Changes, we see changes and go through changes throughout our lives. We want change in terms of improvement and achieving our goals. But to those who have no goals, the changes they see are not the changes they desire, but merely changes as a result of time and external conditions.
We shall focus in this blog on how to create the changes we want. To see changes, you’ve just got to be a different person. And I do not mean it in purely in an external sense, but true change must come internally. To create changes, we must change our thoughts, our words and our actions and habits. That is, we must use our waking hours with purpose, with the aim of moving towards our goal. That means, taking any action whether big or small that moves us 1 step closer to what we want to achieve. If you don’t, then you are drifting away from your goal! Napoleon Hill said, anytime we are not acting on a definiteness of purpose, we are drifting.
Be wary not to underestimate the power of changes that you make. A small change in your daily habit can result in massive change. Suppose you want to be fit and healthy. You can start to discipline yourself and start a habit of waking up early and going for a morning jog or walk, exercising, or going to the gym. You can already feel the change after your first day. Give yourself 3 weeks of consistent effort, and you shall see major change and improvement in your level of fitness and health. This is the power of consistency.
If you want to create something in your life, start by setting a goal, writing it down, and starting a strategy to achieve it. Write down several things you can do daily to move you a little closer to the achievement of your outcome. Then start to take action (mentally, emotionally and physically), and repeat that action daily and be consistent. This will create a powerful momentum.
One thing I recommend you to do is to spend at least 10 to 30 minutes each day to think and visualise the achievement of your goal. This is most powerful when done each night before you go to bed. During this time, immerse your mind by thinking about your goal, feel your intention to achieve it, feel how it would be when you have achieved it.
I remember in 1998 when I was an undergrad in university, this was what I did. I was studying architecture, and I desired to have my design published in the faculty yearbook. I didn’t do well in my design subject the year before, but now I had a desire, to improve on my design skill and actually intended to have my design published in the yearbook. My conscious mind told me that this was quite an impossible task, since only the top design students get to have their design included in the yearbook. But, in the beginning of 1998, I spent many nights intending it, visualising it, for I knew whatever I kept focusing on I would manifest sooner or later in my outer world.
Several months passed, and at the end of the 2nd semester at the end of that year, our designs were presented to our class tutor. My tutor personally thought my design was “ok”. But one night, one of my friends came into the computer lab in university and casually said that the professor of our year wanted all students to bring their drawings and models to him before we take them home. He said the professor wanted to ensure all students had been graded. The next day, I brought my drawings and model to the professor’s room. He inspected my building model, and said “I think you should leave your drawings and model in my office. I would like to take some photos of it and include it in the yearbook.” He continued to say he liked my design very much and that it would look very good in the yearbook. When I left his office, I thought about what had happened. This professor was the editor of the faculty yearbook, and he was the only one who selected the designs to be included in the book. The fact that my class tutor did not like my design did not pose as an obstacle to my goal, for my work was guided to be presented to the only person who could decide to put it in the yearbook!
This is why I believe that a small amount of time dedicated to ‘mental work’ (visualisation, intending, goal setting etc) is more effective than hundreds of hours of physical work without mental work. Bear in mind that mental work does not mean you do not need to take action. It only means you are building your foundation in a mental and emotional level, and actions are just an expression and effect of such internal work. Changes must first happen within, before it can be manifested externally. Be a new you!

The conditions you are experiencing in your life now are the contents in your subconscious mind pushed out.
If you could turn your subconscious mind inside out, what do you get? You get reflections that matches your current conditions. Man lives in his subconscious mind, which is his Subjective Reality.
If a man’s subconscious mind believes in Lack, he can only perceive and experience Lack in his outer world. If he is experiencing abundance and wealth, it means his subconscious thoughts are those of abundance and wealth at the moment. The study of New Thought and Metaphysics revealed to us that we can change our conditions by changing our powerful subconscious mind.
The subconscious is our Inner World. Our Outer World is a projection that matches our Internal World. Our physical actions to change our External World are futile, unless we first change our Inner World. Right actions that produce results are actually inspired subconsciously.
The subconscious is power, the conscious is direction. In ancient times, the subconscious is called The Female Aspect, while the conscious is The Male Aspect. The female appears weak, but inwardly she is enduring and powerful. She has the power of influence over the actions of men. The female symbol is water – soft, adapting to its surrounding, yet the ocean and rivers are powerful forces that can submerge the entire world.
