Welcome. One of the things that we don’t often talk about as an Absolute fact of your existence is .. change, and yet in the ebb and flow of energy that appears as the world around you, change is the only constant. Some of you try very hard at times to find and maintain a world of stability, to keep things rolling along in an OK state. But stuff happens. Some of that stuff is more to your liking than other stuff, and so your desires get stimulated. You want to create more joyful experiences, and less not-so-joyful experiences, and that is the desire that brings us all together in these intersections.

Who you are, the power you have, and how you exercise that power, is of course at its essence, a very simple story. And yet, immersed and engrossed as you are in your space/time world, as we get exuberantly into the detail of the questions you bring to us, it often takes us many words, and many minutes, or hours, or days, to explore with you the ways in which you can change your world and your life. And so here we are at it once again, in your space/time terminology, in week fifteen of our new series of discussions, and this week we want to go back over some of our best tips and Law Of Attraction techniques.

Our goal here is to expand your understanding of the way your thoughts control your world, so that as you become more aware of those thoughts, you become more expert at creating a world around you that lines up with what you want. So let’s first understand the mechanics of this, and then we’ll revisit some of your popular processes and see what’s actually going on when you practice these techniques. And by “you” here, we’re talking about the thinking conscious-you that has made, and continues to make, ALL the decisions.
As always, we’ll start by talking fundamentally about what’s going on here. Here are some different ways of describing it. Bringing more joy into your life is a process of following your heart and getting into alignment with your now-desires. Changing your life means making a new choice and lining up with it (Abraham words). Changing your life means telling a New Story in place of that old Story you wrote about how everything works. Changing your life means changing your blueprint – that complex map of expectations which sits back there in what we loosely call the subconscious-you. Changing your life means reprogramming your autopilot and implanting some new rules about the way things work.

We have all these various ways of describing it – your blueprint, your tapestry of expectations, your Story, your autopilot mind, and we say you can think of it as subconscious-you – but here’s what’s important about it. Five things.
1. You alone made choices and created it. It’s not a committee decision. It’s not a co-creation.
2. You can always know consciously what’s in it – just go within and be honest with yourself.
3. There’s nothing in it that’s unchangeable.
4. You alone can change it. Once again, it’s not a committee decision.
5. It alone creates Your World, second by second. What you don’t “know”, doesn’t exist,

Next we’re going to repeat here what we often repeat about the Law Of Attraction and we want you to hear these words and really think about your reaction to them.
“You can have, be or do anything. There is nothing you cannot change.”
“Creating a galaxy is as simple as creating a hot meal.”
We’ve used these words many times before, but what was your reaction this time? You might sort of believe it but internally water it down to something like – being positive is a generally good idea – and in that case you’re missing the point.
Or you might believe it theoretically but you harbor doubts about your ability to personally change things. If this is you, then stick with us here and let’s see if together we can shift some of that for you.

You chose at a very fundamental level the very shape of you, your consciousness – mostly perhaps focused down into one thought at a time. You chose how that conscious-you interacts with what we loosely call your subconscious, but let’s come back to that in more detail shortly. You chose the illusion of physicalness with a preferred backstory (what you call your ”past”) – perhaps being born a human on a certain day and time of certain parents in a certain country on a 4 billion year-old earth rotating around a sun in a 13 billion year-old galaxy among many galaxies. You chose your non-physical world – perhaps with other entities – some similar to you and some like us. You chose and are choosing and will choose. Choice is an absolute and fundamental part of what you do.

Now let’s look at that autopilot you’ve chosen, the subconscious-you, where you (just you and nobody else) have stored the beliefs and expectations that define everything about you and the context around you. Changing your subconscious is an inherent part of creating something new. In this subconscious resides all the choices about the physical you, your world and that so-called “past” of yours that seem so important in determining who and where you are, the choices about how you do things, how you connect things and how you react to different things. So let’s look at one version of that “past” as one possible explanation of the way you programmed that autopilot.

