(Warning: Some of the things mentioned in this post may seem controversial but I am speaking from my own experience and explaining things based on my beliefs, as always. If your beliefs are different, good for you. They are correct for you in your world as much as my beliefs are correct for me in my world. Remember to always accept and embrace the beliefs that serve you in your reality. If some of the things I believe in resonate with you, you are welcome to use them for your own good.)
I have been away for a while, I know. Way longer than I planned. I was doing my best to get my mental conversations in order and to test the law. Sometimes this is exactly what you have to do. You have to just walk away from whatever you are involved in, if that is what will help you to take your focus off of things that are happening in your physical reality right now, if they are contrary to the change you wish to manifest. This is one of the important steps when it comes to manifesting and I am sure you already know it. Taking your attention away from something, metaphorically kills it and helps create space for a brand new reality to take its place.
I am not a newbie to the Law and yet I still do this. I would recommend this to anybody who is noticing that they are getting lost in their own physical reality instead of getting lost in their imagination. That’s the way it’s supposed to be: you are supposed to be lost in your imagination, right? But sometimes, that is hard, especially when your outside world is showing the complete opposite of that. It doesn’t matter what you are trying to manifest, be it an SP or a job. Your current reality is showing you the results of your past thoughts and if those thoughts were contradictory to what you want to see in your reality, and they very likely are, it is time to walk away from it. Turn from it completely. But do this in your awareness! Stop interacting with things that are contradicting to your desired end result, in your awareness.
This is something that can be pretty hard in the beginning, however, it is not impossible. I remember when I was a newbie and I couldn’t even comprehend what turning away from your current reality meant, yet, on some level I already knew and understood that that is what I need to do if I want for the things to change. Sometimes all it takes is an affirmation. Other times, it takes walking away from social media and ceasing any interactions with your current reality.
“You are told, “Seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven and all things shall be added unto you.” Get first the consciousness of the things that you are seeking and leave the things alone. This is what is meant by “Ye shall decree a thing and it shall come to pass.”At Your Command by Neville Goddard
Now that we got that over with, let’s talk about what I really wanted to talk about and the thing that I have been contemplating for a while.
If you are like me and you decided to adopt the belief that you are the only person with any consciousness in your reality, you can no longer view the world the same way you have viewed it before. It is necessary to accept that you are responsible for what you are seeing around you. That is the only way that all of this will make sense. You can deny and say that not everyone is you pushed out, it’s impossible, how could this be, but here’s the thing: everyone and everything exists in your awareness.
To explain it further, this can be applied to both people around you but also people who are complete strangers to you at this point in time. For the sake of this post, let’s take an example of a person that you are madly in love with. You are close with them. You can clearly see how they are you pushed out. They even say things you want them to say, without much effort. If you believe in the Law, then you know that this is how it’s supposed to be. But how do we apply this to the wider audience? What about people who are not close to you? What about people that you don’t even know exist, but you know they have to exist somewhere because you believe in the statistics and the statistics say that there are billions of people on this planet?
Well, to tell you the truth, this is the part where I used to trip up as well before I embraced the belief that everything exists in my awareness and that this doesn’t apply only to people close to me. It applies to the whole entire world. So what am I keeping in my awareness? How come the world seemed so much more cruel in the past than it does now? Well, when I was a teenager I believed all kinds of things. I believed the world was a cruel place and so it was. With time, my perception has changed. I started believing that there is good in everything and everyone. Once I accepted that and acknowledged it, I started seeing it in my outside world. Did I do it consciously? No, not at the time, but it happened anyway. I didn’t know about the Law when I did it but hey! It’s the Law. It’s always working. You don’t need to be aware of it in order for it to work!
To get to the point and give you an example, I believe that most of us keep negative things in our awareness without revising them or taking care of them through a mental diet. Are you aware of the existence of rape and terrorism? Well… Maybe you aren’t responsible for pulling the trigger the next time there is a terrorist attack but you are responsible seeing as that is what you are keeping in your awareness. You accepted that such things exist and so they continue existing in your world. It may be tough to comprehend. It may be even tougher to accept this. But, again, everything exists in your awareness.
I am not blaming you for the “bad” stuff that happens in the world. Actually, I only want to make you aware that literally the only reason for seeing the things that you are seeing in your world is the fact that you keep them alive in your awareness.
To make it simpler, let’s take an example of you waking up in your bed. Nothing too complicated. Just think about it. Do you have to imagine having a bed every day? Do you have to imagine having the ability to sleep just to get some rest in your physical body? No, you do not. These things are the things that you have accepted in your awareness. I know I have a bed and I know I can sleep in it anytime I want. Don’t you? This same principle applies to the rest of the world. Are you aware that other people exist and that you aren’t alone in the world? Bet you are. That’s why people continue to exist in your world. Are you also aware that people can be “good” or “evil”, that there are rapists, terrorists and thieves but also people who are a “definition” of goodness, whatever that may be in your world? Well, congratulations! You have found the answer for why these people exist in your reality.
Let me tell you a little story about something that happened to me. I used to download things from the internet illegally for years. Music, films, games… You name it. And you know what? Even though the first thing that the person who familiarized me with this specific website told me to always hide my IP address and yadda, yadda, yadda, I completely forgot that he told me this. It didn’t seem relevant at all. Almost 10 years went by and my cousin got a fine in the mail. He was being charged a pretty big amount of money for downloading stuff from the same website that I have been using. Oh well… This was a “wake-up-call”. This was the moment when my attention shifted. Of course I was paranoid and thought I was going to get charged as well so I googled it and found out that downloading from this website was ALWAYS illegal. So how come I was never charged? Well… That never existed in my awareness. What, me? Getting a fine for downloading something? Never! I am from a small country, nobody is paying attention to me! That was my belief and this belief saved me from losing money. However, I also believed that people get charged for downloading pirated stuff and so I experienced it. I saw it happen to somebody because I always believed that these things happen only to other people. Isn’t that funny? It sure is to me now that I think about it. My faith had saved me! I never acknowledged the opposite of it.
