When you understand the redemptive function of imagination, you hold in your hands the key to the solution of all your problems.
You’re a teacher and one of the kids in class WON’T stop tapping his hands and drumming on the desk. He is constantly in trouble, he won’t stop and it disrupts the class. He ruins everybody’s class. He gets sent to the principal’s office again and again, nothing helps. He grows up to be angry, rebellious and constantly battling the world.
You’re a teacher, and one of the kids won’t stop tapping his hands on the desk, class after class, tap tap tap, constantly drumming on the desk. You buy him a drum set, and tell him that he is not a problem, that he has a GIFT! He doesnät have a behavior problem but he is a DRUMMER. Kid grows up to become a world famous drummer. True story.
THIS is how our self concept is formed, one childhood moment at a time.
EVERYONE is subject to being shaped and formed throughout childhood, for good or bad. We come into the world with a mission to overcome, and harmonize further, to finetune our understanding of our divine nature, and this might sound strange to you, but we do.
We are consciousness before we are born into this costume called a body, and return to consciousness after. This is not something that takes place in time or space, we don’t have the ability to see WHAT time-space is, when we put on these eyes that blind us.
This is why a conscious creator has to MAKE A DECISION to see with the eyes of God. Divine perception.
Because of this, when we are born we have vastly different circumstances, and your circumstances are pressingly real and important to you, but not to everyone else. When we say, circumstances don’t matter, that means that your mission here, should you choose to accept it, is to OVERCOME. It doesn’t mean that your circumstances don’t FEEL important to you, that’s the whole crux of the matter, To YOU, the circumstances do in fact matter. The more you believe in them, the more they solidify, and turn to matter. No Matter what it is, no matter AT ALL, the more you think it matters, the more it is solidly seeming matter. Real. Unchangeable. The very day that you realize that you are here ONLY to overcome these difficulties, you are ONLY here to recognize oneness, and harmonize with the divine, that is the day that the solidity of your circumstances dissolve, and a new reality can begin to form.
The child who grew up in a harsh and dangerous family, who’s love and affection is never recognized, who is treated with alternating violence, abuse, and neglect, perhaps grows up with cPTSD, or maybe even a BPD diagnosis. This person spends their life desperately looking for love in every person who resembles the abusive parents. Every love story ends the same, and at the break up they are suicidal. Heartbroken again, believing that to feel loved and whole love has to come from only THAT person.
The same child grows up in the most harmonious loving home, where she is seen, heard, and validated on a regular basis, her love is seen and received with joy. The mirror that parents provide shows her only goodness. This person grows up to hit the relationship jackpot right away, she is wired to see love in herself, and the one who is a match to her love, is a man who is generous with his emotional availability, he is intimate on a fundamental soul to soul level, and she sees this with eyes of comfort, whereas the other child would see emotional intimacy with eyes of suspicion and fear.
You do NOT have to examine every corner of your life, or know what events caused you to become you, you just have to know that the formation of your beliefs either serve you or hinder you.
It can certainly seem that you MUST know what caused the limiting beliefs, but as I will explain, this is just part of that state. It is a limiting belief in and of itself. You don’t have to know every detail of the cause anymore than an emergency doctor has to know the exact cause of your broken leg in order to put a cast on it. But similarly, you do have to cocoon the limiting belief and the old state that it arises out of in a mental cast, and stop walking on it. Don’t touch those limiting beliefs again, unless you want to resurrect that old pain.
If you are constantly running into the same obstacle, the world is against you or you believe that you are a hoodlum, the cause of problems everywhere you go, or if you believe that every partner that you have ever been with has left you because there is something wrong with you, even though there seemed to be love, then you have not YET learned how to overcome your circumstances, you have not YET mastered leaving the old state behind. So. You still try and try and try to manifest FROM the broken state. Living FROM the end means that you take off the comforts of that old state, and venture into the new state with absolute fearlessness. YES, people who are trapped here are VERY attached to the old state believing THAT crazy intense and broken love to be more, stronger, more passionate etcetera. Or whatever false belief that gives you comfort and dopamine hits. No. This IS the false belief.
The love from the new and wholesome state is even better, but since your dopamine hit has been hardwired into you during childhood and adolescence, you are addicted to your particular method of getting those dopamine hits. THAT is all that YOUR reaction to circumstances is. An ADDICTION. You made it into your very identity. It is not your identity because you can take that old identity OFF, put it down, never pick it up again, and walk forward in life, a success. A world renowned drummer. A loved and needed wife or husband whose spouse would rather amputate a limb than LOSE YOU. Daring to leave your old state behind is what scares you the most, but it is EXACTLY what gives you the keys to your kingdom. The kingdom of EXACTLY what you want.
