“Follow Catherine Your Source of Inspiration for 2012 and Beyond”

If you are a follower and subscriber of my blog, Follow Catherine, Your Source of Inspiration in 2012 and Beyond, you would have noticed that I talk about the Law of Attraction (some call The Secret) Transcendental Meditation, Quantum Physics, Unified Field, the Zero Field, Consciousness, Subconscious Mind, Declarations and many other topics. The articles are stories about my real experiences, some my imaginations, visualizations, declarations, and affirmations and how I weave them into my daily reality. The experiences I share with you have been a study in love for I love the exhilaration of living in this wonderful Universe.

I also interspersed the words you, my, your, our, in my writings because we are all one. When I speak, it is as if I am speaking for you and for me. As I am writing to you, I also am reflecting my connection to you and that my stories came about into this physical existence at this time because I am able to vocalize and put on paper, what it is that many of us have been wondering for awhile, and I am paving the way for more awareness. There is a wave of spirituality sweeping our planet and a desire for a higher awareness within all of us than what our media and our well-meaning family and Earth friends are telling us. I heard it said that we are being dumb-downed, a great description actually, but we are deliberate creators and what you focus on, you will receive and become your reality. So these articles and stories have been your creation and mine. Let’s enjoy this journey into our already awakened state of being.

This all adds up to a life of our own deliberate creation allowing you to explore life in this physical time space we call reality in this blue planet we call Earth. Most of us accept reality by default, we watch TV, we focus on it, and that becomes our life, our reality. We believe that what we see, touch, feel, hear and smell is reality, and we accept this reality. All I am saying is that there is a different life which you are the defining actor in a defining moment, on a defining stage, you create all that you experience, we are not used to questioning, Is this all there is? You have enough power to kick enough dirt here on Earth and send it flying into space and for that matter have it land on top of the Moon just by your focus and attention, it is the mind and our focus that creates for us. Our connection to the invisible force that aligns the planets is the same invisible force that beat your hearts and mine called intent (I also choose the word attention or focused attention) to describe this creative power that we are all connected to, we are one collective consciousness, and we create what we are experiencing just by our mere focus
to that empty space we describe as ether. Below this article are two videos by Deepak Chopra and John Hagelin, Ph.D. on Consciousness to give you a brief description, remembering, that this is a huge body of knowledge, and we are just touching the surface.

Recommended Evening Practice

Every night before sleeping when I am in between slumber and sleeping, I pose a question to the Universe. How do I solve this problem (replace with whatever your situation is or whatever is bothering you that you cannot solve or find a relief or closure to your dilemma)?

The following morning, I listen for the first thought in my mind. It is a very still voice, almost as if someone else is talking to me but the words and voice is coming from my mind and body. It is a clear thought, sometimes faint and sometimes loud but it is not your ordinary self-talk of thinking-thinking state of non-stop self inner talk described in the East as “busy mind”. The words you will hear are related to the question that you posed the night before, complete and concise (to the point) and not a long-winded thought. Many times I would not write it down thinking I will remember because it is so simple, so obvious, so short of an answer, but really clear and understandable and then as the morning goes by the thought or words would escape me. So I learned my lesson. The power of the thought diminishes as your mind gets to the thinking-thinking state of “I gotta get dressed for work, I feel like I have a sore throat, traffic is building, gotta pick up dry cleaning, stop to get gasoline, long line at Starbucks, wishing they had someone taking my coffee order by the curb, I don’t have to find parking, it’s raining, my hair would get wet, and I hate my job, etc.” Of course, I don’t give up, get mad at myself, or get disappointed. I continue with my day, staying in the present moment, staying positive, upbeat, full of hope, expecting what I want is already on its way. In the East they say, “chop wood, carry water,” you are at all times chopping wood, carrying water, because we live in the physical time and space, we continue to do this, go to work, do our best, pay our bills, pick up our children from the babysitter, pick up food and laundry, etc. By the way, there’s a lot of truth to this. You become absorb with what you are doing, when you chop wood, carry water, time goes by faster, and your heart is happier. So “chop wood, carry water” during the day, continue to contribute to mankind’s well-being and yours. Before you go to bed, practice your attention to receiving enlightenment the following morning and be ready to receive it, listened for that clear voice coming from you.

