life to help me with my music, ideally a guitar player, but I'm open to what is best at this time." In THREE days, someone contacted me off the band website I was listed on. Other people and bands had contacted me, but this guy was different. His e-mail resonated with exactly what I was looking for. Interesting--he plays the drums, piano AND the guitar. He's also been in the music industry for more than 30 years, and he has a number of recorded albums and many songs on iTunes (another goal of mine, to have my music there). On our first meeting, he brought me a CD of band he likes. I took it home and took the lyrics off one of the songs, then re-recorded my own vocals over it and sent to him so he could hear my voice. We had a few phone discussions and he said he had some extra gear at his house and asked if he could bring it over. A few days later he brought everything I needed to have a small, high quality recording studio in my house--thousands of dollars of gear all without any cost to me. More surprisingly, most of what he brought was new, in the box--he had actually purchased it for me. I was so shocked that I cried, but then of course remembered I had asked for it, so took a moment to be very grateful. I've since started recording my music--I send it to him and he ads the extra instrumentals and helps with the arrangements. I've also recorded some vocals for his music. An unexpected bonus--he has dozens of friends who are musicians, so if we get to a point where we want to play live, he'll help put a band together. Everything is just getting started, but this is 1000 times more than I ever imagined! Thanks for all of your techniques--this is only one of many extraordinary things that I've been able to create since being introduced to your work, but this was one of the fastest and best I've experienced. All the best! Julie *** This Experiment was put up in September 2014: The Physicalization Experiment"Physicalization" is the word I use to describe physically acting out a desired reality. It is derived from "Visualization" which is mentally acting out a desired reality. As told in my books I have used the method on countless successful manifestations. In my twenties, when I wanted to manifest a partner, I simply acted out having one. I would set the table for two, hold her hands, brush them through her hair, buy her perfume, have talks with her, kiss her goodnight - all before she had even entered my life! The key was to make it as real as possible before it was real. So when I kissed her goodnight, I actually extended a physical kiss into the pillow, as if the pillow were her head, gently holding the pillow as such. When you use this method you have to go through the motions like you would really be if it were real. My success rate with this method has been around 80%. Why does it work so well? Because you can only energetically attract what you are already experiencing. You get more and more of what you already are. Many years before I gave seminars in front of groups, I pretend-acted doing so. Many years before I had my first book published, I bought one of those empty scrap-books and put a title, my author name and a publishers name on it - acting as if that were my finished book. I have applied acting-as-if or "Physicalizing" on health-issues, romance-issues and career-issues. I haven't used the technique in a long time and will therefore conduct a 8-day experiment with it as follows: 1. I will choose something I want to create as reality 2. I will write down a few typical motions or actions that go along with already experiencing it 3. I will act out those motions for five to fifteen minutes a day for 5 days. 4. At the end of the 5 days, I will let go for three days and do nothing. Then I will take stock of what manifested as a result of my work. 5. Finally, I will write a report on my intended reality and manifested reality and publish it here. If you would like to join me in this experiment, you are very welcome to. In that case, do the same and report back on what happened. Please note that the actions in this technique are not actions-towards but actions-as-if. During this week you should try to reduce actions-towards the goal and increase actions-from the goal, things you would be doing if it were already achieved. If you participate, I`d appreciate if you send in your report regardless of whether the experiment failed or succeeded. This is needed to keep things REAL. Happy Reality Creating! ***This was one of the results of the Experiment: My goal was to make use of realitycreation.net (note: no longer in operation) a Domain that had been dormant for over three years. But I didn't know what to do with it. So my "physicalizing" consisted of logging into it and trying out different things every day. I tried out a shop, but that didn't inspire. Then I tried a chatroom, but it didn't work properly. Faithful to my "acting as if" I spent about 1 hour working on it every day, regardless. Normally, if I don't know what to do with a domain, I leave it alone. But because I was "physicalizing" I determined to act-out "creating a new website" everyday, trying all kinds of things. Then, on the fourth night of the Experiment, I had a vivid dream about making a Discussion Forum. It was as if the inspiration for it was "Downloaded" into my mind. I saw all sorts of members and screennames and activities. When I woke up, I knew that's what