Since you're receiving this edition of the Enlightened Journey Personal Empowerment newsletter, hopefully you've read the Welcome edition that was sent to you prior.
If you recall, in that 1st edition we talked about unlearning what holds you back and relearning what moves you forward. That a KEY part of transforming the "less than desired" aspects of life into the awesome and amazing.
In this edition, we're going to take the first step toward assisting your "Rockin self" to tap into the awesome and powerful you that you are, so you can begin making the profoundly positive "impact" that you CAN make in your life and the world at large as we covered in that edition.
It's through making that impact that enables you (or anyone who does so) to start weaving the kind of "life tapestry" that you'll be proud to display and LOVE to have.
Forget about all the hype, smoke and mirrors and 3 step easy
Doing so is going to require learning about, understanding and applying some things that you may not be (and chances are good are not) aware of. Or maybe you are aware of them, yet you haven't applied them as you know you should. If you were aware of them and/or had been applying them, you wouldn't still be looking.
Rather than traditional forms of education, the kind that we'll be undergoing is of a very specialized nature that entails a simultaneous combination of unlearning and relearning.
As the subtitle above states, it's an unlearning of what "seems to hold you back" and a relearning what most definitely moves you forward.
It's a process, yet one that is well worth undergoing, if you're serious about experiencing the awesome transformation that you can.
If you have overlooked the 1st edition, or for some reason just haven't read it yet, it would benefit you to do so prior to this edition. The reason WHY, is because each edition of Enlightened Journey builds on the previous. Missing an issue, would be (or at least could be) like missing a semester in school.
Since the subject matter in each and every edition has everything to do with desired transformation, enhancing the quality of your life and making the kind of large scale impact that enables your life to become all that it can be, if you're serious about getting that done, missing an issue isn't the "best" idea.
The fact is, focus and commitment is essential.
Prior to getting into the subject matter in this edition, I feel it's important to address a question that I get often from Enlightened Journey Community members.
It will save you the need to ask and save me some time too. :)
Who Am I and How Can You KNOW That What I Have To Share CAN Assist You In Enhancing The Quality of YOUR Life?
I'm not going to go into a long dialogue about who I am, where I've come from, what I've accomplished, the trials and tribulations I've experienced, the many miracles I've personally witnessed, or the transformation I've personally undergone over the past 4 plus decades since initially "choosing" to walk this path I'm currently on.
If you haven't grasped it already, you soon will, that this isn't about me. It's about you, your impact and the contribution you can make for yourself, those you love and on a much larger scale our world.
What I do here, is my way of making an impact.
As we covered in the 1st edition, the kind and quality of impact you make, is mirrored into each and every area of your life. If you'll recall, as was also stated, you cannot NOT make an impact. You ARE making one every second of every minute of EVERY day.
The kind and quality of that "impact", determines and reveals itself in tangible form, the kind, quality and the size of the tapestry which is your life. The quality of your unique "tapestry" is determined by each and every thread you weave.
Each and every thread can be related to a choice. Every thread stems from a choice. And make no mistake, EACH and EVERY choice counts.
That's what this newsletter and EVERYTHING I do is about. Assisting all who are open and willing to create the kind of tapestry that you'd LOVE to weave and be PROUD to display.
With regard to the question, "HOW can you know if I can assist you?"
Whether you remain willing to allow what I do to assist you or not, will become evident (or not) soon enough. What I do KNOW based on decades of personal experience and assisting a diverse group of individuals on a global scale, is the fact that, what I do contribute is powerful. It will be of enormous benefit, if you choose to allow it to become that.
Whether you allow yourself to personally witness this power or not has nothing to do with me and everything to do with you.
But make no mistake. The kind of impact my contribution has on you (or the lack of) will be determined by how willing you are to focus and how committed to the process you are.
It all boils down to the commitment you're willing to make. If you'll do that, I can assure you, you'll love the results.
If you feel you MUST know more about me, what I do and WHY I do it, there are 2 resources where you can discover more about that.
My Bio can be found here.
More about the website, why I created it and how it's designed to assist you can be found here.
Since I personally believe that the opinions, perceptions and results of others are a far more accurate depiction of the impact that our individual contributions have on others, perhaps reading the accounts of other Enlightened Journey Global Community members who have arrived here prior to you, may prove to be helpful as well.
Although it's my sincere hope that you'll find what you'll be receiving in each and every edition of Enlightened Journey to be equally as insightful, empowering, as well as profoundly life enhancing as others have, whether that will unfold in the way I hope and intend for you or not, is ultimately up to you.
As we covered in detail in the Welcome Edition, that's another one of many "common threads" that connects and ties us all together. We get to choose what we do or don't do as we go through life and walk our own unique paths. Those individual choices are what determine the quality of "impact" that we make or feel we're not making.
Be assured of this...each and every choice DOES play a role in determining how masterful we become as we weave our own unique tapestries.
We'll be covering more about that in the upcoming editions and revealing just how significant and important each and every choice that YOU make is.
