How To Make Manifestation Work For You

Most talk about manifestation like it’s this esoteric, voodoo kind of thing. But really, you, me and everyone else is manifesting all the time. Unfortunately, very few of us are consciously manifesting what it is that lives our hearts.

Are you manifesting what you truly desire that serves you, your family, and community? Most aren’t, and it is because they’re not doing it with all of their being.

The world is ready for another renaissance – a time when more and more of us become aware of our abilities through the connection to Source energy and begin manifesting consciously. Begin manifesting with heart.

We are ready for a change. So many on this planet are unhappy – we don’t have to look far to see the suffering and disconnect of the masses. When we pay attention to where we are, we get motivated. We are ready.

The last major renaissance we experienced was in the 1960’s. Many people had experiences of higher consciousness (yes, some may have been drug induced). But most didn’t stabilize this new level of awareness because they didn’t do the necessary work. They didn’t handle the shadow side of things.

So, what happened with the 60’s renaissance? Many of these “new thought” leaders fell back into the way they were living before. As they didn’t have a solid foundation to manifest from, they fell back into the trap of familiarity and complacency. They fell back asleep and life continued to be a struggle.

What can we learn from their experience? If life is a struggle, we may feel let down – let down by other people, the Creator, or even by life itself. Over time, this can lead to disconnect and even emotional and physical pain. Many people think it’s normal to live this way. That ‘this is as good as it gets’.

The good news is that you can change your experience and become more conscious in your manifestation practice. Doing so requires that you work in “the invisible realm” of your innermost being to resolve the physics behind what’s creating what you don’t want and blocking what you do want to create.

In general, you will need to resolve these common blocks:

  1. You don’t trust what you feel. 

    Developing a trust in your own heart’s experience is critical to consciously manifesting. This is the opposite of “being in your head”.

    By not trusting your feelings, your experiences can’t truly serve you. If, however, you allow your experiences to serve you through being honest about where you are, you’ll receive the deeper meaning of that experience.

    And when you do that, you can shift either into releasing what you don’t want or into having what you do want that previously seemed out of your reach.

    Developing an ability to surrender to “what is” is critical to trusting your heart (regardless of what your mind is telling you) and consciously manifesting.

  2. You hold limiting beliefs – consciously or unconsciously. 

    Most of the time, momentum from the past shows up as a belief that you have about life. 

    It’s blind and/or unconscious adherence to these beliefs, that may have been passed down from generation to generation in your family, that can block your ability to manifest consciously.

    These beliefs can pull you back into the trap of familiarity and complacency. Their momentum is difficult to overcome until you become aware of them.

These blocks may seem incredibly obvious and simplistic at first, but becoming aware of them in your own life requires diligence, a deep desire to shift from the old way to a life of ease, and grace

Developing a spiritual practice that resolves your blocks is critical for conscious manifestation. And it’s by releasing past tethers (karma) and any limiting beliefs that you can have whatever it is that lives in your heart.

Doing this work will open your life to more possibility. It will shift your momentum to create a foundation of a true and permanent renaissance that ushers the entire planet to a higher level of consciousness.

The Christmas Card Experience by John Newton

John Newton in the Christmas Card

The Hallmark Channel loves Christmas movies and ‘The Christmas Card’ is no exception. Released nine years ago while I was still in the acting world, it was their highest rated program ever. I am grateful to have been a part of something that has touched so many. (They are airing it more than 15 times this 2017 season!)

The Christmas Card Experience for All of Us

Every holiday, I receive many store bought cards with no personal message – some from family; some from friends. It puzzles me that anyone would take the time, money and energy to send these. Would you rather have a TV dinner, or a home-cooked meal?

And here in lies the heart of the film: Faith sends a ‘personal’ greeting to an active duty soldier (me as Cody) and it makes all the difference in their lives. After a traumatic experience in battle sends Cody into a soul-searching journey, he goes on leave seeking the sender of the card that meant so much to him.

