In the midst of grappling with the intricate dance between personal ideologies and collective progress, a pivotal realization comes to light. The article delves into the introspective journey evolving around ideological activism. It is important to look at the significance of how we advocate for change, not just what we advocate for. The narrative navigates the treacherous waters of ideological resistance, highlighting the transformative power of compassion and love over adversarial approaches. As spiritual insights and Indigenous wisdom converge, a central message emerges: unity in diversity and open dialogue hold the key to sustainable transformation.
Shamanic journeys with plant medicine involve inducing the power of psychotropic plants to change our perception of reality and open us up to new perspectives. These medicines, originating mainly from the Southern American Continent, carry a unique kind of medicine or power that helps individuals transcend their ego-centered sense of reality. By ingesting plant medicine, one can access a non-ordinary reality governed by different laws, not merely hallucinatory experiences. In shamanic ceremonies, the shaman facilitates the sacred space where these worlds merge, with the plant medicine acting as the ally for the journey. The shaman’s role is to guide individuals back to their bodies and assist in the integration process, particularly for inexperienced travelers. Working with plant allies in shamanic journeys allows us to learn from the spiritual essence of the plants and their common attributes, as seen in Carlos Castañeda’s experiences with different plant medicines. Seeking healing is the underlying purpose of engaging with plant medicines, aligning the spheres of spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental health to restore balance and wholeness. The decision to embark on this healing path, whether with or without plant medicine, is a matter of personal preference and is often guided by intuition.
There is a personal development boom happening, and many entrepreneurs are capitalising on it by selling programs and courses that promise to help people achieve their goals. However, not all of these entrepreneurs are truly dedicated to helping others. Some are more focused on making money, and may not be as concerned with the results they claim to deliver. This can be frustrating for people who are seeking help and guidance, and may not know how to differentiate between honest and dishonest educators.
When we look at the Title for this article, life is not about being high or low, this statement is pretty much the antithesis of what I described our ego experience to be. Imagine a rollercoaster ride that is so often used in symbols speaking of life.

In this manifesto, we explore various aspects of conscious creation, manifestation, and living a meaningful life. From the exploration of time and space to the power of surrender and gratitude, these excerpts touch upon key elements that shape our experiences and shape the path toward our dreams. We delve into topics such as the role of doubt, the interplay between ego and presence, and the importance of aligning with our soul’s purpose. We begin by contemplating the nature of time and space, acknowledging the limitations of our rational mind to comprehend the vastness of existence. As we navigate the journey of manifestation, we encounter the double-edged sword of doubt, recognizing its potential to hinder or amplify our energy. The concept of surrender emerges as a crucial art, emphasizing the need to let go and trust in the higher intelligence of the universe.
We explored various aspects of conscious creation and manifestation. We delved into the importance of aligning our consciousness with our desires, recognizing the power of the present moment. In conclusion, the path of conscious creation involves a harmonious blend of focused intention, surrender, trust, and gratitude. By understanding and embracing these key aspects, we can navigate the journey of manifesting our dreams with greater clarity, fulfillment, and alignment with the higher forces at play.
Gratitude serves as the portal on our path toward our dreams. It is a doorway we must walk through, for complaining and resisting the present moment only leads us astray. Developing gratitude can be challenging, especially for things we overlook in their importance. However, it is a powerful teacher that shifts our focus and helps us appreciate the present. Gratitude teaches us to slow down and recognize the value of even the smallest details. Without gratitude, the pursuit of happiness becomes endless, even if our dreams come true. But through gratitude, our lives are filled with joy, appreciation, and love for the present, regardless of the outcomes. Living a life in gratitude surpasses disappointment and complaint, creating an unimaginable quality of existence.
The art of focused surrender encapsulates living a meaningful life. While we focus our energy on manifesting our dreams, it is equally vital to surrender to the universe. Our limited mental capacity and the complexities of life highlight the importance of surrendering to the higher intelligence at work. Focused surrender involves directing our attention, imagination, and feelings toward our goals while trusting the guiding intelligence to bring them into physical form. Surrendering requires letting go of expectations and disengaging from outcomes, trusting that everything unfolds as it should. It is an advanced practice that paradoxically combines manifestation techniques with detachment from results. Ultimately, it boils down to trust in the guidance of the Great Spirit, recognizing challenges and resistances as stepping stones, and knowing we are always in the right place at the right time.