So, how do we change this? How do we get rid of thieves and corrupt politicians? Well, for once… You ignore them.
“Things live only as long as I am aware of being them.”At Your Command by Neville Goddard
You know, this great sentence and revelation doesn’t apply only to you and the things that you are. It also applies to your entire world. Let’s remind ourselves: how do we get rid of a third party or some other annoying person? By ignoring them! However, this is way more complex than that. What is a third party? A third party is a result of my own insecurities. A third party is an embodiment of my own insecurities which I have come to accept in my awareness. Just like that, being charged for an illegal download means that I am aware of my own fear of being charged. Well, I have this fear that I am going to pay a fine because I downloaded something illegally and of course I cannot charge myself so somebody else has to play the role. Whenever other people are involved, this is exactly what they are doing: they are playing a role! They are aiding you with your manifestation. What does it matter to them that you are about to lose thousands of dollars or become homeless? It doesn’t matter at all. You gave them a role and they are compelled to play it out. You called this thing into existence by being aware of it.
How do you ignore the things that you do not want to see? My favourite way, and this probably applies to most of you as well, is a mental diet. You go on a mental diet, affirm the opposite whenever a doubt comes up, and with time, things start showing up. Things start moving and you realize that you have always been the operand power in your own world. That thing that just disappeared from your world? You created it. You were behind that. You chose to call it into existence. You chose to experience it. You may not have said, “Why, my dear subconscious mind, I love myself very much and I choose to lose a thousand dollars, would you mind helping me?” No! You were simply aware that this exists.
You imagine all day long. Surely, you don’t imagine yourself with an empty bank account. You are aware that that could happen. You do something illegal and you are aware that you could be caught so you start thinking about it and creating a story. You create stories all day long in your head! Once you are done telling yourself this story, unless you revise it, you risk experiencing it. You may be opposed to this idea, but after experimenting for so long, I have come to the conclusion that every thought has the potential to manifest. Every single story that you tell yourself has the potential to manifest. You can take care of this with the mental diet and this is where we get to the topic of positive thinking. Positive thinking is the “safe ground” when it comes to manifesting. If you train yourself to think positively, you will for sure manifest a bunch of positive outcomes for yourself. Oh well… It costs you nothing, does it? Yes, I know! Your habitual way of thinking is negative and you love drama so much you don’t want to give it up! But if you want to change your life, you have to change your perspective on things. For one person, being blocked by somebody on social media is the end of the world. They raise their hands and give up. They’re done. For others, being blocked is a blessing in disguise. They remove their attention from social media and all the unwanted things that they’ve manifested so far, take responsibility for it, “go into their room, close the door and pray to their Father”. (Matthew 6:6) In other words, they get inspired to finally close the door to their outside world and completely dedicate themselves to the work in their inside world, the work that needs to be done in order for them to experience changes. This is why, when you interpret something in a positive way, there is no way that you will fail. You will see it unfold in a positive way.
See how simple this is? You may be sitting there thinking, “She must be crazy, there is no way this is so simple.” But it is! Why make it complicated when you can keep it simple and see the results. Trust me, I too have complicated things and what good did that do me? Absolutely none. I would keep myself stuck in the same place for YEARS because my judgement was based on what I was seeing in my outside world.
The last thing that I want to talk about is always ending your thoughts on a positive note. This is something that comes up in the mental diet and you may not even realize that you are doing it. It’s funny how I have been thinking about this for a few days and then yummmbrownies posted about it on our subreddit! (P.S. If you are reading this, I saw your message too late and you already deleted your account by the time I read it, I am sorry! And I know you will achieve your greatest dreams in this lifetime, you are a great person and deserve it! Whether you are active on our subreddit or not, although I wish you were… Pfft.)
Whatever you are doing, end your thoughts on a positive note. A coach I know shared this analogy and I absolutely love it. Let’s say you are sitting in a restaurant, ordering a pizza. Your first choice is pizza with ham and extra cheese. You change your mind and decide to call back the waiter and tell them to add some pineapple to your pizza. However, you suddenly look at the next table and you see the person there eating this gorgeous Quattro Formaggio pizza. Look at that cheese! It looks delicious! Ok, fine, you shall order that pizza instead. So, what will the waiter do? Will they bring you all three of these pizzas? That would be perfect, wouldn’t it, however, you know it won’t happen, don’t get your hopes high… Will they bring you pizza with ham and extra cheese? Will they bring you pizza with ham, extra cheese and pineapple? No-oh! They will bring you Quattro Formaggio pizza! That was your last order and that is what you will get! That’s the best kind of pizza anyway, so why would you order anything else… And technically speaking, what you did here was revise your order. You revise your thoughts the same way. “Oh no, I am going to lose a thousand dollars… No, I am safe and secure, I never lose any money or have to pay any fines!” Still drawing on the pizza analogy, the conclusion is that your subconscious will devise the means to bring you the last thing that you mentioned.
I am absolutely sure that having a belief like this could do you no harm and that’s why I recommend you adopting it as your own. Of course, some beliefs or fears are stubborn and won’t go away just like that. You will have to affirm the opposite again and again. But with time, you will start to believe it.
Do you believe that your thoughts create? Well then, stop thinking things that do not serve you. And yes… It’s as simple as that.