As you'll hopefully begin to see in just a few moments, if you're not already aware of it, the kind and quality of life you experience and the events, conditions and circumstances that reveal themselves in YOUR life are, for the most part, determined by you.
No, you can't and don't control all that happens. You certainly can't control the choices of others. But at the very least, you have a degree of control over WHATEVER happens, simply because it's YOU who determines how you perceive every situation. It's that choice which also determines your "response or reaction," which in turn determines the kind and quality of "impact" that we're ALL making ALL the time.
It's an unseen, little understood and often overlooked kind of impact, yet it's where everything begins and why we experience whatever we do in life.
Enough about that for now. Let's pick up where we left of in the previous edition and quickly cover something else that's VITALLY important to understand...
There Is NOTHING; No Thing "Out There" That Can Keep YOU From Being, Doing and Having What You "Truly Desire" In Life
While most people today believe they're limited by what's happening in the world, they're not. They "think" they are and honestly "believe" they are even. They honestly believe that the BIG PICTURE tapestry of the world determines the kind and quality of their own.
Although MANY (most perhaps) "believe" that, it doesn't make it true. The fact is, even though many DO believe that, it is NOT definitively true at all. It's not because it's not based on a Higher Truth.
Where you can go, as well as where you choose not to go, isn't dependent on me or anyone else for that matter. It's also not dependent on the economy, on governments, institutions, other individuals or anything else going on in the world "out there."
Those things CAN impact and affect your life. They CAN minimize the significant and powerfully transformational contribution you CAN make. They CAN create and have you outwardly focused on what seems so real. Tangibly speaking it is "real." There are a number of "tangibly real" things taking place in the world out there that CAN take you off your game.
But they only can if you choose to adopt, hold and choose to entertain a fear based mindset. Your observation of "less than desired' things in the world CAN freeze you up, keep you "seemingly stuck", fearing this, dodging that, waiting for something good to happen, all the while avoiding, ignoring and perhaps even running away from what you hope, wish, and perhaps even, have been praying will change.
But that CAN only happen if you allow it to happen.
We DO a LOT of things trying to create or avoid change, yet don't often understand that BEING the change is the key.
I'll assure you of one thing. If you believe that someone or some thing out there is responsible for your results, it will seem that way. Your tangible reality will reflect that. If you honestly believe that someone or something out there will stop you, it/they will. But if you KNOW that they cant, they not only CAN'T, they won't.
Chances are good that you became a part of the community because you're desiring change of some form. More specifically desired change.
It's important to specify that, because change is inevitable. It's always unfolding everywhere. It's always occurred, is currently occurring and it always will. Some (perhaps MUCH of it) isn't desirable at all.
Nonetheless, whether it's change of a desired, less than desired or somewhere in between kind, one thing is certain. Change is inevitable. It's an immutable, unwavering and never changing fact of life.
It's a constant and the one and only thing that's "certain" in life.
We can't change THAT.
What we can change and do have complete and total control over is how we respond or react to this ever constant change. It's how you respond or react to the inevitable changes unfolding all around you, that determine the benefits you receive or feel you don't receive as we ALL experience and move through the many changes unfolding all around us, ALL of the time.
The BIGGEST factor which determines that, is what we "think we know." What we "think we know" is the product of what we've learned and often call "knowledge."
But not all "knowledge" is created equal. Much of what we perceive to be factual knowledge is of a kind and quality that keeps us "trying", doing, sometimes fearful, and all the while wanting or desiring something different.
Which brings us to a vitally important point...
"The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge." - Stephen Hawking.
Throughout life, we've acquired all kinds of knowledge. We've also heard time and time again that "knowledge is power." Because we have "heard that" SO much, most everyone has come to believe that over time.
But it's not necessarily true. Not always. In fact, in today's information overload world, in many cases, it's NOT "true" at all.
Sometimes it's partially true, yet at the same time, sometimes it's not. The FACT is, although knowledge can lead to power, knowledge in and of itself isn't power.
The application of correct knowledge is what gives life to the power it CAN contain.
Sometimes, what we believe and perceive to be "knowledge", is nothing more than a form of information and data that we've learned, blindly accepted, taken at face value and believe to be true/factual. Many times what we "learn and believe" to be true and factual is nothing more than an "illusion of knowledge."
We've learned that it's true. It's often conveyed with authority and with "claims" that it's "true", yet oftentimes it's not "true" at all. In nearly every case, it comes from those we depend on, love and/or trust. In MANY cases, it's anything but "true." We've accepted it as true. We believe that it is. Since we've learned it, it must be true.
Yet many times it's NOT true at all. In FAR more cases than not, it is NOT based on a Higher Truth.
, although due to the power that we have ALL been freely provided and the free will to utilize that indescribable form of power however we ourselves "choose", we unknowingly and unwittingly "allow" less than true "things" to become a part of our "belief systems." Because we do, it becomes "tangibly true" for us. In many cases, and often remains..sometimes.
