Do you know what you are wanting? Are you enjoying the evolution of your desire? Do you like that fresh, new feeling of a new desire just hatched; the awareness that there is something more to move toward, even before it is manifested? Do you still like that?
That is the most significant question, and your coming to a confident answer of yes is a most significant thing for you, because when you have reached the place where a new, unfulfilled desire feels life-giving to you, then you have completely reconnected with who you really are.
When there is something that you desire and it has not yet manifested, and you cannot yet see the path through which it will manifest, and you are discouraged, then you are forgetting that you are an Eternal Being and that you never get it done. But when there is a new, unfulfilled desire, and instead of torturing you with its absence, instead it calls you with its idea–then you are Source Energy, physically embodied, and right on track.
So often, our physical friends feel frustration in their unachievement of something, as if once it manifests, then everything will be better. And while we do agree that it is fun to manifest, and we wish for you that your every desire be fulfilled, we want to remind you that when each desire is fulfilled, many more will be newly hatched.
And when you finally relax and accept that you and we are all Eternal Beings, and that we never get it done, then sometimes, perhaps if you will let it, it will take the sting out of what is not fulfilled. When you are no longer feeling uncomfortable about what is not fulfilled, but are satisfied with what-is, while you are eagerly reaching for more, now you are in the perfect vibrational stance to allow steady fulfillment of ever-evolving new ideas.
When you stand in your place, observing what-is, and letting what-is be primarily the reason, or the basis, for the vibration that you offer, what-is cannot change, because your vibration is only about what-is.
Law of Attraction says, that which is like unto itself is drawn. So, if you stand in an awareness that you don’t have enough money, and you talk about it and you feel around it, and you perpetuate a continuing vibration of not enough money, even though you’re asking for more, and even though you may be offering action which should accommodate more–more cannot come because it is vibrationally different from the vibration that you are usually offering.
And so, an attitude of satisfaction about what-is, an attitude of making the best of what-is while you are eagerly anticipating an evolution of what-is–that’s the perfect vibrational stance.
Optimism brings you so much; pessimism keeps it from coming. Eagerness brings you so much; disappointment keeps it from coming. Happy anticipation brings you so much; discouragement keeps it from coming. Joy and love and appreciation brings you so much, while anger and depression and fear keep it from coming.
Now, those emotions don’t actually keep it from coming. They are just indicators that while you feel that way–it’s not coming. In other words, your emotions are your indicator of what you are doing with your vibrational mix. Emotions are indicators of your Vibrational mix.
So, the happier you are, the more you are allowing who you really are and what you really want to come. The more unhappy you are, the more you are resisting it.
We call this gathering the Art of Allowing as compared to the art of resisting. In other words, allowing your connection with who you are, allowing the receiving of what you’ve been asking for. And the easiest way to hear “Allowing” is, letting in the good stuff–letting in what is naturally Well-Being, and what is naturally yours.
Sometimes when we talk about Allowing, people misunderstand and they think that Allowing means finding something unwanted and just putting up with it–allowing whatever is to be, and not fussing over it. That isn’t what we mean by Allowing at all. By Allowing, we mean, finding, through choosing thought, things that feel good when you think them, and practicing those kinds of thoughts that feel good, so often, that they become the dominant vibrational proclivity within you. In other words, you just practice it until it’s easiest to go there.
The Art of Allowing, is deliberately choosing thoughts that feel good, with an ear to how the thought feels as it evolves within you. The Art of Allowing, is wanting so much to feel good, that whether you are perusing the past or the present, or the future, you’re deliberately looking for the best-feeling thought that you can find. And as you choose the best-feeling thought and practice it until it becomes a sort of natural feeling within you, then more and more of that which you want flows to you.
There is not a source of illness and there is not a source of poverty, and there is not a source of darkness. You know that. You don’t say, “The sun came up this morning and brought the light, and the blob came up tonight and brought the darkness.” You understand that there is a Source that can be muted or resisted, or disallowed, and that’s how it is with Well-Being. Well-Being is natural to you.
Comparatively speaking, proportionately speaking, Well-Being is so huge and the lack of it is so small. So how does lack of Well-Being get such a foothold in anyone’s experience? It all has to do with the vibrational airtime you give it. In other words, the more you look for reasons to feel good, the more you find the vibration of that. And the more you find the vibration of that, the more Law of Attraction brings you other things that match it. Haven’t you noticed that sometimes you can get on a positive roll? And haven’t you noticed that sometimes you can get on a negative roll? When you get focused upon something that doesn’t feel good–Law of Attraction will bring you more things like it.
As humans become more observers and less deliberate thinkers, then you can get more of what-is and less of what you are wanting. In other words, most people offer a tremendous amount of their vibrational outpouring in response to what they are observing. And that’s why you want so much to control the circumstances around you. When you look at circumstances that make you feel good, it feels good. When you look at circumstances that don’t make you feel good, it doesn’t feel good. And then you say, “We’ve got to do something about controlling these circumstances. We need more laws. We need more rules. We need to contain the others. We need more parental guidance. We need more governmental control. We need more protection against this and this, and this.”