You Can Make a Difference

It’s easy to lose sight of what the holy-days represent. Ho ho how the holiday music and shopping machine seems to greet us earlier and earlier each year. To me, The Christmas Card story reflects that simple gestures from the heart can have a profound effect beyond what we can fathom. In a world where most of humanity is suffering to various degrees, we have the ability to rise above this condition. This occurs when we are willing to step out of self-serving behavior and into family and community first.

Take Time for Yourself

The irony of this is that we are only truly able to put other’s needs first, when we have handled our own. This is like putting our oxygen mask on first before we help others on the plane.

So much of our past experiences go unresolved only to keep affecting our current life conditions. The Ancestral Clearing work that I offer allows you to make peace with the past by connecting with the higher power of your understanding and come from the heart. Of the five techniques I use in my practice, one rules supreme:  Forgiveness.

Miracles Anyone?

Before you say, “I know what forgiveness is…”, take a moment to see for yourself.  What makes this specific practice so helpful for releasing old hurt and limiting beliefs is that it includes humility and gratitude. Think of it as a recipe. Whatever your faith is, this work can support you on your journey. You can create a life worth living not just for yourself, but for everyone you share this planet with.

How to Turn Conflict Into Love

Most of us have experienced the stress of a relationship gone sour. We want things with our partner to be easy, only to find the opposite. How about having intense passion and excitement in your intimate relationships without the drama? Turning conflict into love…

In order to move beyond our patterns of conflict, we need to see what’s going on beneath the surface. Most people focus on the effects in their life, instead of what is leading to the effect. Addressing the cause and effect aspect of things is the only true way to move forward in relationships (and life).

You can have your cake and eat it too…

We carry unresolved experiences from the past. They are held within our body and affect our behaviors. If you want to move beyond the quarreling, you will need to resolve these old hurts. They can span from past relationships, our childhood, or even further back into your family lineage. If you don’t resolve these old wounds, you tend to get more of the same effects in our life. It’s simple physics.

Turning conflict into love…

You must clear what is driving you to repeat painful patterns. An example could be when a life partner questions a recent purchase you’ve made, it may trigger an old memory of parents fighting over money. Because that early version of you remembers the old experience, you may react with a stronger ‘fight or flight’ response than is appropriate. This usually escalates as both partners have issues being triggered. You may even feel judged, blamed or misunderstood for what’s coming up in your partner. They may feel the same from you.

We’re never upset for the reason we think.

Healing the past hurts we carry is the key to moving forward.  The beauty of all relationships is that they can serve our evolution. They often show us those parts inside us that we need to heal. In other words, they can reveal what we carry from the past. When we observe what we feel when challenges arise in relationship, we have access to resolving them. We let our destructive reactions go and automatically turn conflict into love.

A simple recipe for life.

One of the five pillars of my practice is forgiveness. This kind of forgiveness isn’t just about saying you’re sorry. This is a powerful tool to resolve what no longer serves us. This simple recipe involves forgiveness coupled with humility and gratitude. Here is one of my YouTube videos “The True Meaning of Forgiveness”  

With clarity now in your heart, you can match the frequency of a partner that loves and respects you. You are free to experience deeper levels of love and respect. This is a sacred partnership!

How Past Experiences From Your Ancestors Affect You Today

Have you ever wondered how past expereinces from your ancestors affect you today? Do you remember your first car? Mine was a hand-me-down that had been in the family for quite a while. She wasn’t pretty and had some issues, but she usually got me where I needed to go. Like my first car, the physical body I was born into came from my family, too. Just like yours. How does this most important of all hand-me-downs work for you? Does it have some issues?

Healing past experiences may be key to moving forward.

It is known in science that we carry stress and trauma from the past. It may be from this life we’ve lived, or it may be from our family — going back many generations. We don’t carry all the past experiences from our lineage, but it doesn’t take much to throw the system off. If we want to have the best life experience, it may serve us to do some repairs on our “vehicle” in life.

We need to pay attention to where we actually are if we want to heal the past. If our car isn’t running well, it may be best to pull over and see what the issue is – to look under the hood. If the truth sets us free, then we need to see what that truth is.

