Contemplation versus affirmation.
There is considerable similarity between the 2 processes. With an affirmation of what we are doing is holding a repetitive phrase within our conscious awareness. In the exercises that we’ve been running the phrase has been ‘ I’m a money magnet’. If we were to simply repeat this phrase over and over again it would be referred to as either a mantra or an affirmation. The primary difference with contemplation is that we are looking for what are the consequences or conclusions that we come to by holding this thought.
An example of this could be that we start off with the statement ‘ I am a money magnet’ and this leads us to ask, what does this mean? our mind may give us a response of something like ‘this would mean I would have more time to do the things that I enjoy’. By doing this we have created a link between the sentence ‘I am money magnet’ and the concept of having ‘more time to enjoy things’. Of course once this realisation is made we start again ‘I am a money magnet’ this time we might come up with the idea literally of how to make more money. Each time we go through the process of asking the question we create a new neural Association. The primary purpose of this is that every time we create new associations it has an effect on what we see in the world of physical reality. This in many ways is quite similar to the way character recognition software operates. The 1st step for a computer to use character recognition is that it has to have a library of letters to compare with what has been scanned. If it has no letters on the inside it can’t see them on the outside. Human beings are very much the same if they don’t have a pattern on the inside of their head it very difficult for them to perceive it in physical reality. I suppose simply put if I’ve been trained to see the colour blue, I can see blue. However if all of a sudden purple is presented to me and I have no pattern on the inside of my head to recognise purple, this colour would simply be invisible to me.
By using the process of contemplation we are growing our ability to see things and take advantage of things that are always around us.
When we enter into the world of quantum physics and esoteric studies we end up doing exactly the same thing. We hold an image of our completed goal in our mind. Please hear the most important thing of all is that it is of the completed goal. As we hold this image it is also imperative that we experience all of the internal feelings of actually having reached this point in time. It is through this process that we actually start to vibrate with emotion. The primary purpose of course is because of the rule of harmonics. Things that vibrate at a particular frequency harmonise with things in their environment of the same frequency. So in other words like begets like. If I’m feeling wealthy then I attract wealth into my life. This is the reason that we use the sentence ‘ I’m a money magnet’.
