Spiritual Growth Book Excerpt
Chapter 3 Connecting with the Universal Mind
Greetings from Orin!
Everything around you exists as part of the Universal Mind, also called God/All-That-Is. The Universal Mind is unmanifest essence–the substance out of which all physical form is created. You are part of this Infinite Intelligence. This Higher Intelligence exists in perfection and perfectly creates your thoughts, beliefs, and inner pictures as the world you experience around you. You can learn to tap into this Higher Mind and draw to you unlimited health, abundance, new ideas, knowledge, and anything else you want.
The Universal Mind is perfection. It perfectly creates what you think about. How can you best use your connection to this vast, all-powerful force? Think about what you want rather than what you don't want, for the Universal Mind creates whatever you think about. Focus steadily on your visions, hopes, dreams, and goals, and intend to have them.
Learn how to do "energy work"
before taking action for the best results.
How do you connect with the Universal Mind and use this connection to create what you want? You are always linked with the Universal Mind, for It creates whatever you think about. You can learn to consciously link with the Universal Mind by doing what I will call "energy work" before you take physical action to create what you want.
Energy work involves using thought, imagination, and visualization before you take action. Energy work uses the power of light, magnetism, and your link with the higher dimensions to create results.
You can do energy work by using your imagination to turn what you want into patterns, colors, symbols, or a feeling-sense. You do energy work by then imagining the pattern to be more beautiful, open, and harmonious. As you mentally picture and play with the image of what you want to create you are working with it as energy.
Before you do energy work, first concentrate on the results you want to create. Then, imagine your mental aura as a gridwork of light, extending straight upward. The higher it goes, the finer the gridwork becomes. Some people picture this gridwork as a screen whose mesh grows finer the higher it reaches. Others see it as a fabric of woven light, imagining the weave to be closer and finer in the higher dimensions.
Send your awareness upward through this gridwork and imagine that you are linking with the higher aspects of the Universal Mind. Imagine you are meeting with what you want to create in its energy state, and mentally work with whatever image comes into your mind to make it more beautiful. When it feels good as energy, you can "draw" it into your reality by imagining you are turning this energy into subatomic particles of light that you harmonize with and bring into your being. You can learn to do this within seconds, and doing this can create amazing and rapid results.
When you work with energy it may feel as if you are "making it up." You can create real results by imagining you are working with the energy of what you want to create.
Learn to use your imagination.
Learn to use your imagination. Your ability to picture something that does not yet exist in your reality is one of your highest abilities. Your imagination allows you to think of having more than you have now. It transcends this dimension and connects with the Universal Mind where anything is possible. Your imagination can connect with what you want as energy, play with it, add light to it, and then bring it into your reality quickly and easily.
Take time to daydream, fantasize, relax, and think about what you want to create. Practice thinking in new, unlimited ways. Unlimited thinking puts you in touch with the larger picture of your life and links you with the expanded vision of your Higher Self. Enlarge your vision of what is possible. Think positively, and imagine yourself having more than you have now.
You are a co-creative force with the Universal Mind. It creates for you the best that is possible within the boundaries of your current ability to receive what you are asking for. If you think in expanded, creative, and open ways, the Universal Mind will reflect this by giving you the more expansive things you think about. Think about an area in your life you would like to improve. Take a moment right now to picture it just as you want it to be. Affirm that what you want will happen, and trust that it will manifest in the perfect time and in the perfect way. Create it as energy, and use the meditation that follows to help bring it into your life.
