The Truth Shall Set You Free: The Council Of 12

The following quote is from The Council of 12 to the participants of the current Soul and Ego workshop series (Development of Your Psychic Self) earlier in December. It illustrates the importance of discovering your truth and developing an appropriate way of expressing it. “It is necessary that you conquer, in particular, the feelings of guilt and begin to live your truth without harming others, for it is easy to harm others by living your truth…”

Tips On Manifestation: Past Lives, Soul & Ego

You manifest what you vibrate, and what you vibrate is governed by the collection of impressions gathered from this life and all the lifetimes you have lived. Most people cannot recall their past lifetimes the very good reason that they may not be ready to deal with what they did before. They may also misinterpret their actions from those previous lives.

Focusing On Good Sense: Tips For Meditation

I recently heard the results of a five-year-long study on the benefits of meditation: hot off the press is the news that yes, meditation definitely benefits your mind and health! Of course, this is not news; it is something all meditators and some of the greatest minds in history have known forever. The study was likely undertaken by the usual skeptics who require quantifiable, scientific evidence of benefits before you would even consider it.

The Secret: Three Important Things You Should Know

This book was a great success when it first appeared a few years ago. The ‘secret’ is quite simply stated:

“You and I hold the power of life in our hands. You can create anything you wish in your life. All you have to do is to focus your thought and project a picture of what you want and hey presto, it is yours.”

In short, if you put a lot of concentrated focus behind the thought, your thought will manifest into a reality in your life.

Sounds fantastic doesn’t it? Too good to be true?

Well, fundamentally, it is true. There is no doubt in my mind that this IS the secret. And we all have access to it. For we all are connected to the Universe, the greatest power that exists.

There are, however, some flaws in this story…

Three essential elements weren’t covered adequately and therefore in my eyes, we ended up with a story that only told us part of the secret - a secret with no value at all!

The first thing the book missed was this crucial point: you will only achieve what you visualise if you truly believe you deserve it. This is not so much about your conscious belief; this is governed by your unconscious belief, which is built from your history. If the secret isn’t manifesting for you, have a look at your past conditioning. Check out your history. You may find that your sense of self worth was so battered in your early life that you don’t believe you are worthy of the thing you ask for. You may need to do some inner work to heal this.

The second essential point missing was if you ask the Universe for something you long for, always add this little footnote to your prayer/request:

“May this only occur if it serves my highest good.”

This is in case your prayer/request is only your ego trying to manifest its desires. And if this is the case and you DON’T use the little footnote, you may very well get what is absolutely no good for you at all!

The third thing that lessened the story in my eyes was the focus on materialism. If you recall, many of the people portrayed in the book focused on material possessions.

One fellow had a photo of a mansion on his visualisation board for years; now he owns the mansion and considers this a wonderful example of the application of ‘the secret’. However, if this does not serve his highest good, it will only bring him a whole bunch of stuff opposite to what he thought he was asking for. The mansion of his dreams could end up the very worst thing for him.

Of course there really are no wrong decisions in life, as every path can be learned from. However, there are different paths to the destination; some are the long way around while others are more direct. You choose!

Hopefully this gives you an added perspective to the story and a better idea of the 'real' secret.
