The 13 Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate – Cacao Ceremony Time!


The 13 Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate – Cacao Ceremony Time! (haga clic aquí para español).

Do you know that chocolate is actually medicine?

How cool is that?

It is one of the most powerful, gentle facilitators, teachers and guides on the planet – and it is delicious too!  

The Ancient Mayans and Aztecs used Chocolate for Spiritual and Ceremonial purposes. In its purest form (unlike much of the chocolate available in the mainstream), it is a powerful assistant for ‘inner work’, creative guidance and so much more.

Read on to discover how this delicious superfood can help you!

The 13 Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate – Cacao Ceremony Time – And Connecting with ‘The Spirit of Cacao’…

13. HEART OPENER

Chocolate opens the heart and allows for a deeper, authentic love based connection with yourself, others, the world and all of life.

12. SHAMANIC JOURNEYING

It promotes powerful journeying and connection with your spiritual wisdom.

11. THERAPY – SOVEREIGN (RATHER THAN CODEPENDENT)

Helps to bring awareness to anything that has been preventing you from creating the life you love.

It aids in the recognition, and release of repetitive patterns

You will become aware of any beliefs and blocks which could prevent you from creating the life you love.

10. CONNECTION WITH HIGHER SELF

Stronger connection with the higher self (intuition, soul, God, Goddess etc.).

This leads to an enhanced connection with your own power and truth; your divinity.

Chocolate is a powerful facilitator allowing you to delve into your pain.

“You gotta feel it to heal it.”  

Once you FEEL your pain (sadness, anger, grief etc. etc.), you won’t keep manifesting situations to feel these feelings.

You will live a freer, happier life, without constantly being triggered.

When you release these emotions, it allows more light, love and magic into your life.

This is ‘Heaven on Earth’.

9. EFFECTIVE MEDITATION

Powerful, otherworldly and deep meditation, enabling you to connect with your spiritual nature, accessing the wisdom within.

Meditation is much easier and more beneficial; silencing the mind becomes easy – hence the space for healing occurs.

‘The healing occurs in the stillness.’

It calms the left brain chatter, and allows us to delve more into that ‘no mind’ space of bliss.

8. ‘GET’ ANY LEARNINGS IN YOUR ENTIRE BEING… NOT JUST YOUR HEAD

Profound embodiment of new learnings. This allows you to feel in your body what you know in your head. The teachings you might already be aware of are ‘understood‘, you suddenly ‘get‘ them on a deeper level.

For instance, the teaching that we are all love, and love is all there is. 

You might logically know this, and want to believe it and live it, but you wonder HOW to embody it?  

Is it true?

Chocolate aids the pathway to living and FEELING this love, this bliss, the state of being which IS FLOW, ONENESS and LOVE…..

7. A JOURNEY TO ONENESS LOVE ENLIGHTENMENT

Feelings of oneness, enlightenment and ecstasy.

This results in more love in your life, leading to more effective manifestation and a more powerful, familiar connection with your magnificence and spiritual capacities.

When you access this state; bliss, love, the vortex, the ‘zone’, flow, whatever you want to call it, you can manifest what you love.

You also enter into the state where what you love, comes to you!

Your lover, clients, abundance, vibrant health – you name it.

6. MALE FEMALE ENERGY BALANCE WITHIN

More enhanced, balanced, connected male & female energy.

Male and female energies are within everyone.

When these energies are in balance, you live a harmonious life magnetising all you love TO you.

This integration also leads to enhanced effectiveness as the divine creator and super manifesting machine that you are, in essence. 

The balance of male and female energies allows you to receive inspiration (feminine energy) AND act on it (masculine energy).

Chocolate is the ONLY food which

Connects your left brain & your right brain!!!

5. ENHANCED CREATIVITY

Access to the ‘one mind’ or unity consciousness allowing the connection with creative ideas.

You enter a zone where you are receiving ‘aha’ moments, inspiration, ideas. With the enhanced male/female balance, these are made manifest….

