Manifesting Enlightenment

As you know if you’d read any of my previous posts that I like to write about manifesting and attracting. The range of things that I manifest is incredible, and I share them not to brag or impress you, but to impress upon you that anything is possible. If you have had success attracting something you desired into your life, feel free to write me, I always love hearing stories about other peoples journey into conscious creation.

I have been consciously manifesting my reality since 1997 and since then I’ve honed my skills, learned the universal laws that govern our collective reality, am dedicated to showing committed people how to get what they want. If you want it bad enough there is always a way. If there is a will there is a way is a start, and I can show you how to master the rest of the equation.

Tonight I was outside thinking about a few ideas for blog posts and what might be cool to describe the process of manifesting to you the reader. As I looked up I noticed it was a little dark on my street and as I looked up realized that the light standard outside my house was off. The rest of the lights down the block were on so there was definitely power.

When it comes to manifesting things, most people go for money, sex or power, but for a master manifester like myself, I wanted to remind myself that everything truly is connected. Turning on a lamp post across the street seemed like a perfect opportunity to do just that. Maybe I was influenced from watching ‘Micah’ from the T.V. show Hero’s because I looked at the light and told it that I wanted it to be “ON!”

Amazingly it took less than 2 minutes to turn the light on after concentrating on the light. I focused on the outcome, the rush and sensation I would get as I typed to you all, sharing this amazing experience. Remember this is a fifty foot tall street lamp across the street from my house. I do openly admit that at about the one-minute mark, my mind (ego, subconscious) entered into the picture with it’s criticisms and judgements. I did my best to keep them quiet with the statement: “Thanks for sharing”

I had to consciously refocused my thought and direct it towards belief. Here is where having some form of documentation such as a manifestation journal, or anchor from previous successes comes in handy. Don’t leave it up to the mind to determine how good you are, take my word if you haven’t realized it by now, your ego is a poor judge of character.

Instead I filled up my cup of belief by affirming that my goal was possible, plausible, probable. To me this isn’t something supernatural, because of the belief that everything is connected. I focused my attention to the belief that I live in an interesting and interconnected universe in which incredible things tend to happen. I was rewarded with a gut-feeling that silently confirmed my intention would be served.

Next what I did was stare at the dark lamp and visualized it turning on. Next, I imagined the light cascading down to the ground and illuminating the street below. I pictured seeing the spiked haircut of the grass that was currently covered in a blanked of blackness. I saw myself smiling back at the grass in elation when the light was illuminated.

Feeling the emotion is probably one of the most important aspects to manifesting what you desire. If you cannot feel emotion for what you want, ie. gratitude, excitement or some form of happiness, then why would you expect it to show up? Do you make a habit to visit people that are miserable, inconvenienced and ungrateful about you coming over? I didn’t think so.

In this particular case I focused on the feelings of excitement, joy, adventure. How exciting it would be to write to you the reader that this actually worked. I would be joyful that my manifestation skills and level of belief is growing. The whole process from intention to manifestation occurred in under 5 minutes. I visualized what an abundant adventure it is to be able to manifest at will!

The final step in the process is one that will require continual practice. You need to patiently sit back and relax in order to avoid feeling any ‘pressure’ when what you’ve asked for doesn’t show up yet. I know, if you are like me you want things yesterday instead of tomorrow, but feeling anxiety, worrying, and doubting does not help anything show up faster. In fact, these emotional states will only hinder the manifestation process.

What I did to demonstrate faith and patience was turn 180 degrees around and stare at a tree. This way I could give this street lamp a chance to turn on. If I kept staring at the light waiting, I wouldn’t be allowing any opportunity for it to happen, minus of course the split second in-between my blinking. I took my attention of the fact that it wasn’t happening and completely ignored the intention to turn on the light for a moment.

When I broke my thought train lost in the tree I turned back around. Much to my delight the standard was on and the light was brightly illuminating the street. Was I shocked?… No, OK, slightly… only because the time in which manifestations occur is increasing, I’m sure if you have been manifesting for a while you can confirm this. I definitely was I excited to come back and share this story with you all!

And for the record by the time I walked 5 steps back to my porch and looked back, I caught the fading glow of the lamp returning to it’s off position. It didn’t matter to me if the light stayed on or not, and thinking about it from one point of view, this way the light almost said, “Are you happy, good cause I’m done lighting up for you!” Haha!

