Meditation 3: Drawing in Abundance

You will be taken to a sacred space where you will be receiving gifts from your guides. These gifts can be energy, guidance, items, emotions, healing and so much more. The first time through, try not to go in with any specific intentions of what you wish to see. When you use this meditation regularly, you can make your intentions prior to listening if you wish to manifest something specific. However, when you keep a blank slate prior to the meditation, it allows your subconscious to bring you what is most needed for you in that instance (even if it is not what you think it is).

Abundance VaultRemember, you will be feeling the energy of the meditation for 4-5 days, so pay attention to what shows up in your dreams, and/or what synchronicities are being brought to you as evidence of what you are drawing into your life.

In the comments below, please write about what you notice during and following the 4-5 days after Meditation 3. Even if what you see or sense something you think of as trivial or unrelated, write it down. You can notice faces, symbols, words, body sensations, colors, smells, sounds, emotions and even other evidence not listed here.

Be sure to share this page with friends to enhance your discussion. Sometimes it helps to have someone you know well weigh in on what you saw.

Why Would You Order Dinner You Don’t Want?

Writing a book was something I had always wanted to do. However, the process felt so daunting and I really didn’t know where to begin. Then one day, I just started writing, and before I knew it, I had completed my first book in a little over a month!

The book, Creating Your Life Path: One Dream at a Time, began as a way to answer all of those questions about how to uncover your life purpose and bring it into fruition in your life today. It is a Self-Help book that is designed for anyone who wants to re-awaken their passion, and walk the path of living their life purpose.

My favorite section of the book would have to be the part where I explain the process of bringing something to fruition, by equating it with going out to dinner. We all have a tendency to make things so complex in our own life; this explanation provides a simple way to connect with the manifestation process. Here is an excerpt:

“Now that you have dreamed your dream, it is time to start creating! In order to create tangible steps for your life path to unfold, you will need to take your dreams through the manifestation process. So, how does the manifestation process work? There is a great deal of information out there on this subject and it sometimes can be very confusing, and even contradictory. Let’s break this process down to its simplest components, by thinking about it much like ordering your dinner from a restaurant.

Step 1: Decide on your Intentions

If you are in the mood for Italian food, but you decide to eat at a Mexican restaurant, then you cannot order the meal you really want. You should never settle for less than what you desire.”

In the book, I also describe in further detail the Spirit Mailbox I recently blogged about. By the time you’re done reading the book, you will not only be able to uncover your life purpose and passion, but also be able to use this simple formula to assist in the creation of your life path. That way, you won’t end up with a meal that you are not hungry for!

Wants versus Needs

Do you really understand the difference between the wants and needs in your life? When you can learn to distinguish your wants from your needs, it allows you to discover a succinct direction for anything you wish to draw into your life. Here are a few simple pointers:

Your needs are the things that are required for any chosen purpose. For example if you run a business, you need an office with a certain amount of space, equipment, signage and so forth. Needs are just the basic descriptions of what is required. However, when you look at the wants related to running a business, you might want more space than is necessary, because you want to have room for growth. You may want a specific layout, or location. Those attributes of your office are not necessary for running your business now. They may help you, but they are not required for you to perform you work duties in the present moment.

When you are working with a manifestation practice, it is essential to distinguish your wants from your needs. If you do not understand the difference, you actually begin to create confusion about what you can create in your life. Many times when you do not differentiate these qualities, it can be easy to think that your wants are the same as your needs. This is because the Ego uses your wants to keep you from clearly seeing what your needs are.

The Ego’s tactics can show up by feeling as if you do not like something because of an attribute that is changeable; as in, “I will not buy that house because it has a red wall.” But, that red wall is not detracting from anything you need, and whatever color you want it to be, can be painted over the red. This may be a simple example, but it is exactly how the Ego uses your wants to distract you from seeing what your actual needs are.

To find out if this distraction tactic of the Ego is taking place in your own life, choose a manifestation goal you have. Perhaps is it a new job, relationship, money, car, or anything else. Then take out a piece of paper and write down two columns, one is wants and one is needs. Looking at manifesting a new car, you might want it to be a certain color, have a GPS, and 10 cup holders. None of those qualities are necessary for the car to operate and therefore are listed under Wants. Then you shift your focus to the needs; the car needs to be reliable, it needs to be comfortable for you to drive in, it needs to be safe for you and your family, it needs X amount of seats, it needs X amount of storage. Those are the Needs necessary for you to transport yourself, your family and any items you normally would take by car. Needs come from a fulfilling a purpose, whereas wants describe a quality that is preferred, but not necessarily required.

The more you practice this, the more you will be able to discern your wants from your needs. Then, once you have your needs determined, it gives you greater focus to bring your goals and dreams into reality.
