My New Website Is Up!

Hello Everyone!

It’s been a long time since I posted anything new here.

It’s because I have been at work “behind the scenes” on my new website and the product on it.

Please visit it and let me know what you think. (You can comment directly on the page, or use the “Contact Charles Stewart” link.)  http://CharlesStewartEnterprises.com

There is a video on the site I created for you to watch (it is 14 minutes long) because it is not only self-empowering for you, it will remind you of why you were born.

After watching the video, there is a “Free Introductory Downloads” link for you to get your free downloads to learn even more.

I wish you all the best in the new 2012 year,

How Are You Doing?

 Hello Everyone!

I wanted to ask this question of you because I’m curious to know if you are treating your life in a manner which is “respectful of your best wishes…”

Many individuals are lacking in the ongoing motivation necessary to keep them inspired to grow their best versions of themselves. How do you change this? And why is it important to do so?

No one will ever be satisfied with things always staying the way they are presently in their lives (and if they are, it is only a matter of time before this change occurs for them.) Sometimes, it can be difficult at best to try and bring realistic positive and constructive changes into your life; especially with something as major or life-altering as a career change. Somehow, someway, you must find that which helps you (in any way at all) to stay motivated to strive for betterment in your life.

If you fall into the trap of getting comfortable with things staying the way they are, be aware that you may be setting yourself up for having a life in which you find yourself reacting to the changes life brings you on its own terms; as opposed to a life in which you have a direct hand in creating the life-changes which you then choose to react to.  

If the difference between these two “life orientations” seem insignificant to you, then most likely, I am not talking to you; for those of you who do understand what it is I am trying to say, I will continue. There are so many different things one can do to bring about “motivation to strive,” that the words nearly forsake me now; however, I will try.

Improve the quality of a relationship important to you; whether intrapersonal or interpersonal. Exercise, “feed your mind,” satisfy your curiosity, enjoy time with your children (or significant other,) learn more about the area of interest you are interested in, listen to music, read, walk, explore, shop, work a hobby, spend time with a friend, clean and organize your home, I mean really, the list just goes on and on…

By doing these things, you will automatically free up a part of your conscious mind which will clearly come to your aid in your quest; whatever that may be. No matter who you are, and no matter what you choose to do with your life, there is something you have within you, which you must find a way to share with the world around you; for in many ways, this is why you are here.   

It is true that the “working out” of expressing this in your life may not be the time at present for it to “hatch in the world,” so to speak. However, it matters not, for it is the work that you choose to do moving forward in your life that is of the most importance here, not the “current state of affairs.” Everything you choose to do (or not to do) is part of all that is necessary for this quality of your own life to improve.

There is no special magic in my words here; it is not anything new, which has never been said before in countless ways, over and over again. However, it is my dearest hope that there is someone out there who is in a place in their life where they can find some value in receiving this material, in this way, and at this time.

The person’s help you need the most is your own. Yes, you may receive help from others in bringing about positive and constructive changes into your life; however, YOU are the deciding factor. Their help must “fit you,” it must “fit your vision”; it must be something which “feels good” and is a “natural development for you.”

It will be easier for you to grow in certain directions over others; find those directions and go to work on them. Even if a “mistake is made,” take heart and simply regard yourself as a “genius artist in the making.” The simplest task can reward you with the knowing that you are “self-actualizing.” When you experience it, you will know it; and that knowing will help guide you into the person you were meant to become.

I wish you all the best in your journey,

  Worry, fear, and doubt are not only detrimental to good health; they are also detrimental to the achievement of your life goals. Don’t forget that play is a very important component in personal growth and development, as well as your own fulfillment. Every individual human soul can sense the direction that they are most inclined, as inspiration or even flashes of insight will nudge them towards certain activities over others.
   It will be easier and more delightful to move and grow in certain directions over others. By looking at your own life, you can quite easily discern, or if you will, perceive in what area your abilities may lie. This is done by following the shape of your own impulses and inclinations.
  You cannot learn about yourself by studying what is expected of you by others – rather, it is done by asking yourself what you expect of yourself, and determining in what direction your abilities lie.
  Your beliefs are that which you form your life around. Beliefs are the strong ideas you hold within you about the nature of reality; they are reinforced by your imagination and emotions in various ways. And, since it is your beliefs that help bring about the reality that you will find yourself experiencing in life, then give some thought to the following:
   In the same way that a child will play at being an adult long before becoming one, you too can play with beliefs that are more desirable while you grow into that more beneficial picture. To start over or to change one’s beliefs about what is possible and what is not, is a very bold endeavor or task. Do not quit or give up just because sometimes you may become discouraged or disillusioned during the process.
   Do not be hard on yourself if whatever you attempt fails, because sometimes things you will attempt are actually doomed to fail. One reason for this is that there are times where you must first create the conditions from which your most successful creations will emerge.
  You are always in a state of becoming, because you are learning the art of self-actualization. You will draw to yourself in life, those very qualities upon which you choose to concentrate your attention. Remember that in negative situations in life, it is more your own emotions and perceptions that are the issue, and not the circumstances that seem to bring these things about.
  The experiences of your life are not thrust upon you by any outside force or agency. Instead, they are formed faithfully according to your own emotions and beliefs. Sometimes in life, knowing which direction is not you, is as good as knowing which direction is you. All experiences can and will be used by you to your eventual advantage during your lifetime and “beyond.”
  It is simply not possible to choose not doing something with your life. For example, a choice to stay home in bed and not do anything is still a choice to do just that. It is your choices that bring about the experiences you will have in your life.
  If the experiences you find yourself in are unsatisfactory, realize that it was choice that got you where you are, and it is choice that will get you out. To feel overwhelmed or burdened by choice does not serve you well; for it is choice that is the solution to your problems.
   To be most satisfied (and successful) with whatever is chosen to be focused upon in your life, it almost becomes necessary for you to try to become more aware of the beliefs that you do hold within your own psychological make-up.
  For instance, some people are highly motivated or creatively driven to achieve or accomplish something in their life, while at the same time, more or less, they also believe that it is not good to make themselves too exposed,  known, or to draw attention to themselves excessively. Therefore, to express their abilities or ideas is not encouraged. In these cases, the individual is operating at cross-purposes with themselves, and this can manifest in many different ways, not so good; all the while wondering why their life is dissatisfactory.
   Sometimes the beliefs that one holds are not perceived as being about reality, but rather, as being actual conditions of reality. The realization of this distinction is of great use in helping to achieve self-actualization during the lifetime.
  When the mind begins to realize the directing influence it has upon the experiences in the life, amazing and beneficial changes can start to occur. Does this suggest anything to you?

