Aiming Our Feelings At Our Desires

Abraham-Hicks offers us an Affirmation of Inspiration today:

Get so fixated on what you want, that you drown out any vibration or reverberation that has anything to do with what you do not want.

 —Abraham

 Excerpted from the workshop in Boston, MA on October 2, 2004

Here, Abraham reminds us of the way to work The Law of Attraction; concentrate on that which you want more of, and don’t concentrate on things you want less of.  This is a reminder.  If we are obsessed with things that make us unhappy, or things to dilute the happiness we have, we are  robbing ourselves of full development into the joyous, jolly people we can be.  

Abraham speaks of fixation — a state we all find ourselves in at one time or another.  Or at least, this emotional condition will feel very familiar to us when we encounter it in our lives.  Our complete preoccupation leaves very little room for any other feelings, and certainly, the Law of Attraction can be put to good use in the event we find ourselves in this state.

I remember a time, not too long ago, when I was obsessed with a desire to be noticed by a certain group of people.  I concentrated so hard, and for so long, all the while thinking that obtaining what I desired was going to take a lot of work, and how I’d feel if I didn’t get what I wanted.  In otherwise, I was calling to myself, strengthening within myself the requirements of strain and anguish which I identified as accompanying the fulfillment of my wish.  I had no room for any positive thoughts, except that I was positively sure this would be tough.

Not until I learned about the Law of Attraction did I realize what I was doing.  All of my worry and fretting over this situation did me no good at all — rather, I was crowding out the thoughts and feelings that would have helped me.  As soon as I shifted my attention to the idea that I should find easy the task of getting someone else’s attention, a change in my emotion and my desire took equal space in my mind.  Why was I worried, and why did I want attention so much that I was willing to ignore any other feelings?

Then, as I have before, I chose to forget about why altogether.   Instead, I concentrated on  how to move my thoughts into different patterns — different mind-tracks.  Why worry about why ?  Nothing I could do would change the reason I acted the way I did.  Rather, I turned to a healthy fixation on the positives, and everything turned out fine, as it so often can..
