You may have come across the idea of creating a vision board which pictorially represents and encapsulates your dreams. They are reasonably effective tools for delivery of our goals.
When it comes to manifestation, if any of our mind centres is weakened or out of balance, our goals can forever seem tantilisingly out of reach. What’s even worse is that some mind centres can completely nullify the actions of others. So, if you really want to conjure up your heart’s desires, it pays to be mindful about how all our internal mind centres interact with the Physical Plane.
Our base chakra is the energy centre we use to communicate with the Earth Plane. It is what generates what we perceive as serendipities through the Earth mind. It also acts as a check and balance to ensure our actions are safe for us and ecological for the planet. If you find that your manifestations appear and then unmanifest, it is a sign that the energy flow through your root mind could be improved.
Our sacral chakra provides for our needs. In times gone by, it would send out a signal that we are hungry and sense where we might go to hunt. These days it can be used to generate money and clients. If you bank balance needs a boost, energise this centre, be still of mind and allow what you need to pop along. Be open to receive in the most bizarre way and when you least expect.
This is the centre of our intuition which can be expressed better as our ‘inner-tuition’. Ignore the messages from this centre and you will end up pushing water uphill. Follow its guidance and you will go with the flow. From an energetic perspective, you can use it to attract those of a like-mind to you for co-creation opportunities. It works a treat over social media!
It will come as no surprise that it through our heart centre that we attract people and opportunities that we love towards us. If you suffer from lack of external love or self-love, this centre will be weakened. It is an energetic centre that we can now take under conscious control. Applications of the Heart Ray include healing, softening tense situations and finding your soul mate and your soul purpose. See the blog below for more …
What we manifest through our throat is what we hold true. If we utter words like, “Life is tough”, then it will be. When you awaken, try exclaiming, “What a beautiful day to be on Planet Earth”. During the day, be mindful that your words hold power and what we say invokes a spell into the air. We can use this knowledge to talk to the wind and allow it to carry our wishes far and wide.
When it comes to manifestation, our Third Eye plays two roles. It can be used to direct our wishes to the relevant mind centre so it becomes responsible for actual manifestation. Its second role is to notice when our dreams have arrived. Maintaining a quiet mind, with only essential internal dialogue running, pays great dividends here. This allows the Third Eye to receive notifications back from our other mind centres as to when they have done their job.
The crown chakra plays the opposite role from our root. When our mind is open, we can receive guidance and wisdom from the collective mind. This blog is being a typical example. When our crown is open and our root connected, we can then move our consciousness to our heart centre and run operations from there. We then become a conduit from the Above to the Below.
If you are interested in manifesting with all your internal mind centres, take the Heart-full Living course. It’s available with 1-2-1 mentoring or as a self study course. Your investment will also help restore eyesight to people in the developing world. It comes with a bonus visualisation called the Two Mind Transmutation which delivers your heart’s desires every time.
Albert Einstein was renowned for his thought experiments. The whole Theory of Relativity came from him musing whimsically about what it would be like to ride on a beam of light.
Now neuroscientists are not totally sure where our thoughts actually come from, or where our memories really hang out. Cosmologists and physicists are spending billions of dollars trying to find out why 96% of the Universe is basically ‘dark’.
Now it’s just a thought and a whimsy but wouldn’t it be kind of amusing if it was thought itself that formed the basis for all that dark energy, and that memories turned out to be a form of dark matter.
So just imagine for a moment if all the thoughts you have had since you became self-aware, including dreams and unconscious thoughts, were lined up as a ‘thought stream’, plotted against the timeline of your life. Then imagine that your life, and the lives of everything else that is living, is formed of what you experience as you ride down this stream of thought. Note that most of these ‘thoughts’ are just feelings and sensations and not the inner dialogue we think of as thought.
The Mind of God?
