Whenever I'm at home, which ain't often - my own area (my room/office) is always "Walled off" to a degree.
No, not physically.
But there is a shift in energy you can feel from the mundane to the MAGICAL when you step in my room - something "different" - me - which is not there in the rest of the house.
My daughter is getting to the age where she can put her own energy that way into things, hopefully she lets the dumbphone aside for a while to do it ...
Wife (who doesnt get it this till point despite all the gurus she follows "tum apni duniayo me rehte ho" (you live in your own world! sigh!)), rest of the family - I've no idea, I dont even care much to be honest. The only real family I have is ...
Anyway - back when I was growing up, at a very young age, I still remember my father complaining / commenting about something - "you've built this emotional fortress around yourself that nothing can penetrate".
I didnt realize it back then.
I didnt realize back then - indeed until a few years, what I've been subconsciously, on auto pilot - since I was born damn near is one of the GOLDEN KEYS (yes, ask Napoleon Hill - or any DOER) to success - real and lasting success.
And to being a "goddamned survivor". Hehe.
Given the crap in which I grew up, I had to do it.
Either make your own life - swim AGAINST a very powerful tide indeed - or swim with it. Most of my "family" chose the latter. I chose the former - always - with all its issues, travails and problems (see the review of Zero to Hero! On Audible - hehe - and Gumption Galore) ... always one to take the path less traveled, and ultimately the MOST glorious, rewarding and satisfying.
Less than 10% of folks out there despite being told, tutored etc have the confidence to take that first step.
Those that do, less than 0.01% really make it big as they want to, because that first step is the first step, and there's plenty of challenges ahead.
Most fail 'em.
As written in Think and Grow Rich, it's a "select few" who are admitted the gardens of Bounty.
That doesnt mean the doors aren't open for ALL.
But you have to qualify, precious few do.
Anyway - Napoleon Hill wrote about his guardian princes in "Get Rich with Peace of Mind" and how you should build MULTIPLE WALLS in your mind to keep out everything but what you WANT from reaching your subconscious mind - and the princes that get RID of what does "escape security".
Physically, same thing.
Around myself, my own room has everything that is dear to me, that I see daily.
What did Hannibal Lecter see?
We COVET that we can see everyday, but cannot get ...
Well, get you can if you employ the subconscious mind right, my friend.
And part of it is REMOVING what you dont want from your life pronto - in a manner that will shock most people - I do so before the thing I want is physically on it's way to me.
Faith, my friend, indeed moves mountains.
Think about that as you read this, go about your day ..
And thats that.