The male appears strong, but inwardly he is quick to change his mind and direction. The male symbol is Fire. The male must make his own decision and then slowly persuade and influence the woman into a decision. Likewise, the Conscious Mind must make a new decision to create new thoughts, in order to influence the Subconscious to change. It is said, the male’s drive for power and success is so that he can please the female. The male symbol is fire. Fire is quick to start and spread, but can also be wiped out quickly, especially by water. Fire can heat up water, but it takes persistence and time. Likewise, to influence our subconscious is like the male trying to win over the female. He must do so by gentle persuasion, consistency and persistence. A man changes his decision quickly, but when a woman is finally influenced, she is slow to change her mind.
There are plenty of symbology for the subconscious mind. The biblical flood is a symbology of the flood of facts. The subconscious (female aspect) which symbol is water, has the power to flood your world with facts. We are submerged by facts (which we call “conditions” or “reality”) once it is set in motion. Once you are in the flood, you can only take inventory of your thoughts, keep the good ones alive in a place with 3 decks (the Ark). The 3 decks are the Spiritual, Psychological and Physical of our Being. Once the flood subsides, you are then able to create your world anew.

Many of us do not realize that when we think, we create thought forms. A thought form is a projection of mental energy . We are surrounded by our own thought forms and they constitute our own reality. Have you had a day when you are obsessed or preoccupied with a thought and you fail to observe the things happening around you? We all have, and we call it “preoccupied with a thought”.
What more, the next time someone describes something(such as “you know there’s a ramp that does a right turn (gestures with fingers), and then you see this round sculpture (moulds a miniature round shape with his hands), it’s right next to there(pointing to a point space while staring at it)” etc) to you in a conversation, watch how they point their fingers, gesture their hands and move their arm and draw things in the air while they stare at an area in mid air and talking to you. Sometimes they even assume that you are seeing what they are seeing. Yes, they are creating and moulding their own thought forms while describing to you. If you could make out approximately the size and configuration of the thought form, you could join in the fun and start pointing to areas in his thought form to keep the conversation going. If you made sense, he may say something like “Yessss, now you see/get it!”
One thing for certain, our thought forms are mostly habitual. We go around carrying the same beliefs, ideas, interpretations and concepts of things most of the time – unless we start to change them. The longer you have fed a thought form, the more energy you give to it, and it has a power of attraction to draw to you thoughts of similar nature. We even attract to us people who think along the same line as us, because of the inherent power of attraction behind thought frequencies.
From reading various case histories, it appears that thought forms can become ‘alive’ with intelligence itself. Ernest Holmes of the Science Of Mind movement wrote that “thoughts are intelligent”. Yes, thoughts being a thing of consciousness is intelligent. If you focus on a goal congruently and frequently, you are in fact charging it with the intelligence to fulfill itself.
According to Tibetian writings:
“Man is constructing thought-forms all the time, and is following unconsciously the same method as his Ego pursues in building his bodies, as the Logos follows in building his system, and as a planetary Logos uses in constructing His scheme.
A man speaks, and a very diversified mantram is the result. The energy thus generated swings into activity a multitude of little lives which proceed to build a form for his thought; they pursue analogous stages to those just outlined. At this time, man sets up these mantric vibrations unconsciously, and in ignorance of the laws of sound and of their effect. The occult work that he is carrying on is thus unknown to him. Later he will speak less, know more, and construct more accurate forms, which will produce powerful effects on physical levels.” (A Treatise on Cosmic Fire, p. 786)
Yes, we must learn to think less idle thoughts, and to construct more accurate thought forms. In my ebook Secrets Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination, my main purpose was to teach you various techniques on how to construct more accurate thought forms on a systematic and frequent basis, so that you are able to energize the very thought forms that can manifest into your own reality.
I have found since I was around 20 years old that when you scatter your thoughts and energy with idle thoughts and mental ‘noise’, you will be scattering your mental resources. Therefore over the years, I have learned, researched, formulated and experimented with various methods – basically to come up with techniques that I can re-use over and over to achieve different aims. When I successfully manifested something in a miraculous way, I would go back in mind to ascertain what mental strategies I had used, and from that I create the techniques which I teach in my Secrets Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination ebook. When you learn these techniques, you can still combine different techniques to suit your own mental style, capabilities and habits.

Do you believe that your thoughts have power? Most people ask”Invisible thoughts and words, what power can they have?”
This is a photo of a water crystal under a microscope by Japanese author Masaru Emoto. The water was exposed to the words “Love and Appreciation”. When frozen, the water is then put under a microscope and certain beautiful crystals will start to form under the microscope.
