The 7 Laws of Being Led Astray
"YOU ARE SO BUSY BEING YOU THAT YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW UTTERLY UNPRECEDENTED YOU ARE" JOHN GREEN
LAW No. 1 - have holy CURIOsity
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever" – Mahatma Gandhi
be a rebel; ask the big questions. educate yourself like a boss.
Acquire a burning curiosity. Search for the truth about the world you live in. Search for the truth about yourself. Do not assume you know yourself or what you are capable of. Do not believe everything your told. Do not assume that because you went to school and watch the news, that you are an educated and informed person. Ask questions. Do your own research. Follow the mysterious.
“the most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. it is the source of all true art and science. he to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed.” - einstein
law no. 2 - accept responsibility
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” ― C.G. Jung
we must Accept responsibility for being the creators of our reality
This is not some idealistic hippy theory… the latest science is now confirming that we are creating our realities with our thoughts (and words)… that consciousness affects/creates matter. We are like magnetic mirrors, attracting certain situations to ourselves that match where we are at in consciousness. By taking responsibility for everything that has happened to us, we can put an end to victimhood and stop blaming others for our problems or pain.
You are a divine creator. You are not being blown around in a lawless chaotic sea of luck and chance: you live in a purposeful world ruled by universal law. Learn the laws of nature and start surfing the tides of life with joyful intention and purpose.
your beliefs create your reality - there are no exceptions
A belief is simply a thought we keep thinking over and over again until our words, self talk, expectations, emotions and actions reflect it.
Unfortunately, many of us are focused on our problems and what we don't have, rather than on our blessings. By practicing mindfulness: becoming aware of our self talk and actions, the beliefs under them, and the feelings they produce - we become the silent watcher and can start to create more of what we want. Through mindfulness, we can tend to our mental garden, pulling out the weeds (thoughts that do not serve us) that have been making it difficult for our flowers (desires) to grow.
By realising that the thoughts that play in our heads through the day are just stories… we can start to rewrite them.
By realising that the words we speak have a manifesting power… that every time you speak you are casting a spell (thats why they call it spelling), we can start to choose our words more carefully.
Our imaginations are our most valuable and powerful tools... so wonder wisely.
LAW NO. 3 - dream like a boss
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein
dream big. dream often. wonder like a boss.
The only thing that is limiting you is your own imagination.
The ability to visualise - to see what is not yet before us - to overlay our reality with what we want, rather than focusing on what we don't want - is the art of conscious creating.
It is possible to dream ourselves into higher states of feeling and being. We can literally dream ourselves into new worlds.
"People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals - that is, goals that do not inspire them." - Tony Robbins
Dive deep into your heart’s desires. Know that you are worthy of them. Know that they are already yours. Practice dream balance: be happy and content with what you have, whilst reaching for the stars. Know what you want, and be at peace with how it comes about - that is for the universe to decide.
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.” – Oscar Wilde
"When you work simply for yourself or for your own personal gain your mind will seldom rise above the limitations of the undeveloped personal life; but when you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break bounds; your mind transcends limitations; your consciousness expands in every direction; and you find yourself in a new world, a great world, a wonderful world; dormant powers, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a larger man by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” - Christian D. Larson
law no. 4 - BE BRAVE
"The secret to existence is to have no fear" - Buddha
feel the fear and do it anyway
Fear is simply the energy of resistance to new change, which is what prevents us from moving forward and becoming greater.
Fear comes from labelling things as bad or wrong. It makes us afraid to hold new ideas or release old ones. Fear comes from the past. Just as the past holds us to what has been and can prevent us from moving forward, the more we hold on to old concepts and old ways, the more we allow the past to become our future experience.
Fear is not a bad or wrong: it has a purpose. It does not always cause suffering.. some times it can save your life. It is an integral part of life, and cannot be removed or destroyed. Only when we stop resisting it and instead embrace it, can we become free of fear’s hold on us.
ultimately we only ever have two choices: fear or love. Choose love.
law no. 5 - explore your HEART
"the longest journey you will make in your life is from your head to your heart" - sioux legend
People say "follow your heart"... but what does that even mean?
Be love. Allow it to lead you through life. To guide you.
See with it. Speak from it. Listen with and to it.
Live in it. Simply drop from your head & melt into your heart space.
The ancient Egyptians saw the heart as the organ of truth.
The seat of the soul. The essence of who you are.
The heart contains the power of life itself: of divine intelligence. The heart is the pathway to infinite wisdom.
“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ― C.G. Jung
The heart's frequency alters every other frequency within the universe. We now know they are intrinsically connected. The vibrational frequency that you emanate from you heart, which, when you are in a state of love, grace & gratitude, is the highest and most powerful frequency in the universe, and affects the world at the greatest rate.
laW NO. 6 - play
"life must be lived as play" - Plato
become a master at play. heal the inner child.
To play is to lose yourself in the moment, to do something for no specific purpose other than because it feels good… because it is fun and satisfies ones curiosity. To play is to forget about time and be in the present moment. Play is genius.
“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” ― Alan W. Watts
“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.” ― Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
Play is how we learn, connect and heal.
"Play is the highest form of research" - Einstein
"You can discover more about a person after an hour of play than you can after a year of conversation " - Plato
"Healing takes place in the frequency of joy, so if you want to heal something, go play" - Christie Sheldon
LAW NO. 7 - be the TRIBE
"How do you react when you think you need people's love? Do you become a slave for their approval? Do you live an inauthentic life because you can't bear the thought that they might disapprove of you? Do you try to figure out how they would like you to be, and then try to become that, like a chameleon? In fact, you never really get their love. You turn into someone you aren't, and then when they say "I love you," you can't believe it, because they're loving a facade. They're loving someone who doesn't even exist, the person you're pretending to be. It's difficult to seek other people's love. It's deadly. In seeking it, you lose what is genuine. This is the prison we create for ourselves as we seek what we already have" ―Byron Katie
Everyone needs a tribe. life would be meaningless without the people in our lives with which to Connect, share, participate, collaborate, love, laugh & play with.
we must love the people around us, but above all - we must stop caring what people think about us & love ourselves like a boss
Your vibe attracts your tribe
So align yourself with your truth & your true tribe will surely find you.