the Domain would be. But I had never built a discussion forum before and didn't know whether I had the skill. Being on the 5th day of Physicalizing, I simply pretended to have the skill and just starting making it, using plenty of tools that don't require coding knowledge. These were, of course, readily found and available. It was amazing how smoothly and naturally it all went, as if it were predestined. I had the site up within 2 days. This may seem like "no big deal" to an outside observer, but it is for me. Just a week ago I had a dormant domain and no clue what to do with it, no knowledge of forum building whatsoever (assuming its "complicated" and "difficult", which it isn't). Now, one week later it's a reality. In other words: Pretending to have a skill facilitates becoming skilled. I at first wanted to post some of other peoples Experiment results here, but I have in fact opened a thread for it in the Forum. Now you can post your results yourself here: Results of Reality Creation Experiments (note: This website and the link are no longer in operation). *** Here's an inspiring email I received the other day. I thought it would also be inspiring to readers of this site. Real names and locations have been removed (****) to protect the persons privacy. The person writing this, approached me for a "Skype Coaching" with fears of bankruptcy, being deported from the country she lived in and pondering suicide. A week after our session there was no more talk of suicide, there was this: Hi Fred, I would like to share with you some pretty amazing changes that I've experienced following our session. Right after the session, I felt peace and calm. The strong inner turmoil I was feeling prior to the session lessened a lot. I felt okay. That alone is a big payoff. The following Monday I went to ***** for a meeting as I mentioned to you. I was anticipating conflict and hardship, but none of that happened. The meeting went smoothly and clearly, and I received a compliment that I am very beautiful. My feeling of confidence increased. The next day, I went to ***** to attend a very prestigious forum called ***** that fosters ***** *****. The forum has a program for young leaders with extraordinary potential. I had applied to that program and a few days before our session, I received an acceptance letter from them and an invitation to attend the **** event. I went, while identifying as much as possible with my preferred self that you helped me embrace. The speakers were heads of states, ambassadors, heads of world organizations (**** ***** ****). While my old self would have sit there feeling small and keeping quiet, then guilty for not making the best of the opportunity, my new self simply participated in the discussions when I felt I had something valuable to contribute, without forcing anything or trying to impress. Suddenly, I started attracting positive attention. Many dignitaries came to compliment me directly for the quality of my participation and even for my looks, and provided business cards. At the end of the event, the president of the forum, who has close relationships with many decision makers at the highest level around the world, came to announce that he will help me get ahead in my career. I didn't even ask! He also said out loud that my friend (another participant) and I were the stars of the event. Attached is a picture of me receiving my nomination from **** in ****. The smiling lady behind is the head of ****. And guess what? My nomination as a leader (among ****) was covered by all major ****, **** and **** news sites in ****. Suddenly I found myself being in the news! I can't tell you how proud my parents are. I attached a newspaper article from a prominent **** daily paper for your reference. Today, I received an invitation from the **** embassy in **** to attend an event about women leaders. I could go on and on. You get the point. My reality is shifting to blessings beyond my wildest dreams. And while I haven't resolved yet the visa situation, I feel confident that the right circumstances are unfolding. I will keep you posted! I will forever be grateful to you for shining your light and love over me so that I shift my self-image, and hence experience the wonderful reality that results from a new identity. Thank you thank you thank you! *** This Experiment was put up in August 2015: The Retro-Reality-Creation Experiment Can you change the past by thinking differently of or about it? And does this change your present time circumstances? We all do this anyway to some extent. Depending on our mood we emphasize either good or bad memories or put some "spin" on those memories to make them more emotional. Negatively inclined people exaggerate their bad memories, positive people exaggerate their good memories. But what about taking this one step further and changing your memories altogether? What if our present time reality is much more rooted in what we imagined it to be, than we think? In my book “Parallel Universes of Self” I say you can do that with positive effects and I call it “Retro Reality Creation”. If you think the idea is crazy, consider the following news article: Science Experiment shows that what happens in the future, determines the past Starting today I will experiment with this idea a little more deeply. You see, it is such an unusual idea that not even I (who teaches this stuff) use it frequently. Every evening