Adventures of Spirit

My spiritual adventures and manifesting discoveries

Just Going For It

Just as this post title states, I am just going to start writing without knowing the outcome here. My blog posts have been a bit sparse and slow in coming, as my time has been more devoted to school and continuing to let go of barriers I have placed around my capacity for happiness.  Manifesting a happier, healthier life is always an interesting process.  Every time I run into a wall of resistance, I know it could take a good amount of detective work to figure out what this barrier is constructed of.  It can be upsetting at times. However, if I keep my intentions clear and I am willing to go through the emotions, my guidance will get me to my destination.  No matter what the actual goal or outcome is, this always leads to a deeper understanding of myself and a deeper capacity for love.

My latest detective work revolved around me allowing a wonderful, flexible, high-paying job I can perform from my new home. I was told by two highly developed psychic/energy healers that this will certainly come to pass.  In a spiritual card reading, I also pulled two cards for myself that confirmed this outcome. I have no doubt this manifestation will come into my life path soon.  It is also interesting to note that both the psychic/energy readings and my card reading brought to my attention that I need to give this desire over to God and stop overthinking things. In other words, let go of the paddles and go downstream, as Abraham Hicks so often says. I was only getting in my own way and causing myself more dis-ease and illness.

Another bit of guidance I received from the Abraham Hicks cards, was to tell a different story of my past. A book I  am currently reading called The Highly Sensitive Person, by Elaine N. Aron, Ph. D., also suggests how to retell stories of upsetting events from your past. For example, instead of thinking I nearly failed out of my senior year in high school because I didn’t do my work and I missed a lot of school days, I could reframe it as I was really suffering through a massive amount of depression and personal pain, and my body and mind was experiencing sensory overload both from home and school. How could I expect to handle the pressures of my senior year when all my energy was going toward survival. After taking the initial blame away I could finally reframe it as, I did the best I could with the internal and external resources I had available at the time. Perhaps then it wasn’t all bad as I did accomplish a great deal despite my challenging circumstances and it really is alright. Everything I experience is essentially good because it leads me toward growth and self-discovery. My resulting capacity for love is huge! So really, I succeeded in my goal of developing myself as a spiritual teacher.

Through this current discovery process, the more I let go, the more I gain. I tend to be rigid in my routines and expectations for myself and need to remember there is no such thing as linear time, it is all happening at once in endless realities I am choosing at each instant of my existence. There is no need to worry. I can ALWAYS choose something better and it is NEVER too late.

At first thought, the idea of just going for it would suggest action, but the more I relearn the art of manifesting, the more I realize it is about relaxing into love and taking inspired action when it feels best to do so. And by that I mean, go about your day as you would blessing it with ease and harmony, and when you feel that delicious inkling to just do something you have been wanted to do or a sudden inspired impulse, by all means, do it! The outcome is usually joyful and exciting or just a feeling of satisfied relief. I picture it as turning around to face front, relaxing your death grip on your oars, and enjoying what is right in front of you while directing your boat with ease when necessary or when wanted. The first step though is always just relaxing. I also see myself as a child learning to float of my back, head back, arms out, belly slightly up, and just breath…that relaxes me just thinking of it.

Evolve or Die

This topic grabbed my attention a few weeks ago at a Science of Mind service.  The reverend was speaking candidly about how he came into his path of ministry.  I do not remember much of the details of his story, but at a critical point in his journey, he was told you either evolve into where your spirit is guiding you or you suffer from your resistance.  I found it both a funny and hard-hitting statement about the constant change of life and how we handle it.

The rather dramatic topic made me think of all the times in my life, which is more than I would like to admit, when I thought I knew better than my spirit about where I should be headed next.  Even as I write this, I am experiencing an interesting phenomenon.  Usually, once I have my topic, the energy of the words flows through me and onto the screen in a fairly free-flowing and cohesive manner. Today, I am distracted and feeling rather distant.  Maybe it is the rainy weather.  Maybe it is a bit of writing fatigue, as I have just started an English Composition course to continue my education.   Maybe I am now over thinking things as I write; worrying about grammar, punctuation, and style.  Whatever is happening here, I am just letting myself off the hook today. I am evolving, rather than struggling.

I fear perhaps in my life right now, I am not really listening to myself.  I still hesitate and struggle to go where I know my spirit is taking me.  I am stubborn to forgive and move forward with certain aspects of my life.  I hold harsh judgements of where I currently am.  Sometimes, when this happens, you can sense you are on the cusp of change.  So, I am letting this be an awkward and raw writing experience.  Perhaps I am not exploring spirituality today, so much as my own psyche.  I can feel where I want to go, but am not fully trusting of the way things will unfold.  This is past residue from other attempts I have made, when my belief system was such, that I fell back practically to where I started.

Evolving then, is rarely a smooth and easy experience.  It certainly can be, of course, but at certain points along the way you run into these giant brick walls that seem to go on for miles, with no foreseeable way to be scaled. This is where I think the world’s consciousness is currently at.  We are perhaps realizing physically overcoming the obstacles in front of us is not the answer, nor was it ever meant to be.  The point of life is NOT to struggle.  The point of life is to be happy.  The answer to our prayers is not half way across the world or the conclusion of a tumultuous task or journey, but it is the steady, calm knowing within. This does not mean hard work and effort are not meaningful, for when these things are done because you truly love to do them, it becomes a whole powerful energy unto itself.

Evolving can be done in big grand gestures, small graceful movements, or anywhere in between.  I tend to allow my personal evolution to come in smaller movements, as my analytical and observant nature requires more processing time.  However, I know that as I evolve those fears will dissipate, for I will be more centered and sure of the nonphysical mind that guides me and not afraid to take the occasional giant leap.

