"Creating is not about making things happen through action. In fact, creating is not about making things happen at all. Creating is about allowing the thing you desire to happen and the allowing happens though energy alignment , not through action."
The Astonishing Power of Emotions - Esther and Jerry Hicks
I read this sentence the other day and it was a kind of an epiphany for me. I have been struggling with financial issues for sometime and this sentence shows me that I have trying to resolve it through action when I thought I was using the LOA. You know, "I'm going to use the LOA of attraction and I'm going to fix this." So I tried and struggled with maintaining positive feelings. Often my feelings would spiral out of control, delivering me into a mess of fear and worry.
This statement clearly indicates that the work required is to focus on alignment of energies and we can acheive this by turning our thoughts "downstream".
"I'm going to use the LOA and I'm going to fix this."
This statement is clearly "upstream". It indicates that I am going to take action by using the LOA "to fix this".
Downstream would be "I am open to receiving money. Large sums of money flow into my life."
This evokes positive feelings. Now we are in alignment with our non-physical self. Continuing downstream thoughts with accompanying positive feelings will ensure the prosperity we require will arrive.