Greetings Everyone!

There are those in life who wish or desire for things to be different in a better way.  These particular individuals know very clearly the limitations or dissatisfactions of the reality they face every single day of their lives.

What these same individuals are often not aware of is that what they see as “reality,” is actually something which has come about because of their own creation, over time, “directed” by the ideas they have within their own psychological and emotional makeup. Day by day, small seemingly insignificant choices “build up over time” into the experiences they now perceive as reality.     

Try as one might, often you would never convince them that their “beliefs about reality” are actually playing a very significant role in helping cause that reality they perceive. Until this basic concept can be accepted, then they are forever at the mercy of their life’s experiences happening to them of their own accord. They think reality is first, and then their ideas come second; to change this is the key.

Change does not come about “overnight.” It is a gradual process over time which grows you to the reality you will “now experience.” Your reality also involves the reality of others around you, so you are not alone in this creation; except for your “personal version” of it.

Until one can consider the possibility of “the ideas coming first” and then “the experiences follow,” they will continue to perceive and interpret a reality which exists independent of their personal involvement.

Even as one makes changes to the ideas which they hold to be true, the “old life” will take time to change into the “new life.” Also, where there is “overlap” between the two, disorientation can occur; however, stay the course, for in time the “wisdom” in your life changes will begin to show themselves. As the mind becomes more aware of its “directing influence” upon your life, amazing things can occur.

To grow one’s ideas of changing their life for the better, is to “remove the security blanket” of their old established life. When one steps outside of their “comfort zone,” it does indeed stretch them developmentally; and this is not a comfortable place to be. However, we all know the wisdom in growing and developing a human being beyond its “childhood.” In many ways, this is no different for the “seasoned life veteran.”

When one is absolutely convinced that their present life reality is “all there is,” then know that you are looking at one who is not working with the basic nature of their being; how this can “play out” is as varied as there are souls on our planet.  However, it is clear that until these individuals choose to change their thinking, they will then slowly begin the process of a life “which becomes less and less over time.”

It does not have to be this way. Be kind to yourself and to others as you choose every single day to do something to grow yourself developmentally; no matter how small or insignificant. Find a reason to feel good and deserving of good changes to come into your life over time; it is your “birth right.”

The greatest thing you can do with your life is to share it with others. You came here to this lifetime you know as your own, to find a way to express the gifts you have within you; when you do this, you will not only feel good, you will be rewarded, and you will making the world a better place to live in for us all.

What is it about you that is special? If you do not know, find it out; it is within you. Find a way to start developing this method of your expression. Over time, the wisdom of all this will become increasingly clearer to you. The world is waiting and in need of what you have within you to share; what does it take to get this message through to you???

On one end of the spectrum, we have those souls who are chasing their business success, while neglecting their spiritual being. For these souls we wonder; will there be any regrets at the end of their lives?

On the other end of the spectrum, we have those souls who are expressing their spirituality, and feeling good for not “getting caught up in materialism.” However, sometimes there is that within them which wonders, why there should be a problem with material success?

Are these two worlds incompatible? It is this subject matter which will be the purpose of this article.

Young souls chase materialism, while older souls pursue spiritual matters; what if each learned they could actually be benefitted and enriched from both?

I’m quite sure you can understand the concept of “what goes around, comes around,”  “as you sow, you reap,” or any other such expression. The “rules in life” work the same either way. If one concentrates upon difficulty, insecurity, and lack, these will increase in number. If one concentrates upon joy, security, and abundance, these will increase in the life.

