The metaphor that comes to mind when thinking of my life and what is being accomplished is: Phoenix. Why “Phoenix?” Because it feels like I’m just beneath the surface and need to break free by rising up and stepping up and into the person I’m meant to be: My best self.

I’ve spent too much time acquiring knowledge and not enough living life based on what I know. I’m gifted; creative, to the point where I’ve lived years in “imagination” vs. the present. The promise of a better tomorrow for some can be very seductive and addictive and I’ve experienced both.

Now, I’m stripped bare; faced with real changes and opportunities that no amount of wishing or dreaming can accomplish. There is real work to do and that work must be done in the present, right now.

Objective: Point blank: I want a Future that I’d want to live in.

Why is this important? It’s probably obvious to most people doing personal development work: I’m awake and can’t pretend not to know what I know. Once I learned (and accepted) that I create my own heaven or hell – that’s it: you then have to go about the business of creating that heaven or hell. I want to experience what a great life looks and feels like.

Why now? It’s like the Universe has said: “He’s still not getting it. Take away his rose-colored glasses; in fact, shatter them.” Okay, message received: choose.

I choose to fight for it…

Bob Doyle asks: “How have you been stopped before? (what are the blocks?)” I almost laughed out loud at that question, but I sobered up and wrote it down in big fat capital letters.

The “blocks” have been many: not really being grateful for what I have; not really operating from a place of love; FEAR in getting x result – FEAR in not getting x result and finally the big “B” (now, not the 5-letter word but the six-letter one: BELIEF).

The other blocks were: Relying too much on my Intellect and Getting access to great information, learning and knowledge – WHILE NOT APPLYING IT in my life.

“Who looks outside; dreams. Who looks inside; awakes.” – C. Jung

What do I want from the readers of this blog: Well, if the spirit moves you and there is a thought or suggestion that comes to mind that you think might help me, then I would appreciate hearing about it. My primary plan this year forward is to keep myself open to helping others – with no agenda or reciprocation necessary. It’s about energy right now, and the fastest way for me to get this done is to help others – at least this is my belief. If I can do this, I should be able to attract the right things in my life.

Namaste,

Chris

This past weekend I gave myself the gift of death. For a few days, I gave up the future, all notions of a “future” – faced with working on a “life plan” I found that I just couldn’t (or wouldn’t) scribe any notion of the future, even a year out. I discovered something – having a future is to live in a mild state of sadness.

I’ve never had a future that manifested as envisioned – it was always different, and sometimes presented pleasures previously unimagined – and pain previously never experienced. But it’s always the same: What time is it? Now Where are you? Here.

And the past? – Like tags in a blog, recalling the past is 100% inaccurate to what was actually lived, experienced. The past and the future are used by the conscious mind to maintain firm, absolute control over our Identity. And it doesn’t matter if our identity was built by chance (situations, circumstances, opinions of others) or on purpose. There is a code, a master program that is running our life and dictating the experiences we are having and that determines the meanings we place on those experiences.

So, I gave myself a gift this weekend – I decided to forget about the future and instead focused on one question: “If I can be anyone, anything, who would I be?” I’m still working on this answer, but in asking the question I gained a sense of freedom I haven’t ever experienced as an adult. With no future, I’m forced to really see and live in the present. And believe me when I tell you there are things in the present which are less than desirable-no surprise there.

The surprise was seeing quite a few things that are actually pretty amazing – These things have been around me all this time, but in seeing the present vs living in imagination, it was like a fog lifted and the things in my life that give me joy pleasure suddenly “popped” into my awareness. I rediscovered the beauty of the persian art I have on my walls – paintings I haven’t really looked at – or even acknowledge for 5 years now; photo books from trips I’ve made to Africa, Canada and St. Thomas; a pretty substantial library filled with books on healing, psychology, personal development and believe it or not poetry.

It was like a blindfold was ripped off my eyes and I could see all of this great “wealth” that surrounds me.

It’s clear that as I gain clarity in my life and face and embrace the present moment, the Universe in return is determined to reveal the abundance that already surrounds me…

My life plan will reveal itself to me, when I finish answering the question: If I can be anyone, anything, who would I be?

Good Morning:

Today, I’m focusing on generating value and attracting financial abundance into my life. In fact, I may spend the remainder of the year doing so. In preparation, I went looking at some of my old journals dealing with abundance and these declarations leaped off the page at me. Since a lot of us are focused on resolving lack and attracting abundance, I’m sharing my notes.

A Gentle Suggestion:

DO NOT READ THESE DECLARATIONS YET. Instead, print out 2 copies of this blog post. Then:

1. Find a quite place where for the next 10 minutes you won’t be disturbed (no emails, cell phones, people, whatever)
2. WIth a pen in hand, take one of the copies and slowly read each declaration.
3. After reading a declaration, make a note if your immediate reaction was (“agree,” “bull,” “no way,” “not me” or “can’t happen”) also pay particular attention to whether or not you have a strong reaction positively or negatively (“this is me” “I deserve this” “I don’t deserve this” etc.).
4. It’s okay if you get emotional – JUST KEEP GOING

When you’ve gone through the list, take a minute and settle yourself, then calmly go back through the list. On the 2nd copy, place a check mark next to any declaration you’ve indicated that you are aligned with. Draw a small square next to those declarations that you had an adverse or negative reaction to and finally place and “X” next to the declarations that you felt you aren’t deserving off.

You’ve just completed a rough roadmap, which indicates the degree that you are aligned to financial abundance.

This is basic, and of course you can create addtional declarations, but this is a good way to test. To resolve, use any number of great methods found throughout BLC – meditation, EFT, Psych-K, whatever. Just close the gap…

Namaste,

Chris

The Eleventh Meditation: Immortality

I know that I am pure spirit, deathless, birthless, changeless, and eternal. I am not body; I am not Conscious Mind; I am not ego. I am sense of Self only, consciousness, awareness, unadulterated being. The presence that animates all life is within me, is altogether the real me.

