Do the two exercises in the chapter (First focusing on simple concepts and holding the concepts in your mind for a minute or so. Then focus on different concepts and stack them together). How did this practice feel to you? How far were you able to go with it?
Concept stack these statements:
Everything comes from nothing
Therefore everything is essentially nothing
Nothing is I, I am nothing
Nothing is thinking
Nothing is feeling
Nothing is identifying
Nothing is true, everything is possible,
and so, I am.
Write down your experience with stacking this one by one. Works best while meditating. Note down your experience with this attempt.
1-2.I went to a seminar several years ago and “nothing” was discussed. These concepts reminds me of that seminar and make me feel and be more aware that I have to relax more and not be so worried and stressed about things in life, because everything is nothing. All the situations, emotions, and feelings, I can keep them and give them value or let them go be nothing. Everything is possible means I can create whatever I want, to fully believe in it and create it and I will be that. I remember I had to prepare for a fitness test and I was worried that I was going to fail. It didn’t occur to me until I saw one of my coworkers preparing for it in a different method. That helped me see that I could try that method and I could pass. A wave of excitement and relief washed over me and my preparation afterwards had a pep to it. My thoughts and feelings changed. I put in my subconscious mind of what scores I need to get a first class and I did it. I can do this again to other aspects of my life and see how things change. There are obstacles, people who don’t believe in these concepts, certain circumstances, but if there is full conviction and effort, the creation can happen. I am going to try this and see if the results manifest.
Six of Wands
I do not know the meaning of Six of Wands and I decided to not look up what it means and just go with the flow like you said. The man is looking to the right, or looking forward, in the same direction as his horse. There’s a contemplative look on his face and a wand that has flowers which makes me feel happier than the other wands in the background. Toward the right is the sun, he is facing the sun and I think he is moving towards the sun into a brighter place. Currently, I feel like I am at a cusp of a change in my life – I can feel shifts in my thoughts, feelings, in my actions, and the routine of my daily life. I acknowledge some of my habits that are not healthy for me, that needs to change. I cannot continue living like I have done in the past. I am researching for the changes that I will make, and I know that where I’m headed, it will be after I meditate, self-reflect, have full conviction and decision to do it, and asking for support. Where I’ve been helped me become who I am now, but I cannot stay who I was. I cannot maintain the thoughts, feelings. I was not happy and seeked externally to make me content. I have to seek internally and learn to be kinder to myself and stand up for myself amongst others who try to bring me down. To speak up, so I can show others an example of how to speak up.
These are my thoughts as I stared at the picture. The person, the person’s soul or aura, or light that spreads out into earth and the universe, you have come down into this body. You saw a moment, you had a moment before, as a protector, as a guardian, as a spirit guardian, as a spiritual being and you met the other physical guardian. Spiritual also needs physical tests, just as physical also needs spiritual tests. They work together, they work as a team. Your life here will be hard but there will be beautiful moments. It will be okay and it will prepare you for the next life. Help others as it nourishes you. You will not be rich, but you will have a successful life in a way you never dreamed of. Success in love, success in joy. And all the hard work and sweat will be worth it. Embrace the pain, it will be there whether you like it or not. I got you. Your failures will make your success that much sweeter and relief with gratefulness. Your failures are little compare to the overall success, but many failures you will have to learn and no one will say you got it easy.
How would you define subconcious communication? What is it to you and what are some of your experiences with it? If you understand little, what is your confusion with it?
Subconscious communication could differ from person to person. For me, it is the subtleness, that quick pause, nudge, and whether I consciously choose to follow it or not. Or it’s following whatever your mind and body tells you to do and trust it. I was hiking in the woods and I just suddenly told my friend to put our cell phones in a plastic bag and put in the backpack. A few minutes, rain came down. I didn’t know for certain it was going to rain. I just followed whatever my mind thought without hesitation and asking. There can be signs, but sometimes that could be trying too hard and could be a confirmation bias.
How do you unlock more subconscious communication?
How would you describe your intuition? How do you determine the more intuitive answer within from the egoic desires? If you don’t do this so well, why?
I am more aware and listen to my intuition more than I had in the past. My intuititive answer is usually the softer, more subtle. Sometimes it is really strong in telling me not to do something, which means if I don’t listen (which I’ve done before), it has a negative impact on me. If I listen when it is really strong, I’m usually succesful. Sometimes I don’t listen to intuition because my logical side gets to me. And sometimes the logic side is right, but I wonder if I should have done the intuition and not get it right to learn something.
