Your life is in your hands, but you must learn to gain control of your thoughts. All of your problems of fear, failure, and doubts are because your MIND is ruling you… Take control of your mind and your thoughts. Every day, bit by bit, watch your thoughts (The Secret Daily Teachings)
A monumental task but not impossible! Just got get (take back) control of the all the thoughts randomly running around like undisciplined children and regain order in the thinking and then order in life will follow! Can’t help but wonder where would I be now had I learned/knew about these teachings years ago when it was much easier to “dream” before LIFE beat me up and tarnished so many of my images. And of course I have to take responsibility for it was my thoughts and corresponding emotions that created the circumstances that beat me up. A difficult pill to swallow because one never entertain thoughts of doing harm to one’s self yet so many of us unknowingly do this every day and blame everything and everyone else for their problems and misfortune. I at times find myself trying think of what thoughts did I think that created this mess? And then what thought do I think to clean uo this mess? And then maintain those good thought & corresponding good feelings in spite of the current undesired circumstances….how bad do I want to be Happy?
You will notice that those who speak most of prosperity, have it. Those who speak most of health, have it. Those who speak most of sickness, have it. Those who speak most of poverty, have it. It is Law. It can be no other way…
The way you feel is your point of attraction, and so, the Law of Attraction is most understood when you see yourself as a magnet getting more and more of the way you feel. When you feel lonely, you attract more loneliness. When you feel poor, you attract more poverty. When you feel sick, you attract more sickness. When you feel unhappy, you attract more unhappiness. When you feel healthy and vital and alive and prosperous—you attract more of all of those things.

The “challenge” is separating the “feeling” from the undesired situation/circumstance. It is so easy to fall into the habitual emotional reaction & takes conscious effort not to give in to this way of thinking & feeling. Though there are days you feel continuously battered like an endless storm not able to find shelter long enough to “feel” & embrace the opposite/desired situation/circumstances and so the storm rages on. But there must be a way to find shelter long enough to find the better feelings that will slowly weaken the storm until it finally dissipates so that the sun can shine once again….or for the first time!
Sometimes we accidentally allow small problems to escalate and dominate our lives. If we get overcharged a few cents, it is irritating, but don’t let it ruin your day. There will always be small issues that irritate us; the secret is to be able to give them the miniscule level of importance they deserve.
It is funny when I first read this post the thoughts flowed on how I wanted to reply but between that time and sitting here in front of the computer those thoughts got brushed aside by other thoughts which then led to other thoughts and now having to try and bring myself back to this and actually that is a big irritation….but back to this topic.
It is interesting to see and notice what things irritate me to only get lumped on to the pile of negative “Ick” and what irritations just get laughed at, brushed aside and forgotten. Are these or can these be used as indicators for where we are mentally, emotionally and spiritually at that moment of time? Also, interesting how the little things that I do let bother me seem to add up quickly as more little irritating things continue to occur, some back to back. And then there is the customary “What next?” response (of course that is the clean version). Another common and daily irritation is things and tasks constantly making demands of my time, leaving me little to no time for any spiritual work or reading or listening to recordings and seminars. The weekend is almost over and I still have not gotten back to watching the Live Vortex of Creation Seminar, which I attempted to watch while at work but the things that I needed to do made it near impossible to watch the seminar. And I have pulled up the page to watch it but got pulled to one thing after another after another and now I have to go out to handle another task….and just got a text message from a friend telling me to take private time for myself today….and have yet to really to that today but it is something that he had to do in his life and get back control and now seeing it is something that I need to do as well but I am not in control of my life….my life is in control of me! I know I have gotten off subject here but sometimes it is just good to let the thoughts flow……
The only reason why people do not have what they want is because they are thinking more about what they don’t want than what they do want.
This is not the actual daily Teaching for today, it is one that I came across some time during the week and quickly wrote it down on a Post-it note and put it in my wallet, again as a reminder of what I need to be doing….and that is to STOP giving so much attention to everything that is wrong in my life and all the mounting problems and stress. Unfortunately I have developed a very strong habit of stressing and worrying over problems (espcially those involving money which is a chronic never ending problem) and just today got more financial bad news/problems so of course the “knee jerk” reaction is feeling much anxiety and stress and worry which then turns to anger and frustration which I know is NOT going to make this (and the other) problems go away but will just attract more situations and circumstances to give me what I am currently thinking and feeling thus keeping this vibration active. Instead I need to move myself emotional and mentally above and beyond this and the other financial problems and SEE, “FEEL” and BELIEVE in what is DESIRED! So I am trying to think about and find things to calm me down enough and ease the knot of stress in my stomach so that I can try to bump the vibrations up a few clicks towards a better feeling which if I can consistently do this every day, I will be in the vibration to attract that which is desired and those things undesired will fall away and out of my life. Needing a Spiritual Hug right about now……
Below are highlights posted on the Jerry and Esther Hicks Facebook page from yesterday’s (Saturday january 28. 2012) Live Vortex of Creation Workshop.