We're told that it's factual and true "knowledge", yet in MANY cases, it's of a kind and quality that has us consistently "missing the mark" and never provides what it is that we've been told, taught and believe it will. It never provides what it is that we ALL "truly desire."
Do you remember from the last edition what that One thing we ALL truly desire is?
The one true desire we ALL have is to be happy and fulfilled.
Much of the "knowledge" that we receive throughout life keeps us from that, rather than provides it.
Some of that acquired knowledge DOES provide us with some "stuff." There is a kind of knowledge that does just that. But it's limited to the acquisition of stuff. It does, because it's focused on oftentimes provides us with stuff, yet at the same time limits and keeps us from fulfilling and experiencing the one "true desire" we all have.
It's a kind of knowledge that's limited to only surface level results.
It's true, it's "good" it's factual too. Tangibly speaking, it's effective and even perceived as being "powerful" and on target "knowledge." But, even as much as we think and believe that...even though it can provide us with plenty of surface level "stuff", it doesn't get to the heart of the matter and quite often, even keeps us from getting to the place where we ALL "truly desire" to be.
Even though this form of knowledge can and does provide surface level "stuff", even it, until it's consistently applied, doesn't even provide that.
Unless we put that knowledge into action and DO it, the potential power that can be unleashed by applying it, doesn't reveal, in tangible and measurable ways at least, just how factual and results producing it is.
There's also "knowledge" that we've been told, taught and think is true, yet it misses the mark entirely. This kind of "knowledge", even when applied creates less than, and sometimes even the opposite effect than we've learned, believe and think it will.
Unless "knowledge" addresses the tangibles and intangibles, and at the same time aligns and harmonizes with the Higher Truth, it can "seem as if", no matter how much "knowledge" we gain, whether applied, or not, is ineffective in providing what we were told and taught that it will, let alone what we ALL "truly desire."
Enlightened Journey and the boatload of content throughout AbundanceandHappiness.com provides a very specialized form of knowledge.
It DOES align with and DOES convey what I KNOW to be a Higher Truth. In fact, it's the kind of knowledge that provides ALL you could possibly need to face, acknowledge, conquer and make the very best of whatever changes you or the world might undergo, while creating amazing results for yourself.
The tangible and measurable kind and the deepest, most sought out, yet seldom found kind too.
Although there's MUCH "knowledge" available today that makes you feel all "warm and fuzzy", unless it produces results that are tangible and measurable, it's not of a kind or quality that produces a form of "all level" results.
If results aren't tangible and measurable...if they don't benefit and uplift you in both tangible and intangible ways...if they don't, in some way, serve ALL involved, they are NOT the kind of "results" that you're quite capable of creating.
Nor are they kind that you want either. Not based on how I see things anyway.
But even "knowledge" that is based on, supported by and does in fact align and harmonize with the Higher Truth that you CAN Be, do and have what you truly desire in ALL facets of life, it STILL requires APPLYING it. It requires INTERNALIZING it to the point where you KNOW how "true" it is. It requires making it a part of your BEING. It requires thinking it, speaking it and walking the kind of walk that is necessary for effectively and consistently "applying it."
If you're to DO that, it requires becoming and remaining "teachable" too.
That's key because if and when you stop being teachable, you cap what you could be, do and have in life. You max out. You limit the tangible and intangible wants, the wants/desires, what you "truly desire", and CAN have.
When you become "unteachable" you dramatically limit yourself to what you COULD have.
The Higher Truth is, you can never really "cap yourself or max out." You can't because what there is to learn, be, do, have and experience as you go through life, is literally infinite in nature. There is no "cap" or max" to how "good" or "seemingly bad" things can become in the infinite scope of things.
Capping yourself or maxing out can only happen as a result of YOU "choosing" to cap and/or max yourself out. That's when you make the choice to stop having all the awesome, amazing, fun and profound "things" that are, always have been and always will be available to you...an INFINITE variety of things, limited ONLY to and BY you.
Point being, whether you move forward, stay where you are, remain seemingly stuck, or perceive yourself as going backwards is entirely up to you.
That too will become all the more evident and hopefully, crystal clear as we move forward.
There are A LOT of people who don't see that. Many of those who don't SEE it, don't yet believe it. And those who don't see it or believe it simply haven't yet allowed and may never allow themselves to see or believe it.
There are also those who believe it, yet who don't yet KNOW it.
There is a HUGE difference between belief and KNOWING. Beliefs are "learned" at some point during life. KNOWING is provided by something that transcends the limitations of this life.
That's a whole other topic, but it's important to make the suggestion here.
As a result of many "believing" any number of things but not really KNOWING, in MANY cases, they never really FULLY accept responsibility for their lives, which in turn keeps many from ever taking conscious control of the physical, financial, relational, mental, emotional and/or spiritual aspects of life, which collectively determine the quality of yours.
There's that "life tapestry" thing again.
The fact is, most don't experience the quality of life, nor create the AWESOME tapestry that they could. That we ALL CAN.
