The past several months have been all about transformation. You’ve walked through a transformation process that has been around since ancient times: Recognize, Unify, Realize, Give thanks, and Release.
Now I ask you to dig a bit deeper and get into what many transformational teachers refer to as “the gap”. In this case it is the “gap” between the way life shows up now versus the way you want it to show up.
It’s a metaphysical Universe. In the “Meta” or the mind of God you are the image maker. You work in conjunction with (in coherence with) the mind of God. You do this naturally because you have a conscious connection to the mind of God. Your brain is the instrument that connects you with “the Meta”. You do this with the frequency of your thoughts.
In “the gap”, trouble arises when you have an image of what you want life to look like but don’t know how to traverse “the gap” between the Meta (mind) and the physical (results). In this gap, the same old thinking just will not do. In order to arrive at where you want to be from where you are, you will need to generate NEW thinking.
It’s estimated that over 90% of your thoughts are not actually thoughts at all. Most of what you would call thinking is actually just brain activity that is mistaken for thinking. The brain is wired to repeat information in order to create neural-pathways that act like short cuts in your thinking and make it easy for you to perform every-day tasks. This is why when learning a new skill, you spend a lot of time concentrating your focus and acting with care, but eventually find that you are able to complete skills with expertise but very little thought. This is why old habits and old ways of thinking can be very comfortable to settle back into. It’s just automatic wiring.
When you are thinking exciting new and creative thoughts, you are in “Meta”, your creative access. It’s from this space that you’re generating in harmony with your own Essence: new ideas, images, and answers. You will know you are in harmony when you begin to feel a quickening. The central nervous system is wired to notify you when you are in harmony with your divine self; your real self. The nervous system is wired to notify you when you are out of harmony, when you start to feel contracted, constricted, anxious, worried, frustrated.
Marianne Williamson said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You’re playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
When you are in “the gap” and standing in awe of your own greatness, it’s easy to toy in these areas and play small because it can be frightening to catch a glimpse of really how powerful and creative you are.
Did you know that about 70 percent of people who win a lottery or get a big windfall actually end up broke in a few years, according to the National Endowment for Financial Education? “People who were little, ordinary people all of a sudden become extraordinary,” says Steve Lewit, CEO of Wealth Financial Group in Chicago. “They’re euphoric. They lose all sense of reality. They think they’re invincible and powerful. They think they’re Superman.”
Unfortunately, without a consciousness of Abundance, no matter what or how much you receive, it can’t stick around without a shift in thinking. Old thinking (I’m broke) creates old results (I’m broke).
You are your own self-fulfilling prophecy. Do you know people who always have bad luck? Maybe you see it in your own thinking? Maybe it seems like one thing after another is always “taking” your money or other things that are important to you. Maybe you feel like you can never get ahead.
When you find yourself stuck, consider asking the following questions:
“Am I procrastinating?”
“Am I allowing fear to prevent me from action?”
“Am I allowing doubt to sabotage me?”
“Am I thinking new vibrant thoughts or old comfortable thoughts?”
“Am I stuck in my comfort zone?”
If you said “yes” to one or more of the above questions, it’s OK! Good news! You are just in the gap! You’re in the right place – but you don’t have to stay there.
Here is an exercise to generate new creative thinking:
- Using a pencil and paper, choose three intentions that you would like for yourself in your life. These can be three goals you want to reach, three things you want to acquire, three things you want to experience – it’s completely up to you.
- Write down, the answer to this question: “What are the beliefs that someone who has these things already believes?”
So, what beliefs are necessary to attract a certain amount of money?
Get clear on what beliefs you have to start having and holding in order to be congruent with who you want to become.
- As you are writing out these beliefs, take notice of that voice inside of you that likes to argue about what you can’t have that you want. You don’t have to believe them just notice them. Write them down. These are very important clues to the thoughts that keep your consciousness in the lack mode. These are also called limiting beliefs.
- Write these limiting beliefs down.
- Now, begin to change your limiting beliefs to positive beliefs. Example: “I can’t make more money because I don’t have the proper education.” Instead write this positive statement: “I have all the knowledge I need to successfully make $100,000 a year.” “I’ll never be successful!” Think positive: “I am a successful in all my activities and endeavors.”
These “gap” experiences are a natural part of a transformation, but you don’t have to go it alone. Contact me today to schedule your free discovery session. I’ll stand with you while you traverse “the gap”!
