Have you ever thought of someone from your past and you hear from them within days?
Ever have a knowing that something bad just happened to someone… to then have it confirmed?
Sometimes when the phone rings you know who it is? (without looking at Caller ID)
What about having a precognitive dream?
Did you ever know something about someone, inexplicably?
What about receiving a very clear message from ?somewhere? about what to do in life?
Are these just random events?
Do they just happen to people who were born with special gifts?
Is there any way to harness this phenomenon to better your life?
If there is a way would you do it?
Empirical Research has shown that people who practice the techniques begin to have experiences that come through their Intuitive Thought Channel. These NEW types of thoughts sometimes start occurring slowly and sometimes quickly, in a flash. These Intuitive Thoughts are just as valid as your Logical Thoughts. Many people live their entire lives in the Logical Thought BOX thereby creating a limited and safe life with less passion and less joy.
When you educate your brain so that Intuitive and Creative Thoughts become more predominant your life will start expanding, you will find an alignment with life and you will deepen your experiences.
Logical thoughts are limited by your life experiences and standard education because that is how they were created. Intuitive thoughts are not limited by physical senses, current education and life experiences.
Intuitive thoughts are limitless. They come from a greater intelligence that physicists call Quantum Intelligence which lies in all Quantum Energy. With the right educational system, which I do, you actually expand the use of your brain to focus in on and receive information from this Limitless Infinite Intelligence. This is the Source of your Intuitive and Creative Thoughts. To train it properly is to expand its usefulness.
CAUTION: Trained and Effective Intuition may cause greater fulfillment, happiness and harmony with life.
When you have questions AND when you are ready to initiate a major life direction change then contact me and let’s make it happen.
Are you ready and willing to change the way you relate to life? To improve it?
I look forward to meeting you.
May we all LIVE BEing fulfilled, loving and peaceful… Lamar
This writing is inspired by the sermon that Marianne Williamson gave at the Agape International Spiritual Center this morning. This is the Spiritual Center of Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith; from the movie The Secret, Oprah, Larry King Live, on the world stage. You can see his Sunday service online at www.agapelive.com. It is more than just an uplifting experience. Marianne Williamson, www.marianne.com gave an incredible talk, inspired and practical; mind and heart enhancing.
[For people who are not familiar with some terms. ‘Go to level’ means to meditate while staying focused. Beta mind refers to your experience of the world as you know it with your eyes open and fully engaged with your senses.]
One reason to go to level frequently, at a minimum daily, is to wash away the stresses from yesterday in order to keep yourself from going stress-psychotic and reacting to this world of form in destructive ways through destructive thinking.
Let us take a short journey through the limited world of being normal.
Our five physical senses do a great job at showing us ‘what is’, what is in our life now, the problems, the judgments, the pains, the world news, etc. The world detected by this and our emotions is a world that already exists. And in this outer world, some may call the ego world, we only have the mortal thoughts with which to handle it. These mortal thoughts and reactions will keep this outer world doing what it knows how to do since, in this mind state, all thoughts and ideas come from your collected database of knowledge of ‘what is’ and ‘what has been’ and are experienced by and stored through your beta mind into the left hemisphere. We know this well; it is the origin of any problems we may experience. And it keeps building and we get more stressed and we react more so out of self righteousness and indignation, qualities of our limited ego mind that thinks it is separate from us and from everyone else. We get to be right. The price of being right is illness, negativity, doubt, misguided deeds, separation, feelings of inadequacy, etc. The ultimate price of being right is living a disconnected existence, living small and not doing what and not being who we came here to do and be.
Let us take a journey through the unlimited world of BEING.
By going to level you are entering into a meditative state, a prayerful state, a place from which you operate from your centered being where you are connected to the infinite intelligence through your intuition. It is as if you left the apparent world of form with all its baggage, walked through a hallway and emerged into the majestical Theater of All.
