What an Un-Teacher has to Say about Positive Thinking

The reason Andie and I write this blog is because we feel that we have something fresh to say. Not something new. There is nothing new. But each of us does have our own perspective. The real truth is, we only think that when we stand with a group of people and say, ” ahhhh isn’t that beautiful?” , that we are all seeing the same thing. Some of us may be seeing a very similar looking experience, but it is never really the same.

Ahhhh, isn’t that beautiful?

The idea of “positive thinking” when it comes to manifesting a life you can truly love, is certainly not new. Spiritual gurus and teachers have been talking about it for many decades before The Secret movie was ever thought of. But can we or should we always be on a mission to think positively?

My years and its lessons have taught me a few valuable things that I want to share with you. Positive thinking, which in my definition for this blog post and subject matter would be, “to focus on the happiest and most fulfilling outcome  of a situation or experience”, is a good thing.

So why is it so extremely difficult sometimes? And why doesn’t every situation we practice positive thinking on, turn out the way we want?

Here are some answers:

The thing that actually affects that magnetic pull of the law of attraction the most, is an authentic, unwavering feeling. In other words, you cannot fool the LOA, unless you can successfully fool yourself into feeling that which you want to happen. The Law is responding to the most stable feeling and repetitive thought pattern.

That thought pattern could be this:

But if it is not an authentic feeling of yours and your deeper truth is causing you to feel something stronger, then this is what is happening:

So forcing yourself to think positively about a situation usually doesn’t work because it may not be your true vibration. And this is the non-personal aspect of the Law, that it does not know or care what we think is good or bad, positive or negative. To the Law, everything is simply an experience. That may seem horrifying to us in this human theatre, but would you rather not consider this reality, instead of pounding away at a thought or affirmation that keeps you wobbling on the precipice of a lie?

The best and most effective way we can live, is to find within each experience and situation, a truth we can resonate with, something we can feel good about, because we feel it to be true.

An example would be: “At 48, I can master the art of the drawing and oil painting.” That’s a stretch for my belief system. That statement has me dangling a bit on the edge of a vibration.

But I can stand with my feet steady on this truth: I can express myself artistically in a way that is unique to me.

Yes, when we can genuinely think positively about something, that positivity will always cast a vibration around it that will affect the outcome in a way that is desirable to us. But we cannot manifest on a lie. We manifest on that feeling that sits within our guts. That feeling is either a trembling excitement of expectation, a nervous sense of dread, or many places in between. And our work is to locate that feeling, call it what it is. Ask it the appropriate questions. And let it know that you want to meet it halfway; somewhere where both of you can start to feel good about the whole damn thing.
