Be the vibration you seek
The great mystics seem to agree on one thing: There is only one. One power. One life. One source of all.
“The One” is understood as a nondualistic source of all there is, both in the physical and nonphysical. This is easy to grasp intellectually but challenging for some to accept in reality. If source is all there is, then all must be made of, and from, the source. And it follows that all that is must have, as its very nature, the same attributes as the source. i.e. love, joy, prosperity, wholeness, peace, etc.
Since all is source, then only the likeness of source can be drawn unto itself. This includes thoughts, feelings and things. Example: thoughts of joy, prosperity and love attract more thoughts and feelings of joy, prosperity and love and, eventually, their manifestation in our human experience. This occurs because of the law of attraction.
If the law of attraction can only attract that which is like source, and I am made of source, then why do I experience ”bad” things in my life? It’s not that you have bad things in your life, it’s that you are experiencing the lack of source-like things. Source always attracts like unto itself.
An example of how this works can be seen in the way we breathe. Air (or source) surrounds us and is always there for us in unlimited supply. We breathe without thinking. But we have the power to cut off our own supply of oxygen from the source: we can pinch our nose and close our mouth, and then we will experience something that we don’t want suffocation. All we have to do to remedy this is to open our nose and mouth and let the air in again.
Here’s another example: If you are feeling lonely, you are not attracting loneliness into your life but rather experiencing a lack of love/source. The fact is, you want to experience more love, and when you ask for love, source gives it to you but you have to be able to let it in. Letting it in requires you to be the mental and emotional equivalent of love to experience it, and this cannot occur if your focus is on the feelings of loneliness. You must focus on being love or giving the love that you seek.
It is the very nature of source to “give” — all that it is all the time. Source does not decide who deserves what or how much. Source is inclusive rather than exclusive — it gives to everyone alike. Judgment regarding “deservingness” is a human quality, not a god-like quality. Many believe, however, that we attract lack, poverty, despair and suffering. But remember that we cannot attract anything that is unlike source; we can only experience a lack of source. We are conscious beings and, with that consciousness, have the ability to choose what we focus our attention on and experience. We can consciously choose to attract and experience that which is like source or unconsciously “choose” the qualities and experiences which demonstrate the lack of source. We cannot attract poverty, despair and suffering, we can only experience the lack of abundance, fulfillment and well-being by blocking the source with our unconscious thoughts and actions and our focus on limiting beliefs and ideas.
So, if you want to demonstrate more money, know that source does not send you less money. In fact, source provides infinite prosperity, but you experience only the amount that you let in.
If you talk to a quantum physicist, she will tell you that everything is vibrating. We live in a vibrational universe. Everything has a different vibratory frequency. This is true in the physical and also in the nonphysical. So, when we say that you have to be the equivalent of love in order to experience love, this means that your being, your consciousness, must be the same vibration as love in order to let it in. If you are feeling hatred, and talking hatred, that is a much different vibration from love. Similarly, poverty and lack are a very different vibration/consciousness from prosperity.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration,” said Nikola Tesla.
Once you desire something, source within you immediately creates it vibrationally in the nonphysical realm. It will continually be ready to manifest until you are the vibrational equivalent of your desire, or else you replace your desire with something just like it or something even better. You do not have to control how or when your desire manifests, as source is infinitely intelligent. We do not need to tell source how to bring our desires forth. What we need to do is to maintain a consciousness of joyous expectancy and gratefulness. Being grateful for all the wonderful things, people and situations we already have in our lives is one of the best ways to allow the manifestation to come forth.
“If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” — Meister Eckhart.
The world is not broken, be in peace.