The first benefit is that outside world experience begins to fade away as you turn your attention to your inner self and its world of possibilities. Any built up stress begins to immediately drain from your body. Any built up negative thinking begins to immediately drain from your mind. If that is not enough of a reason then…
The second benefit is you plug into increased intelligence, to commune with the infinite creativity using your intuition. By entering this world of cause daily you are choosing to empower that infinite potential self within. You are choosing to dis-empower that limited self that lives without; without the saving grace of new and creative thoughts that lead to an expanded life.
The third benefit is that once you have disconnected from ‘what is’ and connected to ‘what can be’ you can now generate ‘what shall be’ from your unlimited, loving, compassionate, expansive, inspiring, awesome, vision-driven, infinite and authentic self.
Let us now call upon our divinely-given skill of Free Will and make a choice.
What have you chosen? What do you choose now?
Imagine making this choice every day.
Imagine making this choice with eagerness.
Imagine facing each day born anew and feeling unencumbered by the past.
Imagine intuiting empowering thoughts from your unlimited potential.
Imagine witnessing your own transformation as they become the majority of your thoughts.
Imagine, as a direct result, feeling empowered and transformative feelings.
Imagine allowing your perfect life to unfold from within driven by your Highest Vision and Purpose.
Imagine Living as an expanded BEing.
Imagine Living in an expanded World.
Imagine It. Be It. Live It.
And, So It Shall Be. And, So It Is.
Meditative Thought from Michael Bernard Beckwith
How do we become authentically, totally free? Is it even possible in the three dimensional realm? My personal conclusion is that we cannot find absolute freedom in the external world. We have to go beyond the five senses of the outer world and enter the fourth dimensional inner realm where we use our sixth sense, intuition, to directly contact the authentic self.
The authentic self is formless-no description on Facebook or Twitter can describe the authentic self, It is made of pure consciousness. The more deeply we move towards actualizing this awareness the more we infuse our outer lives with its beauty and freedom has tremendous beauty.
A few of us went downtown Austin for the 4th of July Fireworks and the Austin Symphony Orchestra. It was fun to be along Town Lake and it was a good show.
As I was laying back and staring at the sky I wondered what Freedom means to me. There are the standard concepts… A founding principle of this nation in our Bill of Rights is freedom. Our troops help us maintain our freedom. I think of an eagle, fireworks, sparklers.
Then I began to wonder: What does Freedom Mean to People on a very personal level? When someone thinks or says ‘freedom’ what is it that is going on inside. I first think about our Free Will, a quality of our thought process that we are born with and I cherish very dearly. This assures me that my thoughts are ultimately my choice. I get to choose them… And knowing as much as we know about how Thoughts Create Reality then there is always room for hope. We can always change our lives by first changing our thoughts. This is one thing about the Silva Method classes that is generally not spoken about; it teaches you how to think differently giving you management privileges and skills for your thought processes. Very empowering.
Then I considered those great feelings I have experienced many times in life; a visceral sense of freedom that comes when a set of old stale patterns/beliefs/thoughts melt away. That sense of freedom that comes when somehow, some way I feel as though the mental walls of my life’s possibilities has rapidly expanded. This usually can occur in classes that focus on personal experience. [I am working to bring back a transformational weekend experience I used to do; it was titled Creating Real Magic. This class was an environment for people to let go of their old walls and to imagine going beyond them.]
Then I wondered about how many times my own limiting and personally oppressive thinking has held me back. The joyous part of that realization is to then feel the personal freedom I just reclaimed for my living. I now get to use my imagination and think more expansive thoughts that will lead me to a more expansive life. Freedom is an aspect in the environment of life in which I have the Free Will to choose the direction of my life. This, to me, is a new opportunity to feel greater joy and love about my life. The sense that the intent of life is leading us on an upward spiral and providing us with what we desire is reassuring.
“The road to freedom lies not through mysteries or occult performances, but through the intelligent use of natural forces and laws.” Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind
I was talking with a very insightful and psychic friend the other day and he said something that was such a good way to put ‘it’.
The child makes the map that the adult lives by.
In some classes we talk about how as a child your initial job is to watch, learn and absorb how those ‘big people’, adults, do life. The child is building belief systems, learning what to do in specific situations and what not to do and generally learning how to relate to all the aspects in this life.