This does not happen overnight. It will take consistent non-stop practice every single night for many days, even many months. But when you get to the point that the practice is almost a habit like brushing your teeth, whooaah! it will knock your socks off.

Now that I am monitoring all of your comments, optimizing the website, and responding to any special request from subscribers and followers, during evening hours, I find myself so sleepy and tired and I would go to bed and fall right to sleep. I would forget the practice of talking to my Universe and posing a question, a question that I would like the answer from the Universe, rather than just from my own thinking or from someone’s opinion just so I can look at it from a different angle. I tell you, it is so much better to have a quiet mind and let your quiet mind reveal to you the answers. There will be no counter-thought and no counter-intention and everything will go smoothly as it was revealed to you. I would, of course, go right back into the practice as soon as I remember. Since I have experienced this conversation with my higher self and me, many times, I do not have the inner self-talk of “will I be able to do this again?” “Why did I stay up all night?” No, I stay present. Last night is not today, the only time is now and why would I go worrying about last night and resist time, it is now. So I stay present, in the now. I don’t resist now. My power is now. I shape my life now. I create now.

Remember, this stuff in our physical world, in quantum physics, is non-stuff, what we think as solids (meaning it has shape and form, you can touch and feel it, see it in physical form) are not solids at all. They only become solids showing up in our life, because we put our attention on it. Attention is everything. Nothing exists in our Universe without someone’s attention on it. Every invention has an inventor who focused on it and created it out of his or her mind. I can also say we are all inventors; we invent things, good or bad, all the time, with our mind. How do you know what you are inventing, you are experiencing them all, sooner or later. Remember to focus only on what you want. The Universe does not understand the words don’t or no. Only what you focus on is what will manifest in your life. So when you say, I don’t want a red car, red cars will keep showing up in your life because you focused on it. You get what you focus on. If you want a black car, think of black cars only.

What I described in the very beginning of this article that you would practice posing a question to the Universe as you are dozing off to sleep (slumber) is the same mechanism. You are creating them whatever it is you want to exist in your life by focusing on it before sleeping. While you are sleeping your body goes into a rest mode. When you wake up, whatever you focused on before going to bed the night before is what you will continue when you awaken. So think what it is you want the night before so that you do not have any competing topics when you wake up the following morning.

The practice is done in the midst of dozing off and not before because you are less conscious or less ruled by your mind, your logical mind. When you are dozing off is when your logical mind is out of the way and the subconscious mind, the mind that is not time-bound, (meaning it does not know it is Sunday and what time it is), is able to communicate to your higher consciousness what it is you want to know. The logical mind that thinks -you are crazy, – what do you think you are doing, – that does not make any sense, is falling asleep, out of the way, and now your mind is quiet. Your subconscious mind will now be able to deliver your message to your higher self fairly easily.

When you awaken, here are the Affirmations for Wealth and Success I’ve compiled for you to continue your deliberate creation. Read the affirmations below first to make sure it is in alignment with your intent. Then make it your own if you agree. You are responsible for your creation and no one else is creating for you, because you have your own mind which you own and can control. I and on the other hand, is just the messenger.

My Affirmations (Declarations) for Wealth and Success

My subconscious mind is a bank.

Every morning as I awaken I deposit thoughts of prosperity, success, wealth and peace in my subconscious mind.

I do the things I love to do and I do it for the joy and thrill of it.

I grow, learn, and reap the very best everyday by building in my mentality a wealth consciousness, ideas of wealth and abundance.

Wealth and Success represent the inner power of my subconscious mind.

The thoughts of wealth produce the feeling of wealth, so wealth is the only outcome.

Once I replaced the thoughts of when and how it is arriving in my life, abundance pour.

Abundance of love, pleasure, bliss, wealth, $dollars, success, prosperity, becomes my reality.

The only thing I need to be aware of is the feeling of its essence.

By day and by night I am being prospered in all my interests and activities.

My sales are improving every day.

I am happy at my job.

I am contributing in many wonderful ways to my community.

My children are doing well in school.

My spouse is supporting me in all that I do.