Together then, all life forms ride on thought streams that collectively form the fabric of the Universe. Single celled life may only be capable of tuning into thought forms that fuel the essential life processes. Complex animals such as all dolphins, and some humans, have neurological centres that can tune into ‘higher level’ thoughts like compassion, curiosity, creativity and love. All are aspects of course of the thought streams that emanate from the mind that some call God, which is why it it proclaimed God is omnipresent and in all of us. This could give us an agnostic model of God that all could embrace irrespective of creed, dogma and scientific leaning.
In passing, it is worth noting that not all what we think of as life, or conscious, may incarnate in the material plane. Furthermore, what we consider to be inanimate like the seas, the air and rocks and even scaling up to whole planets, moons and stars could also be ‘borne’ on discarnate thought forms.
The Fusion of Thought
In the same way that elementary particles can smash together and coalesce or shatter, thoughts can meet too and merge to form new thoughts. Thoughts also possess a wave-particle dualism. They can merely pass through as ethereal whispers on the wind or coalesce, densify and interact with the physical plane. Ask any alchemist.
Some share their journey together; others bounce off each other and go their separate ways; some annihilate each other in a puff of energy.
The Free Will Paradox
So as our thought streams merge with those of others, they can take off in different directions that give us a multifarious and seemingly random set of life experiences. This may solve the paradox that all is preordained yet we live in an illusion we call reality where it appears we have the free will to change anything.
Perhaps what we perceive as free will is merely our natural reaction to incoming, seemingly random thought streams.
Perhaps also, if you are not totally happy with your life’s direction and pace, you could jump off your current thought stream and start riding another one?
This blog is such an example and is only ‘just a thought’. Please add you thoughts to this meme by way of comment below.
It’s said that when you love the work you do, with people you love to be with, then you will never work as such again.
I am blessed with this kind of life and while out walking my dogs this morning, it ‘came to me’ that I had loads of tips and resources I could share, and with love, that could help others do the same.
#1. How do you enter the Loving Zone?
Listen to this sample chapter from the audiobook version of The Zone, to find the key to living a life you love – with people, and that special person, that you love.
#2. Ditching Your To Do list
Many people struggle under the weight of their To Do lists. This short video explains how, with the use of a To Don’t List, you can create a To Love list that you will just love to do !
#3. Moving to Heart-based Consciousness
It has been known for thousands of years that the heart is a centre of consciousness. Science is just about catching up. I’ve developed a programme called Heart-full Living which helps move the consciousness from the head to the heart, and other centres, as part of an awakening of dormant and nascent parts of our neurology. Watch this short video to find out more.
#3. Intention Marketing
I’ve been turning things up a notch or three the last few months working with someone I simply love working with – the amazing Jenny Littlejohn. Shortly after Jenny took the Heart-full Living mentored course, she came up with the brilliant system of Intention Marketing. Here, rather than marketing your goods and services, what you share with the world is your intention. If you are a heart-based business, like a coach, therapist or healer, I highly recommend you get in touch with Jenny (link below) and I hereby share my intention.
#5. Why Love Never Dies
The love that we hold is stronger than many of us ever imagine. It is permanent and extends over space and up and down the timelines. In this interview with the amazing Dr Jamie Turndoff, discover how love never, never dies.
We humans have an amazing, special and magical ability that we often take for granted. We can think.
From quite an early age, most people gain the ability to talk to themselves, and each other. As a result, from when we wake up in the morning until we fall asleep, our mind starts a-chattering. Many do not give this a second thought from one day to the next.
While the ability to think is an amazing feat for sentient star dust (i.e. Us) to pull off, it has resulted in the thought forms from our lower mind centres being swamped and overlooked. You will know what I mean if you have ever said, “I wish I’d trusted my gut” or “My heart was never in it”.
From an energetic perspective, this ability to think and talk comes about from a level of communication not yet recognised by many, if any, neuroscientists. For starters, not all thoughts emanate from our brain as it is as much a receiver of thought as it is a generator of thought. Our seven main internal chakra centres are also communication portals. It is the one right in the centre of our brain, the pineal gland or Third Eye, that picks up many external thought forms. It can be tuned in through the practice of mindfulness meditation.
