Vision Boards

Jack McAdoo

Vision boards are a way to visualize your dreams and goals. They are powerful tools that help you manifest your desires by focusing on what you want in your life. Vision boards can be made with images, words or both. You can make one on your own or have someone else make it for you.

The idea behind vision boards is that they awaken the inspiration within us and help us to create the feeling of our images so we can manifest our dreams. If you can create the feeling of your image and see it in your mind as if it were already real, then you will create it in your life.

How To Use A Vision Board

Step 1: Get some magazines and cut out images from them which represent what you want in life - love, wealth, happiness.

Step 2: Paste these images onto a large poster board or piece of cardboard and arrange them into an order that makes sense to you. This could be alphabetical order or by category (i.e., money).

Step 3: Place this board where you will see it every day - on the back of your closet door or over your desk at work are two good places.

Step 4: Every time you pass by this poster look at it with new eyes - notice how beautiful each image

Step 5: Feel the image, then BE that image. Learn this feeling in your sub-conscious mind so that your conscious mind creates the reality.

Step 6: Know that you know, feel that you feel, and watch your prayers and desires be brought to reality.

Enjoy!

I AM

By Jack McAdoo

I AM the creator of all of my desires. All of life's blessings come to me with ease, joy, love, glory, and speed.

I AM a creative being — I create my life through my thoughts and feelings. My thoughts and feelings are creative forces that shape my future.

I AM now creating and manifesting the life that I desire by being aware of my thoughts and feelings in this moment.

My thoughts and feelings are creative forces that shape my future. The Law of Attraction is always at work in our lives, whether we are aware of it or not! By being aware of the thoughts and feelings we have right now, we can learn how to use them to create the life we desire.

When you are feeling good about yourself, your desires will come into manifestation more easily because you will be able to think more clearly about what you want! This also means that when you are feeling bad about yourself (feeling insecure or unworthy), your desires will not come into manifestation as easily because they may get clouded by negative emotions like fear or worry!

I am grateful for all that I have been given in this life, for each experience has made me wiser, stronger, and more loving than before.

Every day brings new opportunities for growth and learning about ourselves as individuals and as members of humanity as a whole. The more our hearts expand with compassion for others, the closer we come to understanding who we really are: beings who are connected by an essential unity that transcends all differences in appearance or form or belief or opinion or language or culture or religion or nationality or race or gender or sexual orientation or age — but instead connects us together through our shared humanity.

Go within and recite, then absolutely believe with no doubt. None.

I AM the creator of all things. I command my body to be healed and healed it is.

I AM the creator of all things. I command my mind to be calm and calm it is.

I AM the creator of all things. I command my emotions to be joyful and joyful they are.

I AM the creator of all things. I command my spirit to be at peace and at peace it is.

I AM powerful beyond measure and I create my reality with the power of my mind.

I AM the co-creator of all that is good and beautiful in my life.

I AM blessed with a healthy body and mind that functions perfectly every day.

I AM willing to receive all I need and desire from the universe and I AM grateful for it now!

I AM the creator of my own reality. I have created a world which is filled with abundance, prosperity and good health.

I AM the creator of abundance. All that I need and desire comes to me in abundance every day.

I AM the creator of prosperity. Prosperity flows into my life in many ways including spiritual, mental and financial ways.

I AM the creator of good health and vitality. My body is healthy, vital and strong so that I can enjoy this wonderful life to its fullest each day.

 


Imagination to Creation

Imagination encircles the world.

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.

Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.

I am thankful for my imagination, for it enables me to see the world in a different light and makes me realize that I am not just a small part of this universe, but an integral part of it.

I dedicate my imagination to God, because He has given me so much with which to think, imagine and dream!

 

Imagination is the beginning of all creation. You imagine what you want to create, and then you make it real. Imagination allows us to dream, to imagine things that are not currently in existence, and then to bring those dreams into reality.

The ancient Greeks had a word for this: phantasia. It means "to make visible" or "to make real." It's related to the word fantasy, which means "something that does not exist." But even though imagination can create fantasies, fantasies cannot create real-world results without imagination.

