We were born with the unlimited potential to intentionally create (use the law of attraction) to manifest all of our heart's desires. Together, as Conscious Leaders guided by the Divine, we have the Mind Power necessary to co-create a sustainable, harmonious, peaceful, and prosperous world.  And, we can do this while also attracting and creating a passionate, loving, rich, healthy life with all of our personal dreams fulfilled.

11-11-11 A Spiritual Mind Treatment for Activating & Commanding Higher Consciousness Experience for All – 11-11-11

Category: conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,emotional freedom technique,global transformation,law of attraction — Anisa @ 6:57 pm

I love all the Hoopla about 11-11-11! And, it's not because
I'm convinced of all the whoo-whoo hoopla about portals and
extra-terrestrial beings of light, either. Since, a
"believer" can't prove it to me and a "skeptic" cannot
disprove it, I'm allowing myself to stand in the middle and
catch a flying carpet ride! 

For me, the portal of light and global transformation day of
11-11-11 may be true or it may be crazy. It doesn't matter -
because WE, as conscious creators, get to dance with the
energy of pure-transformation and pure-manifestations with
thousands of others! Does it actually matter whether some
earth-shattering, spiritual portal shift is occuring or not?
I don't know?!? 

But, I do know that all over the globe, people are
meditating together on sustainability, health, wholeness,
transformation, peace, love, prosperity, enlightenment AND
JOY! We are holding our thoughts together - collectively -
to experience more GOD more of the time. How cool is
So, here's my personal prayer... I hope you'll join with me and launch an incredible vision with me! 
A Spiritual Mind Treatment


Activating and Commanding Higher Consciousness Experience
for All 

I claim my Divine Right to pure belief, pure harmony and
pure oneness with the Divine Energy that creates worlds. I
am so humbled by the sheer power of love and that I, as
Love's servant, get to access and command its power with
such a simple but direct intention. I acknowledge that there
is but ONE TRUE source for all creation and that SOURCE is
benevolent GOD/Creative Mechanism that responds with precise
obedience to my request for greater connection to the all-

Wow! I dance with joyous delight as I recognize that the
ALL-THAT-IS is right here, where I AM. I AM one with the
Divine energy of LOVE and TRANSFORMATION and if this is TRUE
for me, then it must be the TRUTH for all beings. Therefore,
I claim our direct link to powerful, manifestation
abilities. I claim our direct connection and ever-increasing
acceptance of the power to intentionally manifest beautiful
joy and ample supplies for all soul’s personal and physical
fulfillment. Do you hear me?! I am OWNING my ability to be a
powerful manifestor ONE with the DIVINE SOURCE that creates

Dear God – thank you for helping me to understand and fully
embrace the Divine Order of our world. Thank you for
supporting me in not becoming consumed or obsessed about
injustices and the trials and tribulations, and the
suffering while still inspiring me to take Divine Right
Action aligned with justice, and a more balanced, fair, and
conscious solution. 

Help me to understand that while all-things-are-perfect-
exactly-as-they-are, we are conscious creators that get to
direct the flow and it’s absolutely a part of our Divine,
collective plan to intend greater CONSCIOUSNESS. I choose
Health, Wealth, and Wholeness for all. I GET to hold and
accept this vision for myself and I choose to HOLD and
ACCEPT this manifestation for our world as well. 

I acknowledge that we manifested this world and therefore
the elements of climate change are OUR manifestational
results. Thus, I reclaim our planet and give thanks that all
systems required for a sustainable future are instantly and
immediately greased for flowing movement. I acknowledge that
those who have served as the ‘climate deniers’ are now
embracing truth and actively support the ‘spreading-of-the-
solution’. I am thankful for the spiritual activists and
those who vocalize solutions in a positive and powerful way.
I know we are powerful enough to create a positive world,
full of ample supply, resources, and the heightened
consciousness required for global care and relief from
unsustainable ideas. 

I am grateful that today we leap with joy into higher and
more evolved frequency. I give thanks that we collectively
WAKE UP! We awaken and embrace the Presence of God in each
person that we behold, no matter who they are or where they
come from. 

I ask for guidance as I walk with the intention of fierce
kindness. I choose to be kind at all times while fiercely
and courageously acting upon the intention of conscious
evolution. I seek guidance from the light of the Divine to
know how to speak and share the vision in such a way as to
make it accessible and acceptable by all. And, I detach
knowing that the crowd that is required for a global shift
is already in partnership with me. I seek to be of service
and ask to be a servant leader aligned with the Divine Love
that this transformative dream expresses. I seek to serve my
brothers and sisters on this planet, mammals and non,
enlightened ones and others. I give thanks that during this
transition that suffering be minimal. Because I CAN ask for
ease - I ask for it! Because I CAN ask for minimal suffering
- I ask for it! I am grateful that all disconnection from
SOURCE be transmuted into loving, joyous connection. 

I ask for a higher vibration to warm us like a soft blanket
in winter. I specifically ask that we, as a collective
species, wake up and learn the lessons we need to from our
most current planetary trials. I hold the intention of pure
recovery for Japan and that all future generations be immune
from the fallout of the recent Tsunami, Earthquake and
Nuclear meltdown. I hold the intention of the Gulf of
Mexico, restored and abundant with healthy, wildlife. I hold
the intention of Haiti as rebuilt and brought back to love
and life in a renewed plan for wholeness and prosperity. I
hold the intention of No. Korea’s flood-troubles eliminated
as they now experience an open-and-loving influx of support
and nourishment – so that all children have a full-belly and
ample fresh water. I intend loving kindness to spread like
fresh spring sunshine to struggling parents so that children
may experience the love and happiness they deserve. 

I am grateful for the complete and immediate manifestation
of these things now. All this and greater things are
happening now, and I don’t have to know how. I release this
WORD into the LAW where it is made manifest – in perfect
order and timing, with the Divine hand of Grace. I am
grateful to be flying as a lightworker on floating feathers
of Divinity, blessed and blissed out – so be it! It is done!

Pre-Celebrate it – to Create it!

Category: Affirmations,conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,law of attraction,LOA doesn't work for me — Anisa @ 2:01 pm

Quick Manifesting Morsel – Vibrational Video Coaching with Anisa Aven

Pre-Celebrate it -to Create it!

The Law of Attraction – Simple is Better!

“Nothing in the Kingdom of Heaven is lost!” my son, Parker, repeated over and over as he walked around the house looking for the lost remote for the flip-flopping, mini-r/c car that Santa left under the tree. A few moments later I hear, “YES!” and I know exactly what just happened, or I think I do. Without looking up from my book, I say, “good… you found it.” He says, “not yet… but I will… YES! COOL! YES!”

This time I look up to see if he’s doing what I think he’s doing. Sure enough… he’s celebrating! Even though he’s NOT yet found the remote, he’s celebrating as if he is already playing with it.

I revel in my own delight watching such a brilliant display of conscious creation. “Wow! He’s intentionally applying the Law of Attraction!” Feeling as proud as any LOA-Loving-Mommie ever, I congratulate myself for talking about the Law of Attraction to my children. And, now realizing he was actually listening?!? Oh, so delicious!

I remember thinking, “Why can’t I do that? After all, it’s just that easy.”

Most of the time, we tend to over-look the simple as not worthy of our attention; opting instead for the more complicated instructions and beliefs that only hard work and paying our dues will result in success.

