First of all I would briefly want to introduce myself. I first started listening to Wayne Dyer a few years back... a time when I follow myself in the depths of despair. My life had officially hit rock bottom, drugs, women, partying, pretty much every hedonistic desire one could imagine. At the time I thought this was the path... my ego was out of control and told me to continue with the pleasures of the flesh, until I couldn't do it anymore I was on the verge of a mental breakdown. At the time I didn't know what I was doing, but I was asking for help. I would breakdown and cry and beg for help...for some answers. Seemily out of nowhere I met a fairly random guy that gave me his copy of "Sacred Self" and it changed my life. From that point on I was hook... started getting involved in Buddhism, meditation...Deepak Chopra I found myself completely overwhemeled by all the wonderful wisdom in this world.

I had written a lot fo bad programs... my thought patterns were very damaging.. oftentiimes I feel like I had started a few paces back.. but most importantly I have made huge strides in my spiritual development.

Regarding manisfesting... it has worked absolutely flawlessly in my life.. I have read many post on this board in which members seem to be getting frustrated due to lack of results. Just remember that how can you have frustration along with patience and trust...two key aspects of manifestation.

I have a question though... I truly believe what you think becomes your reality... but oftentimes when I work on my visualization and affirmations... self-doubt creeps in (surely due to all my negative programing in my life) and I start thinking the opposite of what I want to manifest... Almost like the ego wants to jepordize what I am trying to bring forth in my like. I'll be wishing of a long healthy relationship with my girlfriend... and oftentimes this loud nasty voice comes in and says " your not worthly, or it's never going to work, it's destine for failure" I have lived my life with much self-doubt...never have had much faith in myself.... I guess what I am trying to get to is this going to manifest? These ego voices that coome into play.. this loud emotional negative voice that tells me that Im not good enough and it's not going to happen? When I hear this I oftentime become fearful that this will then manifest in my life, and immediately try running from the ego...which then gives the whole situation even more emotion..thus making it more powerful.

In a nutshell... does your higher self know the difference between your true desires...and the voice of the negative ego-driven self? Am I planning seeds of negativity when they come forward...ever though I consiously am not thinking about them, nor trying to keep them around.

Ha, hopefully you can follow what I had said in the e-mail. Any/all feedback would be very much appreciated!

Thanks!

John

The importance of thoughts is to recognize them for what they are, thoughts. It appears that you realize they are negative thoughts but then you go further and listen to them. When you get these thoughts, accept them for what they are (your ego using what it has been taught) and then dismiss them knowing that the opposite of what they are telling you is true. Remember, you don't have to deserve the things you manifest. The universe does not judge you or what you want, it just knows to manifest what you think about. I realize you are asking that if you think these thoughts, will they manifest? Well, do not think about them long. As soon as you realize what they are, let them go. You must be mindful of the thoughts so you don't inadvertantly follow the bad ones for too long. Just go with the good thoughts and dismiss the negative ones. Blessings to you and remember that even if you do manifest "bad" things, it is all an experience and the "real" you is never in any danger.

Hey John

It’s all good

Sounds like you are in this very moment in the process of growth. Yes I believe that we are in the process of creating every moment of our lives “thoughts becoming reality” we also have a lot more power over this than we give ourselves credit for

First let me say that ego is to be embraced and loved, not something to be feared. As you walk in your spiritual life your ego will transcend to the place that you wish to be. The time that this will occur is when you decide to do it. One thing about lower emotions like “becoming fearful” is that we can choose the response to what we perceive as fear, example… the loss of future happiness with a loved one. All we really have is this moment, the “now” that you are experiencing. In the now you have complete power over, what I mean by power is your Authentic Power that stems from your spirit, or your internal universe which is a piece of the divine or source. All the other stuff is a learned response that you can begin to change at any given time. In fact the less you think and the more you be then change will occur on a more rapid rate

So lets say you have a fear full thought you choose to feel love at that point, love is expansive and is not only limited to one person, love is an energy that stems deep within and is inclusive of yourself and of your girlfriend but not limited to. Love is not a choice it is an energy that we can choose to tap into at any given time. Like right now for example. Be your own best friend, tell yourself things that are beautiful about yourself, find every moment engaging and refreshing and leave room in yourself only for the good stuff.

If that relationship would end today and you choose to love then this energy will expand and not diminish. With the love theme in mind when you love the lower energies that you are experiencing then they are transformed in the higher energies of love, kindness, abundance etc. This is the law of the universe

Anyway, this has worked and works for me as I write.

Love and Gratitude
