“The reason that the pursuit of joy, or as some have said in such perfect words, following your bliss, is so valuable, is that when you are looking for the thought, word or action that feels joyful–what you are actually doing is holding yourself in vibrational harmony with Source Energy.
Holding yourself in a place where you’re letting it in.
Letting what in?
Things that are a vibrational match to joy: Clarity, wellness, abundance, all things that you consider to be good.
“And so, today, no matter where I’m going, no matter what I’m doing, and no matter who I’m doing it with–it is my dominant intent to look for those things that feel good.”
This process of allowing the Well-being to flow to you is not difficult.
It is as simple as wanting enough to feel good, that I’m looking for something that makes me feel good.
I might have to be tenacious in that idea for a little while. I might look at that and it might not make me feel good because it reminds me of something that didn’t make me feel good before, or because it might remind me of something that I’ve wanted and I don’t have.
And I might look outside, and it might not make me feel good because it might remind me that the winters are getting closer, and that the days are getting shorter.
It might take some diligence at first.
I might say, “That doesn’t make me feel good, and that doesn’t make me feel good,” but if I want to feel good, then I will stay on my search.
And if I keep saying to the Manager, or to the Universe, “I want to find something that makes me feel good, I want to find something that makes me feel good.” If I’m holding that intent, and I really, really mean it, the Universe will yield to me, sooner than later, something that makes me feel good–and I will feel the relief and the release of feeling better.
And then I will say, “Ah, that makes me feel good.” And as I focus upon that for as little as 17 seconds, now I’m off and running.
Suddenly, the things that were in my vicinity that were not making me feel good, I do not have vibrational access to any more.
Now, I’m on a rampage of things feeling good.
There is nothing more productive for any of you, than to get on a rampage of appreciation relative to any subject of your desire.
Because you cannot be in the state of appreciation and at the same time hold yourself vibrationally apart from something you desire. They are two opposite vibrations.
You cannot appreciate the idea of a relationship and hold yourself apart from one at the same time.
You can’t appreciate the idea of a healthy body, whether it is yours or someone else’s, and hold yourself apart from it at the same time.
When you are in the vibration of appreciation, you are in the vibration of allowing. Whatever it is you are appreciating, you are allowing, with that much more emphasis, in the now. In other words, it speeds the process.
If we were wanting to reach for joyful experience, or the experience of connection, we would superimpose the word “appreciation”, because it is a purer vibration for most.
When you say, “I want that, or I have to have that,” sometimes it can get messy. But when you say, “I surely do appreciate that,” there is very little contradictory vibration within you. And you are much more likely to then use that as your excuse to allow what you’ve been telling the Universe, all along, with your yippees and yahoos, that you are wanting.
The art of letting it in says, “Well-being abounds, and I’m a worthy receiver of it.”
And when I think that thought, I don’t let it in. When I think that thought, I let it in a little more. And when I think that thought, I really let it in. I choose that thought.” Do I choose that thought because it is reality? Do I choose that thought because my parents agree with it?
No, but I choose that thought because it lets it in.
Do I choose that thought because statistics say it’s the truth? Do I choose that thought because a lot of wise people choose that thought and therefore it must be a good thought?
No, I choose that thought for only one reason: in choosing that thought, I feel better. This thought feels better than that thought. This thought feels better than that thought.” – Abraham Hicks
