Many believe that our thoughts, words and actions are continually creating our reality. If this is true, we can create different or better realities by working to clarify our thoughts and by thinking more positively.
It's not that simple though, because our unconscious beliefs are equally strong in creating our reality, and when we think positively in a way that is opposing our unconscious energies, we create an inner vibrational conflict. Inner parts of ourselves feel battered by or resentful of the positive thoughts, like a child who is being told to eat their veggies. 'You love this spinach!' 'This spinach is so good for you!'
Soon the spinach 'accidentally' falls on the ground.
By balancing positive thoughts with an understanding of and compassion for all of our inner parts we create a deeper healing. And yet the system is more complex still: we have a karmic path generally mapped out before birth. There are energies and cycles we are working within -- a grand plan, subject to change while in process. And then of course there is also surrender to the higher outcome, another journey in itself.
Most of us think about change, talk about our desires, wish for improvement, or agonize back and forth about whether our plans are actually going to happen. Yet there is a moment when we become very clear and the energy coalesces into a single thought. I am ready for this. I want this now. The fuzziness of desire turns into a deeper knowing. The timing is right. The inner parts have resolved the conflict. The choice is in alignment with karma.
The action occurs.
It is rather simple and sweet when we align with our manifesting energies. We are all currently learning how to work with manifesting energies in a faster and more powerful way. Pay attention to the thoughts that actually create reality elegantly and notice the thought processes that seem to dither around in circles and create very little. Through attention to detail we learn more about how to actually use our thoughts to create.