It also often "needlessly" keeps most from making the kind and quality of large scale impact; a very positive and profound kind of impact, that we ALL have the capability of making.
The unfortunate and inevitable result of that choice is that those who make the "choice" to often unknowingly and unintentionally bury their hopes, dreams, desires and inherent gifts beneath layers of fear, non factual externally acquired beliefs which at best, only provide a tangled web of false assumptions.
In doing so they relinquish their inherent ability to create a kind and quality of life that so many consistently hope, wish and pray for, but which so few ever actually see and experience in tangible and measurable form.
Sadly, when that happens, they in turn DRAMATICALLY LIMIT the kind and quality of impact they desire to make, CAN CHOOSE to make, any time they choose, on both an individual and LARGE SCALE, fully believing and consistently making excuses as to why they CAN'T.
So if all these "common factors" we've discussed are true; and they are, why is it that so many people aren't making the kind of impact individually and collectively that we all have the desire, the ability, the gifts and every tool we could possibly need to do so?
Is it because they can't or because they "are choosing" not to?
Let's bring it a bit closer to home...
Is it because YOU can't or because YOU are choosing not to?
It's my hope and intention to assist those who "truly desire" to, but aren't "quite there yet", to begin choosing consciously and intentionally so ALL who are serious about it, CAN begin SEEING and EXPERIENCING a kind and quality of life that they DO "truly desire" and CAN create for themselves.
I commend you for being here because it reveals something about you, that is to some degree uncommon. You're curious, serious and/or fully committed to doing what's necessary to enhance your life in some way, shape or form.
Regardless of what you might currently think and believe; failure, mediocrity and extraordinary success aren't as "different" as many "believe" they are. They are all nothing more or less than "experiences" which always find their root in a series of choices...individual choices.
That's the common thread that ties failure, mediocrity and failure ALL together. And because that's "true" there is nothing going on in your life, in your immediate circle of influence, in your city, your state, your country, or the world at large that can keep you from achieving whatever it might be that you "truly desire" to achieve.
Only you can.
Point being, it doesn't matter where you are or how far you desire to go in life. You ALWAYS have had, currently do have and ALWAYS will have the power to choose how far you go, how limited you become for yourself and the ability to create whatever kind of impact and change you desire to create...or not is entirely up to you.
What's the Bottom Line of that dialogue? Well, as I've already shared in the Welcome Edition...
YOU Rock!!! You absolutely, positively DO ROCK.
And if you don't clearly see and KNOW that yet, it's my hope, desire and heartfelt intention to show you just how "real and true" that ALL of those FACTS are.
That's but one of many things that I hope to enable and empower you to not only SEE but INTERNALIZE so you might consciously, intentionally and purposefully DO something with them as we walk and progress down this "personal empowerment path" together.
It's a path that I KNOW leads to what I like to call Real Freedom. It provides "more than that" actually, but we'll save that for a future edition. We'll take it a step at a time.
Think you CAN'T get there from here? Take heart. It's also my hope, intention and heartfelt desire to meet you where you are...REGARDLESS of where that might be.
Enlightened Journey Was Created and Designed To Meet You Where You Are So You Might Create Your "More" In Your Own Awesome and Unique Kind of Way
Due to the fact that MANY people subscribe to various newsletters yet never actually read or do anything with them, I think it's important to point out once again that Enlightened Journey isn’t just another newsletter. It’s unique in many ways.
Maybe you already see and "get that" by now.
The reason I've chosen to make it so unique, convey the unique message that I do and do things in the way and order that I do, is because of the simple fact that you are unique.
In fact you’re both awesome AND unique. If you're like MOST people; if you believe, perceive, view and SEE yourself as MOST in the world have been taught and learned to see themselves, that's perhaps a tough one to swallow. Maybe even for you, it's REALLY tough. Perhaps even 800 pound gorilla tough.
That's why, in the early stages, that will be the primary focus of the newsletter. To reveal to you and assist you in seeing; really and truly SEEING in very clear, logical, practical, tangible and easy to grasp ways, just how "real and true" that is.
You may not be able to see or comprehend that just yet. You may not yet KNOW just how Awesome and Unique you really are. And if you don't, then it's a given that you don't yet fully grasp or understand just how powerful, VALUABLE and amazing you are either.
That's yet another of many things that most people simply "don't KNOW."
If you don't quite yet, that's OK. But if you'd truly like to SEE; REALLY SEE, how and why that's true, you're in the right place. And you ARE because I'm going to be DOING my very best to show you just how TRUE that is too.
I'm going to be providing you with plenty of information and revealing concepts and strategies that will reveal to you just how "true" that is. And it IS absolutely, positively true, whether you KNOW it yet or not.
But to see that, if you don't already, there's a step that must be taken first. It's a simple step but it's necessary. It's going to require a level of commitment on your part. The initial commitment required is quite simple and easy.
What is this initial commitment and how "simple and easy" will it be?
