The Power of Focus - How to Move Mountains

Is it time to make changes… to shift your focus? Perhaps you need a larger picture, and the confidence to do what needs to be done no matter what. The process is transformative. Much like the caterpillar spinning a chrysalis to prepare for new life in the form of a butterfly, you are about to return to the memory of innocence, when life was fascinating and everything possible. It is your pure state of spiritual connection and knowing. It is the beginning. Babies find life fascinating. Every color and shape draws delighted smiles and coos – sometimes even screams of delight. As they grow, babies scramble to discover what hides in the wastebasket or on top of the shelf. They climb with abandon, seeking the next fascination. Hands in soap, mud or spit up – it is all the same -- a texture to explore or taste. They listen, touch, taste and smell. It is their process. They are unconfined by convention. Nor are they littered with mental constructs of limitation and fear. The inner need to discover, experiment, and experience is the freedom of the soul and this drive is alive within you as well. Returning to Spiritual freedom is our quest! As we develop, we learn through play. Children know how to play. They jump out of bed and know just what to do. Whether it is to challenge their friend to a game of skipping pebbles across the pond, or build a fort, or climb a tree, they are driven to adventure and their minds are open for what comes next. Children are beautiful, uncluttered, innocent and without knowledge. Yet, excited and willing to learn. They are shameless and guiltless in their urge for discovery. Before a child is programmed with the need for specific results, they approach life as a grand vista of opportunity – an adventure. What happens to dissuade this desire to venture into the unknown? What happens to daunt the spirit of curiosity? How did we forget to ask: What lies over the next hill? How do I get there? When do we lose the desire to enter the unidentified, and become enamored instead with the concept of safety? How did we buy into the idea of building some sort of kingdom to hide in and imagine life as a dangerous foe to battle and resist? So we ask, what is the way to relearn what it is to live expansively in the way of a child and open to the magic of curiosity, optimism and possibility? This is what we seek as we explore practices and techniques to achieve mastery, knowing, and connection. Directing your powerful mind is the key and the most important element in constructing this skill of on-going, never-failing connection. Your mind has the power to move mountains. When Jesus instructed his followers to have faith the size of a mustard seed, he meant to have focused mental control so that when you fix on a goal, you are assured of achieving it. When you set this resolve, the field of energy in which you live (the Quantum Field) has no alternative but to do your bidding. That means when you set your focus on limitation, it follows your bidding unerringly. Thus, whatever you focus on (positive or negative), you will achieve. What is it you truly want? On what are you willing to maintain focus? Jean Walters is a Transformational Coach, Akashic Reader, Best Selling Author, and Speaker.

Blog: Is this enough for me? (Tranformational Story) Dweisi Mfume appeared to be an ordinary child when, at eleven, his step dad, abandoned the family. Then when he was sixteen, his mother died of cancer. That is when his life spun out of control. Mfume quit school and went to work to help support his sisters. He worked as many as three jobs in a single week. He also began started hanging out on street corners drinking with friends. “I ran with the worst people and I became the leader, he recalled in U.S. News and World Report, "I was even locked up a couple of times on suspicion of theft because I happened to be young and black. And before I knew it, I was a teenage parent, not once but five times." Yet Mfume's life took a radica turn on a July night in the late 1960s. He had been drinking with his friends when suddenly he began to feel strange. "People were standing around playing dice and everything else, and something just came over me," he remembered. "I said, 'I can't live like this anymore.' And I walked away." Mfume spent the rest of the night in prayer. That is when his new life began and he proceeded to earn his high school diploma and pursue a college degree. Mfume went on to earn a graduate degree from John Hopkins University. Then he was elected to the Baltimore City Council, and then Congress. As a congressman, Mfume became one of the most well known African American politicians in Washington, DC. His next position was president of the NAACP. Kweisi Mfume.was the name he adopted in the early 1970s in an effort to connect with his African roots. His Aunt had traveled to Ghana and suggested the name. It is a phrase that translates as “conquering son of kings.” Mfume's story is your story and my story. No matter what our beginnings, we have within us a conqueror, not of people, but of ourselves. At some point, we must ask, “Is this enough? Am I fulfilling my destiny? And, like Mfume, we may decide to alter our identity and take a new path in order to do it. The question is: Is this enough? You have the answer.