However, this is often contradictory to what we experience every day – that simple is better: brushing our teeth prevents cavities, smiling feels better than frowning, and eating fresh vegetables right out of the fridge, for example are not only simpler, but better for us! Likewise, applying the Law of Attraction does not have to be complicated. In fact, it’s very simple.

There’s a principle called Occam’s razor (named after mediaeval philosopher and scientist, William of Occam), who put forth the theory that “the best solution to a problem is often and almost always the simplest solution.” Though the principle may seem rather trivial, it is essential for model building. In other words, nature wants life to be simple. With this in mind, it isn’t necessary to do everything the ‘hard way’ or the most complicated way. In fact, not only is it not necessary but it’s inefficient as well.

For example, when we utilize the Law of Attraction to make each day a little easier and more fulfilling, we simplify our lives. By leveraging the power of the Universal Principles to create the small things, we can build our LOA muscles. Eventually, when our conscious creation muscle becomes strong enough, we’ll be able to attract the big wins too. Here’s what we know – there has never been a million dollars created, a soul-mate found, a dream job landed or a rock-hard body experienced that didn’t have it’s conception, gestation, and creation as a result of the Law of Attraction, regardless of the person’s awareness of the law.

Thus, if you can master the law of attraction with the everyday ‘things’ then the championship manifestations will be easier as well. You wouldn’t pick up your first golf club today and next week show up at the Pro-golf tournament expecting a position next to Tiger on the tour. Likewise, the odds are not likely in your favor that you will manifest the lottery just because you’ve learned that “what you think about, you bring about.”

Mastering the art of attraction, like any skill, requires practice. And, just like a golfer that spends hours at the golf range practicing his swing, the more you practice your ‘swing’ the better you’ll get at the game of attraction. So what’s your swing? It’s using your thoughts and emotions to intentionally vibrate in harmony with an end result that you desire. Using our golf analogy, a golfer swings the club to hit the ball. A Law of Attraction practitioner intentionally vibrates (uses thoughts and emotions) to attract a desire.

For example, one way to practice your LOA swing is to pre-celebrate the ‘little wins.’ The act of pre-celebrating produces a vibration that is energetically and magnetically attractive to victory, passion, excitement, enthusiasm and other fabulous experiences. Thus, intentionally celebrating a goal prior to experiencing it is an act of intentional vibration.

For example…

Yes! I celebrate a beautiful day filled with fabulous conversation and uplifting experiences.

Yes! I celebrate with delight, as I enjoy an awesome day at work. I thoroughly enjoyed my co-workers today and had very productive and uplifting meetings. I have a great sense of accomplishment from my day today!

Yes! I celebrate the healthiest check-up my doctor has ever given me… “You’re in great shape! You’re as fit as a teenager.”

Yes! I frolic with joy, and celebrate the smooth flow of cars as I travel to and from my job. I am grateful for the comfortable drive and opportunity to be at peace and in silence with myself and with life.

Yes! I rise joyously and in awe of an incredibly recuperative night’s sleep. I slept better than a baby… I slept like I was on a cloud in heaven. I celebrate feeling energetic and alive!

Now, if that doesn’t sound exciting enough to practice your swing on, remember this is practice and you want to get in a lot of it!

Here’s another idea – how about pre-celebrating unexpected things that you can be indifferent to? Things that you don’t necessarily care a great deal about, but when they appear you’ll most assuredly know it was because YOU celebrated them and thereby intentionally attracted them into your experience.

This is an exercise that Abraham of Jerry and Esther Hicks fame, teaches. My first practice swing was to pre-celebrate hummingbirds! I imagined their tiny little bodies hovering around me. I delighted in the idea of having them come into my garden. I imagined elegant hummingbirds all around me.

As you can probably imagine, within days I started noticing ‘signs’ of hummingbirds. For example, at home depot I went to grab a garden hose and a humming-bird feeder fell on the floor. Then, a girlfriend sent me a sweet thank you note on what else, but humming-bird stationery, a magazine that I subscribe to (not bird watcher’s gazette) was delivered with a featured article inside titled “hummingbird friendly gardens”. I also remember overhearing a conversation while I was out about how a hummingbird flew in this woman’s face and just hovered there for a few seconds outside the store.

After seeing and hearing so much about hummingbirds, I began to wonder where the REAL hummingbirds were. I actually felt inadequate like maybe I wasn’t good enough to attract the real thing! So, I decided to really practice my swing this time by celebrating them. I celebrated hummingbirds for a few more minutes and this time allowed myself to really feel excited and passionate about them. I even jumped up and down this time and I celebrated the wonder of such an incredibly talented, beautiful, masterpiece as the hummingbird. The seemingly fragile but in reality fierce and territorial hummingbird; the gift from God that scientists study to discover and inquire into how we too can reveal the art of hovering the way the hummingbird does. YES! I love hummingbirds, God’s beautiful creatures. I celebrate the wonder of hummingbirds! Yes… hummingbirds! Hummingbirds! Hummingbirds! Beautiful hummingbirds!

I bet you can guess what happened the very next day! Hummingbirds! Hummingbirds! Glorious hummingbirds!

So… let’s make it easy:

3 easy steps to Intentionally Harness the Law of Attraction and The Law of Detachment

1.    Identify what you want and Pre-Celebrate it now
2.    Detach & Let it Go
3.    Prepare to Receive

Remember to assume the best, no matter what occurs because the Universe has your back and all is well all the time. (You have to choose this mindset and at some point your manifestations will catch up to it.) Then, when you notice it’s not quite what you wanted, simply “Course Correct” by pre-celebrating the next edition until you get it more right.

Remember, simple is better and all you really have to do is CELEBRATE and watch what happens!

To wrap up the story… The doorbell rings. Parker says, “Who is it?” And I hear my mom say, “It’s your Mimi!” The door opens and Parker and Ashlyn run to give Mimi a hug. I kiss mom hello, fix some tea, and we settle into the couch to visit. I realize there’s a small lump in the cushion. I put my tea on the side table, stand and lift the cushion to find the remote to Parker’s remote-control car. Of course, he celebrated some more. We watch his performance as he makes that little R/C spin, flip-flop and celebrate its own existence!

Lessons in Detachment 7 of 10: If What You’re Doing Isn’t Working, Do Something Different

Category: Attract Opportunities,Audios Free Downloads,conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,Law of Allowing,law of attraction,Law of Detachment,NLP,Videos — Anisa @ 7:07 am

Why are we studying detachment? Isn’t detachment just a matter of learning to “Let Go and Let the Divine” work in our lives? Yes. However, knowing that we must “let go” consistently and actually doing it are two different things. Stress, for example, in many cases is a clear sign that you are attached to something and in oppositional resistance to your real desires. Everything you desire is in vibrational harmony with the peace and appreciation that comes from being detached and allowing (yes, everything). By practicing the ideas in this series you will engage in consistent peace and more readily know that all is well, no matter what. Master detachment and you will master the art of intentional creation.

This brings us to the topic of today’s lesson in detachment. It is a simple idea really: If what you are doing isn’t working, do something different. This too is an NLP (Neuro-Linguistics programming) pre-supposition. At first consideration, this may seem trite and elementary, as we all know this in theory. However, being detached includes maintaining our clear, connected state of flow in all situations. Thus, if you can make this idea, “If what I’m doing isn’t working, I will choose to do something different” as an ethos, or a way of living, then flow, connection, solution oriented thinking and action oriented behaving becomes a more natural path.

