Hello Law of Attractors,
I have been asked to host a seminar series on Esther and Jerry Hick's book, "Ask and it is Given - Learning to Manifest your Desires". We will discuss the philosophy of the Law of Attraction, conduct written exercises and have enlightening conversation. All seminars will be held at my counseling office in Verona. (You don't need to have read the book)
A brief synopsis of the first gathering:
the law of attraction (a universal law that is never contradicted) is that whatever you put your attention on through thought or desire becomes reality. Whenever you are focused on what you don’t have, that situation of not-having will also be your reality. You attract to yourself things or people that are the equivalent of your current state of being, or ‘vibration’.
In the first chapter on ‘The power of feeling good now’, Abraham notes that deciding to elevate your mood or feeling in each moment is vital for increasing your vibration, which in turn attracts things, people and feelings of a like vibration. He says: “It is our powerful desire that you be pleased with where you are right now, in this moment – no matter where you are. We understand how strange these words must sound to you if you are standing in a place that seems far from where you want to be. But it is our absolute promise to you that when you understand the power of feeling good now, no matter what, you will hold the key to the achievement of any state of being, any state of health, any state of wealth, or any state of anything that you desire.”
Trying to pretend you are feeling wonderful when you are not will not work. It will not change your vibration. The idea is to choose an emotion that is slightly higher than the one you are experiencing now. The more positive you think and feel in each moment, the more open is your connection to the Source, or provider of all things and all love. The worse you feel, the more closed this connection will be.
Trusting your emotions
If you are feeling depressed, having a thought of anger about someone or something is actually a ‘higher’ feeling, since it will take you out of your depressed state. It is a relief. Once you have chosen anger as a relief from depression, you are then empowered to choose another thought or emotion higher up the scale. If you deliberately choose to be disappointed rather than feeling despair, again you have raised your vibrations through choice. Once you know how to deliberately raise your emotional state, even in a small way, you are no longer powerless before your emotions.
Because your emotions indicate your vibrational frequency, they are an infallible indicator as to whether you are aligned with the Source. If you are aligned with your Source, you are on track to receive whatever you want. Your emotions are the perfect guidance system, telling you exactly how the Law of Attraction is working in your life.
