Powerful Tools to align with Universal Energy
Powerful Tools to align with Universal Energy
My purpose is to give you practical tools which will help you to manage your life. You will find many ways to deal obstacles and problems, to live the life you want.
With each tool is a brief outline explaining how to use them.
These tools work. Don’t worry about how they work, just use them and watch your results over time.
The Incredible Power of Thought
The first important tool is the use of your thoughts. Whatever you hold in your mind and mostly think about, you will manifest, whether good or bad. Proverbs 23:7 says ‘as a man thinks so is he’. Job 3:25 shows the negative thinking when Job said: “For the thing, which I greatly feared, is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me”. He went on to lose everything he owned, including his children.
The more emotion that you put into your thinking, the greater effect it has. If you’re afraid of what may happen I strongly advise you to work on changing those negative thoughts into uplifting, positive and life-giving ones. You can do this by using the affirmations, and visualizations. Choose carefully the areas you want results, and work on one or two at time, to avoid confusion in the energy you are sending out.
Be specific with your requests. If you’re looking for a new relationship, think carefully about the qualities you would like that person to have. Make a list, and read the list out loud several times each day.
If it’s a new home that you would like, study the market and type of homes that attract you. Cut out pictures of your perfect house. Visualize the rooms and imagine living in that house. Visit show homes, and as you walk around the building send out positive energy.
Perhaps your problem is conflict in your family or workplace. Imagine harmony and peace, each time you are in the home or office. Send energy of toward them for their happiness and well-being. Speak out words of calm and peace.
Thank the Creator for your blessings, and hold the energy of gratitude.
Don’t give up too easily. These processes take time. Remember that for your desires to come into fruition, circumstances in other people’s lives have to change as well. Practice the tools many times a day. It’s not as difficult as it sounds. Get into the habit of checking your thoughts and bring them back to circumstance you want to create. Write down your affirmations, then look over them often, especially just before sleep.
Using Affirmations to re-program your Mind
The spoken word is powerful, so be careful what you say. Think before you speak, as you could be unleashing forces for both good and bad by those words. Make sure they are words that will move you closer to your dreams and not ones that could make harm you. Words spoken aloud, you can’t take back. Words spoken in anger can harm another person, even if you don’t mean them.
Affirmations are statements spoken aloud, with passion and conviction. Always use the present tense and say them using the “I” statement. Carefully word the phrases that you use. You will see from the ones used in this book how to word them. You can make your own, to suit your situation, and in line with what you want to manifest.
Affirmations should be accurate, but not limiting. Obviously, you would be foolish to use this phrase: “I will become a brain surgeon within six months.” A phrase like “I’m drawing my perfect job to me now,” is the affirmation you should aim for. The secret to moving universal energy is to say each affirmation strongly, with emotion and faith. Look through the examples in the following chapters and pick two or three and start saying them today. The results will amaze you!
Reprogramming with Visualization
Your mind and body can’t distinguish between what you strongly imagine and reality. This fact makes visualization a fantastic tool for you to use. With this tool you can reprogram hurtful memories, as well as program future events.
For this tool to be effective, you need a deep state of relaxation. When fully relaxed try to experience the emotions, colors, odors and sounds as vividly as possible.
Most successful athletes use this method to improve their future performances. They picture performing their sport in the peak way. They see themselves winning the race, jumping there highest and swimming their fastest time ever.
Throughout the book I’ve created visualizations for you to try yourself.
Writing a personal journal can be helpful in many ways. You can use it as a way of clarifying your thoughts, releasing the past and negative emotions. It’s a great source of inspiration when you use it to record life changes and list all that you’re grateful for.
Use to record your requests and answers you receive. When you are feeling low you simply look at your past entries to see how universal energy has worked for you in the past. You’ve changed circumstances in the past by your energy, so you can do so in the future.
When you record troubling thoughts of the past you can use your journal to re-frame the events and put them in perspective. Listing each emotion you have daily enables you to slowly change your negative attitudes to positive ones, by showing you the attitudes that you consistently hold. You can read them and release them to the God of the Universe, letting them go.
Decisions become easier for you when you write down your challenges and directions you can take to change them. As you write them ask for the universe for guidance, and within a short time the decision that’s best for you will manifest itself.
