I never resonated with The Secret, and in particular, the Abraham-Hicks material. It’s not that I didn’t believe in the law of attraction. It was more about the damage to self-esteem that I witnessed in my clients when it did not work for them. Also, I despise any system that claims to be the end-all-be-all for everything. The only concept that might apply for the end-all-be-all is death; and nowadays I doubt even that. Furthermore, these approaches did not honor the role of other worldly beings; call them angels, gods, spirit guides, ancestors, etc. What matters is acknowledging the co-creating process between you and these other worldly beings.
As some of you know, I love GaiamTV.com. One of my favorite hosts on this site is Regina Meredith. Last month I watched her interview with Jean Slatter, the author of Hiring the Heavens: A Practical Guide to Developing Working Relationships with the Spirits of Creation and became very excited about her simple no nonsense approach to manifesting.
Jean Slatter’s drawing about the relationship of you and the other worldly beings is key to understanding how and why her “Hiring the Heavens” process works. (See drawing.) The stars are staff from heaven assisting you in your pursuits.
She explains how to hire a temporary spiritual agent for the small tasks; and how to form a spiritual committee for the larger projects. Using the simplicity of Asking and Receiving which reminds me of Matthew 7:7 — Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you — Slatter suggests only a few guidelines to assist in your “Hiring the Heavens” process: Be Playful, Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude, Intend for the Highest Good, Feel your Wants, Have Faith, Stay Unattached and Be Patient.
About Converising with your spiritual staff Slatter wrote:
Just be open and aware, listen for what your spiritual workforce is trying to tell you. Discover your mode of receiving inspiration. Pay attention to the synchronicities and seeming coincidences that show up, and then follow their lead. It will begin happening with such frequency that you’ll have no doubt Spirit is involved. You’ll just know. It’s like a friend talking to you. The transmissions will be as clear as day.
As soon as I began following Slatter’s “Hiring the Heavens” process my manifesting efficacy increased remarkably. I can’t recommend her book enough.
May you all begin hiring your spiritual staff and manifest all you desire in life that has the most benevolent outcome for all.
