“The best way to jump-start ourselves to higher vibrations and better lives is to consciously focus on all the good in our lives, stop focusing on what we don’t like, and begin spreading love around everywhere — first to ourselves and then to others — treating ourselves and others with the respect and support we want for ourselves, and sprinkling acts of kindness around the same way.”

Creating Your Own Reality: How’s That Working for You?
By Ellyn Dye
There’s been a lot of buzz in the past few years about the Law of Attraction and the idea that we create our own reality. But is that true? Do we really create our own reality? And if so, why would we create some of the things we’ve created in our lives and in the world? Are we masochistic or just nuts?
The idea was popularized in the late 1970s, in the Seth Material, a group of channeled books by Jane Roberts. It was a radical idea, and it pretty much caused heads to explode all over the place! About 10 years ago, The Secret brought the idea back into the popular culture, as everyone embraced the idea of envisioning themselves to wealth and success.
So, do we really create our own reality? If so, why aren’t we doing a better job of it, creating more love, joy, peace, and abundance for ourselves and for the world? What’s the holdup? Why aren’t we all out there doing just that?
We are, in fact, divine, powerful creator beings, and yes, we are creating our lives in many ways, on many levels, in every moment. But here’s the rub (er, the disclaimers):
1. Most of the time, we are creating unconsciously, from deep beliefs, assumptions, and expectations that we may not even know we have (OUCH!), and it is very hard to take responsibility for our role in creating situations that we think are someone else’s fault and that we don’t like and think we would never create for ourselves.
2. We aren’t creating in a vacuum. As they say, You are God, but so is everyone else! And most of us are totally unaware of that fact! (And many would actually recoil at the notion!) We are co-creating with the millions of other creator beings in the world, who are also creating unconsciously, and who all have different wants, needs, and agendas. And the creations of all those beings often impact each others’ creations (what we see, in our personal lives and in the outer world, is what we get when that happens);
3. Energizing the vision of what we want is usually only the first step, and sitting on the couch waiting for what we want to miraculously appear won’t work; we must take action (remember the idea of God helps those who help themselves?!)
4. Once we set the vision, we must let go of the outcome. When we try to control it, we prevent the flow of Magic that can bring us something better than we ever imagined. When we are too specific about what we want and how it will “look,” in essence, we tie God’s hands (it will probably take longer to manifest that perfect mate with those 57 specific attributes than the wonderful mate that has many better qualities than we could think of).
5. Sometimes we actually get the essence of what we want, but it does not come in the package we expected or look like we thought it should/would, so we don’t even notice that we received it!
6. There is a timeline — a gap — between our sending out the creative impulse or intention and the manifestation of it. And in the meantime, our impatience, negative beliefs, doubts, fears, and/or lack of action can delay or cancel it, or even create the opposite of what we want! (For example, if we send out the intention to attract more money, a new job, a new love, or whatever — but we subconsciously fear or believe that we don’t deserve it, that there is only a limited supply, that it’s hard to get those things, or that we will fail — those fears and beliefs actually will prevent us from attracting what we want.)
7. We can often manifest the easy, non-essential things quickly — such as a parking place or the perfect jacket to match those new slacks — simply because we have no deep-seated beliefs against our receiving those things.
8. There is usually no clear-cut, observable cause-and-effect, and the timeline/gap can vary widely, so it is difficult to practice and “hone our manifestation skills”.
9. Sometimes we are trying to create something that is contrary to our life plan, purpose, or highest good. These are the times when we pray, and the answer really is NO! Or, if we persevere, we might get it, but it probably won’t turn out well, and it will feel like we had to push the truck up the mountain to get it.
Often the very situations in our lives that we would like to eliminate are there because of a soul or life plan, and those situations will not shift until we fulfill their purpose, provide whatever service we had planned to provide, learn whatever we intended to learn, overcome our fear, empower ourselves, take action, and shift inside.
For example, if we came into this life with the soul plan to experience a disabling accident or illness — with the idea that the situation would allow us to learn to receive love and assistance, and give others the opportunity to provide it — it is unlikely that any amount of working with the Law of Attraction or envisioning will heal us. Alternatively, if our soul’s life goal was to overcome a disability, and we’ve done our part to learn and grow from the situation, a path to overcoming it will present itself. Of course, “overcoming” may look a little different from what we thought we wanted!