4. IMPROVED YOGA, CHI KUNG AND SIMILAR PRACTICES

More effective, deeper, profound, easier yoga and chi kung practice.  

Your practice improves on every level; physical, mental, spiritual, emotional.

This is probably the case with other practices too (aikido, kick boxing etc.) but I have yet to try other – so let me know!

3. CONNECTION TO HIGHER DIMENSIONS

A deeper, stronger connection with ‘the light’, the new, higher dimensions, raising your vibration.

2. CAREER GUIDANCE – CROSSROADS CLARITY

More clarity, ideas and connection with your life purpose.

Clarity on your talents, skills and how you are here to serve – you easily connect with your creative abilities; writing, painting, dancing, music or whatever floats your boat really. 

Flow is the one thing that those who are successful in business experience. Whether ‘spiritual’ or not. From this state creation, and abundance…. FLOWS!

1. FUN – The Reason We Are Here!

Chocolate is a gentle, powerful feminine force. It is the force for the new world. In fact ‘power’ is a better word than ‘force’. 

By surrendering to the essence and energy of Chocolate, you can step into the higher dimensions. It facilitates a deep Shamanic experience of ‘being in the world but not of it’ or ‘having a foot in both worlds’.

You become the Ascended Master on earth… bringing Heaven TO Earth. It shows you how you can shift your perception so life can be fun.

That is what we are here for, to have fun!

This was the learning I got when I lived in Hawaii and I swam with the wild dolphins almost every day. They kept telling me (telepathically), FUN FUN FUN. However, it took me about 5 years to master the teaching… in fact I’m still getting my head around it.

We’re here to have fun, if it’s not fun, don’t do it, or MAKE IT FUN!

Is Chocolate A Drug?

Well, if you think that tobacco, coffee and alcohol are drugs, then I guess so.

Chocolate wasn’t popular as a psychoactive in the 60’s because it’s not actually psychedelic (although many experience visions and powerful journeys in my ceremonies).

It is is gaining a lot of popularity now, because of all the shifts on the planet and people recognise its power.

We have come to a tipping point. As chocolate connects you with your heart, it also connects you with something bigger…. God, the Universe, Spirit, your higher self… whatever you want to call it.

It’s the magical space you enter when you appreciate a phenomenal sunset… before the mind chips in and goes; 

‘Oooheee – look, she’s having one of ‘those’ experiences!’ Lol..

Do you know what I mean?  

Anyway, I digress, I discovered this magic a few years ago on a trip round the world and it totally changed my life. Below, I share my journey and 13 Spiritual benefits of using chocolate for ceremonial and spiritual purposes.

Most of the chocolate available in the marketplace is full of sugar and additives. The beans are often hybridised, or low quality, so it doesn’t have a powerful effect. The chocolate that I work with facilitates a deeper journey, and intense feelings of BLISS. 

Postscript…

Messages From The Dolphins (the most intelligent of mammals).

The messages that the dolphins deliver, and the basis of Hawaiian Shamanism… It’s all about FUN, LOVE, BREATHING (consciously) and CONNECTION 🙂  I spent many months swimming with wild dolphins in Hawaii, they communicated with me daily, and eventually we had a very sovereign relationship (once I stopped depending on them for healing lol). They continually reminded me:

BREATHE … HAVE FUN … LOVE … CONNECT … FLOW!

The importance of these messages has been communicated to me recently in my own work and through witnessing what others gain in ceremonies and one to one sessions. It facilitates the clearing of deep psychological, emotional, and spiritual blocks. It allows one to get to the root of any emotion or even any physical ailment, to discover why they have it and in turn feeling the emotion related to it; subsequently healing the original dis-ease and releasing it.

Why 13?

The number thirteen is a powerful number; the number of the Goddess. During the patriarchy, we were led to believe that 13 is unlucky as it is the number attributed to the power – the gentle power of the feminine.  

