Most of the dreams and fantasies you have revolve around you being the person who belongs to them. Most of the excitement is in you being the person who experiences these fantasies in a specific way as a particular individual. In your fantasies, when you daydream, you usually play a part or role in the fantasy. In your part or character's role, you are a specific type of person who looks, dresses and acts in a particular way. Essentially, the best part of the fantasy is where you are the individual who the fantasy belongs to. To reiterate what I’m suggesting, if you fantasize about winning an Emmy award for best actor, you will receive that award as the great actor you would have to be. You wouldn't walk up to the podium seeing yourself as an accountant for a small firm.

A strong influencer that will make or break your attraction-success is your personal beliefs about yourself. Your beliefs dictate your final results because your beliefs become your truth. If you don't believe you can belong to the lifestyle or experience you desire, then you need to find that person within you (the part of you) who could belong to it because the beliefs you have of yourself can be a game-changer. Therefore, your self-beliefs are very important when attempting to deliberately manifest and should always be a top priority. Otherwise, if you think you should make self-improvements and don't, then your results will be tainted by the limiting beliefs you have of yourself. These are learned beliefs that need to be removed.

Unfortunately, we can't just change our beliefs overnight or remove harmful, learned beliefs. However, we can make the correct changes to ourselves that will allow new circumstances in, which will create a more solid confidence. The culmination of your new confidence and new experiences will birth new and beneficial beliefs. This, in turn, will place you at a higher starting point during your next attempt to deliberately manifest. Therefore, sometimes attempting to obtain the ultimate prize isn't an option. That said, stay aware of the beliefs you have about yourself when deliberately manifesting. As long as you diligently work towards having beneficial beliefs, you will eventually get closer to the ultimate goal-point.

Let's say you fantasize about being someone who turns heads at the beach with your perfect summer-body only to have self-doubt and confusion ruin it. You may suddenly experience past issues that make you feel negative emotions. Perhaps you become scared of the thought of too much attention as that brought on many bad experiences in your past. Maybe you need to strengthen your interpersonal skills because the extra weight is protection against being singled out. Only you will know because your subconscious will let you know. An inner struggle is taking place because most of the fantasy is what you have to offer it. Therefore, to bring that fantasy to fruition, you first need to feel comfortable with having a perfect body, let alone, have one. After that, you have to get the right swimsuits; then you have to find the active beaches. Once this is all done, you can go out and experience your fantasy. We are in the relative and because of this, we need to meet our miracles halfway. Your subconscious knows this and is bringing you doubt because you need to address a few things before you can run off to a beach and show off.

Therefore, a good indicator that an area needs to be worked on is if you find yourself tormented by negative inner-voices that point in a specific area's direction while thinking of your desires. These seemingly counterproductive thoughts are the hurdles you need to overcome before pursuing more desirable experiences. If the state of being you are currently in doesn't match the state of being you wish to be in, during the experience you seek, then you should make modifications. Find where the resistance is and write it down, then work on it. Let your intuition be your guide.

To sum it up, if there is something you think you need to do for yourself that would have a direct influence on the outcome of the experience you desire, then start with that. Try finding the modification(s) that, if achieved, will make the birth of the experience you seek the inevitable next step. Doing this will help simplify your goals which will help you find a comfortable starting point. That being said, what are the improvements you would like to make? Do you want to quit smoking or lose weight? Do you wish to improve your social skills? Usually, the necessary changes would be the ones that boost your confidence which is essential if you want to be a part of a better experience. You want to belong to it and let it belong to you before you attempt to draw it in.

Is there someone you can’t stand? Wanna get rid of them? Well then look no further because I know of a fun contract-destroying exercise. In this exercise, you get to breach an interpersonal contract, all the while loving every minute of it. The way to do this is to raise your vibrations.

First of all, the reason you are in a rut is when you first met this person you either did not show this person any love or you flat-out did not like this person at all. Simultaneously, this person also didn’t express or feel any love for you or express any positive energy towards you, whatsoever. It might have been more subtle where you were minding your own business and ended up being a target.

Whatever the circumstances are, the two of you have a vibe clash. The cause can be transparent or something on a deep subconscious level. Regardless of your case, you still had something to do with this bond. If you showed love or expressed positive energies, and that person accepted it, you would have bonded in a positive way. However, if you projected positive energy on a deep level and that person chose not to accept it, then you both would have repelled.

Firstly, you need to realize that action alone “or being nice” isn't the recipe for being an admirable individual. The recipe is to have a genuine affinity for other people while having a genuine affinity for yourself as well. When you show a genuine affinity for another person, they will feel it and know it. When this affinity for yourself and others is your truth, and you feel it, others will feel it too and feel comfortable in your presence. It must come from the heart, not from the brain or from the norm of what you should do and what should make you get along with others.

Anyway, let's go back to that relationship where the two of you hate each other. You both do not express any love for each other and because of this, you are both engaged in a very unpleasant relationship, contract bond. That said, here is how to get out. I want you to get out a piece of paper. Next, you are to write all the things you like about that person. I am aware that pouring sand in your eyes seems like a more pleasant experience than this. However, it is imperative that you understand this so you don't make this mistake again.

You are to think of this person and try to locate as many similarities as you can. You are to look for similarities that make you both attractive and strong. You should also seek admirable qualities in this person you wish you could improve on. After that, find the similarities in both of you that need work and aren't so attractive. Don't only find what's unattractive in that person because that's what got you into this mess. Only find the unattractive traits that you know for a fact you both have. You will more than likely find alpha traits in that person you also have. You more than likely will find things you don't like about yourself that the other person most likely dislikes in his or herself too. However, that's not of your concern.

((Your primary concern is to find all the things that make you two alike, both good and bad.))

