“In order to reach your desired outcome you must focus your attention on what you desire. Seems simply, doesn’t it? But most people do the opposite. They focus on what they don’t want and that is what they get. If you had to have surgery, how would you feel if your doctor was watching a ball game on TV at the same time? Wouldn’t you want him to focus on what he was doing instead of being distracted? You cannot serve two masters. In every moment you are either moving TOWARDS or AWAY from the things you desire based on what you focus on most of the time. So, use the next few weeks to focus on completing something small you desire. Do the work, have fun and you will reap the rewards – big time! Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation that you are making progress – IF YOU LOOK FOR IT! No matter how large or small, please record it in your Evidence Journal. It will only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.” [Shared with us by a psychologist friend.]
You cannot look at that which you do not want and not join and perpetuate that vibration. Take your attention from that which is not in harmony with who you are, and in taking your attention from it, your “now vibration” will adjust to who you really are, and then you can uplift others. Abraham [Excerpted from Portland, OR on 6/10/97]
How easy it is to get sucked into things, events, and conversations that concentrate on what is wrong, bad, evil (I use that word just as an attention getter) and similar without realizing that in this vibration based Universe we are vectoring that vibrational frequency into consciousness and the one Law does its perfect work as it gives us more of what we have called wrong and bad. We are learning to consciously use the one Law to our benefit and advantage as we #1, understand how it works, and then #2 placing our attention on what we want to be, do and have. We learn to tell the story of not necessarily what is, but of what we want everything to be and to stay with that energy package until it responds with an emotional chill that feels good. Find a good friend who is on the path and practice telling the story of what and how you want things to be and to then speak supportive words back to him/er. A treasure map is a great exercise as the images and words reinforce how this process works. If we have had a habit of dwelling on the bad and wrong, and telling our organ recitals then it will take a little time to round the corner toward our goals, desires and plans, but it must happen, for it is Law.
“A belief is nothing more than a chronic pattern of thought, and you have the ability—if you try even a little bit—to begin a new pattern, to tell a new story, to achieve a different vibration, to change your point of attraction. The Law of Attraction is responding to your vibration, and you can easily change your vibrational point of attraction by visualizing the lifestyle you desire and holding your attention upon those images until you begin to feel relief, which will indicate that a true vibrational shift has occurred.” Abraham [Excerpted from Money and the Law of Attraction on 8/31/08]
Any beliefs that are no longer serving you, yet are held only to surface at the most inopportune time? “If you go outside with wet hair, you’ll catch a cold” might be one, but a fairly harmless belief. Some beliefs are not that harmless if they are based on unworthiness and a God that is anything other than omnipresent Love. Explore this…if there is anything in our lives that is not fulfilling our goals, dreams, desires and plans, then somewhere held in consciousness there is a untrue belief that isn’t being forthrightly challenged as it occasionally nudges itself into your awareness. It is okay to do this; it won’t make the Truth of you less in the Kingdom. However, if it provides a direction for energy other than for fulfilling things, then it isn’t serving you. Life is supposed to be fulfilling and good for such is the nature of God, hence it is your nature as well and will manifest unless you (we) have other plans. This is why things like Treasure Maps are very helpful. This is why positive visualizing is a powerful tool. The true story is told of Catherine Ponder (prolific writer on prosperity principles), she went to the Rolls-Royce dealership in Palm Springs and asked permission to often sit in one of the cars on the showroom floor…to just periodically sit for a period of time. “Mrs. Ponder, don’t you want to sit in the driver’s seat?” “No, that’s where my chauffeur will be sitting” Ponder was said to have replied. What was she doing? Creative visualizing. She knows the power of visualizing the lifestyle she wanted. The Rolls? In her garage. Consider spending time doing something that feels fulfilling and soon this vibrational shift in consciousness will have to be made manifest…it is Law.
“In your action, you lose sight of the vision, you lose sight of your trust in the process, and you just bang around in a sense of futility. Hold the vision and trust that the Universe will acclimate to your vision. Hold the vision and trust the process.” Abraham [Excerpted from Portland, OR on 6/10/97]
In the Course in Miracles there is a statement that resonates with many people…”I need do nothing.” It doesn’t mean that there isn’t action required, but the usage of the word need often implies work, effort and struggle, which isn’t a requirement as we learn to allow the working of the law to manifest around a vision held by us. Today’s quote speaks the same language and reminds us to practice simply holding a desire or vision and to then trust the process of the Universe supplying it or something better. Certainly action may indeed be part of the equation, but it won’t involve strain or effort.
“Negative emotion is your indicator of resistance, while positive emotion is your indicator of allowance. And they are on the same meter: allowance; resistance. Allowance; resistance.” Abraham [Excerpted from Monterey, CA on 3/20/01]
Could it really be that simple? What if it is, he hurts nothing to begin to monitor the emotional feedback segment of who we are and strive to keep it in the allowance realm. Certainly we all experience what can be called resistance or not feeling good emotions…life seems to give us that opportunity. However, be that is it may, we have another opportunity and it is to pivot our thoughts away from what doesn’t feel good to something that does. If it is an encounter with person, place or thing and it is presenting opportunities to move to the negative emotional side of things, then if possible disengage, or actually be up front and say something like, “This doesn’t feel good to me, can we move to another topic/subject,” or just somehow move within yourself to a “place” that is more peaceful…something.
