Ever had an unwanted experience, and the first thought that came to mind was “Why me?” or maybe “How on Earth could this have happened?” or even “This is so unfair.” Abraham-Hicks tells us, “There has never been an injustice anywhere in this physical time/space reality or anywhere else. The Law of Attraction does not promote injustice. It amplifies the vibration that is within you.”
Thoughts are things that vibrate everywhere in this physical time/space reality and everywhere else. Thoughts are impersonal until we make them our own by focusing on them. We could say thoughts are up for grabs, and we get to choose which ones we’ll grab and invite to vibrate within us. And, they’ll do just that, vibrate within us, until we let them go. While we are focused on them, they emit certain vibrations within us that the Law of Attraction amplifies and extends into the forms, expressions and experiences in our life.
A thought is like a cloud that passes by in a blue sky. Clouds come and clouds go, and never affect the sky behind them. Our mind is like a blue sky, and just like clouds, thoughts come. And they would go without affecting us, if we’d let them go. When we let a thought move on no matter what it is, when we let it pass by us or through us without giving it our focused attention by analyzing it, it doesn’t disturb our mind. Eckhart Tolle wrote, “If you can interrupt your inner dialogue for even a moment, you can experience the underlying stillness, the beauty and space that is always undisturbed.”
We are immersed in the Creative Energy of a Universe that, through the Law of Attraction, moves into action for us anytime we think into It, whatever we think into It. Most of us think into It most of the time without interruption, forgetting or unconcerned that all of our thinking-thinking-thinking affects our life because the Law of Attraction is amplifying our thoughts. Our thoughts make our life what it seems to be to us. The idea that our thinking affects our life experience isn’t anything new. This isn’t “New Thought.” The Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius, way back in the First Century AD, wrote: “The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” Jesus said a Century before that, “As you have believed, so it is done.” And, relatively more recently Emerson wrote, “As a man thinketh so is he, and as a man chooseth, so is he.”
Ancient and contemporary spiritual wisdom tells us the same thing: Our thoughts become our life. That’s why it’s such a good idea for us decide to live consciously so that we can “chooseth” how we want to experience as our life. When we invite certain thoughts to stay with us, they emit a vibration that causes something to happen wherever we are. They cause a movement within the Invisible that brings forth eventually, or even immediately, a worldly experience that matches it not only in our personal life, but everywhere a vibration matches own!
It’s been said that “The universe is a continuous web. Touch it at any point and the whole web quivers.” Peaceful thoughts bring peace into the moment we’re thinking peacefully. If we focus on them long enough, their vibration attracts peaceful people and situations into our experience, and also supports expressions of peace in the world. In the same way, angry thoughts bring anger into the moment we’re thinking angry thoughts. If we focus on them long enough, their vibration attracts angry people and situations into our experience, and also supports expressions of anger in the world. We might want to ask our self: “What am I causing to ‘quiver’ in this world.”
There are really only two ways for us to live our life. One is to live consciously, aware of what we’re thinking in the moment we’re thinking it, and aware of how we’re feeling in that moment. In this way we become aware of which thoughts feel good and which do no. Then we can consciously choose to focus on the ones that feel good. Or we can live unconsciously by paying no attention to what we’re thinking or how we’re feeling as we’re thinking. In this way, we abdicate our power to consciously choose how we experience our life. But either way, the focus of our mind is a powerful thing that calls into our experience, through the Law of Attraction, what we call our life. We read in The Science of Mind, “As the Universe is run by an Infinite Mind, so man’s life is controlled by his thinking; ignorance of this keeps him in bondage; knowledge will free him.”
The old adage “You reap what you sow” is a metaphor for the Law of Creation or the Law of Attraction that amplifies the vibration within us and either keeps us prisoner of old thoughts and repetitive experiences, or frees us to experience life today as we choose. We don’t need to go back in time to relive the past. If we’re repeating the same thoughts today that we thought yesterday, and responding in the same way emotionally, those thoughts are keeping the vibration of our past alive in our mind right now as current thought, and the Universe is listening right now and responding. The vibrations we’re emitting today are calling to us more of the same experiences and holding us a prisoner of the past.
We live in the Vibration of Creation. There’s no getting away from our creative power. We are saturated with and within the Creative Flow of Spirit. Thinking that some of our thoughts are private and don’t go any farther than our head, and that they don’t vibrate and create, is like thinking we could be immersed in the ocean and not get wet! How we live with and within the Creative Power of the Universe is up to each of us.
Are you a “repeat offender”? If we’re not sure if we are, it may help to know that the answer to “Why me?” is that our life is what our thoughts continue to make it. The answer to “How on Earth could this have happened?” is that the thoughts we’re thinking are perpetuating what we are experiencing. The anecdote to feeling like a victim of unfairness is to remind our self that the Law of Attraction does not promote injustice. It amplifies the vibration that is within us. We are free to use our power of choice to change the vibration of our thinking. Thoughts that feel good have a high healthy, vibrant vibration. Thinking thoughts that feel good changes our life for the better. But changing our thinking for good takes desire, commitment and consistency.
How many times have we said, “I’m so done with that,” (whatever “that” is—not feeling healthy, happy, worthy, rich, or free), only to pick up right where we left off before making our “I’m so done with that” declaration with the very thoughts that have been causing whatever “that” is to persist in our life. We may pick up where we left off with thoughts of worry about our health that restrict the feeling of well being within us that is the basis of health and healing. Or we may go back to thinking about all those things we’re unhappy about. Or we may get on with our negative self-talk that never fails to keep us from feeling undeserving of something better. Or we may go back to lack by giving our attention to what we don’t have, and how expensive things are. Or we may start counting all over again all those things we have to do that we don’t want to do, things we feel obligated to do that keep us from feeling free. Even though the Divine Source of Life is Unlimited, unless we change our thought vibrations our habitual thoughts will continue to set up a vibratory barrier between us and the life we want to live.
There is a big creative difference between wanting change and being changed. A momentary change in our thinking that feels good is a good start. But we’re simply out on probation until we become the change that changes our life. Our mind is the authority in our life. Nothing changes unless we change our thinking and keep the change. Change begins as we focus on the feeling of joy, peace and satisfaction within us that we believe a physical change would bring about. Then, as we feel the prenatal joy, peace and satisfaction of the life we are creating with our inner focus, the vibration within us changes, and the Law of Attraction amplifies that change as new forms, expressions and experiences in our life.
We read in A Course in Miracles, “There is no world apart from what you wish, and herein lies your ultimate release. Change but your mind on what you want to see and all the world must change accordingly.” The Pure Positive Energy of the Source of all Life is eternally ready in each moment to enrich our life in every way whenever we’re ready to allow It to. We hold the key that opens the prison that has been keeping us captive to habitual thoughts and repetitive experiences. All we have to do is change but our mind on what we want to see and we are free.
