A Reason to Smile

A Reason to Smile

Wrestling with angels, Or, spiritual, but not religious???

posted by B. Dave Walters

Let me start off with a couple of disclaimers here.
First, nobody KNOWS where we come from, or what happens when we die; firm belief is not the same as empirical knowledge. And in the vacuum of absolute knowledge, all we are left with are beliefs; or put another way, opinions. So my position is a simple one: believe whatever you like. As long as it fills you with peace and happiness, and isn’t hurting anyone else, keep doing it.

Second, most of my articles are written from a Judeo-Christian perspective, since it is how I was raised, and still is the most common in the world today. I am fully aware of how many other belief systems there are out there (and we’ll get into a lot of them), but for now I have to write for the largest audience.

Now, I had intended to take on Creationism today, considering I already took on Scientism here but I decided to climb that mountain on another day. Suffice it to say, anyone who has any questions can shoot me an email and we’ll talk.

Instead I’d like to talk about another relatively new trend: labeling oneself “spiritual, but not religious”. The implication is usually of some sort of elevated spiritual perception that puts them above the ‘sheep’ of Organized Religion.

On the surface this is quite noble; and my own spiritual leanings put a person’s inner discovery of God above all else. Unfortunately, people who have rejected mainstream religion usually seem to do so out of a sense of rebellion against their past, rather than a genuine spiritual blossoming.

For example, in speaking with my anti-Christian brothers and sisters (as opposed to simply non-Christians) I usually find their break with the Church came after some form of ill treatment at the hands of allegedly Christian people. Or, the undeniable hypocrisy we see played out in the world by people using Scripture to justify hatred, intolerance, murder and war.
But I would submit that you can’t judge Christianity, or any Faith on the merits of it’s followers. No one has the market cornered on what God wants, and that is assuming God wants anything! I find all too often being “spiritual, but not religious” is a cop-out; an easy excuse to avoid the hard questions of life. Of course, each individual has to decide in their own heart and mind why they feel how they do, but in this life there is only one thing I can say for absolute certain: God is worth the effort.

There is nothing you can accomplish in this world more important than forming a relationship with your Creator, whatever that looks like. Maybe you’ll be a church going Christian, a Temple visiting Jew, or a fire-worshiping Zoroastrian. Maybe your “church” will be a quiet walk in the woods…whatever gets you that inner connection is the path you should follow.

Take the time to ‘wrestle with God’. Pick up that dusty old Bible, Qu’ran, or Bhagavad Gita and crack it open; let the timeless wisdom flow through you. Open your heart and mind to the Infinite and It will open up to you.

Does that make sense?

Q&A: “How do we deal with people who are lying to us?” (VIDEO)

posted by B. Dave Walters

Question submitted via Formspring:
“How do we deal with people who are lying to us? And still be positive about it when we know that they are fooling us. Thanks Dave”

The first question is: how do you KNOW they are lying to you?
Is it something you can prove, like they tell you they didn’t eat the last piece of cake while you *saw* them eat it? Or they tell you they aren’t cheating on you, while you believe they are?

There is a world of difference between what you can empirically prove and what you simply believe (assume) to be true.
YouTube Preview Image
Assuming you are certain that you are being deceived (by them, and not just by yourself), the next step is to try and determine *why* they might be lying. Are they trying to avoid hurting you? Are they hiding what might be a pleasant surprise? Or maybe are they just afraid of what is going to happen once the truth comes out?
Because, I’ll let you in on a secret: the truth ALWAYS comes out.

Having an idea of why they might not be telling you the whole truth will help when you finally ask them about it, since it will prepare your mind to accept different explanations. Remember, for whatever reason, they believe lying is their only option; you’ll have to give them a new one.
YouTube Preview Image
Finally, sit down and talk to them…ideally face to face, and not by email or web chat.
Ideally sit down somewhere public, like a coffee shop so they can’t flip out or run away, but talk in private rather than not at all.

Ask them about the situation, and give them a chance to tell you the truth. If they lie again to your face, *don’t* call them a liar, but then ask them if it is how you suspect it really is. So to continue the earlier example, if they still say they didn’t eat the cake, ask them if they know who did it, or if maybe they ate it but didn’t realize it was the last piece. Basically give them a chance to tell you the truth.

Only then should you tell them what you know to be true; ideally frame it by saying “I’m not mad, but _____…and I want to hear your side of things”.

Here is the hardest part, though: really listen to what they have to say.

That’s why step two was to figure out reasons why they might be lying; otherwise you may be so caught up in how you think things are that you miss how they REALLY are.

