Behold the Power of the (Jerk) Mantra
“Oh my word, what a jerk!!”
“I cannot believe what a Jerk he is!”
These are not the sort of thoughts I am proud to have invested in.
And yet, there I was flowing them with full force and emotion for weeks on end. (Toward someone that I love, even!)
It wasn’t until I had thought it for approximately the 820th time (I was going to guess 200, but I think negative thoughts might be like calories – we tend to underestimate just how many there really are) –
– before it dawned on me just how familiar this “what a jerk” thought had become.
I mean, I knew this thought inside and out. (In LOA world, we call that “acclimation.”)
This thought and I had become intimate friends. I had spent much time with it, turning it around this way and that; looking at its jerkiness from every angle, telling everyone who would listen all about it, feeling the emotion of it over and over until it found a permanent place in my frequency field of a heart.
And that’s how I created a near and dear family member to be a jerk.
This was not conscious creation – but that doesn’t make it any less powerful.
I know from all the facebook posts railing against Monsanto, Rush Limbaugh, the computer shooting father, etc. that I am not alone in activating this thought.
Obviously we can do better. We can use our creative power for good.
But if you ever wondered why your “I am healthy, wealthy and happy” type affirmations don’t seem to work as well, consider whether you invested in them as well as I did with my jerk mantra. I was committed, it was frequent, and I was emotional with those thoughts.
Universe can’t ignore that stuff for long. It gets moved to the top of the Big U’s list when it gets that much energy and attention from us.
(I really didn’t mean to work my jerk mantra so well.)
There’s solace for me in two things:
- If I helped co-create him as a big jerk, I can co-create him as a compassionate, loving, understanding, open person.
- and if I created a fabulous guy as a big jerk, I can work other miracles, too!
Which makes me super excited to choose a new thought to invest in starting today. What will it be?! Maybe …
or perhaps …
I cannot believe how much love there is my world. Everywhere I turn, there’s MORE LOVE! It’s amazing how much love is flowing to me and through me – can you believe this?! It is so cool to be me! It just gets better and better!
this might be fun, too:
How about you?
What thoughts have you been investing in lately? Are you doing it consciously, or just letting like attract like until you manifest something you don’t even want?
My note to self: leave the jerk mantra for others to play with, and engage something much more rewarding.
When we do that, there’s no doubt this spring season is going to rock!