My Trip to John of God Martin Luther King Jr. said he went to the top of the mountain and saw the glory and was changed. In a similar way I went to the Casa Dom Inacio in Brazil and experienced life as it is supposed to be. It was also transformational. The Casa (house), which is located in Abadiania, Brazil, is home to Joao de Deus (John of God) an internationally renowned spiritual healer. It is Joao and his many tireless volunteers’ purpose to bring healing to the masses and this is accomplished each week on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. It is on those days that thousands of people from all over the world arrive at the Casa. They seek respite from mental, emotional, and physical pain, confusion, addiction, illness and disease (cancer, tumors, headaches, paralysis and so on). My visit was in July 2018. My objective in going to the Casa was to deepen my spiritual connection and experience. The result was a shift in awareness that occurred almost immediately upon entering the serenity of the Casa grounds. It was like entering a cocoon of love where transcendence takes place, not unlike a caterpillar gestating to become a butterfly. Giving in to the process was easy, joyful and heartfelt. I was also taken back as I viewed hundreds of people, children and babies quietly waiting their turn to be in front of the healer. Peace was in the air. There were no harsh words, impatience, or dissension anywhere or in anyone. People moved quietly while dozens, perhaps a hundred, others sat in meditation. The mediums and meditators provided an important service for they established a high vibrational energy current that allowed the entities that incorporate in to John of God to do their healing work. These entities are previously incarned exalted masters, teachers, and healers. (Saint Germain, Dr. Augusto Almeida, Jesus, Saint Francis of Assisi, King Solomon, Dom Inacio, and others. Approximately 60 in number.) Their energy vibration is high and the meditators support Medium Joao’s ability to maintain their incorporation. The energy throughout the Casa and grounds is profoundly peaceful and loving. There are gardens and an overview where you can gaze out over the surrounding countryside. There are benches where dozens of people sit in reverie or meditation. With each day the crowd grew to thousands. Some were clearly afflicted, children with birth defects, and others weak with illness. Because of the high-energy vibration at the Casa, it felt like you were under a protective umbrella or a spell and there was but one purpose – love. I found it easy to give up pressing goals and schedules and relax in peace. What a huge contrast from the rush-rush of the western world. There was a special place to pray called a “prayer triangle” (the three sides of the triangle stood for faith, love, and charity). People lined up to pray there leaving behind written requests for assistance. This special triangle represents a portal to an inner dimension where spiritual help is readily available. The environment of pure unconditional love was stunning, amazing, and even a bit shocking. It was akin to glimpsing the world the way it is supposed to be and the way it would eventually evolve to become. Within the energetic environment, there were profound changes occurring beneath the surface. The folks that showed up with healing and prayer requests from countries around the world took their turn to go before the medium, John of God, and they received interventions. Some were healed immediately and others who were working through deep, layered issues took longer. All healings were accomplished with the willingness of the individual to do his part. That meant to own his part of the problem whether that be a negative attitude, unforgiveness, self-hatred, addiction, or whatever. The entities see deep into the soul of each person and know what must be done. Incorporation can be a few seconds or a few hours. The stream of people in line that go before the entity measures up to 2000-3000 in a day. Medium Joao has no judgment toward anyone and turns no one away. This means sometimes he works into the night. He is also uncompromising in not taking payment for the healings. He knows that all healing comes from God and his part if offering his body as a vehicle for transferring energy to the afflicted. The entity that is incorporated sees past, present, and future of each person. He recognizes the disharmony and its cause and the correction must take place on every level. In other words, the body displays symptoms that result from fear, wrong thinking, anger, past karma, or misunderstanding. For that reason healing must occur on all levels – mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical. The volunteer staff that keeps the operation flowing and smooth suggest you ask yourself, Why do you want to be at the casa? What brings you here? And are you willing to do your work – to let go of hatred, prejudices, jealousy, victimhood, self-pity – all the negative emotions and misunderstandings that have displaced the perfection of the physical body and shown up in illness, disease and paralysis. If you are willing to become an open slate (clear space) for the entities to work, healing occurs. Sometimes it takes more than one visit to reconstruct a deformed or diseased body just as it took a long time to create such a disability. All illness, emotional upset, even spirit possession starts from erroneous thought. People then attempt to heal the physical manifestation without even dealing with its cause. That is why cancer can be healed physically and it returns. Its mental-emotional origin has never been dealt with. As you approach, the entities know who you are energetically, what you have experienced, and what you must do now. Because true healing occurs at deep levels of consciousness, I personally went through a variety of physical symptoms. At times I was quite ill. Yet through the experience I felt myself passing through many doors as I processed the changes occurring in my inner world. It was a bit of a crash course of awareness – the fast track, if you will. I was prepared for these changes. I wanted them. I had been doing research, and spiritual work, readings and even some mediumship for decades. So, I knew that I was being rebuilt from the inside out. I wondered how others who had not had the same exposure managed but I knew the entities work with each person individually for who he is and his level of understanding. That is what unconditional love is all about. My experience was a manifestation of my desire to grow to deepest spiritual connection with God. During the two weeks I spent in Abadiania, I felt my self being reconstructed. This awareness was confirmed with a vision prior to my departure to return home to St. Louis. My vision was of me unzipping and stepping out of my old self and into a new self. I was thrilled, as I knew it meant that I had accomplished my goal. When I returned home, I was a different person. My heart was opened. I was and am continually connected to the deep essence of love I discovered in Abadiania. It is my choice to live in this space and share it. That is what this story is really all about. Love exists. There are exalted people living in that space. The world is transforming and you can too.