Abraham is telling the LA group… Nothing is an accident. You can be in alignment at any time, no matter what happens. – LIVE from Los Angeles, CA
But I find it is more difficult more times than others, as the “knee-jerk” response is to react to the situations and circumstances feeling angry, anxious, frustrated, irritated, hopeless, etc….And it is at these times when we most need to BE in alignment to help minimize these situations and circumstances that upset us which we should not (or at least try) allow ourselves to be upset feeding more energy into the negative undesired situation. (like I am trying very hard not to do now, feeding energy to a seemingly never ending hopeless situation).
Abraham is reminding the person in the hotseat… The Universe is not teaching lessons. You are always on your way to something wonderful, even when what you’re experiencing is not wonderful. – LIVE from Los Angeles, CA
Though it “feels” like at times we (I) are “stuck” in a garbage loop repeating the same thinsg again and again and again, going through the same (money & relationship) problems again and again and again, even when I say I am NOT doing this or that again and yet AGAIN I end up in the same “loop” or problems and undesired situations and circumstances! But if ALL of this is leading to something wonderful (BETTER) then that does give one hope for the future full of Abundance, Happiness, Real True Love, and Living One’s Dreams! Though an occasional “x miles to go” sign would help guage how much further/longer to go, because just like on a road trip going some place fun and desired you get more excited the closer you get to the destination, I would think this would also apply to The Path. But maybe there are these “signs” but they are so subtle that they get missed…..
Abraham is reminding the person in the hotseat… Indecision can be torturous. How much you need to torture yourself is the decision. – Abraham LIVE from Los Angeles
Indesciveness can be the reason for not acting on that gut feeling to do something that would put your closer to your desires or NOT do something that create more stress and problems in your life. Just need to learn these “feelings” and to trust them. Sometimes that Inner Voice cannot be heard over all the NOISE of the day and negative mental dialog.
Abraham is telling the person in the hotseat… Don’t freak out over too many specifics and details because they bog you down. There are no penalties in life – only clarity that is born. – LIVE from Los Angeles
I know this is very big road-bloack for me that I battle constantly with regards to trying to “see” what I desire AND “feel good” about that desire. I get myself bogged down in the how, the when, the details that are not my job YET I keep trying to make the details of how to get THERE my job and thus get caught up in this and less on “feeling good” which gets more and more difficult when the seemingly hopeless situation seems even more hopeless trying to work out the details in my head. Instead of just seeing the end result/desire fulfilled and most important “FEELING GOOD and HAPPY and FEELING JOY” Who would have thought that the simple “Happy Happy Joy Joy” song from Ren and Stimpy would have a deeper meaning!
In closing Abraham wanted the Los Angeles group to know… We want you to revel in the expansion of who YOU have caused US to become. The fullness of who you are is waiting for you to BE it in each moment. – LIVE from Los Angeles
There’s an expression in the physical environment that you use to entertain each other. (it doesn’t serve you very well) that says, “I worry that I’ll go down to the dock, and that my ship will have already come and gone. I’ll miss my boat.” And we say, another boat, another boat, another boat. You have no idea how many boats are coming to your dock. It’s a steady stream, and it doesn’t matter how many of them you’ve missed. The only thing that matters is what are you doing right now in your vibration? And you can tell what you’re doing right now in your vibration by the way you feel.
Excerpted from the workshop in Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, August 4th, 2001
Yes, I have had that “Missed the Boat” feeling many times (recently as well as many times during the past years) and it is at times challenging to think that there still will be another (other) boats coming to the dock…even harder to convince myself that those other boats be even BETTER boats! But the biggest challenge I am facing is in the raising my vibration and “feeling good”, especially when the energon levels are so very low and now finding that my work load is going to potentially increase even more over the next couple of weeks & months at both jobs which potentially will leave me with even less time and energy for the Work that I need to be doing! How does one “feel good” when one is so physically and mentally exhausted? I know, I can already hear Esther and Abraham saying….”You have to a find a way…..”