My commentary:

• You may add more of your desires here.
• Write it in present tense and it is already happening.
• You are no longer asking, so stop wanting. The Universe will just keep giving you more wanting.
• So remove any affirmations with the words “I want.” Instead say, I have, or I am.
• Write down one topic at a time and one characteristics of that topic. Do not mix your statements.
• For example, I am happy at my job and I am having a wonderful time spending a special evening with my spouse. Write this in 2 lines, separate sentences.
• Another example would be I have a pair of Michael Kors boots and a matching purse.
• Say instead I have a pair Michael Kors boots.
I have a purse to match the boots. (separate the sentences, use separate lines).

You may be asking, “But Catherine, how specific can I get?” I would like to answer this in another article, as it is another huge body of knowledge to cover. Stick to the affirmations and I will cover all the stuff that we all want at another writing in the near future. I used the example about stuff that we want because it is easier to show to make a differentiation of how to write a good affirmation.

Reading List:

I compiled most of the above affirmations from “Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy and some from all the other books I’ve studied.
I also want to introduce you to John Hagelin and Deepak Chopra, both contribute a great deal to where I am today.
John Samuel Hagelin (born June 9, 1954) is an American particle physicist, three-time candidate of the Natural Law Party for President of the United States (1992, 1996, and 2000), and the director of the Transcendental Meditation movement for the US.

Deepak Chopra (Hindi: दीपक चोपड़ा; born October 22, 1946) is an Indian medical doctor, public speaker, and writer on subjects such as spirituality, Ayurveda and mind-body medicine. Chopra began his career as an endocrinologist and later shifted his focus to alternative medicine. He now runs his own medical center with a focus on mind-body connections.[clarification needed] He is also a lecturer at the Update in Internal Medicine event, sponsored by Harvard Medical School’s Department of Continuing Education and the Department of Medicine. Chopra was an assistant to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi before starting his own career in the late 1980s by publishing self-help books on New Age spirituality and alternative medicine. A friend of Michael Jackson for 20 years, Chopra came to widespread public attention in July 2009 when he criticized the “cult of drug-pushing doctors, with their co-dependent relationships with addicted celebrities”, saying that he hoped Jackson’s death, attributed to an overdose of a prescription drug, would be a call to action.

Are you a deliberate Creator?

Hello Again,
I wrote this in September of 2010. I thought I would share it with you. Please enjoy. Savor your moments.

Be the Experiencer, Be the Flow-er of Energy, Personal Declarations of a Life of Bliss and Peace

I awakened from a blissful slumber. The night before I spoke with my Source as I always do every night before sleeping.

I posed many questions. What is my purpose? Why did I choose to project myself into this physical world?

This blue planet seemed to have attracted many more like me.

Do we have to go through life to experience contrast?
Why do we have to experience turmoil, physical, and emotional pain?
How come we did not stay on course? Why didn’t I stay on course?

I know and understood now that I wanted to experience unspeakable Joy!

What is it that attracted me to be me, Catherine, to be born to my chosen mother and father, and why the Philippines, why not Finland?

Will I know the answers to these questions before I decide to leave this life I chose?

Will I finish this life and complete my purpose, to complete the desire that is strong enough of a desire that I projected myself into this physical body?

Was I at all worried or concern that I cannot go back to pure positive energy where I came from, Eternal.

Why am I here? How do I stay on course? How do I stay blissful when there’s so much to do and accomplish, goals to meet, and there’s many distractions?

And why did I choose to forget previous lives and to promise myself to live in just these short moments without attachment to the past?

(See My commentary below)

What I expect is already here.

Built in all of my perceived problems are the solutions ready for me to tap into. For in the middle of chaos is an underlying orderliness, the solution is already here.

When I live in the Infinite I sense and live peace, because I know things are in their right places. I already created them. I need to live fully knowing what I want is already here.

Staying in the infinite supply, staying in harmony with the Source, there’s this infinite supply to partner with – it will work for me and with me.

I have it in my thoughts, I have it in my feelings, in my words and actions, I stay with it.

In between living to know the answers to questions, loving and living, knowing I am Infinite and everywhere, my life moves, constantly changing, and from an Infinite observer’s vantage point, my problems, questions, concerns, perceived lack, anxiety, struggles, all are a part of this world of change, they all blend into an eternal journey, of bliss, of ease, of unsettling feelings, of something is not right and then the storm passes, the sky is clear.

And thank goodness, because we want balance and harmony, because we ask, because we focus, we create the answers to our questions. We are all eternal creators of our own experiences. What we focus on, we get.

