We have all heard it said, that our thoughts create our reality. We have all heard the spiritual teachers and metaphysical practitioners tell us that we need to hold the right thoughts in our minds, give no thought to the negative, and get out of our own way. But how do we do this? How do we begin to build our career path metaphysically, without stumbling over such things as fear and doubt. One very simple technique is to meditate. You do not have to do this for long periods of time, if you can do it for 5 to 10 minutes once or twice a day, that is surely enough. The technique goes like this; take 2 to 5 minutes to focus on what you really want, then, sit back in a comfortable chair and close your eyes. Concentrate on either your breath, or just the peaceful silence in the room around you. Think of nothing else, if an intrusive thought does come across your mind, just gently push it aside and go back to concentrating on your breath or the peaceful silence.
You may want to set a timer so that you do not go over the time allotted for this kind of meditation. Once the timer goes off, slowly open your eyes and just give thanks for the thing that you have asked for. If you find yourself dozing off during your meditation time, don't beat yourself up over it; you can always try to stay awake the next time. Besides, even if you do fall asleep, you've given your mind time to rest and just be still for a few moments without entering into worry or how your career goals will manifest. The most difficult part of this technique is to try to keep your mind from entering into fear and doubt during the day when you're not meditating. Try not to indulge yourself in such thoughts. If they do come to mind, just use the same technique you used in meditation, and just gently push those thoughts aside. This simple technique is just one way to focus on what it is that you do want, while staying out of your own way and not tripping yourself up with stress and doubt. Try this simple meditation exercise, and see for yourself if it does not clear the path of many obstacles when it comes to building your personal career.