Imagination is a powerful tool — so powerful that it's often misunderstood by people who don't have much of it. They think that those who have lots of imagination are daydreamers or dreamers who don't take action in the real world. The truth is that if you want to make your life better, having more imagination is essential!

The ability to imagine something doesn't mean that you'll automatically be able to make it happen. But if you want something badly enough and put your mind into action toward making it happen, you'll usually find a way. That's how I got started in my career a musician and artist. I imagined myself doing it and then took action.

Imagination takes us to new places, new worlds, new possibilities and new experiences. It gives us the power to make things happen in our lives. Imagination is a key ingredient for success in life. If we want something badly enough, we can imagine ourselves having it already and feel satisfied with that image in our mind's eye; this feeling gives us confidence, momentum and energy to go out into the world and make it happen!

Imagination opens up doors of possibilities that were previously closed or unseen before; it gives us a vision of things we have never seen before or thought possible until now. By using our imagination as children, we are able to expand our minds and perceive more things than if we did not use it at all; this allows us to become more creative people who see things from different perspectives than others do because of their ability to explore ideas freely without fear or judgment from others or ourselves.

 


Intuition

By Jack McAdoo

 

Our intuition is an incredible resource and gift that we all have and that has been given to us so that we can live in our highest potential. Intuition is the ability to receive information, impressions, or messages from our higher selves or other levels of consciousness. It is a tool that helps us navigate life and make decisions. It's also a guide that can help us understand what's happening within ourselves and in the world around us.

Intuition is different from instinct, which is a more primal form of knowing, one that comes from our animal roots. Instincts are often used in survival situations; however, intuition goes beyond survival and into realms of spiritual connection and universal wisdom. Intuition can also be called "gut feelings," "hunch," "sixth sense" or "inner knowing."

Intuition is the ability to know something without any logical explanation, to just 'know' it. It is often described as a gut feeling or gut reaction. It can be experienced as a knowing, a sense of what will happen next, or even as a physical sensation in the body. Intuition is commonly associated with the right-brain (creative) hemisphere of the brain, but both hemispheres play an important role in intuition.

Intuition is not a substitute for logic or rational thinking; nor does it contradict logic or rational thinking. Our very best decisions are made when intuition and logic are combined. Intuition works best when we are relaxed and open to new ideas; when our minds are clear and free from distraction; when we are quiet enough inside ourselves to listen to our inner voice; and when we have faith in ourselves and trust our own wisdom.

When you are living from your intuition, you are living from your higher self. You are allowing the divine consciousness within you to guide you in every aspect of your life.

Intuition is a natural function of your mind and body. It is not something you have to learn or practice. It has been with you since birth, but most people don't pay attention to it until they begin doing healing work or use energy work such as Reiki or Tai Chi.

Intuition works through receiving impressions, visions and feelings. These are subtle messages coming from the subconscious mind that show up as images, symbols and feelings in the body or mind. They can be very strong or very subtle depending on the situation at hand and how important it is for us to pay attention to them.

The more we use our intuition the stronger it gets because it becomes easier for us to recognize its signals when they come through to us in our everyday lives."


Manifest Destiny

The power of thought is an awesome thing if you know how to use it properly. The more you use it, the stronger your mind gets at manifesting things in your life. It takes time because you're breaking old habits and creating new ones, but with practice you'll get there!

Here's an exercise that will help you get started:

1) Think about something that makes you happy or excited (like getting a new job or buying something expensive). Really feel those emotions as strongly as possible by imagining all the good things that would come from achieving this goal. Do this for 5 minutes or more each day until the goal feels real to you (even if it's not yet).

2) Once you've done this enough times that you feel like it's really happening, start visualizing yourself going through the process of achieving this goal (e.g., applying for

a job, healing, a new relationship, etc.)

 Manifesting is a practice that goes back to the beginning of time. It is a way to create your reality.

The true practice of manifestation. How do we think it into existence. How long does it take?

