Turn Your Attention Away / Switch the Channel


“Just as a branch has no life except it be rooted in the vine, so likewise things have no life except you be conscious of them. Just as a branch withers and dies if the sap of the vine ceases to flow towards it, so do things in your world pass away if you take your attention from them, because your attention is as the sap of life that keeps alive and sustains the things of your world.”

“To dissolve a problem that now seems so real to you all that you do is remove your attention from it”

“If you are dissatisfied with your present expression in life the only way to change it, is to take your attention away form that which seems so real to you and rise in consciousness to that which you desire to be.”

Here are some of the quotes from Neville’s book, At Your Command.

In his books, Neville talks about dropping the problem from the awareness in order to get rid of it. But what does he mean by that?

I understand that he means shift your attention from the problem to the wish fulfilled but how do you completely drop the stress/worry of it from your mind?

For eg, if person A needs money but they don’t have a job yet, while they’re pretending to be rich and live in the wish fulfilled, how do they stop worrying about the lack of money/job completely?

Another example – if person B wants to get rid of a 3p, how do they completely drop the 3P from the awareness or stop giving them attention? Do they stop acknowledging the 3P or do they pretend as though the 3P doesn’t exist?

1 ) Acknowledge that you are the creator of your reality. You can only drop what you hold. You can only allow what you believe to be possible. State your desires.

2) Rest in knowing, that life itself is now tending to it. Cope with life. Visit friends.

3 ) Find appreciation in where you are and what you do. There will always be a 3d that you want to be changed and there will always be some kind of resistance in life. That is okay. By adding appreciation, or any other kind of awareness that is uplifting ( acceptance), you dilute the strong unwanted. Being okay with where you are is your job.

Put your mind off. Literally. Put it off. Let it rest somewhere in the corner while you take a good shower. Eat a nice meal and hang out with friends. You are not your mind. Practice staying with ease in life. Stop watching news, stop watching the cash in your bank account.

Find playful ways of spending 15 minutes a day in refocusing your energies. This again does not mean you should expect everything to flip at once, nor would that be a fun ride. Watch it gradually unfold. If you feel not good its okay. accept that too. feelings of joy will gradually unfold. it will become more . Here and there, sparks of the focused energy will squirt out in 3d way before the full fledged manifestation. Feel the anticipation.

Now, go back to step 1) and rehearse each step as you go along in life. Watch what happens. Best stick with one Goal though, as you make yourself accountable and its easier to manifest that way. you see success easier.

Let’s bring things down a dimension. Your vacation home is all yours. You’ve bought it and it exists just across state. However you still need to drive there to enjoy it. Same with manifesting anything. It all exists now, simply offset in the 4th or 5th dimension.

The feelings you have living in the end could be thought of as a compass, or GPS, guiding you to your desired destination.

I’m still learning this stuff too so open to any feedback!
