Making The Almost-Certain Certain

“What is it about the human mind that seeks ahead of the moment…and completely ignores what is present right now, while not trusting that all is unfolding itself just as it should?

“What is it that has us ignoring the incredible beauty before us which points to our natural wealth that is almost certainly renewing itself in many and various forms in our every moment?” G.A.

Dear Gaye,

Those words are from your latest post. I’m going to pick you up on a single phrase here, because it points to the difference between total faith and adopted belief. And the difference between the two makes all the difference!

Firstly, though, I congratulate you on admitting your fear. Most of us feel some kind of fear at some point during the day. Admitting it is the first step to addressing it. The next step is to overlay the fear with a behavior based on faith, because when you do this you make an imprint on your subconscious mind, rewiring those neural networks in the fastest way possible. Think of your subconscious as a pot of putty. When you act from faith, in the face of fear, you make an impression in that putty – you literally “impress yourself” by doing things in a new way.

So how do you do that?

Begin by choosing your words really carefully, especially when you put them in writing. Words are your outward demonstration of your inner frequency. They’ll determine which radio-station you tune in to each and every moment of the day. So, begin to choose them with that in mind. Which radio station do you wish to hear?

The bit of the sentence above that I’m most interested in is where you say that “natural wealth is almost certainly renewing itself in many and various forms.” Stop a moment and see how your body feels as you re-read those words. Are they words of love and faith or is there just a whiff of doubt lingering at their edges?

My guess is it’s the latter. And here’s why:

Whilst you are thinking that the process of creating wealth (in all its forms) is only almost-certain, that is all it will be for you: almost certain, but not quite. So, let’s choose another way of saying it.

To do this, let’s return to the turquoise bracelet at the art bazaar.

Here’s the thing: as I wrote my last post to you, you had already been to the shop, seen the bracelet, tried it on – and bought it! So what happened here? Spooky psychics? Random chance? Meaningless coincidence? Or part of the Weft of Wealth, the Divine Design that surrounds and informs every atom of our universe?

I say it’s part of the Divine Design that underpins life, the innate intelligence that exists within everything. I say that you were drawn to the perfect table displaying jewelry at the perfect time because you had just been synchronizing your breathing and body movements in a way that helped ground you (in the yoga class). I love the lesson of the turquoise because it’s a lesson in trust, a demonstration that all is well, backed up by my writing the post immediately afterwards.

It’s a coincidence in the true meaning of the word: something that co-incides: a synchronicity that proves we are all interconnected. Synchronicities are a great sign that things are happening perfectly. My experience is that when we really have faith, when we “go with the flow” and allow our intuition to lead us in the dance, synchronicities pop up all over the place.

What stops synchronicity in its tracks?  Fear. Every time. It’s not that they aren’t there, it’s just that we get so preoccupied with whatever is frightening us we just don’t SEE what’s staring us in the face. So, when we’re stressed, anxious or having one of those “Dammit, why is life such a pain in the butt?” kind of days, synchronicities still happen – we just don’t notice them.

Fear is what has us ignore the incredible beauty all around us too and prompts us to seek ahead of the moment, fixating us on what we “don’t have” at the expense of revelling in what we do…

So let’s turn your phrase from one of almost-certainty to one that is wrapped in comfort instead. Instead of saying that natural wealth is “almost certainly” renewing itself in various forms in our every moment, let’s choose to say that natural wealth is most definitely renewing itself in many forms, in every nook and cranny of our lives and the lives of everyone on the planet!

How does that make you feel? Is there a whiff of doubt lingering over that phrase? I hope not.

And now let’s move it further, impressing your subconscious in two ways: with words and actions.

Let’s choose an image that fits this change of description. How about “Finding natural wealth is as easy as finding a $7 turquoise bracelet!” or “Natural Wealth is Turquoise Wealth! It finds me wherever I go!” Does that help to shift things?

The key here is to create the feeling inside you that you were experiencing when you walked up to that jewelers table and saw the bracelet. Seems to me you were relaxed, in a good place. So, each time you direct your mind to that feeling, your body will respond by feeling reassured. It’s a simple technique, but it works. Put your attention to what came easily in the past, to what felt good, and you create those things in the present.

Now add something physical to the process. This really helps impress the putty of the subconscious because you involve physical muscle-movement in the process. I advise you to always combine some physical movement with an affirmation. It makes all the difference. In this case, why not wear your bracelet as you say what feels good out loud? Or hold it in your hands. Touch it. Roll the pieces around in your fingers. Feel the smooth stones as you say out loud:

“My doors of opportunity are flung open and cannot be closed because they have been NAILED BACK! I now walk through them with a smile on my face!”

See how that goes!

A quick final note: I love the synchronicity of the turquoise bracelet on the table. I also love the other necklace that you found (the one you made in Santa Fe last year), because it has its own synchronicity too. It’s another demonstration for you that the beauty of natural wealth is most certainly renewing itself, moment by moment, in your life.

Following on from my comments on turquoise and onyx last week I also wrote:

“Thirdly, wear red or rich terracotta colors when possible. Red, being the color of the first chakra, will be a great aid for your core energy.”

I see from the picture you posted that this second necklace has stones in it that are just that color!  (Do you know what they are by the way?). Bingo!

Synchronicities abound in our lives, in every nook and cranny, in each moment. All it takes is the ability to pause, to stop the distractions and to listen to the messages that are reaching us each and every moment of the day. When we do this, timings are perfect, funds flow and energy levels rise. And that’s what Natural Wealth is all about.

Look at it this way: when you take the decision to hand over your life to the 99% of you that is invisible (the Divine Self as I call it) you are putting in a telephone call to the Divine Designer (or whatever you like to call the “infinite spirit” behind and within all nature).  You’re saying to your Divine Self: “I’m ready to do things a new way! Put me in touch with the Divine! I’m ready for Natural Wealth!”

That’s a fine first step in the process – so long as you are available to take the return call when it comes back!

Synchronicities are the evidence of those return calls from the Divine. So whenever you feel fear rising in the chest, direct yourself to the feeling of fearlessness, balance, calm that you had when you found that turquoise necklace, to the feeling that was (as you later discovered) a demonstration of wonderful synchronicity.

Then be ready to pick up the phone when it starts to ring!
