It is a new year, a time for reflection and creating new direction. How was your 2009? After chewing over this question for a time I decided that I was glad that 2009 happened as long as it never happens again… ever!
Have you ever heard the saying be careful what you wish for? Well that was my 2009, the year of getting what I asked for and then some.
It all started December 2008 when I attended the first SyncCreation Workshop in Utah (traditionally they are done internationally). Technically it started when I was asked to join the SyncCreation team and met Dr. Joe Gallenberger. From my first exposure with SyncCreation I have been on my seats edge…
… I tend to be a very left brain, facts, tangible, down to earth kind of guy. I have also had many spiritual experiences that defied definition. These spiritual experiences were put in the gray space of my mind under quantum physics (once again a left brain approach to spirituality). I didn’t try to duplicate these experiences and instead, spent more time trying to explain them using the beliefs I had all ready subscribed to.
That is when SyncCreation shook it up. SyncCreation has science backing it up; they use brain patterns and sound frequencies through headphones to create/duplicate intense, deep, stages of meditation. They then use these stages as the platform to manifest from while using the sea of humanity (people, Mentor, community, etc) to aid in the manifestation. They have conducted double blind tests; have a focus on results and have more then 20 years of research backing it up. I was hooked. Here was a window into the spiritual that had been laid out in such a way that it made it through my no Woo Woo filters.
Now before SyncCreation I was no stranger to Manifesting, the Law of Attraction and Psychokinesis. I went to the Great Life Foundation, read the Secret, saw What the Bleep Do We Know and the Matrix, and have spent many a years contemplating the universe. I thought that was a pretty solid foundation to understand the powers that be.
Understanding them, maybe, actually playing with them and using them in my life, not even close.
Okay I know I am getting a little off course. Let’s go back to the workshop in December 2008. It was Wednesday morning and I was in a room with some familiar faces, the people I work with, my wife Mimi, my business partner Justin and his wife Angie and a few other friends and acquaintances.
Then it began, 4 days of meditation, manifestation and awakening to the power that I hold, that we all hold…
…Can you meditate and completely clear your mind (cut out the brain chatter)?
After you cut out the brain chatter can you then expand your mind to receive messages and intuition?
Then, can you create a clear intention and a detailed pattern of it happening in your life all while, acknowledging, understanding and clearing the beliefs, fears, doubts and habits that prohibit it from coming into existence?
I couldn’t even get my mind clear let alone all of the other stuff before SyncCreation and it wasn’t from a lack of trying. But that is exactly what I did in that first workshop. No I didn’t do this with out some speculation. I had my fair share of doubt creep back up as I went away from the weekend. But I also had some solid experiences that I couldn’t deny (there is something about lighting a light bulb with your energy that makes theory reality!!!).
I put my notes, my experiences and my intentions on a shelf. I took them down from time to time to see where they were but it wasn’t until this December that it smacked me in the face. Here it was, exactly one year later and I was swimming in the manifestations of my intention.
I had my dream house, a room I could turn into a recording studio, a man shed, a huge cigar selection and some awesome vacations. It even got to the point were I was manifesting little things on a weekly basis like a new HD computer monitor, a mini fridge, finally figuring out a recording program, clothes, etc.
Yes these are all very material things, but my intention list had a tone of material things on it. But I also got the non material parts of my list, confidence in my business knowledge and skills, knowing what I am exceptional at, connecting with my son through things we both enjoy, connecting with my ancestry, creating new friends that expand my view of the universe and most importantly a beautiful, happy, healthy baby girl!!!
Sounds like a great year right? And it was. But it had a very high price. The universe listened and it came fast and hard. I have been sick more times this year then I have been in the past 8 years. I have had more stress then I can ever remember. I have had more challenges that pulled at my soul then should happen in a year.
Some might say the adversary stood up to challenge me and/or detour me from creating such a miraculous year. I however, do not believe that is the case. I do not believe there is any force trying to stop my progression. I instead believe that I asked for a ton of things and in order for them all to happen I had to clear out a ton of things to make room (beliefs, doubts, fears, energetic blocks, etc). I spent long hours accomplishing this and it took its toll on my health. I wanted a deeper connection with my family and ancestors and my grandfather died, not what I had in mind but it did create a deeper connection with my ancestry.
Yes 2009 was an epic year. Yes my list was accomplished both physical and spiritual. I am grateful for 2009 and it’s lessons and the results that I have to show from them. And I go into 2010 having learned that it is a horrible idea to buy a huge house that needs to be rehabilitated from top to bottom, while having a pregnant wife, working on 3 different companies as well as my own and with a whole list of intentions coming into fruition.
Once again, be careful what you wish for. You just might get it… and all at once!
During this recent SyncCreation workshop that happened last week. I decided that this year I am focusing only on a few manifestations; a super human immune system, a very peaceful, calm, complete household, a deeper spiritual and physical connection with my wife, spending time every day with my daughter and son, catching more fish, deepening my connections with my friends and family, making music and providing more value to others and receiving abundance in return.
You might notice there are a lot less material things this year. No it isn’t because I became more enlightened, it is because I got most of my material list done last year. Go ahead manifest the material, get the list of things that you desire in your life. That way you can join me in manifesting some of the finer things in life like health, connections with friends and family and creating art all from the comfort of the material things you have all ready manifested… I will be J
Bring it on 2010… nice and easy.
