How Good of A Manifestor Are You?

Mon, 04/18/2011 - 06:32 am PST by Paul Obrien

My recent guest on my Pathways interview show, Michael Beck, is an executive coach who, among other things, helps entrepreneurs and people in general achieve what they want. He thinks we humans are all actually excellent manifestors ... much better than we know ... in fact, we are successfully manifesting all the time! That's how good we are -- the only problem is that we are generally manifesting things that we DON'T want!

The problem with manifestation techniques like "The Secret" is the illusion that all we need to do is visualize and exercise our wishful thinking a little harder. Well, yes, it certainly does help to focus on our target rather than all the things that can go wrong, but increasing our feeling of attraction is not going to change our general thinking habits which are probably -- in our corrupted society -- all too much about things that we fear.

So ... we are excellent manifestors! In fact, we are doing it constantly and effortlessly. As we dwell (sometimes obsessively) on anxious or worried thoughts, our subconscious makes sure things actually don't turn out so well as they could. We make bad decisions, alongside our faithful visualizing of better things, and manifest negative results in our personal lives. Too much of the time fear, worry and anxiety dim the clear light of our consciousness. All this negative thinking is bound to produce depressed results, which cannot be simply overwritten by tons of affirmations!

Anxious thinking habits will not be changed easily. To remove such a large dark cloud, we have to unravel its thought-filaments -- the core beliefs behind the thoughts. We learn to pay greater attention to what's going through our heads, and then use that awareness to change our minds ... to evolve our current beliefs ... to learn. The recognizing and upgrading of habitual thinking is more difficult than the other two manifestation steps (getting a clear vision and taking action), but as we progress we will immediately start making better decisions that will change our results.

Explaining how to do this is just one of the nuggets of wisdom that Mr. Beck shares in my interview of him on Divination.com.

This is an extremely low-key week with nothing major going on other than the New Moon in Gemini on Thursday. On the same day, however, Venus squares Pluto, and domineering control freaks can run roughshod over more sensitive types.A Lunar T-Square and a Grand Cross in the Cardinal signs on Monday and Sunday also bring a certain emotional volatility to the beginning and end of the week.Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all.

Ruled by Mercury -- the wing-footed messenger god -- airy Gemini is the connector and communicator, circulating ideas and information. Whether you're a Gemini, a fellow Air sign like Libra or Aquarius, or one of the nine other horoscope signs, you'll definitely feel this fast-paced, flirty influence while the Sun is in Gemini ... continued »

Get ready to give up your gift of gab -- at least for a while. Chatty Mercury moves into slow-and-steady Taurus on May 16, 2017. Speedy Mercury, planet of communication, finds a more sturdy environment in earthy Taurus. ... continued »

Here's a common question astrologers are asked: If twins share the same birthday, how can they sometimes be so different? Isn't their birth chart the same, too? The answer is ... no! We expect two people born at almost the same time, with similar genetics and raised in the same environment to be very similar. And most of the time they are, but it's the exceptions that are used to challenge Astrology. ... continued »
