I think we are all familiar with the law of attraction. We attract what ever our dominant thoughts are. We are responsible for whatever is in our lives and if it is not what we want we can create something different. We are extremely powerful creative beings. Our imagination is our creative tool. Our imagination is God or Source expressing through us. When we have a clear, concise image of what we desire and feel the feeling of having it, it is truly, at that point, in the works in the Universal subconscious mind.
Now, from there how do we hold that intention without tripping ourselves up? How do we keep our eyes focused upward instead of on what appears to be reality? That is the question. We all have great experiences of feeling strong and powerful. Really feeling connected to Source and knowing that what we desire, desire’s us. Then we go through the period between creating our desire in imagination and seeing it manifest in the physical. This is where it can get tough. Holding on to the image and the feeling of the desire fulfilled and allowing, but not focusing on, what is occurring outside at the same time can be tricky
I want to share some ideas with you that have been very helpful to me. First off what we must know is that we are creating desires constantly because we are the embodiment of creativity which is God. I have talked before about the concept of Divine Dissatisfaction. We deserve the very best that we can imagine because of who we are, children of the Divine, and if we are experiencing less than best we should not be satisfied with that. In fact that dissatisfaction is our inspiration to create something better.
Reality makes us desire better. We cannot desire anything that is not already within us to create. So the simple fact that we desire something better is us identifying with our God Self. If we were not pure limitless potential I don’t think we would have a concept of something better. Think about that; that is rich.
Abraham puts it this way; “Reality gives birth to the dream, or the desire. But once you have the dream you want to spend more and more time focusing on it and not the reality.” What you focus your attention on expands. What you take your attention away from starves. The truth is that the dream feels better which is why you desire it and the more you focus on feeling better the better you feel – law of attraction. But what is the hook? How do you catch that feeling that raises your vibration? By occupying your Dream and living from it. Mike dooley says “Build your magnificent castle in your imagination and look at life through the windows from the inside.
A little over a week ago I was guided back to The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price. I was introduced to this book over two years ago and it played a major part in my growth. I just have to spend a minute talking about how I was guided back. First the book came up while I was meditating. Within a couple of days I was listening to Kathleen Peterson on Sageville and she was talking about a group that she is a part of and they were studying The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price. Then a couple of days later my husband was telling me that he was talking to a friend of his at work and telling him that his employer is not his supply but he, himself is his supply, a principle from The Abundance Book. Now that is not everyday conversation for him so I had to smile and really dig into the book because that just told me that there was something in it that I was ready for now that I wasn’t ready for the first time I read it. In fact there was a lot in it that I have had to grow into. It was the first book I read on Science of Mind/New Thought. It is the book that lit that stick of dynamite for me and turned me on to my current area of study. Now, I have to say that my major teachers over the past 25 years all taught these principles. It has been a part of my life for a long time I just didn’t have a name for it.
That book set me on a mission and that mission is that I have to learn more and more about who I truly am as an expression of God. I believe that is it possible to identify so fully with that God Self that we can release the concept of limitation and look only to Source to fulfill every need and I want to know how.
John Randolph Price says “You magnify this Master Self that you are in truth by realizing that you and God are one. All that this one Presence and Power of the Universe is, You are – and all that this Infinite Mind has is yours”.
So your consciousness of that truth accesses its expression in your life. That is amazing and that is what I was drawn back to the book to experience. What you focus on expands and if you focus and meditate on the limitless Presence within you as your source “reality” outside of you begins to change.
“When you withdraw your attention from those things that are not pleasing, and you put your attention upon those things that are pleasing, those pleasing things begin to become more abundant; and those not-pleasing things become more rare. Until, eventually, those not-pleasing things cannot be part of your experience because you will have eliminated your attraction factor from your vibration… What you think and what you get always matches.”
