What-is & Wanted vs. Unwanted: wrong end of the stick

Welcome to Love Your Life + Law of Attraction.

Today we’re going to talk about whether you are bringing too much of the past or too much of the future into the now.

In other words, this episode is about whether you’re treating the present moment like a dress rehearsal for your life.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn…

  • What you are attracting with your present-thought vibration
  • What happens when you spend a lot of time in the past—rehashing, regurgitating, regretting, and reliving
  • A new way to think about your regrets, hurts, disappointments, and upsets
  • How I used to get in my own way with my penchant for making lists and setting goals
  • Classic symptoms of Someday Syndrome and how it gets in the way of what you want manifesting
  • How the meaning behind Life is not a dress rehearsal has fundamentally changed for me


Quotables

“Law of Attraction is responding to your present-thought vibration, regardless of whether you are thinking about the past, future or something happening now.” —The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham

“The Universe does not know if the vibration you are offering is because of what you are imagining, or because of what you are observing. In either case, it is responding.” —Abraham

“If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.” —The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“My future isn’t about my past. Life is only about NOW. Nothing that has ever happened has anything to do with now unless, in my now, I continue to think and speak about it. Fresh new thoughts today will always give me a fresh new experience.” —Abraham

“The content of your vibration equals how you feel right now. And whether you’re thinking about the past, the present, or the future, how you feel right now—as you think about the past, the present, or the future—is your life. And it’s a precious, fabulous, creative life that you are not wanting to squander in a place of resistance. Your life is right now.” —Abraham

“Present-moment living, getting in touch with your now, is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives.” —Wayne Dyer

“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.” —The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“The reason you want every single thing that you want, is because you think you will feel really good when you get there. But, if you don’t feel really good on your way to there, you can’t get there. You have to be satisfied with what-is while you’re reaching for more.” —Abraham

“The point of power is always in the present moment.” —Louise Hay

“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry—all forms of fear—are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.” —Eckhart Tolle

“The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.” —Abraham Maslow

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” —The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“You want to appreciate your past and you want to look forward to your future but mostly you want to savor your now.” —Abraham

“Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.” —Wayne Dyer