One problem we have is that most people don’t listen to their bodies. If something inside doesn’t feel good, they don’t pay attention to what it’s really about. If we want a new experience in life, then we have to do things differently. It’s just plain and simple physics. Working with many chronic pain patients over the years, I’ve seen that unresolved stress, resentment, grief and even regret tend to come back in different forms.

History tends to repeat itself.

The actors in our play may change, but the frequency of it feels the same. So let’s rewrite our story. Let’s clear the charge to past experiences so they don’t have power over us. Forgiveness is the key keeping this whole process as simple as possible.

True Forgiveness means to ‘let go’ or ‘offer up’. This work is not about reliving the old hurts. It is about accessing the higher power of our understanding with humility and gratitude. It’s about asking the Creator for help in letting go of what doesn’t serve us. When we clear the old burdens, stress, karma and negative imprints that aren’t serving us, we start to notice more peace.

When we clear the charge to past experiences, we start to notice more free will available to us. It doesn’t matter what has come before, as long as it doesn’t have a charge. When I see what’s behind the scenes at a haunted house on Halloween, it’s not scary anymore. And that’s also true in life. Pull back the curtain, see what’s there. Then you can deal with it and move on to a life of infinite possibility. You embrace the life you were meant to live.

Recipe For Life

How does it feel to move forward in life? Notice the different areas, one at a time: Relationship, career, financial, health or even spiritual ‘progress’. There is medicine in the sensations that arise as we consider moving forward in each area of life. Our body will let us know what the current layer is through sensation. This is the current layer of resistance, belief or judgement that doesn’t serve the highest good. This is the mantle that guides us through. Always start where you are and see what arises in this recipe for life.

Sometimes we move forward in baby steps.  Other times we may be out of the gate like a race horse. This is perfect. Your heart knows when to be the tortoise and when to be the hare. As we create our life and resolve what’s not serving us in the present, we notice forward movement. This is the case for every area of life. See for yourself as you let the heart guide you forward via your feeling nature.

Wisdom to Know the Difference

We handle the things that we can handle; the things we have access to. There are some things that we can’t handle, at least in the present experience. There is wisdom in knowing the difference, as they say. The wisdom comes from being present and feeling our way through. This is living with God, Creator, Source, Divine Mother, or whatever you like to refer to that as. 

This is a sweet way to live because it takes the burden of proof off of us as individuals. We merge with the big “I” in the present. No mind is necessary. There is so much there for us in that experience. In that – we know what serves us and our community. We don’t have to figure it all out ahead of time. We go from ‘oh!’ to ‘ahhhhh’.

The Ultimate Spiritual Path

Someone recently asked me, “What is the ultimate spiritual path?” I feel that forgiveness is key to releasing the past and moving forward spiritually. Regular mantra meditation supports us releasing our attachment to the mind. Vipassana and mindfulness are a blessing as well. A good religion can point to truth and the Creator’s good works through us. There are many, many paths, but I really feel the ultimate spiritual path is the path of no path.

What does that even mean, ‘the path of no path’? How do I follow that path, you might ask. The answer is, well, you don’t. You don’t do anything. You are already that. It’s the path of surrender; the path of letting go. The awareness that arises in this experience is our connection to Creator or Source. There is one small issue with this: The mind. Since the mind doesn’t understand this, it doesn’t like it. So how do we navigate this gate keeper of the mind?

The mind doesn’t fit.

A more important question might be, why do we need the mind to like this path of no path? The mind is fixated on ‘doing something to get something’.  This doesn’t fit into our experience of no path. In order to bypass the mind, it comes down to one question. Where is our attention in the moment?

There may be thoughts, but is our attention on the thoughts, or is our attention on what’s deeper? Is our attention on where thoughts arise from or on the thoughts themselves? Is our attention on the breath? Our attention can be on stillness or silence between, before and after thoughts arise, yes?

Let’s keep it simple.

