I am that I am
For several years, I’ve turned to a YouTube of Wayne Dyer’s in order to relax my mind.
Before the meditative music begins, Dr. Dyer describes how we connect with “God, the universe and the infinite source of energy” during meditation. When we recite the mantra, “I am that, I am”, we are asking and receiving energy with the divine. He explains that when we replace “that” in the mantra with our most desired wish it is the first step in asking for what we desire.
Meditation is our connection to “God” aka our highest self and when we use visualization and our imagination, we can create our future as if we are already in possession of what we desire. Once we figure out what we want and create in our mind who we will become in order to get it, we can then focus and concentrate on it.
We get to “see” ourselves as the person we’ve become in order to have what we want.
As Haanel writes in the MKE, part 17 section 3,
“This insight requires a quickening of the vibrations of the mind and is only secured when the mind is continuously concentrated in a given direction.”Charles Haanel, The Master Key System, 17:3
During meditation, we can hyper focus all of our energy and emotion on what we desire.
We’ve been learning from many sources these steps, especially the importance of focus and concentration. Over the past 3 months, I have been learning to create habits and learn skills such as meditating, imagining and thinking, I can feel the universe send me signs to let me know I am on track!
Wayne Dyer’s meditations and the phrase, “I am that I am” is evidence that the universe has been guiding me before I was even aware of it.
Thanks for connecting some more dots, Ann. I like Wayne Dyer as well, but never got into meditation. However, the ‘sit’ is a favourite practice now.
Wayne Dyer is one of my favorites also, Ann — and always will be! 🙂
In order to be in that zone you need to be in a complete relaxed state of mind. It’s interesting.
