We’ve all studied various forms of Manifestation Techniques – from programming crystals to talking to Angels… from positive affirmations to mind training… we’ve even tried ‘magic’… the list goes on and on…
So, my question to you is this: With all this effort, why aren’t you immensely wealthy or won the lottery or married to your SoulMate or live in peace and prosperity… and why haven’t you considered that ALL stems from Spirit… yes, even your material happiness!
Well, most of us feel that it is somehow ‘wrong’ to call upon Spirit for such materialism… most of us shy away from this – we think that Spirit should be reserved for ‘proper conduct’, and that some of our ‘desires’ may be just a little too low down on the scale – after all, why would Spirit be interested in upgrading your kitchen, bathroom, or get you a new car… (O.K., maybe a parking space…)
Yet most of us are programmed to think that there is something wrong to involve Spirit in our (petty) desires… that it should all be reserved for those ‘special miracles’, the miraculous healings / world peace / surviving earthquakes… or just blessing our children (the Good Lord knows they need it, especially today!)
Someone once told me a great secret – simply this: “By myself I do nothing”… and no, he wasn’t advocating a life of sloth or Nubian exploitation… rather, he was pointing out that it is only through Spirit (or with, if you prefer) that we are able to accomplish anything. Yes, there are many Magicians that will loudly declare that it is by their Will that they’re able to achieve success… but, I ask you, at what costs?
(this reminds me of a story of the young man who was soon focused on material success that he willingly paid with his health / happiness / friendship… and even marriage… it all went down the drain… or, as I would say ‘to Hell in a hand-basket’… yep, sounds about right – shades of Faust, what?)
So, what does all this have to do with Manifestation?
Easy – if you do not involve Spirit in your doings, you may well ‘achieve’ it… but you may not be happy with your results… are you ready to pay that price? (remember that whatever you do in this Life will program your next Incarnation accordingly!! Ha! Did you truly think you would get away with it!?)
Now, don’t go off half-cocked, invoking Angels and Devas and whatever Spirit Forms you think you have access to… there is both ‘Proper Protocol’, as well as the Good Manners of Proper Training… after all, didn’t your Mom teach you not to speak with your mouth full?
Which brings me to this month’s classes – we’ll be reviewing the proper use of the Law of Attraction (so you don’t fall on your face… again), figure out this whole deal about ‘Success’, and even ‘Happiness’… will examine Personal Transformation, and some other Laws of Manifestation…
So – if you are ready for a brand new beginning, here it is… if not… well, there’s always the next Life… (your choice, really…)
