Why Becoming Your True Self Is The Secret To Getting What You Want

I’d like to share with you the value of a personal development program called “Manifestation Miracle.”

I really believe in personal development. I believe that learning and studying and improving one’s self in all areas of life is one of the best uses of time we have available because of the extraordinary rewards that come along with it. And I’d like for you and I have to have those rewards.

Imagine that you’re on your deathbed at the end of your long life quite a few years from now… are you happy with your life? Or are you not? Are you satisfied with the way you’ve lived your life? Or do you wish you could have done things differently?

While we all would surely change a thing or two knowing what we now know, we can still be satisfied and proud of the way we lived our life, even if we would change some things.

People who’ve done research in the field of “deathbed psychology” have found that the most common lamentation of people who are on their deathbeds is that they weren’t all the way true to themselves. They compromised themselves too many times for other’s approval or because of fear of following their heart. They played it safe and they regret it.

I’d like for you and I to be proud of our lives when we look back on them from our deathbed.

I’d like for us to be standing there on judgment day with God looking at the reel of our life and just smiling and standing tall, being satisfied by what we’ve done and who we’ve become… How great would that be?

I believe we can achieve this through faith, and righteousness, and persistence.

And I believe there’s a key to all of this that, if we don’t have it, leads to ultimate failure, and that if we do have it, guarantees success in this life, and in the life to come…

It’s being your authentic self. Being “who God made you to be.” Being your true self. Being your Self.

Being your authentic self is the highest vibrational state in the universe! What that means is that being your authentic self is the best feeling in the universe, and when you’re in that kind of state, you’re on a different playing field than most other people.

You’ll be living the life of your dreams.

Now let’s make this actionable.

Becoming Your Authentic Self Exercises

The first step in making your dreams a reality, and ensuring you’re happy and satisfied when you’re on your deathbed is becoming your authentic self. And to become your authentic self, you have to know what it’s like.

So list out the qualities of your authentic self. What is your authentic self life?

The purpose of this list is to make you aware of what you think your authentic self is right now so you can start focusing on those qualities and developing them through practice.

Another purpose of the list is so you can start noticing when you are being like your authentic self so you can start building up a database of reference experiences, or “evidence” that you really are like your authentic self or are your authentic self.

Here’s how it would look:

What is my authentic self life?

  • present
  • loving
  • powerful
  • festive
  • playful
  • celebratory

Whatever answers you come up with, think about updating it every once in a while. Don’t shoot for perfection, shoot for awareness.

Making Your Life Magical Exercise

Why is this exercise so valuable?

  • it helps you turn your life into something your proud of and happy about
  • it helps you tune into the life of your dreams
  • it helps you find out more of what your authentic self is like
  • it helps you get on the frequency of your ideal life
  • it connects you with more of your joy

First, list out all of your favorite songs.

Then, pick out your favorite of the bunch and listen to it. Really listen to it and get into it. Give it your full attention.

Imagine what your life would be like if it were like that song… and then list out what it would be like on paper.

Then, imagine that you were on your deathbed after your life long quite a few years from now, and you had lived your life like that song… how would you feel? What would that be like? How would that feel?

Appreciate and treasure those moments. You’ve now created the mental equivalent of creation. Now all you have to do is become the kind of person who would do those things (your authentic self!) and you will literally “tune into” those actions.

Here’s how it would look:

Favorite songs:

  • it’s a great day to be alive (forgot artist)
  • simple man by lynyrd skynyrd

How my life would be if it were like Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd:

  • I’d feel on top of the world… like I’ve conquered the world and yet I’ve got to give something great back to people, to the world to “settle the score” with my gifts
  • I’d be grateful, and gratified because of what I’ve done and who I’ve become and the contribution I’ve made

The actual list I made was much longer, but for brevity’s sake I just listed the above. Make sure to go “full out” when you do these exercises.

And so now you’ve got a target to hit. Now you know who you need to become to be happy and satisfied with your life when you find yourself on your deathbed, and you know what you want your life to be like.

You are ahead of most people these days if you’ve done just those 2 simple exercises… and your journey has just begun.

Live as if you’ve already lost everything you love

This makes you free, truly liberated, full of compassion, and completely present in the moment.

This insight has come from a new cool thing shown to me: inductive Bible study.

What inductive Bible study is:

  1. Pick out a verse, passage, or concept in the Bible
  2. Determine what it means
  3. Determine what it means to your life now

Here are a couple of examples to show you how it works actually:

Mark 8:5-7 – they said they had 7 loaves, and Jesus took the loaves, and after giving thanks for them, he had them distributed to 4000 people, and all ate and we’re filled.

What does this mean?

What I got from it was that Jesus can do some amazing things with God’s help. That we can do some amazing things too if we walk with him.

That gratitude precedes great deeds.

God can take a little and make it a lot. And God will always satisfy His people, succor them, and bless them with miracles.

What does this mean for my life personally?

I must be more consistently grateful because of how powerful it is.

I must give thanks before I do anything if consequence.

God will provide for me, to satisfaction, with whatever is present in my life- I do not need anything else, I have everything I could possibly need to be satisfied and content.

And just because something looks a certain way doesn’t mean that’s the way it is, and especially not how it’s going to stay.

Give it a try when you get a chance.

If you want to deepen your relationship with God, try out this process for maximum impact and ease:

  1. Set a timer for 15 or 30 minutes
  2. Read a chapter of the Bible and underline any important points, concepts, verses, etc
  3. After reading the chapter, go back through and write out the verses with space to answer the 2 questions of inductive Bible study: 1) what does this mean? 2) what does this mean for my life?
  4. Set a timer for 3 minutes to fill in the 2 questions, 3 minutes for each verse

If you follow this method, you can gain some profound insights into what the Bible’s message means, what it means to you, as well as gaining some valuable self knowledge.

