Learn The Secrets To Win At Life

The Life Force That Governs Our Universe

Have you ever watched a bag of popcorn in the microwave?

The bags are relatively flat with kernels creating indentations. We normally place the bag on the microwave plate, hit the on button and watch the bag spin around and around. Then we hear the first kernel pop. Then we hear a succession of popping sounds, until the bag explodes and burgeons into a super-size bag of fully “evolved” popcorn. Aside from a few hard kernels left at the bottom of the bag, the popcorn is light, fluffy and ready to eat.

Okay, so if you’ve read this far, you are probably waiting for me to make my point.

I’ll say it in plain and simple English so everyone can easily understand. The energy that is used in a microwave oven is much like the life force that governs our Universe. Wait a minute! Before you decide to scoff and leave this page, just give me a few more sentences so I can further make my point.

Everyone has heard of the Big Bang Theory.

It is a cosmological model that explains the early development of the Universe. Scientist and even some spiritualist agree that the earth was created through an explosion or a series of explosions that created clumps of matter. These clumps of matter began to develop as the Universe began to rapidly expand. Consequently, the Universe is still expanding at an incredibly rapid pace. What is causing this to happen? It is a little something called heat. Yes, Chango’s heat!

I never get tired of saying that the physical world mirrors the spiritual world.

In space much like a microwave; there are waves of energy that cause planets to develop, just as the radio waves of the microwave cause kernels to pop. You’ve noticed that the kernels inside of a bag of popcorn can’t all pop at the same time. This is because the heat from the radio waves actually cooks the food from the inside out. The heat creates friction, where atoms inside the food start to rub together, enabling the food to cook faster.

The life force that governs our Universe works much in the same way.

It “cooks us from the inside out.” It is the electric pulse that runs through our veins and allows us to experience miracles such as Kundalini, spirit possession, self-healing and the healing of others. When this electric life force is pulsating through us, other people feel the friction. This creates the magnetism or gravitational pull that is known as the Law of Attraction. This friction also enables good things to rub off on others creating a feeling of inspiration.

The biggest problem that people have is that they don’t hit the on button.

They go through life burning all their own energy. They fail to realize that there is an infinite source that they can tap into. The life force is the secret to manifesting your desires, to kicking bad habits, to overcoming obstacles and adversity. So press the on button and relax as your soul starts to pop. Failure to do so may result in you being like the hard-uneaten kernel that is stuck at the bottom of the popcorn bag.


Negative Energy Balance

I’ve done it. I’ve come back from long vacations and business trips and had to throw away virtually everything in my refrigerator.

I am attacked by the smell when I first walk into the door. I plug my nose and survey the damage. There’s dry curdled milk, brown wet lettuce that is still tucked away in its bag, wrinkled tomatoes, and soiled ground beef that smells like rotten eggs. I hurriedly shove all the food in a bulk scented trash bag. But the odor from the distillation of rotting foods lingers behind like a bad after-taste.

Then, I feel guilty. My Caribbean relatives would be so disappointed in me.

I didn’t know what would kill me first, the rotten foods, or my relatives who never let anything go bad. They hated wasting money, and they would always preach to me that I have to eat food before it goes bad. But how can I possibly explain to them that food going bad is really inevitable? How can I explain the deterioration of food is analogous to the deterioration of life, and that it is nature’s way of evolving?

In Ifa, we talk about reciprocity. It is a process of give and take.

Nature gives us so much, in particularly food. But if we don’t eat the food, then nature will take it away. Sounds pretty easy right? Well, it’s about to get a little complicated. A small piece of fruit has a great deal of free energy. Our digestive system converts this energy into sugars and then into glucose. Glucose is converted into motion and our muscles use this for exercise and physical movement. According to the laws of science, the intake and outtake of energy should be the same. In spiritual terms this concept is called balance.

When food sits for a while, bacteria starts to take over like a gangster in a bad neighborhood.

I would think that most foods have a little bit of bacteria. However, the bacteria start to spread at an alarming rate through collisions. These collisions enable atoms in the bacteria to communicate and then infect other atoms. This is what causes food and energy to go bad.

The elders in Yoruba and other African religions say that life and death is born through chaos.

This is very much true. For chaos is representative of the collisions of atoms and the spread of information or disease. So in a nutshell, negative energy, is energy gone bad. Scientist calls this kind of energy mutations. For these forms of energy have failed to evolve. Or they have failed to be converted into other types of energy that are beneficial to the evolution of the human species. For example, the food that rotted in my refrigerator could have been used to feed several starving children in Africa.

The deterioration of energy explains the aging process, sickness, and the tipping points that cause people to sway one way or another.

We can see this with celebrities who have everything, and suddenly their lives and careers just crumple. We ask ourselves. What happened? Now we can understand that many of these people were suffering from deep-seated issues. These issues spread like a bacteria, infecting their mind, body, and soul.

There is a great deal of validity to the phrase “God giveth and God taketh away.”

We are all giving a certain amount of energy to fulfill our purpose in life.
However, if we don’t work to fulfill our purpose, bacteria will start to spread and eat us up alive. This is all part of natures’ plan. Just remember, energy is very much like the food in your refrigerator, you have to eat it, before it goes bad.


Money Is The New Form Of Energy

Why is it that so many of us are on this endless cycle of wealth and poverty?

There are times when we are living it up, loving life, and spending money as if we’ve won a lifetime supply. Then there are times when we are digging in the creases of our couches for coins. It is not just the common folk who suffer from the cycle of wealth and poverty. Celebrities go through it too. We’ve seen dozens of A-list actors playing the lead in huge blockbuster movies one day, and then bussing tables the next. Why does this happen? What is the secret to maintaining wealth? Honestly, I can’t really answer that question. But, I’ll just take a wild guess. The secret to gaining and maintaining wealth is to make the right exchanges.

I worked my way through college working nightshifts in a casino.

After three years, I was promoted and worked in the high roller section. I watched as people played one hundred dollar slot machines without even blinking an eye. My co-workers needed me to get tips from our customers, I thought it was because I was a smooth talker. Later, I learned that rich people have a certain mentality when it comes to giving money to the poor/workers. Number one, they never throw good money after bad. Number two; they never give money to poor people, because they believe that it makes them poorer. In fact, they were only tipping me because they felt that I had potential. My coworkers had families and mortgages and yet, they couldn’t get anything from these rich folks.

It wasn’t until later in life that I learned the lesson that they were trying to teach me.

Money is not earned, it is not given, it is exchanged. People who are wealthy and maintain their wealth are able to make viable exchanges. They put their money into things that have potential. Or into vehicles that circulate and allow money to increase its value. I know, it sounds a lot like the stock market. But if we treated all of our money transactions as if we were trading stock, we would be much more careful.

Lets revert back to the lottery winners.

They have third cousins coming to them asking for money. They buy their mom a house trimmed in gold, and buy their father a luxury car, they elect to support their cousin’s business venture, and dozens of other people. Then it happens, these people become dependent on the lottery winners. They get lazy, they may even become deadbeats or losers, and they don’t really respect or appreciate anything that was given to them. In fact, bankrupt lottery winners claim that they not only lost all of their money, but their relationships as well. These people tend to fall off when the party is over and the money is gone.

These kinds of exchanges are bad because they bring out the worse in people.

Sadly, many people believe that they are helping others by giving them money. In truth, supporting people who refuse to be self-sufficient is like putting your money in a dwindling stock. You might just have the money now, but sooner or later, you’re going to lose it. Money is the manifestation of energy. Energy has to always move, if it is not moving upward, it is moving downward. So treat money like it is an exchange and be sure that it turns a profit for you, your family, or the community as a whole.
