View Full Version : The Sliding Doors between You and What You Want...

If you want something REALLY badly, the way to get it, is to take your focus off it for a while, and then it will come to you -Automatically.

I know that sounds wonky - and the opposite to what we think we need to do, but here's why I'm suggesting it: When we desperately want something, we tend to grab onto it and not want to let go, no matter what. This can actually block whatever it is we're holding on to - because the governing underlying vibration in this case, is Fear :eek: . Fear of losing whatever it is we're holding on to. And it is our Vibration that creates and attracts. Fear blocks and pushes away that to which we are attaching the fear - in this case, whatever it is we're scared of losing.

Everything (EVERYTHING!) you want is waiting for you just the other side of a pair of sliding doors. And it's just waiting for those doors to slide open so that it can be allowed in.

It is ONLY our vibration that creates and attracts. And low vibrations - like fear, longing, wishing, worry etc - keep those doors tightly shut. High vibrations, like love, trust and joy, slide the doors open.

As we feel these high vibrations, the doors start sliding open, and if we continue with the high vibrations, the doors continue to slide open, and then become open wide enough to start letting in the stuff we want that's waiting just there. When our vibration changes to low, the doors start to slide closed again, so the opening isn't wide enough for the stuff to start coming into our life.

Now, the important thing to know is that the stuff we want is ALWAYS just there - just the other side of those doors. It doesn't pass by, it doesn't go away. It stays right there, waiting for the doors to open wide enough for it to come through - because it is magnetically held there simply by the fact that we want it! So as soon as we raise our vibrations again, and those doors start sliding open again, it's still there waiting.

By taking your focus off the thing you've been hanging on to trying really hard to manifest, and by focusing only on every expression of love from yourself, to yourself (see The Magic Pill (http://www.info4you.biz/The_Magic_Pill.htm)), you will start opening those doors, and the more you do this, the more the doors will open, and once the opening is wide enough, the stuff you want will Automatically come through it, and into your life!

The "big" you (higher self/expanded self/ God/ the Universe) already knows what you want - from the instant you wanted it (and possibly even before you knew you wanted it ;) ) So it is already there - just the other side of those doors. All you have to do is allow the doors to open with your vibration :thumbsup:

So would "desire" be a high or low vibration ? :confused:

My understanding .... desire with positivity ... that is ... not feeling desperate and clingy about it ...and being convinced that you are certaining absolutely happy without it ... that is what creates the good vibrations ... isnt it ?? :)

I've attached a little pdf with a cute meaningful useful diagram ... Hope you like it ..:dance:

Much Love, Lama :)

No pun intended.

I have watched THE SECRET and from my understanding it's 99% correct, if not a 100%

Try to understand LAO, really understand it well

If a system is working for you stick with it, why bother to change it? If ain't broke,why fix it?

LAMA explained it well:thumbsup:

Thanks for that Lama :thumbsup:

I hadn't seen it before, and it's very good :)

I do know that a lot of what I say is just alternative ways of saying what may be said elsewhere by someone else :)

When something comes to me (usually when I'm trying to answer a question from someone, that I don't know the answer to ;) ) and it comes in an analogy I hadn't thought of or heard before, it feels like it may help someone to understand it, that didn't understand it when it was explained in a different way. Don't know if that makes sense?

My understanding is that, the way "life" in physical consciousness works - including conscious use of the LOA - is indescribable in language. I don't think it's possible, using language, to describe it completely accurately, so it's open to many analogies and interpretations, which I believe will resonate with different people. And the search through self-help tools, books, courses, theories, practices and other education, is simply a case of searching for the explanation/ analogy/ description that clicks with an individual's conscious mind - that makes sense to them.

For example, for some people, hearing that others are a reflection of themselves, and about false beliefs - it may not make sense - they may not be able to grasp that concept because their reasoning doesn't encompase that way of thinking.

But, the analogy of growing up in a Hall of Mirrors, may click with them - when it's explained that the mirrors in the Hall of Mirrors are the false reflections - the image of themselves they're given by significant people from childhood etc. All the distortions.

Then they step outside, and see "perfect" people - and they feel inferior, and "Why can't I be like them!"
And they don't realise that those are the real mirrors! They ARE like them! They just don't know it because they've grown up in the Hall of Mirrors.

