141. Opportunities

Thought 141Opportunities happen in a moment, in any moment, as we Allow them and/or consciously CREATE them!

Many Opportunities (the upper case ‘O’ signifies consciously Created by our Higher Mind/Consciousness) slip on by while we are distracted.  Yet, as we bring our selves back into “Present Time” ~ out of our emotional and/or intellectual distractions, we find ourselves in the ‘field’ of Opportunities again.

In Creative Goal Setting (CGS) we consciously Create Opportunities by both focusing on one of the Areas of Life that we ‘urgently’ want new Opportunities materialising (whether they be solutions or goals) AND by specifically turning distractions and/or upsets into Opportunities.

A distraction is any situation and/or association that does not feel good or yum, that no longer supports us and is therefore now an out-of-date belief or habit that we’d be better off without.  With Awareness we can see the distractions in our life.  With Creative Goal Setting we choose to write the positive opposite to the distraction into the relevant Area(s) of our Goal Folder, thus consciously re-programming our subconscious mind and Allowing for a new Reality/Opportunity, for the Highest Good of all concerned, to form.

An example:  If we notice, become aware of, being distracted by our relationship status of being “single” we can write a positive opposite statement/Expectation into the Relationships Area of our CGS Program.  Such as: I am now happily enjoying my ideal loving relationship with my partner, my best friend and confidant.

At the same time, I would add another “positive opposite” statement/Tangible Expectation in my Self Area to address the assumption (if there is one) that being single is wrong/lonely/upsetting in some way ~ such as “I am fully being who I really am regardless of my relationship status“.  I would also deal with any other doubts and fears such as thinking that I am not good enough and therefore causing my ‘single’ status ~ with something like “I am confident my Individuality represents who I REALLY am“.  I’d also add an ACTION (as a behavioural/attitudinal modification) statement in my list of Tangible Expectations along the lines of “I am now using EFT to demonstrate that I deeply and completely love and accept myself.  This is using the second half of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) set up phrase, which I highly recommend using in combination with the CGS Program as another cognitive behavioural technique for Progressing our selves up the Emotional Tone Scale to Provide ourselves with a more sane perspective … sure beats ‘processing’ our past over and over again.

In this case we would be writing the Tangible Expectations in our Goal Folder AND EFTing them with set up phrases such as: “Even though I am afraid I am not good enough and therefore causing my single status, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”  And/or “Even though I am afraid I am not fully being who I really am without a good loving relationship to relate to, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”

There will be Personal Values/feelings to add to each Area too, such as love, respect, high self esteem … the potential list is endless, so it needs to be OUR own words relevant to our current circumstances.

Creating Opportunities is a personal journey … be sure to enjoy it, make it fun and easy and take advantage of the “tools” found at www.CreativeGoalSetting.com!

140. Awakening Awareness

Thought 140We experience tiredness when we have been trying … TRYING … to control things.  Letting go/detaching from our emotional attachments to specific outcomes and Allowing our Consciousness do Its Thing, juggling our wants, wishes, preferences, desires and intentions in Ways that are for the Highest Good of all concerned, works in much more fun and easy ways.

YES, I know … I also say be FOCUSED.  Be focused on an Outcome that includes the Intention that Highest Good of ALL concerned is being taken care of by our (plural) Consciousness (ie not something we need to consciously manage on behalf of others, or our future self). As we can’t know what our future Higher Good (due to possible changes in circumstances and emotional attachments, etc) or the Higher Good of others … not even our children’s … is going to be, then we need to Allow ‘wiggle’ room for our Consciousness to Deliver for everyone’s benefit!

In Creative Goal Setting we sum up our goals/expectations with the phrase “This goal or something better has now materialised for me for the Highest Good of all concerned.”  The “or something better” is activating the Law of Detachment.

The Law of Detachment is about NOT micro-managing life, but Allowing Life to unfold both as we want it, and for our (and others’) Highest Good.  Although we can usually only see the benefits in hindsight, our Higher Self/Consciousness can see/Create the benefits with foresight.  Allowing that Wisdom into our life, Allows, what I love to call, the Flow ~ of Consciousness.

