What do I need to know first?
Let's cut to the chase with the basics of what you need to know first about creating your reality:
First of all, there are a variety of terms used to refer to the process of creating your own reality, including manifesting, conscious creation, deliberate creation, and law of attraction.
Law of attraction is used frequently and is sometimes abbreviated to the acronym LOA.
You'll often hear those who are purposefully creating their reality referred to as "deliberate creators."
The most popular sources of information for this type of work include Abraham (as channeled by Esther Hicks), The Secret (Rhonda Byrne's DVD was the initial introduction for many people), and current authors like Wayne Dyer, Mike Dooley, Lynne McTaggart, Sandra Anne Taylor, as well as past authors like Napoleon Hill, Neville, Florence Scovel Shinn, and Wallace Wattles.
This information dates back in written form as long ago as the Emerald Tablet, roughly estimated to be between 2,000 to 5,000 years old. (Doreen Virtue authored "Divine Magic," which is an updated edition of The Kybalion, which was originally based on the Emerald Tablet.)
That's actually more than you really need to know, probably.
The fact is that this stuff works whether you believe it or understand it.
So let's get back to basics: The law of attraction, as defined by Abraham, is: "that which is like unto itself is drawn."
Which is commonly expressed as "like attracts like."
In the bestselling book Ask and It Is Given it says "Whatever you are giving your attention to causes you to emit a vibration, and the vibrations that you offer equal your asking, which equals your point of attraction."
Your vibration is simply based on your thoughts, and how those thoughts feel to you.
Every thought you think has a vibration to it (as does everything that exists -- it's all energy, and energy vibrates).
So your thoughts have a vibration that are radiating a signal which attract a matching signal back.
That's the law of attraction in a nutshell.
Which means your thoughts are much more important than most realize, since our entire reality unfolds as a result of them!
So managing your vibration through your thoughts is the key to deliberate creation. By doing so you can take creative control of what your life becomes.
And that's what Good Vibe University is here to help you accomplish!
It's also helpful to understand that some LOA experts use the terms attracting reality and creating reality interchangeably while others believe there is a very keen difference.
You may come to have your own understanding of how it works, but for now just suffice it to say that whether we're attracting or are creating our reality, the fact is that either way we are in charge. Or at least we can be when we practice these principles!
Congrats on finishing the first level intro to deliberate creation, but we're just getting our feet wet! Next up is how to get started …
