The other day I was looking for a document I needed to send to my accountant.
I searched my office files. I looked through storage boxes (some of them twice). I climbed a ladder into the attic to look through some boxes up there.
The more I looked for that piece of paper, the more frustrated I became.
I’m sure you know that feeling. You can’t find your keys or wallet or something else that’s important, and the more you search the worse you feel.
The next day I was sitting at my desk and opened a folder. There it was, that document I had been searching for so frantically 24 hours earlier.
Why couldn’t I have found it the day before? I’m sure I opened that same folder. Why didn’t I see it?
Here’s what I do know. My higher self knew exactly where the document was. And my higher self wanted to guide me directly to it as quickly and easily as possible.
So what went wrong?
The answer is simple. I was so focused on the problem I couldn’t see the solution.
I had not been aligned with the vibration of my higher self. I had not been tuned in to my higher self’s broadcast. And so in my frustration and desperation, there was no way I could receive the loving, gentle guidance of my own higher self.
In fact in that mental-emotional state, I was not able to perceive the existence of that document even if I was staring directly at it!
This experience reminded me (yet again) why aligning with your higher self all day, every day is so important.
Your higher self knows everything you want in life and where you can find it—money, relationships, a healthy body—even the keys you seem to have lost.
And it knows the easiest, most enjoyable path of getting you there. But if you want to receive your higher self’s messages and minute-by-minute guidance clearly, you need to be “tuned in” to its frequency.
What’s its frequency? Joy, trust, ease, love, answers, solutions, fun… basically all the positive qualities and emotions you can imagine.
You can’t manifest financial abundance while thinking about the lack of it. You can’t improve a relationship while focused on your dissatisfaction with it.
A clear answer won’t come as long as you’re fixated on the question. A solution won’t manifest as long as you’re focused on the problem.
What we’re talking about here is the key to attracting and experiencing everything you desire in life: Learning to align your thoughts and feelings with what you want rather than what you don’t.
It’s not complicated, but it takes daily practice.
Relax. Trust. Think about what you want (“I picture myself faxing that document” or “I want to do things that make my heart sing”).
Practice tuning into your higher self’s broadcast by focusing on the outcome you desire and consciously choosing thoughts that keep you in a positive, optimistic mood.
It’s well worth the effort. Plus, you’ll find your missing keys quicker next time.
