Become the Deliberate Creator of Your Life

becomethecreatorDo you realize that you are the creator of your life?

I know, that’s a powerful statement. And I also recognize that many people feel powerless in their lives. They feel like they are buffeted by the winds of change and uncertainty, with no idea what to expect from the future. Many people even fear the future, because they expect the worst.

But if you knew your true power, you would know that you have created your life from day one.

Wouldn’t you love to learn how to purposefully use this power? I know for most with whom I’ve worked through my life coaching practice, they imagine a very different life for themselves if they consciously, purposefully used this power to create. And I agree with you, and want that for you.

Let’s first talk about this power, because it cannot be overstated. If you see how it’s worked so far in your life, you can begin to use it consciously to create your future.

The principle is simple, and I’m sure you’ve heard it before: what you focus on expands. What you put your attention to grows. The frequency at which you vibrate attracts that which vibrates likewise. It’s extremely simple, yet sometimes challenging to put into practice. It doesn’t need to be, though.

How It Normally Works

Most people go about life reactively. An event happens, and you react to it. If something good happens, you’re happy. If something bad happens, you are upset in some way.

Let’s take a look at this from the perspective of the above principle. If something good happens, you focus on it, and feel happy. As a result, you’re vibrating at a high level, and more happy things are brought to you. Yet on the converse side, when something “bad” happens, you feel negative, vibrate on a low level, and therefore more bad-feeling things are brought to you. What you focus on, you get more of.

Many people object, “But if that were the case, I’d be rich by now!” But this is where the subtlety comes in, and where it is vital that you recognize what you are focusing on, and what you are feeling.

Most people who focus on wanting more money feel badly while they are having that desire. They think about how nice it would be to have more money, but feel hopeless, or discouraged, about actually getting that money. As such, they’re really bringing to themselves more lack-of-money, because that’s what they’re focusing on.

Think back through your life, to a time you really wanted something, but felt fear, or hopelessness, or discouragement around receiving it. I’m sure you will notice that when you held these vibrations around the object of your desire, you were subsequently held away from achieving it.

I remember a few instances where this happened to me. After graduating high school, I desired more than anything to attend a certain prestigious university. I had the grades for it, and my SAT scores were superb. I went ahead and applied, had the interview, and eagerly awaited the results.

But in the meantime, I had horrible fear around it. I was so anxious, just waiting for the letter to arrive. I knew I was smart, but wasn’t certain if I was “worthy” enough to get into this particular school.

And indeed, the letter arrived, and I was not accepted. I was told that it was a very close call. In other words, my desire was strong, making the desire achievable to me, but my fear was also strong, holding me just out of reach from it.

How To Take Control

So how do you learn to use this inherent power you have unconsciously used all your life? It is simple: stop focusing on what you don’t want, and begin focusing on what you do want.

I could stop there, and you’d know everything you’d need to know to put this to use, but still it can use some clarification.

When you focus on your desires, don’t do so from a place of lack. Focus on them from a place of feeling good. Think about how it would feel if that desire were fulfilled. Feel the joy, happiness and accomplishment of the desire achieved. Then, do your best to keep in a good-feeling place as much as you possibly can.

A couple years ago, my wife and I moved to western NY, and I was looking for a good piano teacher. I had studied music in school and wanted a piano teacher who would help me to continue my progress, as the pieces I play are advanced.

During this search, I knew I could find someone. I knew I was an exceptional pianist and similarly required an exceptional teacher. I didn’t want to settle for anything but the best.

I called up a few teachers and let them know of my prior musical studies. All said that they could not serve musically advanced students. But the last teacher I spoke to referred me to a woman who taught up at the local university and was apparently a very good teacher.

So I called her up and again told her what I needed. At first she said she doesn’t accept students outside of the university. However, once I explained my history and what I was looking for, she agreed to see me. And indeed, we worked very well together and she taught me even more than I learned in college, so it was a perfect match.

Hopefully you can see the difference between my two stories. In the first, I didn’t know if I was good enough to get into the university. I doubted myself. As a result, I was denied. But in the second story, I knew my own talent, and wouldn’t accept anything less than the best for me. Consequently, I easily found the perfect teacher for me, and it worked out amazingly. I focused on what I wanted and got exactly that.

As you can see, it can be simple. It doesn’t require any complicated techniques. You don’t need affirmations, vision boards or any of the rest, as long as you feel good while you think about the desire, and even (especially) when you aren’t thinking about it.

Why is it important to always feel good? Because the law of attraction works by how you feel throughout your day, not just when thinking about that desire. You are putting out vibrational signals all throughout your day. The worse you feel, the more resistant you are to the wonderful things the Universe has in store for you. The better you feel, the more allowing you are for those good things to enter into your life easily.

Manifestation Is Simple

Here’s the great thing: the Universe knows exactly what you want. You don’t need to be extremely specific with affirmations or visualizations, and indeed, the more specific you are, the less room you are giving the Universe to work in. Every time you feel the contrast of something unwanted, you are telling the Universe, “I don’t want this,” and the Universe goes about fulfilling your intentions. Similarly, every time you experience something you do want, you tell the Universe “I want this,” and it goes about fulfilling that intention.

You don’t realize it, but you are doing this almost every moment of every day. Any time you see something you like, such as a nice car, a beautiful house, some item in the store you want, you are making known to the Universe what exactly you desire. This is why detailed affirmations aren’t required.

There are only two things that are required: having a desire, and then aligning yourself vibration-ally with that desire. All I mean by that is to purposefully feel good as much as you are able.

I already discussed in my previous article how to feel happy no matter what. It should not be a struggle, because your natural state is one of happiness and joy. The less you resist life, the better you will feel, naturally and without effort. Feeling good should be effortless.

The most important thing is this: stop responding to the outer circumstances with inner feelings. When you do so, you only create more of the same. Instead, intentionally choose what you will feel, and what you put your focus on, and then you will become the deliberate creator of your life you were always meant to be. Don’t be afraid to enter into your imagination more often. Feel free to daydream, to fantasize, about exactly what it is you want. For indeed, you are telling the Universe exactly what sort of life you want to lead. Today’s imaginations, if held in a place of high vibration, will become tomorrow’s reality, so play in your imagination with gleeful abandon.
