How much are my thoughts blocking, or allowing, the Eternal Stream of Well-Being that is emitted by the Universe? What should I think, or not think?
KEYWORDS: beliefs, better health, emotions, feelings, healing, law of attraction, philosophy, physical body, psychology, thoughts, well-being.
In order to really master the Law of Attraction, one has to be able to “control” or “steer” one’s thoughts, just like the driver of a car does.
Why do we need to steer our thoughts? Well, if we don’t learn that steering art, we will not let through enough well-being energy to keep us healthy, happy, and successful.
So this article is about how to get that point across in a visual way. For that purpose I am introducing my “Thought Balloon” scenarios below.
This might help your understanding of the issue, and what’s at stake. And it is especially relevant if you are one of those who are eager to improve your physical health with the Law of Attraction.
PART 1: THOUGHT BALLOONS
Thought balloons (or thought bubbles) is a well-known thing for those of you who are into comics. Together with speech balloons, they communicate the thoughts and words (and feelings) of the characters involved.
The novelty in this article is therefore not the design element of thought balloons. That is old news.
However, what is new, I believe, is the way I am using the thought balloons. For I do not simply use them as a communication tool to display the thoughts of a particular person.
Rather, I am also using them to show the effect that those thoughts have on the person who is thinking them.
And by “the effect” I here mean the effect that the Law of Attraction has on such a person.
The Reverse Umbrella Effect
In this article, I will be thinking about the thought balloons as a type of “umbrella”.
But whereas the shade from an umbrella is a desired thing, the shade from a thought balloon is NOT a desired thing. So it’s a “Reverse Umbrella Effect”, we could say.
For my idea is this: Depending on the quality of your thoughts and the intensity of your thoughts, your thoughts (i.e., your thought balloons) actively shade the incoming creative energy from the Universe.
So in contrast to the umbrella example, we want our thoughts (thought balloons) to shade the incoming well-being energy as little as ever possible.
The simple rule then is this: If you can keep your vibration (thoughts) with as much genuine positivity as possible, then you will block the incoming creative energy less. And in this case, you will have a good life, with health, love, and happiness.
But if you cannot (for whatever reason) keep your vibration on the positive side of the NP spectrum, then you will start blocking the incoming creative energy much more. And this, of course, results in lesser quality of life, diseases, and unhappiness.
Now let us look at two examples, so that we can get a visual idea of what these thought balloons are all about.
PART 2: HOW MUCH WELL-BEING GETS THROUGH?
The following presentation of the two situations is meant to give you a visual impression of what is actually going on in relation to our thoughts and to the way that the Law of Attraction works.
The Two Men
In the examples below we have two men. One man is reasonably happy, and his emotional state is approximately P1 (“weak positivity”).
The other man is an angry man, and his emotional state is approximately N2 (“medium negativity”).
The relative position of these two persons on the NP scale (negativity-positivity spectrum) is this:
So the main question might be formulated in two ways: How much well-being does each of these men’s thought balloons let through?
Or we can ask the question: How much well-being does each of these men’s thought balloons block?
In the first question we are asking about how transparent the thought balloon is, which then indicates how “allowing” the person’s thoughts are.
In the second question we are asking about how opaque the thought balloon is, which then indicates how much “resistance” the person thoughts produce.
So here are the “equivalents” or “synonyms”:
- transparency = allowing
- opacity = resistance
The arithmetic, in percentages, is this:
- transparency + opacity = 100%
- allowing + resistance = 100%
So now let’s look at the two examples.
The Hopeful Man
In Situation A we have a man whose emotional status is at P1 (“weakly positive”). This is a hopeful man who is reasonably happy, having some rudimentary optimism about the future:
The shadow cast by the hopeful man’s “thought balloon” is quite light, in virtue of his relatively positive attitude.
However, because he is situated at the lowest level of positivity (P1), the transparency (i.e. the allowing) is still not huge, compared to the opacity (i.e. the resistance).
In this example we therefore can see that he allows in 58% of the well-being energy that flows to him, but he still blocks out 42%. [notes 1 and 2]
In other words, there certainly is more allowing than resisting going on. But there is still a lot of energy being blocked out that otherwise could have improved all areas of his life.
So if he were to progress to P2 (“medium positive”), he would allow 74% of the energy into his system, and only blocking out 26%. And if he were to reach P3 (“strongly positive”), he would allow 90% of the energy, and only blocking out 10% of it.
The Angry Man
In Situation B we have a man whose emotional status is at N2 (“medium negative”). This is an angry man who is not very happy. There is typically envy and blame in the air, and there is little hope on the horizon. Such a person is typically a strong candidate for getting a “serious” disease:
The shadow cast by the angry man’s “thought balloon” is relatively dark, in virtue of his quite negative attitude.
Because he is situated at the medium level of negativity (N2) in the negativity-positivity spectrum, the opacity (i.e. the resistance) is greater than the transparency (i.e. the allowing).
In this example we can see that he resists as much as 74% of the well-being energy that flows in, and only allows in 26% of it. So he blocks out most of the energy that otherwise would have served him very well.
If he were to move upwards on the emotional scale, he might be able to take himself to N1 (“weakly negative”), where his resistance would have fallen to 58%, and his allowing would have increased to 42%.
However, getting out of N2 might not be so easy. But it is certainly possible. Every inch closer to N1 would be very good for such a man.
Our thoughts really matter. We can feel it in our bones: “My opinion is important!”
Our opinions, thoughts, and beliefs are, of course, important because they reflect “who we are” to other people, and to ourselves. So they give us some kind of “identity” or “character”.
But there is a more significant reason (that most people are not aware of) why our thoughts are important: it is because thoughts actually create our reality around us.
So our “thought balloons” and their degree of “shading” the incoming well-being energy from the universe really illustrate my point: In order to let that well-being energy revitalize us and regenerate us, and deliver everything we have desired, we actually have to let it in.
We cannot accept, as students of the Law of Attraction, that our thoughts become negatively charged. For that’s when that well-being energy becomes blocked.
The only way to allow that positive life-giving energy into our daily experience is to start thinking more positive thoughts, and start feeling better.
Health, wealth, romance, and happiness cannot enter into our world without our thoughts and emotions being on the positive side of the negativity-positivity spectrum. So let’s become more positive, to feel better!
- It may be obvious to most readers, but I will state it explicitly just in case: All numbers that express “allowing” and “resistance” and “transparency” and “opacity” are loose estimations. The important thing is not to pinpoint an exact number for these categories, but to understand the overall idea of these examples: more positive thoughts create more well-being, more negative thoughts create less well-being. It is the quality of our thoughts that decide whether we allow the Universe’s healing energy to enter into our system, or not.
- The transparency and opacity effects in the illustrations do not match exactly the numbers expressed in the percentages. So, for example, in the illustration of the hopeful man (Fig 2), the transparency of the gray shadow should be 58%. But I have made that gray shadow more transparent than that, just to illustrate the relative effect, compared to the angry man (Fig 3).