for the next 5 days I will review the events of the day. If there was an event that was not to my liking or somehow not ideal, I will “rewrite” or "revise" it with my Imagination. For instance, if I received a phone call I didn’t like, I will re-hear that phone call and have the person speak the words I prefer. If there was a behaviour of mine that was less than joyful or loving, I will imagine myself behave differently. If there was some complaint about something, I will imagine appreciation instead. I will mostly do this mentally, sometimes I may do it in writing. At the end of the 5 days I will wait another 3 days before writing a report on what happened and then publishing it here. I will note whether the act of changing my thoughts about the past appeared to change what happens in the ongoing present and whether my overall daily life improved significantly. I invite you, dear reader, to participate in this Experiment too. The more people experiment and share their reports, the more awareness we can gain on the subject. Go ahead and take some time every day to review your day and then use your Imagination to revise various events to your liking. Do so consistently for 5 days. Write your report on the 8th day and send it to me, using the "Contact" form at the side of this website. I wish you a lot of fun and amazing experiences! Fred Dodson *** What follows are reader reports on the Retro-Reality-Creation Experiment Hello Fred I did the experiment and I invited my friends on instagram to join me Some of us had amazing results. The first day I did it I had a situation at work that they were asking me to make a course. I wanted to postpone it but they refused. After I did the technique they contact me and I asked again and they said its ok and I can postpone though what happened was different from the scenario that I visualized the night before. One of my friends was so disappointed because she didn't get any results Some didn't get results but were happy to participate. One of them said that after she did it she had a problem solved and she was so thankful.One of them said that she had been told that her daughter's teacher is out of countryAnd that she won't come back until the end of the month.And her daughter is having an exam next week.She did the technique before she slept and the next day she received a message that the teacher is coming back this week.Another one said that she had bigggggg issues with her in laws for 6 years.She had been attending courses and trying exercises for 4 yearsLike Forgiveness techniques and Hypnotherapy.And she has been waiting for a result.She was trying to solve the problem.But after she saw your technique she imagined her mother in law apologizing to her then she fell asleep.She woke up on Friday and went to her in laws though she hadn't seen them for years.And her mother in law came and hugged her and told her the past is the past.Just like that."So I had quit my old job and have been waiting for this guy to come back to Dubai and interview me for a job I felt much more excited for. He was 2 weeks late. I knew I could get another job if I wanted to, but I liked this one most and when you're sure about something plan b is plan a, so I acted as if he already told me that the job is mine and didn't even look at employment websites. I wrote an essay of a few paragraphs describing how I got the job as if it was a memory and I did the pure to align with the version that already has that job. The very next day he asked me to meet him and I got the job. Just like that. After ( i have been waiting for almost 3 weeks).I knew I could find a job easily I just wanted a specific thing and I also didn't want to spend time unemployed. Happened perfectly.Also I was worried cause I had to give my laptop back. Luckily there's a student discount that allowed me to buy the newest MacBook in the same day I turned in the old one.I'd like to play more with it and send you my results.All the love.Alaa***Hi Fred, you can share this if you want. A couple of weeks ago one of my main clients dropped out of a project with us. Bad words were exchanged on phone, he hung up on me and soon I received the cancellation by mail. This is a client I have invested a lot of time and money into and I was sitting around wondering how I could get him back on board. I hadn't read your website in quite some time but its still in my bookmarks. I clicked on it and discovered the retro imagination experiment. I closed my eyes and remembered the whole phone call with him albeit as I wanted it to be. In my mind I heard him praising our work and he was eager for more. I replayed that a couple times. Then I forgot about it and went home. On the next day I sent the client an email offering improved terms. He accepted. Of course it could be easy to say that he'd have accepted even without your technique, but using it put me in the right frame of mind to make him a new offer (if nothing else). Also, before using it he sounded really angry and after using it he sounded friendly and polite. I hope this Feedback helps.RichardTo continue reading this article, please log-in.
- Consciousness: I now know 100 % that if I only wanted to fulfill a wish really seriously, I could manifest it even if it costs stress and some kind of heart attack ... I realized that sometimes it’s better to RESPECT some circumstances such as health and the feelings of my children ...
