What exactly are vibes?

Yes, I use fluffy words like vibes, energy, and intuition. That’s part of who I am after the big change after my divorce. I am a changed person for the better, but man it was hard work and very humbling. Yet a big part of me is the same old Pat. Back to the subject at hand. Vibes and energy are a big part of the new me and my new knowledge and experience. The following is what I have learned through experience.

What are you attracting?

If I could tell people about my greatest truth or personal discovery, my answer would be Everything is Energy! It is my own philosophy that came through observation and my own life experiences. If your current inner hum or inner energy or vibe is frustration, that is what you will attract more of. If it is happiness, that is more of what you will attract. For me, that’s a fact, Jack! You can feel the energy in a crowd of people, in a small group, or in one person.

I have felt the energy of an event or person to make an informed choice. I use my intuition every day doing many routine tasks to feel the energy of What Is, to make the best decisions going forward. You can too.

This does not guarantee life won’t throw you a curve ball now and then. But the only real power or control you have is how you act in regards to the outer circumstances. You can use your knowledge of the energy of a situation or person to guide you.

On gossip and complaining

Not engaging in gossip in a small office or group of people is very hard to do. Gossip may start out in the form of being strictly information. But be careful. I have often been tempted to join in. It is a lifelong work in progress and I constantly work on being more positive and happy. At the time of writing this article, I have been at my current job over fourteen years. There is a high potential for a lot of baggage to have collected over the years. Learning to let go is a good habit. Learning not to collect the baggage in the first place is even better! I am proud to say that where I work, there is very little gossip these days.

You are the author of your life

You are always in charge of your life. No one else is. Just you. Really. And no one person, no outside circumstance or event can change that. The quality of your life and the direction it takes on a moment-by-moment basis is now, and always has been, in your control.

Here is a quote from Viktor Frankl that illustrates this point. He spent time in Nazi concentration camps and this was one of his insights.

Everything is energy

That’s my personal mantra. It’s something I’ve learned through observation and experience. The Universal Flow is made up of energy, as are thoughts and emotions. Energy is almost one and the same with the Universal Flow. It is the matrix within all of us lives our lives. There isn’t a thing that does not have energy. Even a rock has moving molecules, albeit they move very slowly and not too much. Manmade substances move too at the molecular level. It’s all energy.

Having a loving intent

Probably the single most important point to remember in going forward consciously creating and living your own life, is to hold a loving intent in your heart. Feel it, breath it, sense it, know it, and hold it in your heart. When you speak, that loving intent will be present, and others will notice it, and they will be affected by it. They will not be able to help being enveloped by it. Because you ARE it, you are living it, feeling it, at every second.

What the heck is Universal Flow?

So, you ask what the heck is Universal Flow? You talk about it all the time and it’s one of the classes you teach. The answer boys and girls is, it’s the energetic flow of life all around you, and within you. This includes all of nature, emotions, feelings, people, and even places. You can tap into it, go with the flow, get a read on different situations and act accordingly. Much like surfing, there will be ups and downs in the flow, but you can learn to ride these waves.

It’s a place of feeling, sensing or knowing. Have you ever walked into a room and, without anyone saying a word, you can feel there is tension as thick as pea soup? That’s you sensing the Universal Flow in one particular flavor. Tension, which is fear based. Everyone in the room contributes to this in one form or another. They may be creating the tension by stirring the pot or confronting someone. Or they may be bystanders affected by witnessing the events unfolding.

The Law of Attraction

I’m not sure who started this line of thinking, or coined that term, but if you are not familiar with it, there is a lot of reading you can do online. Mike Dooley is great at speaking on the topic. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is another good source. Neither of these people invented this law, or this idea, but they do explain it well. You can probably search YouTube as well with some success. In fact many hundreds of authors, books, and websites are devoted to explaining this universal law. Do your research but have fun and use your intuition. A great piece of advice is only accept the information that resonates with you.

In a nutshell the Law of Attraction:

  • Tell the Universe what you want.
  • Imagine the goal as finished with all the bells and whistles, with you in the middle jumping up and down, happy, smiling, thrilled with the outcome.
  • Let go of ‘how’ things will manifest. Allow for the Universe to help you to your goal in ways you may not have expected. After all, Spirit may have more creative ideas that you may never have dreamed of, in reaching your goal.
  • Every single day take baby steps to get to your goal
  • Express genuine gratitude each day
  • Keep a good attitude about the process and what you are manifesting. Remember thoughts become things.

It is a way many people manifest what they want in their life using the matrix of Universal energy. It’s part of co-creating the life you want. Try it out and have fun with it.

Divine Right Timing

Or thought of another way, you can’t do anything wrong. I learned this saying, this idea, when I was at an evening talk in Albuquerque some years back. It stuck with me and rang true. The idea is, there is no such thing as a coincidence. It’s meant to be. Everything happens at the right time, even if it seems to you that things are going wrong, or you are running late. I’ve heard this many times, and through experience I have come to trust and believe in it.

Remember this especially when you feel you made mistakes, or are running late, or even can’t make a date you said you could. All things from Spirit come with Divine Right Timing. Always. This is a sort of get out of jail free card in terms of worry. Stop worrying if your late arrival somewhere, or you lack of being able to do such and such is a terrible tragedy or is in some way wrong. It isn’t. Stop worrying. Spirit has your back. You did nothing wrong.

If you still feel bad about being late, or missing a connection of some sort, or not achieving a personal goal by a certain age, time, etc. realize that there is a divine plan, and you are part of it. You just can’t see the whole picture. If you are worried about something not happening at the right time, or are not sure what to ask for, always add the phrase, …with divine right timing. Then let go and be patient.

 

Expect the unexpected

In retrospect the way I handled the delays of my trip back home could have been different had I remained open. I mean totally open to change and delay, not just open to things flowing smoothly. In using the Law of Attraction, being upbeat, imagining a good trip, and being in gratitude do count a lot toward having a great trip. But also being open and flexible in the face of unavoidable delays was something I had forgotten to take into account. I call it going with the Flow (Universal Flow). I usually prepare by imagining and expecting a great trip, all going smoothly. But I should have totally relaxed and been open to any changes that didn’t go with my idea of the timeline for a good day of traveling.

My failure to trust in what was unfolding points to me being more inflexible than I’d like to admit, and wanting to have things my way. Learning to understand, recognize the tug of Universal Flow and work with it, not against it, is an art. It’s the part of co-creating and living a good life that might seem at times inconvenient, irritating and unexpected. By being totally open to all forms of change or delay, that would have made for a happier me, an easier flow. I also believe in Divine Right Timing, or everything happens for a reason. Trust that Spirit has your back. I apparently forgot that, but will do better in the future. That’s all you can do when you flub, is take note and vow to do better.
