What do you guys think of this?
Let's say I desire a car....And someone I know wants a car as well.
If I were to sort of help them get a car, would I be doing myself a favour? I don't necessarily mean buying a car and giving it to someone else, I mean helping someone who is down and needs a boost in a particular area (and paradoxically, I also need a boost in that area).
Since all others are an extension of me, would going about my desires in this fashion end in fruition of my own desires?
This idea came to my own head, but I also do recall bits and pieces from the book Questions and Answers from Conversations with God; in which the author says, in reply to a question of "what is the quickest way to manifest a miracle?"- The idea is to try and do so for someone they know. It then went into detail of how the easiest way to get out of depression is to find someone else who is depressed, and get them out of it.
Comments, ideas, suggestions?
Btw, for IQ people who'd love to hear some personal detail of Nikulas....A friend of mine was getting upset over how his girlfriend dumped him, and, I myself also struggling in that area of my life, had no clue of how to myself out of that sad blue place until a (inspired) thought hit me suggesting to coach him out of this rut, which I felt compelled to do and in fact did so successfully. It made ME feel a ton better seeing my friend now believing, and better vibrationally, he would meet someone amazing.

Yes @Nikulas, it's a great idea and I think it goes even further than you are suggesting.
A bit like my How To Live Forever answer, I've been waiting for a number of months to try and squeeze an idea onto IQ somewhere, and it looks like I might be able to do it here :)
About a year or so ago, I was listening to a recording from the 9D Pleiadians and they were talking about how the current financial systems of Earth will not be able to survive in their current form as the planetary vibrations increase.
Personally, I've thought for quite a few years that the current financial systems that exist are now more about controlling the masses and keeping them locked in a "poverty consciousness" than being the genuine expression of human energy exchange, which is what the idea of money originally started out as.
So it was interesting to me to hear the 9D Pleiadians talking like this.
What they were saying would eventually take the place of Earth's financial systems would be a concept that they expressed as (and I'm paraphrasing roughly from memory)...
"As you give of yourself, all your needs will automatically be met"
My interpretation of the idea is simply that when you be who you really are and express that in your reality then, in doing so, you are contributing your energy towards a "Greater Whole" which, in return, contributes its energy back to your reality in whatever way you require.
It's actually back to that original idea of money as an energy exchange, but without the need for the physical representation of money i.e without coins, notes, figures on bank statements.
For example, let's say who I really am (i.e. what I genuinely love to do in my life) is play music. In doing that and expressing that purely, I am guaranteed by the "Greater Whole" to receive support in other areas of my life to continue that expression.
Notice that this is not just about you receiving support to continue being a musician but support throughout your life in return for you just purely expressing your musicianship.
"As you give of yourself, ALL your needs will automatically be met"
When I heard this idea from the 9D Pleiadians, I had a bit of a lightbulb moment in my head and had a realization that this has always tended to be what I've naturally done in my life.
I've hinted before that I often get involved with projects, not for any financial (or otherwise) return, but just because it feels like something I want to do even if it seems to apparently lead nowhere in the physical world.
And I've noticed again and again, a direct correlation between the pure expression of my self and my needs being met automatically in other parts of my life.
In a sense, you could argue this is the old idea of Karmic return - "What goes around, comes around", or "You are rewarded for what you do for others".
But I see this as a much more subtle, refined principle than that one because all you are doing is expressing yourself as who you really are, not getting involved in any kind of charitable work. Personally, I almost never get involved (on purpose) with organized charities or fund-raising.
And when using this idea, you are not looking for any kind of return, you are just expressing who you are purely regardless of getting anything back...in some respects it is like the Superhero Method where you are really just doing your "good deeds" because that's who you are not because you are looking for recognition.
So now relating this to your question @Nikulas: Through your own life experiences, you've developed a deep understanding of how to deal with relationship "issues" and in simply expressing yourself (expressing your understanding) then, yes, absolutely, you are setting an energy flow in motion that cannot help but benefit you in many unexpected ways, not just with your own relationships.
