And so, as you are feeling fear, all it means is, “I’ve got a desire that my belief is not agreeing with. Now, what thought feels better about this? I’ve got hold of this stick, where my desire is here, my belief is here. What thought feels better?” And as you just softly talk to yourself about that subject, reaching for the thought that feels better, what happens is you shift the Energy.
It’s like the teeter-totter on the fulcrum, and it’s clearly down here, and you would like it to be up here. And so, you reach for the thought that feels better, and you reach for the thought that feels better, and you reach for the thought that feels better…and it doesn’t look like anything’s happening. And then, all of a sudden, one more time, you reach for the thought that feels better, and there it goes! The fear is gone without even knowing it, just by reaching for the thought that feels better. There is so much reward in just feeling better in your “now”. Because, so often, you’re wanting to reach for the thought that feels better because, “Whoop-de-doo, this is big time good fun!” In other words, “I want to get there! I would like every effort to take me there. I would like every thought that I think, and every time I go to a workshop, and every time I make a little bit of effort, I would like it to take me there!” And it’s irritating that it doesn’t take you there, to that manifestation.
We want you to not get so hung up on the manifestation, and start taking pleasure in the incremental relief. Pleasure in the fact that this feels a little better. Pleasure in the fact that you can actually, with your own will power and your own determination, choose a thought that feels better.

Just go through your day-to-day experience, let your exposure happen as it will, because Law of Attraction says that it must, and when and if you get an emotional response — whether it is positive or negative — stop in the middle of that feeling, and acknowledge whether it’s connecting you to Source or not. If it is connecting you to Source, go with it. Milk it for all it’s worth. If it isn’t connecting you to Source, but doing the opposite, then take your pivot: “I know what I don’t want. What is it that I do want?” Let the desire be born, and then try to find the feeling place of that. Try to remember something else like that. Come back into your power. And then stand on that new platform where you will now have access to things in your environment that a moment ago, you didn’t have access to. This is the eternal evolution of the spirit that is pulsing within you.

One thing, the only thing, that is really important for you to decide (and there is such power in decision): Nothing is more important than that I feel good. And we’re going to modify that to say: Nothing is more important than that I feel as good as I am capable of feeling. Nothing is more important than that I reach for a better-feeling thought. Nothing is more important than that I be aware of how I feel and that I want to feel good, and that I am willing to reach for a better-feeling thought. I’m not ever again going to beat upon myself for not being able to get to the goodest to the goodest to the goodest, to the goodest, of all thoughts. I’ll take the goodest thought that I can find, and I’ll pat myself on the back—and I’ll keep reaching. (excerpted from page 15->click below)