Too often, we view the idea of creating our reality as a quick fix to all our problems, a magical means of controlling our lives and our environment — and even the people around us — through our conscious minds and our egos, to create all those material things and external circumstances that we think we want and need to be happy. Too often, we view the idea of creating our reality as the “magic pill” to make us instantly wealthy and thin (or whatever), while we conveniently bypass the messy, hard parts of learning, growing, and persevering.
But it doesn’t work that way. We all know that there is no such thing as a “magic pill,” even while we hope with all our hearts that there is one, and we’ll find it! In order to bring meaningful, lasting change into our lives, we know, deep down, that we must change our erroneous beliefs, confront our inner demons, face down our fears, put our ego in the back seat, get over our pride and our deeply held needs to control everything and be right all the time, and surrender… and THEN (as if that weren’t hard enough!), we must take actions, even if they are only baby steps, toward our goals. And, when resistance or difficulties show up in our path (and they will, just so we can show the Universe we really want it, and we’re willing to put our money where our mouth is, so to speak), THEN we must work through those obstacles and setbacks, reaffirm our goals and our worthiness, focus on what we want, and keep moving forward with faith, trust, and determination.
Otherwise, we’d miss all the fun, right?
This is not an easy process, but it is THE process (as long as the majority of us believe it is!) It is what life is all about. It is about stripping away the false thoughts and beliefs and fears that keep us imprisoned (in the Hell of our own creation, so to speak). It is about learning to be flexible, rising above challenges, learning and maturing from our experience, learning to trust ourselves and the Universe… and finally getting back to a point where we are truly living as our authentic selves, working with the Universe and not against it, and treating ourselves and each other with love and respect as we learn to peacefully co-exist.
If we really were here to wave a magic wand and create the life of our dreams (aka what we have been led to think we want), we would all be doing that right now (and probably making a mess)! We would all receive our magic wands in the delivery room, or as a rite of passage when we turned… what? 15? 18? 21? Yikes! Can you imagine a bunch of 15 year-olds with magic wands, able to create anything they want? Hahaha, parents would be disappearing across the planet in record numbers (and they would take broccoli with them)!
So How Does it Really Work?
Inventor Nikola Tesla told us: If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
The being(s) called Abraham, channeled through Esther Hicks, teach that we are all creating our reality under the Law of Attraction, based on the vibration we are putting out into the world. In essence, they say that we get back what we put out.
There is a famous adage, As above, so below. The lesser-known — and perhaps more important, in these times of great change — corollary to that is, As within, so without. The Law of Attraction, based on our vibration, explains how that corollary works: We can only attract into our lives people and circumstances that resonate with the vibration we are putting out. This isn’t a new concept, and we’ve had this idea for centuries, although it is usually interpreted to relate only to our actions: We reap what we sow, or, the more contemporary version, What goes around comes around.
The idea of vibratory resonance takes the idea to a new level and gives us another way to work with it. In fact, we are in a continuous feedback loop: Whatever is present in our lives is a direct reflection of the vibrations we previously put out into the world. (And to that, some of us just have to say, OUCH!) What we experience, and how we feel about it, provides the feedback: If we don’t like what we are experiencing and don’t feel good about it, we must raise our vibration in order to attract something better into our experience. Another way to look at it is the idea that doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result, is the definition of insanity. If we want something to change, we must change something about ourselves or what we’re doing.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — you’re right.”
— Henry Ford
But what creates the vibration that we are putting out to the world? It is a combination of our deep — often unconscious — beliefs, our level of self-love and trust, our emotional state (fear, despair, pessimism, or optimism and love), our predominant mindset, and our thoughts, words, and deeds, and where we focus our attention.
It is all, perhaps, an elaborate form of self-fulfilling prophecy. If we believe life is hard, it is. If we believe we can’t get a break, we can’t. If we believe we must suffer to get ahead, we will. If we believe people will let us down, they will. And we may not even consciously know that we are carrying those beliefs! The Universe unerringly gives us what we (unconsciously) expect, and shows us that our deep (unconscious) beliefs are right. And whatever we focus our attention on (the good, the bad, or the ugly) will grow as the Universe tries to give us more of what we want!
