Hello Passion for Pitching Family,
This next blog takes us back to the Law of Attraction series I started last month. The blog I am writing today is about the Creative Process. It basically combines the first three blogs in this series so you can see how all the parts fit together.
After this blog I will be going into the intricacies of this process with explanations, examples, and definitions of perspective, contrast, belief and desire. It is my hope that by the end of this series you will see how everything that is happening in your life is all intertwined and interlaced and any other word describing a web that you can come up with.
The Creative Process is explained like this...
YOU ASK UNIVERSE ANSWERS (or yields it to you) YOU ALLOW IT IN
I am going to write this blog in three parts and attempt to explain how each step works with as few words as possible. Sometimes that can be tough when trying to explain how the Universe works so bare with me...LOL!!
Ok, so here it goes...
Step 1 is YOU ASK. Ok, so what does YOU ASK mean? You asking can be defined in several ways, the most basic is you actually asking. So, you would maybe speak or scream out to the Universe that you want a new baseball coach because you don't like the one you currently have. Or you may scream out to the Universe you want to throw a faster fastball because your competition is throwing harder than you. Or you may scream to the Universe that you want to have better command to all your pitches because you are giving up too many walks and it is hurting your outings.
That is an easy way to understand asking. You actually, consciously speak out loud or in your own mind about something you would like to have in your life or something you would like to have happen differently than what is currently going on.
Ok, so because this is an energy based, vibration based planet there are also ways to ask vibrationally. Remember back to the initial Law of Attraction blog? We discussed that whatever frequency your vibration is tuned to, that is what is going to come into your experiences. Well, when things happen in your day to day life which cause you to ask the Universe for something more or something different, you don't always have to consciously sit down and ask. Your body, your soul, your spirit actually is asking through the vibration you are emitting. This happens very naturally without you even needing to be aware of it. My example would be just like the on-star system you can get in your car where they track where you are at all times. The car is you, the honing device is your vibration, and the company that tracks your whereabouts is the Universe. Whatever vibration you are sending out at that time is what you are asking. The Universe hears it, knows it and is sending it back to you. That takes us into step 2.
Step 2 is UNIVERSE ANSWERS. Whether you believe it or not the universe is a naturally abundant and joyful place. If you would think of it as a constant stream or river it is easy to comprehend. The universe is a powerful, constant stream of joyful and abundant energy that is flowing downstream. Imagine the powerful Colorado river. Those rapids are roaring downstream and there is nothing that is going to stop that. Well, this is how the Universe is set up. There is a constant stream of abundance and joy that is flowing to you and through you, all you have to do is get on the raft, let go of the oars, and let it take you downstream.
You can also think of it as a cork in water. You can try to push the cork down all you want, but the only way the cork will stay underwater is if you are constantly pushing on it. Once you let go of the cork it pops back up to the top of the water. So when I talk about the UNIVERSE ANSWERS I am telling you that the Universe is flowing abundance and joy your way, all day and every day. No matter what.
The way you push your cork underwater or try to paddle upstream is by thinking thoughts that don't feel good. An example of that would be ridiculing yourself after a bad outing and blaming yourself for the teams loss. If you can think of a time you did that to yourself all you have to do is remember how you felt. So how did it feel? Did it feel like you were connected to that stream and you were full of energy and joy? Or did it feel like you never wanted to play baseball again and you hated a lot of things about yourself at that time?
Step 3 is YOU MUST ALLOW IT. Ok, so now as you understand and start to come to believe that this Universe is a joy based Universe, your only work is to allow that stream to flow to you and through you. Allow that cork to float. How do you do this? Since you are naturally a vibration based human being and the Universe is naturally flowing this joy and abundance to you, the only thing that holds you from allowing this in is you and the thoughts you think. Remember the blog on emotions? The way you feel is an indication on what thoughts you are thinking and allowing. If you feel crummy, you know that the thoughts you are thinking are probably not that good for you and they are disconnecting you from that joyful and abundant stream you want to be riding down. But if you can train yourself to think thoughts that make you feel good, then that emotion is telling you that you are letting that stream flow to you and through you. You are letting your cork float.
Now there is a fine line to all of this information that you have to find the balance of on your own. I understand that after a tough outing you are not going to be in one of the best moods that you can be in. That is okay, there is nothing wrong with that. The point is that once you become aware that how you feel is the most important thing, because how you feel is telling you whether or not you are headed downstream with the power of the Universe or not, then you get that your work is how to figure out how to feel good more often than not. Then you get that the sooner you can bounce back from a bad outing or a tough life experience, the faster you can be headed where you want to be headed. The Universe only knows abundance and joy and whatever amazing feeling words you can come up with. The Universe is always set up to let that abundance and joy flow to you and through you. Focus/ practice on allowing that to happen by focusing/practicing good feeling thoughts on all the subjects in your life.
When it comes down to it, it really is all about perspective and how you choose to view the experiences you are having in your life. As your perspective improves, the way you feel improves. As the way you feel improves, your life improves. And so on and so forth, it is a never ending cycle of joy and abundance. Remember, the stream is already there, the cork already knows how to float, YOU already are a naturally happy and abundant human being. There are just experiences that happen in our lives that we allow to take us away from the flow of that stream. You just have to remember to get back on the raft, let go of the oars, and let the stream take you away.
More on perspective in the next LOA blog. Hope this blog is assisting in bringing this all together for you. You are almost there, keep reading and re-reading these blogs. I will have some references for you at the end of this series if you have enjoyed it enough to practice and continue this work.
