Welcome To The April 2006 Edition Of The "Enlightened Journey" E-Zine

I hope that you have had an incredible month since our last contact.
I am extremely excited about releasing this months edition of "Enlightened Journey" and hope that you find it to be of great benefit and value to you.
First, I would like to aplogize that this edition is a little late in coming out. Between and extremely busy and eventful month and a few technical glitches with my mail out software, I wasn't able to send it out as planned. I will try to be more timely in the future.
This months edition is going to be less about WHY things happen as they do and will get much more into the HOW to apply specific, simple, yet powerful life changing steps that will begin to produce the results that you desire to experience in your day to day life. We will begin to delve into the importance of your emotions in relation to creating the desired results in your own life and discover how to begin changing those emotions that may be counter productive to producing the results that you most desire to experience.
But first, have you taken the time to do the action steps from the March edition? If not, I would encourage you to do so. Unlike many other e-zines, "Enlightened Journey is designed as a step by step plan that will enlighten, educate, enable, and empower you to begin producing life results that you may have previously considered to be far fetched or in some cases impossible.
It is very important that you are developing the understanding as we progress through the steps in order for them to provide you with the biggest breakthroughs as well as assisting you in establishing the necessary belief of how it is that these things come about, which as a result will allow you to begin producing the kind of results that you truly desire and deserve to experience. Put another way, each edition of "Enlightened Journey is designed as a "stepping stone" that will bring you one step closer to understanding, believing, and then putting into action the steps that you need to bring you to the final destination of fulfilling your deepest desires, if you choose to do so.
As I have mentioned in previous issues and will continue to mention because it is SO IMPORTANT and crucial to your future results, regardless of how powerful, inspirational, or correct ANY knowledge may be, it is only knowledge and ABSOLUTELY USELESS unless you take what is gained from it and put it into focused and consistent action.
I know because I was once one of those people who at one point in my life, although I studied and absorbed all that I possibly could, initially didn‘t take the steps that were necessary to apply the principles that I had discovered which would allow me to realize my desires.
It is also extremely important NOT to believe what is written here just because I say it is so, but to take the time necessary to discover for yourself if what is being shared is true. If you make a sincere effort to do so, you’ll find that the steps as well as the principles covered here are the precise ingredients that will allow you to begin producing seemingly magical results in your own life.
For years I absorbed like a sponge literally every book I could get my hands on. I attended countless seminars, listened to more tapes and CDs than I can count, and tried almost every form of life enhancement products hoping that one day my life would change and that I might regain some of the financial satisfaction that I once enjoyed and lost and would once again be able to provide for my family the lifestyle that they deserve and that was so important for me to do.
Although I had attained a modest level of financial success at a fairly young age, I found myself unfulfilled in other important life areas. The physical effort and time that it took to reach those financial goals left me drained of energy, stressed, and unable to effectively find an extremely imortant aspect of TRUE success, a sense of "Harmony."
Many of the programs that I had listened to and seminars that I attended in my early growth years were based on external success and as I discovered years later could only produce temporary results. By placing focus on external things and utilizing external means to produce them is what I would later discover and come to know as producing effects with effects.
This form of temporary gain will always be short lived and is contrary to even the most fundamental of scientific principles as well as what has been taught in spiritual circles for thousands of years without the "Inner Harmony" that is necessary to sustain that physical gain long term.
As an example many have come to believe due to previous false teaching, as I had, that in order to make money you must "work hard." That money didn’t come easy. This widely held, falsely established traditional belief, as common and widespread as it is, couldn’t be further from the real truth. Physical work is an external effect, The money that is derived from this work also is an external effect. There are so many in our world today that have adopted this "You must work hard" belief as truth, which is precisely the reason that so many feel forced to and do, work in occupations that they dislike for far more hours than they desire, and as a result experience extreme stress, anxiety, fatigue and a host of other counter-productive and dis-ease causing symptoms. By discovering the importance of and learning to align your “inner self” first, you will soon discover that the external things that you desire, the type of work that you enjoy doing, and the circumstances that you desire to experience just seem to begin happening, and come to you as an "inner knowing" when they are presented, without strenuous effort on your part.
