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.
"When I Stopped Wanting it Started Happening"
I affirmed that it already is. I accept what is. I realized that wanting wouldn't bring me anymore happiness. After I get I will no longer desire, then what's next? More desire? Happiness happens on the inside.
The above was my Instagram post on this topic, now I shall write about it.
We want and want, we desire and when we don't receive, we feel like we are suffering, sometimes like we are being punished. We are of flesh, it is natural for us to crave and want, want for more. If we are not focused on what we have already, being in a state of gratitude for what we have, how do we expect to receive more?
Have you ever wanted something really bad, and nothing happened, but you kept wanting and almost wishing for it, it seems to be unattainable, right? When we are in a constant state of wanting, we are sending a signal to the Universe that we don't have enough. We are saying that we are lacking, and if we are focused on what we don't have, that's what we will have, what we don't have. In this state of mind of wanting, we will live a life of lack. You only acquire more of what you truly want when you are living in a state of gratitude about it. Whatever we give our attention to with feelings of gratitude, it grows in abundance. We don't have to ask, all we have to do is affirm.
Again, when we ask, and hold onto it wanting, we are living out of the present moment. Once we ask, it's time to let go, and start the process of faith, living and feeling like it's already happened. We get focused on what we want, doing everything that we can to get it, after we have already asked. This is the time to release it, so that it can come to us. When we live in the present moment, we realize that everything happens there and we can state things as we look for them to be. For example, "I am grateful that I travel the world blogging to you all of my wonderful experiences and adventure." "I am grateful to be enjoying perfect health." " I am grateful that God's wealth flows to me in avalanches of abundance." "I am grateful that God speaks through me."
It doesn't matter if what you're saying you're grateful for is true, it will become true. The subconscious mind only knows the present moment, and whatever we think about, it gives us more of it. So, if we keep thinking about the past, we will bring the past into the present moment. If we think about the future constantly, the subconscious mind will go with us in the future. This can make us anxious with endless possibilities. It can cause us to worry, worrying about what is to come, what may come, and what may happen, and we will feel the effects of it physically and physiologically as if it's happening now. If we think in the past or future, It will feel real, like it's happening now.
The subconscious mind operates in the present moment, and delivers from that point, so if you are saying that you are wealthy, successful, happy, and in love, that's exactly what the subconscious will give to you. Whatever you keep saying and thinking. will manifest in the present moment.
I affirm, I speak it, and I believe it when I speak it, so I watch what I speak. I have trained my mind and my words to be in the present moment. I slip at times, but I catch my fall every time, and correct myself. I use the words I am about 90,000 times a day, okay I am exaggerating a bit. :) But, I do say I am often. Because when we say "I am" we are speaking from Infinite Spirit, from the Omnipresent that lives within us. I watch what I say, when I say I am. I am love. I am happy. I am healthy. I am grateful. I say these all day, they are my mantras. Distractions come to distract, that's their job, and I am getting better and better everyday at noticing the distractions.
Thoughts come and distract you. We thin about the past, drudging up old painful regretful memories, playing them out like a bad movie. We try to analyze the past and how we could have done it differently, what could have been different, what could we change. When we can't change anything, but we can be sure to not repeat the same painful situations.
Everything that we speak is an affirmation. Words are important even if we think that when we are speaking something, it stops there, it's no big deal, even jokingly, we are wrong, the words that we speak have power, and they travel. Our words bring about self-fulfilling prophecies. I watch what I say, I watch what I keep thinking, and if I continue to think something that is no good for me, I go and meditate, I pray, I command my subconscious mind to let it go. I will do this again and again until I don't think about it anymore, but I will get rid of it.
The thing about being in a sleeping state is that you don't remember much about what you have done or have been doing, but as you begin to awaken to your higher self inside, you begin to remember things that you would have liked to forget. We don't forget anything. The subconscious mind is like a tape recorder. Now we can be wrong about the memory and how it truly happened. It is said that most of our memories didn't happen like we tell the story, we have used our imaginations to shape the story and fill in the gaps.
I stopped wanting, and let go to start receiving what flows to me. What God has for me, is for me, and no one can take it. I had to realize that I am where I am supposed to be, doing what I am supposed to be doing, so that I can learn this lesson, and leave with golden wisdom. I have wanted and wanted, and nothing happened. I just gave power to the lack that I was feeling, and took the focus having gratitude for what I already have.
I have created a lack of things that I was wanting when all I had to do was stop wanting it. You have heard the statement, "when you stop wanting it, it will come to you." You ever stop looking for something and you find it, casually, when not looking for it, it shows up. Some of us want certain things in our lives so much so, that we are pushing them further away from us. We are pushing them away because we are not affirming that we already have them. We are not showing gratitude for them.
I relax and ride in this boat, cruising along, with peace inside of me, in a state of gratitude for being able to have this experience. I am grateful for this blogging experience, I am grateful for you being a part of this experience.
