The Universe does not know if the vibration you are offering is because of what you are imagining, or because of what you are observing. In either case, it is responding.
Emotion is your guidance or your response to your vibration.
Your emotion does not create. Emotion is your indicator of what you are already creating.
As you think, you vibrate. And it is your vibrational offering that equals your point of attraction. So, what you are thinking and what is coming back to you is always a vibrational match. The emotion (your Guidance System) is telling you what's coming.
Quote selected by Jerry and Esther Hicks
From the workshop recording 3/7/00
Then our friend asks the best question of the day, or maybe ever, as she says, "You talked about this hub, this hub of the wheel, and how maybe I could tune myself to who I really am." And we say, when you start, segment by segment, experience by experience, reaching for a better feeling thought, reaching for a better feeling thought, reaching for a better feeling thought, reaching for a better feeling thought...
Before you know it, on every subject that is active within you, you're over here in alignment with Source. And now you are a bright beam of wellbeing everywhere you go. Which means murderers could never find you, even people who are rude in traffic cannot find you, even people who aren't attentive in a hotel can't find you. In other words, when you are in alignment with the you that you have become, only that which is a match to what you have become can come to you. And anything less than that is a symptom of your scattered, we love you, sloppy thought!
You use many different labels to describe this source of Energy that flows to this physical plane from the Nonphysical. It's a very high, fast frequency. It's a pure frequency, and by pure we mean not contradicted. When you say, "I want to be well" and you think about what wellness is, that's a pure vibration When you say, "I want to be well. I'm afraid of being sick," that's not a pure vibration. When you're making your statements of desire for wellness from your fear of illness, that's not a pure vibration.
There is so much we would like to tell you about the selfish nature of every cell in this Universe... Jerry brought a very big question to the forum. He said, "Abraham, I've heard something all my life, and I'm wondering if it is true. Are clams really all that happy?" And we said, it may seem like an unimportant or even silly question on the face of it.
You can't take a subject and just because it's important get Law of Attraction to respond to you differently. If you feel bad, you're locked off of your signal, which means everything you want is now being jeopardized because you are choosing a topic - and you say, "Well, it's really, really an important topic!"
And we say, well, it surely must be because you're giving up life force, you're giving up clarity, you're giving up health now and in the future, you're giving up your bodily conditions functioning properly, you're giving up the mate that you're wanting to attract, you're giving up the dollars. You're giving up every single thing - for this moment in time (not forever). But for as long as you're choosing this "important topic," you are holding yourself apart from what you want.
Just like when you set your radio tuner on 98.6, you can’t hear what’s being broadcast on 101 FM: Your frequencies have to sync up. So, the frequency of your desire and the frequency of your day-to-day thought about your desire have to be on the same vibrational wavelength. And how do you know when it is? It feels good to think about it. How do you know when it isn’t? It doesn’t feel good to think about it.
So, it might be a good idea to start talking about where you’re going instead of about where you are, and where you’ve been. Because, as you talk about where you are, or about where you’ve been, that’s the signal that you offer—and that’s the signal that everything Universally is responding to. That’s why it feels sometimes like you’re stuck on this spot. You’re not stuck because things are always changing. But if it feels like you’re stuck, it’s because they’re changing to the same thing over and over again.
If we were talking to you on your first day of physical life experience, this is what we would be saying;
Welcome, little one, to planet Earth. There is nothing that you cannot be, do, or have. You are a magnificent creator, and you are here by virtue of your powerful and deliberate wanting to be here. You have specifically applied the wondrous Science of Deliberate Creation, and by your ability to do that, you are here.
Go forth, giving thoughts to what you want, attracting life experiences to help your decide what you want, and once you have decided, giving thought only unto that.
As you are reaching, in a determined way, for the Path of Least Resistance, anything that is resistant within you will certainly pop up within 20 days. And as you are deliberately reaching for the Path of Least Resistance and finding it, then you will have shifted your vibration on every subject that is important to you, and you will become resistant free.
You just have to want to feel good more than anything else. That's the only criteria that is necessary in order for you to achieve this. You have to really want to feel good. You have to want to feel good so much that you're wanting to reach for a better feeling thought any time you are in the midst of one that doesn't feel so good.
Nothing is more important than that I feel good. That's the mindset that you have to be at. Nothing is more important than that I feel good.
