Law of Attraction – How to Create a Powerful Money Portal

Does the universal law of attraction really work when it comes to attracting more money? That’s the question on the minds of lots of people. Sure it does work but there are rules and secrets to attracting money that will change the flow of money in your direction once you know how it all works.

Right now you may be feeling scared, frustrated, or just stuck. There is a whole wide world of possibilities to be lived and experienced but it’s all out of your reach because you are short on money. Well so you think anyway. None of what you believe about money is really true even the belief that you need money to live the life that you want.

To Begin with Forget all the Money Affirmations

I know all the gurus tell you that money affirmations will change you mind. Money affirmation will help you to attract more money. Many of those gurus made money telling you this nonsense. You know its nonsense also because you are still reading this article instead of spending the money you should have had from using those money affirmations.

Putting all jokes aside there is a powerful way of attracting and it requires that you first become aware of yourself; your very own nature as a magnet. When you become aware of your own inner void and how to use your divine center you can attract money or anything you desire to you. The law of attraction will become a game to you. Your ability to manifest will increase.

The Money Portal is You

You can get the universal law of attraction to bring you what you desire when you learn how to draw intense magnetic power towards you first. That is the true secret. First you become magnetic then you draw what you want.

Think of a magnet and how it draws metals from all various angles. It does not draw from one side alone, it magnetically attracts from several sides and it does so very fast. It is irresistible to all other forms of metal.

That is the true secret to applying the law of attraction. Most people have the law of attraction in reverse. You must first become the portal for raw power. It’s a cosmic power so great that you can manifest anything.

Imagine being able to charge yourself that you become irresistible to all the things that you want. Applying the law of attraction will then become easier. There will be no struggle when you create a desire because that desire will desire you.

Money will Desire to Move Towards You

If you understand the nature of energy you will understand that all things are alive in the universe, including the things we consider dead. Energy can never be destroyed; it is always moving and changing form. Money is also energy. As you become more magnetic money will follow you. You will not chase money, rather it will find its way to you easily. The law of attraction will become a game to you.

You can check out law of attraction with Bob Proctor from the movie “The Secret”.  He really sums it up nicely.

7 Ways to Use the Law of Attraction

Law Of Attraction

The whole idea of the law of attraction is to be a co creator with God in manifesting the things that are deepest to your heart. When you use the law of attraction in the right way you can experience manifesting your desires at a much faster rate than you ever would have had you not made the effort to use it correctly.

You can use the law of attraction to manifest faster results by taking the following steps.

1. Be Grateful Now

Gratitude can dramatically change your life but best of all it gets the law of attraction to give you more of what you are feeling grateful and happy for. When you are feeling frustrated and down the law of attraction gives you more reasons to feel down. You manifest more situations that make you feel unhappy. So as the first rule to manifesting faster results begin to see all the things in your present life that you are grateful for no matter how simple it is.

2. Speak of It

It may seem hypocritical at first when you learn of the law of attraction to speak of your desires as if they are already here. In reality all things are already created. The moment a thought is conceived you have brought it into your reality. The more you speak of that thought the stronger it becomes and the faster it moves into your state of being. Think of a child who becomes eager about the thing he or she wants. See how eager they are about it? They look up pictures about it, they speak about what they will do when they get it. They don’t worry about how or when it will come, they just know and above all they are excited about it. Speak with joy about what will come into your life because your words and thoughts about it feeds that creation and brings it to you faster.

3. Surround Yourself With The Things You Desire

You maybe asking, how can I surround myself with the things that I want if I don’t have it? It may not be yours at the moment but you can borrow, you can visit, above all you can place yourself in the environment and among the people who are closely link to the things you desire. The successful application of the law of attraction depends on you already being in that energy of what you want. It is up to you to create the state that you want to attract and you do so by being among the things that you want until it is fully yours. The law of attraction will give you quite easily what you bring into your focus, whether you are speaking of it or observing it. You get more of what you surround yourself with.