If you are interested in manifesting, there are many resources out there that will teach you how to do it. The problem with these books is that they usually only address the surface level of what is going on in your mind when you are trying to manifest something. They don't tell you how to really get into the depths of your subconscious mind and change the thoughts and beliefs that are keeping you from what you want.

The reason why so many people have trouble manifesting their desires is because they don't know how to get into their subconscious mind and change their core beliefs about money, love, relationships etc... These core beliefs are what keep us from getting what we want in life because they are what shape our reality.

There is another reason why these books don't work for most people... They think too much! When someone starts learning about manifestation all they do is think about it all day long! They can't stop thinking about it because they're obsessed with wanting something so bad that it's all

 Manifesting is a true practice. It’s not as simple as just thinking about what you want and then getting it.

The Law of Attraction has been around for ages and it’s been taught by many different people. Manifesting is a true practice. It’s not as simple as just thinking about what you want and then getting it. It takes work, dedication and patience to manifest your desires. The Law of Attraction is real but it does take time for manifesting to work.

You may have heard that if you think of something hard enough it will come true, but that isn’t true either. Of course, if you think about something hard enough it will become your reality eventually but not immediately after you think about it.

There are no quick fix solutions when it comes to manifesting your desires because everything happens in its own time frame and on its own schedule even though we may want things to happen sooner rather than later.

When you think of something strongly enough or visualize what it would look like if you had what you wanted in your life, this brings up an emotional response inside of yourself which causes your mind to begin working overtime trying to figure out how.

Webster's definition.


Living for Wellness

Wellness is an important part of life. It's been said that we are in control of our own health, and that the only person who can make us feel better is ourselves.

But what does wellness mean?

Wellness is about taking care of yourself, not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well. It's about feeling good about yourself, being happy with your life, and being able to enjoy your day-to-day activities.

One way to help achieve wellness is through meditation. When you meditate, you learn how to focus on one thing at a time and let go of distractions. This helps reduce stress levels and improve overall mental health. You'll also find that meditation helps you sleep better at night by clearing your mind before bedtime so you can drift off peacefully instead of thinking about things like work or family issues that may be stressing you out during the day (and keeping you awake).

Meditation doesn't have to be difficult either! There are plenty of apps available nowadays that will guide users through various techniques so they don't get lost along the way - from there it's just up to whether or not they stick with it long enough for those benefits


I'm Tired

I’m tired..

By: Jack McAdoo

May 23, 2022

I feel for the mothers and children who can’t get baby formula since the Abbott Nutrition's plant in Sturgis, Michigan closed. We also can’t import formula because of the USMCA of July 2020. I am so tired of politics fucking up this country.

Im tired of people screaming at each other about former presidents who are treated as gods. Im tired of people worshiping CEO’s who give 2 shits about anyone.

I’m tired of Republicans and Democrats running cons on us and acted like we are too stupid to see truths. Im tired of Trump noise, Biden noise, McCarthy and Pelosi noise and everyone in between.

Im tired of people wanting to know each others business. Im tired of people infringing on the same rights we each have because they don’t agree with your politics. I give two fucks who you date, what you do behind closed doors in your own home. You have that right. It’s nobody’s business.

Im tired of people who are struggling for whatever reason being ridiculed by people who don’t even know them, or what the root cause even was.

I’m tired of hearing how everything offends you thinking you have to right to condemn and bash, even when the people being bashed have the same rights or have done the same, ie worked, pay taxes, breathe.

“I want my country back” people seem to forget the Native Americans are screaming the same thing but actually are the ones who actually lost their land. The Hawaiians can lay claim to the same because they were overthrown just to make it a tourist destination and strategic base. That worked out well.

Racial tensions are again in full effect. If its Mexican we scream "Build a wall"! Middle eastern, "Ban the Muslims"! Black, "BLM are terrorists"! White supremacy, "We need to help them and find the causes of their behavior". WTF has happened? We act as if the United States is the supreme warden of every country, I ran for office in Florida to help every single person I could in my county. It did not matter if there was a D, R, I, or NP next to your voting preference, I was running for you. I actually cared for everyone and just wanted everyone to feel welcomed and supported. My hope was that Pinellas County, Florida stood out as the best county in the country. I had support from every political party, but lacked the professional team around mean to win. But I put my mouth where my heart was, I fucking ran to make a difference.

