Gerald David – Virgin and Child with Four Angels
Dear ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to the last episode of the Manifestation Trilogy, a mesmerizing spiritual masterpiece dedicated to Success and Prosperity, just in time for the second eclipse of January in the sign of Leo, which marks the grand finale of a challenging eclipse season dating back to 2017. It would be wonderful for all of us to perform a self-awareness exercise and quietly think back of the recurrent theme for the past two years, perhaps of a personal or professional domain which needed special attention, improvement and growth, which has been coming into light especially during planetary events such as full moons and eclipses.
Taking into consideration the subject I chose to dedicate my Time, Attention and Energy through this blog post, while wrapping up the Manifestation Trilogy, my reccuring theme was Success and the large spectrum of emotions governed by its achievement, one of them being the fear of success.
I am aware most people fear failure but since this particular word does not resonate with my system of beliefs, I have to admit I have been standing in my own path to success for the past few years for fear I would loose the privileges of being (care)free and doing whatever I want, in front of what I erroneously considered to be “serious” responsibility.
It was revealed to me through the Spiritual Laws book written by Kurt Tepperwein that I might have overreacted and erroneously assumed so based on the examples around me because life is ultimately a dance, just a game we effortlessly play during our mission on Earth, if we respect and live by the Laws of the Universe, an initiative which I resonate with profoundly.
I have been experimenting with life by exploring its endless possibilities and therefore deepening my wisdom and understanding through the Power of Choice and the Law of Action and Reaction. The truth is, in order to disolve our programmed tendency towards attachment, by reaching to the core of (Higher) Self, the Essence or the Divine Source of Being, we must peel off all forms of attachment, which we are aware to be a great source of sorrow and suffering, as it consciously sabotages the “Art of Letting Go” gracefully and the choice of going “with the flow” – for the past few years I chose a lifestyle I could leave at any second without looking back and trust me, it is a truly rewarding feeling simply to know I CAN.
“There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.”
– Ray Goforth
Now, talking about the great eclipse of the 20/21st of January and the Great Power of Manifestation, can you imagine I was trying to remember the name of this beautiful instrument (the hang drum) when one of my FB friends sent a video to me via private message with him playing it? Synchronicity is at its best during this time – I invite you all to sharpen your senses and gift of intuition while observing how reality elegantly unfolds.
While I am playing hang drum music, drinking black coffee and burning palo santo, I would also like to share last night’s dream prophecy, which involved a black cat with no eyes and ears (numb senses) and a group of mice (little annoyances) my parents (divine intuition) discovered while cleaning (revelation) in the little lobby (acquaintances) of the house I inherited from my grandparents (The Self). After the cat’s failed attempts to enter the house (The Soul) and bother one of my dogs, Happy or Joy (wellfare), she led the mice out of the garage and left. Symbolically, that is wonderful news!
“So be sure when you step,
Step with care and great tact.
And remember that life’s
A Great Balancing Act.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed)
Kid, you’ll move mountains.”
– Dr. Seuss
I also dreamt of how people (souls) would emerge from the sea (birth) leaving their horses behind (incarnation), while someone (ancestral knowledge) explained to me how each is being given a knife (to cut anything which no longer serves them) and a gun (to defend themselves) prior to reaching the shores. It was quite an interesting dream, so rich in meaning, so abundant in symbols, a fabulous experimentation of my own beliefs towards life, especially since my situation was dramatically different, as I saw myself floating on a inflatable mattress (effortlesly), with a big wheel of cheese and one of bread (abundance).
Wow, so many reasons to be grateful, most importantly kind and understanding towards everyone which walks on its own destiny path, so different than mine.
“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
– Bessie Anderson Stanley
The Law of Success
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
– Napoleon Hill
Success follows very simple rules, even though we know and apply them or not. All of our successes or so called “failures” are evidence of following these rules.
Success is successive, it follows things which already happened. Please be aware it is called “success” and not “struggle”, “effort”, “run”, nor “appeal”, “speech” and not even “negotiation”. In other words, in order to experience success we don’t have to struggle, pray or negotiate. A simple thought has consequences. Our own act of being can be thought of as success.
Prior to something succeeding, there is always something preceding. Anytime someone does something, the consequences of its act occur at the level of “doing”, “having” and “being”. Not only what we do has consequences, but also what we have and what we are. Even prior to an event succeeding, it is clear what will follow, because what is preceding determines what will succeed. For a conscious creator, success does not solely mean letting something follow through but allowing an intentional result or a certain effect to succeed.