Once the truth is out, you can communicate openly and deal with the real issue.
Does that make sense?

Q&A: “My boyfriend keeps women’s numbers in his wallet…” (VIDEO)

posted by B. Dave Walters

When a person shows you who they are...believe them the first time

Question submitted via Formspring:
“My boyfriend doesn’t listen to me at all especially when it comes to financial matters. I don’t trust me due to past issues and his womanizing. He tends to keep women numbers in his wallet then tells me they were there before he moved in?”

“When a person shows you who they are, believe them the first time”
-Maya Angelou

Once again, let’s review:
1. He doesn’t listen to you
2. You appear to be having some sort of financial issues, since why would you be upset that he doesn’t listen when things go well?
3. You live together, but apparently not for very long since he believes having just arrived is a cover story.
4. You don’t trust you (?) because of ‘past issues’.
5. You called him a womanizer.
6. He admits to womanizing (since he didn’t deny collecting the numbers).
7. You clearly don’t trust him. Why? You were snooping in his wallet.
YouTube Preview Image

The short answer is: break up.
The longer answer is the three pillars of a successful relationship are trust, respect, and communication; love is a byproduct of these three things.
And what is your relationship lacking? Trust, respect, and communication.

You don’t trust him because he cheated in the past, and you suspect he’s cheating now…and with good reason. You also don’t trust him in financial matters, perhaps rightly so. You don’t even trust *you* because of ‘past issues’ of some sort.
There’s no respect, because if he respected you he wouldn’t be trying to pick up other women, and you clearly don’t respect yourself or you wouldn’t put up with it. He also apparently doesn’t respect you enough to stop, since you said he ‘tends’ to keep women’s numbers, which would seem to indicate you’ve caught him doing it more than once. In this day of cell phones and computers it’s pretty easy to do dirt without getting caught, but he doesn’t seem to care enough to even cover his tracks.

And finally, you have no communication; and if you can’t communicate, you don’t have a relationship.
Now, in his defense, you say “he doesn’t listen to you”, but how are you communicating with him? Are you clearly and directly laying out your concerns, and suggestions for how you can improve, or do you nag and complain, or even worse, yell and scream? Same thing for the other women’s numbers, have you clearly told him how him doing this makes you feel and how much it hurts you? Or do you just complain…or worst of all, say nothing?

At any rate, you seem to have fundamental issues in all the areas that matter: trust, respect, and communication, so the solution remains the same: break up.
If he moved in for financial reasons rather than romantic ones, it may take some time; but make a plan and get out as soon as possible.
YouTube Preview Image

And if you’re thinking “but I love him”, you may want to ask yourself: why is it you feel like you can’t leave someone who doesn’t listen to you, lies, betrays your trust, and runs around behind your back? Since if he doesn’t care enough to cover up something as easy as getting numbers, who knows what else he is doing that you don’t know about.

And by the way: if you’re thinking “but he can change”, why would he? Right now he’s getting everything he wants and you just take it.

Take some time to focus on loving yourself first, and you’ll start to see that you deserve much better. If you are worried that you won’t be able to find a better man…cheating womanizers who don’t listen are pretty easy to come by.

Q&A: “I want to believe the world is good, but I see so much crime and fear” (VIDEO)

posted by B. Dave Walters

(Unedited) question submitted by Formspring:
“I want to believe that the world is good, but I see crime in my city and neighborhood. Is my fear attracting crime to me and my city? And how do I let go of this fear and have faith in a friendly universe?”
YouTube Preview Image
“What you resist, persists”
-Carl Jung

The short answer is, yes.
Yes your fear is attracting crime to you and your city.

The longer answer is, it is normal to be concerned with the things that seem scary or unfair in the world.
It also doesn’t help that the media focuses almost exclusively on what’s bad and terrible in the world. Have you ever heard the saying “if it bleeds, it leads?” Imagine you pass by a newsstand and you see a newspaper that says “sunshine and warm weather this weekend”, would you buy it?
But, imagine you see another one says “emergency weather service warnings for Saturday”…I bet you’d pick up that one!

The sad fact is, making you feel bad about yourself and the world we live in is a multi-billion dollar industry. The news, the fashion and makeup businesses, along with politics and even many churches are counting on you being dissatisfied with who you are and afraid of world you live in.

Remember, the Law of Attraction is ALWAYS working. If fear and crime is what you are focusing on, fear and crime is what will show up in your life. And, contrary to what you may have been told, in many significant ways the world is actually improving.
YouTube Preview Image
A massive new study titled “The State of the World 2011″ and published by an international think tank known as The Millennium Project recently laid out several ways life on Earth is advancing, and not just in the west. Life expectancies are up, education is up, world poverty is down, and crime in the US is down significantly since the 1980s.