It serves no good purpose to say that your senses will show you a different picture than what you may hold in mind; for if the desired reality was already here, there would be no reason to create or develop it; would there?

You are more than what you think yourself to be. No matter how you regard yourself beyond the parameters of your current physical self, you are indeed much more than you know. When you only concentrate upon the physical, you cut yourself off from part of what you can benefit from. When you concentrate only upon the spiritual, the reverse is true.

If you could find a way to bring more of your “whole-self” into that which you work upon daily in your lives, you would find that your life has a great deal to teach you about your “whole-self.” And of course, I mean this in only the best of ways for you.

When you deny parts of yourself, you will only meet others in life, which do the same; even if you do not see this, or you are unaware of it. Never compare where you are at in your life to others, for you may have no realistic idea of just what has gone on in their lives before “your perceptions entered the picture.”

I am not saying not to benefit from the teachings of others, I am saying do not be “hard on yourself,” for not being at someplace you determine you would like to be “right now.” Find a way to feel good as you can for the “process of your life’s work you are currently involved with.”

  It is futile to compare yourself to others, for in so doing you try to emulate qualities that are theirs and not yours. This only serves to deny the vision of your own miraculous being. Once you start doing this, there is no end to it. You will always find someone who is more talented than you are in some way, and so you will continue to be dissatisfied.

 Instead, working with your own beliefs, take it for granted that your life is important; begin with it where you are right now. Do not deride yourself because you have not yet reached some “great ideal.” Rather, use those talents that you do have to the best of your ability, knowing that in them lies your own individual fulfillment. Any help that you give to others will come through the creative utilization of your own characteristics and no one else’s.

For the more spiritually minded of you, money is not a bad thing; it is merely a resource which can be used to great benefit in your life. There is no end to how “material success” can be used to perpetuate your positive and constructive influence in the world.

For the more “materially oriented” of you, do not underestimate the power that spirituality can bring into “increasing your bottom line.” The connections with others this causes you, brings a “customer loyalty” and “warm market mentality” like you cannot imagine.

 You can choose to project your problems or abilities outward onto others, or into other “avenues of activity.” However, until you realize that you form your reality and that your power resides in your present moments, you will not be able to solve your problems, nor utilize your strengths properly.

One small example; if you are poor and are trying to maintain a new belief system in abundance, give away some small amount of money (or in whatever manner suits you) act as if you have more than you actually do. You must show yourself that you are willing to accept a change, by responding to your new beliefs in such a way as to neurologically “get the message across.”

Since your conscious beliefs determine those unconscious functions that bring about your personal experience, your first step is to enlarge those beliefs. Whatever talents you sense you have, can only be developed if you are determined to do so. The simple act of decision will automatically activate “unconscious mechanisms.”

 You must consciously seize the direction for your own life. When you alter your conscious beliefs through determined effort, then a period of time is necessary while your neurological structure learns to adjust itself to the new preferred situation. The “intensity” of your desire will help bring the desired experiences to you.

 By “intensity,” I do not mean anything at all to do with feelings, or emotional energy -per se- but more a matter of getting to the point where you “know” that the experience is indeed “near at hand” in a matter-of-fact-way. As you concentrate upon what you want, feel no conflict between what you have and what you desire. One does not contradict the other; each is seen as a reflection of belief in daily life – that is all.
  
And yes, it took time to build the “old picture,” and so now, it will be the same again. It will take time to build the “new picture.”  Concentration upon the old picture while fearing the non-manifestation of the new picture, will of course, not serve you well.

 Now, it is true that as you change your belief system, it may bring you unexpected and uneasy interactions with some others to whom you regularly relate. For instance, whether it is a family member, close friend, associate, or even a social group you belong to, as you change your belief system, it will be “uncomfortable” to them, to say the least.

 Even if they do not know why, they will sense that you are “different somehow.” You will not be playing the same “game” and/or “part” anymore. You are moving in a new direction now, and they may not want to follow you, or are not sure how to. No matter If you choose to “move on,” or if they do (in either case,) there will be others who come into your life to “take their place.”

 Someone new will play the role for them that you used to, and as for you, the sense of “loss” will be compensated for by those who “appreciate” what you are trying to become, as they newly come into your life. Do not underestimate the significance this impact can have on your life; intimate behavior and social interactions are both deeply affected by this. Still, through it all, you must be what you can become.This is why you are here. Any determined change of direction on your part is felt by others, and they will react in their own fashions. You are setting out to experience the most fulfilled reality that you can. Even though you may want others to change, it is yourself that you must change, not them; this is the only way that change will be effected. Some will understand and support what you are attempting to do.

 However, know that there will be those who “need” the old framework, and someone (if not you) to play the part you played before. Do not allow this to hold you back from being what you can become, as there are others who are “waiting for you to interact with them.” As a metaphor, think here of the music in a scale. As you move up the scale to a new “octave,” there will be others who will add to add to your “melody.”

There is so much more here to share, but I will stop for now. I encourage you to challenge yourself to grow in a new way which incorporates your “whole-self,” (meaning your “material side” and your “spiritual side.”)

Enjoy the changes coming into your life,

Charles Stewart