Stay more focused on the good traits, but stay aware of the dark side in the two of you that are similar. Become aware that the two of you struggle with the same issues as a result of your dark sides and as a result of living in this world. General things like the similarities in age, nationality, and profession should also be included. The way to overcome blockages (if you are struggling with this) is to think of that person sitting with you on your couch in your living room. After that, think of yourself in their living room, sitting on their couch. You will have to be imaginative when imagining their living room as I'm sure the two of you never socially bonded on this level. After you can do that and be comfortable, you can begin your list.

I would like to emphasize that I'm not suggesting you force yourself to be kind to this person or do much different than you have been doing unless what you are doing is mean or negatively aggressive. The only thing I'm asking you to do is recognize that person’s exceptional qualities and what makes you two alike, then feel it. That is all you have to do. The word “tolerate” doesn't exist in the world of deliberate manifestation. Tolerating means you're going to put up with it, and you're going to suffer in silence. Tolerating nonsense is not what I'm suggesting you put yourself through. I am suggesting you stay focused on the good traits and similarities. There is no need to change a thing. Deal with this person as usual, but with your new state of mind. Read your list until you can feel that bond whenever you think of this person.

Keep reading your notes until every time you think of that person you recognize and feel their great qualities and how similar the two of you are. An amazing thing will happen if you do this correctly. That person will disappear out of your life in a way that you no longer interact with him or her. In rare cases, you might get along with that person, but that's usually not the case because that person typically won't be willing to see the better side of you. Love being the universal winner will cause that person to move away from you. In some cases, you might find yourself moving up to a better area, or a better position, or a better situation that is away from that person.

Keep in mind that after you start this exercise you may notice you act differently around this person. You may notice you respond to this person or speak to this person differently. You may also notice that you are suddenly able to avoid this person effortlessly. By doing this contract-breach focus, you will alter your magnetic field and ultimately alter their existence in your life. I have done this with great success, and if you do this correctly you will experience less weight on your shoulders. Make sure to make this a habit with the new people in your life so you will move forward agreeing to pleasant contracts. Otherwise, you will end up attracting the same person with a different name.

As a side note, if your view of others is bad, then you are pushing away a lot of potentially fulfilling relationships. This is because the people who you see the bad in sees the good in themselves and you. These people refuse to see it any other way, and for that, you will repel them. In other words, these rules go both ways. For the sake of your well-being, choose the side of unity. The ride in life will be a lot smoother. If you don't have a favorable view towards others and believe that the people you're going to be around will annoy you, then you are going to attract others with that same belief.

On a final note, you would be surprised how you physically change in the eyes of others when your attitude changes. Your opinions and beliefs about yourself and others are felt and sensed by others. Let's say you're wearing a white shirt and you spill a drop of mustard on it, during lunch. The more you think about it, the more everyone else is going to notice it. It's a very similar concept. What you focus on, concerning yourself, is what others see in you. If the other person has the mustard stain and you stay focused on it, then that person won't feel comfortable around you and will avoid you. Your attention plays a considerable role in your relationships with others as well as the maintaining of your contracts.

I remember when I was in my early twenties, standing in a supermarket in front of the refrigerated-drink section. I came from an interview that didn't go well, and I was a bit bummed out because it would have paid well. I was staring at the drinks but wasn't there mentally. It was “lights on nobody home,” so to say when a distributor approached me and asked me if he can help me find something. I said, “No thank you.” I then picked something and left. Halfway to my car, in the parking lot, a premonition slapped me in the face and said, “The right answer was yes you can help me. You can help me get the job you are doing.” I don't know what distributors are paid today, but back in the day, they did very well. Also, he was an employee of a well-known beer distribution company.

The moral of this story is you must always be ready and always be looking. This is done by staying intentional and in the now. Had I remained focused on my intentions to find a job that pays well, along with my intentional role of being an excellent choice for hire, I would've asked the distributor that question at the blink of an eye. It would have been automatic. I was already moving; I just needed to be able to know when to intercept or know when I was being intercepted. Unfortunately for me, I didn't.

As you move through the day, you must remain within your intentions when interacting with anyone or anything. Keep your intentions in mind for everything you do. Look for the doorways everywhere you go. Make sure your intentions are always in check, so you are always prepared. Make sure you are always ready and always expecting, so you are in the moment.

Here is another thought. There is a saying that goes, “leave your problems at the door.” When I had the dreadful experience of promoting penny stock, the boss would say this several times a week. What this means is if you left for work right after an argument with your spouse, you need to remember that when you walk through the door of the building you are a promoter. If you remain an irritated spouse during work, you will waste the day. You must remember to update your role as the shifts take place into new segments of your day.

What this means for you is during your endeavors you will have to hit your “refresh button” many times throughout the day. Just like movies and plays have scenes, so do you throughout the day. The difference is that, on average, you have more scenes that are much shorter than that of a movie or play. Every time you enter a new scene or segment, you must reevaluate your role. You must evaluate whether you want to remain in the role you are in at the moment or shift to a different one.

Let's say you are going to a store to buy something. Scene one would be your driving into the parking lot to find a space. Scene two would be you getting out of your car and making sure it's secured. Scene three would be you walking through the parking lot towards the store. Scene four would be you entering the store. Scene five would be you looking for the item you came for. Scene six would be when you find the item. Scene seven would be you walking towards the cashier to pay for the item, and I will stop there because I think you get the idea.

Every time you begin to move through a new scene or moment you must hit the refresh button and acknowledge the most appropriate role that will suit your overall intentions according to the new scene you are in. It's tedious at first, but as you keep consciously practicing, it will become second nature to you. There is a unique essence or feeling you should get from each of your roles. Remember to focus on the feeling and essence they spark up so every time you reach a new scene you merely need to revisit the emotion. This will be more instant and effective than mentally voicing words all day long. Reviewing a list of titles for your intentional roles while feeling the essence of each title will help you access the feeling quickly. Transitioning between titles will also be swift.

