T'here is a tool in Access Consciousness, it's the Access Mantra: "All of life comes to me with ease, joy and glory" (Glory= exhuberant expression and abundance of life)... when I first heard it, it bugged me. I thought it sounded very Polly Anna-ish. I had done affirmations and that never worked for me (it always brought up the opposite of what I was affirming.) And below the surface unconsciously (I discovered years later) I didn't actually believe life could be easy!
But I used it anyway... I was miserable enough at the time to try anything to change that. (I figured I could just do it in secret. hehe... No one had to know!)....And it still worked! Things changed and got easier in uncanny ways.
See here's the deal with this tool. First: it's not an affirmation. It's a mantra. An affirmation is affirming only good, only good, only good. It requires the judgment getting something right. It's deciding what will work for you, and trying to shut out everything else. It is deciding what you will receive and what you won't.
Consciousness includes everything and judges nothing. Consciousness and awareness, from my point of view, give one the ability to see everything for what it is, there is no shutting out of what you don't wish to know only to get smacked upside the head with it later... and this mantra includes everything. (ALL of life. That's the good, the bad and the uggly- comes to me with ease joy and glory.) Essentially what it's saying is everything, even the crap that comes your way can be handled with ease.
It's recommended use... say it 10 times in the morning and 10 times in the evening and it begins to change the energy of how your life shows up. I have found this to be true. Even though I thought that using this tool probably wouldn't work because it would be too simple! ;-) I mean, nothing is really that easy right?
Here's an example: I went out climbing recently. We drove an hour and 1/2 to get to the canyon. Hiked 25 minutes up hill to get to the area we were going to climb at. We sat down and began pulling out our climbing gear except, I as I discovered, I had none. I had left behind all climbing essentials! My climbing shoes, harness and chalk bag are all at home. Ordinarily this could have made for a long day of not much climbing and a bit of a bad mood, but what occurred was actual ease! We were a party of 3 so I was able to tag team a harness with my boyfriend. It fit well and felt secure enough to lead climb in. (I thought it might be too big!) And as luck would have it we were climbing with a friend who has very small feet! I wear a 6 and 1/2 women's street shoe. My feet are small even for women. Our friend, it turns out, has feet that are an anomaly for a man, and his shoes fit me perfectly! (If you don't know, climbers wear tight forming fitting shoes to climb in. If your shoes don't fit right you'll have a very hard time climbing. This sport is plenty challenging by itself never mind not being able to trust your feet to stick!)
When I first discovered my error... I thought I was going to have a long day watching my friends climb, at best top roping in a sloppy harness and sneakers- It would have been challenging and probably frustrating, and not so very fulfilling for me. (And yes, of course, I would have made the best of it... and it still would have been subpar.) It turned out to be fun! I got to climb everything I wanted to climb and it was a beautiful fun filled day.
And then it dawned on me I had been using this mantra regularly as of late. What could have been a drama-fest, and left me feeling rather bummed out was not a problem at all.
How does it get any better than that?
So what ever you do, don't try it.... life might be too easy and you don't want that!