So, there are many beautiful paths. My preference is the path of ‘no path’ because it’s already here. It doesn’t require a hundred years of austerity or living in a cave. You don’t have to renounce relationships. You can even have a job. It might not always feel good, and so the mind looks for a way around. Invariably it realizes there isn’t one. It realizes that the way out is through. I feel this is the ultimate spiritual path. This work is about clearing our perception to see what’s already here. -John Newton, from his Monday Call Series

Unleashing Abundance

To unleash abundance, notice everything around us is abundant. It is the bounty of the Universe.  It doesn’t necessarily mean money.  Our definition of abundance is the ability to have and do what it is that you want to have and do – when you want to have and do it.  Abundance represents our flow. Our connection to the Infinite is our allowance as we are God’s paintbrush.  The Creator doesn’t have form except through Its creation – which is us.

Notice what is coming up for you around the issue of abundance in your life.  See the core beliefs and the reflective patterns that keep showing up.  What accompanying sensations do you notice in your body?  We don’t have to get rid of these feelings we have even if they feel less than optimal.  Let’s just pay attention to them – accept what’s here inside the body. Fully accepting whatever sensations that are arising around this issue and embracing them, appreciating them, loving them is the key to moving forward.

A Divine Meeting

Birthing abundance doesn’t always feel good. It’s not necessarily a straight line. Sometimes we hit a curve or a bump. Sometimes we get angled into a trajectory where we need to go, but the ego doesn’t want to go there.  That is going to feel like tension. It’s going to feel uncomfortable. But as we surrender into that sensation, into that direct experience, we get insight, information and guidance. This is how intelligent you are – not the mind, but the body and heart.  That’s how nature works.  We want to make sure that we’re aligned with it’s intelligence.”  – John Newton from “Unleashing Abundance” Weekly Call Topic

The True Nature of Love

When we give ourselves permission to be where we are, without judgment, we begin to see our true nature. We see the true nature of love.  Can we love where we are?  Are we willing to love this here and now experience even when it doesn’t feel ‘good’?  Especially when it doesn’t feel good?  Something magical happens when we follow through with this.  If we’re always trying to get ‘there’, we’re never okay with ‘here’.  ‘There’ keeps alluding us because when we get to where we thought ‘there’ was, it extends off even farther still.  

The True Nature of Love

If we allow ourselves to be ‘here’ and accept and surrender and appreciate and feel this now ‘here-ness’ without conditions, we’re back in the flow of Intelligence; the flow of well-being.  We’re in that ‘I am’ state of being, and then ‘there’ becomes ‘here’ because it’s a frequency match.  If we lower our vibration through judgment, expectation, or past imprints that we refuse to forego, forgive, or move forward from – then we aren’t loving ourself nor can we be open to love from others.

It’s a beautiful thing to surrender to where we are and see what we feel. This is the opposite of the judgment that kept us bound to the past; kept us feeling stuck.  We want to go as deep as we can; to where there’s no depth left.  This is absolute surrender. In that, true love arises. The kind of true love that doesn’t need an object or a person. It just is, and that is your true nature.  ~ John Newton from “The True Nature of Love” Weekly Call Series Topic

On Doing Nothing

What does doing nothing mean? This may be an absurd question if the mind tries to answer it. The mind doesn’t get what doing nothing is. We need to look beyond thinking to see the true answer.  The same is true with this question: What if you never did anything?   To the mind, this doesn’t even make sense.  The obvious here is that we need to move our perception beyond the mind to truly ‘see’.  

It all comes down to perspective.  You are not your mind nor are you your body.  If you were, then who were you a hundred years ago?  Not that, right?  What we are pointing to here is your true and eternal nature – never born and never dies.  It is pure awareness or consciousness which never did anything.

Who’s On First?

Even when it appears you are doing something physically, isn’t the body doing it?  Are you aware of the body in this present moment? Of course you are.  If you are aware of something, then you can’t be that thing you are aware of any more than you are the computer you see in front of you.  

When you identify with the ‘you’ that is pure awareness – the you that is eternal – you have access to everything in all of Creation. When you are willing to do nothing – you can do anything.  As you are willing to be nothing, you have access to everything.  – John Newton from his event Sept.23rd, 2015 at Temple of the Living God, St. Petersburg, FL