Always be in real-time. Stay away from your mind and your daydreams when you are in “ready mode.” Stay away from yesterday and tomorrow, and get back to your senses right here, right now. The more intentional you are, and the more ready you are, the more natural and quicker your transition will be. Even when you are alone and want to tune everything out and relax, be your role in “relaxed-mode.” Who you are when no one is looking is the defining factor of your true character and ultimately your destiny. As long as you are conscious, you are manifesting. Who you are when no one is around also determines who and what you are going to attract into your life.

Trillions of things are happening every second on this planet. Even when you are alone, you are still influencing unseen events with your gravitational presence in this universe. Therefore, it is best to always be the role and state of mind that belongs to the life you desire because there is constant movement and change happening around you at all times. By staying in your role and the moment, you allow whatever opportunity that is around the corner to come into your reality and join you to have an experience with you. Staying in your role and intentions at all times (Even when you are alone) contributes to the manifestation of your choice. Right now, you are resonating with the universe, and right now there are many shifts and setups taking place to balance with your resonance. As long as you are conscious, you are creating your tomorrow.

Stay open to all options and avoid being selective when you are in pursuit. Do not only be your desired role when you think you are in more promising circumstances according to your limited awareness of all possibilities. You do not know how it will come to you, or when, and will always be a bit surprised when your attractions come through. Therefore, by knowing this, it makes sense to always be on guard and ready to interject or be interjected.

Let your walls down and intentionally flow with reality. Attempting to hide behind a “proverbial wall” while selectively interacting with who you think is a good prospect, is ineffective. This is because you will only know who the real prospects are by letting everyone in your space for evaluation. If you hide behind a wall and interject selectively, you will grow bored as the many opportunities continue to pass by.

You must tell the universe what you want to experience and let the universe take care of the rest. The universe works efficiently when you fully allow the energies to flow into your life. If you are a moderator of the flow, then you are placing restrictions on the possibilities and sabotaging your opportunities. If you choose to micromanage, then you will end up in a stagnant place.

Affirmation Journal / Do You Have Motivational-Speech Syndrome?
« on: December 29, 2019, 05:00:32 PM »
Doubt sometimes hits us shortly after we feel very motivated to do something and begin a new journey. I like to call this "motivational-speech syndrome." To be brief, most of us have heard a stellar motivational speech, which after hearing, was ready to take on the world. Shortly afterward, we felt worse than we did before we listened to that motivational speech.

I will speculate and say that maybe you began to work on your awesome new life while following the suggestions of whoever conducted the seminar. A few days later, doubt started to sink into your head and you felt intimidated by life. You looked around and took in the entire world, noticing how small you feel. You wondered how you could ever make an impact big enough to create a significant difference in your own life. That said, always bite off what you can chew. Keep the steps small enough for you to be able to take, yet big enough to keep you excited.

The more diligent you are in implementing the small steps or the little things, the sooner you will look back and realize how far you have gone. Think of it like cleaning a house and finishing choirs. You have to vacuum and mop the floors. You have to dust the furniture. You have to clean the windows and organize the garage. You have to do the laundry and fold the clothes. You have to wash the dishes that are piled up in the sink. You have to organize a few messy rooms. After that, you have to mow the lawn, trim the bushes, and power-wash the driveway. If you were to think of doing all of that at once, you would probably have to take a seat because you would feel overwhelmed. However, if you wrote it all down as a list and tackled one thing at a time, you would most likely get it all done within a day. You would be done before you knew it because you paced yourself.

During your attempts to deliberately manifest, a brief moment of feeling overwhelmed is enough to cut the flow of energy and set you back a bit. To avoid being overwhelmed, it is enough to tell yourself to do something every day, no matter how small it may seem. Doing this alone will make dramatic improvements in your life, within a year. I remember I made a New Year's resolution to spend the entire first month of that year perfecting a daily plan to use for the rest of the year. I followed my plan religiously, and not only was the rest of that year productive, but the following two years after that were productive as well. Duration is far more effective than scattered spurts of high intensity when undergoing a transition. Like the tale of the tortoise and the hare racing each other, you must be like the tortoise who was paced and diligent towards the finish line.

Personally, I like listening to motivational speakers and if you also like a motivational speech then here's my suggestion to you. The common mistake people make when listening to a motivational speech is they listen to it once then go out and try to take on the world. My suggestion is to get ten or more seminars on audio and listen to them for an hour a day. Let's say you have ten seminars that are three hours long, each. If you listen to an hour a day, then by the time the month is up you will have listened to them all. You can get more seminars or you can listen to them again for another month. Motivational seminars and motivational speeches are effective when you continuously listen to them. This is why I make sure to listen to affirmations once a day. The negative voices will always find a way back into your head if you don't continuously practice thinking positive. Just like everything else in life, your mindset is either moving you in a positive direction or slowly sinking you into a less desirable state of mind and direction. You are either going up or down. There are no plateaus. Let's face the facts, this world is a negative place and it's too easy to sink into a dark place, mentally. You will draw yourself closer to where your attention is, and that focus is based on your awareness. If you are where you don't want to be in life, and you remain aware of it, then you are going to stay there.

The famous phrase said by an American dramatist named Clare Boothe Luce is, “No good deed goes unpunished," and it is a phrase that everyone can relate to. In a nutshell, it means it’s not uncommon to do something kind or thoughtful for someone without suffering adverse consequences of any magnitude, which includes being taken advantage of.

