Do you find yourself saying, “Of course not, where do you think I live, in some fairy tale or something?” Isn’t it obvious that we live in a limited world? Isn’t having enough of what we’d like, let alone an abundance or enough to waste, just a pipedream?
What if it weren’t?
Does your point of view that there’s a limitation to what you can actually have reflect a reality? Or is reality just reflecting your point of view?
Your reality reflecting your point of view is actually how it works here!
You could escalate your rate of beating yourself up for not having everything you desire right now, if you like.
Or, you could go “Yippee! My point of view creates my reality! Since I create my point of view I can change that right now!” You could even ask a question, such as, “What would it take?”
Would you be willing to change your reality by changing your point of view? Is it possible it could be the easiest change you’ve made yet, a lot less work than the eternal struggle to get whatever you’ve decided you want or lack?
If you decide to become radical enough to actually use the tools presented here to change your point of view and your reality, there are a couple of things it could be helpful to you to know.
One of these is that it can take time for the universe to arrange everything you’ve asked for. Sometimes things you ask for can take years to show up. If you exclaim, “It’s not working!” guess what? It won’t! “It’s not working” is a conclusion. Every conclusion you make stops the universe from sending you anything you’ve previously asked for. It’s not your best choice.
Perhaps unfortunately, you are not the only one involved. There are other people on the planet. It takes the universe some time to arrange all those other folks in the correct positions to deliver to you what you’ve asked for.
It can also be helpful to recognize that what you ask for will always look different than you thought it would look. Yes, “always!” says Dr. Dain Heer, author of Being You: Changing the World and co-developer of Access Consciousness®.
Heer continues, “The way you thought it was going to look was based on all your judgments of what it should look like, not based on awareness of what it could look like. Your judgments of what it should look like kept you from being aware of what it could look like. And all those points of view about what it should look like are precisely why it could not show up before now!”
In case that sounds like the most unsolvable zen koan yet, here’s an example. Gary Douglas, the founder of Access Consciousness® and best-selling author, recalls a woman who did a class on money and prosperity with him. Several weeks later she called him up, demanding her money back because in her view, “nothing had changed.” On interviewing her, he found out she had been given an entire designer wardrobe and a car, both worth thousands of dollars. Douglas suggested the problem was not with a change in her ability to create wealth, but in her inability to see the value of what she had received.
Another way of looking at the abundance or the lack thereof in your life is to recognize that everything you consider a problem or limitation in your life is an area where you have chosen to be less than fully conscious. If you were fully conscious, the problem could not exist. So when you ask for something to change that lack, you are asking for more consciousness. From the place of more limited consciousness, is it even possible to see what the more conscious place would be like?
Fortunately, there are some simple tools out of this conundrum. One of the easiest is to ask questions and, better yet, to live as the question. Every conclusion locks you back into the very limitation you’re looking to get out of, and every question creates more possibilities. Which one would you like to choose?
Questions, by the way, are not about getting an answer. Questions are about creating awareness. That awareness may come instantly, or it may come some time later. So you don’t have to hesitate in asking a question because you have no idea what “the answer” is. What you’re really looking for is awareness, and the universe has that. The whole reason for asking the question is to invite the universe to share that awareness with you, which you do by stepping beyond conclusion into question.
Some great questions to use are:
How does it get even better than that?
What else is possible here?
What are the infinite possibilities?
What’s right about this I’m not getting?
What if changing whatever lack you are experiencing could be as easy as all this? What if you were willing to give these tools a try? You could just have nothing to lose but your lack of receiving everything you’d really like to have.
Many of the concepts here and so many more come from Dr. Dain Heer’s book, Being You, Changing the World, available from the accessconsciousness.com site as well as amazon.com. He also presents 3.5 day workshops in several locations globally that expand on this and so many other life-changing tools. These classes are available either by attending live or by live-streaming them via the Internet from your own home. Information about these classes is available at www.accessconsciousness.com where you can search for Dr. Dain Heer’s classes.