The latter result, is known as the correct use of putting the Law Of Attraction in action. Depending on your type of faith or religious affilliation, you may also refer to this as Sowing and Reaping, Karma, etc. To others the term Cause and Effect may ring more true. Regardless of what you call it, each is exactly the same and produces precisely the same results based on the same exact, precise, and unwavering principles that were established at the beginning of time.
Once you have discovered, absorbed, and begin to exercise this crucial fact you will have discovered "The Secret" to what many refer to as effortless living. The things that you most desire will, through seemingly "coincidental" means or in some cases seemingly "magical" means, begin showing up in your life. You quite literally "align yourself" with receiving all that the universe has to offer and all that you were intended to receive. Put another way, you learn to "Allow" whatever it may be to be delivered to you.
Now don’t get me wrong and run out and quit your job today or start writing checks for things that you don’t currently have money in the bank to cover. This is something that needs to be learned and developed and as you begin to see progress, and as your belief muscle begins strengthening and you begin to see and experience personally, the power that this truth holds, you will begin, not by force or through trying to make things happen, but through "Allowing", producing and experiencing events, conditions, and circumstances that you may have previously perceived as miraculous results.
I am not implying that you can sit in a room meditating, and hoping that all that you desire will just magically come to you. This is "wishful thinking." What I am saying is that once you do the necessary internal work and develop the "inner harmony" to receive your desires, that the people, circumstances, ideas, job that you love, money, or whatever your desire may be, will begin to be presented to you in "seemingly" magical or coincidental ways. Action is and always will be necessary as they are presented but the action necessary will be enjoyable to you.
But first you must unlearn or overwrite those false teachings and beliefs that you have absorbed and which have held you back to this point which are precisely the reason that you have not to this date been enabled to attract to you those events, conditions, and circumstances that you most desire to experience.
The time it takes for you to accomplish this can not be determined by me or anyone else. Each individual has unique situations and varying levels of established beliefs. The time it takes to discover the real truth concerning many of these areas is something that only you can determine. I or any other can only lead you to the water, we can’t make you drink it. I can introduce you to the principles and the "correct" actions to take but I can’t do them for you. You are going to have to do that for yourself. But when you do, and you develop the habit to "apply" that which you discover consistently, you will experience the most refreshing, fulfilling, and profound thirst buster that you have ever known. You will have discovered the Key to fulfillment, joy, and unimaginable inner peace that to this point has eluded you if you will only make the choice to apply what you discover.
This application process doesn't require you to work long hard hours at something that you dislike. It doesn't require that you do anything at all that you find displeasing to you in any way. In fact, exactly the opposite is true.
Just as I had discovered previously in my own life through trial and error, and after absorbing so much knowledge but failing to take action on those things that I had discovered, you too will have to take correct action if you truly desire to experience change.
For me it took quite some time to come to this realization. But one day, I don’t remember the exact date, it just clicked. It became crystal clear to me that regardless of how hard I had been trying, no matter how many books I read, regardless of how many CDs I listened to or seminars that I attended, and no matter how much I desired to manifest meaningful and lasting results in my life, it wasn’t going to happen until I took an active role in consistently and methodically APPLYING all that I had learned.
Although I had developed many of the “how’s and why’s”, the mechanics if you will of how the events and things in life happen as they do and had discovered many of the “proper steps” to take to produce those results, I wasn’t taking the consistent “action” and failing to “apply” those steps that were necessary to make the “inner changes” that I would later find are essential to creating lasting results.
Like the majority of the people in the world today, “I wanted it, and I wanted it NOW!”
I must admit initially that I was one of those who blazed through the latest program, tried it for a few days, and when it didn’t produce the results that I thought it should have in the timeframe that I figured that it should, would transfer that to the dust collecting storage area where so many previous programs that I had "tried" and previously found "didn't work" were stored, and I would immediately find myself ordering the next latest greatest “Newly discovered highly held secret” program that I hoped would take me to the next level. I actually repeated this process for many years before that one insightful day when what was REALLY happening finally clicked and I finally GOT IT.
