The mind and your reality.

The world is a looking glass, it gives back to every man a true reflection of his own thoughts. We live in a world created by our own thoughts. There is no reality, but a reality created within ourselves. Rule your mind or it will rule you. There’s no point living for the future if you do not know how to live now.

This moment is all you truly have, because happiness is not a destination, but a way of life. The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment. Watch this inspired and thought provoking video:

There is a very intimate connection between cannabis and mysticism which dates back to the earliest times of human civilization.

History is filled with insurmountable evidence showing that cannabis was used a variety of spiritual and ritualistic practices. Cannabis enjoyed a respected status in various cultures as a gateway to experiencing the heights of spiritual transcendence.

The use of cannabis for spiritual elevation and worship permeates various aspects of history with cannabis being used as a means of gaining higher spiritual connections which create more electrifying mystical encounters.

Cannabis and Mysticism Across Various Civilizations

The use of cannabis for mysticism is prevalent in history and cut across various geographical locations, traditions, and civilizations with different heights of involvement and applications. There are many accounts of the use of cannabis as a channel to gain entry into the non-physical dimension. There have also been many indications and testimonies on that reinforce the relevance of cannabis in enabling the mind to gather awareness of mystical and nonphysical developments.

Additionally, there has been a widespread integration of cannabis in different types of sacred practices globally. What is referred to as “microdosing” in contemporary times often provides a fantastic way to prepare the mind for a brilliant spiritual encounter. Just a little amount of cannabis would stimulate the mind while enabling a greater awareness of spiritual realities.

Cannabis has an irrefutable reputation for facilitating entry into some of the most unreachable and far-flung areas of the subconscious. Cannabis enables the mind to reach lost memories, thoughts, and imaginations that effectively triggers a supernatural encounter. Without a doubt, cannabis is capable of strengthening the operations of the mind in ways that produce elevated mental processes and mystical encounters. Cannabis would enable profound cerebral operations, deeper and more gratifying introspections and soul searching while catapulting you to the threshold of ideological and divine enlightenment.

Marijuana plant has many constituents that provide spiritual elevation and insight. There have been many reports from users about increased spiritual awareness and amplified reasoning about dimensions that were once completely nonexistent to consciousness.

Cannabis as a Booster to Spirituality

Unarguably, cannabis provides the deepest form of clarity and ones with different dimension while enabling profound meditation that brings about tremendous revelations and awareness.

Cannabis strengthens consciousness and provides the body with the required amount of vigor for a worthwhile meditation. Cannabis offers great support for yoga practice and Yoga dates back thousands of years to the Shiva cults and was a highly beneficial ritualistic process. Cannabis provides the required vigor for the body while stimulating the mind for a profoundly gratifying assessment of self and various realities while creating a very fulfilling spiritual encounter.

Cannabis is particularly relevant in the area of introspection, facilitating an intense session of cerebral exploration that produces unmistakable clarity and insight that gives a deeper understanding of the spiritual.

Through self-knowledge, you recognize your divine nature and the deeper purpose to life.

You create a larger context in which to view your existence. You learn how to interpret and organize your experiences. You develop an inner connection with all creation. Self-knowledge helps you blend world and spirit.

Along the way you face the demon of attachments. Some attachments are healthy, such as those to family and friends. But you must release your need to control other people and events. You must deal with challenging situations or choose to let them go. Self-knowledge strengthens your ability to grow and expand your sense of self.

1. Develop the Capacity for Concentration and Stillness with Meditation

Quiet times alone help you awaken to the truth of your divine nature. For a short while you step away from the constant demands of the outside world. You let go of false beliefs and illusions. You let go of feelings of separation. During times of stillness you free yourself from habitual patterns that limit your spiritual growth.

Meditation relaxes the body, calms the mind and renews the spirit. You access a deeper state of awareness. You increase your creativity. You are better able to concentrate. Meditative techniques vary. You may focus on your breath. You may repeat a mantra or affirmation. You may walk quietly and mindfully. Meditation may be the most powerful tool for developing a clear, focused mind.

2. Cultivate Mindfulness as Essential for a Conscious Life

By paying attention to each present moment, you appreciate the fullness of being alive. Habitual ways of thinking and acting disconnect you from the now. Fear distracts you. Impatience robs you of life’s joy. Many of your bumps and bruises occur because of a lack of mindfulness.

Mindfulness simply means paying attention. You give your entire awareness to the present moment. You use past experience to enhance the meaning of the present. You let go of your need to rush into the future. Being mindful helps you focus on what matters the most to you.

