Powerful Guidance for Meditation – And How to Maximize Its Benefits

May 11, 2020

Meditation is a mysterious, powerful tool we can use to bring us closer to God and to rapidly manifesting His will for us. For those that don’t really understand what meditation is all about, it brings to mind weird scenes of people sitting cross-legged and “omming” continuously. Although some may meditate that way, and that is certainly not a problem as long as they feel comfortable with that, there is far more to mediation, and what it can do to improve the quality of our lives.

Many people avoid meditation because they don’t truly understand what it is, nor do they understand its amazing benefits. I hope to clarify both of those ideas in this article. Also, I mention mediation as one of the key initial ingredients in the rapid manifestation formula in my book The Ease and Keys of Rapid Manifestation. For me, the best definition I’ve seen for meditation is in one of the best books I’ve ever read called “The I AM Discourses.” This book does a wonderful job of showing us who we actually are, and how to utilize the amazing power within us. I highly recommend you read it. In Chapter 9, it mentions meditation and defines it very simply… “meditation really means feeling the presence of God.” That’s it! I don’t think you can find a more simple, true definition of what meditation really is. That in itself is the whole point. Stilling your body and mind and simply focusing on God and his beautiful presence. If you can spend even a few minutes a day doing that, you will see quick, positive, and powerful changes in your life.

While in meditation, it is important to maintain your focus on God and His wonderful presence. In the I Am book, author Godfre Ray King adds, “when one attempts to enter meditation, he cannot drag all the disturbance that has beset him during the day along with him.” Sometimes this is easier said than done. So the advice given is to “consciously remove from the feeling and attention every disturbing thing, enter into your meditation to feel the presence of God, and do not revolve your troubles.”

This process is so simple and peaceful. You can do it for 5 minutes or 5 hours. You can do it once a day or several times throughout your day. Its main benefits are that it brings you closer to God, which then results in an incredible peace. It helps you realize He is right there with you to protect you and help you accomplish anything. It also brings your mind and emotional vibration to a much a higher state. This is beneficial because as your energy vibration increases and stays in a more positive state, it attracts circumstances into your life that match the high emotional level. Also, those troubles that you are putting to the side as you focus on God and his power, seem to gradually and magically disappear.

Meditation doesn’t have to be a weird, mysterious process. You can use it regularly to bring yourself closer to God, know who you really are, and keep your mind and heart at a peaceful and powerful vibration that attracts excellence into your life. So what are you waiting for? Still your mind and experience the amazing peace and manifestations that meditation brings. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Your Ultimate Guide to Manifesting Your Dream Life

April 1, 2020

I found this excellent step-by-step guide for the manifestation of your goals…

Endo Strong

The idea of “manifesting” change in your life might sound a little woo-woo, but it’s more than making a wish and idly standing by until it comes true.

Manifestation can be defined as “bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief” — but it’s also the act of taking radical steps toward change. It’s not only about hope and belief, but also about action and power.

Through the active practice of manifestation, you can make real changes that lead to living your dream life. I’ve read about enough people using this practice to get their dream jobs, attract a loving partner or make their wildest fantasies come true that I believe it works.

I don’t pretend to understand why, but whether psychological or spiritual in nature, manifestation is the real deal — and here’s how to start using it in your own life.

Understand the Law of Attraction.

A Biblical Perspective on the Law of Attraction

January 27, 2020

One of my main goals in this space is to show how the ideas on Law of Attraction and those in the Bible go hand in hand. I firmly believe that the Law of Attraction, and dare I say many of the laws of science are Biblical.

In essence, the Law of Attraction says that what we receive in life is a direct reflection of the thoughts we think in our minds and the corresponding emotions we feel in our hearts. Basically, if we think and maintain positive thoughts, along with emotions such as love, joy, and gratitude, we will experience them in our lives.

I have studied this and lived it enough to know that it alone is totally true. As a Christian, I have found plenty of Bible verses to show that this is not just some modern-day thinkers trying to brainwash people into New Age philosophy. It is actual Biblical truth. It gets a bad name because many people use this law (which is as true a law as gravity, electricity, etc.) in a greedy fashion instead of using it for the greater good of humanity.

One key Bible verse that I’ve reflected on recently, is from Proverbs 4:23. The verse says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”. An even simpler version says, “More than anything you guard, protect your mind, for life flows from it.” I also love the Expanded Bible version which says, “Be careful what you think [L Above all that you guard, protect your heart], because ·your thoughts run your life [L life flows from it].

In my opinion, it can’t be any more clear that there is a direct correlation between the thoughts we think, what we feel in our heart and the quality of our lives. As a Christian, I understand that God’s will is supreme. I know that life is not always great, and there are reasons (often unknown) for that. Overall though, it is a simple fact, and if you don’t want to believe in the Law of Attraction information that the world supplies, go with the Biblical information that God Himself provides for us.

