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, or 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 Law of Deliberate Creation, and by your ability to do that, you are here.
Go forth, giving thought to what you want, attracting life experience to help you decide what you want, and once you have decided, giving thought only unto that. Most of your time will be spent collecting data—data that will help you decide what it is you want… Your real work is to decide what you want and then to focus upon it, for it is through focusing upon what you want that you will attract it. That is the process of creating: giving thought to what you want, so much thought, and such clear thought, that your Inner Being offers forth emotion. And as you are giving thought, with emotion, you become the most powerful of all magnets. That is the process by which you will attract (what you want) into your experience.
Many of the thoughts that you will be thinking will not be powerful in their attracting, not in the beginning— not unless you stay focused upon them long enough that they become more. For as they become more in quantity, they become more in power; as they are becoming more in quantity, and more in power—the emotion that you will be feeling, from your Inner Being, will be greater.
When you think thoughts that bring forth emotion— you are accessing the power of the Universe. Go forth, (we would say) on this first day of life experience, knowing that your work is to decide what you want— and then to focus upon that.
But we are not talking to you on the first day of your life experience. You have been here for a while… Most of you have been seeing yourself, not only through your own eyes (in fact, not even primarily through your own eyes) but through the eyes of others; therefore, many of you are not now currently in the state of Being that you want to be.
We intend to offer you a process whereby you can achieve the state of Being that is of your choosing so that you can access the power of the Universe and begin attracting the subject of your wanting, rather than the subject of what you feel is your actual state of Being. For, from our perspective, there is a very great difference between that which now exists—which you call your “reality” — and that which your reality really is.
Even if you sit in a body that is not healthy or in a body that is not the size, shape, or vitality, that you choose; in a lifestyle that does not please you; driving an automobile that embarrasses you; interacting with others that do not bring you pleasure—we want to assist you in understanding that while that may seem to be your state of Being, it need not be. Your state of Being is the way you feel about yourself in any point in time.
Your words will not bring you immediate manifestations of what you are asking for, but the more often you say them, and the better you feel while you are saying them, the purer or less contradicted your vibration will be. And soon your world will be filled with these things you have spoken about… Words alone do not attract, but when you feel emotion when you speak, that means your vibration is strong—and the Law of Attraction must answer those vibrations.