We are always 100% successful. No matter what we do, something will always succeed. That something always corresponds to the cause but not necessarily to our intention. What we wish for, urgently need or desperately want might not necessarily follow, but what we have provoked, independently if we like it or not. Once the cause and intention complement one another – when we project exactly the cause which corresponds to the intention – the desired success must definitely follow.
“Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.”
– Francis Chan
We receive exactly what we have provoked. Not more, nor less and nothing else. For this reason, there is no such thing as undeserved luck or suffering, but only cause and effect. The effect of what succeeds always corresponds to the cause. Which means we can recognize what we have provoked prior to it succeeding, consciously or unconsciously. Every thought, every feeling, every word and every action is a cause, therefore it will attract its corresponding effect, independently to it being desired or not. Every circumstance, every result, every situation, every accident or every encounter can be caused. There is always a cause at first – we can cause anything, including success.
“You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.”
– Michael Jordan
Life has no possibility to allow something to succeed which does not match the causes we project. Life only reacts to our indications, to the “orders” we have placed. Situations, circumstances, encounters, accidents, successes, fate – everything follows our indications, being a consequence of them. Thinking about lack or limitations is not a fact but an indication, an order. These are the common misunderstandings. At any moment, we can manifest any quantity of anything we want. The truth is ready to bring on anything we cause and let it become our reality. We can turn anything into success, win any game possible.
In every moment, we have the opportunity to provoke a new cause for a totally different effect to follow. By wanting a well-determined effect, we must provoke a well-determined cause. We don’t even have to choose what we want. After a choice there is no other decision to be taken. For example, we can choose if we want to live prosperously or not. After this decision there is no other – only clearly defined steps, indications and precise orders to life serving the decision. We must cause only what corresponds to our initial decision. Every thought, feeling, word and action is a cause which returns to us as result.
“The universe doesn’t give you what you ask for with your thoughts – it gives you what you demand with your actions.”
– Steve Maraboli
What happens to us is directly proportional to our belief. Beliefs create reality. If we cannot handle them consciously, reality withdraws itself from our control. Through the conscious choice of our beliefs, we can determine our reality. When we do not determine our beliefs consciously, our prior beliefs generate the future. We all live by beliefs which have become reality. The present belief creates tomorrow’s reality and inforces the present state. An important step to self-awareness is talking a look at our beliefs through the obvious life conditions which make them visible. Our beliefs determine if, what, when and how something will happen. Our beliefs also determine how long it takes. The interior success determines the exterior one. The so called “failures” are just intermediate results; through their transformation in success we can win any game. Any waste of the past can become a fertilizer for the future. It is not about wanting success (which can be an indication and command itself), it is about us becoming a success, leading to us having it.
“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”
– Dale Carnegie
Every struggle demonstrates there can be an easier way to do it. Having success does not require more effort than not having it, but it is a lot more fun. The act of provoking a good cause or a wrong one has the same energetic costs. A lot of people believe one must work hard in order to have success. Hard work is not a cause for success. Anyone owning a perfect skill performs it effortlessly. Of course, a long and diligent period of time invested is required for fine tuning, but no hard work. Diligence provokes happiness, hard work doesn’t. We shall never work hard a single day of our lives from now on, but take a payed vacation, as we allow ourselves to be well-paid for whatever makes us happy. Think about it: when we start working hard, we cease to be creative and productive. Life can be leashed through play only.
“Success is getting what you want.
Happiness is wanting what you get.”
– Dale Carnegie
As above, so below. Success can be achieved but it can also be prevented. We are winners by nature, life did not plan for us to be otherwise. Winners constantly step out. They know they will be successful and since they are convinced about it, they always win. Winners find a solution for every challenge. Winning is a habit. Losers are those who have lost their winner mentality. We must consciously loose anything which does not belong to us: fury, stress, fear, envy, vanity, delay, self-pity, revenge, ego, agression, dissapointment, erroneous mental programmes, worry, sensitivity, doubt, anger, judgement, insincerity.
We must become aware of our transmittal power. What do we transmit and what do we attract? Do we transmit as winners? Everything pushes us forward if we get it right. We can transform anything into success and win any game.
“The good news is that the moment you decide that what you know is more important than what you have been taught to believe, you will have shifted gears in your quest for abundance. Success comes from within, not from without.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
We can have it all. According to the law of energy preservation, energy is never lost. Energy driven with patience will overcome any obstacle and must lead to the intended result, if we do not give up. If we can generate lack with the power of our thoughts, we can also create abundance, prosperity and fullfilment. Because we are 100% successful in any endeavor, we determine by the choice of cause to provoke the results life must manifest. Anything is possible. The key to success is self confidence.
“Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.”
