I started by asking the really big questions about life, the universe and everything, and kept asking and asking, probing, prying, and delving, and eventually I found the questions came right back to me.
My biggest leap was finding out just what stillness and silence can do for you. Just finding somewhere quiet, sitting down, and just stopping. Stopping thought, stoping action, stopping movement, just letting my inner captain ring down to the engine room with the order 'Full Stop."
To use another analogy, at the fire station we have portable communications radios so we can talk to each other on the fire ground. Often after a lot of to and fro communication they need recharging, so we take them and sit them in their recharging socket, and there they remain until the little green light comes on saying 'recharged' That is how I feel after meditating. I feel like I have stopped operations, plugged into the universe and recharged. My battery is full, I'm reset, and I'm ready to go and communicate again.
My biggest gains have been learning:
- How to really listen
- How to calm my thoughts and meditate
- How to use the law of attraction to bring immediate results
- How to enjoy the here and now
- How to improve my communication
I can slow down or stop my thoughts, and I'm aware when they feel chaotic. When I talk I'm aware when I'm gabbling, and I can slow my voice down, and start structuring questions, using new skills to get more from a conversation, and find out more about someone than perhaps they'd like to give away, or are aware they're giving away!
I have got to know myself very well this past year, and I'm liking the person I have become, or perhaps I was that person all along, but I needed to do some searching to find him. I have forgiven myself for past events, and released grievances against other people too. This has been hugely liberating. When I encounter people I find annoying, I try to 'find the gold' and realise that it is me where the problem lies and my perception of them, not the other person.
The law of attraction is a huge subject, and I have just scratched the surface so far, but I'm well on the way to changing my vibration and bringing good things into my life. Everyone loves to start with 'programming' parking spaces, and the ability to park right outside your desired shop on a rainy day is amazing and always makes me laugh in surprise! I have MindStore to thank for this, it only works! It's just a little party piece really, but now I'm moving onto bigger things and I can feel the change. For the full picture I will direct you to my friend Melody Fletcher at www.deliberatereceiving.com Melody is the definitive authority on this subject and she will show you the way!
The REAL big society
You see Positive Paradise isn't just about one person, it is about a community of people. In the future I plan to involve writers, artists, musicians, designers, engineers, people with vision. Creative people from all backgrounds who can combine to teach Mr and Mrs average citizen, that by opening their minds and peeking through the curtain, they can see the cogs and gears of the universe, harness the power of the machinery, and use it for good. I will show them that there is more to our world than what they've been taught and conditioned to perceive. Just like in any production, the magic happens behind the scenes. We're all going to take a backstage tour and get front row seats for the performance of our life. Now how exciting is that?!