I will say it again, and I believe it more firmly every day. If you want a high quality, joyful life, then think high-quality thoughts. Follow the Biblical advice of thinking on whatever is good, honorable, and worthy of praise. To experience full joy, start from within. Be grateful for the big things and even the little ones. Then you will experience situations in your life that will be joyful for you and for those around you. When you create positive emotions, you will be given life situations that will also create those positive emotions.

I can write books on this topic (I actually have), and I hate to limit it to a short space here. However, as I further reflected on this verse, I found other articles that communicate the same message. I share them with you here…..

How to Guard Your Heart

What Does Guard Your Heart Mean in the Bible?

Remember what the verse says…protect your heart because your life flows from it. Be sure to think beautiful, joyful thoughts. Then the Bible says the same type of life will follow. Enjoy the blessings 🙂

 


A Sick Reminder of Who I Really Am

February 26, 2019

I have been a practicing Christian for over 30 years. I have also been a student of the Law of Attraction (which I believe works hand in hand with Christianity) for the past ten. Even with those long time frames, I still receive reminders that I am not applying the power of each in my life as much as I could. Here is a recent example…

Over the past weekend, I was battling a sickness, a mini flu bug. On Sunday, it was a major project just to get off the couch or out of bed. I didn’t eat much, so I was further weakened because of that. I missed a fun family gathering, but passed the day watching a Nascar race, and just enjoying a peaceful day.

Monday would be my first day back to work after a week vacation. We are discouraged from taking the first day off after a vacation, so since we were experiencing a windstorm in the Buffalo area of almost hurricane force all day and night (an unusual event in our city) I thought maybe the school I work at would close and I would get another day to recover. I actually found out Sunday night that the wish was granted, and an immediate peace came over me as I would indeed get another day to recover without having to call in.

The problem was that when I woke up early Monday morning, I felt just as bad if not worse than I felt the day before. It was then where I realized that a lot of this sickness had to do with my thinking. Sure, I know sometimes God allows us to become sick for reasons only known to Him. And I thought maybe this was one of those times. However, as I lay there, I still decided to get my mind thinking correctly and aligning it to who I really am. You see, who I really am (and who you really are) is a being that shares the spirit of God. The kingdom of heaven is in our midst, which after looking up a true definition of midst, I learned that it means our essence or very being. Another Bible verse says in HIm we live and move and have our being.

I was reminded that the Spirit that I am a part of is perfect and whole. It is never sick, and in fact does not even know sickness. At that moment, I said a prayer asking that I would be led to keep my mind focused completely on who I really am. As I lay in bed and did this, an almost immediate peace took over. I fell asleep for about two hours. When I woke up, I felt wonderful! Sure, I was still stuffy and coughing and had some lingering effects of the sickness. However, I easily got out of bed, made some breakfast, and did my morning routine as if it was a Saturday (even though it was a Monday). I took the day slow, but felt better and better throughout.

Did I heal myself? No, God did. However, I am willing to take some credit for the time frame in which it happened, and I thank God for answering my prayer. I prayed that I would keep my mind focused on who I really am instead of focusing on the sickness. Remember, a key idea of the Law of Attraction is that the thoughts and ideas you focus on are the outcomes that manifest in your life. As that prayer was answered, and I kept my mind focused correctly, I believe the healing happened faster than it would have otherwise.

I thank God for this excellent reminder, and I share it willingly with anyone patient enough to have read this far. Remember who you really are and who you really belong to. God is with you in every moment, and you are with Him every moment. And when you keep your mind focused on this truth and the truth of whatever it is you are looking to get through or accomplish, you are much more likely to see it come into being. Enjoy that blessing 🙂


A Different Question to Ask to Manifest Your Desires

January 14, 2019

If you are somewhat familiar with the Law of Attraction and manifesting your desires, you most likely have learned the right question to ask and the ones not to ask. For example, we are told to ask and answer the question “what”? What is it exactly that we want to manifest? We are told to not ask the question “how”? When we focus on how our desire is going to manifest, we lose focus, begin to doubt, and drastically slow the process of manifesting our desire.

As I’ve studied this topic further, I have been advised to consider a different question. That question is “why”? Why do we want what we want? It’s a great question to ask. I say that because it keeps us focused on the real reasons we want what we want. If you want a million dollars, why? It’s probably because you would have the freedom to do what you want whenever you want. If you want to lose 20 lbs., why? It’s most likely because of how good you would feel physical, and the mental satisfaction of the positive looks and compliments you would receive. You want a significant other in your life, why? Because of the feelings of fulfillment and companionship.

