Finding Clarity to Live an Exceptional Life
This decade from 2011 to 2020 will bring massive changes, the likes of which have not been known on the planet - ever. If we reflect on the past 110 years we see the invention of the car, telephone, computer, and movements away from living a largely rural existence to now largely urban lifestyles. As a futurist, psychic and remote viewer, when I tune into this decade it becomes almost impossible to describe what I see. The quantum field is abuzz with new creations, limited only by the extent of our imaginations. Certainly there will be an increase in high-tech along with a return by many to living off the land. However, the greatest change that I see is in the consciousness of humanity. When the populace becomes fully conscious they have a complete 360 degree view of reality from their Godselves - so anything on Earth - and beyond - is possible.
Raise the bar on yourself. The following techniques require the very best of your current skills and abilities.
Think of me as an an invisible mentor - a soft voice whispering suggestions to to you. It’s up to you to do the work if you want positive, lasting yet dynamic change. That’s the way of things if you want ownership of your life. Now let's get down to it. Do you make your own decisions? Or do you allow others to direct your life? Do you subject yourself to the flotsam and jetsam of the whims and needs of others? Is decision-making an equal and lively dance with loved ones or colleagues? Do you really, really, really know what you want?
Self-knowledge, love and creativity are the ultimate goals of being human.
What You Need to Get to YES!
Listen in on Your Own Conversations and Observe Yourself in Action.
Look around. What you see in your life today is a direct manifestation of your thoughts, attitudes, feelings and beliefs.
Are your words saying what you sincerely and wholeheartedly want:
- understanding - positive change - an exceptional life?
What is your silent inner dialogue really saying?
– Is a self-saboteur silently, or wilfully, in action?
Are your true wishes in alignment with your words?
Are you meeting your dreams with the appropriate work and action?
It's up to you. Please do not rely on or wait for someone else to make your dreams a reality.
Are you Resistant to Change?
I don’t want to upset the applecart - best to maintain the status quo; my life is boring yet fine just the way it is thank you very much; I actually enjoy the struggle – it’s cosy – at least I know this, and besides, it makes me feel alive; I’m really afraid to take a risk and branch out; I’m scared I’ll succeed; I’m scared I’ll fail; I’m my own worst critic; Why bother? The world’s going to hell in a handbag anyway; I need to be convinced – you convince me what’s best for me; No! ; I’m too exhausted; I give up - there’s no way out of this mess; Other people are to blame for my situation; I don’t know how; Moan, groan, kvetch, whine.
Be aware that working with this information might be uncomfortable and even bring up a little - or a lot - of resentfulness and anger. Stay with it. Keep working and push through any resistance.
