Charging Yourself for Manifesting

Create your vision and project it out into a bubble in front of you. Then feel yourself filling with divine golden light from above. Once you are completely full from head to toe–every cell–then begin directing that energy across the divide into your bubble. Let the bubble fill up fully with your projected golden light, while your light diminishes. Think of it as if you were filling a gas tank from a pump. As the amount in the pump diminishes, the quantity in the gas tank increases. Now you’ve imbued your dream or vision with divine light coming from Source, through you and into it. This is called Charging Your Vision

Part two – Clear Your Cache

Clear Your Cache
(Second of two parts) 

In the last newsletter, we looked at ways to “clear your cache” emotionally and spiritually. In this second of two parts, we explore how to “clear your cache” in your physical sphere. 

  • Your Work Files – Now we begin to get into the physical changes you can make in your environment. The Universe abhors clutter, so in order to attract new possibilities you must start discarding what is no longer of use and straightening, organizing, filing and labeling what you are keeping. So begin with your work files. De-clutter your office and make space for new opportunities that can offer greater prosperity.  
  • Your Personal Files—Tackle the personal files at your home or create files so that you don’t have piles of confusing documentation. Label by content and if desired, by year. This should apply to your financial documentation, your household records, the articles you wish to keep stored, your recipes, your personal identification documents and passports, your contracts, your mortgage docs, your warranties, your correspondence, your legal matters. However, check with your accountant to see how long you should keep financial information—some say five years and others say seven. Get rid of anything older and keep shedding the older information each year.     
  • Your Drawers and Cupboards—This is where clutter accumulates and you are not even aware of it until something falls out on your head or the drawer is so full you can’t close it. Before it gets to that point, go through every drawer or cupboard in your house and start tossing old, useless items—including the ones you can’t even figure out why you got them in the first place! This means food pantries, kitchen drawers, bedroom drawers, bathroom cabinets, etc. Don’t just toss, organize! Put like things together. For example, I have now reorganized all of my Band-aids into separate containers based on size and shape. Now there’s less time sorting them to find the one I want. Not only will you and the Universe “breathe” easier once you’ve done this, you’ll have more time to spend on joyful activities instead of looking for things you want or need amidst the mess.    
  • Your Home, Garage & Attic—Junk the junk! That’s job one. Then start eliminating things that don’t fit your life any longer…furniture that you don’t like but once belonged to your grandparents, design features that are out of style, colors and objects that are no longer in keeping with where you are spiritually, items that take too much care, things that don’t work and you fantasize you’ll fix someday,  pieces of your old life with ex-husbands and ex-wives, etc. Think of it as “housecleaning for happiness.” 
  • Your Yard—Your yard is a reflection of the state of your life. Let you neighbors and the Universe see a lovely space free of weeds, unkempt plants, overgrown trees, trash, old equipment and tools, children’s toys or anything that takes away from order, cleanliness and beauty. 
  • Your Clothes –You have probably been exhorted previously to clear your old clothes out of your closet for spiritual as well as space-making reasons. This is definitely an important “clear your cache” action. First let go of all those items that you no longer like, then the ones that don’t fit, then the ones that don’t flatter. Ask yourself honestly if you can still see yourself wearing each piece in the next year. If not, put it in the “to-go” pile. This includes shoes, belts, purses and accessories. When done, organize the remainder by color and category. You’ll save time if you always know where something is because it’s where it belongs.  
  • Your Old Medicines, Vitamins and Exercise Equipment—Don’t clutter your medicine cabinets, counter tops and home with old out-outdated stuff you don’t or can no longer use. If you bring in new, commit to using it and don’t let it go to waste.   
  • Your Old Books—Most of us hold onto books just because we paid for them and received some educational or enjoyment value. But books can simply be an added drain on your space and your spiritual shelf if you just accumulate them. So go through and determine which ones really hold value for you today and which you can pass along to someone else who might appreciate them. You may find that you have outgrown your old collection of James Bond novels, or that your current spiritual values don’t mesh with books from your days as a practicing Catholic, or that books about war don’t reflect who you are today.  

So “Clear Your Cache” and open the way for new miracles!

