Hi Waizen. Uhm, to be honest, I don't have a 'favoured' technique... Considering I manifested the weekend in Munich as well as the first class flight from Europe to NY when I had no clue or not ever heard about LoA, I suppose the sense of an innate 'entitlement' (I can have more than what those around me tell me I can...! Just because...
), it was a process of what I would refer to as internalising my techniques... I work a lot with my dreams - always have. I can remember dreams from the time I was seven years old. Thus, visualising was almost second nature for me. It wasn't something I had to try very hard to be 'good' at.
I'm a linguist (English is only my 3rd foreign language) and I love playing with words, so that helps, too. I used to do a lot of translations (Fr, E, G, back & forth as part of my work), so I'm aware that clarity in terminology (i.e., how
you word your affirmation or intention) is crucial... As I said earlier, the devil is in the nuances....but more importantly, what are you un- and subconsciously connecting with a specific word?
What I mean to say with that is that there are certain words that resonate differently for you than they would for me (or anybody else reading this).
Language is very subtle on a more emotional
plane because it can be a 'trigger' (thus programming techniques such as NLP are controversial because they can completely 'programme' you in a specific fashion but turn you into a robot - if you are not aware what
the technique is 'creating' on a more subtle plane for you).
In mind control (which has been around for as long as humanity but has not been referred to as such up until recently, which was briefly touched upon and misinterpreted by Being-Godot or whatever their screen nick), these techniques are used as trauma-based mind control wording (MK-Ultra and Monarch are used to programme military, other 'service personnel' and most of the 'famous' musicians & performers in the US going back to the 'Wizard of Oz'), which is why this is an extremely difficult and complex subject onto itself but it explains at least to some
degree, why we attach certain meanings (as an example, a negative connotation with the word 'rich') to specific words because they're literally 'loaded' with heaviness and darkness. They can also trigger
bad memories (thus programming as it is used in mind control and largely in the music and film industry). Lady Gaga is a horribly effective example of this - she's a mind controlled puppet.
The reason why I mention this is that when we keep 'mantra-ing' away "I am rich" but on an unconscious level we associate rich with 'filthy, dirty, nasty, scum-bag', etc, etc., it becomes a proverbial contradiction in terms of how we truly feel
about 'being rich'.
It took me a long time to figure out my own language in using and applying my
terminology to word my affirmations where they resonate extremely strongly, very unmistakable and clear, feel powerful and
I work with Tarot as well (have done so on & off since the late 90s) to show me where my subconscious is at. A 'snap shot', if you like, to see: 'am I on the right track'? So, that's another tool I use and when a 'negative' card pops up, I look at it more closely to get to 'why did this show up now? What's up with that?' What do I need to resolve, to let go, to dissolve and turn around?
It forces me to slow down and basically sort out within a few hours what needs sorting out - where the block is (turning inward and 'scanning my feelings and digging until I come up with what is at the bottom of it') whereas in the past it would take weeks or months or years (
) to suss out why I was sabotaging my attempts. I prefer working very effectively (because, make no mistake, it is
) and bring things about within a short period of time and not have to hope and pray.
Next, I also have been meditating since I was a teenager (I'm Asian by birth but wasn't raised where I was born). I guess, one could allude that this made me more prone to turning 'East'... So, that in the process of doing so, I have learned to 'tune' into what they call the Akashic records (the band of all knowing that is accessible to all of us). I've done shamanic work in South America and Europe for some 6 years that, too, flows in (see reference above re nature and balance). This, in turn has opened my 3rd eye considerably, so that helps, too...
I've dabbled with LoA ever since I stumbled upon Louise Hay (the grandmother of new age development!
) but really got into this with Stuie (or Stuart) Wilde's books that just cracked me up, reading his adventures on creating abundance and prosperity while having fun (his best times are over but he was hilarious at the beginning). I've learned more from him than anyone else, including Abe-Hicks or Sanaya Roman. His book 'The Force' is still one of the most apt pointers as to how the universal energies work. So, all of the above is flowing into my process.
There are ways I have learned to 'address' my un- and subconscious in a semi-asleep state of consciousness that are just before you wake up or before you go to sleep. It's the most powerful way to completely eradicate these blocks (I mentioned above) because you're ego (mind) is not in the way - arguing with you and shouting you down.
I've got an enormous confirmation and boost in my ability to manifest what I want when, finally, last year, I was able to stop working and still have a regular income, covering my health insurance, too. And this is for my entire life. Not just a few years. In the meantime I'm working on improving my situation (hey, there's always
room for improvement, yes?
) I have no desire to go back to work because it's not part of my path in this physical incarnation. I know what I want and I have been able to bring it to me and I think the 'struggle' and the obstacles that you encounter, the setbacks, they teach you how to refine and fine-tune what it is you truly need
to work on, release, let go and also, transform into something that works for
you rather than against you. That momentum from the struggle gives you more oomph in the long-run.
To be free of any obligations to anyone
or anything is the biggest gift we can give ourselves because we allow ourselves to become who we truly, deep down feel we can
be but never have had the energy, the persistence, the stamina and 'being in it for the long-haul' that it takes to bring that about. My own testimony, and where I came from is proof of that. And I intend to continue. The negativity, the setbacks and the 'falling on your face', being ripped off (yep!), made me "pay attention to my intention" (I'm rhyming without chiming!
) and what energy and vibe I'm truly sending out.
Because it comes back down to your vibe, your energetic 'package' as a whole being, as an electro-'magnetic', or 'repellent' (as the case may be) force field
that simultaneously attracts as well as repels - and whatever is stronger will manifest. To think we just 'attract' is a 'misnomer' - it's lacking the other part (if you like the analogy of night and day, you get the idea - if it were constantly light you wouldn't be able to sleep at all and it would drive your crazy in the end - I'm not saying that being 'positive' all the time drives you crazy but it's not real, it's fake and has no substance or longevity and somewhere down the line it fades away into nothingness).
Stuie puts it beautifully in that he alludes that even if some aspects of your life are working 'just fine', somewhere else, (say, private/personal or health-wise, or business) if things aren't going as smoothly as you'd want them in every area of your life, something is 'out of whack' - or in another words: Your balance is off.
When you align and accept the negativity within yourself as polar opposite that is necessary
to be a wholesome being (we all have darkness and we all have our own demons even if the 'LoA' tries to ignore or even deny that), balanced, and aware
of their darkness, that part of you (the shadow) never gets the better of you (see, Maddoff, Corzine, Lehman Brothers' CEO Dick Fuld, Enron, and on and on) getting you into hairy situations all the positive affirmations in the world won't get you out of. Or the moolah you've skimmed from other people.
There, too, Stuie puts it very succinctly in that as an example, someone who amasses 'fortunes' in illicit ways ends up attracting the boomerang effect by virtue of his feeling on a very unconscious level, guilty about ripping people off (Maddoff again is a prime example of this, admitting himself that he wanted to be found out so he could just stop his charade and Ponzi scheme but didn't know how to get out of the mess he'd created). Universal Law is immutable and it applies to anybody, regardless as to how rich they may seem on the outside. The last few years have shown this on the material, physical plane. All the scandals and the people that are finally being called to 'justice' is the universal law in very obvious effect and 'manifestation'.
Oops, I've been rambling again! Oh dear
So, to get back to your question: it's a combination of techniques I've acquired and personalised over the years, fine-tuning them as I progressed and am still progressing...
Thank you for hanging in there and reading me.
