Vibration and the Power of Thought

Things of similar vibrations are attracted to each other.  Have you ever heard the expression, “Birds of a feather flock together?”  For better or worse, the people, things, and circumstances in our lives are in harmony with our personal vibration.  What exactly does that mean? 

Have you ever met a person that you connected with instantly?  Even knowing that you had never met them before, somehow you felt that you were talking to a long-lost friend? (My husband and I once bought a used dryer from a couple we had never met.  They were perhaps the friendliest people we’ve ever had such a short interaction with.  As we left their home, I asked my husband, “Did we just buy a dryer from our best friends?  I bet they would be really fun to get together with.” They had a very positive vibration.) On the other hand, have you ever had close association with someone who you just didn’t click with?  That doesn’t mean you didn’t like them, necessarily; you perhaps just didn’t share the same interests.  Even if you frequently spent time with them, you may not have had a close relationship.  This is an example of vibrations that are not in harmony with one another.  However, if you find that your relationship with such a person starts to become closer, then your vibrations are moving into greater harmony.  Conversely, if you find that you are lacking a certain desirable person or thing in your life, then there is something about your vibration that is out of harmony with what you desire.  A classic example is money.  If you want money to flow abundantly into your life, you must be in harmonious vibration with it (yes, even money vibrates). 

The fact that like vibrations are attracted to each other doesn’t mean that we always like the people, things, or circumstances which are in our lives.  It simply means that our vibrations are in harmony.  If we focus on things that we fear, we may notice that we see those very things in abundance.  Our focus on something that we fear puts us in a similar vibration to that thing and attracts it to us.  Sometimes we really hate the specific people, things, or circumstances in our lives. But the reality is that the more we focus on what it is that we hate, and the more energy we put into hating those things, the more those people, things, and circumstances are attracted into our lives.  BUT!  There is really good news about this: the people, things, and circumstances that we dislike can reveal to us what our personal vibration is, and we can change our vibration!  In fact, it is only when we change our vibration that those things we dislike are no longer attracted to us and move out of our lives.


How do we determine what our personal vibration is?  How can we know?  The vibration we are referring to here is the vibration of our thoughts and emotions.  The emotions we experience are the result of our thoughts.  Sometimes those thoughts are conscious—we are aware of what we are thinking.  But emotion happens so instantaneously.  We don’t experience a negative interaction with someone and think to ourselves, “I really didn’t like that.  I believe I am going to be offended over what she said!” and have our sense of offence occur after that thought.  The thoughts that I am referring to do not happen consciously, but subconsciously.  Visit the page "The Stickman Mind Model" for an explanation of how our subconscious minds affect the experiences of our lives.

Well, if You're Such a Genius...

Last weekend was my first official Genius Bootcamp--as a facilitator.  WOW!  I had forgotten how powerful this workshop is!  Not really--after all, that's why I wanted to teach it in the first place.  But it was amazing to watch each participant come to some really big realizations, discover direction, and put their trust in God to lead the way.  They all seemed so appreciative of me, but I was so appreciative of them.  I have wanted to teach this class for five years.  I got to the point where I figured it would never happen.  It turns out that I needed these last five years to give me the experience I would need to be an effective instructor.  I simply didn't have enough practice with the principles before hand, especially in terms of handling discouragement and grief.  The last five years have given me that!

Our fantastic group of Geniuses!

An Incredible Journey

I've recently started participating in Miracle Mornings, as described in the book The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.  It's been amazing!  Several years ago I developed a love for early mornings, and now I have a routine that transforms it from a lazy hour of solitude to a purposeful hour of rejuvenation and power.

But there is one part that I have struggled with, and that is visualizing.  Each morning, part of the routine is to be spent in visualization.  There are lots of ways to visualize.  But I've always struggled with seeing myself in real life situations that I haven't experienced yet.

Thankfully, my mind is a powerful tool, and I have discovered that it's really good at creating analogies. So while I might have a difficult time visualizing what my life will be like when I accomplish such-and-such, I can visualize a symbol of that accomplishment.  In fact, I was a little surprised to discover that I already HAD created such a visualization.  I have created a …

Who Is Influencing You?

We have really been going the rounds as a family.  Fighting, bickering, blaming, yelling, screaming, shouting (and that's just Mom!).  We've tried talking about the inappropriateness of the behavior, emphasizing positive qualities of our kids to their irritated siblings, and praying for guidance as to what to do.  We have made efforts to increase our family prayer and scripture study, relying on the promise that increasing our time in the scriptures would increase the Spirit in our home.  To be fair, those efforts have all but disappeared during the summer, but it was a serious concern for us even as we made diligent efforts.  The contention seemed to be ever-present, even when (even while!) we were regularly studying. But in talking to one of my daughters about this problem, I may have hit on an aspect of it that we haven't addressed before.

She was particularly upset with one of her sisters.  I asked her how she thought Heavenly Father felt about that sister.  What words…