The initial commitment entails nothing more than YOU keeping your eyes peeled for each future edition of Enlightened Journey. When it arrives in your inbox, open it. Don't just open it, make the "choice" to read it, digest it, ponder it, carefully consider what it conveys and then once you've done that, you'll be better prepared to make a more educated and informed decision if the future steps I'll be recommending that you take are applicable or not applicable for you.
I'll assure you that they are, but I certainly cannot, nor do I have any desire to convince or MAKE you see that. I have no desire to convince, or MAKE you see or believe anything. What I do intend and desire to do is to contribute to you in such a way that I KNOW based on personal experience can dramatically as well as positively impact your life and the world at large in FAR GREATER ways than most can conceive or imagine.
Perhaps in far greater and more desirably pleasing ways than YOU can conceive or imagine.
The first step in that process once the initial commitment is made, is not only understanding, but KNOWING how just how Awesome, Unique and Utterly Amazing you TRULY are.
Although I can't know whether you'll make that commitment and follow through on it or not, what I do know as a result of connecting and communicating with individuals from all around the globe, over the course of many years, is that most people won't. Because they "won't", they never arrive at the place where we ALL truly desire to be. Few enable and allow themselves to SEE, let alone experience how true it is. Due to their own "choices the vast majority in the world don't KNOW that.
They don't, simply WON'T make the commitment to DO what's necessary to SEE and experience for themselves just how "true" that is.
Not because they can't. But rather because they choose not to.
The reason so many do choose not to, is because it requires DOING 2 things that for whatever reason A LOT of people have a very difficult time doing.
Those 2 things are FOCUS and COMMITMENT.
Transforming results that you might think just happen or that you've believed for a long time can't become any "better", requires undergoing a "process" of unlearning and relearning. This process requires FOCUS and an uncommon level of COMMITMENT if you're to break the habitual patterns that have provided the results you have experienced, are experiencing, yet have no desire to experience.
Doing that is going to require some FOCUS and a COMMITMENT.
YOUR focus and YOUR commitment. And make no mistake it's going to REQUIRE some focus and it does require a level of commitment on your part. The F and C word keeps a LOT of people from ever taking the first step which is necessary, as are the proceeding steps. But if we're ever to get to the heart of the matter, discover who and what we "truly are", KNOW what we're ALL "truly capable of" being, doing and having in life, and clearly seeing the kind of impact that we ALL can and in fact, do make, it's necessary.
Some begin but never actually follow through and begin DOING things in a such a way that enables them to experience a kind and quality of life that follows making the kind of impact that aligns and harmonizes with what they "truly desire" most.
Would you agree that the small commitment I've recommended that you make is quite small, if it really and truly DID enable you to not only see but KNOW just how Awesome, Unique and Amazing you truly are?
Would you also agree that it's a very small commitment to make if it enabled and empowered you to begin actually MAKING the kind of impact that you CAN make?
And would you consider it a worthy commitment and a wise investment of your time, energy and focus if it provided what you truly desire most in life?
I hope so.
Because I KNOW that if you'll choose to do that, it will become increasingly clear to you that not only does that pertain to YOU individually, it pertains to ALL of us...unconditionally.
Yes, yet still another "common thread."
Granted, MOST people can't and don't see that in today's world either. And because they can't see it in themselves, it blinds them to the fact that others are equally Awesome, Unique and Amazing as well, which leads to many people not treating themselves or others as the Awesome, Unique and Amazing beings that WE ALL are.
You most definitely don't have to look very far to see just how "sadly true" that is.
But it certainly doesn't mean that it isn't "true." It simply means that they can't yet "SEE it", which in turn doesn't enable and allow them to "use" their own Awesomeness and Uniqueness in such a way that moves them forward; in the quickest, most efficient and most pleasing way possible, which in turn enables them to arrive at whatever destination it might be that they "truly desire" to reach, in the simplest, quickest and most effortless way possible.
They are making an impact, although it's an impact that provides FAR LESS and in some cases the polar opposite of what so many "CLAIM" they want.
There's something else about each of us that many are unaware of and often overlook. That's the fact that in addition to being Awesome, Unique and Amazing, we're Immensely Powerful too.
In fact it's safe to say that we are Powerful Beyond Measure.
That's not some new age, airy fairy, Pollyanna concept. It's based on what I often refer to as A Higher Truth.
We ARE all "Master Weavers" of our unique tapestries as I mentioned in the Welcome edition.
It's not necessary to DO anything, have anything, or be anything more than you already are to become Awesome, Unique, Amazing and Powerful Beyond Measure. It's not, because we ALREADY ARE that. You are. We all are.
It IS necessary that you make the choice to KNOW that and DO what's necessary, if you truly want to SEE just how powerfully and transformationally true it is. Then once you KNOW, it's simply a matter of redirecting that Awesomeness, Uniqueness and Power in a conscious, intentional and purposeful kind of way so you CAN, not only begin to SEE, but KNOW in an unshakable and irrefutable kind of way, just how "true" that is and how tangibly true it can become.
