…and the Velcro of Creative Thought
The Attractive Power of Creative Thought
You are a Vibrational Being living in a Vibrational Universe. As you give your attention to something: an idea, a memory, a situation you are observing, a dream or fantasy that you are visualizing… you are actually activating vibration. And as your focus causes that activation, that vibrational content now becomes your point of attraction. Whenever you think about anything its vibrational content becomes an active part of your vibrational essence – and the subject of your attention begins to move towards you. Consciously realize that thinking about something is inviting the essence of that something into your experience.
Knowledge of the vibrational nature of your Universe is both comforting and exhilarating: comforting in the sense that you know that you have nothing to fear because nothing can come to you without your invitation of it, and exhilarating in the sense that you know you can draw anything that you desire close to you. When you realize that you are the vibrational attractor of all things that come to you, your world opens. There is no need to limit your experience in a guarded or protective stance, for no unwanted thing can force itself into your experience. You are the creator of your own experience, and no one else has power within your experience.
The Universal Law of Attraction
In the same way that the law of gravity consistently responds to the physical matter of the planet, the Law of Attraction consistently responds to all vibrations. Every projection of thought, whether you are focused on the past, present, or future, is vibration and has attraction power. This powerful, consistent Law of Attraction (that which is like unto itself is drawn) offers consistent results in response to the vibrations that you offer. There are no arbitrary inconsistent responses that would make the Law of Attraction impossible to understand. It is consistent; it is fair; it is always responsive; it is powerful – it is a Deliberate Creator’s best friend. Your awareness of the powerful consistency of the Law of Attraction and your understanding of how it works coupled with the conscious utilization of your Emotional Guidance System* – put you in the powerful position of creating joy in your life.
Choosing your objects of attention deliberately, and refining the specifics of your focus by using your Emotional Guidance System renders you a powerful Deliberate Creator who is fulfilling your intention for this physical life experience.
Rockets of Desire
Although you may know others who seem to be having similar experiences, you are living a unique life experience. As you move about your world interacting with the components of your time-space reality, experiencing the variety and contrast that surrounds you, you automatically and constantly clarify personal preferences. And as you stand in your unique Leading-Edge perspective, Rockets of Desire erupt within you and cause vibrational signals to emanate from you. And as those vibrations, through the Law of Attraction, summon vibrational matches unto themselves, everything that you are – and everything that your Inner Being or Source is – experiences the expansion of that summoning.
From a state of balanced energy (aligning your physical self with your non-physical self) clarity will emerge.
You get what you think about, but more specifically – you get what you feel about what you think about.
What has already materialized into your experience: you call it reality, fact, evidence, proof, history is only what has already happened. These are not the NOW.
Focus on the sensation of creating your own reality rather than giving so much attention to the reality that you have created.
Contrast produces desire, and all desire is answered.
*So if this is correct, then anyone who desires anything should be the swift receiver of that desire. However, when you launch a desire with equally strong feelings about whether or not that desire will manifest (whether you deserve it, whether it is realistic…) then the exact balance of energy you are projecting will boomerang towards you. If you project contrast, this is what you will receive.
*Scale of Emotions, Revamped
(I played with this for awhile and reformulated a more accurate list of which emotions can relieve which)
9. Overwhelmed Sensation
10. Dead Inside
15. Blocked Sensation
16. Conflicting Desire/Confusion

How to Get What You Really Want
“If a seed is given good soil and plenty of water and sun, it doesn’t have to try to unfold. It doesn’t need self-confidence or self-discipline or perseverance. It just unfolds. As a matter of fact, if can’t help unfolding. If a seed has to grow with a rock on top of it, or in deep shade, or without enough water, it won’t unfold into a healthy full-sized plant. It will try – hard – because the drive to become what you are meant to be is incredibly powerful. But at best it will become a sort of ghost of what it could be: pale, undersized, drooping.
In a way, that’s what most of us are.”
It’s not just your immediate family and friends that affect this stunted growth. Or even your school atmosphere. It’s a large scale smothering based on capitalism – that unless our special traits are lucrative, they are not worth investing time into. Competition, in its very essence, negates our own individuality to an idealism of always placing one at the top as “the best”. This is not the case, but something necessary to acknowledge if we wish to realize our full magical potential.
Wishcraft, written in 1979, is surprisingly pertinent, despite a few comical cultural advancements. The book suggests taking notice of one’s personal style for the first time. Well into the 2000s, we are obsessed with personal style as a self-determinant. The book also mentions women being the pillar of men’s success, trained to be unselfish. This pattern still exists in our society, but at the same time the problem is now just as imbalanced on the other side: men no longer knowing their place in women’s lives. The book also delightfully mentions going to one’s typewriter, but other than this, it offers a lot of helpful “real daydreaming” exercises, which is a branch of the Law of Attraction – visualization as the path to actualization.