It seems like a nasty Catch-22 to realize that, in the midst of difficult circumstances, the most constructive thing we can do is to consciously reach for those higher vibrations: to force our minds out of victimhood, blaming, complaining, and negativity (or from wallowing in self-pity) and into optimism, hope, trust, forgiveness, and gratitude. It feels like being in a Heads they win, tails we lose situation or, worse, like being the butt of a giant cosmic joke on us.
“Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee,
And I’ll forgive Thy great big one on me!”
— Robert Frost
But our mindset goes a long way in determining our vibration. Optimism has a higher vibration than pessimism. Victimhood, despair, blaming, negativity, and complaining all have low vibrations, as do fear, hatred, irritation, and frustration. Self-loathing and self-doubt? Very low. Laughter, love, joy, hope, gratitude, forgiveness, responsibility, and trust all carry higher vibrations. It’s that old cliché about when your house burns down around you, be grateful that you’re still alive! Not just pretending, but truly grateful! The more we pull ourselves up out of the muck, regardless of what we are experiencing, and reach for something better — trusting that we deserve and can have something better — the more we raise our vibration and set up the vibrational environment to attract and create something better.
The real key to consciously creating lies in acknowledging what is (whatever is presenting in our lives), accepting responsibility for our role in creating it and bringing it into our lives (even if we don’t know how/why we did it), learning whatever lessons we can find from the experience, and working to identify what deep beliefs are being reflected back at us, so we can work to change them. Then we send out the vision of what we want, let go of the outcome, and follow our guidance as it comes. We must let go of the outcome and trust the Universe to do its Magic.
That is where the proverbial rubber hits the road. When we can use the lemons life hands us to make lemonade, we have won the game! When we can see the silver lining in those dark clouds that feel like they are choking the life out of us, we have effectively repositioned ourselves. When we can forgive and feel gratitude for those who have seemingly hurt us (often creating situations in which we must stand up for ourselves or take actions of self-love in the face of our fears), we have cleared the finish line! And when we can flow through challenges — and even disasters — without judgment, trusting that the Universe has our back, that we are safe, and that something good will come from it, we have our feet planted firmly on the road to enlightenment.
That doesn’t mean that we never feel down and never really loathe some of the challenges we encounter. We are only human, after all, and life on earth can be pretty harsh and painful! It just means that when we go down into the pits of despair and self-pity, we choose not to take up permanent residence!
And it doesn’t mean that we blame ourselves or move into guilt about our “failure” to create whatever it is we said we wanted. Unfortunately, too often we move into “New Age guilt,” self-blame, and self-flagellation when we have used all the techniques to create something and we don’t get it. We know it is “our fault” that we haven’t attracted that perfect job with the high salary or the perfect mate who adores us (and makes a high salary). It’s our fault we haven’t cured ourselves of that chronic disease or healed all of our family relationships. And, because we blame ourselves, we move into existential guilt.
With New Age guilt, instead of blaming other people for our pain, we blame ourselves. We fall into despair and loathe ourselves a little more than we did before. We believe we are failures. We use what (limited amount) we know about the Law of Attraction and creating our own reality to beat ourselves up about our perceived failures instead of using the FEEDBACK we get from the external world (e.g., our life, job, relationship, etc., still sucks!) to guide us inside toward the erroneous beliefs that are stopping us in our tracks. Remember, if we believe we are failures, we will fail at everything, because the Universe gives us the perfect reflection of what we believe! So, instead of helping us be pro-active in ferreting out the fears, resistance, and erroneous beliefs, and releasing them, this New Age guilt puts us into a different kind of loop; it puts us into a cycle of failure, self-blame, and self-loathing, which lowers our vibration and attracts more of the same, or worse. We are very funny creatures, aren’t we, that we would do this to ourselves!?
