The following piece is an excerpt from my book, “Word, From Your Mother,” a daily guidance journal written for my children, Liv and Pierce-Gabriel.
If you want to evolve as a human being:
- Focus on having a higher concept of self.
- Pay attention to self-talk.
- what you are manifesting
I read a recent interview with a favorite author of mine. As part of his daily meditation practice, he said that he pays close attention throughout the day to the negative chatter in his head. To resolve this, he suggests that you repeat the negative thought to yourself to recognize it but not judge it. He claims that this is the best way to dissolve negative thoughts. For example, if you hear yourself saying, “I am not good enough,” repeat with, “Thinking I’m not good enough.” Here, you can recognize it as only a thought and not a belief that would submit to the subconscious.
Remember, we often attract what we believe to be true. So, it is essential to focus our attention on the positive things in life. If you put aside all the concepts, perceptions, beliefs, obsessive thoughts, you’ll find that we are in a perfect place where rights and wrongs don’t exist. Rights and wrongs come from the ego. They are human-made. So is the concept of time. There is no past or future. There is only this “now” moment. If you think about it, the stuff that happened before this moment was the “now” of that moment. Life is a continuous stream.
Getting back to attention, it is our attention that creates worlds, according to my teachers. With concentration, awareness, and consciousness to whatever-it-may-be, we create concepts and circumstances that manifest into physical things, our tangible outcomes, and our effects. It pertains to everything we give our attention to.
You both have wondered why I don’t watch the news or anything violent. It is because I choose not to give my attention to it, as whatever locks into my consciousness also attaches to the collective consciousness, and it builds. It creates worlds! Why would I want to fuel attention toward anything of that nature? I don’t know about you, but I’m not particularly eager to contribute to that sort of mindset or that type of world. It doesn’t engender peace, kindness, empathy, or compassion. It draws us away from our inner sanctum, where all possibilities reside and awaken.
Part of self-evolution and developing a higher concept of self is to create your ideal self. You do this by transmuting your thoughts and aligning them with the desired outcome through your imagination, which is the “I AM” part of you or the divinity within. Your self-concept determines your outer or external situation. If you say/think, “I am unwell.” It will manifest. If you are unwell but imagine your ideal self as well, it will manifest. However, to do this, what you think and what you feel must be in alignment. The feeling of wellness must be committed to the subconscious. It would be best if you assumed the feeling of wellness as your ideal. Beliefs change matter.