When we go out of our way to do a good deed, sometimes we give with the intention of receiving a reward from a higher power or from the person we did the good deed for. The problem with giving while in this state of mind is you cancel out the purpose of doing a kind act. Remember, our universe is just a group of mirrors. You can't manipulate a mirror; you can only make changes to yourself if you want your reflection to change. Just like you can't manipulate a mirror, you will never be able to manipulate the universe. Even if you were to lie to yourself, you would receive a reflection that would deceive you and eventually put you in an undesirable position. This means if you give with the intention to gain a return, you will only attract someone who will do the same by trying to take a mile after you gave an inch. Fortunately, there is a way to do good for others that will show returns, but it's a bit of a dichotomy because you aren't supposed to do it for the payback. Instead of looking good to your co-creators, you want to look good for yourself and the universal mirrors.

The way to properly give is first to appreciate what you have to give and appreciate that you have it. Whatever it may be that you give, you should give it while feeling grateful that you are able to give, because you have plenty. By giving with this state of mind you give with pure intentions and are able to forget about it because you aren't looking for anything in return.

Let's say you have a good friend who needs financial help. Maybe he is behind on an electric bill, and if he doesn't pay what he owes, his electricity will be cut off. Let's also say you have plenty of money and you can help your friend. If you were to give the money to your friend, you wouldn't miss it. Of course, you appreciate having money and you work hard for the money you earn as money doesn't grow on trees. You give the money to your friend knowing you have it. If you did it right, you would know what it is to have plenty, make a difference, and be genuinely grateful for your well-being. Instead of seeking the gratitude of your friend, you would be too busy feeling gratitude for your abundance. At first, It will feel strange to help someone then sincerely thank a higher power for being able to do it.

If your mindset is in a place where you acknowledge you have it, and you give it to a respectable source who truly needs it and isn't taking advantage of you, then you can give thanks for having it and move on with your life of abundance. However, let's say you do a good deed just to do a good deed. Let's say you do it for a “thank you” or positive acknowledgment. You do it because you want someone to acknowledge your good side and you want to feel special. You want to prove to yourself you are a good person by seeking out the cheerful reciprocation of a thankful human being. You do it because you're acting out a role and want someone to play the part where he or she says you are terrific or whatever warm fuzzy word comes to mind. Maybe you feel guilty and want to make it up to a higher good. Maybe you want to be able to tell others what great things you did for your fellow humankind. Do you see where I'm going with this? If Truth were an entity and you wanted to get the instant, undivided attention of this entity, then this is what you need to do because these scenarios are like the smell of sex to Truth. Do a good deed with alternative intentions, other than to be genuinely kind, and the wrath of Truth will be drawn to you faster than a fly is drawn to poop. Simply put, the wrath of Truth upon you is the result of your insincerity. When we are insincere, our beliefs, intentions, actions, and expectations are out of balance.

As human beings, when we do something for someone, we would like to be recognized and thanked for doing it. This recognition would require that the person you're doing a good deed for understands you're doing a good deed for that person. There is a rule about believing in something while you're doing it. If it is not true, the more you try to convince yourself, the more whiplash you get. This whiplash is usually what happens when you do a good deed solely for the sake of doing a good deed because you did it for a gesture of gratitude (which counteracts the purpose of doing the “good deed”). You expected a gesture of gratitude because you believed you were helping out this person, which may not be the case. This person might find your assistance to be intrusive.

On a similar note, if that person is supposed to be in a predicament and you are trying to help get that person out for the sake of being a hero, you may be interfering with a lesson or experience that person needs to learn. What I'm trying to say is, you might be doing someone a disservice. Furthermore, if that person needs to have a specific experience or lesson to learn and you are taking that away, then you will get the whiplash for it. In other words, you will accrue negative karma and will have to endure an experience to understand that some people need to be left to their own devices.

If your intentions are pure and the good deed makes a disaster, you will be exempt from the crucifixion you would receive if the good deed were laced with your ego. Here's a simple rule of thumb to live by concerning generosity. If it would bother you to move on knowing you did not help, or the person in question would be without help, then assist that person. An attitude like this will spare you punishment for doing a good deed. Otherwise, don't do it. Maybe the young girl with the flat tire makes you think of your daughter, so you help her change it. Perhaps the old man who is stuck on a bench reminds you of your grandfather, so you help get him a wheelchair. Whatever your reason, you do it so you can look in the mirror with dignity for one more day, and nothing else. If you genuinely do a good deed and things go awry, you will only get a small slap on the wrist. You won't be beaten into submission because your ego was involved.

All that being said and for a quick recap, every time you give, you must finish with pure inner gratitude for what you have after you give. Leave your ego out of the process and simply reflect on how well you have it as you give. Be thankful you have whatever it is you offer and be thankful you have enough to pull someone else out of their rut. That recognition will shoot through the clouds, into the universe, and reflect back to you. That recognition will begin to be your new truth and truth of your real personal power.

Just some food for thought…...I'm going to talk about the so-called dream.

In the beginning, many people who make it to the top one-percent, financially, start off similarly. They will live in an eight-bedroom, six-bathroom house with a pool and a hot-tub, inside a screened-in patio. In the patio will be a kitchenette section with a grill, a mini-refrigerator and a bar setup overlooking a lake. They will have a dock with a boat sitting on a lift. The house will have a three-car garage with three luxury-cars parked inside. Outside the garage, there will be a driveway with an extended drop-off area to drop someone off in front of the enclosed courtyard surrounding a three-tier stone fountain in front of a labyrinth front door. The landscaping is always lush and well-manicured because there is always a crew of some kind maintaining the property that is commonly a one-acre lot. There is often a maintenance team working inside as well, making improvements or fixing something. Because of all the required maintenance and upkeep these houses require, it's not uncommon for these homeowners to hire property management companies to manage their home.