- Acceptance: If a wish didn’t come true even if I wished to fulfill this dream so much, I realized that in accepting this limitation it became ok: Limits can make evident that the time for a manifestation hasn’t come yet ... All manifestations were easy exceot the ones (about 20 %) that didn’t come true, even struggling could not make those wishes come true: After a while I accepted and that was my success: FREEDOM through acceptance!!
- Connection: This experiment effected that I now feel extremely connected with my inner knowing and also with my heart, I could improve my serenity and many emotional skills. I felt connected with human kind ... ;-)) I KNOW that everything will come true in a while that belongs to my heart and my life – in easiness – this is sooo wonderful to feel that connected, I really hadn’t experienced this in a long time!

- Responses to readers Q&A Session with Fred Dodson
"Evil is real, but it's mostly attracted through your own fear-fueled Imagination"The negative is an inherent part of this Universe, but whether you experience it or not, depends largely upon yourself. So if my parents came home and said "You're only Imagining things" or a materialist says "Such things are only fairy-tales", that's not entirely true. And if a religious or a paranoid person says "Yes, there is inherent evil in this world!" with the implication that anyone could fall victim to it at any time, that's not true either. Back to the situation: I felt an "evil presence" in the house and heard a "shuffling" in the hallway. I was on high-fear alert and furniture started cracking around me. My imagination + fear, which I had exposed myself to by "believing in the movie" was creating the reality of an "evil presence" in my house. I knew" for certain" that if I tried to go over and turn on the light, that this shadowy figure would reach out its hand from the hallway and tear me apart. But another part of me also knew that if I "changed my vibration", things would ease down again. I had been through this a few times before. It all started and ended with me and my emotional state. I remember telling myself that I must not become so fearful that this "evil presence" takes control of me to a point where I can no longer change my state. Imagination is so powerful that it can create a rock too heavy to lift. (But it's also powerful enough to then be able to lift it anyway, even if with outside assistance). So sitting there, the 12-year-old me "got a grip". With a sudden loud and clear voice I commanded the presence to leave (if my Imagination attracted it, my Imagination could also repel it). As I did so, several shivers went through my body (that special feeling when courage begins replacing fear). Even though I still felt a little trepidation, I marched confidently and firmly toward that light switch while repeating the command, and switched it on. My Imagination was then trying to tell me that the "evil presence" had receded to the darkness of my room at the other side of the house. So I simply went from room to room, turning on the lights everywhere. Each "confrontation" with a room and subsequent light-switching created more courage and confidence. As there was still a lingering mini-fear of that "evil presence" lurking somewhere hidden in the house I started talking loudly, opening closets, singing and joking around, feeling much better already. The fear receded and I went to bed with a book. As my attention shifted to the (pleasant) story of the book, my emotional state improved. Then my parents came home and asked why all the lights are on :-) Of course the presence of grown ups completely wiped out any fear that may have been left. I went to sleep in peace and upon waking up the next morning I had already forgotten about the whole thing. I then lost interest in watching horror-movies for some time. Back then I had also read a few books on Exorcism and I quit reading those too. I had experienced first hand that my interest in and fascination with evil, in combination with fear, attracted such. I have since come to believe that so-called "poltergeist phenomena", for example, can only be present if there is someone in the family with intense-imagination-combined-with-fear. I have also come to suspect that some of the books out there that purport to "expose evil" are themselves kind of evil. I`m not talking about objective journalism that seeks to expose wrong-doings in the world, but about such works that exaggerate threats way out of proportion; books that leave readers feeling like hapless victims of uncontrollable forces. You are not and never will be a complete victim. You always have some influence over what happens if you can regulate your emotional state. So if you are going to watch negative-vibe movies, then do so without emotional involvement. But wait...if there's no emotional involvement, the movies are no fun anymore, right? Alright then. Get a little involved but not to a point of manifesting the whole movie in your real life!:-) Fear-fueld-Imagination is powerful. It will attract all sorts of strangeness and illness. But joy-fueled Imagination is even more powerful. When I used my naive teenaged-mind to watch joyful movies, joyful things would happen. And they still do. That's why we look for really good stories. We are looking for stories that draw us