Hypnosis Changes Your Thinking
Hypnosis has been used for many years as a tool for reprogramming your subconscious mind. There are many good recordings available. Check out my website www.colourstory.com. I would encourage you to make your own, so you receive exactly the information that will do you the most good. The sound of your own voice can make the recording more effective for you.
It’s like self-talk, after all, that you use constantly, day and night. If the self-talk is carefully worded and listened to via a recording it change your thinking in a shorter time.
I have included some scripts within the next few chapters that you’ll find useful as a basis for making your own personalized script.
It’s easier than you may think to hypnotize yourself. After all, hypnosis is only allowing your subconscious mind to receive suggestions by quieting down your conscious mind. Simply relax and let go of the present, and allow sights and sounds to fade away.
It’s not a complicated, just similar to your state of mind just before you fall asleep. In the half awakening state your subconscious mind is open to accepting new suggestions.
Begin by making yourself comfortable. Lying down, supported by soft pillows in a dimly lit room is ideal. Focus your eyes on a spot across the room until you feel your eyelids begin to close. Repeat this several times, while breathing deeply and regularly. You should breathe slightly longer, than on the out breath. This allows your chest area and arms to relax naturally.
If you mind seems active cancel this by slowing repeating -relax. Don’t worry about whether you’ve achieved a hypnotic state or not, it doesn’t matter. Acting as if you are is all your subconscious mind needs.
After a few minutes of relaxation begin to say to yourself out loud in a soft gentle voice the messages that you wish to pass on to your subconscious mind. Make the words similar to the affirmations you would normally use. Make the words in the present and first person, worded in such a way that your conscious mind isn’t tempted to argue with them.
You can achieve a similar state by using the progressive relaxation technique. Do this by fixing your mind on each muscle group, then tightening and relaxing each muscle in turn.
For an even quicker technique use the time just before you fall to sleep or when you are in a half wakening state to repeat your suggestions to yourself.
Practice these self-hypnosis techniques often using short affirmations on one subject at a time. Preferably decide on one area of your life that you are trying to improve and use the suitable affirmations for perhaps a couple of weeks before moving on to a different subject. This will give your subconscious mind time to assimilate the message and act on it.
Using Thought Anchors to Change Your Behavior
Thought anchors are a physical way of reminding yourself to think in a particular way. For example, if you have to talk publicly, you may want an anchor to help you to relax and have confidence.
You do this by putting together the middle fingertip and thumb on both hands, pressing them together. As you press the fingertips together firmly, you say out loud and with feeling “I am relaxed and speak out confidently and with passion”. At the same time imagine standing in front of your audience, giving an excellent presentation.
You need to do this a few times in a relaxed posture until your brain has anchored these thoughts and feelings to the physical action of pressing the fingertips together. When it’s time to speak, press the fingers together, and your brain will bring back the same feelings. You will find you can speak out with confidence.
You can use thought anchors in many circumstances. For example, if you’re addicted to chocolate, and want to lose weight, imagine yourself as slim. Use words such as ‘I don’t need to eat right away’ and ‘I always choose food that nourishes my body’. The possibilities are endless and I give further ideas in the following chapters.
Your Super-conscious mind and the Universe
All matter consists of electrically charged particles. Energy connects everything. Which means one thought can influence energy through electrical charges. The thought can repel or attract. Scientists have been able to detect faint radiation and radio waves which have originated millions of light-years away in space. All this energy mixes with your energy, and all the minds alive.
Scientists don’t know exactly how all this radiation affects you, but the electrical energy produced by the brain is small. Therefore it only takes small amounts of electrical charges to influence it. You can use this, by training your mind to relax, allowing these influences to work. The mind is amazing, and we understand little of how it works, but we do know the superconscious and the subconscious work together. By reducing conscious thoughts, you allow you mind to work on the problem presented. This enables you to solve vexing problems.
Angels and Spirit Guides
You can use the name angels and spirit guides, interchangeably. They are otherworldly beings that have your interests at heart. The Bible mentions Angels more than two hundred times. They’re powerful, and you will have heard many stories of their deeds. These spirit energies have warned people not to go to a particular place, and averted a disaster. Angels sometimes appear as supernatural beings, sometimes as mortal men, and can work invisibly.
