Dive For Your Pearls

This book is part true love story and part how-to guide. In these pages, I take you with me on the spiritual adventure of my life and share how I eventually found what I was longing for – deep trust in my own inner wisdom and a true love, soul mate and life partner that can meet me on all levels. Along with the story, I share the insights and learning that lit the way for me with the hope that this will also help illuminate your path of love and wisdom.

My quest for wisdom began when I was a child, trying to figure out if church had the answers to life’s big questions. Continuing by studying psychology at university, I was profoundly affected by the death of my father and discovered the practice of meditation. For nearly two decades thereafter, I trained for and became an ordained Buddhist.

But wisdom wasn’t enough. Although denying it for many years, deep down I also ached to be properly partnered by a soul mate – a true love that shared every aspect of my life. A series of experiences finally brought me to fulfill that destiny and the ensuing spiritual renaissance resulted in the resigning of my ordination and the founding of Thrivecraft – an inspirational coaching practice providing a universal path of love and wisdom for all.

Echoing my own journey, the first half of Pearls is about inner wisdom. Along with this part of my story, I share tips and teachings on meditation, mindfulness and intuition so that you too can tune in to your own natural inner wisdom.

The second half focuses on finding true love and includes my ‘Get Ready For Love’ step-by-step guide. I also describe how inner wisdom continues to serve a deepening relationship once you’ve met a partner (or, indeed, reveals when it is time to move on).

It is my dear wish that you will be inspired by my story and tips, transported by a special ‘Ask Your Inner Wisdom’ meditation I have created and recapture your natural entitlement to be completely guided and supported in all that you do. Go ahead and find the kind of love and wisdom that you so desire and so deserve. Dive for your pearls – they are right here and they are all yours.

Meditation and New Year Angels

For me, 2015 started with much excitement as I began printing out the manuscript of the book I have been writing for the last nine months – Diving for Pearls: Discovering Inner Wisdom – new book from Maggie Kay.  The pages were literally rolling out of the printer on the stroke of midnight, much to my delight at having completed it.

In fact, I watched the new year London fireworks on TV with the first few chapters in one hand and my wonderful husband Pat’s hand in the other, buzzing because I had just managed to finish writing my first good draft that evening.  I had been aiming to complete my book by the end of the year, but had given myself some licence to go over that if necessary.  When I realised I was nearly there on the morning of the 31st, however, I went all out to get it done in time for the dawn of 2015, forgoing meals and typing with happy fervour.

At Pat’s suggestion, we read out a chapter to each other before bed in the wee hours. I hadn’t shared my book with anyone before so was thrilled that he absolutely loved it and can’t wait to read it all.  I feel so supported by Pat who has been nudging me to get on with book writing for years.  And now I’ve finally done it!

Things took an interesting turn on New Year’s day when our Jeep broke down while food shopping in the neighboring village.  Yet, even that was somewhat charmed because a lovely young farmer man with typical practical confidence and know-how spent an hour trying to start it – a bearded angel in oily jeans and a pick-up truck.  I had actually put out a prayer for a mechanical angel to show up, and he did!

Despite his good-willed attempts, this angel didn’t manage to get the Jeep going, bless him, but my sister Katy, who lives in the village, kept me company at her house and supplied me with tea while we waited for my vehicle recovery service. (She also bought the helpful young man some bottles of beer as a thank you which he appreciated).  As I was there, I helped Katy get some boxes into her attic and she passed on to me some lovely clothes that she no longer needed.

The recovery guy got the Jeep started first time with the help of some injector fuel (or something – I don’t quite understand) and an enormous set of jump leads, and I was able to drive home. Pat was waiting to help me unpack the shopping, having been tipped off by Katy by phone that all was well.

So, although it was dark and raining by the time I got back and things hadn’t at all gone according to plan that day, I was left feeling totally blessed, supported and loved by beautiful caring people – whether strangers or family.

I actually kind of enjoyed the whole adventure, and am reminded that if we meet ‘adversity’ with that spirit of love and acceptance, we can have fun and encounter much goodwill and human kindness along the way.

As I have just been explaining in my new book, Diving for Pearls, I nearly always find the silver lining in any clouds that come my way these days.  I put this down to the clarity and positivity that my experience of meditation brings into my heart, mind and soul.  The awareness – or mindfulness as it is often called – generated by meditation gives you the opportunity to respond creatively to things that happen to you and draw good fortune to you.  This means that you can truly be master of your own universe and encourage things to turn out for the best.

If you are thinking about learning to meditate or having some support with an existing practice, I have a wonderful homestudy online meditation course available which results in a qualification as an accredited Thrivecraft Meditation Practitioner.

This easy-going four week course gives you tips and support as well as a thorough introduction to four fantastic meditation techniques that foster mindfulness, positivity, manifestation power and inner wisdom.  Simply watch the videos, listen to the audios and try out the guidelines I am laying out for you.

