We can say we want success, but any time we are agreeing with conditions that are difficult, any time we talk about how life is unfair, or give any type of energy that is of a lower nature or out of harmony with the thing we say we want, we actually are creating resistance with the very thing we want.
How do we open up? By being in agreement with all that is prosperous and using every means at our command to make it easy for prosperity, abundance, and the free flow of life to be in our experience. – Mary Manin Morrissey
If you’re saying you want success and then complaining on Facebook or in any other venue, you’re pushing success away. Energy flows where focus goes. So it’s important to focus on what you want and not what you don’t.
Or if you want to be in a relationship, but then are focusing and talking about how lonely you are and how you can’t find anyone… that is not conducive to meeting the love of your life. But sometimes it’s tough to stop thinking negatively… especially if you’ve done if for a long time and it has become second nature.
There’s a great passage from Abraham: For every pleasing thing, there is an unpleasing counterpart, for within every particle of the Universe is that which is wanted as well as the lack of that which is wanted. When you focus upon an unwanted aspect of something in an effort to push it away from you, it only comes closer, because you get what you give your attention to whether it is something that you want or not. It is up to you to focus upon and attract what is wanted.
Sometimes it feels like you cannot stop thinking about the negative counterpart to what you’re wishing to manifest. It doesn’t mean that when you catch yourself thinking this way you should try to force feed yourself positive thoughts about that goal. It’s enough to just think positively about anything. Then you can naturally and more easily transition to thinking positive thoughts about that which you want to attract.
Like anything, this all gets better with practice. You learn to apply it to every situation naturally. Some are obviously easier than others, but it really is worth learning to retrain your mind to actively choose the thoughts you want vs. thinking by old default patterns.
You deserve everything amazing in this life… Happy Manifesting!