If you want something different, you will have to do something different, and continue to vary your behaviors until you get the result you really want. This underlying assumption automates your intention to be flexible. And, we learned in Lessons in Detachment Video 5, the most flexible person has the most power and influence in any situation. Thus, the more you accept and apply this idea, “If what I’m doing isn’t working, I just need to do something different until I find the method that works” the more detached and vibrationally aligned with your true desires, you become.

In practice, this idea assumes there’s a solution to every problem if you’re prepared to keep looking until you find it. For example, if a person wants to lose weight and get healthy, they must first recognize, “What I’m doing isn’t working, I need to do something different”. If a person wants to succeed in school or succeed or in business, they may have to first realize, “I will have to do things differently than I have before.”

As students of the law of attraction, we’ve learned that what we focus upon expands. And this idea “If what you’re doing isn’t working, do something different. And, you have to vary you behaviors until you manifest the result you desire” shifts our perspective from what’s not working, to “I’m willing to experiment until I find the formula that works.” It’s literally an attitude adjustment and a time proven formula for success.

The most successful people that have ever lived think this way. Thomas Edison, held over 1000 patents including a voice recorder, a battery for an electric car, recorded music, movies, the light-bulb, and of course he was the originator of the crazy concept that we could ALL have electricity inside our homes, businesses, and factories. His ideas, at the time, were completely unrealistic and even absurd. He was successful, by his own admission, not because he was a genius but because he believed success was 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration. He once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” This is the exact same ethos as, “If what I’m doing isn’t working, I choose to do something different.”

I could go on and on about how the most successful people that have ever lived fully embrace and live by this idea. Possibly the most famous of Einstein’s quotes is “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Yet, in our everyday lives we are often insane with repetitive behaviors.

How many people, now be honest, are constantly late for appointments? Is it because you do not possess the capacity to be on time? Not likely. The same old thinking, “Oh… there’s plenty of time” for example’ will produce the same old results, “I can’t believe we are going to be late again!”

What about your relationships? How many times have you tried the same old way to get your needs met only to be disappointed in the lack of change? The same old thinking, “I have to throw a fit to get any results” will produce the same old experience, “They never listen to me”.

The problem is that we get attached and disconnected when we start to feel as though we are out of options, as though it must be a capacity issue; a fear that we or the person we are frustrated with does not possess the capacity for growth, change, or success.

What about money?? How many do we know that desperately want to be financially secure and attract prosperity, yet they continue to behave irresponsibly, over-indulging and behaving recklessly with their money?

This repeated pattern of “I’m affirming and believing in my financial unlimitedness” followed by “I’m so wealthy I can go ahead and spend a bunch of money… “followed by “I cannot believe I’m over-drawn again! I cannot believe I’m such a terrible money manager. When will I ever manifest the prosperity that is supposed to be mine? I just don’t get it! Maybe, I’m just not good enough or it’s not meant to be for me?”

Without the idea, “If what you’re doing isn’t working do something different”, you begin to question your capacity; your innate ability to create and achieve the success you really desire.

When you question your capacity, you are questioning your very core; you are questioning whether or not you actually possess the ability, the talent, and the deservedness to experience love, wealth, health and success. Just the act of wondering whether or not you deserve it, immediately causes distress. The stress of “I’m not good enough” or any derivative thereof is another example of attachment. You see, you shut down the flow of possibility; the flow of the Divine, every time you even ponder for a moment – “what’s wrong with me that I can’t get what I want?” This is another way that we get attached to the outcome. In that moment, you are creating the opposite of what you really desire. And, STRESS is your indicator that you are attached and not practicing the law of allowing.

Here’s a decision that I encourage you to make: Do not question your capacity, question your methodology. If you are not ‘on time’ it’s not your capacity it’s your methodology. If your relationship life stinks, it’s not your capacity that’s the problem, but the way you go about relating to others that’s in question. If you have money troubles, it’s not your capacity for creating wealth that’s in question; it’s the way you go about attracting, managing, and making it that’s in question.

One word of advice – most people will fall short on implementing this idea because it requires effort. And, it requires thinking to embrace the truth that there’s another way, another solution to every problem. Your work will be to stick with it until you find the choice and the behavior that creates the fulfillment you seek.

If what you are doing isn’t working, do something different. Be willing to vary your behavior until you get it, & don’t question your capacity, question your methodology. This one idea – can create an avalanche of prosperity, love, and fulfillment for you. Now, let’s put it into practice.

1) Consider something that you feel STRESSED about.
2) What are you doing?
3) What are 10 ways to do it differently?
4) Choose one.
Imagine the future as you would like it, while trying on this new option/behavior.
5) Go do it.
6) Did it work? Yes, keep doing it. No, do something different.

Lessons in Detachment: Video 6 of 10 Choice is Better Than No Choice

Lessons in the Law of Detachment: Video 6 of 10 Choice is Better Than No Choice

The Law of Attraction cannot be employed without the Law of Detachment. They go hand in hand. And, the Law of Detachment says you must relinquish your attachment to have your desires manifest.

This means that the Essence of detachment is Equanimity (a state of being centered, faithful, aligned and serene, no matter what you see or experience.) In Lessons in Detachment, we will explore exactly what it means to intentionally detach from the outcome and HOW exactly to do it. Be sure to explore all of the detachment videos and you will have a greater understanding of how to finally Let Go, and Let God, create miracles in your life.

Everything you desire is aligned with peace. If you want

to create more love in your life, then obtain greater peace in your heart. If you want to create more prosperity, then obtain greater peace in your heart. Being detached from the
outcome produces that peace in your heart. However, detachment can be tricky and slippery and that’s why I’ve created this series; to help you take The Law of Detachment to a deeper level. When you fully embrace the law of detachment, you become a better manifestor. When you fully understand exactly what it means to remain detached then you leverage the full power of the law of attraction. In fact, you cannot be a masterful creator without integrating detachment.

Now, let’s explore the subject of this lesson on detachment:Choice is better than no choice. (Also an NLP presupposition – a belief that when applied creates a solid foundation upon which to be more intentional and influential in every situation.) Think about this for a moment:“Choice is Better than No Choice.” Now, how do we apply this in our lives to be more allowing; to practice the law of detachment and become more effective conscious creators?

This idea goes hand in hand with the lesson in video 5: The Law of Requisite Variety – translated as the person with the greatest flexibility has the greatest influence.

This idea, that choice is better than no choice helps us to be more flexible in the moment. We get to choose how we respond to each situation; thus taking ownership of our experience.

One of the key tenants that helped me to live a more intentional life, I learned from Jack Canfield in about 1992. He shared with me his equation: E+R= O (the Event plus our Response equals the Outcome. Event + My Response = The Outcome) It is not the event alone that determines the outcome of a situation but the event plus our response to
that event that determines the outcome.

For example, there will be times when you feel you are backed into a corner with no way out. We may feel that you have NO choice. But, you ALWAYS, without exception have choices. It’s a matter of choosing which option is right for you. Even when you are unable to physically choose something different, you still have the choice of your emotions. In fact you have many choices.

Choice is better than no choice – teaches us to be mindful of the truth that we always have options. There’s fight, flight, freeze, and flow, for example.

We can fight! We can strike like a defensive snake! And, sometimes that feels like the best choice.

We can flee or take flight. Or, we can freeze, until we figure out how to respond.

Heck – sometimes it’s even better to play dead as a choice!

Even Playing Dead is a Choice... “Ueghhh…. I’m just going to roll-over and play dead for a minute.”

