“She would think things so hard that they showed on her face.” –Amanda Palmer
I got an email the other day from a reader of one of my books. “Help,” she said, “I just can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I meditate every day. I’ve made at least three vision boards. Every morning, I make lists of positive aspects. I’ve got a focus wheel (These last two are practices recommended by Abraham-Hicks). And nothing is happening.”
I was exhausted just reading her email. And here’s what I told her after I took a few deep breaths: All of those practices are fabulous. I’m an avid fan of Abraham-Hicks myself.
And I also know how tempting it is to work hard, to try, try, try.
But when we “try so hard,” we negate Truth. We put up roadblocks to all the good that wants to manifest before our eyes. It’s as if we go brain dead and forget that all this “stuff” we’re trying to manifest is already ours. This is important to say again. Everything you’re trying to manifest is already yours. It’s sitting right there in your field of potentiality, twiddling its thumbs.
But because you’re on a different wave length (the wave length of I don’t have it, the frequency of I’d better get on my running shoes and move faster, try harder), it’s invisible to your eyeballs.
All of us are already living the life most extraordinary (on one of the FP’s channels), but because we’re focused on all we don’t have or on what we’re trying to get, it’s fuzzy and not something we can put our hands on. It’s surrounded by static.
Just like a filmmaker decides which of many objects his lens focuses upon, we get to decide if we want to zero in on the stuff in the foreground (what we have now) or if we’re prefer to shine our lens on something else. We’re the cameramen.
It’s important to remember that reality is never static or complete. It’s an unending process of movement and unfoldment. We choose what to unfold, what to put in our lens, where to point our viewfinder.
