Everything begins in the mental plane first before it manifests in the physical plane.
You think to yourself first, “I would like some ice cream,” then you get up and get yourself some ice cream. But it began in your mind with a thought. Each thought has a picture, sound, and color associated with it. Prolonged concentration on a thought eventually brings it into manifestation on the physical plane.
The longer you think about wanting an ice cream the stronger the thought-form becomes. As the thought-form becomes stronger, you start to speak it out loud. You may express this intention to someone by saying, “I feel like having some ice cream.” As you think more about this and, hence, put more energy into the thought-form, you will start to manifest it in the physical plane.
Now you will stand up and say, “I’m going to go and get myself some ice cream.”
So much of what is manifested in people’s lives is a result of them repeatedly thinking about the same thing, more often than always unknowingly, thus bringing it into manifestation.
Some years ago, I met a well-known influencer/author at a private dinner in New York City. I recognized who he was. He came up to me to introduce himself. After he had done so I shared my name with him. His immediate response was, “I’m really terrible at remembering names.” I thought to myself, “I’m sure you are. That’s what you affirm to yourself inwardly and outwardly.” You have become what you think and tell yourself. We are all guilty of this. I am too.
The key is to be observant of what we are thinking and stop ourselves from repeatedly thinking thoughts that are not aligned with the life we want to create for ourselves. To be observant, you must learn to concentrate.
Be careful of what you think and how much energy you put into those thoughts, lest they manifest in your life.
Ps. I wonder how many people will want to eat ice-cream after reading this email. I know I do.
Everybody and their dog has an opinion on meditation (including me). Most of these folks don’t meditate or have never been formally trained or even more so seriously committed to one meditation path. The latter truly is a telltale sign of how seriously one takes his or her meditation practice. Wh...Read More
I’m starting the year by writing a 3-part series on meditation with the goal of bringing some clarity around it and dispelling a few myths. First things, first. Let’s get clear on terminology. This is important because we want to train our subconscious to understand the specific meaning of a word...Read More
If I can accept myself for where I am in my evolution, then I can accept others for where they are in their evolution. As a Hindu and from personal experiences, I believe and subscribe to the concept of reincarnation. Simply said, reincarnation describes a belief that we are a soul living in a ph...Read More
Well, it has been a really long time since I’ve sent one of these emails out. Apologies for my hiatus. October and November were filled with events I spoke at in the US, across Europe and in India. My travels culminated with a retreat that I held in South India where I led a group…Read More
