My blog byline (if that’s the correct word) describes me as a “home-educating deliberate creator”. I use the words “deliberate creator” in the sense given by Abraham-Hicks in their body of work on the law of attraction. I believe I am the creator of everything I experience, both positive and negative, which I attract by my thoughts and feelings. Since I came to understand this I have been playing a game of gradually training my focus towards what I want and away from what I don’t want. I was born an optimist, which helps, but it’s amazing how much attention most of us (me included) give to unwanted conditions and situations. As children we are brought up to tell “the truth” (tell it how it is), but while I can see the folly in sticking a happy face sticker over an empty petrol gauge, I’ve come to realise that giving my attention to unwanted things, for example by talking or writing about them, just keeps them in my life.
So this blog may seem a little Pollyanna-ish, and writing a post can take a bit longer than it might, on those days when I first need to focus my thoughts towards positive inspiration, but when I reflect on some of the incredible changes in my life since I started playing the deliberate creation game, there’s no question in my mind that it’s a price worth paying.
