You see there is a gap or time lapse between the feeling and the thought. If you feel first and then think, you have the opportunity to use the “six thinking choices” model so that your next thought will be empowering and take you up the emotional scale. If you think first and then feel your emotional response to your thoughts now you have lengthened the creation process. It looks like this:
Think - Feel - Think
Where as the first option looks like this:
Feel - Think (on purpose) - Manifest
It’s easy to get it mixed up, because we’re usually on a roll and it look like this:
Think – Feel – Think – Feel – Think – Feel – Think – Feel……
And for some people it looks more like this:
Think – Think – Think – Think – Think – Feel – Think – Think – Think – Think – Feel – Think – Think …..
You see, the confusion arises from the fact that we use words to translate our feels and as soon as we translate our feeling with words, we have converted the feeling into a thought. In that process of translation we end up clouding the guidance that the feeling contains by mixing it up with our beliefs, our perspective and our expectations; our choice of words and the way in which they are offered are indicative of those variables.
For feelings to serve as emotional guidance, it is better to just feel without translating into thought. There are only two ways to feel: good or bad. If you want to get specific about the way you feel, try using a scale of 1-10 rather than a verbal description. For example “how good do I feel on a scale of one to ten?” is a better way to figure out what to do next instead of saying “I think I’m stuck – what do I do now?”.
Once you put a label on where you are such as using the word “stuck”, now you have activated all your beliefs linked to the “condition” of being “stuck”. For some people, based on their own specific life experience this might mean “once I’m stuck I stay stuck” or “my situation is hopeless – I need someone to pull me out of this”. It’s harder to turn around a feeling of being stuck, compared to saying “I feel like I’m a 4 on a scale of 1-10, ten being best. What can I do to feel better?” In other words, getting unstuck is a much bigger problem than making yourself feel just a little bit better so that you can go from being a 4 to being a 5 – make sense?
I have found that a very simple way to make law of attraction work every time is to aim for how you want to feel rather than what you want to get. Aim to manifest a feeling.
For example, rather than say you want to manifest a relationship, and here are all the criteria or physical and personality characteristics of the person you are looking for, talk about how you want this person to make you feel. Say things like “wouldn’t it be nice to have a relationship where we always look forward to seeing each other, because it is so much fun when we are together – I can close my eyes and feel the fun” and then close your eyes and feel the fun. Feeling is the fuel that accelerates manifestation, provided you feel from a place of joy. If you focus on the thing you want from a negative feeling place, it is likely that you will push it away rather than accelerate its manifestation.
Don’t worry, you cannot get this wrong – when you start paying attention and noticing what happens in your life in response to the way you are thinking, you start fine tuning your feeling and thinking process and life just keeps getting better and better and better. It doesn't take long to turn things around.
Much love and appreciation,
