If we make no effort at all, our thoughts usually scatter in a vast array of directions. They start and stop and move in surprising ways from one second to the next. If we try to follow our thoughts without controlling them, we will be amazed at how truly inconsistent they are. Yet, if we apply our minds to a specific task, especially one that interests us, they gather together and allow us to focus our attention, creating great power and energy. This is what is known as pure thought, because it is undistracted.
The law of attraction—like attracts like—influences all energy, including our thoughts, and this is what makes pure thought so potent. Our undistracted thoughts create a powerful magnet that draws similar energy into our vibrational field. As a result, the longer we are able to hold positive thoughts in our minds, the more powerful the positive energy around us becomes. We don't need to focus on action and controlling so much when we are surrounded by energy that draws what we want toward us. We can simply respond to the opportunities that naturally come our way. When this is the essence of our experience, we can go with the flow, knowing that we will be okay.
If pure thought is a body, it is our emotions that supply the heart that can really bring it to life. Our thoughts and feelings exist in relation to one another, and they form a feedback loop through which they communicate and empower each other. When we hold a thought in our mind without being distracted, we have achieved pure thought. When we have a positive emotional response to that thought, we enable it to dance and move and breathe itself into existence.

anyway, after a couple of weeks of trying out and finetuning my affirmation to aid me in my visualization, this was the affirmation i finally came up with that i was comfortable with and that resonated with me--
Thank you, God, for the $nnnnn.nn already in my life right now, quickly and effortlessly! This, or something better.
-- even as i creatively visualized my self receiving the money in a small bag i already have prepared, and going around paying off accounts happily, and having my kids and i happily boarding the plane to Atlanta and having happy times with Mama and Larry.
as what usually happens in the manifesting process, certain little "signs of land" start appearing. like my receiving in the mail two new credit cards i don't even remember applying for, but whose credit limit would allow me and the kids to already fund our one-way trip to Atlanta!
i said thank you of course to the Universe, and also reminded her that please, no more debts okay, pure income and cash would be so much more appreciated!
then Papa got hospitalized last Jan. 16, and is still in the hospital up to now, from diabetes complications. first, he was just admitted to have his 3 left small toes amputated but ended up with his needing to have his whole left leg amputated and needing a significant amount of blood transfusion. he is still recovering slowly up to now, but he seemed better yesterday, than the last 5 days after the major leg amputation.
anyway, the point is, because of Papa's health crisis, it fell upon me to temporarily manage his finances and make sure they are alright. so my last two weeks have been mostly spent going to banks and dealing with people there and counting money, either for deposit or for withdrawal.
another major "sign of land"! : ) i recognized that early on. i said to my self, thank you God, for this sign of land, further leading me to the manifesting of my heart's desire! i get to practice counting huge sums of money again and feel what it feels like : ), even as i get to practice dealing with bank people again for large sums of money!
still, the money is not my own, but Papa's.
then it just hit me yesterday while i was walking under the noonday sun-- of course, my affirmation has already come true: this is the equivalent of $nnnnn.nn (even 5x more) ALREADY IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW, isn't it?
except that the money is not mine. : ) heehee!!!
ohhhh Universe, youuuuuu!!!
so now i'm further fintetuning my affirmation--
Thank you, God, for the $nnnnn.nn already MINE and in my life right now, quickly and effortlessly! This, or something better!
be careful of what you pray for: be specific!!!
; ) : ) : )

