LOVE (2007)

I have written about love in several links on my website, www.davidhakim.com  .  In this link I will attempt to go deeper into my feelings.  It is to become more aware of the abundance I receive from God and being able to share it with others.

 

“Trust the Lord with your heart, for He will make your path straight.”

 

I received the above message from spirit on Sunday morning, October 21, 2007.  It sets forth my desire to immerse my spirit in the love of God, not for the sake of material reward, which is good, but for spiritual reward, of feeling love and joy in my heart and sharing it with others, which is better.

 

When I wrote “Fairness,” I was not as versed in the “Law of Attraction” or the “Power of Self-Actualization” (my summarization of “The Secret”) as I am now.  I attempted to show that I had little choice in my life.  Of course, much of my life experiences occurred because of my choice to incarnate the way I did.  Now I realize that a little meditation on the law of abundance and using the power of actualization can make my life more positive.

 

What brings about abundance from God is self-actualization.  It has already been mentioned in this website under the link, “Enjoy.”  Spirit is here to assist you and me in getting a feeling for what we want and bring it into actualization by working out the steps necessary to obtain and labor to achieve it. 

 

Sometimes I do not have an idea of what I want.  However, if I meditate and get into my true feelings, of wanting to be of service, in time spirit will assist me with the ideas necessary to move toward my goals of being more abundant not only in the material but also in the spiritual.

 

In Thomas Merton’s The Seven Storey Mountain [A Harvest Book, Harcourt Brace and Company, San Diego, New York, London, 1948], 9) he writes about his brother, John Paul, who was so happy as a child because of the songs played by his angels that he entranced his whole family by his state of consciousness.  I do not know how long my angels have sung to me, but it seems forever.  Others have commented about the effect my humming has upon them.  However, sometimes I do not hear my angels singing to me.  It usually happens when I am concentrating on writing as I am now.  Yet, I know I am doing the work of spirit by my writing, and I have learned to patiently await the songs to return.  Usually the songs begin again by my request after my guides have shared their wisdom with me.

 

Many times I have asked for mercy from the Almighty, especially when things do not go immediately my way.  However, the Almighty just allows the existence of what is by my own mindset (Many times Francisco Coll summarized this by saying, “I am that I am”).  I am beginning to more fully realize that I am part of God and that thinking positively of myself and sharing of my abundance with myself is good.  Asking for mercy from the Almighty is a habit I am now attempting to break, because I create negativity based upon my own mindset.  Of course, my mindset is influenced by the negativity of others.  However, I can usually change my mindset to the positive by realizing the negativity is not mine and then finding something to be grateful about.

 

Since I have substantially healed myself from a near disastrous childhood and have learned to forgive, I am more able to use the power of positive thinking and apply the lessons of “The Secret.”  Now, instead of mentally chastising my parents for raising me the way they did, I thank them.

 

Sometimes I wear my Peace Community Church shirt which says “The Christ in you is the good, kind, loving, caring, sharing part of you!”  As an instrument of God, who has given me abundance, I determine with the assistance of spirit the correct proportion to share with others.  I am able to derive pleasure and happiness by my ability to share and rejoice in the happiness of others.

 

Another technique for enhancing my life is the following from an email I received recently:

THE ALOHA SPIRIT

You may copy, share and post this document as often as you wish on condition that it not be sold.

The Aloha Spirit is a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous. However, it also refers to a powerful way to resolve any problem, accomplish any goal, and to achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.

In the Hawaiian language, aloha stands for much more than just "hello" or "goodbye" or "love." Its deeper meaning is "the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the present (alo)."

As you share this energy you become attuned to the Universal Power that the Hawaiians call mana. And the loving use of this incredible Power is the secret for attaining true health, happiness, prosperity and success.

The way to tune into this Power and have it work for you is so simple that you might be tempted to pass it off as being too easy to be true. Please don't let yourself be fooled by appearances. Take the time to try it out.

This is the most powerful technique in the world, and although it is extremely simple it may not prove easy, because you must remember to do it and you have to do it a lot. It is a secret which has been given to humanity over and over again, and here it is once more in another form. The secret is this:

Bless everyone and everything that represents what you want!

That's all there is to it. Anything that simple, however, does need some explanation.

To bless something means to give recognition or emphasis to a positive quality, characteristic or condition, with the intent that what is recognized or emphasized will increase, endure or come into being.