Truth Power

If you have ever fallen flat on your face or felt like a failure, you might want to remember this story because it involved a fellow who had the same experience. He was the pride of his wealthy parents who provided every advantage including the best schools, a law degree and even introductions to prominent people. Yet, beyond that, it was up to him to prove his mettle by becoming a capable lawyer. He had a terrible time in the courtroom. Easily overwhelmed, he was unable to stand up to opposition. His shyness and fear brought him to a wretched state of suffering, when finally he realized that there were people far worse off than he. That is when he began to turn himself around for it was then that he realized he could help alleviate the distress of others. It was at this point, when he took his focus off his own miseries, that he began developing a new philosophy called “Truth Power”. Through this philosophy, he was able to lead his native India to independence from the unfair treatments practiced under British law. His name was Mohandas or Mohatma Ghandi. In developing the philosophy of Truth Power, Gandhi incorporated the concepts he learned as a child when his father educated him in the importance of courage, generosity, and unwavering adherence to the principles of morality and truth. At the same time, his mother demonstrated gentleness, modesty, consideration, and the flexible strength that enables one to overcome through yielding. Both parents taught that if you want positive results, you must be positive, and that goodness, demonstrated persistently, triumphs over evil, even though it may seem to take time. Gandhi claimed that Truth Power would overcome opponents by changing them with respectful patient persistence – transforming them, not annihilating them. Repeatedly, he was told it would not work. Again and again, despite overwhelming odds, it did. In India, it led to democratic reforms; unification of political territories, parties; stopped civil war; revived home industries; emancipated the ‘untouchables’ from an unjust caste system; and freed the nation from British rule. What is your truth power? If you were to take your attention off yourself and face the world, what issue would you like to change? Do you have the courage to take a step in that direction?

Steps to take to move ahead in your career!!

Assumption: The reasoning mind is limited as it only draws from what you are aware of intellectually and your experiences. To live a bigger life, you must move beyond the constraints of the reasoning mind to experience the expansive field of pure potentiality or limitless possibilities. It is a choice. If you say, “I don’t see how that can happen,” you are operating from the reasoning mind. In other words, how did Jesus walk on water and Sai Baba manifest jewels from thin air? They operated from a higher reality. They did not limit themselves to what everyone else thought was possible. We can do the same thing. Each day open your mind to the field of pure potentiality and ask what is possible today? Ask that your next step in achieving your intention be revealed. Listen! Listen to the signs, symbols, and soul urgings. Move! Take action as directed – do not get in your own way. Develop tunnel vision to proceed toward your objective. The pauper can become the prince; the homeless person can graduate college; the secretary can eventually own the company. Everything is possible - in Spirit. When others say NO, you say YES, and keep going. If necessary, block out the world so you can live solely in Spirit and Knowing – I decree that this (objective) is done!! Here are some steps to take if you are seeking your next work adventure. You can use this same process for any other intention as well. Steps to move ahead in career Follow these steps to open to your next career adventure: 1) Make a list of all your talents and abilities. Everything you've ever been good at. (Nurturing, organizing, connecting with people, baking a cake, selling an idea, climbing trees, giving orders, cleaning houses, technology, etc.) 2) Set the list aside - that was for your reasoning mind to recognize that you are multi-talented. Now, let go of analysis, figuring things out yourself, and reasoning. In other words, get out of the way. 3) Next. sit quietly and open your mind to Spirit and every thing that goes with it - the field of pure potentiality and limitless possibilities. Just be in space. Be there until you feel stabilized/grounded. By creating mental space for new possibilities to enter, you are allowing Spirit to provide inspiration. Be still and spacious and It will. Do this over and over and your next step will be revealed. 4) Visualize the kind of activity that would be fun to call work. Recognize that this activity is your True expression and it will generate wages/income. Do NOT concern yourself with HOW it will manifest or when, or who, or any other details. Just enter this picture and FEEL the excitement and fun. Give this exercise 5 minutes. You can do this twice a day. 5) Give thanks!! and let go. Get on with your day and do what is in front of you to do. 6) Do this again tomorrow and the next day. Spirit follows what the mind directs. If your are clear in your intention, opportunities will be revealed.