On the lighter and positive side (which I now find humorous) of that (there ALWAYS is one) through the many programs that I did discover, I discovered which programs and teachers were genuine, sincere and effectively shared the "correct wisdom" that I was seeking and also came to quickly recognize those that appeared to be out to make a fast buck or were just totally misled as to the true principles that really do bring about fulfillment and prosperity.
Through this entire process I discovered that many of the programs that I had tried that went against my then currently held belief system at that time, were in fact the most powerful, simplest, and shortest path to reaching where it was that I wanted to go, and which had the biggest and most profound effect on my quality of life. What I had previously come to falsely believe is that in order for any process to be effective and produce results, that it must be complicated or take extreme effort to break through and begin realizing the results that I most desired to experience.
I would soon come to the realization that the simplest systems and techniques would provide the most powerful results. It was in fact as I would later discover, a combination of the falsely established beliefs that I held and the “trying so hard” to force things to happen and complicating things far beyond what was necessary which were the very things that were creating the “dis-harmony” and keeping me from realizing and experiencing the breakthroughs that I so desired to experience.
The very programs that I had previously failed to initiate or had rejected as "hocus pocus stuff" many years before, were the very programs that contained the answers that I was seeking!
Anyway, enough about me, and my experiences. I only share these things so that you might understand the importance of developing the habit of "applying" what you discover.
This E-zine is really about you and it’s sole purpose is to provide you with effective and true to life actions and principles that will, if you’ll allow them to, provide YOU with the real life results as well as empower you to begin producing those specific results that YOU most desire, and do so with the greatest of ease as well as lead you down the shortest path possible.
The point that I was headed toward and attempting to make before I got so long winded in my explanation is, first and foremost take a deep and open-minded look to determine if WHAT is being shared is real truth and once you are certain that it is "Consistently APPLY what you learn and your life will change in dramatic and powerful ways." Although some of what is shared may go against what you currently believe to be true, think about and examine your life results to this point and determine if your current beliefs and actions have provided the results in ALL life areas that you desire to experience. If not, then it is going to be necessary to change what you have been doing in order for you to experience different results. As the famous Albert Einstein so correctly quoted, "Insanity is defined as Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”
The steps that are included in each edition of Enlightened Journey each month will only consist of those that I have personally utilized, found to be the most powerful and effective, eliminating all the "Experience Everything You Have Ever Wanted Or Needed In Your Entire Life In 30 Minutes Guaranteed" nonsense programs. Don’t take what I am saying wrong. There are many INCREDIBLE programs that can and will deliver profound results very quickly, but the time it takes to begin realizing YOUR desired results depends totally on you.
I cannot with any accuracy and will not make any guarantees as to the time frame in which you will begin experiencing the desired changes for your own life. Not because I’m not certain that the principles that I share work. Not because I have any doubts as to how quickly they can provide real and lasting change in your life. But because and only because you have been provided the "Free Will" to choose how much or how little you will "correctly apply" the principles provided to you. In some cases breakthroughs are realized in a matter of hours. In some cases a few days. In other cases a few months. The length of time it takes is unimportant. What IS important is the fact that if you will persist in developing your self awareness and discover the truth concerning many of the falsely held previously established beliefs that you have allowed to be absorbed and stored, and take the prescribed steps to discover “inner harmony” you will look back at whatever timeframe has elapsed and realize that you have found the key to transforming your situations and circumstances regardless of how they may currently appear to you. Once you do finally “Get It” the life changes that you desire can and will manifest VERY QUICKLY, and in seemingly “magical” ways.
One major advantage that you have being a subscriber to Enlightened Journey that I didn’t have in my searching for heightened awareness, is that each of the life enhancement programs back at the Abundance-and-Happiness.com site have been personally and individually tried, tested, and proven to produce the life changing results that they promise, IF you will only develop the discipline to consistently APPLY the steps that they direct you to take. It’s not that they are hard to do. It’s not that they take a college or even a high school education to figure out. The ONLY thing that you must do is develop the discipline to consistently apply the new habits that will ensure that you UTILIZE and put into Action the wisdom that you gain.
