Saturday someone had come over to buy one of the last things for sale – a 12 foot fence gate – when we got to talking. After I told him my last five things to sell, he wanted to see the Saab that wouldn’t run. Long story short he wanted it and went home to get more cash.
Come time to swap title for cash we couldn’t find the title for the car or the truck! Lost in the moving process I guess.
I have to throw in here that that very morning I had watched a video by one of my favorite people Nic Askew where I was reminded that instead of we the human race being humans looking for spiritual experiences -in fact we are more likely spiritual beings experiencing human life for a short time. Profound difference!
In that light I was able to watch everything that happened on Monday as I went from bank to petty govt official in a whole different perspective.
When we bought the boat, we handed someone cash, and he handed us a bill of sale and we shook hands.
No govt. No banks, No tax people, no notary.
Just two people making an agreement for better or for worse.
One of the thoughts at the end of 5 hours and 120 miles of driving ( to replace two titles to two vehicles I supposedly owned) was that our actions lately make me feel like I am getting my life title back from some govt entity somewhere.
This is a great post from J.C. Hutchins who is a novelist. His new book is a thriller 7th Son: Descent at JCHutchins.net.
Most of us settle in, and settle for what we have. Rather than pursue, we accept. Our lives become unwitting celebrations of passivity: we undervalue our work and perceive ourselves as wage slaves (and so we phone it in at the day gig), we consume compulsively (but not create), we pine for better lives (but live vicariously through our televisions).
These corners we paint ourselves into, it’s no way to live. There’s no adventure here, no passion, no hunger for change. Remember that relentless optimism you once had? We goals you wished to achieve, before settling in? They’re still there. You need a nudge to find them; a little gumption.
You can start that business. You can lose that weight. You can quit smoking, and learn to garden, and write that book, and be a better parent, and be all the things you want to be … the thing this world needs you to be. It requires courage and faith, both of which you can muster. It requires effort — but this effortless life isn’t as satisfying as it seems, is it?
Declare war on passivity. Hush the inner voice that insists you’re over the hill, past your prime, unworthy of attaining those dreams. Disbelief is now the enemy, as is the notion of settling. Get hungry — hyena hungry. Get fired up. Find your backbone, and your wings. Flap ‘em. It’s the only way you’ll be able to fly.
There is power in attracting abundance and prosperity.
There are millions of websites out there all with their own methods and techniques to use the law of attraction, so this will only be brief, and act as a no nonsense guide to some essentials you need to be doing to attract the abundance and prosperity that you deserve in life.
There are basic principles which all should considered in order to gain success with the Law of Attraction, and here are some key ones:
To find real success in attraction you should immerse yourself in it and make it a big part of your life. This is the primary essential principle – You need to do a lot of it, and change the way you live your life on a day to day basis.
The standard method of attracting prosperity, money and abundance is to think of it consciously in your everyday life, and the advice you will read everywhere is to use these positive affirmations on a daily basis. This is a very basic principle of attraction. When you repeat these affirmations day in, day out, then they will start to come into existence.
You will start to believe in the affirmation slowly, and the statements will become just part of who you are.
Visualization is a very powerful tool – it tricks the mind into believing the event has already happened, so much so that visualizing something is nearly as powerful as actually doing it – the near exact same emotions will be felt.
The important part here though is that whatever the mind thinks about and visualizes is what you will attract to yourself. Because you have already visualized yourself consistently with lots of money, with that new car, the new house etc then reality play “catch up” and brings to you more of the same – even though you technically have not experienced it.
A vision board is basically a board of various different images of the things you want to attract. So you could have helicopters on there, a picture of a mansion, pictures of money, swimming pools, cars, holidays etc
You will see your vision board every day, so thoughts of abundance will go through your mind on a regular basis even when you are not consciously repeating affirmations etc.
Make Changes As if It’s Happened Already
This means making the changes in your life as if the abundance you are seeking is already happening. For example if you met your ideal partner today would they have somewhere to sleep / to put their toothbrush etc? If not then make space for them – even go and get that new double bed. If you bought that dream car would you even have the space in your garage?
If you are not doing these things then it means there is a lack of belief somewhere deeper down. Imagine you were going to buy that dream car today, you would of spent the week cleaning the garage! So do it anyway!
Even the slightest subconscious hint of disbelief can hamper your success a lot, and even stop you from manifesting the things you want. We get more of what we think about so if even a part of you doesn’t believe you will be able to manifest anything, or doesn’t believe your efforts will work then this is exactly what will result!
Belief can be quite difficult to build upon, but you must just stay focused and see the positive in every situation. You can read about other people’s success to spur you on and keep you driven and focused.
Another way that you can enhance your belief is with the use of subliminal messages to reprogram your mind. Our subliminal attract money in abundance album will eliminate the deep rooted negative thoughts and disbelief in your subconscious mind so that your entire conscious mind and subconscious are working together as one – so you will be much more likely to attract the abundance you want – and much sooner too.
What if I told you your whole life has been training you to be unhappy?
See if this makes sense to you.
Since you were born, every commercial and advertisement you have seen, plus social pressure has mandated the following formula (which I believe to be not only wrong but has brought us to the mess we are in)
1. DO something in your life that will make you as much money as possible so you can…
2. HAVE lots of stuff. (cars, houses, clothes, friends etc) because when you have this stuff you will look like those people in the commercials and advertisements and you will…
3. BE somebody! You will BE happy, and have a great body, life, relationship, whatever.
What this has done is drive us into serious, debilitating debt, greed, jealousy etc. It has driven us away from the value system this country was built upon.
Here is the true formula to follow…
1. BE who you are. Invest the time to learn about you – and be joyful in exactly who that is. Under no circumstances attempt to be somebody else. It never works.
2. DO what you love to do. Not only are you investing your whole life into this – you are responsible for accomplishing things in this world only you can do – so do them!
3. HAVE what you need. The universe has always supplied what we need. It will continue to do so. Especially if you are being who you are and doing what you love!
Disagree or agree? And how are will you accomplish this?
