American inspirational speaker and author Esther Hicks has a great suggestion for those moments when we begin to fret about something that is not working out the way we want it to. She cautions that our fretting, which feels like such a logical expression of our discomfort and anxiety, only serves to bring us MORE OF THE SAME.
Vibrations are attracted to each other. We are sending out a vibration of angst and we are attracting more angst into our life. And, if we have fully surrendered to this distressing position, we can get so dramatic about the situation and even up the vibrational ante with our philosophical renderings:
"I knew this would happen."
"This is the way it always goes."
In effect, we have placed our order with great emotion and drama, unaware of the fact that the Universe is the PERFECT delivery system and it gives back to us whatever we present. Whatever vibration we send out with our thoughts and emotions is the determining factor of what we will get back. Our perception of trouble brings more trouble.
"Really?" you might think "Thanks a lot. Just what I need...more trouble."
"I can't catch a break."
But the fact is, YOU CAN just by understanding the natural rhythm of the Universe and being willing to put some conscious effort into the messages you deliver to yourself.
Of course, there is more to the story. You are not going to be willing to consciously formulate a hopeful message if you haven't noticed these things...
The Universe is designed to bring you whatever experiences that you are attracted to.
Whatever you wish to experience will come to you when you ALLOW it...
when you don't mess things up with your fear of unworthiness and doubts and concerns,
when you trust that what you desire will be delivered to you in the perfect time.
All that you have to do is KNOW that this process will happen and anticipate the arrival of what you have dreamed.
Our home base here IS earth school and our lessons are supposed to be uber challenging. And this is no exception. This work is not easy. It takes some CUTTING EDGE awareness and wisdom and...curiosity. We are often unwilling to leave our old habits and default of victimhood because it feels so comfortable there. It's what we know and everybody talks like that...right?
See where that kind of thinking takes you? In circles of suffering...and why should you have to be stuck there because it's what everybody does?
Why not see for yourself? Experiment. Try feeling Esther Hick's new mantra, one which expresses so eloquently the way you would like things to be and celebrates, in advance, the "perfect" moment in which you get out of your own way and your desired vibrational wish makes its way to you.
Won't if be wonderful when...
