It’s been well established – here and elsewhere – that Feelings are the key to attracting people and situations into your life.  It’s the feelings which are the sticky stuff.  The timbre or quality of the stickiness is what designates what is being attracted.

I believe in this.  I’ve seen proof of it.  I use lots and lots of affirmations, I paint vivid pictures, talk a lot about it, write even more, been known to create a focus board or two. All in the pursuit of generating the good feelings I want to, anticipate having, when this thing or person appears in my life.

However, until the situation manifests, I am often faced with the current lay of the land which doesn’t always produce good feelings. It’s very easy to get smacked in the face.

Let’s say I want a new bed.  My thoughts are filled with the feeling of how good it will be when I have the new bed!  How I’ll dress it up with new sheets.  How I’ll rise with a song in my heart!  But the truth of the matter is I often get up with a sore back – which chases all those good feelings away.  The point being that life has a way of tempering our strong, attractive feelings.

So, it’s incumbent upon us to turn up the volume on our feelings whenever we can.  This was Paulette Terrel’s suggestion during our last session.  One way she thought of was the Hicks’ Rampage of Appreciation.  Which is just what it sounds like: a dedicated, full speed ahead, no holds barred list of everything you’re grateful for.  Paulette said I might add why I’m grateful for it, ramping up the intensity even more.  Why am I grateful for the sun, my car or all the wonderful people in my life?  Being specific in appreciation has a similar effect to being specific in writing.  It turns up the volume, making things clearer, more true,   It’s like listening to music. Sometimes when you turn the volume up, even a little, it fills the room and your heart, lifting spirits even higher!

How about finding a more juicy way to say it?  Instead of, “I want to lose weight,” how about, “I can’t wait until I can wear that sweater!”  In place of “I want a new job,” I might say, “I’m keeping my eyes open for a new opportunity!”

Whatever you can do to raise the intensity of the feeling, make it even better, fuller in your heart, the more attractive it will be.
