The bare necessities. Every time I hear that phrase I think of Mowgli, Baloo and The Jungle Book. The song automatically begins playing in my head and I have visions of a very content Baloo teaching Mowgli that life can be easy when you let go of the worries and the strife.
What are your bare necessities?
Have you ever really thought about it? Have you ever consciously decided at what minimum you are willing to live? What about the maximum you’re willing to live?
In every area of your life, you have a thermostat. This is most likely outside of the conscious mind, hidden within the subconscious realm. You may or may not be aware of it, though you certainly feel the manifestations of it in your life.
Money gives an easy example. If your money thermostat is set at $10,000 then at any given time, that is all you will have accessible to you in all the various forms of money. If you fall below that, circumstances will arise that bring you back up to your $10,000 setting. Likewise, if you go over that mark, something will happen to drop you down to that $10,000 setting. Have you really gone for something to increase your prosperity, done really well then BAM! Got knocked back to “square one”? You went for it without raising your financial thermostat in the subconscious mind. There are many ways to raise the financial thermostat. It is ok if you take it a little at a time, though a huge jump is what most of us want to see. We want to go from having our bare necessities to living the financially-free life we dream of within a year or so. The interesting thing about this is that it truly is possible to do this! Most people just don’t believe that it is possible, and therefore the self-sabotage begins. If you’ve experienced this pattern first hand, you know what I mean. I certainly have been there, and am fervently digging for the subconscious programs that need changed to raise my financial thermostat – and so far the results have been amazing! Opportunities of all sorts have shown up. The synchronicity I have seen is very heartening, and affirming.
Gratitude is a key to raising your thermostat, regardless of the area of life you are wanting improved. Moving into the feeling of gratitude for the health you have now, staying there as long as you can will help your health improve.
Moving into the feeling of gratitude for the money you do have flowing into your life will help you stabilize and eventually grow financially.
Moving into the feeling of gratitude for the people in your life whom you love will help you appreciate and attract to you the love you want in your life.
Remember, Energy Flows Where Focus Goes.
That which you resist persists.
Let go of resisting, worries and put your focus elsewhere. Step back from the strife and let it go. No need to resist – let it go. “How?!” You say? Start by putting your focus on the gratitude of whatever is an aspect that you like, are ok with or enjoy that is tied into that which you resist. “Oh, easier said than done!” some may say, and I agree. It may be challenging to just let worries, strife and resistance “float away”, especially if that’s your default setting. It can be done though if you are truly willing to make some shifts in your life.
Example: Do you resist going to your job because it sucks? Do you feel awful going to work? Try this: Move into a feeling of gratitude that you have a job that provides you with money. Enough or no, it still is a job you make money at. Start there. Then move on to who you enjoy seeing at work. No focus on those that are irritating or maddening, move into a feeling of gratitude for those you get along well with, and especially those you enjoy seeing. Having trouble finding those people? Who is it that you would miss if you stopped working there today?
Try this – no matter the area of life, love, health, relationships, learning, any thing you are resistant to – find the area related and fill it with gratitude. Do this as often as possible and watch how your resistance shifts.
17 seconds is all you need…
to start drawing to you more “like” thoughts. 17 seconds of focused thought, most effective when you can hold the emotion of gratitude with that thought is all you need to get started.
Take that and stay in the thought and feeling for 68 seconds. Vibrationally, this activates the manifestation process!
The best way to speed this up is to be in a theta brainwave. Whatever modality you choose, or if you just go for it, you’ll find benefit. You can make lasting changes in your life, in all areas of your life. ThetaHealing® so far has proven to be the fastest and easiest way in my opinion, which is why I have chosen to practice it, and thus share it.
However you choose to handle your bare necessities and raise that thermostat in your life…know that the Universe is supporting you in all your thoughts, feelings and manifestations. Once you have shifted the subconscious mind, released any conflicting programs that hinder or block that which you want….
The Bare Necessities, and More Will Come To You!
