Hello from beautiful South Africa! I’m currently living the dream in the Madikwe Private game resort, where I’m getting up close and personal with Lions, Elephants, Giraffes, Zebras and more. Holy shit people, it’s like my bucket list decided to just clear itself. And the best part is, I didn’t have to make any of it happen. I didn’t arrange any of it or even pay for it. Hell, I never even visualized it.
This is just another peak experience in a succession of many in my life. Why does awesome shit like this keep happening to me? Well, I’ve discovered how to put myself into a state of receptivity, one which allows for absolutely awesomeness to manifest in my reality over and over again. And in today’s video, I’ll share with you just how I do that.
Quick note: This is my first video on the road, and I tried something new (I shot this with my phone…). Please forgive the shakiness of the camera. I really like the idea of being able to do on-location videos without having to lug around a lot of equipment, and being able to take you guys with me on my adventures. I’ll get better at the technical stuff as I go.
Hello my Happy Shiny Puppies in training, I am coming to you from the road today! I am in the land of absolute luxury in the Madikwe Private Reserve in South Africa. It’s a game reserve in South Africa and it is an absolute 5 star experience!
I want to talk to you today about how this came to be, about how I managed to manifest something so amazing into my life, and how this entire year has been just an absolute mind blowing experience, one after the other after the other. I also want to talk about something I’ve discovered about how to shift your energy into a space where these kinds of experiences aren’t just something that happen once in a lifetime, but happen again and again and again.
Fixing your reality
Most people, when they start focusing on creating their own reality or they seek out The Law of Attraction and the kind of work that I do, they always start by focusing on creating something specific in their life. For example, they want to create money, or they want a better job, or they want to have a great relationship. It’s usually all about fixing something. They want to create money so they can pay off their bills and can then go and create amazing experiences like this in their lives. They want a better job, because they hate their job. They want an amazing relationship because they hate their relationship, or because they’re tired of being single and lonely. That’s all fine and good, and if that’s where you are, that’s where you start. You start by noticing what you don’t want and then noticing what you want instead, and you go for that by lining up with the feeling of what you want, lining up with the feeling of having already accomplished that and then having those things come in; but that’s not the end of it. A lot of people think that this is the goal. “Let me just fix my life, let me just get rid of all the pain and then I’ll be done!” But that’s just half of the equation. There’s this whole other side to it; there’s this whole other part of the spectrum (if you’ve read my book you’ll know about the spectrum).
There’s a whole other part to this that most people completely miss and that is: Once you’ve got rid of the big pain points in your life – you now have enough food, you now have shelter, or you no longer feel like every day is hell, you’re starting to ride that awesomeness wave – you’ll want to take your focus off the specifics. Take your focus off the idea of fixing something and off the idea of creating something, because it’s the opposite of what you don’t want. Your life doesn’t have to be completely empty of things that you don’t want in order for to do this, by the way; you can actually start to do this at anytime. It’s just that most people have a hard time doing it if there are still things that are really painful in their lives. It doesn’t mean you can’t do this; it just means it can be difficult for you. If you could give yourself permission to do this, life would open up faster for you. Either way, work with where you and what works for you.
Take the specifics out of what you want
What I have discovered is that when I take my focus off any kind of specifics (which I’ve been doing for quite some time now), and I just open myself up to desires that aren’t about fixing anything, my energy opens up all the more and amazing experiences start to come in. Experiences I could never have orchestrated. For example, I might want to create the concept of freedom in my life, which doesn’t mean I’m not currently free. I can have lots of freedom in my life, I can experience a great deal of freedom in my life and yet I still want to take that further. It looks something like this:
Instead of creating freedom from a place of feeling trapped, I can create freedom on a level of being free in every moment, to float through life, to be fully present to completely and totally express myself in the most creative way possible – with no limitations. It’s not about fixing something, in terms of bringing freedom to a situation that doesn’t have any; it’s about taking freedom to a whole different level.
