Live Intentionally and Change Your Life
In recent months two friends crossed over to the light. Kent Boxberger was a teacher and mentor and Nikola Preusser was someone I have known all of my adult life. Kent taught me to trust in self with the knowledge that things will work out. Nikola taught me the importance of living the life I choose.
I attended Kent’s metaphysics classes on and off from 2013 until 2018. He spoke about the Law of Attraction and followed several channelers in the metaphysical world including Esther Hicks, who channels Abraham; Darryl Anka, who channels Bashar; and Lee Carroll, who channels Kryon.
One of the mantras he suggested practicing daily was this:
My Daily Life Path and Career is to FEEL AS GOOD AS I CAN FOR AS LONG AS I CAN expecting that “Things are always working out for me,” no matter what as I “Follow my Highest Excitement, moment to moment, with Love.”
I believe we come into this life for a purpose. It may be to learn unconditional love, patience, how to care for others, or simply to make a difference in the world.
While I did not always agree with Kent’s point of view, I realized the wisdom in many things he said.
Kent believed that we were greater than we believed ourselves to be; we were not just a pile of skin and bones. Instead, we were 97% vibrational energy. We start out in this life as 100 percent unconditional love and then we build belief systems along the way that create resistance (or what some may refer to as negative belief systems) in our lives.
The key is to radiate love and the feeling of love to build a better life. Esther Hicks, who channels Abraham, talks quite a bit about being “in the vortex.” So how do you know if you are in or out of the vortex? Ask yourself how you feel about different things in your life and see where it registers on the scale. If you are out of the vortex on a certain issue, work on changing the feeling.
In life you may have had experiences of 100 percent unconditional love (think of the love you feel with a pet or a baby, a friend or a family member), but it’s not easy to maintain that “love” feeling all of the time. The reason is resistance. Resistance may be perceived as “negative thoughts” such as fear, feelings of lack, low self-worth, etc., all of which get in the way of feeling good. Depending on your belief system, God may exist as a distant entity, as a part of you (the Still Voice Within), or Source Energy (God is in all things). When we have feelings of low self-worth, negative self-thoughts, jealousy and judgement of others or ourselves, we move away from God/Source Energy (unconditional love) and the positive things in life.
At the same time, in order to manifest what you want, you need to be in a positive frame of mind to create the path for it. You have to feel good and experience the feeling of what you want when you are in that positive feeling mode. I gave this concept a try with my most recent vehicle. I had driven 4×4 trucks for many years but was considering the purchase of a car – and more specifically – a sports car, so I took one for a test drive. Did I buy that car? No, but it enabled me to feel what it would be like to have a sports car. It felt great! A year later, I bought a sports car and have it – and love it – to this day.
When you maintain a vibration of love and a vibration of appreciation, good things result. The universe understands feelings and vibrations not words. If you are feeling sorry for yourself, or you are feeling negative about the world around you, or if you waffle back and forth between positive and negative thoughts, it makes it harder for What You Want to come to you. Likewise, if you are happy in the moment, or you decide to be deliberate about being happy and radiate that happiness, you can be more in alignment with your desires.
After all, Happiness is a Choice.
So how do you get into a “love vibration?” First check in with your thoughts. If your thoughts are negative think of something else. Check in with your feelings. If your feelings are negative switch to something else. Once you land on something positive hold that positive thought or feeling in your mind for 17 seconds.
Kent suggests making peace with where you are RIGHT NOW then:
If you are feeling bad, even for five minutes, it means you are thinking thoughts that are not in alignment with your (highest benefit). RELEASE THE RESISTANCE. Relax when you bump into an obstacle. Be in a state of love (Picture something you love and send feeling to it). Don’t look to someone to love you. You need to love you.
Kent believed we create our own reality 100 percent of the time. While I don’t necessarily agree with that statement, I can see the merit in it. For example, if you believe that “things come in threes,” including negative events, then they do (Surprise!).
If you find it is difficult to feel good about things in your life right now, then focus on other things to appreciate instead. Express gratitude for the rain because it helps the plants grow, or thank the stop sign for preventing a car from crossing your path, or thank the bird for singing, or the street lights for helping you see while driving in the dark. Sometimes expressing gratitude for the little things helps steer thoughts in a better direction.
In the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by Deepak Chopra, he describes The Law of Least Effort (going with the flow rather than being resistant). Rather than remaining in an experience of chaos and disorder, make a subtle shift in the way you are handling the situation and ask for a simple outcome. If you struggle against the moment, then you are struggling against the universe.
Another key to a better life is to get out of the thinking mode and into the feeling mode (The Present Moment). The universe responds to what the heart wants versus what you think you want. Be specific about your wants and don’t second guess them. Let the universe figure out how to give you what you want. Here’s why: if you “send out there” without determining the how to or the outcome, you may receive something much better than you could have possibly imagined on your own.
When you are grateful and appreciative, more of the same can come your way. I call it an Attitude of Gratitude. I make a point of checking in with my thoughts and feelings often. By doing so, I find myself complaining a lot less and appreciating what life has to offer a lot more. For a number of years now, I’ve steered clear of negative self-talk; the result is a lot less stress and a much more positive sense of well-being. In fact, I find I no longer care if I have an extra wrinkle or two or gain a couple of pounds from eating too much holiday food! It’s what’s inside that counts, right?
Kent suggested you keep your focus on: Love. Pleasure. Gratitude. Service (to others and to self) in order to keep the physical self in tune. Other steps you can take to get yourself in alignment with what you want include:
- Find ways to feel good.
- Drink more water (1 gallon a day).
- Walk or jog for 15 minutes a day.
- Get outside and breathe fresh air. (Breathe deeply)
- Create New Beliefs.
- Ground yourself.
- Detox a couple of times a year (one way to do so is to drink water only for 12 to 24 hours).
