I am excited to be teaching again soon the Infinite Possibilities—The Art of Changing Your Life workshop based on the book Infinite Possibilities by Mike Dooley.
The main premise of Mike’s work and this class is thoughts become things. If you are here reading this then you are probably aware of this notion or have at least heard it thrown around. So what does this mean?
Well, basically everything at its core is energy. That’s right everything. As a lot of things here on the planet Earth seem to be solid and have form, when you drill down to the quantum level to the smallest particles they are not particles but waves of energy. So we are actually just big bundles of vibrating energy in different shapes and sizes.
Thoughts are also energy. They too carry a vibration. And like vibration attracts like vibration. Can you see where I am going here?
OK, there’s the premise spelled out in a very rudimentary manner. The thoughts we are thinking are attracting more of the same energy or vibration.
Why do we think the thoughts we do? Because of our beliefs. What we believe and how we perceive the world causes what we think about. And where do our beliefs come from? The trouble is they often come from outside of us—we pick up most of our beliefs from our parents, our teachers and mentors we had during our formative years, as well as siblings, peer groups, our society and culture. Yikes!—that’s a lot of external input.
Have you noticed at times that your life isn’t going exactly the way you want it to? You want it to be a certain way and it’s just not. You may feel that you got dealt a shitty hand. But no, wait! Take a look at your beliefs first and see where these circumstances are coming from.
One of the most exciting things about this whole vibration thing is that we have control over it! We can change our vibration by changing our beliefs which will cause us to think different thoughts—thoughts that reflect the life we want to live.
How cool is that? REALLY! You might hear stuff about law of attraction and manifesting all the time but did you ever really sink into it and feel how amazing it all is?
We get to choose what shows up in our lives. Holy crap!
I have been studying this stuff for over 20 years and it still blows my mind. We are deliberate creators—how about that?!
Well if you know all this stuff but don’t necessarily put it into practice, where to begin? A good place to start is to focus on your end result, not what needs to happen in between.
You may say, how can I get to my end result if I don’t know the steps that will happen between here and there? As Mike tells us—“Don’t mess the cursed hows.” Meaning you don’t have to know, and won’t know how it is going to happen until it is happening. That is up to the Universe to put together for you. All you have to do is take whatever steps you can while keeping in the vibration of your end result.
An example from my own life: I have always wanted to write—ever since writing some poems in grade school. I had written some stuff on and off since I was in college but got caught in the trappings of not good enough. Even after getting positive feedback from a college professor and various other people in my life I chose instead to think about all the amazing books I had read and how I didn’t hold a candle to those authors. I focused on the “fact” that I couldn’t possibly have anything interesting enough to write that people would want to read it. I focused on the one essay that my professor said wasn’t up to par.
I thought the general thoughts that belong to the belief I am not good enough. I couldn’t see how I would ever be able to write and share it with others so I wrote occasionally and kept it to myself.
But it nagged at me all these years, still wanting to write, until I started this blog. When I first began I wouldn’t publish a post. I would write them and not put them up—even though nobody was even there to read it. I could not hit publish let alone fathom how I would get anyone to want to read it.
I finally one day hit publish. Then I slowly started putting it out there that I wrote a blog. And all of a sudden I am almost to my 100th post, I have folks reading (thanks!!) and I get a bunch of visits to my site each month.
I knew I wanted to write but had no idea or confidence about getting anything written out into the world. I did not know how I could ever make it happen. So I just started taking whatever steps I could at the moment and low and behold the Universe took care of the hows for me.
Do you have something in your life that you want to do but don’t know how it will come about? Stop messing the cursed hows and take that first step. You are the creator—it’s time to start living your dreams!
Infinite Possibilities class will start mid June and will be held in Salisbury MA. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