This is the true meaning of alchemy and the philosopher’s stone: it is the conscious, concerted effort to tame the ego/conscious mind away from its automatic negative responses (fear, guilt, blame, and unworthiness, etc.); to identify, uproot, and change our erroneous, self-defeating beliefs; to relinquish our illusion of control; and to direct our attention, thoughts, attitude, and actions toward higher vibrations, gratitude, and better things. It is tearing our eyes away from doom, gloom, and disaster; focusing on what is good in our lives; and putting our attention and energy into creating the loving, joyous, abundant life we want, and fearlessly taking those baby steps toward it.
Why didn’t we get a manual, so we’d know how to do this?
We actually did get the manual, and it shows up in the sacred texts of all religions. In Christianity, it’s called the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We also were taught: Love your neighbor as yourself, and (as noted before) we reap what we sow. It seems relatively simple, doesn’t it?
Most of us probably think we are good people and we follow these simple instructions, but do we? Do we really treat others the way we want them to treat us? Do we always treat others with the love, respect, acceptance, and support that we wish we could receive? Do we treat everyone that way, or just the people we care about or want to impress? Do we treat people that way when we’re in a hurry? When we’re stressed out? When we’re competing for a job? When we’re feeling ill? Or do we treat others that way only on our “good days” or when we think someone is watching? If we treat others callously, with disregard and disrespect, why would we expect to be treated any differently? We will attract that treatment into our lives.
And how do we treat ourselves? Most of us think we do, but do we really love ourselves? Self-love must come first of all and, frankly, that is where most of us fail, and how we end up creating circumstances that we don’t like. How can we allow others to love us, and how can we love our neighbors, if we don’t really love ourselves? If we fear what makes us different, we will certainly fear what makes others different. If we don’t know how to treat ourselves with love and respect and support, how will we know what it looks like to treat others that way? And if we treat ourselves badly — blaming ourselves and acting as if we don’t matter — how can we expect others to treat us differently?
The best way to jump-start ourselves to higher vibrations and better lives is to consciously focus on all the good in our lives, stop focusing on what we don’t like, and begin spreading love around everywhere — first to ourselves and then to others — treating ourselves and others with the respect and support we want for ourselves, and sprinkling acts of kindness around the same way.
As we head into another amazing year in this Great Shift we are undergoing, it behooves us to monitor our progress by paying attention to what we’re getting back in that vibrational feedback loop (aka the external world) and what that’s showing us about where we need to release our fears, examine our beliefs, and tweak our vibration to get closer to creating and enjoying what we want — not just the specific material things that we think we want, but the qualities of life that we all want and need — love, peace, joy, ease, abundance, and good health!

The Pathwork Lectures of Eva Pierrakos
“Man constantly creates, whether he knows it or not. He creates by what he is, by what the sum total of his feelings, his conscious and unconscious opinions and convictions are, by his conceptions, which determine his actions and reactions, by his goals and his attitudes. Every thought is a creation and has its consequences. It brings about a specific result that expresses this thought. Since man consists of many conflicting thoughts, and since his thoughts and beliefs often vary drastically from his emotional conceptions, the result, that is his creation, must be accordingly. The mixed-up, conflicting and confusing lives most people lead testifies to this fact.”
“There is an enormous difference between those who unwittingly create, never knowing that their unwise, erroneous thoughts, their destructive feelings and their unchecked wishes bring about a result as surely as if they were to commit a conscious act; and those people who attempt to check, test and challenge their concepts; who seek for the truth and adjust their ideas, thought processes and aims to it; and who purify their feelings by going through them with courage and honesty, wisdom, and the foresight that what exists inside, no matter how painful, cannot simply be avoided, but must be experienced. This latter attitude toward life can then result in DELIBERATE CREATION of one’s life…”
“You are living in a highly potent creative substance. You live in it, you move in it, you have your being in it. Everything that consciousness emanates, sends forth, expresses into this substance, must take on form. The word you speak or think, the emotionally charged thought, knowing it and pronouncing it, is the creative act… This is how creation unfolds in its myriad ways.”
“Understanding this principle, it will become obvious why one can tell exactly what a person is, thinks, feels and believes (consciously and unconsciously) when one sees his life, when you see where and in what areas has this person fulfillment and abundance, and in what areas impoverishment and want.”
