Where are You Placing Your Trust?

I was reminded today in a business meeting how much what we believe in impacts what we expect, and ultimately, what we manifest in our lives. This understanding is especially critical during times when we are easily tempted to believe in what we don’t want to manifest. Right now that temptation is financial crisis.

Can you see, though, that if you believe that you are in the midst of a financial crisis, that you are setting the intention to crash financially? Who wants that??? Sure, the stock market is behaving wildly, credit is hard to come by, and many of us are losing money in our investments. Yet markets turn and movement goes in a different direction.

In times like this we tend to forget that we are guided by Mother Nature and not Wall Street. Put your trust in the good of Mother Nature and give yourself permission to reject messages about financial lack. Instead set your intention to prosper. It won’t happen unless you open your mind to the possibility and follow through with the actions that will produce that flow.

Your Home: Is it Supporting Your Visions or Holding You Back?

The other day I sat in on a presentation about the basics of Feng Shui by my charismatic French friend, Sabine Lamoureux. In a very simple way, it changed the way I think about the environment that surrounds me every day. Sabine helped me to see that the energy that we allow to surround us is as influential as the vitamins that we feed our physical bodies. It fuels our moods and acts as a mirror for how we see ourselves. Without this awareness we can sabotage our greatest desires.

Tips for aligning your home with your vision:

  1. Eliminate clutter. It keeps you bogged down with the energy of your past. To make room in your life for new opportunities, you have to make space in your physical energy field.

  2. Get rid of what doesn’t feel good in your environment. It decreases your level of positive energy.

  3. Create an environment that expresses what you want to experience. This isn’t about buying things. It is about surrounding yourself with simple things that represent what you want to achieve, create or become.

Intention: A Practical Science for Consciously Creating Your Life (Part 2)

This article is the second in a two-part series. It follows Intention: A Practical Science for Consciously Creating Your Life (Part 1).

Part 1 of this series briefly discussed the implications of Einstein’s discovery that everything in the universe is made up of the same energy—all of nature is comprised of it, water, stars, your thoughts, your emotions, your pet, your car, your computer, just as starters. We are a field of energy operating in a larger field of energy. We are immersed in a sea of energy.

Recent discoveries about the power of intention are grounded in quantum physics theories first developed in the early part of the twentieth century by Danish physicist Niels Bohr and his German counterpart, Werner Heisenberg. Their conclusions, at the most elementary level, suggest that matter isn’t solid and stable, rather an evolving process of infinite possibilities, that subatomic particles that compose matter exist in a state of potential. In other words, they describe the universe as a single life form of interconnected energy fields in a continuous state of becoming.

These discoveries provide the key to understanding the science of intention as they suggest how thoughts are able to influence outcomes. They suggest that this power to co-create and influence is a law of nature that we have all inherited. This understanding implies that our thoughts are influencing everything around us at every moment. This knowledge is incredibly exciting because it acknowledges just how influential we can be when we remain conscious of the power of intention.

Intention: A Practical Science for Consciously Creating Your Life (Part 1)

What is intention?

Intention is a deliberate attempt to make or influence a change. Unlike desire, which is simply focusing on an outcome, intention includes an executable plan which will lead to a desired outcome.


What has been learned about intention?

Let’s first look briefly at the discoveries which provided the foundation for understanding intention. The classical physics that was invented by people like Isaac Newton in the seventeenth and eighteenth century was based on studying movements of very big objects like planets, cars and mechanical devices in general. Then early in the 20th century, physicists began investigating the behavior of extremely small objects such as subatomic particles. When Newtonian thinking was applied to the very small, the laws that predicted how things would work no longer applied. This is where the study of quantum mechanics was born.

In 1905, Einstein’s formula, E=MC2,
replaced the earlier Newtonian theory that everything in life was made up of solid objects that were attracted to each other by gravity. Einstein’s discovery proved that everything that exists, from the large, to the tiniest of small, consisted of sub atomic particles which, at their core, were made of the same stuff—pure energy.

The Zero Point Field: Science and Spirituality Intersect to Highlight Greatest Discovery in Personal Development

Lynne McTaggart, award winning journalist and author of The Field and The Intention Experiment, has discovered the “holy grail” of personal development through the convergence of science and spirituality. This discovery is the result of her quest to identify an explanation for homeopathy and spiritual healing. So important and intriguing are McTaggart’s discoveries, I feel that they have the potential to change our world—provided we do our part.

Those of us who have studied A Course in Miracles have been taught of a universal connectedness to God that flows through all of life and of an illusionary world that we have created which is founded on the belief in separation, scarcity, and fear.

How interesting that scientists have produced evidence which shows that a field of energy exists that connects everything in the universe, and that each one of us is a part of this energy. They call this field the Zero Point Field. Furthermore, the evidence suggests that we are each like a wave of pulsating energy that is constantly interacting with this field of energy, and that we have the capacity to direct our thoughts to change physical matter. This sure seems to me like two versions of the same story; one is the spiritual law and the other describes the laws of the physical forces. Could this possibly be the mechanics of God that we’re now studying?

I find this subject so exciting and I could go on and on, but I’ve got to stop somewhere. If these ideas intrigue you, I invite you to join me as I explore them more this Wednesday evening on my ACIM Gather Radio segment, Science and the Sonship from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm Pacific time, 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm Eastern time. Meanwhile, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Science Shows the Amazing Benefits of Meditation

http://innerarchitect.com

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been deep in study of the scientific evidence that has come to light that supports many of the spiritual principles that have resonated with me without any hard proof. It has been fascinating and exciting to learn about all the correlations! In particular, I’d like to recommend Lynne McTaggart’s book, The Intention Experiment to anyone interested in learning about this new frontier where science and spirituality come together.

In her book, Lynne McTaggart has taught me much that I didn’t know about meditation. I have viewed meditation as a method for tuning in to my inner wisdom and to connect with divine energy, yet there are so many practical benefits that I am guessing many of us are unaware of. If we were, we might all be clamoring to make it a vital practice in our lives. Here’s what I’ve learned:

Experienced meditators can be more effective in their ability to use their thoughts to effectively influence desired outcomes. Generally speaking, there are two different forms of meditation. Each may produce different brain waves, and consequently offer different benefits:

Concentrative meditation holds attention on the breath, an image, or a sound to still the mind and allow a greater awareness and clarity to emerge. With practice, it appears to enlarge the mechanism by which we receive information and clarify the reception.

By concentrating on focused thoughts, the portion of the brain that handles attention is exercised. This exercise enables its cortical thickness to grow larger. Ordinarily cortical thickness deteriorates with age, yet regular meditation appears to reduce or reverse this process.

Mindfulness meditation involves sitting quietly and being a witness to whatever goes through your mind, not becoming involved or reacting to thoughts, worries, or images. This helps to condition a more calm, clear, and non-reactive state of mind to whatever is happening around and within you.

Studies have shown some other general benefits of meditation to include:

  • Higher levels of gamma waves, which often are associated with feelings of joy
  • A predominance of alpha rhythms, which is the optimal state for the manifestation of your thoughts
  • More coherent brain waves
  • A positive affect on the brain’s reasoning and analytical ability
  • An increase in ability to receive intuitive information, as well as the conscious awareness of it.

Guidance on how to practice either of these types of meditations is enough for two new articles, so I won’t go any further right here. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have in the meantime.
