Living in the Material World
Often in the world of energy and spirituality you'll hear talk about transcending the material world. How focusing on "things" and "experiences" in your life are bad. How it’s important for you to go “above” or “beyond” the stuff of everyday life (the world of Maya as they say in the eastern spiritual paths).
Well, there is some validity to this, but… The thing is we live in the material world. Every day and every minute. So yes, you could completely transcend it and live only in the world of energy / spirit – like by living alone in a cave in the Himalayas or something. And for a few, that may be the right path, depending on where you're at on your journey.
But for most of us that’s not realistic, or desirable really. The material world has much to offer you – like beauty, connection, and joy. And there is nothing wrong with beauty, connection, and joy! In fact they are what make your life worth living. They bring you happiness, fulfillment, and peace.
Transcending the material world is most likely not your path.
Embracing it and optimizing it definitely is. To be sure, being too materialistic – in other words being too attached or exclusively focused on things and experiences – is not going to give you the think it will.
But harnessing your energy to strike the appropriate balance between the material and the spiritual aspects of your life will lead you to the life you want.
And how do you do this?
- Engage Your Mind – Set intentions, think positively, pray, send good energy out into the world. These are ways to actively use your mind to foster good energy. The more it's engaged in these activities, rather than its usual random wandering, the higher your energy will vibrate. It's the random wandering of the ego that tends to lead you in a negative direction, so by actively engaging in positive mental activities you'll be heading in a positive direction.
- Still Your Mind – In other words, meditate. Or quietly and peacefully contemplate. It is often said that an overactive mind puts a barrier between you and Life Force Energy, preventing it from connecting with you. When your mind is still the good energy automatically flows in. The Universe will connect with you and send you what you need. Here you don’t need to do anything – be still and let it happen.
- Surround Yourself with Good Energy – This is of course where Life Harmony Energies comes into your life. We have lots of tools to bring positive energy into you, your environment, and the food and drinks you put into your body. Surrounding yourself with all this high energy will help your life vibrate at a higher, better frequency.
And that’s all there is to it. Use these tools to raise your energetic vibration and the good stuff will manifest in your life. Because the material world manifests from Life Force Energy. It’s a bit other-worldly how it works, but it does.
Try it for a while and see what happens. You’ll notice how things just start to go your way. The longer you practice it the more magic you start to see in your life. You end up shaking your head and smiling when the serendipity and “good luck” manifest for you on a regular basis.
And then if you get distracted and lose your practice for a while – which will happen to most of us now and then when the material world gets a bit hectic – keep paying attention to see what happens. You’ll likely find yourself saying or doing things you'd rather not. Things will happen in your life that you’d rather not. You’ll definitely notice the difference. So quickly get back to your practice!
Energy is everything. Put a little effort into it and watch the beauty, connection, and joy manifest in your life.
