We have grown to have so much faith in lack that taking that energy and then channeling it in having faith in abundance is so spaced out that our well-trained, lack-focused mind doesn’t accept or even begin to understand this new state of mind because it is not of our "already set" belief.
And what we believe is our reality.
We believe in lack so much that we reject the idea as of if it's of another religion, of another dialect & state of being foreign to our own – as if to suggest that there is nothing one can learn from it.
We make real what we believe.
And if our faith lies in lack, that we seek every possible way of how we CAN’T do it, and it is those ways that we encounter & experience.
We make real what we believe.
This leads to something that was said of how the mind focuses on the things we feed it, much like a GPS on a car.
Just like after the mentioning of your left leg would you then become aware of your left leg, just like if I were to talk about the air that is coming in to your lungs.
All the while you weren’t focused on that but now after mentioning it all of a sudden you become aware of It?
Take that and apply it in how your mind functions on a day to day basis, with your possible dominating thoughts of lack...
Just imagine what a mind that is locked in on lack and limitation can produce.
Now would a mind that is focused on, and is willing to defend, faith in lack and limitation be aware and begin to work with the “obvious” abundance and prosperity that life is made of and therefore we are?
No it will not.
Because just like you were not aware of your breathing pattern earlier on, you will not be aware of this Truth – due to the simple reason that the focus is just not there.
What we focus on, expands.
The “lack-filled” mind does not believe in “unlimited potential.”
This (“unlimited potential”) is not real to the mind and thus does not grab its attention.
Just like one would skip the business section on the newspaper and go straight to the TV guide or the sports section.
What we focus on expands.
Seek and ye shall find.
And it is so true.
If you and I make it our intent to notice only a particular car model like a pink Aston Martin V12 Vantage for example – the mind will be set to focus and call into existence that very image we are so intentionally determined to attract in the physical, depending on how clear the image is in our mind.
If we want it bad enough something within will lead us to receiving it to the level of clarity to which we held it in our minds.
Be it via your next internet search, or seeing it painted on a car, billboards or on TV, movie or even hear someone mentioning it.
When it does appear for our external sense to register you usually call it coincidence.
I ask you then how come it didn’t appear before you began “calling on” its manifestation?
And what if I told you that in essence there are no coincidences?
But that is another post all together.
What I want to bring to your attention is the subject of faith.
Faith is a law.
Everybody has faith.
It’s just that the majority of us have faith in lack so much that we will stand by this faith to the point of convincing others into this same set of beliefs.
Whereas a few of us believe in abundance (it is said that about 90-95% of the money being made in the world is received by the 10-5% of the majority that have made it a habit of having faith in abundance).
These select few have so much faith in abundance that they live a completely different life than the rest of us.
Because the community of “they” seek out every single way that will lead them to this abundance they believe in, every single opportunity that will lead them to this abundance they believe in.
We make real what we believe.
It is this state of belief that induces the different mindsets from these above-mentioned elite minorities.
The mind that has faith in lack is a mind that will look for each an every excuse of how it will NOT happen.
The mind that has faith in abundance is a mind that will look for each and every opportunity of how it CAN happen.
Two different personalities.
Two different lifestyles.
Two different responses at what life throws at them, which lead to two different outcomes.
E + R = O
Events + Response = Outcome
Jack Canfield mentions this in his latest life-changing self-help book The Success Principles(TM): How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be where he explains that the Events are just how life is, it is how we Respond to it that will determine our Outcomes.
Change the Response and you change your Outcome.
A part of how you can change this Outcome will largely depend first and foremost on How Your Faith Is These Days.
Your past experiences have contributed to a large degree towards who you are right now, but does going back to them in search of the knowledge you need to deal with your current challenges, if those past experiences you seek counseling from are those of your supposed past failures, work towards your benefit?
…hold on, didn’t I put up an update about this?
I guess it is true that we repeat for emphasis.
Be gentle with yourself in everything you do.
Pause for a moment.
Look to where you should rather be focused on and learn with every new step to become of New Thought and learn to believe in abundance, if that is what you decide to choose to believe in.
Look to how things should be, not at how they are.
Just like learning something new, it will take some time, but if you are patient with yourself you will master this.
Time is your greatest ally.
So invest in it.
A grateful mind is a God-like mind from which many favorable creations can manifest from.
The results you have in your life a largely due to the person you are.
“We attract, not what we want but, who we are” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.
Look to what you want to have in your life.
Identify what kind of person you need to become in order to have these desires.
Then become her or him.
Like Neale Donald Walsh wrote move straight into Being.
In that order.
Become, create definite plans that will lead you into action (Doing) & you will inevitably start Having.
It is said that if you act like the person you want to become for a full 30 days straight, you then convince yourself that you are.
It is said that ”the only person that succeeds is a person that is progressively working towards a worthy ideal.”
I can only tell you so much, it’s up to you to act on what you want to change in your life.
I also took a long time to act and kept on wondering why change was coming in drips and drabs.
Then I realized that if I where to have undertaken everything that I was suggested to perform from the very first chapter of …I don’t know…Bob Proctor’s “You Were Born Rich” as in taken each and every life-changing exercise and implemented into my life, then would have been steady and dramatic.
”Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes”
Something to do with comfort zones.
Like Shelby Collinge would say “If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you always got.”