So, if you had great role models, adults, around you then you learned some great ways to handle life. BUT if you didn’t then… you end up taking workshops 😉
Take a moment to contemplate what this means to you. As an adult your Treasure Map for finding your Life’s Treasures was created by you when you were a child.
There is so much to this… and this is a BIG part of my motivation to teach and coach those who want new Treasure Maps.
What is on your map for finding the treasures in your career?
What road does your map take you down when you consider romantic relationships?
What about health, money, friends, fun…
Take a moment today and look at the path you have been following? Is it still valid after all these years? Or does it need a bit of upgrading?
This is a simplistic view at how every person creates, modifies and adjusts what they have/do/be in life.
The absolutely fantastic awesome rejuvenating news is that this is under YOUR control.
Everyone is doing this either intentionally or automatically. When we run on autopilot we are doing these steps automatically and they are based on the past… thus we keep having/doing/being the same things in life. That is good for those aspects of life that are always working well.
But what about those aspects of life that are not working so well?
Then it’s time to do something different. What better time than now… the New Year!
The end of each year is a great time to evaluate the current year to see what worked, what didn’t work and how much on the ‘right track’ you feel that life is going. This has become something I enjoy doing for the past many years.
So my New Year Gift to you, to say thank you, is your Personal Guide to Choose Your Life in 2010.
On Wednesdays from 11 am to 1 pm I am at the Center for Spiritual Living, Greater Austin to hold the consciousness for the community and to offer donation-based Spiritual Mind Treatments. [NOTE: Since the center is moving, I will not be doing this until we find another space.]
I was there two weeks ago and had one of those “real moments” that make life valuable.
I was in treatment for the center and I heard the door open. This lady I did not recognize came in. She introduced herself as Melissa. She said that she was riding by (on her bike) and was reminiscing about a time before we were using this space. I invited her to look around. I then got to witness a beautiful event as seen from the heart.
Evidently our space used to be an AA office. 15+ years ago she came in, scared, shoe-less and needing a miracle. She had no shoes in her life, was staying drunk and other bad things which I will not write here. She pointed to the spot just inside our sanctuary and said that she sat there as far in the back away from the speaker in the front as possible – scared to death. She was so withdrawn and non-trusting that no one could touch her.
At one point a woman at that meeting came over and told her that she was going to braid her hair. She has very long hair down to her lower back. Melissa did not object. A tear started streaming down her face as she recounted this memory and let this unknown woman braid her hair. She said at that moment her “armor” started to crack a little bit.
She then pointed out that the office for our minister was the half-way room for those who were too afraid to commit to the big room; they would gather there and talk. Have you ever been that scared about your life?
She pointed to the kitchen and said that is the first place she ever did service for anyone or any organization. She continued to recall important spots in the building where healing moments along her journey occurred. It was a beautiful journey, accompanying her on her memory of acknowledgment of her personal progress.
Then she said that where the podium currently is, is where she and her husband renewed their vows, sober together for the first time.
I am the most lucky person on the planet at this moment. To witness someone sharing their story of recovery in such a powerful moment in her life. I could feel her growth in the few minutes she reminisced and shared. Then she gave me a hug. A beautiful moment for sharing.
Especially at this time when we are about to move away from this space because the owner is allowing all tenants’ leases to expire without renewing them. To know that this space for at least 15+ years has been used for healing is powerful. It is nice to know that this healing energy will continue to spread into the new uses of the property.
This is what I call a real moment with a real angel. I had to read a book called Real Moments by Barbara DeAngelou while studying to become a licensed Science of Mind practitioner. It was about having those moments in life that you remember; that impact you on a deeper level. Those moments when two people drop facades and connect from the heart.
[An aside: There’s a graphic that Frank Natale used to use, facetiously called the fried egg, that describes our crust which develops over time that serves to separate us and others from our true selves and each other. I’ll post about it sometime – and do a class about it; personally powerful stuff.]
This was the perfect reminder for me that day of my own progress from my troubled background. Once in a while it is important to acknowledge ourselves for the evolution we have made in this lifetime. Surely we are not the same person we were 10, 20 or even just 5 years ago. I certainly hope not. Quite often we get ‘stuck’ in the gotta-do-to-get mode in life and forget to pause and take stock of how good life really is.
