What Messages are you sending the Universe?

April 2007

Hi and Welcome to Issue #020 of Success Express!

Okay. You’ve heard the news – the secret is out. We all have immense power to attract what we want into our lives. So why doesn’t it always work? Have you tried your best to use your imagination to create positive shifts in your life, only to find that sometimes it works like magic, and at other times it seems to produce no effect at all?

Well join the club...I’ve devoted the best years of my life to educating myself on the power of the mind, and my life of manifesting is still a work in process!(arrrgh!!) But no matter how discouraged I get when things don’t go my way, I just can’t let go of the thought: “What if I could get this right ALL of the time???”

If you’ve ever felt like there is something blocking you from having what you want, then take a look at some of the common culprits below:

Am I Sending the Universe Mixed Messages?

Is one part of you wanting something, while another part of you resists having it? Is there an inner tug-of-war going on? Let’s say for example that you want to attract more clients to your business, but at the same time you’re soooo tired that you’re really happy when they cancel because it means you get to have some time off. Or maybe you would like to have a successful business, but you’re afraid that it would be too much responsibility, or that you might be setting yourself up to fail.

If you are sending internal mixed messages, you need to do some work on parts of you that are rivalling each other. Communicate with the parts of you that are reluctant to manifest what you want – usually those parts are trying to serve you in some way – to protect you from harm. Make an effort to learn as much as you can about those aspects of your personality. As you bring them out of the shadows and come to understand what their motivations are, you will begin to transform them. If you really want something, you need to make sure all the parts are working on the same team and towards the same goal.

Am I Too Attached to a Particular Outcome?

If you are feeling fearful, angry, frustrated or discouraged, then you are literally putting the brakes on what you are trying to manifest. When we hold on too tightly to a specific goal, these disempowering emotions become amplified — and this literally blocks us from receiving what we truly desire, and may even attract its opposite. If you find yourself obsessing and worrying about your goal instead of being excited and enjoying thinking about it, you’re attached. You’re also attached when you believe that in order to be happy, you must reach this goal.

If these signs are familiar to you, then it’s very important for you to practise releasing. Are you trying too hard to ‘make’ things happen? Sometimes you really do just need to sit back and do nothing – easier said than done, but the Universe is at work and has already set the wheels in motion to bring you what you want....only problem is, you’re not privy to what’s happening behind the scenes in the production line – never mind. Don’t get caught up in the ‘how' and the ‘when’ – that’s the Universe’s job. All YOU need to focus on is the ‘what’.

When you allow your mind to ONLY have positive thoughts towards what you want to bring into your life, you are telling the Universe that you are devoted to manifesting your dream. Cultivate a deep, positive, open connection with your desired outcome without being overly attached to it – this is one of the greatest hidden keys to manifesting it. Assume that your imagination is real! Focus on what you want through daily meditation, and then let it go. Trust that the Universe has things under control.

Am I Putting My Attention on What I DON'T Want?

Do you spend a lot of time dwelling on the things in your life that seem to be making you unhappy? Are you devoting mental energy to judging, criticizing, disliking, resisting, and resenting the way things are? Do you frequently compare yourself to others, who appear to have something you want? What you focus on expands. So if you focus on what’s lacking or not working in your life, you will continue to generate more of the same circumstances.

You cannot get what you want by fearing its opposite! Instead of dwelling on what you don’t want, spend more time imagining how it will feel to have the life that you desire. Train your mind to focus on whatever makes you feel joyful, appreciative, loving, peaceful, and hopeful. Decide right here and right now to believe that your goal is on its way. The more you can surrender to this feeling of trust and letting go, the more the Universe can help you. The Universe is on your side, so it IS safe to deepen this trust. When you trust the Universe, it will immediately manifest your desires.

Also, it’s really important to be flexible in the way the thing you want shows up in your life. So if you want to win $10,000.00 in the lottery, but instead the money comes to you via a surprise inheritance, don’t go thinking that you have not successfully manifested the money! We never have control over how the exact outcome of our goals will show up. So accept what is – and say thank you!

Make it easy on yourself....relax and trust that the Universe IS friendly. Claim your share, because if you don't then someone else will!

What IS that chatter in my Head?

Make no mistake – your mind IS your greatest asset! So having an untamed mind is going to really put the brakes on your goals and dreams. With a constantly chattering mind, life becomes this roller coaster of emotional experiences where ‘getting by’ is the only priority. Yes, of course it’s impossible to monitor every single thought that comes into your mind – there are way too many of them and they come in thick and fast. But what you CAN do is make conscious contact with The Universe through daily meditation, self-hypnosis and affirmations.

There is a higher power inside you right now, and it’s always available to you. Be open to this extremely ever-present intelligent Source that is everywhere you are. Make a special time each day to be still, quiet and connect with this higher conscious power. Many people say to me ‘Gee I’d love to find half an hour each day to meditate, but I just don’t have time – how do YOU afford the time??’...and I tell them: ‘I can’t afford NOT to do it!’

So it’s about making priorities in your life. If you make a sincere effort each day to get quiet and still, you will notice a marked improvement in your physical, emotional and spiritual life.
