What would you wish for?

Posted by sibbia on September 8, 2007

When a star is born
They possess a gift or two
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star as dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

If you had true power what would you do with it?  What would change? Who would benefit and how?  I’m very familiar with the idea that those responsible enough to be granted “true” power (not just the status money and position can grant you) are also able to realize it can seldom, if ever, be used to cater to individual whims and desires.  That mastery of self and a great love for others would be necessary to wield power effectively.

“If you want to lead the people, you must love the people.”

What would happen if everything you said or thought became truth?  This is a question that deserves to be pondered by anyone who consciously works with the Law of Attraction.  Some forget that all thoughts have energy, and all emotions draw situations — not just the ones we would like to matter at the moment.

The question came to me, as clear as someone’s voice, “Why should we help you?”  And my current desires came to mind… a new car, help with my children, help with the house, more money… and the answers to those thoughts flooded my mind as pictures:  my ability to walk, the car share service I use, my children’s health and vitality, those without a place to live, that all my major bills were paid and I have money in my pocket…

I was chastened and I could find no words to answer why I should be helped, or even considered.  All I thought I wanted felt meaningless and the desire fell away.  In that place of peace I found my answer to the question of why I should be helped.  I smiled and bravely spoke the words:

Because I want to help others.

“We’ll see,” came the reply.

The exchange was new to me and I have no words to even attempt to label it.  I’ve never believed I needed to prove myself worthy and while I’ve wondered alot recently about communication with angels and spirit guides, I know very little about the process, and what I read doesn’t help clear things up for me.

What I do know is that sense of peace and freedom from need hasn’t left me, and when I pulled up my reader to check my favorite blogs, I found myself visiting the Genie King and Genie Princess as they were just leaving Mighty Morgan’s space.

Genie King

Genie Princess

And I couldn’t ignore them as silly (but fun!) as the idea seemed to me.  I came back to the thought of what would I do if my words came true? So I closed my eyes and made a wish.  (see below)

Power of the Spoken Word

Posted by sibbia on August 8, 2007

Today I wanted to remind us all of the power of the spoken word.  I often advocate for the use of affirmations and different types of meditations as part of our daily practice — and I still consider this an extremely important part of our creating the success we desire in our lives. 

There is something, however, that has a much more lasting and continual effect, and that is the content and quality of our spoken word.  When it is said that you create your own reality, it is not simply through meditation and mental picturing — those are only techniques to firmly ingrain a set of beliefs in your awareness.  It is also, even primarily, through the words we choose to describe ourselves and our circumstances.

When we understand the power we have to create ourselves and the world around us, we become much careful in how we choose to speak.  Statements such as, “I’m no good at math”, “I’m always late”, “I never win anything” or “I have a terrible memory”, serve to create and sustain that very reality.

 But instead of writing further on the subject myself, I will direct you to an excellent set of posts written on the topic already. 

The first post covers the various ways we might be influenced and asks us to be aware of what thoughts and beliefs we are readily accepting into our awareness.  It was written by Mark of  The Naked Soul — an insightful and interesting blog that is not to be missed.

The second post deals directly with seeding your mind with the correct thoughts and beliefs through the conscious use of powerful words.  The post comes from the Million Dollar blog and lists 12 simple ways to empower your words and your life.  A site definitely worth subscribing to.

As always, seeing is believing and believing is achieving.  Seeing you enjoying a wonderful, happy and blessed day!

Writing to our success,

Effortless Meditation (Part 2 of 3)

Posted by sibbia on July 30, 2007

Today’s focus is focused daydreaming, or visualization.  This technique is often used specifically as a manifestation tool, and can be used both internally and externally.

External (Manifestation Meditation) — Many of us are familiar with this technique.  It involves holding a firm picture of something you want to achieve (or receive) in your life.  This is a time honored and powerful technique, for nothing is achieved in life without being able to imagine it so.  Yet some of us have not developed this imaging faculty or are so bogged down in the day to day that our thoughts are a reflection of our current experiences and lack the power and joy to motivate us to dream of something else.

