(Just some thoughts along my journey.... These are the stories nobody tells while they're happening, only after massive success years later. I say fuck that! This is part of my story NOW. If you're here, you're embarking on some mind-blowing awesomeness with me ;). Stay tuned.)
When you begin to understand that you have to FEEL IT FIRST... feel it first, then it manifests. Feel it first, then it manifests. FEEL IT... then it manifests.
Well. Then you start looking back at your life and wondering how many of your pissy moods and fucked up days turned into more of the same. Once you've wondered and kind of let your subconscious wander around back there for a little while, kicking over rocks and sorting through memories, you are very likely to start examining things much more closely and making connections you never knew were there before.
These tend to be highly personal, emotional, and sometimes shocking connections, maybe even with a few epiphanies and aha-moments thrown in there.
Which is why there is no physical evidence for inner work, usually, and even if there is, it tends to be circumstantial at best. Your most important work goes on within, not anywhere outside of yourself. Oh, you had an epiphany the other day? Prove it!!!
Well, that's not exactly possible, is it? How do you prove to someone that you've made a personal breakthrough they can't see? Further, how do you try to tell a skeptic that epiphanies are a real thing if they refuse to be open to the idea of it at all... and refuse to utilize their inner GPS/emotional guidance system to guide them because, "emotions aren't real."
I hate to break it to you, but emotions are more real than these meat suits. Emotion = energy in motion. Emotion is frequency, vibration. Emotions are your indication of whether you're connected to the divine or meandering through your day in a mediocre life of misery... constantly, daily, always attracting more mediocre misery because that is how you feel, and that is why you feel stuck. We wind up in the loop of, "well, I feel this way because of this," and really, the truth is, that thing that's happening "to" you is something you attracted and are blaming for what you're attracting, making it endlessly loop in on itself. Once you get that, many, many doors begin to open ;). But only if you're ready to see those doors being open. If you're still feeling stuck, then you will keep yourself blind.
(Evidence of emotions affecting the physical world is all around us, for example about the heart: "Now researchers are learning that this marvelous machine, the size of a fist and weighing on average less than 10 ounces, also possess a level of intelligence they are only beginning to understand. Evidence shows the heart also plays a greater role in our mental, emotional and physical processes than previously thought." Link in comments. Depression is linked to heart disease, etc. etc. etc. A little digging, basic grasp of frequencies/quantum physics/mindfulness, and good instincts will open your eyes to much more than what is visible to the limited and finite human eye in this world, which isn't very much.)
So, how does evidence of inner work usually present itself to the physical world? Well... for starters, the individual doing the inner work will probably begin changing. This can manifest as all sorts of different things, although you can very much expect negative or unhealthy vices to be the first things to go.
For me personally, this began with the decision to stop drinking wine in excess. I started yoga & meditation, then quit smoking cigarettes, then started walking/hiking a lot. I hope to work my way up to running... maybe even mountain climbing eventually ;). I look forward to making my temple (body) healthy enough to do these things relatively safely.
But I am FEELING it now. NOW. In the moment.
Just like two years ago, I had overpowering urges to keep working on myself so that I could fly... ahem, run ;). Now I'm much closer to my goal, and the reality of making it happen was way less scary than I thought it would be.
Because I already attracted it.
Having said all of that.... I have recently made the conscious decision to manifest on purpose. Trying to, anyway. I have no mentor, so if any of you are out there, enlightened, seekers, a little more experienced than me with LOA and ascension and willing to help out someone who is financially in crisis, well... hit me up ;). If not that's cool, too.
Meanwhile... I am continuing to study the 7 Hermetic Principles and LOA, spirituality, meditation, and I am continuing to reach out to whomever I can in whatever way I can (much of it on FB) to help bring love and excitement and passion to the world. THAT is the point. YES, the point of life is to be happy! This whole rat race thing is made up.
Now, to break through my final limitations, also known as limiting beliefs....
