Spin It Like a Pro

This guest post from Lisa Hayes has a couple gems for conscious creators, including alignment inspiration from political strategists and the importance of resisting the seductive appeal of trashy thoughts.

Here’s Lisa:

Spin Your Story Like a ProI don’t really believe there are good thoughts and bad thoughts. That’s a little too moralistic for my taste.

I do however, know there are thoughts that feel good and thoughts that feel bad. My clue I’m in muddy water is when the thought starts with “WTF” or “Are you kidding me?”

To be honest, I secretly like thoughts that feel that way from time to time. They offer a hit of adrenaline. They make me feel a little superior to whatever I’m observing. However, that guilty indulgence never leads somewhere I really want to be.

I’ve been in the room with brilliant political strategists whose job it is to spin a story on a set of events most would consider scandalous or tragic. These people are professionals. They know how to stay in the boundaries of what’s mostly honest, while at the same time crafting a story that works. Or at least works better.

They know the news cycle is usually less than 72 hours long. So, if you can ride it out a couple days, almost everything passes.

Deliberate creators could learn a thing or two from political spin doctors. Nothing is so bad that you can’t spin it to your advantage if that’s your job, and it is your job. And why wouldn’t you? Why would you tell a story about anything that doesn’t play to your favor?

“If you knew how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”

― Peace Pilgrim

Most of us believe that’s true. This is LOA 101. I think a lot of us, myself included, get a little loosey goosey around the edges of this one. We get lazy. We get tired and let those thoughts run wild. Before you know it, you start believing those trashy thoughts because they’re very compelling or seductive. But it doesn’t matter how seductive they are. It’s the frustrations, irritation, and worries that get ya. They get rolling and gain momentum.

But thoughts aren’t facts. Hell, even facts aren’t always factual.

Lisa Marie HayesThoughts that don’t feel good lead to experiences that don’t feel good. It’s that simple, and I want experiences that feel good. I’m guessing you’d like to join me there.

  1. Great article, spinning your story into your favor when trying to create a new reality is not a bad idea at all. I am however a little uneasy with the idea that we should never have a thought that does not feel good in order to always feel good.

    For example there are many unpleasant things in life that sometimes need to be dealt with or thought about in order to some up with new ways of dealing with their issues. The difference is that if we don’t dwell upon them and give them undue attention then the solution feels good and we feel good in solving another challenge, but if we do dwell on them, which is what I think you mean, then they become our thoughts and what we concentrate on and the results never feel good.

    Is this what you mean?

      Glad that you brought that up, Dr. Ian. Yes, this isn’t to say we should never entertain a single negative thought. Feeling our feelings is essential to conscious creation, since repressing or denying them is just a form of resistance. And we know how that goes!

      But when we notice we’re in a pattern that isn’t serving us, being able to tell it differently is the skill I intended to spotlight with Lisa’s guest post here.

      Thanks for helping flesh that out further! 🙂

    Nothing is so bad that you can’t spin it to your advantage. Best sentence ever. Thanks all.
