Creating Your Life

We Create the Tone and Circumstances of Our Own Lives

This is the principle by which all things manifest (or don’t manifest) and it operates in every
aspect of our lives, whether we’re aware of it or not. Becoming aware of it and living
consciously can totally transform your life!

Everything is Energy

Everything is energy, including us. This fact is discovered and confirmed by scientists, meditators,
and philosophers. Plato, Newton, Carnegie, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Einstein and many
spiritual masters have spoken of this fact.

The energy of the mind is the essence of life.

Every living thing has a unique energy signature, a vibration. As humans, our vibration changes
by what we focus on. When you look at a beautiful sunset or watch a puppy playing
(or a happy puppy playing in a beautiful sunset) your vibrations will soften. If you pay
attention, you will feel a quality of openness and love.

Conversely, if you check in with yourself while watching the 5 o’clock news reporting
a robbery, you’ll probably notice that your vibrations will shift into a state of contraction,
actually pulling away from the quality of love. In other words, you will feel negative feelings.
Strangely the subconscious mind cannot distinguish between an actual event and a
dramatization on TV. Even your own imagination can affectyour vibration.

Our Vibrations Change With Our Thoughts

Our vibrations change by the thoughts that we keep our attention on, especially by the
thoughts that hold our dominant attention. If your mind is predominantly filled with lack or
resistance, you will feel a negative energy pervade your being. On the other hand, if you
train yourself to focus on positive thoughts, you will feel yourself aligning with love and wellbeing.

Like Attracts Like

Like attracts like -- something I wish worked with middle school crushes. In that case
it was more of "desperate obsession attracts horrified revulsion".

However, the truth is, we are magnetic beings. Whatever vibration we hold within ourselves
magnetically draws to us more of the same. Ever noticed how when you’re in a wonderful
mood, people around you seem happier, more polite, and easy to be around? Or when
you’re in a funk, people cut you off on the freeway or treat you rudely in the grocery store?
That is your energy at work! If we arefocused on negative thoughts and feelings, we
attract to ourselves more of that very same energy.
