Instead of saying I need ........{fill in the blank}in my life say I accept ........ into my life and I have such joy as I experience ....... in my life. Visualize your smile and your happy dance.

Some will take thought that they have no idea how to bring .........into manifestation. Well the good thing is you don't have to figure out how to bring.........into your life. There is something. whatever you want to call it, that takes your thoughts and manifests them. What we need to understand is we write the book and we are the orator of our life but we are not the total actions causing it to be played out with precision into manifestation. Perhaps we should also affirm right now we are openly accepting our good. Again visualize your happy dance.

Here is an interesting video that I thought gives much insight into having instead of continually needing.

Open2It,

This was the 2nd time I saw the Neale Walsh video you referenced. It intrigued me the 1st time, especially after the part where he joked with the folks in the more relaxed setting of someone's home, "....you can't get your money back."

However the 2nd time, this time, I looked at it through the eyes of one who had read the responses to your OP here in SF.

This time, I heard the words to the effect:

"God, or the Universe always says 'yes, that's true'...."
"God does not say no...."
"You already have everything you want now"

....and the like, all of which I happen to agree with, and many of your points, as well.

What I'm filtering these comments through, now, is a nagging suspicion, that something very important in my understanding of this "You want, you get want" way of looking at things, is still missing. This "missing thing" is a blind spot I've been taught NOT to think of, or "see".

The missing thing that skews awareness of the underlying thesis in the title of your post, and in Neale Walsh's discourses (based on his book, "Conversations with God"), and in the majority of the responses to your OP, is the implicit, unacknowledged idea of being "separate" beings, as taught from childhood on....!

Don't you just get the feeling of "separateness" from having what you want, separateness from each other, separateness from God, or the "Universe", separateness from our "true Selves", separateness from the answers we seek, separateness from the past or the future, separateness from our ungovernable subconscious, or WORST of all, separateness from the "ego" that makes everything appear to be separate, etc,......you get the idea?.

It seems to me that the "workarounds" we've fooled ourselves into using to bridge the seemingly "unbridgeable" gap that persistently exists between "Yes, you have it"....and "Yes, you have it, but not yet" come in all sorts of schemes, forms, names, and methods, don't they?

Personally, I think the entire problem is in the underlying basis of the languages we use to re-present the world to ourselves, and what appears to be "everything else". There is a persistent, dualistic, "yes/no", "noun/verb", "subject/object" mechanism built-into the linguistic structures we've adopted to make sense of the world, which fosters and energizes the idea of separation (i.e. me/not-me), wouldn't you agree??

So what's a hungry, lonely, disillusioned, cut-off, separated being to do, huh ????

If, Truth be known (and which Science has finally revealed)...nothing is separated into any of the categories we've been erroneously taught to automatically assign!! In learning how to use the "map" of designations by which we navigate the world, from childhood on, we have forgotten that the "map is not the territory". Scientists used to think that time and space were "separate from one another", and had amassed all sorts of evidence to prove it, didn't they? That is, until Einstein came along and proved them utterly wrong, with a "more" correct interpretation of the evidence, right? No different than the corrections to their (and our collective) interpretations have changed what we NOW think of ourselves.

Now, we've come to understand what has been the Truth, all along...while we were blinded by the maps we made....

Now, even post-Einstein, we understand that we are no more separate from the entirety of Creation, than the maps we've built to describe It....are actually Creation, Itself. We've simply conflated the "tools" for the Totality.

Solution? "Understand that YOU are the Territory Itself, not the tools you've been using to describe it from afar."

Then, armed with a clear understanding of immutable Truth, that the Universe always says YES!, no affirmations will ever be expressed as hapless, hopeless whimpers, "You want, you get want"; they will only be expressed as energetic, empowered, certainty: "I always get what I want."

Hope this, and the reference, below helps.

It's a start, if we're open to it!

guthrio you got it. We are no more possible in truth to separate ourselves from the universe than it is for the universe to separate itself from us.
Check this out and ponder on it. Dictionary description of reality.
1. the qualities of being real, resemblance to an original. 2. all that is real, the real world as distinct from imagination or fantasy, lost his grip on reality.
3. something that exists or that is real, the realities of a situation.................. Notice realities of a situation, it does not say reality of set in stone fact/truth.

Like your mapping of the territory we see the illusion as the reality. What we call being a reality of our life at the present time is merely our vision of what we call reality at the present time. If being in poor health, being poor, being mentally lacking, or you name it was a reality then it could not be replaced in our life experience. Yet we know from experience those things are not actual reality but illusions of our mapping/describing our life at any given time.

A friend of mine got screwed over by a program glitch and she lost any records of her time on the job, therefore she lost those wages. Here is the KICKER, she prior to the incidence had changed her password to "this job sucks". Thank goodness she realized what she claimed as a reality of her job. The tongue is a double edged sword, it cuts both ways. Watch what you use to sharpen it.

As far as it always works when you know what you are doing, nope it works whether you know what you are doing or not. God always says yes, the universe is always totally subjective. It can only say it is manifested as you called it forth.

Open2It,

Welcome to the Forum! I like the way you think! And you're right! The Universe always works whether you know how it works or not. I think Jonathan Livingston Seagull definitely confirmed that for himself....when Chiang had helped him "with his control", by the time they returned to the Flock (but that's another sea shore story for another time).

...and Yes, if one's password affirms, "This job sucks", the Universe says yes to that too, to her chagrin (because she meant it affirmatively!).

If you think about it, a "password" is what a computer uses to "Say Yes" to its "universe", right? No different than a firmly expressed affirmation being what the Universe uses to "Say Yes" to us.

I just changed my signature to reflect the Truth you've stated, herein.

Thanks for your excellent answer....
