Nature & Energy Insights
What you think is what you become
Choose your thoughts wisely
“Everything is energy. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” Albert Einstein
"If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never ever have enough." – Oprah Winfrey
Have you ever wanted something so badly, and felt so determined to bring it to fruition in your life, that you could actually see yourself doing it, or having the subject of your intentions? That is precisely what I’m calling your vibrational reality. Some might say you “willed it into being”. You simply didn’t see it any other way. You didn’t allow your doubts to creep in – or if you did, you didn’t allow those doubts to linger. You spent *more* time seeing what you wanted. Jim Carrey has spoken numerous times about manifesting his success by writing himself a check for $10 million for a date ten years in the future. This is how he brought his vibrational reality into being.
I created my move back to California when I was living on the East Coast, several jobs that I’ve had, and, with my partner and a vision board, created our new home. That one was particularly funny because after we bought the property, we happened upon the vision board again and were actually pleasantly surprised that every single thing on the vision board was represented in this newly created opportunity. I have a dear friend who was determined to have a home, at a certain price, in a certain neighborhood. Everyone that she knew – including her realtor – explained to her that it was not possible. My friend, being a determined woman anyway, simply didn’t live in their reality – she lived in hers, the one where things you can imagine ARE possible. And guess what? She and her children have been happily enjoying that home – for which she paid the price she envisioned – for many years now. And she set an important example for her children of what is possible when you dream it. I smile every time I walk into her home and think about this vibrational reality becoming a physical one.
So let’s use some exercises to help illustrate the point:
1. Global warming: No, we’re not saying that scientists are wrong, that we shouldn’t be educated about what science is telling us, or otherwise shouldn’t talk about it. This is our PHYSICAL reality. But what we ARE saying is that the more time you spend in the dire PHYSICAL reality of what’s happening, rather than envisioning what you WANT to be in your world, we – and our world – have a tougher time bringing in a better reality in our future.
"Pretending is the fastest way to believing, and believing is the fastest way to receiving." - Mike Dooley
2. Past transgressions and traumas: While sadly we do indeed experience life with pain, trauma, and other emotional and physical injuries, this is our PHYSICAL reality. If we spend time reiterating all of the bad that has happened to us, or spend time thinking about how wronged we are in life, or continue to tell our story of these past injuries to whomever will listen, we are unfortunately unwittingly creating a circle of energy that cycles this anger, sadness, depression, and other issues back to us. I speak from my own experiences so I know all too well how to dwell in my own “history”. Luckily, I had some very wise life “teachers” who helped me to begin using visualizations and other tools to set me down a positive path of a different VIBRATIONAL reality that led me to where I am now. So let’s walk through another example:
"...When you begin to realize that when you change how you think and feel, you change your state of being, when you change your energy, you'll see a change in your life." – Dr. Joe Dispenza
And so it is in this context that I’m inviting others to join me for #WetWednesdays in which we spend a mere minute envisioning rain in California, Oregon, Australia and wherever else a region can benefit from it. I hope that you’ll join me!
Let’s SEE ourselves in a positive way of living. Let’s FEEL what it feels like to be in a different place in our lives. The more of our senses we can put into this, the more aligned we are to a new VIBRATIONAL reality. Give it a try for something you want to change in your life. What do you have to lose, while having so much to gain.
Why is this important? Because whatever we spend time in – using our thoughts, our communications with others, our inner self-talk - we’ll attract more of it. So if we sit ruminating on a past wrong or situation, we’re going to attract more of that low vibration feeling. We might pay lip service to “leaving the past behind” but then still sit and obsess or ruminate about it. Those negative ruminations are hurting us ….
"Where Attention goes, energy flows..." - James Redfield
Staying stuck in the “mud” of lower vibration
Here are a few examples:
1. You don’t like the situation at work. Interactions with colleagues, the work itself, your boss, whatever it is. You know you want to change jobs. Because it bothers you so much, you talk with your spouse or significant other, closest friends, family about it. Sometimes every day, or several times a week or month.
