The logic behind your defensive behaviour

The feeling of a block in your energy body is common for those who start training in magnetism.

You may feel an interruption in your energy flow, a contraction inside, which can manifest as muscular tension, either big or small.

These blocks can be present at all times but more often than not, they “awaken” when you perceive a threat. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an actual physical threat to your well-being (e.g., someone physically attacking you). It can be anything that your mind and body perceive as a threat, and often these are fairly normal and straightforward events (e.g., talking to a potential romantic partner).

When these blocks awaken due to a perceived threat, you feel an impulse inside which then manifests as external behavior.

For example: your potential romantic partner gives you a nice compliment and, for some reason, you feel a tightness in your heart center, giving you the impulse to run away. You can control that impulse, but instead of running away, you act aloof and withdrawn.

Instead of being happy about receiving a compliment, you feel the complete opposite and behave negatively.

The root of this is an unconscious perception of the compliment as a threat and the unconscious reaction to it.

Both of these need to be acknowledged and understood. Just by doing this, you’ll understand important elements about yourself and who you really are.

We all think we are conscious beings and our behavior is rational and logical. Once you start doing this work, you will notice how this is not true and how a different logic is at play.

In our next email, we will discuss the work that needs to be done to take actual control of your behavior.

Realize your desires

Here’s an interesting quote from Neville Goddard:

“To realize your desire, an action must start in your imagination, apart from the evidence of the senses, involving movement of self and implying fulfillment of your desire. Whenever it is the action which the outer self takes to appease desire, that desire will be realized.

The movement of every visible object is caused not by things outside the body, but by things within it, which operate from within outward. The journey is in yourself. You travel along the highways of the inner world. Without inner movement, it is impossible to bring forth anything. Inner action is introverted sensation. If you will construct mentally a drama which implies that you have realized your objective, then close your eyes and drop your thoughts inward, centering your imagination all the while in the predetermined action and partake in that action, you will become a selfdetermined being.

Inner action orders all things according to the nature of itself. Try it and see whether a desirable ideal once formulated is possible, for only by this process of experiment can you realize your potentialities.

It is thus that this creative principle is being realized. So the clue to purposive living is to center your imagination in the action and feeling of fulfilled desire with such awareness, such sensitiveness, that you initiate and experience movement upon the inner world.

Ideas only act if they are felt, if they awaken inner movement. Inner movement is conditioned by self-motivation, outer movement by compulsion.”

Mere thought does not create reality

Mere thought does not create reality. I know this goes against what the New Thought philosophers have always said: “Thought creates reality.”

But it’s easy enough to understand what I’m referring to: we all have thousands of thoughts each day in our minds, from the very mundane to the most extreme. Just spend a day noticing and writing down all your thoughts, and you’ll know exactly what I mean: you’ll fill hundreds of pages.

If each one of them turned into reality for every single person out there, the world would be even messier than it is.

So we can confidently say that mere thought does NOT create reality.

However, we know that thought is indeed an important part of manifestation and creating your reality.

Am I contradicting myself?

Not really.

We need to understand thought as the New Thought philosophers did, in a much broader way.

Allow me to explain:

We tend to repeat many of our thoughts or at least use the same thinking patterns. For example, maybe we are constantly thinking of ways to get money or achieve what we want at any particular time.

So the content of our thoughts is changeable but similar. But what is really behind it? For example, in thinking, “I need X amount of money,” or “I need a new car,” you have an energy of scarcity, neediness, and desperation.

The energy behind it is what gives power to the thought.

Therefore, you can think about different ways to get money, but you’ll always feel neediness if the energy behind it is one of neediness. Then, regardless of how much money you get, you’ll find yourself without it quite soon to fulfill the promise of that same energy.

In other words, regardless of how you phrase the thought, if the energy is one of scarcity, that is what you’ll manifest.

So your energy is the power behind thoughts. It’s the fuel that differentiates the thoughts that are manifested into reality and those that are not.

This is much different from the CONTENT of the thoughts. Just like when we do an affirmation without any energy behind it: it’s like we are firing blanks. There’s nothing within it.

That’s why we place so much importance on knowing and becoming aware of energy. Without it, no conscious manifestation can take place.
