Many individuals have contacted me either through email or over the phone and asked me to clarify the very process of contemplation and how it differs, or is similar, to the process of affirmation.
Before we begin describing the difference between contemplation and affirmation, we need to realise that we are operating in at least two distinct realms.
- The first realm is the one of creating new neural pathways. With the creation of new neural pathways, new behaviours can be generated.
- The second realm is entry into the world of metaphysics and quantum physics. This is the world of vibration, frequency and harmonics.
It is important to note that many very famous individuals have used this very system or something very similar. Within these ranks, we can find kings, presidents, multimillionaires, entertainers and many of the great people of history. It is far from a new concept, with origins that can be found in pre-Egyptian times. Variations of this methodology can be found within the religious systems of the world’s esoteric communities including the Masons, the Knights Templar and the Illuminati.
These organisations have existed throughout history not because they were a good idea, but simply because of the technology that they were using and the social networks that they established worked. In more recent history we’ve had these concepts presented to us in the book “The Secret”. So, if that’s the case, let’s continue.
There is considerable similarity between the two processes. With an affirmation, what we are doing is holding a repetitive phrase within our conscious awareness. In the exercises that we’ve been running the phrase has been “I’m a money magnet”. If we were to simply repeat this phrase over and over again it would be referred to as either a mantra or an affirmation. The primary difference with contemplation is that we are looking for what the consequences or conclusions are that we come to by holding this thought.
An example of this could be that we start off with the statement “I am a money magnet”. This leads us to ask, what does this mean? Our mind may give us a response of something like ‘this would mean I would have more time to do the things that I enjoy’. By doing this, we have created a link between the sentence “I am money magnet” and the concept of having “more time to enjoy things”. Of course, once this realisation is made we start again, “I am a money magnet”. This time we might come up with the idea literally of how to make more money.
Each time we go through the process of asking the question we create a new neural association. The primary purpose of this is that every time we create new associations it has an effect on what we see in the world of physical reality.
This, in many ways, is quite similar to the way character recognition software operates. The first step for a computer to use character recognition is that it has to have a library of letters to compare with what has been scanned. If it has no letters on the inside it can’t see them on the outside. Human beings are very much the same if they don’t have a pattern on the inside of their head it is very difficult for them to perceive it in physical reality. I suppose simply put if I’ve been trained to see the colour blue, I can see blue. However, if all of a sudden purple is presented to me and I have no pattern on the inside of my head to recognise purple, this colour would simply be invisible to me.
By using the process of contemplation we are growing our ability to see things and take advantage of things that are always around us.
When we enter into the world of quantum physics and esoteric studies we end up doing exactly the same thing. We hold an image of our completed goal in our mind. Please hear the most important thing of all is that it is of the completed goal. As we hold this image it is also imperative that we experience all of the internal feelings of actually having reached this point in time. It is through this process that we actually start to vibrate with emotion. The primary purpose, of course, is because of the rule of harmonics. Things that vibrate at a particular frequency harmonise with things in their environment of the same frequency.
So, in other words, like begets like. If I’m feeling wealthy then I attract wealth into my life. This is the reason that we use the sentence “I’m a money magnet”.