Those supernatural beings want to help you, and you can ask them for help. Ask them for protection, for you and loved ones.
Creating Safe Havens – Sanctuaries
Sanctuaries are quiet, peaceful and comfortable places where you can relax, get away from the noise of everyday living, and allow your mind to work undisturbed on positive information.
Ideally, a sanctuary should be home, a place where you can feel safe and secure, and where you control access. When you’re decorating your home and buying furniture, think about the affect they will have. Is your house quiet, is it light and uplifting? Are the colors peaceful and the furnishings comfortable? Create a corner of your home where you can be at peace, taking special care the area is reflective of your inner spirit.
If you can’t physically create a sanctuary, it’s possible, with practice, to create a mental sanctuary in your own mind. This will give you a place of peace, you can retreat to, when you feel the need.
Using your imagination, you can build and create the sanctuary in stages. First relax, close your eyes and begin to build in your imagination. Create an entrance to your sanctuary, a doorway or maybe a marble stairway. Your special place could be a house, room, or forest glade. Then imagine a couch or soft bed of feathers. I think you get the idea! Take as many sessions to build your sanctuary exactly as you want it. Remember you can always make changes or a new one. The only limit is your imagination. Happy building!
Meditation is taking time to ponder, think deeply, and concentrate the mind. Focusing the mind takes practice, so all outside interference is blocked.
Meditation helps you to center and quiet your mind. It can help you find answers and direction for your life. When your mind is quiet you access not only your subconscious, but universal knowledge. The subconscious and superconscious minds can work in peace, allowing new thoughts to surface.
Meditation offers you serenity and relaxation, a time-out from the stresses of modern day life, allowing your body and mind time to repair.
There are many simple methods of meditation, such as watching your breath. I describe several methods later. Try more them, and find the method that works best for you.
The best learning techniques use multiple reinforcement. You learn visually, by doing, by adding to what you already know. Knowledge sticks when the facts are relevant to you at the time. This tool and the following one use both visual and action techniques to help to concentrate the mind. Visual inspiration is a powerful technique. One-way to use visual stimulus is to program your subconscious mind, using a chart.
Use this technique for problem solving, deciding, and programming your subconscious mind. Use chart building to work on your goals and wishes. For instance, you may want a lovely home, new job, car or new partner. Search magazines, newspapers or books for pictures that show your ideal needs. Paste the images on your chart, and put it in plain sight. Each time you pass the chart study the pictures and bring them to life in your imagination. In your mind brighten the colors, smell the new leather, and imagine sounds or voices that bring your vividly to mind.
For problem solving, use the chart to detail the information you have, and then write down the possible solutions. As time passes your subconscious mind will work to produce a solution.
Effective List Making
This is a visual tool. Use lists in the same way as the chart, using columns instead of images.
For problem solving, use one column for all known details of the problem. Then start new columns for the steps needed for each of the solutions you know about at the moment. Writing, frees your mind so you don’t have to hold the problem in your head, freeing you to think of solutions. As with the chart, leave it in some prominent place where you can see it easily, and ensure that you look at it several times each day.
As your subconscious mind absorbs the list information, it will gradually work, to produce solutions. In a short time you will have at least one, possibly several, solutions which were previously not available.
You use the lists to work on your goals and desires. Detail all the information you have. As you think of further information, add to the list.
Lists are useful as a basis for prayer, affirmations and visualizations. Read through your list several times a day, and always before sleep. Your subconscious will work on a solution during the night.
Dream directing is simply using the time immediately before sleep to think program your mind. You do this anyway, unconsciously, by thinking of your worries as you fall asleep, resulting in a restless night, and sometimes nightmares.
Directing your dreams, orders your mind to the positive as you sleep, and is easier than you may think. You direct your thoughts naturally, but if not you can learn the technique. It’s a useful tool to master, and can provide answers, and heal past hurts. You can use this tool to have fun trying out new scenarios, such as skiing or deep-sea diving. The tool also improves sleep quality.