Didn’t hear about any of this? Of course not, good news doesn’t sell papers!

You can’t control what other people say or do, but you can control what you focus on. There is nothing wrong with staying informed, but you don’t have to be buried in bad news. Find positive things to direct your attention towards, positive stories and news you can feel good about. It may be hard to find on local TV, but the glory of the internet is that you can find exactly what you’re looking for…good or bad!

One last thing: marketing guru Frank Kern talked about this very thing recently in his ‘State of the Internet Address’, and here is a paraphrase of what he ended with:
“The word hate has 184 mil search results…. fear has 151 mil results …. lot of people freaked out …. would seem we could market on hate and fear & ride the wave adopting that marketing bend but ….. the word hope has 476 mil results…. we don’t see in the media how much people want and believe in hope…. clearly people would much rather have hope… and the word love has 1 bil 830 mil results….

Q&A: Do you believe that there is “The One”? Because I think I lost him….

posted by B. Dave Walters

(Unedited) question submitted via Formspring
“Do you believe that there is “The One”? Because I think I lost him. He was everything I ever wanted, I let him go and now I realize there is no one like him. I don’t want anyone else. I try to get him back. He is my “rock” it’s so hard without him…”

First, let us break this down into pieces:
1. You had a guy who was everything you ever wanted.
2. He is your ‘rock’ and ‘there is no one like him’.
3. You ‘let him go’…but ‘don’t want anyone else’.
4. You try to get him back, and you ‘think you lost him’.

First and foremost: people come and go in our lives, there is no ‘One’.
As long as you have someone you can trust, respect, love and grow with who can trust, respect, love, and grow with you, then the relationship makes sense.

Notice, love is number three on that list. The reason why that is, is you can love someone who is TERRIBLE for you! Contrary to popular opinion, love is *not* enough to build a successful relationship on.
Respect is even more important in a healthy relationship, and trust is most important of all simply because you can’t respect someone you don’t trust.

Now, to your specific question:
You need to pull back from him and work on loving yourself, first.

The issue is you are trying to use him to fill a hole in yourself; something that comes up all the time with the entertainment industry here in Los Angeles. So many people are looking for outside affection, when the reality is the love you are looking for can only TRULY come from within.

Remember, you can *never * love anyone more than you love yourself, and you won’t let anyone else love you more than you love yourself. Even if they try, you’ll block it; and if you just rush back into the relationship, you’ll do it again.

Even IF you were to end up getting back together, you’ll have to start over completely from scratch: ground zero, day one. Like you just met, and are dating for the first time, because whatever issues caused you to break up in the first place are still there.

If you both agree to begin at the beginning, then you’ll need to work on your communication because if you can’t communicate, you don’t have a relationship. Remember, you cannot nag, complain, or guilt a man to doing what you want for long…if you are going to be together, be together; if you aren’t, don’t.

But to be clear: the first, second, and third things you need to focus on are YOU and getting your self esteem up. Once you do, he’ll either be willing to try again, or you can let him go and move on to find a guy who will.

Keep us posted on how it turns out.

Loving you; Or, thinking positive (VIDEO)

posted by B. Dave Walters

Question submitted via Formspring:
“I read a book about self-hypnosis and i was wondering if you can “manipulate” your conscious in order to reach your subconscious. Like, during work I am listening to music, how about I combine my own quotes like “I am beautiful” into the music.”

People have sent in questions about using hypnosis to ‘trick’ or ‘force’ the mind into doing what you want it to do a few times now, so much so that I made a video discussing this very thing.

In the videos below, you’ll find out:
The three parts of your mind, and how they function;
Why and how your mind has access to all the information in the Universe, and to God directly;
How to create better inner-communication, and a *guided meditation* that will allow you to know the answer to any question
YouTube Preview Image

A VERY important thing to remember, is the fact that everything lives in language.
When you look into the mirror, what do you say to yourself? Do you tell yourself how good you look, or how fat your back side is? Does noticing you need to lose a few pounds motivate you to work out, or does it make you go eat a gallon of ice cream?

You want to pay attention to your inner dialog, and be as nice to yourself as possible. Remember, your subconscious mind is like a 5 year old with a mind like a super computer; it remembers EVERYTHING, and takes it all 100% literally.