What I thought I wanted is not what I wanted…

I thought I wanted a steady full time job with benefits, going to the same place every day, seeing the same people, doing the same thing. I wanted to have reliable pay, and spend less gas money; and since all Americans are required to have medical benefits now, why not? Well, I can say it is better than any of my previous run of the mill office positions I have had. I have great coworkers, a nice location, a good looking building, and I am actually noticed and acknowledged by the upper management and executives. I can’t really complain too much, plus the pay is decent. It really was the answer to my prayers, temporarily.

How is it that our desires and preferences change so frequently? How is it one morning we like ice cream, heavy metal, and feel like running 10 miles and the next morning we prefer classical music, fruit, and yoga? It’s been said that the only constant in life is change. Change is ever present, from birth to death, back to the spirit world and on we go. It is the “thing” from which we evolve. The only constant is the very core of who we are, our God-center, our higher self, our universal consciousness. Bashar says there is no such thing as time. We are constantly choosing different realities, millions of times per second and that is what makes up our “time”. He likens it to a movie reel, where each still frame creates a moving picture, a story of our life.
I don’t mean to reach so far out to delve into my idea, but I guess it all comes down to our constant choices of reality. What is real for us? What do we want to be real for us? And how do we change it?

I often times get frustrated because being a deliberate creator seems like so much work, so much studying and learning. I moan and groan to myself, to others. I buy into other people’s realities that aren’t so great. But somehow I keep redetermining my power as a manifester.
The most important thing I have learned upon my journey in this lifetime is do not put any limits on the ways in which you can create what you want. Try as many techniques as makes you happy because each one builds upon the other even if they seem unrelated or conflicting.
So what do I really want? In the short term, to be a successful artist. In the long term, to never stop creating while developing the most peaceful world I can and to be happy of course!

Now is the time to take powerful, positive action!!! I do not regret getting this job because it has succinctly led me to this conclusion. The signs are becoming more obvious as to where I will be next and I am more than ready to delve into that journey. Instead of creating a problem out of my not so preferred current reality choices, I am building upon what is already here. Pretty soon, knowing I am wanting change will be a springboard to the next level of my existence.
My third eye is buzzing, my heart is fluttering, my body is yearning.
Happy manifesting!

Celebrate Your Wow Moments!!!

Taking time to celebrate your wow moments gives you complete freedom to be who you are as well as everyone else to be who they are.

This topic came to me after listening to Some Bashar videos.  Bashar is an entity channeled by Darryl Anka, similar to Abraham channeled by Esther Hicks, but more technical and scientific.  He delivers the same basic message of focusing your thoughts and feelings passionately on what you are wanting, but if you have ever wondered about the human concept of time and how our world is structured, he is excellent for fulfilling that curiosity.


This is something I have to remind myself of often, for if some amazing realization or accomplishment occurs and you do not “milk it” as Abraham says, the positive flowing energy can pass you by.  Mentally I understand the benefit of doing this, but it is challenging not to buy into the mainstream habit of celebrating your negative dramas.  Even when I am in the midst of this negative celebration, I try to get quiet and listen to find a gentle way to bring myself back into the positive celebrations.  I am currently in the midst of a negative celebration.  I have not been honoring my creative self or taking steps to further my creative career and the universe has been subtly reminding me of what my higher self is seeking.  This inner imbalance has manifested itself not only physically, which I decided to medicate by getting prescription pharmaceuticals and continue to ignore the inner guidance I am receiving, but now it is manifesting through a deeper unhappiness.  So after listening to Abraham this morning, I decided to follow one of their suggestions.  I wrote down what I want in my life as well as what I want to be doing.  This is what came about.


I want people I am in harmony with around me; meaning people who help me to be in alignment with source.  I want an atmosphere that is soothing and uplifting and joyful and freeing.  I want to be doing that which enlivens me and feels joyful and magical.  When I create something, it is exciting and fun and a reciprocal gift.  I want to find clarity about my desires.  I want to let go of the resistance.  I am feeling I want to take the shackles off that I have placed on myself to “fit in” and ‘be normal”.  I want to feel how source wants me to feel.  No restrictions, no pressure.  That newer, higher functioning, leading edge thought process.  I want to speak out in ways that others will understand and be myself.  I want to trust my desires and guidance that I receive.  I want to let go!

I am so tired of holding on; I want to let go of that slippery jagged rock, with the rushing, cold water hitting me and stinging me, making me cry and flail and doubt everything I am.  I want to turn my head and focus on the glimmer of light that I see up ahead.  I want to trust that if I let go and just let what  is unpleasant ride itself out, up ahead is the most beautiful, pleasant, fun, enlivening stream where I can relax and heal and reclaim my well-being.

Right now I am getting what I am fearing because I am turned away from source.  I am seeing darkness and believing lies, even if there are others who bring sparks of light  to those lies and they are beacons of hope, it is still an upstream focus.  However, upstream is not bad, it is only the unnatural direction to go.  So you are worn out, blinded, hungry, and lost, when all you have to do is turn around, let go, and open your being to the abundance that is there for you.  That is what I want, that is who I want to be.

I am free.  I am me.  No one can stop me from being me.

Dear heavenly father  and mother, the source of all that is, guide me and help me to hear that guidance, see with my true eyes and love with my true heart.


The more we can realize our  wow moments and what they have to teach, the clearer our guidance will become.  And the next step is to take the inspired action.  How do we know it is inspired?  Because your heart and head will sing in harmony.
