In essence, awareness is a number that shows how much of your time you spend outside of the mind... how much of reality can get through to you.
I just had an insight.
Most people can't see anything that they didn't already see. Nothing new can penetrate their awareness... No changes even, nothing... One way mirror. And you are on the mirror side. I can see you making faces at your reflection, picking your nose, etc. What i don't see you is seeing what is on the other side of the mirror. And when I say, hearing works the same way.
Seeing what you have always seen, hearing what you have always heard is not useful.
Most people are on this site because they want to raise their vibration. And raising your vibration means seeing what you haven't seen before, bringing conscious awareness to all areas of life.
Some people have a real difficulty with that.
I have many programs. Maybe too many.
In every program I run into the same difficulty, the same issue: you hear very little of what is being said. You read very little of what you read.
So what do you hear? You hear what you have already heard. And it drowns out what is being said.
I ask you to hear the voices. You come back and tell me you heard two... in a week. Out of the hundreds a day. What happened to the others? You heard them as your own thinking. You didn't hear me saying that every single thing that you hear in your head is the voices and the memes... The memes are voices, but they have a different flavor: they sound like wisdom.
My flagship product is the 67 step coaching.
It has 67 audios. You are asked to listen to them. You are asked to allow them to lead you to look at things you don't normally look at. To do it so you can increase your awareness.
Because your awareness is 100% correlated with your potential for success...
And you have low awareness. Very low.
In the 67-step coaching, the more you allow yourself to see, the more useful it is.
But, of course, you didn't hear what I said... So you have all kinds of excuses why you can't do it, why you are not the right person for the program.
It looks, sometimes, as laziness. But it is always lack of awareness... like in the case of this student:
I looked at a couple of other people's threads and I became terrified. My issue isn't with looking and doing; it's with sharing. The others have a lot to talk about, but I am not sure if I have much to share. Your comment reminds me of another friend who said I was just sitting around waiting to be a grandma. Yuck! I will look harder and do better with sharing and trusting the process.
I needed to put myself in the shoes of this student to suggest a way out of this poverty of seeing...
this is what I wrote back:
it's a matter of practice. and it is also a matter of coming from your strengths.
You wanted to be a movie maker? look as if you were looking with the camera... not kidding.
the difference was, I think, is that the camera had a defined size of view... a frame, and it was easier to deal with that little, than with the whole.
So, how do you do it?
If you have a camera, do it with the camera. Make sure you look through the camera. Change the setting so you have to see through the little hole, instead of looking at the little screen.
Old style cameras that work with film are best...
Start looking around you, and train your eyes to see things that are not visible when you just walk around, doing what you always do.
In the spiritual work, we are mostly interested in behavior, feelings, attitudes, but you cannot get to them, without first developing and training your eyes to see.
You are blind to everything other than what you know is there.
So look... keep on looking.
I expect you to be amazed, horrified (that's me), or amused.
Please report back on what you saw.
This is necessary if you ever want to raise your awareness... which is how you raise your vibration.
PS: if you do this like a homework, it won't do you any good.
This is a spiritual practice, that unless you do it with intention, and getting better at it every day, at least 1% better than the day before, you won't get better.
I am not saying that you can get 1% better every day, but you can do whatever you need to do to get better, can't you?
Here is a surprising number:
if you could get 1% better every day than the day before, you'll get 380 times better by the end of the year.
The average awareness of humanity is 5%. The average awareness of my readers is 5%...
You need to get it up to 80-90% to bring your dream into the realm of possibility...
That is a 16-18 times increase...
Ugh, that sounds difficult.
But like with everything else, consistency, diligence, intentionality in your practice will bring dividends.
You see, you can either be right or you can be rich, you can either be right or you can be happy.
What "right" means is listening to the same old, and allowing nothing new to enter.
When you are right, you are unaware.
Anyone aware more than 20% will know that "maybe" they know. Maybe. Keep looking.
I have too many examples of people who are right and do stupid things. Again and again and again... to their own detriment.
You can climb out of this pit of hell... with the above exercise.