The ability to talk involves intercommunication between this sixth chakra point and the fifth chakra point, the throat chakra. Around 1 to 2 million years ago, humankind got “The Word” and this magical ability of self-talk and language was conferred upon us. We are now on the cusp of the next stage in evolution where we become able to take conscious control of our heart chakra, as well as the chakra centres below. The result of this shift has a few prerequisites and many consequences.
What happens when we live heart-fully?
#1 : Loving what you do
Just imagine if each and every day you could wake up and do just what you love to do, with people you love. Think about what is stopping you from doing that right now and imagine if such barriers to doing this could vapourise.
#2 : Loving who you are with
Imagine a world where the people you want to be with turn up, just like magic. Whether it’s the perfect clients or business partners or friends or a soulmate you are looking for, imagine if they just found you.
#3 : Loving where you are going
If we are worrying about tomorrow, we lose focus on today and our efficiency drops. When we entrust our decisions to our heart and gut minds, we will rarely put a foot wrong. It is both a simpler and a safer way to be.
#4 : Loving who you are
All love starts with self-love. This is not love of a narcissistic kind but one where we love ourselves for who we are, what we do and what we can do for others. It is difficult to ask others to love us if we don’t start by truly loving ourselves.
#5 : Loving who you might become
It’s said that the only thing you can take with you is your evolution (and that the only thing you can really leave behind is your art). If the most amazing life is within your grasp, just around the corner, it would be silly not to take that next step – and another and another.
There is a version of you in the future who has achieved all your heart’s desires, and more. The only person in the world who might prevent you from being that person in the future is you right now.
I have been fortunate to live a charmed life. I have been blessed with many gifts but also experienced many frustrations. When I switched to living heart-fully, years of turmoil and inner-struggle disappeared and a new world opened up for me. I want to share the secrets of what I have learned with others.
Two of the gifts I have received were an engineering mindset and the ability to channel. The former lets me build ‘stuff’ and the latter gives me access to information that I do not know. This is called claircogniscence.
Using the principles above, I was nudged into creating a chakra awakening programme that seems to switch people into a new mode of existence and awakens a new level of consciousness.
I’ve called it (or had it called for me), Heart-full Living.
Watch this short video with Hannah Smithson who was the soul who nudged me:
And start your next phase of evolution here …
As we embark on a new orbit of the Sun, it not only pays dividends to make plans for the next year ahead but also to reflect on what unfolded in the year just gone.
That was 2015
For me, 2015 was a year of generation where I produced this little lot :
- Three books
- Loads of meditations
- A bunch of self study courses
- Just for Today – nuggets of daily mindfulness
- A new, dedicated web site for the Zone Show
- A new, dedicated web site for the Living Timefully foundation
- Helping to get the whole world meditating
To find out how I managed to create such output, listen to this podcast.
This is 2016
To hear about what I plan for the 2016 on the back of all of this in what will be a year of consolidation, listen to this podcast.
This week’s guest on the Zone Show is Zen Master, author and musician, Joseph Emet.
Jospeh shares his wisdom, and his meditative songs, on the how and why of mindfulness meditation.
Be prepared to be slightly more chilled out at the end of this podcast than at the start..
Topics we chat about :
- Why we should fill our days with music
- How to sculpt a different outcome for ourselves
- Why we should be mindful as opposed to brainful
- Why mindfulness is conducive to happiness
- The importance of the breath – and a smile
- How meditation helps us heal – and not get ill in the first place
- Meditation for creativity
- Why all it takes is 10 mindful minutes a day (as recommended by Goldie Hawn)
- The collective benefit of getting the whole planet meditating
- How we get the time we invest in meditation back many times over

Now I am no economist or financial expert but my understanding of the current system of money is that, for many, it is based upon the creation and maintenance of a Spiral of Debt.
