Thanks, for being interested in Law Of Attraction! :O)
Well, the Oki (Energy In Motion Meetup) with Renae & Andries (PeaceRUs on PI)
went really deep, this Saturday.
At the Meetup, proper, we did QiGung, and Andries had a lot of stuff to process.
At the coffee shop, afterwards, I had a lot of stuff to process. I felt pretty proud of having done a bunch of process wheels. When Renae looked it over, she expressed concern about what I'll call a sort of glibness to the process. She had similar concerns about Andries's process wheels and even some process wheel work she had heard Abraham guide people through on YouTube.
The point of a process wheel is to help us dismantle unconstructive beliefs and replace them with constructive ones. The belief we desire to have is, by definition, unbelievable at the start of the process. This gap is bridged by jotting down things we CAN believe that point us toward that desired belief.
Problem is, this can turn into a mere intellectual game. Renae felt this process had deeper potential, and I started to get the feeling that Abraham taught it in its perhaps more superficial manner simply because it was the only way to accomodate such a large following, at the time. Renae's approach really was tailoring to fit immediate shifts in energy, helping me see the great value in connecting with a live teacher. (I know Renae & Andries aren't into being called teachers, but there are times when I want that old saying to resonate--that "When the student is ready, the teacher appears.")
I would later connect with some teachings by Robert Scheinfeld (BUSTING LOOSE FROM THE MONEY GAME) and notice similar advice that I hadn't been able to wrap my brain around, one bit!
I couldn't follow some of Renae's directions, because they involved connecting with the contrast, rather than the desired belief written on the page (at the center of the wheel). For Renae, the part that hurt didn't need to be written, since it was active now. But, for me, looking at the desired belief hid the contrast. So, she had me write the belief that caused me concern in the middle of the wheel, instead.
She also pointed out that I wouldn't need the large number of spokes from the wheel (from which we radiate the text--examples of things we CAN believe, in Abraham's version). Not if we went deep. So, what I wanted to ask myself, as I looked at the concern in the circle was, "What makes this particularly uncomfortable, right now?"
Not "in general," but "right now."
In the center, I had that "Money is hard to come by." Asking what made this particularly uncomfrable, right now, led me to write past one of the little spokes, that "I couldn't further an art project the way I wanted to." I wrote other things, too, but Renae could feel the immediacy and importance and pain of this for me, so she helped me see that this spoke was "telling" me what this concern was really all about. It's not about money, it's about satisfying work.
So, I started a new wheel with this in the center: "Satisfying work is hard to come by." It took a lot of prodding, and I felt a lot of feelings in the process, but among other things, I wrote past a spoke, "I've got a long list of failures." Renae helped me to flip that into "They've got a long list of failures." And, she was right: the revenge in back of that statement felt a lot better than the hopelessness I had begun with. Like all those publishers who had rejected HARRY POTTER, those who were ignoring me had lost out, big time! :O)
So, definitely study Abraham's focus wheel. Just, see what you can do to keep your feelings and discovery of this present moment fresh and direct!
Sunshine & Blessings,
