Every invention in our world was first a thought. Poems, music, novels, all first began as a thought in someone’s head and then materialized onto paper. Just from this knowledge alone you are brought the realization that all things first begin as thoughts and are then brought into the physical world by people just like you and me. So now you can understand this, does it not make sense to you that if we all dream a dream that is the same such as dreaming for a more peaceful world, that together we can make it happen? Remember; all physical things first began as a thought. If we each hold this thought and believe it can happen with all our hearts then it is inevitable that we can make it a reality for all.
I began delving deeper into the manifestation practice again just recently. I began driving long distances and wanted to listen to something that would make the journey more enjoyable so I thought why not listen to the greats such as Wayne Dyer and Louise Hay? So I began listening and they helped me to remember all the things that I knew but had forgotten but this time I felt a shift taking place within me and all the pieces of the puzzle fell into place so suddenly that I was hit by one revelation after another.
For the longest time I’ve been feeling that I want to make a difference; while I love being a healer and metaphysical teacher I felt I should be doing more. I wanted to make a BIG difference but I had no idea where to start. I am the kind of person that wants to get right to the root and to focus on the root rather than the symptom and understood that the only way to change this world is by bringing awareness but how can I share awareness when not everyone is on the same level of understanding? How could I teach people in simple terms that would help anyone, whatever their level of enlightenment, how easy it is to bring a thought into the material world?
I was pondering this during another journey and suddenly the song ‘Imagine’ started playing in my head and I understood that this was a message from my guides. I heard the same verse over and over again:
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
That was it! We are ALL dreamers but we can bring those dreams from being invisible into the visible! Together we can manifest a world that we wanted to live in and though many of us have had this dream, it truly struck home that this can work, that all I had to do is share to others how simple is to make this dream come true.
I suddenly saw the universe moving in unison as all factors shifted into alignment and the title of this article came to my head: The I AM Movement. We just have to imagine the world that we wanted and the world we wanted would happen but then I remembered that there are people who lack the courage to have faith in their own ability to manifest and it was then that I heard Wayne Dyer speak about how we need to understand who we are in order to manifest and by doing this we understand WHERE the power of manifestation comes from.
He mentioned verses in the bible which I had already understood to mean what he explained them to mean but again BOOM! It TRULY became real for me! And this would be the tool that I could use to explain to others how anything they put their minds to can be brought forward into our world.
For so many years I have used the ancient texts to express to people that all of us, every single human being is a god for we ARE God; God is us and we are God. I am not speaking about the false God that is used by religious teachers who give their God an ego and human attributes; I am speaking about THE God that we are all connected to and which connects everything in the universe to each other. I am speaking about the true God that is LOVE.
The texts that I will use for you in this article are taken both from the old Testament and the New Testament and I will emphasize the words so that you may understand them so clearly. So let’s get started.
Moses and the Burning Bush
Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”
When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
And Moses said, “Here I AM.”
“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Then he said, “I AM the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. So now, go. I AM sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”
But Moses said to God, “Who AM I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”
And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”
Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”
God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”
Here we can see that Moses identifies himself with the I AM by calling himself I AM. In all languages we use the term ‘I am’ in many things such as I am hungry, I am cold, I am happy. But know that whenever we are using the title I AM we are aligning ourselves with God and should we say I AM tired then we are declaring that God is also tired for we are God and God is us!
How was it that God brought this world into the material? By thought alone! For it is also expressed in the Kybalion where it states that God or I AM who is The ALL, is within the ALL; if the ALL is the ALL then how could there be anything outside the ALL which came into our world? If the ALL had nothing outside of itself to create then how could the ALL create? And the answer is through THOUGHT. So if we are ALSO The ALL then so can WE create by thinking it into existence! There is nothing separating ourselves from the ALL apart from our beliefs and if we understand and believe that WE are ALSO the ALL then we too have the same abilities!
Let us move on now to where Jesus speaks about humans being gods:
The Unbelief of the Jews
Jesus was teaching that he and the Father/God are one which angered a group of Jews nearby who were listening and who became enraged:
At this, the Jews again picked up stones to stone Him. But Jesus responded, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone Me?”
“We are not stoning You for any good work,” said the Jews, “but for blasphemy, because You, who are a man, declare Yourself to be God.”
“Is it not written in your Law: ‘I have said you are gods? If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and the Scripture cannot be broken— then what about the One whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world? How then can you accuse Me of blasphemy for stating that I AM the Son of God?
If I am not doing the works of My Father, then do not believe Me. But if I am doing them, even though you do not believe Me, believe the works themselves, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father.”
Jesus was referring to Psalm 82:6 where God says, I have said,
“You are gods; you are all sons of the Most High.”
God had already declared that humans are gods and the Jews accused Jesus of blasphemy simply for living the words stated in the old Testament.
We have been told numerous times that we are the I AM; we are gods; we are made in the image of I AM and therefore we have the ability to ACT like the I AM. remember the beginning of this article where I explained that everything that comes into existence was FIRST a THOUGHT! Thoughts have been scientifically proven to be made up of energy and it is also proven that energy travels! There is not much of a divide between the etheric world and the material world; it does not take much for a thought to cross from the invisible world to the visible world; all it takes is faith and if you believe it with all your heart and soul then the universe supports your intention of materializing your thoughts!
A few years ago I was having a down day and asking the gods for advice. I explained to them that many atheists or those who have shut themselves down from the divine ask me “Where are your gods now?!” in response to all the terrible things that are happening on our planet. I asked them, “I know you are real but HOW can I express to others that you exist???” the gods told me,
“Daughter, place your hand on your heart and say, ‘Here I AM.”
Their message is not only expressing that they are in our hearts but my hand is resting on MYSELF! HERE I AM! I AM THAT I AM! I AM proof that the divine exists and God, the gods, the I AM resides and is expressed in me and in ALL of humanity!
And so I ask you each, from the presence of the I AM in me to the presence of the I AM in you to believe and have faith and join me in manifesting a world we came here to create. I know that we can do this if we just believe that there are no boundaries between ourselves and I AM.
All my love is with you. Please share this article wherever you can so that we can spread the word and make our dream come true! Just imagine! This is enough!