4. Let Go!!!

Let go of what you want. Yes, let it go. Know that you desire to experience a particular thing but don’t hold on out of fear of doubt. The more you cling on to the needing or wanting feeling the more disastrous your manifesting will be. You will only succeed in feeling more needy. Allow yourself to feel full and confident. Those who understand how the universe and the laws of attraction work easily understand the power of their intention and don’t feel stress or needy. They create and know that the law of attraction is working for them and what they create will soon manifest. They create then let go and move into the state of receiving.

There is a great paradox that comes with letting go because a very large part of manifesting requires that you give a lot of focus to your desire but there is a delicate balancing act of focus without feeling needy or being clingy.

5. Learn to Receive

To activate the law of attraction you must move into the state of receiving. This is something most people cannot do. Many people say that they want certain things but few people know how to receive those things that they are asking for. Most people feel doubtful or unworthy about what they want. Deep within they feel that they do not deserve nor will they get what they are asking for. Those tiny feeling of unworthiness are giant blocks in the manifesting process and can only serve in destroying what you are hoping to attract. The law of attraction is a science that takes you deep into your inner nature and allows you to see where you are feeling disconnected as a co-creator with God and the universe. Become worthy and allow yourself to receive.

6. Become Worthy Now

Become worthy by recognizing that you can manifest anything that you want because you are Gods and Goddesses and what you desire is only a tiny speck in the universe. You deserve to manifest what you want because when you are rich you influence those around you in positive ways. When you use the law of attraction to manifest a better life you are in the flow and in a better state of adding value to the world. The faster you can feel worthy of what you desire to manifest the faster it will come.

One of the biggest blocks in manifesting is the feeling of unworthiness that most people feel. God wants you to have, the universe is great enough and there is more than enough for you and everyone else. You are worthy!.

7. Give What You Desire Most

You may not have all the money in the world for yourself but you do have something of value and that thing which is of value to you may be in scarce supply to someone else. Give to others and you will be stunned and amazed by how fast the law of attraction will manifest abundance in your life.

There is a natural flow in the universe and in order to manifest more you must also be in the flow of giving. Give to others as long as you do not give more of yourself. There are many flawed concepts of giving more than you have, this is very faulty. Give only what you can, never ever deplete yourself. Give what makes you feel happy to give. Give with love on a regular basis but also be aware of conserving your own and the law of attraction will bless you by bringing to you much more than you give. As you give you will get and you will manifest much more than you could ever have imagined and much faster too.

Handbook Of The Navigator Warning

The information you are about to reveal to yourself should be considered very serious in nature. It will systematically challenge you mentally, emotionally and at times even physically fatigue you. The Higher Balance material is considered one of the most powerful metaphysical and spiritual teachings accessible to mankind. Please proceed with caution, reflect within yourself and determine if you are truly ready for such progress.

If you continue, No doubt you will have reservations believing these statements and assume it is a marketing ploy, you would be somewhat correct in both assumptions, although none the less everything here stated is the truth.

If you are a mere curiosity seeker then stop here for this knowledge is not for you. This material is reaching out to persons, who are searching out a hidden knowledge, have felt a calling within their being their entire life. Have already researched and study numerous religions, philosophies, paranormal, metaphysical and meditation systems and determined them not adequate for what their needs warrant.

They feel an infinity with the Universe that is unshakable. Even words attempting to describe the passion they feel shadow its truest meaning. “The Force, God or The One” are words barely capable of holding their most inner thoughts. They seek not religion, but truth and purpose.

Again I give you this warning. Simply reflecting on the material will shape and change your destiny, do not read forward if you desire to remain in the place that you are now.

In one full moment of reflection regarding the knowledge I propose you will no longer be able to return to the person you are but rather you will begin to become the person you have always desired to be.

Assuming you have decided to move forward with the material you should be prepared and understand that the knowledge will reach into your deeper memories and awaken them. Ancient memories will slowly surface and wrestles with the things you have come to believe. Over time and deep reflection, only then you will see that there are fantastical energies and living consciousness all around you and you will understand that they are accessible to those who can fully understand them.

The first place to begin on your journey is “The Hand Book of the Navigator” This is no ordinary book, and it will not only give you great and wondrous incites but it will lead you to the tools and techniques that will free you from an invisible and unknowable chain that has bound to you in this world. It will lift the veil from that which is hidden from you. Once you have this sight, you will never see things the same way again and you will have truly begun to empower yourself.