When the patriarchy came to the fore, it was ruled as ‘unlucky’ because they wanted us to fear the power of the Goddess and women in general. It represents the new world of love and peace which is being created right now.

Back Story – How I discovered the magical, spiritual, medicinal qualities of chocolate!

I arrived in Guatemala at 11.11 on 11/11/12 feeling VERY curious, and a little afraid.

It was very synchronistic that I landed at those times, the flight was delayed and as I flew in, I was greeted not only by these (very significant) numbers but also by 4/5 bolts of lightning – at eye level!

This was a sure sign that this was probably not going to be an ordinary adventure!!  

The numbers have many meanings (click here to check them out).

My visit was also timed with the important dates which would occur the month after (12/12/12 and 21/12/12), the dates famed as being the end of the Mayan calendar, time as we know it, and a 26,00 year cycle. This was much celebrated and talked about worldwide, with some even thinking the world would end on 21 December 2012!  What resonated for me, was that it would be the end of the world … as we know it, and the beginning of a new one. The world of LOVE…

After arriving in Guatemala and spending some time in Antigua, a really beautiful city, and World Heritage centre, intuition, and a very dear friend guided me to buy a ticket to Lake Atitlan. I did so, and travelled the very next day. I arrived in San Marcos, a haven of healing portals in the Highlands of Guatemala. I still felt the fear. I had no idea why I was there and as I acknowledged my fear, and total submersion into the unknown, it was soon transmuted after I asked my favourite question; ‘What would I love?’  I actually can’t remember my answer, but I have a few ideas. Anyway, soon after (minutes), I met a wonderful lady who told me about ‘The Chocolate Shaman’ and his ceremonies. That was day one in San Marcos, day two I attended my first ceremony!

I had no idea about the magical properties of chocolate and that the Ancient Mayans and Aztecs used it for Spiritual and Ceremonial purposes. People from all over the world gathered in circle, to drink cacao, and drop from their head to their heart. They experienced healing, while having fun and journeyed deep within to a place where all their answers lay.

The Chocolate Shaman initially connected with the Spirit of Cacao nearly 10 years ago. She told him that Cacao would be ‘The Food for the Shift’. This started his journey of discovery, and ended up with him using Chocolate in its purest form as a medicine, to open others hearts, and return people to their innate power & magnificence.

I spent some months going to Ceremonies and learning about chocolate and surrendering to the ‘stuff” that I needed to let go of. It was totally life-transforming for me, and the path that I ‘thought’ I was going to take from then on, totally changed. I chose to add Sacred Chocolate to my Shaman’s Toolbag and hold ceremonies – well actually it was all totally intuitively guided. I invited a friend to come to my first one – and I loved it. From then on, people asked me to hold them, they got the people to come, they got the venues, all I needed to do was turn up! Now THAT is flow!

The Spirit of Cacao spoke to me – gently, yet powerfully and showed me this was my true path. In fact when I did a Shamanic Journey before I went to Guatemala, I had a vision of myself running what seemed to be Ayahuasca ceremonies – and I was a little surprised. As much as I respect Aya, and I have attended ceremonies it did not resonate as my path. Of course, it wasn’t long before I realised the similarities in a Cacao Ceremony and an Ayahuasca Ceremony. You sit in circle, drink an elixir and have a powerful, (fun with Chocolate), profound experience. The difference being that chocolate will show you the door, it will not push you through. Intention is the key … 

I was honoured to have been invited by The Spirit of Cacao to share her magic – her gentle, yet powerful guiding ways all over the planet. Since then, I have continued to build a strong connection with The Spirit of Cacao as the powerful teacher, facilitator and guide that she is.

“Chocolate; The Food For The Shift!”

My experiences since then confirm that Chocolate truly IS the food for the shift.

