This podcast made me want to share something personal about myself that I think is meaningful and that goes well with this podcast.
About once a week if and when I'm in the mood I go into a light meditation. I use this meditation (which is basically just relaxing my body and mind) to get into touch with my greater source of creativity in order to solve problems or gain insight. You could say I'm getting in touch with my "higher self" if your into new age but I don't like labels. It does feels as if I'm making a connection with something outside my normal waking ego. When I'm the light trance I ask a question or just bring up a thought, then I quiet my mind and wait for some sort of insight. This is similar to what Steve talks about in his podcast about intuition but I didn't get the idea from him. When I receive the insight there is a slight tingling and depending on whether I'm focused or not I get an answer, sometimes its practical and common sense and other times profound.
A few days ago I did this meditation asking about intention manifestation. I had been trying intention manifestation casually with no results so I was interested in some insight.
Here was my answer (the answer comes more as impressions than words so this is a rough translation):
Successful manifestation of your desires is the default mode of your being. If you would only allow yourself to "be" there would not be the kind of struggle people have during their lifetimes. When you truly desire something your whole being is aligned with it, emotion, intellect, intuition, ability etc. Usually people have very little control over their thoughts and their true desires are buried under preconceived fears and limits. This clogs up your flow of energy (note: his words not mine) often creating emotional suffering or a lack of positive manifesting; almost unfailingly both. You must dig inside yourself to find what it is you truly desire. When you find it you will notice that you knew that answer all along and it should have been obvious. Once you do this and follow your desire faithfully and joyfully you will manifest with increasing ease.
That message entered my mind in a matter of seconds. I have been too caught up my routine to dig inside to find what it is I truly desire but I will soon lol.
