Guiding Thought

I allow myself to connect with my pure Inner Divine Heart of Oneness. I am aware of the expression of the Divine Heart through me, as me. I connect with my heart, and am aware of embodying its pure Love intention for All.  I am filled with Joy as I embrace my heart’s Love.


What are thoughts? Or, perhaps more to the point: are feelings thoughts? Are memories thoughts? Are physical sensations, like a gut instinct, thoughts? When people talk about thought being creative, what does that mean? Are thoughts generative? Do they have energy and power?

I do have some thoughts on this. I wonder a lot. I look for information and answers to my questions. I experiment. I practice. I observe.

What I am seeking currently is understanding the correlation between thought and manifestation, or more accurately, the correlation between spiritual thoughts and manifestation. Spiritual thoughts are those thoughts in the intangible realm–thoughts that the mind can conceive, but that do not have an immediate material corresponding reality–thoughts like Oneness, or Infinity, or Joy. How do these thoughts create reality; how do I recognize the manifestation of a thought of Oneness? You can see this is different than thinking, “I want a new TV”, and having a new TV given to you from out of the blue, or the like.

I know we can create material reality. There are lots of books out now about the law of attraction, about how to manifest, etc. What I want to know is how to create with the Divine, to know that what comes to me in material reality is manifesting from the highest, most loving, most  harmonious, most unifying thoughts. If I were to think, “I want a new TV”, I don’t Know that a new TV is the highest manifestation for all beings, all Life.

OK. You know by now that one of the purposes to the Journeys is to expose those underlying thoughts and impressions that may be “in conflict”, or may be less-loving, or “ignorant”. I have to tell you, that behind my writing today there are multiple little voices, virtually yelling at me, about how silly I am about all this. One of the most coherent voices is saying, “Everything is of the divine–you are creating separation, simply by saying there is a difference between material and spiritual manifestation”. And, there are other voices, less distinguishable, which feel like they are figuratively hitting me over the head, trying to show me something that I am not getting. So, this is good. Those thoughts/feelings are coming up and out, bubbling to the surface, so to say, so I can hear them and understand how I need to shift and transform them.

I know/feel that this is much more simple than I make it out to be. I have complicated it.

And, for your reference: what started this today was this sentence of the Guiding Thought:  I connect with my heart, and am aware of embodying its pure Love intention for All. This sentence feels comforting and relaxing–I can rest in peace, knowing that my heart is in charge, that everything I manifest comes from pure Love intention. I can have the courage to create anything, in any way, because everything I do comes from pure love intention. I don’t have to fear what I create. I can trust it. I can have the courage to explore, experiment, and try stuff, because ultimately it’s all about Love. And this is how I want to proceed. 


“Let it be”: Journey of Purpose 2.0 – Day 06

Guiding Thought

Today, I relax with confidence in the activity of my Inner Divine Mind. I allow it to express its true nature of all-sufficiency and all-supply in my life and affairs. Today, my only responsibility is to protect My Own Loving Presence from thoughts that block its flow. If I feel uncertain, I remember My Source; if I feel weak, I remember my Inner Flow; if I feel doubt, I assure myself of my Inner Knowing and I am free.



I’ve said before that all the Journeys are connected and inter-related–as I raise my consciousness regarding my purpose, I am also working on worth, healing, abundance, etc.; whatever is ready to evolve comes up for transformation. This is why I can do the Journeys in cycles and they are different every time. Different facets come up in relation to different things; they get deeper or broader each time.

Purpose is about abundance in the sense that abundance is about manifestation and experiencing a purposeful (fulfilled) third-dimensional reality.

A physical life that is aligned with Divine Will is full of both abundance and purpose.

At the beginning of 2016, I changed my mental approach to manifestation. Before this year, I thought of manifestation as trying to make something happen, trying to make something appear in my reality, and then feeling frustrated when it didn’t. Now, I have started to feel manifestation as a process (and I have no doubt that feeling these Journeys as a process has assisted with this).

What I mean by this is I need to be in its flow–the flow of manifestation–not the other way around. And how do I do that? I do that by being aware and understanding it, not imposing what I think into what I want it to do for me. I become aware of it as I pay attention to it, pay attention to my relationship and communication with it.

When I was doing this through my new (!) Recent (!) 2016 manifestation practice, all I felt was, “let it be”. Cliché or not, it fit. Everything about my will, my desire, and my wants, relaxed and felt the truth behind the words, “let it be”. Shortly after, a friend of mine said those words to me in a slightly different context, “let it be”. AHHHHHHHHHH... Now, the Guiding Thought is telling me to relax and go with it. OK!

I like when the Guiding Thought tells me to “do” something I am already doing. That does let me relax with confidence and trust the process.