From Limitation to Inspiration

There are many inspirational stories. How people survive challenges and become stronger and better. But there are none more compelling than the story of boxer, Rubin Carter, an innocent man wrongly convicted of two murders. Carter spent 22 years in jail. While there he continually fought to survive a battle against a powerful foe, prejudice. He could not defeat this enemy, as it appeared to be infinitely stronger than he was. And it seemed determined to destroy him but he did not give up. Carter’s survival method was to take control of his mind. Instead of giving in to rage and victim-centered thoughts, he developed his imagination and ability to focus his mind on something higher. As a result he transformed his hatred and anger into love. Carter’s story presents an interesting challenge: What does it take to survive such an ordeal? How does one develop the inner conviction, strength and mental clarity to win such a battle? The answer his story provides is that you do have total control of your mind. Yes, you can lose your property, job, family, freedom and even your life. Yet, you are the only one who has control over your mind and emotions. A power that can destroy your body still cannot destroy your mind. Carter took control. He learned to focus his mind and filter his self-talk. He taught himself how to look past wrongs and stay peaceful in the flurry of others’ hatred. He won his war. And interestingly, he was finally exonerated and released from prison. This makes me wonder if prison wasn’t his spiritual path to transformation? We have other examples of fortitude and determination. In his book, A Search for Meaning, Victor Frankl described his experience as a prisoner in a German Concentration Camp. He stated that his captors could administer physical torture and limit his actions but they could not imprison his mind. In his imagination, Frankl focused on being home with his wife. Surprisingly, Frankl was one of the survivors of the “death” camps. It would seem that he was victorious in a personal battle of self-control. These people present an important point. Our bodies may be limited, but our minds and imaginations can do anything. Through will and discipline, you can train your mind to perform the impossible. You can achieve greatness. Carter and Frankl could not walk out of their respective physical confines so they conceived other possibilities. By looking for greater lessons in their circumstances, they walked out of their mental prisons. Carter turned his animosity into love; Frankl imagined his way to freedom and then assisted others to search for deeper meaning. You have the same capabilities. You can move from the self-created prison of prejudice, anger, or limitation to comprehend and experience greater possibilities. It is a shift, a discipline, and a plan and it results in peace and personal contentment. Jean Walters is a St. Louis based Personal Growth Consultant and Life Coach.