Now stop and think for a moment. How do you feel when you are feeling Appreciation, Gratitude, Love, Joy? You feel lighter, your chest area feels a tingly sensation as your energy moves freely. Now compare that to when you are feeling Resentment, Hate, Disappointment, Frustration. You will feel the energy get stuck in your chest, feelings of heaviness and stagnation. Feeling positive or negative is a significant factor of your level of health and energy. Not only that, when you think positive thoughts and feel negative emotions, you will be in a very different frequency of vibration than if you were not. And when your vibration is the frequency of Love, Gratitude, Appreciation, you will be attracting more experiences to validate those feelings.
And just think that all this we can control by choosing what thoughts to focus at each moment of our day.
This is a program I have done in the past to increase my ability to manifest and give instructions to my subconscious mind. You will find that with increased training in deeper states of mind (Alpha and Delta), you can manifest much easier and control your mind better. This will increase the speed of your manifestation.
The ARVARI’s Remote Influencing (RI) cds is one of the best course I have done. This course trains your mind to function at Delta brainwave level, which is when your subconscious is wide open for programming and new instructions from you (you normally only go to delta in deep sleep). You can experience lucid dreaming or out of body experiences (OBE) after you use this program. You will learn :
- Swiftly enter a deep meditative state of mind like a Yoga or Zen master, to manifest your desires.
-Heal yourself and others of physical, mental and spiritual wounds and ills.
- Program yourself to exude charismatic energy and passion
-Know that you are always protected and guided
- Improve your financial situation, work and personal relationships.
There are a few things you can do each day to improve your control of your mind. It will help you improve your ability to concentrate. Besides that, it will also put you in a state of wellbeing for you to think good thoughts and influence your subconscious mind to manifest your goals.
1. Avoid caffeine. Both coffee and tea puts caffeine into your body. So you think caffeine will give you a mental and physical ‘boost’ and make you more awake. Do you know why? According to Dr Robert Young a microbiologist who is an expert of the blood, he says our body identifies caffeine as a poison in our bloodstream. It then wakes up the immune system to work faster to get rid of the caffeine from our bloodstream. When our immune system wakes up and works on red alert mode, we feel the rush which we think is giving us a boost.
But in fact, caffeine tends to create hypertension, hyperactivity and most importantly it creates restlessness. If you are not used to taking caffeine, and you drink a cup of coffee right before bedtime, you will know what I mean. It makes the conscious mind restless and reduces concentration. And concentration and a state of calm are they keys to influencing your subconscious mind.
2. Build Up And Accumulate A High Level Of Life Energy. When your energy is low, you are vibrating at a lower frequency that aligns you with negative thoughts and emotions. Think of someone who is happy and optimistic, do they have a high or low level of energy? Think of someone who is depressed and pessimistic, do they have high or low energy?
3. Reduce stress in your daily life. I think we all know by now that stress is never good for our mental and physical health. Stress drains away a huge amount of mental and physical energy that we could instead use for our manifesting work. The brain needs a certain level of energy reserve to be able to think clearly. Depression is often a symptom of prolonged mental or physical stress, ie, the symptom of low energy reserve.
4. Get adequate sleep each night. Sleep deprivation can diminish your ability to think clearly. If you lose 2 hours of sleep, you will need more than 2 hours more sleep the next day to make up for it. Lack of sleep causes sluggishness of thought and physiology.
5. Spend quiet time meditating or doing ‘mental work’. Practising meditation and doing mental work especially at night before you go to bed is the best habit you can have to improve your manifesting skills. When the brain is working on Beta mode, we are in a state of normal waking hour thinking. In Beta, our Conscious Mind is very active and we create a lot of ‘mental noise’. We need to train ourselves to go into another state of mind in order to do mental work for manifesting. We can either go to Alpha or Delta. In my ebook “Secrets Techniques Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination”, I teach a very simple technique you can train daily to go into Alpha state of mind. If you have read my books, you will notice that I have used the Alpha state to help me achieve many of my goals and desires in the past.
The difference between ordinary state of Beta versus Alpha is this. For example, you can think a positive thought or give an instruction to your subconscious mind 20 times in Beta, and it will not compare to giving that same instruction to your subconscious mind JUST ONCE in Alpha.
If you would like to learn to go into a deeper state than Alpha, you can learn to go into Delta, which is even more powerful. I have been training myself to go into Delta state by using a very powerful training program which I highly recommend to anyone who wishes to improve their manifesting skills. You can learn more about it here : Training In Delta State Of Mind.
