While we might hope that we can simply “power through” with whatever goal we have in mind, it is helpful to know what kind of results are realistic when facing new, uncertain situations since some of the things we’d most like to experience can feel the most out of reach. Since any kind of goal is theoretically possible, how can we tell which goals are realistic? Most of us deem some kinds of instantaneous transformation to be more believable; we tend to expect smaller “miracles,” while considering larger manifestations to be less possible. The truth is that Nature operates with discontinuous ‘jumps’ occurring on a regular basis, as quantum biologists are beginning to realize.
Setting Attainable Goals: Listen to Many Minds
Instead of being of just one mind, each of us is a multitude. For example, each of our minds includes numerous different overlapping memory systems though we are seldom aware of just how we reconstruct our memories of specific events each time we recall them. Our many minds establish a naturally redundant and highly resilient system that we can trust even when “life happens,” and things occasionally go “wrong.”
As David Eagleman writes in Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain,
“Almost the entirety of what happens in your mental life is not under your conscious control, and the truth is that it’s better this way. Consciousness can take all the credit it wants, but it is best left at the sidelines for most for the decision making that cranks along in your brain.”
Our conscious mind is like the tip of an iceberg, with the vast majority of what goes on happening below what we can readily observe. Without support from our subconscious believing something to be possible, we can waste energy fighting inner battles that result in outer signs of getting stuck, delayed, or diverted. When we observe thoughts and feelings conflicting with our goals, we can gain insights into how to be more open-minded to new possibilities, as we revise our goals as need be to best ensure our success.
The Universal Law of Attraction is a tool for manifesting. It is based on the idea that whatever we give a lot of attention to will become part of our lives. In doing so, you are co-creating with the Universe. What you focus on becomes your reality so it is very important to pay attention to your thoughts, your words, and your actions. Like attracts like. It is truly that simple.
Listen to the words that you speak and know that word modification may be necessary to avoid confusion and to be clear about your intentions. Becoming aware of the words you are using takes time and lots of practice. Listening to other individuals is much easier. I suggest that you really listen when others are speaking and pay attention to their word choices. It will assist you in becoming more aware of your own vocabulary.
In order to use the Law of Attraction effectively and efficiently, it is imperative that you clearly identify what you want, focus your thoughts on what you have identified, and then allow it to manifest. In other words, do not block the manifestation from occurring by infusing it with doubt, worry, and fear. Also, take into consideration that you will attract what you desire if it is for your Highest and Best good. Release the need to control the details of the manifestation process such as the how, the when, the why, the what, and the where of it. Believe it, live it, and you will manifest it if you are intended to.
What I have come to realize is that life is truly all about making choices and then choosing to take action. When we align our thoughts, words, and actions with our beliefs and come from a place of love, AMAZING things happen. We attract those people into our life who are a reflection of us. Assessing relationships and choosing to allow some relationships to run their course, so to speak, is necessary in becoming a better you. As you make the conscious effort to maintain healthy relationships and end unhealthy ones, you are taking control of your life.
