Breaks in the line.
How can we obstruct our potential unconciously? There are a number of ways to help and hinder this process. First I'll point out some hinderances,
and then some methods for clearing the path.
Say you want to be rich, but you have a negative opinion of those with money, this could serve as a blockage.
You see, we don't recieve everything we think of fleetingly. This would install an even greater level of chaos into our world. There has to be a
certain formula followed for it to work. It's telling the universe you're serious. You picture in your mind what you want, and fuel it with positive
feeling. Then, you take action to move in that direction. Positive thoguht, feeling, and action results in less resistance. The Formula must be
maintained for some time to allow things to fall into place.
Doubt. When we begin this work, we often find our actions and results seperated by time or circumstance. We don't relate what happens to us with our
good deeds. So it seems like coincidence. Many of us begin to practice these principles, but don't see the results right away. Instead, we still see
the results of our negative actions and disjointedness for awhile. This is natural. Even causes we no longer engage in must all have an effect, so our
good deeds will sometimes have their results delayed. Causing us to stop practicing because we don't see the benefit.
These are just some examples that popped in my head as common hinderances. Now, let me give some tips for getting more out of your life.
Stretching. Yes, stretching. What we do with our bodies reflects upon our personalities. You see, when our muscles are tight, it constricts the
natural life energy that flows through the universe. It is related to my concept of "Spirit."(See Differences between spirit and soul) This energy
flows through us, and animates our bodies. When our muscles are tight, it has a harder time flowing through us, like water through a kinked hose. When
it flows more freely through us, we become more open-minded as well as more conciously aware of our world.
Deep breathing. Another good one. When deep breathing, with inhale, let the stomach expand, the ribs/chest expand, collar bone rises, we hold briefly,
and then exhale. The inhale, exhale, and hold should all take the same amount of time. whether that's 4 seconds, or 5, or 10. The deeper the better,
but keep the balance even. if you cannot extend your exhale 10 seconds, but your inhale you can, practice until they're even. Doing this makes you
more conciously aware of the world around you, it increases energy flow, health, and many other goodies I won't get into here. Deep breathing along
with stretching helps your results. hen we're conciously engaging the energy flow, we can start to become capable of directing it.
Smiling. Practice smiling into the mirror brightly 3 times a day, for a count of 215 seconds. It'll force a certain time limit on you. Look into the
mirror, and smile brightly, even if you should feel angry, sad, fearful, keep smiling. This just shows you have inner scars that need healing. Smile
big and bright, in a month, you'll be a different person.
Finally, take 10 minutes a day to picture yourself at your best, as you'd like to be. This'll reprogram your self-image. Picture yourself as the
person you'd like to be, and when you go out into the world, act as that ideal person. You will find that before long, this act becomes real, and you
are that ideal version of yourself. You've transformed yourself.
If you practice the principles, and living, conciously aware of each moment of your life, you stretch, practice deep breathing, and being a better
person, work on smiling in the mirror, you'll become someone that you never dreamed you could be. You'll begin to awaken your vast potential.
