Once we get, truly get, that it’s our subconscious that as a ‘centre of divine operation’ does the work in fulfilling all our desires. We can relax, right?
Apparently, not so much. Our mind is still busily trying to work out how to make those dreams come true. What if I did this. Oh, wait a minute, maybe I should do that? Nah, I tried that before and it didn’t work, what I really need to do is….noooooooooo. Stop.
Recently I posted a picture of the Stickman, to help see how our conscious and subconscious operate together, as partners.
And just to lay things out, honest and truthful like. In answer to that age old question what do I do next…absolutely nothing. Not that I’m suggesting you sit at home rocking in your chair, or lounging around all day with a drink in your hand. Although you might fancy doing both of those things…and honestly while you’re at it, if you’re visualizing your wonderful world, it probably would be helpful…just not all day, every day.
The thing to do is to go about your business in the usual way. Whatever you did before you decided on experiencing this new great and wonderful thing, keep on doing it. Because, let’s face it, if you currently knew what to do to get what you wanted, wouldn’t you already have it? You’re just not operating in that vibration of consciousness yet.
It all works in a much cooler way anyhoo. But first we have to disengage from that part of us that has to have all the answers now. Synchronicity begins to occur, because we’re allowing our subconscious to do it’s job and not ‘messing in the middle’ as my dearest friend Susan likes to call it.
Things begin to happen seemingly ‘by chance’, people that we never even heard of before show up to help move us towards the fulfillment of our desires. Joseph Campbell speaks of a thousand unseen helping hands coming to support us. And that’s our subconscious at work.
The big ‘secret’ is in not knowing how the heck we’re going to get to where we want to go. And allow that.
I have no idea how to fulfill my desire. Great.
That makes it easier for my little mind, I can relax and truly let go, because I don’t have a clue. So now the only way it can begin to get done, is by letting that inner power that resides in us all, do it’s work. And let’s face it, it’s much better at creation than you and I.
Case in point. One day I decided I wanted to increase the visibility of my blog. As you all know by now I’m so technically challenged that if you were to ask me anything, and I mean anything, about how this internet stuff works, I’d stammer and stutter and mumble my way through some answer that would make a six year old throw up their hands in disgust at my ignorance. Basically, I’m pretty useless.
Good. You have no clue how to do this. Check.
What’s next? Okay, let’s imagine it happened. How does that feel? Pretty great actually.
Good. You’ve connected to the feeling, you’ve united the mental picture with your feelings. Check.
Now what? Persist. Persist in what? In daily imagining, repeatedly seeing your happy outcome. Check.
And then what?
Maybe you’ll get a new brilliant idea (it has to be new or it isn’t from the new state of consciousness) maybe, someone will show up with their great ideas. Who knows.
In this case, I read something on someone’s blog about an internet class that really interested me. So I signed up for it, only to discover I was blooming useless, big surprise that.
But it didn’t matter, I was taken through each piece step by step, great hand holding all the way, by the most wonderful woman. And it turned out, she was the one who was going to work her magic to bring increased visibility to my blog. Who knew? I didn’t even know she was out there, until I made a choice for a new experience, and all manner of things moved to my aid.
I’ll tell you more about her in my next post, with a great giveaway for anyone interested.
Another experience of synchronicity or the creative consciousness at work in my life is Hawaii.
A few years ago we were the proud owners of a condo in Hawaii. And that came about because I saw a photo of a waterfall in a house magazine and it was in Hawaii. I loved the look of this place so I stuck it on my vision board. I’d never really had a hankering to visit Hawaii, but this photo resonated with me. I just liked to look at it.
Some months later, seemingly ‘out of the blue’…although we all know there is no such thing…we had the opportunity to fly off to Hawaii for a holiday. We had waterfalls at the back of us, and the ocean, with whales, in the front. Pretty perfect. Nice place to live, we said to each other.
It rained every night. A gentle soft rain and when we got back home, I would fall asleep listening to that soft gentle rain on my little bedside machine thingy, imagining us sleeping in that condo. For no reason other than it felt good. Remember feeling is the secret…so be careful what you’re feeling.
Long story short…we had a call from a neighbour in Hawaii…who was a realtor, telling us the place was for sale.
Woah. Now what? We had no clue how it could happen…after all we didn’t know anyone who was able to up and buy a place in Hawaii, let alone us. But I just kept falling asleep listening to that peaceful rain.
And as Joseph Campbell said a thousand unseen helping hands came to support us. It got done. It’s a very weird thing. When you don’t know how something is going to happen you sometimes can’t even work out quite how it did happen.
It just did. Synchronicity works in our world, if we let it.
And that’s the whole point…best not to know how something is going to get done and live in sublime confidence that our inner power is soooo much better at this creative stuff than we are.[success] Your turn.