The simplicity of creation, in this case the creation of your day to day outcomes, is explained through these programs by some of the wisest, finest, and most knowledgeable teachers on the planet and although they may be delivered in different styles and formats, at their core provide the exact same scientifically proven as well as spiritually based age old principles that will allow and empower you to achieve results far beyond what you may have previously conceived to be possible.
Just understand that regardless of what information that you absorb, once you have found it to be credible, you must apply the steps that you discover and make a personal commitment to yourself that will continue to do so until you begin seeing and experiencing the results you desire. If you can guarantee me that you will do that, then I will guarantee that you will experience seemingly miraculous breakthroughs, with little physical effort on your part.
Ok, with all that said, let’s get into the meat of today’s e-zine....

Overview Concerning Your Thoughts and Beliefs
Hopefully you’ve taken the time to explore the Universal Laws that I have referred to in previous issues and have familiarized yourself with how your thoughts and beliefs, are quite literally attracting and creating your current circumstances whatever they may be, and serve as the means of creating what you come to experience in your life.
For those of you who have attempted the "Non Thought" exercise, in the February edition, I’m sure you found that to be quite “enlightening” as well. As you become more and more consciously aware of the predominant thoughts that go through your mind, you will begin to discover a direct correlation between those thoughts that you think and the current events, conditions, and circumstances that you find yourself experiencing in your physical world. Once you have developed the awareness of WHAT those thoughts are, and make a conscious effort to change those which aren’t advancing you toward your desires, you can then begin refocusing them and begin to attract only those things that you most desire to experience.
In this edition of "Enlightened Journey" we will not only be touching on these two important areas with a little more depth but also bring into the picture the EMOTIONS (your communication device with the spiritual realm) that you experience due to those thoughts that you think and beliefs that you hold, as well as begin to develop a deeper understanding of the importance of learning to release those emotions that may be working against manifesting your desires.
Once this awareness is developed you will become empowered to begin replacing the counter productive emotions which are keeping you from experiencing your deepest desires, and actually attracting to you, more of what you DO NOT want, with emotions that will begin attracting those things that you DO most desire to experience.
First, let’s explore more deeply into what emotions are and how they have a direct impact in effecting your quality of life.
Emotions Act As Magnets : Intense Emotions Act As Super Magnets
Emotion is something that we all experience each and every minute of every day. What are emotions really and where do they come from? How is it that emotions can play a part in creating your physical reality?
At the conclusion of this edition you will have developed a heightened awareness of how the emotions that you experience play a major role in bringing about the day to day experiences that manifest in your life and act as the magnet that draws to you based on the vibratory output that your emotion emanates, which is continually attracting the events, conditions, and circumstances that you come to experience in your life.
As you have discovered through the Law of Vibration and Law of Attraction, EVERYTHING that exists in our world broken down into its most basic form consists of pure energy. It doesn’t matter what it is whether seen or unseen. Your thoughts are energy, the wind is energy, oxygen is energy, sound is energy, the chair you’re sitting on is energy, and yes your emotions are energy as well. The things that you can see and experience with your five physical senses of sight, smell, touch, hearing, and taste as well as those things that you can't are ALL, at their core, nothing but pure energy.
Through sophisticated scientific monitoring equipment we have been empowered to discover and develop the understanding that ALL energy vibrates at various frequencies, emits specific outputs, and attracts to it energies of a similar vibration or frequency. Through this understanding it is important to learn to "become conscious" of what signals you are sending through that energy which you are sending out which is resulting in the things that you come to see and experience in the physical world.
What Does That Have To Do With Emotions?
EVERYTHING! For example Fear emits a different frequency of energy than does Joy. Happiness emits a different frequency of energy than sadness. The old saying "laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone" is much more valid and true than many realize. Why? Because when you laugh, the energy that is broadcast is literally infectious and can and will result in those that are exposed to it to laugh or feel better also. By the same token sadness, depression, or crying also broadcasts a specific vibratory frequency which effects those that are in contact with it equally as much.
To expand on this concept, think of people that you know in your own life. Is there someone in your circle of influence that is always happy and bubbly? This type of person is pleasant to be around because they broadcast an energy that can and does make you feel better. Even if you may initially be feeling a little down, when you are exposed to their lighthearted and bubbly mannerisms, the frequency that they emit can and will almost magically make you feel better.
