The universe is your playground and you and only you hold you back from the life of riches you truly desire having. Your universe, big or small, revolves around you whether or not you feel you take a big or small part in it, you contribute more then you know.

You influence your world, what goes on in it, the people in it, who comes and goes in it and who stays or leaves. You have the most say in the matter and if you are not taking charge of your life then it goes on autopilot and you less to say about it.

You create your world starting with your thoughts and emotions and the actions you take and all  combined create what you see. Such as it may be, will ultimately lead you to take whatever action(s) you take, if your knowledge about things and how they work doesn’t change, your results wont either.

As a direct result of that your reality is very unlikely to change, until you are made aware of the control you hold over your reality. You are the creator and if you want abundance in your reality you have create it and release the reverse.

Abundance is at the edge of everyone’s reality, you need to realize what kind of a world your thoughts and emotions create. Take some time to become aware of the thoughts you think on a day to day basis and not only that but pay attention to your true feelings in anything.

Learn to change the thoughts and emotions from lack and limitation to positive abundance and spend time inviting that in. Just by simply paying attention to how your thoughts can limit you and at times are limiting in and of themselves you change your result.

If you push it abundance away with your thoughts and feelings, you can just as easily invite it in back in with positivity. You need to realize the trouble is not always on the surface and if you find it hard to believe or are uncomfortable believing in something, image what it would feel like to be, have or do that.

It takes a while to believe, but after you realize the simple fact of how you create, it will become easier to notice. As I said before though it may not be on the surface that you are having trouble, because your subconscious mind can cause you just as much trouble.

Your subconscious mind runs on an otherwise unconscious level that you will be pretty unaware of and it can sabotage you. If you come to a point where your desire is within reach and things get messed up for you it’s a good indication of a subconscious belief blocking you.

In this case you can look back over the years to find the source of the problem to find out why you have trouble in this area. The problem usually lies deep within the mind and is usually there because of something someone told you about yourself that isn’t true.

It was just something that was said and you took it as a belief about yourself, but when you find it and realize it isn’t who you are. You can ask yourself what good it has done for you and since it limits you, there isn’t any and you can release it and replace it with a belief that WILL serve you.

Remember that the universe is your playground and it is what you make it to be and you can change it at any time. Make it dance to your rhythm, nothing has to be any certain way unless you choose for it to be so, just as you give any belief you hold power by believing in it.

Want it to work for you? Choose the thoughts, feelings and beliefs that will make it what you want it to be. Be clear about what you want and you get it as clear as you make it.

Ego friend or foe? October 21, 2009

Just recently I did some research on the subject of ego to get a better understanding of it and get someone else’s take on it. One thing I have to say is that if you do not befriend ego it can take over and run the whole show for you, with or without your say so.

Ego is really good at sabotaging your manifesting efforts with upstream thoughts; where you can feel that if you don’t get some certain things done you’re not moving forward. You might feel stuck in place not making progress.

When working but not at one my set goals it can leave you feeling that you are you’re not doing anything important. Ego usually has you doing things that you might not want to do simply to make the ego image of you seem complete.

John Eaton of Reverse thinking describes ego as {a false idea about what and who you are. It is an idea you took over from other people. It is never who you really are it is only what you “think” you are, but do not actually see yourself because of ego getting in the way.

Ego turns up in people’s lives in many different ways and forms and does so differently for everyone. Although there is one thing that many people hold on a collective level, they go after
Material things because it makes the ego happy for a while.

It worries about things and stresses about what hasn’t been done yet, it acts as a driving force to get things done. Ego likes or wants to be young beautiful or good looking, smart and  of course it always wants to be successful so it pushes you onward always.

“Your ego is a false idea about what and who you are. It is an idea you took over from other people.”

It is no wonder that some want to be free of it or transcend it although however knowing all that I know about it I would rather align with it. You can treat it like a naughty child that did something wrong and is going to be grounded for it, it is a part of you like it or not.

You might think of it as the dark side of you and try to hide it away or worse yet try to hide from it and pretend it doesn’t exist. Align with it because it IS a part of you and you can work together with it you just have to learn to tell when it is trying to run the show.

1. Be present to your thoughts and know when it feels counter productive, going up stream. Feeling to hard.

2. Be aware of the reasons why you want to do things, is it because you want to impress others?

3. Pay attention to feelings of being left out or left behind others, it can bring resentment along with it for the ride. It is only another way ego plays its hand in your life.

4. Don’t take things personally, a favorite quote is “What others think of you is none of your business” only ego cares what others think of you. You’re authentic knows is secure in itself and what others say or think do not matter.

5. Constantly remind yourself that you are in this moment right where you need to be, you know the things you need to know.

It might seem like your dark side that you keep a locked up secret from others like a part of you that you don’t like. Maybe you feel that angry is somehow wrong or showing sadness is an unwanted thing so you hide it away from the world.

That ma not necessary be your dark side but you might feel that ego is like having a dark side so you don’t want to accept it. Accepting it is the best thing you can do, everyone has one and it’s not really a bad thing, I would suggest making it more of a welcomed part of you.

One way I suggest doing this is an exercise that intuitive guide and spiritual teacher Sonia Choquette suggests, called naming it. Make your ego a pet and give it a name, pick any animal you want that way it is no longer thought of as bad but as a cute pet that has a name.

Believe me you this works really great because whenever I know that ego is trying to have it’s say over things I do. I think of it as a cute animal and do things a little differently so that everything aligns with both authentic self and ego pet.