Follow Your Bliss
“When you find yourself engulfed in circumstances that cause you to offer a vibration that is far from that of bliss, then reaching for bliss is an impossible thing, for the Law of Attraction does not allow you to make the vibrational jump anymore than you could have tuned your radio receiver to 101 FM and heard a song that was being playing on 630 AM.”
- Ask and It Is Given
This newer 2004 book discusses what to do with our pale, drooping selves in order to attain that higher vibration, which can only be received by us if we first tune ourselves to the proper reception. And so when we are at a low vibration, what we are seeking slight relief from the pressure of the negativity we are experiencing. The book presents the idea of a scale of emotions as an indicator of which emotion you can progress to in order to climb the scale, which explains why it actually feels good to get angry at certain points. Which explains why I enjoyed those fantasies of kicking my ex in the face.
I suggest writing your own scale of emotions and using it as reference.
The key to this exercise would be trying out new thoughts and then doing an internal inventory of how these thoughts affect you.
For example: “I feel stuck in my life.”
A thought which may bring you up a vibrational level on the scale of emotions might be:
a) this is the chance to reassess which direction to step forward in, or
b) I am taking note of a stagnancy in my life and propelling myself in the direction of ______. Or,
c) what is the main event/situation/reality that is generating this “stuck” feeling and how can I overcome it?

Anyone out there online dating???
Top 10 Online Dating Don’ts:
1) No drama:
This makes you sound like a drama queen. It makes you sound like a victim who expects to be hurt, and insinuates that you believe that you yourself have never broken down or overreacted in the past. And let me guess, you probably have a schlew of crazy ex-gfs/bfs. No drama says: if there is something wrong, don’t bug me about it. If you have an emotion, keep it to yourself. Now, I know there are actual drama-causers who invent problems and make demands and throw tantrums… but a little passion and clarity of emotion is healthy.
2) Please live close:
I don’t want to drive an hour for dates. Oh. So you’d definitely cross the world for me then. The good apples are always at the bottom. Hey, grab one that’s already fallen off the tree. It’s just a little rotten, it’s still good.
3) I don’t know what I’m looking for…:
Then why are you messing with people’s hearts? One guy explains that he doesn’t want to alienate the girls who aren’t what he’s looking for. Um, have some dignity and filter. Reach inside yourself and find what you’re looking for, and then proclaim it. If you’re looking for nobody in particular, then no one in particular will show up.
Dare to dream.
4) I’m bored so I thought I’d give this a try…
If you’re bored, you’re boring.
There is nothing sexier than boring.
5) Pics of you + baby:
It’s great to see your nurturing side, but not in your profile pic (!) Here, date me and this baby. If the kid is yours throw it in, but not in your profile pic, and try not to say some version of: yeah, I have a kid – if that bothers you then fuck off! This does not show your devotion to your child, it shows that you will be entering into a relationship as a judgmental and hostile individual.
6) LeTigre pictures:
You know what I mean. Those shots of you looking longingly into the distance. Man up (ladies 2), clean up, and look straight at the lens. Show up with confidence. That’s confidence, not nudity. If you’ve got a hot bod, don’t use it in your profile pic. The word “overcompensation” should explain why. Make eye contact, stand squarely, and face the camera. And for those who think that it’s all about the picture, the picture just gets you in the door.
7) I’m a pretty laidback guy/girl:
About ninety percent of you claim to be this, but laidback people don’t advertise.
I’m laidback. This means: I’m apathetic, I don’t like to rock the boat, and I’m lazy. If you’re too laidback, you won’t have the stamina to show up for life as your hottest self.
8) Please don’t wear much make up:
Guys… most of you don’t know the wide world of make up and the relationship girls have with it. This is like women speaking on the subject of circumcision – it’s not your territory. Make up is a personal choice. It’s not about how much make up a girl is wearing, it’s about how she applies it. If you want a more Earthy girl, say this. Say you’re looking for a natural, low-maintenance girl (although accept that this might mean she won’t look like a supermodel). Girls who wear make up are just trying to present themselves in their best light and as someone’s mom once said: “they say they don’t like make up, until they see you without it.”
9) I’m kind of a big deal. I have many leather bound books…:
Intelligence translates naturally through your ideas and your writing and your eyes. There are so many types of intelligence that if you just get into the things that drive you, online daters will figure out for themselves what type of intelligent you are.
10) Bonus points if…:
Keeping a score card on your future date based on whether or not he/she knows some obscure fact only limits yourself. Do not make your guy/girl jump through hoops for you. The cute, overused: “bonus points if…” thing at the end of your profile reveals the nature with which you will be reading your replies. A better closing might be a reminder about which qualities you’re open to receiving in a future relationship.
And in closing: don’t hate the player-hater, hate the game.
