Stop Focusing On Your Challenges
In other words, when you focus upon the problems of others, you diminish your ability to help them. People believe that you’ve got to focus upon the problem in order to find a solution. And we say, no solution ever comes forth – it’s never inspired; you never recognize it, and you are never able to facilitate or achieve it – from your place of focusing on the problem. They are two entirely different vibrations. If you have someone who has many things going wrong and one thing going right, beat the drum of what’s going right, and let that be your point of attraction. If you focus upon their problems, you achieve vibrational harmony with something other than the Source that gives you solution.

I have one challenge with the quote above. There is a negative word that I have removed from my lexicon. Can you identify it? If you know ANYTHING at all about me and if you’ve been following my blog for even a short time, the word should pop.
I haven’t given this quote, this notion any thought. What I have given thought to is the opposite, what Abraham says here:
People believe that you’ve got to focus upon the problem in order to find a solution.
Weird how we all get conditioned at an early age to believe a certain way. Now, however, as I’ve grown spiritually and emotionally I understand this to be true. I know there are people in the world who think:
Holy ______ (you fill in the blank.) This can’t be true. The ONLY way to resolve a problem IS to focus on it.
I used to believe that too. But no longer. You don’t need any more negative energy in your life then you already have.
–Why is it that you when you’re surrounded by negative people you decide to move away from them?
It’s because on SOME level you understand this is true. Why else would you understand that you have to remove negativity from your life by removing the negative people from your life? Now if you can extrapolate this message to other aspects of your life, wouldn’t it make sense that this can also be true of EVERY other part of your life?
I know! I know! You’re still thinking this is all new age mumbo jumbo. Ya know what though? This new age stuff is now in the mainstream. As I’ve said here multiple times, go into any bookstore and you’ll see whole sections devoted to Law of Attraction. Watch television. Go to the movies and you’ll see and hear lines of dialog that relate to Law of Attraction. Listen to music and you’ll here it. Go to the search box and type:
Two and Half Men
Melissa Etheridge into the search box in my blog and you’ll see some examples of this.
You CANNOT focus on the challenge for long without it entering your ENTIRE being, your ENTIRE soul. Why do you think that many times, when you stop focusing on what’s troubling you, that the answer arrives? It’s because all the effort is on fixing the challenge when you should be focusing elswhere.
Think about it. I bet you’ll understand this. I bet you’ve had the same experience. Haven’t you? The challenge becomes recognizing this is the solution and remembering to do so again the next time. Can do that? Remember:
…No solution ever comes forth – it’s never inspired; you never recognize it, and you are never able to facilitate or achieve it – from your place of focusing on the problem. They are two entirely different vibrations.
Be Happy! Be Positive! Be Well!
Blessings to you.