Much like a storm never goes on forever; it always has an ending and a beginning. The storms in your life will pass, rest assured of that.

I find the feeling place, If I am not here to earn or to prove myself right, then I must be the worthy receiver of “All That Is”.

I love the feeling of eagerness for the impending desire of meeting my soul mate and then with a blink of an eye, in an instant second, he is in front of me. Time does not exist. That is how we create; our focus brings about our reality.

I love my life.

I love the eagerness for the exciting feeling of abundance flowing to me.

I love my experiences, experiences of passion, of purpose, of my intention to flow energy to all I touch and to all that makes me happy and blissful.

Experiences of Joy flow to me.

I love the exhilaration – It is going to feel good to eat delicious food. It is gonna feel good to meet new people.

I love the feeling of good companion, good sights, great lovemaking while listening to the pitter patter of the rain against the rooftop.

I love it.

The deliberate creation of it excites me.

Aligning to it is exhilarating. I feel the vibrant passion rising within me.

My skin is warmly radiantly experiencing the desires that flow out from me. It is exhilarating.

My heart is full, it cannot be filled anymore. One of the teachings of the Tao, is “when the cup is full, you stop pouring.”

It is as simple as that.

I feel the passion I have for life and living.

Life is delicious. I embrace the passionate Joy of life.

I am, You adore me.

I am Valuable, I am Worthy,

I am a Flower, (Flow-er)

I am an Allower,

I am a Lover,

I am a Selective Sifter.

Reality is what I create, not what others say it is. “Look Cathy”, they say, “you gotta face reality, it cannot be because there is this report, look at the numbers, it is all over Radio and TV, the Internet gurus, says it cannot be,” and I say, “that is their truth, I agree, it is their truth, their very own reality” because they and others have focused their energy to create that which is reflected on the evidence they presented. And so I sift through many realities, and I choose, I create that which is my reality. My reality is:

I flow energy,

I direct energy and guide the energy to my desires.

Desires that keep expanding and flowing from me.

I am Happy.

I am a Happy Receiver.

I am exhilarated every single moment.

My heart fills easily with Joy.

And I direct that Joy to others,

Because I am a Focuser,

I am a deliberate Focuser of energy.

I Allow, I Receive, I am Blissful.

I am Love.

My commentary:

This particular piece of writing which includes declarations freeing me from getting caught up with thoughts and questions that spiral downward to nowhere but apathy, if not stopped, was inspired from a feeling of uneasiness and mis-alignment to my true desire to pursue a peaceful and harmonious living. On the way to that pursuit, barriers appear before me, the only way out of it is through it.

Fully knowing that we create by thinking it first, the only way out of it is to change the thoughts weighing us down and replace it with the thoughts we are wanting. The declarations above which begin with “I am” will serve as the thought, the self-inner talk, and replace old thoughts and habits that do not serve you in the long run. Above all our desires is the desire to feel good when we have it.

Speaking from our three-dimensional reality, two objects cannot occupy the same space, (one can be on top, beside it, on either side, or under it) but not the same space. Two different opposing thoughts cannot occupy the same space in your mind. You cannot think health and reap sickness, you cannot think strong and come out weak, you cannot smile and be angry too at the same time, try this, frown and smile, at the same time. It is out of alignment with Universal Truth. The truth is what you focus on you create. And how do you know what you are thinking?

You are experiencing them all, they appear in your life at some point in your life. If you like what you are living then keep thinking them. But if you do not, you have a choice; change what you are thinking to thoughts that are in alignment with what you desire at the present time, because it is now, not yesterday, and not tomorrow, because life is now, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not here. Abraham Hicks calls this state of deliberate creating, the leading edge of thought. Your power to create your future experiences is now.

This reminds me of when I teach Yoga. Inspired by the message from Kahlil Gibran (see excerpt below, I always include the bow and arrow pose, which is executed from the Warrior 2 pose (Virabhadrasana 2) with your right leg forward at 90 degree angle, lunging forward and with thumbs up, you imagine an arrow appearing at your left, stringing the arrow to its bow at right hand, feeling the strength of the string and releasing it, the arrow goes swift and far, which I say, “a symbolic act of sending Yoga practitioners into the future taking with them glad tidings and the message of peace, love, and respect for all living things. From this pose, you are sending this generation and our future generations to a life of bliss. We create our life today.

