THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
How can you have it, if you don't see yourself having it?
I was making a decision about what I was going to write about and Spirit kept leading me back to this topic. Oftentimes we give up hope on the things that we would love to have and enjoy because we can't see ourselves having it. Honestly, can you picture yourself having what you want, desire?
We shouldn't feel guilty about anything that we are wanting and setting out to achieve. I don't think that God put us here for us not to enjoy our experiences. What is wrong with you having what you want? Why can't you have what you want? I will tell you this though, that answer is inside of each and every one of us. There is a reason that we self-sabotage. I have self-sabotaged, and I had to start asking myself why, going inside to do some deep work. We haven't had and enjoyed certain things and circumstances in so long that they seem to be far away in the distance. We have been hurt, disappointed, and messed on, so we have lost faith in path.
What we would love to have appears to be unachievable.
For one, healthy companionship and relationships, appear to be unattainable to us. With the current dating scene and mindset of the collective, it seems that people are oversexed and dwelling in their lower half. There is going to come a time when these same people will regret the behaviors that they are participating in. There is a saying by Oscar Wilde, "Youth is wasted on the young." It's not just the young though, it's wasted on the middle aged, and the healthy. Because people buy into a sense that they're untouchable and nothing can happen to them. They think that things never change and will always be the same. They do things for so long that they start to believe that they are exempt from karma.
I feel and not just feel, but I know that it takes some serious inner work to attract some serious people into your life. If you are playing games they will play games with you, now your in a foolish time wasting game. For any relationship to last and have growing power, each individual has to do their part in their inner work. Outer work won't cut it, I don't care what you look like, how well you perform romantically, and how much money you have, it won't provide you with a peaceful, love fulfilling, and lasting relationship. Only awareness of yourself, what you do, your inner state, and your love for self will sustain a relationship.
So what do I meant by inner work? Inner work is shadow work. What is shadow work? To work on the face that we don't show, the dark side of ourself, that holds the vengeance, pain, and anger. It's to work on ourselves to raise our vibrational frequencies so that we can attract the energies that we want in our lives. I do this inner work every day. I seclude myself to this inner work, praying, meditating, journaling, affirmations, chanting, and focusing on what's going on in the inside of me. I can't deal with anything on the outside of me until I know what's happening in the inner me. As we vibrate higher, we have to start eliminating some of the conversations that we partake in, some of the places that we go, and the people that we keep company with. Since we mirror each other unconsciously, when we keep the company of complainers, we will start to feel bad about ourselves, and not understand where the irritation is coming from. EVERYTHING IS ENERGY! We have so much energy on us that doesn't even belong to us.
When we are fully aware that everything is energy, we can watch the way that we maneuver in our lives. If you know that someone is in a bad mood, you are going to stay away from them right? Well the subtle energies inside of us, the irritations, aggravations, frustrations, and pain, keep people from gravitating towards us, especially the happy people. There are so many people swimming around in the lower watered energies, you would have to swim above water so that you can see the people who are not sinking. Happy people attract other happy people. Loving people attract other loving people. Secure people attract other secure people. It doesn't matter how secure you appear to be, if you're carrying around open wounds, people will see it through your energy body.
It will come out in your conversation, because we can't help ourselves but to talk about our pain, because we feel it, which in turn reinforces and powers the old dead painful situation. Moving on is for our greatest benefit, making us fly lighter, because if we carry around a heaviness, people will see us weighed down, we will feel it too. We will attract the opposite of what we want in our lives. When we focus on what we don't want, WE WILL ATTRACT THAT very thing. Our focus, our attention is the key, whatever we are giving our attention to becomes our reality, our story.
If we are focused on not attracting a narcissistic, lower behaving mate, then we can't be focusing on attracting that, or fearing that we will. This takes much practice, conscious practice, solitude, and talking to God every day. Narcissistic people are attracted to good hearted empathetic people. If we have programmed in our subconscious mind that all men are untrustworthy and women are treacherous, we will get just that. Whatever we tell our subconscious mind, it will give more of it to us. We have to say uplifting things in affirmation, even if we don't believe them to be true.
Our subconscious mind will send us the experiences that we believe, because it gives us what we are focused on whether it be desired or not. It's easy to allow our minds to fall on the majority of the collective crowd that so many things are difficult to attain. If we change our imagination, our visualizations, our words, and stay the hell away from naysayers, we can change our lives. People's relationships and marriages have come out of slumps all because they changed their inner view. It's the private and personal work that comes out in the public. People always know what you've been doing by the way you act.
For instance, if I say, "that'll never happen, then it will never happen." If I say, and I mean say with deep feeling, "Every man that I am with cheats on me, they can't be trusted." You can be in a room full of faithful and available men, and one unfaithful and unavailable man, and he will find you through the crowd, because you're vibrating and attracting him towards you. It's where your heart is focused, it's what your heart believes. What you believe you will receive. Just because we believe it, doesn't make it true. We must break destructive beliefs.
"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Proverbs 23:7.