Blessing is effective in changing your life or getting what you want for three reasons: First of all, the positive focus of your mind stirs up the positive, creative force of the Power of the Universe. Secondly, it moves your own energy outward, allowing more of the Power to come through you. Thirdly, when you bless for the benefit of others instead of directly for yourself, you tend to bypass any subconscious fears about what you want for yourself, and also the very focus on the blessing acts to increase the same good in your life. What is so beautiful about this process is that the blessing you do for others helps them as well as you.

Blessing may be done with imagery or touch, but the most usual and easy way to do it is with words. The main kinds of verbal blessing are:

Admiration - This is the giving of compliments or praise to something good that you notice. E.g., "What a beautiful sunset; I like that flower; you're such a wonderful person."

Affirmation - This is a specific statement of blessing for increase or endurance. E.g., "I bless the beauty of this tree; blessed be the health of your body."

Appreciation - This is an expression of gratitude that something good exists or has happened. E.g., "Thank you for helping me; I give thanks to the rain for nourishing the land."

Anticipation - This is blessing for the future. E.g., "We're going to have a great picnic; I bless your increased income; Thank you for my perfect mate; I wish you a happy journey; May the wind be always at your back."

In order to gain the most benefit from blessing, you will have to give up or cut way down on the one thing that negates it: cursing. This doesn't mean swearing or saying "bad" words. It refers to the opposite of blessing, namely criticizing instead of admiring; doubting instead of affirming; blaming instead of appreciating; and worrying instead of anticipating with trust. Whenever any of these are done they tend to cancel out some of the effects of blessing. So the more you curse the harder it will be and the longer it will take to get the good from a blessing. On the other hand, the more you bless the less harm any cursing will do.

Here, then, are some ideas for blessing various needs and desires. Apply them as often as you like, as much as you want.

Health - Bless healthy people, animals, and even plants; everything which is well made or well constructed; and everything that expresses abundant energy.

Happiness - Bless all that is good, or the good that is in all people and all things; all the signs of happiness that you see, hear or feel in people or animals; and all potentials for happiness that you notice around you.

Prosperity - Bless all the signs of prosperity in your environment, including everything that money helped to make or do; all the money that you have in any form; and all the money that circulates in the world.

Success - Bless all signs of achievement and completion (such as buildings, bridges, and sports events); all arrivals at destinations (of ships, planes, trains, cars and people); all signs of forward movement or persistence; and all signs of enjoyment or fun.

Confidence - Bless all signs of confidence in people and animals; all signs of strength in people, animals and objects (including steel and concrete); all signs of stability (like mountains and tall trees); and all signs of purposeful power (including big machines, power lines).

Love and Friendship - Bless all signs of caring and nurturing, compassion and support; all harmonious relationships in nature and architecture; everything that is connected to or gently touching something else; all signs of cooperation, as in games or work; and all signs of laughter and fun.

Inner Peace - Bless all signs of quietness, calmness, tranquility, and serenity (such as quiet water or still air); all distant views (horizons, stars, the moon); all signs of beauty of sight, sound or touch; clear colors and shapes; the details of natural or made objects.

Spiritual Growth - Bless all signs of growth, development and change in Nature; the transitions of dawn and twilight; the movement of sun, moon, planets and stars; the flight of birds in the sky; and the movement of wind and sea.

The previous ideas are for guidance if you are not used to blessing, but don't be limited by them. Remember that any quality, characteristic or condition can be blessed (e.g., you can bless slender poles and slim animals to encourage weight loss), whether it has existed, presently exists, or exists so far in your imagination alone.

Personally I have used the power of blessing to heal my body, increase my income, develop many skills, create a deeply loving relationship with my wife and children, and to establish a worldwide network of peacemakers working with the aloha spirit. It's because it has worked so well for me that I want to share it with you. Please share it with as many others as you can.

How to Enhance Your Power to Bless

There is a technique practiced in Hawaii which enhances your power to bless by increasing your personal energy. It is a simple way of breathing that is also used for grounding, centering, meditation and healing. It requires no special place or posture, and may be done while moving or still, busy or resting, with eyes open or closed. In Hawaiian the technique is called pikopiko because piko means both the crown of the head and the navel.

The Technique
1. Become aware of your natural breathing (it might change on its own just because of your awareness, but that's okay).

2. Locate the crown of your head and your navel by awareness and/or touch.

3. Now, as you inhale put your attention on the crown of your head; and as you exhale put your attention on your navel. Keep breathing this way for as long as you like.

4. When you feel relaxed, centered, and/or energized, begin imagining that you are surrounded with an invisible cloud of light or an electro-magnetic field, and that your breathing increases the energy of this cloud or field.

5. As you bless, imagine that the object of your blessing is surrounded with some of the same energy that surrounds you.