YES your circumstances MATTER to you. And yes you have to overcome them. You are here by your own choice, and by your own beliefs, once you reach adulthood, you can change your circumstances by changing your beliefs. If you examined your thoughts daily for just one week, you would see that all of your thoughts arise from one state or another. You might be in a state of anxiety one day, and write down your thoughts, then a few days later you might be at ease completely going with the flow and enjoying life, if you then look back on what you wrote a few days earlier while in a state of anxiety you would think “How silly I was”. Your state brings along all the limiting beliefs, and all the negative thoughts. This then becomes the soil in which you plant your seeds, and this is poisoned soil.
Our first order of business should always be to know that your state gives rise to your limiting beliefs, AND your negative thoughts.
The second order of business is to always KNOW that even though the state seems REAL, you are still the only thing that is keeping THAT state alive. Without your attention, the whole state dies, and you are free.
The THIRD order of business is to know that YOU and YOU alone blows life into the state, and NO TEACHER, priest, LOA coach, NO CHANNELER, no psychic, no tarot reader, no destiny, no karma, no fate, no psychologist, NO OUTSIDE GOD, literally nobody but YOU, have the power to change your state. YOU.
(Remember that anyone who believes themselves to be special enough to be a spiritual leader for anyone else has massive ego problems, and don’t get a fake guru, don’t get into a cult like following based on law of attraction OR anyone other cult for that matter. You are the one who controls and directs your state.) A woman recently asked a question about changing a specific person, and said that “Bashar” had said that it is impossible in one of his “channeled” lectures. I will repeat, Nobody, including Bashar, is the master of YOUR state.
When people say “You can not manifest” they are talking about themselves. They can not. From the state that THEY are in, they see only their limiting beliefs. Let me assure you that GOD can do anything. Neville Goddard says:
“You become according to your resigned will, and your resigned will is your concept of yourself and all that you consent to and accept as true.”
If God wants to create a miracle, he will create a miracle. If he wants to send an angel he will send an angel, if he wants to raise a man from the dead, he will raise a man from the dead.
Yes, YOU, in your state of limiting beliefs can not. But you CAN change state. What can you do from your new state? Only you can tel,l once you have given life to that state. Save your This or that can’t be done for yourself, and let everyone who is changing their life go about their trailblazing business. “Man who says it cannot be done should not interrupt man doing it”
“You, assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled and continuing therein, take upon yourself the results of that state; not assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled, you are ever free of the results.”
Change your state and THEN talk about what is possible from that state.
Become the world’s most renowned drummer, and THEN talk about what is possible. Become the person who is a wife or a husband, and THEN talk about how your spouse would never leave you. Bashar does NOT hold the keys to your kingdom, only YOU DO. Become the STATE first, and you will feel a whole universe of possibilities open up for you, THEN you will know what is possible. It does not matter what it is that you desire, if you desire it, this is your path forward. The new state will give rise to yet other desires, desires that you currently have not even smelled the scent of yet. Let life surprise you by learning how to enter the state first, and follow its magical path of expansion. Neville goddard says:
“Since your life is determined by your assumptions, you are forced to recognize the fact that you are either a slave to your assumptions or their master.
To become the master of your assumptions is the key to undreamed of freedom and happiness.
You can attain this mastery by deliberate conscious control of your imagination.
You determine your assumptions in this way: Form a mental image, a picture of the state desired, of the person you want to be. Concentrate your attention upon the feeling that you are already that person.
First, visualize the picture in your consciousness. Then feel yourself to be in that state as though it actually formed your surrounding world.
By your imagination that which was a mere mental image is changed into a seemingly solid reality.
The great secret is a controlled imagination and a well sustained attention firmly and repeatedly focused on the object to be accomplished.
It cannot be emphasized too much that, by creating an ideal within your mental sphere, by assuming that you are already that ideal, you identify yourself with it and thereby transform yourself into its image, thinking from the ideal instead of thinking of the ideal.
Every state is already there as “mere possibilities” as long as we think of them, but as overpoweringly real when we think from them.”
The steps of manifesting are the same as the steps in life:
- Have a desire
Rinse and repeat.
