Like attracts like. Essentially, the energy you transmit will attract that same type of energy towards you. Your thoughts will manifest according to, and in line with whatever you put out there. It’s happening whether we are consciously aware of it or not. (Esther and Jerry Hicks have done alot of work on this topic…thanks to Lisa for this @LadyAstoria for this link).
So if you think you lack something, then that is exactly what will happen–you will lack. If you expect abundance, then you will have that.
I get it, and believe that there are some very powerful universal forces at work here. Thoughts become intentions, and intentions become my reality. If I look back on some of the big events in my life–career, relationships, etc–I see quite clearly how my thoughts have affected the outcome.
So if I am thinking in a way that is not what I truly desire–that is not serving me–then I should think and behave as if I am operating from a place that is positive, that is serving me. This is the part I have trouble with.
My thoughts just happen. And my emotions just happen (whether I allow myself to experience them or not–a whole other topic!). So how do–in practical terms–interrupt or prevent a thought that is not serving me, that is not in my best interest, and replace it with one that is? If I feel anxious, upset, or angry about something, how do I not feel that, and not put out that energy? If I think I lack something, how do swap that with thoughts of abundance, when the day to day reality of that “lack” situation says otherwise?
Perhaps it not so much a question of not allowing a negative thought or feeling, but rather learning to recognize when they are occuring, and gently but methodically replacing them with those that are more beneficial.
Another one of those “easier said than done” situations, but I know there are many who can do this.
I am sending it out there. Any “thoughts?”