Now think about someone that you know that is continually complaining about everything, who’s life never seems to produce anything that makes them happy, and is continually complaining regardless of the circumstance. Do you like being around them? The answer is obvious isn’t it? Although you may love someone dearly, maybe even someone in your own family, if they continually only see the wrong or the bad things in any situation, they are not very pleasant to be around. In many cases you may find yourself avoiding them. Noone that I know wants to feel bad.
The energy that is created due to this type of action is projected outward and can and IS literally absorbed by you and will cause you to feel badly as well, regardless of how uplifted you may have felt when you first encountered them. This form of behavior emits a frequency of energy much lower than that of Joy and will literally effect those that come in contact with it. If you choose to continually be around them anyway your energy is also going to be effected and you too will begin to feel down and sad.
This is why so many motivational type teachers express the importance of being careful and selective about WHO you associate an dspend the majority of your time with.
Understanding this, is it not equally or even more important that you learn to control the emotions that you experience within yourself? Absolutely! If the downhearted emotions of others can have such an impact on you, doesn’t it make sense that your own emotions will have equally as much or more of an effect on your life outcomes than that of those that you come in contact with?
The bottom line is this, if you choose to attract to you those things that you most desire and that are of importance to you, you are going to have to learn how to recognize and change the internal emotions which are keeping you from realizing them, and discover how to create the correct vibratory output that will allow you to attract and experience whatever your desire may be.
The good news is that YOU CAN, and it is actually much easier to do than you may realize, once you know HOW.
Before we get into HOW to change those emotions, let’s delve into where the emotions that you experience come from.
The Source Of Emotions
The emotions that you currently experience are being experienced because of habits that you have formed over time. As you have discovered in previous issues, the biggest of these habits is the thoughts that you think. The habitual thoughts that you have learned to think. It is through these predominant and consistent thoughts that the beliefs that you currently hold are formed. It is due to a combination of the thoughts that you think and the beliefs that you hold that determine what emotions you will feel. Once you make a conscious effort to become aware of why and how these emotions are being created, you can then go to work on changing them which in turn will change the energy frequency that you are broadcasting, and as a result change the experiences that you are attracting and come to see manifest in your day to day life.
The time it takes to change them once you have come to a clear understanding of what they are, where they come from, and how they operate, fortunately takes MUCH less time and effort as it took to create them.
As you have previously learned, Einstein's discovery E=MC2 showed that ALL things in the entire Universe are at their core pure energy. The E in Einstein's equation stands for energy. Understanding that let’s break down the word emotion so that we can discover what the meaning of it really is. E-Motions are quite literally “Energy in Motion“. The emotions that you experience are creating an energy frequency which is broadcast outward in the form of a vibrational frequency which attracts to it energies of the same vibrational frequency and manifests in physical form based on the vibration of those frequencies.
The Universe just like your subconscious mind doesn’t differentiate between what we as humans perceive as good or bad, positive or negative, etc. but only delivers to you results in exact proportion to what you give out, or the seeds that you plant. ( Law of Attraction, Cause and Effect, Sowing and Reaping.) What you are giving out and which serves as the communication device that the Universe comprehends and responds to is the vibratory frequency of your emotions!!
Free will is and always has been your choice and how you choose to exercise that will is also your choice. The fact that all of your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions deliver back to you precisely what you emanate is also what many in spiritual circles refer to as Unconditional Love. You are provided with EXACTLY what you ask for and have faith will happen. This faith or belief that you broadcast to God, the Universe, or whatever you perceive it to be, is not based on what you “consciously” desire and think about, but instead is based on what is stored in the “subconscious” portion of your mind, which is directly related to which emotions that you experience!
As an example you may consciously desire to become wealthy, but due to previously established false self limiting beliefs that have been stored in the subconscious portion of your mind, which you may not even be conscious of, are what is going to determine the level of financial success that you will be able to achieve. If as a child you were surrounded and bombarded with statements such as “money is hard to come by” or “money doesn’t grow on trees“, or “you must work long and hard for the money that you obtain“, 100% of the time your subconscious beliefs surrounding money, more specifically the emotions that you experience as a result of them, are going to attract to you based on those underlying and many times subconscious and unrealized beliefs, and money WILL be hard to come by.
