I come from a large-scale hairy-sized transformation program management background and the term gating is used to describe all the things that need to happen, be signed off etc. before moving to the next stage. It’s important to bear this in mind when doing the emotional ladder work and I wanted to share my latest ‘process’ with you all.
Firstly, as I see it, manifestation falls into two categories which can be loosely defined as a ‘thing’ or an ‘improved state of being’. My theme on this blog is always about money, by the way, in case you hadn’t noticed!
If you have plenty of cash and money isn’t an issue you may be wanting a hard-to-find vintage sports car or a home close to your children’s school with 4 bedrooms, etc. Both appear, for now, impossible but there’s nothing you need to do or be differently and some focused attention with vivid detail of what you want will bring it into play. This is Consciousness 101, a ‘transactional’ thing and a gentle holding of that vision and just a little bit of faith will bring it to pass.
If you’ve had a lifetime of struggling to make ends meet or are intrigued as to why your finances swing between the cumulus nimbulus and the earth’s crust, as in my case, then you’ll be looking for a different mindset. The mindset, essentially what your subconscious tells you how the world is made up and from your previous conscious thoughts, influences the conscious, mostly without your knowing (which is why it’s called the subconscious … der!) and in turn your reality and your experience. Doing something about that mindset requires continual ‘thought management’ until it’s embedded into the subconscious, runs on autopilot and doesn’t require any conscious effort like driving a car. It’s been fashionable to say it takes 21 days or 40 days to reprogram the subconscious but I think it doesn’t need to be like that (mostly because I simply don’t like that idea – too long!) You may be well along the path and just need some tweaks that you weren’t aware of yet and repeating the same old line every day for 21 days and then BINGO just doesn’t make sense. You’ll know when you’ve cracked that stage of limited thinking and you’ll be inspired to move to the next level of nonsense unfurling.
So, how to do it? I’m all about sharing hows 🙂
If you’re in a lot of financial pain then you must first take the sting out and with what you know now the best way to do that is to forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for buying into the ‘you don’t deserve’ or ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’ you may have been programmed with at birth. Feel better about yourself and this ‘work’ that you’re doing not just to solve a ‘problem’ of today, not just as an investment for the future but as an investment for the future of the whole Universe. You’re undoing the nonsense and raising the whole consciousness of the planet. With a sticky subject like money can there ever be a more virtuous undertaking? Plus don’t be critical of your prior creations, they were magic when you did them, remember?
It’s important to evaluate what you’re getting right now and what feelings that encompasses. Feelings expose subconscious thought providing the best indicator of what you’re thinking. It may be sick of struggle or not having what you want. First flip the feeling around, e.g. to financial ease and with everything you want and just park it there, don’t entertain it yet, you’re not at the right level of consciousness. It’s still a ‘problem’ in your mind to be fixed and soon you’ll be feeling the solution. It’s critical to indulge the bad feelings as this is really where the gold is and where your work lays. Don’t wait until you get high because you’ll no longer have insight into what to practice and may be missing the mark. I spent a loooooong time avoiding my ‘bad’ feelings and attempting to pivot to what I wanted instead but soon got bumped back down because I hadn’t released the negativity by accepting myself and I wasn’t re-picturing the right state of revised being. In this example I didn’t realise it was financial ease I really wanted. I don’t want a million dollars and still be worried I’m going to lose the lot. I want to know where it comes from, how I can create it, how I can enjoy it and how I can keep it. I now know this is how life is supposed to be and I simply want to be in financial harmony with the Universe … at ease.
Don’t move on to the next stage, hence gating and objectives, until you feel good about yourself. It all starts with you, remember? You are the Universe and in some regards (it still spins my head to think about it) there is only the you in your experience. Everything else is put there by you. Subjective Reality as Steve Pavlina calls it.
In all of this you must use these words as a guide and adopt only what lights you up. Everything else you should throw away as more blog nonsense
2. I create my future from NOW
Moving up the scale and feeling better about myself I remind myself that I create my future, minute by minute, by my frequency. There is no future as we see it but just more events and experiences played out by our beliefs and expectations. I have the power to create my future my my thoughts and frequency right NOW! I find this line very helpful in shifting to neutral when I’ve had a bad day and gives me renewed vigour to continue my work.
Before moving on to what is wanted I must be comfortable that I am no longer pushing against what is ticking me off, thereby giving it fuel and keeping it in place. One way to tell is to ask yourself, if this went on forever, would you be ok with it? Contemplate that idea, let go of your dreams for one moment, feel some release, know that it won’t go on forever anyway and when comfortable, get back on the horse.
3. Everything I want and need has already been created for me
You don’t go out to the Universe to get what you want. What you are wanting is wanting to come to you. You receive, not get. It’s taken me a looooong time to get my head around this and this is the foundation for effortless and rapid manifestation. You don’t have to do anything, in fact you shouldn’t be doing anything. You’ve already asked for it, whether through images (the house) or improved states of being (financial ease) so relax and let it in. Yeah, let it come to you while youre on the beach, you don’t have to keep chasing it. Think of the different mindsets involved. The ‘chaser’ is always in a state of chasing, or asking as Abraham would put it, whereas the receiver is always ina state of receiving. This requires significant faith and a flipping of how were all taught to live to go and get what we want but we don’t need to. You don’t need to go get it because you already have it!