Or we can also learn to choose to FLOW! We can choose to go with the flow and practice the art of the aikido way. This is a skill that we can develop as we begin to fully embrace

the truth that choice is better than no choice. And, the choice of flow is the most aligned with the law of detachment and the art of allowing.

Let me explain. Morihei Ueshiba, the famous martial artist and founder of Aikido, believed that it was important to extend love and compassion to all, and especially to those who seek to harm others. Aikido is often translated as “the way of unifying with life energy” or as “the way of harmonious spirit.”

Ueshiba’s goal was to create a martial art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury. Out of this philosophy and spiritual path, was born Aikido, a martial art that teaches the student to receive an attack while harmlessly redirecting it. In an ideal resolution, not only is the receiver unharmed, but so is the attacker.

When considering your choices, the highest most aligned choice, will align with no harm across all channels. Thus, flow and the aikido way is one option that uses the energy of the situation for a more enlightened and harmonious outcome. By adopting the idea that choice is better than no choice and combining it with the person with the greatest

flexibility has the greatest influence, you will find yourself living more in the flow of life more often and thus detached and allowing.

I’d like to give you some examples of how to employ Choice is Better than No choice.

You’ve heard of Murphy’s law?

Everything than can go wrong, will go wrong – that’s the summation of Murphy’s law.

When we remember that it is our response to the event that creates the outcome and we always have a choice as to how we respond, then we turn Murphy’s law upside down. For

example, a more harmonious choice would be, “Even if it goes wrong, I choose to see it as perfectly imperfect.”

Another example of a limiting belief (Murphy’s Law) turned upside down, is “Nothing is ever as simple as it first seems.” A choice that is more aligned with the law of detachment would be,“Even if nothing is as simple as it seems, I choose to be comfortable with complexity.”

Here’s one more. The limiting belief that “every activity takes more time than you have” becomes, “even if it takes more time than I have, I choose to eventually have enough time.”

It’s very important that I make the point that Choice is Better than No Choice means having more freedom, flexibility and personal responsibility for your life. All of which are essential for leveraging the power of detachment. I heard a story once that has stayed with me and helped me to understand that even in the most difficult of situations, I

have the power to choose how I respond.

There was once a ruthless warlord that captured a town where there were many monks. The warlord was infamous for killing without cause, slaughtering people for no reason and many monks fled to the hills.

But, one monk remained in prayer. The warlord came upon him and with rage-filled annoyance said, “What are you doing? Don’t you know who I am? I can run my sword through you without blinking an eye.”

The monk finished his prayer, rose
slowly, looked the warlord in the eyes and calmly said,“Don’t you know who I am? You can run your sword through me and I will never blink an eye.”

You see, we get to choose how we respond to even the most difficult situations. And, choice means greater freedom and flexibility; both of which produce greater solutions and enact the law of allowing. How do you practice this?


  • Consider a time when you felt backed into a corner without options.
  • Re-frame it using this new belief: Choice is better than no choice.
  • Consider how it might have been different had you believed that you had options.
  • Ask yourself: How could I have responded with Fight? Flight? Freeze? Flow?

Lessons in Detachment: 3of10 Every Behavior Has a Positive Intent

Category: Audios Free Downloads,conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,Law of Allowing,law of attraction,Law of Detachment,LOA doesn't work for me,NLP,Videos — Anisa @ 11:57 am

Lessons in Detachment: Video 3 of 10 – Every Behavior Has a Positive Intent

Hello! This is Anisa Aven and this is vibrational video coaching #3 of 10 in my series – Lessons in Detachment. The Law of Detachment says you must relinquish your attachment to have your desires manifest. This means that the Essence of detachment is Equanimity – one of being centered – Faithful – Aligned – and Serene – no matter what you see or experience. Detachment can be the most troubling aspect of conscious creation. In Lessons in Detachment – we will explore exactly what it means to intentionally detach from the outcome and HOW exactly to do it. Be sure to explore all of the detachment videos and you will have a greater understanding of how to finally Let Go, and Let God… create miracles in your life.

Detachment is the art of allowing whatever is, to be perfect in and of itself. Which brings us to the subject of this video: Every Behavior Has a Positive Intent (In NLP – Neurolinguistics Programming – this is a key presupposition – this is a BELIEF that when implemented will provide you a steady, stable, and detached foundation.

This one and the next Video/Belief in this series (video #4) will not automatically go over well or easily. There will be many arguments that this is NOT true and much evidence that could refute this idea. Perhaps you’re even saying, “what about lying, cheating, stealing, or mass murder? Are you saying that murderers have a positive intent?” No, hurting others is never a positive or acceptable behavior. And, that’s not the aim of this assumption.

However, there’s always a positive intent underneath the behavior. People believe they will gain something positive or they would NOT choose the behavior. This idea that underneath every behavior, no matter how misguided the behavior, no matter how wrong the behavior, no matter how horrific the behavior – underneath it the person has some belief that there will be a positive gain or they would not do it. Thus, this assumption that every behavior has a positive intent allows us to bypass the judgments (that cause disconnection) and bypass our reactions and instead look for the positive intent underneath the behavior. This re-focusing on the question, “what did they hope to gain from this?” shifts our perspective to one of awareness and potential compassion. When we find the positive intent, we learn to allow people to be people, and that ALLOWANCE is the art of detachment.

Okay – I’ve explained the assumption but so what? How will this help us be detached from the outcome? How will accepting this idea support us in utilizing the power of our minds and the law of attraction? The answer lies in our relationships. ALL emotional turmoil is disconnection from the Divine. And, what’s the cause of much of our disconnection – our emotional turmoil? Relationships! It’s our family, love, co-workers, neighbors and even the relationship we have with the world at large. When we are ill-equipped to understand the motives of others, we easily disconnect from source and when we are disconnected, we attach to our assumptions, our desires, our need to be right, what we believe another should or should not do, what we need from our relationship(s) etc. And ALL attachment, no matter how justified we are causes disconnection from Source. It’s this disconnection that halts our Divine Good – our ability to manifest our true desires.

The Course in Miracles says, “Forgiveness is the central theme that runs throughout salvation.” And, “Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” We cannot leverage the law of allowing without mastering the art of forgiveness. When we integrate this assumption that Every Behavior Has a Positive Intent, we easily slip into compassion and forgiveness – two necessary ingredients for connection and detachment.

This idea That Every Behavior Has a Positive Intent along with the next assumption in this series (People Do the Best they Can – be sure to watch video #4 in this series) can make a significant difference in your ability to detach from the negativity in your relationships. You will find yourself more willing to love and forgive. So, let’s talk about how to implement this idea.

First, understand that just because there’s always going to be a positive intent – some idea that there will be a pay-off to the behavior – does not mean that every behavior is the best way to fulfill a need. It is also not meant to absolve a person of their hurtful actions – they are still responsible for their choices.

Let’s apply this more deeply. For example, consider the man that cheats on his wife. What’s the positive intent under the behavior? Perhaps it’s to experience adrenaline, or the rush of getting away with something. Or since we are just guessing here – perhaps his wife is frigid or crazy or abusive and he just needs to feel alive and loved again. Now, let’s look at it from her point of view. What’s the positive intent underneath whacking her husband with a crow-bar? Perhaps it’s retribution – that internal need to stand up for ourselves, to feel important, special, powerful or acknowledged. Or perhaps she’s afraid for her children and how she will survive without him.

