I've been wondering something for a while- it may be a stupid question to some, but I'm genuinely "concerned":
SHORT VERSION: in bringing about specifics, does it really matter if I use my desires to feel good, or if I use something else to feel good- as long as I just feel good, what I want will come regardless of whether I'm thinking of it or not? Is being happy genuinely enough? Do different desires have different vibrations?
When it comes to learning about the LOA, in my experience I've come across information that's just confused me. I've been listening to abraham hicks for almost a year now, and I've been confused about a few things. I've heard abraham say that if you have too much resistance on a subject, give it a rest for a few days or weeks or however long you need to abandon the subject for, and then come back to it at a more general place so you're less resistant.
Then I heard abe say that you can decide you want something, and then never think about it again because it's law that it has to grow into something bigger regardless of your attention to it (which they also said it's unlikely that you won't think about it again because it's now active, and I agree with that), but then there are many others who say that you have to think about having it on a regular basis if you are to have it, but if it's someone like me who has a lot of resistance on almost every topic of my life, I can't think about my desires without feeling negative emotion. Not only that, but things I've decided I've wanted and have never thought about again, never came to fruition so I don't know whether or not I'm screwed because I can't think about what I want without feeling lack.
Also, by thinking about it on a constant basis, it makes it harder to let go of and trust, especially if you're in a negative place. In other words, it's easy to obsess over it and add resistance. Then, I've heard "You have to feel good about those subjects in order for them to manifest" which sounds contrary to "you can decide you want it, and then never think about it again." And then there's the "Get Happy". Get generally happy about life- use any excuse to be happy, and then everything you want will manifest, even things that are off the subject of the thing you used to perpetuate your happiness.
The head-scratcher for me though is, does getting generally happy bring about specifics, especially about things you've wanted for a very long time that have really great energy summoning power? Because let's say for example, I wanted to change my appearance- but I also wanted a new car, and both these things are very active in my mind. Those things are technically different vibrations in terms of make up, but are they all just grouped under "Happy" in vibrational reality because having them will add to your happiness? The only reason I feel this is a stupid question is because whenever I feel good and think about the presence of what I want, no matter what it is, it all feels the same. It all feels like "happy" and "movement" and "things working out", but I have to be feeling really really good in order to think about what I want, and I can't hold myself there in that "Happy" for long. I don't want to constantly have to think about things I don't feel good about- I don't want to have to change so many thoughts on so many subjects when I've never really been successful with switching to better thoughts. It creates a really big tug of war within me no matter how easy I start.
Also, I realized that after being apart from your manifestations for so long, too much doubt sinks in and desire becomes a chore and rather emotionally painful, so much so that I don't allow myself to want anymore because it feels very long and I'm not really sure how to go about getting around that.
I probably answered my own question, but I wanna know what you all think, especially those who have been successful in manifesting the things that they want, and continue to be successful.
Also, before anyone tells me that I'm too focused on manifestations and going about it the wrong way, I do genuinely want to be happy with our without my manifestations, I'm just curious about all of this and I want to understand what I've been trying to understand so that I have more trust in the process.
There comes the moment when the calling of your own Heart becomes so great , that nothing else matters. No opions or opinionated, no laws or lawyers, no instructions or instructors, no one at all ... just Me, MySelf and I. The Truth of everything, Truth ItSelf . There is nothing "else" to live for, there simply is no Life ..... without this Absolute, Absolute Love. This Love that is all there is to "me, you, they, them, it".
This Love of Being, that IS Being.
Love of I, Self, that IS I, Self.
One Self. All Self.
One I, All I.
I AM THAT I AM
I I I . . . ALL I
I appreciate your words, but with all due respect, it sort of has nothing to do with what I asked. I get what you're saying, but that didn't answer my question.
There is nothing more important than improving your state of being! Period. When you raise your vibration, good things will come into your life. The things you want or better. But now you have more access to creating the specifics as well. More important than specific manifestations, which are just objects and circumstances, is the improved sense of well-being and energy.
Then I heard abe say that you can decide you want something, and then never think about it again because it's law that it has to grow into something bigger regardless of your attention to it (which they also said it's unlikely that you won't think about it again because it's now active,
In this instant, you have no resistant (and likely never did). You just know this will happen and that is that. You let it go, knowing it will happen, and the universe takes it from there.
