Lesson 15 Manifesting Your Life Purpose (Part II)
Once we have addressed where our old belief patterns are interfering with the ability to manifest everything that we need in our lives, we can look at the Universal Laws of Prosperity to assist us in this process.
Forgiveness is one of the universal laws of prosperity: Our words have the power to forgive.
Imagine holding a box. There is only a certain amount of space in a box and you are placing angers and hurts in the box by hanging on to them. You are not leaving room for the good stuff by doing this and you are contaminating a lot of the good stuff that does come to your box.
Why do we hold on to old hurts? – often we are afraid of change, or we get attention for “poor me”, or if we see ourselves as a victim we make someone else responsible for our circumstances, and sometimes we hold on to hurts to punish ourselves.
What are ways in which we can release hurts, anger, etc.? Name it — write it — release it — burn it — rephrase it. Do what we need to do, then release it and go have some fun.
Forgiveness is what allows us to love ourselves. If we could see ourselves as a loving and forgiving person, wouldn’t we love ourselves even more? We need to let ourselves off the hook. How would you treat a child who said something judgmental or unkind? We need to treat ourselves the same way. Being human is not an easy job. To go from light-beings into this body is a tough adjustment.
Having an Attitude of Gratitude is another law – we need to have this in our giving, receiving, and forgiveness. Why is this attitude so important?
- What you put out into the world is what you get back.
- An attitude of gratitude will attract more good.
- It keeps your focus on the good you have – and away from complaining.
“There is overwhelming evidence supporting the premise that success comes rather from certain mental traits known as attitudes than from any other single factor (outweighing even education, money, appearances or skill). Attitudes are the result of the choices we make – the decisions about what we believe or disbelieve, with respect to our lives. Clearly – the achiever is not born. He or she is made.” – From “What Makes the Great Great” Dennis P. Kimbro, Ph.D.
It is hard to be depressed, when we are thankful and being grateful for the things we are given. This sends a message to the Universe that we want more of this.
The Law of Giving (can also be called the Law of Giving and Receiving). The universe operates through dynamic exchange. Giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.
“The universe operates through dynamic exchange. Stopping the circulation of energy is like stopping the flow of your blood. When blood stops, it begins to clot, to coagulate, to stagnate. That is why we must give and receive in order to keep love, wealth and affluence – or anything we want in life — circulating in your life.” Deepak Chopra – The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.
We must be able to do both – give and receive – (breathe in and breathe out –what goes up must come down – etc.) The more you give, the more you will receive because you will keep the abundance of the universe circulating in your life.
As you give to the world in consciousness, you shall receive the same experience in return. Or, as you believe, so you shall experience the universe. Or you will experience the universe, according to your faith.
Setting Specific Goals is also a Universal Law: We need to let the Universe know what it is that we want – be precise. “Ask and you shall receive.” When you walk into a restaurant, you ask the waiter for exactly what you would like. The Universe waits for us to ask for what it is that we would like. Write down goals – set the date by which you want it to happen – Take one small step toward this goal to let the Universe know you really want this.
Be willing to take risks. Your prayers may be answered by asking you to do something outside of your comfort zone. You must let go of the “how”. When we hang on to the “how”, we limit the way the universe can bring us our good. We send a message that we are not really ready to receive what we ask for.
Spend some time with these laws and practice using them. Combined with creating new belief systems, these Laws are very powerful!! Use them wisely.