Secret of Successful Manifestation / Ah Meditation

You know about the Law of Attraction and have long been practising positive thinking and affirmations.

Whether you were switched on in the 60s when you learned to meditate, during the 80s reading Louise Hay’s ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ or relatively recently watching the DVD of  ‘The Secret’, you are familiar with the universal principle that we “create our own reality”.

But have you REALLY got the hang of it?  Are you seeing all the positive developments you would like in your life?

There’s a subtle principle at the heart of manifestation practises that makes all the difference.  It’s something that took me a while to grasp, and I’ve been studying and practising these arts for over 30 years!

The key is to be truly RECEPTIVE as well as positively focussed.  As well as ‘asking’ for what we desire to come into our life, it is important to allow ourselves to really ‘receive’ it.

If we are too narrow, tense or controlling, about the details of how or when our dreams will come to fruition, we risk repelling what we desire.  We must be relaxed and open for it to truly ‘land’.

There’s a formula (more of a metaphor, really) that I like to use which is

100% intention + 100% surrender = manifestation

In other words, as well as being clear, committed and focussed on your desired outcome (100% intention), it is equally important to let go of any attachment to what may or may not happen (100% surrender).

Letting go of attachment releases tension.  YOU don’t have to figure out how or when it’s going to happen.  YOU don’t have to control or manipulate events to make it happen.  Instead, you surrender to a higher intelligence in the universe (God, karma, nature, destiny, law of attraction – however you experience it) and simply put your trust in the process.

It may seem like a paradox – to be 100% intentional and 100% surrendered at the same time – but it’s not.  An attitude of bright hope, eagerness and positivity combined with relaxation, faith and receptivity is completely magnetic!

The true power of manifestation lies in our ability to lift our energy, our spirit, our vibration to the level of what we desire.  Once we do that, people, events and opportunities match that energy and mirror it right back to us.

If it’s a promotion you seek – imagine yourself happy in your new job.  If it’s a soul mate – feel what it’s like to be fulfilled in love.  If it’s a more prosperous way of living – visualise living in that bigger house, driving that new car.

Once you inhabit what you seek in your imagination (as though it’s already happening) with consistent energy and focus  – and at the same time let go of tension and control – you create the optimum environment for it to show up in your life.

Rachel Elnaugh (Dragons’ Den) discusses the art of manifestation with Srimati

The ‘art of manifestation’ penny finally dropped with me listening to the fabulous Abraham-Hicks teachings.  (One of my all time favourite spiritual teachings)

http://www.abraham-hicks.com/lawofattractionsource/index.php

Abraham-Hicks explain that it is not really a matter of ‘manifesting’ in the sense of creating things out there and moving towards them.  Rather, we simply create the energetic magnetic field within ourselves, keep a relaxed focus and allow those things (that have already been created simply by our wishing them) to move towards us – something they will inevitably do.

It is a question of ALLOWING – not earning, not winning, not acquiring – simply resonating with and then ALLOWING.

Another of my favourite teachings comes via Wayne Dyer in the form of the Ah Meditation.  Like the Abraham-Hicks teachings, this practice has long been integrated into my coaching and workshops.

The Ah meditation is a perfect way to develop 100% intention and 100% surrender.

It is a simple, short and powerful manifestation technique that will catapult your efforts into hyperdrive!

In the following videos I am teaching the Ah meditation at the Entrepreneurs Find Inner Wisdom event (attended by Rachel above) a couple of years ago, followed by a guided practice.

Please be my guest and let me know how you get on with it…

 

 


Manifestation, Wayne Dyer and the Ah Meditation

In the last few days I’ve been reading a book by spiritual teacher Dr Wayne W Dyer called There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem.  It’s great – so relevant, uplifting and re-assuring – and is awakening many creative thoughts within me.

Wayne first became a source of inspiration for me after my husband Pat introduced his work to me eight or nine years ago.  During the 1990s, Wayne taught the Ah meditation – a manifestation practice that he’d learned from one of his Indian Gurus – and Pat and I have been passing it on to friends, colleagues and clients ever since our Thrivecraft days.

Last year, I explored the practice in depth at my Entrepreneurs Find Inner Wisdom event, held here in Totnes, Devon.  This was filmed, but apart from posting the videos on my blog soon afterwards, I have not really made a point of publishing them.  Despite this, I have noticed that often people find the videos searching for information on the Ah meditation, so perhaps it’s about time that I made them more available…

Having plucked Wayne’s book off my bookshelf recently (and realised it was gifted to me by my special guest at Entrepreneurs Find Inner Wisdom – former BBC TV Dragon and business mentor, Rachel Elnaugh) I took this as a sign that it was time to run the Ah meditation video series here on my blog.

So here you are, a series of six short videos on the Ah meditation to dip into.  Do let me know what you think – and what results you get!  Enjoy!

1. Manfestation – You are a magician!

3. Questions on the Ah Meditation – Do You Have to Believe for it to Work?
