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."
Yesterday I was listening to a CD from Esther Hicks called "Ask & it Will be Given." It is about energy and The Law of Attraction, which basically holds that whatever we put out into the Universe as a vibrational state comes back to us. I was really grateful to be reminded that we all have a natural state of well-being, and we can choose to either resist or allow that natural state.
It also discussed that we can gauge how connected we are to Source by our emotions; in other words, the better we feel, the more in alignment we are with the Yes!, the I AM. So we can watch with detachment our emotions like a guidance system. We also can listen (with detachment) to our thoughts, which are our vibration--the point of attraction.
So (this is totally mind-boggling), if we want to attract something different in our lives, the place to start is by changing our thoughts! And, if we are having resistant thoughts, we can change them to from resisting to allowing.
Wow. I think I have been seeing this backwards for much of my life.
As Hicks puts it (paraphrased):
We look our whole lives to control our outside surroundings and attach ourselves to what we observe; we think that when we have __________, we will finally feel better. The reality is that our natural state of well-being is always available to us because we can learn to CHOOSE better feeling thoughts to feel better--before our negative vibration manifests in the world in the physical form. These are the processes we must pay attention to consciously if we wish to become intentional, deliberate creators.
We must awaken.
We must shed our unconsciousness.
We must raise our collective vibration.
In Gabrielle Bernstein's newest book May Cause Miracles, guess what she writes about? Energy.
Here are some of her words:
"Your body is a molecular structure that is always vibrating energy. That energy is positive when thoughts are positive, and it is negative when your thoughts are negative. Our energy fields are like magnets; they attract their likeness. Therefore, if your energy is negative . . . guess what? You're attracting negativity into your life. [ . . . ] The miracle-minded approach shows you how to shift your thoughts and energy, thereby attracting positivity into your life."
Bernstein, May Cause Miracles, p. 7
So, whatever energy we put out into the Universe in the form of thoughts comes back to us in the original state--in the same form of energy. Ask yourself:
Can you shift your vibration from negative states to focus more intentionally on service, gratitude, forgiveness, and love?
Can't wait to hear from you!
Lots of love,
