Left brain, right brain

Andy Baggot Dreams book pg 41


The following exercise is designed to help you integrate the two sides of your brain. Find a quite room, where you know that you will not be disturbed, and lie or sit comfortably with your eyes closed. Say the following in your head, "I want to communicate with my left brain." If your mind is full of thoughts such as "Am I doing this correctly?" or "This is strange, and stronger.," then you are listening to the chatter of your left brain. Ask it to be quiet, then tell it the following: "You are a very important part of my being and I am grateful that you have served me well thus far in my life. I would like you to understand that you are not fulfilling your true potential, and I would like to help you to become better, wiser, and stronger."

Next, say in your head, "I want to communicate with my right brain." Then say to your right brain, "I thank you for guiding me thus far in my life and I would like you to fulfill your true potential by becoming stronger and an equal part of my consciousness."

Now visualize a strand of pure energy connecting your left and right brain. Mentally introduce them to each other and tell them, "you are both vital parts of my being. If you work together and cooperate, we can achieve great things." Finally, bring your awareness back to the room, take a couple of deep breaths, and open your eyes.

My Thoughts:

I've tried this and I love it. I've had some really fun interesting dreams just by telling my mind commands. try it, it's fun....

Honesty and humility

Final Word from andy baggot dreams pg 124-125

Honesty and humility

If you understand and put into action the lessons contained within this book, you will be well on the path to happiness, health, and fulfillment. You must never become complacent, for the moment you do, you will lose the dream. You must remain humble and honest at all times, both toward yourself and toward those you meet. In Mexico they say that the people who hurt you the most are your soulmates. This is because they teach you the most. Remember that a comfortable life leads to stagnation. Never believe that you have "made it", because the only time you will truly have made it is when you leave this planet.

Our worst fault is our preoccupation with the faults of others. Look forever within yourself. The answers to all your questions and the solutions to all your problems lie within you. You already know everything you need to know; you have simply forgotten how to bring it to your conscious mind. This is why exploring the land of your dreams is so important. It gives you access to truth and understanding. By truly understanding yourself, you will understand the world around you. If you are forever criticizing or finding fault with others, you are only drawing attention away from your own shortcomings. Look within and resolve to change your weaknesses into strengths, and you will never need to find fault with others. We are all human and none of us is perfect. No one is better or worse than you - that person is just different.

A serious choice

If you choose to embrace the truths within this book, you should do it for yourself, and by yourself, seeking nothing in return except happiness, health, and fulfillment. Understand that deciding to follow this path may well be the most life-changing decision you have ever made. Do not let others tell you that you cannot have the life of your dreams. They may tell you that you are living an illusion, but in fact it is they who are deluded. It is your right and your destiny-embrace it.

MY Thoughts:

I definitely need to be reminded of this, since I often find myself annoyed at the actions of others, when I  should really be focused on fixing me! Remember to focus on what you can do to focus on fixing you, and not focusing on what is wrong with other people.

Have a blessed day!

Mastering the Ego

When you send out pure thoughts, untarnished by emotion, to the universe, that energy comes back to you purely and efficiently. To be able to send out pure thoughts you must have mastered the ego. It is the ego that says "I desire this," "I deserve that", and "it's not fair," but all these thoughts come from a perspective of selfishness and self-centeredness. In order to be able to create your own reality you must send out selfless thoughts that are completely untarnished by emotion. This does not mean that you have no thoughts for yourself; it means that you do not place yourself at the heart of those thoughts.

If you desire things so that people will think better of you or so that you can increase your pride, then you will not find the satisfaction with life that everyone is seeking. Your thoughts must be pure. When you send out your dreams into the universe you must do so with total nondependence. This means that you are not depending on the dream coming true for your personal happiness. You have to find satisfaction with your present life before you can successfully manifest other things in your life.

pg 105 dreams, andy baggot..

Sometimes this is not always easy to do in life. We don't always have pure thoughts to send out, but we can with practice. Keep trying and you will get better everyday. I am finding out that it is better to seek inner happiness, and to not be focused on material things for happiness. Seek your bliss, and the other things will appear to you.

Good luck and God bless..

What do mentally stable people do?

