I had an experience during this week that kind of rocked me a bit and sent me into a state of fear. No need to go into detail but the timing was amazing. So still feeling nothing inside and robotically moving from project to project then blam this thing happens and stirs something in me that I hadn’t felt in years. I didn’t want to feel this and yet there it was. Terrifying!!! I hid, I covered, I numbed myself and went on with the business of being busy. Then I read this from Haanel:
The real secret of power is consciousness of power. The universal mind is unconditional therefore the more conscious we become of our unity with this mind, the less conscious we shall become of conditions and limitations, and as we become emancipated or freed from conditions, we come into a realization of the unconditional. WE HAVE BECOME FREE!!!
See what I meant about timing. Just what I needed to hear that I am in control of my conscious mind and I just needed to connect universally more which is infinite and indivisible and powerful beyond measure.
Deep breaths and re examining the world within allowed me to let go of my fears and bring me back to a centered place of knowing. I began to start feeling a little bit again but not to the level I am used to so I just kept breathing. I take in Og and his suggestion of living each day as if it were my last. I bit morbid but what if it were. Am I where I want to be? Doing what I want to do? Living the life I truly desire? I have to say no so what is holding me back from that? I mean really, what is holding me back? Fear?
Haanel states that our ability to act upon this universal substance and what we think is what is created or produced on the objective world.The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet and the law is that “like attracts like” is invariably what attracts such conditions as corresponds to its nature. The law of attraction. The actual root of Abraham teaching. Now I am getting to it.
From this science we learn that every thought creates an impression on the brain, that these impressions create mental tendencies and these tendencies create character, ability and purpose and that the combined action of character, ability and purpose determines the experiences with which we shall meet in life. Hello! It’s a magnet just as Abraham also always states. I can have the life I want by having my predominant thoughts be about that life. Abraham stated in a cd I was listening to recently that if someone tells you to start living in reality and stop dreaming about what is not really there, they wouldn’t listen because what is our “reality” but what has already been proven to be created based on our thoughts and dreams. They said, they would reach for the better feeling thought and bring the “reality” forward that you really want. Haanel says the same thing essentially when he states that the real battle of life is one of ideas. It is being fought out by the few against the many and on one side is the constructive creative thought. On the other is destructive and negative thought. The creative thought is dominated by an ideal and the passive thought is dominated by appearances. Same statement same teaching.
My takeaway is that the fear is keeping what I really want to bring forth away because I am not aligning with the universal thought and not allowing what I truly want to come forth. The fear is part of what others would say is more of a “realistic view” of how things are. Well I call it and say B^@$~^*t. I am working toward a dream and planning it out step by step. It will soon be my day to day and when that happens, I say I love you to all the naysayers and pray I can help them unplug.
