What’s the difference between awareness and understanding?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Dillon M.

Neagle Code Question

Dear David,

I’ve heard you talk about awareness and understanding. Can you explain the difference between the two? I’m confused.

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

Absolutely!

All knowledge that ever was or will be is present now and always has been.

This means that when we lived in caves, the knowledge for creating the iPhone, the computer, the space shuttle and everything else that has been formed by human hands was there.

Likewise, the knowledge to invent things that will exist in the future is here right now as well.

What didn’t exist then, and doesn’t exist now for future inventions, is our awareness of that knowledge.

Awareness means we perceive the fact of something.

When we became aware of the knowledge related to creating the wheel, for instance, we were able to bring that into form.

Now, understanding is a different thing altogether.

Understanding involves comprehension, perspective, context and wisdom.

For instance, our ancestors gained awareness of the knowledge required to create the wheel, but they surely lacked the understanding of how that invention would revolutionize their way of life.

We lack understanding as well.

We lack understanding of the impact of our inventions, but more to the point, we lack the understanding of the Laws of the Universe.

Can you show me how the Laws are always working?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Dear David,

It’s clear that you have a vast understanding of Universal Law… I think I understand the basic notion, but can you give an example of one of the Laws and how people manage to fudge it up?

I get that gravity is constant and is always working to pull things toward the center of the Earth, and we work within that law by creating parachutes or railings. I can see gravity at work, but don’t think I can see the Laws at work.

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

Fantastic question!!!

I think I’ll use the Law of Perpetual Transmutation as an example in this explanation.

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation states that everything in the Universe is constantly moving from non-form to form and back to non-form again.

We often call this non-form stuff of the Universe “energy.”

It is from this formless energy that we manifest our ideas, projects, programs, businesses, books, paintings—everything that we bring into existence.

If you understand this law and work within it correctly, it follows that you can harness that formless energy and create from it whatever forms you desire.

You may have heard it stated by James Allen as, “All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts.”

That’s the exciting promise of The Law of Perpetual Transmutation.

But it’s a promise that is rarely realized to its full potential because so many of us harbor mistaken notions that get in our way.

For example, I have noticed that people who fear the Devil often discount and distrust the stirrings of Spirit within them, which come in the form of desire, especially when Spirit is saying something different from what they’ve been taught.

So if you’re a woman who’s been taught that you don’t have much value, and you feel drawn to accomplish a powerful project, you’re likely to deny your desire, calling it pride or sin.

If, on the other hand, you listen to your desire, rather than questioning or denying or second-guessing its inspiration within you, you are much more likely to follow its direction where it leads.

You can fight Spirit and defy the Law of Perpetual Transmutation, or you can collaborate with them to fulfill your purpose and manifest your wildest dreams.

Why the Laws of the Universe are ALWAYS working

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Braden M.

Neagle Code Question

Dear David,

In your last article you said that the Laws are ALWAYS working. Can you explain what you mean by that?

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

I’d be happy to answer that question, Braden!

You’re operating under the Laws of the Universe whether you’re conscious of them or not.

You can’t manifest anything in this world without application of every one of the Laws. And you’re manifesting every second of every day….all the good and all the bad.

That’s why they’re called the Laws of the Universe.

Nothing escapes them.

Consider the Law of Gravity. Anything that is heavier than air is pulled toward the center of the earth.

It does not matter if you’re a scientist and you understand exactly how gravity works or if you’re completely ignorant of it.

If you fall down, you’re still going down, because we’re all subject to that law.

It’s the same with the seven Laws of the Universe.

They are absolute.

And they make no exception for ignorance.

If you’re not aware of the Law of Gravity and you walk off the end of a building, a great big hand is not going to come out of the sky and grab you because you didn’t know you would fall.

Similarly, the Laws of the Universe don’t change just because you weren’t aware of them or because you had a good intention.

You’re either following the Law or you’re not following the Law.

And you can tell by your results, which is the case. But either way the Laws are ALWAYS working!

Why do I see so many coaches in debt?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Dear David,

I’m noticing something and I wanted to get your thoughts on it. It seems like everywhere I turn there’s someone proclaiming to be a mindset coach, a wealth coach, a success coach or a manifestation coach. My problem with this is that after attending several seminars, those people who claim to be able to help others achieve their financial dreams, haven’t actually been able to achieve their own…and in fact they are in a great amount of debt. What is up with this? There seems to be an epidemic of broke coaches.

Neagle Code Answer

Hi, and thanks for your question.

A few years ago, I started noticing this trend as well. And the simple answer is:
Erroneous understanding of the Laws is largely why you’re seeing this.

People calling themselves coaches, trainers, gurus, with no understanding—or a very perverted understanding—of how the Laws of the Universe work, started teaching the Laws, teaching spirituality and prosperity.

And, as a result, they started bastardizing the Laws and doing more harm than good.

I’m not saying this stems from malicious intent.

