Are you hoping for a stress-free, peaceful Christmas? Would you like to be able to stay in your own happy zone while family dramas are going on around you? It’s all down to what you choose to think about.
You may have heard of the ‘Law of Attraction’, but what does it actually mean and how do we get it work for us? It basically means ‘like unto itself is drawn’, in other words you attract everything, both good and bad, into your own life by your emotional state of mind and what you choose to focus on.
You judge something to be good when it matches what you want and say it’s bad when it is not what you want. Wanting is thought-form that has momentum and a thought-form is a thought which is repeated many times and believed.
The key to attracting what you do want into your reality is to always choose to think of, and already feel the joy that you will have when what you want has manifested. You need to feel that joy in your present moment because if you see it in the future, it will stay in the future. And it’s only when your thought-form about it has enough momentum that what you want will manifest in reality, so the more joy you feel when you think of what you want, the sooner it will manifest. It helps to appreciate what you have already, as that emotional state manifests more things that you will appreciate.
So you might have five big things in your life that you don’t want and one thing that you do want. If you choose to think about the thing you want, you’re happy – no problem. The happy vibration gives the thought-form big momentum, so the five unwanted things must change to things you do want, because they don’t fit your happy vibration.
Equally, if you have 9 thoughts of wanted, happy things and one thought of something you don’t want, if you continue to focus on the one unwanted thing, as people often do, then the vibrations of the wanted things will also start to change to the less wanted.
So if these thoughts were food, if you taste something bad, you should spit it out or swallow quickly to get rid of it. It’s important not to think about it. If you taste something good, you should deliberately choose to savour it and make it last. You should remember the good taste, and when it’s gone you should think for many moments of the memory of the good taste. This gives momentum to the positive thought-forms. So when something you don’t want happens, don’t think of it or focus on it, just think of a different ‘nice taste’. It doesn’t matter what you’re thinking about, only that it’s something that makes you feel good not bad, so you create momentum around positive thought-forms rather than negative ones. If you become aware of a negative thought, flick it off as if a cinder from a fire had landed on you. If you flick it off straight away, no problem, if you leave it there it will burn a hole.
The moments before sleeping are particularly powerful for manifesting as you are starting to flow with your subconscious. So each night as you are falling asleep, think of 5 things that have happened that day that you liked. Do it regularly and soon you will be thinking of 10 things that day that you have liked. To do it before you sleep is important as it means you go into sleep feeling that happy vibration.
When you have become practised at this you will notice that you are feeling happier most of the time and that your mood is less often swayed into negativity by things that you dislike. It usually takes daily practice for more than a month to change the negative habits of a lifetime, so be patient.
When you are happier most of the time, you can extend the exercise and think each night of 5 things that you have done that day that you are happy about. This is important for you to learn to appreciate yourself as this changes your core vibration to one of consistent happiness where you will attract more experiences that will make you happy.
So how long must we think positive thoughts instead of negative thoughts before we start to attract the things we wish for? Wrong question – it’s not a question of time, only momentum. The amount of momentum in the thought-form governs how quickly the wanted thing manifests. People might know the theory but still choose to think often about the things they don’t want, or think “it hasn’t come yet, it’ll never come, I can’t make this attraction thing work for me”. They are right because their doubting negative thought-form means only the unwanted can manifest.
So, this Christmas, savour the good experiences, ignore the bad experiences and choose to keep feeling the joy of already having what you desire in life; and you can use these tools to create the 2017 that you want.
Wishing you joy and laughter