“It is, therefore, one of the most important aims on this path to make all you think and know, you perceive and conceive, you believe in and want, conscious. Only then can you see the conflicts and the misconceptions. Only then can you begin to create meaningfully a good life…”
The Pathwork Manifestation Process:
Identify what we want to manifest. Our clarity and conviction; our ability to provide a clear directive to the universe, free of all conflicts, is what determines the success or failure of the manifestation process. If, when attempting to bring something into manifestation, we realize there is a conflict within us about it, then we need to stop and find out where the block is: Either a negative part of ourself is blocking the process (and needs to be re-educated and realigned), or a higher part of ourself is blocking the process (because it knows what we seek is not in our best interest). We can easily determine if there is a conflict within us about something we want by how we feel about it. The conscious and unconscious forces within us must both be in alignment for us to feel good and bring things into manifestation.
2. Impressing & Being Impressed
Once we have cleared ourself of all resistance, let the idea, wish, concept — the thing we want to manifest — “sink in.” Allow it to unfold in its own organic time and way, without disturbing it with doubt, fear, or impatience. Be prepared for it to manifest in ways that are unforeseen, unexpected and more wonderful than anything we can imagine. We should also be prepared to be led to other blocks first — areas of ourselves that need to be worked on before the thing we are seeking can be brought into manifestation.
Imagine and feel ourself in the state we seek. If we are unable to do this, stop and ask why? Where is the block? What is preventing me from feeling myself in the state I wish to enter into?
If the process is working, faith will be there. The thing we are seeking to manifest will feel good, right and clear. We will be able to feel it coming to us.
The Abraham Material of Ester Hicks
The main theme of the Abraham Material is that whatever we focus our attention on — whatever we focus our thoughts and emotions on — eventually becomes the reality we experience.
The universe is designed to give us whatever we seek and, in every single moment, is perfectly responding to whatever thoughts and feelings we are putting out. Our life experience — every single moment of it — is a perfect reflection of what is going on inside of us.
Our primary task is to become conscious of how we create whatever we experience and then begin to consciously wield the forces within us to produce only those experiences that we want to have.
We manifest things through three different processes:
The Abraham Material repeatedly stresses the idea that the things we encounter, see, observe in our everyday experiences deeply influences us. Human beings, according to the Abraham Material, are very good observers. The problem is that we tend to indiscriminately focus our thoughts and emotions on the things we observe, thereby causing whatever we are observing (and especially what we are observing with great emotional intensity) to manifest in our lives. The trick, according to the Abraham Material, is to become highly selective about what we observe (and how intensely we resonate to what we observe) so that we are only giving our energy to things that we would like to manifest in our lives.
The Abraham Material stresses that visualization is one of the primary tools human beings have to produce the kind of experiences they want to have. Since our experiences in the outer world spring forth from the forces within us, changing the forces within us is the only way real change can be brought about. The Abraham Material says that working on the inside helps establish “grooves” that makes it easier to actually manifest whatever we want. If, for instance, we want to exercise more often, then we visualize ourselves exercising. This creates “grooves” inside of us that make it easier for the outer activity to follow suit. If we don’t lay the foundation on the inside first, then our efforts to exercise more often fail, no matter how much willpower a person exerts, because the inner world is not supporting our outer efforts. The Abraham Material stresses, repeatedly, that a few minutes spent visualizing what we want is worth hours of time moving things around in the real world.
“Imagine it. Pretend it. Visualize it. Maximize the vibration of it.”
The Abraham Material says that remembering moments in our life when we experienced what we want also helps us recreate the experience we want.
While our experience in the world makes it look like the only way things are accomplished is through physical action, the Abraham Material says just the opposite is true: The forces within us are really what makes things happen in the physical world. Thus, we should spend more time observing, visualizing and remembering, and less time flapping around in the outer world trying to make things happen.
The more pure (clear, consistent and unconflicted) our desires are, the more easily — and quickly — they manifest. When seeking to manifest things much of our work is, therefore, purifying our inner impulses.