Take this concept to bed, cuddle it and marinate in it for as long as comfortable. Actually, you should stay at each of these steps until you feel a sense of release or completeness. Use this concept to then move onto the feeling of the having of what you desire. I expect all readers know how to practise the having but it needs to be done at the right stage of consciousness and I find the ‘money wants to come to you’ a most delicious pre-thought which helps me visit my feeling place more easily, quickly and often, the purpose of this post. Remember to practise the states of being like ease and comfort rather than your spending of it.
4. I know I’m supposed to have lots of money
Opening up further I find it good to revisit more spiritual beliefs to get the juices going. Yes you are supposed to have whatever you want. If you can think of one billion dollars then you can have it, in fact, you are supposed to have it, if you want to, for the benefit of this Universe and its expansion through your creative thoughts. You’re supposed to have what you want, although I doubt right now you’re wanting a billion dollars, so now’s the time to revisit those improved states of financial well-being.
Now you’re feeling positive and feeling like you can have anything, it’s important to address the flipped emotions identified in step 1. You’ll never make a million dollars if you’re coming from a place of struggle. You’ve released the struggle but you still need to embed the opposite, ease, in your mind. Think of a million dollars, if necessary, but dwell on how easy it is to have it. How are you making money? Have you worked on that? Is the million going to dwindle or do you have it established in your mind that more money is coming? I feel rich and expect more to come after spending it so that I maintain my state of still being rich!
It’s very tempting to ‘spend’ the money in your mind on what pleases you when really your work is to adjust your mindset to one of ease, continuing flow of money, comfortable spending, etc. whatever it is that you desire in terms of being. So, don’t ‘spend’ the money just yet until you see it beginning to flow in your life because you’ll still be vibrating its opposite and still have work to do. Don’t ‘spend’ the money on vacations and fast cars if you’re not yet feeling you have plenty and you’re not yet comfortable plenty more is coming.
5. Your favourite mantras
You’ve got the emotional opposite of your bugbears, financial ease for example, so now’s the time to go practise them. You’re at the right state, ideally deeply relaxed, and you’re most susceptible to the new ways of viewing your money, e.g. money comes easily to me, and you have no qualms in believing what you’ve just said. I no longer need to manage my money, it’s boring(!) and half of my spare time has now become free. My money is simply always there, I don’t need to do anything, etc.
Jose Silva of the Silva Mind Control Method has spent his life studying mental states and has identified that we are more susceptible, in the waking state, when we are deeply relaxed and our brain waves are oscillating at the ‘alpha’ level of something like 12 times per second. In a waking state, the beta level, our brains are oscillating at something like 24 and delta, the sleep state, something like 2-3. Silva understood the importance of reaching alpha level in reprogramming the subconscious and markets some audio beats that are designed to mimic the brain’s natural frequency at alpha level. I highly recommend looking into his work
6. Now add the detail of what’s important to you
You’re high, you’re positive and you’re in creation mode, now add some detail to make it real in your mind that further reinforce your desired emotional state, of ease, for example. My bank balance continues to rise and I’m so comfortable paying my bills I do them all at the beginning of the month and not on the last due date, for example.
No-one gets a million dollars cash, they get it electronically. No-one leaves a million dollars in a checking account, either, so what are the hallmarks of having it? Lots of investment accounts? Now’s the time to see the Maseratis in the driveway if that’s what you’re after. Me, I’m after freedom and spontaneity so a spare ‘travel’ account would work for me so my family and i can just get up and go whenever I wanted. I might leave $50,000 in a checking account for day to day expenses and, I dunno, haven’t got any further than that! Whatever works for you is important and there’s value in researching what rich people do with their money if that’s what you’re into.
7. See it all as done and explore additional mental states
You’re still in a susceptible frame of mind and you should continue there as long as possible. See it as done and sit with it for adjacent thoughts to come to support you. I now have choices, for example, in where to live or even in whether I go to work or not. I’m choosing to do what I really love to do like write these blogs and share my experiences.
8. Bring it back to the material world and be expectant
Coming out of your meditative state you should expect results else it’s all an academic exercise. It’s easy to get back into the humdrum of putting the dishwasher on and thinking it was all a dream so some more spiritual beliefs to hold in your mind might help you to remain positive, e.g. I know my money only ever comes from me and today could be starting point I’m looking for.
So, what can you expect to happen? Whatever you’re comfortable in expecting, basically, and it’s helpful to keep a collection of your success stories and a log of what works for you in remaining positive and optimistic. My line, which needs work(!) is ‘Today I expect to see greater signs and evidence of my improved vibration’. Again, this is a frequency you need to hold and is a delicate balancing act when you don’t yet have what you want! This is an ongoing exercise, at least daily, to grow your prosperity consciousness and the only limit is what you’re prepared to conceive.
Hope you enjoy and have success with this approach and please offer up any improvements, for the good of all, of course!.