I'm tired of "Power". I am so tired of Republicans, who can't figure out their identity anymore. They worship a former president while offering no platform for Americans except bullshit hoaxes and fear. I am tired of Democrats who have lost their way and have given up the fight. They have no "balls" and bitch about everything with zero action. Everything can't be free. There is no bipartisanship working for anyone at all. It's big dick time in Washington. We can't have term limits because the benefits like healthcare and pensions they receive are a dream for most Americans so that Bill will never pass.

We have 80 year olds running for office, again! Move out of the way and let some new young ideas in. Lets spark an honest movement in this country. The United States is so far behind in everything yet we call call ourselves the "greatest". Well, we are the greatest in spewing bullshit from all, or most of our leaders. Our younger candidates have ideas, dreams, and goals to set us apart again. Not the useless and blatant hypocrisy that is running wild from every congress person in DC. It would considered laughable but it is the truth. 

I’m tired of it all. But I do have faith and hope. I remember 9/11 and how we all came together. It was amazing. The energy of hate and disagreement seemed to vanish and we literally cared for each other. There was no political divide, there was American pride.

So I will continue to stay in my own lane and watch the noise of ridiculous bullshit bullying. No one is better. None of the 46 presidents are better than the other. Our past does exist and nothing we can do can change it. But we can learn from it.

Why does everything have to be an argument or political? You can’t even smile without someone getting pissed. Put your phone down. Go take a walk. Read a book, go watch kids play in a park, hunt, fish, read, camp, travel, work in a homeless food bank, take food to an elderly person, and just put your feet on some grass.

Too many people are so caught up in shit they can’t even see the peace that does exist. Too many spit hate, politics and fear with every breath, post, and dream.

With all this said, I’m tired, but…..

I’m hopeful. 

 


Fibonacci

Fibonacci

In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers or Fibonacci sequence are the numbers in the following integer sequence: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144...
If we sum the squares of any series of Fibonacci numbers, they will equal the last Fibonacci number used in the series times the next Fibonacci number. This property results in the Fibonacci spiral, based on the following progression and properties of the Fibonacci series.The Fibonacci spiral gets closer and closer to a Golden Spiral as it increases in size because of the ratio of each number in the Fibonacci series to the one before it converges on Phi, 1.618, as the series progresses. Beginning with Zero, then 1, it then moves on to the next number, as such : 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 2+1=3, 3+2=5, 5+3=8 and so forth.
When we apply this mathematical formula to quantify or measure the movement of energy or Consciousness within time or space, the Fibonacci Spiral loses its connection going back to the Zero point or Source, instead the sequence uses the previous number to add into itself to get to the next higher number of the sequence. The Fibonacci Spiral illustrates the math used to perpetuate the war over energy, therefore the consciousness suppression on the earth, as when the sequence grows in number or size, it is due to the consumption of the previous values in order to grow itself larger.The larger it gets, the more it progressively moves out and away from the Krystal Spiral of the original core manifestation body or divine template body, as it expands. (See Consumptive Modeling). Therefore the Fibonacci Spiral is a model of Metatronic Reversal in the consciousness fields that ultimately attach like a parasite to a living host, collecting waste products, such as accumulating toxic Miasma fields which form into the Qlippoth or Adverse Sephiroth, in the Phantom Matrix to infect the Universal Tree of Life.
The Fibonacci spiral sequence emerges from a point of attachment, which is a parasitic in action, to attach itself to a living form, consuming everything in its path, to which it progressively loses contact when it continually expands itself. It grows and expands its consciousness through the consumption and eventual annihilation of that which it had attached itself to and had existed previously. This is what quantifies the actions of a Fallen race or species, such as the Black Suns Regressive or Belial groups.
