The real meaning of ‘I shall not want’

 The popular phrase ‘ I shall not want’ is taken from the Lord’s prayer. Several years as a Christian, while reciting the Lord’s prayer as a child, I could not grasp the actual deep meaning behind it. Many of us till now, I’m sure still do not get the accurate meaning of  ‘I shall not want’.

This phrase covers a lot of things affecting everyday humans. Many people ‘want’ a lot in life. They want a soul mate, they want money, they want a job , they want a better life. Infact most of us negate the law of not ‘wanting’ for anything. This is a very important law. Regular people are stuck in the cycle of wanting  they forget that everything they ever need is already theirs, all that is left is for the possession of it. The thinking of lack and want occurs on the physical plane dominated by reason (or what most people think it is), this is why most people will ‘want’.

“I shall not want’ means that in order to move forward to become the enlightened being you naturally are, you just need to step away from fear infused and desperate energies, ‘want’ being a part of them. Instead of you wanting something, why don’t you declare that the things you desire wants you. Why not, money wants me, good jobs wants me, my soul mate wants me, a better life wants me. To do this with total confidence means you have to recognize you have innate talents that attract anything you desire.

This is to say that desiring things are not bad. To put it simply, desire means you care about something , while want is a desperate energy towards acquiring something. You have to desire somethings in life, if not you can not have passion or drive. Desire is a fuel to choose what exactly you like to reject that which you don’t desire.

‘I shall not want’ means that everything you need, you have. On an higher plane of consciousness everything is available for you. All that remains is just for you to see in faith. It is a proclamation of acknowledging God, the divinity within yourself and the awesome power your mind cannot even comprehend. When the understanding of  ‘I shall not want’ comes upon your psyche, all fear is banished.

If you think ‘want’ you get want, if you think ‘abundance’ you get abundance.

Your time will come-but you mustn’t give up first

This is inspired by a current situation I find myself in. I am sure others can relate. I see people all around me, they all seem to have it all together. When I compare such images to myself, I feel down and dejected. Why isn’t my life going as smoothly like theirs? I ask myself. But I realize this fact constantly, everyone does not have it together and the grass always appears greener on the other side. Besides, we are not all going on the same journey.
It’s easy for me (or anyone) to judge my inner turmoil in comparison to other people’s outward portrayal of living. Everyone tries to appear normal in this world, from an early age we figure that the proper thing to do was to keep all of our internal loads and baggage,internal. Because of this, everyone plays the role in which they are given. The role they think they fit…

We see the need to like what every other person claims to like or try to cover anything about us that seems out of the ordinary. Even the most confident of us humans truly don’t want to be judged. When we do not fall into place according to the straight line people demand our lives to go, we may feel dejected.

Now, the message that came to me for this post is your time will come, only if you don’t give up. Things may be bad now and not as good as other people’s situation may be, but your time will come.

The black bra

It lay there

Sitting on the bed

left untouched for several days

The weather was cold

And so was it

The owner was somewhere,

 Out in the universe

The black bra had stories to tell

Many tales of complex relationships

Broken days and sullen nights

Sleepless heavy breathes

It was the useless observer-

The third party

To the passing nuisance of what was called life

A creature of random circumstances

Just like she, it’s owner

Heal your self and spirit with these words

The Ho’oponopono practice of forgiveness and reconciliation has been know as a sure way to heal the self and also act as a law of attraction tool.It is a simple process of acceptance and letting go.The act let’s one forgive themselves and therefore transform negative energy into positive.

The Ho’oponopono practice consists of simple words that bear powerful effects when said. With the repetition of these words,things fall into balance.The words are:

I am sorry

Please forgive me

Thank you

I love you

 It is as simple as that.The healing powers of these words when said with emotion are tremendous.


How to make the law of attraction work for you

No this is not a click bait.

It is a common complain that the LOA does not seem to work for a lot of people.

Here’s why: Because you are not using it right.There are missing elements that has been forgotten or not know by the general populace.This elements must be understood/used for the law to take effect.

It’s not that the LOA is hard,it is different.When something is different,you need to throw out old believes to tackle it.

Here’s what you need to know:

Avoid desperate energy when it comes to the LOA.It will not work if you feel stuck or hopeless.Abandon any feelings of victim hood.If you are trying to manifest wealth,don’t let nagging thoughts of how poor you are remain in your mind.

Pick and choose your thoughts.Yeah,we can do that.We feel emotions due to the thoughts we keep in our mind.

Think negative thoughts=attract negative emotions=create negative vibration=negative frequency=negative feedback=negative actions=negative reaction=negative manifestations.The same goes for positive thoughts.

This is the law of attraction formular.

You can write it down.Let it be your guide.

The moment we become used to choosing positive thoughts over the negative ones,we begin to harness the power of the LOA.It is not easy to change the system you are accustomed to,but it is very doable.”Fake it till you make it”,like they say.

You must be able to picture the outcome.

That above is a fact of the LOA.If you can not somehow see yourself in that desired outcome,whatever it is,the law will not work for you.You must be able to visualize yourself defeating that problem, or getting that job, or quitting that addiction no matter how impossible it may seem in real life. By the way “real-life” is just an illusion.

