Good day and I hope you are having a great week. Today I wanted to go into the magnificent being that you are and all the power that is available to you.
I read a quote by Bob Proctor that said “…Another thing you should know about Spirit is that it is a power which is forever flowing into and though you (we also call this power THOUGH). But as Spirit or thought flows into you, you CHOOSE the image you will then form with it”. Read that quote again and let it sink in. Specially take note of the last part. That implication has an immense amount of responsibility with it. It means you actually have to control your thoughts. Well you don’t really have to if you want to just go about reacting to your reality instead of creating it. I am guessing however, since you are reading this blog, that you actually want to manifest your reality instead of being a byproduct of it.
Enthusiasm comes from the Greek “en theos” meaning “In God”. Whatever your religious beliefs may be is irrelevant here. Do not look at this from a Theological point of view if it distracts you from understanding the core of the matter. If you are spiritual then this should give you comfort. If you are not, then look at it purely from the stand point of logic, and take it as a learned skill set to succeed.
When you are in the zone, or in the groove of things and all is going well, how do you feel? You feel awesome. You are enthusiastic, because you are at one with the source energy that, yes you guessed it “flows into and through you” all the time. The same energy that is in everything in this universe is in you. You are what Esther and Jerry Hicks call in your “natural state of well being”. Your cork is floating unrestricted. It means that your vision of things is in line with what you see in your reality. That only happens when you have come to realize that your thoughts are what makes your reality. You may be doing this automatically without even thinking about it. Some people call this confidence in your abilities and others may call this faith in your ability. It is all semantics. Don’t get lost in the little things. Grasp the truth.
There are however times for all of us when we are faced with challenges. How you feel when those times occur, will shape your destiny. It is really simple to feel great when things are going well, but we do not operate in a vacuum. There are other incidences that will merge with our vibration. You stub your toe by accident when you get up in the morning. You suddenly start to decline in your vibration, and even though the energy that created this world is flowing through you, you now see the picture differently in your thoughts, i.e. that force that is in you is now being reshaped by your thoughts. Consequently your reality will be reshaped to manifest those new thoughts.
Do you see why it is so important to have some kind of “faith”? You need a place of comfort and solace to turn to when the fecal matter hits the oscillating percolator. You need a “rock” to steady yourself. You HAVE TO keep control of your thoughts when things do not go your way and make sure you’re thoughts do not betray you. Keeping your thoughts positive at all times, or at the very least neutral is imperative to you receiving what you desire.
Why is this so important? Because you cannot Yo-yo your energy and expect to achieve any progress. Rhonda Byrne in her second book The Power pointed out that you only need to feel good 51% of the time to have all that you wanted. You have to progress forwards. The sad thing is that with all the hustle and bustle of our modern life, we tend to spend most of our thought on negative things. We are taking 2 steps back for every step we take forwards. We start our day with visualizing great things, but then when our kids start throwing a tantrum we lose it. We spend 15 minutes meditating every day, but then we spend 45 minutes listening to the local news while sitting in the rush hour traffic on the way to work. You see my point? This is much like what I alluded to in my post “DON’TSHOOT YOURSELF IN THE FOOT” a few weeks ago. It is not what you say, it is your emotions that dictate what comes into your reality and it is all cumulative.
This is why I love what Esther and Jerry Hicks teach as their core values and teachings of Abraham. “Nothing, absolutely nothing is more important than you feeling good right now.” Keep track of the things that will show up to make you take a step back. Use it as a game. The object of this game is to see who loses their cool first. Don’t let things illicit emotions of fear, worry, hate, and anger in you. Control how you react to your situations and you WILL CONTROL your reality.
I hope you enjoyed this post. As always please feel free to comment and share your thoughts on my Facebook page and don’t forget to followme on Twitter. Until next Tuesday, my best wishes for your success.
