Meditations

I’m life coach and transpersonal guide Peter Winslow. Most of you who know me, know I favor the early mornings for meditation. Most learned sages teach that four am, twelve noon and eight pm are the three times of day that provide the best opportunity for tuning in, with four am being the time when we are “nearest to the veil” that separates the material world from the essential realms. This is because everywhere on the planet, four am is the time at which everything is most quiet.

Just before the illuminating rays of dawn, nature rests in a state of flux. Terrestrial balance is stable, cleansed of the previous day’s frenetic energy and the effects of humanity’s dominion and industry. It’s in these early hours that the animal aspects of mind remain in slumber, though a deeper essence is fully awake. For a brief time, sleep has purged the emotional attachments we accumulate, and our subconscious acuity is highly perceptive.

Meditation at this still yet energetically reticulated time of day allows us to connect with inner awareness in a very profound and intimate way. Simple awareness becomes a mirror of worldly consciousness; as we awaken with the planet, we gain the opportunity to purposefully set the tone for the coming day. Even a slight moment of quietude at the muted moments of dawn can put the day into perspective. Each morning, our day’s destiny is not yet fixed, and as such there is nothing we cannot do.

Practice this yourself and discover what the wisest among us have taught from time immemorial: you are deeper than you know, deeper than you can know. It’s in our meditations that we witness the depth of who we truly are.

Law of Emergence – Part Four

Hello I’m Peter Winslow, a life coach and counselor in Scottsdale AZ. We’ve been discussing the Law of Emergence, a superior realization of how to get what you want in life. It comes to us from life coach and New Thought philosopher Derek Rydall.

We looked at how to apply this law to achieve your dreams step by step, beginning here: first, change your language, and stop talking about what is “negative” in your world. Second and most importantly, stop looking at “why” your dream isn’t happening. It may feel counterintuitive, but that is what often blocks you—the search for (and focus on) what is holding you back.

Third, let all the “negative” stuff pass you by like flotsam on a river, and instead stay focused on navigating where that river is taking you. Give 100% of your attention to what you desire, and 0% to what you don’t.

More than an exercise, it’s a way of life—one which replaces any dogma that demands you must work hard to improve yourself before you can have your goals and dreams. While hard work has its reward, it is just not enough. For example, you can dig ditches 12 hours a day for years, fill them back in, and never reach a satisfying conclusion.

In many cases hard labor is counter-productive as it keeps you myopically bound to the toil at hand, unable to recognize the many hidden opportunities that pop up all around you—which then get picked up and taken advantage of by more open-minded adventurers.

The Law of Emergence entails a deep realization that replaces any inferior concept of who you are. Make this breathtaking breakthrough and you simply cannot return to any worn-out belief that somehow in some way, “I am not enough” and so must work harder and harder to “earn” your success.

You are not just a physical body; you are a mix of elements and energy operating in a quantum field. This realization combines inner harmony with outer order, and activates the Law of Emergence in very powerful ways.

When you finally get it, nothing can stand between you and whatsoever you would have, and be.

The Law of Emergence – Part Three

I’m life coach Peter Winslow. In the last few posts I’ve written about the Law of Emergence, which comes to us from New Thought leader and life coach Derek Rydall.

This amazing principle outlines an intuitive practice for experiencing the fullest and most gratifying life you can imagine. How?

Instead of working to become worthy of the relationships and possessions you want, the Law of Emergence says that you are already good enough to claim anything and everything your heart desires.

If you are familiar with the teachings of spiritual sage Eckhart Tolle, you will recognize Derek’s message as perfectly supporting what you have already learned about how life works.

Both men agree that we are aligned with what we already have; we already own it “in spirit.” In fact, it’s the erroneous belief that we do not already own or even deserve the things we desire which keeps them from us.

The solution is to get our critical cognitive mind (the ego) out of the way and proceed with our goals intuitively. We do this by replacing the limiting beliefs, fears and misunderstandings about who we are with a different mindset and mentality.

How to do that, you may ask?

Begin by changing your language—a very simple and tremendously effective practice. First, stop talking about what’s happening in your world that you interpret as “negative.” Second and perhaps most importantly, stop looking for the reasons “why” your dream isn’t happening the way you want it to, and realize that on the negative side, the “why’s” are often irrelevant. Things just happen sometimes.

Third, let the “negative” stuff pass through as if it is trash floating on a river, and stay focused on navigating where your river is taking you. Ignore the “debris” you discover along the way as it rushes by. You can’t direct the outcome and destination of your vessel when you are focused on the debris—the so-called “negatives” of life.

Next we’ll see exactly why this practice delivers amazing results, more quickly and easily than anything you’ve done before.

The Law of Emergence – Part Two

I’m life coach Peter Winslow. From the previous post you may remember life coach Derek Rydall’s description of the Law of Emergence:

“People may have told you that if you haven’t gotten what you want in life, you need new tools and techniques for self-improvement. Yet nothing could be farther from the truth, according to the Law of Emergence.

This towering principle states that trying to improve yourself will only delay fulfillment of your desire. Self-improvement is merely an illusion, a red herring, because the Self as it is, is fully complete.

Your talents, abilities and circumstances may improve, but who you are at your core is already perfect. And just as an acorn contains the mighty oak tree within its shell, you already have everything necessary to fulfill your destiny.”

Unfortunately, most people have been led to believe otherwise. Nearly everybody sees themselves as lacking in some way, victims of circumstance, beholden to conditions in the outside world which determine what they will receive in life.

Derek teaches to imagine yourself as a seed. Within the seed is your destiny, and your first mission is to cultivate the conditions which allow it to flow in harmony.

When you realize this inner harmony as an intrinsic part of who you are, no limitations in the material world can stop your “inner oak tree” from emerging to fulfill its unique perfection.

Rydall writes that: “…As we tap into our larger Self, we will create opportunity, relations, and wealth ‘out there’ — but what is really happening is a greater manifestation of the inner Self.”
