There is this phenomenon among many people who discover the way of doing things Energetically (aka Law of Attraction), and are backing away more from un-Productive brunt force action that have gotten them nowhere, up to the point of that discovery of LOA.
They begin on that magical path of applying the wisdom of Neville, and actually generating feelings of what it would actually be like, if they had in fact, had their offer for that dream house accepted by the owner.. or another highly-desired objective.
Or they successfully use their spare moments, such as waiting for an elevator, or stuck in traffic, to soak themselves in a 34 or 68-second long embracing of a feeling of deep appreciation, or of fulfillment that they now have the thing they’re seeking.
But when it comes to applying metaphysical principles to their pursuit of money creation, it can be so easy to fall back into placing so much importance onto the appearance of how something on the outside is looking to them
An example of this may look like:,
You have a podcast enthusiast who loves to listen to them, and then suddenly realizes, signs everywhere are pointing to how awesome it would be to start her own podcast. And this is not an artificially-inspired idea … she can’t stop thinking about it.. a perfect title of her podcast comes to her right away, and then she finds an amazing deal on Amazon for high quality audio equipment. It’s meant to be.
What happens next though, is typical among many people who get re-hypnotized to take direction from the “stale” external world around them. ( I say “stale”, because your existing circumstances are always a reflection of a past indulgence in feelings and actions from those feelings )
She reads blogs that talk about how much income you can make through possibly being an affiliate for some product that she can sell in commercial breaks.. or the lure of maybe getting obsessed around what major Podcast Network she can join if she produces “good enough content” for it. She’s being led by the “muggle” tail of putting too much stock into the external symbols.
However, in reality, she went from:
being more awake in her life ( by discovering the power of Deliberate Creation ),
right back to:
a more “asleep state” of letting the outside influence her internal decisions and spike false fears (of missing out)
… that excitement that grabbed her, and directed her toward starting a podcast, was originally only just there to get herself exposed for now,,,, in the world, so she was being heard ??
And what if, after just 8 episodes, there were some major audio book publishing company that heard her and loved her voice, and wanted to her to narrate books, and she ended up loving that??
Another possible way that Reality/Her Excitement may have taken her the podcast direction, was perhaps to meet someone else with that same interest she was pod-castting about, and then she teamed up with that person, in numerous and lucrative, and most importantly, joyful ways! And they co-created a web site, or co-authored books.
It’s crazy what can happen, if you stay centered in your bliss and take direction from that pure joy-inspired voice.
In one of my videos, as a sort of a light-hearted comment on my TV-watching, I displayed an image of the Machonne character from The Walking Dead.
( It was this video: Part 4 of Resurrection Summary )
Maybe I was trying to subtly defend my crazy TWD compulsion.
And sometimes I doubt the wisdom of my continual addiction to this show due to the ever-increasing shock value they are trying to deliver to their audience with each episode. The current season of TWD is more extreme in violence than a lot of other shows I’ve seen, including Sons of Anarchy ( motorcycle gangsters ), The Shield, and even Dexter.
However… I’m just stating the obvious.
The specific thing I wanted to mention was how sneakily, and perhaps accidentally, lack-thinking from the conversation in a dialogue scene, in a TV show can enter your subconscious without you really knowing.
I think it was an episode of Homeland that I was watching, where a couple of the CIA agents were having a conversation. I was kind of strung out with my adrenaline, waiting for the next exciting scene in this show.. where I’d see some martial arts from the young CIA guy… or Carrie’s hair-raising situation..
So I was only half-paying attention to the show.. while this conversation was happening in this calm scene.
But the thing is..
In this scene, they’re talking about the challenges of having to work, and really wanting to quit their CIA agent positions, but they can’t because of … money issues! And because these characters are the good guys, and you like them.. and you want to agree with everything they’re saying, because you want to them to win the fight against terrorists.. your brain could be taking in these real-life concepts of Lack in an insidious, kind of casual way that will leave their mark, in your real world via rewriting your beliefs in abundance.
So, it’s really easy for me to allow progress in my own abundance-mindset reprogramming, especially with Neville’s work, to start BACK-sliding. When your brain is kind of hypnotized, with that addiction-fueled anticipation of waiting for some action and violence, and you’re half-conscious as to what you’re absorbing in this dialogue that is going on front of you.. this stuff can soak in.
So all I’m saying is, be aware of what kind of beliefs about life in general, you could be letting yourself absorb if you’re half-awake and watching these shows.
One of these days, I’ll be one of those people who are proud to say: “The only time I watch TV, is when I throw in a DVD, because I have a date over.”
