The biggest thing to know about the Universe is that it can be whatever you want it to be, without limit! The only limit is the limit that you put on it. You put a limit on the Universe every time you try to tell the Universe that it cannot do this, or that it cannot do that. It’s like taking a piece of clay and only making squares and triangles out of it over and over again. The reality is that a piece of clay can be whatever you want to make out of it, the limit is in your imagination. If all you can see are squares and triangles, then that’s all you will get! If, however, you are willing to open and expand your mind to the possibilities, then you will begin to see other possibilities. And, once you can see other possibilities, then you can begin to create other possibilities for yourself. For instance, you can sculpt a boat, a face, a bird, the sun, the moon, a car, a person, an animal, a tree, a gold bar, abstract art, a leaf, a church, a clock, a gremlin, a mountain, or anything that you can possibly imagine. This is the nature of clay, it can be molded or shaped into just about anything that you can imagine within your mind. Do you not see what I’m getting at here? The clay contains within it the nature of the very Universe itself in that it holds limitless possibility. Oh sure, easy for me to say, right? Your saying that’s wonderful, but how do I actualize it within my life? How do I recapture the magic? How do I reignite the spark? How do I feel the vital life force flow within me again? How do I not simply acknowledge, but rather, how do I embody this concept? Well, stay with me and let’s see where this journey takes us.
In the beginning
The ability to create, with your mind and heart, stems from the ability to be able to tap into the power of creation itself. The power of creation is the driving force of God, the Universe, and Everything in existence. Consciousness wishes to experience itself, so who are you to deny it? Human beings, in their ultimate arrogance, assume that they are here to fix and quantify consciousness. You are not here to quantify or categorize anything, you are here to create everything. You are here to create that which you wish to experience. Then, once you have done that, you may wish to help others do the same. However, until you have fulfilled your heart’s desire, you will be of no help to anyone, so quit trying! That is the nature of the unhealed healer, those who attempt to fix that which does not need to be fixed. By denying themselves the joy of creating, they become broken. Then, with a broken heart and a heavy head, they dutifully trudge off to ‘serve humanity’ as if that is their true calling. There may be some joy, some reward for them in this path, but it will never bring fulfillment as long as they are denying themselves their heart’s desire. You are a creator, so create for God’s sake!
Before you began to take a ‘should’ all over yourself and then, all over everyone else, you were more free spirited. Earlier on in life, you were more in alignment with the ebb and flow of the Universe, more in alignment with the true nature of the Universe, limitlessness.
Creators create things, they don’t fix them
When you are in alignment with the Nature of the Universe, you are a powerful creator in every sense of the word “creator.” This means that you inherently recognize your own limitlessness while you gaze into the eternity of creation, the still latent possibilities of the Universe. Your point of power lies in your attention, your focus. What are you paying attention to right now? Are you with me here right now or are you wandering off somewhere to the land of “should”? Your point of power is your focused attention, wherever it goes your energy flows. The problem is that too often all you do is focus your attention on what is right in front of you. When you do this all you are doing is molding the clay of the Universe into a square again. Then, when you are worrying about the future, based upon the present, you are now shaping the Universe into a triangle again. So, all you are getting are squares and triangles, even though that clay can be shaped into so many more things. Can you imagine if all of the great artists in the world thought this way? What if their imagination was as trapped as your own? The world would be such a bleak place if we all created our reality from the land of “should”. The great architect does not see a hole that needs to be filled when she looks at a plot of land in a downtown metropolis. Instead, she see’s a beautiful, magnificent building within her mind’s eye. She see’s the possibility, not just a spot for another square building.
The automobile maker starts within his mind, thinking of the possibilities. He is not thinking that it should be this way or it should be that way, he is in the joy of creation-letting his mind go. Then, an image begins to form within his mind and he puts pencil to paper. When he is done he has something completely new, never before seen with the human eye. Then, he takes this image and creates a three dimensional graphic out of it on the computer. Slowly but surely, the idea begins to manifest. Eventually, this idea goes to the factory and a first car, a concept car, is built. Bam, a manifestation has occurred! The most amazing part of this process is that it was effortless, and it was effortless because it was inspired through limitless capacity. This takes place where the imagination intersects with the Universe, from here a spark is created and the combustion of manifestation is ignited. All great ideas happen this way, where limitless imagination taps into the limitlessness of the Universe and is fired by the joy of creation. The Universe gets very excited at the joy this new creation is going to bring to millions of other souls all experiencing themselves through the medium of creation. The Universe absolutely loves to create things to experience. The Universe does not get excited by Soul’s who deny themselves their birthright of limitlessness. You are a Creator God, it’s time to bring your unique contribution to humanity, yes?
