Always Express What is True for You

Always Express What is True for You

Today I’m in the mood to speak to a short quote from Neville Goddard’s book, Your Faith is Your Fortune. For a longer excerpt, refer to my post, Neville’s Explanations Changed Me. 

“Every man automatically expresses that which he is conscious of being.  Without effort or the use of words, at every moment of time, man is commanding himself to be and to possess that which he is conscious of being and possessing.”

Like most mature adults there have been hundreds of occasions through the years when I noticed that other people viewed me differently than the way I saw myself. In my mind I positioned these times as markers and opportunities. I knew these reflections were signs I was becoming the free, wise, loving, adventurous and successful woman my inner self has always mentored me to be.

Always Express What is True for You

I was reared by educated, hard-working farming parents who didn’t have a racially prejudiced or bigoted bone in their bodies.  They were reserved and had high standards for courtesy. They expected their children to be like them. While loving, mom and dad were not demonstrative and had zero idea how to encourage me and my brothers to use and develop our imaginations. I’m highly intuitive. I’m also an extrovert who is perceiving and feeling. My mom, bless her heart, was flummoxed with how to cope with a child and teen like me. Two statements of mom’s etched themselves into the walls of our family home and the minds who comprised my nuclear family: “Wendy Joan, get your head out of the clouds” and “Wendy Joan, please come back to earth”.

Advantage or not, from a young age I’ve always been able to see when things didn’t line up in other people. Hypocrisy and double standards were glaringly obvious to me. At times I got myself into trouble socially for pointing out these discrepancies because I lacked the skill to deliver my words in a way that rang true without hurting.  It took a lot of years to develop the right knack.

My mom insisted that I would do better in the world and avoid disappointment if my dreamer was neutralized.  I couldn’t agree. She did, however, get across that I could keep what I saw to myself, which I admit was a valuable skill to learn.

I AM a dreamer and seer. Period. I’m a lot of other things to other people (friend, wife, coach, mentor, teacher, leader, visionary, role model, brat), but these two words, “dreamer” and “seer”, represent who I am in my core.  When I look in the mirror, this is who looks back, and she lets me know she is my capacity to succeed at everything that I take on.

Do feel free to ask questions.

With love,

Wendy

I Set a New Vibratory Tone for My Life

I Set a New Vibratory Tone for My Life

Yesterday I said I would elaborate on passages quoted from Neville and give personal examples from my life. I’ll speak to one of those quotes today.

If you sometimes doubt that you orchestrate each of your life experiences, not just the juicy, delicious ones, please read this quote from Neville.

“Man’s chief delusion is his conviction that there are causes other than his own state of consciousness. All that befalls a man – all that is done by him – all that comes from him – happens as a result of his state of consciousness. A man’s consciousness is all that he thinks and desires and loves, all that he believes is true and consents to. That is why a change of consciousness is necessary before you can change your outer world.”

I have always known that each of my life experiences is a reflection of my inner emotional environment. It was easy to admit I orchestrated good results. My understanding of cause and effect had to mature before I could take full ownership of poopy outcomes.

It was liberating to accept that I am the root (source) cause of my every experience. This level of ownership means I get to consciously choose what comes my way. It also means I get to commit to being conscious (aware, awake, mindful) and to practice, review, refine, celebrate and keep going. Here’s one personal example of a shift I made.

I Set a New Vibratory Tone for My Life

In mid-2013 I consciously chose to set a new vibratory tone for my life. By vibratory tone, I mean the feeling space that I wanted to always be present in my life. Two words captured the feeling I wanted: ease and easy. This vibratory tone was to act as a tuning fork for my thoughts, moods and behaviours and as a filter for all decisions, personally and professionally. I knew that I had to give this experiment the time it deserved – 2 years. If I could experience the vibratory tone that I wanted consistently for 2 years, I knew I would be well along the path to mastering vibration and could manifest whatever I chose going forward.

I succeeded. At first I felt like I had to be “on” 24-7, which is usual whenever I take on a new adventure. My life across all levels is easy and filled with ease and I am sure all who know me agree.

While there have been substantial examples of ease and easy showing up in my life, the coolest body of proof showed up recently. I went on a combined research trip/vacation to Costa Rica with a woman that I had only spent 3.5 hours with in person prior to departure. Everything – and I mean everything – went smoothly. Ease and easy served me and her as the tone for this adventure.  It was awesome. I’m so freaking pleased with myself.

I have made a fresh commitment. I’m in process with choosing two additional words to layer into and enhance my vibratory tone for the next two years. I’ll let you know when I have chosen them.

With love,

Wendy B

Neville’s Explanations Changed Me

Neville’s Explanations Changed Me

Neville Goddard was born in 1905 and passed in 1972. His career in mysticism lasted 40 years through which time he published ten books. 

As mentioned in my yesterday’s post, it was a year ago that a client loaned me her then new and unread copy of Neville’s, The Power of Awareness.

Neville’s Explanations Changed Me

I knew about Neville yet had not read any of his books, so this was my test drive. I imagined his approach to be similar to that of peers from his era: Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, Wallace D. Wattles etc. I was partially correct.  As a mystic, Neville Goddard’s explorations and explanations go meters deeper than practitioners of new thought.

