We Are Never Alone

I would like to remind all who are working on prosperity, abundance and manifesting right now that we are never alone in this process. I believe we all have Divine guidance to call upon whenever we want assistance with anything. Prayer is exceptionally powerful and it is always responded to, whether we believe in it or not. It doesn't have anything to do with religion -- it is a very spiritual (and scientific) process. Those who believe their prayers are not being heard are simply not listening or paying attention.

I believe the best and fastest way to hear the answers to our prayers is through meditation. Getting into a relaxed, peaceful state in a quiet environment allows us to be receptive and to "hear" the answers. Those who do not meditate will still receive the replies through various channels, such as television, people (including strangers), dreams, etc. This, of course, requires paying attention to what is going on around us so the answers to our prayers are recognized.

Abundance and Prosperity is Our Birthright

What would you do if you lived in a world that was abundant and everyone was prosperous? Take a few moments and imagine such a Utopian world. Would you still work and if so, what kind if work would you do? What would the world around you look like? What would you look like?

Years ago, I read one example of such a reality in Ayn Rand's fictional masterpiece, Atlas Shrugged. It was supposed to be made into a Hollywood movie long ago but never was, at least not yet. I feel that story is very prophetic.

The Universe is abundant. Just look at all of the stars and galaxies. Abundance and prosperity is natural and is our birthright. I believe we all have the opportunity and ability to experience this in our lifetime and it can begin at any time, whenever we are ready and open to receive it.

Using Our Imagination to "Act as If"

A way to manifest or create what we want is to act as if we already have it or act as if the situation already occurred. Our imagination is the most powerful tool we have.

Just as an example, let’s say you have your eye out on the latest BMW model but it seems unlikely since your earnings are spent each month on bills and mortgage. Rather than focus on how the car is too expensive and how many payments it would take before you can own it, just focus on it already being yours. Forget about the cost. Mentally visualize yourself driving your Beamer down the road on your way to work or elsewhere. Feel what it’s like behind the wheel. Picture your friends in the car with you. Hear other people admiring your new car. Breathe in the new car smells. See the car parked in your driveway.

You can make it more real by going to a BMW dealership to look at the cars. You are not there to buy one (although you can pretend that you are), just to enhance your visualization. Take in every detail visually and by touch. Touching it adds to your cellular memory. Use all of your senses. Test drive one in your favorite color and model.

What happens in this example is that the BMW begins to actually take shape in the invisible realms, the causal plane. It doesn’t take long for this to happen. Then by deliberately focusing on it being yours each day for a few minutes (as in the earlier Seth exercise), adding your feelings to it and letting go of how it will happen, this car will appear physically in your life as yours one way or another. It can come to you as a gift, a prize or an inheritance. Or perhaps you will receive the money to purchase one.

If you are doubtful, just look around at the things you have in your life. They came into your life the same way -- you may not have been aware of the actual process.

Full Moon Energy & Mercury Retrograde

Have you done your Full Moon meditation/affirmations today? The powerful energies of this Full Moon will last until July 24th and now is the time to put our intentions out to the Universe to be manifested into physical form. Besides my meditation, I took a wonderful, long walk under the Full Moon tonight and did my affirmations.

As I usually add to such posts, here is the link to my article on this topic called, Connect With the Moon Phases to Manifest Your Desires

Also, Mercury will go retrograde starting Friday, July 22 through August 15. This means we will experience some communication delays in our lives which could be related to computers, phone messages, satellites, television, radio, travel plans, family and love relationships - the list is long. Anything that involves communication will be affected. Since this particular Mercury retrograde is in Leo, the affect on those born with Leo sun, moon and rising signs will experience this more strongly.

Two months ago on The Isle Of Light Internet radio show, I interviewed Susan Miller, internationally known astrologer, popular columnist and best-selling author of Planets and Possibilities and The Year Ahead 2005 (a great book, by the way), and she said it's best to wait until after the retrograde before starting something new, unless we have a prior relationship with the people or businesses involved. Then it can be a positive and healing experience. Check out her website , Astrology Zone for a wealth of free, excellent information:

Working Hard to Make Ends Meet

Many believe we must work hard in order to make ends meet, in order to make money. Many believe struggle is part of making money. I've learned that struggle and hard work only creates more struggle and hard work. Trying to force or will money to come to us only creates resistance and blocks. I believe it is the opposite that works, it is the "letting go" that allows the energy of money to flow to us.

For instance, I have a relative who happens to be Japanese and was raised with a very strong work ethic as people are in Japan. I saw this first hand while living in that country and they are very proud of it, emphasizing their expertise and quality in everything they do (something the U.S. can learn from).