I say once more. Be warned, for you cannot un-know what which you have learned.

This knowledge is alive and it is evasive. Withdrawing from those that should not hold it within their mind. It belongs to only a few and it constantly seeks them out to be united.

You are about to learn sacred knowledge that has remained hidden for centuries by monks and mystics throughout the ages. Secrets that many of this realm would prefer to have stayed hidden. Once you understand the nature of the veil and move it to one side the wonders of other worlds will become known to you. How much you will learn and experience will depend on how much your true mind can carry.

Some advice, The slower you read the faster you will move. Contemplate, reflect and internalize the truths it reveals for each is a piece to whole that makes a larger piece. Do not assume anything for assumption can be blinding.

Some may fear that the knowledge, the secrets contained in this book may fall in the wrong hands. Fear not as I have said already it is alive and dances to distraction for the mind that does not belong cannot cradle such things, it simply will spill over.

If these words find themselves to you look within and ask “Am I ready for a journey?” If you hear yes, then step forward with the feet of your mind and look high and far for you leave this world never to see it the same way again once you return. If you hear no then rest this book to the side so another seeker my find it.

The stronger your quest, the greater the defiant will arise in your life and discourage you from setting out upon your journey. I ask you now, how many times have you desired for your awakening, how many times have you let it be taken from your hands freely without a fight?

Trust your own navigator to discern this truth and listen not to the bitter and arrogant who would miss direct you on your path. Listen to your navigator and it will set you free.

Once it is alive within you, seek out the rest of the garden so that your seeds my flourish and grow to feed the navigators that follow behind you.

Help…. Gaia Won’t Let Me Grow

Over the last 25 years, thousands of self help books and programs have flooded the marketplace. Millions of people all over the world have invested in these programs in order to bring about some type of change in their life. Yet strangely, most people never do change. No matter how much they hear or read or try, nothing seems to change. The question is why?

Gaia Mother Earth

Gaia Mother Earth

You have the entire weight of the Gaia consciousness telling you how to act as an organism within the planet. In the same way that you are the god consciousness of your entire body and have a plan for all the cells in your body, so too does the planet have a consciousness that sets the tone for all the organisms within it. Like a computer program it is constantly telling you what to do and how to be. This is why the majority of people are the same kind of person. There isn’t a lot of diversity in behavior, opinions, etc. Standing out is seen as rocking the boat, so the consciousness of Gaia pushes you to stay in line.

Now this doesn’t mean that it tells you what foods to eat or if you should be a democrat or not. What it is really telling you is to be concerned with trivial things and stick to the program. Be born, grow up, make babies and die. That is the basic program for all beings on this planet. When you die all of your experiences are released, like rain drops into a bucket, into the Gaia consciousness. When this happens, they cease to exist as independent beings. They become recordings of who they were in their lives and are stored as part of the collective consciousness or Akashic Record. The only way to avoid this fate is create a soul and become something more than what you are.

The planet does not want you to become a spiritual being. It need the experiences of beings to develop and grow. If you forge a soul and gain the capability of changing the program, moving outside of it or even leaving Gaia in a future incarnation you have glitched the program in a way. Now, because the weight of the Gaia consciousness is so great, only the strongest and the most dedicated can ever break free from this hold. There is no danger in everyone forming souls and ruining the system. Only the very best, the most diligent can make it.

The second reason that change is so hard is because behavior has a physical component that must also be changed. When you were a baby you had no coordination in your body. You had to learn to use your arms and legs. Every time you did a particular movement, a neural pathway was created and subsequently strengthened in your brain by each repetition. Once you ingrain this movement deeply enough, you cannot forget it. It is now a permanent physical structure in your brain. It has been hardwired.

If you learned to the play the piano and did not have your bad habits corrected as you were learning them, those bad habits become ingrained in your brain. The only way to correct those habits is to retrain the brain by building new pathways to do it correctly. The older we are, the more difficult this is to accomplish. But what it is important to note is that it takes thousands of repetitions ingrain a movement and it is even more difficult to over write an old pathway with a new one.