Now remember we are NOT ever saying the behavior is positive or the best way to fulfill our needs but we are choosing to act as if, there’s some positive intent underneath every behavior. And, by figuring this out, we can more readily inspire and create change AND practice detachment.

What about for ourselves – how do we apply this to our lives? Here’s one example, let’s say you want to lose weight, but you have a bad day and all you really want to do is have another piece of chocolate. The behavior is self-sabotaging – eating sweets while trying to lose weight, will not help your cause. However, when we look at ourselves in the mirror and we only see the behavior, it’s hard to love ourselves; we see the failure not the person.

Yet, when we look at the intention underneath the behavior, “I just want to feel better. I just want to experience the deliciousness of life.” There’s a moment there that satisfies our need for yumminess, our need for freedom, our need for attending to our inner desires without judgment, fear, or deprivation. And, by identifying THAT need – THAT positive INTENT – we can a) choose to have compassion and b) choose to find another way to meet that Need. For example, “What else can I do to experience the deliciousness of life?”

Our objective becomes LOOK for the positive intent under the behavior, find a healthy solution for meeting that need. Here’s a resource you may find helpful – to gain a better understanding of our needs, I suggest reviewing Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs. (Search online and you’ll find a visual map.)

By reviewing and studying this model you become more masterful at identifying the positive intent under the behavior. For example, when good people do bad things, often it’s a basic need (Physiological Need – Survival Need) they are trying to meet. I.E. A man steals a loaf of bread to feed his family.

Perhaps, a woman betrays her husband trying to experience more love. Or a philanderer betrays a mate trying to experience the need for achievement or conquest. Our objective is to preserve that intent (that need) by attending to it in a healthier manner and not only can we change our personal behavior without loss but we gain the ability to experience compassion and forgiveness – essential ingredients for practicing the law of detachment.

Here’s an exercise for you: Consider a past transgression against you. Re-frame it using this new assumption. Ask yourself: What was the need or positive intent they were trying to fulfill? Knowing now that they were trying to fill a need, albeit poorly, how would I feel if I had that need?

And, be sure to apply this idea to yourself as well. Extend this exercise to consider a past mistake/ poor choice that you made. Re-frame it using this new belief. Ask yourself: What was the need I was trying to fill? Knowing now that I was just trying to fill a need, what options do I have for filling that need with a more positive behavior?

How to Infuse Certainty into your dreams for successful manifesting.

Category: Attract Prosperity,Audios Free Downloads,conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,law of attraction,limiting beliefs,LOA doesn't work for me,Videos — Anisa @ 10:32 am

Certainty is pure faith that no matter WHAT you see or WHAT you witness or WHAT you hear – ALL is WELL and ALIGNED with The Divine Order.

Certainty is understanding that it is impossible for you to have any wants, needs, or unfulfilled desires. It is IMPOSSIBLE for the Divine Order to NOT support your highest and best good; your most dominant dreams and desires.

In the video coaching segment, I ask you to do an exercise to illustrate how doubts – even one doubt can weaken your entire system, while intentional confidence and conscious certainty, can make all the difference to the fulfillment of your desire.

World class athletes know the power of certainty, they understand what happens when doubt and fear are allowed to pervade their thoughts in critical moments. It’s the meaning of the phrase, ‘he choked.’ It’s what happens when we are choking on our own self-conscious thoughts and doubts and allow those fears to cause us to break-down in confidence in the moment and fumble the ball, miss the shot, etc.

One doubt – one fear – can be lethal if it happens at the right time/moment.

An exercise:
– Find/create a photo/collage that represents what you want.
– Look at it and take notes about how it makes you feel (both negatively and positively.)
– Then, intentionally CHOOSE more faith/certainty/confidence.
– If you can’t find faith – then use Emotional Freedom technique to eliminate the doubt.

Be sure to add your comments/feedback below! I have some ideas for additional Certainty vibrational video instructions… I’ll post those over the next few weeks and will attend to your questions, if you post them below. Thank you!

The Universe Has Your Back – Trust it

Category: Attract Opportunities,conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,law of attraction,limiting beliefs,LOA doesn't work for me — Anisa @ 4:18 pm

Q: Dear Anisa,

I’ve had loads of success with the LOA, right down to
manifesting the kind of weather I want IMMEDIATELY, but
there’s something really close to my heart that I’ve been
‘working on’ for a long time, and I find that I get
stumped/discouraged/overwhelmed sometimes because, well,
this is bigger. I decided that I wanted this particular
thing to be really special and magical, but in order for it
to be truly wonderful, I had to put down all the important
details that would make it so. Here’s the stumper: I get
overwhelmed by having to visualize all those details. I have
about 50, and seeing them all just makes visualizing seem
more like work than fun. I know what I want very clearly
when I put it on paper, but seeing it all in my head is
overwhelming and feels too good to be true. Any suggestions
about how to approach “The List”? Thanks so much for your
time : )

A: Yes! I’m so excited about your question and thank you
for pushing the envelope on your conscious creation

First, I’m not convinced it’s the number of items on the
list that is the problem, as much as the attachment to
HAVING to HAVE it be EXACTLY as you WANT it. Overwhelm is
one of the vibrations associated with attachment and
resistance to the flow. When we feel negative, in this
case, overwhelm, it’s our inner guide telling us that we
either do not believe we deserve or can have this or we fear
that we are not capable of creating it. By directing your
inner will to release your attachment and surrender to
whatever is Divinely Ordered for right now, you realign with
possibility and faith.

Remember, as long as we are attached, overwhelm will remain,
no matter how short your list becomes. Thus, when you can
visualize without overwhelm (or any negative emotion),
that’s when you know you’ve released the negative energy
that is blocking it from manifesting.

I recommend a nice chat with the Universe/God:

“Big U – I know you have my back and are constantly
conspiring on my behalf. I am grateful for this. And, I am
open to receiving the entire picture – everything I desire
and all that my heart delights over, now. And, I am also
open to receiving whatever I am aligned with in this moment.
I release my attachment to having to have it all right now.
I release my attachment to having it all exactly as I think
it should be. I release my need to prove I am a powerful
creator by having it precisely as I imagine it. Now, I
won’t lie – I believe I’ve created a fantastic vision that
includes all that I desire, so if it manifests this way I
will be exuberant. However, I’m also really okay if it
doesn’t. I know that I receive exactly what’s right and
Divinely Ordered in this moment according to my highest
good. I also know that I have many inner most desires and
that you, Big U, are working to combine all of them into my
most magical fulfillment – only you can do this in such a
way as to give me everything I want, even those things I
cannot fully articulate just yet. I trust the Divine Order
and let it go. For this Truth and my total fulfillment, I
dance in celebration!”

Now, you may be thinking, “…she doesn’t get it. I know
down to the minutest detail what I want and how I want it.
I can’t just let all that go – in order for this to be truly
special I must manifest it exactly this way. Otherwise
what’s the point? I’ll just have to figure this one out by

To this all I can say is, “I’ve been there and good
luck.” When you figure out how to manifest something
exactly, please send me postcards from the other side.

Forgive my feistiness today, but I’ve learned the hard way
that we don’t WANT to manifest something exactly. No matter
how much we believe we know about what we want, the Universe
always knows better. The harder we try to make it exactly
the way we want it, the more likely we are to ignore the
riches that do appear; the more likely we are to be
disappointed; the more likely we are to destroy other
aspects of our inner most desires in the process. Besides,
we are not creating in a vacuum – there’s a million other
desires that we’ve launched, a million other emotions that
are still out there marinating and coming forth into
physical form. If we had to identify ALL aspects of every
desire we’ve ever had and line them up perfectly in order to
be happy… eurghhhh! Well, need I say more?!?

