One of the things they talk about in the first chapter is the idea of pivoting.
Basically it comes down to this:
Stop thinking about what you don’t want and start thinking about what you do want.
If you catch yourself thinking about what you don’t want – stop yourself immediately and pivot to thinking about what you do want instead.
The Law of Attraction works according to your thoughts and the vibration you are giving out while having those thoughts.
So if you are thinking that you don’t have enough money and you have very strong emotions toward that subject – you can pretty much predict what you are going to attract to yourself. Even more of “not having enough money.”
So the idea is to keep your focus on what you do want. Thinking about how it feels to have more than enough money, feeling the relief of how it feels to have all your bills paid, feeling the excitement of how it feels to buy anything you desire to have in your life, even if in your current now moment it hasn’t happened yet.
This is an excerpt from the book that explains it brilliantly
“ Since you cannot speak of what you do want and what you do not want at the same time, the more you speak of what you do want, the less frequently you will be speaking of what you do not want. And if you are serious about telling it like you want it to be rather than like it is, you will, in time (and usually a rather short time), change the balance of your vibration. If you speak it often enough, you will come to feel what you speak.
But there is something even more significantly powerful about this Process of Pivoting: When life seems to have you negatively oriented toward the lack of something you want, and when you make the statement “ I know what I do not want; what is it that I do want?” the answer to that question is summoned from within you, and in that very moment the beginning of a vibrational shift occurs. Pivoting is a powerful tool that will instantly improve your life.”
You see most people have a tendency to tell it how it “is” right now. The problem with that however is that as long as you keep your focus on what “currently is” the more you are doomed to repeat it in your future moments. If your focus is how you are lacking in something, universe now takes its cue and continues to bring more of what you are focused on.
Hence the reason so many people feel like they are stuck on a treadmill day after day – running as fast as they can, but not getting anywhere.
It is simply because they keep having the same thoughts day after day, so day after day they keep getting the same results.
If however, you keep your focus on what you are wanting for your future and you are feeling it, and envisioning it and speaking of it and writing about it – universe now has a new blueprint to follow.
You see that is the wonderful thing about universal energy. It can not differentiate between what is “real” and what “isn’t”. It can only create based on the vibration it is receiving. So if you are vibrating as a rich person, or a peaceful person, a loving person, or a lucky person it has no choice but to go down that new road.
So try this method today. Every time you start feeling bad thinking about something you don’t want – immediately stop and ask yourself – “Forget about what I don’t want. What is it I do want? How does it feel to have that?”
You will be amazed at how quickly your vibration will change, how much better you will feel and more importantly how much easier things will seem to come to you from the “outside” in response to your new way of thinking.
By the way I highly recommend that you purchase this book, if you haven’t already done so. It not only discusses how to attract more money but also how to attract health and happiness in all areas of your life. Another “must-read” by Abraham-Hicks!
