Life is very temporary, more so than we realize. We need to be ever mindful of our speech, actions, and thoughts as we create our own reality with our thoughts. We really do. Perhaps you know of a “Debbie Downer” who always seems to be in crisis mode, and may even use you for their sounding board. Every day their problems and challenges are shared with you. Perhaps you feel drained after talking with them? Maybe you were in a good mood before they came over and dumped all their problems out on the table for you?
If you find a friend’s life spinning out of control, and are concerned for them, remember one thing. We are all connected to an infinite source of energy. You and they are unlimited in potential and are only stymied by our own thoughts, or doubts. Gently remind them that what they focus on is what they are attracting more of in their life. When they start their broken record, try to move them off topic, and let them know wouldn’t it be better to feel better? Of course I’m not talking about grief that is honestly something that really needs to be talked about in order to heal. But when a person is so focused on how someone or something has done them wrong – somehow they keep bringing in the same sorts of situations to themselves.
Some very interesting reading I’ve been doing includes: Esther and Jerry Hicks – The Law of Attraction. Here is a passage that I highly recommend if you are feeling a bit out of balance:
“I like being here; I recognize the value and power of this time. I feel very good to be here. I see myself in a sort of total package, one that I know is of my own creating, and certainly a package of my choosing. I am full of energy in this picture of myself- tireless, and really moving through life experience without resistance. As I see myself gliding about, moving in and out of rooms, buildings, conversations, and in out of life experiences, I see myself flowing effortlessly, comfortably, and happily.
I see myself attracting only those who are in harmony with my current intent. And I am clearer and clearer in every moment about what it is I want…
The more you come to understand the power of the law of attraction the more interest you will have in deliberately directing your thoughts-for you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. Without exception, that which you give thought to is that which you begin to invite into your experience. When you think a little thought of something that you want, through the law of attraction, that thought grows larger and larger, and more and more powerful. When you think a thought of something you do not want, the law of attraction draws unto it, and it grows larger and larger, also. And so, the larger the thought grows, the more power it draws unto it, and then the more certain you are to receive the experience.
In this attraction-based universe there is no such thing as an exclusion. Your attention to it includes it in your vibration and if you hold it in your attention or awareness long enough, the law of attraction will bring it into your experience, for there is no such thing as “No”. To clarify when you look at something and shout, “No, I don’t want to experience that; go away!” then what you are actually doing is calling it into your experience. You live in an attraction-based universe. Your attention to it says, “Yes, come to me, this thing I do NOT want!” Fortunately here in your physical time-space reality, things do not manifest into your experience instantaneously. There is a wonderful buffer of time between when you begin to think about something and the time it manifests. That buffer of time gives you the opportunity to redirect your attention more and more in the direction of the things that you actually do want to manifest in your experience.