mantras, like the one previously introduced in this blog; prayer, affirmations, vision boards, declarations (like in the previous post) are not magical and powerful in themselves. they are all just tools to help you create the Focus and generate the Feeling that is in line (in alignment) with your Desire/Intention. their power is in how they are able to help you achieve that Focus and Feeling.
so the ideal mantra, prayer, affirmation, etc. is actually the one that you create and that means a lot to you personally, because it has even the added charge of your own unique energies/vibrations.
many books, e-books, courses, teleseminars, etc. abound online and offline on topics like this. they only differ in personality, flavor, methods and tools used. but they all basically follow certain universal Laws (of Manifesting), which themselves have a long tradition throughout time and history, from the Hermetic arts to the science of the Mind and the everyday effective principles discovered by all successful people in their own individual journeys through life.
today, Science has caught up with essentially similar discoveries in the field of quantum physics. if you reflect upon them long and deeply enough, you will realize that they are essentially how Nature works, so in that sense they are actually natural laws, too:
1. Law of Deliberate Creation (Focus) - what you consistently think about, you bring about. what you pay attention to, grows; what you ignore, dies.
2. Law of Attraction (Feeling) - like attracts like. so, become what you desire. be in vibrational alignment with what you desire.
3. Law of Allowing (Allowing) - let go. release it to the Universe and let things happen.
that's basically it.
all other discussions, treatises, courses, etc. -- if you pay enough attention to them-- essentially follow these 3 principles. some focus on one or two to highlight-- some focus on thinking positive, some focus on clearing negative emotions-- but they still follow these basic principles.
actually, once this hit me in the course of my own seeking, journey and growth, i had a fun time identifying and sorting what book, course, talk, etc. that i came across basically emphasizes among these 3 principles. try it, too, and you will see what i mean.
and you will soon discover that the answers are not really out there. the answer is not really on more books to read, more courses to take, or even which "guru" to listen to-- the answers are in you, in your power to decide and to consistently choose to apply these principles in your daily life.
although this was written 6 months ago, i wrote in my diary snippets of this "Declaration" over the course of the last 2 years of further handcrafting my life. i only managed to put them all together here that darkest day in June when, in the depths of my despair, i also resolved to my self that, like Scarlett O'Hara clutching the soil of Tara in her hand, "As God is my witness--" I will not take this like a victim! : )
anyway, i post this here now because i my self am amazed: the life i have now is 90% what this Declaration describes! very soon (as in 6 days later!) after i let go of that old love that wasn't for me and wrote this Declaration, i met Someone Special who's turning out to be a true partner of my mind, heart, spirit (and body : >) and we are in a beautifully growing and deep Love and Friendship-- i'm keeping my fingers crossed. : )
there is power in decreeing, indeed!
so here it is, my Perfect Life, as declared by me! : >
My Perfect Life
(Decreed June 25, 2007)
I am at peace with my self, with who I am, and happy with being authentically me, and growing each moment to be the finest soul I can be, in all ways. I treat other people with honor, honesty and respect, in the same manner that I always expect to be treated with honor, honesty and respect, too.
Children and Family
I take good care of my children and other people placed in my path and in my care, in all ways—physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically, spiritually—the best way I can, and they take good care of me too the best ways they can. We enjoy good, healthy, affirming relationships based on respect, trust, openness and honesty, peace and freedom to let each other be as authentically as each can be, being the best each can be. Our simple rules we live by at home: be honest, be kind, speak gently, and clean up your own mess.
My Twin Flame Soulmate and I are happily married to each other; we are the best of friends and lovers for life! We both enjoy a very good, stable, happy, joyful, healthy, peaceful and abundant Love, Friendship, Marriage and Family Life together, sharing our selves and our lives with each other intimately yet also lovingly allowing each other the freedom to be and grow to be the finest soul each can be. Our love for each other extends to our children and the rest of our family, friends and community. Our love for each other heals and transforms and inspires us both, as well as the lives of those we touch.
I work mainly based from home, writing, communicating, helping people, teaching, traveling all over the world and receiving abundant blessings in material or other forms, enough to take care of my self and my children very comfortably, allowing us to be the best we can be.
My Community: the World
My being authentically me extends its light and gifts to my children and family, to my Twin Flame Soulmate, to my work, and ultimately, to my community and the rest of the world, which I consider my world community. There is no strict division of boundaries, each fund the other, and the world is my home, a happy, peaceful, loving place I make and make with all the people placed in my path and care.
I leave this world someday better than I have found it. My presence in it, my life as I have lived it, is a blessing to all whom I have met.

Many of us have a deep-seated belief that in order to do well in the world, we have to suffer and sacrifice. This commonly held idea stems from a certain mentality, inherited from ancestors who came before us who may have experienced this as true. Beliefs from our own past-life experiences can also make an appearance in this lifetime. This is often the way in which false beliefs take hold and don’t let go, even though they are no longer relevant. We must all live our own lives, in our own time, and learn what is true for us, because very few truths prove valid for all people all the time.
Keeping our minds clear of false notions is not an easy task, as it requires us to first know our beliefs. Very often, these beliefs have settled deep in our unconscious minds where they simply sit unquestioned. Nevertheless, they have an effect on our hearts, our minds, and our reality. These beliefs act on us, creating situations and relationships that we regard as fate, when they are, in fact, simply our unconscious minds manifesting in the external world. As a result, we may not even be aware that we are carrying the burden of a poverty mentality, and we may wonder why we are not manifesting abundance, especially if we know we deserve it. If this is the case, it may be time to look deeper within to see if we can discover the obstacle inside ourselves.
In order to evolve, it is important that we examine the contents of our minds and hearts and get to the root of what we believe about reality. Generally, our concerns of the moment can be trusted to guide our inquiries. If we are not manifesting and maintaining the abundance we know we deserve, then this issue is calling us to look into the hidden corners of our psyches and root out any remaining beliefs that tell us we must suffer and sacrifice in order to do well. Our efforts will take us one more step away from this energy-sapping belief that we no longer need.

