There are ways, methods-- to change our belief systems, communicate our true desires to the Universe-- to visualize and achieve our dreams. (There are also ways to create distress, negativity and illness in our lives, via negative thinking, fear, anger, inability to release/reject these things, and simply believing that the world is a negative place). These age old methods are at the heart of many religions, they have merely been forgotten. But they are tried and true and once you delve into these waters you will find millennia of information from many cultures, from generations of humankind who have used these methods and understood man/womans relationship to Creation and the spirituality of our existence. Unfortunately in our present day society it is often easier to create negativity, and most of us are taught this, rather than the Laws and Methods of Empowerment.
Herein lies the essence of this book, to offer methods, perspective, and exercises by which you may create your life and prove to yourself (if you dont know it already) that you create your world. These exercises and beliefs will hopefully follow you through your lives and be communicated to those around you, empowering you and helping you to create the life you truly desire to live. They are not the product of one man but are at the foundation of most of our planets religions, and have been used by countless people through the ages who have wanted to achieve a goal, whether it be happiness, peace, health, wealth or control over their lives. The principles in this book are offered without numerous anecdotes or pages of stories that say look, it worked for them, it will work for you. Rather you are invited to embrace these laws, methods and visualizations and through your own experience prove to yourself that they are indeed valid. It is only through your own experience that you can realize your place as co-creator of your world. There is a spirituality underlying these beliefs. In a way it is a new religion, or the most ancient of religions. These precepts are at the heart of all major religions-which through time have lost sight or abandoned them, both in the belief we are not up to the task of controlling our lives, by issues of societal control (mass conformity seems more controllable than having billions of unique individuals seeking and creating their own destinies), due to the awesome responsibility we must face for the lives we have created/are creating, and because we are trained that whatever happens is out of our control, which is therefore reflected and manifested in our worlds. What these homogenized religions have failed to realize, or forgotten, is that because we are ALL ONE and related-- if we all believed collectively that we are WORTHY and enlightened-- we would not need to embrace negativity, powerlessness, fear, war, hate or conflict. Those negative things would not be chosen and would be rejected, or the void created thereby would be filled with love. Acceptance and diversity would be embraced. Fear would be recognized as the tool for growth that it really is. Unconditional love for yourself and all others would negate the need for rules, we would all be looking out for ourselves and one another. For both personal and global reasons the beliefs contained in this book can effect a grand change.
The Universe Does Not Judge
There is an old saying, be careful what you ask for because you may get it. When asking the Universe for something be very specific. (We will discuss this more specifically in a later section). The Universe does not judge or differentiate between good or bad, right or wrong. It delivers based on your belief system, readiness and emotion. The Universe does not necessarily deliver what you hope or wish for, rather it reflects your desires, that which you believe you are ready for and worthy of, conveyed with emotion. If for instance you want to lose weight, make it clear you want to do so in a healthy way-or the universe may grant your desire by illness or loss of a limb--you may want to add to your prayers the phrase with harm to none. Or if you want to bring a special person (love interest) into your life dont hesitate to be as specific as possible, even to their personal and physical characteristics, or the Universe will grant you someone that does not fit your inner, real criteria. But even more important, you must be ready for such a person and feel worthy to ask the Universe for what you want. Psychologists have said that when one is truly ready for a thing, it puts in its appearance. If you are holding onto or pining over another relationship, the Universe will see you as someone holding onto another relationship and not ready for a new one. In other words you must believe you are, and be truly ready, for a new relationship in your life. If you are asking for a new relationship--and believing you are not ready for one--the Universe will perceive that you are someone asking for a new relationship and not being ready for one--and there you will remain. If you are a person who wants to loose weight but craves sweets--you will remain a person wanting to loose weight and craving sweets, in a self-created struggle. You must come to terms with your craving, eliminate it and visualize yourself with the body you want, releasing your craving (see later section on foods, regarding cravings). Again, the thing you deny yourself is the thing that you bring to yourself. Merely by making it a dominant part of your thought process it is being reflected in your life and shall remain as such until you are able to change your thought process, your belief system, or thought habits.