Whatever it is you truly desire, there are reasons you have that desire. There are certain positive feelings it would bring if you had it. When you focus on why you want what you want, you bring those feelings to the front of your mind. You then increase your overall vibration to a positive one. If we dig deeper into the Law of Attraction, it states that we manifest what we think about, and even more so, what we feel. So here is the key…focus on the positive feelings you would have if you already had what your desire. Live in those feelings and the positive state they bring. When you do that, it brings you closer and closer to the manifestation of your desire until you actually live it for real.

Do you want to see those millions of dollars sooner? Live in that freedom now. Remember, where the spirit of the Lord is, there IS freedom! Don’t go way above your means, but perhaps find a way to do some of those things you are thinking about doing if you had more money. If you want the weight to come off faster, think positively about yourself NOW! Feel the inner beauty of your being. Buy clothes now that you would buy once the weight is off. Feel good no matter what you are doing. The same is true if you are seeking a relationship. Feel fulfilled NOW!

Whatever it is you desire, ask yourself why. Then focus on those reasons and live in them. If you do this consistently, the other questions of how and where will be answered for you, and your “when” will be sooner than later. I challenge you to try this, and I believe you will be very pleasantly surprised and rewarded. Enjoy the blessings!!


Wake Up From the Dream…And Live in Success

May 21, 2018

Last night I had a dream that I was at work. I have a good reputation there, but in the dream, I was accused of something that may have cost me my job. I knew I was completely innocent, yet I couldn’t think of the words to use to defend myself. I stressed over the interview I would soon have with my boss and colleagues. Just before the meeting began, I woke up.

I remember how relieved I was when I realized this was only a dream. The hurt of being falsely accused, and the worry of what I needed to say to keep my job was all imaginary. It was the middle of the night, but I actually went to the bathroom with a smile on my face as I realized it was just an imaginary reality.

I share this because I have been reading of a lot of “A Course in Miracles” lately. This is one of the main themes of the book. It’s that the circumstances and the past of our lives is really all a dream. It’s only as real as we make it. Any of these past events that we are remembering, we are remembering it now, in the present. The truth that we should be awake to is the presence and power of God and His spirit in our lives now. That is reality. Again, the rest, such as the circumstances, the past, and anything not having to do with God and His Spirit and power, is all a dream.

Please understand, I am not saying to completely give up thoughts about the past, or even things in life that need to be taken care of now. However, we cannot allow ourselves to be haunted by nightmares of the past. If negative things have happened, we can use them as a learning experience to help us in the present. If positive things have happened, we can reflect on them and use them to encourage and sustain us today. However, one of the greatest keys to success is to stay focused on God, His Spirit, and His power in the present moment.

How can we stay present and focused on God? One way is to reflect on the knowledge that He is in everyone and everything. When you see people and things, avoid focusing on and judging the outside appearance. Instead, reflect on the inner, Godly presence. Remember….the Bible says to “seek first the kingdom of God, and all else shall be given to you”. When you seek God in yourself and others, you are setting yourself up to receive all blessings the kingdom of God can offer! Also, I believe you are following God’s command to love your neighbor as yourself. After all, God is in others, as He is in you. When you seek God in this way, you are seeing and being His love!

Another way to stay focused on this Godly reality to is to be thankful. We receive in life what we most focus on. If you are focused on all of the good in your life, you are given more reasons to be thankful. It also keeps your mind occupied on what is real instead of the dreams our circumstances represent.

I have continued to learn and teach this fact…the quality of our circumstances is determined by the quality of our mind. If we focus on God’s truth, goodness, and love, for the most part, that’s what we will experience in our lives. If we dwell in the dream of negative circumstances and allow them to dictate the quality of our thoughts, we will only perpetuate those circumstances.

So my advice is to wake up! Anything outside of God and is will is just a dream. Like me, you can smile after you realize this, and live in an awake state, seeking God, His truth, His power, and His love in your life and the life of others. That’s what life is all about. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


An Exact Definition of Manifestation and How to Use it To Reach Your Goals

July 20, 2016

Those of you who are familiar with the Law of Attraction are familiar with the term manifestation. In fact, it’s the ultimate goal. We keep our minds focused on positive outcomes, make sure we are feeling good and keeping our vibration high so we can “manifest” our greatest desires.

The question I recently pondered and I now ask you is… what exactly is manifestation? And how does knowing the answer to this question help me? Knowing the answers to these questions can make a big difference in your life and help you “manifest” more rapidly.

I recently wrote an article called, “What Exactly is Manifesting?” which answers the questions above. I recommend you check it out to make your goals and desires a reality. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
