Step One of deliberate creation is having a desire. Abraham tells us this is an automatic, instantaneous response to stimuli and NOT under our conscious control. When we become aware of this response, we can use the understanding of it to focus upon the desire, but the desire itself is instantaneous.
Step Two is that the Law of Attraction brings that which will fulfill this desire to us. Once again, not our job, the LoA handles the “How” of things. (And may I just say, THANK YOU GOD!)
Step Three is allowing your desires to materialize for you. This, says Abraham, is our only job. “But, but, what the heck does ‘allowing’ look like, feel like?”, we wonder. This is the best question!
Let’s look at these steps in detail.
Step1 -This “rocket of desire” is a vibrational frequency which you are broadcasting. Think of it as magnetic emanations that take on the shape and essence of your desire. The non-physical part of you (I am finding it hard to use You to describe this at the beginning of a sentence) becomes a vibrational match to your desire by using the method we think of as imagination. “You” create images, sensations and feelings that correspond to the desire you’ve conceived of.
This imagined state of being creates a framework to hang matter upon, rather like a sculptor with clay might use a wire template to flesh out into form. This creates an energetic template for “you” to follow. Your EGS lets you know whether you are moving towards or away from your desired thing by whether you feel harmony or dissonance with it’s frequency, which your inner being is vibrating at, which it has “become”.
It occurs to me, just now, that if thought is the basis of all form/matter, then your inner being (“You”) is your Thought-self. I like this image because it is easier to see how one’s Thought-self is integral to one’s Matter-self, and also gives us a parallel for what follows here.
Okay, your Thought-self instantaneously becomes a vibrational match to the desire your Matter-self generated. It is instantaneous because it happens on the level of thought. Your Matter-self can know what to focus it’s attention on by whether the thought feels harmonious (good) or dissonant (uncomfortable). This is how Abraham tells us we can “feel our way” through life. With each new rocket of desire, we refine and/or expand our desires and feel our way towards them.
Step 2-As the tendrils of your magnetic emanations expand outward from you they are complemented by the LoA, which matches the frequency of your magnetism with things of similar shape and essence.The LoA brings us the opportunities to fulfill our desires and we discern the “right” actions from how they make us feel.
The “right” action, of course, is right only in the context of what we have asked for, and as the unique beings we are at any given moment. Not only can what we desire change, it is guaranteed to change. These are the refinements we make on a continuing basis. “I want to prove I am good enough” becomes, “On second thought, I am good enough, I want things to be easy” which morphs into, “Well, this is kinda boring, maybe just enough challenge to be interesting, but not enough to be painful.” Etc.
Step 3-Here we have the parallel I spoke of earlier. Your Thought-self became a vibrational match to your desires by seeing them, matching sensations and feelings to the “imagined” scenario. So your Matter-self does it as well. Imagine, remember or perceive in this moment that what you want is what you have and it will be. Make it so, Number One.
The way it’s meant to be is effortless, obvious, natural and rewarding. Have a desire and it is met. Ask and ye shall receive. It doesn’t feel like this is the way it is working in large part because we do not trust our feelings, have accepted false beliefs about what we can do, what we “have to” do, what we deserve and the duty we owe to others. Letting go of these forms of resistance can be hard work, (at least until the belief that it has to be hard work is released :)), but it gets easier and easier as you pay attention to what makes you feel good.
