Whose Reality Is It Anyway?
Every major holiday provides a theme for me to offer a metaphysical lesson
that relates to prosperity consciousness and success in life - for
everyone, no matter where you live on our planet. I think
you'll like my twist on this one. But first a couple of notes
about the holiday...
Day in the U.S., which is officially Washington's Birthday,
now honors both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, two truly great
leaders who changed the course of American history.
You may be familiar with the tale of the 6-year old boy who couldn't
resist cutting his father's precious cherry tree with his new hatchet.
When angrily confronted, little George replied, "I cannot tell a lie,
father, you know I cannot tell a lie! I did cut it with my little
hatchet.'' His father then told him that his courage to tell the truth
was more important than a thousand trees.
And I'm sure you've heard of "Honest Abe." Examples of Lincoln's
honesty are documented and legendary. As a young man working in a
country store, he would walk miles to return a few cents to a customer
if he had counted in error. Honesty and generosity remained in his
character throughout his career as an attorney and into his presidency.
Thus the theme for today's article...let's have a "reality check" and
talk about your lies.
your lies...but it's not what you're thinking...
Whose Reality Is
In the beginning of my Feel Free
I ask my students to explore and share their core
their core beliefs about their relationship to money and prosperity.
Now, this is a
REAL reality check - or we might call this a "prosperity" reality
So, let's say that
you have discovered your negative core belief
(or beliefs) about money and prosperity. Now what are we going to do
Well, first I am
going to tell you the major truth about those negative beliefs.
truth is...your beliefs are a LIE. A lie.
part is that as long as you keep
accepting those beliefs, they remain YOUR lie and color and predict
your reality, so in essence they become YOUR truth. What you believe to
be true. Your life and circumstances are played out according to your
(falsely) accepted truth. And your circumstances, the outer appearances
serve to further perpetuate this "truth" to further "prove" that it is
so. And the lie keeps feeding itself.
And then when you
attempt to consider the possibility
of abundance and success for yourself, it is then that you feel like
you are lying to yourself.
Well, I have news for you...those
beliefs that you have expressed are not at all related to the real you.
They are not who you are. They do not represent the talents, the
abilities, the qualities or the essence of the person that you are -
the REAL you.
negative false beliefs that you acquired
throughout your lifetime and that were instilled in your mind by
others, even when you were very young. You unconsciously made these
beliefs your own.
And the nature of
the subconscious mind is that it will
create and produce for you according to the ideas it has accepted as
The REAL you has access to
the creative forces of the Universe because you are an individualized
expression of Universal Mind, Infinite Intelligence, God. That
Intelligence gave you your talents and abilities and also gave you the
means to fulfill those talents and abilities.
you...Whose reality is it anyway?
How do you tune in
and become who you really are?
The first step to
victory is to recognize those false
beliefs for what they really are - the lie. They are NOT the truth
about you. They are the lie. The fact that you cannot attract money or
clients or success in business is a great big lie.
I would like to go
back in time here...
One of my early
students was owed quite a bit of money
from a former employer and they had refused to pay for over a year. Any
effort she made to collect failed. She met me and began prosperity work
and shortly after her second lesson, she was able to get a mediation
date in court. She went to court and the insurance company for the
employer adamantly refused to pay, although she carefully kept her cool
and focused her attention on prosperity thoughts as the attorneys and
judge interacted. The judge finally said he would take the ruling under
submission until the following week, but by all appearances the
employer's representatives were not budging.
She had to wait
this out until the following week and
insecurities started to set in. Her core belief was that she was meant
to struggle, that "winning" this would be too good to be true. She said
she kept hearing the inner voice telling her this.
Although I endorse
using only positive words in our
study and don't even like to use the word "lie", I found myself
spontaneously telling her that what she was hearing was that old
subconscious "tape" playing over and over and that she must recognize
it for what it was - IT WAS THE LIE! The truth was that she was a child
of the Universe and entitled to all of the supply and abundance that
she could have if she could keep her mind open to receive.
That did it for
her. Whenever those thoughts would
come, she would remind herself that that was the lie and she would
again become centered.
The story in her
own words, posted on the Feel Free to Prosper Network in its earlier
financial coaching groupies! I had a
productive week in regards to our lesson plans and tangible results.
Shall I say more ???!
When I saw
Marilyn's posting [announcing the FFTP
program], I just knew that it was the perfect pole vault to take me
over the top. It was just a gut feeling. I am moving into a new phase
of my career and Marilyn's insight and solid lesson plans were just the
right distraction to bring me to the next level. And thus far it's
succeeding. Without getting into too much mundane detail, I had a
leftover challenge from an employer of more than one year ago. They
owed me $$, refused to pay, and I was determined not to give back my
income to them by walking away because there was a clear right and
wrong issue here.
Well, after a
year, I finally got my "day in court" so
to speak (more of a mediation). What was exceptional is that I had just
gotten Marilyn's second lesson and had gone over half of it when this
happened. The day was long and arduous. Also exceptional was what I did
with my time. I relied heavily on my affirmations, then during long
periods of time when I was alone and the pressure was on, I developed a
meditation that was inspired by Marilyn and our Lesson Two. I focused
on an object and just really felt, thought and visualized that I was a
magnet for lots of money and that the magnetic energy that I was
putting out there was getting stronger and stronger. When I got
nervous, I would move back into that space of just concentrating on the
magnetic energy I was giving out. When negative thoughts would trickle
in, I would just tell myself that they are a "lie" because they are!
That was customized by Marilyn for me and was of enormous help.
days later, I found out that everything was settled and I got a big
chunk-o'money!! Now with that chapter behind me, I can clearly focus on
my career goals in terms of financial success. I can't wait for the
next lessons to unfold!
Thank you, Marilyn!
Now, here are some
more TRUTHS about YOUR negative beliefs and one or more of these may
apply to you:
1. You are
comfortable with them. After all, they are
familiar, aren't they - even if you weren't aware before of what they
exactly were, they have become "second nature", haven't they?
2. You might feel
you are stuck with these beliefs -
there is nothing you can do about it so that you might as well make the
best of it.
3. These beliefs
might provide the excuse or justification for not moving forward, even
4. You might feel
that if you just keep going along
like you are with these beliefs, that things will just get better
somehow and you might have some lucky breaks to get you where you want
None of the above
factors will produce money and
success for you. You must now make a conscious choice to be aware and
recognize your false beliefs for what they are - blatant false beliefs.
Lies that you no longer wish to apply to your life, that in no way
You must take the
upper hand and make a stand for what
you want to create in your life. It is a choice. It must no longer be
an unconscious choice. It must be a conscious choice and you must now
become the boss. You and only you must decide...to stop the lies.
reality is it anyway?