Get Deep, Transcendent Wisdom From The Bible

Hey there,

I just want to share with you something that I think is pretty cool: studying the Bible and reflecting upon it to gain deeper wisdom of this life and of the life to come.

My process for this is: 1) read a chapter of the Bible (or to satisfaction), 2) underline and take notes of things that I think are important to my understanding of the Bible’s message, and 3) go back after my reading and reflect upon what I underlined and wrote by doing some freewriting. (As an aside, freewriting is one of the greatest personal growth tools (and spiritual growth, any kind of growth) that I’ve ever discovered. It allows you to reveal to yourself some of your deeper feelings and thoughts and beliefs that you may not even have known you had or may have been hiding from yourself.)

The purpose of this is to gain a deeper understanding of the Bible’s message and to closer resemble Jesus, to model him more, and follow his teaching’s. I believe there is something otherworldly deep (in a good way) about the Bible, so I want to find it and possibly share it if it’s of any value!

I am starting this series with Mark… here goes! 😀 90 minutes

Christianity: The Essential Teaching Of Unity

Opened magic book with magic light

the book of christianity the bible the word of god the light of mankindWhat is the essence of Christianity?

The essence of Christianity is that we are all apart of Christ. And that when we act upon any human or any living being we act upon a piece of God Himself. So an effort to edify and bless all life is the goal of Christians.

God’s law is written in your heart. Let your heart be your guide. Spiritual discernment is one of the spiritual gifts we can lay hold of. We know naturally what is right and what is wrong. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

The origin of the word Christianity.

A breakdown of the word Christianity will shed some light on what it really is. The word breaks down into something like “Christ-like-state.” Christ is self explanatory. The suffix ian means related to, like, belonging to, or having the same properties of. And the suffix ity means state or condition.  So “Christ-like-state” is what Christianity really is.

Who or what is Christ?

Christ is the image of God in human form. That means you, I, your brother, sister, neighbor, cousin, uncle, everyone is apart of Christ. The Bible can speak for me here. I will then explain a little more about it.

In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:4

That is not the way you learned Christ! For surely you have heard about him and were taught in him, as truth is in Jesus. You were taught to put away your former way of life, your old self, corrupt and deluded by its lusts, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds. And to clothe yourselves with the new self, created according to the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. ~ Ephesians 4:20-24

You are created in the image of God. It says so in Genesis 1:26. Even your neighbors are created in the image of God. Even your enemies! That is hard to accept for all but the humble.

We are all one with Christ.

There are many verses in the Bible that explain how we are one with Christ and what that means. One of my favorite verses is Jesus’s prayer for us, the believers.

My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. ~ John 17:20-23

Jesus prayed that we would be one as he is one with God. He isn’t saying he is God, but that he is one with God and that we are one with God as he is.

The apostle Paul made a great metaphor of us making up the body of Christ so when asked “who or what is Christ” we can say “all of us are Christ.”

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. ~ 1 Corinthians 12:27

so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. ~ Romans 2:5

What being one with Christ means.

The final judgment parable explains perfectly how we are one with Christ, one with God. I will post part of the passage here so you get the essence of it and then explain it further.

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:31-40

God doesn’t want anyone left behind. This virtue binds us together. The ones that neglect their neighbors will suffer for as long as they keep that up.

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. ~ Matthew 7:12

Some people have missed the boat here on what being a Christian means. They judge others and condemn them and scold them for not believing as they do. It would appear a good thing that those they scold don’t believe like they do or else we would all be really hateful to each other!

How to get into a Christ-like-state.

The judgmental people I was talking about above are a perfect example of how to get into a Christ-like-state. Do exactly the opposite! Learn to forgive others and be merciful. Love others as you would love God. See His image in them. Really, make a focused effort to see God’s image in people and remember to see the image of God in yourself. Accept people as they are and trust in God that He will work them out. Don’t fret over their eternal soul! God has them taken care of. You are not responsible for their soul, nor are they responsible for yours.

Another important way to get into a Christ-like-state is to study His word as often as you can. Surround yourself with God and Christ by studying His word.

Being good to other people in the best way to get into a Christ-like-state. Praying, seeking God, and practicing charity are two of the most important things on your spiritual journey. When you bless others you are practicing one of the most Christian things you could do. Jesus Christ blessed the whole world by fulfilling His duty to God. And when you bless people in your own special way you are following in his footsteps.

Conclusion.

Christianity is sometimes misunderstood but all things will come to light. Some people view it as a “religion” but Christianity is more of a condition you are in. It is a way of life, a way of interacting with the world, and a feeling.

We are all the image of God in human form just like the Bible says. That is everyone’s honor and responsibility. That we are all extraordinary and magical is what should be shared with the world. It can lift people out of the depths! It certainly did for me and many other people throughout history.

That we are all one with Christ means that when we meet God on judgment day He will ask us about how we treated each other because that was how we treated Him in a sense. It is a most sobering reminder that we need to be good to people and to ourselves!

To get into a Christ-like-state we must intend good for all people and all life, study God’s word, and follow in Jesus’s footsteps trusting in God’s guidance.

I hope you see that the essence of Christianity is quite simple and not nearly as complicated as some would have you think. We are all made in the image of God and we interact each day with His image in human form.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:3-4