As you fall to sleep, direct your mind to think of a question you want answered. Direct your mind to provide answers or life direction. Start the dream consciously, put yourself in the place and imagine the people. Then feel the emotions that you want to experience. Even as you begin to fall asleep you will find that can focus on the picture you have chosen. If the image drifts, gently bring your mind back. As you practice, the easier it gets.
During the following chapters I have suggested directions that you may like to take in your dreams that can heal and help solve life’s challenges.
The Movie Studio of Your Mind
Mental movies are fun and give you the opportunity to experience life in ways that you wouldn’t or couldn’t in the physical realm. Remember that because your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference, what you think about, meditate on or dream about, a mental movie can appear real. Especially when you ramp up your emotions, sense of smell, hearing and colors.
Begin by relaxing in a comfortable armchair, with your eyes closed. Relax, watch your breathing, and unwind. When you feel tranquil, imagine you’re sitting in a cinema, looking at the large screen. Now begin your mental movie. Just as you lose yourself in a good film at the cinema, it’s possible to do the same in your own imaginary movie.
I love ice-skating. In my mind I see myself on the screen, dressed in a beautiful skating costume, with my chosen music playing. I can effortlessly perform axles and pirouettes, and glide over the ice as if I’m flying. Ten minutes in my own private world, and I feel a sense of joy and freedom, all from my armchair at home.
Use this technique for problem solving and for focusing your mind on your goals and wishes.
You’ll find many more ideas in the rest of this book to excite your imagination, help you to control your mind, and suggest ways that will prosper you.
You will have experienced a hunch, or flash of knowledge or inner knowing. This is intuition. Hunches trigger naturally, but you can develop them further.
These senses can detect minute changes in air pressure, aromas which are so diluted to be undetectable, tiny changes in light. So your hunch can be initiated by your physical senses, as they sense something in your surroundings. Sometimes, memories of an experience, or maybe a fleeting expression that crosses the face of a stranger that you have just met.
You may decide that you don’t like someone, or that they are lying to you, by unconsciously picking up on something that alerts you to their true nature. Paying attention to this quick insight, developing and honing this gift, can help you in many future circumstances.
Intuition is also spiritual. Your inner essence, your soul, is sensitive to atmospheres which are not detectable physically. Other people’s spirits can be sensed by your spirit, connecting you to the real essence of the person. This information arrives in the form of a gut feeling, or inner knowing, or ideas which come into your mind autonomously.
The information could be a symbol, image, or a straightforward sign. Such as an inner voice that says, don’t go or do that. Dreams can reveal hidden circumstances. You know that it’s your intuition when you know facts that intellectually you couldn’t know.
The way to develop and use your natural intuitive ability is to begin by noticing feelings and hunches that come to you throughout the day. Notice those hunches than act on them. As time goes you will see if intuitive messages prove true. Then begin to trust them for more important decisions or knowledge.
Ask yourself questions, which your subconscious mind will work on, and expect an answer. If you’re unsure ask for confirmation in the form of further questions. When you meet new people or a new situation, be aware of your feelings and thoughts. Ask for universal direction and then note when you receive an inexplicable knowing that feels right to you.
Keep notes of guidance received and see if a theme or general direction arises. In your journal make notes when you have followed your intuition and record how the circumstance turned out. In time you will gain confidence and be able to use this useful tool.
Gaining Fore knowledge
Foreknowledge is tenuous. I am not saying that you can predict the future, or know the lottery numbers, but you do sometimes receive foreknowledge. Universal energy works within you to help, guide and teach. Not only can you receive knowledge of future events, but in some circumstances, you receive knowledge of present and past events.
You access this knowledge through prayer, asking for guidance from the supernatural, such as the Creator, spirit guides, or otherworldly beings. Information comes several ways, the still, small voice that you hear in your mind. Sometimes you receive an inner knowing, that’s not your voice or thoughts. You may experience a waking or sleeping vision, especially when meditating.
Prayer should be a natural part of your life, and the basis of your connection with God, or Universal Spirit. Pray for revelation and knowledge, then wait with expectation and faith for your answer.
These practical tools can transform your life, your finances, relationships, and health, by aligning your life, with universal energy. As you use them you will start experience joy, happiness and prosperity that is your birthright. Your energy will increase as you stop fighting against life’s natural flow.
