iHi, my name is Matthew, and I am the creator and founder of the Subconscious Hustle. Welcome to my blog!
My spiritual journey started; I’ll rephrase that. My Conscious spiritual journey started back in 2012. At the time, I was looking for a way to develop myself spiritually even though I came from a Christian household and went to church regularly growing up, usually on a Saturday morning, so I’d miss the best of Kids TV.
My mum was and is an amazing woman, and she was also very spiritual. No, she didn’t meditate, but she had a beautiful connection with the Divine. That was evident in her conduct and the values she taught me.
I always felt a connection to my Higher self and the universe; I always knew a divine spark was within. One of my oldest memories from school was being asked what I thought the meaning of Life was? my reply at such a young and innocent age, possibly about seven was.
” We come here to learn how to live correctly, and we keep coming back until we get it right” I have always had this mindset.
As I grew older, I lost a lot of people close to me, including my Dad at 14, my sister in 2012, and my brother in 2017. So seeing people pass away over the years had me ask that big question. What is this all about?
I started studying Near Death Experiences or NDEs and the fantastic accounts of people who have died and come back. The tremendous work by people like Dr Raymond Moody and his Book
Life After Life reading the spiritual accounts and hearing how those experiences changed people’s lives, some of those being atheists.
Another fantastic book is Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moojani I was reading this while my brother was dying from cancer, it not only helped emotionally, but it also sparked a longing within me for a connection to the higher Vibration part of my being, namely Spirit.
This area of work/research and the accounts covered within books shifted me spiritually at the deepest level of my being.
What I was searching for was not your traditional Religious teachings. Instead, I was more interested in learning about my True Self, The Spiritual “I Am”, through meditation and possibly Buddhism, loosely speaking.
Through the Powerful Law Of Attraction one evening whilst at work, I got a notification on my phone and received a random link to my Nephew’s book.
I never discussed my thoughts or desired to seek a specific path with anyone! Yet out of the blue, as if by magic, my Nephew sent me a book that would spiritually change my Life’s directory. The book is called Zhuan Falun, and it is the main text from the powerful Self Cultivation Practice Falun Gong or Falun Dafa, as some may call it.
Falun Gong is a spiritual practice derived from Buddhism, a self-cultivation practice based on the three tenants of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. This was the start of my spiritual journey. I then continued my meditation practice and studied books, such as the You Are the Placebo, The Power of Now and The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind, to name but a few.
