Can I be doing more?

I have been focusing on ideas such as creative visualization, "contemplating myself surrounded by the conditions I want to produce", mirror work, yoga, etc. My goal has been financial and intellectual abundance. I have done a ton of reading, sign up for classes and otherwise "put myself out to the universe". To date, I have not felt a deep, strong connection to one opportunity or another, so I do more research and more research. My question is is there more I can be doing in order to find that opportunity? I visualize the outcome, but have yet to find the vehicle to get me there.

Howdy,

A suggestion Skip the research and move into massive action.

Deny yourself the payoff you get by researching further.

There was a time when I stopped my life to absorb over 800 books on self improvement... and then one day in 1992, I found that I was absorbed in massive action towards my goals that I no longer had time to read hundreds of books on self improvement.

A decade later, I still like to sharpen the stone by staying up on what's new, but I think a good balance to strive for is 95% action and 5% reading to "sharpen your stone."

Perhaps you'll find a stronger connection to that which you want when you can no longer think about it because you are so busy "acting" on what you know you must do with your life.

Best wishes on this journey...

Hi Cejamaq,

The more you can be doing is as Chris says... we can read books, listen to tapes/CDs, go to seminars... and this in essence is our focus..
When you focus on the "doing" of what you want in your life.. include the service to others and community.... then the opportunities will appear in places you least expect...

Continue putting yourself out to the universe... I actually speak outloud into the "field of intention"..... on a daily basis... sometimes hourly... but all the while continuing in the direction that "feels" right and good... one can always change direction when an opportunity arises...

I have found recently that Waynes input on "self respect" being the most powerful change for me.... I have been able to manifest much on the physical level since beginning these studies... but was up against a wall in being able to manifest a long term loving relationship... When I came to realize that my "self respect" was blocking that flow... only when I can fully love myself... will someone else be attracted for the right reasons..
Make sure that you love yourself... that you respect where you are in this cosmic connection... that you are not beating yourself up for something that you perceive negative about yourself.... Look in the mirror... and say... "I Love Me".... once the relationship with yourself is strong and respectful... many things will become abundantly clear...

May your journey produce peace and prosperity for you and your family.

I think that anything you feel intuitively good, comfortable with, and it concerns a decision, you should consider it further and go from there. If it's not what you want at least you are proceeding with action, not simply contemplation

Ive been in the same position as you when it comes to reading. For me, if you feel that reading is bogging me down some, i just put it down for a day or two and get on with living. I'm learning that this process is an evolution and it will take some. I guess growth does.

It appears that we have all been here and experience the frustration of "nothing is happening." I just read the following in Marianne Williamson's new book "The Gift of Change" which I highly recommend to anyone. It is and was a message I was suppose to read

"Let's say God has given you a tremedous gift - one you feel could be very helpful right now in the transformatin of the world. Yet you don't have access to the people or circumstances that could pave the way for you to express that gift. God can arrange all kinds of things, but He will not determine your choices for you. If you do not choose to deal the the personal issues that keep you from expressing yourself at your highest, then you are choosing to block your own way. God Himself will bow before that choice, because the gift of Free Will was given to you at your creation. Yet He will move heavan and earth to help you choose again. He will find a way to offer you the chance to live a different life."

Now I needed to read this today. I have to think a moment on how many times perhaps all of what I wanted to happen was before me and I chose to not see it. Perhaps it was not presented to me exactly as I was trying to manifest. Perhaps it came wrapped in fears I chose not to cast aside. God responds to me, to us, but do we always hear God? We ask for something, and we are given what we ask for but it could be in another form, so we don't bother.

So can I be doing more? There is no more to do, but be aware of what is being shown to me. I ask for and receive assistance in making the choice I am to make. I surrender to God my expectations and open myself to His.

Namaste - Ron