Now, if you look at your behavior patterns you will see that in the same way that you learned to extend your fingers as a child, you also learned to react to different behavioral stimuli. You didn’t want to do your homework or take out the trash. You build a neural pathway called procrastinator. Each time you procrastinated, you reinforced this pattern in your brain, making it stronger and easier to follow the next time. After 5-10 years, you have become an expert procrastinator just like the person who practiced the piano for 10 years. They built up finger dexterity, you built up your ability to procrastinate.

So after putting things off in every area of your life for 15 years, you decide that you don’t want to be like this anymore. You read books on changing and you vow to never procrastinate again! You do good for a few days until your will starts to fail you or you forget that you aren’t supposed to be procrastinating. You automatically start running that old pattern without even realizing you are doing it. After a week of this you suddenly realize, “I am procrastinating again!” You try some other books and they suggest other methods. You are sure you will change this time. But you get the same outcome as before. You try for a few days and decide its too hard. You are just the way you are and you can’t change. Or maybe its your parents fault or your ex boyfriend?

The problem here is that you aren’t changing your neural pathways to reflect your desired behavior pattern. If you want to stop procrastinating you have to act in the opposite way EVERY TIME you face a situation that allows you to procrastinate. You must literally rewire the brain and over write the old programming. This is not an overnight fix and more than getting rid of bad habits on the piano is. The brain will fight you every minute of the way. The brain likes consistency and does not like to change, especially as we become older and our mind begins to crystallize into set patterns of being.

The only way to make real, long lasting change is to make slow, incremental steps in the new direction you wish to journey to. You cannot take huge leaps in most cases and trying to do so usually ends in failure. Whenever you have a decision to make that involves the behavior you want to change you must recognize it as a choice to change or reinforce an old pattern. Each time you give in to the old way of doing things, you make it harder to change and easier to fall back into.

The length of time it takes to make a change depends on how deeply the original pattern was ingrained in the first place. If it was ingrained with emotion or the pattern has a high emotional charge you work will twice as difficult because they universal language of the Universe is emotion and emoting is the strongest way to program something. You must be patient with yourself and realize it will be a slow process. No one becomes a champion tennis player over night or build muscles in a day. It takes days, months, sometimes years to develop these things. Making a behavior change is no different.

Having the right tools can make your struggle much easier though. If you are trying to dig a hole with a hammer or you don’t realize that every time you scoop out some dirt you are unconsciously knocking some back in with your feet as you move forward then your journey is going to be so much harder than it needs to be. Having the right tools and a thorough knowledge of how to use those tools is essential if you wish to get the most of your time here on Earth.

Top 8 reasons why the Sixth Sense is the Key to Enlightenment

When you think of the great enlightened masters, they all seem to share many similar traits: Unusually intelligent, charismatic, can do miraculous things, and they all exhibited the use of the Sixth Sense.

The Sixth Sense or Psychic Sense is anything that excels beyond ‘basic’ sensory.

* So a dog that can always sense when its owner is coming home,

* Waking up in the middle of the night and feeling something is ‘strange’,

* Or you and a friend laughing about how you were both thinking of Blue Oyster Cult, are all examples of the Sixth Sense in use.

Let me make clear that the Sixth Sense is natural and scientific, not mystical and unexplainable. It’s your body’s ability to pick up on fine energies, or ‘wavelengths’, that have yet to be detectable by today’s crude electronic instruments -and yet, the body, being a sensitive supercomputer, can.

And because it’s a bodily sense, like any muscle or brain tissue, if you don’t use it, it will atrophy. While if you use it, it will develop quickly.

So here we go!

1. The Sixth Sense allows you to feel and detect things BEYOND the basic 5 senses.

Psychic Sense

Psychic Sense

If you only use the five basic senses for interpreting this world…

* Taste

* Touch

* Smell

* Sound

* Sight

…Everything you can know and understand will remain as basic as everyone else’s.

But with the Sixth Sense you can feel and see energy, sense thoughts, anticipate emerging situations, and many, many other things!