If you're currently unable to SEE and KNOW just how absolutely true that is right now; if you've never enabled and allowed yourself to explore, discover and actually SEE and KNOW just Awesome, Unique, Amazing and Powerful you "truly are", chances are good that you're also unable to grasp just how IMMENSE, POSITIVE and PROFOUND of an impact that you can make on a very large scale, if ever and whenever you "choose to."
If that's the case, no worries. The reason is simple. It's simply because you haven't made that choice yet. Should you choose to make it, you'll SEE and KNOW just how real, true and unchangeable that is too.
And it is true, irrefutable and unchangeable, whether we can SEE it yet or not, simply because we were ALL provided a Free Will and because of this "AWESOME and amazing gift", we're ALL without exception using this same awesome, unique, amazing immense and immeasurable power 24/7 in our own “awesome and unique” kind of way.
Yet still another "common thread", although many are doing their weaving in a way that doesn't enable and allow them to SEE it or KNOW it.
As true as that is, it's equally true that due to a lack of clarity, focus, vision, combined with a lack of understanding of how VITALLY important those attributes are, many choose to "blindly engage" themselves in the game of life, never discovering what the rules and most effective strategies are.
The sad yet very "true" reality is, most are using their "Immeasurable Power" unconsciously. As a result of the experiences encountered by "choosing" to live life in that way, it leads many to honestly believe and perceive that they are ANYTHING BUT Awesome, Unique, Amazing and Powerful Beyond Measure.
And it's this less than empowering self image which leads to the unfortunate, "untrue" and dis-empowering conclusion that they have no, or very limited power.
It's a mindset that leads many people; most people in fact to seeing and experiencing results in life that we judge and label as being anything but awesome and amazing.
It becomes "True" for them granted. But it MOST CERTAINLY is NOT based on a Higher Truth."
That's what blinds so many to the immutable, unwavering, easily verifiable and long substantiated FACT which keeps so many from tuning into, SEEING, understanding, KNOWING and really grasping the Higher Truth that we are ALL Awesome, Unique, Amazing and Powerful Beyond Measure.
But we ARE. We ALL are, we always have been and we always will be.
But ultimately "SEEING and KNOWING" that or not is, as everything else in life is, a choice. A personal choice. YOUR choice. And although I've made the recommendation and truly hope that it's advice that you'll heed, commit to and follow through on for your own sake, as well as the world at large, you have the Free Will to choose and DO whatever it might be that you yourself decide to do.
There's only so much I can do to assist you. But rest assured I WILL BE doing all I possibly can and YOU do whatever you will with it...fair?
What Do You Believe, Perceive and "Think You Know" To Be True About God/Source, Yourself, Others and Life in General?
Depending on how you view yourself currently; what you believe to be true about yourself, the Source of your understanding, others, and life in general, combined with what you “believe and perceive” individually as being real, right and true, you may not yet be able to see just how Awesome, Unique, Amazing and Powerful you are. Based on where you are right now, you may not give a lot of credence to anything I've shared thus far, let alone buy into the FACT that you are Powerful Beyond Measure.
You're certainly not anywhere close to alone if you believe that.
I know I didn't believe it when I first heard it more than 4 decades ago. In fact, upon first hearing that, I was quite convinced that it was an utterly ridiculous statement. I did that is, until I came to the place where life led me down some paths where the scenery became anything but Awesome and Amazing. That path led to some scenery that was without a doubt FAR LESS awesome and amazing in FAR MORE ways than I WANTED it to be.
Care to guess what I did?
I made the choice to DO what was necessary to move beyond WANTING change. I got "REALLY serious" about learning, growing and changing the quality of my own life, made the necessary commitments, readjusted my priorities and slowed down long enough to make the COMMITMENT to FOCUS on something that, at the time, I HOPED would turn things around.
The result of that choice, is that I began begin tuning in, becoming aware of, identifying and eventually discarding many of my long held INHERITED beliefs; a kind of which proved to be quite self limiting and in fact very self sabotaging.
That initial HOPE transformed into a tangible reality.
That required unlearning a number of my long held beliefs and perceptions regarding myself, others, God (or whatever label you prefer) and life in general.
Through "choosing to do that" and then committing to keep on keepin on, I discovered that much of what I'd been taught, believed, which I based my choices and actions on, were the very beliefs, perceptions, choices and actions that were keeping me from seeing and experiencing a kind and quality of scenery that I WANTED and "truly desired" to see.
Through eliminating and "unlearning" much of what I thought and honestly believed to be true and then making the choice to replace those beliefs with more empowering ones, life changed in a big way. The kind and quality of impact I was making shifted in an equally big way and what came back to me was quite literally MIND boggling initially.
But the FIRST STEP in that process required understanding the importance of becoming keenly and consciously aware of which beliefs I was holding on to, that were holding me back and which ones were serving me and moving me forward.
Once I did that, I became enabled to begin enhancing and expanding the "Beliefs and Perceptions" that served me rather than hindered, and simultaneously eliminated and replaced those that didn't.
