Two weeks ago, my friend Meryl Abrahams gave me a flash drive containing the complete seasons 1 and 2 of a sci-fi television series I’d never heard about. She said, “I have a feeling you might enjoy it.” Well, not only am I enjoying it but I have to confess that I’ve become a Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. junkie.
That’s the last thing I needed! Another television series to get hooked on. It’s a good addiction though. Specially for an overachiever like me who, has a tendency to overwork himself and take little time to have fun and enjoy life.
What I most like about the series is the transformation that each one of the main characters goes through when they join the team and have to overcome their own fears and limitations in order to achieve the impossible. And you know, I’m all about transformation and growth. That’s precisely why I became a coach.
A scene that recently touched me was when Director Nick Fury, played brilliantly by Samuel L. Jackson, shares with his team the key to accomplishing anything you want. He tells them,
“A man can accomplish anything when he realizes he’s a part of something bigger. A team of people that share that conviction can change the world.”
I know, I know, it’s a super hero series and this may even sound like a cheesy line. But, isn’t it filled with so much wisdom and spiritual truth?
To accomplish, or manifest anything you want in life, you have to believe or hold on to the idea that you’re not alone but part of a greater system or intelligence that is much greater than you. And that, through that intelligence you’re already connected, both physically and energetically to whatever it is you want.
Physically, you’re already connected through a maximum of Six Degrees of Separation to your soulmate, future employer, business parter, ideal clients or future best friend. And, if you all you do is start connecting with others and asking them for what you want, you’ll eventually get exactly what you want. As Byron Katie often says, “You could have anything in life you wanted if you were willing to ask 1,000 people for it.” That means you must be willing to receive up to 999 noes!
Energetically, you’re also connected with whatever it is you most desire, not just at the quantum level, but also at the vibrational level. Everything in the universe emits an energy, frequency or vibration. And the key to increasing or raising this vibration so that it matches whatever it is you’re wanting to manifest, is in your emotions. This is where your heart comes in.
You see, your heart is the center of your emotional system, generating the largest electro-magnetic field around your body. So the key to increasing your vibration and expanding this field is in your heart. Plain and simply, the higher the vibration the greater your attracting power. The lower your vibration, the more you’ll be pushing away or repelling whatever it is you most want.
In the book How to Attain you Desires, published in 1929 and now long out of print and forgotten, author Genevieve Behrend asks the famous author and teacher, Judge Thomas Troward, for his best advice about dealing with the negative emotions that get in the way of manifesting your heart’s desires. This is what he says,
“When the triad of enemies–fear, anxiety, and discouragement–assails you, poisoning your mind and body, weakening your power to attract what you want, begin instantly to take deep breaths, and repeat as fast as you can, aloud or silently, the following affirmation, which is an antidote to the poison and a powerful assurance and attraction of Good:
The Life in me is inseverably connected with all the life that exists, and it is entirely devoted to my personal advancement.”
Notice that Troward instructs Genevieve to first take a series of deep breaths. Why? Because these breaths harmonize your emotional system, neutralizing any negative emotions, giving you immediate access the inner resources of your mind, and the intuitive guidance of your heart.
This is the essence of what it means to manifest from the heart: learning to harness the magnetic power of your emotions, while building the awareness that you’re part of a greater intelligence, system, or field through which you’re already “inseverably connected” to whatever it is you want. An intelligence that is always supporting you, guiding you, and holding the highest possibility for your life.
When you finally discover this and start taking action from this place, you’ll start achieving the impossible and, who knows, maybe even become the next agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
