When Life Exceeds Your Expectation!

Not many people get to say that their lives are exceeding their expectation. What do I attribute to being able to finally saying this?

About 3 1/2 years ago I decided to make a move in my life that was not only physically different (Nashville to South Florida), but I also decided that I would do nothing the way I had done it in the past. Yes, I was successful in Nashville in business, but my success was hard fought and lasted as long as I kept putting all of my life force into it and giving people what they wanted. I didn’t think much about what I needed to be the spiritual force I had been created to be.

Then everything changed with one phone call from my sister Lori. “Come to Florida,” she said, “and we will all help take care of Mom!”

I thought, “I have been wanting to make a change, a shift. Now is the time. No one or nothing is holding me back.” I had just had a major split from a partner I thought I would marry, on Valentine’s day no less, he said, “I don’t know if you’re the one!” The next day he was gone. I literally only saw him one more time and that was on the Internet on a gay dating site.. OY

I sold my home, gave away my business, and decided I would let God do the rest. Relationships, work, spiritual home were all up in the air. I did have an idea of where I would find fellowship in Florida. That much was clear and nothing else. I didn’t even choose my own apartment. My sister did that for me as I put my mom on a plane 3 months before I left for Florida for good.

What I really want to explain here is what change in my heart that dynamically made the most difference in my life:

HOW I PRAYED! WHAT I PRAYED! AND HOW I LET MYSELF BE LED TO THE NEXT OPEN DOOR!

Nothing is more important than finding that prayerful place where you become one with the highest consciousness available for you in the moment you pray. This kind of meditation, combined with affirmative prayer (check out this page of my blog for how), changed everything for me.

I wrote a book about the entire experience without even knowing where I would be in the next two years. I simply believed I would experience everything the seeds of my believe would bring forth: prosperity, true love, spiritual growth, a loving and secure place to live, and mostly simple peace and happiness.

Cause and Effect #causeandeffect

The Law of Mind is up to YOU to learn, because it continually works no matter if you believe in it or not. When you imagine and dream—and allow your thoughts to shape this subjective energy, “these thoughts, plus your conviction about the thought or dream, will bring about your reality!” This is not Karma, but the Law of Cause and Effect.

Look around you and observe your life. Are you living your dream or are you in the hell of your mind that you have been deliberating, replaying, and rehearsing for years? If you are in the hell, then you must take a step forward and learn to shape and mold the UNUSED energy of the universe readily available for you at all times.

If you are a Christian, you believe in what Jesus taught. Jesus was a metaphysician, too. He spoke his word and believed his word with conviction. From His truth, great miracles manifested. We all would hope to, someday, do the work of Jesus. But, as the master teacher, Jesus, says in John 14:12, “and even much greater works shall YOU do!”

So, the question is: How do we take the power that is in our minds and bring it into full fruition in our daily lives? The answer is in the metaphor of a tiny seed planted in the ground. This Law of Cause and Effect is evident in one of Jesus’s teachings.

Your thoughts and dreams are like this small seed. In this metaphor, the ground is the fertile energy of the Subjective Mind. When you plant this seed-thought, you must do something that most of us forget to do when we dream—Intend.

You plant the seed with the intention or the knowledge of one law—the Law of Cause and Effect. This Law says, when you plant a seed in the ground, it grows. But, you must wait, sometimes for days, for maybe even seasons, before that plant grows and turns into a tree that bears fruit.

So, following the Master Teacher’s advice, we must take into account that dreams and intentions take time. We plant the seed. We water and care for the seed as it grows into a plant. But the one thing we DO NOT DO is actually grow that seed into a plant.

That action of growth is up to the Law, or God.

So, we plant the seed; God grows the tree.

Or in metaphysical terms, “We make the intention; Spirit manifests the intention.”

Our one job—should we decide to put this Law to work—is to believe in the Law of Cause and Effect with all of our thoughts.

If your brain slips into disbelief, this is a time that we may use affirmations. When your dream does not appear as if it is growing and manifesting fast enough, you must still continue to believe. Sometimes, speaking affirmative words aloud helps restore faith. Here are a couple of examples of affirmations:

  • “My finances are constantly increasing.”
  • “The more peace I have inside, the more peace I have to share.”
  • “Divine Love holds together all that is meant to stay together.”

Creating a Life Worth Living Series #4, by Bo Sebastian

The Results of Old Thoughts

Old thoughts that live inside of your brain turn ideas—bad or good—into what is currently going on in your life. So, when anything happens to you, in a moment, your brain infuses the new experience with your old attachment to it. Then, you respond and react.

For instance, you may be in a loving relationship, right now. But after your brain infuses your anxiously-attached past with loving actions, you may become insecure, even in the arms of someone holding you.

Another example: You may have a perfectly good evening out with friends. But, your brain has a fearful moment, coming from a time when you had been rejected. So, after your brain infuses this old experience with what is currently happening, you may end up sitting in the corner by yourself, feeling unworthy and unliked.

What takes more precedence about anything going on in your life, right now, is what you think about it.

Updating Your Mind

Continuing with our computer metaphor: If the monitor is not turned on, the computer of your brain cannot show you the stored information therein. So, we must begin by turning on the monitor. This happens in meditation.

In meditation you separate your current ideas from the ones dwelling in your humanness—brain and body. This creates a window to the brain, like the computer monitor, allowing you to self-reflect.

Then, if a thought does not line-up with what you believe about yourself, you will know that you must UPDATE that old thought or pathway.

You must stand apart from the Old Story to see what needs changing in the mainframe of your brain.

Your brain may need a major update to coincide with your current lifestyle, thoughts about yourself, and your beliefs. This is much like updating your computer with the newest software, so that the current programs on your computer will run smoothly.

* * *

In the coming pages you will begin a courageous walk that will completely change your mind about life. You will gain the power to UPDATE THOSE OLD THOUGHTS stored in your mind.

Though, in theory, this all sounds psychological; the practice of changing your thoughts depends a great deal on your self-reflection and, ultimately, your ability to apply Spiritual Principle to your problems.

A malfunction in your physical brain may affect interpersonal relationships, your relationship to your job, and your relationship to yourself—based on traumatic or insecure-attachment events in the developmental stages of childhood. As I said in the past section, this disorder may incline you to respond in one way to a situation, even though the circumstance may well deserve a different response.

In other words, situations that mirror an old event from your childhood, may cause a misfire if you do not consider the idea of Updating Your Mental Software with immutable, sound Spiritual Law.

When you have misfires in your brain, what you see on the monitor of your life is much different than what you imagine should exist from the actions you take and reactions to your life’s situations.

These conflicting thoughts can be very confusing and cause you to be insecure and anxious about life, in general.

When what appears on the monitor of your life is actually a triggered response or an instinctual reaction—a fight or flight human reaction—you begin to mistrust your own mind to make the correct and just decisions.

Because of this misappropriation and confusing network of thoughts and information filtering all of your life through the past, you have to do some basic work to discover what thoughts and ideas have been imposed upon you, and which of these thought-triggers need to be erased and changed.

Definition: Subconscious is the part of your mind that is beneath your conscious reasoning, the undercurrent of your belief system, and the storage center for the past.

Note: I will use the term subconscious only to refer to the working patterns of the human brain. I purposely intend not to confuse the word MIND with the word BRAIN. The two are vastly different.

The mind is infinite; the brain is human.