There are more ways in which others are a reflection of ourselves of course, I'm just mentioning one ;)

Another example is: The power that everything is a part of can be described as The Universe, a Genie, the God of each religion, our Higher Selves, Love, a "Ball of Energy" (my 11 year old son's interpretation ;) ), All that Is, the Mother Ship..... etc. and I believe it's all true. There is no language to describe it exactly, and, in our current physical consciousness, we don't have the capacity to process the concept of what Really is, so we come as close as we each can within physical understanding. Aaron's Synchronicity diagram is one that describes it in yet another way - that will make more sense to certain people, and they'll be able to grasp a closer understanding for themselves through that.

Ooh I'm sorry - I've been rattling on :rolleyes: lol
To finish to the point then ;) .... although I hadn't read that pdf before (but very glad I have now - thanks Lama :thumbsup: ) I have heard variations on what it says, and what I've written. The analogy of the Sliding Doors came to me while I was trying to explain to someone that something they desperately wanted, was not going to go away if they took their focus off it for a while and relaxed. And the Sliding Doors popped into my mind, and made sense :D

So would "desire" be a high or low vibration ? :confused:

Hi Tezzaa

I'd like to add to what Lama said....

It depends on how it feels. Remember, the way you feel tells you how you're vibrating, and it's only the vibration that is creating and attracting. It also depends on your interpretation of "desire". My own interpretation involves a feeling of not currently having it, so I wouldn't choose to stay in that state. I prefer the feeling of knowing that what I want is already being taken care of behind the scenes.

I wanted to (desired to) go to Vegas for the PATHS conference. I didn't know how I'd get there as I didn't have the money at the time (and I live in the UK, so, expensive airfares, or long swim ;)). I also wanted to take my partner and my son with me. Once I knew I wanted that, I no longer "desired" it. I decided it was going to happen, and then I handed it over to the "big" me/Universe/God/My Subconscious, and whenever I thought of it, I reminded myself "Oh, yes, it's already being taken care of."

Like when you book tickets to a concert - you then know that you're going. When you think of the concert, you think "Ah yes, the tickets are already booked." You'll feel excited and look forward to it, but there'll be no doubt that you're going. So you no longer "desire" to go to the concert, you KNOW you're going! ;)

Hope that helps :)

Love and Light and Magic and Concert Tickets ;) xxx

Edit: A closer analogy: it's like when you've asked your best friend to book the tickets for the concert. When you think of the concert, you'll remember that your friend is booking the tickets, so you don't need to do anything, and you don't need to worry because you trust your friend to book them (she's looking forward to it too lol). So you'll be excited, and looking forward to it, and you KNOW you're going. Hope that makes more sense : )

... ooh ooh, wait....even closer and more accurate: your best friend knows the band .... no ... is the band's manager, and is getting you free tickets!! THAT's, I think the closest analogy :D Seriously. Because you can't get better connections than your Subconscious/God/The Universe has! It really is like knowing the Manager of the band - and HE is arranging the tickets. So there's no doubt you'll get in!! And hey, you'll probably get a back-stage pass as a bonus!! So, whatever your desire is - think of it in this way. You KNOW it's being taken care of - just like the concert tickets. xxxx

oh my God illusions ... you're absolutely GREAT ... :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I just LOVE the way you pass info through to us .... your symbolic scenarios are just AMMMAZING .... i fell in love with the sliding doors scenario .. it just makes it soooo clear and it makes you relaxed and more confident that nothing is going no where ... as this is usually the greatest "fear" if u can call it when someone is desiring something ... they fear losing the "opportunity" .. as they used to teach us LOL about opportunities and how they only come once in ur life !!!!!! ...

i can tell you the moment i read your sliding doors concept something changed inside me .. and i felt great and i started perceiving things differently ... isnt it such an amazing forum .. every time you think you've gotten hold of the keys and now you know it all and you know how to think and how to drive ur life... you read some little hint that suddenly lightens u up from inside even more ..and more and more ...

and now your "tickets" scenario is adding up to the fun .... its GREAT its AWESOME ... http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/smilie/liebe/g106.gif

I agree with Kevin - what a great thread! :thumbsup:

About the PDF, #4 ("be happy with where you are now") really blew my mind, because I suddenly realised how I've been pushing happiness away all these years by refusing to accept my present state. It's only since I've been on PATHS (specifically, the Mood Elevation module) that I've started to become genuinely happy and contented with my everyday life - and paradoxically, the wonderful things that I've always wanted are starting to show up as a result. Up till now I've been pushing away all the good things by my fear and worry that I'll never get them, just as Illusions says.

