Sparks of InsightMany people ask me how long it takes to make a change or change a habit. As a rule of thumb, it takes three months for the change to be complete. The first month, you’re focusing on breaking the old habit. In the second month, you’re creating a new habit to take the place of the old one. The third month is when that new habit becomes comfortable and familiar. It takes about another three months for that new habit to really get settled into your consciousness. So persist and don’t give up when you’re making changes.

How long does it take to change?

Question MarkQuestion: Is it true that we can achieve anything with alpha level, and if so, how long does it take and how does it work?

Answer: We can achieve just about anything by accessing and using the alpha level, which is where we go in meditation, self-hypnosis, daydreaming or as we’re drifting off to sleep. This is simply a state where we are more inwardly focused on some idea. Everything you’ve already achieved, or not, all of your habits, the ways you feel about yourself and your world, have been programmed in by way of the alpha level.

Just think of your beliefs and expectations about your world. You can change them when you’re in the alpha level, and your world will then change. But understand, the only person you can change is yourself. You can’t change or affect other people by using the alpha level. You can change the way you feel about yourself, and with greater self-worth, insist on more respect and better treatment. But it has to begin with you.

The changes can begin immediately, but usually it takes a few weeks to notice a significant improvement. That’s because you’ve been on this old track for a long time, and it takes a period of time and energy to turn it around. The subconscious has to know that you’re serious about the change, so you’ll have to spend some time convincing it. You’d do that by focusing on the change in the alpha state, making sure that you don’t deny or doubt it during your daily life, and taking any action to bring it about.

Don’t confuse the subconscious by focusing on the change in the alpha state, then wonder if it’s going to happen, or dwell on the opposite. The more you’re able to bring your whole being into line with your desire, the faster it will occur, sometimes overnight.

Am I sabotaging myself?

 Ask The Expert  Comments Off on Am I sabotaging myself?
Dec 012015
 

Question MarkQuestion: When I change my goals as one of my desires manifests, am I sabotaging myself or giving the Universe conflicting messages?

Answer: Most people have the dilemma you do. As you manifest your desires, your desires expand and change. That is the way of the Universe, to learn to accept more of it into your life. When you reach the top of one hill, you then see much more of the horizon.

However, if one day you say, “I’d like to have a Mercedes” and visualize that, and the next day say “I’d like a Land Rover” and visualize that, you’re giving conflicting messages to your subconscious mind. It won’t know what you want, therefore will give you your most dominant idea, which may be a Ford Escort.

This is why so many teachers tell us to write down our desires. That way, we can keep them straight, and stay focused on what we’ve written, rather than meandering all over the place. We give our subconscious a clear vision, and the subconscious will return it fulfilled.

For years, I didn’t believe that I needed to write down my desires, figuring that I had them in my head. Some came to pass, the ones I was the clearest on, and stayed true to. When I did begin to write them down, I found how often I’d change them, then change back. No wonder my desires didn’t manifest very often. I was giving my mind confusing information.

What’s the difference between a goal and a vision?

 Ask The Expert  Comments Off on What’s the difference between a goal and a vision?
Feb 112015
 

Question: What’s the difference between a goal and a vision?Vision Sign

Answer: A goal is time limited. Once it’s accomplished, it’s done. Hopefully, you then move on to the next one. A vision is unlimited and has a broader scope. A goal is one task or achievement. It helps to build the vision as a step along the way. A vision gives focus to your goals, stringing them together so they move you in a specific direction.

A person can have a goal, but no vision of how it fits into their life. Once the goal is completed, they may backslide or hit a brick wall. The vision has to do with the reason or purpose you’re reaching the goal. It’s the motivating factor for working on the goal.

As a vision, it’s the long range view of how you ultimately want your life or business to be. Your vision is your inspiration for creating and achieving the goals that take you there.