And what we want you to realize, is that there is no protection against a vibration that you achieve, becauseLaw of Attraction says, that which is like unto itself is drawn. So, if you look at that thing that you want, often, and you talk about it, and you say yes to it, then you achieve vibrational harmony with it–and it must come into your experience.
But when you look at that thing that you don’t want, and you shout no at it, it must come into your experience, because this is a Universe based upon attraction–it is all about inclusion. There is no exclusion in an attraction-based Universe.
Every time you spend time looking at something unwanted, you just practice the vibration that attracts it to you. That’s why diseases get worse after diagnosis, usually, for awhile, until somebody convinces you that there is a remedy that you can focus upon.
Our encouragement to you is that you make a decision today and practice it every day from now on, that says: I am one who makes the best of every situation.
When you are making the best of something, no matter how bad it is, it’s got to get better. And as it gets a little better, and you still make the best of it, it’s got to get better. And as it’s still not very good, but you’re making the best of it–it’s got to get better.
Sometimes, you catch yourself deliberately making the worst of something, and exaggerating your problem. And we know where you got that. When you were little, you had to plead a pretty needy case to your parents who appeared to be the vortex through which all your Well-Being came. And when you said, “I really want something,” their answer was often, “But you don’t need that. ” And so, you developed, very carefully, deliberately calculated patterns of expressing need to those that you believed were the givers of the goods. “I neeeed it! See how I’m suffering without it?” And we say, it might have worked a little bit with your parents as you eked out a mediocre improved life, but it does not work with the Universe that has the ability to grant all desires.
Whatever it is you are achieving vibrational harmony with is what you are living. If you ever want to know what the vibrational content of your outpouring is, just look at the manifesting around you, because the manifesting around you is always a perfect Vibrational Match to the vibration that is dominant within you.
You are here because you are wanting to really beDeliberate Creators. And we want you to know that aDeliberate Creator is really a deliberate feeler. A Deliberate Creator is one who says, “I want so much to feel good, because when I feel good, I’m in alignment with that which is my Source.” A Deliberate Creator does not demand that circumstances change so that you can have a better-feeling response to the circumstances. A Deliberate Creatorsays, “I will choose–from what seems to be available–the very best-feeling thought, past, present or future, that I can find, and I will fixate on it until it becomes the reason for my vibrational offering. And I know that Law of Attraction will then accumulate around that vibrational offering. And then, I will reach for the better thought and the better thought, and the better thought.” And what you will discover is that there is always a better thought.
There is always an even-happier thought than the happy thought you’re thinking now. There is always even a better feeling–your capacity to achieve a better feeling is unlimited.
Source expands to the desire that is produced within you. So you said, “I love the idea of going forth into this physical time-space-leading-edge-reality on Planet Earth. I love the idea of the variety that is there. I love the idea of all of the others that I will co-create with. And together, we will, for one another, stimulate new ideas–new ideas that have never been before unto all of the Universe. And with each new idea that is born, I know that Source has the resources to flood to my new idea. All I have to do is flow with my new idea, too.”
So, you stand in this place where contrast produces a desire within you–an unfulfilled desire–a desire that has not yet been manifested. And if you will, in the moment of the new, fresh desire being born, turn your attention to the new idea and think about how it will be, and feel the refreshment of the new idea, then Source flows through you and to you, through you and to you, through you and to you, in this life-giving format. But if the contrast stimulates you to the new idea, and then you stand where you are, looking at where you stand, and you say, “Oh, I want this new thing, but look where I stand in relationship to it. I feel so far from this new thing that I want.” Now you’re beating the drum of what-is. And when you beat the drum of what-is, you are vibrationally resistant to the new idea.
So, the Art of Allowing is about recognizing the fresh, newness of the new idea, and as quickly as possible achieving vibrational alignment with the new idea.Deliberate Creating at its best.
Every time you practice the beating of the drum of something desired–Law of Attraction brings it closer. But every time you beat the drum of what-is, Law of Attraction holds it to you. There is much about your life that you want to keep–So beat those drums. There is much in your life you want to keep–So beat those drums.
Every day we hear Jerry and Esther talking about the perfection of their life. On and on and on, and on, they go. They have a motor coach that they travel in that delights them so much, because it is home away from home but always feeling as if they are home, and they talk about how wonderful it is over and over and over, and over. Anyone not understanding, listening to them, would think they had gone mad as they recount to one another how lovely this is, and how good thaat is, and how much they appreciate this.
When you find things that you appreciate and you use them as your point of focus, your world has to get better on all other fronts.
You could have 99 things going wrong in your life and one thing going right, and if you would beat the drum of that one thing going right, the other 99 would either have to go away, or improve, because Law of Attractioncannot abide in your vibration something that does not match.
You cannot feel good and be sick at the same time. You cannot appreciate something and blame something at the same time.
As you begin to practice, with a deliberate orientation, your vibration that feels good while you practice it, your life has to get better–Law of Attraction says that it must.