– Joyce Brothers
To live like a winner requires the focus of attention towards success and solutions. The majority of people focus their attention on difficulties and problems, mental activity which allows their subconscious to create new problems. This is what makes life difficult. Even when we focus our cerebral activity on other causes, these won’t be fullfilled because our subconscious will fight against them, maintaining our creative power focused 24/7 on problems.
It now becomes easy to consciously focus our attention on the important objectives in our life: success, health, harmonious relationships, spiritual development, enlightenment, living according to the way this new tendency will manifest itself. This is the right attitude which transforms any victim into a conscious creator of all circumstances. The current situation, whether difficult or hopeless, is unimportant because in any moment change can be initiated. We don’t need anyone’s help or a savior because we have everything we need in order to live.
For example, if we focus on our body, then we imediately feel strength and vitality, tranquility, confidence – all the things we focus our attention towards. Through changing the object of our attention, we refocus our life and in the same time we refocus our subconscious, channeling the attention towards our creative power, the behavior, situations, coincidences and encounters we wish for, or better said, towards our good luck.
“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
Everthing happens effortlessly, and if it does not, this only proves there is a easier way to do it. Life always follows the path of minimum effort, meaning it is economic from an energetic point of view. Whenever we are in the state of relaxation, our most important ideas occur. Creativity and inspiration cannot be forced upon. They are results of comfort and rest, of the playful spirit life is all about. Life is easy, carefree, harmonious and full of love. Let’s observe nature for example. What is heavy in nature? Is it hard for a butterfly to fly? Or for a bird? Nature does not try to grow, it just does. If things are hard for us, it is only because we have decided this at a conscious or unconscious level.
“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.”
– Steve Maraboli
The Spiritual Dimension of Success. To be successful comes naturally. In a certain sense, it is hardly possible not to be successful. However, it depends on learning how to coordonate the results of our activity with our intention. This fine tuning can only be achieved spiritually. There will always be errors, as long as the intention of our ego does not resonate with our soul’s intention. Every “failure” is a message: “you are on the right path – you just haven’t achieved the final purpose yet.”
For the success(ful) intent of our soul it is necessary to: learn, love unconditionally, savor life, live happily, always rediscover and reinvent ourselves, live our luck and be happy, make others happy, recognize the meaning of life and live it, be connected to everyone and everything.
Our soul’s intentions of success have nothing to do with material possessions and are way different from those coming from our Ego.,The rules of life work in such a way that if we follow Ego’s intentions, life will become a stressful fight which marks a redundant path, unable to guarantee peace and happiness. Our most sacred wishes always lead back to our soul. Following its intention and path will make life happy, enthusiastic, exciting, euphoric and passionate. When we live through this perspective, we are success. Whatever we live resonates with our souls, even though it does not always resonate with our ego. Anything we live is our real intention and it is a success, therefore we live in the spiritual dimension of success.
“Spending time with God is the key to our strength and success in all areas of life. Be sure that you never try to work God into your schedule, but always work your schedule around Him.”
– Joyce Meyer
What does it teach me?
“Success means we go to sleep at night knowing that our talents and ablities were used in a way that served others.”
– Marianne Williamson
Success is a state of mind, a mentality, a choice and a gift from birth. Coming into this life is a success, the experimentation of every thought, mood, feeling, situation, “accident”, encounter is triggered consciously and unconsciously into our reality by the power of our thoughts and actions and so is success.
The gift of life is a success. Every lesson we are taught in this life lays a brick to the foundation of our success. The more we live in accordance with our soul’s mission, vision and values, the more successful we are. The only block on the path to our success is ourselves – outdated programs of thinking and negative feelings or self-talk.
We determine success by the quality of our thoughts and actions. The high quality of what precedes the outcome determines the circumstances and quality of what succeeds towards the achievement of a certain goal or the realization of success. We must become success in order to have it. The state of being precedes the state of having therefore training the winner mentality will certainly lead to experiencing success.
Conscious choices and actions will more likely determine the desired outcome. Success comes easy – all we need is a strong sense of purpose, focus and diligence towards the goal. Anything is possible. Anyone is successful. Success requires taking responsibility. Life is a game, not a struggle. There is no such thing as “failures” but indicators we are on the right path and must proceed until the goal is achieved. It all depends on not giving up.
We must always learn something new and keep redefining ourselves. There are no such things as problems but opportunities. We must learn how to lead – discussions, situations, relationships, enterprises, people, life itself. Any criticism is a compliment and a help. Life is not a fight nor a struggle. Everything comes easy when we are having the right frame of mind.
“And will you succeed?
Yes indeed, yes indeed!
