Back in October, my friend Julie and I went to a local arts and crafts fair – where we found the jewel I’ll share with you today. Chris Ferree is a Cherokee musician and NAMA nominated artist who’s studio is in Shelby, NC. I had been looking for some more native american flute music to mediate with because the flutes and drums raise your vibration.
Lo & behold — there’s Chris’ tent, playing his beautiful, relaxing music! He had several CDs for sale. Some were very relaxing, some were upbeat. All were beautifully done and perfect for meditation. You may hear his music as background music for future guided meditations I plan on doing for you guys. But I don’t want you to wait that long to benefit from Chris’ music! Click to visit CD Baby, where you can listen to samples and pick up one of his CD’s.
For upbeat music around the house, I play “Invocation”. It’s “influenced by Robert Mirabal, Bill Miller, and Mary Youngblood, among others. ‘Invocation’ is rooted in the traditional, while balancing on the edges of world and classical.” For relaxation & mediation, I play his compilation CD “Walk Between Worlds”. “This CD is filled with eclectic visual arrangements and signature flute that will carry the listener to another place and once there, you will want to stay for a while.” Yes, you will. An no matter which album you choose, you can’t go wrong. It’s like chocolate and bacon–it’s all good : )
For the inaugural post in my Meditation Monday series and working alongside my recent manifestation post, I couldn’t think of a better choice than Dr. Joe Gallenberger’s Abundance Waterfall and Liquid Luck meditations. I’ve listened to these on a regular basis for three years now and it’s still one of my favorites. Joe’s soothing voice combined with the Monroe Institute’s hemisync technology make it easy to relax and imagine a waterfall cascading over you, imbuing you with all the good things you want to bring into your life.
Joe has dedicated his life to studying the universal principles of manifestation. Dr. Gallenberger is a clinical psychologist with over 30 years experience as a therapist. He knew personally and worked closely with Robert Monroe (founder of the Monroe Institute). Joe co-developed the institute’s very successful MC2 (Manifestation and Creation Squared) program. In other words, this guy knows his manifestation stuff! Another cool fact about Joe is that he’s a local guy! Well, local to me, anyway. He’s based in Hendersonville, NC.
In addition to Abundance Waterfall, I also have Joe’s Liquid Luck meditation, which has been tested (IN VEGAS!!) with impressive results. I can honestly report, after listening to this for a time, I saw results. I was living on a 30 acre farm, where I walked the entire property at least twice a week for the four years I had lived there. I knew every inch of that place – or at least thought I did! In a nutshell, Liquid Luck trains you to recognize and attract patterns. One day, during our walk, I noticed a particular patch of clover. Now, this is a horse farm — there’s clover EVERYWHERE! Even though I casually look for four-leaf clovers on occasion, I’m not compelled to do it. There was something about THIS patch that compelled me to look.
This patch didn’t have just one or two four leaf clovers — oh no. This entire patch was four-leaf clovers! When it was all said and done, I picked 30 four-leaf clovers! Now, I had probably walked by this patch a hundred times that summer and never noticed them. Did Liquid Luck have anything to do with me recognizing my lucky four-leaf clovers this time? I can’t say with certainty but I don’t believe in coincidences like this, so I’d like to believe it did.
If you want to get more in-depth on the science and testing behind Dr. Gallenberger’s Liquid Luck and Inner Vegas series, podcaster Jim Harold did an excellent interview with him. Jim’s interview is actually how I found Dr. Gallenberger and so many other authors I’ve purchased from. Highly recommend Jim’s podcast and his Plus Club. Tons of value!
And I hope THIS article has provided you with tons of value as well! I’m already looking forward to posting next week’s Meditation Monday installment.
Words have power. Intention has power. YOU have power. You have the power to manifest whatever it is you desire through words and intention. Combined with right (read: good) intention and love, you can attract whatever you want.
First, let’s talk about what manifestation really IS. From an esoteric standpoint (and physics backs this up), everything at it’s particle level is comprised of energy. Energy is a frequency. Like radio waves are frequencies. X Rays are frequencies. We can’t see them, but they exist and they perform functions that result in a physical result such as hearing a radio station or seeing the image produced by the x-ray machine. The key to manifestation in the physical world is aligning your frequency with the frequency of what you wish to attract. And to be fully aware that you are ALWAYS manifesting through thought, whether you are aware of it or not.
That said, let’s talk about how that works. The universe in neutral. By that I mean, it does not see things as good or bad, negative or positive. It is a neutral, non-judgemental observer that assumes what you dwell on is what you want more of. When you bring something into being (via a thought, a wish, a desire), the universe says “HEY they must want more of THAT!” and it sends it to you. When you stress about <strong>not</strong> having enough money, you are putting out the energy of lacking money – and that’s what you get more of!
Taking a side trip here – fear is the worst emotion to sit with. Fear is a low-vibration false ego that makes you focus more on what you are afraid of and less on what you want to move toward manifesting. When you find yourself in a moment of panic, fear or worry – take a minute to just let it go and think about what you DO want. Imagine the outcome as if it’s already occurred. Do not let fear trap you! Get with the universe and co-create what you want!
We Are Co-Creators of Our Own Existence
We have free will and the universe work with our thoughts to send us what we dwell on. Have you ever told a little white lie that came true (like called in sick then actually got sick)? That’s you manifesting! You put that thought out there and the universe – in all it’s neutral glory – made it happen.
Adding a ritual to these thoughts brings that intention to life in the real world. A ritual is a physical act that can reinforce your thought, wish etc. Going through intentional (there’s that word again!) physical actions while focusing on a particular thought or outcome is a powerful manifestation tool. Here is a ritual to help you attract more of what you want.
Ritual to Attract What You Want:
Start from a place of gratitude. Give thanks for all the things that are going right and that you are thankful for. This mindset sends the universe a message that you want more of these good things.
Send love to all four winds – use the compass app on your smartphone to find south, west, north and east. Face each one and send love to that wind. You “send love” by stretching out your arms and simply saying “I send love to the South Wind” while projecting love to that direction. Repeat for the other three directions. You can also send love to Mother Earth and Great Spirit/God (whatever you call the higher power).
Create a representation of the item or outcome you seek. If it’s a house, find a picture of a house. If it’s a loving partner, find a picture that represents a happy, loving couple. A cautionary note on manifesting money: THE US DOLLAR IS BASED ON THE DEBT SYSTEM. Using dollar bills could represent debt, not income. Therefore, I recommend you focus on manifesting what you would use the money FOR vs money itself. So if it’s financial security, use images that represent being worry and debt-free. If it’s an exotic vacation for the family once a year, use images that reflect that. We’re going for the end result and we don’t want to limit the universe in how we get it (other than harming others to get it).
Light a candle. I prefer white, but it can be any color. Typically, green represents financial security, blue health and red love. I like white because (to me) it represents pure intentions.
Say 3 times: “I bring ___________________ into my life. I bring it now.”
Now, I modified this for my own use. I say “I bring _________________ into my life with the highest good of all involved. I bring it now.” I do this because I am powerful at manifestation and I don’t want to get a check for two million dollars if it means it’s an inheritance from one of my parents or siblings dying. Feel free to modify this ritual to fit your particular religious faith.
You can repeat this ritual as often as you like.
