Love Your Life #075:  It’s time to disregard how things are

What-is & Wanted vs. Unwanted: what-is

Welcome to Love Your Life + Law of Attraction.

Today we’re going to talk about taking your attention off what-is if the “reality” around you isn’t what you want.

Do you spend a lot of time thinking and talking about what-is?

Well, stay tuned because this episode may have you looking at what-is in a whole new light.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn…

  • The bad advice I once gave clients about taking stock of what-is
  • The consequence of focusing on unpaid bills or a job you don’t like
  • What Abraham says about regurgitating the story of what-is
  • The life-changing distinction that helped me stop focusing on so-called facts
  • How making the best of what-is changes your future
  • Why discussing facts and facing reality are often the pathway to mis-creating
  • What happens when you withdraw your attention from things that are not pleasing
  • How to keep it simple when it comes to focusing on positive aspects


“What-is has no bearing on what is coming unless you are continually regurgitating the story of what-is. By thinking and speaking more of how you really want your life to be, you allow what you are currently living to be the jumping-off place for so much more. But if you speak predominantly of what-is, then you still jump off—but you jump off into more of the same.” —Money, and the Law of Attraction

“You are a creator: You create with your every thought. You often create by default. For you are getting what you are giving your attention to wanted or unwanted. But you know by how it feels if what you are getting (creating) is what you are wanting or if it is not what you are wanting. Where is your attention focused?” —Abraham

“Vibrations don’t stay active without your attention to them.” —Abraham

“Sometimes you justify giving your attention to something because it is true. But, just because it is true is not a good reason, because anything that anyone gives attention to becomes true. A better question is, ‘Do I want to experience it?’” —Abraham

“Make the best of it. When you make the best of whatever you’re focused upon, your future will be better than your now. If each moment you’re making the best of what-is, no matter what it is, you make the best of it; make the best of it; make the best of it—your future just gets better and better and better and better.” —Abraham

“Many people protest when we explain to them the power of telling the story of their finances as they want it to be rather than as it is, because they believe that they should be factual about what is happening. But if you continue to look at lackful what-is and speak of what-is, you will not find the improvement that you desire. If you want to effect substantial change in your life experience, you must think thoughts that feel different as you think them.” —Money, and the Law of Attraction

“Abraham, what is it about this life that erodes us?’ And we say: Your attention to what-is.” —Abraham

“Give your attention to what makes you feel good, thereby releasing your attention from what makes you feel bad.” —Abraham

“When you withdraw your attention from those things that are not pleasing, and you put your attention upon those things that are pleasing, those pleasing things begin to become more abundant; and those not-pleasing things become more rare. Until, eventually, those not-pleasing things cannot be part of your experience because you will have eliminated your attraction factor from your vibration…What you think and what you get always matches.” —Abraham

“The ability to imagine what you are wanting, rather than only observing what-is, is what takes you beyond.” —Abraham

“Give no attention at all to what you do not want!” —Abraham

“When you no longer split your energy flow with contradictory thoughts, you will know your power.” —Abraham

“Never mind what-is. Imagine it the way you want it to be so that your vibration is a match to your desire. When your vibration is a match to your desire, all things in your experience will gravitate to meet that match every time.” —Abraham

Do you know how to get in the Vortex?

OK, let’s start with: What on earth is the Vortex? This is an Abraham term. And I’ll admit, in the beginning of my obsession with Law of Attraction, I had a very fuzzy understanding of what the Vortex is—and I didn’t much care for the term. It sounded flaky and just didn’t resonate. Of course, […]