I realize today that this so-called dream is dramatically changing as it is becoming less of a preferred lifestyle. Most people who live a lavish lifestyle end up leaving it, never to look back again. I know this because I have worked for this class of people. I have observed and noticed that over the years they get tiresome and slowly let their investment rot when they begin losing the motivation to keep things up. Usually, this happens when they realize the dream lifestyle is more of a headache than it is glamorous.

I remember going to a house to do a job at seven in the morning. When I arrived, I parked in their driveway because if I parked on the curb, I would have had to walk a few hundred feet to get to the front door. I drove around the full-circle, drop-off area next to the in-law suite behind a canary-yellow Lamborghini Diablo. I quickly noticed the mangled spoiler dangling over the bumper, held by the brake-light wire. The car was dirty and covered in morning dew. Leaning on the car were two garbage pails and the bottom part of a children's plastic basketball hoop that is typically filled with sand or water to keep it stable. I remember looking at it and forming a thesis on why I was looking at what I was looking at.

Here is my take on how or why a $250,000.00 car was neglected and left outside where the elements will beat on it all day and night. First of all, before I start, you must realize that we are all limited. There is only so much you can do on a daily basis. Most of the time, I don't see people buying many things and enjoying them all, equally. Most of these people would build a mini-empire only to give it all up and live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with a basic economy sedan in the garage. This usually happens after their motivation to maintain their empire dwindles and they start to see their investments start to deteriorate with time.

When you own a huge million-dollar home, you have to run it like a hotel. There is always someone manicuring the landscaping and lawn. There are always housekeepers cleaning up the house while the maintenance people are making a mess. It's as if the owners never enjoy true privacy because they are too busy managing others to keep their house in check. Owning a home like that is very draining (to say the least). It's as if most of the people who live like this need to get it out of their system and be able to say they did it. It is short-lived and soon ends when the owners realize it wasn't what they thought it would be. I'm not suggesting that everyone who lives like this bails out but, from what I have personally witnessed, it is more common than not.

Here is what I have personally witnessed on countless occasions. I will start with the first item that stops being used which is the boat. Most people who buy a boat will practically live on it for a few months then never look at it again. If you don't run a boat engine once a week, you will soon run into problems when trying to take it out for a ride. Also, the entire system needs to be flushed, lubricated and re-serviced after a year of non-use. This is usually done after a few years of non-use before being sold for a fraction of what it originally cost. The next thing to be ignored is the pool, yet the headaches of maintaining one remain. It is at this point the homeowner swears that the next house won't have a pool. However, the hot-tub might be used during the year when the weather is cool. Also, if the grill setup had been installed to complete the tropical-getaway pool-vibe, then it will become a home for rodents. Next to be ignored is the motorcycle. Similar to the boat, it must be thoroughly flushed if not used for more than a year. Also, the battery will need to be replaced. The next thing to go is the fountain. Usually, after the water pump burns out for the fourth time (because it was left to dry out), it is drained and used as a gigantic planter, which looks elegant in my opinion. Soon the only rooms in the house that are occupied are the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. I had a customer who had no idea what the other side of his house looked like. His exact words were, “It's been four years since I have been to that side of the house.” The last thing to go would be the house because life's too short to battle something so big that deteriorates so fast. When these people end up living in a lovely three-bedroom, two-bath house in a safe and serene area, they seem more relaxed and happier.

The whole point of writing all of this is to add some dimension to your views on wealth. It is to help you understand that you may be a lot closer to living a lifestyle you cherish than you think. The only way you will know what your relationship to money should be is by coming to terms with what experiences you truly desire to experience. The experiences you wish to have may not require a lot of fiat currency. In fact, I am pretty confident that most of you do not want what you are "supposed" to want.

On a side note, I would like to emphasize that I was talking about the top one-percent in the United States. If you make $32,400.00 or more a year (as of 2019), you are in the top one-percent earning-bracket in the world.

I obtained that figure from this article.

When deliberately manifesting, avoid having any "expectations" regarding the details of the experience you seek. Only have an expectation of having a specific experience. You will be hard-pressed to be able to predict who, what, when, where, and how you will attract when attempting to attract, in order to manifest deliberately. This is because what you attract is a reflection of your entire being and essence. It is a reflection of who you are at your very core which is something that our intellectual thoughts can't comprehend.

Although our logical mind is a wonderful tool, it doesn't have the final say in that which we draw towards us. We know so little about our entire mind, body, and soul. Our intellectual minds are limited to knowing our ego’s identity, and not much more. Your conscious mind and all your mental developments, both socially and academically, are a single-digit-percentage of who you are as a whole. However, the universe reflects one-hundred-percent of who you are in all your attractions. Therefore, you will never attract who, what, when, where, and how you “thought” you would. That said, because like attracts like, and your manifestations are based on the elements you attract, the experiences you manifest will never turn out as expected.

When you think of the term “deliberate manifestation,” remember that it is possible for that manifestation to be twenty-percent deliberate if you only use your mind. The other eighty percent would then pan out by default according to who you are as an entire being. Therefore, events will not happen how you envision they would turn out.

At our level of spiritual development, it is almost impossible for any of us to grasp the totality of who we are, and that's what the universe reflects back to us. It reflects the totality of who we are, and last I checked we only use about ten percent of our brains. Our hearts and spirits are ageless. Our physical conscious minds are relatively new to an eternal universe. Our minds are new to an eternal universe that has been operating under the same rules for an eternity. Our mind is just a tool for us to be able to adapt to and navigate within this third-dimensional reality.

Although our logical construct of thinking constitutes a very limited part of us as a whole, we still need our logical minds to be able to embrace the third-dimensional Earth-human experience, fully. That said, what must be understood about deliberate attraction and manifestation is the results of your efforts will never come to you in a clean, linear fashion as expected. Also, the results of your efforts will never come to fruition how you expected, or along the lines of a plot you expected.

