of Law of Attraction and momentum is what makes a thought that you might be thinking in this moment become a stronger thought that is harder to stop thinking I know how that works so if you can catch it in the early several stages when you first wake up in the morning there’s far less momentum of any thought wanted or unwanted and so if you wake up in the morning you acknowledge this is going to be a good day and I’m going to agree with Source more today than I ever have before and I’m going to try to look at the World Through The Eyes of source a little bit more today and I’m going to look for things to feel good about and I’m going to feel better today than I usually do and I love feeling good and I love the feeling of clarity that comes from feeling good and I love the feeling of Vitality that comes from feeling good too and I love the reflection that I get back from others when I’m feeling good and I love how doors seem to open for me more when I’m feeling good and it was just stay in that General place where you’re just acknowledging that you want to feel good and then watch how far you get into the day feeling good and then do it again tomorrow and then do it again tomorrow and then do it again tomorrow and then do it again tomorrow and before you know it really in a short period of time you will have adjusted your set point about you you will have changed your belief about you you will have modified your belief to be like the belief that Source has about you and then people will say instead of why aren’t you where you want to be they’ll say why are things always working out for you why do things seem so easy for you and the answer is I don’t know I just tuned into that I just wanted to feel better and so I looked for things that felt better and I focused more on things that felt better and after a little while I stopped feeling the way that I was feeling before if a train’s going 80 miles an hour that way and you want it to go 80 miles an hour that way you don’t want it to stop all at once and go the other way it would be really hard on what’s inside the train and it’s true of you too you don’t need to change this all at once you just want to one experience at a time acknowledge how Source feels about you in that situation so for example let’s say you are at work let’s say you are on your way to work do you ever go to work I work at home so let’s say that you are settling in to do some work what does that look like I have a big garage I’m a mechanic and I buy motorcycles so is that fun it’s real fun are you a good mechanic no nothing in to do some work what does that look like I have a big garage I’m a mechanic and I build motorcycles so is that fun it’s real fun are you a good mechanic no but I have fun so since you said no why did you say no because I compare myself to people who are really good and and have a lot more experience in myself and the amount of mistakes I do and all of that sort of stuff so as you make a mistake I throw things so let’s sort through this let’s say that you’ve awakened and you’re going to spend how many hours this day doing this thing that you’re not very good at [Music] pins how early I do a mistake so where do you get the machines that you work on do they belong to you or are unsuspecting foolish people bringing them to you for repair   so when someone brings something in do you sometimes say I’ve done that before I believe I can successfully do that does that ever happen to you are you getting any better oh yeah I’m getting beautiful and lots of people think I’m a good mechanic so it’s just me who who thinks I’m a bad mechanic problem do you ever have the experience where as you’re beginning to offer some action that you remember offering that action before and not getting the results that you wanted do you ever feel just the slightest bit intuitive about what you’re doing I’d get that as well yeah because there’s something that we’re going to give you here that is the reason for your anger we want you to know oh there are two there are more but there are specifically two really specific really Adept mechanics who from a non-physical point of view are guiding you are you ever aware of that   and the reason that you get so frustrated is because you’re not in the receptive mode and you can’t quite hear them your frustration is not because you’re a lousy mechanic your frustration is because the ability to be brilliant is right there and you’re not tuning into it and that is the reason for your frustration it’s not about what you’re doing with your tools yes and no one here is throwing anything even when you’re not in the receptive mode just keep nudging and giving you the impulse and knowing and knowing and knowing and knowing in other words if you’ll just chill out just a little bit those thoughts about what to do next not about how to get it done all at once about what to do incrementally next incremental steps because you know what there’s nothing that someone who was a really good mechanic while they were physically focused who is now non-physically focused there’s nothing that that non-physical mechanic loves more than being able to flow through the hands of someone willing to receive   of emotion every single time is about blocking what you’re asking for that’s why the tug of war is there that’s why you’re so down on yourself but you see you don’t need to be down on yourself because those mechanics are mechanicing through you they are they’ll give you the impulse they’ll give you the Insight they’ll give you the procedure they are giving you the what comes first and what comes second and what comes third and what comes next they’ll help you calibrate Motors in a way that you’ve never done it before they’ll give you the ability to hear they’ll help you tune to the sound of the engine in other words this is creation at its best ER watches sometimes on one of her properties because there often is a big cherry picker working on a roof somewhere or a back hole that is digging a hole somewhere she has a lot going on in a lot of different places and she loves watching those men on those big machines making the machine do exactly what they wanted to do as if it is an extension of their own fingers and that’s what we want you to feel we want you to feel yourself an extension of brilliant infinite intelligence focused toward any subject of your personal desire   and so it turns out that the only reason that any of you are ever ever ever down on yourself is because you’re not letting yourself really be yourself you’re not letting yourself be the performer the receiver and the performer of the inspiration that your desire has queued up for you but it can change tomorrow and it will the next time you’re in the shop you’ll feel a difference I feel a difference promise absolute absolute absolute and when you feel frustration know what it means I’m just not letting it in there’s guidance there that I can’t hear and the reason I can’t hear it is because I’m beating the drum I’m not very good at this I’m not very good at this when the truth of it is you’re brilliant at this at times and you know it sometimes something just occurs to you and you try it and it works and you go oh what a lucky thing that was no it wasn’t a lucky thing it was inspiration received by you you see so does this make you feel like a puppet on a string we don’t want it to we don’t want it to make you feel like a puppet on a string because you are the one that mixed it all up and asked for this you’re the one that opened the garage and put the shingle out saying that this is what I do you are the one that invites people over with their machines you’re the one that lets their desires dovetail with yours you’re the one that’s summoning this energy you’re the one that’s summoning this Brilliance you’re the one that has it right there your fingertips now you got to be the one who lets it in and it’s always the process how good it is that you know you’re not good because when you become good you’re going to feel the relief of not being bad in other words each time it gets a little better you’re going to feel a little more relief each time you hear a little more each time you have that tool in your hand and you apply it with more Precision each time the inspiration flows to you and you know what to do each time that happens That’s The Sweet Spot it’s not fixing the thing it’s not fixing it that’s the condition that we aren’t interested in you caring about we want you to enjoy the feeling of coming into your own we want you to feel what it feels like to pick up that tool and know it’s exactly the right one to walk over there we want you to Revel in that feeling of confidence we want you to approach that machine with that knowledge that is flowing through you and we want you to acknowledge that you’ve got something going on here that’s good we want you to Revel we want it to be fun for you you’re right on track when that when you say I’m doing it for the fun I’m doing it for the fun I’m doing it for the fun I’m doing it for the fun because we promise you the other end of that that Source energy mechanic is sure doing it for the fun really doing it for the farm does he get frustrated with me no and if he did your frustration wouldn’t be felt by you your frustration is your differing opinion with him it’s like you can do it I can’t do it ah you’re really good at this I really suck at this you’re figuring it out I’m never gonna figure this out I’m having fun this is fun I like figuring this out and before you know it here’s another promise to you you’re going to find new ways of doing things that no one here has figured out yet   you’re going to find ways of retrofitting things you’re going to figure out things that can be used instead of those things inspiration is going to flow through you you’re going to be the creative genius that you were born to be through this Avenue if you choose it because it does not matter what the subject of your attention is when Source flows with you it’s awesome I know yeah you feel better don’t you I do feel better yeah if you choose it you say yes because it does not matter what the subject of your attention is when Source flows with you it’s awesome you feel better don’t you I do feel better yeah thank you good enough