3. Acquire Knowledge of the World Around you and Within you

To gain self-knowledge you must let go of limiting beliefs that inhibit your learning and growth. Examples of these beliefs abound. “I can’t do it. I don’t deserve it. It will never happen.” Examine these beliefs and especially your interpretation of them. Talk to friends who encourage you, not those who increase your doubts.

If you feel confused and overwhelmed, you can seek more information. Consider taking a course of study. Read new books on specific subjects. Most important, remain open-minded and able to ask questions. Awareness of both inner and outer worlds increases your self-knowledge and sense of wholeness.

As you recognize your divine nature, you grasp the deeper purpose of life that underlies all existence. You let go of unhealthy attachments that do not serve this purpose. In your life journey, you encounter obstacles and difficulties that obscure the truth of your divine nature. But just as the tiny acorn contains what is necessary for the mighty oak tree. You have all you need within to accomplish your purpose for living. You are guided by a Higher Power and inner wisdom. As you blend world and spirit, you increase your self-knowledge and expand your sense of self.

Do you want to ask the universe for something you want and you haven’t find a way that works for you yet?

The law of attraction is one of the most powerful laws of this Universe. It works on the principle that like attracts like. This means that you attract into your reality experiences, events and people that are aligned with your energy and vibration.

Everyone and every experience that comes into your life is a teacher in some way that is being drawn to you at your current state of consciousness.

If we believe this to be true, then we can also actively change our energy and our vibration in order to attract a different set of experiences or opportunities into our lives.

When we uplift our energy and our level of consciousness, our external environment mirrors the same and our energy starts to attract a new set of experiences.

Because we are co-creators of our destiny, we also have the power to create and manifest events in our lives as well. We can send our requests out into the Universe, almost like we are casting a wish and watching it return to us.

If you are looking to manifest or create an event in your life, whether it is attracting a new lover, money, a new job or simply a peaceful resolution to a situation, here is how to do it:

1. Develop a Relationship with the Universe

If you are new to the law of attraction and the inner workings of the Universe, it may be beneficial to start developing a relationship so you can see first hand how the Universe operates.

It is all very well for someone to tell you that “like attracts like” but until you start to see it in operation, it can be difficult to understand.

To start developing your relationship with the Universe, you have to first believe in its power and see the miracles it can create. Perhaps start on a small level first such as asking the Universe for a sign.

2. Set Your Intention

Just because you ask for something, doesn’t mean you are going to receive it exactly as you intended. This is especially true if what you are asking for comes from a place of ego or there is resistance and blocks surrounding what you are asking for.

Before you ask the Universe for what you want, you first have to get clear with your heart and really tune in to what your heart desires.

Once you have set your intention and have become clear on what you want, it makes it a lot easier to attract it into your life.

3. Visualize

With your intention in your heart, close your eyes and begin to visualize the receiving of your intention. Visualize what it may look like, what it feels like and any other details that are necessary.

Allow yourself to get taken away by the feelings you are experiencing. Really feel all the emotions that come with having your request answered. The more feelings you can conjure up, the more powerful your request will be.

Watch: Master Visualization

4. Thank You and Ask

Once you are sitting in that feeling place and your emotions about what you want are bubbling over, it is time to ask the Universe.

Start with “Thank You” as this allows you to ask with the intention that your request is already being received by the Universe.

Example: “Thank you Universe for giving/bringing/opening me to…..”

5. Release and Open

Once you have asked for your wish, you need to release and surrender all control to the Universe. You cannot micromanage the delivery or in’s and out’s of your wish. The “how” is up to the Universe, so surrender all attachments to your wish and remain open minded about how your wish will be delivered.

In fact, the more open minded you can stay, the easier it will be for you to recognize the Universe’s magic at work.

6. Trust in Divine Timing

Another law of the Universe that is important to understand here is Divine Timing. Whatever you have asked for will come your way when the perfect timing presents itself.

You have to trust that once you have sent your wish out into the Universe that it will be received back to you in perfect timing.

After casting your wish, keep trusting the process and holding the emotional feeling strong in your heart. After all, what you want is less about the object or the person and more about the feeling that it creates.

You can find a variety of wish manifestation and law-of-attraction courses online.

In most cases, they teach you a certain set of manifestation techniques or, as some may call them, wish spells. They help you concentrate and direct your energy towards manifesting your desires.

However, there is a great need for certain rules or principles to be addressed and explained before you start practicing the law of attraction, or any other manifestation techniques. The following rules are quite simple and following them could help you get the results you want and bring your wishes into reality…

1. Being in the Now

One of the essential rules to follow when conducting any manifestation technique (here is an example of one very powerful technique called Glass of Water) or making a wish, is to be in the point of here and now. When you are able to stop your inner dialog and concentrate your thoughts on the present moment you gain a much better control of your energy flow. When you are being in the now you can direct your energy towards creating a hologram of your wish through creative visualization. In order for your wish to come true you need to see yourself in the reality where that wish had already came true. The “wish hologram” that you have created through your visualization and placed on the energy field will now be the guide for your mind and body to follow.