Here’s a message from Kahlil Gibran:

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness, for even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Your power to create, your future is now. Do you listen to your self- talk. What thoughts are more predominant – positive-negative, allowing-resistance, confusion-clarity, thought-counter-thought, intention-counter-intention. So what is you reality? Are your experiences the balance of your thoughts. Your power to create your future is now.

Now that I am on the subject of future generations, it reminds me our children.

Why do children seem to flow without concept of time?

Children are great examples of Law of Attraction practitioners.
I have two truly beautiful daughters. The younger one, at age 5, chose to be a competitive cheerleader rather than a gymnast. She used to cut out pictures of dogs and cell phones. She competes around the East Coast and so she is always in a crowd in huge auditoriums where her team competes. This small 5-year old body among thousands of people in this competition venue makes me a bit uneasy but I was an athlete, and once an athlete, always an athlete. It is in the blood and there’s no resisting it. She will find a way to compete and project her body into space for the exhilaration of it. I was a cheer Mom for 5 years so we travel a lot to many places. She really wanted a cell phone. Her explanation is that “Mom, I know how to take care of it (she has observed me take care of my cell phone and charging it) plus, she added, “You can always find me in the crowd. You can always call me to make sure I am okay.” I’m sold, I can feel my heart melting, giving in. She cut out pictures of cell phones, pasted it on a poster board, on the refrigerator door, on her bedroom door, on her backpack. So whenever I move around in the house, it is plainly visible to me. She is not bothered by the fact that she is only 5, and adults just don’t trust children to carry cell phones and along with that comes a monthly bill. What would my mother-in-law think about what kind of mother I am. I gave it to her anyway because it feels right, and I gave her my trust. She proved herself capable and the cell phone did gave me a bit of security. By the way, to get trust, you must give trust.

My daughter had no reservation (or guilt or counter-thought is a better description) about making known what she wants. Is it because, to them life is like a game and we have been de-genuisized, thinking life is suppose to be serious. Life is a game consisting of freedoms, purposes, and barriers. We agree to play it, we live it, and we create the game, we create the rules, and we decide which game to play and who the players are.

Children are born geniuses, they are born causative, they make things happen, because they are in it to play a game, they are never the effect. Until, the adults, well-meaning in intention, kept insisting they face reality, — their dreams are never going to come true, what they want they won’t get, and just keep wishing, there will be always a barrier, and there will be disappointments along the way. We protect them from our own experiences and disappointments.

So we don’t project ourselves to live an exhilarating life. Did you agree or did you not agree? Do you point the finger and do you blame someone else for your predicament?

Everything is an agreement. You choose to agree or disagree, nevertheless, it is an agreement. Choose no, choose yes, in the end of it all, you choose.

Our Universe expands all the time and we create that expansion. When we say we are not going anywhere, I will stay right here, I won’t change, I won’t desire, I won’t want, we are actually going against nature, we are really sliding backwards, slowly, the change is gradual and we become unaware.

The truth is we are an ever expanding consciousness, just like our ever expanding Universe.

Do you want to be caught up thinking that you get up every morning to complete something? Or to fix a broken world or a dying Planet?

I am not saying, keep a blind eye and turn your head in another direction. Do what you must. You are the creator of your life. You are either doing it by default or you are deliberately focusing your life.

Our planet will take care of itself; it will evolve on its own time. As for completing something, on your way to completing a task, a new desire is born from you to begin again, to try something new, to experience the next exhilarating desire rising from within you. Yes, it might seemed you need to complete a project, because you don’t want anything that has not gone through to its finality, else it haunts you later, but life is a beginning and an ending, an ending signals a beginning. Where does ending and beginning and beginning and ending start and end in this circle of creation? The only thing for sure is that we are ever changing and we are ever wanting, we are ever expanding. We are Eternal.

The purpose of life is Joy, the basis of life is Freedom, and the goal of life is Expansion. This is life, this is bliss.

I wish you All Health, All Wealth and All Love.

May all your desires be spontaneously and your wishes instantly fulfilled in this lifetime!

Love Live, Live Love

Khalil; born Gubran Khalil Gubran, January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) also known as Kahlil Gibran, was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of the Ottoman Mount Lebanon mutasarrifate), as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. He is chiefly known in the English speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, and became extremely popular in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.
