Update on 2/15/2014: I had an interesting conversation with a friend, where we were looking for politicians with this soul correction. And as we were working on finding them, I had an insight: the fundamental issue of this soul correction is DUPLICITY.
Summary: An enlightened being is confident. Confident in their ability to be a match to whatever life throws at them, and therefore they don't fret, don't sit around, they do what it takes to achieve what they set out to achieve.
A confident person can do almost anything. Confidence is not a belief, confidence is a certainty, a KNOWING, and it is a very high consciousness level... it is the capacity to see what isn't there... because that is what it takes to KNOW that you are a match to anything, and if you fail, you'll learn from it... just another way to be a match to life.
We could call the process of becoming confident the Path to Enlightenment...
Enlightenment is a process, that could be called becoming an Expanding Human Being... And the path to confidence... the process to become an Expanding Human Being, is finally ready.
And not surprisingly, this is the same path to a higher vibration, all the way from the puny vibration you have now, to the rarefied height of the 900's, and anything in between.
Confidence is one of the words we throw around without knowing what the heck we are talking about.
In fact, it probably best approached by the symptoms of what's there when we are NOT confident.
According to wikipedia, confidence is this
the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust.
"we had every confidence in the staff"
synonyms: trust, belief, faith, credence, conviction
"I have little confidence in these figures"
antonyms: skepticism, distrust
the state of feeling certain about the truth of something.
"it is not possible to say with confidence how much of the increase in sea levels is due to melting glaciers"
a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.
"she's brimming with confidence"
synonyms: self-assurance, self-confidence, self-possession, assertiveness;
Unlimited Abundance Review... a program by Christie Marie Sheldon
Before i do anything else: I'll do a vibrational reading (review) on Christie...
Her personal vibration: 130. Truth value of her teaching: 3%... meaning: 97% is not true, not accurate, not effective.
Want to find out if your vibration is higher than hers?
I have gone to her webinars, and I have students who have. I have never met or spoken with anyone for whom it worked. It is a bestseller because people hope that they can amass abundance without working on themselves, without working on their skills, their attitudes, or working... period. The requirement for anyone to want this program is greed and hoping.
The whole methodology of Christie Marie Sheldon is to do incantations. Incantations like a witch, which is quite in character, considering her little wicked giggle, even though it is a nervous laugh, much like a tik... she probably has no control over it. It is irritating nevertheless.
Incantations are affirmation, words. The intention is to change the subconscious beliefs. But your subconscious beliefs aren't what direct your actions. Your actions come from your beingness: which is either your default, or something higher and intended by your consciousness.
Your level of consciousness is more indicative of what you'll do, than what is stored in your subconscious.
Not mentioning the fact that no affirmations, not even hypnosis has ever changed someone's actions with any level of certainty, for any length of time. If it have, you would already know.
She says that she uses the energy of the audience, and she is not lying about that. She managed to put an energy sucking attachment on my neck: luckily I caught it early, because I had removed it from other people before. Her attachments seem to go deep and suck the aliveness, the will to live, the Life Force out of you.
My personal experience is that people who flock to Christie Marie Sheldon, are suckers for miracles, have no or low self confidence, and are not really willing to do what it takes to make a buck.
The testimonials are from the exception: people who are already making money, who have value to offer, and just by virtue of putting their attention on the area, start making more money. This is what we call the placebo effect.