"As A Man Thinketh, So Is He"
When you begin to experience the emotions that don't FEEL good to you, this is your wake up call that you are out of alignment with attracting your desires and you can then make a conscious effort to change the thoughts which are responsible for creating those emotions.
It's important to remember that whichever emotions that you are experiencing, the Universe, God, Allah, or what ever you perceive it to be is going to work to provide you with precisely the results that you are asking for. If those emotions are communicating lack, anxiety, stress, etc. the Source is saying OK, here is more lack, anxiety, stress, etc. By the same token when your emotions DO feel good and you are expressing abundance, joy, peace, and well being, likewise the Universe says OK, here is more of that which you are asking for!!
This principle is precise and unwavering regardless of what life area it involves whether it be in any of the major life categories of money, health, or relationships. In order to begin experiencing your DESIRED result in ANY of these areas it is going to be necessary to change the emotions that you experience based on those beliefs. The emotion that you experience is based on the subconscious belief that you hold concerning whichever area it is, in this case money. By overwriting and changing the belief, you will automatically begin changing the emotions that surface as a result of that belief, and in turn will automatically and with seemingly miraculous and effortless ease begin attracting and changing the outcomes that you experience!
Understanding this principle and gaining the knowledge to begin changing the negative emotions that arise is crucial to your future success in producing the results that you desire.
Which brings us to our action steps for the next month…….
This Months Action Steps To Become Conscious Of and Change Your Self Limiting False Beliefs and The Emotions That Surface As A Result Of Them.
In the previous issue, we addressed learning to recognize some of the false beliefs that you hold. Hopefully you did that.
The first step in determining what is a false belief and what is not is actually very easy. How can you determine this? First of all you must determine specifically WHAT it is that you desire. For the sake of this exercise pick one thing that you most desire to have in your life. I’m going to assume that if you have a desire to attain it, whatever it may be, that you don’t currently possess it.
Understanding the fact that you have a desire to attain it, but haven’t as of yet received it in your life and are experiencing it, is enough to know that you have, either consciously or subconsciously, a false belief of some sort that is keeping you from manifesting it. To help this soak in a little the Source wants us to have the desires of our heart. If you have the desire, you have the ability to receive it.
Your current belief regarding this situation can be expressed in many ways. Maybe you truly desire to have whatever it is but you don’t feel that you are worthy of attaining it. This creates a negative emotion that you can "feel." Maybe it’s that although you have a SINCERE desire to possess it you don’t believe that it’s possible, and that you lack the ability and power to make it real. This creates a negative emotion that you can "feel." Maybe your current belief is established as a result of previous attempts to attain whatever it is but you feel that you failed in some way, and the thought of attempting it again raises the emotion of "fear of failure." This too creates a negative emotion that you can "feel." Another possibility is that you have established the belief that since you don’t have it, even as much as you desire it, it must not be "God’s Will." Whatever the reason may be, that reason is creating an emotion within you, a "feeling", and NONE of them FEELS very good. It is necessary to change the emotion that the lack of this desire is creating to an emotion that allows you to "feel" like you already possess whatever it might be, and regardless if you aren’t presently experiencing it in the physical world. As we have discovered in previous editions, EVERYTHING, both seen and unseen in the physical world was first derived as a thought.
In order to effectively do this exercise and begin to understand the creative power that it holds, it is necessary to make your desire realistic according to your own individual belief system. This can be many different things to various people. Using the example of money, for one person acquiring a million dollars may seem believable and doable at this point, but to another it is beyond the scope of possibility. If you are the type that has a hard time believing that attaining a million dollars is within your ability, lower the amount initially until it feels more comfortable to you. For example decide what is currently "believable" or attainable for your particular situation. In the case of money, would $100,000.00 make you feel more comfortable. $10,000.00? $5000.00? $1000.00? Whatever the amount is discern what at this point is not too big of a stretch for you.