in. And if they draw us in, we connect emotionally. And if we connect emotionally, we are able to manifest that in real life. First believe it, then you see it The following excerpts are taken from the book "Seedtime and Harvest" by Neville Goddard (1905-1972). They share daily-life experience on how imagination influences reality. "Just recently, I had the opportunity to observe the wonderful results of one who had the faith to believe what she did not see. A young woman asked me to meet her sister and her three-yearold nephew. He was a fine, healthy lad with clear blue eyes and an exceptionally fine unblemished skin. Then, she told me her story. At birth, the boy was perfect in every way save for a large, ugly birthmark covering one side of his face. Their doctor advised them that nothing could be done for this type of scar. Visits to many specialists only confirmed his statement. Hearing the verdict, the aunt set herself the task of proving he faith - that an assumption, though denied by the evidence of the senses, if persisted in, will harden into fact. Every time she thought of the baby, which was often, she saw, in her imagination, an eight- month-old baby with a perfect face - without any trace of a scar. This was not easy, but she knew that in this case, that was the gift of Abel which pleased God. She persisted in her faith - she believed what was not there to be seen. The result was that she visited her sister on the child's eight-month birthday and found him to have a perfect, unblemished skin with no trace of a birth- mark ever having been present.... This is the story of a couple living in Sacramento, California, who refused to accept the evidence of their senses, who refused to be robbed, in spite of a seeming loss. The wife had given her husband a very valuable wristwatch. The gift doubled its value because of the sentiment he attached to it. They had a little ritual with the watch. Every night as he removed the watch he gave it to her and she put it away in a special box in the bureau. Every morning she took the watch and gave it to him to put on. Neville Goddard’s Seedtime and Harvest One morning the watch was missing. They both remembered playing their usual parts the night before, therefore the watch was not lost or misplaced, but stolen. Then and there, they deter- mined not to accept the fact that it was really gone. They said to each other, "This is an opportunity to practice what we believe." They decided that, in their imagination, they would enact their customary ritual as though the watch were actually there. In his imagination, every night the husband took off the watch and gave it to his wife, while in her imagination she accepted the watch and carefully put it away. Every morning she removed the watch from its box and gave it to her husband and he, in turn, put it on. This they did faithfully for two weeks. After their fourteen-day vigil, a man went into the one and only jewelry store in Sacramento where the watch would be recognized. As he offered a gem for appraisal, the owner of the store noticed the wristwatch he was wearing. Under the pretext of needing a closer examination of the stone, he went into an inner office and called the police. After the police arrested the man, they found in his apartment over ten thousand dollars worth of stolen jewelry. In walking "by faith, not by sight", this couple attained their desire - the watch - and also aided many others in regaining what had seemed to be lost forever" "I think you will be interested in an instance of how a young woman shed the skin of resentment and put on a far different kind of skin. The parents of this woman had separated when she was six years old and she had lived with her mother. She rarely saw her father. But once a year he sent her a five dollar check for Christmas. Following her marriage, he did increase the Christmas gift to ten dollars. After one of my lectures, she was dwelling on my statement that man's suspicion of another is only a measure of his own deceitfulness, and she recognized that she had been harboring a Neville Goddard’s Seedtime and Harvest resentment towards her father for years. That night she resolved to let go her resentment and put a fond reaction in its place. In her imagination, she felt she was embracing her father in the warmest way. She did it over and over again until she caught the spirit of her imaginary act, and then she fell asleep in a very contented mood. The following day she happened to pass through the fur department of one of our large stores in California. For some time she had been toying with the idea of having a new fur scarf, but felt she could not afford it. This time her eye was caught by a stone marten scarf, and she picked it up and tired it on. After feeling it and seeing herself in it, reluctantly she took off the scarf and re- turned it to the salesman, telling herself she really could not afford it. As she was leaving the department, she stopped and thought, "Neville tells we can have whatever we desire if we will only capture the feeling of already having it." In her imagination, she put the scarf back on, felt the reality of it, and went about her shopping, all the while enjoying the imagined wearing of it. This young woman never associated these two imaginary acts. In fact, she had almost forgotten what she had