received an email from a reader that was a bit lost on my Allowing
post, and wondered if I could re-state it better. I realize this is a
different type of thinking, so I opened my mind and let Spirit do the
"Allowing II: Reprogrammed"
In efforts to
manifest, people have been told to concentrate, make vision boards, and
think the same thoughts over and over until, at long last, the desire
becomes reality. This is the way information is presented from
people who live life solely from a physical perspective. Over time,
people have noticed that when they have a specific thought on their
mind, the thought seems to appear as a solid reality and they cannot
explain why. Other times, thoughts come and go without any production
into the physical. This whimsical manifestation process has bewildered
people, so some have attempted to come up with logical sounding
explanations on how to force Thought into being.
is, Thought cannot be forced. Thought simply IS. Thought goes out into
every direction, leaving nothing untouched; but cannot be forced to be
one place or another; or restricted from one place or another. And since
Thought is everywhere, there is no need to try and Attract it to you,
as movies like, The Secret, suggests. Everything you need is already
there, all around you.
The confusion comes when people see
something in their physical world that they haven't experienced yet;
then they think something new has been created. And for the sake of
simplified understanding, it is okay to believe that the brain created
something new, however, in order to progress along this different line
of thinking, at some point the curtain will need to be pulled back just a
bit so you will understand why sometimes what you think about shows up,
and why sometimes it does not. It isn't blind faith that makes you
aware, but knowledge.
Now, this is where you may need to put on
your "Contemplation Hats" because this may sound a bit odd. But what
Thought really is, is Spirit. There is no separation between Thought and
Spirit. They are, in fact, the same thing.
The problem with
this is that people often get hung up on words. Too much emphasis is
added to words like Spirit, Soul or God. And the moment those words are
altered, yet describe the same things, people reject the knowledge. Even
the words to describe this to you are limited and leave out many
aspects. It isn't that God is trying to be mysterious; it's just that
the language isn't there for the translation. Spirit does not, and
never has, kept secrets from the brain. Therefore, the understanding has
to come from another place. This place is the realm of Thought (another
limited word, but we'll simply have to go with what we have to work
Thought comes from an unseen place, passes through the
brain and is captured. The new ideas are then added to the brain's
cellular structure. Of course, the brain is certain that the Thoughts
originated within itself, but that is merely the ego reasoning things
Just to put things into perspective, you cannot create
anything. You cannot manifest anything. Creation is already complete.
All that you desire has already been manifested in Thought, and this
Thought is All encompassing and All consuming. This Thought is, in fact,
The Rest of Who You Are. If you wish to experience this overly abundant
Thought in the physical, you simply must allow it to be so. The
illusion is that the human brain believes itself to be the Creator. The
brain is only just now coming to the understanding that it is not the
Creator - it is the receiver and the translator. It receives data, and
translates experience back into a frequency that the Soul can
understand. That is to say; Thought moves from one frequency into a
physical frequency, and is translated through our tissues back into a
Thought frequency. It is a perfect circle of communication; it is a
perfect circle of communion. It is, all together, perfect.
But for the sake of simplicity, I will continue to designate our human identities as Soul or Spirit.
The Soul has already arranged what it wants to experience. An open mind
can receive this information in advance and know what to expect. A
closed mind will receive the same information from the Soul, but will
not be aware of it. So when you get an idea in your head, (out of the
blue), know that the Soul wants to experience that idea; the brain
simply captured the idea, and became aware of the Soul's intentions. At
this point, a well trained brain knows exactly what to do - just as a
great butler would know how to serve its master.
If you believe
that you never get anything you want, then you just need to change your
perspective on things - then you'll see you have always received
exactly what your mouth said you would get. And your mouth only said it
because your Soul put it there. The brain may not believe it gets what
it wants; but the Soul always gets what It wants - and that is the only
part that matters.
When you start to speak differently, it
won't be because you are tired and want a change. It will be because the
Soul is ready to move on to the next part of Its experiential agenda,
and has placed the idea for change in the brain of Its body. Now you
find yourself reading articles on how to change (reprogram) your
thinking so you can have the things you want. But in reality, it is the
Soul that is making the change and making Its body read these things
because the Soul is in reprogram mode.
As I have said, the body serves the Soul, not the other way around.
