As an empath myself, I have learned the hard way the importance of clearing my energy on the regular. When I have gone for many days without clearing it I can feel myself being weighed down with everyone else’s energies and negativities. As empaths it is most important for us to do this, otherwise we may end up confusing someone elses energy with our own. So, just as a general rule it is good to clear your energy regularly.
Lately, I’ve been curious about the aspect of allowing as it pertains to the law of attraction and manifesting. For me, this is definitely the most difficult part of the whole concept of manifestation. I have taken the time to sit down and get clear on what exactly it is that I want (step 1), and I have asked the Universe for it (step 2), but when it comes to the final step of actually allowing my desire to manifest (step 3) is where I get stuck.
I have been reading lots of articles and books about the art of allowing, and it really is not as easy as it seems. Mainly because of lack of self-love, and some other issues that are blocking my energy from flowing; therefore not allowing my desires to manifest.
So, I set out to discover how I can learn to allow these desires to come into my life, and here is what I discovered. A state of “allowing” means that you are fully aligned with the essence of the things you are trying to attract into your life. For example, if you are trying to manifest wealth then you have to get in the state of mind where you feel like you’ve already obtained wealth. Your affirmations should reflect your appreciation for having already obtained wealth. And to take it a step further, each day you should be grateful for all that you have been blessed with in this life.
A couple of other tips I discovered are first, detach yourself from how your desire will manifest, because dwelling on this will cause your vibration to lower because it represents awareness to the lack of your desire. Second, detach yourself from when your desire will manifest. Meaning you can’t sit around wondering when it will come. Instead, you should leave it to the Universe to align all the right circumstances and events to bring this desire to you at the perfect time.
Lately, I have been digging deeper into the whole aspect of manifesting, and I ran across a technique while reading the book, “Ask, And It Is Given,” by Jerry and Esther Hicks, that will allow you to manifest anything you want in approximately 68 seconds! Here is how it works:
Think of something that you want to manifest, and continue to hold that thought without interruption for 17 seconds. Once you have held a pure thought for at least 17 seconds, it will have enough momentum to activate another thought just like it, and now the two thoughts combine together to create a more powerful thought. Continue to hold that same thought purely for another 17 seconds, and again the Universe will send you another thought that is an exact vibrational match. These thoughts then coalesce to create an even more powerful thought. Continue this process of holding your thought for 17 seconds until you have reached a total of 68 seconds. Once you have held a pure thought for 68 seconds you have activated the Law of Attraction, and by law the Universe will now start to align circumstances and events that will allow this thought to manifest into your existence.
Because, as we know, whatever we think about becomes our reality. So, make the conscious decision to focus your thoughts only on what you do want, and not on what you do not want. By doing this, you are ensuring that you are manifesting a life that you want.
Being in alignment with Source energy is essential to obtaining what you want in life. But, many are not aware of the vital role that vibration plays in creating their life experiences. Are you aware of your vibration and how it is being received by the Universe? A foolproof way to know what vibration you are sending out into the Universe is to use the Emotional Guidance Scale. This scale is shared by Abraham-Hicks and channeled through Esther Hicks in the book she co-authored with her husband Jerry, “Ask, And It Is Given.” Through the voice of Esther, Abraham explains the Emotional Guidance Scale and how we can use it to determine our exact vibrational frequency at any given time.
The Emotional Guidance Scale is a scale of 22 of the most common human emotions listed in order from the best feeling emotions all the way down to the worst feeling emotions. The way it is supposed to work is you first have to identify your current emotion, and then find the corresponding emotion on the guidance scale. Also, the higher the level of emotion you are experiencing the higher your vibration is and the more in alignment you are with Source energy. Consequently, the lower the level of emotion you are experiencing the lower your vibration and the more out of alignment you are with Source energy.
However, do not worry if you are at a low level emotion because it is very easy to climb up the scale as long as you take it one step at a time rather than trying to make a quantum leap from a low level emotion all the way up to a high level emotion. As humans, we only have access to emotions that are a vibrational match to our current emotion. Which helps explain further why moving up the scale one step at a time is the only way to actually climb up the scale successfully. Below is a visual of the emotional guidance scale which will help you to further understand how to use it in your daily life.