As a baby learning to walk, you tried a few things a few thousand times and learned to balance on two legs. You tried a few steps a few hundred times and eventually you learned to walk. You stored all that away and unless you consciously choose to intervene for some reason, like playing hopscotch for example, you never think about where to place your feet again. You taught your subconscious to handle it, and it does. Similarly, you learned to talk. by which we mean you consciously learned and then taught your subconscious how to do it. Now when you speak, you choose a block of thought and your autopilot chooses the words and speaks them. And by the way, sometimes as you react, your autopilot also chooses the thought.

You taught it how Your World is. When you work up this morning, there it was – the bed, the walls, the floor, time and gravity. It was there without conscious thought, without energy, focus or attention, because you knew it would be. Your subconscious provided the design and the Law Of Attraction provided the context – the illusion you call the world.

Now consider going on a roller coaster ride. If you thought there was any real danger, you wouldn’t go on it, but your logical conscious mind says – this is safe. And yet when you reach the apex and dive into what seems like freefall, your subconscious is screaming “Danger” at you. Without that, once again you wouldn’t go on it, because there would be no thrill. Think about that. You know it’s a lie, and in this case the fun comes from challenging that lie. What would happen do you think if you were forced to ride it for an hour every day? You would be training your autopilot that there is no danger here. Once that habit of thought takes over, the ride becomes boring.

Now consider climbing a hill with a slope on one side and a cliff on the other. Your autopilot handles climbing up the slope. It knows what to do and it sees no problem. Then say you stand at the top of the cliff and you recall our words that you can do anything. You can fly. It’s as simple to successfully fly off the cliff as it is to go down the way you came up, and it could be a lot more fun. Your autopilot is of course saying “Danger!”. What is your conscious mind saying? Well if you haven’t yet reached the point of certainty about flying, it’s probably saying “Not at this time”, and we would agree with that. We are not proponents of .. “jump and the parachute will appear”.

How then do you teach your subconscious a new habit of thought when you can’t safely practice the new way of doing things? And now we have arrived at the point of all of this. Since it’s all an illusion anyway, can you see that it’s your thoughts that created that current set of habits you’ve stored back there. New thoughts can create new habits. An “imagined” experience, without reservation, with eager anticipation, is every bit as powerful as a so-called “real” experience in planting new ideas about what’s possible. As with the roller coaster, it may take a few repetitions to overwrite the old story.

What we are on about here is retraining that immensely powerful subconscious that makes most of your decisions and handles most of your physical actions, to be in alignment with where you want it to be. As with the roller coaster, it has no independent ability to really decide what is logical and sensible. When it is screaming “Danger”, it is not by definition signaling danger. It is simply reacting in the way that you have previously taught it to react. It may FEEL like it is telling you of danger, but it cannot do that. Recognize here and now and take a stand with this subconscious of yours. It’s just the old program that you put there. So now let’s get to the reprogramming.

What are the key ingredients here?
 Releasing – mentally loosening your grip on that fake “reality” – letting the Old Story go and letting your New Story be your True Story
 Awareness Of Your Feelings – developing an ever-present sense of how you feel.
 Willingness – choosing to intervene as you start heading downhill, choosing to give this new vision the focus it deserves.
 Awareness Of Who You Are – maintaining perspective, always seeing the view from the stands even as you play on the field.
 Practicing – choosing processes that help. Adapting them. Using them.

Any process that gets you away from business-as-usual day-to-day month-month thinking can help. We’ll be going into these in more detail in our longer discussion, but in summary, here are our favorites:
► “Letting Go” – the five-step process that many of our community have come to value.
► Meditation – which comes in many shapes. Any and all of them are useful.
► Appreciation Rampages – simply the quickest way to focus thought on happy things.
► Channeling – something all of you can do. A great tool.
► Reinventing your “past” – choosing a new version that feels good and practicing it into “reality”.
► Finding like minds. Choosing company (creating a world) that supports the changing you.

We look forward to our discussion.
