I’m not sure who first coined this saying….But I think it was well said by the psychic mother of the Na’vi people in the movie Avatar!!!
Most people understand what this common saying is getting at, and of course there is a great truth within these words.
It’s especially relevant to those that have been on this planet for some time that are becoming aware they’re holding strong beliefs that may no longer be serving them or what they’re wanting to experience in their lives.
The experiences we’ve had, especially in our earlier years start to shape our beliefs about life and how life works. Once our beliefs are in place, we receive much evidence of those beliefs and the beliefs of the larger culture we’ve been brought up in as the Law of Attraction responds to the vibrations we emit with matching manifestations strengthening our initial beliefs. This is the circle or cycle of creation so to speak.
We experience something, we believe what we see and we receive more evidence of the beliefs we hold….
Belief-Experience-Evidence-Belief….And so it continues….
Once we have strong beliefs in place, most would agree, it’s not an easy thing to automatically change those beliefs as there’s much power and momentum behind them. All our beliefs have come about over time with focused attention, so in order to change beliefs we feel are no longer helping us to achieve what we’re wanting in our lives, it makes sense that it will require some time and focus to move the thoughts that are at the basis of our beliefs,into a better feeling vibrational place.
Rather than changing negative beliefs we have, most will defend their beliefs by stating “It’s true, look at all the evidence of my belief!!”
And I say yes,….Whatever we focus on over time with emotional intensity will eventually draw evidence of our focus, Universal Law says it must.
The question isn’t so much is what we’re experiencing or observing true or not, the question is…..”Is what I’m experiencing or observing something I want to bring into my life in an even stronger way than what I’m experiencing now???”
If it’s a wanted experience, the answer for most would be yes. If it’s an unwanted experience or circumstance, the fact that it’s true or happening is not a criteria I find to be sufficient enough to give anything my focused attention. A better criteria is…..Am I wanting to attract similar circumstances into my life by focusing on this truth….Because enough focused attention given to anything will start to attract circumstances that have the same emotional feeling to them, unless we change our focus.
There are so many truths out in the big wide world, what’s wanted, what’s unwanted, and everything in-between.
We cannot eradicate anything by focusing in a strongly negative way on what we don’t like and find to be wrong within ourselves, others or the greater world, but we can experience all we’re wanting by focusing on all we find to be good in a strongly positive way and by making an effort to feel slightly better about those things we aren’t feeling so good about.
It’s a choice every single person is making every time we give our focused attention to something. Not knowing we’re creating our life experiences in this way means we may be focusing on strongly unwanted circumstances without making an effort to move our thoughts into better feeling vibrational places.
As always there’s a silver lining within every situation we encounter, especially unwanted circumstances, so even if we are living our lives without being aware of exactly how we’re creating it, manifestational evidence does strengthen as we move through time making it more likely we’ll start making the connection between what we continue to focus upon and what’s turning up in our experience.
Like all things in life, it’s a journey where we’re continually on the path to deeper understandings and knowledge. All experiences both wanted and unwanted have within them the opportunity for us to move forward in a more positive direction than we may have before the experience presented itself to us.
And sometimes we need to empty our cup a little….To allow enough space for something new and great to come in!!!
Now that’s something worth making an effort for….
And so it is….