Whether your desire is in the area of monetary gain, or any other life area it’s important to understand that the Universe has the unlimited means available to produce ten million dollars as easily as it has the ability to produce $1.00. The Universe already holds more wealth and abundance than you can possibly fathom and has no problem delivering to you "whatever" you desire and wishes for you to have it!! The only thing that will limit this amount is YOUR ability to experience and FEEL the kind of emotion that will allow it to happen for you. Remember it is the emotion that is attached to the belief that is going to determine the outcome. Your emotion is the communication system doing the asking. It is crucial that you are honest with yourself and discern how you truly feel regarding it. When you can successfully feel what it will be like to have it, you are beginning the process of literally "ALLOWING" it to be delivered to you.
Once you have finished discerning specifically how much money or whatever your desire may be it’s time to take the steps that will allow you to feel what it will be like once you have acquired whatever it is. This is accomplished through visualization. In order to effectively visualize, it will be necessary for you to find a quiet place to do a DAILY visualization process.
I personally prefer to visualize in the morning right after waking and just prior to going to sleep at night. If I think of it during the day and find the time t do it, I will also do it then. How and when you do it is up to you. The important thing is that you DO IT Consistently.
Rather than include the entire process here, visit the
Creative Visualization page
at the site. It explains in great detail how to effectively visualize and until the next Edition of Enlightened Journey comes out, do yourself a huge favor and make the effort to follow the process everyday if only for a few minutes. Once you have done this forget about it and go about your day to day activities.
This purpose today of this specific exercise is not necessarily designed to begin producing immediate results, (although it very well may) but is more focused on assisting you to begin developing the habit of becoming aware of your current emotions as they relate to your desired outcomes and allowing you to begin experiencing what a shift in the emotions or feelings that you are currently experiencing feels like. The purpose is to begin exercising your ability and allow you to see first hand that you do have control over the current emotions that you experience in your life.
Once you have effectively discovered that you do have that ability, and you have developed the belief that you are the one in control of your emotions rather than your emotions being in control of you, we will go to work on expanding the size of your desire and discover how to begin attracting those desires that you hold as dear and wish to experience. This exercise is designed specifically to assist you in recognizing and begin the clearing out of the emotional garbage which is keeping you from experiencing all that you desire and were created to experience.
Throughout the e-zine I use the example of money because that is what most choose to manifest. This exercise works the same whether it is money that you desire, better health, or more fulfilling relationships. Regardless of WHAT the desire is, the process is identical for attracting it. Which is exactly what we will cover in greater depth in the next edition of Enlightened Journey.
Until then, I hope that you will utilize your free will and choose to take the action steps recommended. I can assure you that if you will, you will begin to understand the importance and the unlimited power that this process holds in attracting and creating phenomenal results.
The results that you most desire, deserve, and were created to enjoy.

Inspiring Quotes Concerning Emotions
“Let us resolve to be masters, not the victims, of our history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to blind suspicions and emotions.” - John F. Kennedy
“Let's not forget that the little emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without realizing it.” -Vincent Van Gogh
“As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery… we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.” - Dalai Llama
“All emotions are pure which gather you and lift you up; that emotion is impure which seizes only one side of your being and so distorts you” -Rainer Maria Rilke
“All forms of beauty, like all possible phenomena, contain an element of the eternal and an element of the transitory , of the absolute and of the particular. Absolute and eternal beauty does not exist, or rather it is only an abstraction creamed from the general surface of different beauties. The particular element in each manifestation comes from the emotions: and just as we have our own particular emotions, so we have our own beauty.” -Charles Baudelaire
“When we direct our thoughts properly, we can control our emotions...” W Clement Stone
“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.” -Dale Carnegie
“If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I will double my labor. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions.” -Og Mandino
“To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.” -Jim Valvano
“Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life.” - Anthony Robbins
“When sadness comes, just sit by the side and look at it and say, “I am the watcher, I am not sadness,” and see the difference. Immediately you have cut the very root of sadness. It is no more nourished. It will die of starvation. We feed these emotions by being identified with them.” -Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
“The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts.” -Bertrand Russell