When attempting to deliberately attract and manifest, it is vital that you release your expectations. Put your thoughts to a minimum; follow your heart and raise your awareness. When you are ready to manifest and are deliberately intentional, you must get out of your mind and trust what happens. Follow your heart and stay aware because the five senses you use to navigate within this third-dimensional reality are incapable of navigating you through the shifts of higher vibrating events. Only your heart and spirit can do that. In other words, you must learn to trust your gut feelings all the while going with the flow. Of course, this is only when you are a fully intentional being.

To expand on the reality of actual manifested results, let's take the artist who would envision an art design then set forth to create it on canvas. This is the artist who is not sketching or copying from anything physical. This artist is copying an idea from her mind onto a physical medium. The artist who creates from a thought is very similar to how you will be manifesting. No artist ever ended up with the exact masterpiece envisioned before attempting to create it. Usually, during the process of creating an art piece, the artist hits many points of improvising through intuitive guidance. The artist is still focused on the idea, which is the intentional state of mind needed to follow through. Her intention to create a specific piece of art remains solid in her mind through the entire process. She also believes and knows the project will eventually get done. The rest is left to the joy of the process, and the emotions to be felt upon its completion. It's not uncommon for an artist to gaze upon their finished art in amazement and disbelief because it came out better than expected. An art piece that is perfect, and one-of-a-kind.

When manifesting deliberately for the first time, the worst-case scenario is you won't get anywhere close to what you attempted to manifest, but instead, get closer to figuring out who you truly are and what you truly desire. You would figure this out by knowing where you started and realizing where you ended up. In this worst-case scenario, you will have a better reference for future manifestations. Once you have found enough of yourself, the fruits of your labor will be the life you truly desired all along. You will likely deal with turbulence towards this discovery. Once you unlearn to want what you are supposed to want according to the status quo, the ride will be smoother. Upon your coming to this conclusion and seeking what genuinely fulfills you, all those old empty feelings you once had will start to reside. Remember, your attraction, and manifestation results are directly proportional to all of who you are. All of who you are also includes your mind, but also includes your beliefs, intentions, feelings, genetics, experiences, and so much more. Everything that makes you uniquely you and only you is what makes your experiences unique from everyone else's. For many of you, this will be bad news in the beginning, yet great news towards the end of your journey.

Remember to leave the micromanaging and technicalities for the universe to take care of. Just like when you are going to a beach to surf, you know that waves are being created and will continue to be created when you arrive. Your only task is to know how to get to the breaking point of the waves so you can ride them. That said, a lot of thought and planning happened before your coming here to Earth, and you had a lot to do with it. For that reason, you can not micromanage where you are. When you do return to the absolute, you can micromanage all you want because then you will be more of a creator who materializes your reality instantly. As for now, you are a manifester who lives off the fat of the land in this pre-created reality known as the relative.

I would like you to be aware that appreciation is the alpha and omega of a rewarding manifestation. If the process of manifestation were a bracelet, the clasps that hold it together would be “appreciation.” Simply put, what you appreciate is what you build on, and what you don't appreciate degrades. It's the start and the finish. If you appreciate what you attract and experience, then your starting point for what you attract in the future will start at that higher foundation of appreciation and grow into something bigger and better. If you decide not to deliberately manifest and only appreciate what you have, you will still build on your previous appreciation. From your previous appreciation, you will draw in more rewarding experiences from the new platforms you manifest from.

Besides having an overall appreciation in life, there is one form of appreciation that is still imperative for success, and this includes manifestation success. What I'm talking about is self-appreciation. There is an essential rule for your appreciation to be felt and appreciated by others, and that is to appreciate yourself first. Let's say a person who doesn't take care of himself shows contempt for you and has no problem telling you he doesn't like you. It's evident by his lack of hygiene and poor posture that he doesn't appreciate or even respect himself. Would you lose much sleep knowing this individual doesn't like you? You most likely wouldn’t. You would probably want him to go away and stay away. If that person showed admiration for you, would you want to include a person like this in your circle of friends? Probably not. So remember, people like to have admiration and respect, but from people who appreciate and respect themselves first.

Therefore, the ultimate question of self-appreciation is, “Am I someone whom I would like to meet and get to know?” The answer needs to be a solid yes. The reason is, you and only you will ever be and could ever be the foundation that will support your desires, and worthwhile manifestations rely on a healthy self-esteem. Think of your self-esteem as the plaster and the manifested desires as the pretty, shiny wallpaper you wish to put on the plaster. If the plaster is gritty, you may get the wallpaper on for a moment, only to soon watch it fall off the wall. In other words, attraction isn't like selling an item on a classified ad after you discovered a piece of junk you don't want is a highly coveted antique. According to the law of attraction, if you think you are junk then so will everyone else.

Point being is, how you see yourself is how others will see you. Also, like attracts like. If you don't think highly of yourself then you will be surrounded by people who don't respect you. You can still attract abundance but it most likely won't last if you are dissatisfied with the co-creators who are making it possible for you. For example, let’s say someone lands a job that is a dream come true for this person. The job is very exciting and lucrative. Also, the job requires work-hours that are perfect for this person. However, this person is disregarded by all the people he/she works with. Because of this, the actual work experience gradually becomes more of a nightmare than a dream, as the days progress. This, in turn, will be the reason this person eventually abandons their “dream job,” or gets fired.

Why did this happen? It happened because this person lacks self-worth. This person put gorgeous wallpaper over old, crumbly plaster only to watch it slowly fall off the walls. That’s a lot of invested time to accumulate trash; don't you think? Once you learn to appreciate who you are, that appreciation will grow towards self-esteem and self-respect. Self-appreciation, self-respect, and self-esteem need to be a part of your life if you ever want to manifest worthwhile experiences that will last. The main reason being is, like attracts like.

I definitely will!

Thank You for the kind words!