I am using my body for a purpose, as an expression of an idea, and when the idea is fully expressed, through my work and my mission, I shall return again to unity with universal Self, leaving body and ego behind. I do not confuse my body and my ego with what I truly am. My body is simply an instrument for my expression, and my ego is simply memory of physical experience.

Returning to infinity and unity, I shall need neither body nor ego. I am free of the domination of the ego. It is not my true self, is simply an illusion necessary to finiteness and the perception of space and time. I turn away from the ego, withdraw into the depths of my being to the immortal consciousness that lies within. Here in this magic center my word is law. I need only speak it with faith and conviction, and it will manifest in my life. I am calm and serene, sure and unfaltering, for my roots are in eternity.

All the things of life shall change and pass away, but I shall never pass away, for wherever life is I shall be, one with Universal Subconscious Mind. I need not strive or strain to attain immortality, nor fear punishment, nor aspire for reward.

The Kingdom of Heaven awaits all, the wise, the foolish, the sinner, and the saint, for we are all one in reality, clothed in different forms in this moment of incarnation. I do not fear death, for by it, I attain the consciousness of higher Self. Neither do I invite death, for it must wait until my work is done. I forsake the ego, perceive self in Self, see the majesty, the grandeur, the immortality of the power that dwells within.

The Tenth Meditation: Health

My body is a manifestation of my knowledge of myself, and my true self is spirit, is consciousness only, and is invisible. Other people see me not; they see but my body. It is only I who know myself, and this knowledge returns to me in my health and in the things of my life. Therefore I affirm that my spirit is perfect, that I am one with the great Self of the universe.

The energy of this great Self permeates my being, cleanses me of all impurities of the flesh, restores every function of my body to harmony. There is perfect elimination, perfect assimilation. My entire being is spiritual, and my body is quickened into new life with the perception of this great truth.

I surrender myself to the wisdom and guidance of Universal Subconscious Mind. I become one with the purpose of Spirit, and this mighty purpose animates my body, projects into every aspect of my life. There is no obstruction, no barrier, no limitation in my mind. I see only peace, power, vigor, and plenty.

I open my heart to love, and love flows through every atom and pore of my body, energizing, molding, coordinating. By healing my mind of limitation and lack and negative thinking, I automatically heal my body. At the center of my being I perceive limitless, deathless, ageless spirit, perfect in its beauty, perfect in its function; this spirit becomes manifest in my body and in my affairs. When I am faced with apparent confusion, I surrender it, give over each of my problems and worries to that which has the perfect solution and in which there is absolute clarity.

I take my thoughts from the limitless reaches of Universal Subconscious Mind, never from the world around me. I do not think responsively, I think originally; I do not react, I act. I am never a victim of circumstances, for each thing of my life proceeds from out of my thoughts, which move always in accord with Spirit.

The Ninth Meditation: Prosperity

The infinite creative power of Universal Subconscious Mind lies within me. I attune myself, remove all barriers from my thought, and become receptive to the purposes of Spirit. I know that my life is great and good when I perform service with love. The right ideas are delivered to me, I accept them, and Subconscious Mind provides me with the means of bringing them into my world.

I know that all things spring from Universal Mind, which is infinitely abundant. Lack and limitation are errors of thinking, and I banish them from my consciousness. There can be no lack. I need only let Universal Mind express itself through me, and my world is filled with creativeness and achievement and prosperity; my goals will be delivered to me, for they will be the goals of Spirit, who never fails.

Whatever my task I perform it with love, for I know that when I serve another I serve the purpose of a greater design. All about me I see the law of mutual exchange; therefore I give as I would receive.

I know that abundance and prosperity are mental conditions; I create them on the plane of mind with complete trust and confidence that they will manifest in my life. I refuse to accept undesirable circumstance as having final reality. First cause is mental and is never found in the world about me. A mighty truth is at the center of my consciousness, where no work is difficult, where peace always reigns, where all things are possible.

I know that life is a journey which must be traveled step by step, and I am patient, enjoying the wonder of the way, with unshakeable faith in my destination. I submit my will, knowing that success will come when I fulfill the indwelling Self.

The answers are in the subconscious mind. Over the next few days, I’ll share the meditations, excerpted from U.S. Andersen’s Three Magic Words. Enjoy…

The First Meditation: Overcoming the Lock

I know that I am pure spirit, that I always have been and that I always will be.
There is inside me a place of confidence and quietness and security where all things are known and understood.

This is the Universal Mind, Spirit, of which I am a part and which responds to me as I ask of it.

This universal mind knows the answer to all of my problems, and even now the answers are speeding their way to me.

I needn’t struggle for them; I needn’t worry or strive for them. When the time comes, the answers will be there.
I give my problems to the great mind of Spirit; I let go of them, confident that the correct answers will return to me when they are needed.

Through the great law of attraction, everything in life that I need for my work and fulfillment will come to me.
It is not necessary that I strain about this, only believe. For in the strength of my belief, my faith will make it so.

I see the hand of divine intelligence all about me, in the flower, the tree, the brook, the meadow.
I know that the intelligence that created all these things is in me and around me and that I can call upon it for my slightest need.

I know that my body is a manifestation of pure spirit and that spirit is perfect; therefore my body is perfect also.
I enjoy life, for each day brings a constant demonstration of the power and wonder of the universe and myself.
I am confident, I am serene, I am sure.

No matter what obstacle or undesirable circumstance crosses my path, I refuse to accept it, for it is nothing but an illusion. There can be no obstacle or undesirable circumstance to the mind of Spirit, which is in me, and around me, and serves me now.
