Sponsoring Thought

Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations With God series,
defines a Sponsoring Thought as "a deep-seated initial idea that we already have
what we are not now experiencing." With this, he says, "then we can experience it much
more rapidly."

But sponsoring thoughts are based on either love or fear. If fear-based, then the thought is that we DON'T have whatever it is that we desire, don't deserve it etc., and that effectively blocks it from manifesting.

I feel it is crucial for us to identify our "sponsoring thoughts" about what we want to be, do and have, whether it relates to our rejuvenation goals or anything else. Writing them out would make them even more powerful.

If we identify sponsoring thoughts that are in opposition to what we want, we can consciously choose a new thought, more aligned with that desire. Neale Donald Walsch points out that this is the meaning
of the "New Thought Movement" that came about in the mid to late 19th century.

Example of a fear-based Sponsoring Thought: "Everyone ages. I just have to surrender to the inevitable and expect to go downhill with the passing of the years."

New Thought: "Time is an illusion and has no power over me. I choose to be ageless!"

The Power of Positive Narcissism

From time to time, a cyber-friend, noting my focus on "youthing", has accused me of being vain, and that my actions along those lines are driven by the desire for compliments and admiration.  He
implied that this was at the expense of my spirituality.

This is a vast oversimplification. Although of course it's nice to be noticed and appreciated for one's appearance, I am driven more by the desire to be the best I can be on all levels, and to express that to
the world, regardless of what anyone else thinks of me. In short, it's more about self-appreciation and self-love rather than looking for this outside of myself.

All of this takes awareness and discipline! it's about the farthest thing from a "quick fix." It's an ongoing journey of learning and growing. This is, of course, part and parcel of spiritual development.

I want to look good, yes. I want to feel good. I want to do good, to be a positive force in the world, and I can best do that by first cultivating my own garden, taking the best possible care of me.

Killing Time


GETTING OUT OF TIME

a couple of excerpts:

"The way these cells and bodies were created originally, and the way they will go back to, the only time they would change or reproduce was when you put a charge in them, on a conscious level.

That is why your bodies used to live so long. Your body would stay identical—the cells would not even reproduce. The cells would breathe and take in the nutrients, and they would exhale—but they would be alive exactly the way they were. They didn't die; they didn't have a reproductive system. Then, when you would put an electrical charge through your body, that blossomed the cells, and you erupted into a whole new body.

When you quit putting the excitement of life into these bodies, the body had to rely on the fail-safe mechanism that lies in the mitochondria that agitates and irritates the genes, forcing them open. When you are not putting life into it, your body secretes an acid. The acid creates a burning effect which causes the body to change at every level, your DNA, your RNA, all the cells, everything.

Now what you want to do is get to a point of creating the sparking on your own. Once you get that sparking into the cellular structures, then that will pick up your mind structure, your spiritual genetics, and this is where the physical genetics and your spiritual genetics meet.

Your spiritual genetics can't merge with the body unless that electricity is coming from you, unless you can generate an excitement, joy, or passion for life. If you've got that, then your spiritual genetics are transforming the body into a body that your spiritual genetics can use and needs for this lifetime. If you don't generate that spark, then your body and your reality is created by default by the fail-safe mechanism out of your genetic structure, out of what you term your past, out of a time orientation—not from your moment."


"If you could make a nice big sign and put it everywhere you are going to look, on your fridge, on your dash, This is the only me there has ever been! Put a note to yourself anywhere you are going to catch it to remind you that you have never been anything else but you in this present moment. If you can do this, you can get that brain to trigger back in and get rid of that time orientation. You'll start picking up a new attitude and a new feeling, a strength. You'll become addicted to that strength real fast. In the beginning you're going to have to teach the brain to remember your new orientation, but after that you won't forget. Remember it takes the brain twenty-eight days to catch on to anything new.

As always, relax with this. You've embraced a grand new tool to aid you in becoming what you already are. This is going to stimulate lots of questions, and there is a whole lot more information yet to come on time, memory, and the present moment. A lot of that may be technical. Here you have the working end of it. It's not that time is a 'bad' thing; it isn't—it is a fascinating phenomenon that you've all gone a little overboard on. You may be starting to figure out that even your body is a product of time. You can call your body a gap, a smear, compressed data, an image or whatever you will, but without your belief in time you wouldn't have one. But you don't have to live so far behind the present moment. The majority of the planet smudges years and even centuries; a few seconds are all that are necessary to maintain a body, and that is plenty close to have everything you want from both the physical and non-physical realms."

You Create Your Own Youthing

Seth channeled through Jane Roberts:

"Thoughts and images are formed into physical reality and become
physical fact. They are propelled chemically. A thought is energy. It
begins to produce itself physically at the moment of its conception.

Mental enzymes are connected with the pineal gland. Chemicals as you
know them, body chemicals, are physical, but they are the propellants
of this thought energy, containing within them all the codified data
necessary for translating any thought or image into physical
actuality. They cause the physical body to reproduce the inner image.
They are sparks, so to speak, initiating the transformation.

Chemicals are released through the body through the skin and pore
systems, in an invisible but definite pseudo-physical formation. The
intensity of a thought or image largely determines the immediacy of
its physical materialization. There is no object about you that you
have not created.

There is nothing about your physical image that you have not made.

The initial thought or image exists within the mental enclosure of
which I have spoken. It is not yet made physical. It appears within
the physical system, but apart from it.
Then it is sparked into physical materialization. This is the general
procedure. All thoughts or images are not completely materialized,
however.

The intensity may be too weak. There is a struggle of sorts among
ideas for expression. The chemical reaction sparks certain electrical
charges, some within the layers of the skin. There are radiations
then through the skin to the exterior worlds containing highly
codified information and instructions.

The physical environment can be seen in many ways as direct
extensions from the physical self.

Physical formations of other images, you see, radiating outward;
these subject to continual change, as is the physical image, and all
of this reflecting the inner and basic action.

The physical environment is as much a part of you, then, basically
you see, as the physical image. Your control over it is quite
effective, for you create it as you create your fingertip. You are
not consciously aware, consciously underlined, of your control over
the physical object that may be touched by that fingertip.

The physical objects are made or constructed of the same pseudo-
material that radiates outward from the physical image, only the
higher intensity mass is different. When it builds up enough, you
recognize it as an object. At low intensity mass it is not apparent
to you.

Every nerve and fiber within the physical image has an inner purpose
that is not seen, and that serves to connect the inner self with
physical reality-in other words, that allows the inner self to create
physical reality.

The physical image is a part of objective reality. This should not be
overlooked, when speaking of the self. In one respect the physical
image and physical objects go flying out in all directions from the
inner core of the whole self.

There is always impetus, action, and motion; that is, of intensities
and not of space.

A thought is indeed faster than a locomotive.

Or a rocket."
