I get what I want because I want what I get

From October 12, 2012 Daily Affirmations:

Say yes to whatever it is. Because if you say yes to it and then you get in the middle of it, and you say, “Uh oh, this isn’t really turning out the way I wanted it to,” then out of that is born another desire. And as you say yes to that, then it turns out. And you say, “Well, it’s still not quite right.” So you have another desire… Until eventually you get it exactly right. You cannot get it wrong. No creation is ever complete. Just do it.


Excerpted from the workshop in Tucson, AZ on Tuesday, February 15th, 2000 # 591

This affirmation is a long and roundabout way of saying that I get what I wish for.  Or maybe not, but I am always in the process of crafting what I want my life to be.

Abraham simply says that, if it isn’t right the first time, wish for the change and draw it to me.  And then, when the end result of that isn’t perfect, start the process again — concentrate on the change I want, devote all my available psychic energy toward that end and, according to the law of attraction, I draw whatever holds my concentration — my Vibration, to use Abraham’s term –to me.

When first I read this particular paragraph, I was somewhat taken aback by the idea of concentrating all my energy on one thing that I want.  Surely Abraham is not say to ignore the rest of my spiritual soul and reach only for some thing that I want.  But I came to see that this lesson is actually quite simple:  it requests of me my focus, my vibration, and tells me to aim it at the next goal, and the next…

Conversely, this method can work against me just as simply and easily as for me.  If I bend my vibrations to a negative thought or subject, they call all that negativity toward me.  And if that happens, I feel even worse, I have worse thoughts and feelings, and I reel those in too.  I believe this is what I did for so many years after my heart surgery — all I could think of was how miserable I was, and how I was never going to be able to do anything ever again.

I damn near made it happen, too.  I will likely be a long time weeding out all of those bad feelings.  But I feel okay with that — life is a process, a journey, a long, strange trip.  No one knows where that life will take that person — recognize, encourage, and give thanks for every good feeling I have had and will have; those feelings are my tools toward achieving my more positive life.

  1. When we think o f life as a journey – what is the destination. It is different for everyone. So the saying of enjoy the journey as much as the destination rings true here. Regardless of where we think we’re going to finish. Wish for the things you want along the way. Enjoy the journey, have a ball, and take the good with the bad, as even the bad can teach us a lesson or two. Maybe not straight away, but it will come to us. 🙂

I love to read your thoughts...
