13 July 2012  There was an article last week on the internet entitled, When life hands you lemons: the new science of positive thinking, which discussed the relationship of positive thinking and happiness. It also discussed the creation of a new psychology association and implied that this was a revolutionary and new approach to living since science was discovering that money doesn’t buy happiness.

Is this really a new way of looking at things? I have been involved in the field of positive thinking for more than twenty years. I have studied various techniques and researched a variety of spiritual disciplines. Money not buying happiness is not a new thought process and neither is the power of positive thinking. There has been quite a vast body of work written about how someone’s thoughts create their reality. Most of this research has not been done by academics.

Now, however, we have a new association who have coined the term positive psychology and have basically said the old way of rehashing the past is not going to show us the way to flourish as human beings. It is nice to know the discipline of psychology is now recognizing what many of us in the alternative energy/spiritual disciplines have been known for some time. The problem is, will this new branch of psychology recognize the underlying principle of positive thinking?

I have coached quite a few people over the years through a variety of life events. I have listened to a variety of stories in my time: I just lost my job or a loved one. I am in a bad job, career, or marriage. The company is going through change and I am in a state of turmoil and confusion. 

Often when I am coaching people about career, relationships, healing, grief and handling change, I always interject with: “What is it that you do want in your life? What do you want your life to be like?”

People react in a variety of ways. Some are completely stunned. Identify what it is I want?  This is what the problem is, they say to me. This is what is going on. I don’t have time to think about what it is that I do want in my life. My response to them is usually, “if you don’t have time to focus on what you want then you are going to keep getting what you don’t want. It is law.”

At this point, you are probably wondering what law I am talking about. Simply put it is the Law of Vibration that states that everything in this Universe vibrates at a certain frequency, and these frequencies set up a resonance that matches that frequency. Science states that everything in the manifested universe is composed of packets of energy vibrating at certain frequencies. Science has also stated that energy can be changed but it cannot be destroyed. Science has also proven there is no such thing as death.  Everything is just a form change.

The Law of Vibration is the foundational basis of all Universal Laws that supersedes mankind’s law.  It is through your thoughts, feelings and actions that you send out your vibrations into the Universe in which they are matched to like frequencies. Through the Law of Attraction, what you put out always comes back to you.

Everything in this universe operates on a vibrational frequency. Radiate positive emotions and you operate within a higher vibratory rate.  This higher frequency attracts the positive to you.  On the other hand, radiate negative emotions such as fear and you decrease your vibratory rate.  The lower frequency attracts negative experiences to you, which, when you are angry, attract a whole slew of angry people to you.

When working on changing your life, it is essential for you to be continually aware of what you think, feel and do.  You cannot just work on your thinking one day, and forget about it the next. Manifesting your desires requires you to be continually aware of everything you think, feel and do, as this is how the Universe receives your requests and delivers your desired outcomes.

You must even be careful with the comments you make in jest. Make them enough times, and before long you set up a vibrational alignment in which your joke becomes your outcome. There are no cosmic jokes. Words are words and feelings are feelings.  The Universe merely gives what you have identified.  Equally important is not allowing the opinions and criticisms of others to influence your vibration. Surround yourself with doubters, and their doubting vibration will pull your vibrational frequency down. Without a match, you cannot attract. Do not let others kill your dreams.

Prior to implementing visualizations and affirmations, it is imperative to find out what beliefs have been running your life.  It is these beliefs that have created your dominant vibrational frequency, and it is this frequency that needs to be congruent with whatever it is that you are trying to manifest in your life. If it is not congruent, your visualizations and affirmations are useless. Your dominant beliefs or vibrational frequency will over-ride what it is that you are trying to attract.

This is the very reason that people become frustrated working with the Universal Laws and give up on the whole positive thinking concept. It is not the affirmations and visualizations that are not working. It is your underlying belief that is undermining the process.

To change your life you need to change the underlying belief because it holds the vibrations which you are sending out.  For instance, for years you have been continually telling yourself that you are worthless and good for nothing. One day you decide you are going to change this and you suddenly start telling yourself that you are worthy and good.  On the surface you hear yourself reciting these wonderful affirmations about your worth, but deep down inside there is still a voice saying, ‘you can’t do anything right. Worthless! Worthless!’  That little voice is your dominant vibrational frequency and it is over-riding any attempt you are trying to make to change your life.

In order to be successful at manifestation work you have to work on getting rid of the old beliefs before you can really get the new ones to work for you.  I hope that the positive psychology group will take into account the need to understand vibrations before they attempt to get people to change their thinking.
