The Key to Your Life is Understanding Your Thought Process….

The Key to Your Life If you aren’t sure about LOA – – you can read parts 1 & 2 here – Part 1 | Part 2

The Key to Your Life is Understanding Your Thought Process….

OK – – so now we have an understanding of the Law of Attraction. We know:

  • “Like attracts Like”
  • And – if I have more negative than positive thoughts around a subject – then the outcome is more likely to be negative….
  • And visa versa – if our thoughts are more positive than negative – the outcome will be positive!

But – – do you know what the majority of your thoughts are? Are they negative or positive?

Hint: Look at your life – are you getting more of what you want – or more of what you don’t want? There-in lies the answer…

Usually we have differing thoughts on different topics – and also differing results on those topics.

How do you feel about the relationships in your life? Look around at those relationships – are they for the most part happy or do you feel they are lacking?

How about your work / career / job? Is this area of your life fulfilling and happy – – or do you feel unfulfilled and restless?

Money / Prosperity / Abundance – This is usually a hot topic for lots of people. When you think of money – how do you feel? Do you feel basically OK – feel like you have enough to do all the things you want? Or do you feel a bit antsy about money? Do you feel like there is just about enough to go around from paycheck to paycheck?

Let’s take the subject of money – if you are thinking – – money is tight – I certainly could use more money to do the things I want to do – – but it always seems that I just have enough to get by and pay my bills.

So if I asked you if you wanted more money – obviously your answer would be Yes! And…. If you have done some reading on LOA or if you have watched the Secret…. You might be thinking – well I want more money – I have stated to the Universe I want more money – – so how come I don’t have anymore money?!

And if Like attracts Like – Then my wanting more money should bring it – Yes?

NO! Here’s why……

Let’s go back and look at the thought process – If you are thinking that money is tight and there isn’t enough to go around. If when the topic of money comes up – you feel a bit antsy. Then your dominant thoughts are about Lack of Money – Remember our job example in Part 2

So you want more money – but you have dominant thoughts of lack of money. Remember the dominant thoughts are the ones that get the results!
Yeah – but I think all day long “I want more money” – So that is my dominant thought – Isn’t it?

Yes & No – – Stay with me here…..

How do you FEEL when you think “I want more money” – This is the key to your thought process! This is what The Secret kept a Secret!

If you Feel Happy, Light, Joyous, Fulfilled – when you think the thought – I want more money – then I promise you – it is on its way to you!

BUT – – if you feel frustrated or annoyed or confused or antsy or angry or depressed – when you think that thought – then I promise you money is not on its way.

Well how can I FEEL happy – when the money isn’t here and my life is difficult without it?! I will Feel happy – – when the money gets here!

How you feel when you think that thought – is telling you, in essence, your underlying thoughts. Every feeling is in response to a thought / belief. You can not have a feeling without a thought / belief. Remember we think 50,000 – 70,000 thoughts everyday – most of our thoughts we are not even aware of!

If you are not feeling good around a thought – you are being informed of your dominant thoughts! Your feelings – your emotions – are your inner guidance system.

Confusing? Well I know for me it was – that is because I was taught to overlook my feelings – to get over them. Now – I’m being told to acknowledge my feelings because they hold the key to my life!

So now what? What do I do about these feelings/thoughts? How I can I change them?

Let’s go right back to the money scenario….

Here is what is going on…

  • I want more money
  • When I think of money – I feel antsy (or whatever feeling you have)
  • So – apparently I have thoughts of lack of money – or money is hard to come by – or I’ll never be rich — etc… etc…
  • I want to change my dominant thoughts from lack of money to abundance of money.

Now don’t worry I am not going to tell you to run around or look into a mirror and say affirmations. Affirmations don’t work! Well – let me restate that – affirmations only work – if you can feel good when you say them!

I’ve read the books that told me to say the affirmations – I would be in the mirror saying “I am Rich – I am a Millionaire” – and all the while I felt like a fool! I felt like this is a bunch of BS!

So – needless to say, that did not work for me!

The way to change your thought process is by soothing yourself – – soothing your feelings.

So…. I think – I want more money – and then I am aware I have some feelings of frustrations here – which makes me aware I have a thought that is contrary to wanting more money – I have feelings around money that is actually keeping the money away from me – I might know the exact negative thought that is active for me – but if I don’t know it that is OK – I just need to soothe my feelings….

I’m going to soothe my feelings by deliberately changing my thoughts – I don’t need to get my thoughts to — I am going to be a millionaire – that is too big of a jump. I just need to alter the feeling that is going on now….. Just a little bit better.

So here is a dialogue –

“OK – so money has been tight lately but I have been able to make ends meet – so that is good – I certainly have set my intentions onto more money — so I don’t need to figure this all out right now – I just need to have some faith that this is going to work out for me. I know other people who have been broke and have had things happen for them that turned their money situation around. I’m not going to let this be a big deal – I have sent my message to the universe – I know I deserve more money and I know it will come to me.”

OK – there is some relief in that dialogue – Do I feel like a millionaire yet? No – but I feel better and I have started to diffuse the negative stuff that I had attached to this topic money. I know I have diffused it – I know I have come up the emotional scale – – if I feel a little bit better.

If you can go even further in your dialogue and still feel better – then go for it! But if you go too far and start to feel antsy again – – get back to that little bit of relief.

Let’s recap:

  • It’s my dominant thoughts that are attracting things to me….
  • I can tell if my dominant thoughts are positive or negative by how I Feel.
  • I need to soothe my feelings by changing my thoughts gradually.
  • You can take an inventory of your life by looking at the different topics and seeing how you feel about them. ie: money / health / your body / relationships / career / whatever topic that is important to you. See what your dominant feeling is about each – which will tell you the direction of your dominant thoughts – For the ones that aren’t happy – start to soothe yourself on these….

Is there more to this? Well actually if all you did was find a way to feel good about every situation in your life – your life would be a spectacular masterpiece!

You are a Blessed, Magnificent Being! You deserve absolute wonder and happiness in your life! 🙂

We will continue on this journey as we look at and fine tune our vibrations. That’s coming next!

Would you kindly tell me more about how our emotions relate to the vibrations in our mind/body and possibly to health issues.

Thank you very much.

Hi Marian…

Glad to see you hear!

This is a great question!
Our emotions are an indicator of what we vibrating back to the Universe. So — if we are feeling Anger – we are sending out that signal to the Universe….