Also, by thinking about it on a constant basis, it makes it harder to let go of and trust, especially if you're in a negative place. In other words, it's easy to obsess over it and add resistance.
You had initial resistance, which is magnified by thinking about it all the time (and doubting it). Resistance in this case continues to build.
The head-scratcher for me though is, does getting generally happy bring about specifics, especially about things you've wanted for a very long time that have really great energy summoning power?
It’s really just about resistance, not happiness. Happiness never hurts in any situation!, but resistance is what tanks the LOA process.
Because let's say for example, I wanted to change my appearance- but I also wanted a new car, and both these things are very active in my mind
In my view, these require different approaches, process, and vibrations, but when it comes down to it, resistance is what will prevent it from happening regardless of the approach/process/vibration.
, but I have to be feeling really really good in order to think about what I want, and I can't hold myself there in that "Happy" for long.
Well that is because it puts you out of balance. You can not be always happy or always sad. However, you may know someone who is always sad, negative, angry, etc.. That person likely suffers from a huge variety of ailments or is always sick. They are manifesting their reality. An always ‘happy’ person likely isn’t truly always happy, therefore allows for periods of being neutral (or maybe not fearful?, which leads to resistance), and things always seem to go their way.
So, is it a yes or a no that each desire is a different frequency which requires attention to it in order to manifest, or is it all once frequency- all under the vibration of happy?
It's both. They have their own frequency, but it's also one frequency. When you raise your own vibration it's much easier to experience all these desires. Your well being is the most important thing. It makes it much easier to manifest specific things.
if it's both, then why is it said that you can decide you want something and then never think about it again and it will manifest? (that hasn't happened to me, but it has to others) I know you can do both, but from what I keep hearing, you don't have to- especially since there are those who say you have to think about your desire and get into the feeling place of it in order for it to manifest- and then there are those who just got happy and never thought about it (much at all, or ever) and it manifested.
-It depends on many factors, how attached you are, how big/small you perceive the thing to be, how much you desire/resist it
- there are many valid ways to manifest
- more important than manifesting anything specific - is improving the way you feel, increasing your vibration, your state of being. Doing so will make every desire you have MORE possible than currently, in addition to improving how you feel.
- being on a high vibration is irresistible to all of your desires. Which is why I said they're all "one" frequency. Aka Love/joy/bliss. Which is why gratitude attracts things like money, health, love, even if each individual subject is its own 'specific vibration'.
Have you listened to the Abraham videos on youtube where they say, "You are all making too much of all of this!"
LOA is a natural thing for humans. They will attract whether or not they are conscious about it,
okay, but I've done too much attracting what I don't want, so I want to know what I want to know. that's the thing
Firstly, this is not a stupid question at all. To answer your primary question, yes, each desire has a different vibration. Why? Because you feel differently about each desire. To take your example, you feel differently about changing your appearance than you do about getting a new car. That is normal. The difference in vibration is not really the issue though. Yes, it's there, but not really as much of a factor in actually allowing for the things you want into your experience.
So what is the issue? Well, just like everyone else on the planet, it's always fear that stops us. When you think about having something that you want, the resistance pops up. That's fear. So, the question for yourself is this: What are you afraid is going to happen if you receive the thing you want? As you go through that question with each different thing you're wanting, you will see different answers come up, but the thing to remember here is that none of the things you are afraid of are real.
Fear is always about what may happen. It is not about what is happening right now, and NOW is the only time there is. That said, if you maintain a specific fear long enough, you will absolutely create it into your experience. But it's not happening right now, so by remembering this, you can let it go that much easier.
As far as the idea of "you have to do this, or that" to get what you want, here's the truth: Every technique ever created works, and none of them work, based on whether you believe they will or won't. If you use something that works and it feels good to you, then it will produce results. That's the way it is. By using what works and feels good, you are offering zero resistance/fear and you then allow yourself to have what you want.
The other thing to remember and realize is that you manifest everything that is happening in your life at every moment. We are all indeed master manifestors. Being able to manifest is never the issue. It's being able to move past any fear and allow yourself to have whatever you want. =)