Hope I've managed to get these ideas across in a useful way :)
About a year ago I came across a piece of literature which told of a guy who was on a very tight budget but always gave money to the poor once a month. A small amount, something like $20 he would give and he said every time he was rewarded 10 fold. When his wife found out she was very upset because of their tight budget, but he convinced her the money would always come back bigger and better within a matter of days or a week or 2. After seeing the proof, she eventually increased the amount to $50 to give to charity.
I thought this was very interesting and decided to give it a try. Every paycheck I would take $20 to give to someone who needed it. I would walk the streets downtown looking for down and out people who really needed it.
A down and out person who was desperate for a cup of coffee and food is who I aimed for. (Not the drunks/drug addicts looking for their next buzz) The feeling I would get of happiness and joy when I'd see the look in his eyes as I would hand him the $20 bill. The feeling is incredible.
Another time was being in a grocery store cashier line and the little old lady in front of me didn't have enough money for 2 can's of tuna sandwich meat and could only afford one. I would happily say to her "God wants you to have this" and hand her the $20 which she needed so desperately. The intense feeling that would come over me was incredible.
The returns I got were easily 10 fold!
Sometimes it comes back to me in cash and sometimes it doesn't. It can be someone unexpectedly saying "I'll cover lunch" or "an incredible deal" or someone will pay for a tank of gasoline for my car because I drove them somewhere." Free tickets....All kinds of ways.
Giving from the heart. Not giving to show your superiority or just to make someone go away, but genuinely giving from the heart for the sole purpose of bringing joy to someone you don't even know.
Followup on Relationship Woes....(this is for everyone, and it's a good one)
Lol....I guess this must be breakup season because the same thing happened to me a few months ago. Although after I caught my ex cheating, it was me who dumped her.....No empathy on her part....very devastating.
After a couple of weeks I got her out of my mind enough that I scrapped myself up off my floor and decided to apply a technique to get another woman.
I remembered back to one of my past girlfriends and the magical feelings of when we first met, and remembered a shirt she gave me and the feeling "she's now my girlfriend" and a couple other memories with strong feelings of love....I gathered all those "FEELINGS OF LOVE AND EXCITEMENT" together and focused them into meditation (and out) and felt those past feelings and felt them as if they were happening "now." No scenarios, no people.....just the feelings, and I would replay and replay. Once every day or two.
I wasn't going to find a woman on my living room floor so I got up and went out to the nightclubs by myself, I am a sociable person and going alone doesn't bother me (much).
First weekend was a bust!
Second weekend was a bust!
Third weekend I got too drunk!......I was starting to question the technique but was patient.
Forth weekend a couple of girls sat beside me and we chatted and one of them gave me her phone number to call her. After they left an average looking woman came and sat in front of me and asked if I was single? Before I could say anything she said "because my friend is interested in you but is too shy to come over and say hi. Would you like to meet her? she's sitting right over there....." I turned and looked and I couldn't believe my eyes!! "That incredibly beautiful woman wants to meet me!!"
Without seeming too eager I turned back to the average woman, cleared my throat and in a very calm and collected voice squeeked out some kind of approval.....lol!
...and that was my next (temporary) girlfriend AND completely forgot about the 1st girlfriend who cheated on me.
Concentrate on the feelings. As Bashar says "Your job is to only concentrate on the good feelings! Don't worry about what is going to show up because your higher self is only going to bring you the best of the best for your circumstance. It won't short change you......and in most cases you are going to be pleasantly surprised at what does show up!"
This answer is marked "community wiki".
In coaching you deal a lot in the area of breaking the circle of negative/limiting beliefs. I can't ,I don't, I never... So in your mind you too must also change these beliefs. And be an example . A parachute instructor can only teach so much on the ground they must also jump out of the plane.With that jump you show the student that they can enjoy it as much as you do.