i've talked about this in my other blog. some visitors here may visit my other blog too, so this might already be familiar. still, here it is again, The Science of Getting Rich, in capsule form--
There is a universal energy from which all things are made. This energy fills the entire universe.
When you form a thought in your head, you tap into this energy, and you actually create that which you are thinking about.
Mankind has the ability to create a thought and cause the subject of the thought to be created within this field of Universal Energy.
To activate this ability, we must learn to harness our creative mind. Typically, we function with our competitive mind. But to create things with thought, we need to activate the creative mind.
We can come into harmony with this Universal energy through the act of expressing gratitude. Gratitude unifies our mind with this all encompassing Universal energy.
To manifest something new, simply hold an image of what you seek in your mind. And express gratitude to the Universe for having granted this to you. To achieve wealth, apply this same principle - hold a clear vision of the wealth you hope to attain. Then express gratitude that this wealth is coming to you. You must have unwavering faith and devout gratitude.
All that you include in your mental image will come to you through the physical realm - through the process of natural ways such as trade and commerce.
To claim this wealth, you must be active. You must do all that you can do each day to make this vision a reality. Especially strive to deliver to others something of value greater than what they paid you for.
Those who practice these instructions will get rich. And the riches they receive will be in the exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude.

Happy, Prosperous New Year, everyone!

God's Wealth is circulating in my (our) life. God's Wealth flows to me (us) and through me (us) in avalanches of Abundance. All my (our) needs, desires and goals are instantly met, because I am (we are) one with God, and God is my (our) infinite and abundant supply, and God is everything.
on june 8, 2002, i finally walked out on a 10-year sick marriage that wasn't really a marriage in the real sense. at that time, i had my three young kids-- aged 9, 4 and 2-- to take care of on my own as the ex was on belligerent status with support, and saddled with heavy marital debts. knowing him, i cut a quick deal with the ex: "i take the kids, the house and all the debts, you just take the car and leave." of course, he was quick to take the offer.
it has been a long, hard, uphill climb just to get back on my feet again, especially during the first two years. i turned nights into days taking on any extra freelance writing work i could get, just to keep body and soul and my children together. at one point, i almost gave up. one night, after calculating my budget again and seeing how the ends could never possibly meet through my own efforts alone. i looked at my sleeping children contemplating how it might be like if i just put us all to sleep, for good.
thank God i fell asleep (naturally) while contemplating that unnatural thought. that darkest night of my Soul made me finally realize, though, that even if i might have hit rock bottom, my children haven't seemed to have realized and felt it yet, as they remained happy and loving and bright. (throughout the long struggle, i consciously made a supreme effort to keep my fears and anxieties to my self, and stuck my chin up and put up a brave, bold, cheerful, hopeful face with them.)
it struck me then that maybe, it was really just all in the mind-- in my mind particularly. even if we had very little money, they lived happily and healthily with me, so why should i still cling to my fears and worries? times maybe tight but we didn't have to live with tight faces and behaviors, too. we were still free, in that sense, to choose to still live in joy and gratitude, even if and despite of.
this little prayer/mantra above-- along with several other resources i found on the net just to keep my mind diverted from present circumstances and to focus on reaching out for higher, better things and times to come, to sustain hope-- is attributed to Tony Robbins but im not so sure, as i forgot now where i first found it.
anyway, the use of the prayer/mantra is more effective if written at least 20x a day, 10x in the morning and 10x in the evening just before retiring. (one could do more, of course.)
anyway, just to keep myself from totally giving in to despair, i played this little game/experiment with my self by following the instructions (what more could i lose anyway?). and so i wrote the mantra 20x a day in my journal as instructed, even as i was still feeling fearful and anxious everyday.
gradually, though, the physical act of writing it down and focusing on it for at least 20x a day caused changes in me, particularly in my mental state and focus and in my outlook.
the physical act of writing it down made it more and more real, even if just in my mind.
i started thinking, seeing and behaving as if God's Wealth is really in my life, right now.
i started being and feeling more grateful and less fearful. because of the shift in my consciousness and focus, i started seeing more opportunities and doors opening where i would have previously not seen before.
because of this, i started acting more confident, optimistic and proactive, following inspired hunches, keeping faith and continuing to treat people well, despite circumstances and other people's trying behaviors.
more and more, this mantra, along with other tools i learned along the way, helped me clear and heal my self of old, outworn and error thoughts and habits about living life, and living Life Abundantly, even as i developed a deeper, richer spiritual life and relationship with my God.
today, five and a half years later, i am able to take a year's unpaid leave off from my regular job, and just follow my heart, doing what i've always wanted to do-- writing, traveling, enjoying my kids and home and friends, loving and being loved by my Special Someone, totally free to remarry again if i choose to as my previous marriage has been annulled both legally and sacramentally and (surprise, surprise!) even having a friendly, peaceful relationship with the ex (!).
i've also won two national awards along the way for two children's stories i've written and which were subsequently published to critical and market success in my country, aside from having grown two or three more separate but complementary and parallel careers which provide me with multiple streams of income.
now, i'm just basically taking even better care of my self as i discern and explore the next steps and my succeeding Path in Life for me.
i created this blog to share with others that indeed, a Life of Abundance is possible and close at hand!
i also created this blog to share all the many lessons and tools i've learned along the way to create this Abundant Life.
i hope i am able to pay it forward in this way, too.
