The Joy of Creating Deliberately!
“Whenever your thoughts are on what you do not want, you are
creating by default.
When you are aware of your thoughts and consciously thinking of
what you do want, you are creating deliberately.” — Eva
Infinite growth. Eternal change. Never-ending creation. It all
begins with thought. Literally, every thought you think influences
and adds to what you are experiencing. Yet most people’s lives
change very little. How do you account for that? I had a client
say to me, “I don’t understand, Eva. You’re telling me I’m
responsible for everything in my life, yet there’s no way I would
have gotten caught up in this crisis on purpose!” I agree!
Certainly not on purpose. Definitely by default. It is the lack
of understanding of Universal Laws that has us creating our lives
by default. Once you understand these Laws, you can begin to create
what you want in your life consciously and deliberately.
When things are going wrong in our lives, we want to deny any
responsibility for creating it. And yet, until you understand
the power you hold and accept responsibility for everything in
your life — the good, the bad and the ugly — you deny
your true freedom in life! You are held hostage by the wants and
desires and expectations of others. And I’ve got news for you.
There is no way possible to satisfy all the wants, desires, and
expectations others project on you. It is a losing situation!
Simply put, Law of Attraction means whatever you focus
on you draw to you. So, if you are focused on something you do not
want, you attract more of that to you. If you are focused on something
you do want, you attract more of that to you. As thinking, feeling
human beings we are in a constant mode of creating, whether we believe
it or not. We are creators. Anything you focus on, by Law
of Attraction, you create. Without exception. Your creativity never stops. The good news is that once you understand this, you can be deliberate in your intent.
You can choose thoughts about the experiences and things you do
want in your life rather than thinking thoughts about what you don’t
want in your life. In other words, you begin to create what you
want purposefully and intentionally.
The Law of Deliberate Creation is simply understanding the Law of Attraction and then consciously and deliberately choosing the thoughts and emotions
that feel better. Always reach for the thought that feels better.
How do you know when you’re in alignment with what you want or when
you’re not? Check in with your emotions. Your emotions never lie!
So where does action come in? Clearly, as humans, we are action-oriented
beings. Yet, when we put our focus on being in action first —
being in the ‘doing’ first — we are going about our creative
process backwards. The natural order is to identify how you want
to feel, then identify what you want from that feeling place.
From that point, you will be inspired to the right action.
Let’s take an example. One of my clients wanted to increase her
chiropractic business to 30 new clients per month. When we first
began the process, both of us got caught up in the tactics, the
goals and the how-to’s of making it happen. It really got bogged
down. Once I realized what was going on — trying to make
something happen before getting into alignment with it emotionally
— I checked in with her. “Karen, how does this plan
feel to you?” There was an enormous amount of resistance,
feelings of “should” and the feeling of having to take
it all on herself, yada, yada, yada. We tossed it all out the
window and began again with what felt good to her. I sent her
away to do absolutely nothing over the next week except get into
the feeling place of what it would be like to have 30 new clients
coming in every month easily and effortlessly. She journaled and
visualized what a day would feel like if clients just flowed to
her. She saw them appreciating having her, and getting the relief
they were looking for. She got into the feeling place of what
it would be like to have the day-to-day administration handled
without her having to be involved and having it be streamlined.
From there, the inspired ideas came for the action steps that
worked for her. She went to a class on a database software package
that would streamline the administrative side of the business.
She organized a newsletter to go out regularly and follow-up letters
to be sent to prospects and past clients offering a special just
for them. She even found someone else to handle it all so she
could be home with her children to enjoy the planning and preparations
for their Christmas holiday. Within a month, she was attracting
30 clients a month and working less in the process.
Bottom line is, there is nothing more important than that you
feel good! And from that feel-good place, you can easily create
all you want in your life. It is the difference in coming from
a negative place, working really hard to fix what is wrong —
to being in a positive place, clear about what you want and attracting
that to you easily. Most of us haven’t quite gotten it yet that
life is supposed to be fun! Here you are in this creative ‘workshop’
called your life. It is your job to use this time/space reality
to create what you want in your imagination, get into the feeling
place of it already happening, and then allow the Universe to
bring about the people, places, circumstances, events and action
from inspiration that allows it to become a part of your physical
