You Create Your Own Reality: Much More than a Catchy Slogan–Part 3

 

Step by Step Reality Creation

1. Use your thoughts, emotions, and imagination to focus on what you want. If you can’t believe that it can ever happen, just pretend that you can, the way a child pretends to be a doctor or to drive a car. Have a light touch while you do this, being playful with it if you can. This is not about trying hard; it is turning your attention to how nice it will be/feel once you have what you want.

If you are poor, you purposely pretend that you have all you need financially. Imagine how you will spend the money. If you are ill, imagine playfully that you are cured. See yourself doing what you would do. If you cannot communicate with others, imagine yourself doing so easily. If you feel your days dark and pointless, then imagine them filled and joyful. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 619, p. 63)

2.  As you are focusing, imagine experiencing the outcome with all of your senses that you can–see it, feel it, hear it, taste it, smell it. Really use your     imagination and feel the emotions surrounding the outcome.

You must begin to initiate action that you want to occur physically (emphatically) by creating it in your own being . . . This is done by combining belief, emotion and imagination, and forming them into a mental picture of the desired result. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 627, p. 104)

3. Keep this focus for a short time–up to five minutes. Then let it go. Do not worry that you have never been able to do this before. Let the universal energies help you.

You must not be concerned for their emergence, for this brings up the fear that the new ideas will not materialize, and so this negates your purpose. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 621, p. 72)

4.  Avoid focus on the things you do not want. You attract to yourself whatever you focus on, good or bad. As far as this process goes, it cannot distinguish between “positive” and “negative.” Beliefs in this system are neutral. Like attracts like. This does not mean that you can never have a wayward emotion such as anger or frustration. But you must realize that when you have those emotions they are giving you a clue about your beliefs. Don’t repress them; look at them and try to understand where they are rooted; then turn them around by choosing a wiser belief.

As you trust yourself more you will naturally express feelings, and their suppression will not bring about explosive reactions any more. They will come and go . . . Attention to your own stream of consciousness is highly important. This alone will help you to see in what areas you are denying impulses or giving yourself directions that lead to powerlessness. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 663, p. 344)

5.  Be happy. Have faith. Once you have set this process in motion, feel grateful that what you desire is on its way to you.

Make one physical gesture or act that is in line with your belief or desire. Behave physically, then, at least once a day in a way that shows that you have faith in what you are doing. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 657, p. 300)

6.  Remember that reality is created in the present moment or what Seth calls the “moment point.” This is the point of power in which Framework 2 and Framework 1 coincide.

At each of these points, what seems to be an isolated life is experienced. Just beyond those intersections, however, there is a more or less unitary and overall recognition of wholeness that ‘rides’ above them. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 668, p 376)

Creativity Will Shift Us to Higher Consciousness and Heal Our World, Part 2

Seth predicted that in the Unites States, for example, there would be a new transparency that would expose all of our structures and policies, revealing both greed and good intent. He said things would have to change in a financial way to repair great inequalities. In addition, Seth said that fanaticism and its results would be out in the open, as we’d have to admit is happening in today’s politics. All of these predictions have come true in our own time. Through the Internet, as well as through social media, greater transparency is thrust onto governments, businesses, and other organizations. These same technologies make communication instantaneous so that word can get out before “spin” can be applied.

Seth predicted that there would be grass-roots organizations springing up to make sure that “life has meaning” and that these groups represented the “beginnings of new journeys quite as important to the species an any sea voyage ever was as man searched for new lands.” (Dreams, ‘Evolution,’ and Value Fulfillment, Volume 2, Amber-Allen, 1986/1997, pp. 346-347.) I see in this prediction reference to groups like the Occupy Movement, Black Lives Matter Movement, and LGBT activism, to name a few.

Surprisingly, Seth even said that we would experience great planetary changes and extreme weather events, all of which are happening now.

There was for humankind, according to Seth, a strong probability that we would weather the storms of disruptions, chaos, and unpredictability that would come with the new transparency and we would create a vastly better world when it was over.

How exactly is this supposed to happen? Seth says it will happen through a leap in consciousness. As I said before, he claims that humans have latent abilities that will re-emerge, that will make humanity so different as to be almost unrecognizable as the same species. And he said that changes in consciousness were accelerating. Think of the leap in consciousness between cavemen and current humans–only now think of it happening quickly rather than over thousands of years.

Seth called this new adaptation “Probable Man.” What will make Probable Man so special and different is the ability to combine intellect with imagination (or creativity, if you will). He or she will be able to consciously create reality using wisdom and discrimination, which will come from adeptness at traveling inner reality.

Before this happens, however, the breakdown of all the false structures and erroneous beliefs that we have relied upon until now will have to be completed.

You may need some time before the old beliefs become less prominent and finally fall into their proper decay . . . But the inner natural leanings of all consciousness . . . now yearn for constructive change, clearer vision, to experience again their inherent sense of corporal spirituality, physical and psychic grace. They want to sense again the effortless motion that is their natural birthright. (Dreams, ‘Evolution,’ and Value Fulfillment, p. 537)

Creativity Will Shift Us to Higher Consciousness and Heal Our World, Part 1

When most people think of creativity what comes to mind are people using exceptional abilities to make music, art, literature, and design or perhaps they think of great idea-people like inventors, scientists, or entrepreneurs. And it’s true–creativity, inspiration, and imagination drive these accomplishments and these people.

When Seth speaks of creativity, however, it has an even broader meaning. He is talking about our life-force, vitality–that very thing that gives us our being, our will to live, to act, and to know.

This primal creativity applies to all people, not just some specially gifted ones and, according to Seth, also applies to animals, plants, and even things. (We’ll get to that later)

This creative thrust that is behind everything in our world comes from All That Is. We’ve talked about this before but it bears repeating. All that is, in an act of love, released those mental creations to become actualized and gave them the same ability to create worlds that It had.

Consciousness, which is what All That Is really is, transformed Itself into the many facets of nature, all beings, and into every molecule, cell, atom, and particle.

The universe is the natural extension of divine creativity and intent, lovingly formed, from the inside out–so there was consciousness before there was matter, and not the other way around. (Dreams, ‘Evolution,’ and Value Fulfillment, Volume 1, Amber-Allen, 1986/1997, p. 156)

An important characteristic of consciousness, Seth says, is that it operates as both waves and particles. (Today, we know from quantum physics that this is the actual nature of reality. Learn more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave%E2%80%93particle_duality

Seth says that being part of All That Is in its wave-like manifestation means that on one level, absolutely everything is connected to everything else and is able to communicate with and be aware of everything else.

This ability is something that we have forgotten, even though, at one time, in our distant history ancient people used this ability. At the core of virtually every great religion is a mystical tradition which embraces the idea of unity; this idea of a connected whole is an essential element of the Perennial Philosophy–a philosophy that reemerges throughout history in different centuries and cultures. (Read a bit here: http://www.centerforsacredsciences.org/publications/the-mystical-core-of-the-great-traditions.htm

In fact, Seth gave some interesting examples of this ability throughout his books. Here is one:

In those times, all species shared their dreams in a way that is now quite unconscious for your kind, so that in dreams man inquired of the animals also–long before he learned to follow the animal tracks, for example, where is there food or water? What is the lay of the land? Man explored the planet because his dreams told him that the land was there. (Dreams, ‘Evolution,’ and Value Fulfillment, Volume 1, p. 173)

So in this view nothing exists in isolation. Everything is connected.