WOW!! Congratulations!

What's the market like in England for hypnotherapy? Is it a respected profession? Over here, people are solely interested in QHHT, past life regressions, and the like.

Here's a tip. If you want to make that "gray area" of what you can discuss with your clients and what you can't much MUCH wider then get a license in mental health. They are easy to get (over here) and You can pretty much get into anything you want with your client just as long as it's for the purpose of improving their mental health.....which is everything. You can give any help a psychologist can give (ie suggestions/assignments to improve their lives) just as long as it's given with a hypnosis regimen. Of course, I'm in the US so your laws might be a lot more strict.     

As for me, I have been working on making my (as Nev calls it) "mental diet" 100% all day long. No more dabbling! No TV, No radio, No news, No social media, No movies, No distractions! If i want to be entertained I have three options. Listen to an audiobook about being better, listen to uplifting music, or meditate on a better tomorrow. After a week of this, I noticed something amazing. I noticed that all of that crap I have been pumping into my head has been triggering me and conditioning me to mood-swing regularly. The first week on my mental-diet I was still mood-swinging out of habit, and then everything resided. I feel at peace and really good now. This made me realize why I have no clue of what mood people are going to be in from one day to another. Everyone has become impulsive from all the distractions, yet are addicted to the distractions, making it an out of control spiral into.....who knows where.

If you ever find yourself lost in life or confused, and you need to regroup, then remember the three paths and the order in which they should be achieved. The path of power (your purpose), the path of love, and the path of truth. Choosing to pursue the path of love or the path of truth will turn into a nightmare if you don't pursue the path of power first.

Imagine owning an advanced toy robot, but not having the batteries it requires to function. Although you don't have batteries for the toy, you can still fall in love with its beauty and uniqueness. You can also speculate on all the functions you think it can perform. However, it's not until you put batteries in the robot that you will know exactly what it can do and enjoy interacting with it. If you can’t obtain batteries for this robot, then the love you have for it will wither away and your speculations will turn into frustrations, as you will never know what the robot can do. Afterward, you will most likely find yourself going towards the next thrill because the robot only stands on the shelf. The truth of the matter goes from your owning an awesome toy, to owning a dust-collecting shelf-decoration. If I were to replace “toy robot” with “your life,” the parameters would be similar. Without power, you would coexist with limited potential, and your truth will remain unknown. Your co-creators would appreciate you as they see fit and label you as they deem appropriate because you don't express anything. Only until you have personal power will you be able to express in your unique way, and behold evidence of your truth. Until you realize and reveal your own power, you will merely exist in this world.

If you pursue the path of love above power, then all your relationships with your co-creators will never satisfy you as you move through life feeling empty. You will never appreciate others until you can appreciate your contributions and purpose in life. You will never feel you deserve the love and appreciation of others because you won’t understand why you are loved and appreciated. You won't understand why you are loved until you love who you are and how you express who you are. You won’t love who you are until you are genuinely proud of the inner power within you and proud of how you contribute your power to the world. You will appreciate your contributions when they derive from the foundation of your core personal power. This is the core power within you that will be found when you follow your passions. Until you can find your core power and contribute as the person you were meant to be, you will never feel good enough. You will sabotage all of your relationships and situations because no one and nothing will ever be good enough. This is because, instead of finding and expressing the power within yourself, you seek to fill a void from outside yourself. This is a void that cannot be filled by someone else. Only your personal power can fill it. The expression of your true inner power is the part of the puzzle that determines the quality of the overall experiences you take part in.

If you pursue the path of truth over power then you will also end up frustrated if you look outside yourself for the answers. This is because, as you seek the answers to your questions, you will find endless new questions for every speculation and theory you concoct. Each one of these questions has many answers leading to more questions with many answers towards infinity. Each of life’s questions and problems contain a plethora of solutions. One of those solutions within the infinite sea of answers involves the contribution of your personal power, which is your unique thumb-print solution. There is one solution from the many, for each problem, that belongs to you because it is meant for you. That said, unless you find your personal power, every answer you find that doesn’t involve your unique expression will leave you feeling empty. All truths are half-truths, so it is best to find and only focus on the side of every truth that is yours. Everyone else's truth is already occupied by everyone else.

That said, you must realize your power which can only be claimed at this very moment you are currently in. If time is the curse of humankind, then being in the moment will shield you from this curse because that's where your power is. Wherever your attention may be is where your energy and power will go. Your intentions can only exist right now because time doesn't exist. Every time you have an intention, a plan, or a purpose, you are here, right now, at the moment. Stay in your intentions, and you will always stay in the moment.

Motion without intention happens when you lose the moment and are mentally somewhere else, while moving now. The problem with this is you always manifest unless you are asleep. This means that considerable harm can happen to you if you aren't deliberate. Motion gives power, and you are losing power if you are in motion without any present intention to guide you. Therefore, it is always the wiser choice not to give your power and energy until you have intentions for a direction. For you to decide on a path requires your intentions. It takes intentions to deliberately manifest with satisfaction. Intention and motion need always be kept together like a salt and pepper shaker.

When I look around, I see that power is being carelessly dispersed and being readily received with no effort whatsoever from somewhere or someone. This is being done without your knowledge and little compensation because you are distracted. If I were an evil entity and wanted to farm the human race, I would keep things as they are. I would continuously distract you to persuade your minds to live somewhere else as your bodies move in the present so that I can steal the fruits of your hard labor. I would do this to stop you from figuring out that your purpose is to fill your basket with the fruit you cultivated. If you move through life distracted, then by the time you understand your purpose, it's way too late to act on it. The fruits are gone, and you are too tired to keep going, as you are disposed of. The “farmers” would then convince the younger generation to follow in your footsteps. That said, you need to stop being a zombie. Use your power, or it will be taken from you!