OK seriously folks… how was I able to do this? Was it another big coincidence that the light turned on in sync with my intention? Maybe this was a blinking light that was on a pattern and I happened to step in right before it blinked? Was it also just a coincidence that the light turned off as I walked back to the house? What do you think occurred in this case that allowed me to create the exact blog post I intended?

As for me, I don’t believe in coincidences, at least not between most types of relationships. Everything happens for a reason and that reason is based on intention. When there is intention behind reason there is a result. In order to change your results then you have to work on your intention and reasoning. These two are the keys to masterfully manifesting your desires and dreams.

Begin by developing an absolute faith that what you have asked for will show up in due-time, albeit perhaps not according to your intended schedule. If you would like to learn the in’s and out’s of manifestation first hand, drop me a line and let me know what you’d like to create in your life. I cannot promise you that you will be able to manifest in 5 minutes, but I can show you how to become a magnificent manifester.

Who Do You Think You Are?

Who do you THINK you are? Really?…

When you take a moment and ask yourself that question, it is your identity that provides the answer. How you answer will depend on who you think you are. Your lifestyle and life choices both depend on who you think you are. Is it time to get to know yourself?

If I was asked this question 3 or 4 years ago the answer would have been dramatically different then it is today. In time I have come to see through the illusions of my understanding of myself and my true nature. Now in order for me to describe to you who I am, I must first begin by telling you a bit about who I am not. 

My full name is Russell Kirby Small. Interestingly enough yet insignificant, had I been born a girl, my father wanted to name me China… Thank goodness I came through as a boy! Whatever name you have isn’t all that important, because whether in whole, or in part, a name does not describe who you are.

I came into this world on this day, July 10th, just over 30 years ago to an African-American father and a Chinese-Canadian Mother. However, I do not consider my age, race, or birthday to be part of who I truly am. 

I was born at 7:00AM on the seventh day (a Sunday back in 1977) of the seventh month, in 1977. One of my favourite numbers is 7 can you guess why? Still, my favourite things do not tell you who I am either.

I am a SAIT graduate in Business Administration Marketing, a Certified Subconscious Restructuring Life Coach, and I’m committed to constantly learning and growing. But yet again, I don’t believe my education is who I am.

I am a fearless fire-walker who has walked barefoot across 1,200 degree burning hot coals. I believe in mind-over-matter and can demonstrate this belief. Still, none of my accomplishments or aspirations will tell you who I truly am.

In love seeing my life coaching clients breakthrough limiting-beliefs. I’m an Entrepreneur who is passionate about developing multiple passive streams of income. But you guessed it, neither my job or my passion can define who I am. 

In fact, I don’t believe I am my thoughts, my mind, or my body.. which I bet that leaves most of you wondering, “who does this guy think that he is?” Well many years ago I would be tempted to say I am just another human being trying to experience spiritual enlightenment, but now I believe this to be backwards.

You are looking at me now as a spiritual being having a human experience. As this spiritual being I would like to briefly share with you 3 characteristics that describe the essence of who I am.

1. I am timeless. I come from a source that has existed long before we came to inhibit this Earth. This presence exists simultaneously inside each one of us, and will exist for long after all of us are gone. I’ve always had this inner feeling that time was a man-made illusion, experienced by the mind played to us from the projector screen of our own perceptions and beliefs. The best example of this belief would be a movie I recently watched starring Rachel Weiss and Hugh Jackman called “The Fountain”. 

2. The second quality about being a spiritual being is the abundance. I came from a creator that is everything, everywhere, all knowing, all consuming, and every flowing. One of the best quotes that put this concept into perspective was said by Dr. Wayne Dyer “An infinity of forests lies dormant within the dreams of one acorn.” We are a part of this abundance and we can physically manifest it into our lives if we first allow it. I used to tend to focus on scarcity and lack, what I didn’t have and what was missing in my life. I now have come to appreciate all the abundance that surrounds us. 

3. The third thing that describes my spiritual nature is that I am a part of ever-lasting change. Change is everywhere and the only constant. For example the cycle of the seasons, the phases of the moon, and the ebb and flow of the tides. I am a part of something that is ever changing. Even the North Pole, the star that for thousands of centuries has pointed North and allowed our explorers to navigate the world will soon be replaced by another star that reflects a more accurate north.

The best identity to develop is always having an attitude about life that is open to anything and attached to nothing. Our emotional tendency to attach judgement based on individual perspective has corrupted our ability to believe we are all one in the same. When you label or judge something we negate it of anything else. Hopefully I’ve given you some food for thought so the next time someone asks you, “who are you”, how will you answer?