Watch: Master Visualization

2. Silence is Golden

There is a good reason why people say that silence is golden. There is no need to brag about your wish to others. By just talking about your wishes and desires you are wasting your energy on talking instead of doing something to make a wish happen. However, do keep in mind that discussing an action plan with others is totally different from gapping about your wish. When you talk about your wish without doing anything about it, you confuse the Universe. Would you prefer the Universe to just observe you talking about your wishes or actually give you energy towards achieving the goals that you have set?

3. Avoid the Middleman

When you are making your wish, concentrate on the wish itself and not on something that will help you bring that wish into reality. If you want a new car, a new house, a new job or a dream vacation then make it your wish. When you are wishing for money to make those things happen, you create a middleman. Divine does work in mysterious ways and there is really no way of telling how exactly the Universe will manifest your dreams. Just make sure that you avoid creating the middleman during your wish manifestation journey.

4. Ecology of Your Wish

It is very important for your wish to be in harmony with Nature. Wishing to harm someone or destroy something with time will have its negative consequences. Your intention is very important, so when you wish something bad to happen to another person, you are bringing it on yourself (or even your kin). You have probably heard about the law of karma. It is also important to realize that in today’s world of informational paradigm your wishes and your thoughts are just as important as your deeds. It is no longer enough to just do good things in order to attract good karma. Your thoughts and worldview have to be ecological as well in order for your wishes to come true.

5. Save Yourself

One saint once said: “Save yourself and thousands around you will be saved.” In other words, your wishes should be directed towards yourself. When your wish is directed towards somebody else and you wish them to do something or become someone they are not, you are just wasting your wish manifestation energy. If you truly want to help someone else, then become an example and stop forcing your own truth upon others. Even if eventually you succeed in making someone else do what you want, you just made that person a parasite who will feed on your truth.

Everyone has their freedom of choice and it is important for each one of us to apply it in life without interference with the freedom of others. In certain cases your kids until they turn 21 can be an exception. However, the most effective way is still being the example on how to live a happy life and sharing the knowledge of how you did it instead of wishing something for them or telling them what they should do.

In your mind and body, you possess the greatest and most sophisticated technology in all the world. When you know how to use it, precisely and accurately, you have the makings of a Super Power.

6. Time is Energy

Some law of attraction experts will tell you that you should set a concrete deadline for your wish to manifest, others will argue that you should make your wish and release it into the energy field. You can just treat time as energy of a certain frequency. Understanding the concept of time is very important to wish manifestation. Intricate wishes may need a certain amount of time to come true while other simple wishes may become a reality in a matter of weeks, days or even hours.

7. Follow the Signs

Many people forget to follow the signs after they make a wish or conduct one of the manifestation techniques based on the law of attraction. You have to be consciously aware of what is happening in your life after you have expressed your wish to the Universe. It is very important to allow and be ready to receive abundance in your life. You need to see and follow the signs that Universe will produce on the road towards your wish manifestation.

8. Wish Elevator

Here is a big secret – there is no elevator to wish manifestation, you have to take the stairs! However, you can learn about ways and powerful techniques to help you effectively manage your wish manifestation energy and realize your full potential. There are people who win big by winning a lottery. However, after a certain period of time, almost all of them report that it was actually more of a curse than a blessing. In order to flawlessly manifest your wish, you have to be realistic. If you wish to achieve long lasting positive results you have to take it step by step.

9. Your True Self

Your mission or purpose in this life has to be taken into account when making a wish. Of course, we live in a quantum reality and everything is possible. However, not all the things will bring you closer to being happy. Your true self, Higher-self or your Spirit holds the information on what will make you happy. In order to experience the manifestation of your dreams in this life, they have to be within the limits of the mission your Higher-self has in store for you. When you are being true to yourself and genuinely passionate about your wish, it will manifest without resistance. You might still encounter certain challenges in your wish manifestation game but in the end, they will all turn into a joyful adventure.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know these 9 principles to wish manifestation, you can get much better results from practicing the law of attraction and other wish manifestation techniques. Please also keep in mind that Nature always pays in advance. Thus, when your wish is manifested, make sure to enjoy it as much as you can. The positive emotions that you receive from winning the wish manifestation game will serve as the energy foundation to reaching the next frequency in your journey of spiritual self-discovery.
