“Desire is a fresh, free feeling of anticipating wonderful expansion. The feeling of desire is truly the feeling of life flowing through you. But many people… while they are using words of desire, they are offering a vibration of lack. They come to think that the feeling of desire is like wanting something that they do not have. But there is no feeling of lack in pure desire.”
–by Esther and Jerry Hicks
From the book Ask and it is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires
Every time I feel the struggling in creating my reality, I pick up this book, which is the best tool I’ve grown to love.
You may have heard the Law of Attraction (LOA). This creating your reality is a concept that you can draw anything into your life that you want, and this book suggests a way to do that is by putting this emotion of “desire” out into the universe, and thinking about it, meditating up on it, but in a positive way.
I usually see what I’m doing wrong once a I read just one paragraph in my continuing read of this book. I’m like halfway through the book, but I just pick it up, continue where I left off, get an ah-ha moment, and underline it (or highlight it).
My ah-ha moment was the bottom line: “But there is no feeling of lack in pure desire.” To create something in your life, you need to put this energy of joyful desire into it. So, if I want money, I have to produce the FEELING of how excited I be once this raise/promotion/more money comes into my life. I can’t send out the negative feeling of worry because I don’t have money now – that’s the “vibration of lack.”
This is a struggle, but when I pull it off, it’s always worth it.
I’ve been working hard at creating my reality for years. My first time I impressed myself was getting my first car. I was out of college, and it was clear my parents weren’t getting me a car, no one was. I just had savings, and that’s it. No real job to give me real money. But I craved independence and was tired of my father carting around my brothers and me all the time. I wanted a car! So I projected into the universe, envisioning the perfect, reliable car for me, getting the car for a reasonable price from my savings.
I looked at craigslist and studied sellers. But I just didn’t find a GOOD, running, safe, reliable car for my really, really low price I was asking for.
Then my friend said there was a Salvation Army Car auction. I enlisted a few of my guy friends to come inspect out the cars, see which one was the best, and bid on it. (I had great friends. 🙂 ) Which happened, and I got the perfect car for MORE than the perfect price!!
God,was I excited. I pulled it off. I got a car in my reality, and one more step towards being independent.
Flashback to when I got my first car – so excited. I created my reality!
That’s just the first time I’ve created my reality. I’ve done it with jobs, boyfriends, current husband, promotions, etc. I’ve got a lot to work on still.
I’m not saying that it’s an automatic thing. It takes positive thought, details, concentration, and not giving up! And it also may not occur if it’s not MEANT to be by the Spirit. Like, I didn’t get certain jobs because I was MEANT to have the ones I have now, or whatever. That’s the way I view that. But to a big extent, this Law of Attraction has worked for me.
This topic is so expansive, I won’t share all in one blog. But feel free to ask me any questions or tell me your personal experiences with the LOA and creating your reality, because I’m interested in knowing others’ thoughts & stories!
Namaste with Love,