The biggest obstacle to manifesting things is resistance. Resistance, according to the Abraham Material, arises out of “pushing against” something we don’t want. Instead of being clearly focused on what we want, we tend to focus on what we don’t want. Instead of focusing on being healthy, for instance, we focus on feeling unhealthy. Focusing on what we don’t want tends to cancel out whatever energy we are able to generate for what we do want. The end result is this: while part of us is focusing on wanting something good and helpful (health), another part of us is focusing on the negative (I’m sick, I’m not feeling well, I’m going to get cancer) and the two forces cancel each other out.
Focusing on what we want means focusing on “My body is healthy and strong,” NOT “My sick body is getting healthy.” The first statement is entirely positive and helps establish new patterns, while the second statement mixes positive statements with negative ones and produces mixed, mostly negative, results.
Stop looking at the conditions you want to change and, instead, keep your attention focused on the things you want to experience. In other words, if you want to loose weight, don’t focus on your overweight body. Visualize, instead, on the beautifully fit body you want to manifest.
The best way to bring into manifestation what we want is to get clear on what we want and why we want it, NOT HOW we are going to get it, or WHERE it is going to come from, or WHO is going to bring it to us. Focusing on what we want and why we want something tends to generate a clear stream of energy, while focusing on how, where and who tends to throw up emotional and mental blocks. Since we can’t see how, where and who will fulfill our desire, we feel less sure about it coming to us — and it doesn’t then. Focusing on too many details also tends to limit the ways in which the universe can work to bring our desires to us.
The Abraham Material stresses that our main work is to identify the things we want and go after them, not try to heal the planet or other such global, impersonal goals. Lofty, generic, impersonal goals are often simply ways of being dishonest with ourselves. Instead of asking for what we really want (to be happy, to meet our personal desires), we water down and distort our energies by superimposing other goals on top of them. Being honest with ourselves and direct about what we want helps our real needs and wants manifest much more quickly, cleanly and directly. Ironically, this approach not only helps us manifest personal happiness more quickly, but, because we are happy, it also helps heal the planet. Focusing on healing the planet, on the other hand, not only doesn’t heal the planet (because we aren’t healing it on a foundational level), but it doesn’t produce real happiness either.
We want things because they help us feel better — and getting the things we want will help us feel better because they affirm that we are, indeed, in control of our lives and experiences and can, indeed, rise to ever greater heights of fulfillment by manifesting the experiences we want.
We are here to move from one level of fulfillment to the next, with our experiences continuously expanding and getting better, deeper, closer to God. The purpose of life is to give us “more, more, more; better, better, better.”
Seek to manifest what feels good to you, which may or may not what our culture says is good, right, healthy and true. Trust yourself, in other words, and your own inner process. By manifesting the things you want, you will be systematically led to ever increasing levels of fulfillment — and, by your charismatic presence and example, help others do likewise.
Everyone has the right and need to create whatever they want — and there is enough room for all of us to do so. We don’t need to change someone else because we can create whatever we want without them helping or hindering us. There is, in other words, no need to stop or “push against” what someone else is doing. Instead of focusing on the things that other people are doing that we don’t want to come into our experience (which, by focusing on it, helps bring it into our experience), all we need to do is simply turn our attention to what we want.
We should look for the positive in everyone and everything (because we get what we focus on). A very important thing to remember here is that we can accelerate the process of healing by becoming mirrors for one another in the world of observation. In other words, when others observe us feeling good about them, it can dramatically assist them in feeling better about themselves and, by extension, manifesting their deepest hopes and dreams. Smiles, encouragement, kind words can, after all, be very potent forces for change.
When we feel bad, we should find thoughts that help us feel good (we should “talk ourself through” our resistances back to places that feel good). The more we think about what we want, the better we feel.
The more we focus on what we want, the more clearly we see what we are doing and feeling that is preventing us from receiving what we want.
When we feel bad, or become aware of inner resistances, we should be grateful. This means our guidance system is working. We are becoming conscious of the forces within us and now have a means to track and change them.
Learning how the process of manifestation works is extremely important. Once we learn that, we can begin to control what happens to us. We should, therefore, be grateful when we see ourselves produce happy experiences AND painful ones, because both kinds of experiences can teach us more about how we manifest things.
