According to the law of attraction, positive thoughts attract positive things and negative thoughts attract negative things. There are those that believe this and there are those that believe that this is load of rubbish.
This doesn’t mean that there are only two type of people, though, as there are people who believe that there is more to it than this. What these people can believe is that it is not just someone’s thoughts that affect their life, it is also their feelings.
Just a Small Part
Someone’s thoughts are then going to be important, but they won’t be as important as their feelings. Ultimately, their feelings will be what have the biggest effect on how they experience life.
One way of looking at this would be to say that their thoughts are like the words on a page and their feelings are like the voice that reads these words out loud. The second part is what brings them to life.
With this in mind, it is going to be vital for one to have thoughts and feelings that are positive. If someone has a positive inner world, their outer world should mirror back what is taking place within them.
On the inside they will be tuned into a certain frequency, which will allow them to experience things externally that match up with this inner frequency. This will be no different to how if one has the frequency that is needed for a certain radio station; they will pick up that station.
There are likely to be plenty of people out there who can relate to this, with them being only too aware of how powerful their thoughts and feelings are. Someone like this may be able to think of all kinds of things that they have ‘manifested’.
A lot of what they have desired may have just seemed to have found them, without them needing to put in too much effort or to struggle. They may find that it is not a struggle for them to experience positive feelings, either.
Someone else may find that it is a challenge for them to experience positive feelings and, even though they do experience them, their life isn’t the way that they want it to be. As a result of this, they could come to the conclusion that they don’t have an effect on their life.
One is then going to be nothing more than an observer of their reality. The reason why it can appear as though they are merely an observer of their reality could be because of what is taking place at a deeper level.
A Common Lie
When it comes to what is taking place at a deeper level, this will partly relate to the emotional pain that is in their body. The trouble is that one may have come to believe that their thoughts create their feelings.
Thanks to this, it can mean that they are not even aware of the fact that they could be carrying emotional pain. The emotional pain that is in their body will most likely have a big effect on what they do or don’t experience.
If they are carrying emotional pain in their body, it is highly unlikely that positive thinking will cause this pain to simply disappear. What it will probably do is just cause them to disconnect from how they truly feel.
One can then force themselves to have positive feelings by using positive thinking, but underneath all this positivity will be a lot of negativity. Yet, even though they will be out of touch with how they truly feel, it doesn’t mean that these feelings won’t be having an impact on their life.
A Powerful Force
Nonetheless, if one is unaware of what is taking place in their body, it can seem as though things just happen to them. A quote by Carl Jung comes to mind here, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
One way to view their body would be to say that it is also their unconscious mind; the area of ones being that carries the things that they don’t want to face. When it comes to the pain that is in their body, this can be the result of what they have experienced during their adult years and what took place when they were younger.
Let’s say that their early years were a time when they were abused and/or neglected - this would have meant that their vibration/resonance was set at a very low place. They may have been used to feeling powerless, worthless, helpless and hopeless.
The years would then have passed but they will still be in place very low place energetically. It is then not going to be much of a surprise that it is more or less impossible for them to create a fulfilling life as an adult.
Brought Up To Fail or To Succeed?
Taking this into account, if someone was given the right care as a child, and thus, experienced positive feelings throughout this time in their life, it is not going to be much of a surprise if they generally find it relatively easy to manifest what they desire. They will have the right energy within them.
Someone like this won’t be at a really low place and have the need to get to a much higher place. They will also believe that they deserve to have their needs met and they will trust that they will be met.
If one can see that they are carrying a lot of emotional pain, and they want to deal with this pain, they may need to reach out for external support. This is something that can take place with the assistance of a therapist or a healer.