What this means is that some people who have money, or access to it, make more and more money by lending it to people who don’t have enough of it.
If the people it is lent to use it to create or build more wealth from it and therefore are using it to ease cash flow, then this is a Good Thing. If however it is being used to make ends meet, it’s a Not So Good thing.
Touch wood, I have always been fortunate when it comes to having enough cash. As I mention in my new book, New Magic for a New Era, I was born into a relatively poor family and was one of seven kids to Irish Catholic, but hard working, parents. Since I left home, I have never been short of cash but do not profess to be loaded, just replete with all I ever need.
I am not qualified, or minded, to change the financial systems of the world or to share the secrets of how to win the lottery or to manifest a million dollars. I can however, with some congruence, share the secrets of how to allow all the cash you need, and more, pop along into your life just when you need it.
I’ve distilled the secret of how I do it into a self study course called Abundant Thinking which reveals the secret behind the alchemy of money generation.
My aim and intent for this course is to generate an Abundance Spiral which counteracts the current financial model. When used on an individual basis, it brings both money and all kinds of other benefits to your world. When used collectively, we make ‘change’ of a different kind.
Watch this short video to find out more …
How to Start Thinking Abundantly
The Abundant Thinking course is available for the relatively small investment of just £33 – you can get it here today !!
The number 33 is important as are the terms and conditions. There is no early bird discount nor a money back after 7 days offer (your statutory rights of course apply under the EU Distance Selling Regulations).
These measures are reflective of an old energy system based upon fear. This course will change and enhance your energy level so you can elevate yourself out and away from such devices. Within a week of taking this course, you will get a return on your investment equal to or greater than £33. It may be though not in cash but in wealth and health generation of a more priceless kind.
As I want as many people as possible to benefit from this program and I realise that, for some, even £33 might be a bit too much to spend right now. For this reason, there is an even lower investment you can make to dip your toe in the water of a more magical world.
For just £3.33 (for Kindle) or £9.99 (in print), you can get my new book, New Magic for a New Era which includes a chapter on money. Just reading this chapter will change your energy and begin to create a new flow in your life. Note that there is magic just in the numbers!
What’s more, by merely buying the book, you qualify to get access to my course on the Magic of Meditation (worth £12) for free …
… and don’t take my word for it, some feedback from people who are on an Abundance Spiral
“I seem to have more money in my bank account than I’ve had in a very long time. Synchronicities are showing up like crazy! I feel more grounded and healthy in mind and spirit than ever!”
“One week in after listening to it and clients are turning up out of the blue and sending me money before I even start working for them.”
“Understanding how money and my thoughts are interlinked has changed my world-view at a fundamental level. Thanks Dickens for the Micawber Principle!”
It’s theorised that the so-called “Blue Monday” is the most depressing day of the year. It was originally part of a marketing campaign by Sky Travel to get people to buy a holiday, so has to be taken with a pinch of salt. It even has a dubious formula that factors in the arrival of a credit card bill post the Christmas spend.
Whether it’s science, pseudoscience or just a marketing gimmick, Mondays can tend to be a bit depressing as people slog back into work. So for Blue Monday, and any Monday, here’s seven antidotes to turn that ‘formula’ on it’s head.
Antidote 1: Cut yourself some slack
Put off something you think has to be done today until tomorrow, or next week. You might find a better way to do it or that it didn’t even need to be done at all.
Antidote 2: Perform a random act of kindness
Do something random that takes you no more than a minute but that really makes someone’s day, or week. Watch how random acts of kindness come back doubled, and from another source, when you’re least expecting them.
Antidote 3: Make someone smile
Smile at a stranger or let someone out in traffic. Or send send someone something online to make them laugh.
Antidote 4: Forgive someone
Let the anger go concerning someone who crossed you. The older the grudge, the better it is to let go of. You can even forgive yourself for something you regretted doing too.