Give it up and hand it over to God, first.

Now, once you’ve allowed yourself to truly release your
attachment, THEN you can start visualizing and expanding on
the specifics. For example, you have this big list, right?
Take each item on the list separately and imagine what it
would feel like to experience just that ONE aspect/detail.
What does that ONE detail feel like? How will you know that
detail exists? What is it about that detail that makes it
so glorious? Fantasize and play with each detail as if it
were the ONE thing that you enjoy most in that moment.
Then, add the next detail, and the next, and the next. The
moment you start to feel like “Oopss that last detail was
one too many”, return to your chat with God and back off the
details until you can play again.

The key is to imagine it and live, breathe, and experience
it so fully in your fantasy that you are entirely satisfied
even without it. And, be as specific as you can be without
getting attached to the outcome. The moment you tighten up
and attach, is the moment you turn it back over to the

I look forward to hearing of your success!

7 Keys to Manifesting: Key 5 – Resilience & Expectation

Category: conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,law of attraction,LOA doesn't work for me,Videos — Anisa @ 3:03 pm

From the 7 Keys to Manifesting Your Dreams, Key 5: Resilience & Expectation
Video 1 of 2:

Video 2 of 2:

When something goes wrong do you tend to bounce and say ‘bring it on’ or do you tend to fall apart and say, “I give up”?

Many of you have fantastic, majestic goals of vast proportions. And, many of you just want your simple needs, like plenty of money to pay your bills or take a vacation with the kids fulfilled.

Whatever goal you have, it’s important to PLAN for resilience. Previously, I’ve suggested that you take out your goal and reverse engineer each milestone along the way. Then, with the milestone in hand, envision and add vibrational life to it – energizing it with your thoughts, beliefs, and intentions.

Now, I do not want to suggest that you ‘plan’ for problems but I do want to encourage you to PLAN for how you intend to BOUNCE back when setbacks, obstacles, or challenges present themselves. And, they will – not because you are destined for difficulty but because CHANGE requires transformation; change requires your life to be altered, modified, and adjusted in some way in order for you to receive that which you desire.

You see with every change you seek, there must be a change in your current reality to make room for the new reality.

For example, how do you create a better job without leaving your current one? At some point, even if you manifest a ‘fun-filled going away party,’ you still have to leave the old job behind.

Likewise, if you want to re-create your ideal relationship, you will have to leave the current relationship behind, emotionally and spiritually, if not actually physically before you can birth a new or renewed relationship.

Imagine achieving your ideal health and wellness without changing your physical fitness or eating habits. Can it really be done? Sure, we’re unlimited – but how many people do you know that have actually achieved total wellness while sitting on their couch just thinking good thoughts?

Thus, all change and creation requires a willingness to ‘pay the price’ for receiving the goal. Do not mistake what I’m saying here. I’m not saying it HAS to be difficult or HAS to cost too much for you to achieve your dreams. However, I AM saying that you will be met with conditions that may appear as a challenge before you will have the opportunity to make room for the goal to be fulfilled.

Your work is to be resilient and choose to BOUNCE with the change. Choose to know each ‘challenge’ is nothing more than one change that is occurring on the way to the fulfillment of your dream.

If you know ahead of time, that change must occur and you choose to be resilient before you EVER get there, then you are valiantly ahead of the game. While others will be saying, “Why me? Why is this happening like this?” You’ll be saying, “Bring it on! I’m ready! I’m strong and nothing will stop me from achieving my dream.”
PLAN for RESILIENCE! Make up your mind ahead of time how you intend to BOUNCE!


Remember, what we put our attention upon expands. We attract into our lives whatever we think and believe the most.

Now, I group Expectation with Resilience as the 5th key because we want to Expect things to go our way but we must choose to be resilient when the outcome isn’t exactly what we intentionally expected.

You see, we often forget that we also get what we expect. As intentional creators, we launch dreams of colorful master-pieces filled with magnificent stories of lavish abundance, extraordinary love affairs, accomplishment and accolades. This is important and we have fun visualizing our successes.

Then, we go about our day ‘expecting’ what we’ve always expected…

… oh, this is going to be a hard conversation. She’s never easy to talk to.
…oh, there’s no way I can learn all this material by the deadline.
…oh, I’m not good at this type of project.
…oh, I’m surrounded by people who just don’t get it.

Do you see where I’m headed here? We have all these insidious ‘ideas’ about ourselves and those around us.

…oh, I hope I get a raise but they keep saying we should expect cut-backs.
…oh, my mate has never remembered our anniversary.
…oh, she’s not going to do what she says. I just can’t depend upon her word.

Insidious expectations – they quietly permeate so many of our waking moments that we disregard them as nothing more than normal mental banter.

However, thinker beware, these thoughts are not just benign chitchat!

One flea may not be a problem, but twenty become 200, become 2000, become 200,000 and very, very quickly become a malignant menace.

Insidious expectations, left unaddressed will also multiply. And, like a vibrational parasite, these negative expectations suck the life out of our positive intentions.

It’s important to know ahead of time how you will handle the outcome of negative expectations. (How will I be resilient?)

We also want to become aware of our fears, doubts, and limiting ideas that inspire the negative expectation.

I uncover my fears and doubts by asking simple questions:

– What are my negative expectations?
– What am I afraid will happen?
– What will disappoint me?
– What’s the worst thing that could happen here?
– What could go wrong?
– Then, I ask – am I afraid or concerned that these things will happen?

Once you’ve discovered the fear, worry, or doubt – you can shift it by simply focusing upon the opposite of the fear.
For example:

…oh, I hope I get a raise but they keep saying we should expect cut-backs.
–>becomes – I choose to be hopeful and trust that the raise is already mine.
…oh, my mate has never remembered our anniversary.
–>becomes –“Why is it that my mate remembers our anniversary?” Or, if that’s too far-fetched try, “I choose to relax, ask for my needs to be met and I enjoy being pleasantly surprised.”
…oh, she’s not going to do what she says. I just can’t depend upon her word.
–>becomes “I’m willing to trust in her ability to see this commitment through.”

Once you identify the negative idea, you want to shift your attention to something more aligned. For example, “I am hopeful.” Or “I am willing to forego all preconceived ideas.” Or “I choose to have a beginner’s mind.”

Then, if you use EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) any recurring limiting expectations could be eliminated and released forever! In fact, I highly encourage you to consider how you go through your day.

Do quiet but sinister expectations sabotage your joy? Are these seemingly normal thoughts eating away at your  dreams without you realizing it’s even happening?

Remember, when we go ahead and deal with the potential danger of one ‘flea’, it’s far easier than waging war against the consequence of fleas fornicating in multiplicity. (That does sound really nasty!) The same goes double for our negative expectations!

Get rid of them now and get aligned with your positive dreams! Then, choose to be resilient and bounce with each change. Follow this bounce with an intentionally directed expectation of Hope, Faith, and eager expectation!

I Do What Must be Done with Zest and Enthusiasm!

Category: conscious creation,Creative Manifesting,emotional freedom technique,law of attraction,LOA doesn't work for me,Videos — Anisa @ 4:16 pm

Quick Manifesting Morsel with Anisa Aven

I Do What Must be Done with Zest and Enthusiasm!!!! (Is this your battle cry? Then read on to find out why it should be.)

