Developing a Practice of “ Mindfulness” a way of thinking, being and living
Rationale for a practice in Mindfulness: We live in a society where people largely accept and maintain a focus on an external reality that is independent of the perceiver.
And we constantly choose outer distractions which keep us focused on a superficial external existence and often prevent us from searching inward to discover our intuitive nature and the potential for a richer, fuller life experience.
Dependence and focus on an independent external world leads to living in a constant, reactionary mode Creating: feelings of limitation waiting (sometimes in fear), expecting that things will happen to you, helplessness fighting to maintain stability, consistency and predictability
Embracing a concept that external reality owes its very existence to the conscious power of the perceiver Creates… feelings of boundless freedom confidence in self-reliance, empowerment embracing change and evolution, harnessing one’s creative potential

The Universal Law of Attraction The law of attraction states that everything that comes into your life you are literally attracting by virtue of the images and thoughts you hold in your mind. Whatever you’re thinking is what becomes manifest in the external world. The law of attraction is a law of nature. It is as impartial as the law of gravity.
“ We are conscious energy.” “ We are created in God’s Divine image.” We are Divine creatures, autonomous and powerful creators in the Universe. Our creative power is emitted out into the universe through our magnetic thoughts. We attract what we conceive in our minds, and our thoughts become our experiences.
Therein lies a potential problem: The law of attraction is obedient. What you hold in constant focus in your mind is what is summoned into your life. So you may get what you don’t desire if that is what occupies your mind.
Here’s how the law of attraction interprets your negative obsessions: “ I absolutely can’t be late” to “I can be late” “ I don’t want to get sick” to “I want to be sick” “ I can’t handle all this work” to “I can handle more work so bring it on” “ I hate to be taken advantage of” to “Go ahead. Use and abuse me” The law of attraction delivers exactly what you anxiously focus your attention on! It doesn't prefer your desires over your fears.
Excitement Joy Contentment Empowerment Hope Gratitude Love Respect Trust Depression Anger Resentment Victimization Fear Jealousy Hate Shame Doubt Which emotions make us feel free and enlightened? Which do you choose?
Thoughts and emotions are energy, and they have measurable frequencies in the brain. Hate, fear and shame have extremely low frequencies, are restrictive & narrow one’s perception. Love has the highest frequency & always involves freedom & greater understanding.
The greater the love you feel and release and the greater your belief in your mind’s ability to manifest your experience and in your body’s power to heal, then the greater creative power you harness. The combination of passionate thought and love creates the indisputable success of the law of attraction for everyone.
However, the opposite also applies. The combination of passionate thought and HATE creates absolute success of the law of attraction often at the expense of potential receivers of one’s malevolent actions. And consider what determines any potential receiver of such injury or destruction
Do you believe or fear in an “accidental” world that is random and often full of peril, sadness and sorrow or perhaps in living that is a constant struggle which must be paid for through suffering? And so it must be as you conceive it.
Or do you believe and trust that life is a personally meaningful and beautiful existence where all experience has the potential to teach and enlighten and that living is a blessed evolution of the soul? And so it must be as you conceive it.
“ What you resist persists.” Carl Jung Only a shift in your awareness can stop the persistence of negative experiences you have manifested up until now. However, you must consciously change your thoughts to welcome in your positive desires.
