It has been about 6 months now since the last awakening lesson: The true nature of self.
I have been busy with many other projects and in the process of moving to Vancouver to finish my apprenticeship with the Union 170 over there. Also working lots on my own music as well as my label: Ocean Fresh Productions.
If you guys like my content then you may want to check out my hip-hop music as well because it carries a lot of my knowledge and heart. Music is my main passion and biggest high in life and if you want to really get to know me as soul then that is where you will hear who I really am at heart. My music website is here: Smoky Mirror
So the topic for our next lesson is: How to achieve your dreams!
This is one that I think people will really vibe with and it is all practical knowledge that can be used for anything you choose.
I want nothing more that to help you all awaken to your inner most passion and be living your dreams with your eyes open 😉
From once only visualizing where you wanted to be to living it out 100%
Waking up with so much joy and ambition knowing you have achieved your soul purpose and get to work at it every day for the rest of your life!
No matter if it is learning to play an instrument, become an athlete or start your own business; the content here can help anyone by first forming a solid plan within your mind then using techniques like creative visualization and prayer to help crystallize this into physical reality.
“imagination creates reality” -Neville Goddard
This is imperative that you take some time out of your day to work towards this and even if it seems like a very difficult thing to achieve you still got to take the first few steps.
You don’t want to look back on your life when you get old and have any regrets about how you should have worked harder at what you really wanted to do but never took the time out of your day to do so.
There is no better time than the moment to ACT on what you need to in order to get closer towards your goals. If you need some inspiration then there are many mentors online for anything you can think of. Do some research and find a few mentors who are very successful in the field of your interest and then watch 5 – 10 mins of their content every day to motivate you and keep you on track.
This has been key for myself in everything from dating, to performing live, building self discipline and learning the field of online business.
Once we know clearly what it is that we want to do then we first need a strong sense of self BELIEF! This is so important and I can’t stress it enough that without believing in your dreams first then nothing will happen.
There is a difference between saying to someone that you belief in yourself and your dreams compared to having a strong 100% FLAWLESS conviction that you will achieve your dream no matter what.
I always refer to the movie the matrix for this concept how Neo couldn’t jump the buildings the first time he tried because though he believed he could he still had some deep subconscious doubt that held him back..
This subconscious doubt can sometimes be difficult to replace and can take time. If say you grew up around people who put down your dreams and told you to be more practical then it may be strongly imprinted upon your mind and can only be changed through a disciplined practice of repetition and affirmations over and over until you form a new belief system about yourself. Napoleon Hill speaks about this a lot in his book “Think and Grow Rich.”
Another excellent book I would recommend on this subject is called: The Secret of the Ages by: Robert Collier. This book has taught me many things about the subconscious the universal consciousness and how to manifest your dreams by connecting to the all knowing energy field that permeates all creation. The universe is within you as the intelligence behind nature and can help you in any ways once you know how to call on it for your need.
Prayer is another excellent tool in this respect and can help connect you to the spiritual side of life which is the intelligence behind nature and the entire cosmos.
Faith and belief go hand in hand and are very similar it is just that faith is usually used in a spiritual manner more than belief but they are both two assets of the same force.
The next step then is to know that everything starts in the mind so learn how to visualize yourself completing the tasks you need to and think details about how you will FEEL in that moment, what is the lighting like? the sounds around you at the time? is it warm or cold out? all of these sense perceptions will help to manifest your dream into the physical that much faster than being vague.
“The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.” –Wayne Dyer
After we have followed all the steps to help co-create our dreams, we can then start thinking about the actual steps of ACTING on the goals because thoughts will never become reality until acted on.
So first things first you need to learn the foundation to success which is SELF DISCIPLINE! This is everything and it doesn’t come so easy at first.. You need to make an effort to train yourself day after day at doing what you know needs to be done first before anything else. Some helping factors for this is things that will boost your WILL POWER.
Robbin Sharma’s 3 Magic ingredients for will power
Without enough of any of these you can run out of the energy needed to keep acting on what needs to be done so make sure you work a healthy balance into your routine and stop sometimes to re-charge if you start to feel drained half way through the day.
Another great thing I found helpful was to watch as many videos as I could on YouTube which gave me a lot of great new tips and inspiration like the one I posted above. There are also audio books and paperback you can order if you really need more help.
After self discipline comes TIME MANAGEMENT.
Knowing how to organize your goals and then write them down in a schedule book for the day/week/month ahead. Then keeping a constant eye on what you need to do next and making sure not to sidetrack too much on what are known as time-wasters like the Facebook news-feed.
Lastly I would like to finish by letting you know it’s ok to slip off track at times.. Life is crazy and unpredictable and you cant expect to perfectly manage every day without unexpected trials and tribulations coming up sometimes..
Just keep reminders and things that can help you to always come back to your path eventually. It can actually be quite healthy to take a break from everything for a few days and just have fun, go out into nature or party with friends.
When you come back you may find you have new ideas and insights that your subconscious has now had time to sort and bring forward.
Eckhart Tolle helped me to understand things from a new perspective when he explained: “”Once you have made peace with the present moment, see what happens, what you can do or choose to do, or rather what life does through you. There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness: One with Life. Being one with life is being one with Now. You then realize that you don’t live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer and you are the dance.”
Thanks for your time and stay tuned for lesson #7 (Staying on track)
