I am reading Abraham/Hicks: The Power of Deliberate Creation
Although the though underlying this book is quite simple, if you look with knowing eyes, if your eyes are not the "knowing" types, it is going to be quite a challenge to follow the thought process that changes you from a wannabe to an owner and a doer of your desires.
What? My thoughts are positive... you say, and you prove it to me by saying: I am happy, I am great... but yet, your life proves just the opposite.
Your life is a mirror of your dominant thoughts and beliefs... and that is that. You don't have to look what your thoughts and beliefs are in your head, you can just look outside.
Now, how come that even people who know this haven't been able to move from misery to bliss?
There is a little hidden truth that is not as known as it could be, because our MacDonalds way of thinking drowns it out.
Truth #1: You can get from where you are to where you want to be, even if it is three thousand miles from you.
Truth #2: You can't get there in one jump, or even in two.
Truth #3: You can get from point A to point B to point C easily... but you can't get from A to Z in one jump.
So what are you saying, Sophie, you are confusing me...
Am I? If you are 80K in depth, it won't disappear at once. If you are 800K in depth... that won't disappear at once.
Both are your point A, and your job is to get to point B first.
But I don't mean start paying off your lowest debt first... though it is not a bad idea. I mean first take yourself from a vibrational state where you will continue repel money coming to you and debt rushing to you to a vibrational/emotional state where the mood and feeling of your emotion is slightly gentler and higher than it is now.
Imagine yourself 800K in debt. Can you? For me it is easier to imagine being in debt 10K... but that's me: I have no debt. So 10K would mean for me: deep in debt.
Now look at your thoughts: will you find that there is a great despair and hopelessness under all your hopeful and cheerful words of pretense optimism?
So what would be point B of a situation like that?
I have one that I can think of: 800K is like 10K... once the ice cap starts to melt the whole iceberg is ready to go, unless I start adding to it...
Now, that is not such a bad thought, is it? It talks about something that gives you a glimmer of hope that can't be denied. but, you say, I will probably first need to add to that mountain before I can melt it...
Well, how about (and this will be point C! Pay attention!) if I start building a big fire and to build it and I still add to the iceberg temporarily, it still is the beginning of the end of the iceberg: because a big fire can melt any size of iceberg... so I am home free, right?
Do you see that I am starting to take responsibility for the solution instead of watching that mountain grow and feel incapacitated and incapable to make a dent in it?
Well, this is the Deliberate Creation of Abraham/Hicks, and it is wonderful, and it is gentle, and it works.
Here is an article I found: it is good, and it looks yet another way to increase your vibration to match what you want just a little better.
Think Like An Optimist
Many experts will tell you that when you change the way you look at things, you will change your life â€“ and itâ€™s true. If youâ€™re sitting around expecting the worst of things, youâ€™ll be certain to find the worst of things. Youâ€™ll find all of your mistakes along the way to your goals. Youâ€™ll notice all of the problems with your plan. And then youâ€™ll stop trying because youâ€™ve noticed that everything is going wrong.
This is where a lot of people fumble on the way to their happiness and the changes that they want to make. By trying so hard to recognize the bad things in their life, they forget about those things that are working well.
For just one day, try to see your life through the eyes of an optimist â€“ a complete optimist. This might seem silly at first, but what youâ€™re doing is bringing another perspective, an objective perspective into your view of the world.
Optimists look at the world as though it only has good things to offer and in that thinking, they see the opportunities for learning and growth, rather than the obstacles in their way. Instead of getting upset about the car that cut them off in traffic, they hope that there wasnâ€™t an emergency that caused the driver to need to go so fast.
Optimism takes practice. What you might want to do is start thinking about your life as though it were the life of a good friend that you have. When you sense that something is wrong in your day, try to change your thinking to being more positive. For example, when your friend loses his or her job, you donâ€™t tell her that it was because they were the worst employee (though you might tell yourself this), you tell them that it wasnâ€™t their fault and that there must have been another reason.
When you start treating yourself and your life the way that you would treat a good friend, you start to see possibility in life, rather than problems.
An optimist is simply someone that strives to look for the good in everything. Just for today, you can try to do the same. Is it a realistic way to be every day? Who knows? But what you are doing is allowing your life to be as wonderful as you want it to be, and maybe as wonderful as it already is. You just werenâ€™t looking for it.
