I was asked today about the MECHANICS of changing thought and then a few friends got emotional over the TOPIC and shifted the convo away from the process. That’s exactly how we get derailed in the manifestion process. We let ourselves get distracted and derailed. Don’t let EMOTION of any TOPIC prevent you from remembering the PROCESS. The process of relieving a situation by removing your attention from it, by replacing the thoughts of it with thoughts of something else, something happier and more optimistic.
I’d posted on Facebook that one of my favorite quotes was “As hopeless as any situation feels it’s really only your thoughts that you are dealing with and you have the power to change those” by Louise Hay. FB friend Sharon asked, “What about the kids taken from their parents? How is that just a thought I am dealing with?”
If you’re asking the same question, you misunderstand. I was talking about the MECHANICS of changing thought. Don’t confuse the TOPIC with the PROCESS. Don’t let EMOTION of the TOPIC prevent you from remembering the PROCESS. The process of relieving a situation by removing your attention from it, by replacing the thoughts of it with thoughts of something else, something happier and more optimistic.
Important to note, the process of relieving a situation by removing your attention from it relieves it by removing it from YOUR experience. How does that help? It takes you out of vibrational resonance with it, so you no longer fuel that flame. When your attention moves AWAY from the hopeless situation, you will stop being attuned to it and stop attracting things like it.
Remember, the question wasn’t “how do I help these kids?”
The question was “how can I change what I view as a hopeless situation if it’s only my thoughts I am dealing with and I have the power to change those?”
Using the immigrant children situation as an example, first understand, it does not matter WHAT the topic is. If seeing or hearing about a topic causes you distress, the way to lessen your distress is to get off that topic. Get OFF that topic and purposely get ON a topic that makes you feel happy. Otherwise it can affect all areas of your life because it’s all related. Everything.
So the answer is easy until you say “how is it just a thought when kids are being taken from their parents?” Because everyone then shifts their attention from “the process” to “the topic.”
You asked how to change it. this is the process to change it.
The thing that is causing you pain is thinking about the topic. Is it unjust? Yes. Is it horrible? Yes. But IF it is NOT your battle to fight and there is nothing you can do about it, get off the topic if it makes you feel bad. If you feel bad, you’re not doing anyone any good.
If it doesn’t feel right to you to get OFF that topic and think happy, fluffy thoughts so you can bring happy, fluffier people and circumstances into your experience, then DO something about it. Pray for guidance about where your time might be better placed, where you can do good right where you are, starting now, today.
A galpal said, “We HAVE to deal with our hearts and our emotions as human divine beings … otherwise it’s just a mind game … What would Jesus do? turn his back on his children ? um I don’t think so.“
To that I say: Sharon didn’t ask WWJD, she asked how is it just a thought she is dealing with. She asked me what the mechanics of that was, what the technical process was. I told her what the process was.
And yeh, I know that sounds fluffy if you don’t know how it works. If you stay ON the topic that causes you distress, it’s the same as being dialed into that station on the radio. You’re got to be on that frequency to even hear about things like that bc if you’re on 98.5 you can’t hear what’s on 88.3. So you stay ON your aggravating topic, you read about it, you chat about it with friends, you’re not only ON that station, when you’re on 98.5, you’re also attracting into your life people and circumstances that are also on 98.5.
When you start watching the news and getting aggravated, you’re likely to have all sorts of other aggravating stuff begin happening because that’s where you’ve vibing by paying attention to all that. That’s the channel, the station you’re dialed into. But you can change it in an instant, by moving your focus to something happier. because then you begin attracting all sorts of other happy stuff to focus on.
Does this mean turn your back on the woes of the world? Ah, there’s the dilemma, isn’t it? There’s the work: balancing enough caring what goes on in the world with keeping your focus uplifted so you can have a happy, successful life. You’re the only one who can decide where that balance lies. But the process to do it lies in merely removing your attention from distress.
Gravity doesn’t care if you have a moral dilemma with everything dropping to the ground when released. Gravity is just a natural force at work in the world, the same as it’s a natural force attracting something when you place your attention on it.