Yes, weaving your own affirmations and positive sayings into the music can help messages reach into your subconscious mind, and help the process of planting those new positive seeds. Something that is also especially powerful is to record yourself saying positive things, and play it at night while you sleep. The moments just before you to go bed and right when you wake up are your most psychologically suggestive times, so make sure you go to bed and wake up to happy thoughts, NOT worries!
YouTube Preview Image

The ultimate goal is to be in alignment with yourself; if you are playing “I am beautiful” over and over, but every time you look into the mirror you start thinking about how unattractive you are, it won’t work.
You have to consciously choose to focus on what’s best about you, even while you subconsciously program yourself to actually believe it…does that make sense?

Mastering the Law of Attraction; Or, creating what you *really* want! (VIDEO)

posted by B. Dave Walters

The world is in your hands

Hello!

So last time we made some goals, it’s time to put it into action.

Before we talk too much about making a plan, I want to clarify some things. I recently wrote an article on how to make the Secret / Law of Attraction work every time, and I think it’s relevant to what we are talking about. So I am going to repost it here, in case you never read it; and if you have, but aren’t manifesting what you want all the time…then read it again :)

 
YouTube Preview Image
Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.
Dale Carnegie

I’m writing this article in honor of all the wonderful new friends I have made from the Secret page on Facebook.

I recently wrote about how the Law of Attraction is one of 7 Universal Laws but I want to focus exclusively on the Law of Attraction, and more importantly how to make it work 100% of the time.

The first thing you have to realize, is that the Secret / Law of Attraction is not just positive thinking, and it is NOT some sort of trick or gimmick you use to grant wishes.

The Law of Attraction is you using the power you have been given to co-create your life with God. The key is to recognize to using of the Law is a Divine act, and by extension every thought you think are Divine and Creative acts.

The other important thing, is to realize the Law is *always * in effect, ALL of the time. Which means, if things are happening that you don’t want, what is it inside of YOU that is creating it?
Let me give you an example: let’s say you decide to manifest a sum of money, say $1,000 to pay your rent. When you think about it, do you think of how great it will be to have that money, how grateful you are for having a place to live, and family and friends to share it with? Do you think of how fortunate you are to live in a time and place where you can enjoy all the luxuries and conveniences you have that Kings and Queens would have killed to possess?

Or, do you worry about what will happen if you don’t pay the rent, or how you’ll get kicked out if you pay it late, or even how silly you’ll feel if the money doesn’t manifest?
YouTube Preview Image
Unless you are totally focused on the positive outcome, it will not manifest. The Secret / Law of Attraction is like sunlight; it’s all around you, all the time. Being conscious of it, and using it to consciously co-create your life is like using a magnifying glass to concentrate that light into a laser focus.

I wrote previously about every Human Being has 4 bodies, and I said I’d write in the future about how we have 3 minds. Well, I still don’t have time to go into it fully right now (I promise to soon!) but I do want to point out one thing.

One of our minds is the subconscious mind, which I’m sure you’re familiar with; the subconscious runs things like our heart beat and breathing. More importantly, it holds all of our memories and dreams, and is your link to God in prayer, meditation, or when using the The Secret / Law of Attraction.

The most important thing you need to know about the subconscious, is that it is like a little child; it takes EVERYTHING personally. If you say something to yourself like “I am so STUPID; I can’t believe I did that!”, or “I am fat and ugly, no one will ever love me”, or “who am I to want to be wealthy; my friends and family are poor, I am going to be poor”, or even “if anyone knew I was into the Law of Attraction stuff they’d all laugh at me”, then your subconscious will take that to be *literally * true.

This is why I’ve said in the past that you can’t afford the luxury of one negative thought, not even one. Because you have a permanent record that is always recording, and more importantly bringing you what you think about.

YouTube Preview Image

See, many of us sit down for 5 minutes and dream about our goals and basically “wish upon a Secret” and hope something happens…and spend the rest of the day thinking about and focusing on negativity!
Now I hear you, how do you give up negative thinking? Well, it’s not easy! But I also wrote another article here that will help you do just that.
And finally, realize that everything happens for a reason, and that God is in control of everything. Everything that happens to you is the best possible thing at the best possible time, or it wouldn’t be happening.

Now, wait a second; doesn’t that sound like a contradiction???

Not quite! That is why I said *co-creating * your life. Most of us live life like we are driving bumper cars, ramming again and again up against the same old walls until we learn to drive better. Lucky for us, God has put bumpers on the car and pads in the seats!

What I mean is, don’t resist life. Have faith that you are being guided and moving in the right direction; everything you have you have asked for, and God gave to you. If God gave it to you, then it can’t be so bad, can it?
Remember, gratitude is the foundation of the Law of Attraction, if you aren’t grateful for where you are, who you are, and what you have right now, then you will NEVER have anything better.
YouTube Preview Image
So, to summarize the steps of how to make the Law of Attraction work 100% of the time:

Step 1: Realize it IS already working 100% of the time, so you don’t have to do anything to make it work!