Everybody already has this sense naturally; they just have no idea how to use it nor are they aware of its value.

Imagine going your whole life as deaf, then all the sudden being able to hear; any idea what that would be like?

You would now detect a whole new dimension to EVERYTHING! The leaves on trees make a rustling sound, the sounds in the distance tell me what’s going on in the next room or miles away – Everything would change!

That’s what its like to have an active Psychic Sense; you gain a normally-hidden layer of understanding to everything. It truly is a superior advantage!

And with a little practice the Sixth Sense becomes a natural part of all your senses. Imagine how your world would change with this new ability to observe.

How much faster would you become Enlightened having a new sense?

2. The Sixth Sense allows you to Communicate with ‘God’.
Spiritual people of all kinds long for communion with God.

God doesn’t have the means of communicating as humans do. But God can communicate through ‘Vibration’ or Energy. This form of communication is very real and can fulfill those who seek it.

It’s called ‘learning to listen’, and you do it by quieting your mind and paying attention to extremely subtle forms of inner-sensation. This is a skill that takes some refinement to achieve, but is not hard with the right training. Meditation is a great way to learn how to do this.

The key that makes it all possible is the Sixth Sense, because you ‘listen’ by feeling, which is the basis of the Sixth Sense. Learn to allow your subtle sensory to pick up on these kinds of ‘Vibratory Information’ and soon you will feel closer to ‘The One’ than you ever have.

3. The Sixth Sense lifts the veil of How Things Work.
The Sixth Sense is a tremendous Learning Accelerator.

By applying your new sense to techniques that use it, such as OBEs, Psychometry, Assimilation, or Remote Viewing, you suddenly can explore the inner-workings of the ‘Matrix’ of this dimension.

For example, Psychometry brings you face-to-face with Sixth Sense data, Remote Viewing shows how mobile the mind actually is, and Assimilation offers you the living experience of another thing.

The experiences from such techniques can be very powerful and will force you to reconsider the world you thought you knew – This is the essence of ‘Awakening’.

Say there are some scientists racing to calculate a theory for the Big Bang. And let’s say, because they are all very smart and are fairly conventional, all use the five basic senses to draw conclusions and thus are able to bring, say, five variables per sense for their calculation.

25 variables to calculate the Big Bang.

Now, let’s say you come along, as a scientist also tackling the Big Bang theory. But maybe you wear Birkenstocks and are not so conventional, but you have an active Since Sense and are not afraid to use it.

Since the Sixth Sense is basically a super sensitive tool for gathering more data, you can then bring in another five variables for your calculation, because you are using one more natural sense that the others are not.

You have an advantage: 30 variables to calculate the Big Bang.

Some of the greatest scientists, teachers, and pioneers of our society have been shown to accept and use Sixth Sense data. When you hear, “I was being pulled in this direction” or “the chalk took on a life of its own” it’s a good indication of the intuition at work. But actually, it simply shows they are flexible thinkers who are able to use more resources.

4. The Sixth Sense tunes you into your ‘Inner Navigator’.
One of the best tools you have for finding what you need in life is the ‘little voice inside’. The Navigator is a part of your inner intuition that knows when something is right for you, when its time for a change, and sometimes when you simply need to do something that seems random but is actually very important.

But few people have learned to listen to it. After all, it’s hard to; that little voice is so often drowned out by our common thoughts and daily concerns.

However, building up the Sixth Sense gives your Navigator a bullhorn. Before you know it, you’ll have a new resource of confidence within yourself.

5. Superior Psychological Development
Enlightenment includes the pursuit of psychological and behavioral refinement. During this pursuit inner issues become evident and thus present the opportunity to handle them. But did you know that the further you peer into the self, the more essential the Sixth Sense becomes?

The state of meditation is the prime period for true self-observation. No other time are the necessary qualities for this observation present. The ability to quiet the mind and peer into your physical mechanisms is essential for identifying ‘dead weight’.

Past memories, unresolved injuries, false ideas, bad thought habits, long standing opinions, and limits in perception are some of the items that arise.