There needs to be a balance between peacefulness (living happily in the moment) and passion (pursuing new goals that have not yet manifested in our lives). If we get too focused on the future, we obstruct the flow by not accepting our present circumstances, and if we get too focused on the now, we hinder the process of unfoldment, and our present circumstances take longer to change.
One self-conscious, focused person can accomplish more than a million unfocused, semi-conscious people.
The mass mind is constantly exerting pressure for all human beings to conform to. The only way to effectively break this influence and bring into manifestation the things we want to experience is by becoming conscious of ourselves and how the forces within us work — and consciously setting out to get what we want. Otherwise, the mass mind dictates our experience.
We should be constantly asking ourselves:
“How am I flowing my energy?”
“Am I pushing against anything?”
“What kind of vibration am I sending out into the universe that the universe is reflecting back to me?”
Just thinking the correct thoughts is not enough. We must also feel good and emote or vibrate what we want. Thinking what we want on the one hand, and emoting, or vibrating to something else on the other, will end up bringing us what we are emoting or vibrating to, not what we are thinking about.
Affirmations and other kinds of visualizing is only effective if they are accompanied by clear, strong emotion. Rote exercises, in other words, have little power.
Identify what you want and then feel good while wanting and imagining it.
The universe does not respond to action, or words, but to vibration and feeling.
All we have to do is vibrationally match what we want, and it will come to us.
When what you want feels more real to you than what you are presently experiencing, then the universe will bring you what you want.
Steps in manifestation process:
– Feel the negative
– Identify what you don’t want
– Identify what you do want
– Talk about what you want
– Feel good about it
– Imagine it
– Observe it
– Remember it
– Seek to vibrate it
The instant you focus your energy on something, the universe begins bringing it to you.
Sincerely enjoy and appreciate every moment. Your goals will be achieved and then change, expand, evolve. The process of expanding never ends, but the process itself remains the same. So enjoy the ride and don’t become overly fixated on goals that come and go. Have fun, relax, be gentle with yourself. It is a marvelous journey that gets better and better as it unfolds.
If we take the time to identify our desires, we will start becoming very conscious of all the things that are preventing our desires from coming to us. We will also start noticing how we are creating negative experiences BEFORE they actually manifest.
It takes time to consciously visualize the experiences we want to manifest in our lives. But it takes more time, and creates more messes to clean up, not to. When we are not consciously creating our experiences, we are creating them unconsciously; and when we are creating them unconsciously, we lack the awareness to know how and why certain experiences came to us — and how to change them.
Human beings that know only how to observe, thrive in good times and suffer in bad times. Because they are victims of what they see, they feel helpless to change their circumstances. Visionaries, on the other hand, use their inner resources to change whatever they observe and don’t like.
Two to three minutes of pure thought (focused, concentrated, unconflicted desire) can work miracles.
30 days of consistent visualization (a few minutes a day) can change most patterns for good.
We don’t have to have all of our energy focused on what we want to receive, just most of it — and most of it can be gathered up by spending time, daily, consciously focusing on what we want.
(Techniques that help us focus, purify, and clarify our inner energies)
Draw a line down the center of a piece of paper. On the right side, make a list of all the things you would like to have that you feel you can manifest on your own, using your own inner and outer resources. On the left side, make a list of all the things you would like to have that you feel are over your head and you need the universe to help with. Then actively work to manifest your side of the list and let the universe go to work manifesting its side.
Create a box in which to drop pictures, words, scripts of what you want to manifest in your life. Whenever you think of, or come across something that you want, drop it in your box. When you receive what you asked for, make a mental note of it (the box is working) and remove the fulfilled item from your box. You can also remove things from your box that you may not longer want, or want to modify.
Draw a circle in the middle of a piece of paper and write whatever it is that you want to manifest in your life in the center of the circle. Now, around the circle, make a list of all the things this thing will bring you and draw arrows from them pointing to the center circle.
Write out a detailed account of what you want to happen in your life. You can write things about everything: how you want meetings to go, houses to look, relationships to work out, etc.
When you notice yourself focusing on something in a negative way, pivot, or turn your attention back to something positive.
Draw or cut out and paste a collage of pictures on a piece of paper that represent the things you want to manifest in your life. These pictures can be for your life as a whole, or for specific things. Then stick your picture(s) somewhere where you will frequently see them. Your pictures will remind you of what you want and help you keep your energy focused on manifesting them.
