As long as you’re letting joy be your guiding light, then you can always stay in balance. –Abraham Hicks
We all have the capability of living life radiantly if we do just two things:
1) accept that the Law of Attraction is always at work in our lives, making us powerful creators;
2) take 100% responsibility for creating our life experiences.
Accept the Law of Attraction is always at work
First is important to understand what the Law of Attraction is.
The Law of Attraction in it’s most simple form states that: like attracts like
or similar vibrational energy attracts similar vibrational energy.
So, why does Law of Attraction matter?
It matters to us because everything we do, think, and feel emits vibrational energy. Anything said, done, or felt while in a state of Joy emits an extremely high vibration and attracts people, thoughts and experiences with similar vibrational energy. We have all experienced at some time or another when a joyful person enters a room and the mood is immediately lighter. We say “the whole room brightened when she walked in.” And I think we have also all experienced the opposite. We are sitting in a room filled with people having fun and an angry person enters the room casting a black cloud on the fun. We say things like “he sucked the energy right out of the room.”
What happens differently with the people in the room in these two scenarios? The angry person goes to sit in a corner, begins to complain and is joined by others who complain and is avoided by those more interested in having fun. The joyful person is greeted with cheers, or hugs and handshakes and expressions of appreciation that they have come to join the party.
Like attracts like, ALWAYS, whether in anger or in joy.
Like always attracts like. The Law of Attraction is always at work no matter whether we are aware of it or not. This is great because it is easy. We can relax and trust that the Law of Attraction is bringing to us what we are asking. The problem arises when we are not actually asking for what we really want; that is to say, when our underlying beliefs don’t vibrational match what we consciously say we want.
When we are out of alignment with what we want, we don’t attract what we want, but usually the opposite.
For example, a young overweight man may say “I really want to to be thin and fit.” That certainly has a positive tone to it and should attract experiences and thoughts that are a vibrational match. So why is he not getting thin and fit despite the exercise, dieting and visioning? The reason is that he is not aware of a much stronger negative, lack-based vibration that he is emitting as a result of his underlying beliefs. Every time he says or thinks “I want to be thin and fit,” he feels an immediate twinge of excitement about feeling and looking fit. However, almost immediately the thought is replaced with several more thoughts and beliefs: “I hope it works this time. I always lose some weight and gain more back. I hope that doesn’t happen this time. Diet and exercise have never worked for me in the past. Oh, I’ll never lose this weight.” These thoughts are stronger because he has been believing this his whole life as he has struggled with his weight. Consequently, these thoughts have a much more intense vibration and are way more powerful than the conscious thought “I want to be thin and fit.” Soon he begins to sabotage his own fitness plan, maybe by cheating on his diet or skipping workouts.
Take 100% responsibility for creating your life experiences
In order for this young man to get what he wants, he will need to become aware of his unconscious belief that he can’t lose weight; AND, accept that the Law of Attraction is bringing him what he is asking for as a result of the vibration he is emitting with his negative thoughts around his physical condition. This is where step two comes into play. He now needs to take responsibility for his thoughts and actions by consciously working to let go of those underlying beliefs that get in the way of having what he wants, a thin and fit body. How does he let go? He let’s go by first noticing and observing those thoughts of lack, then just letting them float by, not attaching to them, and replacing them with a better feeling thoughts. It is important to notice the feeling that a thought brings up, because it is the intensity of the feeling and emotion around a thought that determines the strength of the vibration that it emits. That is to say, the more you believe a thought and the more that belief generates strong emotion, the stronger the vibrational energy you will be sending out into the world. This works both with negative and positive feeling thoughts and emotions.
This brings us to another important thing to understand. We cannot make abrupt and large vibrational leaps, say from despair to joy, in one thought. For example, this man could not genuinely jump from “I will never lose weight” to “I have a thin and fit body.” Why won’t this work? Because his beliefs and feelings are not actually supporting that leap. So if he were to try on “I have a thin and fit body,” he would notice that he doesn’t actually feel better. Instead, we need to move incrementally up the vibrational ladder. For instance, anger and rage have a higher vibration than despair. So moving from despair to rage is actually positive movement. Moving from “I am a lost cause. I will never lose weight.” to “I am furious that I haven’t been able to lose this weight yet.” actually feels better. There is more energy around it.
How do we move up the vibrational ladder?
It is simple. Find a thought that feels slightly better. In this example, “Oh, I will never lose weight.” might turn into, “Well, actually I have lost weight before.” This in turn might change to “I suppose I could lose weight again.” Both these thoughts are gradually moving up the vibrational scale. At this point, he has become a conscious creator by choosing better feeling thoughts. He will need to do this every time he notices a negative thought about his weight coming to mind. Eventually, he will have fewer of the negative thoughts and will begin to find evidence of his desire coming to him. As he experiences the evidence of what he wants coming to him and feels the pleasure of the experience, he will emit a higher vibration and attract more of the same. As he comes into energetic alignment with his desire, he will have harnessed the power of the Law of Attraction, and become a conscious creator.
So, we all have a choice between being unconscious creators and conscious creators. The Law of Attraction will support us no matter which we choose. We can all choose the path of being a conscious creator and begin living radiantly right now.
What choice will you make?