Doubt, represented by the duality inherent in its nature, can either hinder or amplify our manifestation efforts. Acknowledging doubt and accepting it as a sign of growth when venturing into the unknown is crucial. Rather than trying to eliminate doubt, we can work with it by shifting our focus and controlling our thoughts and emotions. Gratitude for the present and envisioning our dreams as already manifested raise our consciousness and vibrational frequency. Interrupting patterns of lack and redirecting attention to what is already present and the positive aspects of our experiences accelerates the manifestation process. Choosing alignment with our dreams through thoughts, words, and actions empowers us. When doubt arises, pause and connect with the present moment, releasing negative narratives and embracing underlying emotions. Embracing doubt as a catalyst for progress and maintaining a high vibration propels us toward manifesting our visions.
The question of whether our vision or dream feels natural to us is crucial. Wayne Dyer emphasized the importance of assessing our alignment with our desires. If something doesn’t feel natural to us, it indicates a misalignment with our true selves and the limitations we perceive. While it is true that everything is possible to manifest, the ease and naturalness we feel towards a creation determine its feasibility. Understanding our own limitations and embracing what truly resonates with us is key to conscious creation.
Understanding the frequency or level of consciousness within us is essential. The technique of Japa, as introduced by Wayne Dyer in his Meditation CD, involves the rise of Kundalini Energy through the Chakras. However, each Chakra can act as either an amplifier or a bottleneck for this energy, impacting our ability to manifest. Inner work is required to release past trauma, integrate disassociations, and establish self-love to unblock the energy channels. Manifesting from an ego-driven perspective often lacks benevolence and may not truly benefit others. It is important to align our energy field and level of consciousness, recognizing that manifestations may take time to materialize. Our external experiences and challenges serve as teachers, helping us release ego-identification and let our light shine. Keep practicing manifestation, even if initially driven by self-centered desires, as we are subtly co-creating our experiences and realizing that life happens for us.
The concept of time and its relativity can be mind-bending, as our rational minds struggle to grasp it. However, the teachings of great masters emphasize that the only moment that exists is the present. Events in this physical reality are not confined to a linear timeline but rather exist as an infinite stack of present moments. In relation to shamanic journeys, entering non-ordinary reality allows for “time-traveling” to points in time where healing and integration are needed. Understanding that everything is happening in the present, we can use the element of time to our advantage when creating and manifesting our visions. By journeying to the end result and understanding the causal chain of events, we gain guidance and a roadmap to follow. Despite the vision of our future selves not being fully manifested, every event in our lives serves as stepping stones to become the being capable of holding the frequency required to manifest our vision.
Our alignment and soul purpose in this lifetime requires trust in the intelligence guiding the universe, allowing it to manifest through surrender and without rigid expectations. Dr. Wayne Dyer’s quote, “Don’t die with your music still in you,” highlights the importance of discovering and embracing our purpose. Similar to love or grace, purpose happens to us, and we can choose to say yes and commit to it, even when our goals and aspirations differ from it.
Conscious creation stems from recognizing our oneness with the Universe and the foundation of creation in the Consciousness from which all forms arise. Begging the Universe or God to fulfill our wishes through affirmations and visualizations is unnecessary. Our desires may have been predestined by the Creator or our soul before our incarnation. Instead of treating manifestation as an order to wear down the Universe, true conscious creation comes from letting go and transcending hindrances to allow our essence to flow. Embracing our role as channels for this “magic” aligns us with the manifestation process.
Imagination is believed to be our most powerful tool in consciously creating the life we desire. Personally, I was drawn to shamanic journeys and the teachings of my mentor, realizing the significance of visualization. If we can’t imagine or see our desires happening, the chances of them becoming reality diminish. By immersing ourselves in the vision and feeling the emotions of its fulfillment, we can bring our dreams closer to reality. It’s helpful to visualize a future where our wishes are already fulfilled, eliminating doubts and realizing that it’s just a matter of time. However, we must use this method carefully and only when doubts arise, avoiding the trap of unattainable goals.

So now we know pretty much what to look for when hiring a coach, but what’s the next step?
The Internet is still as huge as it had been ten minutes ago.
This was enough for her to start an arduous rant about all these sharlatans who call themselves (spiritual) coaches and mess up people with their untrained ways.
I am writing this because it highlights an issue that must be addressed. As much as the rant was uncalled for there is some truth to it.
You will get a better understanding of the way the coach/consultant is operating when you sit down for the first time.
I doubt that all coaches stay within their realms of asking questions and all consultants tell their clients what to do.
