Law of Attraction
The Science of Deliberate Creation
...continued from part one
Excerpts from The Law of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks
"Attention to what-is only creates more what-is"
The Law of Attraction is responding to you, to your point of attraction - and your point of attraction is caused by your thoughts. The way you feel is caused by the thoughts that you are thinking. So the way you feel about yourself is your strong and powerful magnetic point of attraction. When you feel poor, you cannot attract prosperity. When you feel fat, you cannot attract thin. When you feel lonely, you cannot attract companionship - it defies the Law. Many around you want to point out "reality" to you. They say, "Face the facts. Look at what-is." And we say to you, if you are able to see only what-is - then, by the Law of Attraction, you will create only more of what-is.... You must be able to put your thoughts beyond what-is in order to attract something different or something more.
Your emotional attention to what-is will root you like a tree to this spot, but an emotional (happy) vision of what you would like to begin attracting into your experience will bring you those changes. Much of what you are now living, you want to continue, so keep giving your attention to those things, and you will continue to hold those things in your experience. But anything that you do not want, you must take your attention from.
"How do I not get what I don't want?"
Jerry: Abraham, how would you tell people how to not get what they don't want?
Abraham: Do not think about what you do not want. Do not give thought to that which you do not want - for your attention to it attracts it. The more you think about it, the more powerful your thought becomes, and the more emotion comes forth. However, when you say, "I'm not going to think about that subject anymore," in that moment you are still thinking about that subject. So the key is to think about something else - something that you do want. With practice you will be able to tell by the way you feel if you are thinking about something wanted or unwanted.
"This civilized society seems short on joy"
Jerry: We live in what I call a very civilized society, and in economical and material aspects we are doing relatively well, yet I don't see much joy in the people around me on the streets and in the businesses, and so on and so forth. Is that because of those factors that you speak about... that they have very little desire but a strong belief?
Abraham: Most people offer the majority of their vibration in response to what they are observing. And so, when they observe something that makes them feel good, they feel joy, but when they observe something that makes them feel bad, they simply do not feel joy. And most people do not believe that they have any control over the way they feel because they cannot manage to gain control over the conditions to which they are having these feeling responses. It is their belief in the lack of control of their own experience that is most responsible for the absence of joy that you are noticing. And we must remind you that if you continue to notice their lack of joy - yours will be gone as well.
"How does action, or work, fit into Abraham's recipe?"
Jerry: So many of those I've seen who've had tremendous results in their life - people to whom joyous things happen materially, with relationships, and healthwise - don't seem to put out very much physical energy to receive these things. They seem to work a lot less than a lot of the other folks who seem to work much harder but who then receive so much less. So where does the physical work, or action part, fit into your recipe for creating what we want?
Abraham: You did not come into this environment to create through action. Instead, your action is meant to be a way in which you enjoy what you have created through thought. When you take the time to deliberately offer your thought, discovering the power of aligning the thoughts of your desires with matching beliefs and expectations, the Law of Attraction will yield to you the results you are seeking. However, if you do not take the time to line up your thoughts, there is not enough action in the world to compensate for that misalignment.
Action that is inspired from aligned thought is joyful action. Action that is offered from a place of contradicted thought is hard work that is not satisfying and does not yield good results. When you really feel like jumping into action, that is a clear sign that your vibration is pure and you are not offering contradictory thoughts to your own desire. When you are having a hard time making yourself do something, or when the action you offer does not produce the results you are seeking, it is always because you are offering thoughts in opposition to your desire.
You are mostly physical-action Beings at this time because you do not yet understand the power of your thought. When you are better at applying your deliberate thought, there will not be so much action for you to tend to.