Have a Clear Andy Baggot, Dreams book...pg115

The people who think with a clear mind are happy, healthy, and fulfilled. They depend upon no one and take nothing personally. They understand that everything they experience they have attracted to themselves in order to learn. They embrace even the greatest hardships with total pleasure and are always looking for new lessons to learn. They eat a healthy balanced diet and are free from all addictions, because they understand that what they put into their bodies affects the quality of their thinking and their lives. They understand that the body is their temple and should be treated with honor and respect - as should everything in creation. They harbor no grudges or resentments, and view life as an adventure full of surprises and miracles.

If you want the life of your dreams, you must learn to think clearly. You must let go of everything,  because by holding on to things you are stopping yourself from being free. Hold on to nothing and reject nothing. Understand that fighting a problem only compounds the problem by feeding it energy. You must learn to embrace everything in life and learn from everything. By doing so you will be drawing energy away from problems instead of feeding them energy. Once you have learned everything that a situation has to teach you, it will cease to exist in your life.

There is so much here for me to learn from! I notice when I don't eat healthy, that I feel horrible all over my body and tired. I'm used to eating a vegan diet, but when I fall off the wagon and go get a whopper and a large coke, then I really feel it later on and my body is not in harmony with my life.

Isn't it interesting the more you focus on something, that you will start to see it manifest in your life? When I read this, it makes me think of the two most important things that "mentally stable" people do. one is to get rid of suspicion, and two is to get rid of resentment. Just learning these two things alone  helps me to escape most problematic situations in my life, just as I just read above. "they take nothing personally".

I know that "embracing hardships" also rings true for me, since I've found in God's inspired word.

James 1:2-8

New King James Version (NKJV)

Profiting from Trials

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

"you must let go of everything"

Philippians 4:6

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Lastly he mentions that once you've learned everything from a problem that it ceases to exist. Have you noticed that once we have taken care of a problem that a  new one emerges? Problems are here to help us grow and learn from life and makes us stronger.

It's also important how are attitude is toward the problem, then the problem itself. Remember when Johnny Depp said, it's not the problem, it's your attitude toward the problem....

Have an awesome day and be happy!

True Happiness!

How not to give away your happiness:
If you hold on to anger or pain, it means that you are forever in danger of giving your happiness away to other people. This is because people can "push your buttons" and bring out that anger or pain, leaving you powerless to prevent this. Holding on to any negative emotion will potentially put you in the same situation. No one can make you angry or hurt you - only you choose to get angry or be hurt. This is a hard truth for people to grasp, but all the time you choose not to see it you are simply a victim of fate, never knowing who will "rob" you of your happiness.

pg 110 dreams Angy Baggot

This is something that I need to remember, because I do find myself being upset for the actions of others. And I know I have chosen that thought or thoughts, and I just want those angry hateful feelings to just leave me alone. All we can do it let them go! Focus on something else that is lovely and happy as long as possible!

Reminds me of the scripture:

Philippians 4:8

New International Version (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Let's make it work!

Be strong!

If you are going thru hell, just keep on going and be strong! Things happen for a reason, but it's all about our attitudes toward it. If you are wronged or mistreated, be nice anyways! Life is way too short to be miserable and hang your head. Change negative into positive, it's all in our heads! We can change our live just thru a twist in our perception. Try it and see what happens this week!

Have an awesome day!

Make money just for being happy!

I've learned that it's very important for what it is that you are aiming for in your life. We all seem to strive for the outward things or "material things" for our happiness. If I had this or that or a better "job", then that would make me happy!

But, I have learned that this just isn't so! I read something interesting online not so long ago about this fact. Someone had mentioned that if you were hungry, that you wouldn't tape sandwiches all over your body to make you full, right? That's the same as going for outward things to make us happy, when happiness really comes from within.

And to have the happiness, you have to believe that God is our father and is able to bless us in every way possible in our lives. God has great riches, and he wants to bless us with it. Focusing on lack brings more lack, but believing that we can live abundant bountiful lives means that we need to not contradict ourselves and think of the lack, but to think of Abundance!

Live with the thought in mind, that I have a rich father in Heaven who blesses me and takes care of me, and that should reflect in our lives and the decisions that we make. If you believe it, we should be able to act out that belief.
