Attracting a New Life

Abraham-Hicks offers an important affirmation today:

The one who fears something the most is the one who has it most activated in their vibration. And so, it is logical that they would experience it.

 —Abraham

 Excerpted from the workshop in Tarrytown, NY on May 10, 2003

First, let’s look at the word most.  In this instance, Abraham is not comparing one person’s fear with another’s, as any user of standard English might imply  Abraham is asking his readers to look within themselves for this comparison; is fear the strongest emotion in my being?  I remember all too clearly what it feels like to be full of fear, so that no other feeling can overcome it.

The fear overshadowed everything in my life.  My choices were colored by sadness that arose out of fear — fear of not measuring up, fear of showing how worthless I felt I was; no matter how much I wanted to, I couldn’t push my worry far enough away to let any other feeling influence me.  Even when I felt okay; even when I felt happy, I could sense myself waiting for that other shoe to hit the floor.  As a result of that fear, I was unable to avoid not measuring up, unable to avoid feeling worthless.  I never believed that could change.

Until the day it did.

One day, I decided that I was going to be happy.  Not that I wouldn’t feel fear, but that my joy would be the emotion I knew best.  I made a conscious decision, just as though I were choosing a dinner to cook or a movie to watch — I did not need to be fearful all the time, and my fear was mostly my mind’s creation, anyway.  As difficult as fright made my life for all those years, now contentedness would make it easier.  Not easy, but easier.  Life began to be full of light and forgiveness and self-appreciation, and those emotions lead me to experience more light, more forgiveness and understanding of myself.

Fear always built more fear in my life.  Now I understand that every emotion can work that same way,  and that the feelings I choose to build in my life are the ones of which I will always, always receive more.  Suddenly, fear was not so — fearful.  And this method, this choice will benefit anyone the same way.  We decide the way we want to feel, and the Law of Attraction brings more of the emotions we choose to us, no matter if they are joy, boredom, terror, pain, happiness, a deep connection to the world around us.  Any of these will be ours, if we but concentrate on the one we want operating in our lives.

Maybe the time has come to change your focus.  What do you think?

  1. My fear button was so accustomed to being triggered I had to keep it polished. What a waste of energy that was.

    The fear of being seen as anything less what we have created in our self image is defying who we are. We struggle to not let the ego be seen in all its bare form,
    Frightening sometimes just to be me.

    I love ya Jude. The way you mirror my feelings and thoughts is a precious gift.~

      • I love discussing with you complex topics to the everyday topic of what peanut butter each uses ( I know silly example.. I am in a mood tonight that embraces silliness)
        I just passed the 2 year anniversary of BB and I am reflecting back on the beginning.When I do I see you. I do believe you were one of the first of 3 ladies who followed me right away.
        You are as always have been my most devoted blibling. My Bliss.
        I am even more grateful Jude because even when I was not the best Bliss in return you never abandoned my ship. you stuck with me through my life changes this last year.
        I just need you to know I recognize all of this.
        You are an angel disguised as my blogging sister Jude. ~

      • BB, my dear, you would and have done exactly the same for me. I won’t reach two years until October, but the blog seems a part of my life for much longer, and you were there almost from my first post. I have had a couple of periods of hardly writing at all, but when I came back, you’ve been right here. I never had real long-term friends before, and I realize now that friendship is exactly this — being there for each other, and accepting the other just the way she is. I am proud and happy that you are my friend, and you can count on me to be here, always. I love you, Bliss. And I really like you too, which is icing on the cake!

I love to read your thoughts...