It takes 10,000 acorns to produce just three Oak trees.

Now, ask yourself, is that Oak tree exhausted, frustrated,

and weakened because it had to spawn 10,000 seeds before

duplicating itself into another masterpiece?

This is what nature expects regarding creation and

procreation. Think about it – some frogs lay as many as

30,000 eggs to ensure its species. And, to ensure our own

species a healthy man’s sperm count is upwards of 20 million

per milliliter. This means that every successful

spermatozoon fought off somewhere between 90 million and 400

million other eager applicants to become the triumphant one!

Now, what would happen if that Oak Tree just decided,

“10,000 acorns?!? Forget it! That’s just too much effort?”

Our world would obviously be void of Oak Trees, frogs and


If the Oak tree did give up, it’s possible that it might

briefly enjoy the life of indolent ease. However,

eventually it would realize that it was missing something

critical; it would realize that its heart was void of

purpose. Apathy would ensue and finally death, as death

stands at the doorway of apathy. After all, if it wasn’t

meant to plant seeds, propagate, and prosper, the swelling question

becomes, “why do I bother to exist at all?”

Fortunately for those who have ever climbed a grand Oak or

taken a nap under one’s majestic, protective shade, the Oak

tree doesn’t look at those 9,997 acorns as failures, or too

much effort!

The credo of ‘I do what must be done – because that’s justoccurs naturally in the plant and animal kingdom.

what I do’

I ask, in the spirit of exploring the essential elements of

intentional creation, what if we, the brain-enamored,

bipedal mammals could choose this attitude?

What if instead of saying, “But, I don’t want to put forth 10,000 acorns

before I get a tree!!!” We said, “I am willing to put forth

whatever effort is required, even if it’s 10,000 or more!”

An Oak tree doesn’t say, “This is just too much effort;

everything I do requires too much work and 10,000 acorns is

just too long to wait. Nothing I ever do comes easy or works

out for me.”

No, an acorn becomes an Oak tree because that’s what it

seeks to do. An Oak tree spawns 10,000 acorns if that’s what

it takes to propagate because that’s what it does. It

doesn’t fight it. It doesn’t struggle against it. It just

does what it does. What if YOU could ‘just’ do what you must

do with zest and enthusiasm instead of begrudgingly?

If, as a conscious creator, we could look at our desires and

what we want out of life; look at our goals, and just do

what must be done with a similar attitude, then the natural

consequence would be our own majestic manifestations of

magnificent proportions.

Oh, and the splendid byproduct of such an attitude would be

more joy, fulfillment, peace, prosperity, and flow in the

process! As Abraham (through Jerry and Esther Hicks) calls

it, this is what ‘Getting into the Vortex’ really means.

We must remember that it’s the resistance to ‘hard work’

that makes work hard.

It’s the resistance to ‘taking too much time’ that makes

time stand still.

It’s the resistance to ‘effort’ that makes effort


When we are in the vortex, we ‘whistle while we work.’ We

put our heads down, pull up our bootstraps when necessary

and JUST DO WHAT MUST BE DONE with enthusiasm.

And, remember, as conscious creators, ALL you want to do is stay That’s the entire purpose of your every day

in that vortex.

intention – to BE in the vortex, the flow, the conscious

connection and awareness of Spirit Within as your one and

only source and supply.

If instead of the attitude, “this is hard; this takes too

much effort; this is too much of a struggle;’ you just put

out the acorns knowing that one of them, two of them, three

of them will eventually take off and take off big; become

that magnificent Oak tree that you really desire then your

big dreams as well as little desires would reliably


If you seek to utilize the power of the law of attraction to

create magnificent success, I suggest you first seek to

create an attitude of persistence, commitment, resilience,

and most importantly a willingness to do what must be done

with ZEST and ENTHUSIASM! That’s actually one of my favorite

affirmations from Catherine Ponder’s book, The Dynamic Laws

of Prosperity: “I do what must be done with zest and


When I was about seven months pregnant with my daughter,

Ashlyn, I was walking out of the gym when I saw shattered glass all over the ground. I remember thinking,

“Oh my! Someone broke something.” Well, I was right. What

they broke was my car window to steal my purse and

briefcase! Well, I can honestly remember thinking, “Ahh,

bummer. And oh well, let me just clean it up and move

along.” Then, I realized that in addition to my wallet,

money, and credit cards they had my Catherine Ponder book!

That’s when I got mad! You see, it was perfectly

highlighted, dog-eared, and every magical affirmation,

quote, and meaningful theory was pulled forth for me in my

margined shorthand notes.

Her simple affirmation, “I do what must be done with zest

and enthusiasm!” changed my entire outlook on ‘work’ and

‘getting ahead’ and ‘effort’. This was a new concept for me.

It’s safe to say that I’ve always been goal oriented and a

go-for-your-dreams kind of gal. However, I never did it with

zest and enthusiasm?!?! In fact, the ‘harder’ it was the

better my story. You know what I mean ‘my story’, right?!?

When I moved to California, fresh out of high school, barely

18, with no money, no place to live, no job, no relatives,

no car and only one friend, it was indeed ‘very hard.’ I can

remember eating peanut butter and crackers for -forever! I

walked to job interview after job interview to get a job. I

remember walking more than 8 hours one day just filling out

job applications!

And, hey – it’s a good story now. I get to share with my

children my own version of, “I walked 5 miles to school

every day in freezing snow, barefoot and uphill – both


However, I didn’t do it with any kind of ‘zest and

enthusiasm’. In fact, I bet that had I come from a place of

zest, enthusiasm, willingness, openness, optimism and

cheerfulness, I would NOT have had to eat peanut butter

nearly as long and I bet someone would have hired me sooner!

That’s how the law of attraction works. I knew I would

eventually knock on the right door at the right time to get

a job, but I made it more difficult with my resistance to

just being at peace with the process. Maybe it’s because I

wanted the ‘story’, or maybe it’s because I thought ‘life’s

supposed to be hard’, or ‘I’m not worthy of having it be

easy’. Or, maybe, it was hard because I fought what needed

to be done so fiercely.

So, how do YOU allow yourself to relax comfortably into the

10,000 seeds that must be planted?

You gain power and peace, by focusing on today’s seed and

paying attention to this moment, living in the now with zest

and enthusiasm.

Remember the allegory:

I’m so sorry if I mislead you. Manifesting in reality is not always easy, nor is it supposed to be.

Q: Dear Anisa,

Firstly, let me say that you are an amazing person doing a
wonderful job in helping so many people change their lives.
However, I need to let you know that what you have is a gift
and it is simply not available to everyone.

Like not everyone can be a fast runner.  Years ago when I
first learned about creating abundance I was over the moon
that I could turn my life around.  I commenced in earnest,
last year when I discovered your site I really picked up the
pace.  Doing whatever you suggested.  However, my life is
now a sheer living hell, nothing I tried to create ever
happened.  In fact stuff so horrible I couldn’t even dream
of came to be for me.

Last night two people hurt me in a way I can’t even begin to
describe.  I now know that my life lesson is to know how
horrible, ugly, unworthy and to never stray from this
because it hurts too much when it comes crashing down.
Please warn people that not everyone is able to fulfill
their dreams.  – R in Australia.

A: My friends in creation, I owe you an apology.