The Dating Game
Here is a fun area to experience and create, dating! Going on a first date with someone is one of the most exciting experiences that you can have. There is the thrill of the unknown, the thrill of what is yet to be experienced, the thrill of wondering what is going to happen, and the thrill of making a connection with someone new. There are also fears as well, the fear of rejection, the fear of humiliation, and the fear of not making a connection. In general, both parties are hoping to make this special connection, even if just for a moment, or perhaps for longer. There is much eagerness and expectation as each person begins to formulate potential probable realities within their imagination about interacting with this other person. Here, the imagination has begun to be utilized in an unconscious way. If you wake up for a second, you can begin to see how the imagination is the key to tapping into the limitless possibilities of the Universe. When you think about this other person you have begun to form and shape your clay, you are creating mental clay sculptures of how and what you want this meeting to be. The question is, are you trying to create a square or triangle out of them again? While you are tapping into this magnificent energy, this unlimited potential, this amazing opportunity, where is your focus?
In general, your focus is on what you are wanting and hoping from this other person, of course. However, are you truly conscious of what you are wanting? Have you thought about what you do not want? If you have had some relationships already, then you have some material to work with. However, perhaps you have not been on many dates or had many relationships, so it may be a bit more difficult to know what you are wanting. Then, perhaps it is best to just plow ahead and enjoy the experience moment by moment. However, for those people who have established what they do not want, they have the raw materials to begin creating a relationship that may be more suitable for their wants.
What is it that you do not want? It is so good to create a list of things that you do not want, because this can really help you to be clear about what you do want. This is also a great step to take in becoming a conscious creator. Conscious creators are those people who create only exactly what they want. Wow, what a concept, yes? Do you like the idea? What if you could think ahead and focus on what you wanted and, as a result, you had the most wonderful perfect date that you could possibly imagine? Wouldn’t that be worth a little effort, a few scribbles on some paper, and a little bit of focusing your attention? I think so and I think you agree. If you don’t then you may not yet be ready to become a conscious creator.
How many thoughts am I thinking?
How many thoughts do you think in a day? How about in an hour, a minute, or a second? There are different theories about the number of thoughts we are able to think in a moment’s time, but it usually centers around one thousand thoughts a minute, or something akin to that. I would not be surprised to find out at some point in the future that we think closer to a thousand thoughts a second, that we are only conscious of around 1% of those thoughts. In any case, your mind is constantly spinning, constantly thinking, and constantly trying to move you lifewards. The problem is that you were not properly trained in the beginning, to think first and act second. Instead, you were trained to act first, think second, then react third. In this way you are confronting reality as if it happened to you when, in actuality, you thought it first. Even at birth, you thought yourself into being. This is a hard one to prove, but you did. You thought yourself right into this physical environment and right into this life and right into it with your parents. You didn’t win them in a lottery, you agreed to meet them here, to have fun together.
The problem is that your parents were not properly trained either, and then they pass this false training on to you. So, the cycle is perpetuated over each generation, and we gradually lose focus as to our purpose, which is to create. When you have so many people ‘shoulding’ all over you, it’s hard not to think that your job is to ‘should’ on someone else. Yet, this is not your job, at all. Your job is to have fun, to be creative, and to bring forth new ideas into being. In the process, you have the option of enjoying other people’s creations as well. What a joyous celebration it all is when you realize that we are all here to have fun with each other!
When you and I step into a room together, something very unique begins to happen. Our vibrational set points begin to merge with each other in what could otherwise be referred to as vibrational relativity. This means that on the quantum, non-physical level, we begin to merge with each other energetically. This is not to say that we are physically touching, rather you and I begin to share information at a subatomic level. The result is that we synch up our vibrations to form one, bigger, dominant vibration. Now, we are magnetic to different possibilities than if we were by ourselves, alone.
