How many times have you renewed your commitment to one or more of the goals you resolved to achieve this year? Have you rebooted? In a meeting of one of my support groups a few weeks ago, while reporting on our mid-year progress, some of us simply giggled and tripped over the excuses. Need I bore you with them? Nah! You can use invisible ink to pen in yours.
It seemed so easy to create the perfect behavioral plan! We even joined in with others for support and mutual encouragement. Why did it not work?
Before we start beating ourselves up while trying to figure out how in the past, we got the car we dreamed, or went on the vacation we intended, it may be better to note that this time, while losing 15 lbs, attracting a new relationship, or a new job, or increasing our income were desirable resolutions, we were not really attuned to the energetic vibration of what we thought we wanted.
While willpower may have helped with our prior successes, the wish that prompts a resolution generally implies a commitment to achieve something we presently lack. Our perspective is one of going from a bad state to a better state. We start from a place of lack and tend to base our wishes on events/situations/things and behaviors we perceive will make us happier but with which we have no clear inner connection. Life happens and we find that our neatly described goals and milestones don’t seem to fit the new behaviors required within our already packed lifestyles. We also become impatient with our progress; because we did not lose the fifteen lbs., and we were not offered a new job. Doubts and fear of failure creep in and the inner critic goes to work hard against our most cherished intentions; yet…
“For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. “ Matthew 13:12
The biblical quote expresses that we can only attract more of what we believe that we already have. It sounds counter intuitive, but when we focus on what we lack and become impatient and think about the week that went by without losing an inch, in spite of all the diet and exercising we did, we simply create a vibrational field that energetically broadcasts impatience, failure and unhappiness. This is only compounded when what we want is what we think we want and not what we truly desire, causing us to become confused and feel that we have failed.
For our desires to become manifest, they must come from unspecified abundance and we must feel it and believe it. Repeated thoughts and feelings birth beliefs, and beliefs create the vibrational field we project and act from. As thoughts are changeable and exchangeable, we can always insert a new though and thus create a new feeling and new beliefs. It takes focused practice.
I invite you today to consider a practice I created and call Three High Fives. It is intended to harness the power of our mind to emit the new vibrations required to make our deepest desires manifest. For it you will need 5 things and three 5-minute sessions for 5 days in a row. The five items that will help you change your vibration are:
1. The Buddha of Infinite Light, the art in this post, which you can save & easily print,
2. A small garnet crystal you can purchase in any of the many jewelry making shops,
3. A pen,
4. A pocket notebook and
5. Special procedures for the three daily five-minute sessions.
The Buddha of Infinite Light, the first item on the list, was created to help viewers experience feeling abundance and the fullness that is within us as a birthright. In the presence of this painting, one is able to notice joy and laughter, as well as love and deep compassion toward oneself and others. The powerful rainbow depicting the full spectrum of light is the ultimate expression of infinite abundance. All the colors contained in the light are included. The rainbow bursts into the seven lavish colors from a carriage made of rose crystals and driven by crystal beings, careening about unfolding concentric spirals. The main engine of the carriage is a huge faceted crystal able to break the light into the magnificent rainbow. The happiness is contagious. The colors and the richness of the findings envelop us. We connect with the light and the love. We can visualize becoming the light by “jumping” onto the carriage and flying through the world, free at last of any wanting. We can experience the emotion of happiness with what we have; love, and who we are; Light. You will need this item for the practice of the last 5 minutes of the day.
Garnet is a stone that embodies the energy of prosperity, “helps cultivate a sense of physical security, safety and abundance and stimulates the base chakra and the heart, allowing for the manifestation of one’s heartfelt desires into the world. It helps alleviate worry, panic and fear and assist one in maintaining a sense of calm and grounded connection to the present”, writes Naisha Ahsian in her fabulous The Book of Stones. You will be using the garnet for the midday and end of the day practices.
The pen and notebook are part of the day end practices.
If you would like the special procedures for the entire practice and are committed to changing your perspective from lack to abundance by practicing for 5 minutes upon waking, five minutes in midday and 5 minutes before retiring, you can request it by clicking on Three High Fives; which will lead you to the Contact page on http://www.lidiascherart.com and in the message line type: “I am committed to 3 high fives to abundance” which I will quickly email to you.
On the third day of following this procedure, and “out of the blue”, a client got a job offer for more money and better working conditions, yet he hadn’t even searched for it. Now, that is a vibrational shift!!!