As the law of correspondence says,”As above so below“.We come to realize that our reality is actually a manifestation of the physical plane.Even in Christianity,we are told constantly of functionings in the spirit before it manifests in the physical realm.So,by visualization(accepting it in the spirit),we begin to see the impact in the physical.Visualization also comes in forms of prayer and meditation,as long as there is the belief and it can be pictured in the mindseye.

Picture the best version of yourself in the mindseye.

You must feel that you are worth the outcome you desire.The law only works when you feel that you deserve good. Surprisingly,many of us don’t actually believe that we are worthy of certain things.This happens to me but I select positive thoughts according to one of the major rules,in order to banish that feeling.This also links to victimization of ourselves. You cannot attract and manifest positive outcome when you play blame games with yourself.

Who cares if you feel your current situation is your fault?It is time to move on and use the present.

The last point I am going to give to make the law work for you is:

You must use it for the greater good

Manifesting is impossible if you wish to use the law to hurt or attack someone.It will not work.The law of attraction is not voodoo.It can only be used for the positive growth and manifestation of the self(that is if you are using the true law!)

I guess that is pretty self explanatory .

Peace, blessing and growth.




Small

Small

Little,insignificant

We were made to feel this way

Powerless

If our nature be our fault

For when we always go wrong

Controlled

No reputation

Minute object without jurisdiction

If things truly change

Could it come quicker

Will the tides ever shift?

Our names faded

The images paint blood in my soul

My insignificance remains

Maybe a bit dramatized

But the concept is true

Unrestrained may be my thoughts

To flow from whatever source

When the mind decided to shut up no more

With a unique style

Different

Un proud yet unashamed

Insignificantly great

Small remains only in the mind that lies to itself

Asante sana,my beloved

Bowl of lies

Let me deceive myself,please

For it is much easier this way

Once I enjoy my bowl of lies

Then I will move on again

If the cure to pain is delusion

Aren’t I allowed to have it?

Who am I to act strong?

When I face an impossible truth

They say when your life is falling apart

The end result might be pleasant

But for me,I am too scared to face this

Maybe one day I will look back and laugh

Thinking I was so wrongly afraid

But today,give me my bowl of lies

Since I need it to survive

Then let me have it,please!

Black

Black as coffee

Black as night

Brilliant like an ever star studded sky

It contains all the colours

Mysterious and elegant

The shine of nature

Pigment of the soil

Backbone of our blood

Unique like mother nature

Pure and unblemished

The earth’s glow

Unmutated,strong and bold

The universe is black

The milky way is black

The soul is black

A cure for loneliness

As the world advances,people increasingly fall into a pit of loneliness.Human contact has washed away to meaningless interactions.The social media world has inspired people to present a fake version of themselves. Loneliness happens when the true self has been ignored or hidden in the shadows for too long.The people pleasing masks worn creates a vacuum in our souls that longs to be filled.

The cure for loneliness is ourselves.It begins within.In order to be free from it,learning to love our real selves is necessary.Not the one forcefully presented on Instagram,or the fake one that we show family and friends.It is the hidden self which was long avoided.Being comfortable and at ease with ourselves is the cure for loneliness.Our fears and love which makes us real must be acknowledged in order to be free.It is a journey of self finding.

Meditation,soul searching and spiritual awakening is needed.We must ask-what makes us us?For ourselves we must see the composition of which our souls are formed.If we can be at peace with our real selves,we will not be lonely.We will be filled with light and love.Those that are truly meant for us will remain attracted to that light.

Happiness would become a familiar concept when you know yourself.

What to do when no one supports your dreams

It has happened to many of us.We have this marvellous idea we want to launch,this vision we want to share.But no one seems to be there to urge us on.Not everyone is lucky to have a legendary mother the likes of Ben Carson.The ones who trust,nutures,inspires and believes.Some of us just have to be our own biggest fans.This is not something which is bad,because being our own greatest support is the best thing ever.Or it should be.

However,humans crave validation. Validation,that word which holds both positive and negative connotations.It is rather easy to say that we do not need validation,but much more harder to abide by it.We do need validation.It is a trait innate to humans.The need for approval of accomplishment.But do we have to get it from a particular group of people to be fulfilled?No,we don’t have to.

Though we need validation,we are selective of who we appreciate receiving it from.A positive reinforcement might come from a stranger on the internet or a college who feels your ideas are great.Most times we do not value the praise that comes from people we give less value to.You might as well prefer the approval from your friends and family,but they might not give it.The issue is in being satisfied with what we can get at any given moment.

So what can be done when you feel that no one supports you?Keep on going!Your dreams are most important to you than anyone else.Why? Because a lot of people are also thinking about their own lives.I’m sure you do that as well.I for one do not go about worrying about everyone’s dream and ambition. Sometimes I even come across an awesome idea which I like,but I forget to express my opinion.Such person might never know that I approved of him/her.People show approval more when you have reached a peak of considerable success.

Every great person today had gone through the same process of feeling alone.When no one supports you,do not use that as an excuse to give up.Use that as a fuel to make progress.Your passion is good enough motivation to keep on going.The need to make yourself a better version you can be should be an inspiration.

Your dreams are for you and at all cost you should fight for them. This is possible without the help of anyone.You can draw courage and strength from many people and sources,but you should be your own hero.It makes you a stronger person whose vision is focused.The greatest support you can get is the one you give yourself.

Keep moving forward.