The teachers usually believe what they’re teaching, but that teaching is filled with ignorance and very wounded ideas about how the Laws work, how Spirit works, how God and the Universe work.

This harmful teaching is creating mobs and mobs of people with the same lack of understanding, and lack of positive results, which is compounding the problem, creating destruction all over the place, and sending this industry into a downward spiral.

I can’t tell you how many times my team and I get questions about why the Laws don’t work for them.

That question in and of itself is a misunderstanding of the Laws. The Laws are ALWAYS working.

People are losing faith, losing hope, and they don’t understand how to turn this around.

My suggestion is to only work with people who have demonstrated through their results and testimonials that they truly have an understanding of the Laws. And when in doubt, turn to the truth for the answers.

Truth can be found in any of the books you’ve heard me mention over the years. A few good examples are:

The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles
Working with the Law by Raymond Holliwell
Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill
As A Man Thinketh by James Allen

These books go everywhere with me, and I’ve made it my life’s work to study the Laws and teach them in a way that can clearly be understood.

And if you’d like to jumpstart your understanding and begin to apply these Laws today, you can listen to my complimentary, two-part program, The 2 Most Misunderstood Success Secrets Explained and How You Can Use Them to Rise to the Top in 2016.

Thank you for the great question!

After an affair…how can I trust again?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Dear David,

I recently found out that my husband of 16 years has been having an affair for quite some time. I’m having a hard time not feeling devastated. I understand that as you say, I am the center of my own universe, and I am the one that created that relationship, and I am happy to take responsibility. I am studying the laws and trying to pull my life together by working with the laws, but my question to you is – when I eventually meet another man, how will I know if I can him trust him? How can I use the laws to ensure that I don't waste any more of my life?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi, and thanks for your question.

The Law states that we attract what we are, not what we want.

So to use the Laws to ensure that you don’t waste any more of your life, you must get very clear with yourself as to why you would have attracted your husband and his subsequent actions.

If everyone in our life is a mirror for us, and no one is a victim, then we must take responsibility for everything in our lives and see the lessons as they are.

Cheaters cheat for only one reason.

They don’t have the courage to say what they want.

Is this also something you struggle with?

Do you have difficulty saying what you want, even if it means the loss of a relationship or judgment from those around you? Is there something you were lying to yourself about?

Once you have clarity around why you attracted the affair into your life, you must go to work on getting very clear about the person you’d like to meet.

You see, we are not taught how to attract a partner. Most relationships start with a physical attraction, and we fall in love, and most times, we fall in love with the wrong person.

To really make sure that you’re attracting an ideal relationship you must write out what qualities and values you’re looking for, and then you yourself must live those qualities and values.

Use that list as the authority in deciding if a relationship stays or goes, and it will help you find a relationship that will bring more life to you both.

My friend has a lack mentality. How do I respond?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

I was visiting with some friends who are very much in the lack mentality. For instance my friend prides herself on how she only buys her clothes on sale or at Goodwill because it saves her so much money or constantly is telling me how much she paid for something. I find myself either biting my tongue to share my new insights with her or judging her. She is a close friend and I don't get to see her often, but how do you respond to people who have different beliefs than you?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the great question!

I know first hand that this is a question that many people struggle with.

The first rule of thumb is that you should always surround yourself with people who are of like mind and goals. There is some truth to the old saying; “You are a product of the five closest people in your lives”.

The second thing I’d like to point out is that if you’re not verbally disagreeing with your friend, her lack beliefs are seeping into your subconscious.

Have you ever spent time with them, and then suddenly found yourself slipping back into lack thoughts and decisions, not even realizing it until you caught yourself days later?

And the third point here is that your friends aren’t asking you to help them change, therefore, it’s not your place to “set them straight.” They have the right to believe whatever they want, and if it bothers you, it’s your responsibility to make the choice to accept them, or to limit your time with them.

Usually when I get this question, I ask, “How is the relationship serving you?” I think this is something you may want to take a look at.

You’ve probably heard the saying, “A relationship is for a reason, season or a lifetime.”

It may be time for you to spend less time with these dear friends, and focus on making new friendships that support your ideals and growth.

How do I find the right people for my team?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

How do I find the right people to hire for my team? I’m currently feeling incredibly frustrated with the process AND the people!

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the great question!

When doing ANY hiring, you always need to first start with yourself:

• Are you the right person to do the hiring? Be honest.
• Do you have a poor track record of turnover within your business?

Businesses lose money every time they have to fire and hire, so at times, it’s often less time consuming and more cost effective to turn to a professional to assist you in hiring.

They are skilled at not only knowing what questions to ask you to make sure you attract qualified people, but also what questions to ask the potential employee.

An outside service can be more objective and know how to “read between the lines” in an interview so that only qualified people who will match your culture make the cut.

If you feel like you are the person to do the hiring, sit down and make a list of all the qualities and skills you’re looking for in the “right” person.