Step 2: Decide what it is that you want in absolute clarity.

Step 3: Realize that if you’re not getting what you want, something inside of you is focusing on the wrong things.

Step 4: Stay focused on what it is that you want to happen at all times, and in all situations; this will be difficult at first, but gets easier. The more you expect good things, the more good things start to happen.

Step 5: Realize that everything you get, is the absolute perfect thing that you need to happen, or it wouldn’t be happening. Whatever lessons you need to learn are right in front of your face. If you can’t see them, ask God to show them to you in a clearer way.

No matter what your spiritual beliefs are, I hope you can see that you were created by a Power that loves you, that wants you to succeed and especially to be happy. You’ve been taught the Law so that you can use it, it will not fail, it can not fail. Embrace your nature as a child of God and go for it!

I want to leave you with one last thought:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
-Marianne Williamson

Getting rid of worry and fear; Or, knowing what you want (Video)

posted by B. Dave Walters

I want to share with you an extremely powerful process of how to welcome miracles into your life and manifest blessings on a daily basis.

If you are having worries, fears, or doubts in your life, this video will solve them once and for all.

YouTube Preview Image

Remember how yesterday we talked about you writing down what you want?
So, did you do it?  Did take the time to write down what you want?
If you didn’t, do it now!  If you aren’t willing to take the time to at least make a list, then it is not very likely you are going to put in the effort to actually make it happen.

So if you didn’t, stop here until you do.

OK, so if you did it: let’s go on =)

Now that you have your list of ‘wants’, lets convert them into some goals. You may have heard it said that goals need to be S.M.A.R.T. Which means specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, timely.

Specific means it has to be something, well, specific! Like I said yesterday, “I want to be happy” isn’t specific. Neither is something like “I want more money”; if I give you a $1 then you have ‘more’ money. So specific is something like “I want to have an income of over $70,000 a year”

Measurable means that you can know when you have it, or at least when you are getting close! Like if you have a goal to lose 10 pounds, then you can look at the scale and see if you did it or not. Or at least if you are moving in the right direction.

Actionable means you have to be able to do something to make it happen.

Realistic is a sticky one. I think quite often people use this as an excuse to aim low, and you know I like BIG goals! But if you say something like “I want to be President of the United States this year” and there is no election, or “I want to win a Gold Medal at this year’s Summer Olympics” that might be tough…since there are no games this year!
So rather than realistic, the goal should at least be POSSIBLE.

Timely means you need to set a deadline. The difference between a goal and a dream is a deadline. Decide when you want to have these things by.

Figure out what your goals are, and tomorrow we’ll start putting a plan in place to make them happen.

Remember last time when I asked who you are?
Well, there are two possible answers: The first, is that you ARE. You are pure energy, you are infinite; you have always existed and always will exist.
The other answer, is you are who you choose to be. Any of the labels you used to describe yourself are labels that have been placed on you, or that you have chosen to accept; but they aren’t YOU, they don’t define you.
They only have what power over you that you give them. So because of that, you can be whomever you want.
You can recreate yourself however you want, at any time.

So that leads to today’s question: what do you want?
Take some time to write down what you want, but BE SPECIFIC!
Don’t say things like “I want to be happy” or, “I want to feel peaceful” because any emotional state is within your power to create at any time.
Outside forces don’t dictate how you feel, how you feel dictates your outside environment!
I don’t want to talk to much about feelings just now, so let’s start with what you want.

And, if you really don’t know what you want, then the easiest thing to do is start with a list of what you DON’T want!
Write down everything in your life that isn’t working right now, and once you have it you can take the opposite of each and make it your ‘do want’ list.
Does that make sense?

For instance, you may say “I don’t want my husband / wife to ignore me”, which can be restated as “I want full and open communication with my husband / wife”.
Understand?

Start with that, and we’ll talk more later.

I have a question for you; since this is our first day together, we’ll start simple.
Who are you?

Really, take some time to think about it: who are you?
If you answered with your name, that’s now you: that’s your name.
If you answered with your job title, that’s not you: that’s what you do to make money.
If you said you’re a Christian, Muslim, Atheist…that’s not you, that’s what you believe.
If you said you’re a man, or a woman, that’s not you: that’s your gender.
If you say you’re a mother or father, that’s not you: that just means you’ve reproduced.

Keep peeling back the labels until you see what’s underneath.
