This new year you don’t have to resolve to eliminate all your negative thoughts… as long as you remember this:
Over the years you may have heard Abraham-Hicks tease us about our human tendency to worry that our negative thoughts may be harming us. Abe has lovingly accused us of fearfully chanting “cancel, cancel” whenever we catch ourselves focused on something less than sublime. We don’t want contrast to be creating more of what we don’t want… so we try to cancel out that negative thought.
However… because our energy around “cancel, cancel” is almost always fearful of attracting something unwanted, all we really accomplish when attempting to take back our negative thought is: we remain a match to more fear and more contrast.
Many of us have practiced this fear-based dance with contrast for many years now. Though our intent has been to overcome negativity, we have actually remained focused on where our thoughts and manifestations had gone “wrong.” Oops.
But now, in that brief but hopeful and festive time called the New Year, we can make a new beginning in the light, and you are about to learn exactly how to do it.
Thanks to the grace of the universe – and the freshly reborn energy of a new year – there’s a much easier way to handle contrast than fighting against our perfectly natural negative thoughts.
Instead of resisting the unwanted we are being called to welcome it.
As you may have noticed, lately the Abraham-Hicks message emphasizes flowing with and appreciating contrast, also known as “what I don’t want.”
Gently but steadily Abraham has upgraded our old concept of contrast as something wrong so that we can now let go of old tendencies to resist contrast and instead simply harmonize with this universal truth:
Contrast gives birth to the new desire that expands and enriches us
If there were no contrast to stimulate our expansion, life would be a big yawn. So if you actually think your life is a big yawn much of the time, you’re a good candidate to shift your beliefs about contrast.
In fact, any spiritual entrepreneur can make this shift at any time. Here’s how:
Starting right now in this new year (or whenever you read this), I invite you to gently release the old idea there’s something wrong going on when you find yourself experiencing contrast.
You can release this unproductive old belief by making a new decision that shifts your focus to the new desire birthed in contrast:
Decide that from this moment on you consciously chose to view contrast as the blessed expansion the universe intends it to be.
No more whining about contrast! Make a new choice to view it as spirit does: as a blessing.
From your new decision to be conscious about contrast, you can then choose new beliefs about contrast to serve you going forward. I recommend these two:
Belief #1: Although contrast has often shown up in your life in association with struggle and even suffering, you will nonetheless now remember, believe and trust this: contrast always has a high, positive and divine purpose in your life. Always. Because you have decided to be conscious about contrast, you can make the choice to trust in its positive and divine mission. Always.
Belief #2: You will also now remember, believe and trust that you are an eternal aspect of divine spirit. You were created fully capable of experiencing the bliss and divine power of being a creator. This capability exists in every single one of us because spirit created us in its image and with its capabilities.
This is why Abraham always reminds us: “You create your own reality.” It’s easy to take that short simple statement for granted, but when you genuinely accept and believe it you make a powerful inner shift.
Their statement is not a theory. It’s an accurate description of the way things are in this universe.
This new year – and at any time afterward – you are invited to open your mind and heart and fully receive what spirit wants for you: complete acceptance that you are divinely designed and therefore have full power to co-create with spirit as its partner and to continue your eternal journey of expansion.
Contrast is never anything more than the loving wake-up call spirit sends so we can step into the new cycle of expansion awaiting us. If you’re ever feeling overwhelmed by too much contrast in your life, you just temporarily forgot that contrast is one of your dearest guides, here to serve you by revealing any unnecessary wallowing in the unwanted.
Everything your heart desires is already manifested in your Vortex, but too much focus on here-and-now contrast can cause you to forget 1) you’ve already created those heart’s desires, 2)you’re always being guided to line up with them, and 3) your destiny is to attain them.
Starting right now, whenever you find yourself in contrast (and, being human, you will) you will also have available to you a deeper spiritual understanding regarding the arrival of what you may think is in your way.
Instead of fearing or pushing against contrast, as you may have done in the past, you will now remember and understand it as a blessing from spirit. When you stop resisting and instead welcome contrast with an open heart, it becomes your spirit ally, carrying you to your next level of heart, soul and mind expansion.
And also starting right now, whenever you criticize yourself or accuse yourself of being wrong or being stuck or feeling confused or struggling again… decide instead to remember the truth: you are eternally expanding and divinely designed to co-create with spirit. You temporarily forgot your divinity, until contrast showed up to help you remember.
Here’s to a blessed and creative 2018 and beyond as you choose to remember, believe and trust:
- Contrast is the gateway to creation and expansion; therefore contrast is always good
- You are a divinely designed co-creator with spirit – therefore creation is part of your divine heritage. The more you express creation the more you thrive.
- You are inspired by contrast to create, because expansion is your divine destiny
Happy New Year!
