Q&A: The Role of Truth in Deliberate Creation
We create the truth (aka reality) via our conscious attention. Meaning, whatever we focus on comes to life.
We also know that as we pay attention to what already is, we get more of the same.
Which is why we’re cautioned not to focus on something we don’t want, even if it’s “true.”
Makes good sense considering the power of our attention, and I’ve practiced this myself with great success.
Like when I refused to see “no clients” on my schedule and instead insisted I was a brilliant coach in high demand. (I sounded nuts but it worked!)
However, are there times when refusing to acknowledge the truth can be detrimental?
And savvy creators seek to know the difference.
Example: if the kid falls out of the tree and sprains something, even though it’s not what we want, acknowledging the reality of the injury and visiting the doctor may be a good idea.
Sometimes we manifesters resist the reality of life. Ignoring the “truth” in those situations may impede our manifesting progress. (Since what we resist, persists.)
And what about flat out “lies”?
Indeed, is there any such thing when we know that speaking is what makes it so? Maybe a “lie” is just a truth that hasn’t manifested yet.
(That’s why I had to stop calling in sick to work when I wasn’t. Within an hour or so of reporting in sick, my throat started getting scratchy or my stomach queasy. Had to start saying instead “I’m taking a mental health day.”)
This is a topic I’d like to hear from you all on.
What is the role of “truth” in your manifesting process?
I was thinking maybe it’s that the truth of our feelings are never to be ignored; but certain situations or circumstances are okay to.
Like pretending I’m fine when I’m not … I rarely get back to feeling fine with that approach. It works better for me when I own that I’m in a bad mood, in which case I get over it no time.
And maybe it’s perfectly appropriate to ignore the clock that tells me I’m out of time … maybe that’s a “truth” worth skipping when my intention is to have plenty of it.
Or maybe it’s that when we have resistance to the current reality, that resistance needs cleaning up before anything can shift. So that’s an instance when ignoring what’s so doesn’t serve.
Thanks in advance for the clarity developed here as you share your thoughts and experiences!