That's where our Awesomeness, Uniqueness, Amazingness and Power or the "perceived lack" of it stems from. Our beliefs and perceptions. That's also what determines how we think, how we feel, the quality of our choices, what we do or don't do, the quality of that doing AND the kind of energy we give to it, which inevitably determines what we have or don't have individually.
That is what determines the kind and quality of IMPACT we'll make on a large scale.
Bottom line, it's ALL about our beliefs and perceptions. It's those 2 factors and those 2 factors alone that determine what we "think we know" which transforms into what we experience in life.
Due to what you “currently know” to be true or untrue as well as what you believe to be possible or not possible for you, you may or may not grasp, or even be ready to accept that simple fact yet. Due to many factors that we'll be exploring and examining in great, yet easy understand detail, you may not be able to see just how Awesome, Unique, Amazing and Immensely Powerful YOU "truly are" due to what you "think you know."
If that’s the case, no worries. Don’t feel alone. Few do actually. Far fewer do than don’t. That's for sure. That's also the one and only reason why so few experience the life of their dreams whatever those individual dreams might be. That's also why so few move beyond the "status quo" and experience an extraordinary quality of life.
That's precisely why so few can honestly state that they experience a life of harmony, joy, fulfillment and Real Freedom.
They just don't know what they don't know.
And guess what? That's where I come in. That's WHY I do what I do. My "job" isn't to show or tell you that you CAN, but reveal in logical, practical and easy to digest ways, WHY you can. Once you understand WHY, then you can DO it and experience just how "true it is for yourself.
Find comfort in the fact that I'll be doing my very best to reveal to you in a very simple, clear and concise kind of way just how real and true that is.
And at the same time I'll be doing my very best to show you just how Awesome, Unique and Amazing you "truly are" too.
It's my hope, intention and Soul Purpose, all rolled into one, that I'll do what's necessary to reveal to YOU the power you have to transform the quality of your life exponentially if you choose to.
And although you might have any number of views, beliefs and perceptions regarding why that's true or NOT true currently, there's only one really.
And as we've already covered, it's YOU. And it's ALWAYS going to be YOU whether you KNOW that yet or not. Whether you ever come to the place that you're willing to accept it or not, is entirely up to you.
Because those who DON'T see themselves as Awesome, Unique, Amazing and Powerful Beyond Measure simply don't "perceive" themselves that way due to what they "think they know."
Their existing beliefs, perceptions and how they SEE things doesn't enable and allow them to do so.
What's often overlooked by those who choose such a limiting, short sighted and often times self sabotaging view of themselves, often times never come to the realization that much of what they've learned that led to such a limited and "less than true" view of themselves, others, or life in general was acquired, adopted and unknowingly accepted from those who didn't KNOW either.
It's those same teachings which point to and reveal a kind and quality of individual knowing; often times a deeply buried internal knowing at a subconscious level which always shows up in tangible and measurable form in a never failing and unconditional kind of way just as they are choosing.
But because these beliefs have become so deeply buried and those who this applies to have become so habitual in their thought processes and the choices and actions that always proceed them, they don't even realize they ARE choosing them.
And it's true that we DO have a choice in determining the kind and quality of what "shows up" in our lives starting right here and now simply because, regardless of what we've been taught; aside from how true we might believe what we've been taught to be, we have the ability to enhance and elevate those beliefs anytime we choose.
Those who choose to do so get to see in tangible and measurable form just how "true" that is and in turn make a significant and profoundly positive impact on the world.
Those who don't "choose that" never do.
Regardless of which choice is made, they "get to see" just how "true that is" which further solidifies their "beliefs and perceptions" as empowering or limiting and self sabotaging as they might be. And the results they see and consistently experience further reinforces in their own minds as well as in tangible and measurable ways on an individual and collective scale just how "right they are."
Some go through their entire lives getting to see just how right they are in a very displeasing and dis-empowering way. As a result, due to the "seemingly inescapable cycle" of "seemingly endless" displeasing and less than desired results that always follow, they develop an even greater and more powerful solidified belief of just how "powerLESS" they are.
And they get to be right.
Their beliefs, thoughts, emotions, choices, words and actions align, harmonize and inevitably mirror and solidify this knowing that they've learned and choose to hold and it "shows up" in tangible and measurable form.
But on the other hand, those that recognize this "fact" and have made "the choice" to develop an enhanced and expanded "belief system" develop a KNOWING (not to be confused with a kind of knowing that we've learned) that aligns and harmonizes with what I often refer to as a Higher Truth.
They come to KNOW their true worth and value. They discover and begin utilizing their unique gifts and talents. They contribute these gifts and talents to the world consistently and ultimately experience Real Wealth, Real Success, Real Freedom and Real Fulfillment in their lives.
And ultimately they move beyond belief and come to KNOW that they CAN experience physical, financial, relational, mental, emotional and spiritual harmony in their lives whenever they choose to.