Assorted Wisdom (Clear Your Cache)

Clear Your Cache
(First of two parts)

You’ve probably had the experience where you go to a web page that you know has been updated or changed, but your browser is still showing you the old page? You seek out your computer expert to find out why and he tells you the only way to see the revised page is to “Clear Your Cache.” This means you must clear out all the old programs, retained pages or temporary pages held in the browser memory so your new pages can appear. 

The Universe operates very much on the same principle. As spiritual beings, we are charged with releasing the old before the new can be seen, experienced and enjoyed. Do you really want to get stuck in life looking at old pages and doing the same things over again, suffering the same fate? Do you want to live with what you have or clear the way for something better, new or exciting? New energy fills an energy vacuum. 

If you are going to “Clear The Cache” from your own life, you will need to look at many areas and see what you can expel in favor of leaving space for what shows up next. So let’s take a look at some of the areas that should be up for review. 

  • Your Belief System—This is the most critical sticking point in your personal browser! With all those old pages playing in the background, you’ll find yourself re-living your experiences again and again. Look closely at what beliefs keep you grounded where you are, clear them out and consciously replace each of them with a positive belief that opens the door for joy, prosperity, success, generosity, wonder, beauty, peace and love. Then you can truly fly!
  • Your Attachments—Holding fast to old attachments means that you are anchored in one place. The attachments have claimed you. Look at releasing attachments in general, and those that specifically no longer serve you. One way to do that is to first imagine what life would be like without that attachment. If it feels freer and happier in your imagination, then cut it loose! You can do this either in an emotional sense of attachment or a physical one where you give it away, sell it or destroy it.  
  • Your Relationships—It is often difficult to clear out unhealthy or withered relationships, but you won’t have the emotional and energetic bandwith for new ones if you’re still pouring your soul into relationships that don’t prosper you. Look at relationships in every aspect of your life to see what needs jettisoning— employees/employers/colleagues/business partners/clients, friends, family members, lovers, spouses, etc. And while this may not always mean completely cutting off all contact, it does mean stop feeding energy there. Spiritually “clear your cache” and move on.  
  • Your Habits—If you look closely, you will undoubtedly discover a number of significant habits that are constricting your life. These are like little straight jackets that give you no room to move beyond the habit or rut you’ve created. These habits might be physical (smoking, being a four-hour-a-night couch potato, etc.), emotional (eating when you feel depressed, stressing when your work load increases, etc.) or spiritual (mistrusting everyone, being unkind, ignoring inner guidance, etc.) Wherever you have patterned behaviors that do not allow you the freedom to be a whole, happy, self-actualized individual, then you need to start the clearing process.  
  • Your Attitudes Toward Yourself—Self-esteem issues are all signs of unnecessary judgments against yourself. This leads to actions and behaviors that reflect your feelings of unworthiness toward self. Oftentimes this manifests in failure to take care of your physical body, your emotional needs, your personal care, your home environment and your spiritual wellbeing. Look closely at each of these areas, start wiping clean the slate and allow in new attitudes of compassion, care and commitment. 
  • Your Attitudes Toward Others—Have you engaged in any of these actions or emotions in the past months—unkindness, anger, mistrust, envy, condescension, intolerance, disregard, disloyalty, betrayal, condemnation, gossip? If you have, then you have not come from a place of love and compassion. It’s time to clear the cache, start over and begin consciously reaching for your love and compassion switch before you act out.   
  • Your “Take It For Granteds”—Too often our senses are dulled by our familiarity with an experience, a thing or a person that we take for granted because of its ongoing presence in our lives. How unfortunate! Because we then miss the delight, the joy, the wonder, and the gratitude of looking at something familiar with new eyes—as if it was brand new! So apply your cache-clearing skills to the familiar and see once again the wonder and the beauty of it! See that rose in your garden as if it was the first one ever! Appreciate your child’s desire to play catch as if it was the first time and not the third this week! Be grateful for having such a skillful hairdresser that makes your color so perfect that everyone thinks you’re a natural redhead.

Manifest Message

Tensions come from a block or imbalance in a flow of energy within us.  When we hold onto the feelings that are moving through us, the pent up energy creates blockages and imbalances that result in tension and pain.  When we allow a feeling, as energy in our body, to flow naturally through us without resistance from holding onto the feeling by identifying with it, then we can move with that energy and allow it to guide us through our life experience.