I have been called crazy for saying that I am rich. I have been looked at like I was insane for saying that I am wealthy. That is what I believe, it is engrained in my heart that I am wealthy, I am healthy, and I am enjoying an adventurous life. It's okay for me for people to think that I am crazy and insane, or whatever, I am not focused on that. When it has been said to me, I always agree with them, it's funny to me, because it lets me know that they have to see it, they lack real faith. It's okay because you have to lose your mind to find your peace. You have to lose your mind in a place like this to find your awareness, to see that people are walking around in a fog, wasting so much valuable time.
Time, the only thing that we can't get back is more valuable than money to me. Time is the reason why I stay to myself, because I use that time to do inner work, to write, to release and express, and stay involved with the activities that will take me in the direction that I want to flow. I can do the inner work, I can "study to show myself approved unto God, a workman needed not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 15. My Grandmother drilled that scripture in my mind, it's stuck there forever, and I didn't understand why that scripture was so important to her, but now I truly overstand, and now it is important to me.
I see myself having it, I feel myself having it, and I know that I have it. I know that it is waiting on me. I don't have to close my eyes to see me having it, I don't give focus to if other people think that I can have it, I don't think that other people pay attention to me at all, because I don't put my observations on them. Matter does not become real until we observe it. This means that if we aren't focused on it, it's not a part of our world. When I do close my eyes for meditation, I go straight into filling my heart center with a bright light, full of love and gratitude visualizing me having and doing the things that I love.
I see myself having pleasant relationships with others, I don't play out arguments in my mind. If I feel that I have to argue with a person, I stay away from them. I am not afraid, I just don't want that to be a part of my experience. Have you ever heard that we live in a virtual reality? Well if that's the case, we do have some creative control in our lives. We can control what and who we get involved with. I don't try to force people to get on my station. I am okay if I am on my station all by myself. I am studying to show myself approval unto God, and when I see you, I will see the God in you, not to criticize you, not to insult you, or treat you unkind, but to treat you like you are God represented in the flesh. We are all God's representatives, God's children.
If Sally can have it, it's because Sally pictured herself having it, she believes she can have it. If Johnny can buy it, it's because he imagined himself buying it. Your vision for yourself has to be so blocked off and spiritually protected, that nothing or no one can penetrate through it with its doubts. Just like we envision the worse things happening to us, we can envision the greatest experiences happening for us. This is what I do. I have visualized with colors, emotions, and everything the worse things happening to me, and they did. I have visualized arguments with my husband that came true. I have visualized discord with him and held onto arguments and offenses making a mess of my relationship with him. As I began to do the inner work, I realized how much of a part that I was playing in creating the mess that we were in.
If I could visualize discord, arguments, and confusion, letting lower energies in, what is called the devil, into my mind and imagination, then surely I could visualize harmony, peace, love, and happiness between us. And that is just what I did, and I wrote it to, I didn't believe what I was writing at first, but as time went by, and I continued to write it, it started happening for me.
We must recognize and acknowledge the smallest achievements made in whatever we are setting out to do. I noticed day by day I began to improve internally, and I stopped saying, "you, you, you, and started saying, I, I, I." I started putting an I in front of everything that I was putting a you in front of. When we began to repair our internal states, we repair everything else in our lives. We must be able to see it.
When you write down what you want to see in the present moment, you remember it, you begin to believe it, and you are making yourself ready to receive it. Many of us aren't receiving the things that we want because we are not open to receive it. We are still shut off by our pain, wounds, and past hurts. We have to put more trust in God to protect us and lead, and guide us.
I tell God, "I thank you God for protecting me and guiding my path." I know that whatever I need to know, God will bring it to me, I don't have to go searching for it. When you walk close to God and someone tries to deceive you, and treat you wrong, they turn out to deceive themselves, and bring disharmony into their own path.
We have to be able to see whatever it is that we are wanting to have and to do. We have to stop discrediting and underestimating our imagination. It is imagination that is the true intelligence, it is a skill, and we can become elites at the skill if we practice it every chance we get. Practice makes perfect and practice makes sure that we won't forget. Imagination is muscle memory for us, all we have to do is activate it.

As yourself this question, "Can I see myself having it?" Whatever that it is for you, be completely honest with yourself on what you can see. If you can't see yourself having it, that means that you have some inner work to do. What is getting between you and this thing? Are you keeping the company of people who see this thing to be unattainable? Are you keeping the company of people dwelling in misery?
I stay away from people who complain about lack, because I don't want my mind to go into a state of thinking the same things. I have to counteract those conversations with, "I have more than enough for my every day needs." I leave people alone so that they can do their own inner reflections. Listening to people complain about their lack and problems will interrupt your thoughts for your vision. You must guard all sides of your mind. You have to guard your vision. You don't have to tell your vision to anyone, just let it marinate inside of you, smelling all of its wonderful aromas, feeling all of its pleasures, and anticipating all of its excitement.
Failure is only in our mind. There is no failure, there are lessons and experiences.
"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but is imagination." Albert Einstein.
I am super duper grateful for each and every one of you lighting my soul on fire!
I have so much more to come and I am glad that you are with me! Thank you so much!
I love you,