Antidote 5: Give yourself a treat
Spoil yourself and buy something to cheer yourself up. Or just get away from your desk and go for a walk at lunchtime
Antidote 6: Get back in touch with an old friend
Re-make that connection with someone you’ve been meaning to call for ages. You might even inspire them to do the same to someone else. What goes around comes around.
Antidote 7: Give yourself some of Me Time
Listen to my Be Calm meditation for just 10 minutes and let the blues fall away
When I first came across the idea of channelling, like most people I thought it was to do with connecting with the recently departed. Accordingly, when someone told me that I must have channelled my first book, I took it with a pinch of salt.
Just a few years later, I not only channel daily but I find myself teaching other authors how and why to do it.
Channelling is not a special gift, we all can do it but for many reasons it has been suppressed and sometimes is treated with derision in our society. Fortunately, the word has entered popular culture, with many pop and film stars saying that they channelled their performances.
Virtually all the literary greats will testify that they did not know where their Muse exactly came from but allude to it being external to them.
We also have this gift innately but somehow lose it. For example, seeing a child immersed in a drawing reminds me of the famous Picasso quote …
“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
By learning to channel, we can get back to this child-like state of awe and wonder, but with all the experience and wisdom we’ve amassed over our life times.
Passive vs Active Channelling
I found out there are two types of channelling. Passive channelling is where people let themselves be taken over. When this happens, sometimes the literary output tends to be a bit repetitive, and quite often frankly a bit dull.
When you actively channel, all that happens is that your conscious mind gets out of the loop and you silence your inner critic. You don’t lose control from directing the flow, shape or semantics of the work. You just get ‘in the zone’.
What’s more, you come out with stuff that you amaze yourself with, both from the perspective of quality and the level and detail of information that you didn’t know you knew. This applies equally well to musicians and artists as it does to writers. I’ve lost count of the time when writing where I’ve got access to information that I could not have possibly known which latterly I’ve discovered was true.
So what are you channelling?
Again the common misconception is that we channel recently departed spirits and indeed some people do. More commonly people channel their guides and some say they channel Ascended Masters, angels and archangels. I’ve worked with authors who channel elementals like fairies and others that channel the Sun, Earth, Moon and stars. Again, whether this is all true or not is down to one’s personal belief. As it happens, my favourite theory is that we channel our future selves who of course we strongly morphically resonate with.
Now I don’t doubt this is what people are experiencing but I feel this is likely to be more personal intepretation than fact. What is more likely to be happening is that we are connecting with levels of consciousness that we struggle to explain in our language and three dimensional reality so they end up with names that sound a bit far out. Also, sometimes when people lay claim to channelling x, y or z, all too often, ego sneaks in to play and common sense goes out of the window. Two elements that are not overly healthy in the creative writing process.
Note that some people claim that, “It must be true as they channelled it”.
I prefer to say, “I channelled this so please take it with a pinch of salt but I hope it either proves useful or entertaining.”
I am agnostic about who is channelling what exactly and prefer to focus on the output. What seems to work a treat in this regard is not channelling randonly but giving whatever source is feeding you with information to a structure. In my ecourses and workshops, I use Mind Maps. They have the added bonus of bypassing that inner critic by busying the left hemisphere so the right can be holistic.
It’s worth noting that you are also not limited to channelling the words (or images or sounds). You can also ‘channel’ or conjure up the perfect publisher, sales and marketing contacts, speaking engagements and your readership.
So how do you go about it?
Regular meditative practice is the key. This doesn’t mean sitting cross legged on the floor for an hour chanting “Om”. A good walk so long as you primarily look up is good enough. There are also some great Meditation Machines you can buy nowadays.
Undertaking a yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi or Qi Gong class is also a great way to immerse yourself in the state that is ideal for channelling.
Nowadays, in a busy world, a good entry point to channelling is learning How to Quieten Your Mind