In taking the risk of ‘letting go’ all the blocks/issues/subconscious distractions that we are ‘trying’ to hold down below the surface of consciousness (remain unconscious of probably so we can’t, and others won’t, see our pain and/or “weaknesses”) we let ‘em all pop up to the surface and float around us.   At this point we can use our Awareness (and the Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT) to release our emotional attachment to them as and only when we actually see them.  In other words we don’t need to go looking for subconscious blocks/distractions.  We do not need to process our past, when we can simply Progress our Present.

The potential pain and “weakness” have a tendency to show up in our Reality at just the right time, with auspicious appropriateness, anyway.  But while we are trying to control our pain and “weaknesses”as though they are problems, we are fighting the fear of them, rather than actually Dealing with anything relevant to our current well being; we are simply processing for the sake of processing.  Giving more attention (emotional attachment) to what we don’t want, in this case our fears/weaknesses, instead of what we REALLY do want.  Because it has become trendy to do so, we now habitually think we have to have it all under control.  Yet, as we let go the “need” to control we experience emotional freedom and aliveness!

It’s absolutely OK to be human.  Being an Aware human is Progress toward Being something/one even Greater ~ our very own Consciousness.  We can start Enjoying our own Progress of materialising our dreams again without comparing ourselves with others, or with out-of-date expectations ~ YIPPPPPEEEEE emotional freedom, ALIVENESS ~ Awakening our Awareness!

139. Creating Clarity

Thought 139Creating Clarity, through whatever methods we prefer, is important.

Staying focused, in any way we can, on what we REALLY want/prefer is important.

Enjoying the Progress of gaining Clarity and staying Focused is Key; simply because Happiness is an outcome of Enjoyment; a good Feeling! ~ no other reason necessary.

Thus creating the Balance with and between our Mind/Thoughts and our Feelings.

What is your favourite way of discovering what you REALLY prefer?  Mine is through conversation; conversation with others and with my Self.  Chatting with others inspires new ideas for me.  Asking my Self “How”/”What” questions guides me to being, doing and having what I REALLY want.

Once I start getting a feel for what I think I’d REALLY prefer as my Tangible Expectations and Personal Values I write them in my Creative Goal Setting Program to maintain the focus needed to evolve and expand them into being; to materialise them.  Life can be full of distractions that easily take our focus and redirect it, this is the shimmering world of our conscious mind!  Yet we can Master our conscious mind and use it to Create what we REALLY want.  All it needs is some Constructive Tools to guide it!

From the Thinking we need to DEMONSTRATE … do the ACTIONS … that Support our Decisions.  A Decision is not made until the ACTION is done to demonstrate it.

Then we can do the next most important step ~ relax and enjoy what we already have ~ Appreciation.  Once we are in the Flow of Creation, this becomes a cycle, a loop, of Conscious Creation.  At this stage there is no ‘first’ or ‘last’ step, each follow on from the last.  Appreciation being a NEXT most important step.

Knowing that our Consciousness is Providing Universal Feedback about what we have been Thinking, Allowing us another Opportunity to gain even more Clarity about what we NOW REALLY want/prefer as we evolve.  DOING Enjoyment/Appreciation attrACTS more joy in having, doing and being what we REALLY want.  Enjoying each part of the process, enjoying the Thinking and the Actions, produces a Happiness beyond measure … it is personal, it is Individual, it is how we Create the Feeling of Heaven on Earth.

Pay attention to how you keep your “Law of AttrACTION” technique working consciously.  Improve it, evolve your technique, be interested in how you are materialising your reality.  Get to know your self and HOW you materialise your Reality ~ this is your Resource, use it.

Once we know the basics, it is easy to keep our “Progress” going and our “technique” simple.

Much of the Personal Development ‘training’ being sold and promoted as the latest trendy thing to do, along with our programmed (via mainstream media, education, etc) ways of thinking have us re-living old beliefs/thought patterns, processing the past, unnecessarily.  Wasting valuable “Now” time that we could be simply … Enjoying.

