Yesterday after my last email about finding positive aspects, I received a question that is actually rather common.
In essence, this person asked why it is there are people who focus on good things, and yet get negative manifestations in their lives, or even get good things taken away from them.
Well, this question can be answered in a single sentence: there aren’t such people, because such a thing would violate the law of attraction.
In every single case where it seems like this is happening, invariably something else is going on different from how it appears to be.
You simply cannot feel consistently good, and yet not have good things flow into your life.
I’ve been doing this for three years, and have never seen an exception to this rule.
So now, obviously you’re thinking of examples where exactly this sort of thing seemed to happen. so let’s address a few ways that this can seem to happen, but actually never does.
First, it’s amazing how little we actually pay attention to our own emotions. Whenever I’ve seen someone saying that they feel good and yet don’t have what they want, when we really take a look, they aren’t feeling good nearly as much as they think they are.
Feeling good doesn’t just mean feeling OK, or feeling ordinary. What feels “ordinary” could in fact be quite a bit of resistance, because we’re so used to it.
Feeling good is really, genuinely feeling happy, appreciative, joyful, etc.
Second, people often fake their emotions in order to try to get what they want.
This falls under the category of “fake it until you make it,” which is real advice some LOA teachers give, and really, really doesn’t work.
Sure you can fake some positive emotions, but underneath it all is your true negative vibration. And sooner or later, it will come back with a vengeance. You can never hide how you are really feeling forever.
But so many people who practice the LOA are so focused on just being happy now, that they’ll often fake it. But the aim isn’t to be happy in this very moment, but simply to feel a little bit better right now. It’s to have a real, authentic vibrational shift. You can never fool the Universe.
Third, just because you’re focused on the thing you want doesn’t mean that you have a high vibration. Abraham says that every subject is sort of like a stick that has two ends: the wanted, having end, and the unwanted, lack end.
So let’s say you’re thinking about money. But just because you’re thinking of money doesn’t mean you’ll get it. Quite often when someone is thinking about their desire, they’re actually thinking about the lack of it in their life.
And so if you’re thinking of the lack of money, for example, you’ll get more lack of money.
But people try to fool themselves and think that just because they’re thinking about their desire, so the Universe will now bring it to them. But the Universe is responding to your vibration, not to the subject you’re thinking about.
Again I reiterate, it is literally impossible that you feel good for the majority of the time, and not get what you want. I promise that if you really look at how you are actually feeling, throughout the entirety of your day, you’ll find it’s not nearly as positive as you thought it was, if you aren’t getting the results you want to get.
Self-honesty is extremely important with the law of attraction. You have to be able to determine what your actual vibration is, before you can work to shift it to something better. If you’re pretending, it’s not helping anyone, and could actually harm you a great deal.
The first step of raising your vibration is always to bring acceptance to what is here right now.
As such I’ve developed a comprehensive class that will teach you exactly how to use the power of radical acceptance to completely melt away any and all resistance standing between you and your desires.