There you have it, these are the 5 easy things you can do to improve your mind and manifesting skills. There are of course others, but for today’s short blog article, I think these 5 will ge enough to get you started. If you wish to learn specific mental techniques, check out my books which will teach you the basic and advanced techniques to manifest using your mind and imagination.
Your Mind is your Life. You as a creator has the power to change your reality. This eternal Now is your power of intervention. A change in intention and decision, sends out a ripple to your reality and changes the course of events. Your power to influence when backed by belief and conviction, is an unstoppable force which nothing can stand against. There is no one to change other than Self. To influence others, you must convince yourself first and foremost. You cannot stop creating because Consciousness creates. To doubt your ability to create is to self-impose a belief that you cannot get what you want. It is to create self-imposed limitations. You are so free to create anything, to the extent of creating limitations from your negative beliefs. To free yourself from the bars of limitation is to believe in a creative power that nothing can oppose. 2 weeks ago when I bought a car, I booked the last 2 cars available, and both were black. I booked it even when I didn’t like black cars, just because the promotion and deal was so good. But when I got home, I decided I really wanted silver. I used a special technique in my imagination to think that I have a silver car that I like. The next day, the agent messaged me and I was offered a silver car that suddenly became available. (Check out my blog from last week about my new car).
Our imagination does create reality. 3 weeks ago while showing my dad around town, we were visiting a few new apartment showrooms out of curiosity. We found all of them were too expensive and didn’t have good views.
I recalled several years ago how I used to live in an apartment on the 34th floor in the city of Sydney with fantastic views of the city, and also the sea and mountain ranges in the far distance. My dad told me it is a good time to invest and that I should buy one. I said, “yes, I would consider if a great apartment comes along”. I desired for a city apartment, located high up in a tall building, with fantastic views. I used one of the mental technique which I taught in my new ebook manual “Secrets of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination”.
One week later, I received information from my brother overseas that he had seen a pre-launch for an apartment in my city with fantastic city views and they were selling the apartment to overseas investors. And the price of the apartment was extremely good for value and within the range I’m willing to spend for an apartment. In fact, I was surprised they were selling it at such a great price!
The very next day, I went to that showroom and admired the view. On one side of the tower, the units look out to the city, the harbour, the sea and hills in the horizon. I asked the agent which floor is still available? He told me level 25, 30, 34, 38. And I liked the unit on level 34 and signed the contract. Within 1 week, my imagination of reminising of the times I lived in my Sydney 34th floor rental apartment with great views and desiring one just like that, I now own a 34th floor apartment with great views that I wanted.
In my ebook manual, you will also read about the strange circumstances that lead me to secure the lease for the Sydney apartment years ago, all by using a special technique of imagination. In the book, you will learn 12 powerful techniques for manifesting and creating with your mind and imagination. More details here.
The universe is made of energy and intelligence. Without energy, nothing moves. The act of creating requires energy to be possible. Without energy, even the simplest tasks become hard and impossible to be accomplished. When your body is low on life energy, the fuel of life, you feel depressed and down and powerless. Your habitual mood can also be caused by the amount of energy you have in your body. When you are low in energy, you do not have enough resources to ‘boost up’ your vibration to a positive emotion.
Life energy is also what makes up your personality and level of magnetism. Communication between 2 people is all about an exchange of energy.
To manifest deliberately we need to have a good supply of Life Energy. You will find that your manifestations appear faster and easier when you have an abundance of Life Energy. In Hawaian teachings, life energy is called ‘Mana’, which is an essential ingredient in manifesting your desires and prayers.
Your body automatically recharges when you are in a relaxed state mentally and physically. In fact, meditation is a method used by ancient mystics in India and China to accumulate life energy. Martial arts practitioners who knows the real secrets of life energy, often claim that standing meditation is the best way to gather life energy. Ancient mystics often taught about being “stingy with energy”, to avoid waste of the precious energy of life.
Be conscious of what you are spending your energy on. Mental stress and mental labour actually uses up more energy than physical labour. Negative emotions eats up life energy unnecessarily. Also, a lack of sleep for one night will drain your life energy reserves that may take you a few days to recover. Scientific reports have shown that excess of these activities use up a lot of nerve energy: sex, digestion and excessive negative thinking. Overindulgence and overdoing any activity is never beneficial. The best way is moderation, the middle way.
When you are filled with vibrant vital energy, you will reach a level of life energy level that you feel naturally happy. At that state, you become lucky. Things seem easy, you accomplish with little effort. You are in a state of attracting good to you because you feel good.
