The Law of Deliberate Creation

Infinite growth. Eternal change. Never-ending creation. It all begins with thought. Literally, every thought you have influences what you are experiencing. Yet most people's lives change very little. How do you account for that? In the previous post, I said that you can deliberately choose to change your thoughts.

I had a client say to me, "I don't understand, Eva. You're telling me I'm the creator of my experience, and there's no way I would have created this crisis in my life on purpose!" I agree! Certainly not on purpose. Definitely by default. It is the lack of understanding of Universal Laws that has us creating our lives by default. Once you understand these Laws, you can begin to create what you want in your life consciously and deliberately.

When things are going wrong in our lives, we want to deny any responsibility for creating it. Yet, until you understand the power you hold and accept responsibility for everything in your life -- the good, the bad and the ugly -- you deny your true freedom in life! You are held hostage by the wants and desires and expectations of others. I've got news for you. There is no way possible to satisfy all the wants, desires, and expectations others project on you. It is a losing situation!

Simply put, the Law of Attraction means whatever you focus on you draw to you. So, if you are focused on something you do not want, you attract more of that to you. If you are focused on something you do want, you attract more of that to you. As thinking, feeling human beings we are in a constant mode of creating, whether we believe it or not.

We are creators. Anything you focus on, by Law of Attraction, you create, without exception. Your creativity never stops. The good news is once you understand the Law of Attraction, you can be deliberate in your intent. You can choose thoughts about the experiences and things you do want in your life rather than thinking thoughts about what you don't want in your life. In other words, you begin to create what you want purposefully and intentionally.

The Law of Deliberate Creation is simply understanding the Law of Attraction and then consciously and deliberately choosing the thoughts and emotions that feel better. Always reach for the thought that feels better. How do you know when you're in alignment with what you want or when you're not? Check in with your emotions. Your emotions never lie!

You may ask, "Where does action come in"? Clearly, as humans, we are action-oriented beings. Yet, when we put our focus on being in action first -- being in the 'doing' first -- we are going about our creative process backwards. The natural order is to identify how you want to feel, then identify what you want from that feeling place. From that point, you will be inspired to the right action.

Let's look at an example. One of my clients wanted to increase her chiropractic business by 30 new clients per month. When we first began the process, both of us were caught up in the tactics, the goals and the how-to's of making it happen. It really got bogged down. (Yes, even I still slip up after all these years. Dang!)

Once I realized what was going on -- trying to make something happen before getting into alignment with it emotionally -- I checked in with her. "Karen, how does this plan feel to you?" There was an enormous amount of resistance, feelings of "should" and the feeling of having to take it all on herself. We tossed it all out the window and began again with what felt good to her.

I sent her away to do absolutely nothing over the next week except get into the feeling place of what it would be like to have 30 new clients coming in every month easily and effortlessly. She journaled and visualized what a day would feel like if clients just flowed to her. She saw them appreciating her and getting the relief they were looking for. She got into the feeling place of what it would be like to have the day-to-day administration handled without her having to be involved and having it be streamlined.

From there, the inspired ideas came for the action steps that worked for her. She went to a class about a database software package that would streamline the administrative side of the business. She organized a newsletter to go out regularly and follow-up letters to be sent to prospects and past clients offering a special just for them. She even found someone else to handle it all so she could be home with her children to enjoy the planning and preparations for their Christmas holiday. Within a month, she was attracting 30 clients a month and working less in the process.

One of my favorite quotes from Abraham-Hicks is, "Nothing is more important than that you feel good!" And from that feel-good place, you can easily create all you are wanting in your life. It is the difference between coming from a negative place, working really hard to fix what is wrong -- to being in a positive place, clear about what you want and attracting it to you easily, effortlessly and joyfully.

Most of us haven't quite gotten it yet that life is supposed to be fun! Here you are in this creative playground called 'your life'. It is your job to create what you want in your imagination and get into the feeling place of it already happening. Then allow the Universe to bring about the people, places, circumstances, events and action from inspiration that allow it to become a part of your physical reality.

To your continued success!

Dear Eva,
I felt a need to respond to your Hicks quote, "Nothing is more important than that you feel good." It seems to me that there is an inherent flaw in that thinking. The flaw lies in the judgment we place on both good and bad. Often times the 'bad' has a greater impact on moving us out of a stuck position than the 'good.' Certainly, my feel good state of being may be very different than yours, so in that sense if I am most comfortable with isolation, then the key would be to not allow others who feel that isolation is 'bad' to move me out of my feel good state.

I believe the problem arises in our lack of acceptance (non-judgment)of the things we do that we feel are 'bad'. Good is equally a value judgment. When I compare myself to another (which I don't do anymore) and the green monster enters my head and says, "wouldn't you like to be just like him," I am in non-acceptance of self in the moment. I don't judge it. I just notice it and go on to the next moment. I could go on, but I don't wish to clog or hog your blog. Pay me a vist sometime at the place where I expand on these ideas.
