Awesome Saurabh asks: “Many LOA teachers say that if you want something, and visualize it daily and then take action… it won’t work if you have some negative limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind. So, I want to ask you, if I want something and have many, many negative beliefs around that, will it never manifest in my reality no matter how much I allow it to appear? I have many negative beliefs around money and I might not know about some. If i allow the money to come will it come regardless of the beliefs I am holding in my sub conscious?”
There’s a bit of a misunderstanding in this question, and that’s the idea that you can allow something while triggering resistance. When you are allowing, you are, by definition, not triggering resistance (or limiting beliefs.)
Let’s say that you want money; you have a very strong desire for it, and you focus on feeling good about money on a daily basis. As you do this, and if you’re actually feeling good, you are aligning with the frequency of what you want, and any obstacles (limiting beliefs) that contradict that frequency will manifest, so that you can release them. As long as you keep moving towards what you want (aligning with it), you really can’t miss the resistance. It will get bigger and bigger.
However, if you want money, but aren’t aligning with it, then you may not know that you have resistance. You are not allowing in that moment, but you may not know why. The solution is to do the above – align with it and see what obstacles pop up. Then, release each one.
Oh, and if your desire is strong enough, it may just drag you towards what you want, even if you’re not deliberately focusing. And yes, it will drag you kicking and screaming through your resistance. Then, people look at you and think “he got what he wanted because he suffered a lot”, which is a total misinterpretation of what just happened. But, that’s how limiting beliefs are born.
Arrogance vs. Self Esteem
Awesome dude asks: “Isn’t it wrong of think of myself as wonderful? Isn’t it wrong to be proud? I’ve always been told I’m arrogant and that I think too much of myself.”
Oh my, no! It’s not wrong to think of yourself as wonderful. There’s a big difference between thinking that you are great and thinking that you are better than others. The second is arrogance which actually comes from low self-esteem. When you truly understand your value, you are not insecure and you don’t feel the need to be better than anyone else. In fact, when you recognize your own greatness, you have an easier time seeing it in others, as well.
Those you then still call you arrogant simply have a much lower vibration than you do and are made uncomfortable by it. They try to bring you down to their level so the difference between your two energy levels stops being so evident. But, if you just focus on feeling good and make what they think irrelevant to how you feel, they’ll either have to gravitate right out of your reality or come up to your level to join you. And then, you’ll both be “arrogant”, ha.
Is There A Hell?
Awesome Arils asks: “I read your comment about when we die we return to the non physical where we get what we believe, and that’s very close to what I believe too. What I am really afraid of is that the Christians and some Buddhist kept saying people who committed suicide will go to hell or be reborn as a man to suffer again, and when I look up pictures of hell, I get really sad. What do you have to say about hell? Because there are many near death experience that show people going to hell, then coming back to earth. I don’t want all those who’ve committed suicide because of pain to go to hell. That’s just plain cruel; that’s more cruel than man. And to think God claimed he is kind. Are you sure there is no hell? Because it sounds really bad, suffering in insane pain for eternity without rest…”
Well, as always, I can only tell you my truth. And my truth is that there is no hell, except the one we create for ourselves here on earth (by thinking that life has to be hard and filled with suffering, and by keeping ourselves from receiving what we’ve created). But, after death, there is no hell, no punishment, no judgment, no retribution, no Devil, no evil, no life review, no purgatory. There’s only light and love and knowing and huge, expanded perspective. When we die, we drop all of our resistance and instantly experience everything we’ve ever wanted. It’s all heaven, all the time.
Actually, I want to clarify something – I never said that after death you get what you believe. In fact, your beliefs just drop away. You get what you wanted, without all of your resistance. Your inner being withdraws his focus from this physical world and you rejoin him and get access to everything you’ve caused him to become.
About those who’ve committed suicide: Abraham likes to say that every death is a suicide. I believe that, as well. There is no punishment for suicide. Think about it: the person who committed suicide did so out of extreme, unimaginable pain. The time of the transition was agreed upon by the non physical as well (otherwise it’s not suicide, but an attempt), but the way is an incredibly painful one. What would be the purpose of adding more pain on top of that? As you said, it’s cruel. And it’s not true. The Universe is not cruel. It’s love. Pure and simple. I may write a post specifically about suicide in the near future to explore this further.
As far as near death experiences go, I answered this in a comment on a recent post, in reply to a question about near death experiences and life reviews. I’ll reprint my answer here:
[Near death is not death. It’s a partial withdrawal from the physical body and this particular perspective, where you then have the ability to leap (and yes, it is a quantum leap) to a broader perspective. But, you’re still very much connected to your body. So, you get access to this higher vibration, which comes with insights. You manifest more clarity. When you “return” your focus to your body, your brain then translates the energy you had access to. And that translation will make sense to you. It will make sense of the massive shift you just experienced – your mind will then understand what happened emotionally. It will all seem seamless, of course, and you may even think that you had an emotional reaction because of the intellectual understanding you achieved, but it was actually the other way around.
No one actually almost dies. We either die or we don’t. Our hearts may stop, but if we recover, it was because we did not actually withdraw our focus from our bodies. We didn’t transition.
I’ve actually experienced such a life review moment, and I’ve never been dead nor nearly dead. It was during a shamanic ritual. I saw every moment of my life laid out before me and understood the importance of each one. And I realized how perfect each moment had been, how utterly important. How nothing is wasted. Not a second, not a breath, not an encounter. And although I couldn’t hold on to the incredible amount of detail I experienced (I really saw my whole life!) when my focus returned to the here and now, the experience remained. And yes, it changed me profoundly. I had reached a new level of consciousness. Even though, upon my “return”, I wasn’t quite at that level of clarity anymore, I was much, much higher than I’d been before. It was a quantum leap. (Note: If I had been working through massive amounts of resistance, I might easily have seen the review from a more "negative" perspective, with more judgment, etc. As it was, I'd already dropped loads of resistance in two previous ceremonies and was thus prepared to receive this shift in a more positive way. Near death experiencers don't generally get the luxury of moving incrementally like that.)
You see whatever you need to see in order to shift your vibration. The near death experience and shift are manifestations – drastic ones. Often, people experience profound personality shifts after such an experience. Well, of course they do. They've experienced a massive shift in their vibration!]