This is one of the many layers of the Silva Method proven subjective educational system: to train a person’s mind to have an ever-increasing faculty of intuitive knowing.
I decided that I wanted a unique desk/table for my meditation area. I shopped every once in a while and could not find “it”; the right one. A month or so later I was in San Antonio before an event eating at the Souper Salad at 410 @ Blanco Rd. While eating I heard ‘go into the Goodwill’; there is one next door. I never go to Goodwill. I have friends who are great Goodwill shoppers; so I ask them to find things for me once in a while. I have gone in before but just couldn’t find anything. So I discarded the thought of going into Goodwill. I heard it again and again while eating.
I finally accepted that I should follow this persistent hunch and went into the Goodwill. I went up and down aisles and didn’t see anything. Then I walked to the back and found the unique desk-table that I looked and would work well for my meditation area. So, I bought it.
Now, I know even more so. Follow those thoughts that creatively enter my mind.
I’ll ask these questions that lead to different areas that many Silva Method graduates have had intuitive ‘hits’:
What if you were heading home from work and would hear to take a particular route so that you avoid a major traffic jam?
What if you are talking to a sales person and want to know if this is right for you to do?
Would it be an advantage to know what your client needs BEFORE you meet him or her?
If you are having difficulty communicating with someone, would it help to have the skill to detect what the problem might be?
What about knowing which place to move into that will be best for you? Or which job to take? Or what company to approach for a job? Or…
Many people have a difficult time comprehending the fact that they can simply take a class that trains their minds in a way that creativity, intuition and hunches start happening. The thing that I also find interesting is that many people want something different but when that something different is right in front of them it becomes “too weird” or “unbelievable” to do… even though there is decades of research and LOTS of people doing it… so that they live a better quality of life.
Here’s one more example for you: A realtor began a million-dollar closing club just 3 years after getting her license using all the Silva Method techniques. I have her telling her story on video; it’s great – all the poofy 80’s styles 😉 This was someone who really wanted success! The article she wrote is here.
How much do you truly want a better life? Or that job that is better than what you have? Or more income?
AND… What are you willing to do differently for it?
When we were children growing up our parents, teachers and other authorities gave us permissions to do some things and restrictions to not do some things. As adults we may not be aware that we still have these rules for life, sometimes living within parameters that no longer serve us and, in fact, hold us back from living our greatest life of service. We are having thoughts that we were given years ago.
I lay out this foundation as a way to present this concept:
You have the right to challenge each and every one of your thoughts.
Does this matter? What does this mean? Why bother?
Bottom line: your predominant thought pattern about a particular area of life brings about the matching results in your life. For anyone who saw the movie The Secret this is how the Law of Attraction works. i.e. If there is an area of life that is persistently not working for us then if we are honest with ourself and pay attention to the predominant thoughts and the resulting feelings we will see that we are allowing negative thoughts to rule our day, predominantly.
I mention ‘resulting feelings’ because our thoughts precede us having matching emotions. Our thoughts are our navigation for where we are heading and our emotions are the fuel that propel us there.
Now that all of that is said, back to the topic at hand. Since your thoughts are leading to your life and your thoughts may be simply repeating those life parameters from your parents and other authorities from childhood… maybe, just maybe, some of those thoughts are not leading your life in the best direction for what you most deeply desire to do. Maybe they are not in alignment with who you are.
As a result, I officially give you permission 😉 to challenge your thoughts.
Begin by observing your thoughts. When you notice a thought ask yourself:
Does this thought lift up my energy? Do I feel empowered?
Is this in the direction that I want to go in my life?
If the answer is no, then choose another thought. Choose a thought that does reflect what you want in life. And entertain that thought. Doing this process of replacing unsupportive thoughts with supportive thoughts will end up altering your predominant thought pattern. This in turn will end up altering your predominant emotional pattern. This all leads to you having your life as you most desire it to be.
It is just The Way It Works.
Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you. Leave a comment and let’s talk about it.
Remember: Thoughts become things so choose the good ones.