People say, “The joy is in the journey,” but they rarely understand what they are saying. You are in this focused time/space reality with goals and objectives that call you because as you identify a desire it literally summons life through you. Life summoning through you is what it’s all about, not the completion of anything.
Excerpted from the workshop in Chicago, IL on Sunday, November 1st, 1998 # 329
But the “inner fire” that burns from these desires must also be protected from being put out by other things or another person’s selfish desires. We must live our own life and follow our own paths and follow Our Heart. I have allowed dreams and desires die because of not staying true to my desires and my heart but listening to others or allowing fear to overwhelm and discourage me. Which is why I now speak very little of my desires unless I come across someone that I feel compelled to talk about it if I feel this person may help me or encourage me to press on regardless of what stands before me. But now my greatest foe is lack of time and resources to pursue my desires. There are days I think where would I be now had I not allowed past dreams to die or what would I be doing now if I were pursuing and working on current ones….but then reality snaps me back….but now knowing (and learning) these things I can approach my dreams and desires differently with more hope of waking up one day Living my Dreams!
Nothing needs to be fixed. Everything is unfolding perfectly. So when you stand in your now accepting that all is well, then from that vibration, you become surrounded by more and more evidence that all is well. But when you’re convinced that things are broken, that there is pollution, or that things have gone wrong, or that the government is doing conspiracies… then what happens is you get caught up in that vibration, and you begin to manifest that kind of stuff, and then you say, “See, I told you that things were going wrong.”
Excerpted from the workshop in North Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday, March 7th, 2000
And it is so easy to get caught up in that frame of mind and thinking, constantly giving attention to what is wrong or broken and then when more wrong things happen or more things “break” you then have the evidence to back it up. Just need to step outside of the drama and chaos and see above and beyond it to those things that feel good, enjoying that moment of thought where you do not see or give attention to this “background noise” and not let it affect or bother me. But there are times (too many) that I allow myself to be and feel irritated which only creates more situations to be and feel irritated, so if there is ever any doubt that the LOA does not work, seeing it work negatively should be proof enough, it is just having to turn this around to the positive and work in more productive ways that gets to be a daily challenge.
If you have a problem with a member of your family who is negative, begin by writing a list of all the things you appreciate about that person. Remember to include gratitude to them for giving you a great desire for positivity in your life; because that is a gift they are giving you. As you focus with all of your strength on appreciation, you will not only reduce your exposure to the negativity, but at the same time you will be attracting positive people into your life.
Get yourself on to the appreciation frequency, and the law of attraction can only surround you with people who are in a positive state.
There seem to be a lot of messages today expressing the need for “Me” to feel gratitude AND to “Feel Good”. I think the Universe is trying to give me a hint of what I need to do and need to be doing! The irony is that I have been subtley trying to get a friend to smile more and feel good to help them hopefully help them have a different outlook towards their situation. They know nothing of the Law of Attraction but I am hoping that by helping them to find things to “feel good” that the good they seek will manifest….yet, I have trouble doing this myself. I am also doing this because I seem to be seeing more and more people that I know having difficulties with finances due to either not having a job or slow times/business. But hoping that my sending good vibrations to them it will boomerang back to me as well. But I know this message is more about negative people (persons) in ones life and trying to protect myself from the negative vibrations being emitted and them keeping me down and holding me back with their constant complaining and endless dumping their problems in my lap and on my shoulders to “fix” for them while they sit and complain that it is taking me too long to “fix” their problems! This can be very draining and shields are failing but if I can find a way to make this list of things to appreciate (which can be a bit challenging) then the channel can be opened to allow the good to flow as well as opening the door to allowing the blessing(s) of more positive people.
We can never bring anything to us unless we are grateful for what we have. In fact, if somebody was completely and utterly grateful for everything, they would never have to ask for anything, because it would be given to them before they even asked. That is the power of Gratitude. from The Secret Daily Teachings by Rhonda Byrne
This is a powerful message, especially the part about if someone can be completely and utterly grateful for everything they would never have a need! How does one reach that level of gratitude including gratitude for the things undesired, ”challenges”, circumstances, even those persons who bring drama into my life, even them I would need to express gratitude….BUT the thought of never wanting anymore because it would be brought into my experience before I even asked as long as I sincerely expressed gratitude for those things I already have now….good and bad….challenging but not impossible!