done until, a few weeks later, on Mother's Day, the doorbell rang unexpectedly. There was her father. As she embraced him, she remembered her first imaginary action. As she opened the package he had brought her - the first gift in these many years - she remembered her second imaginary action, for the box contained a beautiful stone marten scarf" I won't back down Well I won't back down, No I won't back down. You can stand me up at the gates of hell, But I won't back down. No I`ll stand my ground, won't be turned around. And I`ll keep this world from draggin' me down, Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down. - Tom Petty, I won't back down, 1989 Back in 1989 when the above song played on the radio it helped me stand up to the various pressures mounting on me. It lifted my spirits and helped me to "maintain my vibe". Maintaining an intention or goal is the essential key to reality creation. You can be, do or have anything you want in life if you can maintain your belief. I have demonstrated this in my life every time it really counted. Skeptics mock "the law of attraction" and "beliefs create reality" idea all the time. That is because they lack an in-depth understanding of the "maintain your vibe" concept. This in turn, is partially due to positive-thinking teachers misrepresenting the idea. Famous movies such as "The Secret" make it appear as if all you have to do is "think of something" and it will come true, as if by magic. Then someone half-heartedly might go test that idea as in "I`m going to visualize getting a parking spot". And when he doesn't get it, he`ll say "this stuff doesn't work, it's magical thinking" and become a "skeptic". Such exercises have nothing to do with reality-creating or having the courage of a lion. I teach that you can manifest your deepest, true hearts-desires that you imagine and feel so often and warmly that they go into your subconscious. I do not teach that you can suddenly acquire the magical ability to find something as mundane as a parking spot. Yes, sure, your "good vibe" does influence beneficial day-to-day events and that may include free roads and good parking spots. And yes, calling on the help of the "universe" or highest source may lead to "instant manifestations" in several cases. But that's not the rule. The rule is that your dedicated commitment within, eventually creates external results. One of the main components of this inner attitude is "not settling for less". Every time you settle for a lesser job, a lesser partner, a lesser circumstance, a lesser degree of health you are saying that you don't actually believe in or deserve the best life possible and should "lay low" and "not rock the boat". Throughout my life I have insisted on certain realities, committed myself to them and imagined, scripted and visualized them until they came true. Between intention and manifestation there may be times of doubt and loss of faith. These phases are indicated by feeling low, having fears or doubts and letting the several petty inconveniences of daily life get to you. But if you keep "I won't back down, I`ll stand my ground" in mind, none of this really bothers you much because you know that you will experience the next weeks according to what you feel today. If you feel worried and fearful today, guess what you`ll be attracting in the weeks to come? And if you feel joyous and at ease today, guess what you`ll be getting in the weeks to come? It is therefore of most importance to find that "good feeling place" on a daily basis. On the recent 10-day reality-creation-retreat, "finding the good feeling place" through inner imagination was the only exercise we did every single day, until it became a habit. Your feeling of ease and well-being and trust is the only thing that will protect you from the chaos of the world. One of the more popular exercises of the recent seminar was an exercise called "blind trust". In this exercise one person would close their eyes and promise to keep them closed. Another person would act as their guide that they could fully trust and guide them around. Once trust was built with simple blind walks, I asked the participants to expand the exercise to even deeper levels: Under the guidance of their partner, they ran, walked out on boardwalks over the lake, went up stairs and even crossed busy streets - all with eyes closed. One of the realizations was that trust is something that can be built over time. If they bumped into something or fell, it indicated a lack of trust or a lack of reliability of the partner. But could they, especially then, rebuild their trust? Or would they say "My confidence has been shaken and I can now no longer trust"? Unfortunately, in "real life" many choose the "I can no longer trust" option. Trust was discovered as a matter of choosing that which is reliable and slowly building ones confidence in oneself. The more you build trust, the better your life gets. You can do this exercise for yourself but make sure to move slowly and consciously as to stay safe. The most important question is: Can you trust yourself? Will you back down and crumble when the going gets a little tough, or will you maintain your intention? Will you take a "no" from life as a final rejection or will it spur you to continue focusing on your aim? To access the rest of this page, please log-in.
