Over the past few months, I’ve fluctuated from believing that I have to accept my destiny to believing that I can create my own destiny. The word ‘surrender’ has appeared recurrently in my research and I think the strikes a balance between the 2 beliefs: letting go of control in order to let things happen and, in the meantime, being ready for opportunities to change. In a weird way, this paradox, even if they seem totally different, they can co-exist and it makes total sense to me.
I’ve been guided to discovering very interesting techniques of self-mastery. My latest discovery has been a fascinating technique for attracting what you want in your life by Deepak Chopra. The technique is making your Soul Profile.
Here is the Soul Profile: Answer these questions with 3 or 4 words or phrases:
- What makes me happy?
- What is the meaning and purpose of my life?
- What is the contribution that I want to make to the world?
- What’s my story?
- Who am I really?
- What am I grateful for?
- Who are my heroes and heroines in history, mythology and religion?
- What do I expect of others in a good relationship?
- What do I offer others in a good relationship?
- What are my strengths, talents and skills?
- What are the things that I value most in my personal life?
- What are the things that I value most in others?
- What do I truly want?
- What am I willing to offer in return?
He says that you need to answer the questions and meditate. This meditation will take you to transcend thoughts and move to a state of pure consciousness. When you know yourself better and you know who you are; when you know what you are looking for and meditate on it, you are more likely to attract that.
The experience of repeated visualisation of what you desire tricks the subconscious into believing that you already have it. Therefore, your mind will find ways to guide you to what you desire and open doors.
The trick lies in the repetition of the visualisation over an extended period of time (90 days) which is the difficult part for us who are hard wired to do what we always do and adding something different to our routine takes a lot of self-discipline and self-mastery. But that’s how true rewards happen.
