“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions, and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” Kahlil Gibran
“You have many ways of measuring your success. In your society, your dollars are a measure of success, your trophies are a measure of success – but from our perspective, the existence within you of positive emotion is your greatest measure of success.” Abraham, (channeled by Esther Hicks) LAW OF ATTRACTION
TIP 37: LOVE WHAT YOU DESIRE
Love is a powerful attractor and creative force. You must really love what you desire now – love it into creation, because love is a creative act. If you desire money, you must love money (many people fear, blame, reject, judge or hate money, which all repel money). If you want money for what it can bring you, then love the things you really want and desire and call for those directly. If you want love, you must love love itself, do not fear or reject love. Love what you desire with all of your heart, and really feel how real that love is in order to bring your desire into reality. Everything is energy and neutral until you energize it with emotion.
TIP 38: THE STATE OF WANTING
The state of wanting indicates that something is missing or is not there – it signifies lack. What you focus on is what you create, so wanting just keeps you wanting and feeling empty, creating the perpetual hunger of “never enough” and needing more, which leads to addiction. Desire comes from the heart and directs you to what you would like to create and experience. Instead of wanting, enact your power of choice and choose what you desire to attract.
Love what you desire to attract. What do you truly desire? Admit this to yourself. Is there anything that you need to release in order to reach your dreams? Answer this on a separate piece of paper please, and not in your journal. If you do not know what you need to release then do what I do. I ask Archangel Michael – as taught to me by Dr. Doreen Virtue. At the top of your sheet write to Archangel Michael, “what do I need to release to be fully on my path and purpose?” Then just start writing, and if no words come through you then put down on the paper whatever symbols or pictures come through you. (Do not think! There is no thinking involved. You are only taking dictation from Archangel Michael) Whatever comes is perfect at this time. You may have filled a page or more. When you finish writing or drawing, then take the page/s and ceremoniously destroy them by burning them, immersing them in water or burying them while simultaneously declaring, “I now fully release anything that is not for my highest good.” I can tell you that I have done this more than a few times over the last 9 years. I prefer to burn or immerse; however, I have no doubts whatsoever that burying works just as well. When you finish this ceremony, then sit again and after taking some time to relax, write in your journal what steps you can take to make your dreams come true. (hint, if you don’t know what steps – ask Archangel Michael!) Baby steps work! If you are releasing old beliefs, choosing even one new belief is a great beginning.
How are you doing with your gratitude practice? Kick it up one notch today. Whatever feels right. If you can’t think of how, then when you go on your daily walk, say the words thank you, sincerely, as each foot touches the ground for the first 90 seconds of your walk. This is a practice I do frequently – suggested by Rhonda Byrne (of THE SECRET). She calls it the magic footstep practice. Rhonda says in 90 seconds most of us will complete 100 steps and will have said thank you the same number of times as Albert Einstein did every day! Our gratitude practice, done consistently, helps us to become much more aware and alert. The more aware and alert we are, the more grateful we become and the more easily we attract our dreams. Successful manifestors are very grateful for everything they already have in their lives and thereby attract even more to be grateful for.
Our spirit guides tell us that every situation in our lives is teaching us how to love. We cannot leave something until we love it. We are tied to things we don’t like. If we hate something we will be drawn to it over and over again (even if the person or form changes) until we love it. Once we love it, we are free from it.
Every uncomfortable situation is teaching us the valuable lessons we need to learn. If we do not learn these lessons in the job, relationship/s etc. then we will create similar situations in the next job and relationship and so forth until we master the lesson. Then, we do not need to create it again. No experience is for nothing. Our Higher Self knows this to be true. It may be that we are not conscious of what an experience is for; however, one way or another, every experience broadens our perspective. From the perspective of Abraham ( a collection of non-physical beings channeled by Esther Hicks) we are in a process of eternal growth: “What we want you to understand is that you never get it completed. You are not like a table that is imagined, then created, and then is finished. You are continually in the state of becoming. You are in the process of growth, eternally. But you are always that which you are in this moment.” (THE LAW OF ATTRACTION)
Clarity and emotion (positive or negative) speeds up the manifestation process. Clarity brings the speed. As you get more clear about what you want ( and are no longer contradicting it with opposing thoughts) you will enable the Laws of the Universe to do their work and Abraham says that “you will notice that you will not need to offer so much action to compensate for your inappropriate thoughts.” As you continue to discipline yourself and to focus and study and become an ascended master ( yes – you!) and employ your deliberate intent and thought to harness the powers of the Universe – you will dis-cover that you are able to accomplish more in less (earthly) time.
Give your attention only to what you want.
If you are finding that your desires are not manifesting as quickly as you wish, remember that Divine Timing is involved – but also be aware that you may be focusing at times upon your desires and then at other times the opposite of what you desire which means that you are not allowing a steady and forward motion to occur.
Take your actions in joy.
“When you are taking action in your now, and it is not action in joy, it is our absolute promise to you that it will not lead to a happy ending. It cannot. It defies the Law. Rather than being so ready to jump into action to get the things you want, we say think them into being; see them, visualize them, and expect them – and they will be. And you will be guided, inspired, or led to the perfect action that will bring about the process that will lead you to that which you seek… and there is a great difference between that which we have spoken and the way most of the world is going about it.” Amen, Abraham!
The Law of Attraction, consciously employed, will lead to new relationships and activities as you become more sensitive and aware of energies. Old relationships and activities often begin to drop away naturally.
Our dear friend, Emmanuel, who resides in the spirit world says:
You dear souls walk so cautiously
as you enter the Garden of Eden.
Don’t you know
that it’s your rightful home?
There is such fear
when the thought of complete fulfillment
comes into your consciousness.
You are so identified with the seeking
that the finding becomes a threat.
Indeed, it is the most difficult thing
in the entire human experience –
to claim your Self, your Life, your Light,
your Truth, and your God. (EMMANUEL’S BOOK, complied by Pat Rodegast & Judith Stanton)
Love is the way to walk in gratitude.
Love & Light, Monica