I have seen so many transformations, and people discovering their purpose, joy, confidence and walking the path their soul called them to take. In my ceremonies I use my Healing, Intuitive Coaching & Shamanic tools from a 16 year professional adventure into the unknown, raising the mists of my own beliefs and assumptions and becoming more of who I was born to be. I’ve been creating more and more of the life I love. Through that, I’ve been guiding others so that they not only create a life THEY love, but also go on to teach others to do so too. Sharing the magical secrets of alchemy and the elixirs of life worldwide!

“We must be the change we wish to see.”

Mahatma Gandhi

The use of Chocolate has taken my work and the results in others lives to another level. It creates a beautiful cauldron of love, allowing what needs to be released to transmute – thus allowing more room for extra doses of light, love and magic.

During Chocolate Ceremonies, people connect with deep feelings of bliss, love and joy – their FLOW!

They sometimes journey through a variety of emotions which are stuck – these may have caused illness, repetitive patterns, conflict, confusion, lack of abundance, love and basic lack of joy and fulfilment in their lives. They gain deep realisations about their purpose, the meaning of life and the direction their soul is calling them to take.

There’s often wondrous ‘aha’ moments on why certain things have been a perceived ‘problem’ and how, in fact, now they can see that it’s their greatest gift. With this knowledge, the journey forward is more empowered without the old ‘story’ but with a renewed awareness of the gifts they’ve been granted, even through the story! This fresh start empowers them to step into their power in a way they’ve never before experienced (often with them using Chocolate in their work).

The planet is changing, WE are changing and there’s a need for a great number of teachers to become guides for the rest of the planet. There are a lot of pain bodies to be soothed and transmuted, and I’m working with the next wave of teachers. As Eckhart Tolle said, dealing with the pain body is one of the most important, and much needed jobs of the current years.

Chocolate The Superfood

Apart from the fact that Chocolate is a magical medicine, it also has a lot of positive health benefits. It is a superfood, it’s delicious and it’s also an aphrodisiac!

Since my discovery about the magical uses for Chocolate I journeyed to Hawaii & Canada where I held Ceremony, but I also journeyed to Costa Rica and I met tribes who still use Chocolate for these purposes. They also use it for initiations for new born babies, teenagers and pregnant women.

The Spirit of Cacao was one of the most revered of the ancient Mayan Deities. They called Cacao ‘The water that runs through the heart’. Chocolate is a Sacred, Medicinal, Psychoactive, Plant and Theobroma or cacao actually means “Food of the Gods”.

I hope you enjoyed this piece.

The Law of Attraction… And Then What?


[Update… December 27, 2014, see bottom of post for a GREAT YouTube piece Celebrities talk “The Law of Attraction]

 

As I slowly, gleefully sip a ceremonial does of cacao, with tingles all over my body from a powerful download of wisdom and guidance, I share some magic with you.

Life is good. Life is good, because of the learnings.  Those learnings that continually come from some really, really painful, tough times and clearing my ‘stuff’; i.e my negative emotions and beliefs.

We’re all on an interesting journey as we come into our power and connect with our divinity (blog on what “A Woman in Our Power” is click here).  As we experience tough times, it’s sooo important to keep that in mind – that we are Divine Magnificent Beings, or spiritual beings having a human experience.

Anyway, I digress; I’m writing about the Law of Attraction right?  What’s the LoA got to do with tough times?  Well, when we move through our tough times, we get light infusions (light = wisdom), so as we learn, and grow, we become lighter.  We attract more of what we love.  We do this by simply FEELING the emotions, whatever they might be.  That clears them, leaving us to manifest what we love.

There’s often a lot of fear around actually being real and feeling our stuff; fear, pain, anger and other emotions.

The Law of Attraction made big news nearly ten years ago when the movie ‘The Secret’ was launched.  I remember watching it and jumping & dancing around my home celebrating at the message it conveyed.  My partner had been telling me about all this magic for years; how your thoughts and words create your reality.  I must admit, there was a part of me that doubted him, could it really be that simple, and how does it work?  I wondered.

When I watched the film I truly celebrated – I was SO happy it was true and this information was now in the mainstream.