This vibrational relativity can have certain advantages and certain disadvantages. One advantage is that, together, you are a more powerful magnet. You have a great point of attraction when you are together. This means, that if you are of the mind to create something together, you can work more quickly. However, if you are not in agreement about how you want to do things with each other or someone else, this can be troublesome for you. It does not feel good to synch up your vibration with someone who does not either feel good by themselves, or feel good to you. You may begin to take on some of these feelings if you spend more time with this person and as a result, feel less and less good as time goes on.
This is why it is so important to always be in touch with your feelings, because your feelings will tell you if someone is a good match for you. In other words, you know ahead of time, whether or not your time spent with another person will be of value to you or not. This is because, at the non-physical level, your feelings are tuned into the quantum field of possibility where everything and everyone exists. As soon as your attention is upon something, you will get a feeling about whether or not this person or situation is a good vibrational match for you. It’s only when we ignore our feelings that we get into trouble. The good news is, however, that you can tune into your inner guidance any time you like. In other words, if your inner guidance or feeling power has been covered with years of limiting thinking and negative beliefs, it’s never too late to turn it all around and get in touch with your own inner intelligence to begin living the life you want.
Someone may say to you, “You hurt my feelings!” In actuality though, this is impossible. You can only hurt your own feelings, or another way to say it is that you can only choose to be hurt by what you believe is supposed to hurt you. This is why only certain scenarios are painful to you and others are not, because you have decided that one thing should cause you pain and the other shouldn’t. You have taken on all of these beliefs over a period of years, or over the course of your lifetime, that do not move you lifewards. In fact, they move you deathwards, which means that they block the natural flow of your energy and expansion. Any time you allow your emotions to be dictated by someone else you have taken a step towards your own death. This means that you are allowing someone else to control your flow of vital life force, to stunt it’s flow into your body.
Eventually, you will get to the point where you feel ill if you persist in allowing outside circumstances and people to dictate how you feel about yourself and your life. I have seen people in these scenarios, they have become completely helpless to the whims of society. Some of them cannot bear to bump elbows with people, others cannot tolerate the smell of a perfume on the wind. Some of them will burst into tears at the first sign of constructive feedback, leaving no room for ego diminishment and growth. Can you imagine living a life where you are at the complete mercy of the outside world? The struggles that your every day life would entail are unimaginable, to say the least.
Your authentic power lies underneath all of your push button, negative emotions and limiting beliefs. Under all of these judgments and beliefs about the world lies the source to your unlimited power, the very power of creation itself. You would not recognize it, yet inherent within it is the dormant power of an atom bomb awaiting your command.
The key to your authentic power
The key to your authentic power is in your feeling, your ability to get in tune with your feelings. So many of you mistake this for your emotional wounds and hyper sensitivities, which it most certainly is not. Your authentic power lies in your ability to listen to your feeling power and then follow where it leads you. What you do not realize is that your feeling power always leads you in the direction of the greatest amount of life force. Also, not to be mistaken with your feeling power, is the feeling that you should be doing something. It’s very simple, what feels good to you? What feels right? Whatever feels good or brings about a good feeling is what is going to provide the greatest amount of vital life force for you.
Authentic power comes from within you, not without. Thus, trying to run around and manipulate physical things in the physical world will not yield the results that you desire, unless you are following your feeling power. Otherwise you are just running about like a chicken with it’s head cut off, no direction, no purpose, trying to accomplish something to receive some sort of validation. Unfortunately, no amount of external validation will ever make you feel complete or whole. So, now, after you have been running around in circles for who knows how long, your project is still incomplete. On top of that, you have not received the recognition and validation that you were hoping for. So what are you left with? You are left with one thing and one thing only, a time for change. That change begins when you decide you are going to follow your feelings, that is the only way. Quit thinking that you know best, you do not. Your feelings do, so follow them and you just stay out of it.
And then…after all that…why don’t you go out on a date with the Universe, after all, you’ve kept it waiting long enough haven’t you?