We can do what we already know we love doing, being and having ~ while what we have asked for is materialising according to our state of mind.  Our state of Havingness; which is our ability to Receive and to Be that which we want to experience.  Most of us are asking for things/outcomes that we believe will make us feel happy … without the ability to be happy first.

So, practice Being Happy; because being Happy is an ACTion which attrACTs more Happiness!  While our thinking focuses on the “What/How” questions we are asking (ie “What can I do now to increase my ability to Have what I REALLY want?”), our feelings can be directed by our Mind to Feel happy/content/joyful/etc, to Feel good (it is a choice we always have, we can always choose what we want to feel by focusing on what we want to feel) ~ attrACTing the Right Answers at the Right Time for the Right Reasons!

Works for me! … If you don’t already have a better (more fun and easy) technique then give this one, Creative Goal Setting, a go.

138. Waking Up to Enlightenment

Thought 138What if Life was just dishing up Opportunities for us to “Wake-up”.  And then when we are “Awake”, to relax and enjoy all that we are Creating.

It seems to me that life is a struggle and/or a battle with situations and associations ONLY until we realise that none of that is necessary.

We go through a stage of being in the battle (for survival).  Then we notice the battle and become Aware of our role in perpetuating it.  This would be just before deciding we don’t want to participate in it any more.

At this point we tend to turn the battle onto our self and instead of blaming others, we now blame our self; making the ‘ego’ wrong and bad.  Which reminds me of the religious teaching that “we are all sinners”; I choose to disagree with this notion and that of making the ‘ego’ our “scapegoat.”

Instead of falling back on religious/New Age dogma, we can notice a further choice; the Opportunity to not do battle, blame others or justify our behaviours to ourselves, nor fall down into apathy!  Apathy is just another form of denial, so I am not suggesting we “don’t see” what is actually going on; I am not advocating avoidance – quite the opposite in fact, I am suggesting we become Aware and USE our conscience effectively.  But we do not need to continue down the old path of struggle and doing battle to resolve issues that present themselves.

No longer doing battle/struggle Allows a lot of extra time in our day.  Having extra time to fill can be rather daunting initially as we can accidentally slip back into old habits of processing the “battle” and struggle at any point.

“Processing” being a typical “New Age Movement” gap filler ~ hours, days (often weeks – years) go by as we ‘process’ the old battle … and the struggle continues!  Whereas Dealing with what is happening in the moment it happens is Progressing.  The rest is just “processing,” an indirect form of the unnecessary struggle; a time filler before we WAKE UP and start Allowing our version of Happiness.

It is at this time that we can benefit from having ‘ego’/self as a friend.  We can chat with and ask our self/’ego’ what it is we REALLY want/prefer.  When our ‘ego’/self feels “heard” … it emotionally matures and starts asking for good and useful things like positive relationships, opportunities to feel good, emotional freedom, etc.  Mature Ego has a list of wants and preferences just as long as immature ego ~ only better and more High Tone!

There is nothing wrong with “wanting” and/or “preferring” something more … as long as we are not setting goals for other people!!!  Wanting/preferring is Mature Ego’s way of expanding, of providing a Direction and/or a Purpose; creating meaning for our life here on Earth or where-ever we are having it this time.

Of course, some of us use the Creative Goal Setting Program to Constructively list our preferences, wants, desires, hopes and wishes (written only about our self of course!) in such a way that we fill our hours and days with joy and freedom, replacing the old battles and struggles we used to “buy” into.

As our perception changes, our Reality changes ~ from ‘life is a battle of survival’ to life can be fun and easy; then Life IS fun and easy.  The Path to it consists of a series of Right Choices.

An adaptation to a well known saying …

Before enlightenment: chop wood, carry water.
After enlightenment: chop wood, carry water while whistling a merry tune!

137. Sharing Consciousness

Thought 137

Sharing … What do we have, do and/or be that we can share?