As great as ‘The Secret’ was though, it also brought up a lot of confusion, doubt and fear.  Many people thought that you had to feel amazing all the time.  They thought that if you felt any negative emotions, you would attract negativity.

This is not true.  It’s SO important to bear this in mind as we create the new paradigm.  We MUST feel our feelings to clear them.  Alchemise them.  Otherwise they’re lurking around under the surface in your subconscious creating again, what you don’t love.

Your Magnificence comes from those feelings, as does enlightenment.  There’s no quick route to a blissful life, it’s the journey and it’s through continually allowing yourself to feel your feelings that you get to bliss.  I don’t suggest you wallow in them, just be real and allow yourself to feel them.  Neither do I recommend drowning them with things like alcohol, drugs, smoking and busy-ness, but just start being conscious of them, allow.

As Joseph Campbell says;

‘Pain is inherent,

Suffering is optional.’

There’s SUCH peace underneath those feelings if you simply allow yourself to sit with them, and I can’t speak highly enough of the Attitude of Gratitude….

564293_414801685244685_97187677_n

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,

And creates a vision for tomorrow.”  Melody Beattie

If you look at my blog Beliefs & The Power of The Subconscious Mind you’ll see that it’s the subconscious that creates our reality.  So if our negative emotions are tucked away there, if we’re ignoring them, or we’re afraid to simply FEEL them, we create more situations where we HAVE to feel them.  For instance the same relationship patterns with partners, bosses, etc. etc.  That’s why those that push our buttons are our best teachers.

As one of my Shamanic teacher used to say; ‘There’s nothing to fear, but fear itself’.  When we fear something, we’re giving our power away, we give power to whatever we fear… therefore that’s what we manifest (see below for many celebrities’ view on this.)  When we shift the fear, we have all that power we’ve been channelling (subconsciously) into the fear, we take the hand of fear, and walk with it… shifting the power towards what we love, walking the path our soul is calling us to take… in love.

We’re all Masters of the Law of Attraction, because we’re constantly creating.

Are you creating what you love OR what you don’t love?  Look at your life now for instant feedback.  It’s a reflection of your past thoughts.  We’re all manifesting things we DON’T want as well as those we DO want.

When you clear your negative emotions, you have room for the juicy high vibrations to create what you DO love.


It takes high pressure and temperature to create a diamond

The Law of Clarity

When you’re clear of the negative emotions (anger, frustration, grief, sadness etc.) that recreate unwanted situations and patterns in your life, you’re a clear vessel.  You vibrate with feelings of joy, love, happiness, peace and THEN you create that magic in your life, attracting what you love.

Use gratitude for where you are now and what you have; this is the bridge to even more magical outcomes. Let me know how you get on with The Law of Clarity and please feel free to share this post.

I love you!

The Power of Choice


 

Dear Beautiful,
Remember your power!

In any moment, in any situation, you have the power of choice.

Not always easy, but it is a simple choice

Not always easy, but it is a simple choice

Choose who you spend time with.

Choose how you feel.

Choose your dreams.

Choose your state of being.

Choose what action to take.

Choose how you interpret anything.

Choose whether, or how you react to someone or a situation.

Choose LOVE!
The more you choose to be in love, the more you are being the change you wish to see in the world.
This DOES mean speaking your truth, and being courageous enough to be real with others.

In fact, it’s all about being real; from the motivation of love, rather than fear.

Good luck & I love you!

 

Gerri

 

From The Heart


Aloha lovely,

I’m so very excited because this is…

The first day of the life I choose…

It’s also the first day I’m using the tools from a wonderful course called ‘Blogging from the Heart’ with Susannah Conway.  I LOVE writing, but I have a juicy little inner critic who always asks me ‘is this the way it’s meant to be done?’  About my inner gremlin; after spending most of my life not conscious of it, then conscious, then berating it, now I love it, we’re friends and I love its little tricks 🙂    As I’ve become conscious of it, I’ve taken the power out of its negativity.  I LOVE blogging because there’s actually no ‘right way’ to do it.  We’re all unique, and blogging gives us a chance to shine and share our ways; there is no right or wrong.

