That you are here is indication there is something for you to create, be and do. With every new idea your life becomes a canvass to be filled. There is nothing to complete because life is always in motion, life is always evolving and you are always growing. Nothing you have done so far was the end only the first in the series of steps waiting for more to be added to form that which you will become. Worry not that all the education, jobs, activities, or creations do not seem to go together for they will all mesh together as the collective ingredients in what you will create, be and do in the future.

Placebo’s, Practice and Praise

Good day to all from my Skycastle in Germany where winter, apparently with unfinished business, has reappeared. I woke this morning thinking I had somehow missed the summer and it was already winter again. Yikes, don’t want to do that!

Recently, I have been pondering the concepts of belief and thought how a belief is like a placebo. If you believe that something will affect your body, your life then it shall. Like the placebo.

Placebo: a substance having no pharmacological effect but given merely to satisfy a patient who supposes it to be a medicine; something of no intrinsic remedial value that is used to appease or reassure another.

We take a pill that we believe, because an authority/Dr. told us, will heal our afflictions. It matters not whether the pill was a placebo, a sugar tablet or an actual drug. If we believe the pill to be the drug we were told then the pill will heal us.

Everything is about belief, everything. Each belief you hold manifests into an experience in your life. Each statement you make whether positive or negative, to yourself expands; like a balloon as the energy of air is being blown into it, expands and when no more energy is needed for its full capacity, it burst into a great manifestation of noise. The energy of your thoughts, built one upon another, expanding and attracting like energies from the universe until no more energy is needed for its fulfillment burst into a great manifestation of matter, of experiences, of reality.

When you focus on thoughts of what you want the request of what you want, with its unique energy, it has been laid upon the Universes table as your order. The Universe picks up the vibration of that thought energy and begins to go to work on it, matching like energies to it. The more like thoughts you have the bigger the energy becomes and the Universe adds unto it again until the energy can’t help but to erupt into your manifestation.

Unfortunately what often happens is that the thinker, allowing their focus to wander and entertain fears, rescinds the request of the desire before it ever gets to build. The thinker begins to have thoughts or entertains beliefs such as, “But I can’t afford that” “That was a stupid idea” and “I’m not worthy of that” Thusly telling the Universe never mind and that the request has be taken off the table.

Another thing that takes place, that seizes the building of energies, is the practice of going from one desire, not focusing for any great length of time, to another and another and another; each time laying their request on the table, then snatching it back, lightly teasing the Universe, and then laying another on the table.

As well, the thinker, not realizing they are doing this and seeing nothing manifest, sites this as proof that The Phenomenon of Attraction does not work.

Just like the parent who implements a new way to respond to the unwanted behavior of a child, tries it for a short time with no result, then goes onto another new way to respond and repeats this over and over; thus deciding that nothing they have tried works so it must be futile and they give up; never realizing that their continuous negative, familiar and practiced response got results, although unwanted results. The fact is that the parent focuses diligently on the unwanted behavior of the child manifesting more of unwanted behavior; what if they put that kind of diligent focus on the wanted behavior of a child?

The answer every single time, too every question, is focus on that which you desire.

When I was raising my three children I practiced no response what so ever to the unwanted behavior of my children; I mean no response as in any facial expression, not looking at them and no emotional response. I just went about my business as usual. Oh yes, there were moments, when the child screaming at the top of their lungs, that it took everything I had to disallow myself an emotional response. But surely it wasn’t too long before they seized their tantrums. And because I diligently watched and listened for wanted behavior, calling great attention to the behavior, they would soon begin to dance and say, “Look at me mom, look at the good thing I’m doing” And oh what a delightful reaction I practiced, thus encouraging more of the wanted behavior. I practiced focus and thought on what I wanted. I talked to others, in the presence of my children, of wanted behavior of my children, that I recently witnessed; and my children beamed.

This is exactly what you can do for yourself. Let unwanted thoughts pass through, giving no emotion response to them, and focus on the positive good feeling thoughts, praising them and allowing yourself to have great emotional response to them.

Be your own witness, diligently watching and listening, to the things you appreciate about yourself, the positive thoughts that you have practiced, even if it was just a few minutes longer than usual, and the moments you told, out loud, your new story about how you desire your reality to be. Praise yourself for a desired behavior, thought or a realized manifestation.

You have manifested some wanted things and conditions; search them out, call them up and praise yourself for them.

Then stick your hand into the cookie jar and pull out another tasty idea or thought and focus on it, get emotional over it, sink your teeth into it and savor it. Roll it around in your mind adding more thoughts to it, of like kind, until it expands and explodes with great energy into matter, into your experience; then reach into the cookie jar for another.

It is why you are here; you are here to create and experience, create and experience, create and experience. What you create and experience is your choice. You have free will and a creative mind to manifest whatever you choose.

Choose thoughts of joy, love and abundance and you will experience joy, love and abundance.

What you believe manifest. Like the placebo effect, all you really have to do is believe and it will be.

Be Well

Love Michelle
