Just Because You’re Thinking It (WT693)

Just Because You’re Thinking It (WT693)


WT 693 Just because you're thinking it

This morning I awoke in a mood. A bad one.

“Don’t talk to me, I’m in a mood”, I snapped at Ross.

“I can see that”, he said.

We were about to sit down and do our “levels”. This is the term the Silva Method use for relaxing and visualising and manifesting.

“I can’t do it. I’m going into the bedroom and do some tapping.” With that I turned, picked up my phone and headed to the room.

I know, and I trust you do by now as well, that nothing good comes from being in that state.

I know that I have to get myself out of what David Bayer calls the Primal State and into the Powerful State.

The Primal State is the state of “fight or flight”. The Powerful State is a state of being relaxed, calm, peaceful and creative.

We can’t solve problems when we’re stressed and anxious and in a negative frame of mind.

I opened up The Tapping Solution app on my phone and chose a tapping meditation to listen to.

As I tapped along, following the instructions, Jessica Ortner said something that totally resonated with me. She said, “You don’t have to believe everything you think.”

Yes. Just because you’re thinking it, doesn’t mean it’s true.

In fact, how often do we create scenarios in our head and play out conversations where we’re imagining the worst or having stern words with someone who has upset us.

If we go deeper, in the 5 Primary Drivers by David Bayer, our thoughts come from our beliefs and can only ever be in alignment with our beliefs. Another “aha” for me.

Of course. If my thoughts are coming from my beliefs and my beliefs are limiting me and as David says, “If they don’t feel good, then they aren’t true”, here was another way of saying the same thing.

Just because you’re thinking it, doesn’t mean it’s true and you don’t have to agree with it.




I trust this resonates with you too and that it will help when you next find yourself in a Primal State, thinking things that aren’t true. Simply say to yourself, I don’t agree. I don’t have to believe everything I’m thinking, then start thinking about something that you do agree with and that you do want.

Move yourself out of the Primal and into the Powerful State – quickly.

Down a Long Dark Tunnel (WT692)

Down a Long Dark Tunnel (WT692)


WT 692 Down a long dark tunnel

I’m so blessed.

I have such great people in my life and community.

This week I was working with my accountant.

I was sharing my desire to travel to South Africa next year to complete the Silva Method Mind Control course again.

The training is being held in a game park and it has always been my goal to visit a game park. This would be an amazing experience, combining the two.

I expressed a little doubt about how I can manifest this and my awareness that this doubt is what will prevent the manifestation.

My accountant surprised me with his response. He said, “It’s like going down a dark tunnel, where you can’t see anything and you have to feel your way through and yet you know you’ll reach the end and get your goal.”


It’s the commitment, the determination, the faith and belief that you will have what you want.

In that moment, I realised I needed to decide; to commit to making it so and taking action.

I’m ready to walk into the long dark tunnel of faith and belief because I know I will emerge into the light.

How about you?

Have you got a long dark tunnel you need to walk down?

Is there something you want and yet doubt your ability to have it?

If so, I encourage you to get into that tunnel.

You Don’t Have to Know (WT691)

You Don’t Have to Know (WT691)


WT 691 You don't have to know

This week Ross and I have been enjoying a road trip from Newcastle to Melbourne to Adelaide.

We attended a personal development workshop with Kachina Ma’an and I want to share one of the biggest takeaways for me.

We were discussing our limitations.

We talked about what holds us back.

One of those things is a belief or expectation that we have to know, that we have to analyse, that we have to truly understand what stops us from achieving or being what and who we want.

In one short sentence, Kachina dispelled that. She said, “You don’t have to know what’s in the garbage to empty it”.

Oh boy!

How liberating is that?

We don’t have to spend hours, days, weeks, months or years desperately trying to understand what holds us back. We simply need to empty the garbage.

Kachina gave us tools to do just this.

In less than 10 seconds a day, we can empty the garbage and start the day with a fresh new perspective.

This is similar to what Dr Joe Vitale talks about when he explains Ho’oponopono, in his book “Zero Limits”, where our aim is to clear the slate and get back to zero memories.

This may or may not resonate with you. That will depend on your beliefs and values.

For me, I’m all for an easy way to do things.  We don’t need to make it hard.

So, your mission this week is to become aware of your habitual thinking.

Become aware of your habitual expectations and if you find that they’re negative, be open to being able to release them.

Remember, you don’t have to know what’s in the garbage to empty it.

Extract Those Limiting Beliefs (WT690)

Extract Those Limiting Beliefs (WT690)


WT 690 Extract those limiting beliefs

The other morning Ross and I were lying in bed and talking.

“I wish I could just reach in and rip out all my limiting beliefs”, I said.

“Even the ones I don’t know I have.”

“Why don’t you?” Ross asked.

“What do you mean?”

“Remember, when we did The Silva Method Course with Jeanine Sciacca and she said, the more outlandish and weird, the quicker things work?”


“Well, why don’t you go into your mental workshop and have aliens or some other weird way  to extract all your limiting beliefs?”

“Wow! Yes. Thank you Ross. I can do that.”

And I did.

I used the Silva Method to go into my mental workshop and I had my team extract two big “blocks” of limiting beliefs; one from each side of my head, just near the Amygdala.

It felt sooooo good.

The blocks were replaced with what David Bayer calls Empowered Decisions because a limiting belief is a decision we’ve made at some point in time. We know how to make decisions, so let’s make new ones.

My new empowered decisions have all been infused into a beautiful pink love-heart shaped cushion and placed into my mind to replace all the limiting beliefs.

I feel so confident. I feel so grateful. I feel so positive.

We all have limiting beliefs, some of which we are conscious of and others not so.

This week I encourage you to listen to yourself and become aware of your limiting beliefs, and either choose to turn them into empowered decisions or follow my lead and extract them altogether.

How Quick Can You Manifest (WT689)

How Quick Can You Manifest (WT689)


WT 689 How quick can you manifest

When we talk about manifesting, what thoughts come to mind for you?

For many of us, it’s the attainment of something we have been wanting.

Whether we’ve consciously worked to create our desire, as in visualising, reciting affirmations, journaling etc. or unconsciously, where we’ve simply decided we want something and then seemingly magically it appears, according to Abraham Hicks, “Manifestation represents what you’re doing vibrationally”.

In other words, you attract what is a match for your current vibration.

Abraham says, “Manifestations are ideas. Thoughts are manifestations. When you’re thinking of something, it’s a thought that’s manifested. You have to be in the vibrational vicinity of it before it can occur and if you’re in the vibrational vicinity when it does occur, it just feels logical.”

Recently I wrote out my affirmation statement of how I want to enjoy my day. For me, the idea of being able to walk along the beach each morning and afternoon is really appealing. I love walking along the water’s edge with the waves lapping at my feet.

To my surprise and delight, it only took a few weeks and that was exactly what I was doing.

Ross and I enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Seal Rocks having hired a friend’s motorhome. Each morning and afternoon we walked along Number 1 Beach, relaxing and soaking in the beautiful sunshine, with the water tickling our toes.

What is it you want to manifest?

What are your desires?

If it’s not happening, maybe it’s time to take a look at where you are vibrationally so you can ensure you’re a match for what you want.

The sooner you match your vibration, the sooner you’ll manifest your desires.

Here’s the link to Abraham Hicks for their thoughts and definition of manifestation. https://youtu.be/m1yF4Gb_Eb0

May you enjoy everything you want and then some, in quick time.
