I was just reflecting on the amount of energy and hope I got from a simple call from a producer putting together a pilot for the Oprah Winfrey show. In sharing this possibility and asking for prayers, this simple possibility spread energy and excitement to my family and friends as well. That got me to thinking. I have no idea of the outcome, and yet in the present moment I was excited and energized. Since the opportunity has not yet been manifested physically, then it is not the outcome only that produces the energy, but the hope of a possibility does the same thing.
Energy Has Attraction Power
That being the case, then we should dream hopeful dreams and set exciting goals all the time. Like Jessie Jackson always said, “Keep hope alive.” What are you hoping for and what are you doing to “keep hope alive.” It is that hope and faith that generate energy. When there is no hope, there is no energy. When there is no energy, we lose the power of attraction. When we are feel hopeless we may be pushing away the very people who could help us and attracting the company of those who are also in misery. Both hope and fear are contagious. At any given moment, we are either spreading joyful energy or sucking energy out of everyone we connect with, so we must be very careful of our power.
We live our lives one moment at a time and if we have the power to influence the current moment and make it joyful, exciting, and hopeful, then we should do it habitually. I also believe strongly that it is the energy of anticipation that helps to attract things to us. Whether it is anticipating the realization of an exciting goal or the fearful anticipation of a calamity or negative outcome, our focus (energy) draws whatever we are thinking about to us. I guess that’s why the Bible teaches us: “As a man thinketh, so is he.”
Energy, its focus and its source are all fascinating topics to me, Barbara. I love the energy that exudes from your writing!
AB SOL UTELY!!! I share in the excitement and it is a great ride!!! I am adding new possibilities regularly! Thank you my friend.
