How to gracefully navigate contrast is one of the most common questions people bring up with The Council. And this is for good reason. Because with this single piece of understanding, you access the power to exponentially expand your happiness levels. As a jumping-off point into this important conversation, please consider the recent quote offered by spiritual guides Abraham-Hicks:
“Desirer’s remorse is having a desire but not maintaining the vibrational frequency of it. You are letting the reality that you are observing control your vibrational atmosphere, and therefore you are not staying up to speed with your own desire. Your desire isn’t wrong. You didn’t make a mistake. You just didn’t stay up to speed with your desire.”
As this Abraham-Hicks quote suggests, desire is one of the most powerful creative forces in the universe. Your wanting summons life force itself, and magnetizes the energy that creates worlds to you and through you.
But what most don’t yet understand is that the moment a desire is born within us, three things happen simultaneously:
- First, we are able to see and feel with laser-sharp clarity exactly what it is we want.
- Second, our desire mobilizes and magnetizes to us the exact resources we need to bring it to fruition.
- And third, desire heightens our awareness that what we’re asking for is not yet a part of our experience.
This means that once we experience the contrast of having manifested something unwanted, we have just one, vitally important task: To bring our personal vibration up to speed with the expanded reality that we’ve asked for.
Here are 3 energy mastery steps to activate the wisdom of the Abraham-Hicks quote referenced above.
By applying these 3 steps, your perspective of any situation will transform from, “Why is this happening to me?” to “Thank God this is happening for me!”
Step #1: Give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you’re feeling.
We live in a universe that is based on attraction. And this means the energies of resistance and refusal only serve to bring to us more of what we don’t want.
When an unwanted situation presents itself, it does no good to pretend to feel okay about it if you feel bad. If you doubt this, just think back to a time when you tried not to feel sad, angry, or afraid. What you’ll quickly realize is that resisting what is simply doesn’t work. The Abraham-Hicks quote points out that contrast arises when we are not up to speed with our own desire. And our resistance is the only thing keeping us from vibrating in harmony, rather than in discord.
So, what can you do the next time you find yourself resisting or feeling bad about something that’s happening in your experience? Simply take a quiet moment to connect with the emotion that’s present within you. Close your eyes, take some long, slow deep breaths, and do your best to welcome whatever is happening without judgment.
Continue to breathe into the feeling, and notice that it’s simply energy that hasn’t been given permission to flow. And as you gently hold your awareness on the sensation, you’ll notice that this energy is not solid or fixed. All energies exist in a constant state of flux.
As you grant your feelings permission to exist and embrace rather than resist them, they begin to dissipate and release. Remember that energy is never created or destroyed, it simply changes form. Your allowing is what enables your resistance to release and your vibration to rise.
Step #2: Consciously bring in the energy of compassion.
Self-compassion is an essential step in creating any type of shift in energy and perspective. And this means letting go of any self-judgment when our experience falls short of our desires.
Judgment is a defensive stance that deflects the very happiness you’re seeking. But when you offer loving kindness toward yourself and others, you’re in a much better position to receive.
Do your best to view your life experiences through the eyes of compassion. Nothing went wrong — it was all part of your journey as a human. After all, you could never experience pleasure if you had never known pain. You wouldn’t value security had you not experienced feeling insecure.
Every experience contributes in some important way to your expansion, and to you becoming the person you most want to be. In living something unwanted, you have given birth to a powerful desire for what you do want.
Step #3: Deliberately bring in the energy that you now desire to reside in.
As this Abraham-Hicks quote points out, contrast is one of the most powerful forces in all the universe. This is because the contrast of having lived something unwanted is where clarity about what you do want is born. So, once life has shown you what you don’t want, turn your full attention toward what it is you desire.
What new awareness, understanding, or appreciation do you now possess as a direct result of living this contrast? What do you now desire to create? Simply allow more of your attention to be focused more on the new desire than on the incident that gave birth to it. This is the secret to utilizing contrast in the way it was intended: as a jumping-off point toward whatever we wish to create next and to draw that experience into our lives from the inside out.