When she came to the U.S. and began to work, I noticed she worked very hard and eventually worked two full-time jobs, with hardly any time left for herself or anything. I asked her why she was working these jobs and she said she believed she must in order to pay the bills. She couldn't see any way out. I shared my beliefs with her about hard work and struggle and how life can be different when we put the intention out there stating what we really want. I asked her what she loved to do and was surprised at the answer since it was quite different from anything she has ever done or earned college degrees for.

Anyway, one day her doctor told her she must let go of one of her jobs since it was affecting her health in a detrimental way. She quit her most stressful job and shortly after, she was offered a promotion at the job she kept. She received yet another promotion after only a few months and earned an excellent income, allowing her the freedom to do just about anything she wanted, including traveling regularly to Japan for vacation. I noticed she was much happier and her health improved tremendously.

I'm sharing this because for some of us, it takes something major, like a health crisis in order to change what we are doing. Many find it very difficult to take that leap of faith so they continue their pattern of behavior until something happens, forcing a change. A crisis can force people to finally let go and in the process of letting go it allows abundance and prosperity to come in, sometimes rather quickly.

Our Imagination

One manifesting method that has and continues to work exceptionally well for me throughout my life is one that only requires using the imagination, the most powerful tool we have as human beings.

Whenever I really wanted a specific job, for example, I didn't worry about how many others were seeking that same job or whether or not I had a chance of getting it. I didn't worry about anything. I only focused on what it would be like to work there, making sure I left it open to the Universe for me to attract this particular job or something better. I put all of my good feelings, energy and visualization into it, making it as real as possible, just like a daydream.

The more clearly I could see myself working at the job I desired, the more I knew I would get that job. It works every time.

What Do Coincidences Really Mean?

And why do they happen?

I recently interviewed Susan Watkins, author of five books including Conversations With Seth (Book 1 was released again May, 2005), Speaking of Jane Roberts: Remembering the Author of the Seth Material and now her new book coming out in September, 2005 called, What a Coincidence! Understanding Synchronicity in Everyday Life.

Some of you remember the late Jane Roberts and the spiritual entity named Seth who spoke through her many years ago. Seth introduced the "create your own reality" concept, enlightening people world-wide and opening new doors for emerging authors and spiritual teachers.

Jane Roberts taught ESP classes in the 1960s and 1970s and Susan Watkins was one of her students. Transcripts of Seth coming through Jane, along with valuable information and the experiences of her classmates became Susan's book, Conversations With Seth.

During the show, Susan Watkins explains how coincidences happen in our lives and we learn what "coincidence clusters" are. She provides examples of coincidences from her new book, What a Coincidence!.

"These coincidences are representing something larger intuitively, some piece of information about your life in the moment that you're meant to pay attention to..."

If you are interested in hearing more, click on the MP3 link below to listen to this interview called, "Paying Attention to Coincidences". I will also have an excerpt from her new book in the July issue of The Isle Of Light online newsletter.

This interview also airs on The Isle Of Light Internet radio show at Live365 at various dates and times.

What kind of coincidences have you experienced lately?

More on Doing What We Love...

Back to doing what we love to do in life, I've learned that we can start right now - even while working at a job that just pays the bills. I had this conversation recently with a dear friend who is waiting for the day when she can quit her job and focus on what really makes her heart sing. She had many "what ifs" and "buts" which have been holding her back.

I let her know that she can do something now that falls in line with her desires, even if it is for an hour or two, while she has her current job. Volunteer to do whatever it is you love -- it can turn into a paying position or provide the necessary experience to start a business. Making that small gesture towards your heart's desire will always open up many doors and possibilities.

Receiving is as Important as Giving

I've learned that many people find it very challenging to receive, especially females since it is still common for us to be programmed early in life to be the givers, always the caretakers. Giving and receiving circulates the flow of energy. Both are very important for attracting prosperity and abundance.

Showing gratitude when we are given something (including compliments) is also highly important since it keeps the doors open for more to come into our lives. This doesn't mean we are obligated to keep a gift -- we always have the right to do anything we want to with it. It's the gratitude that makes the difference energetically. A thank you to those giving to us and/or thanking God (or the Universe) works wonders!

As with giving, there are times when it isn't in our best interest to receive. When someone is giving to us with strings attached or attempting to manipulate us with a gift (including money), we can say "no" and refuse it. This kind of giving carries a very low frequency and therefore, doesn't feel good at all when we are presented with the gift. Saying "no" in these kind of situations keeps the energy flowing and the doors open for wonderful things to come to us.
