What is the Maya Matrix?
Maya is an Eastern term meaning "the illusion of reality." The word "Matrix" refers to the complex system of living inside that illusion that we call life. The phrase the Maya Matrix means reality as we know it, which is a perception of life, not life itself. The Maya Matrix is the lens that makes it seem complex, unfair and limited. The illusion is that there isn't enough and that we are separate from life.
The ego is not your real identity. The Maya Matrix uses that lens to make it seem as though you are smaller than you really are. The Maya Matrix makes you forget the answer to the most fundamental questions... Who am I? What is reality?
If the ego defines you, it would say things like: I am a woman, I am a man, I am a kind man, I am old, I am fat, etc. A simple phrase, "I Am" by itself, does not mean anything to the ego. "I Am" is too big for the ego. To find the truth about yourself and reality, we must go beyond the Maya Matrix. We must transcend.
NOT transcending the Matrix limits us and causes unfulfilled potential which causes suffering. Our Being (I Am) holds our greatest potential and sees, in every moment, unlimited possibilities to fulfill this potential. In it, we find guidance, shelter, peace and the greatest qualities of life. What would happen if we each knew how to live our potential despite our circumstances?
What are the Seven Simple Steps?
The Maya is the belief that we are separate from life, that we can't trust life. By design, there is an innate tool that helps us integrate with our Being (I Am) and achieve our highest potential. The Maya Matrix disconnects us from that tool, deceiving us into believing that we are powerless. This tool is not new. It just needed to be put together in a simple way that is complete and works consistently. I call the Innate Tool the Seven Simple Steps or the Innate Guide. They are:
2) Awareness of Being
3) Authentic Expression
5) Receiving Guidance
6) Inspired Action
What is the difference between the Law of Attraction and the Seven Simple Steps?
The Law of Attraction explains how manifestation works. It suggests that when you vibrate at a certain frequency, you gather all the experiences that are equivalent to this frequency. That includes everything you desired and at the same time, everything you feared about that frequency. However, while learning about the Law of Attraction can be helpful, it must be connected through each one of us to manifest our intentions. Our "I Am" must be connected to it! The Steps are familiar, simple and clear. The illusion is a habit and letting go of it must be practiced. Making any progress is joy.