Again, what a great thread! Thanks so much, Illusions and Lama! :notworthy:

About three years ago I was wandering around a flea market one day when I saw an unusual stuffed toy that I just had to have. (I'm a kid at heart, I collect stuffed toys. I even sleep with them!) Unfortunately I didn't have enough cash on me to buy it, and the mean owner refused to be bargained down, so I shrugged and gave up. I wasn't happy. :(

That was three years ago. I often thought about that particular toy over three years, but my feelings changed gradually from rancour, to resignation, and finally to a kind of happy nostalgia - yes, for a toy that I'd never even owned in the first place. I thought of it most recently yesterday, with a sense of joy.

Today, my boss suddenly walked into my classroom holding that toy in her arms and handed it to me, saying casually, "one of the mothers wants you to have this." It is the exact same toy of the flea market, only it is lovely and new and not old and tatty.

To say I was gobsmacked is putting it mildly. I mean really, what are the chances? :)

Stuff like this is happening to me all the time these days.

I love these analogies and I totally "get" them, well at least as much as I can anyway, but I haven't figured out how to do this with weight loss. If I take my focus off it then I tend to view that as a free-for-all and do (eat! :thumbsup:) whatever I want and don't exercise, all the while *supposedly* thinking to myself that I'm not focusing on my weight (though truth be known, how can I not be as my clothes are getting tigher!). Healthy food and exercise just aren't something I, at least so far in my life, do "in-joy"! :rofl:

However, if I "focus" on it and watch what I eat, etc., as I've done in the past with success, that' s a no-no as per LOA though, right? Ahhh, I just don't get this part of it. :confused: If I continue to "not focus" I'm going to have to go buy a new wardrobe, yet if I focus I'm not relaxing and letting it in easily! This is all the while on the Ultimate Body module too, and it having been tweaked (and I tried the Shed Pounds one too for a couple of months).

Anyone care to enlighten me?? :D

KimI'm not an expert as this and I'm sure others will chime in, but I would say to focus on your 'target' and the targets (of the reasons) why you want to lose weight. Keep those in mind/printed around the house to remind you.

As lack of self-esteem at some level can play a part then constantly reminding oneself of what is in the magic pill book will help towards alleviating the feeling of lack.

Re-reading Illusions first post, focus on everything you love about your target (growing towards) rather than fear (running away from) of your current position.

With love and gratitude

Thanks, Alan. That's a really good point that I'd not considered, being so busy obsessing about the "how" when I know that I need to let that go at least a little bit. It's just so tricky when you have to choose part of "how" all the time with things like food choices, and at the same time let that part go...

I'll try to keep my focus on the reasons though, as you mentioned, rather than the actual physical result.

Funny you mentioned the Magic Pill book - I just printed it out yesterday to re-read it! Thanks for the reminder!

Best wishes to you!

Another technique is to fake it until it's real :)

So if you imagine yourself in the position of where you want to be and how you want to react when you are there, then keep practising those things now (or resolve the reasons why you can't practise them) and eventually you will be that person.

Oh Rin, What FUN!!!!!!

How CLEVER of you!!!!!!! I'm really thrilled about that - what a Fabulous example - thanks SO much for sharing it with us!!!
It would be Great if you could post a picture of your creation :)

Lama, thank you so much for the sweet feedback :hearts: I'm THRILLED to know my posts help :D

Kim, you've had some great answers from the Fabulous Firehorse already, and I'd like to add to them....

As well as keeping your focus on the end result, find something that takes your breath away. Find something that you feel so passionate about, that you could spend all day on it. Something that raises your heartbeat just thinking about it.

Then dedicate some time each day (or at least each week) to it.

Eating unhealthily is usually a substitute for something else, but it's often really difficult to figure out what that something else is. So a quicker way to solve it, is to find the thing that makes you feel so excited you could burst (and I believe there is such a thing for everyone, it's just that not everyone has allowed themselves to find it yet).

So, focusing on that particular thing, recognising all the expressions of love from yourself, to yourself, and focusing on the end result.

The way to focus on the end result without being distracted by your current weight is: Make the decision to not look in a full length mirror or weigh yourself for at least a week - try and go for as long as you can, but at least a week. Wear only clothes you know fit comfortably.

Whenever you think of yourself, see yourself as your ideal weight. Design, in your mind, an outfit that you think would look Fabulous on you at your ideal weight - include as much detail as possible, along with the colour.

Every time you think of your weight, see yourself in that outfit, at your ideal weight, in conversation with a loved one. And then remind yourself the work is all being done behind the scenes. You can't see what the Ultimate Body module is doing in your brain and in your subconscious mind. You can't see the chemical processes that are going on in your body. You can't see your metabolism speeding up, and you can't see the fat being broken down within your body.