The more you know your own truth, the more you will be able to recognize the truth because you will have a very stable reference point within yourself. It is only until you have obtained a robust personal power, and have empowered others with it, that you will be surrounded by love and a truth that is sweet. If your personal power and/or the expression of your power is lacking, then your truth will be unfulfilling, and love will be a dream. Whatever path you choose to take that is absent of your personal power will be a decision to short-sell yourself and live a mediocre life.


Interesting. I just realized my response didn't go through. I don't even get notifications if someone replies.

That's an interesting list you got there. "Tricks Of The Mind" looks interesting! That will probably be my first go-to AND he has an audiobook. Perfect!

Thanks for the list!


I finished "the power of awareness" and it was good. It definitely had a few "eye dilating" zen-moments to it. His exercise to backtrack the entire day backwards at the end of the day to strengthen imagination brain-muscles was fascinating!

Anyway, I was ready to listen to it again when I read a review from a die-hard Nev fan about another audio-book called "how to manifest your desires." He said he read all of his books and this was by far the best. He called it the "Neville Bible."

Soooooo I bought it. It's 9 hours long so I will be occupied for a good month or two. I will definitely listen to the ones I bought again but I'm intrigued. The book is basically a compilation of his greatest teachings. He technically didn't write it.

My brains are fried from his teachings and I find it delightful!

Thank you for introducing me to this genius!

“Vision” defined, in simple terms, is your mental image of what your future could be like. Your vision will dictate your focus, which will dictate your attention, which will keep you in the present moment, ready to respond to all opportunities as they arise. If you can stay in your vision and take advantage of your environment for the sake of living a more fulfilling lifestyle, you will eventually need less vision. This is because your intentions to fulfill your vision will eventually drive on autopilot. Eventually, you will need to use less conscious effort to focus on your vision. This, in turn, will make your travels towards a more fulfilling lifestyle feel natural and normal to you.

Without vision, the beliefs you currently have are in control. That's not exactly a bad thing, but if you desire more out of life, you will most likely have to make changes if you want to stop self-sabotaging beliefs. What's convenient about creating a vision is you don't have to pick and jab at your subconscious for results. You only need to stay in tune with your vision, then deal with suppressed issues from the past as they arise, because they will.

The older you are, the more momentum your beliefs have. This means that more unresolved inner-issues may arise for you if you're starting new endeavors, later in life. As of now, you live the life you do because you believe it to be true for you. By creating a new vision, you are challenging your current truth by questioning it. This alone will create mental and emotional turbulence. However, it’s worth the inner-conflict because without vision, you lose focus. Without focus, you become reactive according to your current beliefs. If you are reactive, you will go through life with tunnel vision. You will only notice what you believe to be true and believe to be your reality, which will keep you where you always were.

There was an experiment done in a marketplace by three men wanting to see how long it would take someone to notice a wallet in the center of the commons area. They set up temporary video cameras so they can sit in a cafe to watch the monitors. Each time they placed the wallet down they couldn't get inside the cafe before someone picked it up to see if they could find the owner. After three attempts, they spray-painted a red circle in the middle of the commons area that was about two feet in diameter. In the middle of the circle, they placed the wallet. It took about seventy minutes before someone picked up the wallet after it was placed inside the red circle.

I would like to reiterate that this is a marketplace. This is a place where people stroll around to check out the shops and have lunch. There are park benches and fountains to hang out around and enjoy the day. This is not a place where people are in a hurry. This is a place where people are taking everything in slowly while enjoying their surroundings.

Most of the people who walked by the wallet did look down or glance at it but didn't lose their pace, as if they were looking at a candy wrapper on the floor. Others didn't even look down. Some people walked on the wallet as if it wasn't there. Some people would stop and look at it with a puzzled look on their face, but didn’t pick up the wallet. These people probably looked at it, and to some degree were intimidated because they thought it was a trap of some kind. They probably sensed they were being watched and decided to get away from the wallet quickly.

The difference between the people who looked down, while displaying some form of processing, and everyone else is everyone else didn't have it brought to their attention by their brain. A subconscious opinion will always follow our brain's observations before it is brought to our conscious awareness. In the case of the wallet, these people’s observations were immediately followed by their subconscious mind anticipating the onset of an uncomfortable confrontation or imminent danger. Within that split second, their brain shut down the onset of consideration by deleting the observation before it entered their awareness.

In hypnotherapy, this is what is called a negative hallucination. It is when your mind actively erases a perception. The best way I can explain negative hypnosis, in simple terms, is there are networks of neurons in your brain that always communicate with each other. This communication is active in your brain without your knowledge, and before anything reaches your attention. These neurons are responsible for perceiving and translating the incoming input from the outside world. If everything is in check, the information will be transferred to the conscious mind.

The point I’m getting at is, just because you don't see it, hear it, smell it, taste it, or feel it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. What you tune into you become a part of, and it becomes a part of you. This is what is called your resonance. Resonance, in relation to us, is similar to frequency and its relation to a classic radio or TV that uses an antenna for reception. Just because I'm watching or listening to one station doesn't mean the other stations aren’t broadcasting a program. It is up to me to change the frequency response of either device if I don't like where I'm at. Point being, you are exposed to what you resonate with while everything else seems invisible to you. That said, you are a lot closer to your desires than you think.

~Nicholas D’Arezzo~

Thanks alex! Glad I can put a smile on your face!

As promised to myself, I have listened to the book for the third time. A great way to start the day!

I'm going to get his awareness book tonight and start tomorrow. It's a 2 hour listen.

I'll let you know about it when I'm done.

BTW...ever since I have been doing his pre-sleep exercise I have been dreaming of going to impoverished, ruined wastelands filled with structures beyond repair, then pulling out my tools and rebuilding them. Needless to say, my dreams have been INTENSE!