Be specific. When hiring you want to be able to clearly explain both “duties” and expectations.

If you find that you are still having difficulty finding the right person to fill a role in the company, you may need to take a long hard look at why you are attracting the situation:

• Are you keeping yourself the bottleneck in your company so as to stay hidden or not have to take risks to grow?
• Do you have issues with trusting someone else to do a job that you know you can do well

Remember, everything starts with you, so the more clear and honest you can be with yourself and others, the easier that position will be to fill.

How to create an unshakeable mindset

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Gheeta K.

Neagle Code Question

How do you create an unshakeable mindset?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi, and thanks for the question!

There are two key factors in creating an unshakeable mindset.

One is understanding, and the other is experience.

Allow me to explain.

I am an avid student. One of the really great things my mentor taught me a long time ago was how to study, and to this day I never travel anywhere without my books.

I’m constantly holding my thoughts up to the light of the truth that is found in those books.

In this way, I can consciously understand what’s happening around me.

This is step one of a solid mindset. Study.

The second step is to give yourself a different experience, because you see, experience creates understanding deep in your subconscious.

If you don’t give yourself a different experience, your new understanding doesn’t become part of who you are being.

Let me give you an example.

Sarah is reading about abundance, and she learns that her environment is incredibly important in manifesting her desires. She consciously understands the concepts, and it makes complete sense to her.

She looks around her office and notices that she really needs some organizers and that flowers would really make a difference.

The next time she’s at the store, she sees the most beautiful bouquet of flowers and it stops her.

She really wants the flowers, but doesn’t like the price tag, and even though she feels different energetically around the flowers, she decides to pass them by because she believes they are too expensive.

Sarah has a conscious understanding of the Laws, but she’s not putting those laws into practice, therefore her understanding has not become part of who she is being, and her mindset is not unshakeable.

She desperately wants an abundant life, and yet, she makes her decisions based in lack.

Have faith in the Laws and put them into practice in every area of your life.

It’s the only way to create a rock solid mindset.

Understanding resistance: how to tell if something is not right for you

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Amanda E.

Neagle Code Question

How do you know the difference between when resistance is because something isn't right for you vs. resistance because you REALLY need to do it to take yourself to the next level? Thanks so much, David!

Neagle Code Answer

What a fantastic question!

I think it would help if we used a specific example here, and because so many entrepreneurs resist sales, let’s use that as the example.

First things first. When you decide to do anything in your business it is important to ask the question,

“Is this taking me closer to my goal, or further away?”

We know that the lifeblood of any business is really sales. If you don’t have sales you don’t have a business.

Making sales calls WILL bring you closer to your goal, if your goal is to build your business.

Yet many people will tell me that they are not sales people; that it’s just not in their personality.

And it’s a big lie. They are resisting doing the thing that will grow their business because of fear.

The crazy thing is that many people won’t even try. To really understand if something is not for you, you have to do it long enough to determine if it’s not for you.

Herein lies the difference between knowing if something is not right for you or if you’re resisting something.

I’m sure you’ve all heard the phrase, “You won’t know if you like it until you try it.” There’s a lot of truth to that statement.

If you’re wondering if you’re resisting something, get very honest with yourself. Determine if doing it will bring you closer to your goal, and if it will, DO IT!

How to set up boundaries between work and personal life

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

HELP!!! As a small business owner, my entire life is devoted to running and keeping my business afloat. I have not had time for a personal life. When I get with people in my industry, one or two things tend to happen:

1) They want me to mentor them for free;

2) They want to sell me their services when all I want is a friend.

How can I separate my business and my personal life when they are one in the same?

Neagle Code Answer

Thank you for the question!

The problem you are describing in your question is nothing more than a boundary issue.

The fact that you see your business life and personal life as one is a key indicator that you have not set proper boundaries for your life and in your relationships.

Your business life should be your business life, and your personal life should be your personal life.

Here are some suggestions on how to set proper boundaries:

1) Have a set start and end time to your work day. Do not let your work invade your personal time. Work will always fill the time you allot it, so you may find that you are much more efficient when you have a limited time to work on your business.

2) Get involved in something outside your business. If you like to fish, join a fishing club. If you like to read, join a book club. If you like to hike, join a hiking club. This will expose you to people who know nothing about your business, but still share the same interests that you do. They won’t want anything from you except your thoughts on your favorite fishing spot, book, or hiking trail.

3) Schedule time with your current friends and gently let them know that you’re not open to a conversation about your business, and you don’t feel you can be their coach and their friend at the same time. You’d much rather be their friend. If you’re worried about what you’ll talk about, think about purchasing a small box of conversation starters. They are great to spark new and interesting conversation.

4) Do some journaling about who you are outside of your business. You need to begin to realize that your business is not your identity.

Keep in mind that as you do this, you may feel a small bit of anxiety. It’s perfectly normal as you begin to redefine who you are and what life you most want to live.
