Matthew Butler ~ How Materialism Posing As Mysticism Subverts Spirituality And Limits Consciousness

“Those who believe they can manifest all their desires through positive thinking and believing in the outcome don’t seem to be aware that the more you chase after your cravings, the more you tighten the net of your own enslavement, when you could be using life to break free of these limitations.” M Butler

The law of attraction is a wildly-popular modern mystical belief hyped as the secret to fulfilling your every desire. It has big celebrity endorsements, and commercial products rehashing its claims sell in abundance. But beneath the glossy facade there’s often an agenda pushing egocentrism and greed in metaphysical garb, which limits consciousness and subverts spirituality for shallow materialistic ends.


Many spiritual traditions have arisen throughout history and although they have their differences, a common recurring principle is that greed and spirituality don’t mix. Renowned spiritual teachers like Jesus or Buddha did not promote greed in their teachings or lifestyle – quite the opposite: they showed that greed and egocentrism had to be overcome.

Greed has been seen in many spiritual traditions as an obstacle or trap that prevents us from understanding and fulfilling a higher purpose to life. Because it makes us selfish and obsessed with transient things, it has long been taught that renouncing selfish desires, and selflessly helping others to do the same, is necessary to attain salvation or liberation.

But this principle is increasingly turned on its head in the world of commercial spirituality. Some want to have it both ways – a spiritual or metaphysical pursuit in their lives and all their material desires fulfilled – and those selling this message (and the corporations behind them) can make a lot of money out of pushing this false promise. But at what price?

Shanta Gabriel ~ Be Grateful For All That You Have And All That You Are

“Consider how truly fortunate you are, and open up to new feelings of Gratitude and Well-being. Just like a dial on a radio, changing the channel to the one that beams out Harmony, Joy and Love will gift you with a totally new perspective.” ~S Gabriel

ShantaGabrielWith all that is going on in the world and in our lives, it is easy to get disgruntled. Sometimes it is easier to just let our thoughts go into the negative channels, where we seem to have a habitual groove, and just ruminate on how bad things seem to be.

It takes discipline and effort to switch to a different channel where we can look from a higher level, a more grateful perspective. When we do this, it can take us directly into our hearts, and then from our heart’s intelligence we are able to create from a more resourceful place. Gratitude is the attitude that allows us to be inspired to feel more love and appreciation for our lives. That is because Gratitude is a powerful energy surge that raises our vibrational frequencies to the level where we can see beyond the immediate appearance of disharmony to the truth of the dynamic force of the Divine working in our lives.

This profound energy force can work with us to create a life that is more in keeping with what we want to experience. It responds to our thoughts and feelings very directly. In the new energy system in which we are living, we have clear choices about how we want to live. In this time of heightened energy frequencies, we have been given a blank slate where we can formulate our lives. We can do this from our heart’s longings, and even from our deepest dreams, hopes and wishes. Though this may sound very simple, because of our habitual ways of thinking, it takes an extreme focus of our attention on what we truly want to experience instead of what we don’t like about ourselves and our lives.

This is a very powerful tool, simple but not easy; empowering or disabling, according to the magnetic energy we are projecting into the fields around us. Physics tells us that we have a field of unlimited potential waiting for us to seed our futures. The magnetic energy of our thoughts and feelings is the seed that creates attraction to a different experience. That is why keeping our energy frequencies as high as possible makes such a difference in what we are experiencing in life.

When there is nothing else we can think of to do to feel better, being grateful can be the key that turns the tides of our feelings into the channels of new life and well-being. It is an amazing and powerful tool just waiting for us to put it into action. With this simple tool you can turn your life into more positive channels as you become more grateful for all that you already have in your life. Continue reading

Enlightened Beings ~ The 5 Steps To Manifesting Any Intention

Jafree Ozwald February 21 2014

“Forget mistakes. Forget failure. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it. Today is your lucky day!” ~Will Durant

WomanOverlookingMountainRidgeIt’s good to know that you already have exactly what it takes to manifest whatever heart desires in your life. There truly is nothing that you cannot do, create, be or have. By simply visualizing, feeling and knowing your life’s greatest dream is about to manifest for you, you can learn how to receive everything you’ve been looking for. Get ready to learn how to start taking massive action and see miraculous things manifest in your life!

Yes! Today is your day to get off the sidelines and jump onto the playing field of your dreams! You are about to learn how to create an amazing life that you love and make all your goals a living reality!! Are you excited? Well, simply follow these 5 actions below and you’ll begin attracting unstoppable success into your life this week…enjoy!

1. Choose ONE thing to manifest and be super specific about what it is.

If you have too many desires eating at you, they will leak your energy and disable you from creating any one of them. It’s best to focus on one specific thing at a time that is the most important thing you want and need. If you want a new job, what kind of job is it? Get specific with yourself about how many hours a week, what you’ll be doing, with what type of people, and how much will you be paid? If you also want a new relationship, body, money, peace of mind, and more fun in bed too, you’ll have a much easier time creating all of these dreams when you take care of your priority first. So just start with that one most important outcome that you most want/need to create, and commit to sticking to it like super glue over the next 90 days.

We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages now to provide insight each week as we move into the New Life that 2014 promises.

For this week’s issue, my web angel Lana chose a card about Divine Right Attitude.

The Gabriel Message card for this week
Be grateful for all that you have and all that you are.

Enlightened Beings ~ The 5 Steps To Manifesting Any Intention

Jafree Ozwald November 20 2013

“Success doesn’t come to you … you go to it.” ~Marva Collins

Setting an intention is something we all have done in the past and naturally have the ability to do, and most of us haven’t learned exactly how to control it….yet! Today we are going to go into the specifics about how YOU can manifest WHATEVER you want in your life through this amazing power of intention that you already have! Start right now by noticing where these images about your life are coming from. If you look deep enough, you’ll see that something in you is constantly directing your attention towards what you want, and thus consistently attracting it into your life. Whether it’s that same constant argument with your best friend about religion, the feeling that you really do deserve a better job, or perhaps that dream car, house or bank account you wish you had, your mind is always focusing on something!

Whatever you place your thoughts upon is where the manifesting energy flows, which incidentally create the exact situations and circumstance of your future. When you come to know what you really really WANT to have in your life, you simply relax your body and focus your entire life energy into that direction with the FEELING your deepest desires is about to be fulfilled! Your mind will just go there automatically when the feeling is ripe and alive. Which brings us to the first golden key to manifesting; learning how to set a positive intention.

“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living. Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.” ~Gail Sheehy