2. Someone in your life may have hurt you, “wronged” you in some way. Perhaps it was an argument. Perhaps you just disagree on the approach to something in your lives – co-parenting, how to take care of aging parents, etc. Because it bothers you so much, you talk about it to your closest friends or others. Sometimes every day, or several times a week or month.
3. You’ve been given a medical diagnosis and then a negative prognosis by your doctor. You naturally start having feelings of SADNESS, FEAR, FRUSTRATION, DISAPPOINTMENT. Because it naturally(!) bothers you so much, you talk about it with your spouse or significant other, medical staff, others who are experiencing the same, your closest family and friends. Sometimes every day, or several times a week or month. Note: If you’re handling some very BIG, life-changing news, you may very well need time in this stage for a longer period. You need time to assimilate the news, understand it, and even potentially go through the stages of grief about it. This is not an exercise of forcing you NOT to feel these feelings. You absolutely need to feel them and go through the stages that you must in order to assimilate the new information. Be kind and non-judgmental to yourself during this time.
In these examples, you re-tell the story, staying in the dirty ‘mud’ of those feelings and recounting them to yourself and others many times over. That mud, that crud, is continuing to encircle you and it’s now getting those you love “dirty” with that energy along with you. They may, in fact, subconsciously realize before you do that being with you in these conversations doesn’t feel good to them. As a result, they could choose to distance themselves for a time. Again, this could all be happening subconsciously – their intuition may just tell them that it doesn’t feel good. (Again, noting in the context of big life-changing news, your loved ones will naturally be there for you - this is not that.)
“Whatever you’re thinking about is literally like planning a future event...." - Abraham-Hicks
Ramifications of “mud wrestling”
There are several ramifications to this, beyond losing the time with your loved ones. Now that you’re sitting in that vibration:
-You’re attracting more of it to you. This is why some days it just seems things don’t go right, or everyone is out to frustrate you or anger you in some way, or you just feel that the day’s “yuckiness” is too much for you to handle.
-This “mud” doesn’t allow in the fresh, shiny, clean new desired state. The joy that you would otherwise get from thinking about a positive new change can put you into a higher vibration. But you’re depriving yourself of that higher vibration – and attracting more of that to you – because, well, you’re stuck in the mud. (See Note above if you’re experiencing a major change.)
Take a bath! …. In positive vibration, that is!
So now let’s use the examples above to put you on the right trajectory, using what I call the “Vibrational shift line”.
1.“Vibrational shift line”
2. Morning Visualization: To the right of this line, this is where you want to put your attention – every day until “it is so”. Start out each morning holding this vision in your mind’s eye.
3. "Quick 3": Add to this visualization every morning, a list of at least 3 things for which you’re grateful. It could literally be ANYthing – the beautiful blue sky, your good health, the song of birds in your yard or local park, the smile on a child’s face, the greeting your pet gives you…. When you start the daily momentum of putting energy to finding what you have to be grateful for, the list can actually become infinite. (Note: If you're interested in the quantum physics behind "why" this works, you can tune into Re-Wired on Gaia TV.)
If you’re struggling with potentially life-changing news, see my NOTE above. I would also encourage you to:
Going forward, think of this “Vibrational shift line” when you are ready to call change into your life. Whether you use the words MANIFEST, CHANGE, VIBRATIONALLY SHIFT, CORRECT or other word – be sure to spend your time thinking about a time AFTER today’s intersection point. Stay in the “feeling good” space – looking forward, raising your vibration, and thinking about all that is GOOD with life, and how good it’s going to be in the future!
For more daily practices that you can incorporate into your life to feel a higher vibrational shift, please visit my page of free Self-empowered Healing tools. If you feel that you would prefer or like the help of a practitioner or coach, still have blocks to your abundance, in your career, or in other areas of our life, you have options. Sometimes we come here with inherited (or even those from past lives) trapped emotions or other energy imbalances - not really understanding why we're generally negative, or find it impossible to be optimistic. If this sounds like your situation, I would be honored to help you in my practice. I wish you a life filled with vibrational shifts from anything you choose to change - to live your life to your highest potential! Until then, blessings to all of you -