Failure is an Illusion

Failure is an Illusion by Jean Walters There are lots of things you cannot control – the economy, the way others think or behave, the price of eggs, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Kim Jong-Un. It would be easy to become so immersed in the number of items you cannot control that you forget what you can manage, and that would be YOU. In a fear-based culture, there is a societal tendency to dwell on negativity... What if this happens and what if that happens? People ruminate on negative possibilities. You might notice it if you watch the news (or even the day-time soap operas where everything is a tragedy). Unpleasant events dominate and it becomes vogue to talk about problems and it is easy to transfer this victim idea to yourself - poor me. “Wasn’t it terrible what Claude did to Rumania? She deserves to get revenge.” “Life is such a struggle!” “Blah, blah, blah.” Eventually with the preponderance of negativity, you get pulled down and feel lethargic, unmotivated, even depressed. Negativity results in loss of focus, movement, direction and energy BUT it doesn’t have to be that way. We have all experienced moments of loss or failure and it is the measure of a person as to how he responds to these. We can let each experience that turns out differently than we planned or expected to become a terrible tragedy. We can believe that with failure, we are losers. Or, we can deal with each experience (job, relationship, strategy, interaction) as an opportunity to pick ourselves up, learn something new, and take a different approach. As Helen Keller said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” In other words, no one comes out of the shoot knowing everything. For all of us, life is an ongoing experiment. Take note of the people who failed in their missions before they saw any glimmer of success. Bill Gates is a prime example. Even though he is one of the richest people on earth, Gates had his share of failures. An example would be his first business called, Traf-O-Data, which crashed and burned. Undaunted Gates and his partner Paul Allen moved on to form one of the most profitable companies in the history of the world – Microsoft. Former President Harry S Truman also failed in business. He and his partner Eddie Jacobson set up a hat shop in Kansas City. America was in economic decline at the time and the business failed leaving Truman owing $20,000 to creditors. Instead of declaring bankruptcy, he paid back all the money he owed. It took more than 15 years. It set his character. Truman was also defeated in his second term as judge in Jackson County, Missouri. Undaunted, he ran again and was elected Presiding Judge. Truman became known as a man of integrity. No doubt, his response to defeat fed into that reputation. We are all driving cars right now because of the genius of Henry Ford. His global vision was that consumerism was the key to peace. He acted on that idea by creating methods of mass production of inexpensive goods, high wages for workers, and systematically lowering costs. All of which resulted in technical and business innovations, including a franchise system for Ford dealerships. Yet, along the way, he had his failures. His Detroit Automobile Company went out of business and the Edzel car was not a market success. Each of these people did not let loss or failure get in his way. They saw each experience as a stepping-stone to the next one and got stronger, more creative and savvy as they went along. Albert Einstein failed in his college entrance exams; Thomas Edison had numerous (thousands) of unsuccessful experiments before finally perfecting the light bulb and other inventions. In fact, Edison used his failures to construct his successes. In his mind, each “failure” illustrated what did not work so he could discover what did. Abraham Lincoln failed in business twice, was repeatedly defeated for public office and had a nervous breakdown. These are a few of his many challenges. All of these people failed according to the facts. Yet, if you were to focus on their failures, you would never guess their impact on the world, which was far-reaching and profound. They literally changed we the way we live our lives. Gates, Einstein, Edison, Lincoln, Ford, and, indeed all successful people, refused to pay attention to their failures. They marched to the tune of their own drummers and lived their lives accordingly. They denied failure, refusing to let it define or stop them. The thing that holds people back is “what they think they aren’t.” (I’m not smart, inventive, social, graceful, clever, witty, etc.) If you turn this around, you can decide what you are and you thereby convert negative, static energy into forward thrust (movement and power). It can sound like this: “I am determined, persevering, good at math, science, conversation, polo,” etc.) You have to agree to a positive self-image to bring your energy up and tap into your source of inspiration and motivation. Motivation comes from within, not from outside people or sources. It is a force that moves you to action. Your belief about yourself is the starting point. If you believe you can achieve despite drawbacks and obstacles, you can. If you are sure that you cannot make it, you are also right. Your decisions profoundly influence the outcomes in your life. You can base your decisions on past mistakes or on what you want to happen and focus on the steps necessary to bring that outcome into being. Either way, you are in control. What you control is yourself – your vision, determination, and desire. Take command and alter your destiny. Then no matter how many “failures” you experience, you will move forward toward your goal. The edict is, “if you think you can, you can and if you think you can’t, you can’t. Either way you are right.” Benjamin Disraeli stated it this way “The secret of success is constancy of purpose” and Audre Lorde stated, “When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” Psychologist, Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “Failure is an illusion. No one ever fails at anything. Everything you do produces a result.” His idea is that if someone throws you a ball and you drop it, you did not fail. Instead, you say, “throw it again.” Soon you are catching the ball. You make failure illusions real by identifying with them. If you decide, “I will never be able to catch the ball. I am a failure at catching the ball.” Then you are a failure. Fear makes the illusion real. Fear can be eliminated by love. You can love the opportunity to learn how to catch the ball; how to write a letter; how to bake a cake, fix a car, or run a business. You can love the opportunity to be whatever it is that you want to be. Just keep catching the ball. “Fear knocked at the door. Love answered and no one was there.” Ancient wisdom Jean Walters is a St. Louis based Personal Growth Consultant, Life Coach, and Akashic Reader.
