Success coaches tell us to “Think Big!”, set big goals, if you want millions, think in millions, there’s no need to settle for less. This is the advice from people who have successfully acquired lots of money by thinking big, it has worked for them. High profile teachers such as T Harv Eker, John Assaraf and Robert Allen, to name but three, all dreamt of being millionaires from an early age yet also experienced all manner of ups and downs on the way to eventual success. They had fairly big dreams from the outset and succeeded in spite of every setback but what of us with more modest dreams? Is it more crucial that we think big or that we think true to ourselves?

If you’ve been studying consciousness, belief systems and the power of thoughts to create your reality, for a while, then you’ve probably found that it has not been all ease and plain sailing. Initial successes may have moved through to reveal fresh challenges and apparent setbacks. Periods of great hope, joy and expectation, where you thought all was well and sorted have somehow shifted inexplicably to renewed difficulties with fresh feelings of fear and anxiety. Why? What is the solution? I suggest that the answer to this is primarily previously hidden, subconscious, aspects of the self calling themselves into your consciousness awareness and secondly it is simply the rhythm of life. There is nothing actually wrong, you haven’t goofed, its just life moving on through you in a manner that differs from your prior conscious expectation. Here I offer a personal practice that can really help smooth the way.