My friend that wrote this heartfelt letter to me is correct.
I have done you a terrible disservice.  I have distracted
you from the essence of Truth. Although my intention has
been positive as I wanted you to know that you are loved;
you are powerful beyond words; you are worthy and deserving
of the fulfillment of your biggest dreams.  But, I have
neglected to shake up this ‘Truth’ with the practical advice
that ‘you can’t get there through thoughts alone’.

Unfortunately, when I try to limit the length of my articles
I end up omitting Truths that make the words more accurate.

For example, I’ve supported misinformation such as “we can
have our cake and eat it too.” By not also driving home the
importance of understanding the law of balance, (the law of
compensation) that says ‘there’s always a price to pay for
every fulfillment’, I’ve mislead you. By supporting the
thought that as unlimited conscious creators we do not have
to compromise, negotiate, or ever surrender to a lesser
reality at times, I’ve encouraged an impractical
relationship with fantasy.

I’ve unwittingly misdirected you in focusing on the
‘external’ as the Source of your supply when your Internal
Being is in fact the ONLY source and supply of ALL things
good and bad in your life.

I’ve neglected sharing with you critical steps that must be
taken to achieve the fulfillment you desire. I’d like to set
the record straight.

1)    There is always a price to pay, an exchange of energy
that must occur, for a goal to manifest in physical form.

For example – the achievement of ‘health’ requires a person
to give up the benefits of being unhealthy.  The
manifestation of a mate requires a person to give up aspects
of their independence.  Or, the creation of wealth requires
a person to become adept at managing money and thus the loss
of the comfort of financial indifference.

These ‘losses’ cannot be avoided just because we know
conscious creation.  Of course, we can create a comfortable
resolution and compromise but it is never accurate to
believe we can have ALL things we decide without loss,
exchange, or compromise.  This is the law of balance and
compensation, and there will always be a price we must be
willing to pay to achieve our dreams.

Until we accept and embrace the ‘cost’ we will forever be
disappointed in our creative abilities and experiences.

2)     You cannot become a masterful creator through force.  NO
amount of visualization, affirmation, and positive thinking
alone will support your long term success and self-love.

This has been scientifically proven. Affirmations don’t work
and in fact can negatively spoil our self-esteem when, like
my friend R. in Australia, we realize that it doesn’t work
for us. According to a recently published study in
Psychological Science, “individuals with low self-esteem
actually felt worse about themselves after repeating
positive self-statements such as “I am a lovable person” or
“I will succeed.”  And this negative feeling did not relent
when the participants became more insistent, tenacious, or

When we feel ‘negative’ we attract negatively.  We cannot
deny our negative feelings and expect to manifest positive

We can, however, turn to the Spirit Within and resolve the
disconnection, thus resolving the negativity.

3)    As long as your happiness is dependent upon the
obtainment of a visualized goal your fulfillment will be
short-lived at best.

It is NOT the manifestation of your desires that will create
happiness.  It is the manifestation of happiness with what
IS that creates the manifestation of your desires.

It is not ‘money’, or ‘the outcome of a goal’, or ‘your job’
or ‘your spouse,’ or anything outside of you that is
responsible for your Joy or Prosperity.  Nothing outside of
YOU is ever the CAUSE of your experience.

4)    Detachment is more than the act of handing your desires
over to the Universe and trusting that they will manifest.
Detachment is more than being able to say, “this or
something better”
or “I trust in the Divine to bring this
about in Perfect Order and Divine Timing.”

is the result of a solid faith, an unwavering
conviction in the all-providing activity of the Divine Mind
as the Source of ALL your good.

If you truly accepted that it is your Birthright to
experience Love, Joy, Peace, and Prosperity; that it is your
natural and inseparable state of grace to have your needs
met and your dreams fulfilled, would you ever judge what is
as ‘wrong’ or inappropriate?

No. You would instead, look at what is, give thanks for the
contrast and become excited about your renewed clarity.  You
would then simply claim what you intend to experience

If you KNEW that no person and nothing could remove you from
your natural state of fulfillment; and that it is actually
impossible as a Divine Child of God with Unlimited Potential
to NOT have your wants, needs, and desires fulfilled, then
you would rest patiently, knowing that all is well and that
which you desire is in fact revealing itself already.

5)    Although we play a co-creative role in all of our life’s
experiences, we are not ‘thoughtfully’ responsible for
creating bad things.

It is not accurate to say that the person that has cancer
‘created’ it because of their negative thoughts, or because
they were irresponsible with their health and emotional

Super-annoying LOA fanatics will say crazy things like,
“well… they must have created the death of their child.”
This heartless and ignorant rhetoric casts a shadow on all
seekers of Truth as brainwashed, crazy cult members!   This
is metaphysical malpractice and should not be tolerated or

Now, I also need to share what I feel is more accurate.  We
have a responsibility and we play a creative role in every
experience, including ‘when bad things happen’.

However, it is inaccurate from our limited perspective to
sit in judgment of ‘what is’ as bad, negative, wrong, or

While there is NOT some higher, external force asserting its
will over us or a pre-determined destiny that we have no
influence over, we are collaborating with a Higher Order
that is always aligned with our Higher Intentions.

I can say this with certainty because as an intentional
being, that knows how to apply the laws of the Universe, I
too have manifested great struggles and challenges.

I’ve collaborated with my higher self to manifest disease-
scares, physical abuse, abandonment, divorce, failure, my
son’s health challenges and birth defect, my financial rise
and fall on repeated occasions, and many more opportunities
for self-pity than I can share in one sitting.

In the end, these challenges have brought forth my passion
for teaching, my unquenchable thirst for Truth, and my
ability to believe in myself in ways that no ‘easy
manifestation’ ever could.

While those challenges were difficult, I know that I am a
better teacher and example because I courageously faced and
overcame those challenges.  This, for me, is WHY I
participated in the experience and creation of failure and
challenge.   And, I wouldn’t change those experiences for

6)    I will not take back the Truth that you are unlimited.
This Divine Inheritance is not reserved for those of us who
are ‘gifted’ or somehow more special or lovable.  The energy
that creates worlds is available to each of us equally.

7)    There’s no silver bullet but there is a spiritual path
that many, many, many teachers have revealed.

First stop on the path:  Meditation. No spiritual seeker
ever gained enlightenment without meditation.  This is a
fact.  While there are many forms of meditation that will
support enlightenment, there’s no form of all-encompassing
enlightenment that occurs without meditation.

Second stop on the path: Self-Awareness. If we do not
clearly see where we are, we cannot get where we want to go.
Through resolute self-assessment we determine what is
aligned with our values and higher intentions and what is
not.  This is the path to change, growth, and ultimately
oneness with the Divine Inheritance we desire.

Third stop on the path: Service. As we align with our Higher
Self, we stop focusing on ‘our needs as uber-important’ and
start looking for opportunities to serve.  This shift brings
forth a heightened sense of joy and meaning.  This becomes
the substance, the emotional vibration, that in turn becomes
responsible for the fulfillment of the ‘things we said we
wanted’ in the first place.

Alas, this article is too long and still incomplete. There’s
so much more I’d like to communicate.

The bottom line is I cannot take back the Truth that you are
gifted and have the power to create your dreams.   I do,
however, apologize for confusing the issue by implying that
it’s an effortless road.   Enlightenment requires work.
However, ask anyone that has stayed the course, it’s worth

I hold only one vision for you:  Completely fulfilled,
supported, and loved.