Conventional self-study and therapy can be important, but alone does not amount to the level of introspection required for a pupil of enlightenment. The Sixth Sense is absolutely essential in sensing the deep origins of ideas and the micro mechanics of the brain. Learning how to use it in this way will give you superior advantages.

For example, while using your Sixth Sense you can identify the presence of neurotransmitter stimulants or suppressors that routinely maintain behavior. This is important because when you know your thoughts are being controlled, you take back the power to guide your own mind.

Because the Sixth Sense deals with extremely subtle sensations, you are not dealing with thoughts or ideas – they are too crude and slow. The Sixth Sense can assess arrays of sensation all happening within the same moment. Someone practiced can target the item in question and consciously ‘zoom in’ to follow a path to a result.

6. Condition the Governor
Enlightenment is all about redefining your understanding of things because of new discoveries of personal experience. But as anyone who has attempted this will find, the brain already has a preferred way of seeing things, thank you very much.

This part of the brain that limits what it will allow you to see, feel, know, and redefine is called the ‘Governor’, named after the device that keeps cars from going over a certain speed.

The Governor’s job actually makes a lot of sense: it keeps you from seeing things that it considers ‘unnecessary’, like the veins in your eyes, and even certain stimulus that could dangerously overload the brain.

The problem is that it also blocks you from seeing energy, it openly doubts your confidence in healing, and it works to convince you that your spiritual pursuits are in vain. Starting to see the dilemma?

This is where the Sixth Sense can help. By working with the Sixth Sense to establish ‘paranormal experiences’, these accumulated experiences teach the Governor to adapt to an ever-evolving reality.

If you can teach your Governor that the things you are learning are safe and real, paranormal experiences will get easier and progressively enhanced.

7. Physical Health and Bodily Communication.
Want to live longer and healthier? Learn to build a relationship with the cells of your body; they are living organisms too, with needs and desires. Help them and they’ll help you.

Think of your body like an economy. An economy needs different things to run: water, energy, stimulus, vegetables, love, and a lot of other things.

So what happens when your body needs something? Actually, it lets you know. But unless you have a way of paying attention, you won’t hear, and the economy falters.

Learning to ‘listen’ starts with basic awareness and spans into the use of the Sixth Sense. The Sixth Sense is a sensitive tool that can detect various subtle needs of the body. That whim you had yesterday for an Orange – did you act on it? Ever wonder where that craving came from? It could have been millions of living cells desiring a missing nutrient.

Now let me ask you something. If you can hear your body’s cells using the Sixth Sense, is it possible also to communicate back? Perhaps have them carry out orders? Fight Sickness?

Hmmmmm…

8. The Sixth Sense will preserve your life.
This section actually carries a dual meaning; the other being your spiritual life.

The more enlightened you become, the more you become a beacon of light. As you may know by now, forces resist this emergence.

Because the instinctual desire to live is so powerful, the natural Sixth Sense of the body has no problem peaking when threatened. No different than the deer that becomes skittish.

Additionally, many of the other tools of the Sixth Sense together form a protective net: Knowing the intentions of others, tracing all likely outcomes, the ability to act according to intuition – all tools brought by the Sixth Sense.

On lighter note, sometimes the Sixth Sense helps to preserve your immediate health. Being aware enough to know that that sandwich ‘just didn’t smell/feel/look right’ can be that deep knowingness that animals commonly display when in the same circumstance.
Summary
In summary, if you are interested in Enlightenment or Awakening you are probably looking to EXPERIENCE the profound.

There’s nothing wrong with that – experiences lead to true understanding. But unless you have a tool that can allow you to begin to peek behind the veil of the mundane, it will always remain something you know is there but can’t seem to savor. I hope this article has helped you.

Does Gaia Have an Imagination?

Does Gaia have an Imagination?

Explore a perspective that pushes the imagination as we see the connection between technology, global communication and the human experience. We imagine that the planet is a living organism, reflecting on its own existence and role within the universe. We will ponder and identify a great shift of consciousness happening right now! What is this great feeling of momentum that’s happening on a global level? We can all feel it. Is the Earth like a sleeping giant rustling in its sleep? The planet is awakening!

