and changing how you look at life, or how you might create a DIFFERENT life, best served by changing how you "see yourself"
which is done most effectively by changing what you look at
the mirror is there all along; what you focus on changes your world because what you focus on reflects back not only the image but the "attitude"
and change is often ABOUT attitude
most people assume "being psychic" is something you learn to do when, in fact, it is something you DO when you stop trying to "learn it" . . . the change is not in skill "development"; it comes about through "seeing yourself" in a different way
I now see myself as someone who is psychic . . . I change my vision of myself first -- (think: "YES, I can do this !!") and that vision of successfully being in charge allows me to pull in the images, since I now have a pre-vision of success in "allowing this" to happen
as you pull them in, fuzzy and disjointed at first, your confidence "I can DO this !!" mindset moves closer and closer to a full "alignment" between "clear seeing" and you as one who "sees clearly"
it is not so much you "develop" your psychic abilities as you stop seeing "being psychic" as something you do but (instead) something you "allow"
astral projection is not something you "project" like shooting an etheric missile out of your head out into the 8th Dimension; it is a recogntion that this 8th Dimension of Motion exists as a plane on which to travel and you "allow yourself" to
but to go there you must focus on the world of 8 Levels, or whatever other stop along the highway you feel "drawn to"
and just create the space within yourself to "match up" with the "astral jetstream"
I have used the analogy (much to the bewilderment of so many) that astral projection and sexual arousal are very much related: when you are in the moment and relaxed, an erection or vaginal wetness appears naturally
but if you are stressed or not really "there", no amount of thinking or "working" will make the erection or lubrication come
it comes naturally . . . or not at all
final piece for this morning; drawing is not about technique nearly as much as it is about "seeing"; you get better at drawing by changing how you "see" the thing you wish to draw
it is your eyeballs that change long before pencil meets paper
you change how you "see" (first) and then you create . . . painter, poet, candlestick maker, clairvoyant
psychic ability is best developed by getting out of your way; what (for years) I have called "de-cluttering"
take the marble and chip off all the pieces that aren't a horse and, soon enough, a beautiful sculpture of a horse
sitting there, trapped, just waiting to be
stands before you; the horse is also a metaphor here for psychic development
chip off all the pieces that aren't psychic and RELEASE what is trapped within
it isn't working towards, it is moving the pieces that "don't fit" out of the way