Image

I was drawn to this course because I know that when I speak from the heart it’s truthful communication sometimes with joy, sadness, passion and raw vulnerablity.  At least now, it’s becoming clear to me that that’s my current focus.

So what would I like to share today?

I’d like to offer a gentle stroke of your forehead.  Y’know, we’re experiencing a time on this planet like never before.  Everything is shifting and changing.  What isn’t of light, beauty and love is coming up to be released.

Please be gentle with yourself dear soul, and remember the journey we’re on is like a spiral.

Old patterns WILL come up, but like the spiral of a fern unfurling its fronds towards the light, the spiral gets less and less until all of the fern is in the light.  When you’re in a dark place, know that it’s all part of the process of showing your beauty to the sun and welcome it in.  Darkness doesn’t exist in the sunshine, so shine, baby shine!

I love you Divine Wonder Full Being 😉

Love, light & magic,

Beliefs & The Power of the Subconscious Mind


Like fertile soil, the subconscious takes everything in; it doesn’t discriminate in terms of what’s good or bad; everything goes in! I’ve always been intrigued by the power and capacity of the subconscious.  It takes in 20 million bits of information every second, whereas the conscious mind can only process 40 bits of information a second.  The subconscious can process 500 thousand times more than the conscious mind!

Conscious mind vs Subconscious mind

Conscious Mind vs Subconscious Mind

It would drive you crazy if everything was consciously experienced.  What I find fascinating is that one of the filters consists of your beliefs and assumptions.  Being aware of our beliefs is really important because they colour our world.  If we’re subconsciously focused on a negative belief like ‘I’m powerless’, or ‘I’m not good enough’, that’s what we expect and that’s what shows up in our world because focus creates reality.  Because the subconscious remembers everything; hypnotists and shamanic pracitioners can access it to clear deep problems, blocks, patterns and addictions.  The root of every problem is held there; all of your memories; even down to the colour of the curtains in your bedroom when you were 2 years old (which hopefully wasn’t too much of a problem) is stored therein! 🙂  

Plant seeds of love

I’d like to share an example of a client, I have her permission, but let’s call her Rebecca anyway.  She wanted to get to the root of her lack of success in relationships and the deep pain she constantly felt when she got close to someone.  During a ‘Soul Discovery’ process we remembered an incident when she was 3 and she witnessed her mother and father having an argument after which her father left the house.  She ‘made up’ that the row was directly related to her (when we’re children we believe the entire world revolves around us and everything relates to us).  She believed that her father had rejected and abandoned her which resulted in her having the belief of being unworthy and unlovable; her assumption was that she’d be abandoned and rejected by the masculine.

Consequently, this is what happened over and over in her life.  Either she’d attract men who would reject and abandon her, she’d believe so much that it was going to happen that in the end it did, or even when it wasn’t happening she believed that she was being abandoned and rejected.  This had happened over and over again with men in her life.  You see this is actually a gift, because those we love WILL push our buttons so we grow and learn and release the memory.  This is especially the case with relationships which are forming now; the ‘new paradigm’ relationships.

We can’t create have a sovereign relationship with our old baggage and old world ways of being.  This doesn’t mean we have to be perfect, but the old destructive patterns of control, blame, manipulation etc. are being gently (and sometimes not so gently lol) washed away.  We’re been given the opportunity to see that whatever is showing up in our reality has to do with US and no one else.

So during this very powerful, deep process we explored this incident from the perspective of her higher self (her soul or the spiritual aspect of her).  She realised that the argument between her parents was nothing to do with her. It was a random disagreement and her father had actually just left the house for a few hours to prevent the row from escalating.  This gave her mother time to get out of her ‘pain body’ (to use an Eckhart Tolle phrase) and calm down.  What dawned on Rebecca was that her mother and father  loved each other deeply, but they weren’t very good at feeling it and expressing it.  It was almost as if arguing was their unconscious way of ‘trying’ to connect and get love from the other.  This pattern is showing up a lot in my sessions over the last few years, our parents inability to express love which leads to all sorts of chaos.

