I thought I would share this beautiful song with you as the lyrics could not be more relevant to everything this blog is about. The weird thing is, it’s by Massive Attack, who are my favourite music producers and I’ve had this track for years but never took much notice of the lyrics till last year.
I suddenly realised what was being said and fully understood it for the first time – which shows how much more aware you become once you go deeper into this journey of self development. Similar to reading “Think and Grow Rich”, which the first time around, I was not aware enough to fully understand.
I ended up playing it every morning for 6 months and it really helped me during a tough period. It reminded me what I needed to do to stay on the right path towards creating the life I desired. I hope it might do the same for you.
I’ve pasted the lyrics below and analysed them, so you fully understand. Do as they say and there’s no doubt in my mind, you have a blueprint for success.
I was initially reluctant to get this book due to the word “god”. The fact I have not written god with a capital G tells you all you need to know about my feelings towards it! I have never believed in god since I became an adult, have been an atheist most of the proceeding time and now………..well, let’s just say books like Conversations With God are making me re-think that! But it doesn’t matter if you are agnostic, atheist or religious, this book is a must-read. But be warned; no matter what your belief, you are about to have it severely challenged!
I can now say with 100% certainty that I believe in the Law of Attraction. Too much crazy shit has happened in recent times for me to think anything otherwise!! But I’ve found that it can be difficult to have faith in it, particularly when thing aren’t going so well. When that happens, I like to remind myself of things that make me realise ANYTHING is possible because we live in a world full of mysteries, miracles and mind boggling wonders that the human mind can barely comprehend!
Here’s a list of 10 things on this planet (and beyond!) that even after millennia of human existence, we STILL haven’t got the foggiest idea what it fully means or what is there. If that’s the case, then why the hell can’t the law of attraction be real?
When I first began this journey down the rabbit hole of enlightenment, the vast majority of people I was learning from were American (or Canadian). Most of them were middle aged or older. Whilst I didn’t have an issue with this (and age means nothing to me, even more so 18 months into this journey) during those first 6 months or so, I was in a constant battle to keep faith in what I was learning.
When you are a young, mixed-race male from a working-class family in England, with no prior experience or belief in anything spiritual, it’s kind of difficult to instantly buy into things like the law of attraction or anything that can’t be experienced with the 5 senses. So it helps at least in the beginning, to have one or two people who you can relate more easily to. Ralph Smart helped enormously with that, but it was another guy who REALLY resonated with me more than anyone else; ex-con, football hooligan and drug addict, turned yoga and transformational coach, Brett Moran!
Let’s get one thing straight; just because I talk about spirituality, doesn’t mean I’m religious! Far from it. In fact, I’m dead against organised religion of any sort. Big institutions are not needed in order for people to follow the basic and profound teachings which underpin all religions. Besides, these organisations have caused as much pain as they have helped, through wars in their name, corruption and the controlling of society through needless, harsh rules.
But the basic principles of the major religions are actually very similar. The men who these religions were born from (Christ, Krishna, Buddha, Mohammed) were all trying to teach the same message; to be kind to one another and to realise that we have the power within us to do whatever our heart desires. These gurus weren’t attempting to set up a religion! Other people decided on that. And all this bullshit about heaven, a cushy afterlife that we have to somehow suffer for now in order to attain once we die – what a waste of time! A waste of life.
This is the man who I was totally obsessed with almost every day for an entire YEAR. I was enthralled by the wisdom spewed forth from this charismatic young Brit. Before, I had always thought YouTube was just full of clips of cats on skateboards, music videos and immature humour for teens. I had no idea it was a treasure trove of audio books, useful how-to videos and most fascinatingly, vlogs. Everyday people sharing their knowledge.
I have mentioned a few times a new friend who has come into my life since I began blogging. The circumstances surrounding how she suddenly appeared and who she is, left me in very little doubt that we were drawn together through the law of attraction. In fact, I would say she is a major reason why I now believe in it 100%. For a while now, I had asked the universe to send me someone who I could talk to about what I’d been going through the past 18 months. Someone who understood this pathway, was either going through the same spiritual enlightenment or was already experienced in this way of living. But I hadn’t met anyone who really understood what I was going through. Then, just a few weeks into blogging, I received a direct message on Twitter from a girl I recognised very well indeed…………..
Drug overdose deaths in the US have reached record highs and many of them are from legally prescribed medication. Russell Brand takes a look at why this could be in his YouTube series “The Trews” (True News). This ties in well with one of the key messages I try to get across on this blog: meds are NOT the answer and never will be, to anxiety or depression. All pain comes from a much deeper level.
Do you think the illnesses in your body are totally out of your control? Do you believe that your genes are to blame for all your health issues and bad luck? Then you NEED to read Bruce Lipton’s “The Biology of Belief”! I read it a year ago and can honestly say it’s one of a small handful of books that I believe not only should be studied in all schools but had a huge effect in turning my life around. This is a groundbreaking book about the relatively new science of epigenetics, which has been proven to show that environmental factors have a greater effect on our body than our genes. It proves how our DNA is NOT set in concrete and does NOT 100% control our destiny. In fact, DNA can be altered by outside influences and that includes OUR OWN MINDS! The key message of this book is that if you learn to think in the correct manner, you can essentially change who you are.
