From I Am University: Dr. Joshua Stone, Negative Ego Traps and Snares on the Path of Ascension

1. Giving your personal power away. (This applies to giving it to other people, your subconscious mind, to your negative ego, five senses, physical body, emotional body, mental body, inner child, to a guru, to the Ascended Masters, to God.) Ponder on this for there is much wisdom in this short little sentence.
2. Trap number two, loving others, but not loving yourself.
3. Trap three is not recognizing your “negative ego” as the source of all your problems.

From I Am University: Gloria Excelsias, Wesak: Once-in-a-Year Opportunity to Accelerate our Spiritual Growth

The Festival of Wesak is celebrated on the full moon of Taurus (full moon when the sun is in Taurus). At the hour of the full moon, the light volume of the sun is at its optimum and it is this energy of the sun that we seek to amplify and disseminate. In other words, at the hour of the full moon, a door is opened that gives humanity access to higher spiritual energies and forces which at other times we cannot contact. Our job is to make ourselves receptive to these energies, absorb them, and share them in service.

From Mudrashram Institute of Spiritual Studies: George A. Boyd, The Seven Faces of Destiny

Destiny includes those factors of the unconscious that you do not control that operate to shape the issues of your life. This karmic template is handed down to you at the time of your birth and includes the blessings and adversities of your fate.
Some traits of destiny are shaped by the body into which you incarnate. Some arise because of the particular family and neighborhood in which you are born. Other traits come from the re-emergence of issues from former lives. Some are based on the level of your spiritual and vehicular development from former lifetimes, which bring to you innate gifts and abilities; wisdom, judgment, and discernment of opportunities; and virtues and vices.

From I Am University: Gloria Excelsias, Magnetism, the Universal Law of Attraction

Magnetism is not only a force known in the physical world. Magnetism is a universal force. It operates on all planes.
This is why the images we picture in mind, concentrate on and ensoul with persistent desire magnetically attract those things to us.
Now, the same happens with our mind when we fill it with magnetic thoughts of joy, love, gratitude, happiness, health, success, friendship, with things we desire. Our aura literally becomes magnetized by these lofty thoughts and vibrations. It is charged with magnetic force and begins at once to attract that which we mentally and emotionally focus on.

From I Am University: Dr. Joshua Stone, The Keys to Becoming Invulnerable to Attack and Criticism

The key principles to becoming invulnerable to attack and criticism from others is as follows:

First, you must own your 100% personal power at all times and maintain self-mastery over your thoughts and emotions at all times. For, in truth, the only thing that can hurt you is your own thinking. It is your own thinking that determines if you can be hurt or not. You are the cause of your own reality! You are the cause of your own thoughts and emotions! The only thing that can hurt you is your own victim consciousness and/ or negative ego/fear-based/separative thinking.

From I Am University: Gloria Excelsias, Man’s Work is Ever Within Himself

Life is a mirror. The people in our life mirror ourselves. If we want the outer world to change, we have to turn within. The work is ever within ourselves. If we look at the bathroom mirror in the morning and we don’t like what we see, it will not occur to us to change the reflection by trying to change the mirror, will it? The only way to change the reflection in the mirror is to change ourselves. The same holds true for our entire life. Life is a mirror. The people in our life mirror ourselves. If we want the outer world to change, we have to turn within. The work is ever within ourselves.

From Mudrashram Institute of Spiritual Studies: George A. Boyd, How to Open Your Own Third Eye

This meditation is used to unite your attention with your attentional principle. This technique is called Purusa Dhyan meditation.
Purusa is the form of consciousness in which you will behold your attentional principle.
Dhyan means to meditate, to gaze upon an object of meditation, to unite your attention with that object. In this meditation, your attentional principle is the object of meditation.
The attentional principle consists of four elements: your attention (chittam), vehicles (swarup), the essential form of your attentional principle (purusa), and the wave of consciousness (chetan).

From I am University: Gloria Excelsias,The Science of Getting Rid of Fear

We live in a world of energies and forces. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another. So the only way to get „rid“ of fear is to „transform“ it into joy and happiness. Fear is short for „false evidence appearing real.“ The false evidence appearing real is the „evidence“ mediated by our „senses“ that we are indeed separate from Source, however, it is „false“ evidence. It is not true. In other words, we did not manage to do the impossible, namely, separate ourselves from Source. In other words, our fears are illusions. However, they feel real because whatever we vibrate with our bodies feels real to us.

From I Am University: Dr. Joshua David Stone, How to Deal with Negative Ego Neighbors and People

One of the most difficult lessons of the Spiritual path is the challenge that people face in dealing with relationships.  It is in relationships that people often build the most amount of negative energy.  The focus of this article is how to effectively deal with people and neighbors who are extremely run by the negative ego. To begin this discussion, it must be understood that when life is looked at from the perspective of the Soul, everything is seen as a Spiritual lesson, challenge, and Spiritual test.  Every interaction is seen as an opportunity to respond from the Spiritual / Christ / Buddha Consciousness attitude rather than the negative ego / fear-based / separative/dualistic / illusionary/selfish / lower self attitude.

From I Am University: The Development of Personal Power by Dr. Joshua David Stone

Of all the attitudes and qualities that need development in a healthy personality, none is more important than personal power or the development of the will. This last statement and point cannot be emphasized enough. Everything I have spoken of so far (in this book) will not work if you don’t have personal power. Personal power is the key that makes the theory and ideals work. Personal power, or will power, is the first golden key.
What is personal power? Personal power or will is the guiding force of a healthy personality. Personal power is first an attitude.