You will only be able to see the physical results once all of that has happend. But, like when a house is being built, you won't see even the begining of results until the foundation work is complete. And that is what takes the longest time and most of the work. You won't even see one brick before the foundations are done. It doesn't mean nothing's happening.

And, what's more, if you keep interrupting the workmen because you can't see anything, and keep changing their tools, the plans, the site, etc, you keep delaying the work they are doing. So your house takes even looonger.

So, trust. KNOW it's going on behind the scenes.

As far as food goes. If you're passionately dedicating yourself to something that excites you so much you can hardly bare it, you're less likely to snack so much.

Different things work for different people, but here are some ideas that I've found work: The main thing that decides whether you're going to eat something or not, is not the taste, the availability, or the calories - it's your state of mind.

The most important thing, I believe, is to Not Scold yourself or deny yourself anything. That is mentally beating yourself up. I believe that if you lived on celery and bean sprouts, but kept beating yourself up for wanting chocolate cake and pizza, you could still not loose weight. Because it's your vibration that is creating, not the food.

I have started simply thinking twice before I eat something. And if, after thinking "Do I really want this?" and imagining not having it, If after that I still want it, then I have it - and I enjoy it. If I feel fear or worry about the weight it might add, I remind myself that it's not about what I'm eating, but about how I'm vibrating, and feeeeeeling.

My job is only to feeeeeel good. And if eating a chocolate right now feels good, then I know that my body is ready to digest it and use it and it will be absolutely fine. If it feeeels destructive, then I know that, if I continue to feel that way, whether I eat that chocolate or not I'm going to add those calories to my hips!!

I focus on healthy food that I enjoy - fruits that I like, and especially proteans, since I learned about the amino acids and our brains ;) But I always have chocolate, crisps (potato chips) and cookies in the house because I've found that if I have them available, I don't want them as much. I can say to myself "I'll have one later" and later often never comes ;)

Now, that works for me, of course we're all different, but it's good to consider that we often use food as a way of punishing ourselves. So by not having it available, we sometimes feel rebellious and want it more. And, considering it's the vibration that is doing the creating, not the food, whether the food is in the house or not, if the focus is on those chips we won't allow ourselves to have, then I believe those callories are joining us anyway! ;)

I also tried to foooooorce myself to go jogging and do excercise. And I haaaated it.
Then..... I'd been on the Shed Pounds module and Ultimate Body module for, I think, about two months, and I woke one morning with an Unbelievable urge to join a gym. Also, I manifested Karate classes - which I love.

Something I'd forgotten about for the first couple of months on those modules is that they say you must so some excercise while you're on them - I think they say even just 15 minutes walk a day. Because of the extra energy. I would say find something that you find fun - 10 pin bowling, dancing, clubbing, roller blading, martial arts, or whatever you find fun - and not only will you feel fabulous, you'll also not even notice you're excercising.

On the few occassions I managed to force myself out the door, a 15 minute jog felt like a three day marathon to me. An hour and a half strenuous Karate class feels like bliss ;)

So the main points: (in my opinion - bearing in mind I'm not a doctor or nutritionist, so Trust your own judgement - these are just points of my own belief to consider - and I believe that what a person believes is true for them ;) )

* Your weight is not created by the food you eat. Just like everything else in physical consciousness, it is created your vibration. (How you feel)

* Decide to not look in a full-length mirror or weigh yourself for as long as you can manage (at least a week) I have decided to do neither of these two things until I notice my clothing is loose.

* For this period of time, only wear things that fit comfortably.

* Create a mental picture of you wearing your designer outfit, at your ideal weight and recall that to mind whenever you feel doubt or fear or worry, or just for fun ;) And remind yourself, it's being taken care of - the work is going on behind the scenes.

* Find something that takes your breath away, that makes you feel more excited than anything else. And throw yourself into it. Some possibilities for many people are: writing, singing, dancing, art, a good cause, a project to help others, working with children, sculpture, researching a fascinating subject, gardening, golf, matchstick villages, macrame, model painting, computer role-play and/or strategy games, creating something you feel passionate about.

* When you do eat something "fattening" remember to just take note of how you feeeeel. It's your vibration (indicated by how you feel) that is determining whether you'll put on the weight - whether you eat that particular food or not.

* Be as WONDERFUL to yourself as you possibly can. Treat yourself like someone you've just started a relationship with, and do all sorts of fabulous things for yourself.

* Re-read The Magic Pill, and The Second Dose, and adopt that way of thinking, added to the mix of the suggestions above.

I hope this helps. Do keep us updated on how you're doing, and of course, post any more questions here too. :hearts:
