Welcome back to our lead-up to the 4-Week Challenge. Over these last few weeks, we’ve been collaborating with our channels here and cooking up this program that we’ll be launching on November 1. It will be four weeks of living differently, and you’ll be engaging with us as we focus on one particular thing that you want to achieve. This will be nuts and bolts. And yes of course we’ll still be coming from a place of knowing – knowing the absolute truth of who you are and why you’re here, and knowing how you create your worlds – because when you come from that place, you can step in any direction you want to go. But for this month, our particular focus together will be on one end-result.
This morning, this one came across this caption:
Logic can get you from A to B,
Imagination can get you ANYWHERE.
We say amen. Imagination is the key to everything. Imagination is thought, and to those of you who say you’re not good at imagining, we would say .. Really? Are you good at worrying? (And we don’t know one of you who would say they never worry. Worry seems to be a natural talent you all have.) So what are you doing when you’re worrying? You’re imagining a particular negative outcome, which does not yet exist, and feeling bad about it.
Can you see that when you say you’re not good at imagining, what you’re really saying is that you’ve got into the habit of imagining only what seems to be inevitable or probable, based on that so-called past of yours. You’re got yourself into the rut of facing so-called “reality”. Well phooey to that. You’re ALL good at imagining, and this week we’d like to spend some time getting you off the A to B track, and onto the ANYWHERE track. We’re going to talk today about freeing your imagination because we want to do some damage to the idea that your past is a fixture. And we’re going to take a cue from our session with Rachel last night and give you two more techniques for your tool-bag. Let’s start here.
Only the present is real. Therefore only the present can create the present. The past has absolutely no power to create in your now-world – except to the extent that you choose to believe that it does. Creation only occurs in the NOW. The present is the now-result of what you now-believe to be most true for you. If you continue to practice the thought that your present circumstances are defined by your past, then you are limiting your ability to relax into an ongoing and evert-present awareness of the power that you have. The truth is that you are not even constrained by continuity and the march of time. Even as a movie may switch suddenly from one scene to another, so you may switch if you choose. It’s up to you.
This week this one was watching a PBS NOVA television program on the origins of man. It was state-of-the-art science derived from fossil records and DNA analysis. It described how humans evolved in Africa, and it charted the complex patterns of migration that ended up with humans all over the world. And as he was watching this, he was thinking how seductive it is to get immersed in that Story with all its colorful detail, and how easy it is to forget who’s creating all of this and drop into, once again, the habit of accepting the reality of an external physical space/time realm. And when we say “accepting”, we mean believing in. And when we say you “drop into, once again”, we mean, once again, you’re practicing those old reality beliefs.
At a recent dinner party, this one was discussing with his friend Jeff, the concept of reality being a moment by moment creation, and the past being therefore a work of fiction. Jeff responded with .. “But I can go down the street to the anthropology museum and see the fossils”. Well of course if you start from the belief that the world is out there and ongoing, then that trip to the museum will reinforce that belief. By Law Of Attraction, everything you encounter can always be seen as in line with, and therefore reinforcing, your chosen beliefs. Our response to Jeff was .. “But of course. What you create, moment by moment, will always be what you expect, but that doesn’t mean you’re not creating it on the fly”.
So let us ask you a question. Where is this past of yours? Can you show it to us? And of course you cannot. You can only describe what you believe it was in some now non-existent moment. If you pick up a fossil, you are in your present. You can tell a Story in that “present” about how and when that animal roamed the earth and how that fossil came to be in that museum, but it is only an idea about, a thought about, something that does not exist. The past only ever exists as the Story you choose to tell about it, and then you practice that Story, and you practice that Story, and you practice that Story, until you can no longer see yourself as separate from it. Consciously and subconsciously you have lined up with it. It defines you.
And in that Story are many things that are glorious. It is the world you have slipped into in all its magnificent detail. But .. there are also things unwanted – belief choices you made that no longer serve you, belief-choices that may never have served you. Here’s an example from Abraham this week: The hypocrisy around the subject of sexuality is huge. Early on, there were others who were a lot more interested in you satisfying what made them feel good than in satisfying what made you feel good. There were so many things that you felt inclined to go this way, that you were forced to go that way, that at an early age, you made a conscious decision that if it felt good, it was wrong. And if it felt wrong, it was probably right.
And besides the very obvious and clear example of sexuality, there are of course those things you should or should not eat, things you should or should not do, people you should or should not mix with, and so on. So .. can you see that what’s in your Story doesn’t matter. You can change it. In truth, your past is just as variable as your future. It’s simply a matter of what you choose to believe and practice believing. So let’s see if we can shake you loose from some of that and help you move more into an ongoing awareness or who you are. Here’s some techniques we’ve constructed from some suggestions from our friend Bentinho. Take a moment here and try these on for size.
Let’s call this the “No-Past” Process.
1. Just recognize, acknowledge to yourself for a minute here, that you’re not a human being. You’re a timeless consciousness making up a Story about being a human being, a Story picked up in that so-called past, recorded as so-called memories in the physical brain that ONLY exists as an artifact in this linear lifetime. Don’t confuse yourself with the Story. It’s just the stage you created to have these experiences. Think about who you are without that Story.
2. Now imagine yourself not being able to remember your past, and coming into this planetary sphere as if with a flash of lighting. BOOM. You just appear here with love-light-presence recognition strong in your awareness from Spirit-Realm. And as you look around without ANY habits or ideas picked up from this world, what do you see? HOW do you interact? How do you feel? What do you do?
Good. Now let’s try a variation on that and let’s call it “Today Is It”.
1. Thinks back to when you woke up this morning – when you began the moment by moment creation of your world of today. Now think of today as being the whole of your life. It begins with you “waking up”. It’s going to end when you go back to sleep. Today is it. Today is all there is.
2. Of course this life of yours has a backstory. So think about that backstory you’ve chosen to preface this adventure of yours. It’s a whole set of assumptions about this world and about you.
3. And now here you are, and away you go. Notice how you feel about this world of yours. What’s important? What are your priorities for your life? Where do you want to go? What do you want to do?
4. Finally, acknowledge to yourself that this way of thinking is perfectly valid – just as valid as thinking of yourself as having a history. What does this tell you about you? What does this teach you about NOW.
Good – so there’s a couple of extra processes you can potentially build into your daily routine for the 4-week challenge. Remember:
1. They’re all guides to imagining – imagining new things about your and your worlds, because imagination is the creative thought that leads you to change, and
2. Although we describe them as discrete tools and specify the sequence, what you’ll find is that as you make them your own, you can drop into them, in any place. You can reorder them. You can mix and match them. You can drop into the mix, some of those top 10 truths we started with – those ten truths to remember.
3. In short, as you use them, they just become part of the fabric of who you are.
From our friends Abraham today: All the resources you will ever want or need are at your fingertips. All you have to do is identify what you want to do with it, and then practice the feeling-place of what it will feel like when that happens. There is nothing you cannot be or do or have. You are blessed Beings; you have come forth into this physical environment to create. There is nothing holding you back, other than your own contradictory thought (and your emotion tells you [when] you’re doing that). Life is supposed to be fun – it’s supposed to feel good! You are powerful Creators and right on schedule. Savor more; fix less. Laugh more; cry less. Anticipate positively more; anticipate negatively less. Nothing is more important than that you feel good. Just practice that and watch what happens.
So we’re really looking forward to some breakthroughs for you. We’re starting soon, and we encourage you to get creative about how you’re going to take every advantage of this. Remember:
1. Pick one thing you want to change, not something too way out, but something in one area of your life you’d like to change. Then tell us about it. It doesn’t have to be in detail, that’s up to you, but it has to be clear to you.
2. Commit to an action plan, and of course we don’t mean action in a material sense, we mean action in the thinking sense. From the processes we suggest, or other processes, commit to a daily process for the four weeks. Then tell us about it.
3. We encourage you to come to as many of our three calls a week as you can and check in on progress. Tell us what’s working and what’s not working, and together we’ll find the absolute best way for you to step into a new version of you and your world.
And then, well, the better it gets the better it gets. Let’s have some fun. Let’s have an adventure together. Let’s dance.