Going on Safari in South Africa has been on my bucket list for years and years, possibly decades and yet it isn’t something that I sat down with any time recently or thought about with any specifics or even something I thought I could make happen. It was always something that I was happy to let happen, one day. I didn’t think about this specifically, but I have been focusing on feeling good, focusing on what kind of experiences I would like to have and what that feels like; but only in very general terms – ultra general terms. I was focusing on what adventures feel like, what awesomeness feels like, and being as present as I could each and every day, and in that state of receptivity (receiving), more and more awesomeness has been coming in.
This has been the year that I have crossed more items off my bucket list than at any other time! I did a Ted Talk earlier this year which I will share with you as soon as it’s finished editing I promise! I’m not in charge of that; I do keep checking on it but it’s not quite done yet. That was an absolute bucket list item, and that just came to me. I didn’t have to work for that or orchestrate it; it just came together. Going on Safari in South Africa, where I am right now, was thrown together for me. I didn’t have to do anything to organize it and it’s an absolute 5 Star experience! I was flown here on a private jet; again, another bucket list item was to fly in a private plane. The entire trip has been an absolute dream, including the 30+ hour journey to get here (if you can believe that!). It’s been an absolute dream the entire way; 5 Star service all the way. And I didn’t even have to pay for it!! I didn’t have to make it happen; it just fell in my lap. It was all done for me; it just found me.
Deliberately create the reality that you truly want
My life seems to be turning into a series of these kinds of awesome experiences, one after the other, after the other. I’m not telling you this to brag, or to say how great my life is; I’m telling you this because my life hasn’t always been like this. This is something that you can orchestrate too. I’m not special in anyway; I don’t have a talent that you don’t have. It’s something that you can orchestrate, but it’s something that you orchestrate incrementally. It’s something that you have to do deliberately, if you aren’t one of these amazingly talented people where it comes naturally to you. It is something that you can do, and here is one of the ways in which you do it: You open up your energy and you focus on awesomeness, and then let it come to you. Again, work with where you are. If, right now, your life feels more comfortable and safer for you to still be in “fix it” mode, that’s ok. But if you’ve started to already get some momentum going and things are going pretty well (it doesn’t mean you don’t have something unwanted in your life, but maybe you’re just not in ultra pain anymore), then try opening up to the very general feelings of what you want. For example, adventure, or things being really, really easy, or clarity or awesomeness. Find a way to generate those feelings within you and then be as present as you can at all times. You will be amazed at what will come into your life when you do this. It’s just like walking through an awesome, awesome dream, being aware of what’s happening and being able to appreciate every second of every day.
Hopefully with this video I have been able to inspire you to give it a try and I have opened you up to the idea that what you want, can not only come to you, but what can come can far surpass what you thought you wanted. Hopefully you will also be able to recognize that you actually wanted it without having had to define it. Which is the most awesome place to be you guys, oh my god!
I just have to say, this hotel is the bomb! We flew in on a private plane, and then we were brought here in Safari trucks, the type of trucks I’ve only ever seen in the movies. When we got here all the staff from the house, who are amazing people, stood at the front and sang for us (they sang really well), and welcomed us with drinks! This place is absolutely amazing and the food is gourmet! We went out this morning and saw a lion, super up-close (I will share more about that in another video). We got to see Zebras, Giraffes, Eagles, Impalas, Elephants, – all kind of animals. We are getting really up close to these animals. They are not afraid of the trucks so we can get close enough to take some amazing pictures and to really feel their energy. It is unbelievablebeing here, soaking up this origin energy and talking to these amazing people from South Africa. They are so open-hearted and so full of love. I would not blame them one bit if they were full of hatred and kicked us all out of the country, but they are so open and full of love and just so full of healing. It is so unbelievably healing for me to be here.
I will see if I can do another video, as I don’t want to make this one too long, on the experiences I’m having with the wildlife and the energy that I’m feeling here. I also had an experience with an African Shaman that I’d love to tell you guys about, so maybe in the next video; foreshadow, foreshadow!
Until then, I am here in the Madikwe Private Animal Reserve in South Africa, and I cannot wait to get your comments on this!
I love you guys! Thank you for bringing your light to the world. Bye!
