There is a curious phenomenon, that sounds really counter intuitive. It also sounds counter to the teachings of teachers that teach how to become prosperous, etc.
The phenomenon is as follows:
You have a little bit of success. You tell everyone about it. You write home about it. You celebrate. Then you watch as it dissipates, fizzles out, goes away. Flash in the pan.
I have been observing it for 26 years. The pull of sharing of a success that is a step in the right direction is irresistible. I know it is a death sentence, and yet I still make the same mistake, and it stops the flow, every time, no fail.
In this article I intend to trigger a flow of Source energy, Source clarification why this is happening, so I can understand and stop bringing this on myself, and that I can teach you how to avoid it as well.
By the way, if you ever wondered why I write so many articles, you got your answer just now: I activate the guidance energy this way, instead of just sitting on my bed and waiting for guidance. And just so you know: the Tangerine Spot is active as I am writing this. So I can GET the guidance.
One of my favorite stories from the Bible is the story of the Israelites reaching the Reed Sea 1 on their escape from Egypt.
So there they are, on the shore of this body of water, and they can hear the pharaoh's army getting closer and closer. There is no time to go around the water, they need help. So they pray. And suddenly they hear a voice: Why are you praying? Jump!
So one brave soul, named Nachshon jumps into the water and starts wading towards the deep... The water is up to his neck, and then the water parts. The Israelites rush through onto the other side. The army comes right on their heels... but the waters close again, swallowing the army, men, horses, carriages and all.
The Israelites watch this from safety on the other side.
What is the moral of this story? It is quite simple, but not practiced today: If you want Source to do something for you, start it. Get into it so it's up to your neck. Start swimming. Then the channels of light will open and you'll be able to finish what you started and get to the other side.
This is exactly what I do, as you see, with my writing. I have a question, and I don't have an answer. I start writing about it, and the answers start to flow. Easy as pie. You should try it sometime... 🙂 Open your mouth and watch brilliance flow.
If you carefully observe what just happened, you'll see that a big chunk of the answer to the question came with the story above.
What was the big chunk, you ask? The chunk that answered the question: what activates the flow of light? And the answer was: facing the problem, and jumping right into it. Which is the answer to half of the question that I asked in the beginning. The question was, if I may remind you, why talking about successes seem to stop the flow of light.
You see, when you look at your partial successes, talk about them, brag about them, celebrate them, any longer than what it takes to acknowledge that you may be on the right path, takes you out of the water, so to speak.
It is as if the Israelites, upon arriving to the shores of the big water, turned around and appreciated and celebrated the distance they covered in one night, broke out the champagne and invited some guests to celebrate.
I know it sounds ridiculous, because you know that unless they continue on they will be either dead or dragged back to slavery.
How come you don't know that in your life? Because it hasn't already happened. Because you look at what is happening with myopic eyes. Because you can't see the big picture. I could say, because you are a dork, but then we would be a species of dorks, which we probably are, but we name that human being... lol. I am laughing with you, I am included in this dorkish behavior.
So let's see where the myopic view comes in.
Let us use something outlandish, so it is easier to see. Let's say you have a serious issue with your spouse, they have had enough of you, enough of the marriage, and they consider leaving. So far it's not outlandish, it happens too often to be outlandish.
Here is the outlandish part: You decide to go to the pub and have a drink to feel better. You have a drink, then another and another. Life seems to be getting brighter, you feel better, you are optimistic. It will work out, you decide, and go home.
Now, if you look, did you do anything constructive to resolve the crisis? Did that action even take you closer to the other side of the body of water, and take you away from the pharaoh's army? I think you can see that it took you away from the body of water and closer to the army.
But you had a good time. For an hour or so, right before you got killed, or enslaved... Congratulations.
Now let us see it with a less outlandish solution:
My friend called me last night. He told me he invented for himself to be passionate. Why passionate, I asked...
oops, this article is getting too long. Let me give you this next part in part 2 of this article, later tonight.
