This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Audrey, who appears to have some difficulty accepting The Council’s idea that what we believe creates the reality we experience. Audrey uses the example of the Earth being round instead of flat, which she appears to believe is an incontrovertible scientific fact. But interestingly The Council seems to suggest that when people believed the Earth was flat, their belief created a reality where the Earth was flat.
The Council says the Earth is made up of energy that is able to shift shapes with the thoughts we think about it. And they add that many people aren’t at the point where they believe this is possible. The Council says at one time the Earth was flat, but along came others who began to believe the Earth was round. And because of the strength of this belief they found a way to create proof of the Earth’s roundness.
At the time people thought the Earth was flat they also didn’t think the Earth revolved around the Sun, and The Council says these thoughts created that reality and the Earth didn’t rotate around the Sun at that time. As we grow and want to make life more interesting and challenging, our thoughts change, we reach for more, and we create more. The Council adds that how we perceive our universe will change again in the future.
The Council says science and facts depend on the beliefs of people. Once you accept a thought and it becomes part of your belief system, and more and more people accept that thought, your reality will change to create that thought and you will have that experience.
Audrey asks The Council how she can stop being so left-brained. And The Council recommends looking into topics that she doesn’t currently believe and ask herself if she’d like to experience this, and she will begin to create what she focuses on and desires.
Audrey says she wants to connect with spirit. And The Council reminds her she already is connected to spirit and she is spirit. She has only to ask her higher self for signs of who she truly is and how she can create. Let her higher self give her a sign that she’s the creator and she’s not just here mumbling through this life. And be open to how it comes. Her higher self will bring her what she asks for.
Audrey says she does many things like meditation and yoga, but she doesn’t seem to connect with spirit. The Council says these things are helpful, but the feeling of connection will come from within her. They recommend she picture within her heart a small flame, which is a small part of her as spirit. Watch this flame grow daily as she meditates on this. As the flame grows Audrey will become more aware of who she really is and she will feel more connected to the spirit she is.
The ideas in this post may be challenging at first, but listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Audrey and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
Feeling Your Desire
To raise your vibration
We ask you to have a thought,
Something that makes you happy.
See it in your future.
And if you can’t do that
We ask you to go back to a memory from your past:
Something that made you laugh;
Something that brought you joy.
As you stay in that memory
Your vibration increases.
The frequency of this vibration becomes faster,
And as you are in this state of joy
We then ask you to go into the thought,
Into the imagination of picturing what you want,
But then feel it.
After you have gotten to a state of happiness,
Then begin to feel what your desire is like.
What would it feel like to have it?
And that is what will help you manifest.
Excerpted from The Council’s opening comments to participants of a Manifesting Your Desires meeting on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in New York City.
(The Council’s opening comments lasted about five minutes and with the exception of a brief greeting, each statement seems to stand on its own as a thought for the day. Beginning July 25, 2011 we are publishing The Council’s opening comments during this session as eight individual thoughts for the day. This post is the last of the series.)
As spirit, you have greater freedom
Than you experience in your physical body.
As spirit, you can visit any person or place
Just by using your thoughts.
Three things to remember to have a happy day:
- Know that you are spirit in a physical body.
- You have the ability to fulfill all your desires.
- Keep reaching for a better-feeling thought.
Every cell in your body
Is listening to your thoughts.
Has a corresponding vibration.
Healing takes place
At the highest vibration,
Which is love.
The first step in creating:
Begin with your thoughts.
Change your thoughts and your feelings change.
Change you feelings and your vibration changes.
Thought by thought,
Feeling by feeling,
You build your future.
Dissolve the boundaries to your thinking;
You have unlimited choices.
Nothing in your life has power over you.
Nothing creates for you.
You are the Architect of your life.
A dozen negative thoughts don’t have the power of one positive thought.
Discover your potential.
Keep reaching for those better feeling thoughts.
