If you’d like to make your life brilliant…and who wouldn’t…I’m going to ask you to take a break from your usual habits.
I’m talking about the usual thought habits you have, the usual reactions you have and the usual and most likely unnoticed beliefs and assumptions you have. Those kind of habits.
And if you have a logic-based brain, I’m going to ask you to work at putting that aside, for now and let that creative you out for that blockbuster reality show that is lying in the wings waiting for some attention. Put away your rational mind and feel!
Making your life brilliant is sort of about manifesting, but it’s a deeper and dare I say a more spiritual, energy- connected way to go about it.
Much of what’s written about creating and manifesting misses a vital ingredient. And it is the most vital ingredient in your success as an operator of the creative process, one that matters a lot.
And in my latest book The Power of Consciousness I share how I accidentally stumbled upon consciousness at work in my life and how, through trial and error I put into practice deliberate ways to use this power that lies in every one of us. And I provide a blueprint for you to begin to build your knowledge of consciousness at work in your world, if you’re inclined for a bit of transformation in life too!
You can find the book here, and here’s some excerpts so you can start to harness this power to create your brilliant life.
Let’s get to it.
Excerpts from “The Missing Link – The Power of Consciousness”
“Know it or not. Like it or not. You are always in the process of creating something because your consciousness is always operating. Deliberately or not. Purposefully or not. And believe me, purposeful operation is a much better way to go.
You can’t make your creative powers work more purposefully without understanding a bit about the energy of feelings and emotions.
Wanting something, desiring something is merely a starting point and your
consciousness won’t respond with creating that life while you continue to simply
desire. If you ever want to be really good at manifesting and keeping the things
you want in life, you have to work with your consciousness in the way it was
created to operate. – Elle Sommer
You can visualize, picture in your mind, expect, and ask until the cows come home. But without emotionalizing all that you would like to be or to have, you might as well be twiddling your thumbs.
Feelings and emotions are the only way to reach your subconscious mind, and your subconscious is the creative aspect of you.
Your conscious mind can come up with the most brilliant ideas and dreams for your future but unless the subconscious is primed to create these ideas and dreams, it’s pretty tough for them to become part of your ‘real world’ experiences.
If you’re looking for the most powerful way to manifest a brilliant life, it’s not possible to do so unless you have all the basic pieces of the puzzle of consciousness.”
“I’ve separated the What from the How so you can get clear on the basic principles before jumping in to practicing various methods of using them. Which is why this book isn’t called Using the Power of Consciousness!
You must become one who knows how consciousness works, which means you become one who has conscious awareness.
Why is this so? Because we don’t get what we want – we actually get who we are. In other words, we can only get what we have in our consciousness.”
Who do you say you are?
“What’s in your consciousness? Who are you?
What beliefs do you have about yourself? What are your predominant moods? Are you like me, somewhat disorganized? What kind of stories do you tell yourself? Do your thoughts wander around willy-nilly? Are you a worrier? Do you find lots of things to complain about?
Every one of these ideas has a feeling attached to it. And those feelings determine what has been produced in your world.
Your world is a revelation reflector. It reveals you to you – what you have going on in your consciousness so you can change it if you want to.
Check your world today. Do you have lots of things you worry about? Are your actions and the results in your world all over the place? Do events happen on a regular basis that cause you to complain?”
The system that leads to a brilliant life
“The power of consciousness is a brilliant system, once we know of it and discover more about how it works, and how to practice making it work for us.
Your daily life is a mirror reflecting all that you have thought, imagined, and felt.
This is because the dynamic duo of the conscious and subconscious act in concert with one another. The conscious mind produces the thoughts and ideas which once emotionalized or felt are transformed into your experiences of life by the subconscious – it still seems magical to me.”
Why does the power of consciousness work?
“But how does the magic work? I don’t know, and I don’t particularly care. All the wondrous experiences that have been brought into my world through using the Power of Consciousness won’t disappear because I don’t know how it works.
And whether I understand it or not, I have learned for myself that my subconscious has no choice but to get to work to produce in my outer world of reality an image that correlates to my feelings.
Once I discovered and practiced using this concept, my deepest desire was to be able to use it consistently and effectively. So I began to look for signs of land. To see if I could connect the dots between my inner and outer worlds.”
What are signs of land you might be asking?
“Think of being at sea. It’s a boundless stretch of waves and water, until one day you notice a piece of flotsam in the water or a bird and you know for sure, even though you can’t yet see it, that there is land somewhere close by.
That’s what I did. I would practice seeing in my mind’s eye the thing I wanted to have or who I wanted to be, ask myself how it would feel if I had it, and then would look for signs of land – any sign, however small, that what I desired was on its way.
Someone might have called me unexpectedly and the conversation would turn to the very thing that had been on my mind. Or I came across something I hadn’t seen before online. Or I had a new idea, one I hadn’t thought of before. All signs of land that I was closer to my desire being born. Or at least within rowing distance!
All in line with the images and feelings I’d been focused on.
I bet you’ve seen signs of land in your life too but didn’t connect the dots back to your consciousness.”
“Pay attention to your feelings. They are the only medium through which you can reach your creative subconscious self in a way that it can reproduce those feelings in the outer world of your physical reality.
In short you use Creative Consciousness like this:
You have an idea, a desire to be experienced. Something you want to be or to have.
You pay attention to this idea and imagine what it would feel like to experience it.
It isn’t delivered to you as you sit in your chair imagining it! Sorry.
What does happen is that you will find yourself taking different actions than the ones you’ve taken before.
This is because you are in a new state of consciousness. And that new state stirs you into new and positive action towards your desires.
Your subconscious, working on your behalf supplies you with little prompts to act, and you supply the action.
That’s the nutshell version.”
“And if you fail, ask yourself, “How would I feel if something wonderful came out of this?” And remember it’s your emotional nature that affects your existence. It’s your emotional nature that governs your attitudes and your actions in your personal and business world.
Your feeling, emotional states are powerful forces that determine the quality of your life.
You are not just a dreamer in your life, you are the originator of your life. All the magic of the universe is waiting for you to remember who you are, and you have been given every tool to manifest a brilliant life.
You no longer need to be the one who lets struggles or challenges get you down. Don’t let others put you down, even if they mock what you believe or what you’re practicing. Inside you is the power of the universe. Value that. Value yourself.
The very secret of creation lies within you, first desiring and then assuming the feeling of your dream coming true.”
So there is your starter for using the power of consciousness in your life.
Putting it plainly and simply, you have been using the power of consciousness all your life, and the challenge is that it doesn’t matter if it’s used for something good, bad or indifferent. It just is. And this energy of yours is always galloping off to bring you the next request you put out, be it deliberate or not.
Maybe it’s time to write a new script for your conscious mind to operate from. Really go for it. It doesn’t need to be for something material, it can be for anything. You are the decider of what your brilliant life looks like, material, spiritual, or even greater personal connections.
Build a good life story, a well rounded life story and then you’re in a position to give what you’ve learned and experienced to others, so they too can build their brilliant life. Remember that giving is the other side of the coin to receiving. And we need both.
If you’re ready to learn how to become an active participant in creating a life that is beyond good, you can find the book here in both kindle and print form.
Encourage one another.