Taking those first baby steps can "seem" hard. It can "seem" extremely difficult to break long engaged in, deeply embedded and subconsciously ingrained habitual patterns. But when you "choose" that, commit to the process and give it the focus and attention necessary, before you know it, it becomes second nature. It becomes automatic and effortless. Your old "nature" and way of doing things passes and your new nature takes over.
It's only because their beliefs, thoughts, emotions, words and actions align, harmonize and at just the right time, inevitably mirror this KNOWING that they hold.
People, circumstances, things, ideas, etc. etc. begin "showing up" which enable the tangible and measurable manifestation of heartfelt desire in ways and through means which are often perceived and labeled as being "profound, seemingly magical and miraculous" even.
And guess what happens?
They "get to be right" too.
Unlike those who know they can't, those who KNOW they can, DO.
There's a HUGE difference between knowing and KNOWING. There's an equally huge difference between experience and EXPERIENCE.
That's something else we'll be exploring and examining in great, eye opening and insightful detail in future editions of Enlightened Journey.
The transformational and profoundly significant difference between knowing and KNOWING, experiencing and EXPERIENCING, seeing and SEEING.
For now I'll just say, that's the really cool and exciting thing about life. We get to choose what we know as well as what we KNOW. That's what determines how we view ourselves, others, and the world at large, which in turn determines "what shows up" and inevitably how we see, view and experience life individually.
We also "get to" believe, perceive and see life for the gift or the curse that it is. We "get to" place whatever label we choose based on our individual beliefs, perceptions, experiences and the judgments that ALWAYS follow, which determine whatever label we choose.
One thing is certain. Whether we judge, label and see life as the gift, the curse or somewhere in between...
We ALWAYS in ALL WAYS, "Get to be right."
The fact of the matter is, what so many have learned, "claim to know" and "CHOOSE" to hold onto, more often than not conflicts with the kind and quality of KNOWING that enables and "allows" us to experience a kind and quality of life that aligns and harmonizes with what so many "claim" they want. It's the very thing that "needlessly" keeps so many from making the LARGE SCALE impact that we are ALL quite capable of making.
But as you’ll hopefully see and understand soon, regardless of where you are now; aside from what you believe, perceive and THINK you know about God, yourself, others or life in general, one immutable, unwavering and never changing FACT will ALWAYS hold true as it always has.
And that simple fact is the fact that we get to choose and based on our choice or series of choices, we ALWAYS, in ALL ways get to be right. Source ALWAYS says "Yes", and when we get to the place where we SEE that; when we KNOW that and EXPERIENCE that for ourselves, it also reveals still another immutable, unwavering and never changing fact which is...
...you REALLY DO Rock, you are AWESOME, Unique, Amazing and YOU ARE Powerful Beyond Measure.
And if you're currently unable to look at and SEE yourself, others or life in that way, it's simply a matter of redirecting your Awesomeness, Uniqueness, Amazingness and Immeasurable Power in a more conscious, intentional and purposeful kind of way.
Because YOU ARE equally as Unique, Awesome, Amazing and Powerful as those who do experience lives of Real Success, Real Harmony, Real Joy, Real Fulfillment and Real Freedom FOR SURE.
You may just not KNOW IT yet which is the ONE and ONLY thing that will keep you from SEEING and believing it which in turn will keep it from "showing up" in your life in the way that it CAN.
But make no mistake...
THAT is FOR SURE and IT IS an immutable and unwavering fact that is "true", has always been true and is NEVER going to change..
It's yet another of those "common threads" like those we discussed earlier.
Because that's "true", you DO have the ability to experience the same as those who HAVE made the choice to enhance and expand upon what they "thought they knew" into a greatly enhanced and expanded form of KNOWING and who also experience physical, financial, relational, mental, emotional and spiritual harmony as a result…regardless of what you or anyone else might currently think, believe and "claim to know."
Granted this fact MAY BE based on a Higher Truth than you're currently aware of. You may not yet fully grasp or understand how real and true that is. Or you MAY know already but you just haven't yet made the choice to DO anything with it.
It's also quite possible that you simply don't know where to begin. You may not know how to begin enhancing and elevating your current belief system.
It's not nearly as difficult as many think it is. In coming editions I'll be revealing and showing you how to DO just that.
That's enough for now. Based on what I've shared up to this point, you have much to consider, process and think about.
In the next edition, I'll be sharing some things that MAY very well prove to be the "eye opener" and "belief expander" that enables YOU to begin choosing and DOING things in such a way that enables you to see that getting what you want and creating your "dream life" isn't nearly as difficult to create as MOST think and believe it is.
The fact of the matter is, it's much more "simple and DOABLE" than MOST can conceive or imagine, which is precisely why so many "think and believe" that creating an EXPERIENCING an "extraordinary quality of life" is reserved for the lucky and fortunate few.
The next edition will begin the "process" of showing you just how "real and true" that is and WHY too.
Until then, here’s to you being, doing and having more of “whatsoever you desire” in and for your life...or not.