When I look at the current global economic scheme that has been played out as some sort of malicious game by a small group of people, for thousands of years now, I become Aware of my desire for change.  And I become Aware of my feelings of being conned, manipulated, cheated and lied to.  AND then …

I focus on what I REALLY want/prefer.  It is important (in my opinion) that we choose what we think, think consciously, and take up the challenge of Dreaming of what we REALLY want.  Our Personal Power is in using our Imagination.  Don’t make the mistake of missing the simplicity of this ~ all Great things ARE ‘hidden’ in Plain View!!!

Our Imagination is our Greatest Resource and we all have it, just as we all have Consciousness … but most are simply not aware of the Power inherent in these ‘Inner’ Resources because we have been tricked and manipulated into searching elsewhere for Inspiration and Guidance.  They called the external source “God” and gave it “human” qualities, while at the same time admitting it is anything but human … that “it” it Greater that human, more Powerful than a mere human.  While they were at it, they gave this source a judgemental mind of its own; causing its separation from the individual … removing the Power from the individual.

By practising what I preach I have discovered what I REALLY prefer.  I have consciously Allowed myself to day-dream and discover what I REALLY want.  I want to build up my Vision of Creating what I want and need as I want and need it, Knowing it is all already Provided.  (in the old ‘negative’ jargon this translates to: “I want to drop out of the financial game”.

I have learnt that my Higher Self/Mind, Consciousness, Provides me with the opportunity to use the internet, computers, etc … not an employer, government, etc ~ they are merely Consciousness’s methods of Delivery, today.  In another moment at the Right Time as decreed by my Self (based on my Beliefs), my Consciousness can and will, as necessary, find other ways to Deliver that which I REALLY want and/or prefer.

This is freedom (emotional freedom) from financial expectations.

When we use “How/What” questions, and release the fear of not being able to pay (with money) for our house, car, computer, etc … then we are left asking ourselves, “What do I pay with?” or “How do I get a ………?”  Amazingly we, often in a state of desperation, listen to our Universal Feedback/Consciousness which Provides information and physical “needs” via the easiest method currently available.

I personally, don’t feel good about the barter system … all sorts of emotional dramas come from this when someone has emotional attachment to a belief such as: “my bag of carrots may not be enough “payment” for an eco-friendly vehicle!”  This “need” to barter and/or exchange is, in my opinion, what started the financial mess we have ourselves in now.

At what point did we ever decide that we had to exchange ANY THING at all for the privilege of partaking in the available Abundance that we Created on this (or any other) Planet that we Created???  I suspect only when we were tricked/conned/manipulated into thinking this way (while enjoying a state of amnesia in which we have totally forgotten Who we ACTUALLY are).  When we were convinced that it would in some way benefit us (as consumers … of their folly).  This small group of manipulators still, to this day, endeavour to convince each and every one of us via a sophisticated “education” and “media” programming directed globally at all people … starting us all off during early childhood.

And because reincarnation is real … we have many REAL memories of how it is done, the roles we have played and the accumulated “story” as to why we apparently should continue!  Hence the indoctrination is continued so many centuries later.  This is the essence to the real meaning of “collective consciousness” … the consciousness we have collected over time and are choosing to relate to; making it our Reality.  OR from which we can WAKE UP and Remember Who and What we REALLY are AND step out of the ‘collective’ that we’ve been herded into!  Becoming conscious of our Consciousness again.

When I continued my journey of asking “How/What” questions, I discovered SHARING.  When we let go the ‘fear of scarcity’ (you know the one they sell us, the manufactured “economic climate” always based on scarcity), we are left with ABUNDANCE.

I experience Abundance.  It is a natural state of Being when we are in Consciousness.  As we buy into scarcity, we pull the veil down over our Consciousness yet again.

Use the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) with a Set-up phrases something like:  “Even though I am ‘buying into’ the financial scarcity model of paying taxes & interest, etc, so that I ‘can live comfortably’, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”

When we Share whatever we have, do and be … while dreaming of what we REALLY want to Create, our Universal Feedback/Consciousness keeps on Providing as it ALWAYS has, and IS currently doing, everything we need and want/prefer.  Money is superfluous (completely unnecessary) to this Process.
