I AM THAT, I AM
“All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the ‘renewing of the mind' is desire. You must want to be different [and intend to be] before you can begin to change yourself. Then you must make your future dream a present fact. You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are already that person. If this assumption is persisted in until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable.” -Neville Goddard
Upon the suggestion of my mum, I began listening to recordings by renowned metaphysical teacher Neville Goddard, who's work in the realm of the Law of Attraction is groundbreaking and will make you feel like you've been given an absolute gift. No kidding, this shit is insane and is responsible for a massive release I have felt over the past week. I went into the start of this month conscious about what it was it could open up, past emotional wounds, feelings of inadequacy and shaky ground. I don't need any more of that, so beginning August with this new tool to utilise on a day to day basis; the tool of Imagination and thinking Fourth Dimensionally. It's really good and they're very worth the 40 minutes. These amazing recordings are from the 40's, so a good transatlantic will keep it light and fresh.
Basically, in this concept of thinking fourth dimensionally and utilising imagination for creation, you essentially take advantage of your brain and the vibrations of your body; your brain doesn't know the difference between imagination and reality - if you believe it enough your brain feels that whatever you're feeling is actually occurring. So you utilise imagination, vivid imagination to harness your innate ability to create. Basically, ya know?
So my practice has shifted, I've started giving myself triggers; things that trigger my imagination in my day to day life. I've gone back to a "strict" daily morning meditation, allowing me to ground through my base chakras into the earth before I start the day ahead, and allowing gratitude to permeate my body on a cellular level.
So, August ain't that bad after all. Just fucking cold.
"(Your mind) becomes the prepared ground where seeds, your desires, can take root and grow into manifestation"
"You can either be attentive to the limitations and feed these and make them mountains, or you can be attentive to your desires; but to become attentive you must assume you are already that which you wanted to be."
