Even if something that you really want has not yet manifested, do you feel joyful anyway? Wanting is a good thing because when you get to the place that unfulfilled desire feels fresh like it did when you were two or three or four, then you have returned to the vibrational stance that you have always intended.
From your broader, Non-physical perspective, you understand that there is no question about you being able to receive anything that you desire, because, from that vantage point, you understand the Laws of the Universe - you understand that when you ask, it is always given.
And so, there is not a particle of discouragement or worry about things not yet manifested, because it is so clearly understood that all you have to do is focus and relax and allow it to be.
In your physical format, you get caught up in a feeling of competition. You worry that someone else might get your prize, when, in reality, there is prize enough for everyone. You are the creator of your prize and the Universe will deliver it to you. It is not possible that you could be deprived of something that you want because someone else achieves it - that could not possibly be. In fact, the Universe expands in direct proportion to the desires that you conjure here. The Source Energy Stream exists in its powerful, focused force because of your focusing of your desires.
There are three steps, simple steps, (really, laws are like that, aren't they? Simple in theory and a little trickier in application.
Step One is ask and you can't stop doing that; preference is born constantly out of your observing and remembering and focusing and imagining. So, your asking is the byproduct of your living in this focused environment.
Step Two is not your work; Source answers what you ask for. It answers the cells in your body. It answers spoken requests; Source answers unspoken requests: your vibrational signal, your preference, your desire.
Step Three is what this essay is all about. Step Three is about you bringing yourself into vibrational alignment with your desire. The reason that, often, physical friends are not in vibrational alignment with their desire is because they're focused on something other than their desire. Now, think about it. Law of Attraction says, that which is like unto itself is drawn. So, if you want something and you're focused on that something that you want, then you are offering a vibration about that something that you want and you are fulfilling all three steps: You're fulfilling the two that are your responsibility - and Source is fulfilling the other. So, then you say, "Well, there must be something I'm missing, because I believe that there are things that I desire that have not come to me... I've got stuff in my life I don't want and there's stuff missing that I do want. And I'm pretty sure that I'm thinking about what I want." And we say: not possible. If you were thinking about what you want, in time you would develop such a vibrational habit around that, that it would
have to be yours. In fact, you can be sure that whatever you are getting is what you've been thinking about. But then you say, "Can't
be true. I have a disease I never thought about. Never even heard about it 'til they assigned it to me. How could I have been thinking about this thing if I didn't even know it exists?" You develop patterns of thought which cause you to offer patterns of vibration, which equal what you are living. What manifests is always an accurate reflection of the thoughts that you've been thinking.
And so, it is helpful if you think in terms of the vibrational essence of the thought that you are thinking. You might not have assigned it a name, but if you are focused upon the absence of Well-Being in some area of your life and you have held your attention upon that, enough that you've, sort of, beat the drum of it, meaning, you develop a vibrational cadence; it's where your thoughts easily go; it's where your conversations easily turn; it's just the way you feel about this or about this or about this...those practiced, conscious or unconscious, vibrations, then become your point of attraction. And what you're getting matches that perfectly, every single time. So, it's really a wonderful thing when you realize that, because then you can start watching for evidence of your vibration.
Now, there are two ways to watch for that evidence. You can wait 'til something manifests and then say, "Oh yeah, I recognize that." Or, you can pay attention to the way you feel and say, "Oh yes, I can feel what's coming."
Your emotions are these fabulous indicators that let you know what your vibrational content is. And your emotions feel the way they do because of two important vibrational factors: The factor of desire, which is the summoning power. And the factor of allowing - which is the letting or the not letting what you've summoned flow. If you really, really want something, you're summoning Energy in a stronger way. If you've wanted it for quite awhile, you're summoning it even more. If you think about it often, you're summoning it specifically.
So, just like you can take a spectrum of light and focus it into a very powerful laser beam, you have desires that you have focused into very powerful beams. So, the more focused thoughts, are the thoughts where the Energy moves faster. And in that faster Energy, any contradiction shows up more. Just like if you're driving your car 100 mph and you hit a tree, the tree is a bigger factor than if you were going 5 mph.
So, the two factors that your emotions are always letting you know are: how focused the Energy is by virtue of your desire and how your normal thoughts around the subject resonate or don't resonate with that desire. Easier way to say it is, "what's my attitude or what's my mood about such-and-such? "When I think about my body, do I love it? Am I grateful? Does it annoy me? Does it embarrass me? Do I praise it? Do I condemn it? Do I adore it? Do I compliment it? Do I criticize it?" In other words, what kinds of things do you say about your body? When you think about dollars, do you feel joyful? Does the subject of dollars make you feel free? Do you feel eager and enthusiastic about dollars? Do you feel afraid when you think about dollars? Are you angry about dollars? Are you embarrassed about dollars? Are you fitful about them; worried about them; eager about them, happy about them? When you think about the greater economy, are you grateful for economy? Do you love it when someone thrives? Are you jealous when someone thrives? Do you feel happy for a friend succeeding? Do you feel unhappy about your not-so-much success when you see friends succeeding? Do you blame the government? Do you blame your employer for not paying you more? How do you feel? It turns up in all of these different ways.
