We've talked about focus several times in the last few weeks. But, I really believe you can't talk about it enough. Problems usually arise because of three things - 1) someone isn't focused but the thoughts and feelings are scattered all over the place 2) someone focuses on the lack of something or on what they do not want and 3) because a person hasn't made up their mind what they really want (you've heard my story about not manifesting a hybrid vehicle because I couldn't decide which type I wanted and so I couldn't get specific enough to place my order to the Universe).
Use the contrast you have in your life to determine what it is you want. Pick the things you want, not the absence of what you don't want. For example, don't say "I don't want any bills". Instead, say "I have an abundance of money to pay off anything I want to pay and have plenty left over to enjoy my life the way I want to be accustomed to." Instead of "I don't want to be sick" or "I want to get well", say "I am healthy and hearty and can do everything I want to do." Look at health, NOT healing. So you are picking the positive things you want to focus on.
Then become specific about what you want. If you want to have plenty of energy instead of your fatigue, express that by saying to yourself (and writing down) "I have energy every day, all day and am able to accomplish so much more at work than ever before in my life." Or, "I have plenty of energy to run a 100 mile race". You can even use visualization to help you become specific because if you can see it, you can write it down in greater detail.
Make sure you know what you want and then keep your mind on that at all times. Make a treasure board or book so that when your thoughts wander, you'll be able to bring your mind back to where it needs to be. If you think about this, then that, then something else, the energy is diffused. You want to have laser focus on the thing you want. No matter what else is going on, that's where your thoughts are to be.
Focus on what you want, not the obstacles or what you don't want - do NOT allow yourself to be drawn in by the negative aspects of your life. Don't focus on the lack. Focus on what you're going to have. Remember that you have manifested it already - once you've done the above steps. Now you're just waiting for the materialization and you have to remember that the law of gestation may be in play as well.
I will give you a personal example. I've told you recently that I have epilepsy. I never once thought that that would keep me from getting in the Navy - at least until the day I was driving to the recruiter's station. I had simply assumed I would be accepted and that there was no reason I shouldn't be. I never even thought that my epilepsy would be an issue. As it turned out, most people will not be accepted with epilepsy. But I had not allowed that into my thoughts so my positive energy was sufficient to overcome the blockages faced by others. And I got in!
Try to monitor your focusing this week. Pay attention to where your thoughts are going - are they all over the place, are they on positive or negative things? What are you creating in your life? What do you really want to create in your life?