The Mind Of Gaia

The Mind Of Gaia

How Gaia Imagines
Man has just turned a page in his history and evolution as we are engaging the 21st century. Our technology is increasing at an exponential rate and our global community is starting to feel closer and closer together. When we look at our technology, there is one thing that really rises to the surface. Mankind’s ability to share its cultures with each other, via music, art, entertainment and movies, is light years from what it was even fifteen years ago much less any other time in our history. Is it possible that our art, music, philosophy and even movies are the imagination of the Earth?

At first glance this concept will seem logical and even ordinary to some. To others there is a glimmer of something deeper beneath this basic observation. Many of us feel a movement beneath the surface. A deeper current beneath the surface ripples of our time. Something that feels like there is a great change about to happen that is so monumental we can’t put our fingers on it. We know it’s there but how do we identify what it is?

Our logic tells us that the changes in technology are leading to a culmination of events. We envision exploring space, or technology that changes the world. The truth is technology is constantly changing the world from year to year.

But the deeper revelation is that why is the technology there in the first place? It’s obvious that the communication between people almost anywhere on this globe is at paradigm shifting levels. The simple fact that there are billions of text messages, instant messaging and voice mails spanning the globe, all happening in real time is in fact staggering. This communication is similar to thought of the human brain as billions of signals rapid fire in an instant from neuron pathway to pathway sending and receiving information all in a nanosecond!

Is it so hard to imagine that the planet is a living organism, collecting experiences and having reflective thought? If our technology is like brain activity for the planet than what is the mechanism behind movies, art, entertainment and philosophy? Is it the imagination of a being that is vastly larger? If human beings are the central nervous system of the planet, than our collective pondering and self reflection as a species on a macro scale is the planet thinking and reflecting on its existence. Simply as we reflect, so does Earth.

Never before in the history of the Earth has a teenager from Cairo been able to read about the philosophy of Nietzsche, or watch a movie like the Matrix all from the laptop in his room and then create a u tube video talking about it. He can listen to a song talking about the human connection and instant message his friend in Japan. If we step back from our normal perspective, we will see a micro look into the reflections of now. We will also see a macro look at the reflections of the planet as an evolving being. A living organism!

We share ideas and concepts that are zipping across the airwaves and the internet as fast as our brain send signals to different parts of our bodies. Every time people reflect across the globe on everything from a concept in a movie, a brilliant novel, or a new song speaking of life, love, and the human experience, the planet is on a macro level reflecting on its existence and its own role in the universe. Every time a new movement of art, philosophy or movie concept is circulated world wide the planet’s imagination grows and expands!

We have all as a species been reflecting on our existence and our purpose, since the dawn of mankind. But it is only in this new age where the ability to reflect as a global community is reaching amazing heights of connectivity and fluidity. Perhaps this is the great undercurrent of movement we all feel instinctively? Perhaps this is part of a great awakening for the being we live within, contributing our reflections, our loves, losses our gains? The Earth is awakening!

Spiritual Awareness Begins With Non-Thought: Milarepa’s Cave

To begin to develop our spiritual awareness we must perfect the ability to still our mind. Once this state is achieved it will be much easier to return there and the real work of growth can occur. When a thought arises we attach ourselves to it with all the intensity of a mother protecting her young. The trick is to remain unattached to our thoughts. Allow the thought to enter and just flutter away. Find the space between your thoughts, be aware of the feeling you get and experience a deep and powerful awareness.

Milarepa’s Cave

“When the yogi Milarepa was living in a cave, his only possession was a clay bowl in which he cooked nettles. Two hunters who had seen the smoke from his fire came to the cave at night to steal some food. When they began to search the cave, Milarepa laughed and said, ‘I am a yogi, and during the day I can find little to eat. How do you expect to find anything at night? This is a dark, empty place – there is nothing to take away.'”

When the mind is still, thoughts are like drawings on water  – before we finish drawing, they flow away. Some people can see a thought when it arises, and then like snow in California, it is gone beforre it touches the ground. When we meditate our mind should be like Milarepas cave – uncluttered. In the same manner when we do not let our minds fill with thoughts, negative forces will have nothing to grasp, and so they cannot be of harm to us.