Rebecca had had an awareness of her beliefs and patterns before this session, but seeing it from the higher perspective allowed her to feel deep sadness at having held onto the belief for so long, this was then transmuted into love.  With that awareness she was able to really feel it on the physical level.  She could literally feel, in her body how she had continually created feelings of rejection and abandonment.  Before she’d just been aware of it in her head, but she got it on a deep, cellular level.  Once she had this realization, it stopped the pattern, because it was all made up.  She could also see how it was all divinely planned so she could learn this lesson.  Rebecca is now in a wonderful, sovereign relationship with the man of her dreams and coaches others.  This man may at some point abandon or reject her (before even if her partner went away for a day she’d feel deep pain, rejection & abandonment), but now, she doesn’t have the same buttons, so she won’t react and subsequently feel the pain she felt before.

“Until we know the assumptions in which we are drenched, we cannot know ourselves.”  Adrienne Rich

“Until we know the assumptions in which we are drenched, we cannot know ourselves.” Adrienne Rich

I think I know my pattern, now what? 

Having an awareness of your beliefs and assumptions is really important because that allows you to take the power out of them.  We attract our reality depending on what we’re making up. I don’t recommend trying to change your beliefs.  When we try to change our beliefs, the focus is still on them.  For instance, someone with an ‘I’m not good enough’ belief might be a perpetual student, or a high flyer to try and prove that they ARE good enough.  By trying to change that belief, the focus is still on the belief so they try and try, and still they feel ‘not good enough’.  It’s like the flowerbed, we’re still focusing on the weeds and giving them energy.

Where’s The Power?

If you use the example of shareholders in a company, if you’ve got 51% of the shares, you’ve got power in the company.  The same with our focus, if 51% (or more) of your focus is on a belief, then that’s got the power and you manifest the belief, rather than what you love.

I used to use affirmations for years but the more I said “I love and approve of myself” or words to that effect I was actually still focusing on being unworthy and of not loving myself so I’d end up totally depressed! You don’t see Richard Branson or the like saying ‘Each and every day I’m getting better and better’, he just does!  I’d also like to add here that Richard’s favourite pastime is daydreaming, he doesn’t just dream though, he takes action on his dreams (rather than on his beliefs).  His power and focus are not on his beliefs.

This is the key… it’s what you take ACTION on that creates your reality, if you take action after your thoughts of ‘I’m not worthy’ then that’s what you manifest………

The Key Is….. CREATE!

Focus your attention on a higher vibration and CREATE, CREATE, CREATE what you love!  Focus on your life purpose.  When you’re doing what you love, this automatically results in making a difference in the world.  Whether you’re an artist, a teacher, a therapist or whatever, when you’re doing what you love, you’re focusing on a higher structure, you’re creating and your focus is on your heart; your treasure.  Rather than seeking outside of you like the character in ‘The Alchemist’ you realise that your treasure is within.

CREATE

CREATE!

Even More Magic

Something magical happens when you’re not trying to change your belief and you’re focussing on creating what you love, fulfilling your life purpose.  You realise you ARE powerful, you are capable; lovable and worthy of everything you love.  Whatever your belief was, you realise it’s absolute codswollop, it’s sooo not true! It takes will to focus on what you would love, the higher and lower vibrations are always competing but the highest vibration will always win.  When you’re in service to a higher purpose, the higher wins. It takes will to stay focussed on what you’d love, rather than your beliefs.  It’s like going to the gym, you don’t go once and think that’s it for the rest of your life, it’s like a muscle, it takes practice and exercising it over and over again.

I love you, you delicious, worthy wonderful human being 😉