I read, The Power of Awareness, three times, highlighting points on every page and making notes for myself. I fell in love with Neville’s thinking. I wanted more. After searching I discovered that a treasure of a collection called, Neville Goddard – The Complete Reader, was available for purchase through Amazon and other bookseller sites; I bought one.

As a coach who specializes in law of attraction I was overjoyed to discover in Neville’s body of work elegant, sophisticated and clear explanations about consciousness, God, imagination and manifesting. Together, these explanations caused shifts in me that both simplify and enrich the way I interact with and experience life.

I like Neville’s no-nonsense approach. Here’s an example from, The Power of Awareness.

“Man’s chief delusion is his conviction that there are causes other than his own state of consciousness. All that befalls a man – all that is done by him – all that comes from him – happens as a result of his state of consciousness. A man’s consciousness is all that he thinks and desires and loves, all that he believes is true and consents to. That is why a change of consciousness is necessary before you can change your outer world.”

I also like that Neville was a master of consciousness and taught others what he knew using uncomplicated language. I paid close attention to Neville’s words; I knew his teachings held insights I had been waiting for. Here’s a passage from, Your Faith is Your Fortune. 

“Every man automatically expresses that which he is conscious of being.  Without effort or the use of words, at every moment of time, man is commanding himself to be and to possess that which he is conscious of being and possessing.”

“This changeless principle of expression is dramatized in all the Bibles of the world.  The writers of our sacred books were illumined mystics, past masters in the art of psychology. In telling the story of the soul, they personified this impersonal principle in the form of a historical document both to preserve it and to hide it from the eyes of the uninitiated.”

“Today, those to whom this great treasure has been entrusted, namely the priesthoods of the world, have forgotten that the Bibles are psychological dramas representing the consciousness of man; in their blind forgetfulness, they now teach their followers to worship its characters as men and women who actually lived in time and space.”

“When man sees the Bible as a great psychological drama, with all of its characters and actors as the personified qualities and attributes of his own consciousness, then – and only then – will the Bible reveal to him the light of its symbology. This Impersonal principle of life which made all things is personified as God. This Lord God, creator of heaven and earth, is discovered to be man’s awareness of being.

These passages plus a third quote from The Power of Awareness caused me to commit to deeper study and practice of the principles he taught.

I especially appreciate the easy way Neville explains God, consciousness and therefore you, me and every human being.   

“There is no one that is not all that is, for consciousness, though expressed in an infinite series of levels, is not divisional. There is no real separation or gap in consciousness. I AM cannot be divided. I may conceive myself to be a rich man, a poor man, a beggar man or a thief, but the center of my being remains the same, regardless of the concept I hold of myself. At the center of manifestation, there is only one I AM manifesting in legions of forms and concepts of itself and “I am that I am.”

“I AM is the self-definition of the absolute, the foundation on which everything rests. I AM is the first-cause substance. “I AM is the self-definition of God.”

“I AM is a feeling of permanent awareness. The very center of consciousness is the feeling of I AM. I may forget who I am, where I am, what I am, but I cannot forget that I AM. The awareness of being remains, regardless of the degree of forgetfulness of who, where and what I am.”

If you got to this point in my post I’m guessing that the wheels of your mind are spinning in delightful ways and that you will appreciate having some time to reflect on Neville’s words.

In my next post I will share a couple of ways that my life changed as soon as I started reading Neville.

With love,

Wendy

Launching My New Blog

Launching My New Blog

Today I wakened at 2:30 am, knowing instinctively it was time to launch a blog site called, “Feel it Real with Wendy B”.  Here is my inaugural post.

December of 2014 was a life-changing month for me.  A treasured client loaned me a book by Neville Goddard called, The Power of Awareness. From the moment I picked up Neville’s book I could feel myself changing. I slipped into a lighter, brighter, more conscious and radiant version of myself.  I felt my heart and my spirit grinning and knew I’d gifted myself with the opportunity to elevate my skills and accelerate the speed and accuracy with which I create with ease.

I’ve coached for 30+ years. Since 2011 my specialty has been helping women to learn about and work with law of attraction to bring about what they want consciously and systematically…and I’m good at it.  Neville’s work appeared because it was time for me to take both my and my clients’ expertise to a higher and more sophisticated level.

I’d heard about Neville Goddard but had not previously read his books. Neville was one of the late, Dr. Wayne Dyer’s mentors and his influence shows in Dr. Dyer’s book, “Wishes Fulfilled”.

By mid-December last year I knew I wanted to take a 4-month sabbatical to study Neville’s work, embody the principles taught, practice, adjust and practice some more. By far, this was the best gift I have given myself

I have been quietly teaching small groups of women some of what I have learned through two 4-week courses I wrote titled, “Advanced Manifesting Principles” and its big sister, “Feeling My Dream Alive”.  I will continue to do this in 2016 starting in January.

I will use this blog,  “Feeling it Real With Wendy B”, to share with you some of the cool stuff I have learned, how I’ve applied the principles to my life and tidbits about the remarkable experiences that have resulted.

Much love,

Wendy B