For those of us in that situation, we will modify this technique slightly.  First, we create a short list of activities that we have enjoyed in the past, accomplishments we are proud of and/or just periods when we were very happy.  Next, create the same type of list but this time use situations, experiences and externals that have not happened yet.  Review the first list remembering as much detail as possible.  Recreate the same feeling you had in that situation.  Smile.  Picture it.  And transfer that same feeling as you read the list of things that have not happened yet.  Smile and imagine yourself in the new situation feeling as happy and alive as you have in the past or even more so! 

Doing this helps align yourself with the happy circumstances you are picturing and other such pleasing situations in general.  Some find it helpful to add pictures representing both things we enjoy and things we would like to experience.  This type of focused daydreaming can also be used with only the first list, as a way to redirect any negative thoughts/emotions that come your way.  Simply reading the list and remember the good things that have occurred in your life and the things that you enjoy in this world can immediately change your outlook, leaving you calmer and more positive.

Internal ((Re)Creation Meditation) — In this case, we are not trying to bring some external thing or circumstance into manifestation.  Instead, we are shaping and creating the person that we want ourselves to be.  A list and memories is also helpful with this technique, though not required.  The first list in this case consists of attributes we want ourselves to have.  While the second contains situations where we have failed to live up to our ideal.  Now instead of beating ourselves up over the times we’ve gotten angry, frustrated, worried, or in some other way temporarily lost our faith, we just relive the situation and this time behave in the manner we wanted to earlier. 

See yourself being calm in a situation that once caused you doubt or anger; being patient and relaxed at a time you normally would have been frustrated and impatient.  Use your affirmations and your mental pictures to create the person you want to be.  Immediately combat any negative thought with a positive statement or affirmation.  If the frantic thought comes to you that you’re going to be late, calmly respond that “God guides you to be in the right place at the right time” or “this is simply a lesson I needed to learn about focus, advanced preparation and/or time management.  I am thankful for the lesson and no longer concern myself with anything that is not within my direct control.”

Whatever the situation, learn to treat your thoughts and emotions as something outside yourself.  Let it be an internal conversation, one where you immediately correct or refuse to acknowledge any thought or feeling that does not lead to your own good, or the person you want to become.

 This internal technique, in part, is what’s meant by “being the change you want to see”.  Not only will it give you a chance to lead by example, becoming a calmer, happier, more peaceful, helpful person will lead to you seeing more of the same in your own life.

Words of Power

Posted by sibbia on June 26, 2007

How do you speak? What do you talk about?

Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right” — Henry Ford

I recently found myself in need of a book. It cost a good deal more than I wanted to spend and I fought to avoid the cost, checking both public and university libraries. As I did so, I complained to a friend about not being able to find it.

My words sound petulant to my ears now.

“It costs too much!”

“It’s not fair! Why doesn’t one of the libraries have it?”

I was strongly impressing the idea of lack and injustice in my mind. I made the statement that I could not afford to part with my money to buy a book.

We influence ourselves an the world around us with the energy and vibrations of our thoughts and words. It is these words and thoughts that bless or condemn us, and a recognition of our divinity cannot happen if we do not understand, and pay heed to, the power of our words and thoughts which underpin our beliefs.

Recognizing my mistake, I immediately made the affirmation:

There is no lack in the divine mind. I am able to purchase a book or anything else I need to be more successful. The purchase is an investment that will pay for itself many times over.

Repeating it several times, I went off to buy the book.

What do you tell yourself that you can’t have, cannot afford, can’t do?

Consider the author in the movie Stranger than Fiction who discovers that the words she pens actually come to pass. Imagine if everything you said or thought came true. Think of the consequences, both good and bad, for yourself and those around you.

And then treat your words as if they have such power.