I Saw People As Energy
“I saw all people as ‘energy’, and depending where our energy level was, that was the world we created for ourselves. The understanding I gained from this was that if cancer was not in our ‘energy’, then it was not in our reality. If feeling good about ourselves was in our energy, then our reality would be positive. If cancer was in our energy, then even if we eradicated it with modern medicine, it would soon come back. But if we cleared it from our energy, the physical body would soon follow. None of us are as ‘real’ or physical as we think we are. From what I saw, it looked like we are energy first, and physical is only a result of expressing our energy. And we can change our physical reality if we change our energy. (Some people have mentioned I use the term ‘Vibration’). For me, personally, I was made to feel that in order to keep my energy/vibration level up, I only had to live in the moment, enjoy every moment of life, and use each moment to elevate the next moment (which then elevates my future). It is in that moment of elevating your energy level that you can change your future (like my test results). It sounds very simplistic, but it felt very deep when I was experiencing the understanding of it.”

Heaven Is A Frequency
“In his presence I felt like I was ‘home’ in a sense that I have never known before. I saw that my true essence is the energy of love, but as we reviewed my life together, I came to understand how I had removed myself from the benefits and bliss of love through anger. I saw how important it is to project feelings of love because other people can either benefit from or be negatively affected by my energy.
“I also came to understand that heaven isn’t a place that you enter but a frequency that you attain. Being in the presence of White Light was ‘heaven.’ It was the greatest feeling I had ever experienced or dreamed was possible. Having that feeling again is what I strive for — not going to a place. The feeling, the energy I experienced became ‘the place.’
“I understood that you take yourself with you wherever you go. Your own consciousness has to change in order to experience the higher frequencies of love, peace, joy, bliss, and tranquility, which I felt a part of.
“So I begged for the opportunity to do just that. I wanted to return because I knew that my consciousness didn’t mesh with the unconditional love I was experiencing. I knew that I had to become more loving in order to experience this indescribable love permanently.”
Takeaways from the quote above:
• Heaven is a frequency
• In order to be in heaven, we need to learn how to vibrate at the same frequency that heaven does
• The primary vibration of heaven is love; therefore the more loving we can become, the more heavenly states of consciousness we experience
• It’s by learning to be a loving person IN THIS WORLD that we gain the ability to live in a heavenly state of consciousness PERMANENTLY. Simply dipping in and out of heavenly states of consciousness gives us a taste of heaven, but doesn’t allow us to permanently stay in those states. This appears to be one of the main reasons we keep getting sent back to this world:
1. We can’t stay in higher states of consciousness until we have developed a consciousness that vibrates, all the time, at higher frequencies.
2. Our souls want to be here so we can learn how to do that.
Nothing Happens By Chance
“I came to understand that most of us have lived much, MUCH longer than we could even fathom. That our lives that feel so very long are infinitesimal when placed in the Whole picture… which for that matter, cannot even be framed. I was shown how every single individual through their own free will chooses paths that MATHEMATICALLY take them to the circumstances of their next existence or life. That NOTHING at all sits in accident or chaos. That every single aspect of our lives are ruled by NATURAL Laws that we placed ourSELVES in! That in a sense, we create our own worlds. I was shown how one can never assume either, that if someone lives a life of suffering that this is because of ‘evil’ deeds. Many may CHOOSE a life of suffering because of what it Awakens in them.. or to help another, etc.. We can NEVER EVER assume that we can be accurate in guessing why each Being lives the life they live. I cannot describe the relief… the refreshing, peaceful balm this Knowledge was for me. To finally gather this Truth that I’d yearned for all of my life… That all IS Good! That there IS sense and beauty all around. That no one is just ‘free-falling’ as it had seemed before! That God doesn’t just get to toy with us as He pleases with random ideas of tests, including rewards and punishments that just depend upon His current mood or mindset. While in this experience, out in the vast expanse of stars and planets, moons, and Knowledge, I Knew complete Trust for what felt like the first time. This was bliss for me. I had lived in fear and distrust and panic for 30 consecutive years…”
